this: Every night before I go to bed
kneeling in front of your picture as
to the Madonna, I say a wee prayer
that goes something like this:
'Theda, dear, even as you are beauti
ful in that wild, fascinating way,
grant, oh, Lord, that I will grow to
be. even one-half "so-.beautlfuL"
A stronge burden is imposed upon
one suddenly called upon to listen
to the' confidences of thousands of
persons. , Since I have been writing
these articles I have received almost
20,000 letters from persons' who fol
low my writings andjny work. Could
I regard any one of those letters
lightly?
Quite the contrary. I am busy pre
paring to answer each-one.
Think of getting such a letter as
this, which came from Cbardon, 0.
"Sorne of our greatest ministers
are not accomplishing the good au
are at this moment. Your character
roles are sermons that touch deep
into the heart; sermons that impel
the realization of the sanctity of the
home, sermons that make v men
think."
DON'T NEGLECT CHILD'S FIRST
SET OF TEETH
Take care of the first set of teeth,
the milk, teeth. See that they are
straight and well placed. 'Mothers
should realize that badly placed
teeth deform the face of a child, and
seriously injure the Veice.
Have your teeth attended to at
least every six months. By so doing
your dental bills will amount to but
little. You wiir find that you will be
free from toothaches and many other
annoyances' which are caused by
bad teeth. Consult your family physi
cian about the baby's teeth. When
you find a physician that tells you
that teeth will right themselves, that
adenoids will disappear and that en
larged tonsils amount to nothing,
that slight deafness will pass away,
that near-sightedness will correct it
self, and that beginning nasal ca
tarrh does not need treatment, be, on
your guard because" such a man-is
dangerous.
The removal of tonsils, like the re
moval of adenoids, is a very simple
operation, almost devoid of danger,
and when done by a skilled specialist
almost invariably results in improve
ment in the patient.
Watch your child at night and see
if it habitually breathes with its
mouth open, see if theskin of the
nose -seems to be dcawn tight, see if
the child's face is that which is com
monly called a "pinched" counte
nance, n you aetecc any or tnese
signs taKe your cnua 10 a reputaDie
physician for an examination. Don't
wait to cure ill health, learn how to
prevent it Remember that a child's
first set of teeth are Jyst as important
while it has them as a second set
wfll'be later on.
