Ills sports form one kind of exer

turns Into snorts, some of the

ing fit work.
' The-re are throe reasons why be

ithose are the very qualities he must

petting them, by menm of his work.
The third renson Is that his services
lire Indispensable in the home, even
though his parents are rich enough to
Ihlro everything they want done. A
iBervant cannot put the spirit of n son
into his work and a child can bu
a partner. Yet his work Is more 1 m
Iortnnt to him than to the rest of the
Hardships and obstacles are a dis
tinct advantage to him. Two mistakes
nre often made. On the one. hand, so
much may be done for him and so llt
le through him and in partnership
with him, that he will grow up with
out any sense of responsibility to any
tody for anything; on the other hand
bo little Interest may be taken In
what he Is compelled to do that his
"work will seem entirely unrelated to
Jils own interests.
Three characteristics of his work
are essential. It must be regular and
definite. Even If it Is a medley of
disconnected chores, each must have
Its own place In the day'B schedule
nnd he will be growing in the virtue
of system and order, auyhotv.
Ills work also must be congenial, as
far as possible. Mis aptitudes are to
be studied nnd considered. We know
liow much that means. Handel's father J boy8 nts of rieasure and profit.

not an angel.
His work must be In some decree

demand work, but ho is at cross pur
poses with duty. Comparative part
nership Is most congenial to him.
That appeals to his self respect, en
lightens hlio about family lnteresU
and needs, and It gives him. an un
selfish interest in others besides him
self. Hut it la of the highest Importance
that he receive some of the rewards
in order to gratify his sense of own

secure the uncoerced action of his
will. The sharing may be In Indirect

and economy may be taught both fn

of his possessions.
Even employment with hobbles Is
of benefit, as it develops special tastes
and sometimes fits him for special
work in the future. In future years
he is apt to find in the memory of
those hobbies a source of recreative
amusements. One boy of my ac

Good Wife's Punishment, Intended for
Hutbf.nd, Poor Compensation
A popular revivalist h?.d been hold
ing services at a town In Mississippi
when a heavy rain came on, and he
accepted an Invitation to pass the
night at the house of one of the
townsmen. Observing the preacher's
drenched clothlnft, the host brought
out a suit cf his own and sent his
guest upstairs to dun It.
Tho good man had mad the change
and tag on his way bnc?c to the sit
ting room, when the woman of the
house came out of another room, hold
ing In her hands the fclg family Tilde,
out of which the minister was to be
Invited to read a chapter before the
family went to bed.
She was rot, however. In a very
amiable frame of mirfd, for careful
housewives are likely to be put out of
sorts by the advent of unexpected
company. Seeing the revivalist in his
borrowed garments, she mistook him
for her hunband, and as he passed In
front of her she lifted the book and
brought it down sharply on his head.
"There!" she exclaimed. "Take
that for asking him to stayall night!"

wanted to make a lawyer of him ami
would not let him do some things
which his talents demanded that ho
fiinuld do. .Michael Angtio's faiher
tried to. put him Into a govermuent
position. They wanted Watt to stop
watching the tea kettb? altogether
pnd do more practical things; and he
vas willing to help around the house,
if they would only lot h!m study the
tea kettle some.
While the ideal of nil work is that
H shall be so congenial that he will
always delight In it, sometimes it Is
sure to be irksome. Those for whom
he works or the aims he has in work
ing muBt so excite hl3 Interest that
he will be glad to do even disagree-
He must be guarded against some
very definite perils. He is In danger
of capitalizing his valuo to the family
nnd thereby growing hard and selfish.
Vanity and self-importance will kill
kindness and prevent the fullest en
joyment of his rewards. He must, be
given an opportunity for the exercise
of his power of initiative and fore
thought. He-must be invited into the
council chamber and be given a hear
ing, as a Junior. In the enterprises in
which he is to be a participant. Per
haps he can be easily taught that he
is to put forth those powers which he
will need In his future work. Thus
he will be growing In the virtues of
self-knowledge and self direction.
The Boy's Beauty
As a rule, be Is not a thing of beau
ty, nor a Joy forever not yet. The
"irrepressible conflict," of which we
have read and said so much, is the
conflict between his desire to look well
and his disinclination to use the meas
ures that w ill Insure good looks, if any
thing will. A presentable appearance
la Impossible without cleanliness, and.
from that standpoint, boys'drop into
three clauses. First arc the few, the
precious few, who like to use eoap and
water and scrubbing implements, on
ordinary as well ns on state occasions,
and the latter means Saturday nights;
but it must be conceded that this is an
almost invisible, rather than invincible
company of "Knights of the Uath." The
second group stands out in contrast
with a certain group of Illinois states
men, In that they must have high pres
sure inducements to avail themselves
of special bath room facilities. The
third is the grent middle class of boys
w ho, with more or less reluctance, will
co-operate in the care of their persons.
It will be different later on. but they
will no longer be boys. Meantime, tho
boy's face, hands. Dnger nails, neck
and ears are negligible quantities, aa
in the case of the boy who was sent
away from the table to clean up and
came back with very littlo improve
ment, but vindicated himself with the
claim that he had washed all right, but
did not think It necessary to go into de
tails. There is a time when almost any
littlo boy is pretty, when cleaned up
and dressed tastefully. He enjoys be
ing told ho is pretty, but has no more
respect for his looks than to wallow in
a mud puddle, If he Is not watched.
"Wash and play" no. not exactly.
Then there copies a time when, even
with the best of clothes, it is hard to
secure the co-cperatlon of his looks In
tnaklnc a desirable impression. Ho
would like to bo graceful, but is loose
Jointed, like a mule. When he starU
for a point he Is likely to Bwing around
and knock down a lamp, a vase and
valuable bric-a-brac before he reaches
destination. His hair won't stay
combed, not even parted. He wears
out his pants Just where you don't want
hlnl to wear them out. When he smiles.
It Is not Just like Gladstone's smile.

