The Strange Courtship of the glehorn Brothers. They Hail An Intercstinc 'Possum. Hunt, Uut the Old Man Won Her Affections — .\u 'Amusing Sketch of Country Ofo In Kasfc Tennessee. [COPYRIGHT, 1S91.1 Men who term themselves social philosophers tell v,s that the time is rapidly coming when we shall have no distinctive typos "f the genu/t /wmo in this country. They declare that we are all tending toward physical and mental uniformity and that in a few centuries from now we shall all be a, sort of human fieM of pe.is. I think that this is kindly thrown out as a, hint to writers who are endeavoring; to portray character: a reminder that if they have characters whom they wish to delineate, they should do so at once or rtm the risk of losing the opportunity. Having mused over this hint .and having accepted it in all its warning-significance, I hasten to give the following true story: A number of years had elapsed since there had been a' school in that "thin settlement" of East Tennessee, which lies some.ten or fifteen miles -west oi Tom Hughes' Engiish colony. _ In the •winter wild animals slept under the old log school-bouse, and in the autumn rich clusters of grapes hung- from the eaves. The boys had grown up" in so strong a contempt of education that once, -when a dapper little vacation sophomore came up from Nashville and attempted to open,a school, they seized him roughly and, .carrying him down into the dense woods, "bumped him un- gently against the uneven bark of a red oak tree. The sophomore, \ipon gaining his liberty, caught up his Derby hat and vanished. Recently some of the more liberal- minded men of the community decided thatthe youths and maidens of the land must be educated, and knowing that their laudable object could not be accomplished by the employment of male teachers, decided to engage a woman. Miss Floi'a Hightower, an old maid of frisky shyness and hemplike hair, was engaged. She was so frail in structure and so innocent of expression, that the anxious fathers and mothers knew that their boys, rough but manly, wouJd not turn her out of the house, and moreover would rally in her defense should the girls, scarcely less rough than the boys, attempt to lead her off THEY -WALKED HOME WITH HEB. into the woods and carry her through, that classic rural pastime of "bumping-. Among 1 the "students" were two "boys, John and Alf Grigglchorn, sons of old Pete Grigglehom, the man who, some time ago, swore on a .wager that he could butt a -well-known goat off the county bridge. When the surg-eons had trepannedhishead \vithapiece of sheet- iron, he remarked that he had ever been open to conviction and that his estimate oi that goat had been revised. Shortly after the school was'opened, the Grigglehom boys fell in love with the teacher. They were so devoted and so jealous that one would not permit the other to see her alone, and at evening, when she set out for the house where she boarded, they marched along with her, each bent upon choking ofi- what the other attempted to say. One evening, when they had been walking for some time in silence, Alf .remarked: "Miss Flora, Iwanter say that I love you strong enough to move a saw-log. The truth is, I have seed a good deal of calico in my life but .that yon air about the stunniest lot of goods I ever seed. An.' now Iwanter say suthin' that I kaint git a.chance ;'to say in private, that I want you to fling up this here school an' many me. I don't kere a snap about edycation so long-as I kin git you. Hear me?" "Don't pay.no attention to him, Miss Flora," John spoke up before she had time to ' reply. ."He's allus saving suthin' that he don't mean. It has been my aim ever sense I fust seed you to marry you, an' ef you know which side yo' bread is buttered on you will let him slide an' take me, for I am a honey from way up the creek while he is a slouch from the frog-pond." "Oh," Miss Flora giggled, "how happy could I be with .either were tnther dear charmer away." , "You bet I'm a charmer," said Alf. "I'm charmer enough to make you a better husband than this knock-kneed thing that is .walkin' along with us.'' "That is all right," John rejoined, "but when it comes to channinM'm thar.", - ' "Oh, boys, I really don't know wliiclv of you to take. I had thought that I should never be married, I had read so much of the unhappmess of the matrimonial state that'I was determined to live on'in single contentment; but -ah! my dears, yon have completely' upset me." . "But which one of us has upset yon the most?" Alf demanded. "Really, my dear, I can not say." "Don't you sorter think T have?? John asked. "Oh, my dear, you must not ask, me such a Question. Bcrttt of :you malr« THT Ij^art gush with' joy, and yctenelvof you tuttkes me sad—ah, sad, for I ca,n not •narry but one of you a,nd T do not know ••''if h ono to accept." „ This recital, with but slight variation, was gone through, with day after day. Old Pete, the boys' father, was deeply amused, and sometimes he would come over to the school-house at evening and, walking a short distance behind the lovers, would follow them, home, laughing in first one sleeve and then the other. He divided his mirth between the two youngsters, and. was careful, such being his strong- sense o-f justice, not to laugh in one sleeve more than he did in the other. One night while the boys, sitting by the log fire in the teacher's boarding-house, were painting in