Tony' Wanted Adventure 0 * « * * * He Knew How fo Gef If He Tripped By Einar Skoal Uncle Guy set his Model 94 repeating rifle behind the kitchen door, placed the small can of lubricating oil on the shelf beside the chime clock and reached for the magazine. The recent issue was open to a picture showing a man paddling a kayak—upside c^own! "Hmm," murmured Uncle Guy, "some folks will do anything for a thrill, like the traveling preacher who held a rattlesnake until it bit his hand, and then said: 'Shucks'. I meant for it to nip me on the nose,' " Such a Crazy Guyl Uncle reached behind the kitchen range and -brought out a switch of sassafras wood. With his pocket knife he sliced off a slip of bark. He chewed the bark awhile and then said: "We had a feller out here in the mountains once who was as crazy as a game of blind man's buff. His name was Tewbit' —first name Horace. We tailed him Tony' for short. Always liked to be doing something new . . . Couldn't settle down for long without a cow J bit him, or somebody stepped on his foot., , "He was always looking for a new job", because, he was always tired of the one he had. Thought a job had to be fun, or exciting. I let him help me call wUd bees once, and he got stung on the nose. . . . Tried to pet'em. "Hfis "was the kind of fellow, if hev >>i^ieard somebody went over finaitara Falls in a barrel, HE w^d try it in a peach baskwpr- provided he didn't SEEpft falls first."

You could hear HIM louder than the whistle! "Su7.anna, Don't You Cry!" "He went out west later, wc heard. Got a job with a medicine show—one of those outfits with a horse at the front end of a closed wagon, and n tail-gate stage at the other end. The outfit would stop at a county fair, or a courthouse square, and they'd give a show, followed by the spiel. "Pony used to drive while the medicine man was mixing up a hatch of elixir inside the wagon. At the stops. Pony would cork his face, put on a red bow tic and a straw sailor hat, and tune up the banjo. Then he would lower the tailgate, pump the pressure lamp and bang on a bass drum. Climax and Conflagration "On Pony's last night with the show, he was playing the banjo while dancing a jig. He tripped and fell into the drum. He knocked the lamp loose, and it set fire to the magon. "There was a plenty big fuss then! The fire engine came rocking down the street, glang glang! The horses' shoes were striking fire, and dogs were barking! The police wagon came, too, with a couple of big Barneys hanging onto the back end of it, "The street light on the corner went dark, just about the time the firemen arrived. The blaze was out in a jiffy, and then people began milling around. "The nrediclne man was running down a back street where there was only one light to a block. He was running for all he was worth, but he was running second. Pony was out In front and gaining." took ^% rope arid a stick like these A^lplne chaps. "He slipped on a wet spot; and went whizzing down head first. The rope snarled around his ankle, and the other end of it snagged on an overhanging rock. There he swung, upside down. "Was HIS face red! "The others laughed for 10 minutes. "He got a job with a tree trimmer. It was a pretty easy job, but he got careless while he was whittling sprouts off an elm tree, and he slipped down into a narrow fork . . . Stuck tighter than glue. Bases for Leo "His boss took a look at him squirn^itO^ there. He said; 'Well you can't get hurt much NOW, so I'd better leave you there.' He did, too, He just up and walke4cJ^ay. "Lat^r on, a traveling circus came tJirough, and Pony got a job w}|B ''em. He was supposed to take care of the animals- clean their cages, and feed 'em, and nvilitiB 'em happy, "He gQt cute with one of the tired ol^Uoos. He flipped an olive sU?>lie and tried to hit the lion on'oie nose. But the lion must have fefh it coming, because kj^/l^n^ his tail and 8lamme(dLA4wo*)»se hit down Pony's W^t:.
