Two New Year's
By A. N. JONES
Copyright, 1910, by American Press
Jack Carmody couldn't meet a girl
without making love to her, to the ter
ror of his father and mother, who were
always In dread that lie would marry
some one far beneath his social status.
ack woke up one New Year's morn
ing, and the first words he said were
"I solemnly resolve on this first day
of the new year not to pay the slight
est attention to any girl for the whole
twelve months. But," here comes a
saving clause, "if I do pay any atten
tion to any girl it will be only such
person as my mother shall approve."
How pleasant one feels upon mak
ing a resolution! It seems as if all
past weaknesses are dead and buried
and a new pure life has opened up be
fore the resolver. Jack had especial
reasons to feel thus, for the night be
fore he had seen the old year out with
a party none of whom would have
been admitted to his paternal domi
cile. One of them, a girl with whom
he had been training for months, Moll
Dugan, had been lying in wait for
him and during the festivities had in
duced another girl to suggest a wed
ding with Moll as the bride and Jack
Carmody as the groom. Having im
bibed more than was good for him, he
consented, but was saved by a friend,
who put him into a closet and locked
It was the serious contemplation
of this escape that led Jack, waking
up at 11 o'clock on New Year's morn
ing, to make the resolve mentioned.
To one who makes a resolution with
a saving clause, the moment tempta
tion comes the clause looms up splen
didly. Jack found it dull associating
only with men, so he looked about him
for some nice girl of his own class
with whom he might pass an occa
sional idle hour. Miss Gwendolin
Kingsbury was a very ladylike young
woman to whom Jack's mother had
introduced him, trusting that the two
might make a match. It made very
little difference to Jack who was the
girl, and he became much to his moth
er's joy quite devoted to Miss Kings
bury. But just as Mrs. Carmody was
congratulating herself that her son
was about to close the deal with her
favorite her husband took it into his
head to buy a ranch. Thereupon Jack
announced his determination to go
west and become a ranchman.
: Mrs. Carmody was in despair, and
Miss Kingsbury was both miffed and
disappointed. But Jack comforted his
mother by reminding her of His reso
lution not to devote himself to any
girl of whom she would not approve
and to return before the end of the
year and "fix it up" with Gwendolin.
"You see, mother," he said, "where a
man thinks of marrying a girl he
should be sure she is going to be con
stant. If Gwen is fancy free, except
for me, when I come back I'll lead
her to the altar and you can give us
a bang-up wedding."
Jack had no sooner got settled as a
ranchman than, cantering along a
road, he met a little greaser girl can
tering in an opposite direction. She
was about sixteen years old and pret
ty. When she came to be twenty-five
she would probably be a hag, but
beauty is not what it will be, but what
it is. Her costume was tawdry, but
calculated to catch an eye that had
begun already to miss seeing feminine
apparel. Jack doffed his hat and
joined the greaBer girl.
Unfortunatelyor fortunately, ai tha
case may be7the greaser" glFT Bad-a
greaser lover. Nevertheless month by
month Jack became more and more
enraptured with her, and the greaser
lover became more and more danger
ous so far as Jack was concerned.
The girl was really true to the man of
her own class, but her parents did not
propose that she should throw away
the chance of a lifetime and insisted
that she should throw over the man
of her choice for a gentleman and a
In November Jack wrote a letter of
twelve pages to his mother, stating
that he was about to marry the daugh
ter of a Spanish grandee and explain
ing in detail why the match was a
very advantageous one for him. The
missive threw his mother Into a fever,
but she wisely said nothing about the
matter to Miss Kingsbury.
The next letter Mrs. Carmody re-
ceived from her son stated that the
match with the Spanish girl was off
and he would be at home by the end
of the year.
Something had intervened. It was
this: One morning the greaser lover
met Jack riding with the "daughter
of the Spanish grandee." Love and
jealously long pent up burst their
bounds, and the greaser opened Are
on Jack. Jack drew and wounded the
greaser, whereupon the girl pulled a
pistol from her holster and opened fire
on Jack. In the scrimmage all three
were wounded, though none of them
dangerously. Since the girl preferred
the greaser Jack was disenthralled.
Jack arrived at home on New Year's
eve, went to bed at 10 o'clock and
woke up the next morning at 7. His
arm was in a sling and a scalp wound
was bandaged. He made the follow-.
"I solemnly resolve that I will today
propose to Gwendolin Kingsbury and
that if she accepts me I will ask
mother to lock me up till we are
He kept the first part of this reso
lution, and since his mother watched
him carefully till the wedding the
second was not necessary.
