TIH3 CITIZK.V, WKDXIJSDAY, .U'LY 13, 1010.
Whnt becomes of precocious children
when they grow up? Nobody knows.
It Is a good thing that average gctu
hold of them or wo would bo a land
overflowing with geniuses. There
would be so many of them that com
mon people would not bo missed from
tho directory, says an cschnngo.
As a matter of fact, tho men and
women who nro doing things when
they aro flfty years old nro not the
ones who were pointed out on chil
dren's day. Very often precocity Is n
flower that blooms early and withers
early. Even tho big men and women
who stand out In history were coin
monplaco children, whllo their preco
cious companions sleep In obscure
graves. Tho most precocious thing
George Washington did was to lay low
tho historic cherry tree, and this Is
more than duplicated each day by boys
who never rlso to dizzier pinnacles
than school directors.
Too often the boy who stood nt the
head of the spelling class comes when
he Is forty years old to tho boy who
stood nest to tho end for a Job. Con
gress has within Its halls today men
who didn't learn to read until twelve
years of age. Lifo Is not a dash and
sprint, with tho prlzo to tho child who
gets away from tho starting line first,
but Is a day in day out Marathon, with
the laurel to tho one who keeps plug
ging along. More llfo meets nro won
by plugging than by sprinting.
So let tho mother of tho ordinary
child up and clear her looks. Do not
envy the precocious child of your
neighbor. Rest secure in tho knowl
edge that tho precocious child across
tho street may bo only a morning
glory to dazzle for an hour, while your
own child, with Its glories yet unre
vealed, may be a lily of tho valley to
gladden hearts for many days.
Overattentlon to Children.
Few mothers realize tho risk of over
caution and overattentlon to their chil
dren nfter they are old enough to play
nnd romp about. A child Is happier
with few and simple playthings than
with a multitude of complicated toys.
There is no such good fun or good
training as making oneself useful in
doing little tilings like work, and it Is
cruelty to deprive tho child of this
pleasure and stimulus. Let the bralu
and body be trained through band, foot
and eye. Give the boy a carpenter's
bench; encourage tho girls to do house
work. Where possible let both boy
and girl have a little garden patch, if
only a few feet square, and tho care
of a few plants. A woman In her
home, a man in his garden this seems
to bo a fundamental typo from which
wo cannot entirely depart without risk
to body and mind. Cheerfulness, sin
cerity, industry, perseverance and un
selfishness may be acquired by prac
tice and constant repetition as much
as the art of correct speaking or of
playing the piano and are far more
necessary to health.
In the Nursery.
notter than chairs aro low, broad
seats built in all around the wall of
the room. The seat should bo eight
or nine inches high and from one to
two feet broad and may bo put up by
a carpenter at slight expense. Tho
children may slide all along these and
draw their toys up beside them, and
there will bo less danger of bumped
noses and bruised elbows from tipping
over of the chairs. LltUo pillows with
durable covers may bo strewn about
for small, sleepy heads or to make
tho scat less hard. Such a scat Is
best made of hard wood If tho floor is
hard wood; If not it should bo mado
very smooth and varnished, so that
there may be no danger of splinters.
The Value of Laughter.
A famous doctor once said; "Encour
ngo your child to bo merry and to
laugh nloud. A good, hearty laugh
expands tho chest and makes tho blood
bound merrily along. Commend mo to
a good laugh not to a little, sniggling
laugh, but to one that will sound right
through tho house. It will not only do
your child good, but will bo a benefit
to nil who hear and bo nn Important
means of driving tho blues away from
a dwelling. Merriment is very catch
ing and spreads in a rcmarkablo man
ner, few being ablo to resist tho con
tagion. A hearty laugh is delightful
harmony indeed, it is tho best of all
Here' Good Advice.
Never give medlclno to a baby with
out a doctor's orders.
Do not use devices for keeping ba
by's food warm.
Keep tho food on lco until feeding
time, then warm It and givo immedi
ately. If any food Is left In tho bottle throw
When the Baby Sleep.
Do not permit a baby to sleep with
Its head under tho bedclothes. Trained
nurses who are supposed to know bet
ter nro often responsible for this habit
They keep the head of an Infant so
carefully wrapped for foar of draft
that the child becomes accustomed to
BELIEF IN WITCHCRAFT.
It Still Survives In Some Parts of
Belief In witchcraft Is still so fast
rooted In parts of India that unfortu
nate persons suspected of tho black
art nro not uncommonly done to death.
In Bengal last year soveral cases of
tho kind came before tho courts. In
the Sonthal Pnrganahs a woman was
murdered by her mother and brother,
who believed her to ho a witch.
In Pnlamau n man was killed, as
the villagers held that ho was a wiz
ard. In another caso two women were
murdered on the baro suspicion that
they had caused the death of three
children by cholera. Human sacrifice
also is still practiced among tho un
civilized tribes of Bengal.
In Angul some Khonds sacrificed a
girl as a propitiatory offering against
cholera, and In Palamau a boy was en
ticed Into the jungle and killed ns a
sacrifice. There can be little doubt
that nny relaxation of vigilance would
result In a serious Increase of witch
killing nnd human sacrifices.
Why Iron Rusts.
British Investigators estimate that
the rails of a single railway system In
England lose eighteen tons In weight
every day, and that tho larger part of
this loss Is due to tho effects of rust.
Tho problem of rust Is of great econo
mical Importance, not only because of
such losses ns that Just mentioned,
but also because of the great expense
Involved In repainting Iron and steel
structures In order to preserve them.
Thus $10,000 a year is spent in paint
ing the great Scotch bridge over tho
Forth. Recent experiments Indicate
that pure Iron In the presence of
pure oxygen does not rust. It ap
pears to bo necessary for tho produc
tion of rust that some ncld, notably
carbonic acid, shall bo present. When
Iron Is subjected to the action of wa
ter containing traces of acid, nnd In
the presence of atmospheric oxygen,
It always rusts. The rapid rusting of
Iron In railroad stations Is ascribed
to the presence of sulphuric acid de
rived from tho smoko of locomotives.
Swarming Bees' Scout.
Swarms of bees are sometimes com
pelled to take refuge In very remark
able shelters. A peculiar and Instruc
tive instance was observed by the
writer in tho spring of 1908. Tho
swarm flew over a large vineyard
which contained low buildings. One
of these buildings was constructed of
hollow concrete blocks. The swarm
flew directly toward a small hole in
one of the blocks and disappeared in
the Interior. No doubt the swarm
had rested on a tree or shrub on tho
preceding day and had sent out scouts
to seek a home.
Tho scout found the little hole lead
ing Into tho great cavity of the con
crete block, and reported their discov
ery to their comrades. This case fur
nishes Indisputable proof that swarm
ing bees really send out scouts, as
they are believed to do, for the little
hole could not have been discovered

