Comes not too late.
With outstretched hands the Father
To greet his erring son;
At last the soul with joy expauds
My God and I are one!

One Way of Economizing
To the overage hard worked
mother the prcblem of household
economy is ever present. In addi
tion to the daily work, the worry
making five dollars do where six
are needed is the usual accompani
ment. To be able to so plan that
the children may be as well dress
ed as their neighbors, and may
have the advantages they need, is
not easy, and the woman who is
accomphishing this is doing a great
deal. Yet there is an economy
that exceeds even this. Many
women are so intent upon doing
their best with their time and
means (as they believe) that they
in a measure, neglect to come in
touch, in the truest sense, with their

ers make, atid a f ill, especially, of
ten feels herself one too many when
a constant stream of fault finding
goes on in her presence. Better let
her lack some dainty article of
clothing than lack the generous ex
pression of mother love to which
she has a right.
Mothers should take the time
each day to read or tell a story to
their children, and take the time
each day to say "I love," and let
their conduct bear out their words.
The added love and growing confi
dence of the children will repay the
parents for the time spent in this
way. Remember that we owe to
our children a childhood.. We de
fraud them of it when we say by
our actions "You are here and I
must do the proper thing by you, so
you may be commented upon but
am so tired." They iknow too
well that we are tired, and they al
so know that they did not come
into the world of their own free
will. Their sense of justice is out
raged by our apparent attitude
toward them. If we keep near to
them in heart we cannot but be re
warded by their love as they reach
man and womanhood. We shall
have given them the right weapons
for fighting life's battle. This is
not easy, but some have done it
and all can do it if they sincerely
try. If our chitdren are taken from
us before reaching maturity we
shall not be obliged to feel that,
could we have one more chance,
we would try to make amends for
wasting the years which ought to
have been spent in laying up a
store of love of which death could
never rob us. Margaret Merrill.

That Disgusting Chicago Affair.
Perhaps the disgusting 'affair in
Chicago, by which a depraved white
girl married a negro prizefighter
may result in the passage of a law
by Illinois and other states prohib

the races. The indignation over
the marriage seems almost as keen
in that region as in the South.
