Scope and content

Sidney and Islands Review, '“For Mothers”, 11 February 1915, Page 3.

“For Mothers
Not having a special department for mothers the editor is compelled to put in the general columns this bit of exclusive information which came to him unexpectedly one day this week.
It is a scientific truth that if a man, or a child, keeps his head cool and ills feet warm he will not often suffer illness. That is why mothers worry when their youthful offspring come in from the streets with shoes and stockings soaked in the chilly water that gathers in puddles during the winter months. Many times have mothers made exclamation somewhat after the following style: ‘I do believe that child deliberately picks out the wettest places to walk through.’
While they say this they do not as a rule honestly believe it, but express in this emphitle way their provocation that their children appear to make no distinction between wet and dry places. What happened in front of the Review office on Saturday morning sheds some light on this phase of child psychology.
There is a puddle directly opposite the editor’s window. On Saturday morning a Chinaman and a wee Chinese boy, perhaps three, perhaps four years old, passed by. Directly at the puddle the kiddie stopped. Fascinated he gazed at the glittering liquid, then before his father could interfere with an ecstatic cry he jumped both little feet into the air and came down with a mighty splash fairly in the middle of the puddle. The look of heavenly joy and complete satisfaction which overspread that wee China boy’s face was the most thoroughly happy expression the editor ever saw on a human being’s countenance.
The deduction is that the distracted mothers are right when they assume that their children like the wet spots.”
