THE HEIRESS OF CAIEDOX HEIGHTS.
AN AUTTOBIOGR.APH -
BY FLORENCE E. DIAMOND.
Mrs. Clayton turned to a servant who was
-in the room, and said quietly: "You may
take this child to the school-room for to
day, Ann. Tell Miss Dallas she will at
tend to her as to others.
I obediently followed the girl to the school
room, which was a handsomely-furnished
apartment on the second floor.
The servant opened the door and gave me
a shove inside. "'Mistress said she was to
study here to-day," she cried, and shut the
door, leaving me standingin the middle of the
floor. I raised my head and loolced around.
At a desk in one end of the room, a grave,
plain-faced girl of perhaps two-and-twenty
was sitting listening to a recitation from
one of the three children under her charge.
When she saw me she bado me be seated,
but she' neither smiled nor gave me any
word of welcome. Ier thoughts seemed far
away, I thought, for her voice. though even
and well-modulated, never raised or fil be
low the same quiet monotone. When she
had finished the lesson upon which she was
engaged when I entered, she came forward
and questioned me somewhat in regard to
my studies. This done, she gave ue a book
and requested me to read a certain passage.
"YOU UNDEnSTAND EX. N
I did so. When I had finished she made no
comment, but bade us now give our atten
&tion to mathematics. We did so. She was
odparently a good teacher, for she took
much pains to explain the problems and the
rules that governed them; but her voice
never lost its automatical ring. It w.as as
though a wooden image were uttering those
mhiggs, and consequently tge structions
she gave were dry and uninteresting, and I
d nopwonder that the children gave a sigh
of relief when the lessen was over. But
they had evidenty been taught implicit ob
dience to-their teachers rules, for they were
silent and respectful, paying strict atten
ion to their books after their first stare
of welcome to mhe when I was broufght in.
She now gave us intermission, during which
sheleft us alone together. The children at
onceethrew off all restraint and approached
mo with loud questions.
"What's your name?" asked the oldest
boy, looking into my face with his wicked
Are you going to live here"' he inquired
I did not answer. His ton, was jering
and unkind, and I felt ready to cry.
"Why don't you answer me? he asked,
boughly. "Do you suppose," he continued,

longer to control my feelings, I gave way to
my grief and sobbed wildly.

blue eyes and dark enrlingt hair. "Don't
cry," he said, coming cl1ose to me and laying
his little dimpled hand on my shoulder.
"It'11make your head ache; it does mine,"
he continued, wisely.
-I felt comforted somewhat by his gentle,
n~idly words, and I sat up and wiped my

me. "And did my mamma bring you, and
wha made your mama let you come?"
"Ihave no mamma," I replied; and then
- iexplained to him how we lived at the
home and the circumstances of his mother's
adopting me, though why she had done so,
when she had three children of her own, I
couild not imagine.
"Now tell me about yourself," I said,
when I had finished. "Are those your

gravely; "only my half brother and sister.

followed him out into the garden, and we
spent a pleasant hour together. When the
bell rang for lessons I ran in feeling much
more cheerful and content than before.
Our lessons for the remainder of the fore
noon were very short. Attwelve we dressed
with the governess; but, with the exception
of Bertie, who chattered to me in his artless
way, no ono spoke to me or recognized my
presence in the least.

The Love and Respect of' Children.
If mothers could only realize what a
critical period their children are passing
through from the third to the sixth
year, they would exercise more than
orinary care during that time. Not
only physically but mentally and mor
ally are they undergoing a change; a
change for better or worse, according
to the care and attention they receive
from their mothers and fathers. A
father is no more exempt from certain
duties towards his offspring than the
mother. He should always bear in
mind that his assistance in the control
of the children is of more value to his
tired wife than the presentation to her
of a costly gift. It is at this time that
children begin to notice papa's and
mr.mma's bearing towards one another;
let this always be one of perfect court
esy and respect. Nothing so quickly.
destroys respect for parents as constant
bickering in the presence of their chil
dren. The first thing a child should be
taught is respect for his parents and
elders; affection comes naturally with
most children and is the most valuable
aid in gaining control of their actions;
next to that is respect, without it very
little can be accomplished for the child's
welfare. Parents should bear this in
mind that children lose respect very
soon upon hearing them disagree; using
bitter, cutting words to each other. This
is inflictinig the first actual pain these
baby hearts have been called upon to
bear. In the presence of this the child
experiences conflicting emotions, which
ends in pity for one parent and con
tempt for the other. 0 parent, pause,
consider before you lose this hold on
the little being who has heretofore con
sidered you perfect. Let there be
unanimity of purpose in act, word and~
deed before these little creatures, who
are so susceptible to every new imnpres
sion, if you would preserve their love
and respet.-Mrs. Ellis L. Mumma, in
