It is not strange that a son of David Bhould have had a clear understanding of the grief a foolish child causes those who gare him life. Many a time those pitiful words must have rung in Solo? mon's ears, "O, ray son Absaloml Would God I had died for thea." And perhapte, too, Solomon's knowledge of the self-confident nature of hil own heir may have added a touch of bitter? ness to the words he speaks concern? ing the relation between parents and children. One of the commonest wayo in which modern young poople fail to show honor to their parents is by withhold? ing their confidence.

KIPLING ANECDOTE WRECKED. Kipling has described the travels of a plausible lie that has been properly launched and the difficulty of overtak? ing it with a denial. Now a blt of fiction that has been going the rounds for several years as. a Kipling anecdote has just been denied by his father. According to this story Mr. Kipling, senior, and his son went on a sailing voyage together when Rudyard Kip? ling was a boy. The father was lying sick in his cabin when an officer ap? peared and said: "Mr. Kipling, your son has climbed out on the foreyard, and if he lets go he will surely be drowned, and we can not save him." "Oh, is that all?" said Mr. Kipling. '?Don't worry. He won't let go." Mr. Kipling, senior, is quoted by an English paper ss saying: "The only time that I made a voy? age with Rudyard was when he was 12 years old, and that was between Dover and Calais, going to the Paris Eihibition. I am never sick at sea, and on our steamship I don't think there was a foieyard or a bowsprit...
