’’ )lnkinn Mannas"
By THEODORA BROWNFIELD
_-_J
~ «" - --
"Mary Betty lias such nice man-,
net's. I wish my children would be
have like her when we • out to
dine!” How often we hear n mother
comment thus on some little girl
wlm is "conspicuous" l'or her lady
like ways.
Indeed, manners are to be valued
as much iti children as in grown
people. These very little ones are
later to lie Hie grown people, and
if their manners are to become a
part of their everyday life, these
graces and little courtesies must
I he encouraged to grow up with
I them, so that they w ill reach per
fection in later years.
I have in mind a mother who ha
made a special point of good man
ners in bringing up iter t-'x year-old
daughter. This does m ' . lean that
she wants this little one to have an
affected society suavity, hut that she
wants her to reflect the charm and
, refinement of the household. The
[mother demands company manner.-,
every day in Hie wcl;. Sit" server

'room rather limn yfntid Hie informal j
! ity of Hie breakfast room or kiicln.-n
; nook, although she dot's her own
i work and it means extra hems hold ]
■ tasks.
This may -c an a trivial slop in j
[ manner-mulling but children respond
! more quickly to example rial t--1 e-1
j roundings than Urey do to preach in",
'and instructions. Dinner in the din ,
i ing-rooni. in this case, means liiai j
extra pains are taken to have the,
| meal pi. usant and ntti-.ctive. and |
, everyone is expected to help main-1
i tain this atmosphere. Tit' mother
may still wear In r house dress Inti
j it is sure to lie spick ami span j
'and the little six-year-oltl is dressed]
i late in the afternoon after her nap
] ready for the evening meal. He.'|
I manners are practiced with the rc-.- t I
1 of the family and. rim I aims that |
j politeness is not to be put on when]
[going cun to dine or iiuvincompany
I Itut is to be worn'on all occasions,
i Children usually do not intend to*
he rude but the very novelty of a 1
situation sometimes embarrasses and ,
so surprises them that they do not]
i know what to do. Consequently “net- j
j big smart" is their refuge, and tooj
[often it appears at 4he table! A lit !
; tie home practice would save all this]
] hlimllitation for both mother and
| child.

verted the try for a point. Manning
looped a clever sl)ot from the side
