why eh allowed her chiMrcr
end her husband to litter up ev
ery room in her house. The sen
timent will find lodgment in the
heart of every home loving per
son in the land: "The mark of
the little muddy feet U)X)ii the
lloor can be more easily removed
than the stains where the little
feet go into the highway of sin.
The prints of the little finger

fUt out the sunshine half ho
much as the shadow that darkens
tliu mother's hf-art over the one
who is but a name in the coming
years. And if my Joe finds home
a rafugefrom care and his great
ost happiness within its four
walls, he can put his boots in the
racking chair and hang his coal
on the floor any day in the week.
And if I stand it and he enjoys
it, I can not sue that it is any
body's affair." lix.
