An Atchlaon man did It. Ho had an
Uncle .Dud, who was worthless through
and through. Doforo the Atchlaon man
was born Undo Dud began being
worthless. He went to church n great
deal, and at church becamo Infatuated
with a young girl. One of the first
kin stories the Atchlaon man heard
waa bow hla father bad given Uncle
Dud money to loavo the country to es
cape from marrying the girl. When
the Atchlaon man was a boy Uncle Dud
lived on a routed farm near by, and
the Atchison man recalls that every
ytar Uncle Dud's wife would appear at
hla father's home, and whllo there a
baby would be added to tho family of
Uucle Dud. It thero was a cyclone

Uncle Dud was always one ot the suf

Dud was wrecked. It bis crops were
not ruined by drought they failed be
cause of too much rain, If there was
distemper among horses, black leg
among cattle, or cholera among bogs,
Undo Dud always lost his. His wife
was sickly, and his children were al
ways down with some contagious dls-
easo. Undo Dud was great at saying
through all theae troublea: 'The
Lord's will be dope," but the Atchison
man recalls that it was always tho kin
who had to pay for the "Lord's will,"
It never Inconvenienced Uncle Dud.
As the Atchison man grew up he had
one ambition In life, to give Uncle
Dud both barrels. A few years ago
the Atchison man recolved a letter
from Uncle Dud. There had been a
horrible disaster where Uncle Dud
lived, and he had written to say he
had lost all. His health was wrecked
by tho horror ot what he had been
through, and he was coming to his rel
atives with some ot his grandchildren,
until ho recovered his strength. "I
have a great story to tell you," he
wiote. "This disaster Is something
which shows the might of the Lord's
fury, and now that It Is all over, I
feel that I want to tell you the majes
ty of seeing with the human eye tho
awful anger of the Lord."
The Atchison man knew his tlmo
had come. No one knows what he
wrote Uncle Dud, but ho did what the
Lord's anger tailed to do: He shot
Uncle Dud to pieces. He gave him
both barrels, and the contents e a
