He was absent-minded in the performance of his duties, and in fits of abstraction he smashed a good deal of expensive glass-ware, But the cook, in an Interview with her mistress, pronounced him a great acquisition. "How's that?" asked the lady of the house, "Well, he talks so cleverly," said the cook. "Lact night, for instance, he expllaincedl things to us for an hour and a half." "Explained thinga! What things?" said the ilastreas, who wasn now really interested., "Well," was the reply, "lie was telling us how we are all descended frolm Mr, Darwin!"
