DOTIKB IN THE HOUSEHOLD.
v aya in Wblok Children can bo
" -. ...! Ia TtistMinlvni' anil
A-rrah narenU are proverbial for
the indulgence of their children and
in many cases this indulgence is car-
ried io far that the children eclipse
their parents and bend 'all household
ws to suit tneir cnnaisn caprices.
In many homes children are waited up-
0n too much and would be happier and
loiter if they were trained to render
Hule services to their elders. A child's
nmral activitv and pride delights in
duties and responsibilities that are not
loo burdensome and there is no keen
cr pleasure for a wclbtramed boy or
girl than the sense of being trusled.
The characteristics may be devoloped
' and these natural activities trained in-
to helpful deeds.
The mother takes endless steps and
constant care of each little one and as
soon as possible she should begin to
require little services. It takes longer
(or the little feet to toddle across the
floor for the pencil than to go one's
self but so will it be with every at
f t ... ...ill Vn MtV-i aifurn 4t. I
tempt at training the uuskilled hands
and feet. It is easier for the mother
to ?ew the seam to darn the stocking
ot to make the btcad than to guide
the daughter's awkward fingers in the
same work but any sensible woman
knos thata mother' who fails to teach
these things does both the child and
herself an injustice.
There are countless services that
are within the capacity of even very
joung children. Picking up their play-
things pushing the chairs into their
proper places handing trifles to each
other carrying messages from one ad-
ult to another are some instances.
Children can be taught always to
put thetr clothes upon a chair and not
drop them on the floor; to hang up
their coats and hats If low hooks are
provided for them; to hang up the
towels and wring out the wash cloths
instead of leaving them in a damp
heap. Where there are. set bowls chil-
dren should not be allowed to leave
dirt) water standing nor under any
circumstances leave soap soaking A
hassock or box should be prosnded
that the child can reach. Witn a little
supervision a child ol 5 should be able
to take his own bath and pick out his
oun clean clothes He can be taught
to fix his clothes at night so that turn
ed sltees and twisted stockings need
not make him late to breakfast. Girls
at six and seven eurs old can put
awav clean clothing when brought in
its basket to the chamber floor. They
can bnng the baby's clothes to mama
each child having the pleasant liberty
of choice in bib and gown and petti-
coat Uoih boys and girls can spread op-
en their beds in the morning even
if it is quite a tug and sheets and blan-
kets get all awry. Soiled clothes can
be put into their proper place by their
owners. Then there are the match safes
to be filled m each room and the
burnt match receptacles to be emptied.
It takes but a Tew glances from sharp
eves losee them and a lew steps from
nimble feet to do the work but such
lutle things are a heh to a busy moth-
er who has two ways to turn for every
moment. When the little son can
sweep the steps with his own small
broom and pirk up the paper that con-
tinual advertising brings into the door-
jard He can pick up the chips and
fill the wood box or basket and learn
to lay the open fires. There are the
inkstands to be filled and the pencils
to be sharpeiud for both mama and
papa. These can be trusted to older
children. Unsightly scattered news-
papers can be piled neatly and how
proud a child will feel when he can
read and can omhct recent from the
old papers. The half grown daughter
can water the plants feed the bird and
fill the vases and empty them too be-
fore the flowers have littered the table
with their drooping petals.
When she visits grandmama or aun-
tie what a good chance she has to learn
how to cook some little dish with which
to suprise mamma!
These few hints of loving duties and
helpful ways serve to illustrate how
girls and boys can be taught little by
little to want to be hclplul to see for
themselves things Iq do and ways to
show their love by thoughtlul atten-
tions. They learn to tins way to be
orderly industrious considerate and to
have some anm-ectatton of the many
Some children learn quickly without
BiigRcstidnsi but no mother ought to
be discouraged if she has not only to
ask but to remind a. child many times
of his duties. Plenty of prilse ond no-
tice for the little deeds will help a weak
memory while gentle blame or careful
showing of what caused the failure will
stimulate the pride and interest until
that mighty power the habit of helpful
ncss has been thoroughly implanted
and will go on naturally and easily.
Eastor at flomo.
The mother of three young children
said when planning for a little extra
treat on a holiday "I don't know
what will happen to my children in the
future but I am going to try to make
them happy now." That mother was
wise for if as the greatest educators of
the day tell us the first seven yeais of
life are the most important a happy
childhood is most desirable. One of
the methods to makt children nappy
and instju jn tejr mn(a a ove for
homCt s by akin a litle trouble to
celebrate the birthdays and special
. i .
days of the year.
One of these days which is cuming
to be more and moie generally obser-
ved is the Eastertide. Naturally this
observance in the rural disirtcts lacks
somethipg ol the accessories of hot-
house flowers beautiful music and jp
propnate decorations yet much may
be done to keep the spirit of the day.
We wish to refer specially to keep-
ing the day in the home. It will be
little trouble to color a few eggs for
the children; or better let them do it
with you and give them to their Iriends.
Any one who can paint a little can
make dainty Eister fggs by carefully
removing the contents by piercing a
tiny hole in one end Taint a spray of
flowers on each end tie wiih a narrow
ribbon matching the colors used.
Make the breakfast Easter morning
something a little out Of the way.
having dishes appropriate in color and
character as eggs honey yellow but-
ter white buscuits etc. Easter cards
may be had at very slight expense
which are really artistic but il not pos-
sible to procure them their place may
be well supplied by cards laid at eacn
plate bearing the name of the person
3nd a quotation either a Bible verse
or some of the exquisite Easter thoughts
in prose and verse. These should be
read aloud after all are seated.
If there is no Eister celebration at
the church or at the Sunday school a
Utile care will enable a family to have
one of their own Children enjoy-
nothing more than to learn and recite
little poems and to sing. Exquisite
bits of verse and appropriate songs are
to be f lund in the kindergarten collec-
tions such as: "Snowdrops lift ycur
liny heads" or the music found in this
issue of the Western Rural.
If roses and lilies are missing it may
be some of the mother's house plants
will have chosen ibis time to burst mto
blossom; the pussy willows have ap-
pea red and we doubt not in many
bcilities the first spring flowers can
be found by those who know where to
look for them All these things speak
