Amer ican Queen. Synonyms to Tlfiisfi ftnontn. A "synonymous" entertainment Is one of the best means ever tried for setting one's guests acquainted and for removing nil stiffness and formal ity. Before the arrival of her guests the hostess must make out a complete list of their names and then must set her wits to work to devise a synonym for each. Xo attempt is made at se lecting literal synonyms for the wcrd or its parts as spelled. A few names from a list recently rTir.de out will at least prove suggest ive, and will give a better Idea of the method of carrying out the plan than would many words of description: " Synonyms Names. .With noise of trumpet and drum..

These souvenirs may bo as plain or as elab orate as the hostess chooses to make them. A piece of paper with tlie name written upon it serves the purpose as well as a hand-painted or a silver mounted affair. At any time the hostess chooses slips of paper, each of which contains the synonym of a name, are passed to the guests. They are told to try to find the names which they represent. Another plan is to have a complete list of the synonyms made out for each guest, and then each one must keep his own counsel and fill in as many of the names as possible. There are various ways in which the list may be put to account in furnish ing a part of an evening's entertain ment, a net hostesses will be able to adjust it to suit their particular pur pose if tlny study its possibilities.

Curtis Guild, Jr. HE "spellbinder" made his appearance coincidenlly with the "dude," in the early eighties. At least the names arose at about that time. The two types of men have existed since the first spellbinder persuaded his brother troglodytes to form the first tribal government and the first dude distinguished himself from his fellows by scraping the sea-mud from his hairy limbs before gulping down the mollusks whose high-heaped shells were to be the kitchen middens of the archaeologist. The young Republicans who went forth converted, to Democracy in the Blaine campaign, and with the zeal of new converts held their audiences "spellbound" as they wove ehaplets of rhetorical flowers about the head of the Democratic candidate, were the first spellbinders, I think, to wear the title. It was swiftly adopted, however, indiscriminately for all political speakers. The spellbinders of 1S04, rightly or wrongly, at least left their par!y for conscience's sake and gave their services to their cause. Even to-day a majority of political speakers are absolutely unpaid. Of course, one hears stories of fees of $10,0H) paid to a noted Democrat for campaign services against Mr. Bryan in 1S00, and of fees of J?n00 a night paid to a noted Independent who op posed Mr. Harrison. In addition, however, to Congressmen and Senators, and State and local otKce-holders who give their services, there are hundreds of speakers of various political faiths; who neither hold nor expect to hold public office, who would regard the offer of payment for a political speech as an in sult. Nevertheless, the spellbinder must get wiiat cpmfort he can from the friumph of his cause, for the world will not credit him with disinterestedness, and his best friends (out of politics) think him hired. The orator of an earlier generation has had his day. The modern spell binder, like the man of business, the soldier, the Salvation Army evangelist, concerns himself more with results than conventional methods, with matte: rather than form, Seribncr's. pltasize Children's By Margaret Stowe. HE more parents learn is their power of self-control r.nd the ability to mould their characters. If a mother has wisdom enough, patience enough, and love enough she can perforin miracles. She can keep down in her child tendencies that have the strength of lions and encourage germs of virtue almost too feeble to come to the light. It is a common fault among parents to dwell too much upon the faults of their children and too little upon their virtues. They seem to be wholly forgetful of their own sensitiQiess to public cen sure. A child that is constantly found fault with loses courage and wonders If there is any rise in trying to be good, then soon returns to utter indifference. He might as well have a good time in his own wa0 since he is considered thoughtless and selfish, anyhow. On the other hand, let a mother try to remember the good things he has done or said during the day, even though it may be only one, and when he comes to her at night for a little talk or his prayers, tell him how pleased you were to notice them, how happy they have made you, and you can feel sure that he will always remember to go on doing what Is right, first because it is right and then because it pleases you and makes ycu very proud of him. Watch his face glow with pleasure at your praise and his eyes reflect the determination to try harder than ever to win your approbation. I have seen a child's whole nature change and develop for the better under this treatment. It stands to reason that if you dwell upon the faults of children you will only impress them all the deeper upon their consciousness, making it harder for them to conquer them. A fault can be put out of the mind easier and more successfully not by dwelling upon it, but by attempting to put it out. Indirectly by filling the mind with encouraging thought. Children need encouragement as far as reforming goes. Look only for the good, and when you find it emphasize it so that they may have an incentive for trying all the harder. X child is easily wounded with a sense of its fail ures, and mothers should make the effort to inspire and cheer them. Always send your children to bed in a happy frame of mind. Even in their sleep that impression is retained, and they awake in the morning ready and eager to do their best. ' Not long ago I read of a beautiful Idea. Parents would do well to put it into practice. The thought was this: Singing, which is one of the most beneficial and exhilarating pastimes for children, is not sufficiently indulged in. It is singularly difficult to induce children iu Sunday-school to sing out freely, and when there are strangers present the littls ones are almost sure to be seized with a shyness that makes them dumb. Much of this shyness would be overcome if in the family there was a prac tice of singing together in the evening. Fianos are everyw here, and almost all mothers can play enough ' o manage a few simple melodies.
