TALES OF TRAVEL
TOLD TO WOMEN
Informal Gathering Listens to
Mrs. D. C. Heger
Interesting , remlnlscenes of her
travels in Europe were recounted to
the members of the Forum club by Mrs.
D. C. Heger yesterday afternoon at the
regular members' day meeting.
These informal gatherings are held
once each month, with no regular pro
gram scheduled, the features of the oc
casions being supplied by those who
happen to be present. Mrs. Heger from
her store of experiences gained during?
some months abroad entertained her
audience for about an hour, after which
coffee and cakes were served.
"IF I HAD ONLY
"If I had only realized when I was a
child how much more work it made to
have people disorderly and careless
about their things I am sure I should
have been more careful. But I didn't
That is the oft expressed sentiment
of one young woman who has recently
gone to housekeeping in a home of her
own. And I fancy there are many of
us who could say the same thing—we
didn't realize. And not about that mat
ter only, but about many matters.
I have heard it said that children
are naturally selfish. I beg to differ.
I think they are naturally full of the
most generous Impulses. But I do ad
mit that they are naturally thoughtless
and that is what makes them seem
selfish. It is not that they would be
deliberately selfish and unkind, it is
Just that they have lived so short a
time that they do not understand the
trouble and pain and self-denial they
may be the cause of—they just don't
I once knew a wise mother who
grasped this fact and based her train
ing on the effort to make her children
realize exactly what they were doing
when they were thoughtllss or care
less or unreasonable.
For Instance, take the very matter of
which the young? housewife spoke. This
rriother had a daughter who was terri
bly slack about leaving: things around.
She would come into the house and
leave her coat on one chair and her fur
on another, throw her gloves on the
table and put her hatpins on the man
telpiece, and only put away her hat
because she was afraid something
would happen to the feathers if she
didn't. Her mother talked and talked
to no avail. Finally she decided to
make the daughter realize the trouble
she was causing, so she told her that
for the next week she, the mother,
would not pick up one thing that any
of the children left lying around, that
her daughter must keep the house in
order as a punishment for past mis
deeds, and that if she failed to do so
she would not be allowed to go to a
certain function to which she was look
ing forward. As all the other children
inherited more or less tendency to dis
orderllnees from an artistic father, her
task was by no means easy. Needless
to say, the end of the week found her
saying, "I never realized how much
trouble leaving things around made. I
will be more careful in the future."
Again when the two older children
got the habit of teasing for things
that were beyond the family purse, this
wise woman, instead of scolding, simply
took them into her confidence about
the family income and outgo, asked
their help about keeping the accounts,
and without saying a word of her pur
pose to them, soon made them realise
for themselves why they could not
hay* everything that other chlldrei*
had. And after that she had no more
trouble with teasing.
Look back into your own childhood
and ■«« If the unkind, the selfish, the
thoughtless, the cruel things that you
did were not all done because you did
What better basis then could we have
for training our children than helping:
them to realize now instead of years
afterward when It is too late?

the frills are of white lawn while the band
is of velvet ribbon. It would be pretty

made from voile or from any simple
