The County's Prize Baby (1912)
- Summaries (1)
The wife was happy, for her husband was well-to-do, and she liked living on a farm. The man, however, was ambitious, and the first quarrel of the couple was directly due to the fact that he was sent to the state legislature. At the capital the man met numerous natty officials, and he learned from them how to dress and carry himself in good society. The wife saw the wives of these men, but seemingly had no ambition to be stylishly groomed as these were, in fact. The husband entertained a number of society people one night and was shocked and vexed at the appearance his wife presented. When the guests had departed he scolded her. The woman left her husband's roof an hour later, taking her baby with her, and vowed she would never return to him again. The husband accepted her decision. Three years later the husband was a Congressman, with his eye on a seat in the United States Senate. In the course of his campaign he attended a country fair. The officials asked him to be judge at the baby show, and he promptly consented. All sorts of babies were there, and the task of picking out the finest one had elements of difficulty. The Congressman, however, made up his mind very promptly. His eyes lighted on one child and from that moment none of the others could compare with her. She got the blue ribbon. The child's mother, who had lost her in the crowds on the fairgrounds, came rushing in at this point and clasped the child in her arms. She then turned to the Congressman, and husband and wife looked into each other's eyes. During the years of separation each had been convinced that the blame was not all on one side, and their beautiful little daughter furnishes an additional reason for reconciliation.
