THREE GENERATIONS IN HOME 1 Soothla K.ffriM et laras and (iraaiwmia on Hot Tempera of Vuik Mnrrlril Couples. II V KM I IB riUlETi Mcmlier of the Krench Academy.) TomiK married people often quarrel.

Toil Much Happiness. -'tou.iig collides are often Buffering fioni ft satiety of happiness and the remedy of this Is in the child, but it Is certainly also in the giandparcnt. Solitude i deux In happiness has Its drawback Uie too rlose intimacy.. The . Intimacy Is ' fortunately , broken by; the child, but more, fortunately ! mill by. the older people, w ho are not yet , too old and w ith whom you can talk, ex . change views and ideas, together with , whom you have pleasures . which do. not ' enter into your relations with 'the child. Crandfather and grandmother art like liirhf conductors for the too close inti macy which makes happiness monoto nous. Tonlradlct me once in a while that I may feel that we are two," said an .Orestes to a Pylades, who was too much of an Achates. Generally young couples contradict one another too much, but soino times they do not contract enough I In both cases advices are weclome. In the first case they conciliate In the sec ond they bring 'In varieties, in the first case they establish harmony In the sec ond they add a new instrument to the .concert. One feels that one is being watched, certainly, : and the craving for independ- em e crows when you feel that ou are not autonomous, that you do not belong tn ynurseli. "I his Is a heavy burden. I lo not deny this. You always feel 4he 'tu'onven!cr.ce cf ft thing, the abaonce of which yuu -would dtplort if it were not the.c. sfucli Is the character of the human heart. Hut everybody has his duties, even grandparents, and it their children have the duty of being respectful, the grandparents have the duty of being dis crete. They must preserve moderation and give to the children a certain amount of autonomy In time and space. They nra councillors, confidential advisers, pro tectors and preservers, but must often be content with being witnesses. A really wise man is a man who knows a well when to be absent as when to be present, when to shut his eyes aa well a when to open them. Surveillance at Uooil Thlna. The art of I'fo cons'sle partially in knowing how to plRce yourself In a re lation to clrcunntancos which In a gen eral way force us to be what we want to be and prevent us from doing what wc ccldentally much 'wish to do. In a gen. eral way you may feel a desire to be unfaithful to your wife or to your hus band. It. is in' this Utter cane, that the surveillance by older people Is disagree able tu us. You muft then lmiiHxllely tell yourself that the day will ronieAvhen ou will he huppy to linvo done, with a little help, that which harmonizes with your general -tendency and will, though you would willingly have listened to your first accidental Impulse, and you will congratulate yo.ire'f because of the ob staeln that came In the way of your uccldental desire. Although I have some sympathy with tho wife who Is unfaith ful to her husband because of the road Inf.ttuatlon of a moment and who lo,ves her huMiund no less for that. I do not adlvxe those who ate Inclined towards unfaithfulness to consider that even the dream of unfalthfulnens leaves no pleas ant memories behind. As there Is nothing more exquisite about love than the dream of it and the memories It leaves behind. It is sufficient to have dreamed of a lover and remember your dream, lor un faithfulness itself leaves nothing but sad and disturbing memories. leneflclal tn Children. Early marriage and the presence of the grandparents, if useful to the young couple, are still more beneficial to the children. Early marriage diminishes the difference in age and sentiments. between parents and children. It Is this difference that Montaigne wants to : make very great that the son may not become the rival of his father on the battlefield, In business. In the pursuit of honor, that the father may be ready to retire when the activity of the son begins. It Is no longer suitable In our days. As for rvalry, twenty years dlffertnce In age la sufficient that it may not become dangerous to the father, and on'the other side It Is an excellent thing for the son of twenty to have a father of forty, be- u the father will then at the same time be able lo fill the place of a friend. u eomiade. an advisor and protestor who will be in full vigor, while If he were sixty his strength would alrewdy lte on the decline and his way of thinking quite different from that of his son. Montaigne never thinks of bringing up of children by their parents and in this regard a great difference in age between father and son, mother and daughter Is a very serious drawback. When you are W and 10. respectively, you still understand one another, but when you are 40 or 