Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 14, 1915, Lethbridge, Alberta I THMSDAY, JANUARY 14, 1915 fHE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD PAGE SEV�;z^ Stung Both Ways TlifMU^iOtt jPfoircdi to Btt die ''Cbi^" Fnt and Luk Thouipgon h�a a great llklof tot laivft ruga, and during tli� flTe ypnri be hai bsen married has Indulged hit atondneu tq tbe extent of (our fine OCbtvaa, Mcli of Wblch la a treaaura la lUMf and a �ourc* of daUgkt In tha jS^kompaM hoiiaahptd.

Thompaon reiignedly, and Thompaoii, bring to make the beat of a bad eUp, told her without tremor, "Only 960. dear." In reality be had paid fSO for the rug, whloh was one that would retail for about |1�0.' "Sixty . dollars," e^eed his wife. "Sixty I doltara! Why, Leonard Thompaon, dd'yon'mean'to tellme that you paid $60 tor that mgT Why, goodneaa �ne, this mg I saw down town la much handsomer than thia, and do you know what thejr aak for It? Only |60. Only 960," liha repicBted, "and. I .would sooner haye It than two like this one, and. besidea, the iwttem of this one la not pretty at all; It's, too shallow and It looks put of. place alongalde the rich colors of eiur other .Khlraa. I do wish you bad said' aoinethlng to me about tt before yen went and paid out MO tar i rug i wonldn't gl^ve |40 for." Thus matters stood, and Thompaon felt bo'bad about It that he told "the hunch^?. the whale'Btory nest day at iunsh. When he got home that night Ua �Ue waa at the door watting for him. and ^e daneed hire gleefully Into tha parlor and ioyfuUr pointed to the place where, on the prnrlona araalng; the dlaappoinUng Kbiya lay. There waa ho rag there, and Thompson stammerad out: "Wh-wher�-r�h�t rSid you do with It? Where has It goneT" For aaswar his wife shook a handle of bills In front of htm and than anuggllng np closely to him oooad: "Klaa your litUe wlfey, Lenhle dear, because she eertalnly la a bright little bu^naaa woman." Thompson did aa he waa bid and then be Inquired what It waa all about and she told him this: "Tbla aftameen, about flve a'eleek, SI man who said he waa a dealer la new and Beeond-band rugs, called hare and wanted te know If I wMted to buy a alee new rug, or If I had any rugs I wanted to exohange or aelV "I thought this might be a good chance to get rid of that Khlra yon got from Tom flawaid, so I showed tt to the man. "He looked at it rather donbtfslly for a minute or two, than aakad me bow muoh I wanted for It ''-'I told' htm |7S, b�t he gare an amused laugh, and, with a ahake of his head, aald:. TU glya you $60 for It, lady, and that'a about $10 more than le is worth.' I finally got your $(0 baiak, and here It la. "Now, don't yon think that waa rath-�r a\bleTer piece ot business for your litUe wife to do, all by herself?" Thompaon ^admitted feebly that she certainly waa a oleyer little trader, but inwardly he groaned aa he thought �f the 10 lood, hard-earned dellara be had loat en the transaction^ and Uien to cap H all, his wife added: "And now fweonardl I am going down to buy that perfect lote of a rug I saw far |I0 and with the other tlO rm going to buy a alee little erery-day hat far myself, mayn't I?" And Thempsea dasedly aald she might. Next day at Innoheen Barlow said to the bunch: "Say, fellows, to-morrow's my birthday and I propose that reu all help me celebrate." Next night they met and tha dinner was a great snooeaa. Barlow, aa host, Insisted that every man meet "sing a ong or tell.a Btory." Thompson's turn to do a stunt came, and as he wae feeling ^ppy as a re-anlt of a few warming drlaka. ha decided that the beet story he 'eonld tell would be the joke on hlmaelt about tl|� way his wife soM the rag. mid he told it. i There never was aa after dinner �tery told hi this gay eld world that was received with the tnanltaemi ap-planae that .graeted Thompaaa's.
