Excerpt: ...from Pollie, who, until now, has been playing fairly quietly with Jennie in the corner. "Harry, you bad, wicked boy!" she screams, "I'll pull all your hair out, that I will!" and she rushes at Harry like a little fury. Harry defends himself savagely, and Jennie, curled up on the floor, howls her loudest. "Be quiet, Jennie! Pollie and Harry, if you don't leave off fighting at once, I'll box your ears all round!" cries Bob, looking up angrily from his work. "Harry's sawn the leg off one of our dollies!" shrieks Pollie, "and he's a bad, bad, wicked boy!" 75 Harry defends himself savagely. "She asked me to," roars Harry; "her 76 dollie had smashed its leg like father, and I was the doctor, and had to take it off." "He hadn't! He was to cure its bad leg, and now he's made it worse, and I'll pull his hair out for that, I will!" "I don't care about your old dolls and rubbish; but if you're not quiet this minute I'll knock all your heads together and give you something to cry for!" cries Bob, still more angrily, and he starts from his chair as though to execute his threat. But Betty lays her hand entreatingly on his arm. "Oh, Bob, don't; father wouldn't like it. He can't bear you to strike the children.
