A VANITY BOOK.
Personal Record Keeping Whose Interest
Esenses Its Vanity.
Id the beginning one's parents must
be tbo authors, or if the parents will
not then some devoted aunt may win
for herself the warmest thanks in years
to come. Wben Heart's Delight came
to earth some 15 years ago, a substan
tial volume was bought to be ber book.
Into tbis went first the genealogy of the
family on father's and mother's sides as
far as there was knowledge of it Pho
tographs of great-great-grandparents,
grandparents and parents were inserted.
The wedding dress of the paternal
grandmother was shown by a small
piece, and the maternal side was rich
with bits of the wedding dresses of
mother, grandmother and great -grandmother.
Photographs of father and
mother at the time of their marriage
and when Heart's Delight was born
were also added. To these were added
one of the bouse and the room which
the little maid made blessed by her
coming. The announcement card went
in and letters written for her welcome.
Mamma wrote a description of the won
der, and papa took ber photograph.
All this was for the beginning, but
as months went on there was more to
chronicle. Baby's ways, the coming of
her first tooth, her first word and when
it was spoken, when she began to creep
and then to walk all these were re
corded. Ino the book went, too, such
treasures as the fimt sock, the first lit
tle shoe, a piece of ber first colored
dress. Everything of whatever kind
that marked a beginning found a per
manent place in the Vanity Book, and
the Etory of the child's life may be read
An the child developed the character
of the items naturally changed. When
she went to school, ber early efforts sup
plied more material, sometimes in the
hapo of school work and sometimes as
stories of childish temptations or griefs
and joys. Heart's Delight's first letter
is entered in tbo book.
There are so many tokens bore that
are treasures, more valuable as they
grow older. The first invitation to a
party, the first theater programme, and
with this are other programmes of
those things which have impressed the
child. Her first party dress, ot course,
was shown in the book. Throughout the
book are photogiaphs of Heart's De
light herself as she grew toward girl
hood and of. tbo girls and boys who
were her friends. " " "
Long ago the bookmaking fell into
the bands of the girl herself, and she
adds to it all that points to the story
she is making. Everything of pleasure,
of special benefit in ber life, is to be re
called from tbis book, and even now
she prizes it above all her possessions.
What will it be to ber wben she is 60?
What will it be worth to ber son or
daughter wben some one writes "Finis"
to it for ber? What would yon not give
for such a book left yon by your mother
or father? It would be worth more than
There is a great deal of pleasure to be
found in making such a book for oneself,
though if one begins it after childhood
bo loses much that went into the little
one's book. It will become filled, bow
ever, with the important things of life,
each making these for himself. A vani
ty book is one of the best things in the
world to show bowoue's ideas of values
change and how life's horizon expands.
It records a life with some of those
which preceded it and gave it its bent
and those which accompanied and de
veloped it. Though it may be vanity,
it is yet a vanity with a lesson. Mew
