JUST ABOUT BABIES.
This writing on how to traln a baby
is by a man.
The presumption of it!
Whnt does a mere man know about
nables? Strange as it may appear. a
man may have learned sometblng from
observatlon, and bls point of view may
be very well worth while.
Anyway. you vrill please permit a
man who has had bablea ln hia house

Haydn had a pecullar way of deter
mlnlnfr the time ln which a piece of
music ahould l>e sung. On one occasion
a feranle elnger lu hlgb eateem at

of Haydn's eomiNwltlons. At the re

as to the time of the music. The mat?

"Yes." snkl the purser on one of the
blg Itners recently to the writer. who
happened to t>e taklng a trip from LJv
erpool to New York. "we have our
own troubles. 1 can assure you. and I
BOtnettmes envy the captaln hls soll
tary enjoyment of the brldge. even
during a slxty mlle gale. Passengers
seem to tfalnk that the purser is put
on n shlp slmply to answer foollab
"Of course there is a good deal
which we have to put up wlth as be

we occaslonally lose our tempers?
"Aud then. agaln. the purser Is al

wlth i sweet smlle: Ob, Mr. Purser,
I nui ko sorry to dlsturh you. 1 know
lt Is not your hour of busiuess, but
could you tell me if we will really
land uext Thursday, as I told my
brother we would. nnd I know be will
be waltlng for me on the dock.'
"Of course 1 am pollte. but 1 have
some ditticulty in persuadlug her that
1 am not running the shlp. aud ueltber
cau I control the elemeuts. She goes
away wlth an expresslou that clearly
shoWs she thinks 1 am keeplug some
thtng back aud it will be my fault if
we do not nrrlveat tbe time appointed.
"I rememlter ou one trip when the
went her wus particulaily atoriny a
woman passenger kuocked at my door
?after ottke hours, of course?and
beggod that she mlgbt s|>euk to me for
a few miiiutes. I polltely asked her
to enter. and then. her eyes startlng
out of her hend wlth the excltemeut of
supprcssed eraotion. she Implored me
to draw up her will. 1 protested that
1 was not u lawyer. but do you tblnk
she would be satistled wlth that ex
cuseV Not much! There aud then 1
had to druw up a document I i the
best legal phraseology I could mustcr.
"Wheli lt was tiuished aud l aud my
assistant had signed lt ahe gave tho
young fellow u aoverelgu for hls trou

much as bnde me goodby, though 1
had repeutedly asked her to take back
her rlug. She was a very rlcb woman
?vldeutly. aud the 'bequests' ln that
will 1 drew up mude my eyes bulge.
"Moat passengers when we have been
a day or ao out briug the purser all
their valuables, for which they recelva
a receipt. Some nervous womeu seeiu
to thlnk that a 'strong room' at sea la
not a very seeure place for their Jew
els, and they insist on seelng their
I treasurcs at least every day. One wom?
an passenger made my llfe a burden
during u receut voyage by taklng bet
valuables out and puttiug them ln
agaln three times a day until I told hei
that the next time she called for them
I would not take them back agaln,
whereat she told me. wlth a sour look,
that 1 was impertlneut aud she would
inform the captaln. 1 believe she did
so. but-tbe captaln gave her a word oi
two of advice regardlng the Implk-lt
trusc which ahould be placed ln ?
purser, aud this quleted her. ln fact,
she afterward came to me and apolo
gized for her seemlng rudeness.
"As a rule. I conduct ehurch serrlce
on board. as the captaln does not en
Joy tbe work. but prefers to remam oo
the bridge. Many a funeral servtce
also has falleu to my lot, and 1 have

usually the one to whoin a pasaeuger

stateroom really rests with the head
steward. Then, agaln, lt ls the purser
who ls appealed to when tbe passen?
gers elect to hold a concert, and tbe
young folks usually rush to him also
when they want to have a dance on
deck. A purser cau be very populat
or the reverse, and unless you have an
excelleot temper you stand a good
chance of being the reverse.
"The funulest experlence 1 had waa
on a recent trip. when there was on
board a little glrl about twelve years
old. She struck up a warm frlendshlp
wltb me and would walk the deck for

She fell very 111 during a storm aad
refused to he eoraforted. Her mother
asked her If there was anythlng sh<
could do which would ease her suffer

?* *ntsrsat, 9bm aatbor gives one of
bae advoulUfaa on a peak near tbe vll
?at* of Ettxtmbel.
On one of these peak* occurred to
me many years ago a little adventure
which gave me an opportunity of ad
mlrlng tbe grand view rather ionger
than was pleasant.
I was out stalklng chamols, and. bav
ing some unoccupled hours lu tbe mld
dle of the day. when staiklng ls prac
tlcally wseless. as the beasU are rest
lng. I thougbt I would ascecd one of
tbose plnnaclea upon which at that
time few buman belngs, l suppose. had
ever set foot.
Tbe very last blt was a smooth faced
rock not more tbau twelve feet blgh.
but absolutely uncllmbable lf unalded
by rope or another man upon wbose
shoulders oue could get and so obtalu
a hand grip of the top and thus draw
oneself up. As I was aloue l had re
course to a sbort length of rope 1 bad
ln my rucksack. Making a sllp noose.
I threw lt upward till It grlpped some
projectlon. Then I drew myself up.
While looklug about me an unfortu
nate movement of my legs, which were
dangllng over tbe briuk as I aat. caused
the rope to sllp and fall down to the
small ledge on wblch 1 bad stood when
fllnglug lt upward. This ledge or baud
of rock was uucomfortably narrow.
not *lder than thlrty inches, ahd tbe
abyss bclow was a perpendlcuiar wall
four or flve churcb steeples ln deptb.
At flrst lt did not seem such a serl
ous flx to be lu. By lettlng myself
drop to the ledge, my extended arms
gripplag tbe top. tbe dlstance between
the soles of my feet and the ledge was
not more than four feet or ao?notblng
to speak of lf that yawnlng gulf had
not been there nnd I had bad boots oo
my feet. But. havttrg takeu these off
and left them below. togetber wltb my
coat and rifle. I should have to drop
on to shnrp rocks barefooted aud hence
would be very apt to lose my balauce.
The more 1 cousldered the posltlon
the more I fuuked that drop, and. to
make a long story sbort. I stayed on
that plnuncle two nlgbts, until tbe
morolng of tbe thlrd day, before bun
ger drove me to rlsk tbe drop which
1 did In safety,
How | got down the remaiuder of
that descent. "shinnlug" dowu chlm
oeys aud creeplug along narrow edges,
was a mystery to me after ward. for 1
was falnt wltb hmiger aud my knees
trembled and shook under me. Wben
I reached the Orst babltation where I
happened to be known tbe peasaut

Cardui, as thousands of other women have done.
Begin at once and give Cardui a fair triaL
