Training The Child ,
by Wi LLiAM Byron Forbush. PhD.
IF YOU were asked, off-band: Which
will be the wiser, to educate your
child In such a way as to develop his
strongest side or to give him an all
round training, I venture to guess that
you would vote in favor of malting
him an all-around man.
The trouble Is, it cannot be done. If
you have a child who is "born Ions" in
come particular direction and "born
ehort" in others you can by neglect pre
vent his length from lengthening, but
you cannot possibly pull out his short
ness to even average length. What
you will accomplish is this: He will
never become the extraordinary man
according to his own bent that nature
intended, and he will wrestle In dis
couragement with the effort to do even
respectable work along the lines where
he was born weak.
Square Pesra vs. Round Holes.
Tou are an artist, let us say. and
your child shows talent as a musician.
If you insist upon giving him an art
education he will at length do passable
routine work, uninspired and unprom
ising. He may also thereby lose the
opportunity to be the superb musician
which technical training would have
opened the way for him to become.
"But my son is as smart as the next
one. I guss if he puts his mind upon
it he can do good work in any field to
which he applies himself."
Here Is the great fallacy. "Smart
ness," that is, general alertness, is not
transferable through every channel at
will. You can send electricity through
a copper wire but not through a lead
ilDe. There Is power enough, but lead
is not a good conductor. Neither will
industry ("putting his mind, upon it")
make un for a native Incapacity.
You recognize this fact in limited
fields. You would not think of trying
to make an artist of a person who was
color blind. But we are not so willing
to recognize that there are several
other kinds of blindness that are con
genital and incurable. "William Haw
ley Smith quotes as examples a certain
Judge who could never learn to "tell
time: an LLl D. who never could learn
to spell: a great statesman (Charles
Sumner) who was "little more than an
imbecile, mathematically," and a sue
cessful 6chool teacher who never was
able to tell her right hand from her
left without a strain of mental ertort.
Go and Kind Out.
Mr. Smith asks you to test the im
portance of native capacity by asking
sensible men in different employments
about it. In every way of life you will
get this answer: "Winners in our line
must be born, not made." He insists
that not one man out of four can be
come even a good foreman if he was
not born that way. "The popular the
ory that any man can do anything he
undertakes to do, whether he "has any
head' for it or not. if he tries hard
enough and keeps trying long enough,"
he 'concludes to be the most cruel of
fallacies. The attempt to do this cre
ates most of the discouragements In
school, accounts for nearly all the mis
fits In vocation and does a good deal
to explain why to so many million peo
ple life does not seem worth living.
Do you wish your child to be happy?
Then find out where he was "born
If there is something that he has
shown a strong interest in for a num
ber of years, get him a chance to play
with or study or work 'at it to the
furthest possible extent. Let him have
also broad training, culture, accom
plishments, if you can. But don't force
him from his own right of way upon
any siding of your own fancy.
When he gets ready to choose his
calling . insist that the main issue is
that he shall be able to shout everj
morning, with Marcus Aurelius, "L
I am going with gladness to that work
for which I was born into this world."
He may decide to become a barber,
when you wanted him to be a minister.
Well, he had better be a good and
happy barber than a discouraged min
ister. For "happy i3 the man who has
found his work."
manded to be home at 6 o'clock, but
he had become interested in chopping
small trees and earning money for the
kindling. "Aren't you ever going to
be more obedient, Harry, about coming
to supper on time?" his mother asked
hm in despair. "Do you really want
me to be more punctual? I will, if you
really want it." The mother, who was
an unusual woman, thought a moment
and answered: "No; if that extra hour
kes all the difference to you, you
wait until 7 and have supper with
father and me." She realized that his
rst absorption in a piece of work and
the ambition that was'awakenlng were
more important than conformity to her
This sensible attitude. Instead of
reaking down obedience, would make
the boy more glad to conform. By co-
perating with him she made him wili
ng to co-operate with her.
Jane, the Peeper.
To the Editor: Jane has developed a
very disagreeable habit of pryine into prl-
ate places, opening boxes and letters and
trying to overnear conversation tnat Is not
intended Tor her. I have never met any
thing of the sort before, and I am sure I
don't know what to do to cure her of the
habit. MRS. .
The habit is not Intentionally un
pleasant. It strikes me as partly due
to idleness. If her time were more fully
occupied with work and play she would
not pursue this amusement, which re
quires some leisure and forethought to
carry out. She seems to be imagi
native and very likely has read about
buried treasure and mysteries found in
chests and attics. I well remember as
boy being sure that behind a certain
door in my home there was a secret
passage, and that within a tall secre
tary there was a concealed drawer and
spring. Many children are on the look
out for such mysteries. I am impressed
that Jane plays alone too much and
that if she is with other children who
scorn these sneaking ways she will be
come ashamed of them.
You have perhaps already talked
plainly with her about this. You have
reminded her that she has secrets that
she does not want her little brother to
know, and so she must not pry into
those of others. I know of a mother
who told her-child the myth of Pan
dora, whose curiosity let loose from
her box a, flock of troubles. She ar
ranged it that whenever this little girl
exercised her curiosity unduly she suf
fered the appropriate trouble. After
she had surprised and exposed the.
plans for a picnic she had to make he
inquisitiveness take the place of going
to the picnic herself.
Is It Safe for Mother to Change Ber

revise his attitude. Can you give me
