in raising the skirts high enough to kepp

Don't Rock the Baby.
If "all the ultimate conequences of one's
acts are to be laid to his charge. the man
who invented rocking cradeh for children
rests under a fearful load of responsibility.
The down-right murder of tens of thousands
of infants, and the weakened brain of hun
dreds of thousands of adults, are undoubted
results of his invention. To rock a child
in a cradle, or swing him in a crib, amounts
to just tlii3 : tht rapid molion disturls the
nattiral floic of the blood, and produces
xlupor or droirziness. Can any body suppose
for a moment that such an operation is a
healthful one ? Fvery one knows the dizzy
and often sickening effect of moving rapidly
in a swing ; yet wherein does this differ from
the motion a child receives when rocked in
a cradle. It is equivalent to lying in a ship
leith during a violent storm, and that sick
ns nine people out of ten. A very gentle,
low motion, may sometimes be sooiliing
though always of doubtful expediency, but to
move a cradle as rapidly as the swing of a
yendulum three feet long, that is once in a
econd, is positive cruelty. AYe always feel
hkegrasping and staying the aim of the
mother or nurse who, to secure quietude,
swings the cradle or crib with a rapidity
-qual to that of a pendulum a foot long.
If any mother is disposed to laugh at our
uggestions, or consider them whimsical, we
beg of her to have a bed or cot hung on
coids, then lie down in it herself, and have
some one swing it with the same rapidity
that she allows the cradel to be rocked.
What she will experience in bolh head and
stomach is just what lhe infant experiences.
We insist that this rccking of children Is
a useless Itabit. If not accustomed to rock
ing, they will go to sleep quite as well when
lying quietly, as when shaken in a cradle. If
they do not, there is trouble from sickness,
or hunger, or more likely from an over-load-ed
stomach ; and though the rocking may
produce a temporary stupor, the trouble is
made worse thereafter by the unnatural
means taken to produce quiet for the time
being. American Agricvllurisf.
