The village and the country about
the old Lester homestead were one
day surprised by the announcement
that Miss Priscilla Lester hud decided
to open an old woman's home in the
big manor hbuse. She had been a
motherless girl for years, and her fa
ther had now been dead for twelve
months. To open and conduct such a
home had been her dream for years,
and she was to have the enthusiastic
support of ber church pastor.
It wasn't to be called an old wo
man's home, as such a term would
hurt old women's feelings, but was to
be known as the old ladies' rest.
Vv'hiie masons and carpenters were
mailing changes circulars were' sent
out and answered by thousands of
old ladies throughout the United
States. More than 500 of them called
in person at once, though told not to.
and when the rest was finally ready
to receive guests over 5.000 applica
tions were on file. Miss Prisc-illa and
the minister were amazed. They had
figured on only about forty old ladies
and not taking them all at once either.
After a long confab, in which various
things came up that had not hitherto
been discussed or provided for, It was'
decided to start off with only seven
The seven old ladies walked or were'
carried or hoisted into the rest, and
then the institution was considered
opened. Each had a room, and the at
tendants had been instructed to treat
them as they would their own moth
ers. Some of them did not obey in
structions They would have wmnsr
their own mothers' necks before bed
time. As soqu as they found them
selves "solid" the old ladies broke out.
They had game legs; they had stomach
troubles; they had lumbago and swim
ming of the head; they wanted this
and that, and they wanted it quick.
Next morning, after a night -of
groans and sighs, the seven got togeth
er in the. dining room. The doctor, who
had known as many as five old ladies
in his life, had made out the bill of
fare and looked upon it as a generous
one. That was one of his mistakes.
The seven agreed that it was the
worst meal ever set before a poor old
lady. It was already plain that they
i .. .. .. '
uau oeen inaucea to enter the rest un
der false pretenses, and each and ev
ery one mumbled dark hints about
lawsuits to get even. One of the seven
had as many as three teeth left in ber
mouth, the others a tooth or two less,
and yet the seven were a unit In want
ing to know why beefsteak had not
been provided. ,
After the dining room had . been

through each had her own status and
was ready to pitch Into that of all
others. The doctor recommended that
the whole caboodle of them be pitched
outdoors, the minister looked thought
ful, and Miss Priscilla hovered over all
like the angel of peace that she was.
She held to it that as soon as the old
ladies had got settled down everything
would go smoothly.
The rooms were fine, but they were
found fault with. The beds were good,
but there were complaints. The food
could scarcely have been bettered, but
tne seven cried out In chorus that they
were being deliberately starved to
death. Miss Priseilla listened to all
these complaints and soothed the com
plainers, and sometimes she would
bring about a peace that lasted all of
half an hour. Then Mrs. Hennessey
would suddenly say to Mrs. Smith:
"Think of the likes of you to be com
plaining, an old cat that hasn't had a
decent meal In your stomach for
"And you and you!" shouted Mrs.
Smith in reply. "Don't we all know
that you were glad, to get potato peel
ings before you came here!"
' It would always require Miss Pris
cllla's presence and sometimes that of
the minister and two or three of the
attendants to smooth the troubled wa
ters, and after the waves had subsided
the good man would be asked:
"These little things shouldn't dis
courage us, should they?"
"N-o-o, not exactly discourage."
"It's a noble charity, isn't it?"
"Y-e-s, very noble."
"And the old ladies will come to love
one another in time?"
"We must hope that they will."
"Oh. but. bless thpir rleni- nlrl hixn-na
they surely will! I must hurry up and
get the place ready for seven more."
i.ne minister turned nale at tho irton
but seven more never came. The rest
had been running for a month, arid the
old ladies already installed had bick
ered at every meal and quarreled three,
times a day,' when there arose a dis
pute one day as to whether lumbago
or consumption entitled the victim to
the most respect and consideration. It
was not settled on the spot. It has
never been settled since. There were
angry words, and there was hair pull
ing over It and then the seven old la
dies left the institution by seven dif
ferent ways, each one declaring she
would never return. By the time Pris
cilla and the doctor and the minister
had rounded them up and brought them
back the minister was ready to say:
"My dear girl, you see how it has
been for the last month. It Is a noble
charity. It is a beautiful thing. It ex
presses a thousand tender sentiments,
but were you to get married and let
your husband run an old gentlemen's
home instead I think vonr dnrv to
ward yourself and humanity at large
would be as fully conserved."
lake Notice. The Priscilla rest for
old ladies has been permanently clos
ed. Applications should be made to
other rests." ,
