The results of tbeir efforts look rood to them The lopsided box. the crooked sheet of paper, the pritnl- jtive sketches are perfect In their eyes. jWhen you point to them with the finger of scorn, when you laugh at them, 'yon hart the creator of these works to the heart. He put all he had Into ,them and you poke fun at It AM artists, ell craftsmen, work to ! their vision. Before ever a tool touches the material the idea la coin I iplete.

Gradually as his fervor of Imperfection j cools the realization , dawns upon him Another vision Is (born and another work la started It will be started If his spirit la not .crushed. It will not be started If rlll ,cule kills the creative spirit. Teachers and parents often rail to ,get this point of view which Is the .child's very own. To the teacher error standa out like a sore thumb. Parents feel tbe efforts of their children keenly. Tbey struggle along and 'suffer with them. It Is to hide their anxiety and their pain that they so often belittle a child's effort Don't do that Appreciate the work of tbe child's mind and band. Go behind the clumsy effort to the vision the child cherished. So long as his work Is sincere It Is good, You can say so safely. So long as the child cherishes bis vision and struggles to attain It he can be encouraged and praised. Screen his unseasoned spirit from biting sarcasm and the bitterness of ridicule. It la cruel to wound a child through his work. This la true of very little children as well aa older ones. When a child tries to tel' a story and falters, using tbe wrong words, falling to catch bla own Idea firmly enough to express It clearly. It Isn't funny. It la aa great a disappointment to blm aa a bad Investment Is for you and you know how you welcome the sarcasms of your friends on that point Unless you can stand beside the child, unless you can see what be sees and feel as be feels, unless you can understand his Impulse and appreciate bis effort to create and to express, ,you cannot help him. Then at least you need not hurt him. Laughter can be as cruel as a blow and as kind as a caress. CHILDREN J Vv 1 I - "THEY MADE ME" THERE Is any one thing mora IFthan another that makes me long to be Merlin and have the power to change children Into other forms and persons. It Is the cry, "He made me do it" The instant a child says that, he betrays bis weakness, that pitiful weakness that makes him a too) for all who care to use him. It Is useless to scold and fume about It He says that because he Is that kind of a child. We have to seek for some magic that will turn blm Into the other sort of child ; the one who says, "Not me. You can't fool me. Go chase yourself." I am always heartened when a child's mischief or mistakes are positive. When he says. "1 did that. I wanted to see what Old Man Willis would say tf I put a brick through his garage window. Anyway, he's too gay. Calling us names and telling cur fathers on us all the time." don't feel discouraged even when the offense Is worse than that When Roland ran away and bltcb hiked for a week and tbeu wired home, "Send me ticket I'm tired biking. I got a sore foot" He got the ticket and a calm reception. His "Aw. I was tired of hearing her telling me I was left back because I didn't know this or I didn't know that Sure I remembered my mother, but I was coming back. I knew I had no right to use the money for the groceries for myself, but I needed some, and so I just took it along." I can manage all that because It Is direct end positive. There was some thought behind It But when he says. "I was coming home and I met' him and he says to me, 'You gotta come along. I'm going t6 beat It on the freight tonight 1 said I didn't want to go but he made me," I feel sick. I know I have to get out the magic wand and the Incantations and the blue powder and make a magic that will change this child Into a real one with a mind and a purpose and a will. First I call In tbe child specialist, and I give him a list or things which he Is to investigate thoroughly Thla child must have In him somewhere something of strength on which we can build. Then I want to feed him right I want something of the quality of the niotherltig earth to go from them to him. Next 1 want him to live with peo-who are close to what I want him to be.

