Two good friends are at the tulip bed. Clarence, at the left, holds the record for perfect church attendance. Mrs. Sheldon, at the right, can be relied on as her strength permits.Mr. Sheldon is two bits camera shy. But the photographer had an idea. Mr. Sheldon would let him take a picture of the cow. But, the cow would not stand still. Mr. Sheldon sought to quiet her fears and to jump aside before the camera clicked. But it happened that the camera clicked before the stage was clear, and we have a picture of Mr. Sheldon, true to life.