swarm. Scientific American.
Photo Wakes Up and Goes to Sleep.
Changeable photographs of an unpre
cedented novelty, taken after a meth

Faculty of Science in the University
of Marseilles, M. Estanave, were late
ly elucidated before tho Academy of
Sciences at Paris, and are now creat

what is called technically n "dla-posl-tlve"

By Inclining the picture ever so little
and then shaking it a trifle, the eyes
of tho picture apparently open like
the orbs of a porcelain doll. In tho
photograph, monger, the entire coun

the photograph Is Inclined to Its first

Why Dumas Flls Quit Smoking.
The younger Dumas, like M. Mae
terlinck, became convinced In middle
llfo of the Injurious effects of nico
tine, and his conversion was brought
about In truly dramatic fashion," ho
onco told an Interviewer, "which cot
out so vividly tho evils brought on by
smoking that I laid down my cigar
(tho fifteenth that dny, If I remember
rightly) and vowed I would never
smoke again. This vow I have rigid
ly kept, and am firmly convinced that
tobacco saps tho brain as surely as al
cohol." Fortunately, tobacco-smokers
can point to a long line of distinguish
ed men, from Milton to Meredith, who
have lived to a great age with unim

The Food Value of Chestnuts.
Tho fruit of the chestnut treo Is
nearly ns valuable ns bread and more
valuable than potatoes for dietetic
purposes. Two pounds of chestnuts
contain 118 grammes of starch and
eight of fat.
Tho annual production of chestnuts
In Franco is over 3,000,000 quintals of
220 pounds. That means food for
many workmen. But the hldo-tan-ners
keop tho product from tho food
market by buying It In large quanti
ties for uso in their business. Pro
ducers mako more profit by selling
their chestnuts for tanning than by
disposing of thorn for food.
