The education of young girls should prepare them for the greatest work in the world—wifehood and motherhood, and I wish they could all have courses in home-nursing, domestic science and kindergarten training. My training as a kindergartner taught me many things, among them keeping strictly to a schedule; so my baby was fed, bathed and put to bed regularly. Habit is formed early in life, and can help to make or mar character, depending on whether habits are good or bad. This carry ing out of a regular schedule was not always easy, for it meant sacri fice of many pleasures. But 1 wanted to be a good mother first of all, and I was rewarded by having a happy, good baby. Even now at six years old there is no fuss at nap time or bedtime. One of the things taught un consciously in the kindergarten is reg ularity and promptness, and these can be taught in the home just as well. Long before baby could talk she knew the little play for the fingers, "Here's a ball for baby." Here's a ball for Baby, Big and soft and round! Here is Baby's hammer— O, how he can pound! Here's a Baby's music— Clapping, clapping so! Here are Baby's soldiers, Standing in a row! Here's Baby's trumpet, Toot-too-too. Too-too!

ISABEL S. WALLACE. Here's th e way that Baby Plays at "Peek-a- boo!" Here's a big umbrella— Keep the Baby dry! Here's the Baby's cradle— Rock-a-baby by! — Emilie Paulsson. The ball is made with the two hands rounded together; the hammer by doubled up, one in front of the other ope on top of the other. Baby's sol diers are made by holding all the fingers up straight. The hands are clapped together for the music, and doubeld up, one in front of the other for a trumpet. For peekaboo the fingers are spread in front of the eyes so that baby can see between them. The umbrella is made by plac ing the palm of the hand on the index finger of the other, and the cradle by putting the two hands to gether, insides of the palms touching and outer sides open. ' As I said the words of this little play and made the motions, baby would try to make the motions, too. She also knew "Five Little Squirrels." "Good Mother Hen," and "Little Squirrel Living Here." Of course, she could not play them perfectly, but she lo-ved them and wanted me to play them for her over and over. Baby also loved music and even when very tiny would stop crying to listen to soft music. She has always loved stories also. First we took up "Mother Goose Rhymes." I would repeat them over and over to baby as I sat sewing and she played on the floor, and before she was two years old she knew a great many of them. She also knew the words of .several little songs, such as "Rock-a-bye Baby." It was enchanting to hear her say them in her sweet baby way. I never actually taught her the songs, however, simply singing them over and over again. Babv played with two other little girls from the age of three until ovef four. One was younger and the other cider than she.' The two little girls did not have much home training, as their mother was a society woman and left th* 1 children to the care of a maid They almost lived at our house. AVhen the children grew quar relsome. I usually suggested a partv. The little tabl e and chairs were gavly set on the phzza. weather permitting, and milk, graham biscuits and dates were served or grape juice and arrow root biscuit. Sometimes an apple or an orange was carefully prepare«! for the occasion. Such a party always stopped the quarreling. Sittine d"wn rested them and eating ouieted them. Then after thev had finished T left my work and told them a story. Oh. how eaccer their little faces were! One dav. the vouneer visitor, who was spoiled and selfish and conse quently quarrelsome, was making things unpleasant for the other two I entered th* room and ouietlv took her on mv lap. She knew she had been nauehty and was n Jittl", afraid of me and also curious as to what vin eoing to happen. The other two chil dren watched with awe and wond"r on their little faces Verv ouietlv Î told a story mv (rrandfattmr i««f>d to tell me about "Naughty Spotty." It made a great impression rn them •!! and, as T had forseen. it was not necessary to say one word of direct censure to the naughty child. Both of our little visitors were storv bungrv. Their mo ( h?r said she could not tell stories. By readinc a story over several times and getting its meaning and spirit, anvone can tell a story. Don't be afraid to nut expression into vour voice and face. \ T o stories should be told wty'ch mav frighten a child. The children mav dream about them or lie awake in fear: such stories also make them afraid in the dark. Then there are pictures. Good pictures and picture books are verv necessary for children. One or two pictures th*t are worth whHe ar" bet ter than many poor ones. Since baby hood my little girl has known and loved pictures She learned nearly all of the animals in that way. She has also learned how to handle a valuable bcok and now she can be trusted to go to th e bookcase and take out and replace a book after looking at the pictures, and asking about them. Good pictures are an education to all children and they love them. Tn kindergarten children plav with blocks, among other things, at first with the simplest kind, then with more complicated and larger sets. They are directed and taught how and what to build, and it trains the eyes and hands, teaching accuracy and construction. At home most chil dren have blocks and can build on the floor and love to build for hours. My husband builds castles and all kinds of wonderful houses with our little girl, nnd in this way the build ing becomes more and more Instruc tive and worth while. Crayons have plaved a large part in our daugher's life. She loves to draw and can really draw well. T have drawn simple things for her and she tries to copy them. She also tries to draw what she sees and thus in these two ways she is acquiring an other medium of self-expression.
