The Bitter Root valley is covered with three feet of snow—the largest fall for years. Old timers have to go back over twenty years to find a pre cedent for it. The thermometer, too, has been guilty of an incredible breach of regularity. The mercury has made several desperate efforts to touch bottom, falling to thitty degrees be low. It is all disconcerting to the real estate men, who, during the summer months, detailed to land buyers the freedom of the "banana belt" from the snow and zero weather of other climes.

Mrs. Fink ha; Mrs. Cassidy's Hat, one flight below. I "Ain't it a beaut?" said Mrs. Cassidy. She turned her face proudly for her friend Mrs. Fink to see. One eye was nearly closed, with a great greenish purple bruise around It. Her lip was cut and bleeding a little, and there were red finger marks on each side of her neck. "My husband wouldn't ever think of doing that to me," said Mrs. Fink, con cealing her envy. "I wouldn't have a man," declared Mrs. Cassidy, "that didn't beat me up at least once a week. Shows he thinks something of you. Say, but that last dose Jack gave me wasn't no homeo pathic one! I can sec stars yet. But he'll be the sweetest man iu town for the rest of the week to make up for it. This eye is good for theater tickets and a silk shirt waist at the very least." "I should hope," said Mrs. Ftnk, as suming complacency, "that Mr. Fink is too much of a gentleman ever to raise his hand against me." "Oh, go on, Maggie!" said Mrs. Cas sidy, laughing and applying witch hazel. "You're only jealous. Your old man is too frapped and slow to ever give you a punch. He just sits down and practices physical culture with a newspaper when he comes home. Now, ain't that the truth?" "Mr. Fink certainly peruses of the laugh of the guarded and happy nia tron - with the a,r of Cornelia exhib papers wnen ne comes Home," acknowi-1 edged Mrs. Fink, with a toss of her henil, "but he certainly don't ever make no Steve O'Donnell out of me j Ju t to amuse himself—that's a sure thing." Mrs Cassidy laughed the contented j itlng her jewels she drew down the 1 collar of her kimono and revealed an other treasured bruise, maroon color eJ eJged with ollve and orange , bruise now nearly well, but. still to now nearly well, memory dear. Mrs. Fink capitulated. The formal light in her eye softened to envious admiration. She and Mrs. Cassidy had been chums in the downtown paper box fa '. ry before they lmil married, one year before. Now she and her man occupied the flat above Maine and her man. Therefore she could not put on airs with Maine. "Don't it hurt when he soaks you?" asked Mrs. Fink curiously. "ITurt!" Mrs. Cassidy gave a so prano scream of delight. "Well, say, did you ever have a brick house fall on you? Well, that's just the way It feels—just like when they're digging you out of the ruins. Jack's got a left that spells two matinees and a new pair of Oxfords—and his right! Well, It takes a trip to Coney and six pairs of openwork, silk lisle threads to make that good." "Bui what does he beat you for?" Inquired Mrs. Fink, with wide open eyes. "Silly !" said Mrs. Cassidy indulgent ly. "Why, because he's full. It's gen erally on Saturday nights." "But what cause do you give him?" persisted the seeker after kuowledge. "Why, didn't I marry him? Jack comes in tanked up, and I'm here, ain't I? Who else has he got a right to beat? I'd just like to catch him once heating anybody else! Sometimes it': because supper ain't ready, and some times it's because it is. Jack ain't particular about causes. ne just lushes till he remembers he's married, and then he makes for home and does me up. Saturday nights I just move the furniture with sharp corners out of the way, so I won't cut my head when he gets his work in. He's got a left swing that jars you. Sometimes I take the count in the first round, hut when I feel like having a good time during the week or want some now rags I come up again for more pun ishment. That's what I done last night. Jack knows I've been wanting a black silk waist for a month, and I didn't think just one black eye would bring it. Tell you what, Mag, I'll bet you the Ice cream he brings it to night." Mrs. Fink was thinking deeply. "My Mart," she