The most intimate relation be tween mother and son cannot ig nore the individual element Those women who respect th personality and the individua rights of their children have ii fact the most permanent an< vital influence upon their rea character. Do not ask your boy any per sonal questions, such as 'Where are you going?' 'What have yoi been doing?' 'What are you go ing to do next?' 'Why can't yoi keep still a minute?' Leave hin free, but be to him that forc which shall draw and hold him Do not be shocked at anything he may do or say; or, if you are do not let him know it; neithe: be grieved. Let your face b< like the morning' to him. When ever he turns toward it let hin find in it evidence that you un derstand him and believe in him Let him know that he can opel his heart to you at any perplex ing moment without surprising or giving you pain, or that hi can shut you out, apparently without making you sorry. I you feel shut out keep it to your self and act as if you knew yol were not, for you probably ar not and will not be if you are the friend you ought to be. Do no cry over him, nor in his pros ence. Nothing disgusts a bob like tears shed because he hat been acting out what is in him. Do not fall in the error of sup posing you can save your boa by stress of 'strong personal in fluence,' and that you imiust keel impressing him with your owi experiences and beliefs. Keel the foundation of God's word un der every act of your life, ani be certain to hide yourself fron view behind it. All through his childhoot there should have been storec up in your boy's memory views beliefs, impressions, doctrines warnings, promises, which the Spirit of God can make use of The unmistakable evidences of power in your faith which keep. you calm, trustful and content t< leave him to work these thing; out for himself alone with God will be worth all the world t< him. Do not expect him to be morf religious than he is. A greu deal of trouble accrues from th( effort to compel the boy, wh( has come into the knowledge o: evil in his own nature, as well as in the world, to appear like thb innocent child he was before th< inevitable awakening. T h a* awakening from the ignoranct of innocence is always the crisib in a child's life, and if he find: out that you are better satisfie< with a sham religion now thai with an honest, outspoken ques tioning, the probabilities art that he will cultivate shams fo: your comfort, and open his rea thoughts to those who will ap plaud every expression of doub as if it were a declaration o: principle and will know just hov' to take advantage of his hones questioning to lead him into th< mazes of unbelief, if not of vice It is worse than useless to ex pect a boy's "religion" to mani fest itself -just like that of hi: mother or father, but especialla his mother. It is at this poin where so many lose their hold They keep alive a peculiar sor of self-consciousness in the chik and constantly irritate him b: trying to produce feelings an< sentiments which are to him ut terly impossible. Doubt is ofte> the result of trying to produc' faith. The young naturally be lieve it should be taken fo: granted by us as it was b: Christ. He recognized thei: faith when He said, 'Except y' become as a little child ye can not enter the kingdom of heav en.' Doubt must always -b learned. It finds belief alread2 in the field, and must crowd i out to find any place in which t< grow. If you go to work A< make your child believe in God to trust in Christ; if you keel nagging him with admonition: of faith instead of accepting the fact that he is only waiting t< see a manifestation of Christ a once to recognize. believe in love and follow Him, you wil yourself arouse questions an< doubt in his mind. Take it fo: granted that he will love and fol low Christ if he has had a fai chance to take the first step; fo until he loses confidence in Hin from some cause outside of him self, faith is his native air. I he does lose confidence it will b as a rule because he thinks h has found good reason to believ it is all a humbug and that thos who had made you believe it ha' "fooled" you. When he awakens from th ignorance of his innocent year he finds a thousand things t question. All are on about th same moral level in his estima tion. He is interested in every thing; so much so that lie car not stop his investigation for a: instant. He begins with him self, and of course, with what ever is mysterious about himnsel or his relations with the world He will not stop to 'bother' wit] well known things; and hereil lies the advantage in forestallin; curiosity on any subject whic] may lead to danger. He often becomes silent an< heedless. He is self centered and in his inexperience is in dat ger of forming wrong concer tions of everything. How can he in the midst of a world of per plexing problems which puzzle . -older heads avoid those mistakes that often lead to disaster? Surely not without a wise and friendly leader who will guide his thoughts out and away from himself to the right understand ing of the relation which he sus tains to all the world of things and the universe of truths. Do not expect him to accept any statement about good or evil as the end of investigation nor to - be satisfied with your belief that a thing is true. Your experi ence will not count very much with him. Do you think it ought? Then quarrel with Him who made your boy an individual in 1 his own right, but do not fret at the child. Your experience has a positive value to him; he has a right to it, and will use it probably as a basis of operations; but he will not accept it as just as good as his own, and you should not wish that he would, for God's way is the best, and it is His way for every individual to pick up Character by his own experiences with both good and eviL.--Mary Henry Rossiter.

