''incompatibility of temper."
Mr, Wiukington, who was some
years older than bis spouse, and
had not married until comparatively late in life, wasiinniovably
rooted to certain bachelor habits
of which Mrs. Winkingjt.on most
strenuously disapproved—especially his proclivity for flirtation.
And a particular casus belli in
this line had been introduced a
few months ago, when a certain
pretty widow, Mrs. Sturford-
Meade bv name, came to live in
the neighborhood.     Mr. Wink-! '■'•■   more

attentions which, in spite of his

Now Mrs. Winkington was of

Xow, Mrs. Winkinton's temper was none of the best, and to

when she had rather gone oul of

husband by consulting him at
all, nettled her into a violent

'O'n, of course, you don'l care

with angry sarcasm. ' 'Vou have

"Your mind is quite mule up on

she demanded, after an awful pause
during whicli slit* had vainly tried
to wither him with the glance uf
her "basilisk eye.''
"Quite, my pel," he replied, with
cheerful decision.
"Very well," she said, solstnnly,
and with an i.itonitlioti of portentous meaning. "Whatever happens after this, you wiil have yourself to thank for. Remember, lhere
are limits to wifely elidut'ttneel"
Then, without another word, she
drew herself up to her full height
arid marched out of tlie room with
stalely swing, banging the door
vi< lenily behind her.
When she was gone, Mr. Winkington threw himself buck in llis
chair with a sigh of relief, filled
and lighted his pipe, and puffed
awuy for some minutes in contemplative silence. A placid, though
noi particularly amiable, smile—
probably of satisfaction at ihe re-
-iili of lhe scene with bis wife—
played about bis lips. Naturally
of a phlegmatic disposition, he seldom f.aiiid much difficulty in keeping liis temper, especially when he
saw that he annoyed others by
duing so. And, knowing from experience that nothing irritated Mrs
Winkington so much us to meet
ber reproaches with placid indifference, he always assumed that air

With the exception of Victoria,
all the cities of the Northwest are
suffering from the usual winter
epidemic of burglaries and highway robberies. Victoria's exemption is due, no doubt, to the vigilance of tlie police force and the
fact that hoboes without money
lind it more dillictlt to reach here
than they do to reach the cities on
the Mainland. Victorians, however, should continue vigilant, for
no doubt as soon as the crooks
mate a haul in other cities they
will come here.

to dinner the other day. "There's

"And she wants to know if you

'em if you have."
All of these articles were given
to the boy, and the liawle's were at

"Pa wants to know if he can have

ma would like a cup of coffee an'

"Better send her the coffee pot
also," whispered Hawle to his wife
as she left the table to supply the

the dining-room.
"Henry forgot to ask for the loan
of your coffee pot when he got the
coffee an' maw would like it. Our
things ain't come yet, and we'd like
