Emma Anuus :—Some of your readers
have expreu‘vd a wish that we should say
semething about babies. It is a wry ten
der subject and will have to be touched
very carefully or it will give offence. They
are a Very valuable institution. at least in
this Teni‘ory. When our Ya ‘ies meet
they are the first subject before the Board.
No other, subject can be introduced until
the mental and physical condition at all
the babies known are disposed of. '.not
even the terminus at the N. P. Railroad
has any claims for a hearing until the hm
bies are laid on the shelf. Babies are of
quite an ancient origin. "they were at
the landing of the Pilgrims and, agreeable
t.) Hoer and McCanley, they ham been
known in England lor six or seven hun
ddd years. They wet. in Greece and
Rome at the time of their'grestest power.
but there was not as much vs‘uid about
them as about their wars; And there is
historical proof that they were seen in
Egypt about the time the pyramids were
bni t. When we leave written history
and search geology, we must believe that
the antiquity of babies is nearly as far
back as man‘s. Some of the most learned
geologists have phtced the origin of babies
at the time of the tertiary period. It isl
not fiction when we assert that thousands
of years ago, on the bank of some river.
under a tree loaded with fruit or nuts, the
first baby introduced itself to her uncul
tivated; um-ombcd and unn-lolhed mother.
When the will mother heard the strange
voice ofth little stronger. and saw that
it mowd ca\td had life. she sprang to
her feet and fled to the forest. An iufiu
enou that she knew nothing of—a law of
which she had no knowledge. stayed her
steps and turned her face toward the place
she had left. She returned very slowly
and cnutiously. and when she neared the
little stranger. she examined it very close
ly to see if it had not a Colt's revolver or
some other deadly weapon concealed
about it, and then she took it in her arms
amfpressed it to her bosom. for she had
the instinct at a mother. She lost no time
in telegraphing to her husband what had
happened, and desired him to return home
on the fill! tynin. Notwithstanding this
primitive mother had no Oregon (tunnel or
Irish diaper, yet this first baby lived and
grew. - The parents ot'this baby balichd
it to he a remarkable child, but like
many babies of the present tiny, we have
no account that it grew to be an adult of
much notoriety. We have great sympa.
thv for all habit-ti. knowing that mz‘lt of
us h .ve once been babies and some at us
an- babies yet. Z. Z.
