Bill Arp' Baby Talk.
Timeout hath said that "a baby in
tho houso is a well spring of pleasure."
There is a brand-new ono here now, the
lirst in eight years, and it has raised a
powerful commotion. Ii'h not our baby,
exactly but It is in the lino of deseout,
and Mrs. Arp takes on over it all the
same as she used to when sho was regu
larly in tho business. I thought maybe
she had forgot bow to nurse 'cm and
talk to 'em, but she is singing the same
old familiar songs that havo sweetened
tho dreams of half soore, and she bles
ses tho little eyes and sweet little mouth,
and uses tho 'same infantilo language
that nobody but babies understand. For
sho says "turn here to its danmuddor."
and "bless its 'ittle heart," and talks
about ita sweet little footsy-tootaies, and
holds it up to tho windows to seo the
wagons go by and tbo wheels going
rouny-pouny, and now my liberty is
curtailed, for as I go stamping around
with my heavy farm shoes she shakos
her ominous finger at nio Just like xhe
used to, and says don't you seo the baby
is asleep, . and so I havo to tip-toe
around, and ever and anon sho wants a
little fire, or some hot water, or a little
catnip, for the. baby is n-eryitig, and
surely has got the colic. The doors
have to bo kept shut now for fear of a
draft of air on the baby, and a little
hole in the wiudowpano about ns big

to hunt up a passel of kin'lings every
night, ami put 'em whore they will be
handy, and they have sent uie off to

A grandmother is a wonderful help,

and paregoric, and soothing syrup, and

on this business, no way of raising 'cm

trouble from the start, and nobody but
a mother knows how much trouble it is.

A Girl's Olnb.
A very pretty story comes from New
York about four homeless working girls
who determined to abandon tho Horrid
boarding-house, pool their earning, anil
make themselves as real a homo as ean
ho found beyond a parent's roof. Thoy
reir ! a t' ' "I -tory flat and began ope
ration,, i i.ct wero poor, and were
obliged to start with only one room car
peted, a stove, some chairs, a clock, a
table, a few cups and dishesT knives ami
forks, and two mattresses, but no bed
steads. Little by I it Liu tbo furniture
was increased; now by a chair, next by
a bedstead, again by It bureau, and so
on until from being complete, extras
wore added. One of tho girls got $20 a
week as a milliner; another 12 as u
clerk iu a Hroadway candy store; an
other got !?10or i?l 2 somewhere elso,
and tho fourth was a dressmaker, and
because sho worked Bt homo was made
housekeeper ami called steward of tho
club. Until the house was furnished
all pooled their earnings, but since then
each has paid every Saturday a share
(graded iu nceorda'neu with' their in
come) of the week's expenses, including
a stated sum as salary to tbo stcwaru
os. The girls dress tastefully and live
better than their neighbors. They live
along without quarreling, and run their
picturesque establishment according to
ruiiM framed ami hung iu tho parlor.
One ot these rules is that no member of
the dub shall receive the visit of a gen
tleman except in tho prcseneo of at
least one other member, and that all the
members who are in the house shall bo
present iu such cases.
