MISTAKES OF MAKING CHILDREN
SLAVES TO THEIR CLOTHES.
Hints to Tonus Ladies IVlxo Rusticate.
Helen Hunt J.-tckson Loc and Ideal

Paragraphs and Items.
One of the most frequent minor mistakes
of parents is the making of childien slaves to
their clothes. I know -whole families of
children v. ho have never realty' breathed a
free breath, so many cautions have they re
ceived about soiling or tearing their clothes,
md in mch ftar ha e they stood of the con
sequences of such petty disasters. It is
wicked and ci t:el to di ess children in such a
manner that their freedom is restricted by
thoughts of their clothing and all the frolic
some pleasures of childhood practically for
bidden to tLem. There are feu- things which
make one more unhappy than to see a num
ber of little girb standing around on a Minny
lawn of a summer morning all dressed in im
maculate finery, and v. ith dainty shoes upon,
their feet, to whose existence one solitary
childish 1 omp v.-ould prove fatal.
I have seen them many a time standing
aroand in tins manner, not daring to do a
tingle naturjl or childUh thing for fear of
their clothes lwing soiled and they being re
proached thei ef or. It is pitiable and exas
perating. The folly of such mothers is only
equaled by their cruelty, for it is both foolish
and cruel thus, to lepress joung childien.
How can such children have health the di
ilxvine biitbright of all children.' How
can they develop any of their natural powers?
How can they lay the foundations of any edu
cation w hit h Is v 01 tb. the name unless they
are allowed a chance to make their own fico
observation of the phenomena of the natural
01 11 ? A irfect unconsciousness of their
clothing is ono of the natural i ights of chil
dren. They should Iw so dressed that they
'hull not fcl their clothing as restricting any
natural action, and in such material as can
be easily cleaned made so simple that the
number of pi?es v hich goes to the laundry
is of no imiKrtanec. Thus only can they bo
ically hnnpy and free, and capable of de
sloping their bodies and minds in a natural
manner. Strong, heay shoes, fice irom tho
bih h""3s which make cripples of so many of
our Utile girls, aie indispensable.
A gii I ha- as nun h right to these things as
a boy. And she has tho same right to 1 tin
and romp, to raco thiough the dowy gnus,
and to climb tho highest tiee if she l.e so
minded. If she could be saved from her
clothes, liberated fiom her shoes, cmanci-pat-.I
fiom hnr complexion, and allowed to
lead a natural, simplo life till she is obliged to
.'Lssume the propiieties of joung ladyhood,
there would be more healthy and heart anil
happy women in this land, more happy
homts, and fewer little graves on tho hill
side. The slavery of drc-.i will begin soon
enon0h for all gn Is; let them at least be fico
fiom its tyranny in childhood. They need
not l tastelessly or unattractively attired
oven to do this. Simplicity m clre.sK is always
charming in the young, and for children it is
the only propriety. And with simple attiro
give them plenty ot freedom to enjoy it.
Don't lay too many lcstrictions upon them.
Let them enjoy life in their own way. Don't
try to cramp them all into ono mold. Lot
each one deM;lop along tho hue of his own
indi iduahty. Thus only can there Le any
originality in this commonplace world.
Helen Hunt J.jrkson'H Sensit Iycim-s.
Xo on" loved lcauty moio than she; no
one could depreciate the body moio when it
began to lo-e its freshness. For strong
young men m their prime, for blooming guLs
and nmtuio womanhood, she had an admit a
1 ion :is frank and almost as unqualified as a
Giec k's. But her very adoration of plrysical
locliuess made her peculiarly sensitive to
inijieifectio'i and the dismal accompaniments
of Mckuess. In her own case, w hen accident
bi ought infirmity upon her, it was icceived
at first with a shudder of disgust, a kind of
qui "k i'2ij.u!-ie scorn, of which, peihai'S,
on'j noble natures aie capable. She spoke of
her illness as "a career of disgrace." It was
pot, : robabh , for the loss of creatine com
forts, nor ecn tho long train of afflictions
which it entailed; these she could endure;
they proved, in fact, :5 field for tlw exeiciso
of a fortitude which was little short of heroic.
Health meant liberty, its lov, an endless
t-ries of iiMiittions affecting her actnity
aad the fr.o play of her latelltg. ace. She
ies:ited them as something outside of her
u'lf, whuli levrel only contempt and
clnistising. Her soul, she thought, could lift
itself aboe them was above them.
Throughout her bufferings, she kept her
MHininrcs cf spirit, her serenity unci elas
ticity . And she continued to w ork. This, 1 1
deed, was an integral pait of her creed. To
idlers sad dilettanti she had always tinned a
cold shoulder; they had no pl.i"o in her
scheme of tiling. If her antipathy assumed
nt tia.es a humorous form, it wis none tho
lev, ical and deep seated. It would have
ratified tin most ngid economist to hao
Ik.trd her vt lorth tliis thesis of lite as a
period of ai-tie produ.tion. JShi rejoiced to
call herself, and bo called, a working woman;
there u.v no better title under hen en to her
sense, and her life was a long enforcement of
the belief, a iraitful illustration ot how it
cou'd be praclun-l with dignity and success.
