THE CAKM1 CHUMS.
The Curmi Chums was flic Etitne they
wi'ut by till along the river. Most other
roustabouts had each a name of his own ;
so had the Carmi Chums, for that mat
ter, but the men themselves were never
mentioned individually always collect
ively. Ko steamboat Captain who
wanted Ally a single man ever attempted
to hire half of the Carmi Chums at a
time as easy would it have been to
have hired half of the Siamese Twins.
No steamboat .mate wbokccw them ever
attempted to "tell off" the Chums into
different watches, and any mate who,
not knowing them, committed this blun
der, and adhered to it after explanation
was made, was sure .to be two men short
immediately after leaving the steamer's
next landing. Theic seemed no possible
way of separating them ; they never lull
out with each other in the natural course
of cveuts; they never fought when
drunk, as other friendly roustabouts
sometimes did, for the Carmi Chums
never got drunk; there never sprang up
any coolness between them because of
love for the same lady, fur they did sot
seem to care at all x for female society,
unless they happened to meet somcold
lady whom one might love- as a mother
rather than as a sweetheart. Even pro
lesuional busybodies, from whose pres
ence roustabouts arc not freer than
church members, were unable to pro
voke the Carmi Chums even to suspicion,
and those of them who attempted it too
persistently were likely to have a diffi
culty with the slighter ot the Chums.
This man, who was called Black, because
of the color of his hair, was apparently
forty years of age, of very ordinary ap
peerance, except when an occasional
furtive, frightened look came into his
face and attracted attention. His com
panion called Red, because his hair was
of the hue of carrots, and because it
was occasionally necessary to distinguish
him from his friend, seemed of about
the same age and degree of ordinariness
as Black, but was rather stouter, more
' cheery, and, to us the favorite rousta
bout simile, held his head closer to the
current. He scemetl, when Black was
absent minded (as he generally was
while off duty), to be the leading spirit
. of the couple, and to be tenderly alive
to all of his partner's needs; but ob
serving roustabouts noticed that when
freight was being moved, or wood taken
on board, Black wps always where he
could keep nu eye on his chum, and
" when he could demand' instant fepar-s
tion from any wretch who trod upon
Red's toes, or who with a shoulder load
of wocd grazed Red's head, or touched
Red witliboi or, barrel.
LJScxt fo Beighborly wonder as to the
existence of the friendship between the
- Cbums, roustabouts with whom the
couple sailed concerned themselves most
with the cause lf the bond between
them. Their seaiches after first causes

At length they became known, in their;
collective capacity, as one of the insti
tutions of the river. Captains knew

