Your cook will lie delighted to inak£ a blouse for you, and your nurse will turn out in the dining room, while your chambermaid will take the child for an airtng if you order it so. They are more human in their relation to their employers. The English servant fixes a gulf between herself and the most democratic mis tress. The German brings her intimate Joys and sorrows to a good herrschaft and expects their sympathy. When a girl has bad luck and en gages with a bad herrschaft she is worse off than in England because she Is more in the power of her employers and of the police than she would be here.
