I Telk Why She Puts j
• Fortii the Strong Hand *
(Copyright, McClure Newspaper Syndicate.)
By M. QUAD.
I ain Mr, BowMT'l mothor-ln-law,
and a ■hare of the public has known
It for a long time.
When Burauel Bowser asked me for
my dKUghter'l hand I looked long In
to his fnco. I saw thnt which made
me believe that he would make a man
full of whims and crocjiets, and that
he would dream wild dreams, and I
(It tenii'ncd. then and there, to put
forth a strong hand, and I have ex
ercised thu iron heel ever since.
Sir. Bowser differs greatly from the
The average son-in-law just dotes
on his mother-in-law. He is thankful
to her; he loves her; at every oppor-
"You've Got Company at Your Home."
tunltj Ijc shows his love and gratitude
by kissing her. Tlie average son-in
law, no matter where he is, will grow
wings and fly home when he hoars that
biH mother-in-law has arrived. He will
wear a coat three years old to present
her with a set of furs at Christmas
time. Mr. Bowser has never done those
tilings for me. On the contrary, he
smrted out his married life hy letting
me know that I couldn't run him, and
thnl he didn't love me a cent's worth.
I let him have a little rope to gamhol
iirtnind, and then I shut down on him.
It was a hard struggle for a time but
I conquered him.
I arrived at Mr. Bowser's house
on one of my periodical visits the
oilier evening. As I afterwards
learned, he had not yet reached his
gate on his way up to dinner when
n boy en Mod out to him:
"Say, Mr. Bowser, you've got com
puny at your house."
"And who is it?" asked Mr. Bowser.
"Why. it's that old woman; I guess
ehp's your mother-in-law."
That was enough for Mr. Bowser.
All his pleasant thoughts vanished in
a moment. He came up the steps
like u iiiitn goingl up to tbe gallowi.
I met liim in the hall as he opened
the door mill held out my hund, and
onlled him Samuel and snid 1 wns
just dying to see him once tnori>. He
kj>p: hl« linnds to himself and when
he could s|le:il; he said :
"Oh. it's you. Is It? A boy Told me
hnek there that some old woman had
come tti Hi"' house Did I write you
tlmt wp would be glad. Indeed, If you
would |>:iy us one of your pleiisant
•'.No. Samuel, you didn't," 1 replied.
"I did no! need such u letter. I
shall come here when I dnrn plense,
and I shall stay as long as I want
to and you have girt mighty little to
say about It. Don't you liegin to cut
up rusty at this early stuge of the
game, or there'll be a row to call out
the tire department I"
Siitnnel turned pale, and bit tit
whrtt he whs going to say and we all
went down to dinner. It was a
happy men I. Almost every word 1
• I'oV r was addressed to Snmuel. Be
tried to ignore me, but he couldn't
do It. No mother-in law with an
Iron hefl Fan he ignored by her son
in-law. I asked after his health, his
hudll— mid why he hadn't run up
some dav to see me and give me a
ntfttheri) kiss, and I boxed him up
In fine shupe.
Just us w4 left the. table bt re-
marked that he vu going to • bowl-
Ing club that ntght and that m
would have to entertnln ourseWw.
When we got upstairs he was going
to make some change In his clothing, ,
I took him by his coat collar and '
"fcamuel Bowser, you sit right
down here and hear what I have to
BHy. If you go to a bowling club, I
shnll bo with you! I don't know
what ii bowline club Is. Iwt 1 want
to learn. It seems as If I had beard
that they shoot Ht nine irtns or ten
pins ut bowline clubs, but I am go-
Ing along to make Rure. It must be
very amusing and exciting, but I
want to see for myself."
"You'd look nice at a bowling club,"
wM Samuel's mean reply.
"I'd look Just as nice as you would.
Yon are not the prettiest man In the
world, though you have got a whole
cartload of conceit about you. I can
be ready In two minutes."
"You needn't set rendy, for I shan't
stir a step!"
"Well, we can pass a pleasant eve
ning here. There are lots of things I
want to tnlk to you about."
"There will be no talking here," said
Mr. Bowser through his clenched teeth.
"If I don't go to the bowling club, I
shall go to a poker club. My club has
a great game on hand tonight."
■ "Good !" I exclaimed. "Poker suit*
me better than bowls. You didn't
know, did you, that I played poker?
Well. I do, and have been called the
best player In our town. I can. 811 a
straight or a flush nine times oat of
ten, and have held royal flushes four
times In one evening. Why, Samuel,
I will play the coats off the backs of
nil the members of the club."
"There will be no poker for you
this evening," said Mr. Bowser, "t
won't go anywhere If you are going
to tag along after me. Haven't you
any sense of propriety?"
"Heaps of It, Samuel, but you don't
get away alone this blessed night.
You need me to watch over you. Some .
mother-In-laws wouldn't care a cop
per if tholr only son-in-law went to
destruction, but It happens that I do.
and so I shall take good care of you."
Mr. Bowser settled back Into his
chair to plan something. His wife,
who was at the head of the stairs
and had heard our talk, threw me
down my hat and cape, that I might
be rendy for any emergency. It was
very thoughtful of her, and it was a
help That come just in time. I had
turned my back to look out of a win
dow when Mr. Bowser softly sneaked
down the hall, and had got his hat
on when I discovered him. He had
not yet closed the door behind him,
when I was at his side. I had cape
and hat in my hand, and I put them
on anyway. At the gate Mr. Bowser
started on a run and I ran after
him, and soon overtook him, for no
son-in-law can outrun his mother-in
law If she Is determined to win the
"It Is a pleasant evening, Mr. Bow
ser," I said as I took his arm.
"Say, are you going to make a holy
show of yourself?" he exclaimed as he
came to a stop.
"Not unless you compel me to,
Sammy," I replied In motherly tones.
"Let us stroll about a little while and
see the moon and stars and learn a
little about astronomy. We will after
ward call at the residence of Mr.
"I Ran After Him."
Bowser, which Is somewhere along
here. Perhaps you have read of Mr.
Bowser In the papers? He is an awful
nice man, but he has lots of whim*
and oddities. I think you will like him
if you become acquainted."
"This Is a disgrace," he said la
desperation, not knowing what to do.
"Don't take It so much to heart.
Samuel. You have got the bes#
mather-ln-law la any four states, and
she is only belax kind to you. If you
feel chills go up and down your baofe
bone, and you probably do. let us fo
back Into the Bowser house."
Mr. Bowser came back without an
other struggle or a word, and when he
hung up his hat In the hall I knew I
had him beaten. He gave a gasp and
a sigh, and fell Into the nearest chair
like a bag of sand dropped from the
roof of a horse barn. He didn't talk
much that evening, but sat and glared
at me, and once in a while be uttered
o "humph" to himself. He didn't show
one bit of conceit, and he didn't swell
out lils chest and try to play boss. He
was lust silent and very, very food,
and when I left home, after a live days'
visit, he almost squeezed my hand
when he said good-by.
As I said before. Mr. Bowser U a
good man nt heart, bat there Is u«ed
of a brick house falling on him •beat
oni'e In six week*, and I am that bitck
house and I NhaU continue to fall.
