As they drove through shady
woods, fragrant with sassafras and ;
a hundred ether elusive odors, Mrs. i

seat and once more referred to her j

been a mother, but she knew Just
how children should be trained to

"How to hold your child's love" was
to be her subject, and Mrs. Hector
had carefully and consMentlously
studied over the matter of preventing
the country children from fiocking
to the cities, and she was quite ready
' to tell the Mothers' Club of Leaming
ton aM about It.
Suddenly the road emerged from
the wood and dipped down Into a

' a white sandy beach and the bay.
"It's hard to turn around down

From the group of startled women

fered to talk to them there on the
beach after the luncheon was served.
It was an unusual occasion for
Mrs. Hibberd Hector and she grad
ually unbent to meet these simple
hearted well-mannered women on
their own ground. She was persuad
ed to don an extra bathing dress that
had been brought along and she, too
sported in the rising tide and became
Intimately acquainted with more
chidren in an hour than she had
ever done In her life before.
Mrs Hibberd Hector submitted to

Hector played duck-on-a-roct, and
learned to skip flat stone on tht
All this happened after the plcnlfl
meal, where there were clama and
green corn roasted then and there
and all sorts of good things prepared
by these women who knew how to
be mothers In so many different ways
that Mrs. Hibberd Hector' theories
were all knocked askew.
After the meal had been disposed
of and all of them, mothers and chil
dren and honored guest, had disport
ed In the water, they emerged a
dripping company and seated them
selves on the beach.
"Now. Mrs. Hector." said tho
president, with an arm around eacU
of her two children, "If you will par
don the extreme Informality of th-i
meeting, we would be honored to
have you address us."
There was gentle hand clapping
and they all looked at the honore 1
guest, who had quite forgotten to re
move her bathing cap. From under
its rim there peered a small briuv.i
curl, escaped from Its confinement.
Mrs. Hibberd Hector looked
around at the audience assembled to
hear her, at their quiet well-behaved
children, all watching her expectant
ly, gravely, and. suddenly her sub
ject. "How to Hold Your Child's
Love," appeared unavailing before
these women who bad already dis
covered the secret.
All at once a little 2-year-old girl
who had been watching the honored
guest with silent admiration, toddled
over to Mrs. Hertor and bent a round
and rosy face to hers. "I'd like to
kiss dat tunning 'Ittle turl," she an

embrace of Mrs. Hibberd Hector. ,
