Wife Caught in Own Trap
Mrs. Hiram Jones, wife of a rich farmer living near Modovi, Wis., on Friday discovered evidence that her husband was on too good terms with the servant girl, and set a trap to catch him when he met the maid that night. Instead of the girl it was Mrs. Jones who was in the room. As the hour appointed drew nigh, a man's step stealthily approached, the door opened, and in a moment the waiting aggrieved wife was enfolded in a loving pair of arms and smothered with kisses. She endured the caresses for a moment or two, then struck a match she had concealed, and as the flicker of the match lighted up the face of the hired man, her husband was heard calling her.
