A JIMIY'h FOOT AND CHINESE FLOItA.

On her hend is an old sunburnt
straw hat, and around hor waist
tho everlastingly string-tied
npron. On her back is whnt ? A
laughing, chubby, fearless baby
girl of eight months. Sho takes
her off and sits down, this four
foot seven of womanhood jMougo
.liau on a school-room bench and
opens for our admiration its prot
ty feot, as whito and as sweet as
your baby's yes. Wo ask hor to
givo tho baby to us in ono yoar j
from that time; and sue tell us, in
reply, that sho has four boys nnd
but ono girl and she cannot. Tho
liht of mother lovo is- in her
eyes, as strong us in yours, nnd
suo would provo n very Bengal
rigor in defenso of her cubs. Wo
would not liko to harm ono of hor
children and then to meot her
What is moro perfect than a
baby's foot, its little toes nnd nails,
its pink heol and soft instep.
While we wore knocking this
baby's feet together and tnlking
to it in Mothor-Gooso English, it
did not shrink, whiinpor nor
whine, but fixed its clear eyes on
our f aco with such a calm uncanny
gazo as to make us (only wo are
now used to a child's eyes) almost
wince. Wo folt somewhnt as if a
senrch-light, or cathode rays, woro
nfter our mental anatomy through,
simply, that littlo rascal's eyes
nnd a girl.
Into that largo square pocket
made in the middle of tho bib or
. til e of every Chinese baby, made
doublo ana of stout material, a
cover all, go all its toys and
ti ensures and, often its only food,
its little lunches and munches. It
is n perfect treasure house of
economy thnt garment. 'Tho
Ohinese are thrifty, the women
sew by hand nnd nearly all of
them can do exquisite work withthe
needle; nnd they can patch to per
fection. The Chinese women aro
neat, tidy and careful.
It goes without saying on our
part that theso Chinese lovo their
wives and do not find fault. Wo
wish we could say as muoh for the
Caucasian as for tho Mongolinn
in this respect. Wo wont in to
seo a heathen family; father, very
pretty mother nnd three babies.
Wo asked tho mother if tho baby
in hor lap was a girl ?
Yes. Then you have two
girls and ono boy. With a smile
on hor own girlish face she re
plied: "Girls no good, oh ? Oh,
yes, girls are fine; it is tho boys
who aro not much account nowa
daH." Well, yon should have
tei ii the look of affection that mun
shot at his wife: "Allee samel
Allen same!" We came away with
the' pfivnto opinion that they, tho
whole batob, woro protty good
stuff, as rich ns Bagdad silks, to
iiihke Christians of!
