What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

No matter what a fond mother de- clares she wishes the fairy godmother to bestow on her child at its birth, in her heart of hearts she wishes her phild to be beautiful. No amount of wishing seems to have any power in the matter, and what the fates decree has to be submitted to. No matter whether the beauty be much or little, It is impossible to add to it, but with care it can be preserved, for, sad to relate, many people spoil their good looks in early childhood through being allowed to form undesirable habits of those funny little ways which are peculiar to the early stages of life. Who is there who has not reveled In the delight of the pastime which grownups call \gat:goyling?\ It con- sists in making the face fascinatingly ugly by stretching the... mouth to its fullest extent, pushing the nose up and pulling the ears forward. It is dis- astrous to the very young, who by this means obtain very premature wrinkles and find their ears permanently out- standing. It should be severely dis- couraged in young children, and on no account should such antics be reward- ed by a smile, no matter how comical the child may look. Similarly the frowns of bad temper should be avoided, and this can only be done by removing the cause. Tem- per, whether of the passionate or the sulky variety,, is largely a matter of habit, and a very undesirable one, too, but a child must be taken in hand at a very early age if it is to be taught to control its temper. A child's feelings are all on the surface, and it is easily possible to divert the mind to some other subject than that which caused the outburst of temper. Sulkiness gen- erally arises from resentment on the part of an elder. It is extremely in- fectious, and the parent who sulks with a child need not be astonished if the child shows symptoms of the same complaint Another trick of childhood which is also associated with bad temper is the dangerous habit of biting the nails. The ill result, which is apparent to all, is 'short and ugly finger nails, which can never be made beautiful again, even by the most skillful manicurists. The real danger of the habit, however, lies in the sharpness of the small par- ticles swallowed, which are quite capa- ble of giving rise to an attack of ap- pendicitis. Connected with the fingers also Is the habit of thumb sucking, which commences when the gums are swollen and painful at the time of cutting the Iteeth. At the earliept signs of thumb ' sucking the thumb ' , should be . taken out and a rubber ring given as a sub- stitute, or, better still, the child should be given a little drop 'pf cold water to drink. It seems hard to check a I habit which may soothe mid comfort a young child, but there is the future to be considered, and a continuance of the habit leaves its mark in an ugly, pointed thumb and deformed mouth, In which the upper lip and the top teeth are unduly projecting, while the lower parts of the mouth are receding. The evils arising from sucking a \dummy\ resemble those of thumb sucking as far as deformity of the mouth is concerned, and with both there is the evil of overexcited salivary glands through the constant sucking. It would be a good thing if the sale of this , injurious article were illegal, as in France. Nursery Qu i Its. Distinctive quilts for the little tots' room are a joy to the children and a delightful task for mothers. They are very expensive if bought and less in- dividual, of course. Here are a few Ideas for the homemade design that will make nursery quilts things to be remembered In after years, besides t* lag present joys. The flower quilt always holds great attraction for youngsters. If the nurs- ery be papered in daisy paper the carrying out of this idea is one of the easiest things Imaginable., On a founda- tion of silk poplin, or, best of all, un- bleached muslin, arrange the daisies in a straight border, the stems grow- ing from a plain band on the edge of the quilt, continuing around the four sides. To make the daisies, cut an oval four Inches long and one Inch at its great- est width. Make a pattern of a petal three inches by about three-quarters of an inch. Cut out sixteen of these from white muslin if your background is a color. Make the center yellow in this case. If you are going to have yellow petals the center should be a golden brown. Stems in this quilt should be straight, with here and there a leaf. Arrange the petals arbund the cen- ter—under It—and place the stem un- der one edge. Sew around the edges without turning in, using the sewing machine or quick running stitches by hand. This is a very attractive design, the idea being capable of many different treatments In the field of flowers. Pop- pies, tulips, roses, daffodils, clematis may be used. and one flower quilt has a huge basket, upset. from which are tumbling In confusion dear to the child's heart all kinds of Noma= that spread out to the corners of the quilt. In this pattern all colors of Ma- terials are used. The variegated