Rrnlle and makes a permanent Impres

In the night singing, "His bright smile
haunts mo still." His hands kDow no
repose. His voice Is liable any minute
to go clean out of sight, as a tenor, and
the next minute to go rumbling down
in the bowels of the earth as a bass.
Ho can croak like a frog, chirp like a
cricket and sing like an angel, all In
the same breath. It Is the awkward
age nnd 13 incurable until he Ceases
to be a boy. His framewc.'k U thrown
up like a modern skyscraper, and he
creeps up on it and takes possession
of one story at a time, getting ac
quainted with that part of himself,
gradually and suspiciously.
It Is a paradox, but still true, that
he Is at his most fascinating and for
bidding period at one and the same
time, and his looks betray him, In
both respects. Conceit and humilia
tion, love and dislike are struggling
There is a moral value In his looks,
because they react on his disposition
and tendencies; and they affect his re
lations with people whether that Is de
sirable or not It is at the awkward
age he is apt to become very con
scious of the presence and attractions
of tho opposite sex. Then looks begin
to count. Ablutions become a pleas
ure. He shines the heels of his shoes,
washes every convolution In his ears
and goes behind thorn, and he learns
the decorative value of clothes. His
looks affect his feelings and therefore
his conduct. Any patch on his clothes
in front distresses him and the thought
that there may be one on the other
side of him, which he cannot see,
wbll others can, tortures him. Ills
features must remain as nature made
them, but they may be helped out with
cleanliness and clothes and appropri
ate decorations and the rl&ht kind of
foods and scientific physical culture,
till those same features will reshape
themselves and assume mauly beauty,
especially when there is a noble and
beautiful soul residing In the body
and using it for the highest purpose.
Culture in good looks U one of the
rights of a boy, In order to overcome
present disadvantages and equip blra
with power for future use; and It can
be carried on only with his co-opera
tion. Hut therein lies his peril. His
vanity Is such a curious thing, it may
deceive htm with conceit and torture
him with dissatisfaction. To work
for good looks, as an asset. Is not bad,

PIMPLES COVERED HIS BACK
"My troubles began along In the
summer in the hottest weather and
took the form of small eruptions and
itching and a kind of smarting pain.
It took me mostly all over my back
and kept gvttlcg worse until finally
my back was covered with a mass of
pimples which would burn and Itch at
night to that I could hardly stand It.
This condition kept getting worse and
worse until my back was a solid mos3
of big cres which would break open
and run. My underclothing would be
a clot of blood.
"I tried various remedies and salves
for nearly three years and I was not
getting any benefit. It seemed I was

finally given a set cf the Cutlcura
Remedies and inside of two weeks I
could see and feel a great relief. I
kept on using Cutlcura Soap, Ointment
and also the Resolvent, and in about
three or four months' time my back
was nearly cured and I felt like a new
being. Now I am in good health and
no sign of any skin diseases and I

For such as these the words Epokea
by Adolphus Knopf should be chiseled

still, they should be published In ev
ery public print, viz: "There is no
such thing as hereditary tuberculosis.
The remedy is simple and all should
know it. It is cne of the most easily
curable of all the chronic Infectious
diseases. You can cure consumption
by the unstinted use of God's good
fresh air, twenty-four hours in twer.ty
four, plenty of good food and plcr.ty
of good water, inside and out. You
all know that cleanliness is next to
godliness. Children should get all
the freeh air possible. They should
sleep and play in the open air. They
should attend open-air schools."
