When I asked about Flora, she burst into tears. •"You mustn't feel like that," 1 said awkwardly. "Bob is a dear boy. I've known him all my life, i »nd there isn't anything about him | that isn't nice." j ''I know," Annabcllc said bit- j terly, dabbing at her eyes, "but , that's all he is, a nice boy. He'll i never be anything else. Do you i know what,he makes?

And why should anyone .: as pretty as Flora have to soil her '•bands cleaning out loilcts and i tinks? She never has cleaned a •itoilet." I said: "Mosl of Ihe girls 1 know, even Ihosc with rich fathers, do liicir/ own housework when they first get married. I never noticed lhal il hurl them or lhal anyone felt particularly sorry for Ihcm." "Girls like Alice Milchel and Jcannie Harper, who play al keeping house as Muriu Antoinette played at bcin.:; u milkmaid! You couldn't possibly xmdcrsla&l. shouldn't expect you lo." "Well, at leasl I can understand that Klornbelle must have wanled lo marry Bob most av.'fully. Bob didn't knock her down and drag her lo thc<iiUar.
