i Harmony Corners consisted ot a
store, a postofflce and a blacksmith
shop. Moses Stblff ran the store.
Jacob Schlff the postofiu-e aud Peter
Schiff the blucksnilt shop. Then there
was Philetus SchiiT. Aaron Schlff. Atlin
iron Schlff, GooUheart Schlff. Thurs
day Schlff. Godfeur SchiiT and Elijah
Schlff, all fanners, within a radius of
two miles. Each Schlff was related to
nil the other Sthiffs by blood or mar
riage. It was a settlement of Sc biffs
alone and had beeu for fifty years.
No strangers were allowed to butt In.
Old Moses, who ran the store with
the help of a son, was the patriaivh of
the flock. He was adviser. Judge and
Jury In all matters. There bad never
beeu a case for the lawyers in that
i-ommunity. If there was a disagree
ment It whs taken to Moses. He said
do this or do that, and It was done.
People said that Harmony Corner
was a living, breathing example of the
morality and unselfishness of human
t After all that half century of ponce.
Industry and good will God fen r SchiiT
;wtis the one to produce discord. It
was another proof that there's not hint;
Ju a name. It was seldom that nny
thliig called a Schlff away from home,
but on an occasion Godfcar had to
make a. journey to Pittsburg, eighty
miles away. It was a serious event,
jit called for serious talk 11ml many
prnyers. ne might return alive, but
the chances were very much against
it. His will had been made for years,
nnd be rend It over, fed the cows nnd
Godfear reached the Smoky ity
right end up, much to his astonish
ment. He saw bouses and stores and
factories. He saw a spwins machine
io a show window, aud as be stood
looking at It n "barker" pulled bim in
nnd the merits of the machine were
explained. He thought well of it.
There were seven children in his fami
ly and much sewing to do. Not n
Scuiff bad n labor saving machine of
any sort, not even a corn shetler or nn
npple parer. As their grandfather-!
had lived so were they living. God
fen r was in town three days. He call
ed to Inspect that sewing machine six
different times. At last he drew a
long breath and deckled to take the
chances and ordered the thing sent on
The Schlff 3 never dealt with pod
dlers nor ngents. The very same ma- !
( bine could have been bought at God-
fear's own gate nny day In the week.
, Moses sat on that machine in a Judi
cial capacity for a week and then de
cided that it must be given up. It
v.-as witchcraft; it was an innovation:
1t would break up the long prevailing
harmony of Harmony Corners. God
fear bucked. The Invention had been
tested, and it would do more sewing
In a day tbnn bis wife could do by
hand in n week. There was no odor
of brimstone about it. It ate no hay
or oats, and occupied but a small
vpaceT Some of the other Schiffs. and
particularly the wives', backed him up.
Of course, the news that Godfear
Sehiff had "broken out" was passed
nround the country, and the immedi
ate result was to bring a swarm of
sewing machine ngents down on the
Sehiff tribe. They hod 'sewing ma
chines that would tuck, hem, ruffle,
braid, embroider, patch, sew on but
ton, rock the baby, cburn the butter.
feed the hens, sort over potatoes, build
the fire nnd nil that, and they came
nnd talked and talked. Then the tin
peddlers and parlor organ men came.
Moses Schlff saw the cloud no bigger
than a man's hand, and he called a
fathering of bis chin. He was heeled
with statistics to prove how greatly
those Inventions of Satan had increas
ed the wickedness of the world. Thou-
hands of murders, burglaries, horse
thefts, elopements and so on could be
directly traced to them. Did they
want to find themselves on the gal
lows? Did they want to know that
their children were in state prison?
In fact, did they sigh to meet Satan
face to face aud be caught up and seut
down to the hot place by rapid transit?
If they bought parlor organs and
tewing machines, what nest? Why.
brass bedsteads, china ware, furs, new
hats, corn shelters, carpets nnd stuff ejj
chairs would be sure to follow, , nnd
then farewell to the harmony of Har
mony Corners. With tears in his
eyes he besought and wrestled, but a
number of the Schiffs had got started
on the downward rond nnd wouldn't
hold up. It was only four days after
the meeting that one of them bought
n egg beater nnd the click of the
spoon ngalnst the bowl would be heard
in his family no more. Then camo a
ilolhir alarm clock, and this was fol
lowed by n set of enne seated chairs.
Satan had got bis grip.
, In one year from that visit of God
fear's to Pittsburg the leaven was
working overtime. The Schiffs were
jat odds; they were bringing lawsuits
tagalnst each otljej; they were puttinj
down ingrain carpets in their parlors;
they were buying patent churns; the
men no longer went to church bare
'footed and in their shirt sleeves. Old
Moses called another fathering and
threatened nnd bulldozed, but the cy
clone had got started and the only
(way out for him was to commit sui
cide. Two years later half of Har
mony Corners was owned by others
than Schiffs, and the harmony of ball!
a century was harmony no more. And
then Us name was changed to the one
