Albert was by, no means brilliant, or avid to learn. Rather. he had given her the impression 01 doing just sufficiently well to get by. But his grades were qen- t r. » 11 y satisfactory and Miss Johnson could find no real fault with him. His conduct too. had been sood enough. Shrewd and seemingly old lot his years. Albert had never indulged in the profitless intics by which more robust boys found dubious outlets. However, of late weeks Albert had changed. In • fashion that she came •ventually to think of as "studied." Albert began contriving to . make a nuisance of himsell Initially Miss Johnson was ,. conscious that Albert's homework assignments were either • done badly or not done at all. Next there was a definite trend ' toward inattention on his part. ' Both inattention to herself, and to the normal classroom. routine of the At first .these things did not disturb Miss Johnson. She knew 'there were strange description- def>tng periods in the lives of .'i pre-adolescents which were often characterized by what she '' thought of as a sort of natural ;',' "anooniness." during which the best ol pupils were apt to be; .come difficult and unsatisfactory. Possibly Albert Symes was entering into one of these periods. But as time went on. Miss Johnson decided that there was more than mere mooniness in :. Albert's attitude. Patently the . boy had set out to make a nui- •t unce of himself In a variety of turrtpUtiou* And too often for accident, while she was trying to bring the class to order at assembly or dismissal, things—pens, pencils, rulers and such schoolroom accessories— Jell from Albert's desk at just the right moments to cause a maximum of distraction amongst others in his immediate neighborhood. It was as if Albert Symes felt Derfectly sure of himself, dii- dainful of the teacher, and able, without fear of reprisal, to flout ner authority.. And if he chose to do so by small and insignificant annoyances—well, that was Albert's privilege. The meanness and Insignificance did not surprise Miss Johnson. His new attitude, how- ;ver, was highly puzzling to her. • • • p was iust as obvioui that A.1- ' bert's attitude was in some manner connected with the acts of his mother. But that black- browed, hard and cynical Mri. Symes would have given her son to understand that he had suddenly been placed in a privileged position, above the restrictions imposed upon his fellow students, was inconceivable. Rather. Mrs. Symei had conveyed tne impression to Miss Johnson of being willing to deal rough-handedly with Albert, should the occasion demand. Miss Johnson, trying to spare even Albert such a painful occasion, spoke to the youth several times. For her trouble she received that lame studied Inattention, spic*d with a certain Insolence. One day she kept him after school in exasperation. "Albert," she «*ked, • bending over hit desk where he sat with t tulkr look oo hi> f»«. "wbat has been the matter with you lately?" Albert scuffed his feet, but refused to meet her eyes. "Nothin'.* "It doesn't look like nothing to me," she said. "When a boy cfianges as completely as you have, there must be some reason. Has anything happened here at school? Or at—or elsewhere?" "Nah!" The reply .was slurring, surly. Then Albert deliberately twisted in his seat away from her. "Albert! I'm speaking to you. And I'd like to have your attention." "Well, I'm listenin'." The boy snapped it out so impudently that Miss Johnson came within a hair of boxing his ears. She caught herself lust in time. But she did take him by the chin. Firmly ihe turned his head around. "Albert Symes. don't you ever speak to me that way again!" Albert winced under the pressure of the teacher's fingers. • •. • ]\f 1SS JOHNSON would hardly have been human had she not felt satisfaction in watching this particular Individual writhe, But she took her hand away. "You deserve to be hurt worse than that," she said severely. "Now then, perhaps you'll explain why you're acting the way you do? And you know very well what 1 mean. All this gazing out the window in class, and your fidgeting around, and your knocking things onto the floor. Those things are happening too often to be entirely accidental." Albert nursed his chin, probably pretending that it hurt worse than it did. Then he said, sulkily, '1 don't know what you're talkin' about." Miss Johnson made an effort It was distasteful, but part of her job to straighten out Albert Symes. She forced gentleness into her tone. "Listen, Albert, I'm here to help you, And 1 think that you need help. Your conduct's poor and your marks—they u»ed to be good, too — have been ilip- ping. But I can't help you if you won't tell m what your trouble ii." ' (T« B« 0»oU«ue4) .._<.
