How Husband Can Even Scored Mf»h
I>oew your wife give you Christmas
‘gifts” such as vacuum cleaners, elec,
trie irons, dining room' curtains, and
so forth?
Wives do that sort of thing, yotj
know, seme of. them even charge the
gifts to the husbands' accounts.
Yet, history does not record a hus
band hardy enough to retaliate by
presenting hits better half with n hu

She'll be overjoyed, of i-ourse; inch
dentally, youll get lots of pleasure
and comfort out of it yourself.
But be sure to pick a car that is
1 to steer, simple to control, and
above all. one with positive braking—
•because, to maintain (teace, you will
have to let.the wife drive the ear

Blinded By Booze Found at a Big
St.inly County Heralil.
| That even the dumb annuals are '
! opi>csed to the enforcement of the
Volstead Law, nems established by a
tale which Col. George Reynolds wats
telling to the Xew*-Herald reporter,
ahd a number of others, thin morn
ing. Col-Reynolds had just returned
from a visit to his brother-in-law,
Mr. Clem Dowd, whose homo is
located in Montgomery county, near
Candor, the peach town- The story
goes somewhat along this line: Sev
eral nights ago tthe herd of cattle
ranging in Mr. Dowd's large pasture
failed to come up, as was the usudl
. custom. Mr. Dowd thought strange
of it but made 110 si>eeial investiga
tiion. I.ate in the afternoon of the
next day the herd, wabbled up the
'lane and into the bam yard. Mr.
Dowd noticed that they looked
“down in the mouth" apd - ’ seemed
just about "petered out;** Closer fe»-
vrstigation disclosed that one of the
-cows was blind as a bat. However,
the cattle soon recovered from their
apparent drowsiness. A night or two
later, they again failed to come up.
As was the case the time before,
they cume sneaking in late the fol
lowing afternoon.* Mr. Dowd saw
aotlier cow w*» blind and that those
having their little bit of vision left,
“looked like they didn’t give a rap.
The owner of the pasture and the
herd of cattle, decided the time had
come .for him to investigate the con
duct of his cows, so he carefully sur

veyed the territory embracO! in hie
large posture, and found a big sulL (
| A drain from it emptied in to a ]
pool.* The tracks of the cows showed i 1
that they had been imbibing from the i ]
“fountain of youth,” and that ex- 'i
'plained the whole situation. The next \ 1
day the still was moved, and three ]
days Inter the dry officers visited !i
that, territory and got the still. Mr. \ 1
Dowd’s two cows are still bliind and 1 1
the others "don’t feel like anything '
much,” since their long debauch. i 1
“It seems to effect cows about the e
same as it does men. They just will
stay out ,at night where they drink 5
it,” says Col. Reynolds. jj
Two Men Who Cannot Help. *
Dearborn Weekly.
Mr. Wiggam says that in the pres
ent world crisis there are two types '•
of men who cennot help very much. *
One is the optimist who believes ;
that you can take a sow's ear and *
make it into a silk purse by deep. =
The other type is 'tne pessimist,! f
"tio, confronted with a choice of twoj !
evils, takes them both.
Os the two, however, the pessimist, >
not without advantage. He walks |j
cautiously at least, and with his eyes |
open. He at least asks questions, jj
He may be a pessimist but he is *
an inquiring pessimist. An inquir- I
ing mind is a safer mind to follow j
than a Blind that accepts everything. I
with a gulp and a smile. j ?
The surprises and dnwppouitnients "
in store for the optimist are usually '
very sad. Hut the surprises and dis
appointments of the pessimist are al- i j
ways good and glad.
