I A Simple Formula—To Practice !

There is hui one way iliat I know j
of CO icach good injnners lo chiU |
dren;good manners, that is, ihaiare
worth the praciicing and are noi
mere polish and sham and hypoc
risy; but one way, and that is—oh
simple formula!—10 practice good
It is a simple means; i( does
away with worry, with an.xiecy,
with tedious training, with inortiK-
cation and a hundred other Ills;
and yci, it is the means wc most
neglect. All over the land, un
thinkable women are still saying to
ihe c.jsual guest: “How good for
you to come! Oh, no you are not
late. U'eil, it doesn’t matter a bit;
but to the child the old f.<rniula:
“Whai did 1 tell you! Don’t let
me have to speak to you again.”
“Thomas, shut the dpor!" and a
hundred other inexcusable crudi
In speaking of good manners. I
vvould not Imve you ihmk i refer
only to that ease and graciousness
of manner which we are wont to
call politeness. The crudities we
display in dealing with our children
affeci, unfortunately,far more than
their outward deportmem. They
influence-harmfully the mind and
spirit as well as the manner. Our
contrasted manner toward him and
toward strangers cultivate in the
child an indifterence to the truth;
they teach him insincerity; they
give him a standard of crudeness
and unkindness which are at vari
ance with (he standards of high-
minded and noble people. These
failures and inconsistencies of ours
rob him in a hundred ways. They
wear upon his nerves as only il
logical, iixational, unharmonious
and and inconsistent things to do.
The child brought up in a home of
crude manners goes into the world

Creeping so softly lo lake a last peep—
Silence ihe token of childhood's sleep;
Anxious to know if the dear ones are warm;
Tucking the blanket round each little form;
Kissing each little face, rosy and bright.
That is what mothers are doing lo-night.

The story of the rival bootmak
ers, which appeared recently, is
matched hy a correspondent of an
Hnglish paper equally worth re
peating. It concerns two rival
sausage-makers. Again, they lived
on opposite sides ofa certain street,
and, one day, one of them placed
over his shop ihe legend :
’‘We sell sausage to the gentry
and nobility of the country."
The next day. over the way, ap
peared the sign ;
“VV<; sell sausage to the gentry
and n«>t>ility of the whole country ”
Not to be outdone, the rival put
up what lie evidently regarded as
a Knai stuteinent, namely :
*'We sell sausage fo the King ”
Next day there appeared over
the door of the hrst sausage-mak'-r
the rixple expression of loyally :
“(iod save the King.'’
