FLOWERS TELL OWN STORY
Japanese Art Enables One Readily to
Understand the Significance of
1 heir Arrangement.
In the Flowery Kingdom they work
wonders with their flowers. They
zlake calendars of them. They tell
stories with them. They symbolize
aeroplanes, dainty women, and every
thing else by means of floral units,
which we in America would use merely
for a bouquet. The folklore and
mythology of Japan are often vividly
expres:ecl in flower arrangement.
In arranging flowers the Japanese
try to place them in the same posi
tion that they would naturally take.
An American would put a bunch of
cherry blossoms into a vase, upright;
a Japanese would place the branch in
a horizontal position, such as they
occupy in growing.
The Japanese idea of flower ar
rangement is that one perfect indi
vidual flower, together with leaves and
stem, is more beautiful than masses
of them bunched together.
By using special containers and
supports, the Japanese make flowers
last twice as long as we do. In ar
ranging flowers in a receptacle they
trim the leaves from the stalks be
low the water, and for a short dis.
tance above. This gives the flower
the appearance of growing. By tak
ing a piece of bamboo, the Japanese
will conventionally place flowers in
it in such a way as to reproduce a
ship in a calm or in a storm.
The Japanese do not like the rose
and the lily. Flowers that have
thorns are cruel and those whose pet
als drop off symbolize inconstancy.
The cherry, wistaria, magnolia, azalea,
peony, camellia, peach, plum, maple,
pine, chrysanthemum, iris, lotus and
morning glory find more popular favor.
LITTLE THINGS THAT COUNT
Comparatively Trivial Trouble in Phil
adelphia Building Made Structure
Any high-school girl graduate can
write a pretty essay on "The Little
Things That Count."
For example, a cinder in the eye is
more formidable than Mount Shasta,
:1600 miles away. One fly spoils a bar
rol of ointment, and so on indefinitely.
Had the president of the United
States resigned at 11:45 o'clock on a
recent day scores of persons would
have been less affected than they were
when the elevator men in a skyscraper
at lIroad and Chestnut quit work.
We do have a vice president, but we
have no wings to carry us to our eight
eenth floor ollices. Consternation is
a feeble word and far too anemic to
describe the feelings of that throng of
msen and women who swiftly clogged
the corridors of that huge building.
Can you imagine a moro futile thing
than 20 floors of masonry and steel
without an elevator? You never can
imagine how many people shoot up and
down in these iron-grilled cages in ten
minutes, until the (ages cease to fly
like shuttles on a weaver's loom.
Just a few ('lts' worth of human en
ergy in the arm of a man, or rather
the lack of it, puts $.000,000 worth of
building on the scrap heap!-I'hila
delphia Public Ledger.
"Ye" is Pronounced "Thuh."
Tho "y'" in 'ye' is simply a substi
tote for (ho Anglo-Saxon 'thorn let
ter," so called, which we have no way
of getting into this colimn. Tihat
Anglo-Saxont letteir, liko the cor-re
sponding Icelandic char-acter, stood1
for "thi." The Encyclopedia liritan.
"The 10nglishl letter 'thorn' sur
vived and continued in uso dlown to
the fifteenth century, when it. was
transfoirmed to y."
As for the priontlliation of ''ye,'
meaning 'the,'' it. is, of course (as near'
as we can put it into -printer's in1k)
"thuh'' today, as was In ('haucer's
timo andl log before. Nobody who
sp~eaks 10nglish ever pronounces "tihe"
as if it speiled "thee," but gives it
the same soundh as tihe "e" has in the
cor'resp~onding F~rentch word. Just as
the French pronounce '"be jour"' "iuh
zhour,'' so is 'the dlay' ptronounlcedl
"thuh day." . . .iTho class is now

LOOK MORE TO THE FUTURE
Mother's Vision Sometimes Too Lim
ited, is the Opinion of Writer
in Leading Magazine.
Why do so nany mothers fall? Is
it not because they lack imagihdtion?
Because they cannot see the effect of
their training on their children's later
life? They have fixed rules to fit pres
ent circumstances. Their discipline is
for today; none of it has reference to
the future. If mothers had a little
more vision, they would not try to
govern their children to suit parental
convenience, but they would let the
youngsters be themseulves. A mother
should be able to see the man in the
child, as the gardener sees the bush
with its blossoms in the tiny sprout;
and she should care for her children
as ho cares for his plants-not trying
to twist them into unnatural shapes
but providing the proper conditions
for them to develop according to their
Help your child to develop judg
ment rather than compel him to obey
arbitrary rules. The arbitrary for
mulas of conduct you manufacture for
him today may not help him in the
least in his later relationships. When
your son grows to maturity he will
not be surrounded with the same con
ditions that made up the environment
of his childhood. le will perhaps go
to new places and come in contact
with new people. Even if he does not
leave his native town, he will have to
face new conditions; for his town will
change with the times. His city will
not harbor the same ideas that pre
vailed in his youth. Men will think
differently, and ho will have to keep
up with the procession. Are you pro
paring him to meet the tests of life
that will come to him when he is a
man? Are you preparing your daugh
ter to be a better mother than you
