The girl, however, regarded this suitor as a pin head. At a dance one evening she met a real man, and it was a case of love at first sight on both sides. There was nothing slow about the new suitor and within a month he had won the girl's consent to their marriage. When he asked her parents for her hand, however, trouble ensued, because when questioned as to his business he had to admit that he was a farmer. The thought of their child as a farmer's wife was too much for the old folks, and they forbade the match. The girl was steadfast in her love, but at first refused to elope with the young man. She told him that she was not fitted to be a farmer's wife because she knew absolutely nothing about how to care for a farm or a kitchen. She determined to learn, however, and spent her vacation on a run-down old farm, learning how to milk cows, make bread, and chop wood. In the fall she told her sweetheart that she was now competent to assume her position and consented to elope with him. After their marriage he took her to his farm, which she found with surprise to be a model structure noted all over the United States. She did not have to do the chores or get up at 4 a.m., or blow a fish horn to call the hired men to dinner. In fact, she was far better off than she ever had been at home. Even her parents admitted it, especially when they found out that the banker whom they revered was only a $10 a week clerk with no prospects of ever being anything more.
