Fourth Phone 8415 Koehler's Bakery 1013 CAPITOL WAY Phone 7268 Three's No Crowd • By MABEL C. STEWART "I'M a stranger, I'm a pilgrim." Grandpa | Brewstcr's voice was a little creaky these days, like his joints, but puttering around the kitchen always inspired him to song. J Jennie used to sing a lot, about to song. Jennie used to sing a lot, about different. She sang alto in the church choir before Grandpa married her, and hmg afterward. Cooking, or dusting, or ironing, Jennie was likely to be singing. The house had seemed very quiet, after she left. Carefully Grandpa brushed the crumbs off the red-checked tablecloth, and wash- ed the dishes. That had been a pretty fair meal for an old man who "hatched." Perhaps the mashed potatoes weren't up to Jennie's -- they were sort of lumpy. But the sausage was prime, seasoned just right. The apple sauce was tasty, too. He chuckled• Wouldn't Jennie laugh to see him puttering around like thisl He had never been much of a hand in the kitchen, at cooking, that is. He used to clutter up the place plenty with his tools and wood. Well, he hoped Jennie knew he was getting on all right. She would be unhappy otherwise. Tambourine, black as night, kept get- ting in Grandpa's way, rubbing against his legs. "Yes, yes, I remember," he said, strok- ing the cat's black fur. "Just be patient; your turn'.s coming." Grandpa thought of Janie. Tambourine was Junta's cat, but Janie had left her with Grandpa when she went away to the hospital for training. He missed Janie. She was very much like her Grandmother. "There," he said, stooping to fill Tam- bourine's saucer; aren't you the pam- pered and spoiled cat! That's mostly cream." Stooping brought again that pesky crick in his back. Perhaps he was getting a little old. -Seventy-ninewa longer than a man's allotted time, according tothe Good Book. He wasn't feeble yet, though. Not by a long shot! It was just" this misery in his joints. Ever sihce he'd had that bad spell, his back and knees had bothered him. But shucks! Lettie's fool idea .that he ought to sell the place and come and live with them was all nonsense. He was get- ting along fine, with Hank Jarrett com- ing in morning and evening to attend to the chores. He'd seen plenty of old folks going to live with their children. He wasn't ready for that. Not yet! Grandpa held Jennie's old plaid shawl in front of the stove so it would get good and warm. A pretty good, old shawl it was, with plenty of service in it yet, though no wonder it showed signs of wear. Jennie used to wear it on a cold winter's day, when they rode to church In the sleigh. Later she used to bundle the babies up in it. Now it came in han- dy for Grandpa's aching knees. Perhaps he shouldn't have worked in the yard so long today, but he always did like to work out of doors, and make -the place all trim and tidy. There was a" place fn the fence that needed mending. He must get after that tomorrow. The next morning Grandpa was sur- prised and irritated to ind 'he could not get out of bed. It seemed a long time before Hank's cheery whistle proclaimed that he had arrived at the kitchen door. "That you, Hank?" called Grandpa. His voice still worked, if his Joints didn't. "This pesky back's gone back on me," he said. "Perhaps you'd better call Lettle." It didn't take long for Lettle to arrive from town. She bustled about Grandpa's room briskly and capably. Grandpa ac- cepted her ministrations gratefully, but did wish she wouldn't talk so much. His back hadn't let him sleep much last night, and now after the good warm breakfast Lettie had prepared, and her vigorous rubbing with liniment, he felt drowsy. She was just a mite too efficient, was Lettie. The bed looked better, perhaps, all tucked in at the bottom, but he didn't like it that way. She had hung up his clothes in the wardrobe, too, though they could be reached more conveniently from the chair where he had left them. "I "have been afraid of something like this, Father," Lettie's voice wenL on and on, "and I've worried a lot. Surely you can see how much better it would be to get rid of this place entirely, and come and live with us." • Wtt.h as mighty a heave as Grandpa could manage he loosened the covers around his feet. "I'd like to sleep now, Lettte," he said. The days in bed gave Grandpa plenty of opportunity to think. Perhaps it was foolish for an old man to live alone. May: be he was a worry to Lettte. He ought to be thankful Lettie and her husband wanted him with them. Perhaps 'he had better sell, but no other place would ever feel like home. Some days later Grandpa sat by the open fire making out a list• "For sale," it read: "Parlor set, green plush, chairs and settee." That set was still good. He and Jennie had bought it when the chil- dren were growing up and needed a parlor. He always thought it was real pretty, the green so bright and cheerful- like, and Jennie had set a lot of store by it. "Beds," his pencil wrote on: "one solid walnut." His grandfather had made.that bed, from wood on the old place• He had thought Lettie would like it, but Lettte had said her house was already too full of furniture. Grandpa sighed.
