He tore her bonnet, scratched her hands, and finally spat in her face, without a word of remonstrance from the mother. Whenever the nurse manifested any firmness, the mother chided her sharply. Presently, the mother composed herself for a nap; and about the time the boy had slapped the nurse for the fiftieth time, a wasp came sailing in, and flew on the window of the nurse's seat. The boy at once tried to catch it. The nurse caught his hand, and said coaxingly, "Harry mustn't touch. Wasp will bite Harry." Harry screamed savagely, and began to kick and pound the nurse. The mother, without opening her eyes or lifting her head, cried out sharply, "Why will you tease that child so, Mary? Let him have what he wants at once."

The mother woke again. "Mary," she cried, "let him have it!" Mary turned in her seat, and said confusedly, "He's got it, ma'am!"
