quality, and black velvet for a tiny sleeveless jacket, and satin for a cap. It was hard to choose, since I would have nothing but the best for my son. I commanded the owner of the shop to pull down more and yet more of the silk he had folded away in dark paper covers and placed in the shelves that reached to the ceiling. He was an old man hard of breathing, and he grumbled when I cried:
" Show me yet more-a piece of silk with peach flowers embroidered upon it!"
I heard him mutter something of the vanity of women and hearing him I said:
" It is not for myself but for my son."
Then he smiled crookedly and brought me the loveliest piece of all-the piece he had withheld until now.
" Take it," he said. "I was keeping it for the magistrate's wife, but if it is for your son, take it. She is but a woman after all."
It was the piece I sought. Among the vivid piles of silks scattered over the counter it shone with a deep rosy lustre. I bought it without questioning the price, although I know the cunning old man added to it, seeing my eagerness, I carried it in my arms to my home. I said:
" To-night I shall cut from this the little coat

and trousers. I shall do it all alone. I am jealous of another's touch upon my child."
