THE WASHINGTON TIMES. MONDAY. OCTOBER 5. 1914.- AGAZIN AGE F EVERYBODY Va JtLL i I When Little Boy Came Home Late from School By Winifred Black CepTTlght. 1914. by Xfwpiper Feiture Service. Inc. i h f'mKEKr HL2 i?P The Daily Editorial For Women a 3?rtce 2-u y&& THE Little Boy was late for luncheon. The Little Girl was on time I looked evcrwhere. said the Little Girl, "but the Little Boy wasn't anywhere to be seen. I thousht he'd Kot ahead of me and come home alone. Hadn't I better run back and hunt for him"" But we told the Little Girl no. and we handed her her plate and put a nice hot chop on it and some salad, and there was a glass of milk and there were popovers. and the Little Girl was ven- hungry and everything tasted very good, she said. It was the first day of the new school in the new city, and there was n great deal to tell The teacher was sweet. Just sweet, so the Little Girl said, and the little girl across the aisle was a darling, and some one lent her a geography and somebody else showed her the place In the history, and there were some new songs. And, dear me, what a queer name Rameses was, and why had she never even heard of him before, and It was all that she could do to keep from laughing when thev talked about Cheops-. "It sounded like somebody trying to say chops and stammering over it, and recess was only ten minutes long this morning, and " But the one who loved the Little Bov best of all was not hungry, and the was not at all Interested in Rameses. and she Had to pretend to laugh when she heard about Cheops. The Boy Who Was Lost. Where was the Utile Boy? What had happened to him? Suppose he fell in with some of those "roughs" from one of the lower streets. Would he know how to defend himself? What If they persuadod him to go with them and join one of their outrageous gangs that the Juvenile Protective League people are always ta"lklng about? There were two turnings on the nay from school. Suppose he took the wrong one and got down to the foot of the hill where the wharf was. The boats always' fascinate him so. What if he stayed there and played and fell into the water and nobody ever knew whatever became of him, and weeks afterward some one would bring a little faded water-soaked hat and it could be "Little Girl,'' said the one who loved the Little Boy best of all, "how could you ever come home without the Little Boy.? Why didn't you " "Oh. little squirrel upon the ground." Who was it whistling Just outside, the door. "Why do you run so guy?" Singing now, a hand upon the knob, a foot upon the threshold, a hat in the air. a gay laugh, the Little Boy was home, safe and sound and rosy and bright-eyed and proud as a peacock and us vainglorious as the biggest toad who ever sat upon a lily leaf and braggee about how big he was, for the con sideration all the admiring little lady toads in the family and out of it. "Our room wasn't out till quarter past 12," said the Little Boy. 'I came home with some of the kids. Lost! Ha!" For incredulous scorn no sound on earth could equal that "Ha!" "What do yix thing I am, anyhow, a baby?" A Man In the House. "Gee, I'm hungry." And hungry he was, and away went chops and salad and popovers and gingerbread, slice after slice of it. And he talked all the time, very loud, every minute, and there was a proud swing to hfs shoulders and a look of fine elation in his eyes, for he had gone out into the great world and met his fellows and coped with them as an equal. And he had come home alone and haS frightened all the women folks and made them worry over him, and so he was a man and knew it and was glad. And when he had gone Dack to school the one who loved him best of all went Into his little room and picked up. a few things she found there. A drawing of a cat, made in red crayon, a shell brought from the shore Just the di; before and an initial carved in It bv a hand not vet too surely crafty, a little, old. faded summer hat, a .-ed bandana handkerchief with big dots in it. that was from the cowboy suit. And the one who loved him best of all wrapped these things up in a little p.ckage and' put them awav in an old trunk, and she" locked the trunk and took the key and hid it and then she went and sat on the balcony quite alone. And all the time" it rang in her ears, the little kindergarten song that the Little Boy was singing when he came running home to her that noon. "Oh. littlfe squirrel upon the ground. Why do you run so fast?" And the eyes of the one who loved him best of all were full of tears, but still she smiled and was very happy, for It Is sc that mothers are made.

By BETH JEFFRIES. Mnn brilliant but utterly Impractical ruggestions have been made of late, to the efiect that women could stop the war if they wisnetl. They might wear black until the affair was over, or they might lefuse to hear children or they might refuse any aid to the belligerents, maintain the dreamers. All of which may be good theory, but It is difficult to praeth-e. What is here. here, .and it cannot be IrJi-hJd any more than can the tides, but future war can be prevented by the women, if they will sow the seeds of peace in the minds of the next genera tion. The ery men who are stalnlnsr th fields of Belgium today with their blood are men who have been raised on war propaganda. The war in all its fierce ness 1 the result of a prenatal and post natal influence which Is almost inconceivable In its greatness. Only by instilling In the minds of our infants today the necessity of world peace as a debt to the individual can we avert the war of the future. It is the sacred duty of every wom an to make her son and her daughter an advocate of peace. Death, destruc tion and madness should not be made the meanlnc of the .world "soldier." The boy should not be taught that to die for one's country is the prime and ultimate end of a soldier. Nor should the girl be Instilled with the ld& that she must bear sons In order that tho peace of the nation be maintained. The most Impressionable and pliable thing in me worm is tne. oraln of a child between the ages of three and fifteen. Is it not natural that the child vvho plays with a toy sword and a toy cannon, who is versed in tho art of how and why to kill, should grow up jnio a mannooa wnicn admits a will ingness to slaughter? The battles of today should not be mscussea witn cnnaren in anv light heartedness. Although the deeds of war are Drave and sometimes express ive of the most noble In man. Is It Hc-ht that the childish mind should be taught to ignore the awrul result of '.hat bravery and that misplaced and ab normal nobility? "As the twig Is bent, so will the tree Incline." In Europe it was bent for MURDER. DESTRUCTION, and the destruction of property regardless of Its ownership. In America let the mothers bend It for intelligence, broad-mindedness, and the conservation of human life and en deavor. The fathers bear an equal share of the burden, but it Is for the mothers and teachers of this country" to carry the peace propaganda In and out of the intimate dallv life of the next generation, and in doing so to avert the hideous fate of Germany and the rest of Europe.
