ADVANTAGES OF BARE FEET.
Are llir Children of lheTliiir'llrrsel
Visitors to Scotland used to be horrified
on seeing so many children running
nbout burefooted. ltare feet arc
Icis common now than they were a
(Feneration ago, nnd perhaps the
change, while showing a growing prosperity
in the nation, Is not altogether
to be recommended. Children's feet
grow so fast that to keep them always
properly shod Is u matter that requires
ronsldcrnble care nnd some expend!
ture. It matters very little to a child's
future well-being that at some period
of Its childhood the slerves of a Jacket
have been too short or the skirt of a
frock too scant; but the compression
of feet In loots too tight, or, even
worse, too short, may be a cause of torment
in future years. Infinitely better
nre bare feet than clumsy, heavy, 111-
shapen boots. In the winter the feet
may indeed wont some protection from
cold nnd wet, but during a great part
of the year children may safely and
healthfully go barefooted.
Some mothers, by no means u.'the
poorest class, are convinced Hint the
comfort and symmetry of the feet in
maturer years arc largely to be gained
by giving them freedom during the
time of growth. At a very fashionable
marriage some time ago n child bridfs.
