All work guaranteed and es timates furnished JARED AND BETTY By GEORGE ELMER COBB. "We will have the house painted a pure white with deep green trim mings," pronounced Betty Ross grand ly and with an air of definlteness. "We won't," bluntly objected her husband, Jared. "We won't?" challenged his positive and stubborn better half, bridling con siderably. "I said it." "Then let me tell you, Jared Ross, for once you said wrong. You own the lot of the new place, but the money I inherited from father paid for most of the building. A clean, clear white will look just cool and delight ful among all the trees and shrubbery. All the pretty fashionable villas along the river are ralnted in that way. Don't you want to be in style?" "I will stick to old notions and comfort," retorted Jared. "The old house was punkin yaller. The new one's going to be the same, or " "Or what?" flashed out the exasper ated Betty. "Or I don't move." "All right, then you'll just stay where you are," announced Mistress Betty, and flounced off in high dud geon. And this was the spark that set on fire the wilful tempers of two contrary minded people, good as gold in a gen eral way, but sternly "sot" in their never-glve-up ideas. Jared walked just once down to the new house. His lips set close, his brow grew grim as he saw the paint ers at work. "White and green, eh?" he comment ed wrathfully. "All right, Betty can shine in all its glory alone." That afternoon Betty received a note from the husband with whom she was at serious odds over a trifle. It informed her that he had decided to seek a little change and had gone to Ripley, a neighboring town, to visit a relative. Now from the first talk of the new house, which Jared had never favored, there had been a steadily widening gulf between the two. Betty had been "The Old House Was Punkin Yaller The New One's Goin' to Be the Same." galled to see an ambitious neighbor move to more modern quarters and was resolved "to let nobody get ahead of her." Jared had pointed out that tho old house was plenty good enough for them, that they were incurring un necessary expense In trying to live In a style they were not used to. There had been many bickerings all along the line. The painting of tho house was the last straw. Jared was given a royal welcome at Ripley. There resided about a half dozen grizzled old veterans who had belonged to the company Jared had captained In the war. They called themselves "The Old Guard," and they fiet to work to give their comrade a royal good time during his visit. "I say," observed Pearsons, one of the coterie, the second day after the arrival of Jared, "what's the matter with Ross. He don't act natural." And then the prevailing gossip was revived all the story of how the old couple were "out." "Why, this is all nonsense!" decided Pearsons. "We must patch up a peace somehow." He himself went as a committee of one to spy out the lay of the land at Millville. He returned to seek out Jared. "Old friend," he said, "I've been to see your wife. Say, she's mourning for you." "Oh, yes, lots!" scoffed Jared. "Did she send for me?" "Why, no. She'd never give up that ; strong will of hers tc send for you if you never go back, but she wants you Just the same. See here, now" "Drop it!" almost snarled Jared. "I'll show her I'm just as strong-minded as she is. Tomorrow I'm going off to Kansas tc see my brother. May stay there." Now this alarmed Pearsons. He foresaw that it would not do at all to allow a little family jar sunder the pleasant family relations of years. Once Jared drifted West he might never come back and thus the home life and happiness of two really lov ing but perverse souls would be wrecked. He held a secret conclave of "The Old Guard." The next night Jared was invited to a farewell supper. There was plenty of hard cider. Some that he drank was "hocussed." Then when he was fully under its influence, his well-intentioned comrades set about carrying out their plot. Jared was placed tenderly in a wagon box filled with fresh clean hay, and they drove him over to Millville. Now something had happened since the visit or Pearsons to that same town. It was this: The new house had caught fire and all but one side was burned up. Anyhow, the schemers placed Jared within the supporting arms of a big roomy garden chair facing what was left of the new house. They left him to wake up when he would, and worry his own way out of the impending tangle. When with early daylight Jared opened his eyes, it was to marvel at his strange situation. Then his glance became riveted on the new j house. "Burned down! how's this?" he ejac