Cottage street, Salem.)
"The home is the fountain of
spiritual life. It is there that the
mother teaches the child his first
lesson! she is his first edncator.
She teaches him for longer pe
riods daily, over a longer period of
years and with the aid of more
natural forces than does any oth
"To me, a mother above all oth
ers, should he a devoted Chris
tian and ask God daily "how shall
I lead my darling in the way of
truth and happiness?" Its life
is given to us pure and great and
It Is our responsibility to keep it
so. If we could place mothers
where they will honestly face this
responsibility, we will have done
more for the cause of Christian
education than has yet been ac
complished. "To me a mother should be a
companion for her children there
by gaining their confidence and
keeping It. When a child hears
something and he is not certain
as to whether or not it is true,
how quickly it will se,ek its moth
er and listen for the truth. How
sad to see a mother vho would
not guard every step to make that
life what God would have it be.
"The sainted mother of Fran
ces E. Wlllard was asked what
she would have done differently
as a mother jf she had her life to
live over again, and she replied,
"I Would praise more and blame
"To me, mpther's love is next
to God's. A mother may be .deep
ly wounded by her child, yet there
is the great love in her heart
ready to respond to its wants.
Christ says, "I never -will leave
thee nor forsake thee." Just so
with the mother and the child;
no matter what It may do as a
child or what he may do when
to manhood he has grown, she
may reprove him, but she will
never leaye him nor forsake him.
"Though all the world forsake
him I will pick him up.
"A child should be taught ober
dience. . As God's ' children, we
loose great blessings by being
disobedient to God's laws. Just
so with the child, it looses respect
for Its parent when it is permitted
to disobey. Its mother should be
kind and patient, but firm in the
discipline of her child.
"What is there about a tiny bit
of pink fresh to hold one in a bond
as nothing else can do? What is
there in the touch of a tiny fin
ger, light as the falling of a rose
to thrill heart like a magnet?
What is yiere in the velvet pres
sure of a tiny face that brings
such delights as no other exper
ience can do? Why has the tiny
body, fragrant and fair, the pow
er to draw out the heart aches
and fill it with such unexplainable
delights as it cuddles down to rest
next to ones heart? What is the
strange mystery that hangs like a
fair cload about this tiny strang
er, so recently come from the far
country to dwell with you in this?
Why does it make the father for

mother smile so at the death shar

In.; the April Popular. Science
Monthly, measures the dilation of
the pupil of the human eye in its
reaction to various emotions. The
subject sits in a dark room, his
eyes pressed against a sort of ster
eoscope, and looks into a large
box covered with black cloth. A
cap is. fitted over his head, keep
ing his eyes fixed on the lenses.;
Strapped over , his chest is a pneu
mograph to record his breathing.
Over the left wrist-is a rubber,
sack enclosed in a cloth band.
This , measures the pulse.
. Facing the subject is an exper
imenter, who observes the pupils
of his eyes. The lenses are cross
ed with fine hair-lines, so that the
width and height of the pupils can
be measured exactly, and the
changes are recorded by-adjust-ing
screws on a small dial. Th3
motions of the screw are set down
on a rotating cylinder. The var

that make marks on the drum as
it goes around.