Scotland, Is beautiful. The city Is a honeycomb of massive stone buildings rising to heights that made it the Manhattan of the Middle ages, some of the walls so thick that long afterward elevators could be Installed without protruding into the rooms. By all precedents and guide books, the Edinburgh visitor should head straight for Castle Hill. But to some, the first thriller they ever read, "Doc tor Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," still is the most vivid tale of Edinburgh. So they hunt out Brodle's Close, dank and dark to this day, though not so as when Its dual denizen. Deacon Brodle, was a Doctor Jekyll by day and a Mr. Hyde by night Pause before entering the close you would call It an alley and the mind's eye converges Into a swift news reel of events along the Royal Mile, into which It opens. Grand Dame Eleanor, countess of Stair, leaps from yonder window (still in full view) to escape a tantrum of husband. her violent, If Down a "wynd" whispers one hag to another gossip from opposite seventh stories, the ancient walls leaning like two Plsas. Dainty Miss Eglintoune, later Lady Wallace, skips across the way to fill a kettle from the community well. Hoydenish duchess of Gordon rides a sow she had captured nnder a neighbor's "forestairs," while her more dignified sister belabors the animal with a stick. Only the backbone street was wide enough for carriages in those days; ladles and gallants were borne In sedan chairs by stout Highlanders Into the side arteries for teas and calls. Burghers' wives, In silks or Scotland's fine wool, shopped for jewels In basement cubbyholes, or bought velvet and laces at tiny booths under roofs of the balconies reached by the peculiar forestairs of nearly every tenement. They were jostled by countrywomen In green and crimson homespun, and by sailors from ships that brought over cattle and tallow from the Low Couutries. The Lawnmarket Sector. Brodie's Close opens now, as then, Into the Lawnmarket sector of the Mile, where Scotland's parliament once ordained "all cotton claith, white and grey; all lynnlng claith is to be sold there and In no other place." Open canvas-toppestalls and booths, dis' playing bolts of cotton and webs of linen, were besieged as are bargain counters today. About you remain the "lands" or tenements of the days when a city wall pressed to an altitude and compactness like the lower East side In New York. Of course, your memory can disregard time and bring events of centuries Into Instant focus. Toddling aristocrats play with racing ragamuffins. They scurry at the approach of a party of Knights of France in glittering armor, their pennants flying, on their way to a tournament to compete for the coveted king's prize, a golden lance. One day Mary, queen of Scots, respirited In spite of her ception at Leith, rides by on a white palfrey, a tiny pearl crown nestling on her hair. Twelve courtiers. In black and crimson, carry a canopy for her. At Netherbow she halts to receive the keys of the city; she extends her little hand for the provost to kiss. The sun suddenly emerges and glistens In her white satin gown. , she utters an Impulsive greeting, "The aun comes out with me, Master Provost." Tlw c"v is hers; from mouth to mouth passes the cry, "God bless her bonnle face." No Place for Night Strolls. Ten o'clock; the tavern and clubs disgorge their crowds. Everybody rushes for home. Up and down the strset rings out the world's most effect tlve curfew the cry, "Gardy-loo- , gardy-loo(gardez I'eau). Down pour swill and garbage from hundreds of tenement windows. It Is a l.iekless citizen who has not reached shelter.

The residents of fashionable St James court were thought very aloof and squeamish when they engaged a private scavenger to remove their refuse. Today all Edinburgh Is equipped with a modern sewage-dispossystem, and even Its narrowest streets are kept immaculate. From Brodle's Close steals a stealthy, sinister figure, all wrapped round In a black coat Beneath Its folds he clutches a pistol and a ring of keys. Furtively he enters this shop and that Earlier in the evening any evening for several years a most respectable town councilor, who also was a deacon of the Guild of Wryghts and Masons, attired in Immaculate tall coat and breeches, might have been seen leaning against a door post where some merchant had trustfully bung his keys while he was at his tavern. Concealed In the palm of his hand was a clay mold. From an impression it was easy to make a key. Robberies became so frequent that the town council called a meeting. Deacon Brodle gravely counseled about ways of stopping the depredations. He thoughtfully advised tradesmen about the kinds of bolts to put on their doors. So realous was he that he even went about while merchants were at dinner to make sure their doors were locked. One night a particularly heinous robbery took place and two culprits were caught A third escaped. Strangely, the highly respectable Deacon Bro-dialso disappeared. Stories went around. Certain cronies whispered how the good deacon gambled with them for high stakes. Two mistresses complained that the kind gentleman had gone away and made no provision for them. Deacon Brodle was apprehended In Amsterdam, lodged in the grim and executed October 1, 1788. His skeleton keys now hung In the Museum of Antiquities. His "strange case" was Immortalized by Stevenson. The fact that he could operate on such a cramped stage, scarcely a twenty-minut- e walk in any direction from his happy family fireside, emphasizes the tremendous crowding of the Old Town. Architecture of Old Times. The Royal Mile, from Castle Hill, through Lawnmarket, High street and Canongate, Is clean today, but Its tenements are Just as crowded, and they Justify the modern Implication of the term, for wealth and fashion have migrated to the broad streets and state ly squares of the New Town. There remain the molded doorways, armorial bearings, crests and texts, the peak gables, the Intricately carved finlals, the mammoth locks and door handles, and the exterior forestairs, leading up one Sight to the Interior "turnpike" stairs to the floors above. One architectural feature Is pus sling. In some