The widow Goodhue had come easl
from Michigan and nettled In a Con
necticut village. She was a childless
woman of forty-five, and the villagers
liked her looks and gave her welcome.
For five or six weeks all went well,
and then the widow broke out.
A villager who had done some paint
ing for the widow called for his money.
She opened lire on him at once. After
tongue lashing him for live minutes
sho picked up a club nnd drove him
from the premises. She had a garden,
and she had given a neighbor permis

and wondered if he had heard aright.

the widow ns she whirled him around

gone plumb crazy. The facts in tho
matter later reached the ears of Er.
Beazler, the oldest practitioner In the
county nud an acknowledged nuthorlty
on mental diseases, and he made a call
to see how bad the case was. He
found the patient seated on the floor
in tho middle of the room, with her
hair down and a broken chnlr beside
her. At the first glance he decided tlijit
she was crazy.

stared at each other for half a mlniiJe.

Deacon Watklns came from a distance
of nine miles to court her and win her
hand nnd carry her off to Medina. It
was all done in six weeks' time, and
none of the villagers posted the wooer
as to those strange spells, ne had
been a bridegroom for several weeks
and was still feeling mushy when one
of them came on nnd gave him the
surprise of his life, ne was cuffed
and kicked down cellar and upstairs
and out of the house, and for two days
he ate raw turnips and slept In the
barn. Then peace nnd love were re
stored and all went merrily. There
were four outbreaks before the deacon
began to think of divorce. Then he
went to his pastor to talk things over.
"Sho doesn't get hold of liquor?" ask

"Not n drop; not even cider."
"Was there Insanity In her family?"
"Sho says not."

"Y e s, kinder that is, I guess I do."
"Which means that your wife does."
The parson reflected for five min

and nodded nnd went home. Tho next
