The Brimming Cup

by Dorothy Canfield Fisher

Mrs. Fisher has drawn a delightfully human family, with its hardworking, reliable father, its sensitive, poetic little daughter who says "queer things," two small boys, one stodgy and responsible, the other a lovable, selfish baby, and, holding them all together the beautiful, musician mother who asks over and over the questions "What is the use of" her prim convention bound existence and her doubtful instruction of her children. The question is answered as satisfactorily as it is asked.
