A House Wife Arraore. a Smrnn.
tr Her HaakaaC aa le Heme if Hlr.
A loving Moline wife hit upon the idea
of giving her husband a surprise when he
came from work the other even:ns. the
occasion being his birthday. Accords
ingly she invited a number of their
friends in to take su pper and spend the
evening in honor of the event. The
guests had arrived and with then th
brought a nice rocker to present to their
victim. Everything was , in readiness,
even to the table being laid for supper.
The surprise was to prove a treat shock
to the man, one that he would remember
and think over. So at every footstep
that was heard approaching the house
the expeclant visitors went into hiding.
This was kept jp for some time and
as they were despairing of his arrival a
step was heard outside. "Oh. here be
comes!'' exclaimed the wife, and in less
time than it takes to tell it everyone was
in hiding. But the wife was ;doomed to
bitter disappointment, for as the husband,
who is usually a strictly temperate man,
stumbled into the house he muttered
something about beinsr "in town" and
"out of sight." He had been out with
the boys. In common parlance he was
completely "paralyzed." His chin rested
upon his chest, and his legs refusing
longer to support him be sank by accident
into a convenient chair.
It is needless to add that the party was
not the brilliant success that had been
anticipated. The feelings of the poor
woman can be better imagined than de
scribed. The couple have not spoken a
word to each other since.
