Blackfoot News (Newspaper) - January 18, 1896, Blackfoot, Idaho of the t a woo res. How Moonlight of of Falls upon in a Limpid and seem to or mothers tim and diced my chum and we All sat Down. Dick was a most artistic liar Ami 1 was something in that line myself but i must say that it taxed the full extent of our Powers to maintain a Calm Demeanour As we proceeded to convince our innocent victims that the least before them was prepared for their Especial Benefit and that the preparation thereof had been a labor of True Delight. Of Bensons plan of Campaign 1 Hannot the faintest idea. The Only thing i that suggested itself to me was delay j title of defense a for it was Plain that the longer the doubtless had Lineal was postponed the less the dam age done when the time came for their departure. But the poor creatures looked so a thirsty after their travels that 1 really Felt pity for them. A Glass or two of wine from the decanter would not be soft the each Crest our loved mountains Sheen silvered Gold they lie dream take tired children on tin Hrast. The kingly Pines uplift their Emerald crowns the Berei leaves Rustle in the fitful g de staying branches Cross each Moonlit Dale while z Muse a foxes shrill bark son j ids within the Woods and slowly Dies away. A this is night and such a night As this thrilled by the rapture of the Moons missed anyway. Quot my dear aunt a 1 soft kiss j ventured without looking at Dick a let it almost seems As glorious As Day. Me give you a Glass of Claret. Trav a our mountains dream the moonlights 1 Eling is such dry work that you really Mellow Bliss j must be fades out and morning streaks the sky j they said nothing but there was a with faint voices they both declined and our precious Bird remained still a thing of Beauty and a Joy for our coining guests. Lest our Stock of unappetizing stones should run Short or our victims should somehow conquer their qualms Dick very calmly arose and removed the piece Cle resistance from the table. But so tickled were we at our Success that we presently found ourselves off our guard. It was time to broach the pies and we had not ready a Par Sciss ored smiles. Benson time to think i to re with Gray. Granite monthly. R How we saved our dinner. A / it was really too bad and the More i think it Over the More ashamed i feel for my share in the a blushing transaction. The Way it happened was this you Sec Dick Benson and i were medical students. We were moreover the closest of chums and we lodged together in the same room. One evening at about 6 o clock we stood in a Corner of our apartment know look of pleasant expectancy in their eyes which read assent. The decanter stood on a Side table and beside it was a confused mass of bottles of All shapes and sizes containing pickled lizards frogs and such things. There was also a collection of Bones and other medical appurtenances. As i stepped up to this table Dick remarked Quot be careful Arthur not to confound the Claret with that red stuff i brought Home this afternoon. You know Harding a dog died of hydrophobia last night and t got a bottle of his blood to then coming up to where 1 stood ostensibly to help me to distinguish a one from the other he whispered a sorry old Man it Hurt i but we must begin at the be am surveyed with undisguised Satis ginning or else we shall have a frag faction the scene before us. A Large mental Turkey on our j Ai it Here a n pretty Viesa read Bluit Quot table occupied the Center of the room / a nah yes Quot he said aloud this is the. Xuy one All right allow me a a i done to care for any wine thank you a said my poor aunt Helen although really she looked ready to faint from thirst. A not any for me either thank you a said her sister a i rarely take of do take something a urged. Well sit Down to something More Benson was an excellent Story Teller and the next ten minutes he employed in relating a number of Choice Hospital anecdotes and experiences Calcut and upon it was the prettiest Sot out we had looked upon for Many a Day. Rinere was in the first place a magnificent cold roast Turkey flanked with glasses of celery and the like there were dishes of luscious fruit several Juicy peach pies a couple of delicious quivering Blanc manges. And towering Over All a grand Center piece of Beautiful Flowers. The fact is we were giving a Little cold spread to a few friends of ours whether male female or mixed it is not necessary to Tell. There was a full hour to spare before our guests would arrive and. My Aux Oil but unwelcome guests. The matter up he would have evolved some tale As destructive it it of a fruit appetite As of a flesh one. However it did t much matter As there was a bake shop near by. And we could very easily replace that portion of our repast both my aunts took a piece of pie and we two conspirators also for appearance Sake. As we ate and chatted Dick dropped out of the conversation and fell to musing. It was Plain to my mind that he was figuring out How to save those Beautiful Ida tic manges. There Wasny to another of their Genus within five Miles and so they must be saved at any Cost. For my part i Hadnot the ghost of an idea How it was to be done bul 1 trusted in Dick and did my besi to entertain our guests alone so As to give him full Opportunity for thought. At last their pie was finished and the fateful moment arrived. Glancing at Dick i observed with Joy that a gleam of satisfaction held Possession of his optic. 