A WISE CHILD
A father was telling his little girl
the story of Pygmalion and Galatea.
The child listened intently as he re
lated how the sculptor fashioned the
wonderful statue with a hammer,
how he fell in love with it when it
was finished, and how it came to life
under the warmth and sincerity of
his love. W'hen he had finished the
father waited for the child's com
ments. "Daddie,” she said, after a
short pause, “what did he do with
.the hammer!”
