Written for tlie Graphic
The Other Side or the Story
BY THEOPHILUS BRICGS ESQ
In the Graphic of Nov 4th there
appeared a story a very good story
too but there was one fault in it viz
Teas not true
Now who ever heard of a man a
lawyer too leaving his office of his
own free will to take the charge of the
kitchen wherein his better half holds
sway If any one has heard of it let
him raise his right hand for fhe day of
miracles is here This wonderfully
sensible amiable generous gentle
manly Hon Jno Christopher Constant
who so the story goes martyrized
himself for three quarters of a day over
the unfathomable mysteries of the dish-
pan and the intricacies of the range
what shall we do for him Shall we
erect a monument to his memory
No but let me tell his story as I know
it You know the two men who saw
the shield were each positive about its
color one said tis blue the other
said tis red But each looked at
different sides of it There is also two
sides to his story One side you have
already heard and now I will try to
tell the other side How I long for the
rhyming pen of a Victor or a Lyn
don that I might portray in magic
verse the transactions of that memor
able day when Mrs John Christopher
got at one and the same time
out of her temper and her
normal element Like most ladies
who havent enough to do to keep them
busy and to properly employ their
minds she pined and pined and pined
for a mission When the Hon John
brought home fish for breakfast she
wanted steak and vice versa The
morning meal was enlivened by ner
complaints and her forehead was dis
figured by the remains of yesterdays
bangs In short Mrs John looked as
near like a scare crow as it was possi
ble for a pretty woman to look
Now mind all who read this story
I am telling the plain unvarnished
truth
Now John whined Mrs C
I do feel so miserable this morning I
can hardly get up when I am down
My poor head Ah me If I only
had such a nice easy time as you do
just to go down to the office and sit
with my feet on the mantle piece and
smoke a cigar and read the daily pa
pers and talk to other lazy men who
drop in Dear dear A woman
man has such a hard time of it and the
are so unfeeling And overcome
bv her lugrubrious reflections she ap
plied her square of cambric
to her eyes There were no
tears there but the action was sufficient
to arouse her husband from his apathe
tic indifference Now the Hon John
could talk when he tried and though
hissentences were short they express
ed his mind in a forcible manner
Looking at his agitated spouse with
what he tried to make an indignant ex
pression It was a grimace instead
He said sternely
Mary you act and talk like a big
fool
Now John that is the way you al
ways talk when I try to reason with
you I just wish I had your work for a
day and you had to stay in the kitchen
youd see then who had an easy time
of it There is nothing to do all in the
office only answer a few questions and
if there was anything I didnt under
stand why I could get the office boy to
look in die dictionary for jt That
tells everything anv one needs to
know
Oh yes you silly woman thats all
you know about it Are you so green
that you think it will tell you what
advice to give when John Smith
and Tom Jones fall out about their
cattle
Id know that little without the die
tionarv Id tell them to settle their fuss
and go home like sensible men
Yes youd play whaley Where
would mv profits come from if I did
that way No it is my business to
take 5 for my advice and Id advise
em to sue so I could get a fee Pret
ty mess youd make of it
Irs John was in the sulks by this
time but she came out of them after
her husband leftj and as soon as the
housework was completed which did
not occupy over two hous she donned
her best dress and her pretty new
spring hat and after re curling her
bangs and burning her forehead she
set out for a lound of calls returning
just in time to prepare dinner When
Mr Constant came in punctually at
two he found his wife in tears
What is the matter Maty are you
sick he kindly inquired
Yes Im sick and I never expect
to be any better whimpered the un
reasonable woman My work is so
very fatiguing that I am breaking down
under if If I only had your good
time then I could rest But women
all have such hard times and their hus
bands dont care
I wish to the Lord you did have my
good time Youd sing a different
song If you want to take my place
to morrow you can and Ill stay in the
kitchen Well both make a magnifi
cent failure too just as people always
do when they undertake to do some
thing they are totally ignorant of
If you think I dont know anything
I wonder you married me You seem
ed to think I was smart enough then
You agreed to everything I said when
you was doing your courting
You were sensible then and would
hznoTu if you would keep away from
that detestable Mrs Scatterbrain She
is the one that puts these silly notions
about Womans Rights and a
Mission and Affinities andallthat
confounded trash into your head A
married womans miision is at home
and the sooneryou come to that con
clusion the better it is for both of us
It is all right for girls who
are getting their education to
study law or medicine or any other
trade they have a liking for But a
married woman has already elected her
life work and when she forgets that
and wanders off after some ism orology
or ation she is in danger of losing what
happiness she already has Now if
you want to change work with me to
morrow just saj so
Yes I will change and be glad of
the chance I am not afraid of failure
and I dont want a schedule of the
work either for I will know what to do
when it comes
The morning of trial came and after
breakfast Mrs Constant went to the
office while her liege lord remained at
home in the capacity of cook and gen
eral house maid The dishes were
transferred to the dumb waiter and
Jlr Constant was triumphantly lower
ing it to the kitchen when one of the
