In short, a kiss in Iceland is equivalent ,
to our hand shaking ; yet the people are
all honest. There is no prison on the isl
and ; there are no criminals, no locks,
bolts or bars; though drunkeness is a very
common vice. The reader will see from
these statements that Madame Pfeiffer
was disappointed in the people of Iceland
She commends their trustworthiness, butioffcred for his capture in vain, until a.
all the other features of their character
excited her disgust.

It is a fact which must have been no

years old. Almost every word it utters

talking, and there must be some univer-

the saying is. When a baby finst begins
to lisp 'pa' and 'ma' instead of endavor
ing to instruct it pure English, thc parent
thinks it necessary to simpliiy the lan
guage by always speaking in a sappy
manner. 'Ittle ony-tony,' 'Kitty dear,'
'walk alony,' 'kisser mamma,' 'stand a
straighty,' &c. Every mother knows a
thousand and one of these babv express
ions. Now, as a mother, I protest against
this practice. It is all nonsence to teach
