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
"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
"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
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
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
He himself went as a committee of
one to spy out the lay of the land at
Millville. He returned to seek out
"Old friend," he said, "I've been to
see your wife. Say, she's mourning
"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
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
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
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
"Burned down! how's this?" he ejac
ulated, and, catching a glimpse of the
unharmed side of the structure he
"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

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
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

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!"

DRIVE THE BODY TOO HARD
In This Hustling Age One Is Apt to
Forget to Give It Care It Is
What would you think of the man
who drove his automobile through a
field without regard to the stumps on
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

For Instance, here are five health
rules that you are not living up to:
Keep fresh air circulating in your
Exercise regularly every day walk

Eat wholesome, plain food and avoid
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
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

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

The judge discharged the juryman

whether, if some one took his watch
