It Happened on a Farm In
a Western Stat
By MARTHA HEMINGWAY
Copyright by American Press Asso
It was Christmas eve on a western
farm.. A woman was putting her chil
drenEthel, aged eight, and Sammy,
aped six to bed while visions of toys
and sugar plums danced In their heads.
That some Christmas eve William
Kenly was riding on a railroad train.
His domestic affairs were not In a
condition to render the Christmas sea
son a happy one. He had been brought
np by doting parents, who had given
him everything he required and de
sired. Consequently when he came to
manhood, having never done anything
for himself, he didn't know bow to
make a living, ne was an attractive.
lovable fellow, whom the girls all liked.
He made a match with one of them
and married her.
Kenly's parents opposed the match
because Jennie Whiteomb, whom their j
son married, was working for her own j
living, whereas they hnd always moved ;
In circles whore girls played the lady j
In the-parlor. AH this Is now chang
ed, so that no stigma attaches to wo
men who work, even among very
wealthy people. But at that time the
Kcnlys considered that their son had
demeaned himself by marrying a ste
nographer and typewriter.
A few years after the marriage Mr.
Kenly, Sr., died Insolvent. This left
his son with a mother, a wife and two
children, for whose support he was,
as the only man In the family, respon
sible. Having been brought op to do
nothing, though highly educated, and
nfter his marriage having lived on an
allowance granted him by bis father,
he found himself unprepared for the
duties incumbent upon him.
It cannot be denied . that William
Kenly was not a heroic character.
But the majority of heroes are pre-
"OBEAT HEAVKNSl JENNIE I"
pared for heroism by adversity, and It
usually requires a long term of prepa
ration. The hero in this case was the
wife. Disappointed In her husband's
want of ability to bear the burden In
cumbent upon him, she offered to
take her children away and support
them, leaving him to do the best be
could for his mother. Kenly never
consented, but Jennie, who was a
character with decision necessary to
enter upon and carry out any plan she
decided upon, left her husband and
recommenced the labor which had fit
ted her for the present emergency.
Several years passed, during which
William Kenly did the best be could
for his mother. His wife, who was
one to "burn her ships" behind her.
lest between her husband's mother
and his family be would not do his
duty by either, refused to keep him
advised of her whereabouts. The
truth is that at the time of her mar
riage she felt keenly her husband's par
ents' opposition to her for the reason
that she worked for a living, and
now that adversity had come upon
them she was too proud to rely on
their son for the support that hla moth
Mrs. Kenly, Sr., died a few years
after the separation between her son
and his wife, and William, who loved
bis family and whose recent experi
ence bad enabled him to think and act
for himself, freed from all Incum
brance, took bold of the problem of
life with surprising vigor. He had
manifested more taste for tilling the
soil than anything else, and when a
boy had cultivated a kitchen garden
of his own In bis father's back yard.
When his mother died, though ap
proaching middle life, be began to ex
periment upon processes by which
plants are made to bear fruits of a
high order and In abundance. In this
fteld he devoloped a genius and, Bav
ins; made several Important discover
ies, was one of the first of those the
government scot oat to instruct farm
ers In new processes of growing crops.
With this brief synopsis of William
Kenly'a antecedents, we will take him
np In the train on Christmas eve,
where he was naturally enouKh think
ing of his wife and children, wonder
ing where they were and repining be
cause be would not be nble to spend'
the morrow with them. Since his
mother's death and the chance lu his
affairs be bad made repeated efforts
to find them, but had not succeeded.
He was at this time traveling among
farmers explaining to them some dis
coveries in the treatment of seed that
be had made himself and hnd received
a call from one who signed himself
John Carpenter to visit htm and give
him special Instruction. The letter bad
arrived the morning before Christmas,
and the farmer hnd stated that he
would not object to taking his lesson
n Christmas day. This bad appealed
to Kenly, who, being alone, dreaded
Christmas, especially since it always
set him to thinking about his lost wife
and children. He had telegruphed that
he would arrive on a train that stop
ped at the station nearest the Carpen
ter farm at 6 o'clock in the -lorulng
and was telegraphed In reply to come
directly to the farmhouse.
It was 6:30 o'clock when be ap
proached the home In question, cud
though it was still dark he snw by
lights In the windows that there were
children In the family, who were up
and diving into their stockings. Ills
heart sank within him at remembering
his own children, who. If they still
lived, were probably doing the same
thing. He wondered In what part of
the world they were and If their moth
er were In condition to give tbem
Christmas presents. One thing he
knew no new father was celebrating
Christmas with tbem, for be had never
received notice of an application for
divorce on the part of their mother
Snow had fallen the day befcre, and
a three-quarter lull moon, siuking to
ward the west, was casting a million
lights upon It Professor Kenly, as
he was now called, trudged on. wish
ing that he had some other place than
the farmhouse to spend a couple of
hours that the children might have
had time before bis entrance to exam
ine their presents and their exuber
ance of delight might have bad time
to expend itself. What he desired
was to be furnished with some break
fast and then to sit down with the
farmer and begin his Instruction. But
there was no other bouse near by, and
those he saw In the distance were all
lighted np. Indicating that fond par
ents and their children were making
merry over gifts Santa Claus had left
during the night. So. there being bo
hotel in the place, he was obliged to
go on and stand the merriment as best
he could. -
There was a babel Inside when, kick
ing the snow off his beats, be knocked
at the door. He heard a voice telling
the children to stop their noise for a
moment; then the door was thrown
open, and a woman stood in the open
ing before a background of logs burn
ing on a hearth, children, toys and the
confusion of Christmas morning.
"Great heavens! Jennie!"
There was no surprise on the wo
man's face, only a smile of welcome.
She threw her arms around the vlsl
tor's neck and drew blm into the house
"Is that Ethel?" But without wait
ing for a reply he took the child In his
arms and hugged her. while Sammy,
recovering from his surprise, with a
child's jealousy fought for his share of
"This is Hot an accident, Is it?" ex
claimed the father, turning to his
"No. I read in the Farmers' Home
and Fireside that Trofessor William
Kenly was instructing the farmers In
this state and wrote you under an as
sumed name to come and give ;ne
some instruction. I planned for your
coming at this time and hoped for It
but hardly expected it"
There was little opportunity at the
time for further explanation and giv
ing each other events that had occur
red since their parting. Botn were
happy in the knowledge that the bus
band had done his duty so far as be
bad been able, that bis mother bad
received the care due her and that he
had at last assumed the position to
which his talents entitled him. He
must Inspect every toy Santa Claus

had finished he took from bis pocket

and one to Sam. causing their eyes to

Then they all sat down to breakfast

He reverently gave thanks for the
happy Christmas reunion Providence

vouchsafed blm to assume his proper
position as head of the family.
All day the husband and wife felt as
if they were enjoying a happy dream
It seemed to tbem that it couTd not be
true. And Ethel, who was old enough
to remember her father when they
were parted, shared their delight As
