A MODERN PETRUCIHO.
1 rememoered him paming back ana forth
between hia room, and cbapet, and recitation
at college. There was alsravi the am mi

He had been devoted to the stage. When
a new company came to town he would be
found among its audiences from the first to
the last. He would rather see a bad play
than no play at all; and when he was nut at
the theatre, he read plays. Notwithstanding
his peculiarities, all of his set loved biro. He
was kind hearted, tmpulidve, generous. His
face was a mirror for hi feelings, and no one
ever saw it reflect aught except what was
Ingenuous. This was the man 1 had parted
from, five rears before, upon leaving college.
Now he was a new man a new man, aud
ret the same old Peter Brown. He was
named. He had Just entertained me at
dinner. The wife, a decided looking little
woman, sat at the board, plainly its mistresa.
Taxr was no wine; and when we left the
table, we all left it together, and without a
suspicion of the odor of tobacco.
We had chatted perhaps half an hour in
Die drawing room, when Peter roue and, stg
kaling me to follow him, led the way up
three flights of stairs to a little chamber with
but one window. All the furniture it con
tained was two easy chairs, a table, and a
cupboard hanging againxt the wait The
door closed, Peter drew a long sigh. Then
be went to the cupboard and took out a
bottle, some glamea, and a box of cigars.
Come, Feb-," I said, lighting a areed be
gars me, and throwing myself bark in the
cushions, "tell me all about it."
"I see that conviviality is restricted in
your uouao. I am curious to know why."
His expression was sad.
Madam objects f I queried.
"Madam objects. " He cast a rueful glance
around the aitartment.

lie lit his cigar and bxtran to relate an at
tempt which for originality and ingenuity
had never been equaled by any of his ex
tremely remarkable freaks while in college.
Yon remember how fond 1 used to be of the
theatrel Well, I've got over that, but it took
a terrible experience to cure me. Of all the
plays ever put on the stage mv favorite and

was a model of clever now, and before I was
old enough to have a wife I vowed that, if
she should he a shrew. I would be a Petruchio.
I first met my wife at a tennis party. She
was my partner, and looked very pretty in a
loose tennis jacket, a striped shirt, aud a
jaunty cap. With me it was one of those
came wbeu a man's heart flies right out of his
bosom like a tennis ball from a racket and
lights on the girL We played very well to
gether, and were neck and neck with our op
ponents near the end of the game, when a
foul ball was served to my partner, which she
"That's foul !" I exclaimed.
"What do you mean f she a-ked, sharply.
"It fell out of the court."
"No such thing."
t "1 beg pardon," I repliod, politely; "it
looked so to me."
'I'll le obliged if you'll play your own
game and let me play mine,'1 she returned
"I beg pardon." I tout-bed my cap apolo
getically and the game went on.
There was siauething about the Iwrefared
assurance and dictatorial manner of the pro
ceeding that attracted my attention. Some
how 1 became dazzled by the girl's angry
eyes, I could see nothing but a pretty face,
a petiUi figure, a striped shirt and a jaunty
can. I went away from the tennis party with
the little termagant tuning about in my
thoughts like a bumble be among the holly
hocks. I secured an introduction to her father's
house; quarreled with ber at my first call;
made it up on the second by retracting every
thing I had said; found myself cut by bora
few days after; apologized for something I
had not done; tried in every way I could
think of to pleas hiw, and finally found my
self madly in love with a girl who promised,
if 1 should win bur, to make my life a pande
monium. I went on a trip to be gone a mouth, to try
and forget bar, but returned in a week thor
oughly convinced that I conldnt get on with
out her. I proposed. She would probably
have refused m had not ber father told her
that be wouldn't have a man for a son-in-Ia w
who "languished under such a theatrical
drawl." That settled it. I was accepted.
There was nothing for me but a life of
misery with a stubborn, quarrelsome woman.
At wast, so it seemed to me. No man could
live In peace with her unless be could break
her. But could 1 do tblf I thought of Petru
chio, and sat domn and read over "The Tam
ing of the Shrew" for the hundredth tune. I
noticed that Petruchio first got the lady into
bis power and then commenced his traiuing.
I resolved to be married at once.
The next day I went to my lady love and
told her that, owing to business engagements
which would require my absence, it w ould be
Impossible for me to claim ber within a year.
She informed ma that, unlra I could find It
convenient to claim ber the next week, I
eould Wiok elsewhere fur a partner. 1 bad
scored one point. 1 accepted tb tonne and
we were married.
We went through the honeymoon pleas
antly, for I determined not to cross her in
anything, waiting till we should be comfort
ably settled at bom in the house her father
had given ber, in tne same street in which he
lived, and only a few blocks away. Then I
proposed to commence a modern Instance of
the taming of shrew.
The honeymoon ended and we arrived at
bom. I had hired the oook myself and, by
promising a large reward, had secured her to
my plan. It was understood that she was not
to give my wlf food without my permission.
I didnt rely much on this part of the pro-
r -amine to starve ber into submission but
thought I'd try it with tb other things.
We sat down to our first dinner at bom.
My wife sat opposite me, looking so pretty,
axaeptionally good natured, that my heart
almost failed me. After all, wouldn't it be
better to wait until ah should provoke met
No, I had laid the plan and I would carry it
out. All our future depended upon it. The
servant placed before uie a smoking joint. I
took np the carving knife and whetted it on
tb steel savagely. II y heart beat like a ket
tle drum. Boinehow it struck me that I a at
about to make a foul of myself; but 1 thought
again of all that was at ct.c, m gao my

