get it. He is the luckiest fellow
I ever saw."
After the push and jam was
over ,Jack Printer started back
to his work. But what was that?
He stooped to pick it up. "Why,
here is one of my tickets. Was
not that first number he called
"Yes," replied the linotype op-
crator, "why ?"
"Well, if that don't beat all I
ever heard of. I had the ticket,
but had dropped it in here while
fooling those those cranky old
green horns from the sticks. I'll
not work here another day."
"Come on, Jack, and let me
take you for a drive in my new
car. I want you to go with me
out to that farm and move out
soon. It is terribly disagreeable
"Well you know what you are
talking about one time. John, I
had that ticket that he called

"I didn't know it then. Some
pesky old moss backs were in
here from Frog Creek asking a
million :questions. I dropped one
of my tickets, and it %happened
to be the one he called."
"Well, I'll swan. Now is abso-

years. When I farmed, we used
"Well, here we are; you get
out and try it a round and see
if you can't do it."
Nothing seemed natural to
Jack about such a plow tool. It
went jumping and jerking the
wrong way; he did not have the
strength to master it.
He returned home that night
to tell his wife about his new
,experience. "Not talking to me
about plowing with them things.
I'd rather have old Kate and
Jude any time. Anyway, I've
been working at the printing
business for so long, I guess it
wouldn't be worth while to tear
loose now and go to loafing
around. Every thing about
farming is so different to what
it used to be."
Early the next morning, Jack
Printer was found sweeping out
the office as he whistled con-
