The Way "Richard Second" Re
ceived Dicky's Gift.

My mother-in-law was the first
one of the group in the dining room
to give utterance to the astonish
ment which was consuming all of
us at the ridiculous incongruity of
the present which Dicky had bought
for his year-old son. Her' voice
held the imperative note', which
marks extreme exasperation with
her, and I saw Dicky shrug his
shoulders in resignation to the "wa
ging" which he knew was inevitable.
"Have you taken leave of your
senses?" she demanded acidly. "Buy

the door leading to the kitchen,
Katie-and Jim were watching the
opening of Junior's birthday fete. I
saw Katie hastily avert her face, and
dodge behind Jim's broad shoulders,
knew that the girl was struggling to
keep down a burst of laughter, a
happening which would have been
fatal to the peace of the dinner.
"Nothing's too good for Richard

"I didn't need you to tell me thatl"
she snapped. -''But there are any

yet I found myself illogical
ly championing Dicky's cause, re
senting her criticism of him. Of
course, with a wary eye to the suc

than to oppose her view openly, but
I surreptitiously gave the arm near

and the inside of his cranium would

make a success of the career you

"Please, children, I'm starving to

as commissioner of the chamber by

along, get seated anyway. I'll prob

which confirmed my opinion that
there had been some sudden emo

that she shared my surmise. But lit