The spring of 1869 found the Chums
in the crew of the Thnnett, "the peer
less floatiDgalace of the Mississippi,"
as she was called fljj "thoae newspapers
whose refortstt liad ithe treedom of the
Bennett's bar; and the same season saw
the Bennett staggering down the Mis
sissippi with so heavy a load of sacked
corn, that the gunwales amidships were
fairly under water. The river was very
low, so the Bennett kept carefully in the
channel, but the channel of the great
muddy ditch which drains half the
Union is as fickle as disappointed lovers
declare women to be, and it has no
more respect lor great steamer loads
of corn than Goliah had for David. A
little Ohio River boat, bound upwards,
had reported the sudden disappearance
of a wood yard a little way above Mil
liken's Bead; where the channel hugged
the shore, and with the wood yard there
had disappeared tin enormous sycamore
tree, which had for years served as a'
tying post for steamers. As live syca
mores are about ai disinclined to float
as bars ot lead are, the Captain and
pilot ot the Bennett were somewhat
concerned- for the sake of the corn
to know the exact location of the tree.
Half a mile from the spot it became
evident, even to the passengers clustered
forward on the cabin deck, that the
sycamore had remained quite near its
old home, for a long, rough ripple was
seen directly across the line of the chan
nel. Then arose the question as to how
much water was on top of the tree, and
whether any bar had time to accumu
late. The steamer was stopped, the en
gines were reversed and worked by
hand to keep the Bennett from drifting
down stream, a boat was lowered and
manned, the Chums firming part of her
crew, and the Second Officer went down
to take soundings, while the passengers,
to whom even so small a cause for ex
citement was a god -send, crowded the
rail and stared.
The boat shot rapidly down thestruun,.
headed for the shore end of the ripple.
She seemed almost into the boiling mud
in front of her when the passengers on
the steamer heard the Mate in the boat
The motion of the oars changed in an
instant, but a little too late, for, a heavy
root of the fallen giant, just covered by
the water, caught the little craft, and
caused itto carce'h so violently that
one man was thrown into the water. As
she righted, another man went in.
"Confound HP growled the Captain,
who was leaning out of the pilot house
window. "I hope they can swim. Still,
'taint as bad as it would be if we had
any more cargo to take aboard."
" ilJVs the'Chuma,'' remarked the pilot,
who had brought a glass to bear upon
"Thunder, exclaimed the Captain,
striking a bell. "Below there! Lower
away another boat lively!" Then,
turning to the passengers, he exclaimed:
"Nobody on the river 'd forgive tne if
I lost the Chums. 'Twould be as bad
as Barnum losing his giraffe."
The occupants of the first boat were
evidently of the Captain's own mind,
for they were eagerly peering orer'licr
sideband into the water.
Suddenly the pilot dropped his glass,
extemporized a trumpet with both hands,
and shouted :
"Forrard forrardl One of 'em's up!"
Then he put his mouth to the speaking
tube, and screamed to the engineer:
"Let her drop dowa a Uttlt, BiU!'1
The sounding party headed towards a
black speck, apparently a hundred
yards below them, and the great steam
er drifted" down stream. The speck
moved towards shore, and the boat,
rapidly shortening distance, seemed to
scrape the banks with her port oars.
"Safe enough now, I guess," exclaimed
Judge Turner, of one of the southern"
Illinois circuits. The Judge' had been
interrupted in telling a story when the
accident occurred, and was in a hurry to
"As 1 was saying," said he, "hehardl
looked like a professional horse thief.5
He was little and quiet, and had always
worked away steadily at his trade. I
believed him when he said 'twas his first
offense, and that he did it to raise
money to bury his child: and I was go
ing to give him an easy sentence, and
ask the Governor to pardon him. The
laws have to be executed, you know,
but there's no lawt against mercy being
practiced afterwards. Well, the Sheriff
was bringing him from jail to hear the
verdict and the sentence when a short
man, with red hair, knocked the Sheriff
down, andj; off galloped that precious
conple for theVabash. I--saw the en
tire" TO ,iH
"The deuce!" interrupted the pilot,
again dropping his glass.
The Judge glared angrily; the, passen
gara saw, across the shortened distance,
one of the Chums holding br a root to
the bank and trying to support the oilier,
whose shirt hung in rags, and who seemed
ftich 5aes liwti't asked the Cap
tain. "Give me the glass."-
Bat the pilot had left the house and
1W - . Se - j
taken the glass with him.
t Thcjjrndge continued:

