The Best Remedy For Croup.
From the Atchison, Kan., Dally
Thl la the season when the woman
who knows the best remedies for ornup
Is In demand In every neighborhood.
One of the most terrible things Id the
world Is to be awakened in the miaaie
of the night by a whoop from one ot
the children. The eroup remedies are
almost as sure to be lost, In case of
oroup, as a revolver is sure to be lost In
case of burglars. There used to be an
oldfashloued remedy for eroup, known
as bive syrup and tolu, but some mod
ern mothers say that Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy Is better, and does not
cost so much. It causes the patient to
'throw up the phlegm" quicker, and
gives relief In a shorter time. Give
this remedy as soon as the oroupy
oough appears and It will prevent the
attack. It never falls and is pleasant
to take. For sale by Kirkland Drug

Dated this 19th day of Novem
Reports from Parker and LewU
ville show that the recent wind
ttorm there did much damage.
To be good, is not enouh; one
should be good for something.
Likewise for a child to be, obedient
is not all that is necessary; he
should obey implicitly and in
stantly, for there is no true obedi
ence except it be absolute.
To obtain such obedience is not
difficult if the right start is made.
Make a child look you in the eye
before beginning to give instruc
tions. Many times a child does
not do as he has been commanded
simply because he did not under
stand half that was said to him, or
perhaps half understood. First
see that you are understood; then
enforce instant obedience. Allow
ing a child to take its time, when
given a command only encourages
the natural desire to take its own
way, as well, which is seldom the
same as your way, which in the
end causes friction between parent
' One of the best ways to. keep
your little ones respect and obtain
obedience without ill humor, is to
be reasonable at all times and to ex
plsin your motives to the one that
is to follow your commands. A
child understands many times as
Ann All it Wins to talk even a

promise a child anytning wun-
out keeping your word. Bro
en promises destroy a child's con
fidence in and respect for an elder
more quickly than any other one
ra nl i that nan be made. If a re
ward is promised, grant it; if a
whipping has been merited and
threatened, keep your word. You
will retain your child's respect by
arindin? bv vour promise. Do not
be repeatedly saying '"Do this" or
"Don't do that," if you wish to
have happy, sweet tempered child
ren, for "nagging" would turn a
