y Bad Memories.
Many people complain at baring a
bad memory, as if it were ometbing
they could not help, like a headache,
or some similar ailment; yet eren that
can be helped nowadays by the appli
cation of a little common sense. After
all, there is no reason why anybody
bould have a bad memory. It is mere
ly a matter of training and is, more
over, a matter in which it is never too
late to attend to its training. For
grown-ups many methods are advo
cated, all of them, no doubt, based on
the principle of mental concentration.
In a young child the faculty can be
cultivated by making the child de
scribe everything it has seen in its
morning walk, taking care that no fact
Is exaggerated, but that strict atten
tion is paid to truth in every detail.
In the matter of memorizing it is an
excellent plan to let the child learn
one line f poetry a day, which it
should repeat the following morning,
and at the end of a week it will be
able to say the seven lines. The young
brain should not be overloaded with
knowledge, but allowed to assimilate
a fragment each day.

Kellle Tells How Baby Came.
There's no use of your talkinr. for
mamma told me so.
And if there's any one that does, my
mamma ought to know:
For she has been to Europe, and seen
the Pone of Borne.
Though she says that was before I 'came
to live with her at home.
You see, we had no baby, unless you
call me one.
And I have grown so big yon know,
twould have to be in fun.
When I went to see grandma, about
two weeks ago.
And now we've one. a Kttle one. that
squirms and wriggles so.'
And mamma says an angel came down
from heaven above.
And brought this baby to her, for she
and me to love:
And its got the cunnintcest of feet, as
little as can be.
And smiling eyes, and curly hair, and
hands you scarce can see.
And then it never cries a bit, like some
bad babies do:
And papa says it looks like me I don't
think so, do yon?
For I'm a girl, and it's a boy., and boys
I can't endure.
Unless they're babies like our own.
they'll plague and teas you sure.

you just tell me why:

And Christ loves little babies, and God
Ana it the angel didn t who did our
You can't tell; no I gness you Can't, but
mamma ought to know.
For it's her baby, hex's and ear's, and
- mamma told me so;
And they don't make any cunning things
like him on earth, yon see;
For no wax doll, with real hair, is half
so nice as he.
I know an. angel brought him,: and
think one brought me, too.
Though I don't just now remember, and
so can t tell, can you? .
But mamma knows, and this I know, the
baby wasn t home
When I went away, and now he is; if
you want to see him, come.
mamma says if I am good I can
kiss him every day,
we'll kiss him now, and then go
out and have a nice long play;
if anybody asks yon how babies
come and go,
tell them it's the angels, for
mamma told me so.

Russia's Lack of Statesmen.
As a matter of faqt, , there has not

of the second class, unless Nesselrode
and the first Emperor Nicholas are to
be excepted; ,To consider Prjnce Gort
chakoff a great chancellor on account
of his elaborate dispatches is absurd.
To call him a great; statesman, in the
time of Cavojir, Bismarck, Lincoln and
Seward, is preposterous. Whatever
trrowth Russia has , made in the last
forty years has been mainly in spite
of the men who have posed before the
world as her statesmen: the . atmos
