to one of the most offensive types
of women that exists—type that near

knows—the woman who takes for her
life creed the fatal words, '1 thought
it was my duty to tell you," and
spends her days confusing what she
covers over iby the much burdened
word "duty" with what is nothing
more nor less than the pettiest spite
or the most malicious Curiosity, and
a desire to gossip and meddle In
other people's affair*. It is bad
enough when this woman Inflicts
suffering upon older people, but It
is, unfortunately, all too often the
case that this tyipe of woman pities

who were hanpy and content—loving
their stepmother or adopted mother
devotedly, and knowing no difference
between her treatment of them and
her own children—have been made
unhappy and disagreeable and Bit
ruly, because this tyipe of the med
dlesome woman, thinking it her
"duty," has told the children what
