PARA DALTON'S 77/ Tell Papa, ' Said Sonny What Grandmother Did Then Was a Sufficiency—A Little Talk on Boy Management by Cynthia Gray. Father was a commercial traveler and seldom at home. Conse- Sently his 8-year-old son was to him the most marvelous boy he'd sr- seen. He couldn't understand how HE, with all his shortcom ts, ever had the luck to be "father" to a boy like his. When mother saw fit to chide this prodigy, father was horrified. Of course, MOTHER knew just how vexatious sonny could be occa sionally during the days that father was away, but father only knew him at his best. Mother had a sneaking belief that she wasn't firm enough with her small boy, but It was easier to drift —and so it vent on. To sonny, father was a never-falling sourse of interest. What wonderful tales of the big world he could tell! And then, too, father appreciated HIM! So sonny WAS an "angel child" while he was be ing so delightfully entertained. What child wouldn't be? Well, sonny soon discovered that father didn't approve when -*Jther scolded, and he was cunning enough to make the best of It— ■p* he 111 17 hate to be corrected! So he laid for mother and the next unie she rebuked him he astounded her by whimpering, "I'll tell papa on you!" Mother immediately surrenedered and smothered the youngster with caresses, saying to herself, "Maybe I AM too severe With the child." This trump card he used more and more often with tellingeffect On mother, but his day of reckoning came. After grandmother, papa's mother, had overheard it a time or two she was so disgusted that she calmly luld the youngster over her knee one day and administered • thorough and complete spanking. "There!" she exclaimed. "Tell your papa that his mother gave you just what you deserved!" To mother, she said, for her blood was up: "You are really to blame, daughter, for you should have settled him the very first time he threatened to tattle. Boys are really naturally chivalrous, and that trait is a good foundation to work on. Children are so easily spoiled. If you would just make sonny feel that he Is your protect or—that he is the man of the house while father is away—it would be the making of him. Appeal to his. latent sense of responsibility, talk with him, reason with him, and I'll wager he'll not threaten you again. On the contrary he'll soon be telling the children what a dan dy chum mother is and how he is taking care of her. I know, for I've lived long enough to be sure of where I stand. Try it, you'll find I'm right. And wasn't grandmother right? I'm sure of It. The sooner the facility for doing things and the accompanying sense of responsibility for the doing are taught children the more firmly will a love of the duties become a part of their characters. THE DANGER TRAIL Copyright 1910, The Bobbs-Merrlll Company. JAMES OLIVER CURWOOD (Continued.) CHAPTER VII. The Blowing of the Coyote. In the new excitement that pul sated with every fiber of his being, Howland forgot his own danger, forgot his old caution and the fears that gave birth to it, forgot every thing in these moments but Me leese and his own great happiness. For he was happy, happier than he had ever been in his life, happier than he bad ever expected to be. He was conscious of no madness Jn his strange, new joy that swept through his being like a fire; he did not stop to weigh with himself the unreasoning Impulses that, filled him. He had held Meleeae in his arms, he had told her of his love, and though she had accepted it with gentle unresponsiveness he' •was thrilled by the memory of that | last look in her eyes, which had spoken faith, confidence, and per haps even more. And his faith in her had become as limitless as the blue space above him. He had known her for but a few hours and yet in that time it seemed to him that he had lived longer than in nil Of the years that had gone before. She had lied to him, had divulged only a pari of her Identity—and yet he knew that there were reas ons for these things. Tomorrow night ho would see her again, and then— What would she tell him? What ever it was, it was to be a reward for his own love He knew that, by the half-fearing tremblo of her voice, the sobbing* catch of her breath, the soft glow in her eyes. Impelled by that love, would she confide in him? And then—would he go back into the south? H* laughed, softly, joyfully. Yes, he would go bnck Into the south—he would go to the other end of the earth, if she would go with him. What was tl>e building of this railroad now to that other great thing that had come Into his life?

