'It seems to me,1 said Jones to Ina
w ife, \Vho was walking around Ihe
room, with the baby in her anna,
?that women make a great deal ot un
necessary fuss about butting a ehild
to sleep. Now, I would chuck him
into bed, and let lllm squall it out.'
'It seems to me,' said Mrs. .Jones,
quietly, 'thai all men are born idiots.'
Jones couldn't, for the life of him,
sec what that fact bad t<> du with
putting the l>nl>y to sleep, but he
wisely held bis peace.
The next evening, Mrs. Jones came
into the sitting-room, where .Jones
was reading the market reports, and
'1 am going down to mother's after
that recipe for yeast. Baby is asleep,
but, if lie should wake. I presume
you could put him to sleep again?
iitcn arc so handy with babitiSi
'All right! I'll put him to sleep
again in less than no time; run along,
my dear,' said Jones, cheerfully.
Mrs. .Jones vanished, and Jones
resumed his paper.
Soon after his wife's departure,
.Jones heard a little premonitory
grunt from the vicinity of the bed
'Hullo! what's that?1 he exclaimed,
as he assumed a listening attitude.
Uc soon found out, for the jttveu
ile member of the Jones family set up
a series of yell* that would have done
credit to a priina donna.
Jones dropped his paper, rushed
into lite bedroom, seized his offspring
and carried him wrong end up buck
into the sittiug-rootn.
Thu suddeuness of the attack, nud
the tinttsal position, so astonished bis
bahyship that he forgot to scream for
a few seconds; but when Jones right
ed him up, and offered him a pair of
sleeve buttons for playthings, John
ny shut bis eyes, opened his mouth,
and began again with renewed vigor
and dclcrminnt ion.
Jones abandoned the sleeve but
tons, and tried to 'cuddle' the baby
up after the maternal fashion, hut
baby sternly refused to 'cuddle;' and,
with a degree of energy for which
Jones was wholly unprepared, and
which evinced a total lack of respect
for the'author of his being,' Johnny
grabbed the palerual whiskers with
both hands and bowled louder than
Jones released himself, smoothed
his cherished w hiskers, deposited bis
heir on the sofa, retreated to a safe
distance, rubbed his face carefully,
smiled in a vague kind of a way, as
if lie didn't know exactly where the
fun came in, and wondered 'what the
dickens Maria would do under sitrii
Baby put Iiis li*t into his mouth,
and looked as if be wondered what
his paternal ancestor would do next.
I 'There, now,' exclaimed Jones, im
mensely relieved,'he is papa's pitty
itt le sonny, so lie is.'
'Sonny' promptly resented this by
a long-drawn yell that struck terror
lo the soul of his dismayed parent.
Jones was at his wit's end. lie
grew reckless. lie whistled It/ that
baby, he sting; lie made faces; be cut
a series of antics that would have
j drjueufA'ballet-dancer mad with envy :
blljL-ull to no put pose. Baby bad
evidently taken a contract to furnish
so much yell in a given time, and was
bound to do the square thing.
When Mrs. Jones returned, she
found a demoralized-looking man
wandering around the house, with
a baby on one arm, while with his
disengaged hand be wiped the per
spiration from his manly brow with
the* tail end oft he baby's night-dress.
'It seems to li e/ remarked Mrs.
Jones, as she took the baby, 'that

The old man took out his watch,

tu.tit's watch from its fastening, and

bit EL LI NU ?R KISSIN'Ot
In the expression of affection, the
sense of smell, there in reason to be
lieve, is older in use and dignity than
that of taste or touch. Of a Mongol
father a traveller writes: "He smelt
ed from time to time the head Of his
youngest stilt, a mark of paternal
tenderness usual among the .Mongols
instead of embracing.'' In the
Philippine inlands-, we arc tuld, "the
souse of smell is developed to so great
a degree that they are able. by smell
ing of the pocket-handkerchiefs, to
tell to which persons they belong;
and lovers at parting exchange pieces
of the linen - they" may be wearing,
aud, during their separation, inhale
the odor of .their beloved being.
Among the Gittagong Hill people
again it is said '"the manner of kiss
ing is peculiar. Instead of pressing
lip to lip they place the nose and
mouth upon the cheek and inhale
the breath strongly. Their form of
speech is not'Give me a kiss,' but
'Smell me.' " In the same way, ac
cording to another traveller"; "the
Burmese do not kiss each other in
the Western fashion,- but apply the
lip and nose to the cheek and make
a strong inhalation." Moreover, the
Saiuoans salute by "juxtaposition of
noses, accompanied not by a rub.
but by a hearty smell." There is
scriptural precedent for such cus
toms. When bliud Isaac was iu
doubt whether the son who came to
him was Jacob or not, "he smelt the
smell of his raiiueut, alld blessed
Suppose*, young, warm-hearted
girls, that, as you lean upon the
broad shoulder, in the half lit-up par
lor; thinking how nice it is to have
some one fond and protecting, and
how dear you seem to be to bint?
suppose you should be made aware
of all the cheeks that had rested oh
that shoulder, and all the forms that
arm had encircled? It's fortunate
you don't know these things. It might
lend you, however, to keep yourself
more sacred for some one who will
love you us entirely as you love this
man, who "takes life as it comes,"
and by force of habit, if pot by incli
nation could not remember any wo
man six months if his happiness de
pended upon it. You ought to allow
no personal freedom from gentlemen
of your acquaintance. If a linger is
put out to examine a locket or chain
on your dress, draw back and t:ike it
otr for inspection, if you choose. The
.reason for this rule is clear to those
w ho come to twenty-live years of age.
A girl w ho protects herself from the
freedom sfi much in vogue in society
increases her own value, if she only
kuew it, with those she mdiy have to
repulse. I don't believe in prudish
uess or suspicion, but 1 do believe
thut if men aud women are not con

expressed by the frank, kind eyes
and cordial, brief hand-shakes and

Profane swearing is one of tho
evils of the present generation. Boys
not in their teens imagine themselves
men by the utterances of a few oaths.
Then the habit is so unprofitable!
Whiskey will make a man feel in a
good'hninor until the pleasant effects
die out, but profane swearing is ut
terly valueless. The worst feature* is
that the hubit is becoming popular
with church members, and it brings
reprUsch upou religion. The other
day we heard several men who stand
well iu tho church ripple out all kind
of oaths. They; profatif the name of
God without any scruple and theif
blasphemy w:n so frequent nnd pro
nounced as to make the worldly-miud
cd shudder. The vice is not confined
to any particular denomination. Bap
tists, Methodists, Presbyjteriaus,
Episcopalians and Scceders seem to
have forgotten all their professions,
and have been cursing like sailors for
the last mouth or so. It is sinful
and disgraceful, nnd every man of
them should be tinned out of the*
I church The habit is abhorrent to
civilization, morality, decency sod,
