It is important; to find out whether the child is afraid of the dark, of thunder, or, of sudden noises. It is Dick lias been making a dam, and Daisy playing house in the yard.

Some observers are convinced that ( practically all people who have diffi- 'culty.in speaking display disturbance of the normal rhythm of breathing; in other words, they cannot co-ordinate 'the manlier in which they breathe •with ^their ability to speak. Sometimes* training in propper breathing exercise will help to relieve such people of a good deal of their trouble. It has been found, incidentally, that a great many children who stutter or stammer are -members of families in which other children have the same trouble ,or in which the father or mother has had the same trouble. •While some hereditary difficulty of structure may be partly responsible, one must also investigate the likelihood of imitation and the possibility 'of wrong instruction in speech during childhood. One of the most unusual facts about stammering is the way in which some peopfe are able to get along without stammering when they whisper, or iing, or recite poetry, or speak to a large' audience, but have difficulty xinder other conditions. In modern attempt to control stam- -mering, certain psychological methods have been found to great value. One is the teaching of relation, the other is re-education and control of the emotions, and the third is the power of suggestion. If tiie child can be suitably encouraged when it is making progress, it will certainly be helped. The practice of speaking slowly or rhythmically is frequently of great service in controlling the condition. This Book Tells of Tragedy of Unwanted Parents By BRUCE CATTON "Years Are So Long," by Josephine Lawrence, is a strong and unpleasant novel about the dilemma of the old folks in modern society. puttin' the cart bsfore the mule.'

Now Daisy:—"If that kid comes around again and butts in when we're playing, you come out, won't you, Mother, and send her home, I slap- i ped her once and she just hangs 'round now and stares." Cult of Hate Slang? Yes, but mothers get used to that with a family of children. They have to expect a bit of it. It was something else that bothered this lady. Vulgarity? Yes, again, but the trouble lies still deeper as a happen to know. The real poison lies in the cult of hate these youngsters have picked up young. The remarks are fictitious, but I know the children and the above is typical of the way they think, talk and act. Bob's hasekatetbutg-nnd'smcoS Bob's hate takes the form of resentment over anything that curbs his idea of privilege, Betty's a cruel humor, Dick's a traitorous jealousy, and Daisy's spoiled selfishness and meanness.

"Jane wants to sc«j Nancy," tie said, "hut I don't j tnow—" j "Why do you want to see her?''! asked Amy. "Why didn't you lei me know yon were coming?" They were waiting. Jane mustj win them, nnd particularly Howard It she could do that bo would Influence Amy. She answered, pr& lending humility, "I was afraid you'd hide lier from me. I do want to POO her, Amy. That's natural isn't it?" Howard answered for Amy nnd his voice was cool. "It's rather l)& lar,ed, Jano. You gave the child tc Amy absolutely and promised not to claim her. Now, if you're not going to keep that promise, we'll have to think things over. So first of all. we want to know I! that's In the back of your mind?" "No, It Isn't." said Jane, etll! more humbly. "The child belongs to yon nnd Amy. i mean It. 1 won't make a scene—" she glanced up, faintly smiling. She felt that Howard was melt ing but she went on to Amy: "You know how awful everything was for me when 1 gave her to you, and you were ao wonderful to take her—that was the one comforting thing out of that horrible time— I'd never have forgiven myself l! I'd bave let some stranger aclopi hc.r. I must have been out of mj mind. I've been so ashamed, at awfully ashamed. I know yoi despise me!" "I don't despise you," said Amy "and neither does Howard.

As she followed Ainj she noticed that the house was nc better furnished than the first time she had seen it. Amy opened a door. "This h the nurseJT," she said. "And this is Nancy." She hesitated, then added: "I must bring up her sup per, Jane—you go ahead and. speali to her: She won't be shy!" She ran down to where Howard •was standing uneasily in the living room. "I left them alone, Howard. 1 didn't want to hear Jane wltfc her—at first, I mean. It's all right, don't you think? She means It about not taking her? I won't give Nancy up, no matter what line she tries." She put her bead agalnsl his shoulder to be reassured. "She'd better mean it. And I'm sure she does, sweet She doesn't j want to start any scandal and she I doesn't want to take on the cart of a child, either." "But Nancy's so darling, How ard; H makes me uneasy, I can'l help it." "Don't worry. She's not going to have Nancy. Not If 1 have to beat her over the head with the poker and throw her out on the pavement. Not now, or any time." Upstairs Jane was looking at hei child with surprised disappointment. She had expected, from egotism rather than reason, that Nancy would be movingly beautiful, a small replica of herself a1 her best. She was not. To Jane'f eyes she -was not even pretty. The little girl was sitting on the hearth rug, her cheeks flushed from the heat ot the fire. She was already In her nightgown. Hei bed, covers turned down, waited In the corner, and near her was the low table for her supper, witli Amy's chair beside It. Solemn and wide-eyed, she returned Jane's gaze and because Jane was a strangei remarked politely. "Ha-yo," add Ing, after a second, "Were mj muwer?" "She's coming," said Jane, feel ing perfectly Idiotic. "You—you're Nancy, I suppose." She thought "and why did they ever give her that name! I always detested It! Nancy! Such a silly-soundlng name!" She advanced cautioiiBli and sat down 1n Amy's chair, which! roused Nancy's expectance. "Riip-| per?" she aslted, scrambling up. i • • • ' CHE was tall for her age, but *-^ Jane did not know that. She! seemed very small, tier hair wa. c | curly and light, her eyes darkj blue. | Nancy settled down again since I tiie stranger had offered no supper. She had another rag doll, a little' more battered than the one down i stairs, and she began to rock it and sing to It in a wordless lium-j ming which stopped as Amy camcj In with a tray. j "Oh Jane, was she singing?" eaid Amy. excitedly.

Her teeth have come through evenly so far and did yon notice her hands and feet, nnd her lashes?" Jane did not answer. She leaned back and looked around the room. It was very plain-looking, almost poor. But there was something here and In the whole house—Amy had It, too, Amy In her shabby dress — something balanced and warm and restful and well ordered. » • • . : TTER gaze came back to the child. •*"*• Nancy had finished her .'supper and her head was drooping. "She's ready for bed," said Amy. Then. with an effort, "Jane—wouldn't you like to kiss her goodnight?" "Well—yes—" She didn't especially want -to, and the kiss was rather awkward, but Jane vtns sur? prised by the fragile softness ot the cheek and the delicious fresh orris and violet flower smeil ot/it. "Why, Isn't sho. sweet!" she. exclaimed. "She is sweet," said Amy. "And she's the most loving and gentle haby!" She tucked Nancy In, opened the Window ventilator, pushed the screen tight before the fire. "But she's got a temper, too," Back In the living-room again with Howard, Jane pulled herself together, but she felt constrained and did not know how to begin what she wanted to say, but she certainly wasn't going to leave without making Howard really look at her and think of her. "Yon'v* been wonderful to her," she began tentatively, "I wish—I wish you'd let me (Jo something for her, give her something, too." "It would be better all around it you didn't do that," said Howard. "We'd rather not." Ah, now he must at least argue with -her. But why? and we £ welt look nt the practical ot things. As she grows older there'll be a sood bit ot expense schools and college anrl so on. Why shouldn't I establish a—a fund—to —to help with all that? I'd—I'd love to—" "No," saltl Amy. "We'll manage to Bivo Nancy sufficient education, nnd anyway that's a long time nheml." Jane still spoke to Howard: "You ilon't want her to have anything from me? That isn't kind, that Isn't fnlr.
