these nctnilies? The national government, of course, both in the United

Scores of material intercuts in which women cannot by nature take an
active, part. ,
Jhit (hero arc other questions, questions of an educational nature, and
on'tll&o'l lwlicvc women should bo permitted to vole. Tho schools, the
hoqpitnl,, the charities to mention the most obvious of n city or a na
tion are in tho control of the government, and yet women have just as
much of a responsible interest in these matter as men. It would seem to
bejbut just, tlftrefore, thai they should be allowed to vole on them. In
London, happily, within the past two years women have gained thn right
to vote on tho county councils.
"Woman's sphere should not bo limited more than the physical limita
tion imposed by nature. I believe in women entering as many fields of
activity as 6ho profitably can. 1 Ier first sphere of activity, of course, is tbe
fumily, the home. But where that is denied her, why should 6ho not turn
her attention to other duties, duties that in the old "hearth and home"
days were suppocd to belong exclusively to men, and thus play her part
in the world's work?

command. Tbo people are accustomed to
obey without questioning, and this custom is icilccied in the relations of
jnircnts and children.
In this country een tbe latest comers fcceiu to divine that here is a
place where one may ask questions and whero certain kinds of commands
iiro obeyed only for reasons explained. That spirit, wo may be sure, can bo
.carried too far, but it is essentially what wo learn to associate with de
mocracy. The government is the people's; everybody is a part of the
government and nobody is tho wholo of it.
It seems to me that the child, being mora impressionable and more
'receptive limn tho adult, having a more lively imagination and n, lesser
willingness Jo endure restraint, would reilcct in its ideas and conduct this
Bpirit of democratic independence. The parent also must feel tho quick
ening, melting inllucnco of tho doctrines of equality and freedom, and the
spirit of authority naturally sutlera in consequence.
It is true that many parents are ovcrindulgcnt and that many chil
dren show the effects of indulgence who would be without fault if subject
ed to even moderate restraint and control.
Education of the parent is ery important as an influence to rely
upon for correction of this condition. Discipline of tho child ought to bo
more systematic, and 1 agree with Dr. G. Stanley Hall's statement to
the extent that 1 think a gieal deal of time and labor is wasted in trying
to atfect by moral suasion children who could bo almost immediately and
permanently set straight by a good whipping.
, Love unci fear are two powerful sentiments. They are invoked con
stantly by, nature, neer singly, and quite universally in combination, to
correct and direct her maimer children,
and it is important that the combination . 1
should be emplouHl judiciously in the 7 JLctC

don't know u girl who helps her mother in any way, nor do I know any
mothers who help their daughters to bo anything but helpless butterflies.
Where has it all gone this homo life? Where is the old-fashioned
mother who used to have her daughter's confidence; who knew tho young
men her daughter danced with; who saw the books her daughter read, and
who selected tho plays her daughter could gc without harm? But, then,
where arc the old-fashioned husbands and wives whose interests and
pleasures were identical?
Now we have women's clubs just like tho men have where women
may swim and eat and drink cocktails and bat around privately just a3
men do publicly, and you may take your daughters tbcro afternoons for
tea and hear tho gossip of tho day. Isn't it nice to prorido theso sub
