What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

JOB TANNER'S TIMOSINVING DINNER Sy HOPE PARING. CU can't give a Thanksgiving dinner this year, Brother Job. That's sure.\ \Can't hey? l'd like to know what's to hinder.\ Mrs. Abigail Skinner raised her hands in horror. \Now. Job, you know the Tanner Thanksgiving dinners are not- ed among our relatives. You don't mean to tell we that you'd dare to give a dinner to our family -the Tanuers- while Sally Long does your housework. The idea is outrageous.\ Mr. Tanner made no reply. For the space of two minutes silence reigned In the sitting room of the Tanner fsrm- house-a silence broken only by the ticking of the clock and the drowsy purring of the big Maltese cat as she arched her back for the slow stroking of her master's hand At last Sirs. Skinner spoke with a de- gree less than her usual assurance. \Of course I'd do most anything for you. My years of service to you have prov- ed that. Under the circumstances I am sure Mr. Skinner will consent to overseeing the preparations, I will come Monday and\ - \Oh I wouldn't think of putting you to the trouble.\ ber brother Interrupted her to say. \You tell about years of service. That's enough.\ Mrs. Skinner's thin, dark face flush- ed, and she moved uneasily in the cushioned rocker. \You'll have to have my help, Job. Sally can't cook a dinner tit to set before our family.\ \See here, Abigail.\ and into the shrewd but kindly blue eyes of Job Tanner came a look his sister under- stood, \there's no use talking about this matter. I shall give my usual Thanksgiving dinner, and I shall not need your cervices.\ Job Tanner bad never married. In his early manhood his only sister had been left a widow with • four small children. Her share of their father's \ MUT SEMI AS NY W1711.\ property was gone. so Job unhesitat- ingly offered herself and family a home For twenty years he had cared for them, educating the children and submitting to Abigail's exactions. At last the boys and girls were all settled in life. Then their mother married Mr. Skinner. She was a grasp- ing, covetous woman and upon learn- ing that her new husband was a far less wealthy man than she had sup- posed tried to retain her olden sway over her brother's domestic affairs. \I don't see my way out of It.\ Job admitted to himself. \Thanksgiving Is only ten days oft Sally's good enough in her way, but she is a poor cook and no kind of a housekeeper. , That was Abigail's „ strong point -she kept my house . well. I'd as soon have Sally's work, though, as to have Abl- gall's scolding and whining But it will never do to set company down to a Thanksgiving dinner cdoked by Sal- ly. Let pie see.\ The November sunshine lay warm - and mellow over the brown fields, heaps of russet leaves bordered the roadside, and the voices of the men at work Ins geld near by came to him on the alit air. His eyes swept the fa- . miller frindscape. Suddenly he started. \If she only would! Mary's a prime cook, and they say she is glad of a chance to earn a little money. Poor Mary! Its a shame Clemens didn't leave her enough to take care of her- self. Well, I'll go over and see her this evening.\ The Widow Clemens and Job had been schoolmates. There had been a time ' when he had hoped that they might be still more to each other, but a mis- understanding had arisen between them, and before it was explained she was the wife of Will Clemens. The door was opened by Mrs. Clem- ens herself. She was a plump little woman with soft black eyes and a sweet vele*. \Why. Job, I am glad to see you. Walk in. I'll have to give you a seat in the kitchen, as there is no Ore in the other room.\ , \How Cow you are here, Mary!\ Then he plunged at once into his trou- ble. He told of his firm determination to give his usual Thanksgiving dinner and his still firmer resolve not to ac- cept Abigail's proffered help. \I want you to come and plan it all,\ , he *Mt 311, opwitsion. nog cut hive 1 all the money pi spend and all the help you want. I don't mean that you shall work hard. Will you help we. Alpxyr A delicate pnik colored her cheek. \Mrs. Skinner -what will she say?\ \It's none of her burliness. Say yes, Mary. I'll pay you anything you like.\ She raised her head a little proudly. \Of course ' ask you no more than any one eise\.7 she began, but he broke in gladly: \Which means that you will come. Thank you Mary.