THE. MORNING' OREGONTAN, THURSDAY, JANUARY 25, 1917.
ONE of the latest brides of the sea
eon, Mrs. William Eldon Furnish,
was the inspiration for an excep
tionally pretty reception given, by her
mother-in-law, Mrs. William Jeffers
Iurnish. and her Sister-in-law, Mrs.
Btewart J. Moore. - The drawing-room,
where tlie attractive receiving line wag
stationed, was charming- with a riotous
array of Spring: flowers. Yellow
shades, interspersed with greenery,
predominated, making an effective foil
for the toilettes and gowns of the
hundreds of women who thronged the
looms from 3 to 6 o'clock.
In the dining-room an atmosphere
of Spring was given by the floral
decorations, tulips and daffodils being
used on the prettily appointed tea
Mrs. P. J. Mann, Mrs. John Ross
Dickson and Mrs. Dorsey B. Smith
presided at the urns and served ices,
and they were assisted by Mrs. Per
clval Hetherton, Miss Vona Guthrie,
Mrs. Otto H. Mattern, Mrs. Jay Coffee
and Miss Julia Piatt.
The hostesses were assisted in the
drawing-room by Mrs. John Claire
Monteith, Mrs. C. C. Phillips. Mrs. T. C.
Taylor, Mrs. Frank. R. Gollehur and
Mrs. W. E. Fraley.
An event of importance on the cal
endar for tonight is the card party and
dance to be given by the Scot
tish Rite Masons at their cathedral.
Elaborate preparations have been
-made for this affair, which bids fair
to rival its predecessors.
The charming and interesting bride,
Mrs. Frederick Porter, of Halifax, who
is visiting relatives here, was the
honoree for the delightful bridge lea
given yesterday by Mrs. W. D. Ketr
at the home of her aunt, Mrs. I-L K.
Randall, in Irvlngton. A happy com
bination of Winter and Spring was
noticed in the floral decoration, both
chrysanthemums and Spring flowers,
including the pussy willows, daffodils
and tulips, over which hovered dainty
butterflies, being effectively arranged
about the drawing and dining-rooms.
Nine tables were arranged for
bridge and the guests were joined by
eeveral others at the tea hour. The
'pretty tea table was presided over by
Mrs. A. R. Porter and Mrs. Samuel li.

The wedding of Miss Marlon Briggs.
land girl, to John Porter Weston was
an event of yesterday. The ceremony
was read at high noon at the home
of the bride's parents, in the Willmar
apartments. Rev. John H. Boyd of
ficiating. The bride was attractive
in a smart tallleur of dark green
volour, worn with chio toque. She
also wore a corsage of orchids and
violets. The . oung folks were unat
tended and the ceremony was charac
terized by its -extreme simplicity.
The bride is a daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. IX W. Briggs. The family came
from Saginaw, Mich., about five years
ago. Mr. Weston is also a Portland
man. doming from Rochester, N. T.
He and his bride left for a fortnight's
trip to Victoria and other Sound points,
and upon their return will be at home

One of the Interesting events of the
first part of the week was the trip

VV the dancing master's exasper

These phrases almost sum up Pen

We Forget Our Own Boyhood.
The hardest thing for us adults to
remember, whose energies are over
taxed Just to perform the day's work
and whose nerves impel us to no more
active relief than can be afforded by
a rocking chair, is that a boy is in
torture when he is sitting still. The
inconvenience whlbh this temper of the
child brings to us who are grown up ie
such that we are continually combating
it as if it were a sin. Therefore the
ordinary boy is most of the time at
bay. Unlike' Penrod, "if he lives in
the city, he does not have a. barn to
retreat to. a deg for a comforter or the
gymnasium of ' at backyard.
The attitude of society is precisely
like that of the average home. Its
first effort with the boy Is to clamp
him down. When clamping down fails
it can think of nothing wiser to do to
him than to shut him up.
Story of a Real Boy.
I knew a particular boy once whose
physical energies were more extremely
developed than in any other lad 1 ever
knew. He had a bright mind and could
get all his lessons satisfactorily enough
for his own purposes In less than an
hour a day. This gave him the rest of
the time to inflict himself upon the
neighborhood and keep his parents
guessing as to what he would try next.
His teachers understood hirh. no bet
ter than his parents. They usually
began by trying to love himf but after
he had se off gunpowder in the dor
mitory and thrown things- out of his
window at them as they passed be
low, they ended by heartily hating
him. They passed him to some other
school without, recommendation, and
Prodigal Return l'nrepentan
After be had left several schools and
colleges by request, he undertook his
o-vn education. He found his way to
widely separated parts of this and
other countries at his own expense.
He learned many lessons that were not
taught in schools and acquired several
very dangeroua' habits. But after a
while he came home, not like the prodi
gal repentant, but apparently with the
idea of running excursions into the far
country. He changed his mind, mar
ried a nice girl, took a big Job and is
making a great and useful success.

As I see it now. what he needed all
along was what he got at the end. a

unpractical and to him aimless.' He
was really a bigger man than his her
mii teachers. He wai the kind that
wouldn't stay in harness until he was
loaded to the eyejjrows. Then he would
lift up his heels, raise his shoulders
and jubilantly run along underneath
his burden. . ; ' -
If I had that boy I would tell him
that "I wouldn't allow him to. stay in
school unless he would work in a
grocery store every afternoon and Sat
urday mornings, or something like
that. If he rebelled and said he would
not go to school, then I would suggest
that he try the grocery or something
like that, all the time. It wouldn't
make much difference which way he
decided. Plenty to do, with some im
; mediate objective, is his prescription.

