conditions which naturally come with
inventions and greater enlighten

and old are living too much in automo
biles and not enough in the home. We
must get back to the hearthstone and
there spend more time in teaching
our children those old virtues which
are so essential to the building of
character, HONESTY, MORALITY.
SOBRIETY, INDUSTRY AND GOD
LINESS. It was this home training
which made George Washington the
"Father of his country." He com

Revolution, BUT MARY WASHING

could to comfort him. As the hours
wore away and the great Kentucky
statesman grew weaker he appeared
to be again living in the past. He
