GOOD QLD HOLY DAYS
Isn't it just great to have the home circle once more unbroken to
have the boyn and .the girls back beside the fireside as they were when lit
tle children, years ago?
Pa's all spruced up- and ma's in such a fuss, you can hardly get a word
in edgewise. Even old. maid sister, who's inclined most times, to be a bit
bitter, is now touched with the prevailing spirit and in her. tenderness to
ward the littler ones discloses what some fool man is missing.
But it's the far-traveled elder brother who is the star of this reunion.
He's not a prodigal son, not by a long shot. Very little substance he has
had to waste in riotous living; ma trained him too well for him to want to
make a smudge that way. But he draws the fatted calf all right. And,
say, maybe you think he can't get away with it!
Then there's a little sister, too we mustn't overlook her. - Sis has
been down East to school. Getting pdlished or finished or something. Her
little head is very full of wondrous wise lore and the language she talks is
like it was lifted right out of the book. But it's good to have her home
again, even though the candy boxed and flowers which come to her by ex
press make us wonder if there's not a new home soon to be.
And so the merry days glide by, the truly holy days, when the best
in all of us gets dusted off and treated to exercise. How they fly! It
seems only yesterday that they began; and now they're almost over. But
there's this to cheer us. Another year's coming. Life would become tire
some if all its days were holidays.
