His wife telephoned to the refreshment establishment, but the barkeeper told her the man she wanted was not there. (Diplomat, that barkeeper.) Then the wife went around in person, but was headed off. She returned home in tears, declaring she had been shamefully treated, and adding: "They wouldn't treat me that way out west, where women have the vote."
