female, and uiu ttsmilly put up in pack
aziis uf otic, thouoh sotii. 'times two, in
wliich easn they nru ctilleJ twinn, wlien
nearly nl the satne tire. They tire imt
coiifineJ to any partiovihir ljcality. hut
are louti'l plentitully dishihutetl over
all parts cl tlie itihahiteil countries,
Their ages are various and have wide
ratioc. We have known fhctn us yotin;
as 'tis easy to calculate time on a ivatch
ilial.utid then a;iu wo have seen thctu
where they have nciiurcil the healthy
atia of 25, with n prospect of ailvanein
still further to hahyhood. Their weight
depeuus a groat deal on their heft ; but
as they have twenty-otic years to t;row
in before it costs thctu anything, it don't
matter so much how big they happen to
be when they commence.
I'robahly babies have tnoru pot names
than any other known article of their
size-' In the tender years of life, say
the first two, they are lovingly adddress
ed by such endearing names as Old
Beautiful, Sweetness, Him Darliug,
Honeycomb, l'apa's Hope, Mamma's
Joy, Old Blessed, Noble Handsome,
supposed to be a contradiction of Old
Handsome, and hundreds of other ap
pellations which wo tiever could trans
late.
For several year.", until they can pet
old enough to play n il ot doors and soil
their faces their lives are ono long con
tinuous game of Copeuhageu, cierybody
labo.ing uuder the delusion that all ba
bies are good for is to kiss, consequently
to see one is to kiss it. Wc cannot re
collect of ever finding ourselves in tho
presence of a baby, but what tho fond
mother would say to it, 'Mow be a good
little deary and give gentleman a nice
sweet kiss." Of course W3 accepted it,
though kissing ain't our forte. We are
iturally modest nnd don't care to bo
:en kissing auvhody, Wo don't hank.
er after it as (mine of our friends do. Wn
me willtug to kiss a pretty girl oeea
Motially, tor her mother's sake, or evet;
her own rather than have any trouble,
yet wo think it said pretty girl owed us
kiss, wc should .mien prcler to have it
remain on interest than to have it paid
wlien it became due ; wc never should
present our bill und demaud payment
not-if we continued perfectly sane. We
understand that there are (piito a nuin-
fV of persons who alitor lroui us in re
gard to kissing ; if so let them kiss, we
innot stop to argue the point, our sub
ject treats of babies.
The monotony of babies lives is va
ried by such liulo incidents as an attack
ot the measles, niumns, oi croup, and we
would not neglect to speak of cutting
teeth. A baby that lias got through
all these infantile troubles, is considered
worth some seventy-five dollars more
tlinu one who litis them in prospect.
The diseases are, however, ctisilv treat
ed, and iu case of the measles, all that
is necessary is to have them "break out
well, and to see to it that they don't
"strike in." With tho mumps, just let
them "mump" round a day or two, pud
they will come out all I'gbt. nil the
croup it is iicce.-parv to "strike ile,"
generally '.goose ile," and if applied in
season, twill soou lubneMo the throat
without much trouble, Cutting teeth
runs longer than cither of tho diseases,
yet by a timely investment of a rubber
ring anil latucyou geiri'i in a uoeiur sum.
When we were young, we cut our toctli
on u silver dollar, but as dollars tue now
made of paper, they won t stand the
wear and teat of a whole set of teeth,
ana lis cheaper iu me cnu ui iuvca, in
the lubber ring.
Learning to walk aud-talk arc two
achievements about which two much
cauuot bo said. The walking, though,
is a mere nothing cop.trcd to talking ;
vel it is more dangerous, and accidents
often occur; still they usually ticuii'e
the art with tho necessary breaking ot
some crockery or furniture, which they
frantically clutch ut iu order to save a
fall. During tho season ot practicing
nothing can drop iu tho house, or the
loatt noise bo made, but tho mother will
drop wha', ever she has m her hands
and cry out : "Their goes Wiifio; what
huj he done now !" and ru-hej to the
scene of action to Cnd perhaps a Uower
pot on the floor, and Willie engaged iu
scattering its oontonto about the room.
-41cr clearing up the debris, the mother
returns to her work, thanking liet stars
that it was only a oIio'imc verbeua that
was ruined, and not Willie's ncck.
The conversation at the beginning is
a little UHlCUil 10 uuuersiauu, a 1117
abbreviate a great deal, and
throw a.-;iuo
all pronouns as perfectly useless. Libt.
en'ui" to their talk is like attending au

wortli five dollars to citln r of the de
lighted pitronts. Jlabies must not only
talk themselves, but must be talked to,
and the amount of baby talk used iu u
com noti s h! family is prodigious, lia
bv's appearance opens a new field to all.
The old hands, who have seen babies
before, ctiiveise ijnite fluently, but 'tis
ludicrous to hear a bcghiDcr undertake
to master this tongue. Talking baby
talk is an art which lew ever acquire to
perfection, though by constaut practice
the most stupid cm partially acquire it,
yet it takes two or three generations of
babies to make a perfect linguist.
The effect a baby produces on a fam
ily, no lnalter bow sober paid family may
be, is wonderful to behold. It com
pletely turns the heads of all. If a par
ticular one behave more insane or is cur
ried more away than the rest, we think
griMidnia will bear oil' tho palm, al
though, pa, ma, grandpa, aunt, and a
long list of cousins are not counted out,
by any means. We think the mother
acts the most sensible, though even she
has her failings and weak points in re-
gr.rd lo the baby, and will occasionally
exhibit a trace of insanity when dilat
ing on his charms and accomplishments.
The effect babice have on progression
is self-evident. No ono ever new of a
baby iufcrior to any other preceding
baby. On the contrary, each one is a
little in advance of any yet born; nnd
when wc thiuk of the vast number yet
to bo, and ho'V every ono will be a trifle
superior to its predecessor, what a glo
rious future awaits us ! We shall eveuts
ually reach perfection. How can those
persons who believe that rctrogade
instead of progress, reconcile this fact
with their absurd theory.
Some people, a little enthusiastic, look
upon a baby as "a thing ol beauty and a
joy forever." Now, we have seen some
whom wo thought had a liberal discount
oo their "beauty," aud their "joy forev
er" would quickly vanish on bavins;
them to commence to cry and "refuse to
bo comforted." when left in our charge,
and we busily cnuagod in reading or
writing.
It must be comforting to a man, no
matter how uglj or how ikspited ho may
be, to think that he was once a baby,
beloved by a krge circle ol relatives and
mends It is a confort wo would not
deny him. Thero are quite a number
of this world's people who were not lov.
ing babies a great while ; they arrived
at years when people ceased to love
them quite early iu life, audhave uever
been babies since.
Babies resemble wheat in many res
pects. Firstly, neither are good for
much until they arrive at maturity.
Secondly, both are brtd in the house,
and also tho flower of the family.
Thirdly, both arc generaly well thrash
if before tbev are done with.

fiti-f-A good story is told concerning
tho writing of Mr. J. W. Brooks, the
railroad manager, lie had written a let
ter to a man on the Central lloutc, u',ti-
tying hitu that, under tho penalty of
i-mscciitioM. ho luiut remove a barn
which in some way incommoded the
load. Tho threatened individual was
unable to road any part of tho letter but
tho signature, but took it to bo a free
