EX PARTE

" What do you mean ?" she asked me.
" Why, your pretending to admire all that junk," I said.
" Junk! " said Florence. " That is one of the most beautifully furnished homes I have ever seen! "
And so far as I can recall, that was her last utterance in my presence for six nights and five days.
At lunch on Saturday I said: " You know I like the silent drama one evening a week, but not twenty-four hours a day every day. What's the matter with you? If it's laryngitis, you might write me notes." •
" I'll tell you what's the matter! " she burst out. " I hate this house and everything in it! It's too new! Everything shines ! I loathe new things ! I want a home like Mildred's, with things in it that I can look at without blushing for shame. I can't invite anyone here. It's too hideous. And I'll never be happy here a single minute as long as I live! "
Well, 1 don't mind telling that this kind of got under my skin. As if I hadn't intended to give her a pleasant surprise ! As if Wolfe Brothers, in business thirty years, didn't know how to furnish a home complete ! I was pretty badly hurt, but I choked it down and said, as calmly as I could :
" If you'll be a little patient, I'll try to sell this house and its contents for what I paid for it and them. It oughtn't to be much trouble; there are plenty of people around who know a bargain. But it's too bad you didn't confess your barn complex to me long ago. Only last February, old Ken Garrett had to sell his establishment and the men who bought it turned it into a garage. It was a livery-stable which I could have got for the introduction of a song, or maybe just the vamp. And we wouldn't have had to spend a nickel to make it as nice and comfortable and homey as your friend Mildred's dump."
Florence was on her way upstairs before I had finished my speech.
I went down to Earl Benham's to see if my new suit was ready. It was and I put it on and left the old one to be cleaned and pressed.
On the street I met Harry Cross.
" .Come up to my office," he .said. ," There's something in my desk that may interest you."
I accepted his invitation and from three different drawers he pulled out three different quart bottles of Early American rye.
Just before six o'clock I dropped in Kane's store and bought
