The True Voice

While watching some children at play recently the writer was very much impressed by their various activities. Presently in a clear voice the name of one of the children was called. He did not heed the call, but went on with his playing as if nothing had occurred. Soon his name was called again. Instantly all toys and playmates were left and he ran home.

It was later discovered that the first voice was that of a little boy across the way. The latter call was from his mother. Regardless of how well the little boy had imitated the voice of the mother, he had failed to disturb the child in the least, and the call had not separated him from his fun at play. He was not deceived into accepting the first call as genuine or authoritative.
