8ynople— Barton Bayne's an orphan goes to live with hia uncle
Peabody Baynes and his- Aunt Deel on a farm on Rattleroad In a
neighborhood called Ltckltyspllt about the year 1826 He meets Sally
Dunkelberg about hla own age bnt socially of a class above the
Bayne8es and la fascinated by her pretty face and fine clothes Barton
also meets Roving Kate known In the neighborhood aa the "Silent
Woman” Amos Grlmshaw a young son of the richest man In the town-
ship la a visitor at the Baynes home and Bovlng Kate tell8 the boys'
fortunes predicting a bright future for Barton and death on the gallows
for Amos Barton meets 81Ias Wright Jr a man prominent in public
affairs who evinces much Interest in the boy Barton learns of the
power of money when Mr Grlmshaw threatens to take the Baynes farm
unless a note which he holds Is paid Now In his sixteenth year Bar-
ton on his way to the post office at Canton meets a stranger and they
ride together They encounter a highwayman who shoots and kills the
stranger Barton’s horse throws him and runs away As the murderer
bends over the stranger Barton throws a stone which he observes
wonnda the thief who makes off at once A few weeks later Bart leaves
home to enter Michael Hacket’a school at Canton
"There comes Colonel Hand” said
Mrs Hacket aa she looked ont of the
window "The poor lonely Whig I He
has nothing to do these days bnt sit
around the tavern" '
Colonel Hand was a surly-looklng
man beyond middle age with large
eyes that showed signs of dissipation
He had a small dark tnft beneath his
lower Up and thin black untidy balr
"What do ye think has happened ?”
he asked as he looked down upon ns
with a majestic movement of hia hand
“The son o’ that old Bucktail Ben
Grlmshaw haa been arrested and
brought to JaU for murder”
"For murder?” asked Mr and Mrs
Hacket In one breath
“For bloody murder sir” the colonel
went on "It was the shooting of that
man in the town o Ballybeen a few
weeks ago Things have come to a
pretty pass In this country I should
say Talk about law and order we
don’t know what It means here and
why should we? The party In power
Is avowedly opposed to it — yes sir It
has fattened upon bribery and corrup-
tion Do you think that the son o’
Ben Grlmshaw will receive punish-
ment even if he is proved guilty? Not
it all He will be protected— you mark
my words"
He bowed and left ns When the
door had closed behind hfm Mr Hacket
"Another victim horned by the
Snapdragon! If a man were to be
slain by a bear back in the woods
Colonel Hand wonld look for guilt In
the opposition party Michael Henry
whatever the truth may be regarding
the poor boy In JaU we are in no way
responsible Away with sadness I
What Is that?”
Mr Hacket inclined his ear and then
added: "Michael Henry aays that be
may be innocent and that we had bet-
ter go and see If we can help him
Mow I hadn’t thought o’ that Had
you Mary?”
“No" the girl answered
“We must be letting Mike go ahead
of us always” said her father “Ton
saw the crime I believe" turning to
I told them all I knew of It
"Upon my word I like you my
brave lad" said the schoolmaster "I
heard of all this and decided that you
would he a help to Michael Henry and
a creditable student Come let us
go and pay our compliments to the
The schoolmaster and I went over
to Mr Wright’s house — a white frame
building which had often been pointed
out to me
Mrs Wright a flne-looktng Indy who
met us at the door said that the sen-
ator had gone over to the mill with his
"We’ve plenty of time and we’ll wait
for him” said the schoolmaster
“I see him!” said little John as he
and Rnth ran to the gnte and down
' the rough plank wnlk to meet him
We saw him coming a little way
town the street In hla shirt-sleeves
with bis barrow In front of him He
stopped and lifted little John In his
arms and after a moment put him
down and embraced Hu th
“Well I see ye still love the tender
embrace o’ the wheelbarrow" snld Mr
Hacket aa we approached the senator
"My embrace la the tenderer of the
two” the lutter laughed with a look
at hts hands
He recognized me and seized my
two hands and shook them as he said :
"Upon my word here Is my friend
Burt I was not looking for you here”
He put his hand on my head now
higher than hla shoulder and said:
“I was not looking for you here”
He asked about my aunt and uncle
nd expressed Joy at learning that I
ns now under Mr Hacket
"I shnll be here for a number of
eks” he said "end I shall want to
see yon often Maybe well go hunt
lng some Saturday”
We bade him good morning and he
went on with his wheelbarrow which
was loaded I remember with stoat
sacks of meal and flour
We went to the school at half past
eight What a thrilling place It was
with Its 78 children and Its three
rooms How noisy they were as they
waited In the schoolyard for the bell
to ring I I stood by the doorslde look-
ing very foolish I dare say for I
knew not what to do with myself My
legs encased In the tow breeches felt
aa If they were on fire I saw that
most of the village boys wore bought
en clothes and fine boots I looked
down at my own leather and was s
tower of shame on a foundation of
greased cowhide Sally Dunkelberg
came In with some other girls and pre-
tended not to see me That was the
hardest blow I suffered -’
Among the handsome well-dressed
boys of the village was Henry Wills —
the boy who' had stolen my water-
melon I had never forgiven him for
that or for the killing of my little hen
The bell rang and we marched Into
the big room while a fat girl with
crinkly hair played on a melodeon
Henry and another boy tried to shove
me out of line and a big paper wad
struck the side of my head as we were
marching In and after we were seated
a cross-eyed freckled girl In a red
dress made a face at me
It was on the whole the unhapplest
day of my life During recess I
slapped a boy’s face for calling me a
rabbit and the two others who came
I Saw a Face and Figure Behind the
Grated Door of One of These Cell
to help him went awny full of fear
and astonishment for I had the
strength of a young moose In me those
dayst After that they began to make
friends with me
In the noon hour a tnnn came to me
la the schoolyurd with a subpena for
the examination of Amos Grlmshaw
and explained Its meunlng
While I was talking with this man
Sally passed me walking with another
girl nnd said:
"Hello Bart !’’
