He brought the fol- lowing tale back from the northwest and told It at the White House: A man there was who was in mortal fear of his wife, especially when he Indulged in spirits to excess and for- got to go home until the early hours of the morning. One night he drank tintil he became hilarious, and it was In the small hours of the morning that he reached his home. He gained an entrance without arousing his sleep- ing spouse. Shoeless he climbed the stairway, opened the door of the bedroom, en- tered and closed it after him without being detected. Just as he was about to get into bed his wife, half aroused troin her slumber, turned and sleepily eaid: "Is that you, Fido?" The husband, telling the rest of the etory, replied: "For once in my life I had real presence of mind. 1 licked jier hand."—Washington Herald.
