Thus you rarely see a husband and
wife who uae the slightest policy In
dealing With each other's littlo pecul
iarities. They never put on their kid
gloves when they come to handle a
delicate domestic situation. Rather
they get out th-ii hia.-s knuckles, and
go for each other's weak spots with
the sure knowledge that experience
has given as to where the other is
most vulnerable, and where a blow,
will hurt most.
As fcr children perish the thought'
that parents should condescend to use
any tact in coping with them, or take
tho trouble of getting around the
anglea of little Johnny and Mary's dis-,
position instead of bumping Into
them, with results that are unpleas
ant to all concerned.
Somebody has said that there is a I
delicate way around every difficulty.
Certainly it Is the circuitous routo that:
leads most surely lo a child's con-1
sciousness. and one "do" la worth I

There is no better way lo empha-j
size a child's faults than b foreover
rretttng at them. Tell John a hun
dred times a day that you don't know
what will become of him because he
is so careless, and ho will begin to
take a pride in scattering things

terrible temper and Jane will become
convinced she ha some sort of divine
commission to be temperamental and
indulge in rages.
On the other ha. id, you can d'plo
maUcally represent to Joh-i that as

There are many parents who ac

Tommy looked thoughtful. Well,
I declare," he said finully. ' I believe
1 shall do it There's another reason,
also, why I should like to try. You
see. I'm a cobbler by trade, but my
own shoes wear out so fast I never

else but myself. I believe I should I
make my fortune If I were to leave
off wearing any. Not only make it.
