But how fares it with the baby of tho tene- nent! Tho tenement baby, like its aristocratic lonipeer, awakes early in the morning, too. it is awako at dawn and then dozes off into fretful sie* p again. It awakened at short in tervals during nil the first part of tho night and roused its tired, impatient mother with its peevish wailing. Its lips aro parched and its thin hands hot; its eyelids but half closed. It rolls its head now and then in a feeble way. It seems consumed with heat, but when its mother puts a spoonful of water between its lips tho weakened stomach ref uses to take the liquid. Tho father, worn with his day’s toil, is angered at tho suffering innocent disturbing his sleep. Harshly, perhaps, ho chides bis wifo for not bushing tho child. She gives to it an empty breast from which it lunw with renewed wailing. Then she tries another ex pedient. She hastily prepares somo lmlk and water an l feeds the baby a fow spoonful* She knows it is good milk. Did sho not buy it herself of Ja N>b. who keeps four cows in a rear shed, and sells the lacteal fluid they supply so much cheaper than sho can get it of a milkman! To bo sure tho poor kine stand day after day, from week’s end to week’s end, from ouo month to another, in tho same stulls almost knee high in offal. But she is certain it is good milk, real cow’s milk, for did sho not see Jacob milk tho cows! So she gives it to her baby, trotting ic up and down on her knees tho whilo. It is teet’ ing, and the summer heat makes it ill. Sho is so worn that scarcely can sho keep her weary eyes open till sho has finished feeding her offspring. Then she takes it back into tho bed occupied by herself and tho father, lie turns over as she lies down, and testily rtkopcs the young ’un will keep still, now it’s got? its stomach full.” Scarcely hasthomother fallen asleep before another cry arouses her. The milk and water put down tho littlo one’s throat has been re jected by its stomach. Again she rises and turns up tho wick of tho smoking kerosene lamp. Sho dandles tho child up and down, for sho knows net what to do to quiet it. Its wailing disturbs other inmates of the tenement. Ont of a window a neighbor woman puts her hea l and ca h to her: “Reach out ycur band,” she says; “I’ve got a bit of medicine that will quiet the baby.” She gives her a bottlo and bids her admin ister a halt tcaspoouful.

There is no reason why a woman should not be a notary, and there are some cases of delicacy where a great deal of trouble would bo avoided, and people would feel more comfortable if a woman could take an acknowledgment. Women keep secrets just as well ns men when there is a matter of importance involved. A notary also has many responsibilities of which his clients are not all aware, and hence people of morality should bo appointed.

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 ocrat. Attend of the Squire.

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 Harper’s Bazar. 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.
