CIari J. liad said "jn" and the
next evening I waded into the Van
vivver mansion to drag Papa's and
Mamma's consent away from them.
So long as I played light comedy
roles I knew I was a hot favorite with
the old folks at home, but when it
came to doing a leading part and
walking off with the daughter, I be
gan to get uneasy for fear they'd
reach for the egg basket and hand me
a few unripe scrambles.
When I squeezed through the por
tiere I found the old lady and gentle
man very biisy discussing their plans
for a summer trip.
"Where are you going to spend the

"1 he bov may be suffering from

"Huh!" exclaimed Papa; "in love,
eh? That's it. When's the wedding?
who's the girl? Sorry to lose you.
John, but the best al friends must

' That cackle went right through me
and splashed on the wall behind me.
The old man was a fierce joke pusher.
"Come on now. John." he con-!
tinned: "who is she? Have you told '
'Clara? She'll be lonely, for you aro

"It was good of you, John, to come
to us with the news first Wasn't it,
.Absalom?" smiled the old lady.
Father nodded his head vigorously,
and there I sat with my mouth wide
open a regular Charlie Foolishface.
I wanted to speak, but every word In
my body was back-pedalling.
It was scandalous.
If I had realized what it meant to
go up against an unuspectlng family
council I certainly woulJ have coaxed
Clara J. to elope. Then ! could have
sent her beloved parents a postal
card, breaking the awtul news thus:
"May I have your daughter? Thanks.
I have her now. Last tag, you're It."
I began to recover consciousness

After a painful pause I opened ;ny
eyes and said, "What's the answer?"
Papa and Mamma had risen and
were giving me the look-over with a
side smile 1 couldn't quite understand.
"What's the answer?" 1 repeated,
prepared to duck and avoid a rush of
furniture to the he?d.
Papa placed Mamma's arm gently
under his own and started away.

all she had ever heard.
Marietta was to be the rnaid of
honor, but to hear her talk you'd
think she was the leading lady. That
girl had the busiest voice I ever
She certainly wa3 a hard worker
with the gab.
"Evening, ladies!" I said.
Clara J. gave me a spectral sort cf
a smile and Marietta shook her back
hair at me. then they clinched.
"llut I'm afiai.l. Marietta" Clara
J. was at the bat "that I may not

Marietta, that I had chosen the other
shade; and the train. Marietta; don't
you think two yards too long for me?
Now do tell me! I'm sure it will be.
Oh. Marietta, do you think that old
lace will be as becoming as the fresh
tulle would have been?"
"Nice evening!" I suggested, but
they had forgotten I was in the room.
"Why, Clara Jane!" gurgled the
girl with the speuJthrift tongue, "you
know that your old point will turn
all the women green with envy. I'm
sure nothing on earth could persuade
me to think of a tulle veil when I had
such perfectly exquisite lace. Now
there was Helen Duval you remem
ber when Helen was married? She
had one of these "
Then Marietta pulled the throttle
wide open and took us to Helen's
wedding and back again and all over
the place. It was cne of the longest
and noisiest journeys I ever made.
"Got any wood for me to saw?" I
interrupted after a bit. I was tircj
cf playing solitaire.
"Pardon us." said Marietta, giving
me enough eye-ice to keep me cut
ting for a month: "we are so busy!"
Then to Clara J., "what did you say.
Clara J. grabbed her cue. "Really,
now. Marietta, do you think that the
sleeves are clever? I think a frock
with toot sleeves is an abomination."
"Just think of being married in
sleeves that were not absolutely
smart!" cried Marietta.
Her voice seemed to have a high
"And the lines of the skirt," Clara
J. went on; "do you think they are
good? You know a wedding dress

