I. 1823, by McClur. N.wspay.r Syndloata.)
Olive Rumball, vigorous, well-built
young man of twenty-eight, was ruddy
of cheek and bright of eye in spite of
his hours indoors as Junior member
of the law firm of Smith & Jenkins.,,
Now he was spending three weeks of
his late summer vacation at the home
of his uncle, Samuel Todd, by whom
he had been reared a man whcuu
nothing would induce to desert his
farming estate in the country for more
than a few days at a time.
"What do you say to taking in the
state fair tomorrow?" asked the
uncle over their leisurely breakfast on
Sunday. "I've arranged for my usual
exhibits apples and potatoes and so
forth. I'd like you to go along."
Clive Rumball's ruddy cheeks grew
perceptibly ruddier. He was well aware
of the fact that the state fair was
booked for the following week on
grounds just outside the state capital
In the next county. The roads and
village streets In the surrounding
country had been so placarded with
notices of the fair that only a blind
man could have remained In Ignorance
of the fact that it was to take place
and that It was to "eclipse all previous
state fairs In magnitude and splen
dor." "I'd like to go with you, uncle,"
began Clive, rather feebly. "But, of
course, I can't say I take much inter
est In that sort of thing. I " Frank
ly Clive loathed state fairs, and he had
good reason to do so.
"It's a little different in your case,"
Interrupted the uncle. "Fact Is, I'd be
disappointed If you didn't go. You see,
I am sending up an exhibit of the
Clive Rumball apples, quite a lot finer
than anything else we've ever been
able to produce larger and redder and
juicier. They are of nil odds the
finest apples of their class. It will be
a feather in your cap as well as mine,
and with the farmers all talking about
the Clive Rumball apples they will be
greatly interested to see the one for
whom they were named." The uncle
did not heed the look of protest and '
entreaty on his nephew's face. He
"Yes, It was just about twenty-three
years ago when I first perfected that
apple, and you'd Just come to live with
us. I'd been working hard trying to
get the right strain, and I'll tell you
I'd come pretty near being discouraged
more than once. You were a pretty
little boy with round, red cheeks. I
looked at the apple and I looked at
you, and it come over me in a flash.
That apple would have to be called the
Clive Rumball. I didn't know," added
the uncle with the embarrassment of
pride, "that It was going to be one of
the most famous apples in the world.
I didn't know that It was going to, as
It were, make the name of Clive Rum
Clive Rumball himself had heard
this story often enough before and he
had endured for many years the em
barrassing consciousness of bearing
the name of one of the world's most
famous varieties of apple. In school,
until the boys bad learned to know
the strength of his arm, he had been
known as "Apples," and frequently
Jesting allusions through college had
been made to his ruddy apple cheeks.
"I hope," said Clive, trying not to
show the least suggestion of his an
noyance, "I hope, uncle, that I may be
able to make the name Clive Rumball
known as something besides that of a
"Hey I" said the uncle, who had
never dreajned that the situation was
embarrassing for his nephew and not
quite understanding this protest. "Oh,
well. Don't worry about that. You'll
never lack a reputation. People will
always be glad to meet you, Just to
see what the little apple-faced boy
looks like when he has grown to be a
If the name had been anything less
usual than Clive and Rumball the task
of becoming dissociated with a fa
mous apple might have been less dif
ficult. If the world-famous apple had
been the Thomas Smith he might have
passed unnoticed as Tom Smith. But
there was no getting around Clive
RumbaU. It meant an apple and noth
ing but an apple to millions ef farmers
far and near, Just as surely as Dan
Tucker means a dance or Jenny Wren
means a bird.
The following Monday the dutiful
Clive Rumball drove over to the fair
grounds near the state capital with
his Uncle Samuel Todd. Samuel Todd
had made his smull fortune as the
conservative partner of a brokerage
office, but his hobby had always been
farming in general and apple raising
In particular, and he never felt more
at home than with a group of pro
"1 want you to meet my nephew,"
said Mr. Samuel Todd w-lth a smile
as he clapped a broad-palmed hand
on the back of a white-bearded old
farmer. "My nephew Clive Rum
ball." "That so !" exclaimed the farmer,
beaming at the nephew. "Wall, ef
you're as sound as the Civic Rumball
apple, you're all right." And be
laughed long and loud at bis own
The remark was only typical. Before
Clive and his uncle had been on the
fair grounds for a half hour Clive
Bumball had been Introduced at least
ten times to as many farmers who all
cracked some sort of Joke about the
famous apple which had been named
They had parked their car and
were directing their steps toward the
building where were exhibited various
fruits and vegetables along with a
uew and Improved Clive Rumball from
"There's my friend, Mr. Jennifer,"
said the uncle, pausing as he saw a
mun alighting from a car lu the park
ing field. He was in agitated con
versation with a young and animated
woman, so Samuel Todd did not In
terrupt. Mr. Jennifer was apparently
trying to get the young woman to
alight and the young woman was re
sisting. Clive Rumball became some
what interested. Though he caught but
a blurred outline of her face, he felt
a keen attraction. Besides, he saw that
the locks that showed beneath her lit
tle cloche were red red like burnished
copper. And Clive Rumball had u fail
ing for red-haired girls.
