EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
BY H.E. SMITH
The Lost Wager
The trunks were all packed and corded, and the carpet-bags were piled up in the corner of the capacious, old-fashioned hall.
How melancholy they looked, those emblems of parting and adieux. Not even the merry laughter of the two or three young girls, who were gathered around a stalwart, handsome fellow of about twenty-five, could entirely banish an impalpable something of sadness from the scene. Cousin Jack was going away, the general mischief maker, torment and tease of the whole family, and Mr. Chester, sitting by the distant window, wiped his spectacles every five minutes, and declared, pettishly, that the type of the evening paper was a terrible trial to old eyes.
"Aye, you may laugh, girls," said Jack, applying himself vigorously to the refractory lock of a portmanteau. "Perhaps you may one day discover that isn't such a laughing matter. Think of the loss the family is going to sustain in my excellency."
"But you'll come back soon, Jack dear," coaxed Minnie Chester, the prettiest and most roguish of all cousins, and the one who kept up a perfect fire of practical jokes and girlish tricks at his expense.
There she sat, on the biggest trunk of collection, her brown curls hanging about her round face, and her eyes sparkling with a curious mixture of fun and tears.
"I'm not at all certain of that, Miss Minnie," said Jack, decisively. "If I succeed in finding a location to suit me, I shall probably decide to settle permanently at Thornville and turn landed proprietor on my own account."
"Only imagine our Jack a gentleman of property!" laughed Minnie, appealing to her sisters. "I don't see anything so very ridiculous in the idea," remarked the young man, rather piqued at the amusement of his relatives. "At all events, there's one incalculable advantage that will result from my departure."
"And what is that, Mr. Oracle?" "That fact that you've played your last freak on me, you tormenting little minx!" "Don't be so certain of that, Cousin Jack!" said Minnie, shaking her long curls. "What will you venture I don't bestow a parting trick on you yet? Ah! I haven't settled with you for several little pieces of impertinence; but pray don't imagine they are forgotten, sir!'
