Badies axd Krrncx. Sydney Smith, somewhere
says that-no house is perfect that does not contain a
b'aby and it kitten. AV ith this I rather agree. There
is a wonderful kind of ehcericess in & home that;
counts these amongst It treasures ; and underlying
each, there Is much that is hidden. A baby implied
much expectation, mingled hopes and fears, anxious
guesses, joyous castle-building, diligent preparation.
Then thcro is the joy when it arrives, the thankful
neas that all is well, the new arrangements to bo
made In the household, the queer mistakes if it be
the first the ups and downs in the frail, early life of
the little creature. On this follows tbe strange link
ing in of that helpless being into all tho life of tha
parents. How wondrously does It expand the heart,
and purify and raise the affections, and add new mo
tives of action to tho life. And as the babe grows
oat of babyhood, still how tbo babyhood time is kept
in memory, and its little nameless incidents cherish
ed in the family traditions. There seems still to be
a baby, when the living fact is no longerfound. And
a grand story lingers around tho kitten In Ihe family.
Pethaps it is found some day in the garden, a poor,
stray waif. Pethaps it is born on the premises, and
one day appears, to the perfect wonderment of tbo
family. Then how many pleasures quiokly surround
it, and of what future hopes does it soon become tha
centre In the nursery. Bat around this anxieties
cluster. Kittens do not come singly. Most parents
object to the whole brood being kept. Then arises
the diCculty; what is to be done with those not want
ed? It Is a moment the father looks forward to with
dread, but one which he has to face. It requires a
good share of moral courage. At length he proposes
three oat of four should bo drowned. Ho knows bow
this proposal wilt be met. lie shrinks from the re
proachful looks, from, the muttered surprise, from tho
low esteem to which bis character for kindness must
sink for the timo. He can realize the hesitation of
the child as she pointed at last io the twins in the
cradle, and picked out the one she would like to be
kept. But at last it is over, and the one kitten spar
ed so absorbs the attention and love of the children
that all the sad past is forgotten, and the father reaches
to his usual place in their eyes. The graceful gam
bols, tbe winning ways, and pretty tricks of the kit
ten, these make gladnesi by thehappy fireside.. Yes,
baby and kitten are grand institutions in a bo'use.
The Scotch and the Spaniards bare hitherto divided
the credit of possessing the largest store of proverbial
wisdom, but, were the literature of Russia more widely
known, she might prove a formidable rival either to
tha land of oatmeal or that of oranges. We give a
few specimens, which, on account of their pointed
terseness, their quaint, homely vigor, and dry, Sancbo
Panza satire, scarcely need the aid of rhyme to re
commend them. They are, indeed, more fully than
words can express, the faitblul mirror of the sbrcwu,
simple, dogged, humorous Russian mind, ever veiling
its natural keenness under a mask of habitnal and
impenetrable stolidity; "Every fox praises his own
tail." "Go after two wolves, and yoa will n6t even
catch one." " A good beginning is half the work."
"Trust in tiod, but do not stumble yourseir.
"With God, even across tbe sea ; without him not
even to the threshold." " Without cheating, not lad
ing." " Money is not God, but it shows great mer
cy." "The deeper you hide anything the sooner yoa
find it' " If God don t forsake us, the pigs will
not take ns." " A debt Is adorned by payment."
" Rocuery is the last of trades." " Xevcr take tbe
crooked path while you can see a straight one."
' iear net tbe threats or the great, bat rather the
ears of the poor." " Ask a pig to dinner, and he
will pot his feet on the table." " Disease comes in
by hundred weights, and goes out '-by ounces."
"Every little frog is great in his own bog." "An
old friend is worth two new ones." "Be praised
net for your ancestor, but for vourvrtu.e." "Whoo
fish are rare, even a crab is a fish." " A father's
blessing cannot be drowned in water, nor consumed
by fire. ' " Hi who honors his parent shall endnre
forever." " A mother's prayers will draw up from
the depths, of the sea."
Westeimt Cities. A creat conflict is coins: on be
tween Chicago and St. Loots for commercial suprem
acy. The facts elicited in tbe controversy may serve
for many purposes, bat are fully competent to estab
lish a healthy condition at both of these great eentres,
and so, necessarily, in the region each supplies, and
In western business generally.
We see by tbe returns that Chicago last year re

an increase of cent. The St Louis shipments
of wheat, too, increased about 200 cent. The St.
Louis receipts are really wonderful, and amount to
twice as much as those of Chicago in actual gain.
The reason is probably to be found in the efforts of
the grain association and the reopening of river com
merce and greater trade with the south and west.
In the manufacture of floor, too, St. Louis last
year increased I0G.007 barrels, or 12 cent-, while
Chicago fell off 132.585 barrels, or nearly a quarter.
The statistics of the flour trade shows tbat Chicago
increased her receipts 6 cent., and Had 2,2H,E03
barrels ; bat she diminished 3 'jj cent, in her exports,
whereas St. Louis gained 40 p cent. In receipts and
42 in export. Reducing both to wheat, and sum
marizing tbe returns, St. Louis seems to have gained
4253 cent., and Chiaago from 101S cent.
Both cities received materially small amounts of other
grain St. Louis 370,000 bushels less of corn, 159,000
of oats. 10Q,000of rye ; and Chicago 2,000,000 of corn,
4,000,000 of oats, and 400,000 of rye. The pork bus
iness shows that St. Louis cat 182,913 hoes last year.
against 180,930 in 1803, and Chicago 337,656, against,
097.V51 the previous season.
These facts Indicate a healthy and rapid recovery
in St. Louis, and the foundation of a futnre trado
Ibat may male her prosperity rival that of any city.
Bat Chicaca is by no means injured on examinatlen.
Xotwithstanding the prosperity of this one of hermany
rivals, it is in the fact that she continued to grow in
departments particularly challenged, while it has to
be added that her manufactures footed up $58,000,000 ;
tbat she received $115,652,000 of commodities ; that
her wholesale trade was $369,935,530, the net income
$73,000,000 ; and 3423 new buildings were erected.
For. when trade Is dull, Chieaeo makes it, and when
it is quick, improves it to tbe uttermost St. Louis is
learning from Chicago. Front 1S60 to 18C9 she suf
