FIVE LITTLE PEPPERS




A HOME VIEW


The little old kitchen had quieted down from the bustle and confusion
of mid-day; and now, with its afternoon manners on, presented a holiday
aspect, that as the principal room in the brown house, it was eminently
proper it should have. It was just on the edge of the twilight; and the
little Peppers, all except Ben, the oldest of the flock, were enjoying
a "breathing spell," as their mother called it, which meant some
quiet work suitable for the hour. All the "breathing spell" they could
remember however, poor things; for times were always hard with them
nowadays; and since the father died, when Phronsie was a baby, Mrs.
Pepper had had hard work to scrape together money enough to put bread
into her children's mouths, and to pay the rent of the little brown
house.

But she had met life too bravely to be beaten down now. So with a stout
heart and a cheery face, she had worked away day after day at making
coats, and tailoring and mending of all descriptions; and she had seen
with pride that couldn't be concealed, her noisy, happy brood growing
up around her, and filling her heart with comfort, and making the little
brown house fairly ring with jollity and fun.

"Poor things!" she would say to herself, "they haven't had any bringing
up; they've just scrambled up!" And then she would set her lips together
tightly, and fly at her work faster than ever. "I must get schooling for
them some way, but I don't see how!"
