when the family were all at dinner,
the vegetables all started talking
"I'd he ashamed If I were you,

"We’re not like that."
"No." said the HSparagus “and so
you’re never a treat You're Just
good, wholesome potatoes.
"You’re not unusual. You're not a
delicacy. You spoil the people, that’s
what you do."
"I suppose you think we do the
same,” sHld a carrot.
“Of course 1 do," answered the
asparagus. “You let yourself become
so common that they put you In stew
They don’t put I he members of our
family In a stew
"And as for the radishes grow ing

"And there are the beans nnd the
peas well wa'd never act like that.”
“It’s true they never would," said
the potatoes "Maybe we do let our-
selves become common.”
"And maybe w* do, too," snld th»

And the other vegetables all felt
