The Love and Respect ol Your
If mothers could only reulize
whpi a critical period iheir children
are pa.ssiiig through from the third
to the sixth year, they would exer
cise more than ordinary care dur-
i ingthat lime. Not only physically
; but mentally and morally are they
undergoing a change for better or
! worse, according to the care and
i aiieniion they receive from their
^ mothers and fathers. A father is
no more exempt from certain du-
' tics toward his offspring than a
; mother. He should always bear
in mind that his assistance in the
' control of the children is of more
value to his tired wife than the pre
sentation of a cosily gift. It is at
this time that children begin to no
tice papa's and mamma’s bearing
' toward one another; let this always
be one of perfect courtesy and re
spect. Nothing so quickly de-
! stroys respcct tor parents as con-
; stant bickering In the presence of
I their children. The first thing a
child should be taught is respect
for his parents and elders; affec
tion comes naturally with most chil
dren, and is a most valuable aid in
; gaining control of theiractions;next
to that is respect; without it very
i little can be accomplished for the
I child's action. Parents should
I bear in mind that children lose re-
' spict very soon on hearing them
disjgree; using bitter, cutting
i words to each other. This is in-
I flicting the first actual pain the
; baby hearts have been called upon
to bear. In the presence of this
‘ the child experiences conllicting
emotions which ends in pity for
one parent and contempt for the
; other. O parent, pause, consider,
before you lose the hold on the little
being who has heretofore consid
ered you perfect. Let there be
unanimity of purpose in act, word
and deed before these little creat
ures, who are so susceptible to ev
ery impression, if you would pre
serve their love and respect.

casional "Lovers’ Kiss.’’
Where one wife is now kissed
with some pretence at regularity by
the man who was always swearing
before marriage that he would eat
her up before the year was out, it
is safe to say that ninety seven
other women go moping around
the house with lips parching from
neglect, burning biscuits and run
ning down shoes in sheer despair,
for the want of that encourage
ment an occasional kiss would
probably give. This is not as it
should be for a kiss after marriage
is relished equally with those be
fore and if you want to see your
wife tripping about with melody in
her soul and feet like cork just im

is all your own; do not hurry, for in time it is like all other days; neith

let its fresh beams bathe away all the stains of night, then should the
noon be dark with storms, your smile will wear the rose tints of the
morning. This new day can be .saved only by spending it; therefore,
in its care be enduring; in its confusion be patient; in its sorrow be ,
trustful; in its trial be noble; in its peril be heroic. Step softly among |
human hearts and leave so much of kindness along life's pathway, that;
gladness shall spring up bearing tribute in the cool eventide of the
world’s glad Easter.—D. E. Croft.

THE OLD BLACK MAMMY.
'Tis easy to wander off from my theme
When traveling over the ground;
Thro’ evergreen pastures across the bright stream
When in fancy I wander around.
And see in the picture which never grows older
Tho’ age chills the blood which never grows colder.
In fancy 1 see those good old negroes again
I loved in the days long ago,
As they worked in the fields of cotton and grain
And sun as they chopped with the hoe;
I can never forget, wherever I roam.
The scenes ot my childhood and home.
The dear old black mammy, so gentle and tender.
So faithful sfhd true to her trust—
I loved her so well I dared not offend her;
She is gone, yet 1 honor her dust.
From the wells of my heart arise tears of regret;
Tho’ she sleeps ’neath the sod, I can never forget.
She was lovely to me in her colored bandanna
With which she turbaned her head;
Her songs were far sweeter than flute or piano
As she put me to sleep in my bed;
Her soft crooning voice I can never forget,
Like an angel, in dreams, she comes to me yet.

The Kind You Have Always Bought
It’s easy for a busy man to keep
out of mischief.
ONE FAIR FACE.
The might of one fair face sublimes my love,
For it hath weaned my heart of low desires;
Nor death I heed, nor purgatorial fires.
Thy beauty, antepast of joys above,
Instructs me in the bliss that saints approve;
ForO, how good, how beautiful, must be
The God that made so good a thing as thee.
So fair an imagine of the heavenly Dove!
Forgive me if I can not turn away.
From those sweet eyes that are my earthly heaven,
For they are guiding stars, benignly given
To tempt my footsteps to the upward way;
And if I dwell too fondly in thy sight,
I live and love in God’s peculiar light.
