Mrs. Graham is a lady of the old
school. She obeyed her parents when
©he was young and afterward success
fully brought up six children of her own
■who came when they were called and
otherwise betrayed an active belief in
the theory that the maternal word was
law and the end of all things.
Therefore, Mrs. Graham took it hard
when her third daughter, Susan, be
came a convert to the new theories
on the proper way of disciplining ju
iveniles and developing their intellects.
ISusan's 9-year-old daughter, Adaline,
{was going to grow to maturity with
out the humiliation of corporal pun
iishment, without the breaking of her
iproud spirit, without the crushing of
her originality into conventional
molds. At least, that is how Susan
explained her theories to her mother
when Mrs. Graham remonstrated at
Adaline's elevating her muddy boots
to a resting place on a new $10 Per
sian sofa pillow adorning her grand
mother's davenport. Mrs. Graham had
suggested the old-fashioned application
of the back of a hairbrush as suitable
to the case, but Susan had cast up her
hands in horror.
"I never punish Adaline, mother!"
she remonstrated. "Whipping is bar
barous! I point out the error of her
■ways, recognizing she is a human be
ing with a brain capable of being con
vinced. Then she does not repeat the
offense, neither does she lose her re
spect for me nor for herself."
"I wouldn't interfere with Adaline's
self-respect for the world, Susan," said
her mother, crisply, "but seeing you
are going to put those beliefs into prac
tice during your visit I hope you won't
mind if I lay away my expensive cush
ions and dress the brocade furniture
in hollands."
At dinner that night Adaline began
on her third helping of pudding before
her grandmother, who had been
squirming, finally opened her mouth.
"She'll be sick," she said to her daugh
Susan looked mildly surprised. "If
Adallne wants a dozen servings of pud
ding, mother," she said gently, "she
is to have them. If she is sick she will
see the foolishness of greediness, and
not do it again. I never interfere."
Mrs. Graham shut her lips tightly.
"There's a bottle of painkiller in the
medicine chest," she remarked incon
sequentially. "And the hot water bag
is hanging on the hook. I dislike to
be disturbed after I have once got to
Adaline looked at her grandmother
contemptuously. "Hm," she said be
tween spoonfuls, "when I have aches
I holler. I make everyone come and
pit around me to wait on me. Mamma
bays I am not to be repressed. It
would interfere with my pro-prog-pro
Mrs. Graham gasped and hrr hands
twitched. Her daughter was placid and
beaming. "Dear Adaline," she said,
smoothly, "understands so cleverly my
attempts at doing my duty by her. It
is so comforting."
) Mrs. Graham is a delicate and prim
lady, so possibly she did not snort as
she arose, but it soundfed much that
•way. And in her eye there was a light
at. which in years gone by Susan had
iQuaked. It was just as well she did
not see it now. The light lingered
steadily till the day came when Susan
went to visit an old schoolmate and
left Adalinç in her grandmother's
charge, then it glowed like an arc
"Adaline," called Mrs. Graham, for
the third time, during the morning,
"did you hear me tell you to come and
put away your dollf
and their clothes
you left scattered
all about the li
"Of course," Ada
line answered, very
leisurely. "But I
don't want to. I'd
rather look out of
the window."
Before Adaline
loomed her grand
mother,, who turned
the young person
about with no gen
tle hand. "Do you
intend to mind me or not?" she in
quired, with ominous calm.
Adaline's bullet eyes opened in gen
uine surprise. "Why. can't you hear?"
she asked. "I said I didn't want to.
And when I don't want to do a thing
I am never made to. It would be bad
for my high spirits, mamma says."
The battle light in Mrs. Graham's
eyes doubled in intensity. "Come here.
Adaline," she saul, and Adaline, still
curious, went. She made the acquaint
ance of the back of the hairbrush,
wielded with all the expertness of a
hand long skilled in its application.
There was plenty of science about the
experience, but it did not appeal to
Adaline. Her remonstrances had not
the remotest effect on Mrs. Graham,
who, when she finished, looked re
markably at peace and liappy.
"Please pick up your doll things,
Adaline," she repeated.
And the haste with which Adaline
minded the request would have star
tled her mother out of a year's growth.
It is still a mystery to Susan why her
child was so strangely meek, humble
and obedient during the rest of her
visit at her grandmother's. But Mrs.
Graham and Adaline both kept the se
The forestry bureau at Manila,
which is in charge of Capt. Ahern, U.
S. A., is an inheritance from the
Spanish government, says Science. It
was established some 35 years ago and
through its officers and employes
supervises the government forest prop
erty, which is estimated to comprise
between 20,000,000 and 40,000,000 acres.
The Philippines are known to possess
over 400 species of trees, and a more

