These declarations were made in the

later, after more than 50 years
of progress, the German government
has gone back to the methods used
by "barbarous armies" and "unciv "uncivilized

adopted the policy of deporting men
and Women, boys and girls, and of
forcing them to work for their cap

There are few cities that can look

can contrive to keep up with the times

in the guide books. In the city itself

been glorious, but the present is con considerably

This is the attitude of the typical
modern Alexandrian. If he belongs
to the educated classes he has an en entirely

are both primarily commercial. Yet

BE HONEST WITH CHILDREN

Made by Parent.
Do not lie to children. 1 They wil

fairy stories, let them understand they
are stories. Enjoyment of the tales
will not be less. Some try to control
children by telling them they will be
whipped, thrown out of the window,
that the "bogy man" will catch them,
that they will be "sold to the rag ragman,"

becomes as disobedient as ever per perhaps

like dares to continue.
One bad threat often made to chil children
dren children is that the policeman will get
them and take them to jail. Children
should be taught that the policeman is
a friend, not an enemy. They should
be trained to know the policeman is
one to guard them from harm and to
help them in trouble.
The evil of a lie to a child cannot be
estimated. It does not correct the
child's behavior. One loses the child's
respect, and one's authority is conse consequently
quently consequently weakened. A more serious re result,

to lie. Any lie is an attempt to de deceive

both for oneself and the child to whom
the lie is told. One should never make
a threat one cannot perform. Threats
are bad at the best. There are other
ways to accomplish one's purpose. If
you would keep your children honest
with you, be honest' with them.
MISSES INFLUENCE ON CHILD
Hard to Exaggerate How Important It
Can Be Made in the Training
Story-hour has always been the
standby of youth, gleefully anticipat anticipating
ing anticipating the soothing close of the day. Ev Every
ery Every mother, too, has appreciated these
minutes day after day, as a blessing in
the training and development of her
child. It is an Indisputable fact that
a child never absorbs more than when
it is interested and amused. So dur during
ing during the pleasant story hours the child
learns about the joys, the sorrows, the
disappointments in short, all the les lessons
sons lessons of life.
But now some resourceful mother
has discovered how to improve this
ancient institution. How? By setting
its libretto to music; by putting into
song all the little tales of the hour hour-cheerful
cheerful hour-cheerful tunes for tales of Joy ; low,
soft tunes for sad tales ; clamorous
tunes for victories.
Heretofore so many children have
grown to manhood and womanhood
without the helpful influence of music,
probably because the mother has put
forth such feeble excuses as T am pot
musical; I can only play for my own
aniusement." "I don't know enough
about music to teach it to my chil children."
dren." children." These ideas are old-fashioned
now, and no longer hold water. Any
little tune, no matter how weakly sung
or played, but fitting In with the mood
of the tale or action of the moment,
delights the child, and unconsciously
leaves behind an indelible Influence
and a recollection of happy days.
"Taking of Umbrage."
Barrie's famous story in "When a
