REAL VALUE OF PLAY.
Brief Period Snatched From the
Regular Routine Aids Health.
Self Improvement societies that have
tried to find the best way to live have
never discovered anything more valu
able than play, says Collier's Weekly.
A man may shake up a continent by
his energy or build kingdoms by his
brains, but so far ns bis personal life
Is concerned be has been a failure if
he has not learned to play.
Play, of course. Is not confined to
games. It may be a walk In the woods,
a row upon the river, a sail upon the
lake. To some making a garden is play,
as to others is chopping wood. To play
Is to follow the irresponsible Inclina
tion which gives the most pleasure
with the least mental strain and bodily
Ideal play Is a brief period of care
free living snatched from the regular
routine. It la enjoying the pleasure of
being alive; It Is absorbing from the
earth and air and sun without con
scious effort. More and more we are
trying to teach the children how to
piny, but we do not know how our
selves. ' Before us always is the bogy
of wasting time, and the devil of die
ease, old age. misery and failure never
Invented a falser bogy. We send our
children to the public playground and
go on ourselves getting soggy and
heavy and gloomy and nervous.
DISRAELI AS A SON. Tl
Hia Generosity In Becoming Recon
ciled to His Father.
Lord Dufferin used to tell the follow
ing story about his mother aud Dis
raeli: My mother was among the first of
Disraeli's acquaintances to recognize
his great ability, and she saw a great
deal of him when at Mrs. Norton's,
when he was a young man about town.
She did not see very nuch of him after
he had once entered upon bis political
career. Here, however, is a little anec
dote which Is very characteristic and
amusing. My mother had a great ad
miration for the "Curiosities of Litera
ture" and was anxious to make the ac
quaintance of Disraeli's father, but
there was a difficulty about this, as at
the moment be was not on good terms
with his father.
However, he appeared one day witb
his father in tow. As soon as they
were both seated Disraeli turned around
nrl Irwtlrfnv ot bfo father Aa If ha vara

my mother: "Madam, I have brought
yon my father. I have become recon

The first was that he should come to
see you and the second that he should
pay my debts."
Why Elizabeth Ordered Fish.
The connection between fish eating
during Lent and a 6trong navy may
appear remote, but to Elizabethan
statesmen It seemed very real and vi
ral. So much so that every one should
l eat fish 'on every day of Lent, as well
as on certain appointed days through
oat the year, under penalty of a heavy
fine. And the reasons set forth for this

Plenty of hot water at any time, day or night, is what dis
tinguishes a real bathroom from a make-believe.
IN THE KITCHEN.
Hot water is absolutely indispensible. Can you think of any
one thing that so lightens kitchen labor as to have plenty of
steaming hot water always ready?
Wash day demands an unlimited supply of hot water,
such a time a coil gas water heater is most appreciated.

The Peevish Chi lid
Needs a Laxative
Tt Is natural for a child to lauch and
play and when it sulks drowsily or
cries you may depend on It something
physical is the matter. If you see no
evidences of a serious ailment you will
not be wrong If you quietly give it a
dose of mild laxative that evening on
putting it to bed.
The remedy most generally recom
mended for this purpose in Dr. Cald
well's Syrup Pepsin, which mothers
throughout the country have been giving
their children for a quarter of a cen
tury. Today thousands of families are
using It where hundreds used it then,
and there must be good reason for this
word of mouth recommendation.
It Is admittedly the perfect laxative
for children, women, old people and all
others who need a gentle bowel stimu
lant and not a violent salt, cathartic
pill or doctored water. Dr. Caldwell's
Syrup Pepein will act gently, and when
taken before retiring will bring com
