7 TOPICS OF INTEREST TO EVERY WOMAN MISTAKE TO DO TOO MUCH FOR CHILDREN Constant Sacrifice for Them Dwarfs Their Spirit of Ap preciation. Br FltACfc.S MIIFFCR. It la very beautiful the relation of par cnt to child, when It la ail It can be. all that nature meant It to be In the, J ears of dependence, of helpless ne'S and of growth It exacts much In the way of sacrifice patience and brooding care, all extended with a mmcalth of demo tion that makes the giving easy and nat ural As time goes on ami in ago is reached when little minds and bodies become act ive and more Ies independent It Is still i pleasure and an eas duty for parents lo drop self from their reckoning and to demote themselves heart and soul to the Appealing task of making life sweet and a smooth and easy as may be for the little folks o are dearer than lifo to them Offhand one would sa that parents could not do too much to show the strength of their lome and their willing ness to sacrifice because there Is an ele ment of dutm. Inmolved as well as the beautiful flavor of love, and It Is right that acriflco should loom big and high In that dutv It is true that parents owe much to the children them start in life but It Is ery easj to let the protection, the foster ing care and unstinted demotion pour forth so freelv giving all and a"klnB nothing In return that the joung folks grow to take It ill for granted Get 1trone Idea. nd there the mistake begins 1 or it is a mistake to do so much for children when thej reach discerning mears that the come to bcllcme no mat ter what others ma do or fall to do that the have a right to look to rarents for sacrifice i right to be considered first of nil and a right to be sheltered from overs thing har-h anl unpleasant regardless of the cost. It Is prettv certain to dwarf or stifle the spirit of appreciation and the tender showing of deference and lome that ought to be spontaneous, for not man folk whether thej are little or big can stand in overflow of homage nd the mmorst of It is that children who hame accepted ill the sacrifice all t e unequa demotion and care without i thought of returning in kind are not unmindful not unseeing and obllv ious of the cost when thers are inmolved nd the difference !; right here others ame not been so forgetful of self them have looked for recognition have c I ected to hi shielded no less than to -lucid to le lovid no I s than to lome It IJoes No!
