stranger they are always an indication of the social level from which the children spring At camp their table manners tell he story to the adults who live with Lhem Betty puts half a potato into ler mouth and talks thru it Neither please nor thank you embellish ler responses jio matter what the or the favor received Tom screams for attention and gesticulates with a fork on which its food is already speared Nancy says please and passes on to her neighbor the dish from which she has just helped herself She uses her napkin and does not talk with her mouth full Elsie slouches over her food arms Brawled over the tpble while she 3icks up her meat in her fingers rier place at table becomes a verit able trough before the meal is over Joan on the other hand actually Breaks her bread before she butters t She eats what is set before her and talks agreeably on subjects other than meals past and present Do you wish your children to have such manners as will reflect a mannerly home Then be sure that your family knows you as a gracious and courteous person not only when there are guests for tea but also across the everyday breakfast table and in the routine occurrences of home No matter how busy and hard working you are you still can find time for the small niceties of life It you permit yourself to become lax in these matters be sure that it is your lax moments which the chil dren will imitate It Is worth a good deal to your child to be so well man nered that never will a stranger be forced to wonder what sort of home the child comes from HAHNDEEDRICH LU VERNE Evan gelical
