Individuality In Children's Clotheo.
The aim of every fastidious mother
is, to dross her child simply and In n
becoming manner. Her clothes sho-ald
bo a part of her and not obtrude them
selves. Some mothers think that If the
child takes too much Interest In her
clothee she will become self conscious.
On the other hand, the child who
knows that she Is appropriately dress
ed, as a rule, forgets entirely about
herself and her frock, and It becomes
as much a part of her as her hair.
The growing mind of tho child is
very sensitive to Impressions, and If
she loarns early in life the cardinal
principles of good dressmaking it will
be as easy and as natural for her to ,
apply them as she grows up as any of
the other lessons of life.
Sensitiveness to Color.
come cuuuron are very sensitive 10
color. They take n strong prejudice to
certain colors. A red gown on a very
high strung girl has been known to
bring on a degree of excitement which
frequently resulted in Utntruins, while
a frock of a more pleasing color would
instantly soothe and quiet her. This is,
of course, an extreme case, but there
ore more children than mothers realize
who suffer cruelly from being compel
led to wear clothes which in color and
style nro distasteful to them. Instead
of trying to force tho child to wear
these clothes as a matter of training,
the situation should be studied and the
reason found for tho child's objection.
Child Must Be Considered.
It takes, ns a rule, such a little time
and so short an explanation to get the
child's point of view that it Is a pity
many mothers go ahead and order
their children's clothes without a
thought of tho Individuality of the
wearer, for children are so set In their
ideas that they will not listen to rea
son and will not be guided by their
mother's judgment, but It is necessary
for them to feel that tho mother Is a
competent guide. In these days, when
the whole system of teaching In tho
schools is to bring out tho individuality
of the child, It is not surprising that
tho girl, even before she enters her
teens, may feel competent to question
Just how much mother does know
about the right clothes for her. It Is
necessary for the mother of today to
study the clothes problem as it pre
sents Itself for her child. She will find
that it is not the least of the problems
which confront her, nor can it be solv
ed offhand at a minute's notice. Tho
day when one dress could be passed
down the lino from one youngster to
another is over. Tho manufacturer as
much as any one has hastened Its de
parture, for few of tho present day
fabrics will withstand more than a
season's wear and tear.
If the mother is to guide her child in
tho selection of becoming and appro
priate clothing she will teach her to
study herself. The designers of chil
dren's clothing are quite ready to help
the perplexed mother by offering her
gowns and coats and hats of many
styles, almost as varied as those for
older folk. The mother who selects
successfully the costumes most appro
priate for her daughter will cast aside
her own preferences. She may de
light in the fascinating Kate Green
away gowns and coats, but unless her
girl is of a picturesque type she will
be wise to pass them by.
The Awkward Child.
The robust, tall, awkward child who
promises to be a fine looking woman,
but who in her early teens Is the de
spair of many mothers, would look
ridiculous In a Kate Greenaway frock,
whereas she would forget her awk
wardness in a well cut Russian blouse,
where the low waist line would detract
from her height. Just as there are wo
men who always look well in severe
costumes, so there are children who
have a certain style In the simplest of
costumes nnd who become wholly com
monplace in appearance the mlnuto.
they are dressed up In frills and furbe
lows. It is far better to dress a girl of
this type in a plain little frock of soft
woolen or cashmere, if a wash mate
rial is not desired, than in a frock deco
rated with lace and embroidery, with
ruffles and shlrrings. On the other
hand, there are children who are fairly
Irresistible in dainty muslin frocks be
rlbboned and beruflled.
What a Yawn Tells.
When children bite their nails this
often points to some digestive trouble,
so do not scold your bairns for this
nasty trick, but diet them very care
fully and consult a doctor if they seem
at all out of sorts. In older people the
habit often goes with a hasty temper,
which, in its turn, may be traced to a
bad digestion.
Constant, uncontrollable yawning
way sometimes point to a growth in
the nose and throat. Tho person can
not breathe properly, so he is forced to
yawn, not by weariness, but in order
)f tYaw more air into his lungs.
Games For Children's Parties.
Do not choose an elaborate game for
a children's party. You must not, for
instance, have ono which involves tho
use of a song or speech, as many of the
children will not know the words and
consequently will feel "out of It" A
clever game of the "sit down and
think" kind may bo very good for
grown people, but it merely bores the
little ones and makes them cross and
The Financier's Rest.
rierre Lotl, the famous French nu

Ilotel Marie Antoinette In New York.
"There's a story," ho said, "that Il
lustrates well the energy of your men

"A gentleman called at the ofllce of
an Indefatigable millionaire financier.
It was 4 o'clock In the afternoon, -and
the financier lay back in a revolving
chair with his feet on his desk nnd a

last ten years without a day's vaca-

down, and I'm now going to take n
long rest.'
" 'And a well earned rest it will be,
too,' said the visitor heartily.
"The visitor departed, expecting that
the millionaire would set out at once
for Europe or California, but the next
morning he saw him presiding ns bus

"The millionaire frowned In amaze

Humorist Ford Has a Word to
Say About Lite at 'Sea,
Simeon Ford discussed thousand
foot piers for steamships at a banquet
aboard the new Lamport-nolt liner
Vestris, which plies between Brooklyn
and South America.
"Since tlie steamships are so anxious
for longer berths for themselves, let
'em reciprocate," said Mr. Ford. "No
six foot man can sleep In a berth on a
steamship unless he puts accordion
plaits in his legs.

The Pipe That Failed.
This story is told about ex-Senator
J. S. Clark of Calais, Me. One day
While awaiting his turn In a barber
shop in Calais he was talking with a
friend and was so deeply Interested in
the conversation that be allowed his
pipe to go out several times. Each
timo ho would ask Melvin Noble, a lo
cal practical Joker, for a match.
About the time he wanted tho fifth
match Noblo said, "I don't begrudge
you the matches, Jed, but I think it
would be cheaper for you to put a

The dealers who had large quantities

that the "worst is yet to come."
Hats and mice are such all round
nuisances and so destructive that traps
should be kept set for them all the
time. Only in this way can the ro

children from one to two yenrs old
have been scalded to death by falling
Into pans or tubs of hot water left on

Tho hens of tho United States laid
1,700,000,000 dozen eggs in 1912. which
were worth 5350,000,000. The value of
fowls of nil kinds raised was $1220,000,

poultry products up to $570,000,000.
Analyses show sorghum seed to have
about three-fourths of the feeding val

seed it gives best results in feeding

Both meat und fish, as well as fruit,

It is really feed economy to blanket

Nine men nnd boys killed and some
thirty-three wounded more or less se
riously is tho score In Ohio for the
thirty days' open season for shooting
rabbits. This Is about as bad as the
showing during the open season on

the writer can't understand about the
Ohio situation Is not that there were
so many killed and Injured, but why
tho open season on rabbits Is not

A clean, well drained barnyard is es

It Is worth while putting a barrel of
apples In the cellar for tho youngsters
simply for the happy recollections they
will have In after years of tho pleasure

these same apples are helpful to tho
digestion and disposition of older folk
if eaten Just before going to bed.
In"protecting the rosebushes for the

mice will And a harbor near them and

Feeders of beef cattle have come to
be pretty well agreed that better re

A vaccine to check tho ravages of
the horse plague Is being manufactured

Agricultural college at Hoxio at tho

James J. Hill, the great railroad mng

Whereas they are at present paying 8
per cent or more. Mr. Hill usually

Success in agriculture or horticulture
