her grandmother's Idol and i her
grandmother hers. Old Mrs. Mor

hysterical type of women, .and

by of whom she had been de
prived so long to see that the lit
tle girl had the Judicious "let
ting alone" which her taut,
childish nerves demanded.

ing, and I was sure that it-the
little girl went through the awiui
experience of seeing her grand
mother dead or dying for death

ing, perhaps irreparable effects.
