Excerpt: ELNORA COMSTOCK, have you lost your senses? demanded the angry voice of Katharine Comstock while she glared at her daughter. Why mother! faltered the girl. Don't you 'why mother' me! cried Mrs. Comstock. You know very well what I mean. You've given me no peace until you've had your way about this going to school business; I've fixed you good enough and you're ready to start. But no child of mine walks the streets of Onabasha looking like a play-actress woman. You wet your hair and comb it down modest and decent and then are off, or you'll have no time to find where you belong.?.
