Twenty Years After Br REGINALD D. HAVEN One day 1 went up Into the garret to Bud something 1 needed. While rum maging over old trunUs ond old buses I found a trunk that was marked "Family Documents." Curious to learn If I had stumbled on anything valuable, I opened it and spent some time ex amining Its contents. . While overhauling a lot of old papers I came across two batches of letters bound together with a ribboa that had once been pink, but had now faded to no particular color, and tied In a bow knot. I knew by the knot that a wo man had done the Job aud. by a fnlut perfume that hung about them, that a part of the bundle at least had be longed to a woman. I loosened the packages and saw that they were without envelopes, probably sacrificed to reduce bulk. Those in one package had been written in a wo man's hand, those in the other In a man's band. 1 opened one of the lat ter and read a dozen lines. "That's the worst love twaddle I ever read In my life." I said to myself. "1 wonder what Idiot wrote It" Taking up one from the other pack age. I read some of it and wondered that any young woman could be so In fatuated with a man as to write such silly stuff. Tbe letters had evidently passed between a couple many years before, for the paper was tinged with yellow, and tbe ink in some instances had faded. Wondering which of my progenitors hr.d written tliem. I ex amined the signature of one of the superfine package and saw that It was .signed "Your loving Ethel." , ' My wife's name beiug Etbel. I look ed more carefully at the handwriting and noticed for the first time that H was quite like Ethel's Indeed, It was Ethel's handwriting with twenty years' change attached. 1 dropped It took up one of the other lot and discovered that It was my owu penmanship at nineteen. I felt the hot blood mounting to tny cheek. Could It be possible that 1 bad written that sickening stuff? And Ethel she must have have been de mented. When I had somewhat recovered from my surprise and abasement the Idea occurred to uie to Inflict one of those old love letters of mine upon my wife. 1 wished to see how she would take me on paper ns I was two decades . agoue. Our oldest son was now about the age I was when I wrote the letters, and incidentally 1 thought he might be doing the same thing. Also quite llkoly onr oldest daughter was or soon would be encumbering the malls with what tbe in time would be quite nslijrrned of. I selected one of the most lovesick f my letters and one of a near subse quent date of Ethel s. These I put In my pocket to be kept till she. should go Into the couutry with the.culldreu.

This may i. iv hut the fact remains that, in the majority of cases, good table manners ni tl' ciuia are seeureu oniy at price of eternal vigilance. Kxaniple, of course, ia 'most valuable oy impressing on the child how he should behave, how be made to handle his knife, fork and spoon, as well as various foods, hut example Js not suffi cient. It is natural for us all to do a tiling in the easiest way, and so if the lin gers will convey the food more quickly to the hungry child's mouth, why should he be blamed for the tendency? It is for the mother to correct and show the reason for her way being tlie better way. It is a delight to sit at the table with children who are mannerly; on the other hand, there are few experiences more distressing than to have to eat at a table where there are children who have not been trained to behave themselves there. - There is really a great deal for the mother to do if she would have her child's presence at the table a joy. In the first place she cannot begin too soon to teach hiin how to handle a cup and spoon. ... If the child knows at the outset that the cup is to be held -by- tlie handle, as soon as the chubby little fingers are strong enough to grasp it, he will do it the right way. Once he h-arns this you will not fear lest he will gras.p it awkwardly. As soon as the child is able to ue a cop, have him sit at a table and see that his cup. plate and spoon are placed in the correct position; he grows accus tomed to the way they should be and will place them io himself in a short time, says the Newark News. Tench him in drinking not to tilt the cup or glass so that his lips are moist ened; tilt it only to drink. The cup is used only for the purpose of taking liquid into the mouth, fallow him tlie rim of his glass or cup and have him strive to have the rim of his cup only wet. not di-rigured half an inch or more down from the tup. There arc food pushers to -day. simple contrivance of silver; but even letter than these, i the tiny crust of bread. Show the child that hen the food is difficult to pet on to the fork or poon a pusher, never the fingers is ued. In handling the fork, just as in han dling the spoon or knife, have the child take hokl at tiw end of the handle, not balfaav down. To do thia ucce fully, aee that the handle are th- right length. When he bus finished bis meal tra-h the small child to fold hi bib and leave it in the pnq-r place: this for tao r a-ons-t Uach manner and orderliness a well.