diitinguibhcd passengers as regularly as
they showed Gen. Zach Taylor's plant

"cave," where a square mile of Louisiana
dropped into the river one night. Cap
tains rather cultivated them, in fact,
although it was a difficult bit of busi
ness, for roustabouts who wouldn't say
"thank you" tor a glas3 of French
brandy, or a genuine, old fashioned
plantation cigar," seemed destitute of
ordinary handles of which a steamboat
Captain could take hold. Lady pas
sengers took considerable notice of
them, and were more successful than
any one else at drawing them into con
versation. The linguistic accomplish
ments of the Chums were not numerous,
but it did one good to see Black lose his
scared, furtive look when a lady ad
dressed him, and to see the affectionate
deference with which he appealed to
Red, until that worthy was drawn into
the conversation. When Black euc
comin' back without 'em need whisky
to bring 'cm to, I suppose. Why didn't
I scad whisky down by the other boat?
There's an awful amount of time bemj
wasted here. What's the matter, Mr.
Bell?" f liouted the Captain, as the ioat
approached the steamer.
"Both dead," replied the officer.
"Dead? Now, ladleo and gentlemen,"
exclaimed the Captain, turning towards
the passengers, who were crowding for
ward just below him, "I want to know
If that ain't a streak of the meanest kind
of luck? Both the Chums gone! Why,
I won't be able to hold up my head in
New Orleans. How came It that just
those two fellows were knocked out?"
"Red tumbled out, and Black jumped
in after him," replied the officer, "Red
must have been caught in an eddy and
tangled in the old tree's top clothes torn
almost off head caved in. Black must
have burst a blood vessel -his face looked
like a copper pan when he reached shore,
and he just groaned and dropped.'
The Captain was torry so sorry that
he sent a waiter for brandy. But the
Captain was human, business was busi
ness, the rain was lulling, and n big log
was across the boat's bow, v lie .shouted :
'Hurry up and bury 'cm, then. You
ought to let tlfu second boat's crew gone
on wilh that, and you have gone back to
your soundings. Tliey tens the Claims,
toJbe sure, but now they're only dead
roustabouts. Below there! Pass out a
couple of shovels!"
"Perhaps some ladies would go down
with the boat, Captain and a preacher,
too, if there's one aboard," remarked the
mate, with an earnest but very mysteri
"Why, what in thunder docs the fel
low mean?" sDliloqnizcd the Captain,
audibly. "Women and a preacher for
dead roustabouts. What do you mean,
"Red's a woman," briefly responded
The passengers all started the Cap
tain brought his hands together with a
tremendous clap, and exclaimed:
"Murder will out! But who'd have
thought 1 was to be the man to find out
the secret of the Carmi Chums? Guess
I'll be the biggest man on the New Or
leans levee; after all. Yep, certainly of
course some ladies '11 go and a preach
er, too, if there's such a man aboard.
Hold up, though we'll all go. Take
your soundings, quick, and we'll drop
the steamer just below the point and tic
up. I wonder if there is a preacher
No one responded for a moment; then
the Judge spoke :
"Before I entered the law I was ihe
regularly settled pastor of a Presbyterian
church," said he. "I'm decidedly rusty
now, but a tittle time will enable mo to
prepare "myself properly. Excuse me,
ladies and gentlemen."
The sounding boat pulled away, and
the Judge retired to his stateroom. The
ladies, with very pale laces, gathered in
a group and whispered earnestly with
each other; then ensued visits to each
other's staterooms, and the final regath
ering of the ladies with two or three
bundles. The soundings were taken,
and as the steamer dropped down stream,
men were seen cutting a path down the
rather5 steep clay bank. The Captain
put his hands to his mouth and shouted :
"Dig only one grave make it wide
enough for two."
And all the passengers nodded assent
Tla.c had been short since the news
reached the steamer, but the Bennett's
carpenter, who was himself a married
man, had made a plain coffin by the time
the boat tied up, and another by the
time the grave was dug. The first was
put upon a lorg barrow, over which the
Captain had previously spread a table
cloth, and followed by the ladies, was
deposited beside the body ot Red. Half
an hoar later the men placed Black in
the other, coffin, removed both to the
side of the grave, and signaled the boat.
"Now, ladies and; gentlomen," said
,the Captain. . ,
The Judge appeared, with a very sol
emn face, his coat buttoned tight to his
throat, and the party started. Col. May
of Missouri, who read Voltaire and
didn't believe in anything, maliciously
took the Jadge's arm and remarked :
"You didn't finish your Rtory, Judge."
The Judge frowned reprovingly.
"But really," persisted the Colonel, UI

from the solemn services about to take
place. Do tell me if they ever caught

"The Sheriff hunted and advertised, bnt

at sight. " Sh h h here we are at.the
The passengers, officers and crew
gathered about the grave. The Judge
removed his bat, a-iU as the Captain
uncovered the faces of the dead, com

Just then the Judge's eye fell upon
the dead woman's lace, and he screamed:
"And there's the Sheriffs assailant!"
