EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
BY H.E. SMITH
Mad In Spite Of Himself
"Everything goes wrong," said Mr. Tripler, laying down his knife and fork with the face of a martyr.
 There are some people in the world with whom "everything" seems chronically to go wrong; there are some whose first infantile wail is uttered in the minor key and who go on lamenting through life, and of this much abused class Mr. Nathan Tripler was a burning and shining light.
 "What's the matter, dear?" questioned Mrs. Tripler, who sat opposite her husband with a round-eyed baby on her knee, and two or three little ones clamoring for their share of the matutinal meal on either side of her.
Mrs. Tripler was a trim, neatly-made little woman, with blue eyes and flaxen hair—a woman who might have been pretty could she have divested herself of a certain frightened, apprehensive look that came over her face whenever her liege lord spoke or even looked toward her. Not that Dorothy Tripler was actually afraid—her husband had never beaten her nor used coercive measures, but when a man begins to find fault a woman never is easy in her mind lest some domestic screw should be waxing loose.
"I can't eat a single mouthful, Dorothy," croaked Mr. Tripler, dolefully. "Such cooking and such food! You may as well turn that new cook of  yours into the street at once."
"But Nathan, I-I am very sorry, but I cooked the breakfast myself, dear, this morning. Isn't it nice?" "Nice?" Yes—very nice for those who can digest leather and drink dishwater."
"The biscuits are fresh and hot, Nathan." "I don't want to be poisoned with hot bread." "And I thought the steak was unusually tender." No reply. Mr. Tripler had folded his arms and was gazing with an expression of abstracted despair at the ceiling.
"Will you have another cup of coffee?" timidly questioned his wife. "Coffee? Is that coffee? Really I thought it was hot water that had got into the urn by mistake!" "I will order some fresh made," said Mrs. Tripler, with her hand on the bell rope.
"You will do no such thing, ma'am if you please," said Mr. Tripler, shortly. "My appetite is completely destroyed." "Will you have an egg boiled?" "No." "There's some very nice ham in the pantry."
 "I dare say—there always is when I don't want it."
"I am very sorry, Nathan," said poor little Mrs. Tripler, despairingly.
