"It Is an open crucstlon," says AA'illlam Collier,
"whether the married man had best take the
blame upon himself after a quarrel with his
wife and endeavor to smooth matters over
peaceably or not. Sometimes tho wife Is so
snippy and Indifferent after the poor man's
efforts that he regrets having taken this course.
I know a young couple of the stage to whom
Just this sort of thing happened.
"They had been quarreling, and the young
husband, regretting it and being anxious to
'make up,' bi ought a little gift for the wife.

" 'AVell. ho said, coaxingly, trying to win he?
to good humor, 'it's something for the one I love
best In all the world. Now, guess!'
