DAILY SHORT STORY "
SHEEP RANCH
By Stanley Cordell.
15 BLIND A never
U re sliced how
important she was M
till the met Simon |j
Conroy, or how Bj
unimportant she K
could be until she H
married him. R
They met in
Hollywood the year |
Belinda came out r
from Chicago to
take a crack at t
getting in the mov- V
ies, and Simon \
came down from
his Montana sheep
ranch for a fort- ?
night's holiday. rf
A mutual friend **
introduced them. e>
Simon fell madly, k
Insanely in love. I'’
He pressed his suit L
frantically. He
told her that he
didn't want to live
anv longer unless
she would marry him.
Belinda was flattered but firm. Yes.
•he admitted, she did love him. but
•he'd come to Hollywood to get Into
the movies and there was a streak
of stubbornness in her that wouldn't
let her give up until the enterprise
had a fairer rhance.
So Simon went back to his Montana
•heep ranch, promising to write
every day, and swearing by all the
planets that he was coming back in
the Spring to carry her away with
him, whether she liked it or not.
It developed that he didn't have
to carry her away. She was quite
willing to go. Hollywood proved dis
appointing and disillusioning. When
Simon arrived in May she was sick
of the sight of the place.
They were married the next week.
Both declared themselves the hap
piest people in the world. They re
turned to Flatrock and to Simon's
•heep ranch, and Belinda fell in love
with the place. It was isolated, but
beautiful. There were weekly trips
to town and occasional parties at
neighboring ranches. And didn't she
have the best husband in the world
who loved and adored her?
The Summer passed. Simon was
much away from the ranch. Then
the flocks returned from the grazing
4n the uplands and Winter set in.
Bnow came and the roads to town
were blocked. The ranch became more
Isolated than ever.
* * * *
TN DECEMBER they had one of the
worst storms of the year. The
ploughs didn't even attempt to break
through the drifts fos more than a
week. Belinda, •unused to such iso
lation, had not overabundance of pro
visions, and on the sixth day she ran
out of flour.
‘‘Well have to get to town somehow,
darling," she told Simon. "There’s
not much point in trying to cook
without flour. Besides, I've a tooth
that's been bothering me and I ought
to see a dentist.”
Simon shook his head. "No use
In trying. Roads are blocked solid.
We'll have to wait until thd ploughs
get around to tunneling us out.”
The day after that a sheepherder
eame in and reported to Simon that
the sheep salt was running low. Si
mon's face went white and his fore
head became furrowed in consterna
tion.
"Good heavens! Why didn’t you tell
toe before?”
He leaped to the telephone and
barked Into the
transmitter. With
in an hour huge
rotary ploughs
were on the road
tearing a path
through the drifts.
Within two hours
a way was cleared
I and trucks thun
f dered into town
^ and back again
T~ with the sheep salt.
—, Belinda watched
all this with amaze
y ment, with a sense
Y of horror, with a
Jf. furious anger.
rk “So sheep are
)■ more important
^ than your own
wife? Your wife has
\ a toothache and
runs out of flour,
and it doesn't mat
* ter. The dear little
sheep run out of
salt, and—Dhooie!
—the whole country becomes upset."
Simon was surprised. He'd been a
sheep man all his life. He couldn't
understand what she was sore about.
And he was too concerned with the
condition of the sheep to explain.
And so a breach rose between them.
Small at first, widening and growing
with each passing day. If Simon no
ticed, he paid no heed. His indif
ference was the flame that kept alive
Belinda's burning resentment.
* * * *
r\ECEMBER passed and January
came, bleak and cold, bringing
more snow. Early in the month Be
linda's tooth got worse. But she
bore the pain without complaint, bore
it until one night it became unbear
able. She lay with a swollen Jaw,
moaning in delirium.
Simon came in and found her. It
was the first he had known of her
suffering. He looked at her and lis
tened to her and then went out. It
had snowed the day before. The roads
were again blocked. The phone lines
were down. But before midnight he
had returned with a doctor and a
dentist. He stayed beside his wife
until he knew that her sufferings had
ceased, that there was no danger.
Then he asked the doctor to help him
thaw out his frozen fingers.
When Belinda awoke, with a clear
mind, the doctor was still there, and
he told her how Simon had ridden
into town on horseback and made him
and Doc Oakes drive out that night
in a sleigh.
Just then Simon came into the room
and the doctor went out. Simon and
Belinda loked at each other and then
Simon stooped and kissed her.
"Darling, it's mostly my fault. I
should have tried to explain my point
of view. To a sheepman, his sheep
always come first. Everything he has
that is good and desirable, sheep
bought it for him. Sheep made it
possible for me to have you. Then
last night it occurred to me that
because of sheep I—I might lose
you.”
■ "Darling," Belinda smiled, "it's my
fault, too. I should have explained
my point of view. You couldn’t, of
course, know how much I loved you.
That’s what hurt—because I loved
you, and you let the sheep come first.
But now we understand, as so many
other husbands and wives have to
come to understand, and we can be
happy."

FLARES GUIDE AIRLINER
TO LANDING IN STORM
Sr the Associated Press.
PITTSBURGH, July 15.—Radio and
light flares guided a big Transconti
nental & Western airliner safely into
the county airport last night after the
field's lighting system failed during a
hepvy rainstorm.
The lights flickered out just before
the big ship, with a full passenger
load, was due, and while the airport
radio station maintained contact with
the plane, the ground staff placed red
flares and smudge pots to outline the
field and runway.
The ship meantime circled the field,
and then Pilot James Roe switched on
his landing lights, leveled off and
glided in smoothly. Although the field
•till was dark, he took off a few min
utes later for New York. The plane
had come from Columbus, Ohio.
