Why the Daughter Disappoints
A mother sometimes fee's disappoint-
ed that her daughter at sixteen <r
eighteen tak^s so little interest in help-
ing her to bear the cares and responsi-
bilities that weigh heavily on the nutti-
er of a housthold. She has patient y
labored many years, and has looked
lorward to the time when she would
have a friend and helper in her daugh-
ter, only to be disappointed. Is the
mother or the daughter to blam ? The
mother conscientiously believeo that
the daughter id to blame. But h not
this fact true: for the daughter of
Bixteen to be an efficient helper the
daughter of ten must be taught and
ailowed to do her part. And this vit-
ally essential point many an energetic
and capable mother forgets. It is
vastly more important that the daugh
ter should enjoy helping her mother,
and gradually form the toabit of taking
a responsible share in household cares,
than that any one thing should be ac
complished in an absolutely perfect
A child is often eager to "help Ma-
ma " Eut the mother discourages her
with, "there, run away; I would rather
do it myself," the experienced woman
forgetting that if the daughter could
do everything as well as her mother
Bhe would be a grown-up woman.
Let us try the experiment of en-
couraging the girl of eight or ten:
thanking her for every effort to be
useful; praising her for all that is good
in her performances; and not blaruing
her for shortcomings which are simply
the result of inexperience. Suppose
Bhe does sometimes burn the toast, or
break a pitcher or forget to dust?
These lapses are not serious; they are
slight misfortunes which are a very
nmall price to pay for the end in view.

tionate and cordial cooperation, and
her training lor h r osen future home
are worth more than a piece of toast
or a bit of china.— El Reno American.

line. The more the farmer tries to
make his pla^e comfortable and at-

being progressive. — Mail and Breeze.

How can a farmer reduce his feeding

By protecting insectivorour birds.
But there are laws to protect the
birds Don't they do it?
Ind- ed they do not. Each farmer

More Improvements-More Tax
I am in receipt of a letter from Mr.
Brown, of Speermore, Okla , which
has in it considerable food for thought
Mr. Brown calls attention to the fact
lhat if the farm boys are kept on the
farm, it must be made attractive for
them, but that under our 1 resent sys-
tem the more a farmer improves the
appearance of his farm, the more he
has to pay in taxes.
If a farmer sets out a grove in order
to make his place look more attractive
the assessor says: "I must assess your
farm higher than your neighbor who
has no grove." Tne farmer asks why
and is told that his farm looks better
and will bring a higher price on ac-
count of that grove. The farmer ad-
mits that the grove might increase the
price of his farm if he wanted to sell
it, but it does not make the land he
cultivates produce any more.
If the farmer paints his his house
and barn and puts up a silo the assess-
or again tells him that he must raise
Panama and the Mississippi
There seems a general and persistent
demand that the organization, equip-
ment and active directing force now
employed at Panama shall be set at
the task of curbing the Mississippi as
soon as the big ditch is finished.
It will be a firht-cla«H enterprise—
provided the calm scietice of army eng-
ineers is allowed to Bay what shall be
done to the great river, as well how to
Experts of the War Department have
already condemned the project of dig-
ging a canal to Bend lake steamers
down the twisting channel of the Miss-
issippi. They have already given their
judgment that, by considering the one
problem of curbing floods, the Mississ-
ippi can be tamed and taught to stay
within its banks for a little over $60,-
000,000. If they can make their pro-
phecy good for twice that sum the na-
tion will be their debtor.
The Journal does not believe that the
Misiissippi River is useless as an aven-
ue of trade. The Journal does not be-
lieve that internal navigation, "refor-
eatat.on" and all other fine schemes
are secondary to the prime need of pro-
tection from floods. When floods are
banished—if banished they may be—it
will be time to consider other matters.
The conquerors of Panama will find a
worthy task in bridling the Mississippi.
