Josefa Followed Her Nose, as
Was to Be Expected.
By MARTHA M'CULLOCH.WILLIAMS
If Josefa had not had the Morris
nose things might have happened. The
Morris nose, understand, was more
than a feature-rather a hall mark of
sorts throughout Rabun county. Who
ever owned it was held bound not only
to follow it, but to keep it going in the
social lines marked out by Great-grand
faher Morris, a gentleman whose spir
it had been as high as his nose.
She was not high spirited, but in
stead meek and lowly in mind, as be
came her very moderate fortune. Her
mother, a born Morris, had married
badly. At least the family thought so
and had never scrupled to say that
poor Billy Clayton never did but one
sensible thing-namely, dying before
he had quite wasted his wife's dowry.
She had brought him land and money
-and the laud remained, only a little
farm, to be sure, but big enough to
maintain the widow and her child.
It would take managing, of course,
but the Widow Clayton, she that was
Anne Morris. was a born manager.
That was exact truth. In proof take
the fact that when Josefa was eight
ecen she had been fairly educated, kept
always in wholesome comfort and had
had all along clothes quite as good as
any of her richer cousins.
What wonder then that Cousin Anne,
who never whined or asked for any
thing-advice least of all-was well
liked and wholly respected throughout
the whole family connection.
What wonder either that Cousin
Maria Dalton, also a born Morris, who,
having no children, was a chronic join
er and daughter of whatever came
along, took a violent fancy to Josefa.
Maria Dalt6n was mighty proud of the
Morris blood and doted especially upon
great-grandfather. She had a copy of
his portrait over the mantel in her
front parlor and had coaxed Lemuel
Morris, his eldest grandson, into giving
her his commission in the Continental
army. That, too, of course, was fram
ed and hung up beside the portrait.
Inevitably the next thing was to en
tertain her fellow daughters upon the
occasion when state chapters fore
gather, and that meant having Cousin
Anne and Josefa help in the entertain
ing, notwithstanding neither of them
beloged to so much as one chapter.
There were reasons, Mrs. Dalton was
careful to explain to the visitors
Cousin Anne was the greatest home
body, and Josefa, staying with her
dutifully, had no need of belonging.
"Yes: Josefa is going to be my heir
ess. I believe so in blood," she confid
ed to the lady president. That person
pricked up her ears. Mrs. Dalton was
rich, and the lady president had a son,
a lawyer, just starting to practice in
the county town. He needed a wife
badly, especially one with expectations
and family influence, and he was right
on the spot, having come along with
the chapter, not only by way of escort,
but as speaker of the occasion. He
had seized upon it as a chance to show
his enthusiasm for local history. His
mother. Mrs. Melvin, was inclined to
regard the fact in the light of a special
providence. She managed to speak
with him quietly, a little apart, before
he read his paper and was delighted to
hear him throw into the reading solid
chunks of enthusiasm for Rabun coun
ty and its glorious past.
Before the assembly broke he had
met Josefa and talked with her a good
half hour. Next week he called on her
and the next and the next. Mrs. Dal
ton was early taken into his confidence
and of course was his warm advocate.
"Yes, as you say, Josefa is a Morris
out and out, all but the name, and we'll
change that," she said, smi' ag at him.
"And, remember, you are going into
politics. I want you to be senator at
the very least. No matter how high
you go, Josefa 'II do you credit. But
don't you fool yourself thinking you
can get her just for asking. That is
not the way with girls of the Morris
blood. Court her like a -man and don't
take 'No' If she gives it to you the first
Jack Melvin listened, yearning to grit
his teeth. He was not the least bit in
love. Josefa was not pretty for all she
was so fresh and wholesome, and he
craved beauty above everything. Be
sides. there was Amelia Ware, but he
dared not let himself think of her.
Since they could not marry he meant
to marry this ,Iosefa. I made him
laugh only to think of her saying "No"
to him. flow could she when she knew
nobody else save a few awkward coun
Imagine his state of mind when Jo
sefa did say "No" the first time, the
second, the third and each time more
and more as though she meant it. Aft
er the third rejection he went to Mrs.
Dalton. Sh(e laughed a laugh of indul
gent pride when he had finished, but
said emphatically: "I don't blame Josey
-not a bit. You've got the name of
being a dreadful flirt. Whether or no
you deserve it I am not saying. I'll go
over and stay all night with Cousin
Arne tomorrow. You come out the
next, day. I think you'll find things
changed a bit."
