TOO MUCH OF GOOD -THING 1 Hundreds of cases of homes broken up by tile absence ot love hava found their way Into the court of domestle relatione, but the other day waa the tint time Judge Goodnow wa asked to decide a caae la which too much affection bad caused a husband to flea In terror. John Recklnger, a grain dealer, living at 4807 Oakland boulevard. Chicago, was compelled to leave home because his wits loved him too well. He didn't object to being loved, but be wanted a few minute spare time In which to eat, sleep and earn a living. Mrs. Becklnger, on the other hand, loved her spouse so much that she couldn't bear him out of her. sight. She followed him like a shadow. When Recklnger waa at work his wife would suddenly bob up and shower him with affection. When be leaat expected It he would be encompassed by her arm and a smacking kiss would resound on his cheek. On tha street, In street cars, no matter, where Becklnger went, ha could not escape the love of his Wife, so he finally left home. When arraigned on tha charge ot con tributing to the delinquency ot hla two children Recklnger asserted that he wa willing to support his wlfs and family and even live with them, but that his wife's lnfautuatloa for him made It Im possible for him to do either. But, Judge," exclaimed airs. Recklnger, clinging affectionately to her husband's arm. "JL want my husband. Judge you don't know now I lore that man. I don't want him to leave me tor a minute. I couldn't stand It If b did." 1 cannot force any husband to live with his wife." said tha court. "This seems to be a difficult situation. No wife ought to Interfere with her husband's business by following him around. On the other hand, a husband ought to Jolly hi wife aa much a possible." Recklnger waa then ordered to pay hla wife CM a month and tha couple left tha room with Mrs. Recklnger still clinging fondly to her husband. Whew." whistled Judge Gwodnow.
