The inevitable 'reaction between f BOY OF 13 SAVES THREE BABES
the baby and the house full of stairs
and sharp corners and things he
"mustn't touch", cause most of the
baby's woes andtroubles. And in
this house, in no way built for it, the
baby is taken care of, not by experts
trained in this most important work
in all the world, but by servants.
Sometimes the servant is a hired one,
and almost invariably of a lower or
der of ability for the work than the
average mother, for we are so mor
bidly afraid of dictation that we hire
subordinates and trust to Providence
that it will be all right.
Babies are a permanent popula
tion, transient in families, but per
manent in the world, so we must not
altogether forget the baby when we
build houses for grownups.

lives to the bravery of Austin Thorn- .

have made application for a Carnegie
medal for him. '
Austin, aged J.3, was alone with the
children. He had put the baby to
sleep in a bedroom on the.upper floor,
and was studying his lessons when a
cloud of smoke rolled by the window.
An overheated stovepipe had set fire
to flooring and sidewalls.
Dashing back into the house, the
boy plunged up the stairs through
thick smoke, grabbed up the baby ,
from its bed and ran to the room '
where his two little brothers were.
playing. HeS got them all out in safe
ty, took the baby to a neighbor's
home, ran back to the house, and
when the firemen arrived they found
him inside, fighting the fire with
buckets of water.
The fire chief had to carry-him out ,
of the house." Hib hands vere burned '
