OBJECT OF MOTHERS' MEETINGS.
Set Forth in a Paper Hand by Airs.
Mrs. D. B. Hand had charge of a
very Interesting mothers meeting at
the regular meeting of the Women's
Christian Temreiance Union yester
day afternoon. After devotional exer
cises, Mrs. Amelia Smith read an ar
ticle entitled "Object of Mothers' Mcet
lnns." It Is to study the methods of
child training which will develop tho
strongest character and give to the
child the best teaching possible to fit
It for ths responsibilities of life, said
Mrs. Smith. Virtue and innocence are
not interchangeable terms. Innocence
Is the early condition of the mind of
tho child before it has mingled with
the world, while virtue is the knowl
edge of good and evil crystallzed Into
the will to do right. The mother
should not allow the child to encounter
untaught, tho evil of the world. Not
protect after they have heard one side,
but forearm and forewarn, opening
their eyes to the dangers of life's
pathway. With mother's love and
mother's prayers we can point out the
narrow way that leads to the white
heights of purity.
Mothers' meetings are to encourage
mothers to help each other in the
right training of children, to enthuse
energy In the practical lines of culture,
and to make careful preparations for
this great and noble profession of
home making and child training and
A leaflet was also read on "The Sa
credness and Responsibility of Mother
hood" "by the Pennsylvania, superin
tendent of mothers' meetings, Mrs. E.
S. Stevfns. It showed that the child
is Just what the parents make it, and
provoktd quite a discussion of the prac
tical suggestions for the light train
ing of the child from babyhood. This
should be done chiefly by love.

Made n Mistake.
Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: With your kind permission I will
use space enough in your valuable paper
to contradict an article which appeared
In last Sunday's Issue of the Elmlra Telo
gram. The artlclo referred to a riotous
time said to have taken place on the last
Taj lor car. For tho Information of those
who don't know anything about the said
riotous time I would like to state that I
have conducted the last Taylor car for
the past eight months and no such a scan
dalous affair has taken place on my car.
If the West Side correspondent of tho
Telegram hasn't got a watch he had bet
ter Inqulro tho time and avert future
mistakes in that line.
Perhaps, though, ho Is looking for a rep
utation as a modern Ananias. It such Is
the case he is making a very good begin
ning. There is still another excuso for
his making such an error. Perhaps he
had imbibed too frfely of Hendham's
favorlto beverage and did not kuow
whether he was on a street car or a wheel
barrow. At any rate he has made a sad mistake
and If he Is a gentleman he will correct It,
