"Going away for what?" Inquired
Mr. Jobson, glowering at her over the

"Why," said Mrs. Jobson, "to escape
the noise and"
"Escape nothing!" cut In Mr. Jobson
gloomily. "How you going to escape
It? Illre a balloon and escape to Spits
bergen? nike to the Mohave desert?
I'd be considerably obliged to you If
you would suggest how anybody can
get away from this durnphool Fourth
of July nonsense, madam, but you can't
do it. It's not to be done."
"Well, then." Interposed Mrs. Job
son, "It Is settled that we are not to go
away over the Fourth and that"
"It is pretty near settled, Mrs. Job
son, If I say bo," replied Mr. Jobson
"We are not only not going away,
but we are going to remain closely
bottled op in this fortress from the
beginning of the day to the end there
of. I'm going to take all of the screens
out of the windows and pull the win
dows down tight, so as to exclude as
much of the racket as possible, and
then I'm going to retire to the attic,
where I want my meals served to me t
throughout the day."
Mr. Jobson was In a pretty chipper
and cheerful frame of mind when he
woke up on Fourth of July morning.
He ate a whopping breakfast, and aft
er breakfast he sat In the front room
at the window, reading the paper and
smoking his cigar and gazing out at
the youngsters firing their crackers
"Those youngsters don't get the good
out of their firecrackers that us fel
lers used to when I was a kid," he
observed to Mrs. Jobson. "They don't
get enough noise out of 'em. And
they don't know bow to nurse and
hoard their firecrackers. Why, I'll bet
those kids never heard of shooting 'em
off under a dish pan, and"
That suggested something to Mr.
Jobson. He sneaked out the basement
way, went around the corner to a fire
works shop and presently returned
with an armful of firecrackers. Then
he slunk In the basement way and
copped out Mrs. Jobson's second best
dishpan. Then he went out again and
beckoned a bunch of the firecracker
shooting youngsters In a vacant lot.
"Hey, you fellers." he called to the
delighted boys, "come on along here
and I'll show you some shootln' of
firecrackers as is what you might call
When Mrs. Jobson went over there
an hour or so later to summon Mr. Job
son to lunch he was firing off the final

These farms join and can be had all in one deal
separately as desired.
