"Before Khe came from Boston to
pay us a visit." declared Mrs. Coyle
the younger, "our home was one of
the happiest in town. Now it Is lust
the opposite. My mother-tn-law told
me I did not know anything about
housekeeping, and assumed charge of
the house. She would seldom allow me
to feed or dress my baby."
"The statement of my daughter-in
law Is untrue," said Mrs. Coyle tho
elder. "It may be that she does not
know how to keep house for my son,
but I did not Interfere."
After Magistrate McOulre questioned
both women and learned that Mrs.
Coyle. of ?Boston, had been at the homo
of Mrs. Coyle, of Brooklyn, ten days,
"A ten-day viBlt Is enough for any
mother-ln-law to pay any of her chil?

in Boston I would suggest that she

Then Magistrate McGuire said tho*.
any future trouble in the Coyle family
resulting from the visit of the mother
