EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
BY H.E. SMITH
Serving the Writ
For a moment the stranger remained within the barrel and the Squire among the vines where he had fallen, both too amazed and confronted to know what to do. But only for a moment; then they extricated themselves and stepped out into the moonlight, the Squire with coat torn clear to the back, and the stranger very wet and dripping. And thus and there, face to face, they met.
"Brother Butterfield!"
"Mr. Grimp!"
There was a momentary silence after these exclamations of astonished recognition. Mr. Grimp was the first to break it. "Will you allow me to inquire, Brother Butterfield, what you were doing on the roof of my house at this late hour?"
"Certainly you may, Mr. Grimp. I came because—that is—I came to sarve that writ of ourn," answered the Squire, relieved to find some excuse.
"Ah!"
"Yes; an' I'd like to know what business you had up there, Mr. Grimp?" "I came to see you serve it," said Mr. Grimp, with a perceptible tightening of his thin lips. "Well," said the squire, rapidly recovering his composure, "If  your writ don't stick bettr'n you did on that 'ere roof, it won't amount to nothin', that's all."
What reply Mr. Grimp would have made to this request is not known, for just then the door opened, and Tom Harwood and the widow, alarmed by the noise, came out. Both the Squire and Mr. Grimp would gladly have avoided an interview; indeed they turned to hasten away, but were too late. The widow recognized them at once.
"Why, Mr. Grimp! And Squire Butterfield, too!" she exclaimed with the most charming of smiles. "why I thought it was burglars, or horse-thieves, or something, and I was so frightened. And, why, Mr. Grimp! You are real wet, aren't  you? Is it raining or snowing?" And she held out her little hand to catch the falling drops.
