EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
BY H.E. SMITH
The Lost Wager
"Sit down, you wild little elf," said Olive, gently forcing her sister into a chair, "and explain this mysterious riddle!"
"Well, you know papa left me to look over his letter to Mr. Thorne—and he was detained longer than he expected—almost an hour in fact, and I couldn't help amusing myself by writing a parody on the letter. "A parody?" "Yes—you remember somebody was telling us what a beautiful daughter Mr. Thorne had—so I wrote that Jack was in scarce of a wife, and had heard of Miss Thorne, and wanted to settle in life, and all that sort of thing, in short, wherever papa had written land, or estate, I wrote wife! Wasn't it fun?" said the little maiden, her eyes dancing with diablerie. You know I never once thought of sending the letter; I only wanted to read it to Jack when I went downstairs.
Well, I signed it, with a great flourish of trumpets, and just then who should come in but papa and the stranger. Of course I fled—and when I came back the letter was sealed and safe in Jack's pocket-book, and Olive, it was the wrong letter."
"It was rather a dim light—and papa's eyes are not as keen as they were wont to be, and my impertinent missive was gone, while the real bona fide letter lay there, amongst a heap of discarded papers. I hadn't courage to confess my misdemeanors, papa is so opposed to my innocent little jokes—and Jack is off with that indescribable letter!
I shall certainly win the sleeve buttons, Olive, but what a tornado there will be, when my mischief leaks out." Minnie looked so bewitchingly lovely in her alternate paroxysms of terror and laughter, that Olive grave old sister though was, had not the heart to lecture her as roundly as she deserved.
The crimson sunset of the very next evening shone radiantly into the special sanctum of the worthy old Jabez Thorne, of Thornville, Justice of the Peace, and chairman of all the agricultural meetings for ten miles around. It was no scholarly-looking library, like that of his ancient comrade Chester, but a square, light room, with four un-curtained windows and ornamented with numerous black-framed engravings of prize cattle and giant turnips. He was seated in a feather-cushioned arm-chair, looking over the files of an agricultural journal, to find some coveted information on the subject of "phosphates" and "superphosphates," when a servant brought him a card and a letter.
"The gentleman is in the parlor sir." Jabez Thorne laid aside his newspaper, glanced at the card, which bore the simple inscription, "John Lacy"—then at the letter, which purported to be the introductory to that individual.
