Past Tense or ld

I'm sure there's a logical explanation that I'm missing on something:

I'm confused on when you would use the disjoined T to represent past tense for example the word Desired you use the disjoined T (section 53) but when you get to section 135 why is the word Mailed written m-a-ld instead of m-a-l-disjoined T?
