EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
BY H.E. SMITH
The Last Wager
"How-ha-from my old college chum, Chester as I live. Remarkable change in his hand-writing, but time alters us all. Haven't heard from him in twenty years, and-hallo! What is this? A pretty cool request, upon my word-nephew wants a wife, and has heard that I possess a daughter-has lots of money-wants me to aid him with my well-known experience in such matters. What does the rascal mean?" Kabez, the fringe of gray hair that surrounded his bald head standing absolutely erect with indignation. "I'll send Jeffers to kick the impudent young scamp out of the house.
With a moment's reflection came calmness. "Well, after all, I don't see what there is in the matter to make me so foolishly angry. Guess I'll see what Mary says. An excellent family these Chesters-and this letter is just like Zebedee Chester-he always was singular in his notions. Rather unlike the ordinary method of coming to an understanding on such matters, but there's nothing like a dash of originality in this world, and if the boy is rich and Mary don't object—At all events I'll see him on this subject."
Jabez Thorne thrust the letter into his pocket and strode determinedly into the parlor, where  young Lacy was quietly awaiting his appearance. The old gentleman's face was scarlet with embarrassment; he was half disposed to be angry with his guest's cool self-pose with old Zebedee Chester-I won't turn the puppy out of doors quite yet."
"I suppose it is healthy?" asked Lacy, blandly. "What is healthy?" "Your property. Sometimes in these low grounds diseases are apt to prevail, and-" "Does he expect my Mary has the fever and ague?" thought old Thorne, leaping briskly out of his chair as if an insect had stung him. "I'll send my daughter to you, young man-that will settle the business at once."
Before Lacy could express his surprise his choleric host had banged the door behind him and disappeared. Mary Thorne's astonishment was even greater than her father's had been. She was attired in white muslin, with a bouquet of crimson moss rose-buds in her hair, for some rural party or picnic, and at first absolutely refused to enter the parlor.
"What an idea!" she exclaimed, blushing to the very tips of those tiny shell-like ears. "To be put on exhibition like one of your prize cattle! No, indeed! Let the young man go back from where he came from. A petty impression he must have of the ladies in this quarter of the globe!"
"But, my love, Zebedee Chester is one of my oldest friends, and the young man is really a very fine looking fellow, and rich into the bargain. Go in and talk to him a little while, there's a good girl! I can't stand it a minute longer." Old Jabez wiped his forehead, on which the perspiration was standing in big beads. Mary burst into an uncontrollable fit of laughter.
