com
White River Junction, Aug. 28.
Three young White River Junction lads
of the bolsheviki tendency got an idea
that'the world owed them a living and
started to get it. They stole a ride on
the Woodstock railroad up as far as
Dewey's Mills, There they alighted and
started out to-see what they could find.
The first thing that caught their eye
was a bottle of milk on F. M. Richard
son's piazza. This they took and con
turned. James F. Dewev and Bill Banagan j
had been put wine that there were ju
venile robhers in town, and so they
were awaiting for them at the corner,
near the brick house, and, unknown to
the boys, these two men followed them
around, thinking that they might try
to break in the clubhouse and, sure
enough, the boys made a bee line for
this place, and when the men reached
it the two boys were on the inside with
a picket posted on the outside. The
alarm was given to those on the inside
and the three made their getaway into
the woods. Mr. Dewey left in his car
for White River Junction and left Ban
agan to watch and, in a short time, the
boys came out and made their way
back toward the junction. Banagan
telephoned, and Mr. Dewey, the chief
f police, and Countable Oaks and the
boys met on the Fogg crossing and
the boys were placed under, arrest and
lodged in the lockup at White River
Junction.

26 Habits and Training (Continued)
Crying A fluid mav be taueht to
cry wnen lie is only a few days old.
He likes to be held and rocked. When
he is put down he orio and so he is
taken up and carried. He soon learns
that if he will only cry hard enough
someone win come and get him.
A child needs a short period of erv
ing every day to develop his lungs, but
the habit of crying to be rocked, or
wtienever denied anything should be
corrected promptly. A baby can be
broken successfully of this habit. bv
letting him cry it out. Once or twice
will suffice.
Learning to Walk The average child
begins to want to stand at about the
tenth month and to walk from the
twelfth to the fourteenth. Earlier ef
forts at standing and walking should
not be encouraged. A child never should
be urged to stand and walk, especially
if he is heavy. He w ill want to stand
and walk of his own accord so soon
as the little legs are strong enough to
bear his weight.
Learning to Talk A child learns to
talk by hearing older people and other
children speaking. At first, speech to
him is but a jumble of sounds as a
foreign language is to us. Later, he
begins t learn that certain sounds
mean certain people or things
movements.
It is very necessary that he should
hear these words and sounds correctly
spoken and that when he begins to
talg he should hear correct English. Do
not use the no-called "baby talk" in
speaking to a child. Otherwise he will
learn it and other improper methods
of speech, only to have to unlearn
them later with much effort.
Toys Since a baby wants to put ev
erything in his mouth, his toys must be
those that can be used safely in this
way. They should be washable and
should have no sharp points or corners
to hurt the eves. Painted articles, or
hairy and woolv toys, also tovs hav
ing loose parts such a balls or ob
jects small enough to be swallowed are
unsafe and should never be given a
small child.
A baby should never have too manv
toys at one time. A handful of clothes

Moral Training A little child does
nt know right from wrong until he is
taught by older persons. He follows
his own fancy and. lets his little hands
and feet do mischief, not knowing
that he is doing anything which will
cause others or himself to come to
grief. For this reason, older persons
must be ready to guide the baby and
teach him the right method of behavior.
But , that does not mean that he
should lie forbidden continually to do
this or that or the other. A child
should have, from his verv earlv infan
I cy, the opportunity of choosing to do
things himself. If he is not allowed
to no tnis. ne wont know how to
reason and choose for himself when l e
grows older and is obliged to do it.
On, the other hand, it is necessary
for a child to learn obedience, and a
wise mother will train her child to
obey; not however, to obey a com
mand "because 1 told you to do it."
but to obey Iwcau it is a pleasure to
do it.
Harsh treatment or punishment ha
no place in the yroper upbringing of
the baby. If a baby's inclinations
lead him in the wrongg direction, Mtine
one must lie at hand to guide him into
another and lietter one and to turn
in eager interest ami his energy to
ward something that will amuse but
not harm him. Thi is the golden rule
for the training of babies and one
which applies to the training of rhil
dren of all ages.
Usually there is some reason for the

On the other hand, babies who are fed

therefore are "good."

uying the Seen
and the Unseen
It is easy to judge the size and quality of a
visible commodity. There are certain rec
ognized standards that have been universally
accepted to which purchased articles may be
compared.
With invisible commodities, such as a pub
lication's circulation, the matter is not so sim
ple. It is only recently that a definite meas
urement has been obtained.
The A. B. C. now furnishes a recognized
standard by which circulation may be meas
ured. A publication's distribution can now
be as accurately gauged as any other pur
chased commodity.
The BARRE DAILY TIMES' circulation
is measured by the A. B. C. In buying adver
tising space in its columns, you receive dol-lar-for-dollar
value.
