The Genevieve Who Married Another
"Genevieve," says James, his deep
voice trembling a Lit, "Genevieve, I
Want you very mnrh."
"Very well, James," whhtpered bat k
Genevieve, "and 1 only wonder bow 1
waited as patiently as I did for you to
tell roe no."
James laughed u bit. then just a
little, low, pleasant laugh like the
Hone you pet from a viol when you
)et It nicely a laugh that exactly
matched the tremble In his voice
when he said he wanted Genevieve.
Very much, oh, very much, James
wanted Genevieve. For Jnmes was
growing to maii'H slzi and Gen
evieve was not a debutante, either.
"I suppose I nm a Blow old fellow,-'
Bays James, his strong anus about
Genevieve, "but you have to take me
tits I am "
"And glad enough to Ret you."

on his shoulder, and both her hands
clasped tight about his neck. It was
a good way up and some distance

1he 8llmness of youth, and he had al
ways been as bit; as big well, at
Ien.st big enough to take good care of
a wife, I cuu tell you that!
"Do you think they w 111 laugh at
us?" ventures Genevieve out of ntr
"Well, do you care if they do?"
croons James, to the top of her head.
"Do you care if they do? I'm sure
H makes no difference at all to me!
Why, I don't care that much " And
his indication cf how much be didn't
care made Genevieve thrill a bit more
and snuggle a bit closer, and then de-;
clare, "Yes, but. that is a great deal,
"No, it is only one! There are plen

the wonder of it to me that there

Imaybe a year or two older.
Laugh at them do! Giggle and
fcmlrk and say, "There's no fool like
-an old fool!"
You ought to bo slapped on the
wrist. Two people of forty can bo the
Very happiest two people in all this
big, wide world. I'm perfectly sure
you don't expect the wedded Genev
ieve and James of forty to be tired
of each other and not to care for any
kisses, thank you? Uecause if you do,
you are simply undermining the, very
foundations of the great American
home. And besides, it isn't true.
Jame3 had onco been in love with
Genevieve. Away back in those days
when ho was a slim young and she
was the sauciest girl he ever sr.v.
and the sweetest James had biun
very badly in love with Genevieve,
ltut he had been afraid to tell her so,
or too slow, or Just careless, or he
didn't have enough money or some
thing equally stupid. So he said never
a word to Genevieve about it. Then
It is very llUdy that ho was afraid
.Genevieve hadn't cared even u tiny
bit for him. Because James wus a
modest youth. Yes, there are too few
of them in the world v. orse luck.
Genevieve will never tell whether
die knew a thins about it cr not in
that old time when she wore little
white frocks and pinned apple blos
soms under her white chin and looked
like u bunch of apple blossoms her
self. Genevieve wears little whU
(frocks still on the warm summer
veilings but no more apple blos
soms. Though she will tuck n bunch
iof vlolots into her belt or cuddle a
big red rose.
So Genevieve will never tell wheth
er she knew about James. She just
ilaughs and says, "Why, of course, 1
knewdoesn't a girl always know
,when a man is in love with her?"
'Which is a pleasant fiction, of course.
There Isn't a word of truth In It.
But down In the depths of her heart
she whimpers, "That is an awful utory,
'because if I had known "
hmm p 1
,i;lilJllrli 1 1 III
So James never said a word to
Genevieve and Genevieve went and
married another and was unhappy
almost ever after.
James, however, did not marry an
other. With the persistence of his
type in following a program, he kept
on not telling girls he loved them.
And maybe he didn't. Who can tell?
But now, after well, after a certain
number of years, Genevieve went bar k
home because she was a widow and
could go back home, or away from
home, or to the wilds of the Fiji Is
lands, or to the depths of great cities,
and there was nobody to say her nay.
But Genevieve chose just, to go back
home. And back home was James.
James heard that Genevieve was
home again for a while and he went
to call, that being the proper thing for
old friends to do. Well, thera was
Genevieve,. flhe wns all bIoik1, but
she didn't fret about it. She was not
ho young, but she was extremely alive
and when James came .to think it
over as he strolled In the summer
moonlight, she was really much young
er. Heeause Genevieve, in her youth,
had been a Bcrlous-mlndcd young per
son. And. now she could '".ugh and
laugh and her eyes laughed and
crinkled up at the coiners, and her
hands were apt to grab the arm or
the sympathetic bystander and givo
It a little shake of pure good fellow
fhlp. Genevieve was quantities more
fun, though, maybe, James was not
awake to it, than she had been when
die wore the apple blossoms and
dreamed strenuous dreams.
So James Jtrolled home in the
moonlight, tall and ever so good
look at, manhood thrilling in him,
firm, white hands dug thoughtfully
into his pockets.
"I wonder " mused James.
James kept on calling and strolling
home in the moonlight, and pretty
soon ho Btoppcd wondering and began
to hope, lie had been loving for a
considerable period. ,
"Genevieve," said James, hia voice
thrilling with that viol tone she loved

