Q 182*. by McClure N'ewapaper Syndicate..
Under the big maple tree In Mrs.
Addy's front yard sat Mrs. Addy's
bbarder-Bvnlyn Byron, who was a
clerk down vt tho lumber mill near
the bridge. Evalyn was an orphan
and had lived for a long time with
Mrs. Addy, who had been an old
friend of the girl's parents. Every
Sunday afternoon nf ter dinner, when
the dishes were nil washed and put
away, Evalyn came out and sat on the
rustic bench under the maple, with
a book or letters to write. Some
times Mrs. Addy sat there too, but
today some one hud token her for a
ride In a crowded motorcar and there
was not even room for one more.
"Sorry, Evalyn," called out Mr.
Peters, as the widow squeezed Into
the tonneau. ','Your turn next time I"
"Don't bother about me, Mr. Peters,"
protested Evalyn, as she waved a gay
farewell and returned to her' hench.
But when the car had vanished around
n turn of the country rood she did
feel rather lonely. Sunday had a way
of shaking her out of her dally rou
tine and making her restless, though
she needed the repose. . "It ls lonely
just us two, isn't lt, Bob?" she asked
the airedale beside her.
The dog cocked his head on one
side and barked shnrply. Then he
Jumped down and ran frantically up
and down the yard, close to the fence.
"Funny how he does that every time
I mention his name I" murmured Eva
. lyn, thoughtfully, "but he ls the dear
est thing, and he's all my own-un
less someone comes along and claims
him : but no one could need him more
than I do, could they, Bobsy?" The
terrier came bounding to put his head
in her lap and caress her pretty
hands.
Some one came whistling down the
path-a tall young mon, bare-headed,
sun-burned, athletic looking, with
clear gray eyes and well-brushed
brown hair. Evalyn had seen him be
fore-.somewhere-It was an effort .to
recall. He was a stranger in the vil
lage.
He looked at Evalyn, a fleeting
glance that took in all her girlish
sweetness, even the blue of her eyes,
and then ho saw the dog, stopped
short, and stared.
The airedale saw him at the same
moment, hts eprs lifted, and then one
cocked forward expectantly.
"Bob!" warned Evalyn, putting out
a hand td stay his quivering body.
But she was too late ; in that, fraction
of a second he had gained the fence
in two bounds and then sailed over
the barrier to fall in n scrambling
heap at the man's feet. Then he found
his balance and circled, leaped and
barked frantically, scattering dust nil
over the nice clothes of the well
dressed stronger. 1
"Down!* commanded the man
kindly. '
The airedale leaped and thrust a
pink tongue at his cheek.
"Down, you rascal 1H laughed the
stranger, stooping down to caress the
dusty little gray hurricane. Then he
lifted his eyes to Evelyn's and smiled
at her. She was leaning over the
fence, panic-stricken for fear Bob had
found his owner.
"Your dog?" asked the hatless one.
Evalyn hesitated. Bob was her
dog, by all tho laws of Anding-and
needing] This prosperousdooklng
youth probably had hundreds o?
friends-money to buy dozens of dogs

mouth set In a severe line.
"Belong to you?" asked the man,
rising ond looktng her straight In the
eyes.
She nodded.
"Ohl" he exclaimed sharply arid
looked away.
"Why did you aBk-and why are
you surprised?"
"I beg your pardon-but I thought
you were going to say, 'No.' " He
bent down, whispered something In
the dog's ear, patted the rough coat
affectionately. Then he lifted Bob
and dropped him over the fence into
the grass where he whined pitifully.
"Nice dog you have here," said tho
stranger squaring hts shoulders ns he
turned away, but Evelyn was snr?
that his eyes were wet.
He went on his way, while the girl
stared resentfully nfter him and the
little dog crept close to the ground,
following the . fence, whining softly
The man was opposite the house now,
he was passing the snowball bush,
soon he would be beyond recall.
Suddenly Evelyn gave a little sob
bing cry and ran across the yard.
She caught up with him as he pnssed
the snowball bush.
"Stop!" she cried.
As if he had been listening for that
call, he turned swiftly and leaped the
fence.
"You called me?" he nsked eogerly.
The girl's charming face dropped
Into her hands. "It Is not my dog-I
wanted him so-I found him in the
bushes beside the bridge n month ago
-one of his paws was hurt : I think
an automobile must have struck him.
I brought him home-here-and be
cause I htfve no one who really be
longs to me, though Mrs. Addy ls so
kind. I adopted him. I tried to find
out his name-he wore no collor-and
T tried ever so niany, but when I said
.Bob' ho went wild. I believed lt was
his name. That's ?ll 1"
Tiie ..inn's eyes fell to the dog, who

"His name's 'Sandy'-he recognized
my name when you called 'Bob,' *' apob
ogized Sandy's owner. "About a
month ago I chained him up. I was
going to the city and couldn't take
him that day. When I got home I
learned he had slipped his collar and
followed the car. I must have left
him far behind, poor little beggar. If
I had only known \*r
Sandy was leaping now between the
man and the girl, torn between two
loves. ''Do you mind keeping him
a while longer?" asked Bob Mason.
"I will come after him ldter-it's too
bad to tear him away so suddenly."
"That Is very kind of you," said
Evalyn primly, but her eyes shone
with Joy. When she was alone with
the amazed Sandy she kissed the
startled canine on his black muzzle.
"I don't wonder you like him, Sandy,"
she whispered.
Bob Mason, who turned out to be
a stockholder in the lumber mill, liv
ing in the adjoining; town, came many
times to visit Sandy; though Mrs. Addy
declared the poor beastle played sec
ond Addle to Evalyn. But late in the
fall, when lt was too cold to sit un
der the maple, Bob told Evalyn that
they must rench n decision about the
ownership of Sandy.
She looked wistfully into the glow
lng fire, while Bob adoringly regarded
her dainty ? profile. "Let Snndy
choose." she evaded, and when they
asked Sandy, that most Intelligent of
airedales, stood erect and placed one
paw on Evnlyn'8 hand and the other
on Bob's knee.