By this time my wife had partially re

sen an evidence of will power that she daren't

tation I rose from tb table. My wife followed

the ball, and taking my hat aud stick turned
toward her and said :

I went directly to my club. Taking my old
seat in tb dining room I ordered a good din
ner and a bottle of win. I felt that thus far
all bad gun as could b expected The ball
was opened. My wn was at horn and no
dinner. I was at tbe club with plenty to sat
and a bottle of excellent Chateau Margaux.
By th tim I bad drained tbe last glass I felt
quit equal to tb remainder of th ordeal
before me, and resolved firmly not to depart
on Iota from my model Petruchio. Baring
finished my dinner and tossed off a pony of
brandy to put a capper on any courage, I re
turned to my work. I was surprised"" to find
my wife quia calm. Sbe was ready to go
within to ler father's. 8 he quietly took
my arm and walked slowly up th street.
It was about dusk. The full moon, rising,
atood in tb eust Urge and round.
"How largt tbe moon looks," sbe remarked.
"It is full totdght, I think."
"Yes, the loon. I said th moon."
"Its th at n. The moon never shines at
this tim of d y ."
"Oh, is itT Her ton didn't imply convic

"Do you mea t to contradict me I
There was I.B ominous pause.
"Oh, no; I wouldn't think of contradicting
such an astronomical prodigy. "Of course
its tb sun." Her tone made ma crawl.
"Then I an." it's the moon."
"Do you ? I knew when I married you that
you weren't I right, but I supposed you could
at least tell tie sun from tbe moon."
Tbe conver ettion terminated at this point.
I was not gt tting on, and was glad when, a
few momentt later, we reached ber father's
bouse. We iters received with open arras, of
course. "Hw well you both look 1" and