eit`seh Is of continuous interest te ts MO Wait MABEL'S CHITCHAT What One Woman Thinks of the Suffrage Question. EDUCATE, NOT AGITATE An Up to Date Interpretation of the Old Adage, \A Soft Answer Turneth Away Wrath\ — Simple Household Convenience That Saves Time. Dear Elsa—Our woman's club had its first meeting of the season yesterday, and the guest of honor was a talker of the wordy but unconvincing sort, one who never gets anywhere except on one's nerves. The lady's subject was suffrage, and when she' • had finished laying down the law that ought to be my feelings were similar, methinks, to those of Henry Ward Beecher, who when subjected in his own pulpit to a like dissertation rose and in a calm, dispassionate manner said to the tired congregation, \And I still believe that women should speak in public.\ Nasty remark? Yes, it certainly was. But Mr. •Beecher's sense of humor, I believe, was often known to upset his manners. You asked we ill your last letter how I stood on the suffrage question. I stand, to use an Irishism, \on the fence.\ There is a powerful lot of talk going on among women as to whether they want to vote, or not. But, do you know, it seems to me that. this is hardly the question. I feel that If it is right we shall get it whether we want it or not. The real querion as It appears to me is, Are we prepared to vote if we had the opportunity? - It is a tremendous responsibility .we women will have to face if we de get the franchise, and if we are to do the good we are expected to do we must know how to handle the weapon if it Is put into our hands. So strong are my convictions on this subject that I have urged the club Committee in charge of entertaining to ask a well known lecturer to give us a course' in civil government MS winter, so that we may be not only prepared for the ballot if it comes o :but should also learn something of the principles upon which various govern- ments are founded. So, dear, in a few months I expect to be a very learned lady in civic affairs. Frankly, now, I do not know whether I want to vote or not, but I do think that in the meanwhile it is better to educate than to agitate. \The bunch,\ as Dick calls three or four of the girls who trot around to- gether, were having a heart to heart talk over the teacups at our himise the other afternoon, and in some way the old, old story of disagreements be: tween husband and wife was touched upon. Louise D. surprised us all by telling her first experience of this kind and how she met it. \When Ed and I married,\ she said, \we had an agreement on this point. We knew that there were sure to be times when things would not run smoothly and we'd have disagree- ments. We had experienced a little friction of this kind during our court- ship, so we made this agreement: If an argument began or if one spoke sharply to the ether about anything, no matter what, the second one was to keep perfectfy quiet and not 'answer back.' We both realized that it was not what was originally said that made the trouble, but that it was in the 'answering back,' and then, if this was committed on both sides the result was almost surely to be a serious quarrel. , \Well we agreed to try this quiet treatment if the expected disagreement came, and, sure enough, it did come. It was over a very trivial affair, and. 1. am sorry to say that I was the aggres- sor in the first case, although I have not always been the first to start it since. Ed lived right up to his part of the agreement and never said a word, and I felt so ashamed that I could have welcomed a beating. At any rate, that argument stopped just about where It began. I think Ed had the same 'experience the first time he was the aggressor, and he, too, began to keep a very careful watch upon his tongue. So you see our plan has work- ed beautifully, not only in helping . us to avoid unpleasant •discussions, but also from keeping us from beginning them.\ Not a bad idea, is It? Simply a new way of applying the soft an- swer adage. '• Here's another hint one of the girls of \the bunch\ told us about that Is worth passing on. It seems that the linen closet In her home Is in the hall, and as she could not have a table there she was forced to sort the wash out on the nearest bed and then carry it piece by piece to the closet. This proe- ess was both tirestime and not particu- larly hygienic. Some one asked her why she d:dn't have a hinged shelf put • up. Of course Dorothy never had thought of su h a thing in this connec- tion, buf the Idea germinated into what has been a great convenience in stmt. Ing the wash. A wide, thin board was hinged on to the lowest shelf of the closet, just as a leaf is hinged on to a kitchen table. When this leaf Is not In use it goes down flat, hut when it Is needed for sorting clothes the flap is pulled out, i and, with the assistance of a eouple of supports underneath, it is made firm for the work in hand. It is one of the very simple contrivances that one se seldom thinks of, but are of such in- finite service when found.
