Uncle By's Daily Love Story. a
He had been worried and cross for 11
a week and she had allowed her wire t
of discord to short circuit his cable t
twice during the breakfast hour. He -
had waited but a moment for her to r
come for her morning kiss, before t
taking his train for business. She had d
not come lpromptIly and he had gone E
away without the usual tokin of af
fection that marked their daily part
As a result she had been unhappy
and nervous all lay. An hour before
time for his return she had donned
the dress he liked best and was play- t
ing on the piano a love song they had
often sung together. When the train
whistled she wreathed her face in
smiles and took her place at the ball t
door to surprise him.
But she waited without his coming.
Then she began to imagine things.
He had been killed! She was positive
of it, and she threw herself on the
sofa and wept bitter and grief-stricken
tears. Eight o'clock struck and she
rushed madly down to the telegraph
office and wired the office where he
was employed, hoping to catch the
Janitor or some one who might know
of the accident. Then she returned
home and cried softly in her handker
chief-and waited.
Suddenly her mood changed to an
ger. lie was trying to pay her back;
he was staying down town merely to
punish her. It was cruel of him 'and
heartless. She would retire and go to
sleep! She would show him that she
was not to be humiliated in this man
She scarcely had touched the bed be
fore her grief and remor-a returned,
and the tears came so freely they wet
the pillow-and still he did not come.
Then she heard a strange step on the
sidewalk. It was the messenger to tell
her of the accident, or a friend to
break gently the news of his death!.
With a great outburst of sobbing,
she arose and answered the bell her
self. She could hardly mnuster courage
to pull aside the curtain of the door
and peep through the gltss.
Her worst fears were realized.
There in the dim light she recognized
Mr. Haskins, a mutual friend. Ie was
"My dear Mrs. -," he began.
"Your husband-"
"What has happened? Tell me!"
she begged.
"I am very sorry, but Ed asked me
to see you personally and tell you
that he has gone to St. Louis on busi
ness. Was called unexlpectedly and he
did not like to trust to a telegram for
fear it would be delayed and you
would be worried. At the station I
met Wlggsby, who is buying some
property for me-and-and I got so
interested in it, I forgot all about the
message until I had retired for the
night. Then I came over just as
quickly as I could. I'll send around a
big box of candy to-morrow and if you
tell Ed I forgot his message, I'll-I'll
do something dreadful."
"Never mind the candy, Mr. Has.

Thank you very, very much."
And a weary, nervous but re
lieved little wife returned to her bed
to vow that she would never, no.
never! quarrel with her husband
again, no matter how much the wires
got crossed.