\ ' All the way home Job Tanner was contrasting the cozy little house he had just left with his own spacious but Lonely abode. Meanwhile Mrs. Clemens was assuring herself that ,she was re- garded by, her late caller only in the light of a capable servant She went to her field of labor early on the Monday morning before Thanks- giving. Sally was a warm admirer of Mrs. Clemens and helped in her usual careless fashion. All things for which Mary asked were provided, even to a box of cut flowers from a neighboring city. Thanksgiving morning dawned, gray and overcast About 8 o'clock Job en- tered the house from the barn. Clemens, she said for you to come lh the dinin'• room and see how things looked,\ was Sally's greeting. When he opened the door he stood speechless. The old room was trans- formed into a bower of beauty. The bay window was filled with evergreens and adorned with yellow bhrysanthe- mums and silver leaved begonias from Mary's home. The quaint old mahog- any sideboard was filled with choice bits of china and silver, quivering molds of amber jelly, a massive sil- ver cake basket filled with slices of rich, dark fruit cake and a bowl of scarlet carnations. The long table was spread with floe linen and ornamented with smilax and roses. On a low vine draped stand between the side win- dows was a__pyrstmid of apples, oranges and bananas. \It all looks good enough to eat And so do you,\ he went on, noting her well fitting brown gingham 'dress, white apron and pink ribbon at her throat \Mary you make my home a parade. Stay here as my wife.\ She grew very pale. Twice she es- sayed to speak, but the words died on her lips. It was not until he came nearer that she found her voice. \No no. - You ask me because you are sorry for we and your home is lone- ly. I cannot be your wife on these terms.\ \I do not see why you cannot. I will be good to you. Mary.\ She smiled, although her lips quiv- ered piteously. \I know you would. Job. There is something else.\ \Not another man?' \Oh no. Please don't ask any more.\ \I have a right to know. you must tell me why you cannot be my wife.\ There was a grave dignity in his voice that she could not gainsay. She must tell him the truth. \Because I love you. .lob Tanner. Nay, do not interrupt me. You would indeed be good to me. but I know too well the result of a union where the love is all on one side, and so I will not be your wife. Now, not a word more on the subject. I have outraged my sense of womanly pride, but you made me speak.\ And before he could recover from his astonishment she had taken refuge In the kitchen. The guests began to arrive in a short time. Job had no opportunity for an- other word With Mrs. Clemens. One fact was plain to him -Mary had re- fused him. Dinner over, there was an hour of So- cial intercourse. Then the guests de- parted. When Job re-entered the house, after seeing the last load drive off, be found Sally washing the dishes. \Where is Mrs. Clemens. Sally?\ he asked. Sally paused, dishcloth in one hand and a half washed plate in the other. \Where indeed?\ He recognized the tone as one that marked the height of Sally's displeasure. \She's gone home, driv off by that sister of yournl Hump! I'd jest like to give Abigail Skinner a piece of my mind. I come right near doin' it. but Miss Clemens - the lamb -she begged me to keep still.\ A little skillful questioning put Job in possession of the facts. Mrs. Skin- ner had entered the kitchen and plain- ly expressed to Mrs. Clemens the sur- prise and indignation of the family concerning the widow's presence. \Said as bow they were all sayin' as how she was a-throwin' of herself at your head.\ Sally went on. \Mary Clemens wouldn't marry you nohow. If abe would you'd be a bigger fool than you air now not to take her.\ Job did not tarry for any more words. Pulling his hat well down over his eyes, hevened the door and set off toward tbeTletnens cottage. Upon reaching the home of Clemens be walked in without knock- ing. The lamp was lighted, and Mary was In the sitting room. She sprang up, hastily wiping her eyes. \I know all about it, Mary,\ he be- gan. \There is not a word of truth in Abigail's cruel speech. She is jealous. and, Mary, there Is something else.'' She looked at him wearily. \Please don't say anything more. After my mad words of this morning the great- est kindness you can do me is to spare we the mortification' of seeing you.\ \But it is what you call your mad words that I must speak about once. Mary,\ he said gently, yet In such a' masterful way that she could not but listen. \I've made a discovery since morning. 1 again ask you to be my wife not because I am sorry for you, not because I long for the comfort tour presence will bring into my home, but because I love yen.\ He took both her trembling hands In his firm clasp. \I've loved you all these years, MarY, but never under- atood until teday what made my life ao .11.b. the. te a real. Tbanbutt4 jug!\ And Job Tanner gathered the women he loved close in his arms. 0 0 0 0 o 0000.000 00 The following list of want ads should be read over care- fully as . - thermair suggest some- thing you want or can supply - 00o o 0000 00 00 For Sale 0 For sale at Moore ---Flour City 30 engin'e Deere Plows.
