How the Blgsbjr'g Found a House.
. "Oh, John!" it was all she could ay, a
ah sank Into a chair with a tired, won .
rled look on her fac.
"Well, dear, did you find a house that ...
" suited you?" asked Mr. Blgsby.
"No. and I ddn't uppoe I ever will." ha.
... "Now, If you would only let m i ."
"John Blgsby 1 If you say another worij
"about looking for a, houa yourself. I'll- is
well, I don't know what I'll do, but It
r will 'b something terrible. Toil know .that )
, ,Jt' not a man's place to look for the house
, because he don't know what to conlder"
- -After thl sh politely borrowed his "Be" .
vor the rest of the evening, and began
. 'reading the "for rent" ads, clipping all '
' those which Seemed suitable. Next evening
when he came home from his office he
found her lying on th couch, sobbing bit-
"Well. well, what's th troubl with my
little honey? Won't you Just stop crying
Jong enough to tsll me what' happened?"
, . he asked, a he kissed her tear-stained
"O John," sh said, between ob. - -"I
.. found a house I liked so well,' and "the
. little girl didn't know, I guess, 'cause her
mother said It was rented." Here a fresh
fountain of tear overflowed' and all sh
could do wa hand him a dirty, crumpled
piece of paper which she had been holding'
. . in her tWhtly closed lltti fist.' "
' - ' It proved to be the ad printed above. .
1 (M, Blgsby glanced hastily at It and then '
settled back In his ebalr and laughed until
ii the tears streamed down his cheeks.
' ' "This Is too good to be true why dearie,
. . V rented thl house two weeks ago." ,
His young wife sat up In genuine -1
tonlshment- "Why. John, do you mean .
I wish you would kindly explain yourself,"- '
, he finished, sarcastically.
"Weil, you ee It wa thl way," h said.
' checking his unseasonable merriment, "I
. saw this ad In Th Bee' the night w
t arrived ber aftr our vacation. It seemed
' to be in p.ulte a good location and, after
eelng It, I ranted It. I meant to tell you
om time ago, but you wouldn't let m
. . bav a chanoa."
Next day their furnltur was taken out '
of storage and it wasn't long until thy ,
were comfortably settled.
"I guess It's a man's place to find th
ou after all," h confessed.
