THE KITE

with a lot of rough boys at the County Council school and she said to him:
" Now, Herbert, do what I do; keep yourself to yourself and don't have anything more to do with them than you can help."
But Herbert got on very well at school. He was a good worker and far from stupid. His reports were excellent. It turned out that he had a good head for figures.
" If that's a fact," said Samuel Sunbury, "he'd better be an accountant. There's always a good job waiting for a good accountant."
So it was settled there and then that this was what Herbert was to be. He grew tall.
" Why, Herbert," said his mother, "soon you'll be as tall as your dad."
By the time he left school he was two inches taller, and by the time he stopped growing he was five feet ten.
" Just the right height," said his mother. "Not too tall and not too short."
He was a nice-looking boy, with his mother's regular features and dark hair, but he had inherited his father's blue eyes, and though he was rather pale his skin was smooth and clear. Samuel Sunbury had got him into the office of the accountants who came twice a year to do the accounts of his own firm and by the time he was twenty-one he was able to bring back to his mother every week quite a nice little sum. She gave him back three half-crowns for his lunches and ten shillings for, pocket money, and the rest she put in the Savings Bank for him against a rainy day.
When Mr. and Mrs. Sunbury went to bed on the night of Herbert's twenty-first birthday, and in passing I may say that Mrs. Sunbury never went to bed, she retired, but Mr. Sunbury who was not quite so refined as his wife always said: "Me for Bedford,"-when then Mr. and Mrs. Sunbury went to bed, Mrs. Sunbury said:
" Some people don't know how lucky they are; thank the Lord, I do. No one's ever had a better son than our Herbert.
