FLASHES FROM "STARS"
"It is an open question," says William Collier,
"whether the married man had best take tho
blame upon himself after a quarrel with his
wife and endeavor to smooth matters over
peaceably or not. Sometimes the wife Is so
snippy and Indifferent after the poor man's
efforts that he regrets having taken this course.
I know a young couple of the stage to whom
Just this sort of thing happened.
"They had been quarreling, and tho young
husband, regretting it nnd bnln anxious to
'make up,' brought a little gift for tho wife.
" 'Edna,' he said, 'come here. Aren't yoil
curious to know what Is In this package?'
" 'Oh, not very,' replied Edna, belligerently,
as she glanced at the package In question. 'I
rather think I can endure the strain.'
" 'Well,' he said, coaxlngly, trying to win her
to good humor, it's something for tho one 1 Iovo
best In all tho world. Now, guess!'
" 'Indeed!' sniffed Echia, as she started to
leave the room. 'I suppose, then, It's that pair
of new trousers you said you needed.'
