v The advocate of ttie widowed mother'

almost Invariably develop Into -machine-like
men and women, without initiative
or originality of their own.
They have shown not only how cruel
a thing; it la to break the tie between
mother and child, and sisters and broth
ers, but also how dangerous It Is to do
o, for there Is no other one fact in
human development so potent as family
affection and the sense of responsibility
that this brings 'with It. Nothing; so
makes for recklessness of conduct In
either a boy or a girl as tho feeling that
. he or she has nobody belonging to him
or her.
Anf, conversely, the knowledge that
he has his widowed mother to support
has been the epur In the side of many a
boy that has sent him along the road of
lame and fortune. Even so great a man
as Sir James Barrie says that the thing
' that gave him courage to persist" "at the
writing" was his desire that his mother
might lie soft at night and sit warm by
the fire in the day.
Finally the advocates of the widowed
mothers' pension bill have shown that
tor the same amount of money that the
atate spends to keep a child In an orphan
asylum he can be boarded with his
mother and the little home kept together.
It Is right that the children should be
considered first in this matter, and their
good determine It, but there is also an

It was true. The overcoat and cap,
after bobbing and awaylng dangerously
over the water's edge for hour after

waddling out on the dock and shook the
overcoat. The cap wabbled.
"Hey!" This waa from the short, thick
figure, but the aperture through which
the sound came was so stiff that the
result waa only a whees.
A eacA-e came from the overcoat.
"Hey!' A punch, a kick, but a stiff
kick which had no force.
"Ugh!" The grunt cam from the
night watchman.
"Well, you with the distillery breath.

These women are primitive creatures
with primitive Instincts. They must have
something to love, something to think
about, something to work for. dive them
the normal life of a woman with a hus
band and children to fill their days with
Interest, and they are good women. Take
away from them all that they care for,
and you have snapped the anchor chain
that held them safe and steady In the
surge of temptations that beats about
every good looking young wotnsn who s
alone in the world.
The death of a day laborer, - and the
breaking up of a two-room home' Is a
far more poignant tragedy than the pass
ing away of a millionaire, whose family
have only their personal loss to mourn.
Their home remains Intact. The be
reaved widow does not have to have her
heart torn In twain a second time by
losing hor children as V-ell as 'her hus
band, ,
But this is the all loo common bitter
fate of the poor woman when the bread
winner of hor household dies. She cannot
make by her own labor enough to feed
the hungry mouths of her brood, and so
her little ones are taken from her and
sent to orphan asylums. Who can blame
the woman thus cruelly used by destiny
If she tries to drown the memory of
happier days in drink, or she dulls the
aching longing for her loved ones by
dope, or If, when there seems no right
way to happiness,, shi attempts to find
lt in the wrong way? ..
We hear much of a mother's enobling
and' restraining Influence over- her
children. It Is not a tittle of what a
child's influence Is over a mother. The
weakest baby hands thst ever fumbled
at a woman's brenst llnye more power
for uplift in them than all the preach
ing and moral platitudes that were ever
uttered. The eyes that a woman musv'he
able to meet fearlessly are her children's
eyes. And from the highest to the low
est, the thought of her children ha been
a magio talisman that has given millions
of women the strength to resist tempta
tion. , ,.
Only the most abandoned of women
will let evil come near her children or
permit them to see her do a wrong act,
and in this way the child becomes the
guardian and protector of the mother.
With her little home kept together,
with her children to work for, to be in
terested In, to expend " her " affections
upon, there in small chance of the
widowed mother not living an exemplary
life. Robbed by the death of her hus
band, and by poverty of home and chil
dren, who can tell to what length despair
may drive her, or which of us will daro
to cast the first stone if her eln has been
partly caused by our stupid laws? -
For the sake of the -woman, as well
bs the child, let us pass the widowed
Mothers' pension bill, and not be guilty
of separating a mother and her babes,
and breaking up a home' that mlgbt have
been kept together. . j

Ah you sure that you deserve no

A man of wealth cam easily enough hlr
a governess for his child. If your suitor

He levies on anything ho wants and

One of the kitchen boys was delegated
to carry the garbngo away In barrels on

This boy found that by scattering gar

He would also occasionally atop and
make friends with them by throwing
them morsela out of the barrels.
IVoars have temperament. No two are
alike In disposition. Some ore friendly,
others are susplc lous. Some arn selfish,

our presence, not realizing for a moment
that there were distinguished people In
the party. All at once every bear lifted

the man may get Into difficulty, but with
reasonable care there is no mora danger
In Yellowstone park from bear than
from horse.
