Do You Know How Easily Your Boy’s Instinct to Kill May Be Reformed? By MARY E. WALTER (Copyright. I*l C. by M. K. Walter.) With a slingshot in one hand and a dead robin in the other, Billie Telfer stopped short on the porch. Hla mighty hunter instinct of the 12-year-old boy struggled with half shame at the horrlAed expression with which his mother met him. "Bon! to think you would kill a bird!" she cried, with visions of what her eldest born might do at id. at 30! Blllle'a sisters stood by, sorrowing for the bird, sorrowing for Billie, wondering where and how the hand of punishment would fall. That evening Father and Mother Telfer conferred, while Billie grew restless under suspended sentence. Two days later a bundle of old boards, shingles, bark, tree limbs, was dumped In the yard. Two gov ernment booklets came by mail. One of those booklets which Mrs. Telfer put Into the hands of her wary son turned out to be a Joyous revelation to him. It waa called "Bird Houses and How to Build Them." Its diagrams and pictures Atted marvellously with the bundle of boards and bark. Suddenly the rampant boyhood that had revelled in slingshot destructiveness turned to building bird houses. Billie ran sacked the public library for more bird books. He converted all the rubbish he could And into bird bungalows, food shelters, and plat forms. The second pamphlet opened the eyes of the young hunter to the use fulness of birds. They are. he found, not intended as slingshot targets. They eat harmful Insects and noxious weed seeds and take cultivated fruit and grain only when deprived of natural foods. It was like meeting old friends to And that the booklet described and pictured birds that lived near. He began to regret that some of those birds must have suffered last winter from lack of his bird houses. Only a month ago Billie’s "pun ishment" began. In that month the wonderful field of bird lore has been opened to his eager mind. He can name all "our birds." He points them out to his mother, sis ters, and boy friends on their bird tramps. These "trampe" serve the Fashions for Americans Ths School Oirl’s Drees. Nothing Is more delightfully sug gestive of springtime and flower* than n young girl properly gowned; and the pattern shown here Is youthful, simple, attractive, and easy fb make. Although the’quaint espe style of 50 years ago Is Introduced in the waist, another waist design Is given with ths pattern for those who prefer n simple, loose blouse with no seams other than those of the underarm and shoulder. In the more elaborate waist the cape, used as an ornament to the upper portion, may be of contrast ing color or material, or of the same goods with a fancy border. This frock Is constructed of blue gingham, with a striped white and blue gingham lower portion, and the same striped goods used as a border to the cape and sash. Pieces of the atriped fabric are cut into cuffs. Ths costume Is very charm Ing and girlish. Your own taste will suggest a col or combination that is becoming; and I suggest that where thin sum mer materials are employed you moke the entire skirt in one piece and trim the bottom with ruffles VBven one ruffle Is oh arming, and there la no doubt that skirts with ruffled edges outwear those finished with a hem. Materials adapted to this sort of dress are taffeta, sport silks, and washable silks. Japanese and Chi nese crepes, ginghams, lawns, and any pretty cotton or linen fabric. Evening fabrics, however, or those of very sheer testure. are not suit able for fuck n dress.

No goody-goodiuess has prompted Billie's bird love A wise mother diverted his natural boy activity from killing to the interest in the living thing that cornea from knowl edge of it.

Bi/^IRLS’ ir vj job Work of a Governess. BY JESSIE ROBERTS. "My Dear Miss Roberts—Could you tell me what the duties of a governess are supposed to be? Whether one is required to have a great deal of education? I have never followed a prescribed schedule of studies, but I have read a grra* deal of history as well as most of the best books of standard English literature. I have a diploma from a business college, which I presume is a very :-mall asset for a governess. I might add that 1 ini fond of chil dren. "Are there any hooks on thin sub ject? An> information yon can give me will ue greatly appreciated. Sincerely yours, m." There are a good many degrees in governesses, and I lon t see why your education is a drawba<k. If you are able to teach. That might get one or two volumes on the Montes sorl method, not in order to use It. perhaps, but btcauae it gives »n ex cellent point of view cn the whole subject of teaching and understand ing children. A nursery governed, who takes the smaller children under her charge, must be partly a nurse, put ting her charges to bed. dressing and bathing them, and taking them to pi ty and walk. She ought to be able to teach them simple calisthenics and games, to tell them stories and keep them nmused, and sbe should be able tc teach them the rudlpients to start them on the rchool pa'h. A mother usually looks ,'cr breed ing in a governess, since manners are pari of tlie child’s education With young children a cnarming presence, a love of the little things, a sweet voice pnd sunny temper, es pecially the ability to interest and amuse and control w-lthout viol* nor, are big assets. If Is only when the youngsters are older that the moth er seeks a finished teacher: one who holds diplomas and knows one or two foreign languages. A well-read yourg gentlewoman who loves children should have no difficulty in se<uring a position as governess to voting children. SULZER AND FOSS TO ADDRESS DRYS HERE NEXT MONTH William Sulzer, former governor of New v o rk. and Eugene Foss, for mer governor of Massachusetts, will address the state prohibition con vention. which will Vneet in Detroit.

Foss recently came out for It as a nation wide Issue. Neither Is a Prohltion party member.

When you put confidence enough in a boy to tog him out in a good-looking, good-fitting suit, invariably he will endeavor to deserve that confidence.
