PART I - CHAPTER I
THE PEOPLE OF NETHERMERE


`Clever!' he exclaimed across a mouthful.
'Do you think so?' said the elder sister Emily, sarcastically.
`Yes,' he replied complacently, `you've made her as sharp as yourself, I see, since you've had her in Standard Six. I'll try a potato, mother, if you can find one that 's done.'
'Well, George, they seem mixed, I'm sure that was done that I tried. There-they are mixed-look at this one, it's soft enough. I'm sure they were boiling long enough.'
'Don't explain and apologize to him,' said Emily irritably.
`Perhaps the kids were too much for her this morning,' he said calmly, to nobody in particular.
`No,' chimed in Mollie, `she knocked a lad across his nose and made it bleed.'
`Little wretch,' said Emily, swallowing with difficulty. `I 'm glad I did! Some of my lads belong to-to I
'To the devil,' suggested George, but she would not accept it from him.
Her father sat laughing; her mother, with distress in her eyes, looked at her daughter, who hung her head and made patterns on the table-cloth with her finger.

`Fetch some more sugar, Annie.'
The maid rose from her little table in the corner, and the mother also hurried to the cupboard. Emily trifled with her dinner and said bitterly to him:
`I only wish you had a taste of teaching, it would cure your self-satisfaction.'
` Pf !'he replied contemptuously, ` I could easily bleed the noses of a handful of kids.'
`You wouldn't sit there bleating like a fatted calf,' she continued.
This speech so tickled Mollie that she went off into a burst of laughter, much to the terror of her mother, who stood up in trembling apprehension lest she should choke.