pulleys broke the waiter caught and
ne found it impossible to stir it Go
ing below he attempted to let it down
gently when it got ahead of him and
came down with a crash scattering
the dishes in all directions And he
gathered up of the fragments twelve
baskets full
Saves washing em anyhow he
said to himself and putting on his hat
he went out to the nearest china shop
and ordered a full set to replace the
broken one On his way he met a
cousin who was on her way to visit his
wife
Im glad that youve come was
his salutation for Im in a devil of a
mess Mary is in one of her spells
and we have changed work for to day
Here is the key I wish you would go
in and make the beds and go through
the whole house and fix everything
straight Ill be back in a few min
utes He hurried away and the
cousin proceeded to the house By
the time Mr Constant returned she
had everything in apple pie order
Shall I get dinner she inquired
I would like the fun for Mary has
everything so convenient I like to
cook when I can have everj thing to
my mind
Pity more women liked to cook It
is getting so now-a-days that women
think cooking disgraces them I be
lieve I will recommend you to Briggs
He said the other day that Jie would
never marry unless his wife could cook
a good dinner If the Hon John
could have seen the blush which man
tled her cheek at this remark he might
have thought this offer superfluous
But he did not see
Yes you may get dinner I ordered
Warder to send up dinner for four and
invited Briggs to make the fourth He
is going around to the office and will
come up with Mary Go to work at the
dinner and I will step around to War
ders and countermand the oHier
Mr Constant went out and on his
way back encountered his wife return
ing accompanied by Briggs But
judge of his surprise when he saw on
the countenance of Mrs C unmis
takable signs of tears while Briggs
seemed almost burstingwith repressed
laughter
Whats the matter of you two V he
inquired You look as though yon
had been having a fight and Mary was
whipped One of you looks trium
phant and the other sulky I want to
know what it all means
VOL II NO 29
Dont ask us now my friend or
well have a comedy herein the street
Wait until your perfect dinner is on the
table and we are seated around enjoy
ing your splendid cooking then and
not till then will I will disclose to you
the emotions that agitate my soul
Together they proceeded to the
house where they were met by the
cousin with the anouncement that din
ner was ready After being seated
Briggs gravely inquired Will Mrs
Mary Constant say grace
Oh I know you are dying to tell all
you know Well go on It will not
take you long said Mrs Constant
spitefully
With your permission Madame You
see my christian friends I called in at
the office on purpose to get an invita
tion to dinner I found Mrs C in
tears and two men from the rural dis
tricts in a violent quarrel using oaths
and vulgar slang quite freely Mrs
C had ordered them to leave and they
had refused when I arrived I met the
office boy going for a policeman He
soon arrived and walked them off to a
safe place where they could swear at
each other without disturbing other
people Goldsberry came in a few
minutes afterwards to ask you about
that divorce case and Squire Mary
told him to go home and make up with
hiswife and to quit getting drunk and
abusing her and that he would not
want a divorce You ought to have
seen him He jumped up as white as
a sheet and stood staring at us for a
minute then exclaimed By George
I believe you are right Ill try it
and shot out of the door and started
home as fast as he could walk Thus
endeth chapter first How did you pro
gress We must hear that too
Mr Constant related his experience
not failing to relate Briggs remark
abouthavingawife who could cook
Briggs looked at the cousin a moment
and then said Your recommend
would be all right only you are a little
late The day is already set when I
shall have your cousin for my cook
That day dear reader is passed and
as I was fully acquainted with the trials
and tribulations experienced by Mr
and Mrs Constant in their change of
duties I concluded to let the truth be
told and now you can judge who was
most to blame
Rev Dr Tallage ei Life Iisiraice
We trust the following from a late
sermon by Rev Dr Talmage will not
be directly applicable to any of our
readers but there are some plain state
ments and suggestions that are worth
the consideration of every one
Some of you are making a swash
in life and after a while you will die
leaving your families beggars and will
expect us ministers of the Gospel to
come and lie about ycur excellencies
but we will not doit
If you send for me I tell you what
my text will be He that provideth not
for his own and especially those of his
own household is worse than an in
fidel
In this day God has mercifully al
lowed those 01 us who have a limited
income to make provision for our fam
ilies thro the great Life Insurance
Companies By some self denial on
our part we can make this provision
for those we leave behind us
Is there anything so helpless as x
woman whose husband has just died
when with her children at her back
she goes out to fight for bread
Shall she become a menial servant
in some one elses household No
not the one who has been relying on
your arms all these years and filling the
household with joy and delight
Shall she sew for a living God
knows they get but six or eight cents
for making garments Ah no you
had better have your coffin made large
enough to take all your family with
you into that land where they neither
freeze nor starve
How a man with no surplus of es
tate but still with enough money to pay
the premiums on a Life Insurance pol
icy can refuse to do it and then look
his children in the face and say his
prayers at night on going to bed ex
pecting them to be answered is a mys
tery to me that I never have been able
to fathom