ulated, and, catching a glimpse of the unharmed side of the structure he fairly glared. "Why, it's not white and green at all. Punkin' yaller I vum!" And he rubbed his head, reflected, was mysti fied and all at sea, and then reflected some more. "Bless me, if I don't believe that perverse Betty changed her mind, and painted it my favorite color to please me! And now it's burned down. And she's alone at the old home probably, and poor old gal! She's met me more'n half way, and I'm a wicked wretch!" Yes, half an hour later, as Jared ncared the old home there was his wife straining the milk on the back porch, lie approached rather shame facedly. "Retty," he said, "you painted over that white and green to please me " "Yes, I did," retorted Betty spicily, "but 1 didn't do anything more. So you've come home, have you?" "Guess I have," acknowledged Jared, rather sheepishly. "See here, Betty, I reckon I was a little too sot in my ways. I'm sorry for the fire, after all your calculations. Was the place insured?" "Ye3, Jared." "Then we'll rebuild. Come, old wom an, cheer up, we'll rebuild, and, say, paint it white and green, if you want to." Betty's face was' puckering, the cor ner of her apron at one eye. "No, Jared," she said contritely, "we won't rebuild. It was a foolish, extravagant notion anyhow. I never knew how I loved the old home till you was gone, and " Jared came up to her and put his arm around her. "You're goii.g to do Just what you want to, you poor, dear old sweet heart!" he pledged. "Then we'll fix up the old home stead and stay where we're happy," said Betty. "We'll fix up the old wing and put on a new coat of paint " "White and green sure, Betty!" "No," declared Betty, again in happy tears "punkin yaller. They are the colors I love, just like I love you!" (Copyright, 1914. by W. G. Chapman.) DRIVE THE BODY TOO HARD In This Hustling Age One Is Apt to Forget to Give It Care It Is Entitled To. What would you think of the man who drove his automobile through a field without regard to the stumps on every hand? You would say he was crazy for run ning such a risk with so valuable a machine. And you would be right. But figuratively Rpeaktng, most of us drive our bodies where we would not think of running the most dilapi dated old automobile that ever exist ed. Did you ever think of that? Well, it's true. For Instance, here are five health rules that you are not living up to: Keep fresh air circulating in your sleeping room. Exercise regularly every day walk ing whenever you can. Eat wholesome, plain food and avoid alcohol. Don't grind too long on one task rest by changing work and interests. Laugh at small troubles and wait till the big ones come before worrying over them. Did you say you were living up to theee? If you are, you are a happy man or woman. For there is in store for the person who abides by these rules long life, happiness and pros perity. To be sure, the rules are cheap, simple and easy to follow, and maybe that is just the reason that so many of us fail to apply them to our lives. Keep the machine out of the field of stumps. That Is the only way to make it wear well and do good work. It is worth trying. Marion Tribune. Might Changs His Opinion. A Juryman at the Manchester (Eng land) assizes recently objected to take the oath on the somewhat novel ground that he did not believe that even when a prisoner was found guilty he could be guilty. He did not believe a prisoner was responsible for his actions. The judge discharged the juryman and later caused some laughter in court by asking him to consider whether, if some one took his watch that night, he would think it right to find the thief not guilty of stealing It I The Professions 1 t THE EGYPTIAN SANITARIUM OF CHRONIC DISEASES Smith-Hardin Bldg., Cor.

Slip-on blouses are a little like mid dy blouses. Buttons are peculiarly decorative this season. White craiuele mesh veils are an Important feature. Normandy-medicl and cowboy col lars are worn by all women from slX' teen to sixty. Small panama hats are trimmed with scarfs of heavy white chiffon or richly colored ribbon. The low, broad crowned derby is the best hat for riding, though some women wear sailor hats in summer. Pique in the now soft finish is very fashionable again for tennis frocks, and also as facings for washing shirts. Glazed straws are still smart, espe cially in the black and colored effects,! but the trend Is toward the unglazed all-white midsummer hats. The new sailor usually has some queer treatment of the crown. Either the crown is sloped off, dented, ridged or else shaped so as to appear rather lopsided.
