Benefit Hydetown Vol. F. D. Ginny had left her handbae on the wooden bench beside her io hold a scat. I approached and said. "Excuse me. miss. Is this seat taken?" "Yes." a voice said quickly. It was my first sight of Harriet Perkins, and I was surprised by what I saw I had expected a tiny, brit'le woman, but Miss Hattie was ouite fat. with that shapelew. voluminous obesity which rfis- pii?cs almost all trace or the human figure. Her face was thinner than would be expected, and her nose sharp. "Aunt Haltie. I doubt If Mr. Mills is com'-?.' Ginny Perkins raid, and picked up her handbag She ?aici lo me. "We were saving lh;r real Tor a friend, but you may as well sit hert: until he omcs." I said. "Thank vou. miss" and stepped over the oench to sit beside her. A fireman appeared at my c'jnw and said. "How Tinny? Dime apiece Three for a quarter." "I'll take three." I said. I nulled out a handful ot change, paid him a quarter, and dropped the change ;n a Dile on the table. "I nc-pe 1 have some luck tonight,'' Misf Halite's thin voice said. In a whispering tone that included me. , "You'll hav* luck, Auat the girl said. "J just know you'll win that reading lamp." Oi a table ugninsi the wall the prizes were arrayed, in different categories. If you woe.a game of bingo you received a ticket. Some pri/es were awarded for one ticket, but others required two, and even three. I spotted the reading lamp in ttw threc-Ucket category. The wheel was spinning, ond I dropped a kidney bein on two of my cards on the' first number called. Miss Hattio's fingers kept rolling a bean over and over and she stared fixedly at her card. "Prclty good crowd tonight," I said conversationally. "Sh." safe 1 Miss Hattie. and Gjnny's elbow nudgeo my ribs. 1 sM silent, trying to lliink of a conversational gambit and keep track of my three cards at the same time, and suddenly Ginny called out. "Bingo!" Miss Hattie turned her h«ad quickly and said. "Oh. fine." "Nat me," said Ginny. "Him." • • a I LOOKED at my card and saw I had bingo. A "reman attendant took the card, called the numbers aloud for checking, and gave me a winner's ticket. "I only had two numbers covered." Miss Hattie said "That's lucky winning Ihe first time." "I guess this is my lucky night." 1 snid. "1 was taking a walk and saw the nrchousc all lighted up so I stopped In. Glad I did.* 1 "Selling?" "Yes." I said. "Y»5, inHred." Miss Hattie nodded, as tf she had me pigeonholed in a commonplace corner, then she said quickly. "Sh. Here we go again." We all ben! to our, cards as a fireman spun the wheel and called the numbers. This time ! kept careful track and the same card won « second time. 1 shouted, "Bingo!" Miss Hatli* Uirned her head, and the lines around nor e^es had lightened up. She shitted her talk on th« hard bench. BLYTKEVILLE Iron & Metal Co. Moullrie & R.R, Sis. Blytheville, Ark. Phone 8962 gave me another ticket. "1 never saw such luck," said Miss Hat!:e. wooden-faced. "I was about to go bingo myself." "I must have the lucky card," I said. "I won each time with the snme card." I dropped it in front of Miss IlDttie. "Want to trade?" "Oh, DO, I couldn't do that." "Go ahead," I said. "I've won twice already. That's enough for me." Miss Hattie passed her card over and took mine, saying, "Well, that's mighty nice of you. It is, indeed. You know what I'm going to do, Ginny? I'm going to make a little mark on the back of this one, so we can find it next time." She marked an X on the back of the card and reversed it hastily when the man began calling numbers again. She immediately snatched a bean and whispered excitedly. "I've got that number!" "That is the lucky card, Aunt Hattio," Ginny said. "in the N," the fireman cailed. "Number 37." Miss Hattie squealed. "X-37. J have that, too." I also had the number, and p»t down a bean. "In the N," the fireman called. "Number 96." 'N-96," Miss Haltie cried. Tv« got N-9C!" She gave me a smile. The next number was G-24, which I had, then 1-9 and 1 also had that one. Two more numbers were called before Miss Haltie put another bean ,on her card. She was exultant: she needed only ont number lo win. HE next number was B-8. 1 put a lioan on the number and saw I had a line of beans across the top of the card. I had bingo. 1 sat looking at the row of beans a> the next number was called, t.™n a friendly voice said over my shoulder, "Say, you've got bingo. Speak up." I looked up into the eyes of the fireman, sighed, and called out, "Bingo!" Miss Hattl* let a bean fall from her hand, and 1 actually heard th« sound when it struck the tablctop. It was her card I had won with, Uw card I hid tnded bar. I was t¥ to meet her eyes. 'Barbers' Clipped $40 for Clipping BILLINGS. Mont.