No sooner were their greetings over, and
we had kisseil and been kissed all round, than
my wife and ber mother disappeared.
"What's tlatr I asked myself.
From the dining room, separated from
where we w-re only by a door, I beard my
wife's voice mingling with th clatter of
dishes on hai d mahogany.
I leaned l ack in my chair a trifle discour
aged. The tar vat ion part of my plan was
surely a fail ire. But then I hadn't counted
much on tha
Mrs. Brow i speut the whole evening in the
dining room and then sent m word that she
would remain all night with ber mother.
This was an avenue that I had not thought
of. I wincou There was nothing for me to
do but go ho ne alone. I did so and went to
bed loss ho leful than I had been sine th
commencement of hostilities.
Tbe next evening when I returned from
business 1 fo md my wife at home and in the
hands of a dressmaker. Sbe bad been pro
vided with lol elaborate trousseau ; but one
dress, design id to be worn on ber reception
days, had len left unfinished. She was
standing before the mirror in the gown, the
skirt of which tne dressmaker was arranging
to hang mot e evenly. I advanced and took
the fabric between my thumb and finger.
"What rotten stuff is tlnsT I asked.
"It's silk, ir," faltered tlie drexunaker.
"Costly silt, sir."
"It's a basi imitation. A mixture of poor
silk and cott m. And this!"
"Do you tU me this is lace I My wife shall
wear no suet stuff. Sbe must be dressed as
becomes ber matchless beauty."
My wife stood staring at me in mute won
der. Was it fear or anger that first blanched
her cheek an 1 then flushed it hot as firet I
shuddered at the Unit word he should speak.
But it was not spoken. Beckoning to the
dressmaker :o follow ber, she strode out of
the room, and pasting into the adjoining
chamber locked tbe door.
I descended to th dining room. It was
diuuer time aud I was very hungry. I
waited for a i hour for my wife to come down
and dine. 1 vaited in vain. At last I resolved
to diue aloiH .
"(Jet me s bottle of wine, Jane," I said to
"Madam has it under lock and key,
I need not report to you th familiar little
word I used jo express my displeasure. I took
my bat and sent to the club and dined there.
I sat aloue at my table thinking over the
situation. I : bad been tbe inorniug aud was
now the evei .ing of tbe second day, and some
how I didn't feel that it was good.
I went ho ne at 13 midnight. I was tired
and sleepy, t ut purposely delayed so that my
wife might tave time to think to arrive at
tbe coucluik n that she must sooner or later
come to uie vanquished and beg for term&
Then 1 pronvd to take her to my arms, ex
plain my stiange conduct and bid her be a
datiful wile, hereupon all such evidences uf
my dntpleasiire would b avoided in future.
When I wen; upstairs 1 fouud our bedroom
door locked idid bolted. I hud especially ar
ranged it m self for safety against burglars,
and knew 1 couldn't force it. 1 must either
beg to be I it in or stay out. Tbe former
would be fatal; the latter I did. I went to
another rooio. It was locked. I tried an
other and another; all were locked. I aroused
the servants and demanded the keys. They
were all in madam's posseskion. I weut down
into th libriiry. 1 bad turned out th lights
when I weut up, and it was pitchy dark. I
stumbled ov.-r tbe coal scuttle and fell, strik
ing my head on a sharp corner of tbe mantel.
Throwing m rself onto a sofa I caught tbe
flow of Mod in my handkerchief. I laid
awake all tight and fell asleep after day
I was awakened by my wife in the morn
ing opening he library windows. I saw th
bloody hand erchief lying on tbe floor, and
caught It up in tiro a prevent bor perceiv
"D'd you -est wall, my dearT aba asked.
There was a modulation in her voice which
I dreaded ni ire than harshness. It maddened
me. I was really angry now. and it required
no acting to play my part Without noticing
ber I arose nd weut upstairs and inade my
toilet That. I passed down and out of the
house to get my breakfast at the cjub.
As I sat sating my chop and sipping my
Ooffe of d mhle strength I required it I
made up my mind that before tbe day was
over I must utber conquer or be conquered.
I bad not thus far bean eminently successful,
but I reason. j that women war weaker than
men. and if my wife felt the strain as I did

excuM to lie violent, and be as violent as pos
sible. As I ipeued the front door with my
latch key I taw my wif standing in th par

moved her hat and gloves. I remembered
Petrucbio's attack ou his wife's cap. Her
was my cha ice.
"What buv you on your head f I asked
"My bonnet, dear."
"It doean'-. become you."
I conflden ly hoped that to avert the storm
sb must see was brewing, ah would at least
Uke off tbe obnoxious hat and lay it on tbe
table. She ltd no such thing, but stood re
garding me with tbe sum mute wonder as
during my former efforts. Again and again
1 demanded the hat's removal, but received
nothing in r-ply but a cold stare. At last,
giving way to all tbe violene I felt and a
good deal I .lid not feel, 1 rained my stick,
and, sweepit.g it side wise, laid the hat amass
of velvet an i feathers without form and void,
at tbe other end of the room.
What followed was so sudden, so unexpect

remember h iw it occurred. At any rate, at
a call from my wife, two men entered from