BELIEF IN SIGNS STRONG
Most People Have More or Less Super
stition, Though They May Not
Admit lt.
Fear of tho supernatural, which is
commonly known as superstition, finds
a resting place In almost every heart.
Everybody knows of the "13" supersti
tion and the thousand and one "signs"
by which impending disaster or evil
luck is foretold. Many are aware that
even the strongest minds have been
mid are being dally stirred by these
signs, and that all men have more or
less faith In them. Actor folk, gam
blers, business men, financiers, women
in nil stations of life, freely admit that
they believe In signs to a grenter or
lesser ?legree, and that they are none
the worse because they do not unneces
sarily run counter to their belief that
"divinity shapes our ends, rough-hew
them how we may."
Jay Gould, as a young mon, lind a pro
found conviction that he would die in a
year of his life which was divisible by
seven. When ho was thlrty-fivo he was

Commuter'? Cigar His Time Table.
The methodical man, whoBe home
was about a half-mile from the sub
urban railroad station, had never been
known to hurry for his morning traiu.
While other commuters rushed along
with hurried glances at their watches
and at the clock in the tower of tho
station he managed to got to his desti
nation just as the whistle sounded from
the crossing above. His fellow travel
ers generally arrived too soon.
"My method ls really very simple,"
he explained. "All I do ls. watch the
length of the cigar that I'm smoking.
It's an unfailing habit of mine to get
up at exactly the same time each morn
ing, etat breakfast and then light a
cigar of a standard brand and always
of the same size. Then I look through
the news of the duy and start for the
station. If- I'm late I can tell by the
degree to which the cigar has burned.
If It's still early there will be an inch
or so left. I throw the butt away Just
as I reach the station."
He Knew the Game. \
A Greek sailor went to a bank on
the New York water front to cash a
check. As he came out be saw two
men standing on the corner. They
separated, and as he walked down the
street one went before him, one be
hind. The man before pulled a hand
kerchief. Out flew a thousand-dollar
and a Ave hundred-dollar bill. The
man behind ran forward, picked up
the bills and stopped the sailor.
"Hey," he whispered, "if you keep
your mouth shut I'll divvy with you.
You put In what you took from the
bunk and we'll spilt**
The sailor raised his hand and hit
thc fellow a crack across the eyes.
That game had been tried on him
before.
Branded Ears of Stock.
In the office of the justice of the
peace of Lyme township. Huron
county. Oh'io, are preserved records
extending over the entire period of
the township's history. One of these
ls entitled "Record of Ear Marks In
the Township of Lyme."
In the days of early settlement little
of the land was fenced, and cattle,
hogs and -sheep wandered at will.
These ear markings served the same
purpose as branding on the, western
ranches today. The first entry was
made under date of April 14. 1818.
These marks admitted to transfer

CUT COTTON COST
BY MAKING FOOD
Southern Farm Prosperity Absolutely
Dependent on Cutting "Cash Crop"
Production Cost Through Pood
Making And Saving.
Atlanta, Georgia.-(Special).-The
cotton farmer got his "bumps"
again in 1921 belween boll weevil, un
favorable seasons, food and grain buy
ing on oredlt, combined with a price
on cotton insufficient to 'pay him out.'
Same old story, the same thing that
has happened three or four times In
the last dosen year?," said H. O.
Hastings, President of the Georgia
Association, an organisation for state
wide development.
"We might Just as well face the
fact that with the world wide finan
cial and political mix-up In Europe
following the world war, there is no
possible chanco for using normal
quantities of cotton at profitable prices
to us if we continue to grow cotton
on the high cost basis that wa hare
been doing.
"Cotton ts th? one best money crop
for the South, and probably always
will be. The time of war prices ls
Over and the problem from now on ls
to lower cost of production and at the
?ame time afford the cotton grower a
fair profit.
"Cost of making cotton is primarily
the cost of food, grain and fo vge
for the farmer, his family, his lal >r
ers or tenants, and his work stock.
Cutting food, grain and forage costs
by home production will reduce cot
ton costs from one-third to one-half.
"Plant for an abundance of food,
grain and forage, thus cutting down
store bills, and the lower prices for
cotton will not hurt BO much. We can
not , with European countries so thon
oughly disorganized, reasonably expect
high prices for cotton for several years
and we must make cotton at lower
cost, or else quit cotton growing.
"Most of us cannot quit cotton,
hence the absolute necessity of food,
grain and forage planting in 1922 -
the making on home acres of every
pound of food and grain needed to seo
us through.
"In this food production program,
take the homo vegotablo garden seri
ously. Give the home garden a squaro
deal, and lt wilt surprlae you in the
amount of healthful food produced. It
takss the least ground, can be plant
ed the earliest, brings quick returns
and it kept replanted and worked will
stay by you all the soason through."
