A Day At The Cemetery

One day two boys picked hundreds of hickory nuts in the woods and stopped at a cemetery outside of town to divide them. As one of the boys was counting, "One for you, and one for me," two of the nuts rolled out underneath the fence, but figuring they could get them later the boys kept on counting the nuts they had.

At the same time a young man walking by heard the boys talking and raced back to town, terrified. "What's the matter?" asked an old man he met in the street.

"The Lord and the devil are dividing the souls in the cemetery!" the young fellow shouted breathlessly.

"I don't believe it," said the oldster. Him being someone who others called a Doubting Thomas.

"Come and listen," said the young fellow.

Now by this time the hour was growing late and the shadows were beginning to stretch out. But the boys had collected a large number of nuts and were still counting, but were quickly approaching the bottom of the sack.

Stealthily approaching the graveyard, the two men heard a voice saying, "One for you and one for me, one for you and one for me." Over and over the voice repeated.

Then it stopped and another voice was heard to say, "There, now we're finished, except for those two nuts outside the fence. Let's divide those and we'll be even."

The old man beat the young one back to town!
