A "synonymous" entertainment Is
one of the best means ever tried for
setting one's guests acquainted and
for removing nil stiffness and formal
ity. Before the arrival of her guests
the hostess must make out a complete
list of their names and then must set
her wits to work to devise a synonym
for each. Xo attempt is made at se
lecting literal synonyms for the wcrd
or its parts as spelled.

souvenir bearing his or her name is
pinned below the left shoulder. These
souvenirs may bo as plain or as elab

well as a hand-painted or a silver
At any time the hostess chooses slips
of paper, each of which contains the
synonym of a name, are passed to the
guests. They are told to try to find
the names which they represent.
Another plan is to have a complete
list of the synonyms made out for
each guest, and then each one must
keep his own counsel and fill in as
many of the names as possible.
There are various ways in which the

In Modern Politics
By Col. Curtis Guild, Jr.
HE "spellbinder" made his appearance coincidenlly with the
"dude," in the early eighties. At least the names arose at
about that time. The two types of men have existed since the
first spellbinder persuaded his brother troglodytes to form the
first tribal government and the first dude distinguished himself
from his fellows by scraping the sea-mud from his hairy limbs
before gulping down the mollusks whose high-heaped shells
were to be the kitchen middens of the archaeologist.
The young Republicans who went forth converted, to
Democracy in the Blaine campaign, and with the zeal of new converts held
their audiences "spellbound" as they wove ehaplets of rhetorical flowers about
the head of the Democratic candidate, were the first spellbinders, I think, to
wear the title. It was swiftly adopted, however, indiscriminately for all
The spellbinders of 1S04, rightly or wrongly, at least left their par!y for
conscience's sake and gave their services to their cause. Even to-day a majority
of political speakers are absolutely unpaid. Of course, one hears stories of
fees of $10,0H) paid to a noted Democrat for campaign services against Mr.
Bryan in 1S00, and of fees of J?n00 a night paid to a noted Independent who op
posed Mr. Harrison. In addition, however, to Congressmen and Senators, and
State and local otKce-holders who give their services, there are hundreds of
speakers of various political faiths; who neither hold nor expect to hold public
office, who would regard the offer of payment for a political speech as an in
sult. Nevertheless, the spellbinder must get wiiat cpmfort he can from the
friumph of his cause, for the world will not credit him with disinterestedness,
and his best friends (out of politics) think him hired.
The orator of an earlier generation has had his day. The modern spell
binder, like the man of business, the soldier, the Salvation Army evangelist,
concerns himself more with results than conventional methods, with matte:
rather than form, Seribncr's.

If a mother has wisdom enough, patience enough, and love
enough she can perforin miracles.
She can keep down in her child tendencies that have the
strength of lions and encourage germs of virtue almost too

the faults of their children and too little upon their virtues.

If there is any rise in trying to be good, then soon returns to utter indifference.
He might as well have a good time in his own wa0 since he is considered
thoughtless and selfish, anyhow.
On the other hand, let a mother try to remember the good things he has
done or said during the day, even though it may be only one, and when he
comes to her at night for a little talk or his prayers, tell him how pleased you
were to notice them, how happy they have made you, and you can feel sure that
he will always remember to go on doing what Is right, first because it is right

It stands to reason that if you dwell upon the faults of children you will
only impress them all the deeper upon their consciousness, making it harder for
them to conquer them.
A fault can be put out of the mind easier and more successfully not by
dwelling upon it, but by attempting to put it out. Indirectly by filling the mind
with encouraging thought.
Children need encouragement as far as reforming goes. Look only for the
good, and when you find it emphasize it so that they may have an incentive
for trying all the harder. X child is easily wounded with a sense of its fail
ures, and mothers should make the effort to inspire and cheer them.
Always send your children to bed in a happy frame of mind. Even in their
sleep that impression is retained, and they awake in the morning ready and
eager to do their best. '

The thought was this: Singing, which is one of the most beneficial and
exhilarating pastimes for children, is not sufficiently indulged in.
It is singularly difficult to induce children iu Sunday-school to sing out
freely, and when there are strangers present the littls ones are almost sure to
be seized with a shyness that makes them dumb.
Much of this shyness would be overcome if in the family there was a prac
tice of singing together in the evening.
