''I settled, out West here after the Ihjins
aad ail been druv off, and so me and my
wife hadn't nothing to fear from them ; but
;here was other critters about in these h re
liggings nigh as bud, as I'm a gwine to tell
. ."You must know that after I'd got thing
ixed up to suit me, I tuk to raising hosses,
laving a nateral incline for that ere animal.
I've knowed a hoss' eyer-sence 1 was old
jnough to know any thing. Hobody couldo'r
fool me in a boss. After two orthree years
igot things a jogging in the right kind of

"But then come my fust trouble. "An old
womanj - called the vVidder Groat, living
ibout two miles off, come over to my house
mo day to borrow a peck of Iniln meal. My
Kite she let her have it, and the old witch
ihe went off good-nater'd enough. A week
went by, and she didn't fetch it back, but
some agin for anotyssr peck, .telling some
ind of a story about being disapp'inted and
on. Howsomover, my wile she didn't be
ieve her, and wouldn't let her have no
core till she paid up, and this time she went
iway mad, and said that rich people that
wouldn't help poor folks wouldn't git along
lone too well, and that we might look oui
jo see the .Lord pay us off for our meanness
xl a way we'd feel it. If she'd a said Satan
jistead of the Lord I reckon she'd a come
nearer the mark.
"Well, about a week after that I went out
to see after my hosses and found five of 'em

he couldn't tell -what ailed 'em, no more'n

lot was tuk I thought it high time to try
so'thiug else; and, backing my saddle-hoss,
rid ttiirty miles to see a woman that told
fortius and sich. She-was a big, fat thing,
with a. purty sharp eye, and. knowed a

"I did-that jest to try her, like.

cake me some little time to git at ail the
particulars, and every minute is so precious
to the success of what you're after.' '
'"It is,' said I; and 1 went on to tell her
all about the hosses.
" They're bewitched !' she said, right off,
without stopping to think a minute.
" 'That's itr I cried. 'I knowed it.'
" 'There's an old woman in the scrape !'
she said. " .

"'Let me see L' . she sort o'-mused; 'her

and then make marks for the eyes, nose and

that'll do jest as well.' -

"Well, sir, I come home ag'inand set to
work on the new spell. I cut and pounded
up two silver spoons and some pieces ol
money into bullets and went out into the
woods with my gun, drawed the old witch
on a stump, and let her have one on 'cm
right through her head. The next day I
went over to see what had come on't and
found old Mother Groat stiff and dead in
her bed. Yes, sir, the bullet had done for
her, and I s'pect Satan had got her soul, ac
cording to his barg'in with her."
A suggestion that she might have died of
starvation and disease was treated by the
superstitious Uncle -Billy with scorn and
contempt It was astonishing how ignorant
people were on the subject of witches. She
was not the only one who had been put out
of the world in that way; he had heard of
many others,' and had some other expe
riences himself. '- ',
"But what about the horses!"

after the old witch died," he said, "and then
the rest of 'em got along right nice."
