TomiK married people often quarrel.
"Ton lovo for threo months,' quarrel tor
tliifo yea.ru. live tog-etlier for thirty, and
then the children begin the same olr

tits art present quarrels itart leas easily.
They ai withheld and you know that
vfti If a. difference of oplnlorr that iu
Wp to yourself Is painful. It is far lees
! than nn open quarrel, because the ir
revoiubla words, unpardonable words,
hit vc- not been pronounced.
Touns married people always have a
l'ttlo to complain, one about tlu other.
They generally complain to their male or
female friends, reaper-lively. In most
enscs this Is very deplorable, for a friend
i more, apt to iour oil Into the flames
than to act as a peace-tin krr. 1 have
heard a mother complain to her n-ycar-ntd
son. which is even wnf'. Sho had to
complain, but this ulmoxt criminal.

Toil Much Happiness. -'tou.iig
collides are often Buffering fioni
ft satiety of happiness and the remedy of
this Is in the child, but it Is certainly also
in the giandparcnt. Solitude i deux In
happiness has Its drawback Uie too rlose
intimacy.. The . Intimacy Is ' fortunately
, broken by; the child, but more, fortunately
! mill by. the older people, w ho are not yet
, too old and w ith whom you can talk, ex
. change views and ideas, together with
, whom you have pleasures . which do. not
' enter into your relations with 'the child.
Crandfather and grandmother art like
liirhf conductors for the too close inti
macy which makes happiness monoto
nous.
Tonlradlct me once in a while that I
may feel that we are two," said an
.Orestes to a Pylades, who was too much
of an Achates. Generally young couples
contradict one another too much, but
soino times they do not contract enough
I In both cases advices are weclome. In
the first case they conciliate In the sec
ond they bring 'In varieties, in the first
case they establish harmony In the sec
ond they add a new instrument to the
.concert.
One feels that one is being watched,
certainly, : and the craving for independ-
em e crows when you feel that ou are
not autonomous, that you do not belong
tn ynurseli. "I his Is a heavy burden. I
lo not deny this. You always feel 4he
'tu'onven!cr.ce cf ft thing, the abaonce of
which yuu -would dtplort if it were not
the.c. sfucli Is the character of the human
heart. Hut everybody has his duties,
even grandparents, and it their children
have the duty of being respectful, the
grandparents have the duty of being dis
crete. They must preserve moderation
and give to the children a certain amount
of autonomy In time and space. They nra
councillors, confidential advisers, pro
tectors and preservers, but must often
be content with being witnesses. A
really wise man is a man who knows a
well when to be absent as when to be
present, when to shut his eyes aa well a
when to open them.
Surveillance at Uooil Thlna.
The art of I'fo cons'sle partially in
knowing how to plRce yourself In a re
lation to clrcunntancos which In a gen
eral way force us to be what we want to
be and prevent us from doing what wc
ccldentally much 'wish to do. In a gen.
eral way you may feel a desire to be
unfaithful to your wife or to your hus
band. It. is in' this Utter cane, that the
surveillance by older people Is disagree
able tu us. You muft then lmiiHxllely
tell yourself that the day will ronieAvhen
ou will he huppy to linvo done, with
a little help, that which harmonizes with
your general -tendency and will, though
you would willingly have listened to your
first accidental Impulse, and you will
congratulate yo.ire'f because of the ob
staeln that came In the way of your
uccldental desire. Although I have some
sympathy with tho wife who Is unfaith
ful to her husband because of the road
Inf.ttuatlon of a moment and who lo,ves
her huMiund no less for that. I do not
adlvxe those who ate Inclined towards
unfaithfulness to consider that even the
dream of unfalthfulnens leaves no pleas
ant memories behind. As there Is nothing
more exquisite about love than the dream
of it and the memories It leaves behind.
It is sufficient to have dreamed of a
lover and remember your dream, lor un
faithfulness itself leaves nothing but sad
and disturbing memories.
leneflclal tn Children.
Early marriage and the presence of
the grandparents, if useful to the young
couple, are still more beneficial to the
children. Early marriage diminishes the
difference in age and sentiments. between
parents and children. It Is this difference
that Montaigne wants to : make very
great that the son may not become the
rival of his father on the battlefield, In
business. In the pursuit of honor, that
the father may be ready to retire when
the activity of the son begins. It Is no
longer suitable In our days. As for
rvalry, twenty years dlffertnce In age
la sufficient that it may not become
dangerous to the father, and on'the other
side It Is an excellent thing for the son
of twenty to have a father of forty, be-
u the father will then at the same
time be able lo fill the place of a friend.
u eomiade. an advisor and protestor who
will be in full vigor, while If he were
sixty his strength would alrewdy lte on
the decline and his way of thinking
quite different from that of his son.
Montaigne never thinks of bringing up
of children by their parents and in this
regard a great difference in age between
father and son, mother and daughter Is
a very serious drawback. When you are
W and 10. respectively, you still understand
one another, but when you are 40 or 4i
and Ul, understanding is difficult, not to
say Impossible. Kducallon partly con
sists In Itving over again your own child
hood In your children, giving them the
benefit of your experiences. In becoming
a child once more to understand how to
guide and advise a child. You may be
ablu to live your childhood over again
until yuu are 30. at 40 It is difficult, at
50 impossible. I know this from my own
experience as a teacher. At 22 I was a
very good teacher, at 30 I was excellent.
at 40 I was a poor success, at uO I would
have been a miserable failure. It is
necessary fur a child to have happy and
Ught-hcarted parents who are able to
understand and take part In its Joys and
pleasures. All good men have had good
parents and neurasthenics are only those
who have had melaucholy parents.
"Cul non rlsere parcntes."
Jolly Parents Bearer.
There are almost no more guy and jolly
parents nowadays; they are all nearly 40
or 50. it is a disaster to a generation to
have had parents whose Joy of living was
a thing of the past.
The child who sees qnly its parents is
cheated of part of lis life. It sees only
one side of life and the sight of human
life as a whole Is an excellent and very
essential element In education. A child
mint have before Its eyes Infancy Im
personated by Its brothers or sisters,
youth and middle age by 'Its mother and
fathers, ripe and okl age by Its. grand
patents. I had a father and a mother who were
far too old for me, and, old grandfather
and grandmother, though my grand
father's soul had remained young. I felt
very well that I missed something. The
gap tu filled' by my uncle',' a splendid
young man, only 20 years older than I,
who came to live with us.
Webecame great friends, for he was
a good natured and Jolly fellow, lie
taught me something of life and also a
good many games, lie was Just old
enough to huve been my father and
thanks to him my register was now com
plete. I found In him something of the
father I ought to have had as far as
age la concerned, while in my father t
found a grandfather and In my 1 real
grandfather a great grandfather. v
This was very convenient. A child
should have an opportunity to observe
life In all Its phases. . .There Is no better
preparation for life Itself.

