EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
BY H.E. SMITH
Serving the Writ
"No, marm, 'taint snowin', or rainin' either. Ye see, Mr. Grimp was jest showin' me the water privileges about the place, an tryin' to see how much a rain bar'l would hold," responded the Squire sarcastically, pointing toward th aforesaid barrel.
"Brother Butterfield, will you be so kind as to attend to the business on which we came?" said Mr. Grimp sternly.
"Certainly I will. Here, Widow Barney, is a writ from Mr. Grimp, notifyin' you to give up these 'ere premises. "I will take charge of that," said young Harwood, rather haughtily. "I will call upon you tomorrow, Squire, and settle the matter.  would say, also, Mr. Grimp, that the time for redemption not having expired, the mortgage and costs on this lady's place have been paid in to the County Clerk and you will not be troubled in caring for it further."
After that-will, Mr. Grimp made some indistinct reply, and the Squire very profuse and incoherent apologies; then they took their leave as best they could, feeling very awkward, mortified and humiliated.
They did not go home together, either, nor ever after speak of the evening's experience to each other. However a month later, when Tom Harwood married the widow, the Squire was observed to shake his head mournfully and murmur:
"If it hadn't been for Old Grimp comin' jest as he did that night, things would have been different. Widow Barney never would have married that conceited young Harwood—never!"
 As for Mr. Grimp, his face and his prayers grew longer day by day, and the Sunday following the marriage he spoke feelingly of "this vale of tears," the "vanity of human expectations," and the "uncertainty of earthly things," and when the collection was raised for the poor he sadly gave a torn piece of currency his grocer had refused the day before.—Hearth and Home.
