77/ Tell Papa, ' Said Sonny
What Grandmother Did Then Was a Sufficiency—A Little
Talk on Boy Management by Cynthia Gray.
Father was a commercial traveler and seldom at home. Conse-
Sently his 8-year-old son was to him the most marvelous boy he'd
sr- seen. He couldn't understand how HE, with all his shortcom
ts, ever had the luck to be "father" to a boy like his.
When mother saw fit to chide this prodigy, father was horrified.
Of course, MOTHER knew just how vexatious sonny could be occa
sionally during the days that father was away, but father only knew
him at his best. Mother had a sneaking belief that she wasn't firm
enough with her small boy, but It was easier to drift —and so it
vent on.
To sonny, father was a never-falling sourse of interest. What
wonderful tales of the big world he could tell! And then, too, father
appreciated HIM! So sonny WAS an "angel child" while he was be
ing so delightfully entertained. What child wouldn't be?
Well, sonny soon discovered that father didn't approve when
-*Jther scolded, and he was cunning enough to make the best of It—
■p* he 111 17 hate to be corrected! So he laid for mother and the next
unie she rebuked him he astounded her by whimpering, "I'll tell
papa on you!" Mother immediately surrenedered and smothered the
youngster with caresses, saying to herself, "Maybe I AM too severe
With the child."
This trump card he used more and more often with tellingeffect
On mother, but his day of reckoning came. After grandmother, papa's
mother, had overheard it a time or two she was so disgusted that she
calmly luld the youngster over her knee one day and administered
• thorough and complete spanking.
"There!" she exclaimed. "Tell your papa that his mother gave
you just what you deserved!"
To mother, she said, for her blood was up: "You are really to
blame, daughter, for you should have settled him the very first time
he threatened to tattle. Boys are really naturally chivalrous, and
that trait is a good foundation to work on. Children are so easily
spoiled. If you would just make sonny feel that he Is your protect
or—that he is the man of the house while father is away—it would
be the making of him. Appeal to his. latent sense of responsibility,
talk with him, reason with him, and I'll wager he'll not threaten you
again. On the contrary he'll soon be telling the children what a dan
dy chum mother is and how he is taking care of her. I know, for I've
lived long enough to be sure of where I stand. Try it, you'll find
I'm right.
And wasn't grandmother right? I'm sure of It. The sooner the
facility for doing things and the accompanying sense of responsibility
for the doing are taught children the more firmly will a love of the
duties become a part of their characters.

In the new excitement that pul
sated with every fiber of his being,
Howland forgot his own danger,
forgot his old caution and the fears
that gave birth to it, forgot every
thing in these moments but Me
leese and his own great happiness.
For he was happy, happier than he
had ever been in his life, happier
than he bad ever expected to be.
He was conscious of no madness
Jn his strange, new joy that swept
through his being like a fire; he
did not stop to weigh with himself
the unreasoning Impulses that,
filled him. He had held Meleeae
in his arms, he had told her of his
love, and though she had accepted
it with gentle unresponsiveness he'
•was thrilled by the memory of that |
last look in her eyes, which had
spoken faith, confidence, and per
haps even more. And his faith in
her had become as limitless as the
blue space above him. He had
known her for but a few hours and
yet in that time it seemed to him
that he had lived longer than in nil
Of the years that had gone before.
She had lied to him, had divulged
only a pari of her Identity—and
yet he knew that there were reas
ons for these things.
Tomorrow night ho would see her
again, and then—
What would she tell him? What
ever it was, it was to be a reward
for his own love He knew that,
by the half-fearing tremblo of her
voice, the sobbing* catch of her
breath, the soft glow in her eyes.
Impelled by that love, would she
confide in him? And then—would
he go back into the south?
H* laughed, softly, joyfully.
Yes, he would go bnck Into the
south—he would go to the other
end of the earth, if she would go
with him. What was tl>e building

old way he had seen them —were

He stopped and lighted his pipe.
The fragrant odor of the tobacco,
the flavor of the warm smoke In
his mouth, helped to readjust him,
to cool his heated brain. The old
fighting instincts leaped Into life
again. Go into the south? He
asked himself the question once
more, and in the gloomy silence
of the forest his low laugh fell
again as he clenched his hands in
anticipation of what was ahead of
him. No —he would build the road!
And in buildiug it he would win
this girl, If it was given for him to
possess her.
His saner thought brought back
his caution. He went more slowly
toward the cabin, keeping in the
deep shadows and stopping now
and then to listen. At the edge of
the clearing he paused for a long
time. There was no sign of life
about the cabin abandoned by
Qregson and Tlioruo. It was prob
able that, the two men who had
passed along the path had returned
to the cnmp by another trail, and
still keeping as much within the
shadows as possible he went to tbe
door and entered.
With his feet propped in front of
the big box stove sat Jackpine. The
Indian rose as Howland entered,
and something In the sullen gloom
of his face caused the young en
gineer to eye htm questionlngly.
"Any one been here, Jackpine?"
The old sledge-driver gave his
head a negative shake and hunched
his shoulders, pointing at the same
time to the table, on which lay a
carefully folded piece of paper.
"Thome," he grunted.
Howland spread out the paper In
the light of the lamp, and read:
"My Dear Howland:
"I forgot to tell you that our

she is old enough to work at all
until she is too old to work any
more—or gets married.
The trouble with Smith was she

she knew her place. So when Tom
Freeman, the master's brother-in
law, came back from a 10-year-stay |
on his South African ranch and
proposed marriage to Smith, the
girl burst into tears and said she
would have to give notice at once.
She quoted cook's opinion, that it
wasn't proper for a girl to stay in
a house after one of the gentlemen
had made love to her. j
Smith thought Freeman was jok-|
ing. Perhaps ho was, partially. He
awnted a wife for his lonely ranch.
Perhaps, when he looked at
Smith's rosy health and strong
body his thoughts unconsciously
ran to cattle he bred. Anyhow he
asked her, and she refused him
cold and signified her intention of;
giving notice. I
But Smith didn't leave. For,
Freemnn said no more of love or
marriage. But he liked to have her
wait on him so he could watch her.
He found her re freaking after the

"Where do you sleep, Jackpine?"
he asked suddenly.
"Cabin in edge of woods," re

"You needn't wake me," said
Howland, throwing off his coat. "I'l

up. Good night."
Jackpine had half opened the
door, and for a moment the en
gineer caught a cllmpße of his
dark, grinning fare looking back
over his shoulder. He hesitated, as

mouthful of his Inimitable

After bolting the door Howland

hours later. The camp was hardly

And Smith's eyes streamed tears.
It was a tragic interruption to

The two months Freeman had al

were taunting him for his failure.
"It's true," he said, "the only

"Who was that?" they asked in

Freeman found her crying with
