THE MODEL GUEST
UTlfY COUSIN Jnnies Is coming
IVx to spend a week," anounced the
landlady, "and I can't say I'm over
joyed. He's the most unsatisfactory
visitor I ever saw. You can hardly
get 4 word out of him. He isn't a bit
like his brother
Jeremiah, who .Is
full of fun, and
the best company
Imaginable.
"Your remarks
show how little
true greatness Is
appreciated in a
moral family
boarding house,
where the dam
ages are collected
in advance," ob
served the star
boarder.' "In my
opinion, James is
the model visitor. If I had my own
household, with a charming bride to
pour the Imitation coffee, and a vine
and flgtree in a Jardiniere, I'd send a
special delivery letter to James, ask
ing him to come and stay for ten years
or more.
"There's something restful and
soothing. about that gifted man. He
never bothers anyoody. No one has
to waste precious moments entertain
ing him. It Isn't necessary to discuss
the weather predictions, or dig tip a
lot of ' statistics about the crops. In
order to make James have a good time.
You don't have to show him the old
plush photograph album, and describe
the ancestry of the melancholy effigies
whose pictures appear therein. Near
ly all visitors are bores, my dear Mrs.
Jiggers, because they have to be en
tertained. Somebody has to sit up
with them and thrash out last year's
gossip. They have no initiative or
referendum. They hove no resources
of their own. In order to have a pleas
ant visit, they need help.
"Your cousin James Is a man after
my own heart. I remember his last
visit quite well. He' came In the eve
ning, nnd after supper he took a chair
on the porch. Knowing lie was a
guest, I felt It my duty to entertain
him In the conventional way. I
dragged my chair close up to his and
remarked that It was a pleasant eve
ning, but the presence of a cloud bank
In the northwest almost convinced me
that there would be rain within twelve
hours, In which case, I proceeded,
there would be much jubilation among
the honest old farmers, whoso crops
were suffering for moisture.
"James listened to my remarks and
then looked at me, in a sad, reproach
ful wny, as though he thought It a
shameful thing that imbeciles should
be at large, and then he took his chair
to the opposite end of the porch with
out having said a word. I must con
fess that I felt Jike a counterfeit
kopeck for a few minutes, but the
more I considered the matter, the
more I admired and respected that
remarkable man.
"He used to go downtown every
morning and buy a paper backed
novel, or a fiction magazine, and then
he'd read it all day, and when be was
done with his literature be left It
where the bonrders could get it. I
didn't hear him say ten words during
his visit, yet you say, Mrs. Jiggers,
that he .Is an unsatisfactory guest.
Elderly landladies, whose intellects
have been warped by long years of,
parsimony, are hard to please.
"Jeremiah, whom you describe as
Jolly and agreeable, should be sup
pressed. He has collected all the old
cheesey stories ever manufactured,
and Insist upon telling them. He has
a horrible habit of making puns, and
considers himself n humorist, be
cause of It. You couldn't bribe him to
sit down with a book or magazine and
behave himself. He has to be enter
tained every .minute of his time, and
the" only wny you can entertain him
Js by letting him do the entertaining.
"He Is a genial old freak who thinks
he Is a privileged character, and every
body's pet. The last time he was here
he went Into my sumptuous apart
ment and used my razor to ebave the
southeast quarter section of his
countenance. His whiskers are full
of barbed wire, and the razor was
mined. When I spoke to him about
It he thought It funny. Yet yon refer
to such a man as an agreeable visi
tor. I blush for you, Mrs. Jiggers."
In Moderation.
"Wonld you advise a candidate to
stay on his front porch?" .
"Yes," Answered Senator Sorghum;
"but only part of the time; Just long
enough to take care of his voice and
get together a good bunch of speeches
for delivery on tour."
, Just it '
"I thought you said yon had a fine
ending to your automobile trip." ,"So
I had." "Your chauffeur told me you
were arrested for speeding.", "Well,
wouldn't you call a wlndup In the po
lice court a fine ending?"
Weighted With a Watch.
The watch of Charles V, which was
one of the earliest of these time-pieces,
weighed twenty-seven pounds.. TX was

Contented
Wouldn't make much of a rich man, I guess.
Couldnt be happy in up-to-date dress;
Too fond of shirt sleeves an' slippert at night,
An' the old pipe to smake, an' the flickerin' light
Of a grate fire I've started-myself, an' the ease
Of doin' exactly the way that I please, -
Like imttin' my feet on the rungs of a chair'.; '" '
An' droppin asleep, if I want to, right there;
Too fond o' havin' folks rap at my door
An' know they are welcome to come long before
I've answered the knock, which they never would do
If somehow I'd gathered a million or two.
Kiches are fine to possess, but I vow
I'm sort o' contented with life as it's now;
-The home's not a palace, but somehow I find
It's fashioned to suit just my style of a mind;
The mother an' I can sit here by the fire
An' know we've got all that our hearts can desire;
The children around us, thoif friends droppin' in
To bank the piano and kick up a din,
An' fun goin' on an' the room's just ablaze
-With gladness an' mirth in the old-fashioned ways
An' this couldn't happen, I'm tellin' to you,
If somehow I'd gather a million or two.
Folks are scared to oe friendly with rich men and great,
They never come neighborin' up to the gate
Of a feller that wallows in silver an' gold,
An' even the fire that sits by seems coidj
Wer.lth haa too much convention an' fashion an' sham,
An' I guess I am happier juot as I am;
I need all my neighbors to drop in an' call
Without bein' invited, an' better than all,
I need nil the children contented at home,
Jus glad to be here an' not wantin' to roam.
So I rill up my pipe an' rejoice through an' through
That I'm not alone with a million or two.
Edgar A. Guest.
A NEW FIELD FOR TEACHERS
The best paid high school teachers
in Missouri outside of the large cities
are the teachers of Vocational Agri
culture. The salaries of such teachers
range from $2000 to $3000 a year.
These teachers must have had practi
cal experience on a farm and must
have had training in an agricultural
institution which gives course lip
proved by the federal and state au
thorities. The Missouri College of Agricul
ture has, now in attendance, more
than 100 young men preparing them
selves for teaching Vocational Agri
culture in Missouri high- schools.
There are now 73 such schools in Mis
souri. This number will' be increased
as the demand grows. Teachers in-
tending to qualify for this work
should write to the College of Agri
culture for further information.
