ran around loose in society generally. I met one the

"It is easy enough to run across animal traits in
.human nature," sniffed the Qld Maid-,"They are quite
plentiful. Did this human pstrich have the proyeibial
ostrich digestion and so as a consequence gobble every
thing in sight?"
"No. I was not thinking of that trait. But you
have heard of the way ostriches stick their heads in the sand and think
they ar$ hidden, when all the time the rest ot their hideous, uiigainly
body is in full view?"
The Old Maid nodded. . .
"She reminded me of that trait of the ostrich. She refused to fee
certain faults of her own or else thought that she had cleverly covered
them up and so evidently believed nobody ever saw them, when all the
time they were as plain as the nose on your face. For instance,' she
really had a downright malicious streak in her. She told a very unkind
story about some one, but prefaced it by saving it was too good a joke
to keep. It was no joke at all. But she just wanted to covr up her de
sire to tattle. And so she tried to make us believe she was entirely in
nocent of any such intention or else so guileless that she really thought
her story a joke."
"You often run across people like that," agreed tht Old Maid.
"1 heard a woman say the other day, "It's awful selfish of me to sit
here and eat all this cake," and then she gobbled all the cake in s.ight.
"I suppose she thought we wouldn't think her. selfish if she pretend
ed she thought herself so, or that anyway, we would excuse it."
"Yes, there are people who also trv to throw dugt in your eyes in
that way," admitted the Clubwoman, or else as I sy, it, is a matter
of sticking their heads in the sand and refusing to see their conduct
for what it really is and so of believing nobody else sees it either.
When in reality, it is in plain suht in all its ugliness." .
"You ought to let them know they don't deceive you," sniffed
the Old Maid. "Then maybe it would break them of the habit, 'For my
I part when anybody tries that little game on me. I tell them in plain
j language that they are not hoodwinking me a bit. I have a friend who
does and says all sorts of unkind things and then thinks pecause she
contesses her fault that her conduct ought to be overlooked, But. I .tell
her very plainly that to say she is sorry for a tiling and then to go and
do it right over again doesn't impress me in the least with her repen
tance, and that if she wants me to believe she really regrets her con
duct she needs to stop doing it. I think I would be really helping her
to tool herself if I overlooked and forgave her every time. She would
get to thinking she could do anything she pleased, so she asked par
don for it afterward."
"I guess you are right," admitted the Clubwoman. 'But it's odd
how thinking people can believe they fool othen by such a course."
"There are precious few thinking people these days," sniffed the
Old Maid. "Or if they do exercise their gray matter at all,' they only
stir the surface about a sixteenth of an inch deep."
