One of our Fifth avenue business

about handling shooting irons when
the occasion justifies it. They are a
newiy married couple and bave no
children neither a hired girl. The
husband attended lodge meeting a
few evenings since and did not ar
rive home at as seasonable an hour
as contemplated owing to the unu
sual amount of business the organi
cation had to dispatch. Several can
didates were initiated and a little
time followed. Hence it was getting
well along toward that hour when ail

light lowered and his wife asleep.
Not so; she was waiting. He applied
me latcn key and sauntered noise'
lessly through the hallway. Open
ing the door to the sitting room he
was startled at seeing his wife hold
ing on to a large nickel-plated con
vincer which lay on the table. He
asked for explanations.
'it was getting pretty late and I
thought it wouldn't do any harm as
a companion besides it gave me
courage. But what put me in mind
oi bringing it out was a racket on
the front porch about an hour ago
it sounded like as it someone was
inspecting the dooi lock. So I got
out the revolver and stood prepared

soaked from top to bottom and until
someone assisted him to the chore.
Then Mr. Langicldt was taken to
police headquarters, introduced to
the stove which keens the cooler

his garments got dried out. Langfcldt

a meritorious one. The company
