posed to know anything at least,
about politics, or what Is best for our
country. Most men think we should
be content, too, to allow Ignorant

help form our laws. Same of us arc
not. True, we know we've enough

most of us could find time to Instruct
ouftclvcs In Intelligent balloting, and
would doubtless makou greater suc
cessor It tlinn an Ignorant foreigner,
and would not place so great a pecun
iary value upon our vote.
But then! this Is the old debate of
"woman's rights." Somo of us want
to vote, and say soj others do, and say
they don't, because they can't; and
yet others don't care whothcr thoy
can orcan't. Tho first uro tho sort of
women who are very angry for u few
minutes, and then are sunny temp
ered again; the second aro tho sulky
sort, who are provoked If they can't
have what they want, and aro too
proud and sullen to a9k twice. And
the last? 0, they aro tho "contented"
sort. Deliver us from many of 'eml
If wo women were voters, I think we
would devote a few hours to learning
what "10 to 1" means, Instead of
standing on tho street corners and
harping on the trouble that will fol
low the adoption of tho "gold stand
ard," or tho good that will follow a
deatributlon of "frco silver."
A man told mo a story a few days
since which I would never have told
on another, were I a man, I would bo
so ashamed of him. Ho said ono man
said to another, "Why, if wo get a
distribution of frco silver ntthorato
of 10 to 1 every man nnd woman will
receiver $10, and each ono of their
children $10, and I tell you, I'll
ote for free silver every tlmol I
now which side of my bread Is
buttered." Well, I doubt it, don't
jou? There Is one comforting assur
ance, however, and that is this;
although that man's children may
not know any more about tho re
pectlve sides of their sllco of bread
wueo they aro born, their mother
will probably bo able to instill a llttlo
knowledge in their respective brains.
She can at least teach them not to
lick the butter all off tho ono sido,
nd then howl because they must
men cat tho dry bread. And when
tlleyget to bquabbllng over a chair,
uf them squalling- because tho
olher Is In his chair, she can and

toey must not be selfish. She must
"mberthat they aro embryo politl

traiu from their characters for tho

future good to their nation.

Teuch them habits of personal uout
ness. They learti very young thafot e
of tho iirst qualities, of ladyhood, Is
nnitly combed hair. Not long since
a childish conversation, was over
heard, which will serve to Illustrate
this point. One of the nclghboi's
vuuuiuii imu uuuii piaying wiiii n
bright llttlo girl, of six, who was
seated drumming on the nhitm.
"Now," said she, "Play you were a
lady come to visit mo and you were
going to sing, but wait a minute and
I'll get u brush and brush your hair,"
Und disgusted with the dirty race
and unkept hall, the little thing
darted Into her mother's room
and got her brush and was soon en
deavoring to improve the appearance
of tho other's hair. I'll venture she
afterwards lecelved some private In
struction, regarding the proper rare
of hair brushes.
To the parents the blame Is mostly
due of bad hublts formed In child
hood. A dear old lady said sho taught
her children how to eat In a manner
becoming a human being by giving
them, when small, a dish deep enough
so that If they could not otherwise
capture an elusive morsel they could
get it next the side of tho dish and
easily push It into their apron. "Wo
cannot expect a child's pudgy little
hands to bo very dextrous in the use
of a spoon. This grandma said, "It
almost makes me cry to sco a hungry
child come to tho tnblo and try to dip
anything from a shallow plate. First
they know it's over tho side nnd they
aro scolded for soiling tho cloth. Then
tho little things watch their chance,
und in go their lingers, and a largo
mouthful Is crowded onto tho spoon,
and as It Is conveyed to tho hungry
mouth, tho oyes aro watching tho
mother, momentarily expecting dis
covery, and u reproof for taking 'such
largo bites.' It Is an Insult to a
child.'" Give thoni a bright llttlo
pan shallow, with perpendicular
sides, then thoy can tako a reasonable
sized mouthful and not bo starving or
cramming, and aro not taught a les
son In deceit.
Sho is right, as any mother wllUsco
when sho gives tho matter a llttlo
thought. "When tho youngster has
become somewhat deft, his llttlo tin
"trough" can bo exchanged for some
thing more elegant, but do let them
cat in comfort. And don't let them
have "pie, tlrst," or allow them to eat
the Jam and leave tho bread, or thoy
will become "ring polItIclans,"Jand