Delicious A tar of Roses Is Chie3y 1 Made In Bulgaria. The far famed otto (ol attar) of roses is chiefly madc in Bulgaria. Kasanlik is the center of the rose growing coun try. Red roses only are used in mak .ing the perfume, but white roses, which grow more freely, form the hedges of the fields. The trees, which grow to a great height, are separated by paths nine feet in width to allow the oxen and plow to pass. The perfume is obtained t not only from the petals, but also from t the stalks and leaves. These give a peculiar scent, which adds greatly to - the delicacy of the perfume of the petals. October, April and June are the months for planting branches of the old trees. Weeding, pruning and digging are necessary for three years, when c they are full grown and repay the labor spent upon them by bearing for twenty years. The discovery of the delicious attar was quite an accident and took place three centuries ago. The Persian Prin cess Nour Djihan was strolling through the splendid galleries of ber palace with her betrothed (the M.ongolian] Prince Djihanguyr) and noticed in the rosewater basins about the passages an ugly, yellowish oil floating on the surface. Orders were instant%7 given to remove the unsightly fluid, when it] was discovered the perfume was also removed. Thus the virtue of the essen tial oil was found out, which is still called in Persia "Attar Djlhan." Culture and Riches. If one-tenth as much attention were devoted to the fools among the middle and working classes as is devoted to the fool sons of ths rich, we should be 1 In danger of believing with Carlyle: that the people are "mostly fools." Itt is true that the culture of the suddenly ] rich Is cruder and narrower than the culture of those who have had genera tions of wealth and leisure, but culture is relative. The culture of the most cultured classes in the old world is the result of large wealth possessed for generations. Culture is a matter of growth, but It never grows in poverty. The cheapness of the culture of the very rich in this country as compared with that of the aristocracy of old countries Is simply the difference be tween youth and age, a difference of experience. There is a comparative cheapness in the culture, bearing and -manners of the people of the west as compared with those of the east, and for the same reason. The aristoc racy of the south and of New England have a refinement quite unlike that ofi1 the newly made rich in New York anQ Chicago and the west. They have been longer in the mnaking.-Guntonl's Maga zine. Shaving the Bridegroom. The shaving of the bridegroom on his wedding day Is a Bulgarian custom which, handed down from pre-Chris tian days, Is still observed with due formality, especially in country dis tricts. While the barber is at his task a dancing crowd of young folks surrounds him and the bridegroom. As the latter's hair is cut the snippings are carefully collected by some of the girls for preservation in one of the bride's chests. The barber, when his work Is done, receives a small white linen cloth -as a present and also a trifing sum of money from each person there. Then the bridegroom kisses the hands of the girls, washes his face and dons his wedding dress, which must first b carefully weighed three times by one s *the boys. Highland )Iakeshifts. LA few years ago accommodations in the highlands of Scotland were very -primitive. It is related that the young fDuchess of Gordon, on Inquiring how the late duchess managed toentertain so much company at Kinrara, where there seemed no room, was toldg~ the butler that for weeks at a time ne had slept on the top of the kitchen dresser. A niece and two other young ladies were known to have slept in the duchess' bedroom, which probably was not large, for they were sent out to wash in the neighboring brook. Miss Macdonell of Glengarry, who told this, said also that there was a waterfall near Ochtertyre which the late Sir William Murray and his brothers used as their shower bath. Creases In Drawings. -Creases in drawings, engravings, etc., may be leveled out by following these instructions: Fasten the engraving or drawing by drawing pins on a board, ~face downward, on a sheet of paper; on the back place another sheet of paper which retains a very slight quantity of moisture. Over this place flannel or blotting paper, and, taking a hot iron, pass it carefully over the part where Ithe creases have been made until they disappear and then submit the draw ings or engravings to pressure between n inter's gla boards. CROWDED THE HOUSE. The Sucie ful Scheme of a Theat , rcal Presx Agent. An agent who was in despair owing to his failure to get any advertising that had not been paid for found him self in a big western city with his at traction playing to strong competition and something desperately needed to attract public attention to his show. In one scene of the play a pair of hand cuffs figured. The agent had an in spiration. Ie had the star snap a handcuff on her wrist, and then the agent concealed the key, saying it had been lost. The star was compelled to finish the act wearing the handcuff dangling from her wrist. The audi ence knew it should not be there, and comment was aroused. Between the next two acts the agent drove the ac tress swiftly to police headquarters, near at hand. The police captain was mysteriously called out. He was in formed that the actress must have the bandcuff removed at once and secretly, as she did not wish news of her pre dicament to get out. The chief brought out a big bunch of keys, and finally the handcuff was removed, but not until a dozen alert reporters had snuffed a "story" and were plying the reluctant press agent with questions. Finally the whole story was pumped out of the agent, the star having returned to fin ish the play. Next morning the first page of every local paper had a fine story, descriptive of the plight of the actress who had accidentally fastened a handcuff to her wrist. The public was interested and flocked to see the play, and the resourceful agent went on to the next town wondering what new thing he could spring on the sen sation lovers there.-William Loftus in Reader Magazine. lotice Municipal Registration.
