Rodney Learns to Help

[Of Special Interest to Children]

Rodney was a quiet, but smiling boy. Once while his parents were looking for a new home in another city, he visited his grandparents. Since it was in the middle of the school term, he attended a nearby day school.

After a few days it was plain that Rodney was not happy; so Grandma went to see his teacher. She was surprised to hear the teacher say that Rodney was an odd child; he seemed to be dreaming or thinking of something other than his class-work. Grandma told her that all he would say was that the teacher didn't smile and that she was cross.

Tears filled the eyes of the teacher. She then explained that because of illness in her family, she had had to stay up late to care for the invalid. Now that a relative had come to help and since the patient was also better, she was more rested and would try earnestly to make the children happy.