To the Editor:
How much attention ought we to
pay to what our little boy of 10 says
as to what he is going to become when
he is grown up? For some time he has
talked about being a railroad engineer.
The choosing of a life career is a
long and wearisome process. I ques
tion whether a young person often
adopts a vocation that he has planned
for in his childhood unless it is the
one followed by his father or Is one
which he has played, and practiced for
a number of years. It Is very common
for boys of, the age of yours to favor
occupations Involving noise and mo
tion, such as rallroadlnsr. flremanshln.
and playing in a military band. As
air castles these may be enjoyed. Oc
casionally they prove to be inspira
tions. I think we should pay a good deal of
attention even to these childish imag
inings. They give you the chance to
take the child on visits to various in
dustries and to call his attention to the
advantages and disadvantages of sev
eral occupations. Thus we put infor
mation in his way to draw out his tal
ents and encourage him later when the
real choice comes to decide, inert mi
How to Keep From Spoiling the Baby.
To the Editor:
Our little Benjamin, who Is 3. is the
tiniest, of eight children, and it seems
as if all the other seven were bent upon
spoiling him. He is so lovable that I
can't blame them, yet I feel concerned
about it. . T
There will have to' be a little more
wholesome neglect. He - must not be
picked up and petted every time he
falls down. While all take care of him
he must be- commanded only by you,
and you will need to assume a very
firm manner about ihrs at times. Just
as soon as he is old enough to get out
into the rough-anf-tumble of play with
children outside his- own family, I am
sure this difficulty will be corrected.

By Rev. J. 8. Kirtley, D. D.
AFTER he won his first disciples
Jesus took them on up with him
to a wedding in the town of Can a.
near his old home In Nazareth. There
he employed for the first time the su
perhuman powers with which be had
been endowed by the holy spirit. He
did it to express his love and sympathy
for human life and to show to all that
nature which was to achieve so much
for them. From there he went down to
Jerusalem to attend the Passover. Tha
was April A. D. 27, according to our
The Shock He Received 13-14.

inaugurating his work, for he has not
done so as yet. I quote from the writ

start swlth. his Father's message at his
Father's house. The life of the nation
centered there and he would bring: help
for the nation to the nation s heart of

those influences at their source. The
men behind those Influences lived there
and he would offer to them, first of all,
the help he brought. There was un
speakable need there and It was his
duty to begin at the point of greatest
need. He had been promised to the na
tion as their Messiah and he must re
port at the nation's headquarters. He
will be their sacrificial Passover lamb,
who will bear off their sins in reality,
and he will present himself to them as
they are offering their Passover sacri

excited much enquiry - and comment.
The people wondered If this were not

of the lesson.
2. Shock. He saw the great evil
that had befallen the nation the "in
curable corruption" of its leaders and
the loss of discernment on the part of
the people, together with their loss of
confidence in the leaders. He saw it in
their lives and in the way they treated
the temple. It was not so much that
they offered animajs for sale within, the
wide temple inclosure, for all had to
buy them for sacrifice-and this spot
was convenient for the visitors to the
city at the festival: nor that the deal
ers were ready to trade the home she

cruel, vicious, they had got hold of the
trade, created a monopoly and were
growing rich by compelling the poor
and Ignorant and credulous strangers
to pay enormous sums for the animals
they bought and for exchange on their
foreign coins, thus turning the sacred
place and sentiments into means of rob
bery. No lamb- could be offered unless
it was passed fen by the priests and
these men compelled the priests to turn
down all that: their competitors offered
for sale 'pilous graft, most horrible.
The situation he discovered threw him
into a state of anger such as ho-had
never felt before. That anger was as
holy as his love. With him It was a
moral, passion. Only evil could arouse
It. Its intensity and thoroughness
measured the malign and disastrous
character of the evil.
His Vindication of God's House, 15, 1.
"And he made a scourge of cords.

'Forty and six years was this temple

of them recalled the old passage about
the seal of God's servant. They never
lost the educative impression of it.
They treasured his cryptic words and
in after years understood them and un

2. On People. There were two

their power to "work" them. But they
were helpless and all they could do was
to question him aoour his authority.
From that they went to work, making
it hard for him to do anything in Je

They resolved, that he should be put

tained a reserve from that time. He
answered their question with a simile
that meant one thing to him. another to
them. They were destroying the tem
ple as a place of worship and he would
rebuild It by restoring spiritual wor
ship. Later they brought against him
that same charge of blasphemy, in
threatening to destroy the temple, and
had him crucified.
' ' What the Blasters Say.
It was Christ's practise to sow seeds
of future knowledge. In the minds of
those to whom he spoke. He gave an
intimation of his resurrection when
challenged as to ' his authority for
"cleansing the temple. No one who
heard him fully understood: but his
disciples received the seed into good
and. honest hearts, and there was a
harvest later. In this we may learn
one wlsa;method of teaching. Wallace.
Jesus still comes to his temple. Each
of us is a temple of God. Every
man is the presence-chamber of God.
Many refuse him entrance Into his

knowing it suffer great loss. For the

WHATbu Can Make
By Mrs. Portland.
THE: woman who would cut the high
cost of living will find that she
can effect a large saving by making
her own curtains, quilts, cushions,
draperies, bed and couch covers
part of them at least and the vari
ous handmade, useful or ornamental
accessories of the dining-room, living'
room and kitchen. Such a variety of
materials are now used for curtains,
cushions etc, that one may draw
heavily on cast-off articles from the
wardrobe for these purposes. The best
parts of old swlss. dimity or other
thin materials in skirts may be made
Into sash curtains or cushions, and one
great advantage In using such ma
terlals as these that have often been
laundered is that they have already
shrunken and can be made up in Juut
the size wanted, whereas in buying
many kinds of new thin goods alldw-
ance must always be made for shrink
age. Cotton dress goods in any kind
of flofal designs may be used for win
dow curtains, cushions and upholster
ing. If the goods are a little faded