Presently the farmer, Mr. Jennifer,
gut out alone, sighed deeply and the
car turned while the girl at the wheel
threw Mr. Jennifer a kiss.
Mr. Jennifer caught up with Clive
and his uncle.
"Let me introduce you to my
nephew, Clive Rumball," began the
uncle, Importantly pronouncing the
name, but Mr. Jennifer was too preoc
cupied with his own affairs to hear
the rest. He merely bowed to CUve
and his uncle and said, "By heck!"
"That gal of mine," he went on.
"She's all right, but she's stubborn.
But, then, red-haired gals usually are.
All I wanted was that she should get
out and go around with me. I wanted
to Introduce her. But she hud made
up her mind she wouldn't. So she said
she'd drive around and call back for
me Instead. I've got a mighty fine
showing of carrots," he continued, ad
dressing Samuel Todd In particular.
And Clive Rumball wandered along
while the two agriculturists discussed
upples and carrots.
It was about then that Clive Rum
ball summoned couraga to slip his
moorings. Suppose you and Mr. Jen
nifer look around awhile and I'll meet
you later, say at the Judging stand at
It was agreed, and CUve Rumball,
hoping that no one would recognize In
him the godfather of the rosy-cheeked
apple bearing his name, wandered
back to the parking field. He strolled
around It, wondering whether by
chance he might find the red-haired
daughter of Jennifer. He was still
looking when a motor coming uround
the wrong direction honked violently
"Excuse me," said the driver, who
proved to be no one In the world but
Miss Jennifer. "You were with my
father when he went oft. Will you
see him again?"
"I expect to," said Clive with a
bow. "I expect to meet Mr. Jennifer
and my uncle at twelve."
"Well, will you tell father, then,
said the girl, "that I've gone. I told
him I wouldn't come, and he knows 1
hate these fuirs and why and now
I'm going. I don't know Just wdiere,
only I'm not going to hang uround this
place. And that's that."
"I suppose It is," said Clive with a
laugh. "In the meantime, why do you
hate state fairs, Miss Jennifer?"
"Why shouldn't I?" threw buck the
girl, and then fearing lest an atten
dant might find her with her car faced
the wrong way, she added : "I'll tell
you, but not here. I've got to turn.
Hop in, and I'll set you down wher
ever you are going."
Clive got In beside the girl with red
hair and, having explained that he
was going nowhere in particular but
that he had Just drifted back toward
his own car, they started out of the
grounds and along a country turnpike.
"I hate stste fairs," she explained
"because my name's Deborah Jenni
fer " She paused to see If this
brought u smile of recognition to the
face of her companion. "You are ap
parently not a farmer," she went on
"If you were you would no doubt have
made some remark about carrots and
red hair. You apparently don't know
that the Deborah Jennifer Is the most
celebrated variety of carrots In the
country maybe In the world. My
father perfected it. He named It
for me when I was a little girl be
cause I had red hair. I'd like to dye
It sometimes not that I mind being
red-haired, only I do mind the Jokes
that people crack when they know my
name is Deborah Jennifer. Honestly,
It Is enough to make ine want to get
married, Just so I could be called by
some other name." Th-jn she added
quickly, "Only, of course, 1 don't In
tend to. I don't like men and I shan't
ever be married."
"I should think," suld Clive with
a smile, "that that would be your
best way out of It. Unfortunutely my
own name Is Clive Rumball "
He got no further. "Heavens," cried
the girl. "Then you're an apple. And
I suppose people kid you about being
apple faced only of course you aren't
No," added Miss Jennifer with a twin
kle In ber bright blue eye, "I couldn't
think of marrying you even If you
wanted me to."
All of which shows that red-haired
girls are Just as apt to change their
minds as any one else, for before an
other summer had brought another
state fair every farmer's magazine
throughout the country had published
the pictures of Clive Uuinbali and his
bride, Deborah Jennifer, under u head
Ing to the effect that an apple had mar
rled a carrot.
