Reuben Pettibone And Squire
A REMARKABLE TRADE
Reuben Was Honest And Unsuspect-
; ing But When It Came Down To
Dickering In Hoss Skin He Was
"My remarkable father Reuben
Pettibone" said the man from over
Slnnemahoning way "was as honest as
the day and as unsuspecting as a child
but it Is a matter of record that if
ever two men bad a horse trade alone1
theSlnnemahoneone of the men bain?
my remarkable father and it happened
that one of the horses in tbe trade
turned out to be wind-broken or blind
in an eve. or a oribber or something
of that sort that horse wouldn't be the
one that Reuben Pettibone led home
after the deal eays the New York
" 'Praxiteles.' mv remarkable father
used to say to me 'be honest but mix
perspicacity with your honesty and
have all tbe points of a horse down
'Reiner thus marked fc his honesty
his disingenuousness and hih perspicac-
ity Reuben Pettibone wa built to
resent the schemes 01 tns designing
and the tricky. In other words
Reuben Pettibone would not be put up-
-"The steak is cold again. I shall have to scold a little."
'She "Then I'll make it hot for
cn. Not he! If any one took advantage
of bis unsuspecting and confiding nat
ure he would grieve deeply to thin k
that they could have the heart to do
such a thing but at the
same time he would mix a little
more perspicacity with his
honesty and bide bis time. It was
thus he grieved and bided in tbe case
of old Squire Ratner. Ah Reuben
Pettibone's remftfkableness came out
strong in tbe ease of old bquire
"If the record is right squire
Pintner was the most uncertain man to
deal with thbt ever did business in
early days in the Sinneroahoning
bailiwick. He bad a sawmill and he
kept a store and be hired a good many
men but he had a way of keeping
books and turning this that and the
other to account till it seemed the
more logs a man hauled into the mill
and sold -to the squire the bigger bis
store bill was and the longer a chop-
per worked for .the squire the lees he
bad ooming when they settled up.
Look at Jim Hoover. He hired out
one winter to chop for the squire until
spring for $15 a month and his board.
Jim worked all winter as faithful as
could be and never drew a cent of
money oa account. Id the spring he
asked for settlement. The squire got
down his books and went to going
over 'em and figuring. Jim he couldn't
understand why there should be so
much figuring as all the charge
gainst him at the store was for three
pounds of tobacco. But the squire
figured and figured and at last got the
account all ciphered out.
" 'Ah-h-h' said be as if he was all
but tired out getting the thingstraigbt.
'Well James' he said 'there's just
three shlllin' and a pair of overalls due
"If a tree bai tumbled on Jim he
couldn't have been knocked any dum-
ber. Before he could find his tongue
or get his senses to working tbe
squire had counted out tbe three shil-
lings to him and ordered his clerk to
wrap up a pair of overalls for Jim and
that's all Jim ever got for his winter's
work. So you see that old Squire
Pintner was quite a rugged and yet
smooth citizen and he rather boasted
" Wben any fellow ever gets the
best o' me in a bargain' the old squire
used to say according to Reuben Pet-
tibone 'I'll trade him my mill for a
mess o' suckers!'
"Now considering Reuben Petti-
bone's remarkableness you would na-
turally suppose that it would have
behooved him to be careful how he
came in contact with old Squire Vint-
ner but when be also considered his un-
suspecting; nature bia disregard of
precaution in that respect may be
satisfactorily explained. The squire
had a black mare that Reuben Petti-
bone wanted the worst way but she
was worth $300 if she was worth a cent
and my remarkable father wasn't paying-
8300 for horses. One day he was
driving: by the squire's. The squire
was coming out of the barnyard. Reu-
ben Pettibone stopped.
" 'Squire' said he 'I banter you
to take a hundred dollars cash for that
black mare of yours' but he did't
have the least idea in the world that the
equire would take him up.
" 'Cash on the spot?' said the squire.
" 'Yes' said Reuben.
" 'Reuben' said the saulre 'I'll
be darned if I'll take a banter! You
can have the mare!'
Reuben Pettibone unsuspecting;
child-like that he was was tickled all
but to fits. He counted out . the hun-
' 'The mare' said the equire 'is
down in the brush pastur' lot. Shall I
send and fetch her up?'
