It Is Wise to Remember
That It Takes Two to Make

"It takes two to make a quarrel,"

away Mrs. Flutterby's tears.

"There you are!'' exclaimed the older
woman. "Lack of self control 1 I tell

girls' school I would spend less time
In teaching conchoJogy and botany and
more In grounding my pupils In good,
old fashioned self control. It would
certainly do them more good In after
life. Just look at the girls nowadays,
my dear, and notice bow many of
them lack it altogether. They are
fidgety, hysterical, and, Instead of al
lowing the masculine sex to run after
them, as the Creator wisely Intended,
they are simply crazy for attention and
make themselves cheap because they
haven't enough self control to watt

"Divorces were never so frequent In
the old days, I can tell you. Women
had self control then. They learned

The annual report of the Day Nureery
and Hospital for Bablas, at No. 207 Wa»h- j
Ington street, which Is being prepared for |
presentation next month, will he one of .
the most encouraging reports of the In- |
stitutlon since Its establishment. The
splendid work of the hospital and nursery
In behalf of sick, homeless, friendless
babies and children less than three years I
of age has never been more potent than
since Its last yearly report, and It has
become » fitting expression of the char
ity ot the prominent Wllmlngtonlane In
terested In Its work. Its success Is pecu
liarly gratifying as being In large mea
sure the result of the devetlon of the late|
Bishop Coleman.
A visit to tha hospital would be a
valuable object lesson to mothers. Such
Is the mode of treatment and manage
ment. that only three deaths have occur
red each year for the last threa years.
This is largely due. of course, to the fact
that the treatment consists of plenty of
fresh air, regular eating and exercise,
rather than the free use of patent
"syrups" and "tonics."
Use the Dispensary.
Encouraged by their success of the last
several years the officers of the Institu
tion are now seeking a wider field ef en
deavor and are trying to have the dispen
sary connected with the hospital brought
to the attention of the public. For some
time It has been the regret of the man
agers that tb* dispensary has not been
more largely patronised by mother! and
during the coming year an effort will be
made particularly to give this department
of the Institution Its widest possible use
The Institution grew from a day nur
sery established In 1890 In connection with
St. Michael's Episcopal Church by the
Rev. A. I. duPont Coleman, son of the
late Bishop Coleman, and he was ma
terially aided by the latter In bringing tue
institution to the Importance and value
It haa attained. The day nursery soon out-1
grew Its original quarters and was re
meved to a larger building in the south-j