said, "never hit me a lick in his life. It's just like you said. Maine; he comes in grouchy and ain't got a word to say. He never takes me out anywhere. lie's a chair warmer at home for fait* He buys me things, but lie looks so glum about it be 'em." idy slipped au arm around her chum. "You poor tiling!" she said. "Put ev erybody can't have a husband like Jack. Marriage wouldn't be no failure if they was all like him. These dis contented wives you hear about—what they need is a man to come home and kick their slats in once a week and then make It up in kisses anil chocolate creams. Ttaat'd give 'em some interest in life. What I want is a masterful man that slugs you when he's jagged and hugs you when lie ain't jagged. Preserve me from the man that ain't got the sand to do neither!" Mrs. Fink sighed. tb;U i U( , Vl , r Mrs. Cn The hallways were suddenly filled with sound. The door flew open at the kick of Mr. Cassidy. His arms were occupied with bundles. Maine flow and hung about his neck. Her sound eye sparkled with the love light t lia t sliines in the eye of the Maori maid when she recovers cons iousness in the hut of the wooer who has stunned and dragged her there. "Hello, old girl!" shouted Mr. Cas sidy. He slieil his bundles and lifted her off her feet in a mighty hug. "I got tickets for P.arnum & Bailey's, and if you'll bust the string of one of them bundles I guess you'll find that silk waist. Why, good evening, Mrs. Fink! I didn't see you at first. How's old Mart coming along?" "He's very well, Mr. Cassidy, thanks," said Mrs. Fink. "I must be going along up now. Mart 'll be home for supper soon. I'll bring you down thaï pattern you wanted tomorrow. Manic. Mrs. Fink went up to her flat and had a little cry. It was a meaningless cry. the kind of cry that only a woman knows about, a cry from no particular cause, altogether an absurd cry—the most transient and the most hopeless cry in the repertory of grief. 'A by had Martin never thrashed her? Ho was as big and strong as Jack Cassidy. Did he not care for her at all? He never quarreled. He came home and lounged about, silent, glum. idle. He was a fairly good provider, but he ig nored the spices of life. Mrs. Fink's ship of dreams was be calmed. Her captain ranged between plum duff and his hammock. If only he would shiver his timbers or stamp his foot on tlie quarter deck now and then! And she hail thought to sail so merrily, touching at ports in the De lpctable isles! But now, to vary tlie figure, she was ready to throw up the 1 sponge, tired out. without a scratch to show for all those tame rounds with her sparring partner. For one moment phe almost hated Mame—Marne, with her outs and bruises, her salve of presents and kisses, her stormy voy age with her fighting, brutal, loving mate. Mr. Fink came home at 7. He was permeated with the eurse of domes , ticity. Beyond the portals of his cozy j home he eared not to roam, to roam. i He was the man who had caught the street ear, me- anaeonaa rnnr nan swai lowrd its prey, the tree that lay as it had fallen. | "Lik» the supper. Mart?" asked Mrs. Fini:, who had striven over tt. "M-m-m-yep," grunted Mr. Fink. After supper he gathered his newspa pers to road. He sat In his stockinged feet. I Arise, some new Dante, and sing me | the befitting corner of perdition for the j man who sittetti in the house in ids I stockinged feet! Sisters of patience | who by reason of tics or duty have j endured it m silk, yarn, cotton, lisle i thread or woolen—does not the new ! carlo belong? The next day was Labor day. The j occupations of Mr. Cassidy and Mr. ! Fink ceased for < no passage of the sun. Labor, triumphant, would parade and otherwise disport ilself. Mrs. Fink took Mrs. Cassidy's pat tern down early. Maine had on her new silk waist. Even tier damaged eye managed to emit a holiday gleam. Jack was fruitfully penitent, and there was a hilarious scheme for the day afoot, with parks and picnics and rilsener in it. A rising, indignant jealousy seized Mrs. Fink as she returned to Lor flat above. Oh, happy Maine, with lier bruises and her quick following halm! But was Maine to have a monopoly of happiness? Surely Martin Fink was as good a man as Jack Cassidy. Was