SOCIETY ON JUG RIDGE
Tha Daatanlljr Fraud Forpatratad by the
Htorar'i Hill Hat.
ISTThe corn-husklnj at Rube Rny
dor's place Saturday evening was a so
cial event Ion? looked forward to, and
drnw togethor a large number of our
best young people. It was the initial
event of this kind this season, and was
held In the new barn on tbe back place.
Some of the Stover's Mill set were there,
and only for their presence among the
matured ladles and gentlemon of the
Ridge'every thing would have passed oft
with the utmost harmony. It is a pleas
ure to record that four of these wretches
were laid out horn de combat very early
in the evening, and were takon home oa
a stone sled hy friends who wore them
selves In need of thn mlnlstorlng kind
ness of frlonds with stone sled and a
yoke of oxen.
BTH was observed early in tbe busk-
ing that the Stovers Mill boys were
fretting ail the rod ears aud conseauont-
ly was kissing our girls right and left,
while the Ridge boys were simply left.
If you will pardon a wittloism. The
Stover's Mill crowd had been around the
olrcult half a dozen times each, while
the Ridge boys were left to suck our
thumbs, as it were. We of Jug Ridge
husked like fury In order to find a red
ear and enjoy tho delicious osoulatory
privileges whloh came with it, but
were doomed to disappointment. We rip
ped the husks oft like mad men, and were
finding nothing for our pains, when at
the same time tbe Mill boys were kept
busy kissing our charming girls. The
adverse luck of the Ridge boys was ex
citing much cbargln, whon lo and be
hold it was discovered by a lucky cbance
that the Stover's Mill crowd ot hood
lums were perpetrating a most dastardly
fraud and outrage upon us a deep laid
and diabolical piece of business, vis:
tiT It was found that they had pre
pared and brought with them a can of
red dye made, we think, of pokehcrry
juice, and this they had hung with dev
ilish Ingenuity under one of the chairs
occuplod by tbom. Tlfo plan of opera
tion was for some, one of the Stover's
Mill boys to occupy this chair, and when
he got ready an ear ot corn would bo
surreptitiously immersed In this dye.
In a moment It would be dry, and then.
with a dexterity bom of the devil, it
would bo flashed upou the husking party
as a bona fide red ear fresh from the
husk. This would not be gainsaid and
the fraudulent tinder, with a wild swoop,
would make the grand rounds of our
girls, kissing every one he could grab,
and none escaped. Then In the exaite
ment attendant upon the wholesale kiss
ing some other one of the Stover's Mill
party would get this chair with the dye
under it and the same outrage would be
repeated. Is it any wonder these das
tards were getting all the red ears? Our
blood bolls with righteous indignation
whon we think of this nefarious scheme
Mill .ikv.umw'B . iRaanftLiajir.
tSTNeod we say that a riot followed
this discovery? Nay, we wot not. We
of tho Ridge are not made of the stuff
that tamely submits to such unseemly
conduct. It was the lynx eye of Perse
vere Benson who detected Zebnlon Boyd
dipping a yellow ear into tho red dye
under his chair, and In less time than it
takes to toll it, he "cllmbud.his form,"
In common parlance, and ar'-wy pretty
rough and tumble-followed. We think
Persevere lacked fliaaretlon in tackling
Zebulon, as the latter' is known to be.
one or the most wiry TJt tne stover s
ill crowd. Persevere was no match
or him, we regret to say, nd Zebulon,
scattered the corn-heap with Iris gallant
form in a Martllng manner. With rare
presence ot mind under distressing cir
cumstances Persevere managed to point
to the can of pokeberry julco under the
chair and the mystery of the sudlen at
tack was made clear. An ear of corn
was even found in the oan, Zeb not hav
ing had time to remove it.
Hf"I wdsh I eould convey to my many
readers an adequato picture of the scene
which followed this discovery. But
here is where the puny pen falls from
the nerveless grasp. With a yoll of
rage, the Ridge boys sprang at the
throats of the. dastardly Mill crowd and
literally flayed them alive, albeit my
duty as a journalist compels me to say
that the Mill boys were there or there
abouts all the time. By a regretable
coincidence, after tho two contending
parties had each closed in with a foe
man, there was no man loft foryourcor-
respondent to assail. Although I was
wrought up to a pitch of wild frenzy
and eager for the fray I had to ascend
the hay-loft, whither the ladles had fled,
to see that no 111 befell them. The con
flict that raged below was something
not often seen since the knlgbts of old
mopped the ensanguined with all that
was mortal of each other.
P" We are requested to announce that
the spoiling bee at the red school-house
next Tuesday evening, at which a num
ber of the Ridge boys were expected to