I observed 'that Henry Wills joined
them and walked down the street at
the side of Sally I got my first pang
of jealousy then
When school was out that after-
noon Mr Hacket said I could have an
hour to see the sights of the village
so I set out feeling much depressed
I walked toward the' house of Mr
Wright and saw him digging potatoes
in the garden and went In X knew
that he was my friend
"Well Bart how do yon like
school?" he asked
"Not very well" I answered
"Of course notl It’s new to yon
now and yon miss your annt and
uncle Stick to 1L You’ll make
friends and get Interested before long”
"I want to go home” I declared
"Now let’s look at the compass” he
suggested "You're lost for a minute
and like all lost people you’re heading
the wrong way Don't be misled by
selfishness Forget what you want to
do and think of what we want you to
do We want you to make a man of
yourself Yon must do It for the sake
of those dear people who have done
ao much for you The needle points
toward the achoolhouse yonder”
He went on with hla work and as I
walked away I understood that the
needle he referred to was my con-
science I went about my chores There was
to be no more wavering In my con-
duct At the supper table Mr Hacket
kept us laughing with songa and jests
and stories The boy John having
been reproved for rapid eating Hurled
hla spoon upon the floor
"Those In favor of hla punishment
will please say aye?” said the school-
master I remember that we had a divided
house on that important question
The schoolmaster said : “Michael
Henry wishes him to be forgiven on
promise of better conduct but for the
next offense he shall ride the bad-
ger" This meant lying for a painful mo-
ment across his father’s knee
The promise was given and onr
merrymaking resumed The district
attorney whom I had met before
came to see me after supper and asked
more questions and advised me to talk
with no one about the shooting with-
out his consent Soon he went away
and after I had learned 'my lessons
Mr Hacket said :
"Let ns walk up to the JaU and
spend a few minutes with Amos”
We hurried to the JaU The sheriff
a stout-built stern-faced man admit-
ted us
"Can we see the Grlmshaw boy?”
Mr Hacket Inquired
"I guess ao" he answered as he
lazily rose from hla chair and took
down a bunch of large keys which had
been hanging on the wall "Hla fa-
ther baa Jnst left”
He spoke In a low solemn tone
which Impressed me deeply as he pat
a lighted candle In the band of the
schoolmaster He led na through a
door Into a narrow corridor He thrust
a big key into the lock of a heavy Iron
grating and threw it open and bade ns
step In We entered an Ul-smeUlng
stone-floored room with a number of
cells against Its rfear wall He locked
the door behind us I saw a face and
figure In the dim candle light behind
the grated door of one of these cells
How lonely and dejected and helpless
was the expression of that figure 1 The
sheriff went to the door and un-
locked It
"Hello Grlmshaw” he said sternly
"Step out here”
It all went to my heart — the man-
ners of the sheriff so like the cold Iron
of his keys and doors — the dim candle
light the pale frightened youth who
walked toward us We shook his hand
and he said that he was glad to see
us I saw the scar under his left ear
and reaching out upon his cheek
vthlch my stone had made and knew
that he bore the mark of Cain'
He asked If he could see me alone
and the sheriff shook his head and said
sternly :
"Against the rales”
"Amos I’ve a boy o’ my own an’ I
feel for ye” said the schoolmaster
"I’m going to come here now and
then to cheer ye np and bring ye some
books to read If there's any word
of advice I can give ye — let me know
Have ye a lawyer?”