4i and Ul, understanding is difficult, not to say Impossible. Kducallon partly con sists In Itving over again your own child hood In your children, giving them the benefit of your experiences. In becoming a child once more to understand how to guide and advise a child. You may be ablu to live your childhood over again until yuu are 30. at 40 It is difficult, at 50 impossible. I know this from my own experience as a teacher. At 22 I was a very good teacher, at 30 I was excellent. at 40 I was a poor success, at uO I would have been a miserable failure. It is necessary fur a child to have happy and Ught-hcarted parents who are able to understand and take part In its Joys and pleasures. All good men have had good parents and neurasthenics are only those who have had melaucholy parents. "Cul non rlsere parcntes." Jolly Parents Bearer. There are almost no more guy and jolly parents nowadays; they are all nearly 40 or 50. it is a disaster to a generation to have had parents whose Joy of living was a thing of the past. The child who sees qnly its parents is cheated of part of lis life. It sees only one side of life and the sight of human life as a whole Is an excellent and very essential element In education. A child mint have before Its eyes Infancy Im personated by Its brothers or sisters, youth and middle age by 'Its mother and fathers, ripe and okl age by Its. grand patents. I had a father and a mother who were far too old for me, and, old grandfather and grandmother, though my grand father's soul had remained young. I felt very well that I missed something. The gap tu filled' by my uncle',' a splendid young man, only 20 years older than I, who came to live with us. Webecame great friends, for he was a good natured and Jolly fellow, lie taught me something of life and also a good many games, lie was Just old enough to huve been my father and thanks to him my register was now com plete. I found In him something of the father I ought to have had as far as age la concerned, while in my father t found a grandfather and In my 1 real grandfather a great grandfather. v This was very convenient. A child should have an opportunity to observe life In all Its phases. . .There Is no better preparation for life Itself.

Doherty, a rscer. was se verely and probably permanently injured during the automobile races last summer. He was driving about sixty miles an hour before a race when Joseph 'G. Zlm mer and 11. It. Marquardt tried to cross the track in a car. He etruclc them. He sued them and the Speedway company, alleging negligence and carelessness, one of.'the iipecirio charges being that-tho track was not oiled and dust prevented his seeing the other car. The. Ppeedwgy company; answer sets up the defense that Doherty knew the danger when he drove on the track and assumed the rl.k. Zlmmer 'and Mar quardt have not yet filed their answers. The key i in success tn business Is the Judicious and pera'stent ise of newspaper advertising. George O. "Wallace Is home from ft. Louis where he attended a meeting of the committee of ninety-seven, Men and Religion Forward Movement.) Mr. Wal lace also took oecsslon to look Into the methods of conducting tho eight-day campaign In" 8t. Louis, similar- to the campaign which will be conducted In Omaha the last week in March, and will report to the committee, ha vlng charge of the Omaha movement at Its next meet ing. Mr. Wallace states that the committee of nlnetv-seven Js enthusiastic over the great growth of Interest which men of all classes sre showing. Not only are mem bers of Christian churches aroused, but leaders In the Corns n Catholic and Jew ish churches are co-operating In a num ber of cities, while leading citizens In many cities who are not members of sny church express their confidence In the good that must result from such cam paigns. About one-third of the Cities to be visited bv the teams who hold from five to eight-day campaigns of direction and Instruction have already had their cam paigns and reports were, received from these. Minneapolla was- the first city touched and because of the experimental staae of the movement at that time did not see Immedlste results a clearly as if the campaJgn-had been conducted later. However, the reports from Minneapolis are extremely interesting. Mr. Wallace says that Omaha was pe culiarly fortunate In having- tho campaign at so late a date, not only on account of th accumulated force of the movement which will be behind the work when Omaha Is reached, but because of the greater experience which the specialists can bring to their work here. Mr. Wal lace, after studying the preparations made at 8t. Louis, comes back much en couraged with the situation here and feels that the lending church men of Omaha and the churches are into the work here as heartily aa anywhere In the country.
