When one talks of n nagging wife
It Is goucrally to refer In pitying terms
to tbo man whom sho has married.
Much more to bo pitied, however, nro
tho children of tho marriage. A man
con enduro much and And a remedy In
retaliation. But sonsltlvo children
shrink from the continual fault end
ing and suffer in silence
What makes matters worse for the
little ones Is that there are many wo
men who aro regarded by their hus
bands as model wires, but who on ac
count of their thoughtlessness toward
their children aro really not at all
In fairness to many mothers It must
bo said that they unwittingly fall into
the habit of nagging their children.
Tho tiresome ways of the latter seem
moro than they can bear at times,
and tho result Is that they are apt to
"Don't do this" and "Don't do that."
"Why can't you let things alone?"
"I never saw such a child." "You
aro a perfect worry, but what can one
expect from such a child? You are
exactly like your father," etc.. ad nau
seam, through all tho nerve racking
catalogue of nag.
And then these mothers honestly
wonder why their children aro reduc
ed to a state of sulky Irritability. Such
mothers never seem to take into con
sideration tho fact that children are
tho most sensitive beings in tho world
and that their wholo experience is
made up of small Joys and small sor
rows that can make life a misery to
The Children' Playmates.
No one, of course, thinks that a
child's manners should be neglected,
but there nro ways of turning out well
mannered children who are not at the
same time hopeless snobs. The way
to do this Is to choose their playmates
for their intrinsic worth as well as

Even If Charlie's father Is a coachman
it Is much better for a mother to say
after his departure, "I notice that
Charlie was the only ono who was
willing to give up his place at the
microscope; I hope the next time he
comes you can all do as well," than to
remark. "I am sorry to seo that Char
lie doesn't wipe his feet on the mat
before he comes in."
Moreover, if tho next time John Is
caught omitting tho service at the door
mat he remonstrates, "Charlie didn't,
do It," the mother needn't feel that tho
coachmau's son has led her children
astray. It Is a slmplo matter to say:
"That has nothing to do with it;
Charlie is not my little boy, but you
are, and I expect you to obey me. Ills
mother probably has him clean bis
feet In another way, and I haven't a
doubt be obeys her perfectly."

Caro in deflnlug a new word to a
child often opens up a wholo new field
of observation, and it should bo done
as conscientiously as possible. A
straight "I don't know" is preferable
to a 'careless or slipshod definition.

AND THE GAMIN.
Ruler of the Russias Interviewed
by a True Parisian,
On one of tils visits to Paris Nicholas
II. was left alone ft a moment in his
carriage. The czur was delighted at
the feeling of freedom and ease. Look
ing out of tho window with all tho
rest of a schoolboy playing truant,
he saw before him ono of those pic
turesque street urabs who seem to
sprout between the paving stones of
Paris. This particular specimen, seat
ed against the railings, with his noso
in tho nlr, was whistling tho refrain of
tho Russian national hymn. Suddenly
their eyes met. Tho street boy sprang
to his feet. He had never seen tho em
peror, but ho had seen his photograph,
and the likeness wus striking.
"Suppose it Is Nicholas?" he said to
himself, greatly puzzled.
He resolved to make sure without do
lay. Walking up to within a yard of
the carriage and bobbing his bead, be
houtod In a hoarso voice to tho un
"How's tho empress?"
Picture his stupefaction for, in fact,
be thought that It was only a good
Joke when tho stranger replied, with
Thank you, the empress Is very
well and Is delighted with her Jour
ney." The boy lost bis tongue. He stared
at tho speaker in dismay and then,
raising bis cap, etalked away slowly,
vpry slowly, to mark his dignity.
Nicholas II. afterward often amused
himself by scandalizing tho formal sot
around him with the story of this prt
vato Interview with a true Parisian.

Madam, Would You
Like a Healthy
The rosy cheeks, red lips, and bright
sparkling eye3 of natural healthy beauty
is the only kind that charms. Lotions,
washes, paints and powders deceive no one.
The real Beauty of Health comes only
with pure rich blood. What makes pure
red blood ? Why, your stomach, liver and
bowels all working right. Dyspepsia, in
digestion, constipation and biliousness will
ruin any complexion. To get rid of these
and have the Beauty of Health, the only
real Beauty, take Smith's Pineapple and
Butternut Pills. They invigorate the
blood, strengthen the nerves, and the skin
becomes rosy and red, showing the circu
lation is normal and active as Nature in
tended it should be. Physicians use and
recommend. They fdrm no habit. You
should always keep them on hand. These
little Vegetable Pills will ward off many ills.
