Thebeau,ama o geveze olmaya devam etti., regardless of my discomfiture.(bundan rahats─▒z olmam─▒ ald─▒rmaks─▒z─▒n.)

“De eldest--a boy, monsieur--he was joost nine year old, and my wife she

call him, ‘Le petit p├Ęre.’ His mother she send him out to walk wiz all

hees leetle sisters, and she say to him: ‘Charles, you are one beeg boy,

almost one man, and you must take care you leetle sisters; so, when de

wind she blow too hard, you will walk you on de side of dat wind, and

put yourself between it and your sisters.’ ‘Yes, mama,’ il dit. And we,

my wife and I, we look out de window, and me? I am laugh, and my wife,

she cry--she have lost her only bebby, monsieur--to see dat leetle boy

walk him in front of his leetle sisters, open hees coat, comme ├ža,

monsieur, and spread it wiz hees hands, to make one shield to keep de

wind from his sisters.”

The man to whom Monsieur Thebeau had been speaking, had turned around,

and was regarding me curiously. I felt abashed and angry under his

compelling glance. Then he smiled, and nodding his head, he said:

“You are right. She _is_ pretty--quite remarkably pretty!”

I forgot everything else. With my little light head and heart awhirl, I

picked up my packages and ran out of the store. It was the first time I

had been called pretty, and I was just twelve years old. I felt

exhilarated and utterly charmed.

When I reached home, I deposited the groceries on a table in the kitchen

and ran up to my room. Standing on a chair, I was able to see my face in

the oval mirror that topped a very high and scratched old chiffonier. I

gazed long and eagerly at the face I had often heard Monsieur Thebeau

say was “tr├Ęs jolie,” which French words I now learned must mean:

“Pretty--quite remarkably pretty!” as had said that Englishman in the


Was I really pretty then? Surely the face reflected there was too fat

and too red. My! my cheeks were as red as apples. I pushed back the

offending fat with my two hands, and I opened my eyes wide and blinked

them at myself in the glass. Oh! if only my hair were gold! I twisted

and turned about, and then I made grimaces at my own face.

Suddenly I was thrilled with a great idea--one that for the moment

routed my previous ambition to some day be an artist, as was my father.

I would be an actress! If I were pretty, and both that Frenchman and

Englishman had said so, why should I not be famous?

I slipped into mama’s room, found a long skirt, and put it on me; also

a feather which I stuck in my hair. Then, fearing detection, I ran out

on tiptoe to the barn. There, marching up and down, I recited poems. I

was pausing, to bow elaborately to the admiring audience, which, in my

imagination, was cheering me with wild applause, when I heard mama’s

voice calling to me shrilly:

“Marion! Marion! Where in the world is that girl?”

“Coming, mama.”

I divested myself hastily of skirt and feather, and left the barn on a

run for the house. Here mama thrust our latest baby upon me, with

instructions to keep him quiet while she got dinner. I took that baby in

my arms, but I was still in that charmed world of dreams, and in my hand

I clasped a French novel, which I had filched from my brother Charles’

room. Charles at this time was twenty years of age, and engaged to be

married to a girl we did not like.

I tried to read, but that baby would not keep still a minute. He

wriggled about in my lap and reached a grimy hand after my book.

Irritated and impatient, I shook him, jumped him up and down, and then,

as he still persisted, I pinched him upon the leg. He simply yelled.

Mama’s voice screamed at me above the baby’s:

“If you can’t take better care of that baby, and keep him quiet, you

shall not be allowed to paint with your father this afternoon, but

shall sit right here and sew,” a punishment that made me put down the

book, and amuse the baby by letting him pull my hair, which seemed to

make him supremely happy, to judge from his chuckles and shouts of


After dinner, which we had at noon, I received the cherished permission,

and ran along to papa’s room. Dear papa, whose gentle, sensitive hands

are now at rest! I can see him sitting at his easel, with his blue eyes

fixed absently upon the canvas before him. Papa, with the heart and soul

of a great artist, “painting, painting,” as he would say, with a grim

smile, “pot-boilers to feed my hungry children.”

I pulled out my paints and table, and began to work. From time to time I

spoke to papa.

“Say, papa, what do I use for these pink roses?”

“Try rose madder, white and emerald green--a little naples yellow,”

answered papa patiently.

“Papa, what shall I use for the leaves?”

“Oh, try making your greens with blues and yellows.”

From time to time I bothered him. By and by, I tired of the work, and

getting up with a clatter, I went over and watched him. He was painting

cool green waves dashing over jagged rocks, from a little sketch he had

taken down at Lachine last summer.

“Tell me, papa,” I said after a moment, “if I keep on learning, do you
