A girl once played a cruel joke an
her mother, and this is how it hap
pened. She accidently found a love
j etter that her father had written to
j her mother in their halcyon days of
courtship. She read the letter to her
; mother, substituting her own name
and that of her lover. The mother
raved with anger and stamped' her
foot in disgust, forbidding her daugh
ter to have anything to do with a
man who would write such nonsensi
cal stuff to a girl. The girl then
J gave the letter to her mother to read
| and the home became suddenly so
* quiet that she could hear the snow
! flakes falling in the back yard.
