Her temper was quick and stormy,

man's conduct when a man was

At any rate, she did not look the

not forgne. Had she been short hair

could see her roping a horse, and it '
always made him shudder. Then, too,
she was so many sided.
Sheldon certainly was not happy.

was too much for bis conservative dis

Joan took h f the household with
no uncertain grip. revolutionizing
things till Sheldon hardly recognized
the place. For the first time the bun
galow was clean and orderly. No
longer the house boys loafed and did
as little as they could; while the cook
complained that "head belong him
walk about tc-" much" from the stren
uous course in cookery which she put
iiru through. Nor d.d Sheldon escape
being roundly lectured for his l.izl
tii-ss in eating Eothitig but tinned pro

and a slouch, and other invidious
names, for his slackness and his dis
regr.rd of heclthful f iod.
