WHEN JOHNNY DREAMS
WHO SHOULD BE THE
HEAD OF THE FAMILY
Isn't it a pretty safe bet that
the man or woman who wnsts
time worrying about who is head
of the family is the one least
qualified for the Job?
Take the woman who thinks
her husband Is the same as a
horse and entitled to decent
treatment only in view of the
support rendered.- The more blat
antly she asserts she is "boss"
the more likely she is to pro
claim to the world her "depend
ent condition" in the most humili
ating terms if there are a few dol
lars to be gained. It is the wom
an who neglects her duties to
harp on the so-called "Independ
ence" of mere man that is surest
to be on the job with a lawyer
and alimony suit when the mat
rimonial ship goes on the rocks.
Certainly the man who Is content
to accept woman as his equal and
looks to her tor aid in his efforts
to put marriage on a more equa
ble basis is entitled to expect
more consistency than this.
JUST A MAN.
We haven't much sympathy to
waste on the man who is stickler
for his prerogatives as head of
the family. Still, if he is to be
shorn of this, and woman at the
same time purposes to retain her
lien on him, for which he has no
corresponding ties on her, just
what is his status to be? After
all, men are not drones. They
are doing by far the larger part
of the world's really important
industrial and professional work
and should be accorded some con
sideration in the new scheme of
Of course, I am speaking in
general terms only, for a man is
doing his work in this world, and
doing it well, surely will get what
is coming to him both in his home
and elsewhere, and the same goes
for a woman.
After all, in the home -where
there la mutual confidence, and
a disposition on the part of both
to live within their means and
promote one another's welfare,
do you suppose there is much
worrying done about "who is
In a recent publication I note
with pleasure that the nature side
is open in the "head of the fam
ily" and also someone mentioned
science. How nice!
Did you ever hear an old hunt
er tell why the female la more to
be feared than the male? Then
ask one, and you will find It 1b
not the fight they put up, but the
way they go about it. The fe
male is the most treacherous. She
lays in wait, and does not hunt.
Just one thing more. Some
body has greatly deceived some
of our readers by selling or dis
tributing fairy stories under the
head of science and nature.

Wtl K\ IS IT RIGHT, AND
Dear Miss Grey: If a boy
friend is sk-k in bed, is It
proper for a girl to go to see
him? And how often should
she go? And is it all right
to send him • basket of
frnlt? N. li.
A. —If the boy is a manly one,
and you are both pure-minded,
the fact that he is sick in bed
should not effect either; but even
the great teacher Jesus tells us
to be "as wise as serpents, and as
harmless as doves," so it is often
best to comply in part at least
It Is lovely to visit the sick,
read a chapter or two in a good
book; take a fine bit of verse, or,
as you suggest, a basket of fruit.
Ask his mother if he would like
you to read and ask her to come
to hear the story. If you will do
it in this impersonal way it does
not matter how often you go; but
remember you must keep your
thoughts far above the physical,
and be filled with the desire to
help, not only him, but every suf
fering creature. The least touch
of spooniness will spoil the whole
thing. You see how much de
pends on whether or not you are
sensible, or silly.

MAKE BIRDS PHOTOGRAPH THEMSELVES
Photography lias become so common that now even the birds
of the air are taking pictures of themselves.
Of course the birds do not use the pictures to decorate tneir
nests —but they do all the
work of making the ex
posure, and the man who
owns the camera reaps
the benefit of their labor.
The man is required to
give a little assistance in
the way of placing the
camera and fixing things
so that the bird can put
In the final touch. Any-
Sic can impress the birds
to service for this pur
pose with the aid of a
little electrical device that
is shown in the sketch.
The shutter of the
Era is actuated by a
a which is used to
air into the rubber
qbe attached to the shut
r. The bird alights on
a limb, which causes the
electrical connection through a powerful magnet. This trips a trig
ger which holds the piston in place, the spring doing the rest.
The device is quite simple for any person familiar with such
ordinary electrical work as wiring a bell, and excellent results are
Obtained. Of course the camera is focused accurately on the spot
where the bird alights. Sometimes it is necessary to wait for hours
to set such a picture, and then again a bird will be attracted to the
place almost as soon as the camera is set.
