THE TWO WOMEN COMFORT
Whoever it was that first said
"Misery lives company," will never
have to take it back, if you would
take Mrs. Man's or Aunt Judy's
word for it Jay Bird will tell you
the same thing, for he paid a little
visit to the Man home, the next
day after the Pepper Party. You
certainly know by this time that
it is the habit of Blackie Bear
to "plan his work, and work his
plan," and he always checks up
on his "works" to see just how
his plans came through. So he
asked Jay Bird to go over and see
how Rover Dog's eyes were coming
along,- after the pepper dust had
bee been washed out. If his eyes
were not all right, he would have
Doctor Coon fix some eyewash for
them, and Who-Who Owl would
take it over that night.
Jay Bird found that Mr. Man
had gone back to town to get some
more of the things sugar, coffee
and shells that were lost oft of
the wagon yesterday. Yes, he had
gone back to town, even after tell
ing his wife that he would never
leave her again, last night when
she cried so; but first hie had gone
over to get Aunt Judy to come and
stay with Mrs. Man while he was
gone. And he learned that Mr
Man had left the gun with Mrs.
Man, so she could shoot that "Man-
as-high-as-a-house" or Blackie
Bear, or any other robber that came
fooling around her place.
And Jay Bird found that it is a
fact that misery really does love
company, and that those two good
women had a "miserably good
time" together, while they told
their troubles to each other. Yes,
they huddled up In the kitchen and
they talked and talked and talked
about the Pepper Party, and every
once in a while Mrs. Man would
crack the door open, and peep into
the yard to see if anybody had
carried the dogs away. (Yes, it
was DOGS two of them for
Aunt Judy had brough Boy Dog
along.) , But always both dogs
were sitting or lying right close to
the open door of Rover's house, so
they could jump in and slam the
door, if Blackie or the other rob
bers came in sight. That's the
real truth of the matter, for Jay
Bird heard them talking about it,
though Mrs. Man and Aunt Judy
thought they were just ready to eat
up a robber.
On any ordinary day, neither dog
would have had any such a "com
pany" dinner given him at his own
home as he got that day. Not just
scraps that were left alter the
women got through, but just as
good dinner as was on the table.
Mrs. Man and Aunt Judy thought
they deserved a good dinner for
sitting there and watching for
trouble all day, and that if trouble
honld come, thev would he better
able to fight it it they had eaten

Domestic cotton consumption es
tablished a new daily record in
November, and consumption may
go even higher in the next few
months if labor and equipment are
a good dinner.
And Jay Bird ate his own din
ner from the garden, and left,
There was nothing else to do or
see over there, so far as he could
tell, but there might be something
going on at Uncle Joe's house,
where he was all alone. That good
neighbor might be a little lone
some, with even Boy Dog gone, and
maybe Blackie would want to send
him some company, or do some
thing else for his entertainment.
You never can tell what use Black
ie will make of even the simplest
sort of news.
Jay Bird's pretty wings quit
wiggling at about eleven o clock,
and settled him by the water
trough by the well at Uncle Joe's,
where he wet his throat, and tnen
looked about. Of course Uncle
Joe ought to have been at work in
his potato patch, at that hour, but
was he? Indeed he wasn't: he
was stretched out on the bench
beside the water shelf on the porch,
where everything was shaded by
the old walnut tree, and he was
sound asleep and snoring, and the
grass in the potato patch was doing
a lot of growing.
Jay Bird thought it was too
early for Uncle Joe to be napping,
and he was certainly good for an
other hour or two of it; but it
wasn his business to do anything
more about it than to tell Blackie.
It looked a lot like sleeping on the
job, add Blackie never cared for
that sort of sleep. Uncle Joe
couldn't make crops for himself nor
Blackie, by doing that way. Se
Jay Bird was on his way to the