She is the quaint
est little old tody
in the world. Her
glistening white
hair is always done
in little sausage
curls and she wears
crisp gowns of black
silk "with real lace
about the throat
and wrists. Her lit
tle shriveled, knot
ted hands are laden
with diamonds and pearls and her tiny
feet are, hidden in satin slippers of
the softest kid. Her rooms, look
ing out over a park, are like dreams
come true. They are furnished in pale
sweet colors and the rose bowls are
crowded with flowers the year around
When she goes to air she has a dark
brougham, with her own monogram
on the panels, and a coachman and
horses warranted to be perfectly re
liable and not afraid of the cars, writes
"The Girl Philosopher" in the Chicago
Daily News.
She herself sometimes declares that
all this luxury seems like a passing
dream. In her heart she believes that
it is awesomely extravagant to wear
silk gowns for everyday, and she
thinks that tatting is quite as good
a finish for neck and sleeves as this
real lace that can never be washed
with honest yellow soap and water.
"But I've got to live up to my son Will
iam's idees," she says with a comical
sigh. "Though sometimes I do jest
long for a dinner of corned beef and
cabbage instead of one of these here
course things where I get hungry
while they're changin' plates."
Then for a Jittle while she is silent.
Perhaps she is thinking of the time
when those little knotted hands were
red and hard from toil and those lit
tle feet were always a-weary from con
stant trudging on the farm. Then she
bursts into another peal of laughter.
"But the most ridiculous thing Will
iam and Mattie has tried yet was to
say I must have a maid all to myself
—not a hired girl, but a real maid to
fuss around and do up my hair and
lace my shoes and all them kind of

William and Mattie saw my maid
traipsing around when they thought
she was on duty. They begun to maka
inquiries and then the whole story
come out.
"Do you know, I jest felt like I had
been caught stealing? But I wouldn't
let 'em blame Maria, for she'd jest
done exactly what I told her to do. I
paid her to let me alone—and she done
it. But when William and Mattig
caught me I acted iest that sheepish.
Finally I up and told them the whole
thing and how I had jest kept a maid

"Then William laughed till I wa.t

I jest had a notion to say that I could

chicken fixin's, but I didn't, for onct
I heard him say to Mattie: 'The things

Elizabeth Cady Stanton declares thai
a woman should keep her family name
through life and not have it merged
in that of her husband. Mrs. Stanton
would be delighted with the custom
pertaining in the Channel Islands
those remnants of England's French
empire lying off the coast of France.
In the Channel Islands the woman
does not change her name on mar
riage; no matter how often she changes
partners, she carries her maiden name
with her to the grave.

"Now Dont Get the Blues "
When a cheerful, brave and light-hearted woman is sud
denly plunged into that perfection of misery, the blues, it is
a sad picture.
It is usually this way :
She has been feeling out of sorts for some tîme, experi
encing severe headache and backache ; sleeps very poorly
and is exceedingly nervous.
Sometimes she is nearly overcome bv faintness, dizzi
ness, and palpitation of the heart ; then that bearing-down
feeling is areadfully wearing.
Her husband says, "Now, don't get the blues I You will
be all right after you have taken the doctor's medicine/'
But she does not get all right. She grows Worse day by
day, until all at once she realizes that a distressing female
complaint is established.
Her doctor has made a mistake.
She loses faith ; hope vanishes : then comes the morbid,
melancholy, everlasting blues. She should have been told
just what the trouble was, but probably she withheld some
information from the doctor, who, therefore, is unable to
accurately locate her particular illness.
