away any moro of his valuable"
than ho has to.
There have been ovenings, I dare say,
when tho ploasuro of putting baby to
Bleep has been yours. Your wife has
had a sick headache, or sho has wanted
to "run over to mother's," or into ono of
tho neighbor's houses for something,
and you have said: "Oh, no, of course
not," whon sho has asked if you would
mind getting baby to sleep after sho has
Perhaps, if it is a first experience, you
aro rather glad of tho ohanco to con?
vince your wifo that sho has fallen into
tho habit of wasting a deal of time in
getting that youngster to sloop oven
ing8. You have always felt and said
that you could get him to sleep in a
fourth of tho time your wifo spends. All
it requires is a little firmness. Tho baby
wants to simply be made to understand
that it is bed-timo and that he mvst go
to sleep. That is your theory, and now
you'll put it into practice, particularly
\as there is a long editorial in tho even?
ing paper and an article in the magazino
you Brought home with you that you
want to read this cvoning.
Well, mamma departs, and you take
tho baby, robed in his little white
"nighty" ? tho nearest thing to an
angel there is on this earth, mi matter
how be may cut up and tear around in
the hour to come.
You pick him up and say fondly, but
"Now papa's little baby must go right
"(?oo. goo," he says, which is his way
of saying "good-night," and also his way
of saying forty other things.
"Now. baby, shut bis little eyes," you
say as you cuddle him up in your arms.
"(loo, goo," ho says, with his eyes
wide open and a sort of intimation in
them that ho will shut them when ho
gets ready to do so, and not before.
"Baby," yon say a little moro severe?
ly, "papa wants to read his paper and
baby mint, go to sleep."
If ever a baby said "I won't do it" with
his heels yours .says it about this time,
on'tiie onk nuxmiEnTii lap.
for the way be lets his little pink heels
fly into tho air means nothing less than
a distitu t and positivo "I won't."
Y<u then bold him firmly in your
arml and be'begins to squirm, lie
wrifr'.^s and wriggles with unexpected
str/. \ th and placidly contends for free
do/ 7 yr.il you let him go through sheer
ad* J v>n of his grit.
"?.< foo," ho says, which this time
meal V,; Ah, ha! I'll show yon a thing or
"Baby, dear," you say plaintively,
"won't papa's baby go to sleep now??
that's a good baby."
Then the good baby manifests his in?
tention of gottingdown and crawling all
over the floor. "Foiled in this, he con?
cludes io crawl all over you. Iiis little
lingers clutch your beard and yon
haven't the heart, to shake him off, not
even when ho pulls so hard that your
eyes are full of tears. Then ho pokes
his lingers into your nose, eyes and ears,
giving tho result of his investigations in
a series of gurgling "goo-goos," indicat?
ing that ho is as wide-awake as ho ever
was in his life,and he thinks ho can hold
out three or four hours yet. You haul
him down into your arms and say:
"Now, if baby don't go right to sleep
papa will have to whip. Shall papa
Tho "goo, goo" be now screeches out
?Ihoans: "Do so at your own risk."
Whip him! There is more or less of tho
brute in every man, but you inwardly
thapk God that your brutal tendencies
dont run in the direction of pounding
babies. 11 they did your wifo is deserv?
ing of a divorco free of charge and ovory
thing you havo on earth as alimony.
You simply cuddlo him up in your
arms and begin rocking him to and fro
in such a manner that he couldn't go to
sleep if ho wanted to, no more than you
could if lashed to a trip-hammer. Then
you sing every thing you know, from
"Rock of Ages" down to "Annie
Rooncy," all in ono key, for, ten to one,
you can't sing a note correctly to save
This concert lasts an hour and a half
and baWy* lives through it all and has
vitality enough to pop up at the close of
it with a cheery:
"Ya, ya! (loo, goo!"
Then you shake him a little and say:
"Now, young man, I've bad just about
enough of this. You've simply got to go
to sleep! (lo to ulccpj"
Now y?u'vo made him cry. llo slips
limply down into your arms and opens
his mouth in ono prolonged yell, fol?
lowed by another and another until ho
?has omitted about - thousand of them.
You walk tho floor Him; you bounco
him up and down? -/.i.. " Vcdlo
and scold und fuino and, I daro say,
swoar a tittle.
Uy and by his cries grow weaker and
fewer; you fool his little form relaxing
in your arms, his little limbs hang limp?
ly, his curly hOad lies heavily on your
Shoulder, his oyolids droop slowly, and,
with that most pitiful of Bounds, the sob?
bing of a child in its sleep, tne little fel?
low wanders into dreamland. You aro
free to lay him down now and tako up
your book or your paper, but you don't
always do it. Sometimes you simply sit
down gently with the baby still in your
arms and your eyes ilxed on his Unshod
little face. You are sorry you mado him
cry. Every ono of tboso sleeping sobs
goes right to your heart.
There you sit for an hour, may bo,
looking into his face with a sort of di?
vine tenderness in your heart that
