Advertisement From where I sit... 6 Joe Marsh Ben's Bride Gets Chicken hearted Ben Ryder was mighty proud of his young bride when she offered to care for his new flock of baby chicks. "Just like a mother with her brood," he boasts. Then Came market time for f ry- ersf-and the crisis ! Sue simply •wouldn't let Ben near her chickens with an axe. She'd raised them as babes . . . she'd named them . . . they were her very own ! Ben poured himself a glass of beer, to think things over sensibly. He hated to lose the price on fryers ...but he figured Sue had put up with his peculiarities, he guessed he could put up with her fondness for the chickens. So now Ben has the nicest brood of laying hens in town, and from where I sit, one of the most successful marriages, too. All because he "livcd-and-let-live"—literally. And whenever he wants fried chicken, ho takes his bride over to Andy's Garden Tavern for a crisp wing and a glass of beer.
