With Hie oiie-a-nnnule calculation every reader is laminar, uuia.n not every one who stojiE lo caieti: late what this means when it comes io a vear'a sunn V.

We have I he ingenious con elusion also that supposing the lit lie ones to grow up, and the sexes lo be about, equally divided, we should have" an army a hundred limes as large as the British empire, with' a -wile in addition io every soldier. .The same writer looks at Ihe mutter in a still more pictu resque light'. He imagines the ba ll en; being carnea past a given rxiii.t lii (heir mother's charge one by one, and Ihe procession being kept up continuously Illgut aim ua,y until the last-comer in tneiweive niniith had nassed bv. A sufflci entlv liberal rale of speed is allow ed, but even with these babies-in Brm going past tweniy a minute, tho reviewing officer would only have teen a sixteenth tmrioi me infantine host tile onwards by the lime he had been a year at lua post In oil er wonU. the babe iliat naa to be cjrried when the work began would be able lo toddle onward itself when a mere fraction of its comrades had reached the saluting oost s and when Ihe year's unppiy of babiea was tapering to a close. there would be a rearguard urn 01 mfanta but of romping boye and girls.

In all out towns every day sees children born into, the lap of luxury, and others ushered alas! into existence amidst misery and want. This is a .view of th case which has nt escaped the silrvey oi our essayist in the fespitei.'who speaks of the many who are bony ... it. Mini riat. 'fur n ennd nniriv hours in the day they must rub along as best they can in charge of a nurse only a little bigger than themselves while mother is out washing ;" while til hers find them selves in -circumstances "such as Ihat of Ihft baby Grand Duke Mi chael Alexandrovitch, who before he was many weeks old is reported lo have had I he. sum of 3309 de voted to hi-t iii'ht year's mainten ance; and home fifteen people en tirely set apart for his personal ser vice'. But even with the best in lef.lions, the new-comers, accord ing to the country to whic'i I hey belong, are subjected to the most diverse experiences. They may be sheltered from the slightest touch of cold and nestled in cosy and warm places, as i.s the rule amongst Caucasian peoples j or they may be immersed in cold waler and well rubbed with. snow, after the man ner of certain Mongolian tribe?. In some land, as in our own, the daily bath Ss insisted upon -on the ground of health, and is very soon amoved by ihe infant; but away up Wlllllll I lie iircuc .cncie uu io supposed lo be part of the herilage of life, and Ihe cleansing process is altogether unknown. Aim ine lower orderot H.gypnans are even worse than the Jisqunnaux in tins matter; for although Ihe former enjoy a miiaer cnmaieanu aciosei touch with civilization, iney :eave l heir inlants "not oniy-undressed iiul unwashed, bill they blacken their loreheads with soot or bedaub them with clay, or keep them wrap- ;,ed up in a black, veil." , llus ap pears to be done with the oijeci oi depreciating (be little ones in the eyes of strangers. A pasppoit to favor in the houses in certain parts of Egypt is not obtained, as in our English homes, by a goou woru ior Ihe infant. There, in order to be considerate and polite, "it visitor who looks at Ihe baby must say: Dear me !

As at present practiced it does not arise from any lack ol aaecuon ior the children, and enlightenment should in time overcome so much of it as is due to ignorance and su perstition. lint, alter ail, il is Deiier mai n unclad child should be lelt to the natural discoloration it is sure to acouire.-with thechar.ee of nn oc casional wash down in a shower, than that ils skin should be sub jected lo artificial adornment. Much better, lr instance, to ou h baby in lower Egypt than in Kaff- raria, where ine lime ones me smartened tip from lime to lime, as occasion may require with coals of brilliant red paint. But proijaoiy Ihe Kaffir babies, had they a voicj in the matter, would prefer the trap, lnm nf their limbs with Ihe scarlet slain", to being rolled up as a mummy and stuck in a case r.lter the manner ol the genuine infan tile redskins in North America, or even lo Ihe rolls which Ihe country babies of Sweeden nnd Germany and some other parts ol Euiope are-made up. Our essayist, by ihe wav, tells us that fcweeiiiu moin . . ..... .. i i .... er, Having miu puckou )i mni infants, take the animaiea otinuie to church with Ihrm, and in winier will leave them at the door, "safely towed away beneath a covering of snow, with just lillle air-hole for breathing purposes," and there me mmovable cherub will lie perieci- ly safe and warm till" service, rs over.

What tiny creature some babies Terms Two Dollars per" Year in Advance. are! Instances are known in which the child at birth has not weighed more than a pound, and has yet de veloped inlo average proportions. Sir Iaue Newton was such a mite at Uie dawn of ins lile Ihat. he could esconco himself comfortably in a quart pot, and ha was anything but, an obscure figure in manhood. On Ihe other hand, nome children that promised, well as losiae have assumed a. dwarfish, appearance as tbey grew np. This .was.lhe case Willi one Nanette Stocking, a clev er little lady who was exhibited in London about. a century ago. Na nette did pot rise higher than thirty-three indies in her womanhood, while as'a baby s-he wassaid to have been beyond the usual size. In contrast to this case is that of Dan iel Lambert,' who entered life with verv niodeft dimensions', indeed, but whose height and breadth at Ihe lime of his doath were, such Hint the outer wall of his room bad to be removed before he could be buried. , It used lo be considered unluckv in this country lo weigh babies, and the feeling on the sub- lect no doubt continue lo assert Use in coutilrv maces. Across the Atlantic,, however, the baby's weight is regarded as of equal im porlance wi'ih it name;, and Ihe usual newsnaper notice will have an addition when1 the avoirdupois reaches a saiisfaclory point,- viz. "Mrs. Washington Brown, son twelVo pounds," This is beyond the average weight, but it i by no moan the maximum. Waster vvy brants, who was exhibited as '"The Modern Ilerculee," does not appear lo have been weighed when born, but when four months old lie turn ed the scale at 37 pounds, he was 24 inches round the body, lo rouiici the thigh, and 8 round -Hie-arm The great difficulty in rearing ol very linv uiian is io Keep mem sufficiently warm; but this draw back amiears lo nave ueen over loma in New York Slate, where recourse has been had wilh gratify ing results to. an incubating ma chine, instead of an ordinary cnb. ' There are very lew places where the baby is not hedged round with protecting care, iliac wonneriui precession of thirty-seven millions, as a year's supply of infants, can not be regarded even in imagina tion as an unbroken line ; but Ihe gaps from preventable causes are gradually becoming fewer. Not only are more babies being born into thewoild, but the new-comers have a better chance of surviving than was the case fifty or sixty years ago. At the same time the yearly procession, if presenting an in crease in certain seclionsyshnw a diminution in oihers. The. babies of aboriginal races in many 'instan ces have become a mere remnant ot. what used to be the case before the dominating power of Ihe white man began to make itself felt ia other climes than his own. It is with human beings as with lower animals and vegetables the latter types seem to have a tendency to obiiierate the earlier lypes when brought into contact with them. Tbe Poor Old Bcs.
