We arc all to much given to the idea that a
New Year's resolution should be a 'swearing off'
rather than a 'swearing on' that we should give
up something we have, rather than acquiring
something wc have not.
Most New Year's resolutions contemplate
things ethical or moral. Why not things mater
ial? Why not reiolvc to avail ourselves of mure
of the good things of life?
Wc arc living in the most prosperous country
on earth, and wc shall have only ourselves 'to
blame if we fail to take advantage of the many
good things designed to add to our material
comfort and human happiness.
Let your first New Year's resolution be to
purchase the household articles that you have
A South Bend Range will make cooking and
baking a pleasure. Come in and see it.
Everything that is usually found in a first class
hardware store Is included in our stock.

For sevcr.-.l minute?! she at In deep
thought, trying to devise a means of
evading the lsm, but could not arrive
at any definite com fusion. Finally a
bright thought oc.urrcd to her she
would call Dolt Inio conference. Rob
ert Leylnuil was Marian's devoted suit
or, and she had giv.it confidence In his
superior Judgment. She felt certain
Dob would find the right solution.
So that evening when he called Ma
rian explained the situation to him.
"You see," she begun, "she has .been
In boarding school th. past year, and
on her way home wishes to spend
some time w'Ui u. Of course. It's
Impossible, now that mother Is away,
because I cannot do the cooking good
ness knows, I find It hard ennii'.-h to
get along alone, to .say nothing of en
tertaining." "Well, It Isn't so had," Dob re
marked, after listening to Marian's
Innumerable excuses. "And I see noth
ing for you to do hut have her come.
1 think you can manage the cooking
somehow, and I'll promise to do the
"Entertaining!" Marian ejaculated.
"Oh. Hob, If you could see her."
Dob could not refrain from smiling
nt Marian's ihwcrlptlon of her "coun
try .cousin." Fortunately, however,
his generous nature always guided htm
along the right lines, and he finally
convinced her that there was no al
ternative other than the one of accept
ing the Inevitable.
"Very well, Dob, but remember your
part of the agreement," Marian con
cluded. "Vint are to do the entertain
ing." "Agreed," Hot) replied. "We'll show
nor a goon time, even It slie Is as
homely as a hedge fence. Leave It to
me I'll do the honors,"
Accordingly all arrangements were
iniide for the coining of Flora Winston,
the aforesaid "country cousin." Marian
declared that she was entirely too busy
to take the time and go and meet her,
so the task fell to Dob.
Now, to be sent to meet a girl you
have never seen Is not altogether easy.
Starting off In his little roadster, how
ever. Dob met the situation with Ids
usual calm demeanor.
Upon reaching the station he learned
thut the train had just arrived, so he
lost no time In beginning his search.
He eagerly scanned the faces of what
seemed to be hundreds of girls, but
saw none answering the description of
Flora. A trim figure at ll'ie extreme
end of the platform was Dob's last
hope. "Surely that must be she," he
thought, hut closer inspection revealed
a wealth of beautiful golden hair, a
perfect nose and not the slightest trace
of a freckle. He was about to depart,
when, to his complete surprise, the
dainty bit of femininity lie had been
scrutinizing, timidly approaching him,
Inquired If he could direct her to the
Carew home. "Why, you're the very
person I've been looking for!" Bob
It was not strange that Dob failed
to recognize Flora Winston, for time
had worked a marvelous transforma
tion in the little "country cousin."
Happy were the days for Flora
which followed. A series of tennis,
golf and canoeing served to while away
the Idle hours, and Dob, In the rolo
of entertainer, played bis part to per
fection. The climax was finally reached one
day when Dob and Flora were nntor- (
lug together, leaving Mi rl"'i t enter
tain herself ns be t '.c could. She bad
reached the height of her endurance,
and determined to give vent to her
feelings. Fpon returning Flora looked
unite charming, began to elaborate
on Dob's tine qualities, ami his very
courteous treatment of her, wholly un
aware of the approaching storm.
Every word was a dagger in Marian's
heart, and she promptly expressed her
opinion on the subject, which was
anything but a favorable one.
"Ob, Pin so sorry," pleaded Flora. "I
would not for the world have come
between you. I will leave at once,
never to see him again, although It
will menu a great sacrltlce to me."
It was not until ufter Flora had
gout; and Marian was alone that she
fully realized all that had happened.
Meanwhile, several hours later, ns
Flora was quickening her pace down
the driveway, she stopped short at
the appearance of a familiar face.
"Oh, Dob !" she exclaimed, "you're the
very person I'm trying to avoid." Dob
looked mystified. "Dut I am glad
to have this opportunity to explain,"'
she continued. "I never realized what
Marian meant to you." Dut that was
as far as she got. "She never meant
anything to me compared to you," Dob
Interposed. "And you're not going' off
