TOO MUCH OF GOOD -THING

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.

"Well. dear, yea are right; the bill
