A nursery kept trim and tidy, with plenty of shelves and drawers nd boxes .to keep things in, with ooks for clothing within the child's each, is essential to making him ake orderliness for granted. On the other hand, a nursery irowded with furniture and too many possessions is. almost sure to rain a child to become accustome.1 o confusion. Closets and bureau drawers should contain only such clothing as is-in regular use. Toys which have been outgrown should be removed. Children naturally like orderliness. They like seeing the same arrangements day after day and finding their possessions always in the same place. Frequent changes in sleepin^ place, lack of a proper place in which tq keep toys and changes generally in the child's physical en vironment disturb and distress him Of course he may become used to these things in time, but in so do ing he loses his natural interest in keeping things in order and in put ting them where they belong. In training for orderliness moth ers are apt to make tho mistaue of expecting^ too much. A two or three year old may have taken great pleasure in getting all his blocks out of the box, but putting them all back again is too long anr wearisome a task. Children need help and reminding It is better to do most of the chores for them than to allow them to acquire a distaste for the task because they had to carry it thru after they were tired.
