- river where George King now re sides. Silas seemed to be of the opin ion that Dan's boys were mischievous and always playing pranks of some kind. They sometimes even played them on their own father. "I remember when Dan bought a fine new wagon," said Silas, "and he had the boys throw in a .grist of wheat for him to take to Hildebrand's mill to be ground Into flour.' Dan told the boys for goodness sake to behave while he was away, 'and off he drove, proud as a - peacock to sit up high on the spring seat of his new wagon, Arriving at the mill Dan made some inquiry when it would be ready. The dusty miller looked in the" wagon and said, 'But where's the wheat'? Look ing behind him, Dan was thunderstruck. For an instant he waa so dumbfounded he couldn't speak. Then looking at Hlldebrand he exclaimed: 'Gosh! I've lost the whole grist!' But the endgate was missing. How did that get out? Poor Dan drove clear back home and there he found the sacks of wheat in the barn. The endgate was there with the sacks. Those peBky boys had pulled the sacks off the wagon just as their daddy was leaving the barn. "Sometimes boys and young men of the neighborhood would do ins pected things on the spur of the moment. - When Kirk Hull was teach ing the Hart, school, an exhibition was given in the evening. The house was packed and during the program Dan James decided to get out of the building. As he was crowding to wards the door, young Henry Fisher suddenly grabbed htm 4T the throat with one band and with' the other, drew back as It to strike him a terrible blow. Dan was scared stiff. John Killen stood hording in' his arms his little" son Monroe. Quick as a wink he handed the child to Bob Thomas, caught the festive Henry by the collar and .seat of his pants and threw him' out of the house so hard
