Brothers and Sisters.
Brothers and sisters are all the better for sharing one another's studies and games up to a certain point. The girl who can handle a tennis racket and a croquet mallet vindicates her right to consideration. The boys will never speak of her as " only a girl," and she will be all the franker and none the less sweet for a healthy mixture of work and play. Good comradeship between brothers and sisters is a thing much to be desired ;it saves the girls from prudery and the boys from boorishness, sweetens the natures of both, and acts by restraining every one from doing or saying what would be shameful m the eyes of the "other side."