his wife to go always unbelabored and uncaressed? A sudden, brilliant, breath less idea came to Mrs. Fink. She would show Maine that there were husbands as able to use their fists and perhaps to be as tender afterward ns any Jack. The holiday promised to be a nominal one with the Finks. Mrs. Fink had the stationary washtubs in the kitchen filled with a two weeks' wash that had been soaking overnight. Mr. Fink sat in ills stockinged feet reading n news paper. Thus Labor day presaged to speed. Jealousy surged high in Mrs. Fink's heart, and higher still surged an auda cious resolve, if her man would not strike her—if lie would not so far prove his manhood, his prerogative and his interest In conjugal affairs, he must be prompted to his duty. Mr. Fink lit ills pipe and peacefully rubbed an ankle with a stockinged too. lie reposed in the state of matrimony like a lump of unblended suet in a pudding. This was his level Elysium— to sit at ease vicariously girdling the world in print amid the wifely splash ing of suds and the agreeable smells of breakfast dishes departed and din ner ones to come. Many ideas were far from Lis mind, hut (he furthest one was the thought of heating Lis wife. Mrs. Fink turned on the hot water and set the washboards in the suds. Up from the fiat below came tin» gay hui 'h of Mrs. Cassidy, it sounded like ft taunt, a flaunting of her own hap piness in the face of tlie unslugged bride above. Now was Mrs. Fink's time. Suddenly she turned like a fury upon the man reading. "You lazy loafer!" she cried. "Must I work my arms off washing and toiling for the ugly likes of you? Are you a man, or arc you a kitchen hound?" Mr. Fink dropped Ids pup. r, motion less from surprise. She feared Unit 1 k> would not strike—that the provoca tion had been insufficient. Shi' leaped at him and struck him fiercely in tlie face with her clinched hand. I^ that instant she felt a tlirill of love for him such as she had not felt for many a day. Rise up, Martin Fink, and come into your kingdom! Oh, she must feel of Lis hand now just to the weight of Lis hand now just to show that lie cared—just to show tliat he cared! Mr. Fink sprang to his feet. Mag gie caught him again on tlie jaw with a wide swing of lier other hand. She closed her eyes in that fearful, bliss ful moment before Lis blow' should come. She whispered ids name to her self. She leaned to the expected shock, hungry for it. In the flat below Mr. Cassidy, with a shamed and contrite face, was pnw dering Maine's eye in preparation for their junket. From the flat above came tlie sound of a woman's voice, high raised, a bumping, a stumbling and a shuffling, a chair overturned— unmistakable sounds of domestic con flict. "Mart and Mag scrapping?" postulat ed Mr. Cassidy. "Didn't know they over Indulged. Shall I trot up and see if they need a sponge holder?" One of Mrs. Cassidy's eyes sparkled like a diamond. The other twinkled at least like paste. "Oh, oh," she said softly and with I wonder if I till 1 go up and . cut im . auillgi in the feminine ! ... ■ -- . j | ! t j j j i | | ; ( ejaculatory mam wonder if—wait, Jacl see!" Tip (he stairs she sped. As her foot struck the hailway above out from Ilie kitchen door of lier fiat wildly flounced Mrs. Fink. "Oh, Maggie." cried Mrs. Cassidy in a delighted whisper, 'did lie? Oh.did he?" Mrs. Fink ran and laid her face upon her chum's shoulder and sobbed hope lessly. Mrs. Cassidy took Maggie's face be tween her hands and lifted it gently. Tear stained it was, flushing and pui i ing. but its velvety, pink and white, becomingly freckled surface was un j scratched, uubruised, unmarred by the recreant fist of Air. Fink. "Tell me, Maggie," pleaded Marne, ! "or I'll go in there anil find out. I What was it? Did he hurt you? What I did he do?" Mrs. Fink's face went down again despairingly on the bosom of her friend. "For Gawd's sake, don't open that door, Mame!" she sobbed. "And don't ever tell nobody—keep it under your hat. He—he never touched me, and— he's — oh, Gawd — he's washin' the clothes—he's washin' the clothes!" n lX Ne» io k Man who had just returned from atrip through the west said, ' I have al ways known this w < .< great citv; now I know why it is great."
