Kit the Children Ciood Night.
St Paul Pioneer Press.
Send the little ones to bed in a happy frame
of mind. It requires some discipline and
self-denial on the part ot a weary parent to
answer all the foolish questions and attend
to the many wants that multiply so fast as
the hour of bed time draws near, hut it is a
labor of love thawill bring a large recom
pense. Children never forget. They will
carry with them through life's long and
weary pilgrimage the raraeinlirance of the
face that bent over them at night, and that
was associated in their Immature minds with
heaven and God. And the little tiresome
last questions mean so much to them. What
if we should not answer them and they never
awakened here) U;nnisworwd questions and
unanswered problems ii.tve followed men
and women through life with harrowing per
sistence. And never give a thoughtless answer to a
child's question. Never tell the little ones
that the thunder is the voice of God! Think
what an idea they mast torn of such a God.
Do not taU them petty vaxcuestoriae Usat will
mislead them into tangled paths. Hood says
pathetically of bis own childhood:
"I remember, I remember
The fir trees dark and high.
I used to think their slender totis
Were close against the sky,
"It was a childish ignorance,
But now 'n little joy
To know I'm further off from heaven
Than when I was a boy."
No one ciRi so gently and kindly prepare
the little ones for the perplexities and disap
pointments ot life, which are inevitable, as
the fathers and mothers to whom their edu
cation should be a first consideration. Tha
moral lessons taught at the mother's knee or
by the bedside can never be forgotten, nor
can the father shirk all responsibility iu the
matter of home tutelage. That is a child to
be pitied who is afraid to ask its father any
question which arises in its young mind who
dare not climb to the parental knee and
challenge the world to dislodge it. Dr. Hol
land, in his fine poem of Daniel Grey, which,
is said to tjrpify his own father, says:
"He had some notions that did not improve
He never kissed his children, so they sny."
We feel sorry for the children of a father
so austere, but we can afford to pity one who
lost so much beauty and value out of his own
life. Then kiss the children good night and
good morning and answer all their questions,
and you will find that in such work two are
blesid one in giving, the other in receiving.

There is very likely no conservatism more
difficult to deal with than that displayed by
the young boy in regard to any change in his
apparel. "If I must wear these cuffs," said
an 8-year-old boy, on Sunday morning, "I
am not going to church." The cuffs in ques
tion were entirely unobjectionable iu the eye
of man or woman. They were probably un
noticeable, also; but the boy discovered a
morbid dread of appearing in them, as they
were not a usual addition to his toilet He
confessed, in confidence to his mother, as
they walked along, that he dreaded the re
marks his Sunday sohool class would nittko
upon them. How little consideration is shown
for the feelings of children.
How few parents realize that the child's
world, only, as John Brown, of Edinbiirg,
says, "about three feet high," has its trage
dies and comedies, its fear of blighting, ad
verse criticism. So many times, when gar
ments are chosen, when the question is not
of expenditure, but of taste, the children
themselves might be allowed to choose, within
certain limits, what they will have.
Who has not seen this sight; when all
the happy boys in the neighborhood are
wearing knee-ants, one small and weary
soul appearing in pantaloons the exact coun
terpart of his father's and reaching to the
heels ot bis shoes! This life is made a burden
to him, and then and there is begotten an un
easy consciousness of self that will require
years of thought and experience and of reso
lute care to overcome.
The consciousness of being well and suita
bly dressed, so dear to the heart of woman
and so conducive to her ease, Is just as con
soling to a child, and is no more likely to lead
to a morbid fondness for dress than is the
discomfort occasioned by the consciousness
that there is something wrong about his

tors that women not only rob themselves but
their children of the best part of their hair,
simply because they dou't know how to use a
comb or brush. When the hair is loose and
smooth use thefine end of the comb and let
each application touch the scalp. Comb the
hair in every direction right, left, up, back,
down, from the poU and ears forward, part
ing it at a dozen different lines from ear to
ear. The brush may be of metal or bristle
so long as it is in intelligent hands. Have a
towel at hand and wipe off the brush after
every few applications. Brush little tresses
at a time, if you would keep less hair in the
brush than on the head. While short it is
better to let the hair hang loosely. When
started tor the Tinal growth braid it in one or
two strands, but not tightly. Always fasten
the euds with combings, as a string.
cord or elastio will certainly cut the
hair. Don't try to crimp your lit
tle daughter's hair. To be sure it
has the apiwrauce of just doubling the
thickness and tickling the vanity of the little
girl, as well as warming the pride of her
mother, but at the same time it breaks off the
individual hairs and keeps them of an uneven
length for years.
The heavy heads of hair that many little
girls are made to carry, just because it is the
fashion, or because some proud mother "hntie
to cut it of," is not frequently the cause of
nervous diseases and general ill health. Eight
or ten inches of hair is too hot in summer, too
great a strain ou the nerve in the winter,
and in nineteen oases out of twenty so Impov
erishes the hair cells that the product is ever
afterward very frugal. Medical works on
the subject are full ot instances in which
twitching of the facial muscles, Saint Vitas'
dance, we&kaiHH of the nerves of the eyes,
and various uerwus troubles can be traced
to a heavy mane which, some little one has
been burdened with through the weakness ot
her father and the vanity of her mother.

