meeting of Inst Monday afternoon, hoM
nt tlic high school building, Mrs. Henry
N. Hss read a paper on "Woman's Obliga
tion lo Husband nnd Children." It
.tV.is full of original anil practical thoughts
ana wm no pet used with prone, ns wen n.a
interest, by the readers of tin home de
partment. The paper not only furnishes
"food for relleetlon," but points the way
to many much needed reforms In the family
circle. Extracts are ns follows:
Our nature demands a home. It Is the
first essential element of our social being.
The strength of Its Influence can only be
estimated by the power of Its Impressions.
It makes the first stamp and sets the first
seal upon the nature of the child. It gives
the first tone to our desires and furnishes
Ingredients that will either sweeten or
embitter the whole of lire.
Men and women who have made our
history whose biographies wo read for In
spiration, owe their characters. In n largo
measure, to the training and management
of i 'others whose ability and love was
groaV 'n proportion as tho home was poor
and v agor. Napoleon understood this
when to said: "What France needs Is
It Is the first aim of every couple who
have crossed tho bridge, over which so
many have walked with Joyful feet, to
provlo.1 for themselves a home. It does
not novel to be a house of ample apart
ments, utit a simple cottage, where Intelli
gence and affection dwell with labor and
poverty, if need be. where the mantle of
char, ly spreads Itself over all the mistakes
of husband and wife.

While the gl-i becomes accomplished In
the decorative art which fits her to appear
well at an evening party, not one simile

that awiu ner as me lummui ui ...iului-i
generation. Is it that this knowledge conies
to her by Intuition? Certainly not. The eon
ceuuence of this lenornnco many times Is
the delicate physical, weak intellectual
and perverse mural constitution of the son

It Is tho duty of earnest thinking moth
ers to be frank and candid with their chil
dren, mpresH them from childhood up
with the dignity, tho power of opportunity
that the position as mothers and fathers
of chlldion offers them. If each stngo In iho

rest upon the principle that every act must
get Its legitimate consequences. Hegln to
instil this principle as soon as they begin
to play, and it tho mother persists in It,
with brow ever serene and demeanor undis
turbed during the years of physical sollci
tude.she will see that cause and orfeet have
become deeply rooted In them: that they
will weigh consequences when moral
questions come later In life.
Never say to a child, "Do as you please."
By so doing you make him a law unto him
self, which is a great menace to the for
mation of character. Liberty to a child
simply means licence to Interfere with
somebody's rights. Keep before your chil
dren the Idea that they can have no llbertj
until they understand thehtown rights, and
- ...n.. n,i,l lipnnv thp rlirhls nf others, lle-
gin early In life to teach. your child sclt-
Domot give your children money to spend
for luxuries. This Is a habit wiucn grows
with the years, and enfeebles the consti
tution and weakens reslstence to tempta
tion. The less children know ot money in
the early stages of their growth, the bet
ter. The riches that develop character arc
tho things we do not desire.
In conclusion Mrs. K. says:
While children are Imperfeot, parent? are
notably so. A great deal of the Ill-temper
and nervousness of children is traceable to
the want to self-control on the part of
parents. Do not expect early letutns In
your children. The development of char
acter Is a matter ot slow growth. The
precocious chllil In morals nnd Intellect Is
frequently the failure 111 youth and man-,
hood. Let mothers strive to know tho
truth, to live in love and peace with hu
manity, and to uphold the Ideal in tho
family, that the good things ot life are
universal, to learn the one important lesson
to renounce and to lovo.
Tho first open meeting of the National
Congress of Jewish Women, held In
