There was no doubt Billy was much devoted to his wife and the two were exquisitely happy with each of her, but Bill wasn't home all the time. For eight hours each day the husband had his office to look after and these were exceedingly lonesome hours for Mary, until one day the flat next door was rented by another young couple, with a little baby. The infant was sickly and Mary frequently took the child to her own flat and cared for it. One afternoon Billy returned earlier than usual and upon entering the apartment heard his wife uttering words of endearment and showering kisses upon someone. Billy's jealousy was immediately aroused and he had blood in his eye when he forced entrance to his wife's room. The little rival proved a surprise, but the incident touched a responsive chord in Billy's heart and husband and wife were more firmly united in love and kindness toward each other.
