Some of it finds a place in the

which one can depend to win this dis

example of the printing art. Every
business man desires that his printing

AT MODERATE PHCES
Grlmmlck bcKnn awny fonclc in Sop
tcmbor to boast to IiIh frlcmla about!
tho oysters. It was so hot that ha
could scarcely ralso a flicker of In
terest by relating how Albert Mac-,
Shano, who had moved to Texas, was
Koing to sh!i him sonio gulf oysters,
during tho winter. '
"They're, oysters that aro oysters!",
Grlmmlck always added. "None- of
your measly little eastern thliu"), but
blf,'. fat ones, tho size of a saucer.
And flavor! Say, If you haven't over
eaten a Bulf oyster you don't knowj
,whnt you're talking about! They" '
"Lot's go and got something cold to
drink," tho person to whom (iiimnilclc
'wns talking would Interject ubout here,
'taking off his Panama hat to mop his,
Later In the fall peoplo began to be
tray an Interest In Grlmmlck's oysters.
They listened and they heard so much
'nbout those glorified bivalves that most
of them would havo recognized tho
barrel on sight. No matter how dis
guised, It would have been impossible
for that barrel to deceive tho cyc of
Grlmmlck's friends.. Persons of deep
designs brought Grlmmlck now recipes
for cooking oysters nnd artfully , I
showed him their wholehearted disln-
terestcdness. Xot that they -expected
to get any of tho oysters, but natural- j
ly they took a neighborly Interest. It, 1
might be a big barrel. 1
Even Grlmmlck when ho first gazed
upon It was a trifle appalled at tho
slzo of tho barrel. MacShano must
havo misunderstood and sent him a
young hogshead. Or clso tho crop of
gulf oysters wns unusually largo.
"Ileauties!" cried Grlmmlck when
ho got the barrel open. "I can scarce
ly wait to get at them!"
Tho Grlmmlck family had raw oys
ters and oysters grilled that night for
dinner and all next day Grlmmlck
mado a nulsanco of himself telling
every ono how good thoy were. Ho
issued no general invitations, how
over, for people to run In nnd tako
homo a pailful of tho gulf treasures.
Consequently, comments were bitter
on his trail.
"Selfish brute!" was the universal
'opinion. "It's as bad as though ho
owned an automobile and never took
any ono out for n ride!"
It really Is amazing how far oysters
will go. After tho Grimmicks had en
Joyed oysters stowed, Hcalloped,
panned and fried to their hearts' con
tent they saw no appreciable shrink
ing of tho barrel's contents. Thero
were just about as many oysters as
Grlmmlck said ho thought he'd tako
Bomo down to the ofllco for his part
ner. Mrs. Grlmmlck said that as
she was going over to Sister Nells'
that day she might as -well tako somo
nlong. The next dny she carried somo
across to tho neighbors on either sldo
of them. That evening Grlmmlck sur
veyed tho scalloped oysters set beforo
him nnd frowned slightly. Uo said
they looked fine, but ho believed if
JItirv would fry him some of tho
brcnkfaFt bacon he'd rather havo it.
The following morn'mi hn said he
thought It was a inlstako not to pharo
their good fortune with their fr'ow'i
ttnd that lie would ?peak to Peekma'i
nnd Dandle nnd Hueklo on tho tialu
end toll thorn to Btop by that nlsht
on their way home nnd get some.
Tho father turned warm just then.
"It's a shame to waste those oysters,"
Grlmmlck said when ho saw tho mer
cury in tho outside thermometer
standing at IS decrees. "I should
think you would remember some of
your friends to whom gulf oysters
would be u real treat!"
"Why. I havo been giving them
around," confessed Mra. Grlmmlck.
"Somehow, that barrel's terrlblo hard
In another week Grlmmlck was ped
dling oysters frantically. Tho neigh
bors' dogs feasted on them nnd all
tho cats for blocks about congregated
dnlly on Grlmmlck's back steps be
cnuso tho cook fed them freely on'
oysters. Presently whenever Grlm

Mrs. Grlmmlck, flvo minutes after
taking a quart or so over to tho next
door neighbor, saw the mnld march
out to tho garbago can and empty out
tho gift. It then dawned on her that
It was tho fifth tlmo In a week Bho ,
had bobtowed oysters on that family. I
Still, sho felt Irritated. Further, tho
more sight of tho barrel Irritated hor,
for a good ninuy oysters remained.
Itnther fearfully, sho served oysters '
that night at dinner. It was (ho third
tlmo that wcok. Grimmlok exploded
and aroe from his ohnlr and heat his
fll upon th'i table. He g'U e orders that

pl.ico oysters upon hi.i table aa'n.
Then, calling for tho spade and an ax,
ho proceeded to the iir.ck yard. Alter
excavating a large hole ho burled tho
rest of tho oysters and chopped up
the barrel for kindling.
"Theie!" Grlmmlck Eald cxultlnsly
as he stalked Into tho liouso
on your things nnd we'll go downtown
and get an honest beefsteak!"

m 1. You have no right to form a good opinion
of a rascal whether in or out of tne church.
2. It is unfair to judge Christianity by those
who misrepresent it.
