IN WOMAN'S WORLD
Algernon Paget regretted not knowing Elsie, but he remembered Rollo.
There were more Rollo books than there were Elsie Dinsmores. Algernon
Paget Allowed Rollo from the age of 5 to full maturity. He said he west
with Rollo, then abroad, to England and through France; and finally
went around the world. Algernon Paget pursuing faithfully. He left
very widely traveled person, who may still be traveling for all Alger
non Pasret knows. Then there were Oliver Optic's books. Moral in tone,
rather than geographically instructive. They were "Haste and Waste,"
•Poor, but Proud," "Rich and Humble/ and others, all bound in brown.
This reminded him that the family set of Rollo was bound in bright blue
-.-ith/attenuated gold letters on the back. So was "The Spectator."
similarity led him into difficulties. When he had finished -Rollo in;
Franco" he found a volume that seemed to be one of the set. The print was i
fine and there were no illustrations, but the cover was all it should have ,
been, so Algernon Paget attempted 'The Spectator." He read pages, with.
strangely, no mention of Rollo, and a singularly unfamiliar atmosphere, and
finally gave it up. Rollo had failed him, he believed. Outgrown him. and he
had no u-c for the sort of book he lived in now. It was a literary tragedy
of his youth.
The girl spoke of Tennyson and Longfellow. A favorite was the "Psalm
of Life," because its pessimism appealed to her. She recited it at school and
perfectly remembered that "Tell me not in mournful numbers"' was merely
a graceful line of introduction to her understanding, while the rest of the
verse affirmed, in hopeless and beautiful melancholy. "Life is but an empty
dream, And the soul is dead that slumbers, And things are not what they
seem " She always said the lines very sadly.
Algernon Paget had recited "The Burial of Sir John Moore" in his day,
and was persistently corrected for saying "His corpse to the ramparts we
hurried' , for "corse," though he couldn't grasp why. He was fond of martial
poems, and sometimes read. "At midnight in his guarded tent, the Turk lav
dreaming of the hour when Greece, her knee in suppliance bent, should
tremble at his power," without ever knowing what suppliance was. It went
on something about dearth of women's tears. But this, the girl told Algernon
Paget, was a mistake. The dearth of women's tears was in Algiers, not
Turkey. It was where the strldier of the legion lay dying. And Algernon
Paget said possibly it v

lUDFIELD IEGUUTOa €0., Atbate, G^ r
dinary 10 commandments, but appear to take a cer
tain sentence in the bible for their special command, and
that sentence is, "To him that hath shall be given."
One of the families in our neighborhood is very
well to do and owns" a beautiful touring car. Their
neighbors on one side are also well to do and certainly
could own an atitomobile if they wished. Their neigh
bors on the other side are lovely people but not at all
well off. The people with the touring car appear to be
on equally friendly terms with both families and yet
live times out of six if they take any one with them in
the car it is the people who can afford to own or hire
a machine for themselves. -*
Isn't it queer? And yet you will see this same tendency repeated
again and again.
'"Really we haven't taken out our car for a week," I heard a wealthy
woman say the other day. "Oh, yes, I know its lovely weather, it isn't that,
but the Crowell's insisted that we come in their car, so we didn't use
"To him that hath shall be given."
Think how much it would have meant to some of the automobileless
friends of both of these families to have been taken out into the country
in these lovely autumn days.
Again, some rich people who were going to an athletic event proudly
displayed passes some influential friend had given them. It is a queer little
quirk in human nature, by the by. that the average man is crazy about a pass
of any kind. It doesn't matter if he is a millionaire and the pass is worth
only a quarter, he is as elated as a child to obtain it—l suppose because,
rich or poor. we all feel that we have fooled the fates when we get some
thing for nothing. But to return to my theme. I happen to know that the
influential friend knew half a dozen people—l wasn't one of them—who
were wild to attend that event and couldn't afford to buy tickets.
A rich old woman whose only relatives were two families of con
died the other day. One of the families was already wealthy, the other
poor. Of course, you know what happened. She left the bulk of her wealth
to the family that was already wealthy, and bequeathed a few keepsakes
to those to whom a little of her money would have meant so much. And
yet she had been on equally friendly terms with both families.
It's a very queer old world, isn't it?
I don't thing if we were wealthy we'd do the same, do you?
