**I never robbed you!" indignantly
exclaimed Mrs. Bowser.
"Perhaps it was the eat. I counted
my money as soon as I came to and
found a two dollar bill missing. I am
not going to the attic for athletic exer
cise, however. I am walking to and
from the office these mornings, and
that is enough."
"Then why not sit here and talk?"
Mr. Bowser walked up and down for
five minutes before he replied. It was
evld; m thai he wanted to trust her.
but he was also afraid of her. Finally
"Professor Zangwiily was in the office
this afternoon, slid afler we had talk

I didn't go in and cultivate my voice
for public speaking and reading. He
said I had uo voice for song, but that
as a reader, lecturer or speaker 1
would make a great success. I have
often been asked to read and speak in
public, you know."
"And ron are going up to the attic
to cultivate it?"

"I am. For $5 he gave me certain
instructions to follow, and 1 am going

all know. Is to get proper enunciation."
"Why can't we have tbe Sylvesters
over and play a few games of cards?"
asked Mrs. Bowser as a sigh escaped
"Are the Sylvesters and a few games
of cards of more consequence than
your husband's voice?"
That silenced her, and after Mr.
Bowser had waited around for a spell
without receiving any answer he pass
ed upstairs and to the Barret. The cook
had gone to her room, but in the course
of ten minutes she came down looking
pale faced and wild eyed and asked of
"Has it come at last, ma'am?"
"What do you mean. Susan?"
"Has Mr. Bowser gone out of his
head and become dangerous?"
"Of course not."
"Then what's he doing upstairs go

"He's cultivating his voice so as to

"I never heard the likes, but it you
say it's so I must believe yon. Hark
to that, will yon! The neighbors will
think we are all being nutrdcreil!"
Mr. Bowser's voice had improved so
much in a ouarter of an hour that It
could be beard clear downstairs. Mrs.
Bowser took a glance from a trout
window anil saw that several people
had Stopped in front of the house.
Then she climbed to the attic to give
Mr. Bowser a word of caution. She
found him with coat, vest and collar
Off and the sweat standing out on his
forehead, and he erected her entrance
"Hip. hip. hip! Hop hip hop hip!
Ma ty! Ma-ry! Ma ry! Sain! Sam!
"Do you know that people are stop

"What for? Hip: Hop! Hip! Su

"Your shooting makes them wonder
what is going on. Can't you lower
your voice a little?"
"Not by the fourteen horns of the

"I have got to do just as the pro
fessor told me. I want a voice that
can t»e heard ail over a hall holding
10.000 people. Hi! Hi! Hi! Ho! Ho!
Mrs. Bowser went downstairs and
left him at it, and she saw from the
window that the number of people had
Increased to fifty. The sash was
raised, and she heard one man say:
"I tell you it's Bowser. He's boon
off his chump for two or three years
past, and he's dually become buggy.
He ought to be taken to an nsylnm to
"Why don't one of these boys go for

noise keeju £y ua one on the block will
get an hour's sleep tonight."
"Cosmo! Cosmo! Cosmo! Dick! Dick!
Dick! Dau! Dan! Dan!" came the voice
of Mr. Bowser just .as the bell rang,
and Mrs. Bowser answered it to find
a policeman ou the steps.
"How lo:ig has he been act ins this
way?" Whispered the officer as he
dodged Into the hall.
"Do you mean Mr. Bowse.':"
"Yes. or whoever that is roaring out
like a mad bull. Has the doctor seen
him and ordered him to the asylum
"A way! A way! A-way! Heave ho!
Heave ho! Heave ho!" shouted the voice
cultivator in the attic.
"It is Mr. Bowser, sir." said Mrs.
Bowser with all the dignity she could
call up. "and h«' is uot crazy."
"Then, mum. could 1 ask without
hurtin' your feelia'S how long he's been
on the spree?"
"He Is perfectly sober, sir."
"Then he must have rats after him.
You can see what a crowd has gath
ered, and that noise must stop or I
shall lose my Job. The word came to
the station house that five people were
being murdered by a lunatic."
"Very Well; you can go up."
The officer found his way to the attic.
Mr. Bowser was waving his arms and
bending his body and enunciating, but
after the officer had seized him and
given htm two shakes he dropped voice
culture and there was a contest of lan
guage lasting rive minutes. At the end
of that time the officer came down
stairs and smile<| :it Mrs. Bowser as
he opened the door to pass out and as
sure the people that there was no cause
for alarm. The whooping had stopped
for good atal they could go borne and
assure their families that no deed of
blood would occur. 'Hie crowd had
melted away when Mr. Bowser de
scended. He walked straight up to
Mrs. Bows** and hovered over her for
a long minute before he could speak.
Then his enunciation was perfect as
be said .
"Woman, this U your seventeenth at

"Yes?" she replied.
"You were hound and determined to
have my voice remain like the sounds
of an old tile drawn across a coal scut
tle, and you gathered that mob and
sent for the police."
"Tomorrow we separate — separate.
You consult your lawyer—l consult
mine. The dead line has beeu reached.
tJood night. Mrs. Bowser. I go to the
library to look over some papers."
Mrs. Bowser went to l>ed. aud two
hours later when he came upstairs she
heard him growl to himself:
