For the Better Half
El Paso has her full quota if not
more than her share of clever Incor-
rigible children and an exchange of
their philosophizing and comments
on tbe older world is aregular part of
afternoon and dionertable conversa-
tions. Did you hear what Jane eaid the
other evening?" some one says.
"No what was it?" everyone asks
for Jane is mush more entertaining
than the average grownup.
"During the day she had been very
naughty. . She called her little brother
a 'fool.' 3he was promptly spanked
and her iniquity explained to her with
strong arguments against its repe-
tition. That night when her mother
was putting her to bed she said 'Now
Jaoie when you say your prayer- you
must ask God to forgive you for calling
your brother such a naughty -.
Jane ignored the suggestion ent.-.-iy
and said her prayers through with ab-
solutely no reference to the day's sin-
ning. 'Jane why have you not done
as I told you and asked G id to forgive
you for calling your brother such a
naughty name' asked her mother
sternly. 'Oh I didn't want to bother
Him tonight' she replied loftily as
one who knew best what to do under the
circumstances 'He must have lots of
such things to tend to and I'll just wait
till I go to heaven and tell Him about
It was the same little girl who in
her delight at receiving a birthday
gift from her father looked up into
her mother's face and said "Mamma
ain't you glad you and me married that
Mary was found one day very much
absorbed in digging a hole in the lawn.
When she was asked what she was so
busy about she promptly replied:
"I am digging a bole to heil."
"Mary that is a very bad wicked
word. You must never say it again"
aid her mother shocked at her four
year old's choice of language.
"No.it isn't bad it is inSCurfew" ar-
pued the small one who had heard her
cousin read tbe poem.
Tbe mother tried to explain that
nevertheless the word was not for the
use of little girls when her daughter
broke in in a tone that showed she
felt wronged "You mean big folks and
books may use it but little girls
meya't I suppose" and the moth r
b'l to acknowledge that unjust as it
m .y be it was as her daughter said.
The best little girl In the world asked
her mother one day: "Why didn't you
name me Horace so I would hare been
The same best little girl in the world
ia a vary earnest mother to her dolls
and often repeats the events of the
lives of the grown up world around
her in ber dolls' affairs in a way that
shows up many of the foibles and In-
consistencies of big folks' ideas though
of course she does not know what a
quaint little moralist she is when she
plays with her dollies. Her mother
always takes doll troubles and joys
very seriously and is always ready to
cdvisein any emergency in the doll
household. One day the bast little
girl oame into the library and announc-
ed plaintively that her. doll Henrietta
had the measles and was all alone in the
nursery. Henrietta's mother's mother
was sympathetic and asked "Where
is the nurse?"
"Nurse fell down and broke her arm
and can't take care of Henrietta to-
day." said Henrietta's mother.
"Well why don't you go back and
take care of your sick child?" asked
Henrietta's mother's mother.
''Cause I bava to go to the club to-
day and can't" said Henrietta'
mother plaintively with evident re-
gret that her club duties should call
her away from her sick ohild. Tbe
doll's mother's mother being herself
a reasonably conscientious club woman
understood. As she was first of all a
conscientious mother she was not re-
buked only amused at tbe way her
daughter -mirrored the big world in
her little one.
Another irrepressible said of her
tiny baby cousin "Oh Mary Elizabeth
can say almost anything papa and
mamma and dog and all; that id" she
continued upon her a-sertion being
questioned "she makes the cutest lit-
tle goo-goo nolte that sounds like a lot
of different things."
This same six year old understands
more than her years warrant and per-
haps of ten speaks more wisely than
the understands. She never is emi e-
ly without rea-ion. She wanted to rtde
her bicycle on Sunday and when ber
mother objected because of the day
ber daughter broke out indignantly ' O
you'r a regular Presbyterian."
"Whit do you mean?' asked he"
mo'her surprised at the child's evident
discrimination batwten the two creed-
especially as the family was whole
soulel Episcopalian. "Well" declar-
ed th child "if you were a resllf
Rplfcopallan you'd let me rlda up aod
down just inside tbe yard. IvV j i-t
like a Pretby terlan not to let me." No
one knows where she learned thus to
discriminate in the practical Chistlan-
Ity of the t0 church s but no on
told ber that ber argument was unrea-
sonable. Nor are tbe boTS dull either. A
mall fellow not a half dozen yer
old who is alwats call d a terror b
his ictimatrs was nut waH.ing with
il aurit one dav when a small h
- anglng on a gate called out aj iiv
"Hello George" to t br hero of thi
'airt. Gjorg mndn no response to tho
greeting ad his unt who wished hin
to beapo i'e Mttl-boy remonstrated
with him. She knew tht he oceas'or
lly played with the little boy to ahf
"You know that little boy. George.
Why don't you ppeak to him?"
"I don't know him and I don't want
