Bright Colors Keep the
Children on Safe Side
Dress children in bright-colored
outer garments in wintertime for
their own safety, says the bureau of
home economics of the United States
Department of Agriculture. While
children should not play in city thor
oughfares or even on country high
ways, because of automobiles, there
are occasions when they have to
cross streets or when they try to re
trieve balls or other playthings from
the path of traffic. They must be
taught caution, but they can be fur
ther protected by dressing them in
bright, conspicuous colors which mo
torists can see from a distance.
Children like to wear gay colors.
Those of nursery-school age choose
them by preference. Those a little
older are governed to some extent by
what others wear, so it may be nec
essary for mothers to get together
and “create” a vogue for vivid colors
in outer garments.
As Blacks Remembered,
They Raised Memorial
Death came to two white traders
In Africa who had made friends with
the natives in a certain village. Their
black brothers wished to raise to
them a fitting memorial. They pu‘
up a stone, and carved on it—a
whisky bottie and a pack of cards.
The incident is recalled by ltev.
“Dick” Sheppard, in the Illustrated
Weekly of India.

Here for Purpose
All of us are born into the world
for a purpose, which we should de
termine and achieve. Our task may
be large or small, but, in the words
of Horace Mann, “we should be
ashamed to die until we have
achieved some victory for humanity.”

We’re Still Getting Mad
On as the Savages Do
When Tom Sawyer and the new
boy first met and took one another’s
measure they worked themselves up
to the point of combat by passing in
suits and dares. In the Arabian
desert, when the tribes feel the urge
for battle, they prepare for it by dis
patching impudent verse back and
forth. When one side feels that the
impertinence can only be atoned for
in blood the shouts give way to blows.
All very childish, of course. But
is it so' much different from the civ
ilized methods? Young Italians
threaten the British embassy in
Home and break the windows of Brit
ish places of business. The Brit
ish hurry troops to Egypt. The in
spired press of Italy is as contemptu
ous of all things British as are the
Bedouin versifiers of their tribal ene
mies. And Britain moves up warships
from Gibraltar to Malta, in the very
shadow of the Italian toe, as though
to pinch it. The principle Is the
same all the way through, and even
the practice does not increase great
ly in dignity.
Man of Tongue*
The world’s greatest linguist is an
Englishman. He is Sir George Grier
son, O. M., who is eightj-four ana
knows 300 languages. His chief in

the dialects of the backward commu
nities have never been written down.
Before he could study these dialects
properly. Sir George had to inveni

down words which the natives had

Grandmother Believes Health
and Wealth Responsibilities
Asserting that their grandmother is
•‘old-fashioned and ignorant of mod
ern methods of life,” the two grand
children of a famous financier pub
licly asked for her removal as their
The shortcomings of which these
children of sixteen and seventeen
complain on the part of their grand
mother are not with reference to
knowledge of financial affairs.
It Is not her faults as an Investor
of which they complain in asking to
have her removed as their guardian.
No. The matters in which siie is
“too old-fashioned” doubtless come
closer—In their opinion—than that!
Probably she is old-fashioned in
sucli annoying matters as health. At
her age she may be foolish enough
to imagine that at sixteen and seven
teen one is still growing mentally
and physically, and that wholesome
living is of paramount Importance.
Probably she cannot see the benefit
of burning the candle at both ends.
Faced with a choice between dancing
and sleep, she is probably unreason
able enough on occasions to rule out
the dancing.
Ana perhaps she is oiu-rasmoned
In money matters. Having been ac
customed to wealth long enough to
have a true sense of values, she prob
ably objects to extravagance. Too
old to see clearly, she probably feels
that merely having money is no rea
son for dissipating it. Indeed she
may even feel the possession of
wealth as a responsibility, and try to
train her grandchildren to self-re
specting handling of it from that
point of view.
Being old-fashioned, she may feel,
too, that having money is not enough
to bring one complete satisfaction In
life. She may be urging them to sow
the seeds of future usefulness—and
therefore content and happiness—in
study and serious thought about tak
Ing their place in the world as the
grandchildren of a man who from
humble beginnings became the ruler
of millions. That, of course, would
seriously interfere with their preoc
cupation of having a good time.
Yes. the grandmother is doubtless
old-fashioned in all of those ways.
And they are ways which can be very
annoying when one is sixteen or sev
enteen with plenty of money and no
dearth of people who are quite will
ing to let one be one’s own master.

Persistent Resistance
to Temptation Proof
To resist temptation once Is not
a sufficient proof of honesty. If a
servant. Indeed, were to resist the
continued temptation of silver lying
in a window, as some people let It
lie, when he is sure his master does
not know how much there Is of it
he would give strong proof of hon
esty. feut this is a proof to which
you have no right to put a man. You
know, humanly speaking, there is a
degree of temptation which will over
come any virtue. Now, in as far as
you approach temptation to a man,
you do him an injury: and. if he is
overcome, you share his guilt.—Doc
