views before tbe British public. It is much
border to get at an English editor tbat at an
American, but finally communications were
established, and one evening there was a sub
dued knock at the door of his room in bis
hotel "Come in," said Gen, Pryor. The
door opened about six inches, and through
the aperture sidled a dilapidated specimen of
flunmnity. Softly clonlcg the door the di
lapidated specimen put bis dilapidated bat
on the floor, and, bowing humbly, uttered:
"Gen. Pryor, I believe." "Yes, I am Gen.

PECULIARITIES OF BABY.
AH Sorts of Funny thine Found In Infant
In the course of a lecture delivered
In New York the other day, a distin
guished female physician said that the
inability of a baby to hold up its head
was not due to the weakness of the
neck, but to the lack of development of
its will power. The act of standing
was instinctive and initiative, while
facial expressions and gesture were
due almost wholly to imitation.
A baby's smile, she said, was the
most misunderstood thin? in infancy,
A real smile must have an idea behind
It, but the expression resembling a
smile, which is so often seen on a very
young baby's face, was without an
idea and was due to the easy condition
of the stomach or to some other phys
ical satisfaction. The smilo with an
ideL does not appear earlier than the
fourth week. So, too. with the crying
of a baby. The contortion of the feat-
ures is due to physical causes. The
baby sheds no tears, because the lach
rymal glands are not developed for
several weeks after birth. The chief
pleasure of all children is to change
from one position to another by their
own efforts. This Is the beginning of
the development of the will power,
and is often attested in what has been
called the "imperative intention of
tears." This is not disclosed until after
the eecond or third month.
A baby tests every thing by its
mouth, its sense of taste being the
surest and most reliable guide it has.
The attention of all young children is
difficult to attract, and they must
attain considerable age before they
begin to notice. Then colors and
sounds are most potential Fear is
known to be manifested by a baby
only three weeks old, and in all cases
the sensation ia produced by sound
more "than by sight Children of
luxurious and carefully guarded homes
are most wholly without fear, but the
children of poor and exposed parents
alwavs manifest it Jealousy and
sympathy begin to manifest themselves
In the second year.
Curiosity also begins to develop
here, and proves to be a 6elf-feeder
throughout childhood. A little later
the ego begins to appear, and the baby
has the best consciousness of itself.
Ihu ego first appears as a muscular
sense, and the infant gradually learns
to distinguish itself from surrounding
objects. H is first the hand that is
distinguished and then the foot, and
Gnally the whole body. Memory does
not appear before the child is two
years of age. All the reasoning of
children is primitive and elementary
and develops slowly. Darwin noticed
an assochtion of ideas in tbe mind of
his child when, it was only five months
of age. The lecturer related experi
ences of babies with the first view of
mirrors, and showed that their actions
under the new conditions were similar
to those of anthropoid apes and dogs
under like conditions. St Louis Re

He Was an Old Man, but Lively One.
We wi a sitting in front of Davidson's gro
cery one summer afternoon, when some ona
observed that "Old Taylor" was coining. He
was a dried up, little old man, who .might
have been anywhere from 50 to 100 years bid,
and he had a voice to remind you of broken
glass rattling in a tin an.
;'Now, boys," said tbe village shoemaker,
who was about 45 years old, and weighed 17S
pounds, "I'll show you some fun. I'm going
to scare old Taylor half to death."
Tbe old man drove up before any explana
tions could be sought, and after hitching bit
old plug be stood for a minute to wipe th
dust off bis ancient plug bat with his elbow.
The shoemaker took advantage of this to ad
vance and say:
"Uncle Taylpr, it is over twenty years ac
that I sold you a pair of boots on tick. They
have never been paid for yet."
"Tbeydidn t fit, and they never will be
paid furl" hotly replied the old man.
I have waited and waited," continued thi
cobbler, "but my patience is finally exhaust
ed. You must now par r"e or I'll take it out
of your bide." - ' -
"Goin' to lick me, hey 1" shouted Uncle Tay
lor, as he-drew back a step.
"I II bave to," answered the creditor.
"Then pitch right in!"
"Will you pay("
"No, sirl" .
"Uncle Taylor, I hate to break you in two.
but if you don't pay that old debt III" -
"Then come on!" squealed the old man, and
with that he swung and caught the shoemaker
ou the -jaw and laid him out. He followed it
up by piling ou, and he kicked, bit, scratched
and pounded so vitrorouslv that inside of
three minutes the cobbler was shouting to ui
to take him off. Ho was a licked man. In
stead of having fun with the old man, th
old man bad made a circus of him. We
hauled hiiuiuto tbe shade of a sugar hogshead
mid fanned him with a hut, and after about
ten minutes be faintly remarked: '
