'Tht-reti ao ote4,n Insisted bis old- time friend, Grec Parsons. "Be sensi ble. Kirn, and take sin old cotnrede's sdvli-e. . Mellnds DockrlltLjour wife. Is the verj bent housekeeper In Carl' dm.' and nobody disputes It. She tends tier-house and minds her .own buxiiiess so far. as ber nelghhora are concerned, but she baa. been hard. terrJhly bard on you." . There was a good deal of sense and refl(i to what both men said, and despite Eira'a weak explanations their point of view was practically Mentli-nl. Kzra was beginning to get the reputation of being benpecked, and his excellent wife, excellent la some ways had . degenerated Into a scold. Mellnria bockrlll was fast growing Ihtj a household tyrant. When Walter Mnywell came courting their pretty dnuirhter. Klora, She opposed the match tooth and nail. When Just now some old panlsh American war coniraaes or tzra waniea mm to go over to Pelham to a reunion, she-hid his old uniform, kept blm awake two tilshts- lecturing blm on the pernU clotlsiiess of wasting his time, and flatly refused to allow him to even mnrch to the depot wltb his friends. That might have been well enough, for, as said before, Ezra was meek. patient and a self-sacrificing sort of twin. Klght on top of this decision of the masterful Mellnda, . however, there was a scene In the household that appealed to another aide of Ezra's nature. Toung May well had come to Mrs. Dockrlll In a frank, mam; way to ask permission to marry Flora. She had put her husband aside In the discussion without even con suiting him. The result was that poor Walter went about town, a dejected reproach to the klnd-souled Ezra, and pWlora mourned till all tlie happi- " tiess seemed gone out" of her life. That evening Esra eame lawn to the Parsons borne. "See here, Greg," hesald, "we were talking about Mellnda today." "Quite right. Ezra: what about Itr "Why, Just this I've been tjilnklng over what you said." ."About time, should say," re-ponileil Parsons. - "I don't care for myself. I can stand, Mellmla'a peculiarities. That iwHir glii'iif mine,, though, and young 'Mnywell she's set them grieving their ht-iirts nwny with her 'stubborn ways, iind It Nti't right. It Isn't right!" and Kzra liroke , lon:n. "Ezra," said." Parsons very seriously, "If you will follow out my directions I'll guarantee to cure your wife of her fiintrums In week." :"fiivg." responded Ezra.7 grasping the hand of his old-time friend fervidly. ""yoV do Just that and I'll give you . those old war relics of mine you've coveted so long. What am I to (In to help yon?" 1 . :' If Ezra Dockrlll was mystified as to the plan of his friend, bis erratic helpmeet tind rlenr hysterica when she found he had defied her authority and had gone to the reunion. She rushed down to the Parsons home, enraged, then anxious, and- finally alarmed. "I've got. a sort of doleful story to tell you. Mellnda," said her old friend; "I'm, afraid Ezra has broken the traces." It's like a horse checked up too- high.: Give him the chance and the crllter'll sprint." - V hy, what do you, mean tSureIy nothing serious hns happened to Ezra?" cried Mrs. Dockrlll. a quick catch In lier voice. It's the warlike spirit, you See, Mellnda," explained Mr. Parsons. Everyone is talking about the Mell on n war. Why, there were. lots of the old soldiers Just wild to enlist. Ezra Is a brave man. The war spirit got hint. They were recrluting at Pel- ham. If he's joined the army again he'll make his mark." . It was there that Mrs. Dockrlll broke down"Tell ynu nowiiibserved ! (tie sixrlous I'srsons. "I might have a little Influence with the adjutant general, and Ezra,,too, If he really has enlisted. You've got to promise concession. His heart IS Set on Flora and young Maywell " "I'll agree I I'll agree r Interrupt ed Mrs. Dockrlll Vehemently. "Only get my dear husband back and "he'll never have to' complain of me again.1 She passed a sleepless night When that precious old schemer. Parsons, presented her husband the next day at noon, Mellnda threw her arms about the neck of her prodigal spouse, and Parsons ' sneaked away feeling quite mean for giving so hard a lesson to a deserving though at times somewhat contentious woman. si-mvisoBt rnAMciAL nATBitwr AC riaiaclal tatMamt ot tha .Tewa af pis.