" 'No' said Reuben 'I'll get her
myself and take her through to the
back road. '
"When be went down to the brush
pasture after the mare Reuben Petti-
bone felt hurt. Tbe mare was there
but she was dead and not only dead
but -the squire had even drawn off her
shoes. Keuben was grieved. His
record in horse exchange business wai
shattered. But he went home and
said nothing; and put the matter be-
hind him so completely that in less
than a week he went down to the
quire's and made an agreement with
the squire to sell him a number of pine
logs a couple of thousand shingles and
two cords of pine stove wood cut short
the terms being cash oo delivery.
Tbe squire didn't 'say a word about
the black mare nor let on that he ever
knew anything about any black mare
and my remarkable father was just as
oblivious to th9 transaction as the
squire was. A few days later Reuben
Pettiboce be Ban to deliver the pine
logs. He hauled in 16 of 'em in the
course of two weeks. They were of
different lengths but all of such tre-
mendous girth that tbe old equire had
tn shell out amazing for each log they
measured up so long.
' 'Praxiteles' myrercarkable father
used to say. while his eyes twinkled. 'I
averaged $10 apiece for them logs
making $60 net.'
"After he got through delivering
the logs Reuben hauled in the 2000
shingles and got $10 for 'em. Then be
delivered the two cords of pine stove
wood cut short and got $3 for that.
Daring all this time the relations be-
tween the old Squire and my remarka-
ble father vere of the pleaeantest
kind. Not a word had been said about
the black mare. Then one day Reuben.
Pettibonebappenedtobe at tbe squire's
store. The equire was there aod hav-
ing just settled up with some choppers
he was feeling as chipper as a catbird.
By and by be began to grin at Reuben
"Reuben I hain't seen you drivin'
that black mare any that you bought
o' me. - You paid me a pretty good
price for her to keep her shut up so
"'Oh said my remarkable father.
I don't know as I paid you any better
price for the mare than you paid me
for tbat pine stuff I sold you.'
' 'Ho ho!' said the old equire grin-
ning more and more. 'I'll get $25 out
o' them sixteen logs and $15 for the
shingles and the stove wood is worth
$6 a cord any day makln' sometnin'
lite $84 I'll clear on tbat little pine
"Reuben Pettibone in his childlike
way loooked up at the squire and
" 'That was the biggest pine tree I
ever ohopped down' said he. 'I got it
just beyond the bigjelm lot on the
east edge o' Panther Hollow.
"What's that?" said tbe old Squire
with bis grin all gone. "Why that's
on m. That's my land you cut that
pine on. Tbat was my tree!'
" 'Is that so' said my remarkable
father looking more suspecting and
.childlike than ever. 'You don't tell
me. I never eaw nicer logs than it cut
up into. Sixteen pine logs out o' ona
tree beats the average a little
" 'Sixteen out o' one tree?' gasped
" 'Yes' replied Reuben. 'The first
one I sold you. when I booked on to it
again after unloading it on your log
pile to haul It baolt borne I found was
so worn on one end from dragging it
over the rough ground that I sawed off
a foot or so from tbe 6nd so that when
I sold it to yon the next day it wasn't
a i long a3 it was the day before. And
by the time I bad hauled tbat log back
home and to your mill again sixteen
times it was just about the right length
to split up into tbat 2000 shingles and
it turned 'em out easy. Tbe butt ends '
o' that log that I kept sawing off made
more than two cords o' stove wood.
Squire but two cords were all your
bill called for and I kept tbe half oord
that was over; but I'll sell It to you if
you want it.'
"They tell me that .the old squire
turned green while Reuben Pettibone
was going Offer tbat little deal and
that bis jaw bung down so he couldn't
get it up to say a word.
" 'Yes' said Keuben 'one hundred
dol'ars is a big priC9 to pay for a dead
horse but It ain't any bigger price
than $168 for one pine log is and that
log your own property at that. I'm
just about $68 ahead on that horse
deal l take it Squire!'
"Old Squire Pintner died that eame
year and everybody declared up and
down that itijvas tht transaction in
pine logs shingles and stove wood tbat
carried him off. My remarkable fa-
ther up to bis dying day used to say
that he was afraid he' might have
mixed a lee-e-etle more perspicacity
with his honesty than the prescription
called for in this deal with the Squire
but it didn't seem to cast muoh of a
cloud over his declining years re-
