Have You This Habit?
By Margaret Morison
THE KNOCKING CLUB
fTWIE Knocking club had met for
luncheon. There were Mrs. van
Vetchen lirown, Agutha l'liu, the nov
elist; May Hendricks, who wore
knickerbockers most of the time and
smoked during her meals, and finally
Constance Welles, whose engagement
to John Wynne had just been an
nounced. They hud been nicknamed
the Knocking club In college, and
among their special circle the name
"Her husband talks too much," be
gan Mrs. van Vechten Drown, whose
own husband had an impediment In
"No." said May Hendricks; "that
Isn't the reason they don't get In It's
his wife, who dresses like a deport
ment store window she's such bad
form, you know."
"I shouldn't care how she dressed
If she wouldn't murder the King's
fcngllsh. Agutba rlin spoke very con
cisely and distinctly.
At this point Constance looked at
her watch. She had an appointment, as
It happened, with John that afternoon.
and here with the Knocking club Just
getting under way she found herself
making her excuses and leaving.
As she and John drove along the
avenue she repented the conversation
at luncheon. To her chagrin John
made no comment. "Don't you think
Dolly Brown Is amusing?" she In
sisted. "I think those three women are like
three old alley eats hugging the dark
corners and squalling at everyone wbo
goes along 1"
Constance gasped. "John, dear, you
couldn't call Agatha Tim an alley call"
"No," said John; "Id coll her a
pampered Persian pussy spitting upon
every passerby I"
"What do you mean?" asked Con
stance. "Take Mrs. van Vechten Brown,"
explained John. "Why does she cry
down a man that ran talk easily? It
dignifies her own husband's not being
able to get through a whole sentence.
When May Hendricks talks about 'bad
form' In others she gives you the Im
pression that she knows what 'bad
form' Is, and you accept her nicotlned
fingers and her tobacco breath. And
so on nnd so on what has Agatha
Tim got but 'King's English,' and
what has Holly Brown got but her
name I" He must have stopped from
sheer lank of breath.
"Then," said Constance, "the habit
of throwing stones at other people Is
really Just pretending that you don't
live In a glass house yourself." The
Knocking club, had lost a member.
