(ottrirr's jf-ome (belt
mere is an oii legend that runs
in this wise i At creation's dawn an
angel came down to earth, and be
fore returning looked about for
something to carry back to heaven
There were three things that attract
ed the attention of the white-winged
messenger a bouquet of ' sweet
flowers that had been gathered from
one of earth's fair und blooming
gardens, the smile of a little baby
that had been playing with a sun
beam, and a mother s love. These
three the angel carried away, but
when it reached the pearly gates of
paradise the flowers had withered
the baby's smile had vanished. Only
the mother's love remained the
same, and being found as pure and
eternal as the waters that flowed by
God's throne, all the angels thai
ranged above exclaimed in unison
"There is nothing on earth pure
enough for heaven but a mother's
love 1" This was a tribute contain
ing a sublime thought. And through
all the ages it has been human exper
ience that the angels referred to in
that legend were not over extrave
gant in the message which they
passed out through the open windows
of the "many mansions" along tne
banks of the "River of Gold."
A young man presented an en
gagement ring to a lovely girl he had
won with the remark, "I am poor,
but you manage as mother does and
we'll get along nicely." The young
lady investigated how "mother
managed." She was wife, a moth
er, a housekeeper, a business mana
ger, a hired girl, a laundress, seams
tress, a mender and patcher, a dairy
maid, a cook, a nurse, a kitchen
gardner, and a general slave for a
family of five. "She works from
five in the morning until ten at night,
and I almost wept when I kissed her
hand it was so hard and wrinkled,
and corded and unkissed. . When I
raw her polishing the stove, carry
ing big buckets of water and great
armfuls of wood, often splitting the
latter, my heart failed me, and
it is needless to say the ring was re
turned." If the wife must drudge
let the husband share it. If she
must cook let him carry the fuel, if
she must scrub let him carry the
water, if she must churn let him
milk the cows. The' girl did what
every girl of sense and wisdom
We always feel complimented
when we are taken to the family sit
ting room instead of the parlor when
we call upon our neighbors, and still
more pleased if we are given the
privilege of going where our hostess
is engaged, if at the time of our call
she happens to be busy. With what
pleasure do we remember the homes
where we are welcomed almost as
members of the family, feeling free
to go to every part of the house.
What a delight it is to visit where
our advent is altogether a source of
pleasure and where we do not feel
that our hostess is anxiously think
ing "What shall we eat and what
shall we drink?"
GOOD AND DAD MOTHERS.
The difference between good and
bad mothers is so vast and so far
reaching that it is so exaggeration
to say that the good mothers of this
generation are building the homes of
the next generation, and the bad
mothers are building the prisons.
i?or out ot lamuies nations are
made ; and if the father be the head
and the hands of a family, the
mother is the heart. No office In the
world is so honorable as hers, no
priesthood so holy, no influence so
sweet and strong and lasting. Un
selfish love is the mother I Cheerful
obedience in the children I In what
ever home these forces are con
stantly operative, that home cannot
be a failure. And mother-love is
not of the right kind, nor of the
highest trend, unless it compelis this
obedience. The assertion that af
fectionate firmness and even whole
some chastisement is unnecessary
with our advanced civilisation. Is a

dren of today have as many rudi
mentary vices as they had in the
days of the patriarchs ; as a general
thing they are self-willed and in
clined to evil from their cradles;
greedy without a blush, and ready
to lie as soon as they discover the
use of language. A good mother
does not shut her eyes to these facts ;
she accepts her child as Imperfect,
and trains it with neverceasing love
and care for its highest dutiel. She
does not call impertinence "smart
ness," nor insubordination "high
spirit," nor selfishness "knowing-
how to take care ot itself," nor ly
ing and dishonesty sharpness.
Let us not wait for chances for
doing good to come to us, but go
out to meet them,. Too many
beautiful opportunities escape us
otherwise. As charity begins at
home, so should love. We don't
care much for either the charity or
love that would leave its nearest to
want for duty or affection, and go
out into the world to work. We
find It a delightful plan to make
each one of our homefolks happy
about some one thing each day of
our life plan little surprises for
their delight, do little deeds for
them, brighten a dull hour, or con
gratulate them upon some achieve
ment on their own.
Of one thing we are certain, we
are too chary of our commendations,
too stingy of our praise, and, alas 1
too lavish of our blame. "Thoughts
are things," and words, if true, are
their manifestations. How often
have we thought favorably of many
things, yet said no word. For all
such sins of omission we must ever
suffer deep regret. How easy it
would have been to have said,
"That is so beautiful I" or "How
well you do I"
We think of things like these when
our opportunities are flown forever;
when the dear head we loved lies
low when the braveliands are still.
If we had only spoken, the way must
have been more bright, the labor
less dull and wearing i
Parents often say, "I live for my
children." They should do more
than that they should live with
their children, letting their boys and
girls feel that their interests are
their parents' interests also. In no
other way can fathers and mothers
keep so firm a hold on the young
lives. Let the children haye their
pleasures. Train them to be obedl
ent, neat, and to some extent order-
y, and then let them have all the
hood and womanhood, even after
they have families of their own, they
will look back to their childhood as
the brightest oasis of their lives.
Mother will be thought cf as the
dearest woman and father as the
