EDITION OPENING INSTALLMENT MASON CITY IOWA FRIDAY JANUARY THIS PAPER CONSISTS Of TWO SECTIONS OHIO FLO vsiowndw w n oo er Icet at her back ihis man ami woman holy matrimony She turned her head ever so slightly and saw Joel standing straight qnd solemn at her side He was framed by the room that seemed smaller with his tall gauntness The light streaming through lace curtains lent a nobil ity to his head It pointed up the clean shabbiness of the worn car pet where so many oilier couples had stood like these two It showed the careful darning in the inen doilies on the plush chairs the lading colors of the yellowing wallpaper Janet thought This is my back ground Joel doesnt belong here I can smell bread baking Ive known that smell all my life I was brought up in a home like this and I thought that one day I would end it in just such a home But this is not for Joel Oh Lord make me a good wile the right wife for him antl is commended by Saint Paul to be honorable amone all men and therefore is not by any one to be entered intu unadvisedly or lightly Martha Colby standing at Ja nets left cleared her throat The sound in that room silent save for the soft old voice speaking so the very word husband but I oh Janet I have nothing but an uncertain future and my love to offer you I need you and I want you to marry me at once and forsaking all others Keep thee only unto her so long slowly sounded dropped her eyes harsh She As though Martha had spoken Janet protested within herself We are not entering into it light ly We loved each other from th moment we met Time doesn matter Martha thought Its the mos unadvised thing Ive ever heard of Whod ever think that those two would fall in love Janet you should have better than this A sane sweet child marrying a tranger temperamental your Scotch father think of this Martha thought little Dr MacLeod as she had been think ing of him since Janet had called her on the telephone the day be fore There had been something singing in Janets voice then Martha I want you to stand up with me tomorrow Im going to ay marry Joel Paynter Reverend Fisher is going to marry us at his K home in Chester No youre not dreaming its true Yos lies the boy I met two weeks ago but I know its right Martha Will you If any man can shnw just cause why they may not iie lawfully joined together let him now speak or else hereafter forever hold his peace the minister in toned The faintest smile played mo mentarily at the comers of Janets mouth Almost the first words Joel had said to her were Im not a mari rying man Before that he had said I dont know your name bu Ive struggled through this jam I get across to you ever since yo came in Do you care very muc for this party or will you get you things and leave with me I war to talk to you Janet had obtained her thing and when they were in the parl driving from the Taylors cockta party they hardly spoke Yet be twcen them there was a quickenc sense of understanding Joel took her sensible little ham in his big one and looked into he face Janet wished then that were a prctly face Just as sh sometimes wished that he wer tall Im a halfpint and plain she labeled herself Her five fee of small proportioned perfection and her face that was distin guished by a broad brow by deep gray eyes and a wide generou mouth It tier cheekbones wen high and her nose as Scotch a heather her soft light brown luiii broke away from its smooth tight ness to curl softly about her fore hand and checks Im not a marrying man he said suddenly and surprisingly Does it matter she said Im afraid it might he had answered That had been only a fortnight before Janet thought It cant have been so little time ago Ive lived a lifetime in these two weeks Ive known what it is to be in ove to have known the fear of losing him and to realize that I can never be happy without him ACtcra week he had said I cant stand this Janet Im not fiontg lo sec you again I love you and I want you I want you do you understand He had said other inarticulate things and because she was afraid that she could not with stand them she said she thought it best for him not to sec her again But nothing could keep Joel Paynter from Janet McLeod once he had kissed her You know how I feel about marriage he said four days later I revolt against ties I hate the whole idea possession I am depressed by as ye both shall live f will Joel said clearly Then Janet said I will Who givelh this woman Her brother Ian stepped for ward Janet raised her hand and the minister laid U in Joels The cold circlet slipped over her finger She felt far removed as the next words came to her she who wears it may abide in Thy peace Then Joels arms were around her lifting her from the floor to meet his kiss Her fur toque was knocked askew by Ted Jevers claiming first privilege of kissing the bride Mrs Fisher was talk ing to her Joel was shaking hands with the minister Martha shook confetti on her saying Itll take a week to get this stuff off but we only get mar ried a few times during the course of a lifetime Her tone was gay enough but her cheeks were wet She stroked the tiiiy mink collar of Janets new green suit Fool ishly she remembered doing some think like that to Janet 20 years before It had been an angora bonnet Mrs Fisher came in with a tray of winefilled glasses Janet stood very proudly by Joels side while they were toasted Then Joel gave her a signal and she fled with him to the borrowed roadster waiting at the door He swung off the road suddenly and quietly thc car came to a stop Well wait here back
