She had. furthermore, a very keen sense of justice. Since she could not earn the vages of enough maids to take care of the family and babies, and since .he family purse for the first years of her marriage was slim, she gave up her. work and took over the care of house and children for the first 10 years of her married life. By that time some of the children vere at school, and finances were ufficiently satisfactory for her to jegin to find time to write once ore. But by now the family had grown accustomed to calling on her for everything. She would sit down at ler desk with a brain teeming with deas and reams of clean white pa- jer to put them on, only to be interrupted every five minutes with some Titling call which broke the train of thoughts. At last she would shut her desk in despair, her brain empty and exhausted. Finally ghe called a council of the children and gave her ultimatum. "I shall probably have many years of life after you are all grown. If you want me to be a liability when I am old, with nothing to do but interfere in your lives and make you wretched, go right ahead as you are. Interrupt me and make it impossible to go on with my work. "1C you will give me a little time of my very own every day to think and write, I can assure yon that I will not be a bxirden to you in my old age." The children agreed that the demand was reasonable, and Mrs. Jones has found them zealous guardians and champions of her right to uninterrupted time. CHRISTMAS PARTY FOIt EPISCOPAL CHILDREN The annual Christmas party o£ St. John's Episcopal church school was held Friday night in the guild hall of the MacNider memorial parish house.
