ures of speech. She expresses
pleasure over a book with: "It was
like a sunbeam stealing into my
souL" A musical treat, if the melody
is soft and sweet, she descnbes a3
"peaches and cream."

come suspicious of her figures of
speech. He has discovered that when
the music is "peaches and cream"
she immediately proceeds to the
kitchen to get something to eat A
few evenings ago, when he had play
ed a particularly pleasing number on
the piano, she commended it by say
ing that "it had the quality of pure
gold." Then she struck him for
money for a new spring suit
Now, every time he sits down to
the piano, he is afraid to play any
thing with speed and volume for fear
she will interpret it as "the delight
ful rush of a motor car." .
