"Private .room in hotel ovslers, turtle

in dismay. "How ruuebdid It cost

"Tbe foolish fellow mtif Buffer or ,,be

"1 ran not lweiUiis way any. longer,
Busie," he, declared one day to bis patient
wife. "Look at thesexuums, only lit fur
a .pauper." ..
"1 think. they are very nice," replied
the cheerful HtUe wouiau, glancing at
the bright carpet, the exquisilu and spir
ited chromoa oh the pretty limed, walls,
and the largeluud of blootuiug Bowers
at Uie wiudow. Husie did . not know
that her own brave and comely face
would have qiado eveu a darksome cell a
place of brightness.
"And our food is simply execrable,"
went on tbe dissatisfied uiau, remember
ing the luxurious table to which he bad
always been accustomed.
"We have a wholesome plenty," re
turned Suaiu, losing for an instant Iter
divine sweetness of temper.
Instantly tbe "good fellow" became
amiable, for during this .trying time he
begun to comprehend that this gentle
cteature had a stronger will and better
brain .than his own, and that it might be
good for hiui to bend souieliuies to iter
wishes.
"There, pussy," lie said lovingly; Ml
did not mean to anger you, but this trou
ble is tajghty rovtgh, you know." ,
"Hichurd, do you love me.?" asked
Susie .abruptly.
' He opened his big, handsomejtes and
gazed al her in amazement.
"Love you, Susie 1 1 would diefor you
my darling gladly, willingly, if by that
you and our boys might be happy. Su
sie, when I married you I had Uut one
purpose for our future, I meant, my
love, that you should have every ease and
pleasure of life. I meant that all women
should envy you for your home and your
husband, for your jewels and fine gar
ments, your carriages and horses. But
I have faiJed in everything miserably
failed."
Uc bowed itis head upon Susie's knees
and she could feel the passionate quives
ing of bis frame and his hot teal's on Iter
hands. ,
After a mcnic-nt he raised bis head and
continued :.,,,...
"You uj(jy blame me for much, &uaie:
hut believe me, myreattst grief Ss for
you and the boys.. What you think my
fatal fondness for ,the luxuries and re
finements .of life .was taught me by my
father,' whets I btdieved to Ve exceeed
ingly wealthy, although he rej.iiiired me
to support fnyself when my college days
were over. I knew nolhiug of a grocer's
business why should I not have failed f
I Ought to have been satisfied with the
rent of ibe jplace, and el-uued nty pitsl
