(li'iitle Header, the pious looking
gentleman in today's sketch is an
old tinier noled for an avvtnl tem
per. When he got real mail, which
was very often, he had a habit of
throwing things away. The patient
wife, during all these years had been
picking tip and eating for their be
longings which he had thrown to
the winds when in a rage.
Hut yon know, "its a long lane
that has no turning." One day while
they were jonrne.ving along in their
prairie schooner, the faithful wife
made up her mind the next thing
he threw away right theie it would
Next morning, as usual, the cooking didn't suit him. He growled about the bacon,
cussed the coffee, finallv went Into a rage and threw his coffee cup about forty feet
out Into the weeds.
The wife silontl.v packed and loaded the "grub box" while he hitched up the team
and another day's journev was begun. After a forty mile drive they camped again for
the night. Slept peacefully under the stars and were up bright and early. The bacon
was soon fried, coffee boiled and breakfast called.
Ennner! He roared. "Where's that other cup?" "I reckon its back there on the
road where you throwed it yesterday morning," came the calm icply, as she leisurely
sipped from the onh cup left.
Reminds Vourb Truly of some husbands right here in Durant and Hr.van County.
Oh! ,ves, they want a loaded table. Want plentv to eat. and plcntv of time to eat it.
In fact, some men eat until they groan with misery, three squares a day and then
foam and rave when the bills come due.
To the wife of the grumbling husband I make this suggestion" Suppose some
fine day you set him down to a dinner ofvsalt and pepper, glass of water and a lib
eral suppl.v of tooth picks. Should he bellow out "whore's the grub." Tell him you
reckon the high priced stuff is down town in the ciedit giocery stores.
Then and there, no doubt he'll become a conveit to cash trading. He'll see the
wisdom of asking the price of groceries befoie bu.ving, instead of thirty to sixty days
When .vou pav cash, at least for your groceries, you'll live ahead instead of be
hind and live happy ever after.
