Small-pox may be prevented by
vaccination. One successful vac-;
cination gives a partial protection I
against small-pox. In such a per- j
son the disease is mild-vanoloid. A
second successful vaccination gives
a greater protection, and a third
successful vaccination is absolute
protection against small pox, The
second and third vaccinations are
very mild. The protection given by
vaccination is temporary lasts from
five to seven years. Revaccination
then is necessary if freedom from
small-pox is desired. Rarely is vac
cination severe. The very sore
arms are due to infections from the
6kin. To reduce these secondary
infections, antiseptic precautions
should be used while vaccinating
and the area vaccinated should be
kept clean fikI protected

me wear my sister's cape one win
ter when she couldn't afford to buy
me an overcoat. I'd have worn an
old coat of father's without a word
but she wouldn't hear to it. 'You
wear what I tell you, or stay at
home,' she would say. Then, too
she pinned a pair of home made
ear muffs in ray cap to keep my
ears warm. Many a time when on-
y father and I were in the wagon
'd take off the cape and tuck the
ear muffs inside the cap before we
reached town. I've always loved
my father for understanding and
saying nothing about it.
'Son. I'd like to buy you an
overcoat,' he said once as we went
clattering into town, but though my
teeth were chattering with the
cold I protested that I was 'warm
nough.' and dinn't need an overcoat"
Most of us remember the trivial
incidents rather than the more im
portant ones of our earlier years-
Our most pleasant memories are
apt to be of small pleasures, unex
pected courtesies and attentions; our
most unpleasant ones those of un
necessary humiliations. Two dear
little girls used to pass our house
going to school; time and again I
noticed that their toes lacked an
inch or more of filling the shoes.
"Mother gets our shoes big so they
won't wear out so fast," explained
one of the children. "My but I wish
she wouldn't; I'd be awful careful
of pretty shoes bought to fit me."
You always wear brown or
black ribbons. Don't you like pret
ty ribbons like mine?" a child asked
"Yes. I do: but mamma wants
something that won't show dirt." re
plied the child.

eight years old we were to come to

being told how naughty our school
mate was to ask us) by the child's
This mother lived to see her
daughter a hardened woman of the
world, and to weep bitter tears be
cause the daughter neglected her
when as invalid and impoverished,
but it is the daughter and not the
mother who has had our sympathy.
The child never had the love or
sympathy of the mother, and could
scarcely be blamed for not having
love and sympathy for her. Chil
dren often issue invitations which
would better not be given, but she
is a strange mother who will humil
iate her child before friends by re
fusing to receive guests so invited.
Children should have a right to in
vite their friends to their home, but
they should also be taught to invite
a friend to thoir home is a compli
ment which should only be bestow
ed on those worthy.
Our sense of proportion is so poor
sometimes that we are apt to over
estimate the importance of things
and to under-estimate the import
ance of family ties and " happy
memories. Little injustices of
childhood rankle in old age; happy
memories chee as long as life en
dures, What children wear, how
their confidences are received and
their notions humored will be re
membered when the parents have
passed away. Ex.
