Itirtead of going down town after break
fast tho otner morning Mr. Bowser slipped
up stous, and when he came down again he
had on his old clothes. Some changes had
been made in the house by which we had
gamed a now bedroom, and it at once oc
curred to me that Mr Bowser and his old
clothes aud that bedroom were in some way
"You you are not going to the office this
morning!" I queried.
"No, ma am "
"You are not gomg to make garden1"
"Hardly. I propose to finish up that bed
"Well, I shall paper the walls, to begin
"ilr Bowser, I wish you wouldn't I tele

"And I stopped last evening and told him

"But you can't hang papr "
"Oh, I can t' Prepare your-elf for a sur

"Mr Bowser, I solemnly warn you not to
attempt it You will only make a failure of
it and then blame me "
"There wdl be neither fadure nor blame
about it 1 11 show you the paper."
He bad it hidden in tho barn When he
brought it in and displayed it I felt like cry
ing It was dark, cneap paper, or a pattern
several years old, and I was prepared for his
annoi ncement that it was a job lot which ho
had secured at five cents a roll

An hour k.ter there was a crash up stairs
which awoke the baby, frightened the cat
into falling off tho window sdl, and caused
the coo- to 9y into the sitting room and call
out that a "ioinclone ' had struck the house
and bi ought dow n every chimney. I hurried
up stairs to Mr Bowser Ho sat in a chair
trying to smilo aud look unconcerned, but
ono of the steps of tho ladder was gone and I
know that ho had come down like a load of
"Did you call?" I aked
"Me? Oh, no I am studying on an idea."
Theio was paste on his hair and pieces of
wall paper sticking to his back, but I with
drew without further remark When he
came down at noon I was in hopes he had
abandoned the v ork It was evident ho had
a lame back, and he dragged one leg as ho
walked, and I thougntita fitting opportunity
"I vodldnt botner with that room any
irore if I were jou I presume you are
wanted at the oihee "
Jut before supper ho came down and te7e
pLoned 101 two more rolls of paper and forty
feet nioio of border but ho looked so palo
faced and stoop shouldered and done out that
I hadn't the heatt to ay c.n) tLing about the
room He fell asleep in his chair w hile read
ing th paper, andev erv few moments uttered
a groan or high Ho was paste and paper f rom
head to heel md back again, and could hard
ly get ud scans from tho lameuess in h.s legs
and back Next morning, as he seemed uu
decided v hether to go to the office or up
stairs, I asked if I shouldn t telephone for the

"I wouldn't bo as jealous minded as you are,
Mrs. Bowser, for all the money in the world
You ai o snaking m v our shoes for feai that
I w 11 do a l eailv nice bit of work "
It was 4 o clock m the afternoon before he
would allow mo to enter tho room, and then
Le announced its completion.
"Jut give me a fair and honest opinion of
it, without reference to relationship," he
suid, as ho stood in tho center of tho room
aud looked ci ound.
If ho had been ai med with a knife to cut
my throat I should have been compelled to
laugh Sv en of the strips were wroug end
up Four or nv e of them were on crooked
He had lapped the paper on to the base and
window casings and his border was up and
down like tho waves of the sea
"Have you escaped from Kalamazoo?" he
demanded, as I laughed until I had to sit
down on tho floor
"Mr Bowser, I hav e a request to make of
you perhaps a dying request. Let me bring
in ome of the neighbors to see tint "
'Certainly, and if they don't say it is one
of the neatest jobs they ev er saw Til give in "
I snt cook out and got three of the nearest
ladie, and w hen thy entered the menagerie
Mr Bowser retired to dress himself. He
wouldn't come out until they had departed,
but be must have heard all tnat was said.
At supper tima he came down and quietly re
marked "I suppose you want the custody of the
child, Mrs Bowser"'
"What do you mean1"
"Why, after encouraging me to snend two
davs of my time m papering that room, that
you might criticise mv wor, it will be best
that we separate During the evening you
had better make out a list of the things you
want to reserve."
