THE BURTONIAN by keeping his pockets stuffed with candy he mowed the lawn fwhat could be a better gift for a hard working fatherl he ran errands and he even grabbed up the dish towel if he could give someone else a bit of rest There is no need to say that he was always a welcome guest Unlike kind hearted Uncle Frank was a rich aunt whom we used to ask duty bound to visit us each summer She was the type of person who seems to be born vain and selfish and who never grows out of it Although people say one should never put on company manners I am sure we children would have been duly grateful lf she had tried to be more agreeable when visiting instead of always being her dis agreeable self She had plenty of money but would never think of buying a treat for us children although we did a lot of things for her However we should not have done so much if Aunt ane hadnt beliexed that children were made to be useful I can see her now rocking away in an arm chair on the porch pretending to knit or read But lt seemed at least to us that she was only trying to End things for us to do First she wanted her glasses then her knitting needles then her ball of yarn would roll on the floor and we rnust pick it up Soon she would get tired of knitting and call to one of us to skip in and bring out a magazine or run up to the postoflice and get the morning paper But what we disliked most was that she deliberately took it upon herself to make us models of etiquette vvhxle she was there Every afternoon we must be very quiet while the older people rested then we must clean up and go callmg with Aunt ane sitting very stiff and proper for an endless half hour or so in some hard seated straight backed chair If we started some interesting game after dinner we were sure to see her stalk into the room and say Now children go and help your love to help her without anyone exen suggesting it And although we felt like crying Go and do it yourself we would reluctantly start for the kitchen I can assure you there were a good many days that we thanked our stars that her Vlsit was not going to last forever And now that I have thought over sexeral different types of guests I am beginning to wonder what kind of a guest I am Everyone just as surely as he has an individual personality must create an impression all his own on his hosts and hostcsses It is certainly true that proper clothes table manners etc have a great deal to do with it but lf is just as true that they dont do everything I guess exen if we try to be especially nice we cannot keep it up long unless we are really so all the time So the only solution to the problem of being a gracious guest or a charming entertuner seems for us to don our company manners and pleasant ways every day until they become second nature to us COBWEBS Bx lvlary Farnum 35 Shlnxng cobwebs in the grass Fairies gather as they pass Weave them into softest silk As youll End in grandmas quilt Then they tint the glist ning folds Baby blues and pinks and golds Some are left a sparkling white Some of course are dark as night To the fairy shops it goes Where it waits in rows and rows Till fairy maids with shining tresses Make it into gorgeous dresses 6 V . , S ' 2 5 A f ' A , , , . , . 9 , 4 I ' l . , , . . . 3 . . 1 , , Y- - K . - , 2 , . v- ' A ' , g . .
