MOTHERS OF THEN AND NOW

The "popular" writer who bewail*
what be assumee to be the fact that
the "old-fashioned" mother Is no more
la liable to defeat his own purpose If
that b* inculcating In children the
highest possible regard for tbeir pa
rents. It Is a danger which even thé

The mother of the past, of course,
was different from the mother of the
present, as different on the whole as
the conditions of life then and now,
but since her daughter la the mother
of the present there must be some
points of similarity. All the good In
our mothers and grandmothers cer

will be paying scant tribute to those
dear, good women who have laid down
their recepts and examples and pass

writer doe* not mean to do that, yet
he comes very near doing what he
does not Intend.
The fallacy of the whole sentimen