Woman disposes; man proposes;
someti^is fate intervenes. Josefa
stood with fate in this particular wres
tle. She said "No" again and in a way
that told Jack Melvin at least the
game was up. But Mrs. Dalton held on
stoutly to her plan. Cousin Anne had
fallen in with it ardently. For all her
thrift she had a whole lot of family
pride. Moreover, she wanted Josefa to
get the Dalton money. So she joined
forces with her cousin, and between
thek they gave the prospective heiress
Obstinacy. pure and simple-that was
what ailed .osefa. So, said heT two
elders in coiolave. There couldi not
possibly be anybody in Melvin's, way.
Josefa had been sent to school, the
strictest possible boarding school, when
she was barely thirteen. Since she
came back from it none of the young.
sters roundabout had done more than
speak civilly to her. Not one had so
much as come to the house, except
Clayton Trigg. who was a faroff cous
in and had come to buy yearlings and
fat lambs. In virtue equally of his
kinship and a sudden shower he had
stayed to dinner and after it had shak
en hands cordially with both the ladies
of the house. All he had said to Josefa
was that if she happened to be at the
county fair next fall ho hoped she
would look at his saddle horses. Mug
gins and Mill Boy, as he was sure they
would win the blue ribbon.
At fair time, with Josefa still obdu
rate, Mrs. Clayton had doubts as to
going. but Mrs. Dalton overruled the
doubts. Thus the three went together
in the Dalton barouche. and for the
best part of the day Josefa was handed
over to Melvin. Just how she managed
it she never knew, but toward 4 o'clock
she slipped away from him and lost
herself in the crowd. It was a dell
cious sensation. All the late summer
she had been telling herself she would
run away if she had a chance, but how
could she when she had not so much
as a dollar of her own? She almost
ran until she came to the farther side
of the amphitheater. At the foot of
the stairway she found herself stopped.
her hand strongly gripped and a frank.,
sunburned face with honest blue e.ves
smiling down at her, but flushing it
spite of its sunburn.
Mrs. Dalton was off with a knot of
the daughters. Mrs. Clayton stood'rnt
In contemplation of prize patchwork.
Each believed Josefa safe with the
other; also that Melvin was a further
guard. Therefore they smiled affably
when the ringmaster shouted that
there was a new feature, a wedding in
the exhibit of Scrollslw, Varnish &
Co., the enterprising furnishing men.
A popular young couple had agreed t"
be married in the parlor arranged by
the firm, who meant to show their ap
preciation by making the newly wed a
present of the suit. Mrs. Dalton said
to her next neighbor: "Oh. I reckon it's
somebody from the back country. It
must be. Only bumpkins and their
sweethearts still tolerate parlor suits."
The neighbor nodded, but added:
"Let's go and see. I come to fairs
mostly to see that sort of people. They
are sociological exhibits, you know
better worth while than anything in
"Do you think so? Then let's hurry."
Mrs. Dalton agreed, but somehow in
spite of hurrying their progress was
slow. They came close enough at last
to hear without seeing. After the ben
ediction the crowd drew its breath,
and women in it whispered: "Why. did
you ever! The girl looked radiant and
quite the lady. And the fellow didn't
kiss her, although the squire bade him
"Here they come!" said others, fall
ing apart to make way. Mrs. Clayton
had somehow met them. Melvin was
across the way, with Amelia Ware. her
eyes downcast, clinging to his arm.
Between them, bright eyed, head up,
walked Mr. and Mrs. Clayton Trigg.
Josefa went straight to her mother,
saying demurely, but 'with the least
hard drawn breath: "We're going on a
little trip. mother, but it won't be ex
travagant. The money for the parlor

"And then we're going to take care
of you always." Clayton Trigg Inter
Mrs. Dalton was too stunned to
speak. but Mrs. Clayton said compos
edly: "Well. Joe. I suppose you had to
follow your nose. The Morrises al
ways did have their own way."
PRACTICAL HEALTH HINT.
The surroundings go a long
way toward making exercise
beneficial. That work at which
one wins his daily bread is tire
some usually. It is restraint. He
works because be must earn
money. And there is just as
much physical unfitness among
workingmen as there is among
Light exercise that is enjoyable
often does much more good than
heavy exercise that is forced.
That is why games which are
founded on exercise do much
more good than the same time
spent in housecleaning, making
barrels or hauling lumber.
Recreation is the first cousin of
exercise, and when the- two are
combined the results are always
more commendable. Exercise
without mental response is an
Exercise should embrace all
physical processes-circulation of
the blood, tearing down of worth
less tissue. upbullding of live
tissue, fresh air and all else that
goes to feed every portion of the
body and keep it healthy. And
work at the bench ofttimes lacks
one. two or half a dozen essen
tlals and is therefore muscular
abuse rather than muscular use.