1 Felt that we were saved. A ooh i say said he a did you happen to read that article in the medical journal about a new and approved stiffening for jellies and such dainties. You know isinglass and those things commonly in use often impart a Strong flavor and so while trying to remedy this defect a Hospital doctor hit upon quite a Lucky a and what did he use a 1 asked wondering what was coming next. �?onails1 replied Dick Jolon locally. A nails a echoed both my aunts in chorus a what hard Iron nails a a ooh. No a said he. With a polite smile a you misunderstand me 1 mean Finger i really thought my aunts would have fainted on the spot and i myself could not help giving an involuntary Start. A disgusting a murmured aunt Helen in an almost inaudible voice. A Sayell. Yes a replied Dick nothing abashed Quot Finger fails Are rather dirty perhaps but i should think they would make a very Superior stiffening who bites his and if you ask any Oik nails he will Tell you they taste of their own so you have a decided pull Over everybody knows of course contain a Large amount of have no see they isinglass. That they gelatine just like a horse s Hoof you which they make glue great Caesar 1 thought 1 know would la Ted to increase the effect already everything being in readiness we sat produced. One yarn i remember was Down to rest a while and to sum up a that of a fellow student who was one How much our Little affair would tax Flay making an interesting dissection us financially. Fumbling in my inside i under the Arm of a dead body. He had pocket for an envelope to figure upon got his face close to the subject study drop from my chair and As for our in i pulled out an unopened letter which ing it with intense interest when Sud fortunate victims. They looked As if i had hurriedly thrust there the Day Denly the Corpse s Arm relaxed and they were going to be sick. Clasped the terrified student in its fearful embrace. A just imagine a Dick went on mercilessly a just imagine my poor Friend before and entirely forgotten. A Good heavens Dick a i exclaimed As 1 read it and threw it across to him. A a Here a a pretty mess read the epistle ran As follows my dear Arthur my sister and i will be passing through Boston late tomorrow afternoon on our Way Home. We shall have an hour or so to spare in changing trains and if nothing prevents we shall drop in upon you at your room. Expect us then shortly after 6. Your affectionate aunt a Helen. A a great guns Arthur a said Dick Quot Why the Dickens can to you read your correspondence when you receive it if you had we might have arranged things differently. Where Are your esteemed relatives bound a a Home to a and the train leaves a a at 7 05, i Well the depot is fifteen minutes ride from Hete so we shall get rid of them before our guests arrive said Benson. Quot hang it Man i know that but this spread out. That a what in a thinking about. You know 1 done to want our Lille orgy to be known at a Gad i did no to think of that. Hold t have it you say you got that letter yesterday. Then of course you expected them and prepared this Little dinner As a Surprise see a a but heavens and Earth what about our guests we can task them to sit Down to a Turkey that has undergone he a amputation to Mere fragments of Blanc Mange and to peach pies that have lost ninety degrees of their a look Here old Man a said Dick with exasperating coolness a a you la spoil your Collar if you re not careful. Done to get excited. You just leave the matter with a but what a a silence now in be got an idea and i want to work it out. You must arrange to have me present during your whole interview that a Dick went into a Brown study and i relapsed into Moody silence. I fear i almost hoped something had happened to that train for i see for the life of me. How the matter was to be brought to a satisfactory conclusion. It had taken us a full hour to decorate that table to our satisfaction and to undress it and hide the viands was of course out of the question. Moreover As ill Luck would have it there was no spare room in the House to which we might temporarily have moved our quarters. Presently the door Bell rang and a minute later my buxom but unwell ome relatives bounced into the room. They looked As hungry of bears. After the usual salutations i Intro a to going an awkward silence now followed. Presently my aunts remembered that they ought to do a Little shopping lie fore train time and so off they went mentally resolving. I la be bound that if they Ever dined with medical students again they would be careful to Wear blinders and plug their ears tightly with Cotton Wool. Of course our Little dinner proved a great Success for Dicks inimitable relation of the Story it was really too Good to keep Pul everybody in the Best of spirits and the merriment did not Flag till the a wee Smay hours Anent the they both declined mid our precious Bird Wax saved. With his face pressed close against that cold and Clammy cadaver. But now let us to the with a shudder my aunts arose and moved toward the table. My heart mis gave me. If they could stand that last Story there was surely no Hope of saving our Turkey. Dicks Keener Eye saw that they were weakening however and so he prepared to pile on the agony. We had hardly taken our seats when lie began again a by the Way Arthur were you in the Hall this morning when that egyptian Mummy was unrolled the smell fish storm. In Early times records of the occurrence of showers of fish Corn etc., were regarded As alarming portents. Then came the time when they were regarded As fictitious like the of ican lakes Albert and Victoria Nyanza which were erased from the maps for nearly 100 years to be restored in the present Century. So with the fishes we know that the records of their falling Are True and we know where they come from. A whirlwind sucks up the water of a Stream or Pond the water and the fishes Are carried aloft like the Hay out of a Dick Tell a How we saved our Din was simply awful. It could t have been properly cured or something. One fellow actually fainted from the horrible a no i Wasny to there a 1 replied As i jabbed the Fork into the Bird before me preparatory to carving. A now. Aunt Helen let me give you a Nice leg. I remembered you like your game Well kept so i got this especially. For my part 1 like them when they Are ready to drop i held aloft the carving knife As 1 spoke but it fell harmless. As far As roast Turkey was concerned my poor aunts were completely knocked out.
