your mother gets in extra help, and

It was not impertinent, because it
was my best friend speaking. She is
just frank and sincere. She had

But she likes It. Christmas only

We said no more about that, but
after my friend bad gone I remem
bered her clear, frank eyes and the
way they had received my reply. They
had been slightly skeptical. I couldn't
j gat that skepticism out of my mind.
The result was that, after much
thought, I suddenly closed office a
whole week before Christmas, prac
tically kidnaped my youngest sister
away from her home in a nearby
city—that comfortable home with Its
full nursery, cook and nurse girl—and
whisked her away to the country to
give mother a little surprise.
At first I thought the surprise was
to turn out an unpleasant one. We
arrived in the early afternoon with
out warning. There was mother in a
huge apron, her hair tied up In a
towel, the front hall full of brooms
and mops, honsecleanlng. Ehe could

this 'fixing' alone. We're come to
fix for ourselves, and the horde that
follows on Christmas Eve." -
Well, at first mother simply wouldn't
bear of It We were to be company
and just wait till she got the rooms
we were to occupy aired and made up.
Since we were all there, well we must
stay. But we shouldn't drudge. She
guessed we worked hard enough, each
at our own particular kind of work,
all the year, not to have to work when
we came home.
. We wouldn't listen. We bad come
for one thing. We laughingly over

More than that, we called father
In from the bam and got him to
bundle mother up and take her off
for a sleigh ride. "A sleigh ride!
Who ever beard of a sleigh ride and all
the parlor furniture In the hall wait
ing for the parlor to be cleaned!"
Well, mother heard of a sleigh ride,
and under just these conditions now.
She heard of it from her two strong
minded daughters, her youngest and
her oldest. Father caught our spirit
at once and bustled her%way. How
merrily the bells jingled as they
whirled away through the snow!
Now for it! Marge ant} I tucked
up our skirts, draped ourselves In big
aprons and wound towels abont our
beads, and fell to. It was hard work,
but what a lark we made of It And
we bad a good supper waiting for
mother and father when they got back.
