We three had come in from our

I mean to use my own experience

Bringing Up Father Copyright, 1918, International News Service -* m - By McManus
— i
A nightmare childhood! Left
moterless at birth; until she was
thirtene years of age a drudge in
a racetrack boardhouse, where
the rough talk and actions of
"swipes" and stable helpers were
her dally portion; then "on her
won," a subject for all those unwel
come experiences which fall to the
lot of a young and unprotected
No wonder she has few illusions
left in regard to either life or men.
At an age when most children are
learning kindergarten songs she
was a sophisticated woman of the
I world, listening wide-eared to the
Rabelaisian jests and broad allu
sions of the stablemen as she ran
errands and saved steps for the
overworked mistress of the board
inghouse. In the years when pink
and white girlhood awakens to ro
mance and dreams of a possible
Prince Charming she was strug
gling for a living, repulsing the
attentions of would-be mashers,
face to face with crude, hard, ugly
facts of existence.
"I found my way up," she writes.
"Life became easier for me and I
graduated into a better environment
but on every hand there were men,
men, men. There were times when
nothing saved me but my steady
nerve and cool insolence. I hate
every man—almost — that I have
ever known."
"No, she has no illusions. Or,
rather, perhaps, she is the victim
of a very great illusion when she
believes that all men are vicious.
Even she herself is compelled to
make one exception; for, as if by
way of compensation for her early
hardships, the story she relates nds
in a happy marriage, with a hus
band whom she regards as little less
than perfection.
And so. like a second Pilgrim,
having after many trials and tribu-
I iations attained Paradise, like a
I second Eve, she promptly proceeds
to llnd her Garden of Eden some
thing to fret and worry about.
"My dear Mrs. Woodrow," she
writes, "my husband and I are con
-1 fronted with a problem that we our-
I selves are unable to solve and
which we desire to submit to you.
We have a little daughter who is
five months old to-day, and are anx
ious if possible to save her from any
I such experiences and insults as I
1 was called upon to endure in my
| growing years.

lof her —one whom she can love
I with all her heart and who will
j love and cherish her' in return.
' We want to see her a happy wife
I and mother. We want to insure her
. a favorable destiny.
"But the question is. How to ac
complish this. My husband sug
-1 gests going to the country in order
to give her a simpler and more
healthful environment; yet I hesi
tate to take this step on account of
the superior school advantages
which town life offers for we want
to educate her in the best possible
"We hope you will be able to help
us, because wo can't feel sure in
our own hearts Just what is the
wisest course to follow to attain
our purpose."
And I am supposed to be a sort
| of a fairy godmother, who, by the
mere wave of my magic wand, can
endow this baby girl with all the
blessings that humanity yearns for
—a Cinderella coach with horseg
and footmen and at the end of her
Journey a Prince of Dreams to

Parents have always made the
mistake of thinking that if they
wero able to control circumstances
they could make certain tho well
being of their children. Napoleon,
who was the master of the world,
tried It; and the son for whose sake
he divorced the one love of his life
and plunged Europe into a succes
l slon of bloody wars, whom he pic
tured ns a mighty monarch wield
j ing universal dominion,' died a piti
ful little exile, a dependant In an
alien Court.

slant toward men and things from
that of any other person; and our
happiness consists in expressing
our own individuality In the espe
cial way that most appeals to us.
You cannot make a child happy by
building his house of blocks for
him, no matter how perfectly you
may do it. He wants to build that
house for himself according to his
own particular ideas.
And circumstances also have lit
tle to do with either happiness or
obstacles to be overcome and so
provide the joy of winning. Hap
piness does not come from a life
in either the city or the country,
neither from height nor depth, nor
any other creature. It comes from i
freedom to express one's self and |
from the inner power to enjoy.
Naturally this mother wishes to
protect her daughter from such a
seamy, sordid youth as she knew;
yet may It not be that her own
present happiness is based upon
her ability to appreciate by con
trast the love and home she now
All we can hope for the children is
to keep their bodies sound and
their minds flexible, give them '
freedom to follow their bent and
teach them to see not the evil of
men. but the good. For the rest,
as the Scotch say, they must "dree

into another room where there is a
comfortable chair. Sit down, having
her sit on your left knee. By this
time her mind will be somewhat di
