quote:
    A Lesson in Table Manners.

It was at a country Sunday school picnic, where great quantities of the regulation eatables, chiefly apple pies, had been brought for the children to eat.

Little Mary Jane, from away back in the hills, was there, and with her mother, who kept an eye on the child constantly to see that her behavior was perfect.

Presently Mary Jane was observed digging into an apple pie with her knife whereupon her mother spoke up.

“Mary Jane Berls”

“ Ma'am!”

“What be you a doin'”

“Eatin' pie, ma'am."

“What be you a eaten' it with?"

“A knife”

“So you be! Now what have I told yon about eatin' pie with your knife. Mary Jane? Take that pie up in your hand and eat it as you'd ought to!"
