And Mother grew all flushed and
rosy again, but she was pleased. I
t knew she was. And she said some
I beautiful things about making other
people happy, instead of loolng to
ourselves all the time. just as she had
talked once. before I went away. And
I felt again that hushed, stained-win
dow, soft-music, everybody-kneeling
a kind of a way; and I was so happy!
r And It lasted all the rest of that eve

And for the first time a beautiful
idea came to me, when I thought how
Mother was trying to please Father,
a and he was trying to please her.

Oh, how I wish that stained-windew,

But it never does. Just the next
morning, when I woke up, it rained.
l And I didn't feel pleased a bit. Still
I remembered what had happened the
night before, and a real glow came
Bover me at the beautiful idea I had
gone to sleep with.
I wanted to tel Mother, and ask
her it couldn't be, and wouldn't she

TWO WEEKS ANC ONE DAY LATER

she did. She had the lpapet'r in her
hand, looklrig ait it. when I c'anle into
the rooml; but as soon as she saw lie
she laid it right down quick 4ni the
table. If she hadn't been quite so
quick about it, and if she hadn't looked
quite so queer when she did It. I
wouldn't have thought anything at all.
But when I went over to the table after
she had gone, and saw the paper with
Father's picture right on the first
page-and the biggest picture there
I knew then, of course, what she'd
been looking at.
I looked at it then, and I read what
it said, too. It was lovely. Why, I
hadn't any idea Father was so big. I
was prouder than ever of him. It told
all about the stars and comets he'd
discovered, and the books he'd written
on astronomy, and how he was presi
dent of the college at Andersonville,
and that he was going to give an ad
dress the next day. And I read it
all-every word. And I made up my
mind right there and then that I'd
cut out that piece and save It.
But that night, when I went to the
library cupboard to get the paper, I
couldn't do it. after all. Oh, the paper
was there, but that page was gone.
There wasn't a bit of it left. Some
body had taken it right out. I never
thought then of Mother. But I believe
now that it was Mother, for

to eat them-I mean tell them-in reg

in where the soup ought to be. So
I'm not going to tell yet why I suspect
it was Mother that cut out that page
of the paper with Father's picture ln
Well, the next morning was Father's
lecture, and I went with Mother. Of
course Grandfather was there, too,
but he was with the other astronomers.
I guess. Anyhow, he didn't sit with us.

Mother and I were alone.
We sat back-a long ways back. 1

I told Mother so. But she said.
"Mercy, no!" and shuddered, and went
back two more rows from where she
was, and got behind a big post.
I guess she was fraild Father would
see us, but that's what I wanted. I

to be right in the middle of his lecture
