MRS. STOHER SPEAKS
Heilig Theater Crowded at
Lecture on Children.
METHODS ARE ILLUSTRATED
System of Educating Little 'Ones at
Play la Demonstrated by Moth
er or Girl Prodigy to
"1 don't give a -whoop for a child
who doesn't tell 'Ilea." said Mrs. Wini
fred Sackville stoner. during her lec
ture at the Heilig Theater yesterday
morning. "If a child tells lies direct
his mind in proper channels, for he
has an active mind and an abundance
"What shall I do with an Impudent
child?" beseeched a troubled mother.
"I hate to give this back to you, but
your child is just what it hears at
home or elsewhere. Be polite to your
children, and do not allow them to play
with Impudent youngsters. Truth in
children is often mistaken for Inso
lence," was the answer.
The theater was packed. Not a seat
was vacant and in the audience were
cores of physicians, educators, and
mothers, to say nothing of the flocks
of "kiddies" who came to play with
"Mother Stoner." The stage was a
perfect toyland, with almost every type
of domestic animal toy, a typewriter,
?olor balls, and balloons. "You see,"
said the mother of the child prodigy,
"I have nothing ettff. Everything is
moveable, lively and educational. You
may as well teach your children some
thing of value while they play."
Children Play on Stase. .
A bevy of "kiddies" were Invited
upon the stage to play with "Mother
Ktoner" as she taught a 3-year-old boy
to write with a typewriter. They then
circled about to the tune of an old
time hymn. This was- an enjoyable
spelling lesson. The next was a lan
guage lesson. "If you don't teach your
children languages before they reach
high school age they never will learn
the accent. But for a little child, French
is as easy as English," advised Mrs.
First of all. says Mrs. Stoner, chil
dren should be taught correct English.
She then advocates either Esperanto
or Spanish by a system of taking
words of the samo meaning and of
similar sound to begin with. "If." says
the educator, "every mother here would
teach her children English, or every
German mother teach her children Ger
man, and every French mother teach
her children French, and if then each
would teach her 'kiddies' Esperanto,
we would have an International me
dium." A. French lullaby, when taught by
Mrs. Stoner, proved a pleasure and easy
for the children, who each rocked a
dolly and sang her to sleep in French.
A new group of children was then sum
moned upon the stage, and with a de
lightful little fairy tale plot of a prin
cess in a castle and an array of brave
knights on little wooden horses to the
rescue, Esperanto was really fun.
"Qaudeamus Igitur" was next sung and
marched to. The children had little
difficulty with the Latin.
Sons Teache Gcorrapky.
Perhaps the most interesting point
In Mrs. Stoner'a demonstration was her
method of teaching geography. "Lon
don Bridge Is Falling Down" was- a
song of the North Pole. "To the North
Polo we will go, we will go. we will
go," sang the kiddles, and as they sang,
played the game impersonating "the
sled and dog. bear, reindeer, walrus
end aeal." that they would find at the
end of their cold journey.
Mrs. Stoner gave a few remarks on
some of the mothers who make failures
of their children. "The woman who
has no time for her family, who scrubs
and works continuously, tires out her
husband and herself and children. There
Is another type of a mother, too, she
who is always working for the church
and civic welfare to the exclusion of
her family, while her husband hungers
and her children go wild on the street."
said Mrs. Stoner. ' "If you can't teach'
your child French or German, exchange
with some one else. l"o some work for
a French woman and let her teach your
child her language."
Teaching children colors at the verv
beginning la another of her plans. The
number of children In a family makes
no difference In regard to their train
ing, and the age of the parents has
nothing to do with their intellect or
physical perfection, and a mother can
make her child what she desires, ac
cording to Mrs. stoner. Mrs. Stoner
has written a number of books for the
aid of mothers and educators. Her
"Book of Knowledge" she uses inces
santly. "Natural Education" and her
book of "Facts in Jingles" are her other

assembly of the association at Los
Angeles, as a commissioner from the

the Evangelical Association In Oregon,
has been the leader for organic union
for the past live years, and attended
the general assembly to urge immediate
action for union. He was given last
Wednesday to address the assembly.
"The assembly gave up Wednesday
night to the question 6f organic union."
said Dr. Poling yesterday, "and I gave
the delegates a view of the attitude
of the Western members of bota
branches of the Evangelical family.
The bishops gave me a close hearing

definite steps for union at this session.
The assembly appointed a commission
of 20 members, who will have power to