fore a large mim, clad for the bedchamber
ceiia in "CTmbelme." Over her shapely
form fell ; robe of white cashmere, over1

were In sandals and she had just drawn over
outline of her toes to produce the impression
that they were bare. Before and around hor
were scattered all the implements, evidences
and intricacies of ber art Oreat trunks
stood with mouths wide open revealing rich
and curious costumes, and the dressing-maid
flitted here and there, folding or arrauging
them in most convenient places for the ar
tist's use. It was a curious sight to a novice,
this display of the powder, tinsel, rudeness
and richness whh dazzle and shine from
behind the footlights for those in front, as
though they were all real.
The stage manager at the Chestnut street
opera house had, by the first words quoted,
admonished Modjeska that the scene would
soon be on where Iachimo roust find her
fallen asleep in her bed with the book she bad
been reading fallen by her side, and the loaf
turned downiwhere she had finished
"Welcome to my business olHce," said she
laughingly, as I entered with her husband.
"You see me here at work, and here are all
my tools. May be I will not be as entertain
ing, as. well dressed, or as interesting as I
would have been in my boudoir after tho
cares and frolics ot the play are over. Our
profession Is exacting. People will not toler
ate a wait or a hitch, and our success depends
as much upon the spirit, fire and ability put
into it But I must go now, this scene is a
short one; sit until I return," the gifted wo
man said, as she hurried away.
I soon followed to the wings to witness the
by-play. It took but a halt minute for the
actresB to scramble into the improvised bed,
the maid to cover her with a lamb's wool
robe, when the curtain rolled up, and Mod
jeska, to the audience, was asleep. Iachimo
(Frank Clements) emerges from the trunk
and begins bis treacherous invocation; while
Barrymore, In the room just away, is dress
ing for the part to follow. I watched the
play quite listlessly, for what a different im
pression it all makes when seen from the
rough surroundings behind, instead of from
the comfortable seats and fanciful decora
tions In front of the curtain. I was just
thinking how much show bud to do with
everything in life, how pose and appearance
aided and stimulated every effort of man or
women, whan I was bvesurbt tack to my duty
by a quick touch upon the shcmlder. -
"Come, I have a long wait now; we will
resume the chat"
Turning, titers stood Modjeska dressed for
a new part She had passed into her room
from the back part of the stage during this
reverie. Her white and orange robe had dis
appeared, and upon her tall and graceful
figure was a new dress of rich texture and
dark blue color. Around hor waist and
over her shoulders in careful folds rested
drapery of a lighter shade. She looked every
Inch a queen. Her face was 1 learning with
the excitement of the evening's success, and
her dark, speaking eyes lit up u countenance
as fair in mould as it was intelligent in ex
pression. No affectation in word, look or
action, simply a bright able woman that
has forced her way in life against great odds,
by the power ot her gouius and her greater
She led the way to her room, away from
the bustle of those who were pushing on and
off the stage as the parts requii-wl them.
Here was ber son Ralph, to whom she intro
duced me, a manly looking boy, some SO
years of age, who has been educated with
care for his chosen profession of a civil engi

came to America, and it is for him that she
will ever hereafter make it her home. She
spoke to him tenderly in her native tongue,
and the boy markedly showed bis affection

"You see thin Is not all play. There is con

new things to learn every minute. It is

are to overcome, Let me see," she said, half
soliloquizing, as if to recall the early life that
doubtless seems more like a dream than
reality; "I began when quite young and have
teen so much hard work that the exactions of
the stage are almost second nature to me."
"How did you begin,"
"Going on in small parts. My first hus
band had a theatre in Warsaw, and I began
there. I worked hard for several years be
fore I got a position. The way to it was
full of obstacles, and it was not until 1808
that I made a bit I bad traveled, played
and studied, when an accident gave me a
chance and I went on in Warsaw and made
a success in Adrienne Lacouvreur.. Icoultl
not tell you how happy it matte me, after
years of struggle and many trials, to make
my success in my own home. From that
time the world grew brighter and the way
easier. Everything I played after this was
well received. In 187tt I determined to rest
and travel through Europe. But this boy ot
mine said, 'Mother, if you are going on a
Journey let us go to America and see the Cen

ailed for this country. We. came to Phila

presented themselves to interest and amuse
us. We met a number ot friends and had a
splendid time. After our visit east wcwent