know the design was good; but made
up. Marietta, do you think it will be
good mad up?"
"When do you expect to get those
glad garments cooked up?" I ven
tured; but all the wires were down in
my direction, and I got no answer.
Clara J. took out. her hammer and
began to tap the bridesmaids, while
Marietta held the anvil, so I got up
sideways and went home.
It was the most cruel game of
freeze-out I ever sat In.
All in good season the presents be
gan to show up. One evening the min
ister, who was a friend of the family,
dropped in to see if they would suit
Nearly everybody I knew had sent us
a cut-glass decanter, and be made me
rush out and sign the pledge.
With the exception of two or three
of these present, the wedding was the
happiest affair of the kind I ever at
tended. I was one of the exceptions.
When the fateful hour drew nigh
my heart crawled up in my throat and
refused to go back home. I suppose
it wanted to see the show.
As I stood near the chancel waiting
for the bride to come and get me, I
felt like a bottle of ketchup with the
cork out. It 6cemed to me that ev
erybody in the world was giving. me
the fish eye.
I couldn't remember whether I
should wear my hands in my pockets
or in my mouth, so I tried both styles.
Fresently I caught the eye of Syd
ney DeOrie, and he didn't do a thing
but throw off a grin that nearly put
me out of the wedding business.
Sydney was one cf the ushers, but
he should have been away back sit
ting down at his work in the soap
factory. He was one of the Five Lit
tle Shines who used to drop in on
Clara J. of an evening and tease her
wilh their talk. I den't know why I
ever consented to let that human po
tato salad be an usher. He couldn't
ush for sour pickles. All he could do
was to put his face where I could see
it and let tired Nature do the rest
About this time Hilly DeVries, my
best man. began to wilt I didn't
dare look nt him. but I knew that
mentally he was yelling for ice water.
Outwardly be was very nervous, and
he put in his spare time trying to
chew his necktie.
Still, the thought flashed over me
that Hilly, being a college graduate
and a football survivor, showed won
derfu! relf-control in confining him
self to a conflict between his teeth
and his necktie. It's a wonder he
didn't give the minister the low tackle
and try for a touchdown.
Then the procession came down
the aisle, and the bell rang for the

and I suppose for a moment he

thought he had me, but I fooled him.
I know it's customary for the bride
groom to get so rattled that he loses
the ring, so I wasn't taking any
chances. The day before the wedding
I bought eight rings, and when the
battle was raging I had them stored
I away in every pocket and a spare one
in each shoe.
No fumble on the ring net for me!
No matter in which direction I
dipne' I was sure to fish up a ring. 1
think I'll get this idea patented.
I Ta- n the minister made a few
cracks at us. but we called him eery
time, politely but firmly, and present
ly he handed us a card and said we
were duly elected members of the
Married People's Union.
Immediately thereafter we all went
' home in a flock of hacks to take a fall
out cf one of the finest wedding break
fasts that ever came off the griddle.
For one little moment Clara J. and
I were alone in the library.
"Did I do all right?" she asked eag
erly. "You! The limit!" 1 said. "You
looked like a queen. But, wait! Stop
the wagon! Why. bless me, in the
excitement of a quick finish nobody
had time to kiss the bride!"

What a time some poultry keepers
have trying to get rid of scaly legs
among their fowls. All kinds of "dope"
is recommended, even to catching the
hens and applying salves and other
things from one to half a dozen times.
An old can with a little kerosene in it
will do the business. A little old
grease may be added. One dipping
of the affected bird's legs in this will
end the scales.
The early hatched pullets will begin
laying eggs soon and as they are ex
'pectcd to furnish the Tor": of the
winter eggs, prepare ample quarters
for all the young stock. To prevent
crooked breast bones the young fowls
should have poles about three inches
around or flat rails or lath three or
four Inches wide.
Those who expect to make their
young chickens grow vigorously and
their hens lay well must forget that
they require an abundance of mineral
foods and supply them with all they
need. It is cheaper than any other
feeds, but just as essential.
There is no excuse for not having
perfectly well-ventilated poultry
houses because they are inexpensive
and require not much time to build
them. Warmth in the poultry houses
should be sacrificed for ventilation if
that is necessary.
The number of eggs that a goose
will lay and the fertility of those eggs
is largely determined by the care
given the breeding birds during the
winter months. If they receive prop
er care the reward of the caretaker
