She ulanced down at her hand, and found much lo her alarm, that the stone from her engagement nn.i! had come loose and dropped out. The diamond, a gift from the late. Mr MeGillicuddy, had groat sentimental value. Mrs McGillicuddy searched the garden high and low, called in her neighbors to join in the hunt, but Hie stone couldn't be found. Tearfully, she resigned herself that it was gone forever. Last week, Mrs MeGillicuddy was again working in her garden. The sunlight glinted on a small round object. She picked it up, thinking it was a piece of cinder. It was. • • • Jasper Q. Hobb, President of the Mob Ii Knob Company, was interviewed yesterday in iiis executive suite of offices. Mr Hobb. reportedly worth $69,000,000 was born in a log cabin, educated in the school of hard knocks and began working at a very tender age. In speaking of his-phenomenal rise to his present success, Mr Hobb said, "I always put in a twenty hour day .when I first started making knobs. When I came here in H102 I made a dollar a week and 1 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 mar- ie d the boss' daughter, he died when I was forty and she inherited $08.999,900.25!" * - * * Lord Chumley Wellington - Smytlie 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 intn-pid hunter couldn't bear to pull the trigger! For anxious though he was to bag the lion, lie noticed that on the lion's paw was a horrible wound caused by a thorn from the Whorly-Burley bush. Lord Wellington-Smythe, threw down his gun, spoke reassuringly to the animal, strode toward him and removed the offending thorn. The beast purred hi-; thanks and the hind quarters of the animal, tail wagging was seen disappearing into the jungle. Years later, Lord Chumley Wi'llington-Smythe was again hunting in darkest Africa. A THESE WOMEN! "D«u(Ktor, lell Sim I'm going home. 1 want lo sec him fall out of the hammock!" magnificent old lion was sighted by the party and Lord Wellington-Smythe was again about to pull the trigger. Again he stopped short. "By Jove!", said the intrepid hunter, "That's the same beast I took the thorn from back in 1896!" The lion purred reassuringly and an expression of recognition crossed his noble brow. The hunter threw down his gun and strode fearlessly toward 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 mortgage covered cottage, Horlense's trousseau was wearing nicely, her cooking was improving and Herkimer was doing real well down at the vinegar works where he was employed. The only thing that could possibly have added to their joy was a little, "bundle from Heaven". One evening Herkimer hurried home from his job. He beheld the lovely vision of his bride, seated in the platform rocker, her golden head silhouetted against the sunset. She was knitting, and what she was knitting was distinctly of pink and blue yarn. "Yes. darling", said Hortense, "it is really true. We are going to have a baby. Aren't you surprised?" "Heck, no", said Herkimer. "I keep just as good track of those things as you do!" .;,.,.,' • • * 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 lost 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 had the right half of the strawberry mark just above his own eyebrow. One year, the fortune telling business in which Vermin was engaged was a little slow so ho decided to go to Michigan to look up his brother. Vermin searched the records in all the courthouses and town halls in all the cities and towns of Michigan but he •didn't find a single' Zurockis/.ow- slobia. That is, he didn't till he came to Flalbush, Michigar.. After more research, he knocked on the door of a big, brick house. The man who opened it looked si i 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- is/.owslobia? 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 on my eyebrow? That's a wart." • » • I received a telephone call from Phyllis Bray yesterday and she said, "As lung as you aren't, going to print recipes for a while, why don't you publish recipes for ideas to keep the kids busy these last few weeks before school starts." She contributed the following: "Take 1 broomstick. 1 old net curtain and 1 were coat- hanger, fashion into a net and let the children use it for a butterfly catcher." Phyllis says her youngsters have caught several butterflys out by the apple tree and they put them in jars to observe. When they get to the stage where they are interested in mounting them, the Doctor is going to show them how to pierce the. butterfly's head with a 'needle, painlessly killing them and preserving them intact. Many mothers have been making homo- made clay to keep the kids busy, and I'd welcome any other ideas you happen to have. The kids at our house are driving me wild, too. And don't forget to send in your recipes to the U.D.M.'s t'ooo contest. —GRACE. LINGUIST Auto salesman John Cornish of Coon Rapids was called into service as a translator when the Russian dele-gat ion visited Iowa recently. While in the Army intelligence service during the war, he spent a year learning the Russian language. WANT ADS BRING RESULTS wanna see some good Square Dancin'?