They are happy so hnppy that they
believe that nobody ever dreamed a
happiness so good as theirs. They
are saying nothing about not being
not so young but not because- they
are dodging the issue, in tenderness
for each other, as the stories whimper
about when they tell of middle-aged
lovers" middle-aged, in sooth! They
simply never think of it at all. They
are plenty young enough. Never a
debutante in her teens, never a col

far-away look, are any happier than
They say romance is of youth alone,
that old ago may have, perhaps, its
dim reflection of the earlier rose, but
that forty stands as bare to tho com
monplace as the stripped branches of
a tree, waiting midway between tho
bourgeoning of the cummer and tho
glistening diamonds of the frost king's
crown but don't you ever believe it.
There isn't a year in all the years
of our Uvea, there isu't a minute of
all that tinkle In a silvery shower
from tho tiny clock upon your mantel,
that Isn't full of romance.

But if you really think so, you would
better speak to the undertaker and

deep note rl.e loves, "Genevieve."

Feasant Had Long Walk.
A French peasant tho other day
found himself the hero or villain of a
motor adventure, of which ho Is likely
to say but little. An artist, an advo
cate, and a doctor set out from Dijon
for C'halon-sur-Saone. On the way
tho artist was struck with a stone
thrown by the peasant. Tho car pulled
up, and the man, who had taken to
flight, was pursued and captured. Tho
motorists did not chastise tho offend
er, but lifted him into the motor, de
prived him of his money and watch,
coat and vest. They then put on full
speed, and did not stop until CO kilo
meters (about 31 miles) had been cov
ered. Then they put down tho pea
sant, wished him a pleasant wulk
home, and intimated that, possibly, he
would think the walk preferable to bo
lug handed over to the police.
When asked why he preached la
tho fields, Mr. Wesley answered:
"For two reasons; first, I was not
Buffered to preach in the churches;
nnd, second, no parish church could
contain tho congregations."

A R03THERN, 8ASK., FARMER
THE LUCKY WINNER.
Sir Thomas Shaughncsfiy of the Ca
nadian Pacific. Railway offered $1,000
in gold as a prize for the best 100 lbs.
of wheat, grown on the American con
tinent, to be competed for at the re
cent Land Show in New York. In
making tho competition open, the
donor of this handpome prize showed
his belief In the superiority of Ca
nadian wheat lands, by throwing tho
contest open to farmers of all Amer
ica, both United States and Canada.
The United States railways were by
no means anxious to have the Ca
nadian railways represented at the
show and a New York paper comment
ing on the results of the competitions
says that they were not to be blamed,
as the Canadians captured tho most
Important prize of the show.
The winner of this big wheat prize
was Mr. Seager Wheeler, of Rosthern,
Saskatchewan, and Its winning has
brought a great deal of credit on the
district. The winning wheat was tho
Marquis variety, and received no more
attention from Mr. Wheeler than his
other grain, but he is a very particu
lar farmer. Ills farm Is one of the
cleanest and best kept in the Ros
thern district, and this year he won
first prize in a good farm competition,
which Included every feature of farm
ing and every part of the. farm. J,ast
winter Wheeler was a prize winner
at the provincial seed fair in Regina.
Wheeler is a Arm believer in sow
ing clean seed' of the best quality pro
curable, consequently his grain Is
much sought after by the best far
mers for seed purposes.
Wheeler is an Englishman. He is a
pioneer of Rosthern, coming here fif
teen years ago. In tho last six years
he has done much experimenting, par
ticularly in wheat varieties. His farm
resembles an experimental farm. A
long driveway, lined on both sides
with trees, leads to a modest house,
the home of Wheeler, a modest, unas
suming man with the appearance of a
student rather than a man engaged in
There are now no free homesteads
to be had in this district, and farm,
lands are worth from ?20 to ?40 per
acre, which a few years ago were se
cured by their present owners, either
as a free gift or purchased at from 3
to $8 per acre.
It is not many miles from Rosthern,
where the farmer lives, who secured
tho first prize for wheat last, year at
the National Corn Exposition at Co-:
lumbus and West of Rosthern, about
150 miles, lives Messrs. Hill and Son,
who won the Colorado Silver Trophy,
valued at IL500, for the best peck of
oats, also awarded at the National
Corn Show at Columbus in 1910.
Not contented with the high honors
obtained in its wheat, Canada again
stepped forward into the show ring,
and carried off the Stillwell trophy
nnd $1,000 for the best potatoes on
the continent. This time the wiuner
was a British Columbia man, Mr.
Asahel Smith, the "Potato King." of
that province. The exhibit consisted
of one hundred and one varieties
