Sargent & Co "Makers of Famous Sargent Feeds" similar tales found in the newspapers over the years, but without that little out-of-the-ordinary louch that made them newsworthy. There's not a word of truth in any one of them. Five years ago, Mrs Jerimiah McGillicuddy was working in her garden, weeding the carrots. She glanced down at her hand, and found much to her alarm, that the stone from her engagement ring had come loose and dropped out. The diamond, a gift from the'late, Mr McGillicuddy, had great sentimental value. Mrs McGillicuddy searched the garden high and low, called in her neighbors to join in the hunt, but the stone couldn't be found. Tearfully, she resigned herself that it was gone forever. Last week, Mrs McGillicuddy was agai working in her garden. The sun light glinted on a small round bb ject. She picked it up, thinkin it was a piece of cinder. It was Jasper Q. Hobb, President o the Hobb Knob Company, wa interviewed yesterday in his ex ecutive suite of offices. M Hobb, reportedly worth $69,000, 000 was born in a log cabin educated in the school of hare knocks and began working at a very tender age. In speaking of lis phenomenal rise to his present success, Mr Hobb said, "I ilways put in a twenty hour day THESJ& WOMEN! By d'AIessio "Daughter, tell him I'm goytig home. I want Jo see him fell out of thfc hammock!" vhen I first started making knobs. When I came here in 1902 I made a dollar a week and I saved seventy-five cents of it. I kept on working'hard, my paycheck increased and I always salted away part of it. By the time I was forty, I owned the whole company right down to the very last knob." "Then we may say to the Youth of America that honesty, hard work and thrift are the secrets of your success?", we asked. "Yes sir! You can go ahead and say that!", replied the Knob tycoon, patting his corporation. "And then too, I married the boss' daughter, he died when I was forty and she inherited $68,999,900.25!" * * * Lord Chumley Wellington Smythe was one of Britains' most intrepid and fearless explorers and big game hunters. Many years ago on a safari to darkest Africa, Lord Wellington-Symthe's party came upon a magnificent young lion which they had been stalking for days. Lord Wellington-Smythe took careful aim with his trusty blunderbuss, the lion turned as if to charge, but the intrepid hunter couldn't bear to pull the trigger! For anxious though he was to bag the lion, he noticed that on the lion's paw was a horrible wound caused by a thorn from the Whorly-Burley bush. Lord Wellington-Smythe, throw down his gun, spoke reassuringly to the animal, strode toward him and rembved the offending thorn. The beast purred his thanks and the hind quarters of the animal, tail wagging was .seen disappearing into the jungle. Years later, Lord Chumley Wellington-Smythe was again magnificent old lion was sightet by the party and Lord Welling ton-Smythe was again about t pull the trigger. Again he stop ped short. "By Jove!", said th intrepid hunter, "That's the sam beast I took the thorn from bacl in 1896!" The lion purred re assuringly and an expression o recognition crossed his noble brow. The hunter threw down his gun and strode fearlessly towarc the lion. The last -anyone ever saw of Lord Wellington-Smythe was his hind quarters protruding from the lion's mouth as that magnificent beast, tail wagging, disappeared into the jungle. • • '• Herkimer and Hortense were newly-weds. They had a rose and nortga'ge covered cottage, Horense's, .trousseau was wearing licely, her cooking was improv- ng and Herkimer was doing real well down at the vinegar works tfhere he was employed. The only thing that could possibly lave added to their joy was a ittle, "bundle from Heaven". One vening Herkimer hurried home rom his job. He beheld the ovely vision of his bride, seated n the platform . rocker, her olden head silhouetted against he sunset. . She was knitting, nd what she was knitting was istinctly of pink and blue yarn.- Yes, darling", said Hortense, "it s really true. We are going to ave a baby. Aren't you sur- rised?" "Heck, no", said Herkimer. "I keep just as good track of those things as you do!" -,-jus— • ••'•... . Herman and Vermin were identical twins.. Their parents were killed in a tragic automobile accident when the brothers were seven and a , half months old. Herman was adopted;by a family, named Zurpckizowslobia in Flatbush, Michigan and Vermin was picked up by a tribe of gypsies, named Jones. The years passed and although Vermin was curious about his ^ost brother, all that he was ever told was Herman's name, that he lived in Michigan and that he had the left half of a strawberry mark just above his left eyebrow.

Vermin searchec >the records in all the courthouses and town halls in all the cities and towns of Michigan but he didn't find a single Zurockiszow- slobia. That is, he didn't till he came to Flatbush, Michigar. After more research, he knocked on the door of a big, brick house The man who opened it looked so much like Vermin, he thought he was looking into a mirror! With tears of joy he told his story. When he finished, the Flatbush resident said, "Zurock- iszowslobia? That's my name, alright but I think it's Sam's kid you're looking for. They moved away from here ten years ago. No relation. That mark I got dn my eyebrow? That's a wart."'... r I received a telephone call from Phyllis Bray yesterday and^ she said, "As long as you aren't gong to print recipes for a \^hile, why don't you publish recipes for dees to keep the kids busy/these ast few weeks before school tarts."
