EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
By H.E. Smith
The Last Wager
"The whole affair is so ridiculous!" she exclaimed. She adjusted the moss roses nevertheless and tripped demurely into the parlor. Now, if there was a determined point in Jack Lacy's character it was his aversion to women in general, and if there was any one thing on which he prided himself it was his decided old bachelorism. Imagine his vexation and dismay, therefore, when, after a formal introduction, old Mr. Thorne withdrew, leaving him with the pretty creature in white muslin and roses. It was embarrassing enough, particularly as Mary blushed every time he looked at her, and evinced an exceedingly great disposition to laugh.
"Well," thought Jack, "the manners and customs of the locality are rather odd, to say the least of it. I came to consult an old man about purchasing land of him, and he bounces out of the room, and sends in his daughter. What on earth am I to say to her, I'd like to know?
Mary, glancing shyly in the direction of her companion, came to the conclusion that he had "beautiful Spanish eyes," and a mustache decidedly superior in style to the hirsute adornments of the young gentlemen at Thornville.
Mr. Lacy looked up at the ceiling and down at the carpet, and wondered what the consequences would be were he to escape through the open French window. That would not be a very dignified proceeding, however, so he resigned himself to destiny by making some original remark on the weather.
It had the much desired effect of breaking the ice, however, and he was agreeably surprised with the arch vivacity of Miss Thorne. Only once did she seem confused; it was when she had been describing a fine grove of cedars that belonged to her father's land, regretting at the same time that he had contemplated the sale of it.
"I believe I should like to become the purchaser," said Jack. "Your father has told  you that I had some idea of settling here?" Mary grew scarlet, and murmured some sentence or other. The conversation was effecutally checked, and Jack, perplexed at the effect, for which he could perceive no visible cause,  rose to take leave.
"Will you mention to your father, Miss Thorne, that I shall call to see him about the matter tomorrow morning?" he asked. All the moss roses in Mr.Thorne's rose garden could not have rivaled the hot glow on Mary's cheeks as she fled out of the room without a word of reply. "Very singular family this," muttered Jack, slowly drawing on his gloves and walking down the broad garden path.
"But she is an uncommonly pretty girl—and I shall certainly take an early walk through the grove of cedars tomorrow morning, before breakfast.