rude but strong colors pictures of their adoration. Old Pete came in and after a time remarked: "I'have been a- thinking as to the best way to settle this here affair, boys, hut, like the teacher,. I don't know which one's claim to tirg-e; but it ought to be settled soon, for the school will busl after awhile an', then the teacher wil have to go away. Now let me see." He mused for several moments anc then continued: •'You boys ought to be willin' to agree to most any sort of settlement. I woule \JL-' TKEV SAT BKFOKE THE FIRE. suggest rasslin' or boxin' or somethin' else hi that line, but we air g-ettin' most too civilized up here to resort to sich. Now, I tell you what you do as an improvement on the old an' worn-out methods. Divide the "dogs an' go out ia the woods in different directions, an' the one that can ketch the "biggest possum may have the girl. Do you agree?" The boys, having been driven to such. extremes, were willing to resort to almost any competition and the teacher declared it would be a rare joke, it was so awfully funny. The boys went home, called up the dogs, divided them into separate packs and started out.. It was agreed that they should deliver the marsupial fruits of their hunt at then- father's house. " The old man had said that he' would conduct the teacher thither in time to reach a decision. It must have been nearly twelve o'clock at night when the boys returned.- Alf came first with an enormous possum, but John soon followed with' one fully as large. "Wall, this do beat any thing I ever did see," said the old man. The teacher tittered musically and said that she had never seen apy thing half so funny. "And," she added, "how did they manage to get them the same size? It wouldn't occur again I don't suppose in a hundred years, and it shows that the possums are so just in this matter that they are not willing to render a decision jn favor of either dear party. , I •never saw the like, I am sure." '•Hold on," said John; "I think you are all too fast. My possum is the biggest an- I will bet money on. Hisn mout be a little fatter, but mine's got the biggest frame. This here is a serious matter an' I want these possums weighed." "Now you hit me!" Alf.exclaimed. "I know mine is the biggest, an' I'll bet my I MARRIED HER i:ySELF." ears on it. Come, fetch out the woighin' machine." - ' • "I'll tell you what you do, boys," said old Pete, -'dress the beauties an'then we can see how much they weigh. Hurry up." . . The boys agreed and when the possum had been dressed,the old man reremarked: "Now. we kin git at the jes- tice of the matter. : I declar', boys, I never did see two animals so neat of a size, an'-do you know I th'ought suthin' of the sort would happen. I never did see sich a courtship.. Yes, an', I was might'ly interested, so much so that I. concluded not to 'depend on possums that mout turn out the same size, an,' I spoke to the teacher here, :an' while you fellers was a listenin'fur the dogs to tree, why her an' me went over to see a jestice of the peace an' was married. Say, boys, fling- them possums up on '.the roof of the house an'let the frost fall, on 'em an'-to-morrer we'll 'have a wed- din' dinner that will make old Andy Jackson waller in his grave." The teacher tittered musiaallv. A MONKEY BURGLAR. Tie A( f cmpt x to Rob a Hornbill'H Jfi-st, But I* Ciulfrlit T5y the Lo;j. I once \vitHRSS3d a very comical incident on an estate in the Lang-kat district, writes a correspondent. I was superintending the cutting of a "planting- road" through dense swamp iung-le, wlien I hoard a great hubbub "compounded of shouting and laug-Jiing of men and chattering- of monkeys. On arriving at the spot I found a crowd of coolies, Chinese. Kl'mgs and Malaj's looking up into a lofty damstr tree, in the branches of which about a dozen of the common black macaque monkeys were leaping about in great excitement, while one of their number, who appeared in some way to be fixed to the trunk of the tree, wn.s uttering- the most doleful cries. What had happened to him was at once apparent. He had espied the entrance to a tempting-looking cavity, which he rightly judg-ed to contain eggs or nestlings, and at once inserted an exploring paw. Unluckily for him the nest was that of a hoi-nbill and the lady of the house being at home, the would-be burglar was in a most unpleasant sense "brought up before the beak." None of the other monkeys, who had by this time increased to about twenty, attempted to go to his assistance, but contented themselves with raising a chorus of yells which, joined to those of the delighted coolies, were perfectly deafening. Suddenly there was a rushing sound overhead and the male bird returned. Taking in the situation at »nce, -he .made straight for the tree and seizing the prisoner by the hind leg in his huge mandibles, gave such a tug at it that the next instant bird -and monkey came headlong clown; but wb.il the "former let go his hold and flew up, the latter fell with a sounding thump on the road and there lay. A Chinaman, on monkey-stew intent, laid hold of him; but the animal recovering himself, made his teeth meet in his captor's leg, who thereupon added his howls to the genei - al uproar. The male bird sat guard outside the nest for about an hour, when the monkeys, having , exhausted their stock of abuse, gradually dispersed and the original cause of the riot "went' to pot" tha same evenins.—N.
