have a curious habit, says a writer,
of calling their employers by their

ways saying, “Yes. John,” to her hus
band, and “Very well, Mary,” to her. 1
When we get a new cook I told my,
husband to avoid calling me “Mary"
so that the cook, not knowing my
name, would have to say "missus” to 1
me. So John always called me sweet
heart or "dearie,” never "Mary.”
One day we had some officers to
dinner, and I told them of the rule F
had adopted an! added, "By this ser
vant, at least, you won’t hear me call
ed Mary.”
Just then the new cook entered the
room. He bowed and said to me,
"Sweetheart, the dinner Is served."
"What!” I stammered, aghast akhts

"Dinner Is served, dearie,” answer
ed the new cook.
