Sidney Laaier'a extravagant atmil "As
if a rose might aoaie how be a throatf
A rone and a throat! Tender, delicate
avenues, for the sweet odor and melody
of lire. Lincoln is sot all salt wells, she
can be the sweet south wind, wooing
the light!
Five year old. brothers are a blessing
frequently effectually disguised . I gave
mine, the redoubtable Rob, a pencil and
papers few minutes sgo, but he thinks
it would be so much nicer to use ink
aa I do and bis fingers fairly itch to
play" the typewriter. Mother tbinke
he shows decided literary tendencies, so
he does, if painting the cat's whiskers
with my red ink is any indication. He
was Tery disagreeably impressed yester
day by the spectacle of a drunken man
lurching by the house and bumping
against the fence. Yestsrdsy he asked
me what ailed him and I, seeking after
the manner of the ancients, to impress
a lesson thro' a horrible example, ex
plained to him. He said to Mother that
night, after hustling thro' his "ow I
lay me" "Mama, when I grow up to
be a man. I nerer shall drink whiskey
and hate to take the cuticure." Mer
ciful Fathers! That exclamation was
occasioned, by a trifling contretemps, a
moment cince. I wtntto hang OTer the
banisters an instant to find out who
rang the door bell and Rob seized the
opportunity and the ink bottle and
transferred the entire contents of the
last mentioned to b kilt suit. I
hustled him to the bath room and then
in impotent despair to Mother. The
ingratitude and calloubnees of parents
is proTecbiaL She looked Rob oer
with haughty displeasure and then aad
coldly: "I haven't a particle of pa
tience with your eternal scribbling,
Penelope." Naturally my muse does
not discriminate among the members of
my family and has deserted me in just
displeasure.
You, blessed as job are with a sympa
thetic echo in the shape of Jack, can
not possibly understand the lonesome
Dew of a solo part, lacking anything in
the shape of a Greek chorus. What is
it George Eliot says about the truly
great? Something concerning their be
ing always alone, and I, believe her.
Yours,
PlNELOPE.
