I BULBS I’D LIKE To HAVE " • .V,-' -- ~ • I Household ; ELPS —By MARY I KK I Csi mi is. i, rr— To be "afraid of the dark" is one of the real tragedies of childhood. To be sent up a flight of dark stairs into a black abyss full of vague terrors, to be lefl alone iu bed with the friendly light turned out. is torture for the sensitive child. Argument, and punishment aliki seem futile, and often Hie parents lose patience with the child, and. particularly if it is a boy, add ridi cule and taunts of cowaidiee to the misery of his fears. The pity of it is that Hie grown ups have themselves to blame lor the condition, for the child is neces sarily ignorant of fear until the idea of associating dark with danger Is suggested to nltn In some way. Here is ihe story of a «b« little mother and how she cured a very bad case of terrorltla. ’.et her tell it in her own words; At some time or other Billie must have heard the servants or tho other children discussing gliosts and goblins, for one night, when he was close to four years old. he startled me by screamipg out In fear when I turned out the light in his room and started to close the door. For a long time he was so hysterical that he could not tell me what the Outburst* of Everett True. DETROIT TIMES matter was, hut at last I under stood that 'here was a “big black thing" in the corner, and that It would “g?t him" If the room was dark. 1 tried to explain that it was the shadow cast by the chest of drawers; he would listen and seem (jutted, but a.- soon as the light went out he would begin to scream again. This went on for weeks, and was beginning to exhaust us both when 1 hi: upon the curative plan. We invented a game which we er.lled “blind seek." From the play box we each selected five toys; then we went into his bedroom and with tiie gas turned very low hid the toys. The light was then turned entirely out and each of us went into the room alone, closed the door and hunted for the hidden toys. At first Billy wanted the door Ipft open "just a tiny hit" and to he sure that I was outside In the hall; but soon the play spirit took possession of his mind and he forgot to be afraid. After that he would go m sleep wondering where he could hide the toys the next night so that I could not find them, and the dark room became a place of fascinating pos sibilities instead of a chamber of horrors. :Jow Billie is notorious for his fearlessness, and 1 hough he has |;robahly forgotten that such a game as “blind seek" ever exis'ed. the les son it tanght has become a part of him. l*rln(lnß—(tif plain neat kind—(tint Is right—Time- Jot, llept —Wain ».V-’0 —By Condo. —By Allman Can’t Sink; Can’t Freeze!
