1. 4 GOODWIN'S WEEKLY.
H COMMENDING THE WOMAN WHOSPANKETH
H CONCERNING THE MATRONS WHO
'-, DID AND DIDN'T.
iB' (By Arthur Copp.)
HL ; i Now, it came to pass that at loud noise arose
B ' concerning the rearing of children.
B ' And there was contention whether the child
&L ' ' flourished best when mamma's slipper was hid-
B don, or when betimes It desired uprightness
jH t : mightily when grabbing the toodi'est.
H And the maidens and other honorary mom-
M bers of the Congregation of Mothers held forth
m ; against those who knew, and scoffed them.
flB "Thinkost thou," they asked, "thy kids .are like
HH boarding house beefstead, that thou shouldst
: pound them to make them good?
9H "The wise man hath given out the hunch that
lB' hot applications are needful unto the child, so
XH that it may flourish.
flB "Veril, he is a bum tout. For we say the
'- B child should not be reared at all, but given
H kindly words when its footsteps stray from the
jH righteous path."
'' 'B "It is also written, 'spare the rod and spoil
ljH the child'; but this, too, looketh! like a flim-flam.
iH For in truth it was flrst written, 'spare the child
jH and spoil the rod, and do it darn quick, for the
HI good kid needeth it not, and the tough one careth
jH , not a tinker for the twig that clrastiseth, but
Iducketh more carefully thereafter.' "
Now, tills found no favor with the Mothers.
And they reviled those who counselled them
thus, and boasted of their children which had
grown up with frequent knowledge of under-
HB I And they called in the wise man and besought

ter, in that it maketh the shrill noise and bring
eth no knowledge but to the policeman.
"I say unto thee, blessed be the matron whose
left hand knowoth what her right hand doeth,
and helpeth it out;
"For the fear of these causeth her children
to walk turkey along the paths of goodness, nor
sit they down when sinners entice them to two
"Nor do her children sass those who abide in
neighboring tents, nor the iceman ior whom her
lord looketh eagerly in the morning.
"But speak they gently to those near by; for
I say unto you, a soft word maketh easy the
quick touch, but harshness bringeth the neigh
"The wise matron, she teacheth her kids to
labor, and sheweth- unto them the virtue that lieth
in the wood pile.
"Nor doth she hesitate to unhitch the slipper
when Willie puffeth the cigarette and lieth con

"So teacheth the wise matron unto her kids;
and they listen to her and believe. For they
have felt her hand heavily upon them, and it Is
mighty in teaching wisdom."
And she related unto them a parable, saying:
"A woman of Gizeh had a son,
"And he was as a pup which waggeth his tall
and falleth over his feet; which Hketh to be fed,
and howleth when things cometh not his way.
"Nor cared he to labor, and brought no wood
for the burning, neither went he unto the market
"And when his mother asked him concerning
these things, he bewailed of the pain in his
tummy; whereat mamma chided him not, nor
handed him a hot one, but tucked her garments
aobut her and toted the kindling;
"And soothed him with goo talk, and prepared
for him unguents and sweets.
"Wherefore he grew up in Idleness, and con
sorted with sports, so that he pinched the fruit
of a neighbor's vineyard.
"Now the neighbor discovered this, and cried
out in a loud voice;
"And it came to pass that the young man was
seized with reviling, and brought before the high
priest who dispensenth justice and soaketh them
that pry off the lid.
"And the young man's lamentations availed
him not; for verily he got his plenty.
"But also there was a woman of Gizeh who
listened not unto the bewaillngs of her hopeful,
nor permitted dhe him in idleness, but handed
him one when he needed it.
"And it came to pass with this one that he
grew up in tlie fear of slothfulness, and became
great in the sight of men.
"He builded wreat works with other people's
money, nor got he pinched for these things, for
verily he was a willing worker, and picked craft
ily those he worked.
"For what saith King Solomon?
"Better it is to wear holes in Willie's clothing
than that he become a hobo; tor the hand that
wleldeth the slipper maketh solid the seats of the
THE GOOD INDIAN.
If a good Indian you should wish to find,
Take heed of this and bear it well in mind;
He need not always wear the linen fine,
He may be fond of water, or of wine.
He may be "cranky," yes, or even rude
In manner, method, talk or attitude;
But when he grasps you firmly by the hand
And looks you in the eye, you'll understand.
For one strong handshake tolls far more of worth
And the good Indian, than all else on earth;
And, when you've found him, hold him as your
For he'll stay with you to the very end.
