EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
BY H.E. SMITH
The Lost Wager
He dreamed of blue-eyed Mary Thorne that night, and arose decidedly pleased that he should have reasonable excuse for calling at her father's house so soon. "I certainly can't be in love!" quoth he, mentally. "How Minnie would tease me if she thought I was in danger of suing for not only a farm but a wife."
Old Jabez Thorne was busily engaged of lance of wrath which he found impossible to shape into words. "Upon-my-word-sir!" he began; "you talk as if this was a mere matter of business!" Jack was puzzled enough. "It is the way in which I have always heretofore been accustomed to treat such affairs, sir."
"Heretofore you have been accustomed! And pray, sir, how many such little affairs have you had on your hands?"  shrieked old Thorne, growing purple in the face.
 "Oh, several, sir. I am not so inexperienced as you suppose," replied Jack, smiling.
 "Are you not ashamed to confess it?"
 "No; why should I  be?"
 "Get out of my garden, you young reprobate!" screamed Jabez, leaping up with lightning rapidity. "To come here and offer to buy my daughter, as if she were a patch of potatoes! Go, I say!"
 "Your daughter, Mr. Thorne!"
 "Yes my daughter, you Jack-a-dandy!"
"But I'm not bargaining for your daughter. I'm bargaining for that land across the river."
"Don't tell me!" said Mr. Thorne, tugging away at the fastening of his pocketbook; "your uncle's letter has informed me of your atrocious intention."
 "Will you allow me to see the letter, sir?" Thorne jerked it out of the compartment where it lay, and tossed it angrily toward Lacy. He opened it, and in spite of his annoyance and mortification burst into laughter at the sight of Minnie's dainty handwriting.
"It's nothing to laugh at, sir," exclaimed Thorne. "My dear Mr. Thorne, we are all the victims of a ridiculous mistake," said Lacy. "My uncle never wrote this letter; it is the work of my mischievous cousin Minnie. The genuine document must have been left behind."
"You didn't cme to look for a wife?"
  "I  came to purchase real estate."
  "Whew-w-w!"!" old Jabez Thorne whistled loud and long, then offered his hand to his guest with a hearty laugh. "Well, my boy, I'm heartily sorry I called you so many opprobrious names, but Mary and I supposed you were after her. I must go and tell the little minx what blunder we've made."
"Stay a moment, sir," said Jack, laying a detaining hand on the old gentleman's arm, as his quick eye detected the distant flutter of Miss Thorne's light dress among the trees; "will you allow me to make the necessary explanations myself? I am not at all certain that, after I have selected a home, I shall not enter into business-like negotiations for a charming young wife to preside over it."
