When this was known, as it was almost immediately, for such bruises and such a black 5 eye as Susan’s cannot long be hidden, there was a general outcry. Not that a wife’s black eye was entirely unknown spectacle in the village, though it was rare one, most of the village couples being able to settle their disputes, if any, in private but the relative si!es of the couple made a difference. Sammy was so very big and tall and strong and Susie so slight and childish-looking that everyone who heard of or saw the black eye called out at once, #he great big bully, him$’ so far opinion was%& unanimous.'ut Susie did not take her whacking in the ordinary way. (ther wives who had in the past appeared with an eye blackened had always accounted for it by saying that they had been chopping firewood and a stick had flown up and hit them. )t was a formula well understood and recogni!ed and good manners demanded that it should be accepted at its face value. 'ut Susan gave no e*planation at all %5of her state. She went in and out of her cottage in her usual brisk and determined way about he daily affairs and asked neither sympathy nor advice of her neighbours.Several days had passed before it became known that with her black eye and bruises still fresh, she had gone to the +olice Station at andleford town and had taken out a summons against Sammy.#hen, indeed, the village had something to talk about, and talk it did. Some people professed to & horrified that a great, strapping young fellow like Sam should have been such a brute as to lay hands on his nice little wife, good mother and model housewife as she was, and far and away too good for him. #hey thought she did uite right to go to the police. )t showed her spirit, and that it did$ (therssaid Susan was a shrew as all of those thin, fair-haired vinegarish little women were bound to be, and nobody knew that that poor fellow, her husband, might have had to put up with. )t was nag, nag, 5 nag, they’d be bound, every moment he was at home and the house kept that beastly clean he had to take off his coal-heaving clothes in the shed and wash himself before he was allowed to sit down to his supper. #wo parties sprang uickly into being. #o one Sam was a brute and Susan a heroine, and if the other did not actually hold up Sam as a hero, they maintained that he was an ill-used young manand that Susan was a hussy. )t was a case of one uarrel breeding many./&.'ut Susan had another surprise in store for them. )n due course Sam came up before the ourt and was sentenced to one month’s imprisonment for wife-beating. Susan came home from the court and, still without saying a word, as to her intention to anyone, packed her three small children into the  perambulator, locked up the house, and marched off to andleford Workhouse, as it appeared she hadthen the right to do, having no official means of support while her husband was in prison. She could/5 uite well have stayed at home, for the tradesman would have given her credit and the neighbours would have helped, or she could have gone to her parents’ home in a neighbouring village, but she chose her own course. #he step lost her many of her warmest supporters, who had been looking forward to standing by her with sympathy and material aid, and caused the opposition to condemn her more fiercely. She said afterwards she did it to shame Sam, and in this no doubt she succeeded, for it 0&must have added to his humiliation to know that his wife and children were chargeable to the parish. 'ut the period spent in the poorhouse must have been punishment to herself as well. )t was common knowledge that life in such establishments was not a bed of roses for a respectable young woman.1owever, it all ended happily.
