Dr. One started down
the river in hia canvas covered
skiff Sunday, bound for New
Orleans, which place ho expects
to roach about January 1. When
asked how he would come north
again he replied that they in
tended to walk. In proof of
their ability as pedestrians he
said that he and his wife, who
is CO years old, walked from
Denver, Colo., to Omaha, Neb.,
in just one month. "And I'm
the poorest walker of the two,"
he added.
"Our mission here," said Dr.
Orne. "is to inquire into the
conditions of children, to inspect
charitable and corrective institu

Orne says that he originated

"I am not a reformer in the
usually accepted meaning of that
word," Dr. Orne said. "lam
an investigator who lays before
th? public the results of the in
vestigations. The reformer can
accomplish nothing, all reforms
must come from the people. I
aim to lay before each commu

tions, with suggestions as to
what my experience has taught
me are the proper methods of
dealing with the problems in
each community."
During more than a quarter
century dealing with deficient
and delinquent children, a ma
jority of whom had gone wrong,
I am convinced, beyond perad
venture, that their fall is due
directly to the failure of parents
two fundamental duties they
owe to their offspring.
First, that parents should at
all times, from earliest child
hood, have that priceless posses
sion, the genuine confidence of
their child; a confidence which
will cause the child not merely
to obey, but also to trust and to
feel implicitly that the parent
is all times and under all circum
stances the best friend, the most
constant companion and the
wise.it and most willing coun
selor. Second, that, in order to earn
and to deserve his confidence,
parents must be frank in re
sponding to the natural inquiries
of their child; yea, more, they
must divine the unspoken ques
tion at the right time, and
answer it clearly and in a man
ner that will invite further
questions as the child develops
into manhood and womanhood.
I know the difficulties involved
in th:3. even for the more intel
ligent an! educated parents. But
I know only too well that too
many parents live in a fools'
ptrdine of belief that their
f i!;nce rpell ignorance- t:nl
innocence on the part of thtj
children. j
It cannot be too emphatically j
repeated that every child minsr-j
ling witncUicr cmM'f n, woollier j
mi private or m puMic school,
is going to k-arn much even at
the age of 10, and, in circles in
which children are not carefully
guarded, even aa early as seven.
The words picked up. the
thoughts awakened, arouse the
inquiring mind. If the silent
inquiry be felt and responded to
by the p irent3 a relation is es
tablished which, developed by
mutual confidences, throws a
protecting mantle over the little
one that in many cases will
guard it for life. If the spoken
or unspoken query be avoided or
checked the first barrier is raised,
which, followed by the conven
tional story, easily and quickly
discovered to be untrue, destroys
mutual confidence between par
ents and children, which is the
missing link of today.
A mother disregarded some
rumors that came to her about
her 11-year-old daughter. She
pooh-poohed them, declaring that
she knew her child, and that the
child's "innocence" and ignor
ance were absolute protection to
her. The mother's discovery of
her mistake was something
heartbreaking to witness.
Harry Thaw is one of my neg
lected boys, and the Pullrrfti
boys, both of whom I knew per
sonally, and often insisted upon
their father giving them a trade,
their mother J'avorirsr them
j drinking wine and stating that
they were to l3 society gentle
men. Two years after Mr. Pull
man's death they both died
Now, what is the lesson to be
derived from these and many
like experiences? As I said be
fore, one can never be sure that
knowledge of the physical con
sequences will be complete pro
tection to a girl. But that knowl
edge she should possess, and
possess early as a first covering.
While knowledge alone, without
character, will never save, the
fear of consequences will oft
times brace up a weak girl to
resist to the uttermost.
Some wise teachers have been
able to impart much, valuable in
formation in the regular course
in physiology and hyge.ne to high
school classes as a normal and
natural part of the course with
out any undue emphasis. The
task, however, is an extremely
delicate one, and, except in the
hands of the wisest and most
experienced, is apt to be full of
Is the poor girl to blame? So
ciety itself, not fully awakened
to its obligation, is responsible.
To condemn and to destroy the
bad is not enough; it must be
replaced by the positive good; a
real preparation for life, includ
ing an industrial education and
the knowledge of herself, for
the school girl; and the oppor
tunities for healthful and pleas
urable recreation, under decent
influences and auspices, for
If a mother begins talking
with her daughter on these sub
jects at an early age, she will
invite her confidence in all such
matters as she grows older. The
girl who can go to her mother
for such information, feeling
that she will be heard with sym
pathy and will be given an intel
ligent reply, is much more likely
to follow her mother's advice in
matters pertaining to these and
kindred subjects.

been requested to lambast the
foreign dealer by men who did
not carry a line of advertising in
our paper and never did fre

pay to advertise. In acknowl
edging that mail order houses
are making inroads into the ter

towns is evidence that -ADVERTISING
DOES PAY, and be

due we are frank to say that the
catalog houses will eventually
control the merchandise interests
of this country unless modern
methods are employed to offset
tneir trade. The public depends
on newspapers to supply them
with information as the latest
goods out. They can and do
look at the advertisements of
catalog houses at their homes,
which show cuts of the good3,
description, price, etc., and buy
the goods and have them deliv
ered at their door with little
trouble. .Doe3 it appear reason
