That the unattended mothers of
these many children are often
sorely trlea knd perplexed to know
what to do for their young there la
ample evidence. Among the Jt.OOO
letters that have come to a certain
8tate Child Welfare Director dur
ing recent years a large number
have contained plea from tide par
tlcular class of mothers stories of
runaway boys, of unguarded girls
and of bitter experiences of various
other kinds have constituted the
bulk of these complaints. "A boy
needs a father" Is the substance of
the rather despairing conclusion of
the typical letter of the class here
conside4-
But the eompsnlenless mother
nied not despair of success in rear
ing her children, provided she fol
lows persistently a few tr(ed and
comparatively simple rules. While
It Is folly for the average mother
to rely on merely her Instinctive re
sources la child training, ahe may
now easily obtain the benefits of the
aueceasful experiences of
others of her class.
many
First of all. the mother should
study her problem through the use
of literary helps. rne National
Children's Bureau at Washington;.,
the State Board of Health, tha
State University, and tne depart
ment of education In any college
or normal school these may be
called upon for assistance and their
suggeationa followed with fair euo
ceas. Bat chiefly the task of the mother
la to choose a reasonable course
and stick to It. The typical mother
ia too yielding, too variable, too
"eaay." The average boy aoon
finds her weak spot and takes ad
vantage of It to break away front
dlaclpllne. "The one who doubts
la lost" is a rule of success here.
The weak, uncertain tone of com
mand of the mother who doubts
and hesitates In her decision Is
quickly detected by the youthful
Insurgent of the household.
Children live much by the law of
habit. They aoqolre good habits as
quiekly aa they do bad ones. So
the habit of obedlenoe must be In
voked aa a fundamental law of
child training. A sharp, poattlva
tone of voice, an attitude of cer
tainty, an air of authority all
these may be easily assumed by the
mother and they will soon 'become
habitual and surprisingly helpfuL
Thus habit and rhythm are Intro
duced into the order of the house
hold and life Is made easy and
pleasant for all.
The next task Is to grow with the
children. That la. learn to watch
for the changing order of events In
their natures. Do not keep your
boy In curls and dainty white
clothes after he has become large
enough of the rough-and-tumble
of the etreet and school.
Do not keep your girl playing
with baby dolls after she becomes
Instinctively Interested In her own
clothes. After having discovered
what the child normally and In
stinctively craves give It to him In
at least a modified and safe-guarded
form. Such is always a safe rule
of training.
- Finally, try to place your boy
where he can have the advice and
example of clean, manly men. He
had better become somewhat rough
If not a bit tough than grow up
a sissy boy. If his father Is living,
then remind him mat this age de
mands the production of a better
type of manhood than waa the rule
a generation ago. Urge that he try
to become truer, braver, mere capa
ble than hla father ever had an op
portunity to become. Do not nag or
lecture your ehlld with peaslmlatlo
visions of his failure or defeat.

I am eighteen, a hlgh-aehool

Previous to this position, my
employer who has been married
for several years, but has no
children took a great liking to
me. X decided to leave and
learned bis wife bad deserted
him.
He has proposed several times
to me; but since be has not as
yet been divorced I will not listen
to htm. Secondly, there is quits a
difference In age. as he Is thirty
two. Thirdly. It seems aa If X
would do injustice to my older
sister and to my father to son

-at my age.
I know this man thoroughly,

is a man possessing soma of the

would ertalnly not be doing year

a man who might even be able ta
help them a bit. Nor does the fast
that you have an older alstar, un

It Can Be Done.
TEAR MISS FAIRFAX:
Do you think a couple could
live comfortably on 125 a week?
Am conalderlng marriage, but
do you think that J15 per week
would go very far. O. E.

won't go very far. -But It can be
atretehed to cover the wants of twe)
people If they are good managers
and care enough for each other toga
without the foolish luxuries with
which we encumber life to-day. Don't
try to live In a fashionable neigh
borhood or to Indulge In extravagant
good times. Keep your rent dews
to eighteen or twenty dollars a
month, market carefully, dress
sanely and plan to save Sve or tea
dollars a month and not buy any
thing for which you oannot pay.'
Don't get the "charge It" habit, for
that lead to extravagance. Make
