TOMjoined the new order of Cadets of Temperance, being attracted by the showy character of their "regalia." He promised to abstain from smoking, chewing, and profanity as long as he remained a mem- ber. Now he found out a new thing -- namely, that to promise not to do a thing is the surest way in the world to make a body want to go and do that very thing. Tom soon found himself tormented with a desire to drink and swear; the desire grew to be so intense that nothing but the hope of a chance to dis- play himself in his red sash kept him from withdrawing from the order. Fourth of July was coming; but he soon gave that up -- gave it up before he had worn his shackles over forty-eight hours -- and fixed his hopes upon old Judge Frazer, justice of the peace, who was apparently on his deathbed and would have a big public funeral, since he was so high an official. Dur- ing three days Tom was deeply concerned about the Judge's condition and hungry for news of it. Some- times his hopes ran high -- so high that he would venture to get out his regalia and practise before the looking- glass. But the Judge had a most discouraging way of fluctuating. At last he was pronounced upon the mend -- and then convalescent. Tom was disgusted; and felt a sense of injury, too. He handed in his res- ignation at once -- and that night the Judge suffered a relapse and died. Tom resolved that he would never trust a man like that again.
 
1
The funeral was a fine thing. The Cadets paraded in a style calculated to kill the late member with envy. Tom was a free boy again, however -- there was some- thing in that. He could drink and swear, now -- but found to his surprise that he did not want to. The simple fact that he could, took the desire away, and the charm of it.
 
2
Tom presently wondered to find that his coveted vacation was beginning to hang a little heavily on his hands.
 
3
He attempted a diary -- but nothing happened dur- ing three days, and so he abandoned it.
 
4
The first of all the negro minstrel shows came to town, and made a sensation. Tom and Joe Harper got up a band of performers and were happy for two days.
 
5
Even the Glorious Fourth was in some sense a failure, for it rained hard, there was no procession in con- sequence, and the greatest man in the world (as Tom supposed), Mr. Benton, an actual United States Senator, proved an overwhelming disappointment -- for he was not twenty-five feet high, nor even anywhere in the neighborhood of it.
 
6
A circus came. The boys played circus for three days afterward in tents made of rag carpeting -- ad- mission, three pins for boys, two for girls -- and then circusing was abandoned.
 
7
A phrenologist and a mesmerizer came -- and went again and left the village duller and drearier than ever.
 
8
There were some boys-and-girls' parties, but they were so few and so delightful that they only made the aching voids between ache the harder.
 
9
Becky Thatcher was gone to her Constantinople home to stay with her parents during vacation -- so there was no bright side to life anywhere.
 
10
The dreadful secret of the murder was a chronic misery. It was a very cancer for permanency and pain.
 
11
Then came the measles.
 
12
During two long weeks Tom lay a prisoner, dead to the world and its happenings. He was very ill, he was interested in nothing. When he got upon his feet at last and moved feebly down-town, a melancholy change had come over everything and every creature. There had been a "revival," and everybody had "got religion," not only the adults, but even the boys and girls. Tom went about, hoping against hope for the sight of one blessed sinful face, but disappointment crossed him everywhere. He found Joe Harper study- ing a Testament, and turned sadly away from the de- pressing spectacle. He sought Ben Rogers, and found him visiting the poor with a basket of tracts. He hunted up Jim Hollis, who called his attention to the precious blessing of his late measles as a warning. Every boy he encountered added another ton to his depression; and when, in desperation, he flew for refuge at last to the bosom of Huckleberry Finn and was received with a Scriptural quotation, his heart broke and he crept home and to bed realizing that he alone of all the town was lost, forever and forever.
 
13
And that night there came on a terrific storm, with driving rain, awful claps of thunder and blinding sheets of lightning. He covered his head with the bedclothes and waited in a horror of suspense for his doom; for he had not the shadow of a doubt that all this hubbub was about him. He believed he had taxed the forbearance of the powers above to the extremity of endurance and that this was the result. It might have seemed to him a waste of pomp and ammunition to kill a bug with a battery of artillery, but there seemed nothing incon- gruous about the getting up such an expensive thunder- storm as this to knock the turf from under an insect like himself.
 
14
By and by the tempest spent itself and died without accomplishing its object. The boy's first impulse was to be grateful, and reform. His second was to wait -- for there might not be any more storms.
