Tde Great Value of the Mothers'
This is a day when Intelligent
j o: gal . at .'11- ble: iImi- o'' forces
and an amalgamation of li. various
ami iutPirral parts receive thought-
ful consideration at the minds of
thoughtful men and women. It is a
day when our public hcIiooI system Li.
no closely Interwoven with the hom.j
system until the ono becomes a
part und a counterpart of the other.;
Tim minds of children are easily im-
pressed but the mind of the aver-
ago chiM tends with much mora
easiness to tin; rough and uncouth!
than it does to tho cultured and
refined. This is not to he wondered
at for it is nature. For years aud
j ears and then some years our!
I'ublic schools have been run very (
much as r eleemosynary lnstitu-j
lions. Children have been sent tO(
school but there was not that vital1

er that was so much needed In or-
der that the schools might meet!
and fulfill their well ordained pur-
pose. It is not necessary nor is
my purpose in this article to go
back over history and bring up the
practices of the past but it Is myj
purpose and I have a very keen de-
sire to express the very keen ap-
preciation of the e!Tort3 of the
American women to get in closer
touch with the school system and
and greatly taxed teachers and edu-
ucational institutions. This need has
long been felt and now that the
thoughtful American mothers are
joining hands with our over-worked
and greatly taxtd teachers and ed-
eators we. may look for better and
happier conditions all along tho lines.
Hut there is still a want still a
great felt want an-J that in the city
of Ardmore a want that is far
reaching and of tremendous need
the want of more mothers to assisi
in the workings of the MOTHERS'
As above said tho mind of the
average child is easily impressed
for and towards tho wrong. Now
this is not to bo wondered at nor
are we to Fie amazed t tho rapid
strides mad! n-l progrw by unu- j
right'MJumi.'ss and cotubullvt?asa.
la our boms vbich Ls tho cradle
uf thought te talk too much of
things unkind and deal too much in
i he trhoious and light but the most
hurtful thing Oh! the most hurtful
thing in the home life of today is
the discussion around the fireside
and tho dinner Ublc of the unpleas-
ant occurrences and fistlve combats
pistol duels assassinations and mur-
ders. Our papers our great daily
papers give special space and
flowing headlines thus giving spe-
cial advertisement and tremendous
prestige to acts of rape and seduc-
tion. This Is not amazing nor is
it hard to understand our papers try
to meet the wants of their patrons
and read" rs and it is the want of
most readers that these things be
given special publicity. It is a com-
mon practice aiKl one that can only
be overcome by thoughtful careful
parental discipline. Things worth
while and things that are really up-
lifting in both scope thought anil
matti r are passed by unnoticed and
the criminal side of life is unfurled
in great ado and much comment in
the average home circle. In con-
nection with this there are often-
time pictures brilliantly gilded of
marine battles and bloody conflicts
at the point of bayonet and swonJ
at the hands of the militia. Our
country will never be what it ought
to be our children will never bo
atuned as they ought to be atuned
till these things give way to things
of pleasantness and love. How much
better it would be Oh how r.rrh
better I would be for the present
general ion how much l etter for the
generations that will follow In the
wake of this generation if the tur-
tle dove the olive loaf and the
child in its evening prayer fill con-
spicuous places over fire and aroun-J

As above referred to the pressing
need is for co-operation between the
home and the school and as tho
mothers of this city have Inaugurat-
ed what they choose to denominate
a Mothers' Club the purpose of
which is to bring about a complete
understanding and glorious unity
between the home and the school it
should it appears to us have the
unqualified endorsement of every cit-
izen of the city and the unbroken
attendance of the patrons of the
Ardmore Thurdy Doc t$ 191
The Mothers' Club of tho Fourth
Ward are we are told going to eu-
tertain their teachers and friends in
the auditorium of the Fourth Ward
school building this evening and if
the work done and the efforts madu
by these noble sacrificing women
was known there would be a re-
sponse in attendance beyond tha
capacity of the Fourth Ward school
May their efforts be crowned with
success may their number groV
larger may the blessings of God bo
showered upon them.