"There's one coming tomorrow”
"Don't say a word about the case
hoy to anyone but your lawyer— mind
We left him and went to our home
and beds I to spend half the night
thinking of my discovery since which
for some reason I had no doubt of
the guilt of Arnds but I spoke not of
It to anyone and the secret worried
Next morning on my way to school
passed a scene more strange and
memoruble than any In my long ex-
perience I saw the sbubby figure of
old Benjamin Grlmshaw walking In
the side path His hands were In bis
pockets Ills eyes bent upon the ground
Ids lips moving as If be were in deep
thought llovlug Kute the ragged
silent woman who for the fortune of
Amos hud drawn a gibbet the shadow
of which was now upon him walked
slowly behind the money lender point-
ing ut him with her bony forefinger
Her stern eyes watched him as the cut
watches when Its prey Is near it She
did not notice me Silently her feet
wrupped In rugs she walked behlud
the inqn always pointing at him
When he slopped she stopped Whin
he resumed his slow progress she fol-
lowed It thrilled me purtly because
I hud begun to believe In the weird
mysterious power of the Slleut Wom-
an v I hud twenty minutes to spare
and so I turned Into the main street
behind and close by tneiu I saw him
stop and buy some cruckers nnd an
apple and a piece of cheese Mean-
while she stood pointing at him He
saw but guve no heed to her He
walked ulong the street In front of
the stores she following as before
How patiently she followed 1
I started for the big schoolhouse and
a number of boys Joined me with
pleasant words
Sally ran past na with that low-
lived Wills boy who carried her books
for her Hla father had gone Into the
grocery business and Henry wore
boughtea clothes I couldn’t tell Sally
how mehn he was I was angry and
decided not to speak to her until she
spoke to me I got along better In
school althor here was some tit-
terinp when I l eel ted probably be-
cause I had a broader dialect and big-
ger boots than the boys in the village
I Meet President Van Buren and Am
Cross-Examined by Mr Grlmshaw
The days vent easier after that
The boys took me Into their play and
some of them were most friendly- I
had a swift foot and a good eye as
well as a strong arm and could hold
my own at three old cat— a kind of
baseball which we played In the
schoolyard Saturday came As we
were sitting down at the table that
morning the younger children clung
to the knees of Mr Hacket and
begged him to take them up the river
In a boat
"Good Lord! What wilt thou give
me when I grow childless?” he ex-
claimed with his arms around them
"That was the r -estlon of Abraham
and It often cornea to me Of course
we shall go But hark I Let na hear
what the green chair has to say”
There was a moment of silence and
then he went on with a merry laugh
"Right ye are Michael Henry) Yon
are always right my boy — God bless
your soull We shall take Bart with
us an’ doughnuts an cheese an’ cook-
ies an’ dried meat for all”
From that moment I date' the be-
ginning of my love for the occupant
of the green chair In the home of Mi-
chael Hacket Those good people were
Catholics and I a Protestant and yet
this Michael Henry always Insisted
upon the most delicate consideration
for my faith and feelings
“I promised to spend the morning
In the field with Mr Wright If I may
have your consent sir" I said
"Then we shall console ourselves
knowing that you are In better com-
pany” said Mr Hacket
Mr Dunkelberg called at the house
In Ashery lane to see me after
"Bart If yon will come with me 1
should like to order some store clothes
and boots for you” he aald In his
squeaky voice
For a moment I knew not how to
answer him Nettled as I had been by
Sally’s treatment of me the offer was
Ilka rubbing ashes on the soreness of
my spirit
I blushed and surveyed my garments
and said:
“I guess I look pretty bad don’t II"
"You’ look all right but I thought
maybe you would feel better In softer
raiment especially If you care to go
around much with the young people I
am an old friend of the family and 1
guess It would bp proper for me to
buy the clothes for you When yon
are older yon can buy a suit for me
some time If yon care to"
It should be understood that well-to-do
people In the towns were more
particular about their dress those
days than now
TU ask my annt and nncle about
It” I proposed
“That’s all right” he answered “I’m
going to drive to your house this after-
noon and your uncle wishes you to
go with me We are all to have a talk
with Mr Grlmshaw"
He left me and I went over to Mr
They told me that he was cutting
corn In the back lot where I found
“Mr Dunkelberg came this morning
and wanted to buy me some new
clothes and boots” I said
The senator stopped work and stood
looking at me with hla hands upon hla
"I wouldn't let him do It if I were
you” he said thoughtfully
Just then I saw a young man come
running toward ns In the distant field
Mr Wright took out his compass
"Look here’ he said “you see the
needle points due north”
He took a lodestone ont of hla
pocket and holding It near the com-
pass moved It back and forth The
needle followed it
The young man came up to ns
breathing deeply Perspiration was
rolling off his face He was much ex-
cited und spoke with some difficulty
"Senator Wright" he gasped "Mrs
Wright sent me down to tell you that
President Van Buren Is at the house”
I remember vividly the look of mild
amusement In the senator’s face and
the serene calmness with which he
looked at the young man and sc Id to
him :
"Tell Mrs Wright to make him com-
fortable In our easiest chair and to
say to the president that I shall be np
