"The butler came in with the
food which apparently did not
please the master of the house. He
spoke his mind freely and harsh

"The maid burst into tears: she
went in to scold the cook, and
during the subsequent argument,
slapped the cook's face. The cook
in her anger, snatched the food
away from the butcher boy, who,
on his way out, kicked the cat
down the back steps.

* . . . Hats Off to Aunt Julia
Having Just come from France,
and feeling very continental, I
bent over and kissed Aunt Julia's
hand. She blushed like a girl.
"You mustn't try to flatter an
old lady," she said.
But it was no attempt at flat
tery; it was an act of reverence.
She is a member of the noblest
clans in the world.
I had been reading, on the boat,
a book about the Bronte family.
Mr. Bronte was a self-centered
country parson, who wore out his
wife by making her the mother
of six children in six years. Left
the motherless brood on his hands,
he cast around for help, and
thought of his wife's maiden sis
ter. She, poor thing, was living
peacefully in a lovely little town,
with an income sufficient to pro
vide comfortably for her simple
wants. There was every selfish
reason why she should stay just
where she was.
Yet, at this summons, she did
not hesitate. She cast aside every
personal consideration, came down
to the bleak parsonage in its ugly
part of England and proceeded,
for the rest of her life, to devote
herself to those children.
How many million of similar in
stances have there been in his
tory! What a priceless wealth of
affection is poured out on the
other people's children by aunts
and nurses and cooks and teachers
to whom Fate gives no children
of their own! How could human
ity conduct its existence without
I thought of these things as I
watched Aunt Julia wrap up her
niece and hurry away. I lifted my
hat reverently and waved them