to know him. My prayers are plenty
long enough and too long now" the
boy replied. It seems tbe little fellow
bad to finish up his "Now I lay me"
every night with a petition to God to
bless each separate individual of his
family and each of his playmates and
he was setting about to rigorously cur.
tail the list so he could go to sleep
sooner of nights.
It is difficult for grownups to realize
how different is the child's world un-
less they remember well their own
childhood or set about systematically
to watch the child mind develop and
exert all of their sympathy to under-
stand as some mothers do. The child
is not only Absolutely lacking in hun-
dreds of little experiences that have
gone to make up the mental coloring
of the grown up intelligence but every
word is almost a new and unfamiliar
tool for their busy thoughts to try.
Children can never ask enough ques-
tions to satisfy their eager curiosity
and the half-complete and only half-
comprehended answers that they get
have to be eked out by lively imagin-
ings. They are always wanting to get
at the bottom of things and if tney are
not answered patiently and even wten
they are they fill out the meagre
replies of information that grown ups
give them with pictures and compari-
sons familiar in their own little world.
A child may ask where the fi ures go
when they are washed off tbe slate and
Ifanswered with an "I don't know"
he immediately eels about to imtgine
a series of events taken from what he
happens to know of bugs crawling
do n holes or birds flying away rain
soaking in tbe ground aunties go
ing away on the trains or fairies put-
ting on invisible caps and satisfies
himself that it must be by some such
way that the figures make their ex-
it. They go somewhere in some way
and the child probes about until be
finds an explanation that agrees with
bis understanding of things
Grownups will say God to a child and
try to give him some hint of the G d
idea but as it is difficult for the older
mind to understand and explain
God's omnipotence to itself it is no won-
der children have fantastic notions of
deity. One mother who tries to think
with her little ones says that her baby
girl confuses the ideas of God eraodpa
and Santa Claus. The little one if just
emerging from swaddling clothes and
helplessness and is on the threshold of
ber individual life beginning to make
seatences out of her few words and to
think little short thoughts. To her
God grandpa and Santa Claus are all
th'-ee.big powerful beings unseen giv-
ers of good things and kind and lov-
ing to little girls. She has had
to take her mother's word for
all three. Her grandfather visits ber
home once a year and she cannot
stretch her baby memory over the
time that intervenes between the vis-
Its so he is classed with God as an
unseen power of whom her mother ao
often speaks. At Christmas Santa
Claus emerged from the haze that
hitherto enveloped the great three.
Her mother took her down town to a
big shop and she saw Santa Claus' own
big fat white-bearded jolly self.
Probably in another year she will be
able to remember ber grandfather and
then God only will be tbe unseen.
The tale is told of another little girl
to whom there was given a careful ex-
planation of God and something of the
stpry of Christ. She seemed to under--tand
and evidently was turning the
idea over in her bby thoughts she
being four years and beginning to brag
of the coming of her fifth summer. .
One day some time after she had
been told of God and Christ she was
looking at a holy picture and asked
who the central figure was.
"That 16 Cbrist." she was told.
"O I thought he was a horse" said
the little one greatly disappointed that
tbe DivineOne was as other men. To
ber baby mind a horse was the great
all-beautiful all-powerful idea and
when Christ's attributes were de-
scribed to ber she immediately flx-d
upon a horse as the proper shape for
divinity to assume.
Dark heavy costumes for elderly
ladies are relieved of their sombreness
by having vests of rich hued brocades.
To cure us of our immediate love of
ea'n we should seriously consider bow
many goods there are tbat money will
not purch4u and these the best; and
bow many evils there are that money
will not remedy and these tbe worst.

A recent book on etiquette and the
proper schooling' for girls says that
fashionable youog ladies are not taught
"accomplishments" as they used to be.
It has not been very long since a girl
was expected to pa nt a little play a

little of many arts and in some ways it
was not a bad idea after all. Fashionable
mammas nowadays however cboee that
their daughters snould only be trained
in music long enough to see whether
or no they have special aptitude for it.
If nr then music is dropped. Drawing
is treated in tbe same way. Nowadays
a girl needs to know bow to waltz and
to play tennis and golf and to ride
well and French is as necestary to her
as gloves. So says one who has

The price was 8800 but as tbe women
of tbe church raised the money by giv

mate was that when all tbe items rf
cost were flgu-ed in the carpet bad cost
fully C40l'0. He reached this astonish-
ing total by estimating tbe work wor-

heartaches of one hundred women; the
heroic efforts of men women and