houses there appears a slit much narrower than other windows. Inspection discloses thxt these apertures light tiny closets opt o ng off the dining rooms. They were retreats for the head of the house, where he might perform his devotions. From Lawnmarket It Is only a short walk to Castle Rock, whence Edinburgh was hewn, which anchored the Old Town, which uplifts the castle whose history spans half the world. Standing guard over the opposite end of Princes street from Castle Rock In Calton Hill, affording a view that reaches out to Fife and the Ochlls. Calton Is dotted with an amazing col lection of monumental and architectural curiosities which, somehow, seem to achieve harmony. Beside the Incomplete Parthenon of Craigleith columns, there Is a Nelson monument that shelters a museum ; homely Holibie Bums is awarded a copy of the chnraglc temple of Lysl crates; a high school reproduces the Temple of Theseus at Athens; there also are an observatory, a burying ground, the tombs of Hume and of Stevenson's parents, and a Jnlll Gazing in another direction from Calton Hill, the eye catches tone!) IMyrood, aloof from the city, trouct leg under the mighty shadows of Sa: lsbury fags. of-hi- s Tol-boot- story about a man THERE is antheoldworld over in search of the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow, who, upon returning home tired, weary and discouraged, found the gold under bis doorstep. This fable applies in fact to thousands of farmers, farm women and children who have taken fa1- - shots at unseen markets away over the hills, and upon failing to get profitable prices, discovered even better markets at their door or within easy distance. Good roads, the automobile, parcel post, express, city markets and the desire of tbe consumer for fresu, quality food have not only shortened the route to market for thousands of tons of products of the farm, home and garden, but have brought millions of extra dollars to thousands o; farms. Approximately a million farm people sell $200,000,000 worth of produce of the farm, borne, garden, foiests and wild rural districts direct to the consumer. In some cases this market provides the entire farm income, in others it greatly supplements the money brought in by the major farming activity, even though in no way related. There seems to be no end to what consumers will buy from farmers. And by the same token there are very few farms on which something to sell cannot be raised. Roadside marketing is the largest of the direct selling outlets. Stands located on main traveled highways do not have to bunt up customers. Hundreds and thousands pass daily; but it Is up to the farmer to make them stop. It Is being done by thousands of farm folks In all parts of the country. In Michigan, on a 10 mile section of highway, more than half the 39 farms on the road sold direct to the consum er. These producers, according to a comparison of returns when produce Is sold direct and marketed through regular channels, got GO cents of the consumer's dollar. The farmers who sold on the terminal outlets received but 19.4 cents. The difference, despite a higher labor charge for roadside markets, came In the elimination of transportation and other charges for getting food from the farm to consumer. Figures show the cost of distributing food at the end of 1932 was 47 per cent higher than before the war while the farm price of food was 43 per cent lower than the same period. Surveys of roadside marketing have been made In many states for the information of farm folks who want to market all or part of their produce in this way. In Ohio, for Instance, 1,700 odd markets were located on 2,800 miles of state road. The average business of each stand was slightly over $1,700, ranging from several hundred dollars to many thousand, depending upon products handled and length of the selling season. In addition to roadside markets, another profitable local outlet Is the town retailers. The consumer demand for home-growproducts is good, so surveys have indicated. And this is not patriotism entirely. City people realise that the nearer the source of supply, the fresher the food. Mrs. R. L. Simerson, living several miles outside of the village of North Carolina, supplies retail stores In six cities with fruit vegetables, chickens, eggs, milk and buttermilk to the tune of $2,500 a year. All of this food Is produced in ber garden and home without any estra help. When a Waterloo (Iowa) grocer asked W. S. Brown to bring in more of the kind of eggs he had been delivering, he said they had made a decided hit with his customers and that he could use many more than Brown was supplying. So Brown called together SO of his neighbors who were working with the extension specialist In poultry, and they formed an association. Each farmer graded and packed his own eggs In cartons which bore the association name. On the bottom of each box a number was stamped as a means of Identification in event of None were made becomplaints. cause of the good handling and frequent deliveries of the eggs which brought a premium of 5 cents a dozen to the farmers. J. P. Nelson of Stillwater, Minn., Is a dairyman who likes to play golf, Dairying is a Job which allows little or no time for play; but Nelson, thanks to a change In marketing, not only plays golf when he wants to but Increased his milk Income by 2" per cent Whipping cream, sold to local retailers. Is the answer. Elmer L. Rhodes of Abilene. Kan., finds selling to retnllers permits a better distribution of labor In the production of crops he sells over his roadside market and in growing other things for sale later in the year. Early crops, too small for roadside marketing and ready before customers start coming to the roadside market, find good prices in town. Stores pay him twice as much for early asparagus as he can command when the roadside stand Is open and production Is gen eraL Sweet corn and tomatoes, too, are sold to stores ln large amounts so as to give Rhodes time to cultivate other crops which need Intensive at tent Inn at that time. Later, when the roadside season Is open, the same retailers buy potatoes and horse -ndish put np In half pint bottles. In Answers. OBEDIENT Ouch!
