ENCOURAGE CHILDREN TO GROW FLOWERS
FOR PLEASURE AS WELL AS FOR PROFIT
When Piece of Ground Is Given to Boy or Girl It Should Be With
Understanding That It Will Be Necessary for Them to Tako
Care of It Use Care in Selecting Seeds.-
I nm a thorough believer In training
children to think "thoy amount to
something" by giving them something
to do that Involves responsibility
Don't make the task too hard, for If
you do that you defeat the object at
which you aim, but let It be one thnt
obliges tho child to think something
out for himself. When he docs this
once ho has laid tho foundation for a
hublt of "thinking out things," and be
fore long you will find him depending
upon himself, rather than upon you,
In tho solution of many llttlo prob
lems that ho has to face. A child
likes to feel that others think him
equal to the performance of tasks that
are put before him, and, feeling this,
he will respond nobly to tho estimate
you have of his ability If you give him
to understand that It exists. Don't
tako it for granted that a boy knows
All about whnt you think of him un
less you tell him something about It
Take him Into your confidence, and
let him know that you consider him a
man In the making, and you'll bo
surprised at tho eflect It has on him.
"Rut that's another story," as Kip
ling Bays. What 1 sot out to talk
about was tho advisability of giving
tho children a garden of their own to
work In, and showing them how to do
that work. A child Is an imitative
creature, nnd the lessons Jio getB the
greatest amount of benefit from are
object lessons, always. Spado up a bit
of ground and let him see you do It,
and ho will do the samo thing pre-
I tCHlCAGgxy 1
them how to,do things, but, nftor that,
leavo tho doing of them to tho chil
dren. In selecting seeds for the children's
flowor garden tako caro to chooso only
kinds which do not require coaxing
or exDort attention. Got tho kinds
that will bo most likely to glvo good
results, under the conditions thoy
must face. Kinds which would glvo
only indifferent satisfaction nro not
what you want, for thosa would dis
appoint the amateur ganlenorB. who,
naturally, expect groat results from
their early offorta In th'i cultivation
of tho soil. Strong, sturdy, self-reliant
sorts are tho ones to grow. Hero Is
a list to choose from:
Contnurea, or "Bachelor's Button."
Petunia Moaning Glory
There you havo a round dozen of
kinds, all good, all pretty, all ensy
to grow. 1 would nt r.dvlso attempt
ing to grow all of ttein In one garden,
but parcel them out nmong the chil
dren, If there are several In the fam
ily, or get only a few kinds, If there
Is but ono child to .uke caro of them.
Confining tho selection to a few vari
eties encourages Mio beglnnor to con
ccntrato his energies rather than
spread them out indiscriminately
Insist that tho ground shall bo kept
freo from weeds, nnd Insist, also, that
"Mother, I wish you wouldn't men
tion dishwashing when Georgo is call
ing on me!"
"Why not. Indeed?"
"I don't like It It sounds com
mon." "Common, eh? We havo to eat,
"And George knows we cat and
"That's very true."
"And George alBO knows that
dishes have to bo washed, therefore
somebody has to waBh them?"
"But, mother "
"If you keep on talking about It
George may discover that you make
father wash them, and ho may think
the samo thing Is coming to him If
he should propose to mo." Detroit
First effort of a young girl In a small town In Ohio to havo a flower gar
den. Her selection Is not the best but her love of beauty prompted
her tp choose large leaf arid quick growing plants to hide the ugly side
wall of the house. Children of this kind are hungry for Intelligent di
rection In gardening and should be encouraged.

spado the ground without telling him
why you do It. Give a reason for all
you do. And do not get Impatient
over tho questions ho asks. That's
how ho is to learn things.
When you glvo a bit of ground to

understand that in order to make It
"their very own" It will bo necessary
for them to take caro of It, and you
will find them very enthusiastic over
the undertaking. But don't lot their
