ADVENT OF NEW POWERS Period When All the Possibilities of the Child Come to the Front and He Feels He Can Do Anything. By SIDONIE M. GRUENBERQ. AFTER dinner the grown-ups sat about on rockers down on the lawn while the younger people danced on the wide veranda to the music of a phonograph. A father was saying that so far as he could observe the chief reason for the high cost of living was to be found in the fact that the young people are so fickle in their tastes. He did not remember just how many dollars —but they were many—his son Percy had invested In cameras and ruby lights and dishes and chemicals less than a year ago, and now he did not care a bit for photography —was going in for geology, and had decided to go to col lege just to have a chance to study that. Father thought that he might have stuck to photography and finally worked into the business —it is a pretty good business —or he might have made up his mind about geology last year and have saved all that money. Mrs. Darling felt the same sort of grievance, for her Genevieve had made such n muss about the house with her photographs and things, and now she hardly ever takes her camera out. Indeed, Genevieve has had four hobbies since she took up with the camera —there was noising pansies, and hand-painted china, and the for eign missions, and now it’s dancing. The Darlings never mention the cost of anything; but such shifting and rest lessness is very distracting. Another mother observed that after all we have to expect to do a great deal for our children, but she did fear that her son was frittering away altogether too much time in ways that would prove to be unprofitable. He gave up collecting stamps when his album was far from full, and there it was, after all that work, doing nobody any good. And it was the same way with his wireless telegraph. They had had so much trouble gettmg a per mit for the masts, and he had worked so hard studying the codes until he was able to pick up all sorts of curi ous and interesting messages (the mother could not conceal her pride be hind her complaints), and now’ all was abandoned since he met that North boy, who interested him in ants! What all this would lead to goodness only knew, and she was patient enough, goodness also knew. And Mr. Burrowes, who dreaded the water, felt the same way about it; for had not his son dabbled about in a dozen —yes, a score—of useless hob bies, only to turn around suddenly with his mind made up to enter the Naval academy next year, when he would be old enough? As if there were not a hundred excellent things to do on the solid earth! And he pro ceeded to enumerate some of them, though he stopped long before he reached ten. But the fathers and mothers in the party worried together more than they had a right to. Or at least, if '' rf Cl ( I And Now It's Dancing. they were entitled to all that worry they won led in the wrong direction. The young people, if they are fairly healthy, and If they are fairly free to find out about what’s going on in the world, and if they are fairly free to go in for things 'that do not bring in money—or especially if they have a chance to go in for things that cost money—are quite sure to take up HONOR ACCORDED TO GREEKS Believed to Have Been the First Peo ple to Introduce Written Alma nacs to the World. The first written almanacs probably were complied by the Greeks of Alex andria between 100 and 150 A. D. Cal endars are much older, the ancient Ro mans having proclaimed the first of the month *nnd posted a notice of its oc currence in a public place. The first of the month thus came to be called The Kalends, from “1 call” or “I pro claim.” and thus the world “calendar” was derived. Probably the oldest calendar In ex istence was found in the ruin§ of Pom peii. It was cut upon a square block of marble, upon each side of which three months are registered, each head ed by the proper sign of the zodiac. The first almanac prin in Europe covered the years 1475. Mu-1 and 151‘! and was published at Budii. Hungary. The first printed almanac in England was the “Sheapheards Kalender.” printed in 14117. In the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries almanacs became one absorbing hobby after another. It is just because there are so many ex* cel lent things to do on the solid earth —and in the air, and in the water, too —that they need several years to find out which they would rather do. And apparently the only way to find out is by trying the feel of them aIL Of course, this Is rather expensive, because the things with which they clutter up the house are never used up entirely, and they form a worth less collection of junk to mark the me anderings of the adolescent mind. But the most serious concern is not the cost in money, for where the money is not to be had we find the same ten dency to jump from one interest to another. The fear of adults Is always that the growing girl or boy will be come a dabbler, a “rolling stone,” an unsettled wanderer without -definite purpose or goal. And it must be ad mitted that once in so often a person reaches years of maturity without hav ing found a guiding aim in life. For the adolescents In general, how ever, this rapid shifting of interest seems to be the normal manifestation of the rapid development going on within the organism. The changes in the nervous system bring forth a mul titude of new interest* and new im pulses, which simply cannot all find expression at the same time and which crowd upon each other in such fash ion that now one and now another breaks to the surface in quick succes sion. To people of comparatively fixed habits and conventionalized standards these fickle ways are not only annoy ing but often even alarming. Those of us who cannot remember the goldet days when we wavered between tin operatic stage and a lonely island tb the South sea, or between saving tin world from selfishness and sin and be coming the chief of a band of brigands simply cannot understand this fickle k * Became Interested in Ants. ness. It does seem so inconsistent, so unreasonable; and what will it all lead to? The adolescent years are those in which The child feels that he can do anything that older human beings can do; and. in truth, no one has yet found the limits of what he can do. The rapid growth in physical and mental strength gives rise to the feeling of unlimited growth; and past perform ances quickly lose their interest with the advent of new powers. AH the possibilities of the child come to the front, and it is only as these are tried out that the most profitable lines of development can be discovered. The danger for most children dur ing this period of growth and impres sion is not in the dissipation through contact with too many lines of inter est, but in the lack of opportunity to try out enough to give a broad sym pathy in sentiment, a wide outlook in intellect and a wise choice of perma nent interest. Let the children dabble while the dabbling is good; soon it will be too late. A Pair of Tricksters. They were on leave from the front, and they had dined well and wined well, and finished at a theater. Outside they separated, and the leader of the party was lucky enough to secure a taxi. Half way home, however, he discovered, on putting his hand in his pocket, that he was penni less. What was to be done! The British army is never at a loss, and in a few- moments he saw a way out. He caught up the speaking tube and shouted “Stop!” Then, jumping out, he told the driver to wait. “I just want to pop into this tobac conist’s to get a box of matches. I’ve dropped a sovereign on the floor of the cab and I can't find it in the dark.” He entered the tobacconist’s and the moment he was through the door the driver and the cab softly and sud denly vanished into the night, as he had anticipated.—Exchange.

If expenditure of money is any test, America can certainly claim the credit of being a musical country. Accord ing to an estimate compiled some time ago by an expert, the United States spends no less than $120,000,000 on music every year. This is three times as much as the same country spends on its army and navy; while “musical Germany,” it is pointed out, spends ten times as much on Its army and navy as on its music. In the American total, church music accounts for $10,000,000 a year.
