of several children. Her husband when
himself was a decent ort of man, but he
had not developed his will power suffi
ciently to keep away the demon of drink
who obsessed him periodically. There
waa bed-ridden old . mother. III and
with falling mind. Now, this little laund

keep her children clean and well clothed,
and her rent paid, was angel enough to
make her home a Utile heaven of peaea
and cheerfulneea and aomfort for her
little one and for th old mother and
for the weak husband, who died blessing
th good wife, whoe existence h had
marred by his unfortunate habit. ..
Another woman who was Sjfflloted with

and distraction to her by their associa

So It Is not necessary to posse mosey,

order to mak an Ideal home.
It Is wholly and entirely a matter of

A woman wants ta ba told aura curat " hre, and what he i
had no children? And. si no l'hve them,
bat am I gtnng them besMea food and
ear? Am I giving them memories of
myself which will be an example and a
happy recollection in Urn to ooaie? Will
they recall their mother's face aa aweet
memories In after years? Or will they
think of roe aa a aeoMlng .virago and
of their, home as a place they dreaded
"Do they lore n, or fear me? What
doea home mean to them? Ar they
learning tha priceless lessons of order
and cleanliness and patience and cheer
fulness and mirth?"
Very few people think of mlrthfulnoss
as a virtue. Yet It Is one of the greatest
of ths lesser virtues. Teach a child faith,
truthfulness, honor, self-control, order,
cieanllnese. Industry, patience, unselfish
ness, kindness' of word and deed and a
mirthful view of seeming misfortunes.
Teach him how to laugh over his own
mlshspa, and to find tha amusing slds
of every accident which befalls him.
Help him to get all the fun out of life
But be sure you teach him to laugh
with people, not at them.
- He must laugh at himself, however,
whenever ha feel aa Impulse to b sorry
for himself. v -
