The Beginnings of Crime.
I have made a study of crime for many
years, and have watched its development in
children who have grown up in my immediate
neighborhood. I have noticed that children
who are not properly watched over at home
commence by first stealing the marbles and
playthings of their companions; then they
learn how to go into unoccupied buildings
and yards, carrying off old iron and loose
articles, which they sell to junk dealer*
After this they get bold enough to*enter the
cellars of occupied buildings and get empty
bottles and other things of small value, and
it is not very long before they try climbing
irjo dwellings over the cellars Mud carrying
off anything they can lay their hands on. I
know several criminals, who are now serving
terms in the penitentiary, who commenced
stealing in just this way. They learn grad
ually, and Liecome more expert every day,
and at the same time grow more hardened as
they get older.—Sergt. Lang in Globe-Dem
Attend of the Squire.
Ill a suburban town not ten miles from the
gil.lod domo the great question had been for
months, Shall wo have a public library? The
sewing circle favored the proposition. The
Young Men’s Literary association, which fre
quently took tea with tbo sowing circle after
the latter lia l made the monthly shirt for the
heathen, cordially concurred. Tho tops of
the flour Larrels m all the groceries caved in
under the weight ot the debating viilago
statesmen dis u<s.ng the value and constitu
tionality of public libraries. At last tlio day
oaino when tho partisans of the library and
the strict constructionists mot in forensic
combat on the floor oi tho town nail. The
arguments were gone over again, aud Squire
Spike dosed tho case for tho conservatives.
He lashed lnmself into a fine frenzy over the
intei ruption of the swee t and holy harmony
of homo which the introduction of library
books would occasion. Women would read
novels while the house went unswept; hus
bands and wives would dispute over meta
physics and tlio little domestic world would
bo turned uiiside down.
“Tlio husband would return,” said Squire
Spike, “and would find his dinner unprepared
or burned up and bis wife reading. What
kind ot a book would lie find in her band?'
“A cook book 1” yelled tbo village wag from
tho back seats.
Thenceforward it was vain for Squire Spike
to attempt to push back tbo tide of progress.

Give the Baby a Drink.
Now that warm weather prevuils it should
bo remembered that infants require water to
drink as well as milk. It does not follow that
because milk is a liquid it is capable of satisfy
ing thirst. On tho contrary, being warm as
it is drawn from the breast, it causes thirst
after it has remained in the stomach for some
time, the same as other food. It is this sense
of thirst which causes healthy, breast nour
ished infants to often cry for long periods of
time after freely nursing. It is claimed that
there are many cases of indigestion due to in
sufficiency of the child's gastric juice, which
would lie greatly benefited, or even cured, by
allowing the child occasionally a drink of de
cidedly cool water. And it is certain that
an enormous amount of suffering among in
fants is caused by neglect or ignorance of this
simple rule. By “a drink” is not meant, of
course, a largo quantity—a teaspoonful or
two is sufficient.—Chicago News.
Women In Literature.
Things That Lighten Labor.
I remember bow great was tlie longing
among intelligent women, thirty or forty
years ago, to do a greater sliaro of the lit
erary work of tho nation. A few ventured
forth timidly from the kitchen to do it, per
haps bringing with them iu their hands a
now cookery book, like Mi's. Child and Mias
Leslie, to propitiate tho other sex and prove
that they had in a maimer worked their
passage into freedom. Now they still bring
the cookery book, like Marion Harland, who
bus indeed brought 150,000 copies of here;
but it is no longer needed as an apology.
Mrs. Woods points out that thoro aro about
2,590 women engaged iu literary work in or
near Boston, including, no doubt, all grades
of journalism; that out of 125 authors on the
publishing list ot Roberts Brotbera 77 are
women; that there are tho names of 55
women on Ticknor’s list, 80 on noughtoil’s
and E0 on that of the Motliodist Book Con
cern. The demand for liteiary expression
being thus iu part satiated, it is the most
natural thing in tlie world that there should
bo a demand for action as well as literature,
and that the pi-essui e for executive and pub
lic duties on tho part of women should only
be increased by tbo fact that they havo al
ready froe course iu the field of mere literary
expression. Granted a pursuit, there is still
needed somo other pursuit—“T. W. H.” in
There are other things which make the
work of German housekeeping much lighter
than with us. T-.ere is no regular washing
day, very little washing being done in the
house, tlio wash being sent into the country
every flvo or six weeks. Thia long intervul
necessitates a full supply of household linen,
and hero is another pretty feuture—nil the
articles sorted intoilistinct piles, held together
with ribbon or stitched bands of pretty color
and pattern. Our big ironing days are
avoided, and our baking days likewise ex st
not. Thus the weekly dreaded days are
obliteratoti from tho German domestic calen
dar. It remains for America to find some
co-operative system that will settle the ques
tion tor us, and while removing tlio incon
venience and weight ot labor, will still allow
us to retain our greater comfort and beauty.

more necessary that bo should devoto him
