Tun nls and Children. Prof. Felix Adler, in (ho course of a lecture said that the gift of children tended to moral elevation. The man who desired to see his children grow up better than him nclf would not fail to improve his own life and character, so as to set them a good example. If a parent sought to curb the angry passions of a child, that parent would most carefully guard against any ebulli? tion of temper, such as would set au evil example. If it was sought to have the children avoid slander, no encouragement at the table or in the parlor would be given to those who meet only to rend their neigh? bor's character. Avoided would be the feasts of those moral cannibals who feed upon the reputations of ethers. The moral nature and individual? ity of children, Professor Adler continued, should be carefully stu? died and respected. They are, it is true, bone of our bone and flesh our flesh, but we are only the chan? nels through which the river of life is transmitted to them. Some pa...
