How does Atticus advise Jem to react to Mrs. Dubose’s taunts in Chapter 11 of To Kill a Mockingbird?

At the beginning of this chapter, before Mrs. Dubose really makes Jem angry, Atticus has given Jem advice about how to react to her.  He tells Jem, basically, that he must ignore Mrs. Dubose.  He tells Jem that he has to hold his head up, be a gentleman, and not let her make him angry.Of course, later in the chapter, Jem is unable to follow this advice.  Presumably he gets angry because she says Atticus is no better than the black people or “trash” that he works for.  At this point, Jem cannot follow the advice (which he has repeated to Scout) and gets very angry.
