OF INTEREST TO MOTHERS.
Are the richest kiddies the happiest
in the land or are the happiest babies
the richest in the land?
The millionaire mother who raises
her little son like a crown prince and
has him guarded as if he were going
to some day inherit a throne thinks
her baby is the happiest in the land,
but other fond mothers think she is
mistaken. They believe that only'a
"poor" baby can be really happy.
When the "poor" child is a babe in
arms the mother hangs over it, puts
the tiniest stitches in the precious
baby dresses and kisses it at every

over the threshold it is the mother
and not a stern governess who runs
and picks him up. This "poor" baby
is left to play alone sometimes and
given a chance to spill .a bottle of ink
or pdur mamma's best perfume out
of the window "to see it wain." This
baby can play in a sand pile on pleas

dishes to pass the time away and
make mud pies and play with rag
dolls and have just oodles of fun!

the time that is left him. The rattles
rattle louder than ever, the toy horses
'rock harder and the small voices get
stronger and shriller. Baby doesn't
need a maid to put him to bed and
bogey man cant get him while mam
ma is near.
Rag dolls, mud pies -and often
times even mamma is denied the

rich babies are not the happiest ba
