imerftal stations to study the culture
of calves and colts and pigs. That's
good work; I am glad some one is do
ing it, but the same kind of work
should be done for babies. I love
babies, I lovehumanity, my own
babies have gon -from me. so I de
cided to start my baby garden.
"It will be an immense task, for
my garden is not to be a garden of a
few blossoms. It will be planted with
flowers from every country in the
world. I had thought first of mak
ing a trip around the world and se
lecting the babies myself, but I won't
have time for that, so I shall write
to the ruler of each foreign country
and the governor of each of our
states and ask them to send me one
baby each.
"I'll only specify that it must be an
orphan, but, boy or girl, black or
white, red or yellow, high cast or low,
will make no difference to me. I
have a mother's love for every baby
I set my eyes on and I would just as
soon cuddle a little Jap from Tokyo in
my arms as a little babe from Boston.
"My garden of babies is to be more
than a garden. It is to be an obser
vatory. "I will invite scientists to come and
make observations of my precious
darlings, watch them unfold and de
velop just as the flowers do.
"I will have no teachers in my
baby garden, though I will have train
ed assistants to guide the babies as
their minds awaken and inquire
about life and the world. I want the
children to grow naturally the gar
den plan again with just a little
pruning and a little weeding, and a
good deal of tender care and nourish
ing, a good deal of sunshine, fresh
air, and plenty of "sancl-pile exercise
for them."
Blood Doesn't Count!
"Maybe blood tells, but I never
knew it to tell anything worth hear
ing. I shall pay no attention to, fam
ily history when I collect my garden
babies. Each human being has to
write his own history art! to live hh
own life. It's for him to say what
hell write and what he'll live." Mrs.
o o
Jfme Anna Psvowa.
If there's "poetry in your soul
there'll be na tango "steps" in your
dance. Because there is no poetry in
the Argentina "wriggle," according
to Anna Pavlova, dancer of allegories
and "poems," she believes that "if
there is a breath of poetry in your
soul you cannot dance the tango. It's
grotesque, it's crude and vulgar. It
isn't art."
