"Go on," nodded Mr. Lane, more cu

,Earle Munson proceeded to outline
his plan. Mr. Lane was a tea nnd cof

very profitable mnll-order trade.
"Don't you see," submitted tho per
suasive nnd optimistic Munson, "that
you will have over five hundred agents.

but one order a day, that figures up
over fifteen thousand orders a year.

"It looks feasible," admitted Mr.
Lane. "You come back nt four o'clock

Munson had expected that the con
sultntion anticipated would tnkc place
in the private ofllce, but when he re
turned he found the merchant ready to
take htm to his home in his automo

ushered him among a garden group, in
troduced him to his Wife, three small
children and his daughter, Leila. The
visitor made everybody feel agreeable.
He complimented Mrs. Lane on her
lovely garden, played with tho little
ones nnd devoured the radiant daugh
ter of the home with eyes expressing
an admiration he could not; conceal.
"We'll talk right here where wo can
enjoy the beautiful evening," said Mr.
Lane, nnd on a garden seat just out
side the family circle they went into
further business details. Munson had i

PLACE CHILDREN ABOVE ALL
Little Ones Have Been Aptly Described
as Monarchs In Homes of Serbian
The tragedy of the little children of
Serbia reduced to stnrvatlon, disease
and rnggedness is really understood
only when one comprehends the In
tense love of homo nnd children that
fills all Serbian hearts.
"Tho Serbian homo is tho sanctum
of Scrblnh life," writes Miss Wpgonor,
"tho shrine beforo which tho Serbian
heart worships, tho nltnr upon which
thd products of hand and heart are
placed in simple tribute. And the
guiding spirit of the homo Is, of course,
tho woman, tho wife nnd mother. Wo
must go further, though, and say that
while the mother may bo tho guiding
spirit, the monarch of tho home Is tho
child. What wo nro preaching with re
newed Intensity today regarding the
Importance of the child, the education
of tho child, Serbia has long preached
nnd endeavored to practice. Almost
Spartan In Its creed Is the valuation
plnced upon a child life. Tho child is
more than it companion to Ills mother,
more than an heir to his father's' busi
ness, lands or wealth; ho Is the proper
ty of the state. Ho Is part of Serbia!
Everything is sacrificed to the welfare
nnd advancement of tho child."
