"Now, let's go on," said Janet, in her calm tones. "Let us try and settle something before the supper bell rings. We must have a committee, that goes without saying. Suppose we four girls form it."

Rest all you can, dear, and if you are very good you may perhaps be allowed to join us at supper."

Janet did not say any more. She bent forward, ostensibly to renew her studies, in reality to hide a jealous feeling which surged up in her heart.
She entered the room, then, in a long white embroidered dress, looped up here, there, and everywhere with sky-blue ribbons.

After all, I am not your slave, but your mistress; I have made laws, and you have got to obey them. Up to the present I have treated you as a baby, but now I am going to show you what life really means."
A loud booming sound filled the air.
"Am I ever hard to my pupils, my love?"
The children disappeared in as frantic haste to be off as they were a few minutes ago to arrive.