THE PLACE OF QUALITY The Modern Dentists Temple Court Building Riverside and Washington. duty In another light. There were others who could build the road; success, fortune, ambition —in the old way he had seen them —were overshadowed now by this love ot a girl. He stopped and lighted his pipe. The fragrant odor of the tobacco, the flavor of the warm smoke In his mouth, helped to readjust him, to cool his heated brain. The old fighting instincts leaped Into life again. Go into the south? He asked himself the question once more, and in the gloomy silence of the forest his low laugh fell again as he clenched his hands in anticipation of what was ahead of him. No —he would build the road! And in buildiug it he would win this girl, If it was given for him to possess her. His saner thought brought back his caution. He went more slowly toward the cabin, keeping in the deep shadows and stopping now and then to listen. At the edge of the clearing he paused for a long time. There was no sign of life about the cabin abandoned by Qregson and Tlioruo. It was prob able that, the two men who had passed along the path had returned to the cnmp by another trail, and still keeping as much within the shadows as possible he went to tbe door and entered. With his feet propped in front of the big box stove sat Jackpine. The Indian rose as Howland entered, and something In the sullen gloom of his face caused the young en gineer to eye htm questionlngly. "Any one been here, Jackpine?" The old sledge-driver gave his head a negative shake and hunched his shoulders, pointing at the same time to the table, on which lay a carefully folded piece of paper. "Thome," he grunted. Howland spread out the paper In the light of the lamp, and read: "My Dear Howland: "I forgot to tell you that our mail sledge starts for Le las to ALL ABOUT THE DOINGS OF TOUR SEX VERY INCONSIDERATE OF BABY i TO DIE DURING A BRIDGE PARTY JOHN DREW AND MAR V BOLAND IN "SMITH." NEW YORK, Oct. 25.—Her name was Smith—plain Smith. She was an English servant woman of tbe type that serves one mistress,! Iwth a service utterly whole-heart-j ed and unselfish, from the time she is old enough to work at all until she is too old to work any more—or gets married. The trouble with Smith was she was young and very pretty. But| she knew her place. So when Tom Freeman, the master's brother-in law, came back from a 10-year-stay | on his South African ranch and proposed marriage to Smith, the girl burst into tears and said she would have to give notice at once. She quoted cook's opinion, that it wasn't proper for a girl to stay in a house after one of the gentlemen had made love to her. j Smith thought Freeman was jok-| ing. Perhaps ho was, partially. He awnted a wife for his lonely ranch. Perhaps, when he looked at Smith's rosy health and strong body his thoughts unconsciously ran to cattle he bred. Anyhow he asked her, and she refused him cold and signified her intention of; giving notice. I But Smith didn't leave. For, Freemnn said no more of love or marriage. But he liked to have her wait on him so he could watch her. He found her re freaking after the jaded bride-fiends of women who gathered each day In the Ixmdon home of Fremuu's sister, Mrs. Dal las-Baker. Bridge was their passion and their religion. They hated any thing that interrupted the game. Frrynan's 10 years as a farmer madV him despise the triviality of London society life, and he was a very damp blanket at the bridge gatherings.

"Cabin in edge of woods," re plied the Indian. "How about breakfast? Thorne hasn't put me on to the grub line yet." "Thorne say you eat with heem in tuorniu'. I come early—wake you. After heem go—tomorrow— eat here." "You needn't wake me," said Howland, throwing off his coat. "I'l find Thorne —probably before he's up. Good night." Jackpine had half opened the door, and for a moment the en gineer caught a cllmpße of his dark, grinning fare looking back over his shoulder. He hesitated, as If about to speak, and then with a mouthful of his Inimitable chuckles, he went out. After bolting the door Howland lighted a small table lamp, entered the sleeping room and prepared for bed. "Got to have a little sleep no matter if thiugs arc going off like a Fourth of July celebration," he grumbled, and rolled between the sheets. In spite of ljls old habit of rising with the bTeflklng of dawn It was Jackpine who awakened him a few hours later. The camp was hardly astir when he followed the Indian down among the log cabins to Thome's Quarters. The senior en gineer was already dressed. "8011 y to hustle you so, How land.'' he greeted, "but I've got ot THE SPOKANE PRESS NEWS FOR women because her baby was sick, and sho had been persuaded to stay later and later —to finish Just one more rubber —It fell to Smith's lot to break the news to the bridge player that her baby was dead. And Smith's eyes streamed tears. It was a tragic interruption to the rubber. After Ihe speechless mother had left, as tbe other guests were talking In whispers, Smith still stood at the door wiping her eyes. "Oh. ma'am, isn't it dreadful?" she said. i "Go about your business, Smith," snapped Mrs. Dallas-Baker. The two months Freeman had al lotted himself for finding a wife were up. and the bridge women were taunting him for his failure. "It's true," he said, "the only woman I proposed to refused me." "Who was that?" they asked in unison. "Why, Smtih," he said. A servant! Mrs. Dallas-Baker rang the ball. Smith appeared, j "You're discharged," said her mistress. "Leave this house at I once." Freeman found her crying with the disgrace of being discharged. Her few pitiful things were packed. "You're going with me to Africa," be said. "lx>ok at me." She did, and she saw his eyes did not mock her now, but they drew her to him. and their Hps met. "And now," he demanded, shak ing her by the shoulders, "tell me what your blessed first name is." "Why," she whimpered, "it's Mary." ' 'And that's just what I wanted It to be!" shouted Tom Freeman. " Smith" is at the F.mplre the ater, nnd is one of the successful plays of the fall. W.

He knew Weston was the best "acci dent man" in the company's em play. "Yes —Weston," replied the sen ior, eyeing him sharply. "I don't mean to say he's not a good man, Howland," he amended quickly. "Hut he doesn't quite seem to take hold of this hurt of mine, ity the. way, I looked over our payroll anO* there is no Croisset on It."
