Comfort For Stay at Homo Mothers.
"We are staying home this summer,"
said the young mother, "as we do not
think the baby old enough to be taken
out of its usual environment, and we
would not go without him." There
are no doubt thousands of young moth
ers and fathers doing the same thing.
They realize that there are a certain
number of years of their lives that
they must give to the children and
that they must put aside their own
comfort in order to do it Mothers
don't break down when they are doing
this sort of work as a general thing
and should try to live as calmly and
comfortably as possible under the cir
cumstances. It is always with relief
that one hears the young mother say
"we" are staying at home, for the
father owes it to his child as much as
the mother to be near it during the
critical months of babyhood. Together
they can most certainly do better for
the child than either one could alone,
and along with the cares of mother
hood should go hand in hand the re
sponsibilities of fatherhood. The child
who is only mothered loses much in
Its life, for the father's influence is
often sane where motherhood is only
sweet The well brought up child
must have the father's help as well as
the mother's through every step of his
life, and he generally gets it in Ameri
ca, whatever may be said of the better
training for parenthood in other coun
tries. The father has a double duty
to perform, for while he looks out for
his child he must also see that the
mother keeps herself in condition. An
irritable mother will very likely have
the same kind of child. She may not
be at all at fault, having been render
ed physically incapable of caring prop
erly for her child by worries of one
kind or another. So the young hus
band must see that she is amused if
necessary, that she has nourishing food
and that she Is not unduly worried by
all the business troubles of the family.
That precious baby does not realize all
the sacrifices that are made for him,
and he never will be aware of them
until he, too, stands with a child of
his own in his arms and the pride of
fatherhood in his eyes.
Educating the Children.
The bishop of London once said: "I
am convinced.that the uplifting of the
morality of our people lies above all
and everything else in educating our
children rationally and morally. I be
lieve that more evil has been done by
the squeamishness of parents who are
afraid to instruct their children in the
vital facts of life than by all the other
agencies of vice put together."
Of this same phase of education Dr.
Rosalie Slaughter Morton of New York
"The classes in social settlements are
doing a tremendous work in giving
both boys and girls many impersonal,
wholesome interests, and in each of
these settlements there should be class
es for fathers and mothers, where the
sex question is taken up frankly."
Week End Gifts.
. The house party guest who cannot
think of a suitable gift for a family of
children should look over an assort
ment of boxes fitted with all sorts of
indoor and outdoor games for boys
find girls and selling at the smallest
prices. A box, for example, contain
ing two little tennis rackets with balls
and a jumping rope is 25 cents, and
for a larger child a box with two
rackets and balls Is 50 cents or $1. A
box of battledore and shuttlecock Is
50 cents or in larger size $1. A special
outfit for little girls includes a battle
dore set, & catchaball and a jumping
rope, all with white and gold handles.
It. is 75 cents. A catchaball with a
trumpet end that issues a startling
blast Is 15 cents.
"Seeing Things at Night."
If mothers notice that the brains of
their little ones conjure up uncanny
sights and thoughts from the shadows
of a room more or less dark let the
light burn brightly. To force a child
to become accustomed to the darkness
is a grave error if its nervous system
is so organized that this forcing is
productive of a fright.
The nervous system of a child is a
very susceptible organization, and the
deleterious impressions made upon it
will often make their influence felt
throughout its whole after life. If the
child asks for a light under such cir
cumstances do not refuse it
A Birthday Ring From Germany.
A newly imported novelty from Ger
many is a wooden birthday cake ring
brightly painted in a manner to appeal
to children and pierced with holes, in
which the birthday candles are to be
set As the holes are many, It is possi
ble to have as many candles as are
necessary, even when the children of a
family are grown up. The ring of
wood is only about an inch thick, and
it is intended that the cake be set in
side this rim.
To the mothers who find it hard to
give the little ones castor oil make
ginger cookies and add a little more
sugar than the recipe calls for, and to
a common sized batch add two table
spoonfuls of castor oil and keep the
secret to yourself. Frost the top and
let the ones who are ailing eat of them
and see how well this remedy works.

How to Heat Cold Rooms In Wintry
In these winter days the home with

Traditionally every house that is
heated by the hot air furnace has "one
cold room." This cold room most fre
quently is that particular upstairs
room against which the cold winds
are blowing most directly. Likely this
room Is the northwest room of up

est What should one do to bring up
the hot air from the furnace?
That simplest thing is for the fur
nace attendant to discover the cold
pipe leading to the room and cut off
for a few minutes the heat to every
other pipe leading from the furnace.
At once this forces the combined heat
from the furnace Into the one open
delivery pipe whose cutoff remains
wide open. This body of heat forces

is rendered comfortable thereafter. j
Presuming that one has an electric j
fan. however, the fan is one of the
easiest instruments for correcting the
stubborn hot air register, the hot wa-
ter radiator or the steam radiator in
the cold room.
To urge the electric fan on the hot
air register place the fan with Its back
close to the register and turn on at j
full speed. This acts as a suction
pump, pulling the cold air from the
furnace pipe and drawing the heat
into the room.
In the case of a balky steam radi-
ator especially open a window and
turn the fan blast of cold air against
the radiator. Whatever slight heat is
In the radiator will be contracted by
cooling, and the tendency toward a
vacuum will serve to draw upon great
er warmth down the pipe. As the
steam (or water) moves up into the
radiator the continuation of the cool
ing and contraction forces the further
impetus of the heat until the desired
warmth is attained.
One further statement may interest
the reader. Hot water and steam heat
are the driest of all forms of heat de
livered into the modern house. The
hot water and hot. moist steam in the
radiator are sealed there. One can
not bring an artificial heat of 70 de
grees F. by means of the hot radia
tor without making the winter atmos
phere too dry. Evaporating water on
these fixtures alone will make the at
mosphere of the house moist enough to
be satisfactory to the lungs. And In
moistening the atmosphere it becomes
a more constant and effective deliverer
of the heat from fuel. Dry air is the
least capable of retaining beat even if
the air's dryness otherwise were satis

How to Treat Burning Feet.

which, being incased in tight fitting,

Hot. burning feet may be relieved
by putting on at bedtime a pair of
white cotton socks the soles of which
have been wetted with cold water and
over which are drawn dry worsted
ones. If the burning continues wet
the under socks again. Repeat thiM
process every night, and in a short
time a great improvement will be ex
perienced. Cold feet are a trouble to many at all
seasons of the year and are usually
caused by a defective or restricted cir
culation. Loose shoes and exercise
will often remedy this, but in the case
of a naturally languid circulation an
efficacious treatment is to bathe tbe
feet each night In hot water, and after
ward to plunge them into cold, then
rub them briskly with a rough towel
or flesh gloves.

There is Hair Beauty and Luxur

Did you ever have a dealer offer you J
a large bottle of something and tell ,
you it was a better remedy for the
hair than Newbro's Herpicide and
cheaper because in a larger bottle?
What? Certainly we knew you had.

isn't half large enough.