George O. "Wallace Is home from ft.
Louis where he attended a meeting of the
committee of ninety-seven, Men and
Religion Forward Movement.) Mr. Wal
lace also took oecsslon to look Into the
methods of conducting tho eight-day
campaign In" 8t. Louis, similar- to the
campaign which will be conducted In
Omaha the last week in March, and will
report to the committee, ha vlng charge
of the Omaha movement at Its next meet
ing.
Mr. Wallace states that the committee
of nlnetv-seven Js enthusiastic over the
great growth of Interest which men of all
classes sre showing. Not only are mem
bers of Christian churches aroused, but
leaders In the Corns n Catholic and Jew
ish churches are co-operating In a num
ber of cities, while leading citizens In
many cities who are not members of sny
church express their confidence In the
good that must result from such cam
paigns. About one-third of the Cities to be
visited bv the teams who hold from five
to eight-day campaigns of direction and
Instruction have already had their cam
paigns and reports were, received from
these. Minneapolla was- the first city
touched and because of the experimental
staae of the movement at that time did
not see Immedlste results a clearly as if
the campaJgn-had been conducted later.
However, the reports from Minneapolis
are extremely interesting.
Mr. Wallace says that Omaha was pe
culiarly fortunate In having- tho campaign
at so late a date, not only on account of
th accumulated force of the movement
which will be behind the work when
Omaha Is reached, but because of the
greater experience which the specialists
can bring to their work here. Mr. Wal
lace, after studying the preparations
made at 8t. Louis, comes back much en
couraged with the situation here and feels
that the lending church men of Omaha
and the churches are into the work here
as heartily aa anywhere In the country.
