Keeping up with Lizzie

by Irving Bacheller

"The trouble," says the Honorable Socrates Potter, who tells the story, "began when the grocer started to make a queen of his daughter Lizzie." The pace set by her corrupted the simplicity of the little Connecticut town, and the new houses, "with towers on them," the automobiles, university tuition, and foreign tours jeopardized the financial stability of the community. The story is a shrewd commentary on American life, and has both humor and humanity.
