Famous Writer Tells of a Pretty Young Wife Who/
in Mother-in-Law’s Estimation, Doesn’t Quite
Come Up to the Standard SON Deserves,
NOW, now, Mrs. H. . . .— Benvenuto Cellini Isn’t the same per
son as Benito Mussolini. Maybe he belongs to the same
lodge and ha^ the same grip and password, or will have when
they both get into the same world together, after being separated
lor a lew hundred years—but they’re not even
brothers or cousins. They aren’t, really and
truly, they aren’t.
And you disgradid yourself when you
mixed 'em up, didn’t you?
And your mother-in-law, was she shocked
at your mistake or was she rather pleased do
you suppose?
Poor little Mrs. H.-, she is pretty and
she is young and she is affectionate, and she
thought the world of her young husband, but
when he took her to live with his mother, it
was just too bad.
Mother-in-law says, that daughter-in-law
has a pronunciation and a vocabulary worse
than those of a radio announcer.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, mother-in
umjtrDrnWLtf’K law prayed aloud, and when she prayed, she
WINIFRCDSIA^ ..praycd at’* daughter-in-law, and asked the
Lord to deliver her son from the snares and machinations of evil,
and by these snares and machinations mother-in-law meant daughter
in-law, and made no bones about it.
Now, ladies and gentlemen, Jet us all unite in singing that well
known song: t “ ““
“Tell me the old, old story.”
We all love to read the
pretty tale of the king who
stepped down from his throne
ana married the beggar maid
and took her to live in his
golden palace with him, and sit
beside him on his golden throne.
But, oh—I would love to hear
the beggar maid’s side of the
story, wouldn’t you?
i wonaer u sne didn t ever
trip over her royal robes some
times, and how ever did she
learn to carry a scepter so that
it wouldn’t remind l.er of a
broomstick or a feather duster?
And the ladles of the court—
did they laugh at the poor beg
gar maid?—very secretly, of
course, but not too secretly for
the beggar maid to know it.
And did she sometimes wish she
could run away from the palace
and be with the people who
spoke and ate the things she
liked, and either used a fork,
•r a knife, or their fingers, just
ss they felt inclined?
The King—how did he feel
about it all, when he had grown
quite used to the beggar maid’s
big blue eyes and shining golden
hair? And when the blue eyes
had lost their lustre, and the
yellow hair began to fade, did
the King wish the Queen would
use a little better grammar when
she was excited? —and did he
sometimes feel it in his heart to
wonder how he came to overlook
the terrible way the pronounced
some of her words?
Oh, yes, it’s been done. Kings
have married beggar maids and
made them very happy, no
doubt, but after all, beggar
maids have rather a different
viewpoint from kings, haven’t
they?—or they ought to have.
And viewpoints do make a
difference—especially when the
eyes and beauty begin to fade.
I know a clever woman whVs
married to rather a dull man,
•he was awfully in love with him
when she married him.
I saw them at a dinner to
gether the other night, and there
was something in the wife’s ex
pression when her husband be
gan to yawn at the wTong mo
ment, that made me wonder
which of the brilliant young
lawyers at the table she would
choose for her attorney when
she sued for a divorce.
And when there’s a mother-in
law in the bargain, too—well,
well, or as our dear cousins,
the so delightful French, are
fond of saying, oo-oo-la-la!
