our betrothul survived it, and when
1 returned to the city all wai made
up between us.
It looked as if we should have
April weather after this, but one
evening another wind came up a
good deal fresher than am thing wo
had yet experienced and ended in a
tornado. A certain performance at
the theater was to be given that 1
wished very much to see. 1 bought
two aeats and telephoned Wilbur
that I wished him to go with me to
the play, lie replied that he had a
business j,'Ugageuient for the even
ing and couldn't go. 1 asked him
w hat I should do, aud he replied—
through the telephone, mind you,
so that the whole world could hear
— that he was too busy to advise me
and that if 1 intended to rely on
him through life for little things
like that he would carry a load.
That provoked me. Before 1 had
time to get over my huff I had tele
phoned to Ed Tucker and asked him
to be my attendant. Lie said he
should be delighted. 1 had no soon
er received his answer than I was
called up by Wilbur to say that he
had succeeded in putting off his
business engagement and would be
with me for the theater.
llow could I be expected to know
what to say to him at once aud over
a telephone? I didn’ t sav anything
but “ “ W
Well” or “ All right” or some
thing like that, aud he, being in a
hurry, shut me off.
I couldn’ t make up my mind what
to do in the matter, being rather
weak about such things, and half an
hour before it was time to go to the
play Ed drove up in a carnage and,
carrying a bouquet of beautiful
flowers, ran up the steps. 1 met
him at the door and took
ok him into
the drawing room. I was about to
explain the position to him when
along came Wilbur. When he saw
Ed his face looked like a thunder
cloud. He said nothing to Ed, but
he said a good deal to me. As soon
as ho paused I tried to explain to
him that I was engaged to go to the
theater with both of them. At that
moment he caught sight of the flow
ers lying on the table.
He looked from them to Ed, a
frightful light shining in his eyes;
then from Ed to me. He was the
angriest man I ever saw, and yet I
was not at fault at all. I hadn’ t
even had a chance to accept or de
cline the gift.
You should have heard his talk.
He told me that he had feared I
was a very weak woman, and he had
found me not even the consistency
of mush. I stood it as long as I
could, getting angrier every min
ute. Suddenly I pointed to the
door and, with flaming eyes and
“ G o!”
He subsided and started in to say
something pleasant, but I repeated
the word “ G o!” and said it again
and again till my voice was like a
trumpet sounding a charge. I be
came so infuriated that ho feared I
would throw something at him and
went out, saying he should call
again when I had cooled.
“ By Jove!” cried Ed. “ I’ ve long
been looking for a woman to brace
up my easygoing nature. I ’ ve found
her at last. Will you marry me ?”
“ Yes, I will.”
And I did.
And so it was that my engage
ment with Wilbur Ernst came in
like a lamb and went out like a
lion. My husband, who has turned
out to be a man who will fight for
his own way in everything, say# I
am the most obstinate woman he
ever knew. But one thing, to my
surprise, he admits — be declares
that no woman can make up her
mind quicker when she wishes to
than I, and he only regrets that I
won’ t give him time to come to his
own decisions before I spring mine
In my girlhood there were very
few fields open to women, and we
were not ambitious to occupy those
we were at liberty to enter. A wo
man would at that time rather rely
on a man for her living than on her
own exertions. 1 am one of those
who believe that women are fitted
for the home and are uot fitted
for making their own living. When
Wilbur Ernst came courting me 1
persuaded myself that I loved him,
possibly because it was to my inter
est to love him. lie was a strong
character. At any rate, he had a
strong will, and I suppose the for
mer cannot exist without the latter.
It seemed to me that he was just
the kind of husband for a weak wo
man like myself. I would be con
tent to let him breast the battle o f
the world for us both, and that was
just what he liked. I could see by
the way he talked that he had very
little respect for women’s opinions
in business matters, and he would
not be likely to consult me about his
affairs. But I realized that I could
not help him in this respect, and I
had no desire to do so. My depart-
ment would be the home, where I
would have all the responsibility.
It would seem from what I have
raid that Wilbur and I would be
especially fitted for each other. But
to make assurance doubly sure there
is always between couples the en
gagement period. Yet, I am free to
sav, sometimes, like the month of
March reversed, it comes iu like a
lamb and goes out like a liou. I re
fer to cases where couples quarrel
and break with each other before
Wilbur said that, of course, after
a betrothal with him I must drop
any of mv old flames. I had but one
— Edward Tucker— and he didn’t
count, because I considered him too
much like myself. At any rate, he
was very lazy. I thought my fiance
might have left it to me to drop my
old flames without requiring me to
do so. However, I intended to tell
Edward the next time he came to
see me that he needn’t call again.
But somehow I couldn’t. It was
1 who should have liked to mate
with Edward if he hadn’t been so
easy going. He hadn’t been making
love to me— at least not for some
time— and it would seem out of
place for me to dismiss a man who
was not a suitor. Besides, we had
long been friends. So when he call
ed again I utterly failed to say any
thing about his keeping away from
I made a clean breast of the mat
ter to Wilbur and saw the corners
of his mouth come down and his
chin stick out like the map of Spain.
He made a remark with just a little
bit of an edge on it, but I was
surprised that instead of being
strengthened I was nettled. He ad
mitted that the matter required of
me was embarrassing, but essential.
Doubtless I would screw my courage
up to the sticking point in time. I
didn’t say anything in reply, but
doubted that I -could screw up my
There wa« just a little March
breeze about this, but thus far there
had been so much April softness
that I didn’t think the season could
go backward and our courtship go
out with a blast.
About this time June came on,
