EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
BY H.E. SMITH
Serving the Writ
"That is, you want some scarecrow to hold over her to bring her to terms?" suggested the Squire, looking keenly at his visitor.
Mr. Grimp nodded. "You will attend to it, Brother Butterfield?" he asked. "I'll tend to it," said the Squire. Then Mr. Grimp bowed solemnly, said "Farewell, Brother Butterfield, and passed out into the sunshine—his figure almost too thin and dried up to cast a shadow in the bright sunlight, yet sufficient to cast moral shadow and unhappiness over homes and lives around and about him.
For a moment following Mr. Grimp's departure the Squire's face was full of conflicting emotions. He arose from his chair, and his small boot-heels clattered on the office floor as he paced hurriedly to and fro.
"The old skinflint!" he muttered, "jest as if I didn't see through him like a book! He wants to convert the widow into Mrs. Grimp number two, an' if she ain't willin—maybe she's refused him already—he wants me to make her think she'd better be. That's what he wants. Ha! Ha! I reckon there's a widower that Widow Barney or any other woman would just be proud to git; he's not a thousand miles off neiher"—and the Squire paused smilingly before a small mirror, adjusted his collar, and smoothed the few hairs carefully over the bald spot on his head. "Not so old after all; and a slight better looking than old Grimp! Guess he didn't know who he was comin'to, did he? An' he wants me to stave a writ on Widow Barney. George! I'll save it myself an'git in ahead of him! Big joke it'll be on Grimp! Ha, ha!"
In the main the Squire was correct in his cogitations. To secure the lively, pretty, sensible young widow as a help-meet in the place of the "late lamented" was precisely what Mr. Grimp desired. He had at different times made advances in that direction, but receiving only negative replies he concluded to try a mild coercion, and "bring her to her senses," as he inwardly called it. Now, singularly enough, the Squire also was a widower, and he, too, was matrimonially inclined toward the widow Barney. He had never made any proposition to that lady, thinking, in his conceit, he had only to offer himsel to be accepted at once, and she be glad of the opportunity.
