It is a matter of history that when
Greece was populated by the most
beautiful human beings the world
has ever known, .women about to be
come mothers were surrounded by
beautiful things and their comfort
was considered of much importance
to the welfare of the state.
I have known, personally many
young mothers who have given their
children poetical and artisticvtemper
aments by keeping in touch with the
greatest artists and their works at
All I tried to make of my baby was
that she should be a joyous child. I
do not want her to be hypersensitive
and so outside my work I went out
a good deal. I made myself under
stand as never before that happiness
is a state of mind and more than
ever I enjoyed simple things.
Every one remarks how wonder
fully good-natured little Flo is.
Of course, I took particularly good
care of my health, but I did not go
I had plenty of outdoor exercise.
I tried not to get annoyed and, above
all, I put fear behind me.
I did not take my condition too se

BABY BIBS ARE SMALL
vBy Betty Brown
"Whether or not he wears a tucker,
baby must surely wear a bib, and
only the softest, downiest fabrics are
good enough to place under the pre
cious baby's chin.
In the trousseau of a New Year's
baby I saw the small bib I have
sketched here. Most of the new bibs
are small. This one is made of the
finest white lawn edged with lace. A
tiny fluted ruffle of lawn may be sub
stituted for the lace.
The hand embroidery is in the
most delicate blue. Of course, so
dainty a bib is only for "dress-up"
occasions. A simple feather-stitch
trims the simple, every-day biblet,
