A mai! who has tor out ly romr Into

says that when, tivni!iUnft!y, ho told
his fathor what he wanted to ho, he
was told that a padded cell was the
only place for a hoy wiih anch crazy
ideas, ami that he was forced for years
to do that which (Sod had forbidden In
every fiber of his heltm, and nuaitist
whifh every drop of blood in him pro
tested. The futher who has made up his
mind that his son must continue his
business and keep his estate intact, is
not in a position to decide on the hoy's
bent his special aptitude, llo is pre-'udirr-d
at the very outset.
I The reason why there are so many
r-tflocre men and women in the world,
u.nd ho many failures, Is because they
never found their rkht places.
Everywhere wo see men and wom
en, enpabb of much better things, who
weie dUcourasod and diverted from
their natural bent when y 0:1111;. Their
own families did not take slock in
them; they laughed at their youns am
bitions, and strangled their aspira
tions, eitiier by harsh treatment, or,
what Is oven worse, ridicule; and their
teachers did not understand ihem.
You cannot read the seated message
which God has wrapped up In your
boy or Rlrl, and you should regard it as
varied. You should respect the dreams

him, to scoff at his dreams, to lair,'h at

Flower Dances for Children,
French mothers have been showing
unwonted Ingenuity this winter in
drPsslnR their darlings for the popular
flower dances which are now the fash
ion for Juvenile society and carry all
before them. Generally a number of
blooms are selected, and these are
called bouquet parties. The charm of
these parties is that the little peoplo
are well suited to represent flowers
Parisian society has gone daft, over
some of the designs and also thi
beauty of some of the children. Their
dresses are floral, of course.' Trails
of blooms are draped together from
the waists, the ends floating on the
airy skirts, or loose petals are scat
tered nil over the material. Hut this
gives little idea of the chic and the
detail of the dress or of the human
floweret that carries It off. Nothing
has so hit the French taste as these
flower dances, and many of the elder
spectators have grown quite senti
mental about them.
