YOU CAN SAVE MONEY BY BUYING HERE NOW I By M. QUAD. Copyright. 1909. by T. C. MoClure. Farmer Jepson, widower, lived four miles from Akron on the country road, and Jane Schofleld. widow and farmer. lived three miles west of him on the Red Bridge road. They had lived thus for five years and only knew each other by name. The five years might have become twenty had not an old lop horned cow stepped In to give the parties an introduction. The cow was owned by the widow.' Besides being lop horned she was bob tailed, wild eyed and had various bad habits, one of which was jumping six rail fences and wandering about nights. These promenades sometimes led her miles away and into strange pastures. The first time Farmer Jep son saw her she was in the midst of his cornfield and had cleared about half an acre of the juicy stalks. He was a good man. but he swore at her and called her names. .He also tried his best to kill her on the spot. A week later the cow called again to see how the corn was coming on, and after half killing her the farmer sent word that if she was not kept at home he would sue her owner for damages. "And who is Farmer Jepson that talks so big, I'd like to know!" ex claimed the widow as she got the mes sage by a hired man. "If he thinks he's the biggest toad in the puddle let him go right ahead and sue. Two can play at that game. I'm not allowing my live stock to bother my neighbors. but I'm not going to sit up every night in the week to see that that old cow don't get out. You go back and tell him that I'm not afraid of any ten men like him." "Oh, she ain't, -hey!" exclaimed, the farmer when the hired man had re turned with the word. ' "Waal, we'll see about that. I'm no hand to cpm plain of my neighbors, but I'm not going to have their cows in my corn and then take Sass to boot. If that old critter of a cow steps hoof on my land again there'll be a lawsuit to make things rumble." The cow didn't hurry matters any. She waited until Mr. Jepson had trans planted, his- cabbage plants and they had got fairly growing, and then she called one night and helped herself to 250 of them, and two days later the widow learned that suit had been com menced by Farmer Jepson to recover $250 damages. "So he's sued me, has he?" observed the widow, as she doubled up her fists and fire came to her eyes. "We'll, we'll see who comes out ahead!" , Plaintiff and defendant each secured a la wyer, and of course each attorney assured his client that he. bad the.besfc kind of a ' case . and was sure to win. AftertwQ ;Ai:ox.14.thre.adjounvM-- ments the case came to trial, and f was in the courtroom that plaintiff and- defendant 1 first saw' each other. Both were surprised, and both said something to themselves.; What the farmer said was: "Waal, by thunder! I expected to see a fat and homely old two fisted wld- der. and 1 find her a good looking lit tle bit of a female who ought to be sitting on a hushand's knee. Wish I'd seen her before I begun this suit." "Lands o' massy, but he hain't no mean looking man!" exclaimed the widow after a look at the farmer. "Why, they said he was a big boss and bluffer and wanted to bulldoze me 'cause I'm all alone in the world. Say. now, but they are all wrong. He hain't the kind to bluff and pitch in. Wish he'd have come to see me about the old cow. If he had I'd have chained her up. Wonder how hard he'll swear agin me!" . She was soon v to know. The plain tiff's lawyer in opening the case said it was an aggravated case of trespass and damage and that the sum men tioned wasn't really half what they should have sued for. Then he went -on to tell of what a defiant woman the :defendant was and wound up by stat ing his hopes that the jury would ren der a verdict without leaving the box. .Then the plaintiff was called to the 'witness chair, and, to the surprise of the widow and the disgust of his law yer, he said he had forgotten the mes sage the woman returned to him. He jfollowed that up by declaring that his feelings had simply been shocked and that he had fully recovered from the shock in a minute, and a. half. As to the j, corn and cabbage, perhaps $10 would pay the bill. " "You jackass, but you have lost your 'Case!" hissed his lawyer as the witness stepped down with a smile in the di- j jecuon-. or tne wiaow, woose lawyer was whispering to her: 1 "Now. you get up there and give us isome hot talk and your case is won. There was no hot talk from the wid ow. On the contrary,, she ooed like a dove." She dmtttted o th4 ownership of the' umping;"prefiatory cow, but was quite "'"willing to" payreasonable damages.
