If the woman next door I ai'@ligO-'$ had been a nice, loving woman she would have Invited the widow over to make further acquaintance, but she was a different person. She said that widows had too much rope as it was and that Mrs. Hunnewell was always out of tea and coffee when a neighbor wanted to borrow. And the professor wasn't to be caught sight of so often either. However, when Providence gets its machinery once started there are gen- erally results• One night when the wind didn't moan and the shingles didn't rattle, but when it was moon- light and cahu instead, the widow was awakened from her sleep by a bad dream. She thought herself surround- ed by potato bugs and fighting for her life. The dream made such an im- pression that she got out of bed and looked out of the window. There was the explanation before her eyes. The professor had climbed the fence and was in her yard and down on hands and knees in the grass. He had on so few clothes that it was easy to guess he had risen .from his bed to look for crickets. Not a word did the widow say. She Just got Into bed and did some thinking. That thinking: resulted In her sending for the village constable next day and saying to him: "Mr. Richards, if a widow living all alone should have reason to believe that her house was about to be broken into, what should she do?" .You mean if she saw a man dodg- Ing around in the yard?" "Yes." "Well. she might scream." "Yes." "'Or she might throw something out of the window at him." "Yes." "Or she might take her life and her broomstick in hand and rush out and crack his skull." "'I see." "'But if I was that woman I'd bor- row a shotgun, load It with salt and fire on him from a window." "And what would the salt do?" "'Keep him In bed for about a week. If there is anybody spooking around your house o' nights l've got the gun and the salt, and you can protect your- self. The law will be on your side. Aim at his legs and let 'er go." The widow took a couple of hours to think it over and then sent for the gun. She was taught how to fire IL and when the sun went down that evening sbe felt that vents were go- ing to happen before morning.

She saw him grab with this hand and the other and heard him chuckle. Then she pointed the gun out of the window and shut her eyes and fired. There was a whoop and a yell. and she rattled downstairs to find the professor lying on the grass. He had been salted. levermore would he be fresh again. Nevermore would he want any salt on his potatoes. Of course the plan was to rush him i into the house, call a doctor and keep him around for a week as an invalid. There would be romance in the salt and gratitude for the soups prepared for him. and those thiuga might lead on and on. They didn't, however. The professor cussed: be,swore: he wrig- gled: he said that any woman who would shoot a barrel of salt into an Innocent man ought to be hanged, and as he made his way to the fence he called back: "'And my wife is coming here In the morning to stay for two weeks.
