All aequaiiitnnceof mine who bad removed
from Newport, R. I., to Cambridge. Mass.,
was asked what was the social difference. He
said that ho could porceive none oxcept that
there were fewer handsome equipages, and
that young mothers wheeled their own baby
wagons. This last point of observation quite
restored tho balance, for what gorgeousness
of livery can compare with the proud faces
of such parents, and what occupants of a
phaeton or a barouche-landau can have such
felicity as beams in the face of that rosy
little creature, to whom every individual
atom of the great universe is an inexhaustible
novelty ? My friend’s remark was, I fear, a
just one: I can recall but two young mothers
among my immediate circle of acquaintance
in Newport who habitually took out their
own babies for an airing, while in Cambridge

It would, of course, l>e very unfair to deny

those who habitually send out their young
children with a nur«e; there are many pre
occupations, many inconveniences, that may
be in the way. The thing of which one may
justly complain is the tradition prevailing
tmong the well to do circles of many cities,
■ast and west, north and south, that the
mother is never to take out her child. This
seems to me a wrong both to parent and
child, as much a wrong as the habit still
lingering in France of sending n young child
to dwell with a nurse, the mother only visit
ing her occasionally; or the habit formerly
prevailing in the English upper classes,
which forbade a mother’s suckling her own
child—a habit so fixed that when Georgiana,
Duchess of Devonshire, broke through it,
the poet Coleridge wrote her a resounding
ode, as if she had done some great de^d:
O lady, nursed in pomp aud pleasure,
Who taught you that heroic measure!
In the present case the “heroic” young
mother who wheels her own baby wagon
gains the felicity of the fresh air, to begin
with; she shares the happy littlecooings and
jointings of her young charge; she is asso
ciated with its first contact with tho world
outside; she will never forget these sweet and
simple associations, and she will always be a
part of them to her child. Site has, beyond
this, the inestimable satisfaction of knowing
that her child is cared for; that it is not
wheeled against the broad sunlight till its
eyes water, or pushed backward till its
brain whirls; that it is not left to cry un
heeded while the nurse gossips with her fifth
cousin, or taken furtively into some ba/’*'-
ment kitchen reeking with tobacco or onions,
and not unsuspected of diphtheria.
I read the other day in a woman’s essay,
which had many good points in it, ffivo as
sertions which seemed to me very wide of
the rrtrrf’k. The first was that there is now
hardly such a thing in America as a fresh,
simple, unspoiled child; to which statement
I should oppose the objection that there are
at least a dozen of these rare beings in the
one short street where I happen to dwell.
Tho second point was that we should find a
remedy for this alleged evil in introducing
the English system of keeping children ns
much as possible in nurseries, and having
them as little as possible in contact with the
family life. Had this statement been turned
just the other way it would have seemed
more reasonable, for surely it is where there
are most nurses aud nurseries—in America
at least—that one finds the artificial and self
conscious children, while the simplest and
most genuine are in those households Where
servants are few or none. This whole philos
ophy seems to me far less sensible than that
of a little boy of my acquaintance, who once
made a protest against the whole race of.
nurses in these plain terms: “Mamma, I de
wish I could l)e taken care of by somebody
that lives in the front ¡»art of the house.”
This criticism involves no injustice to
those kindly and child loving races who sup
ply nine-tenths of our nurses—the Celts, the
negroes—and one sometimes finds among
them individuals of a quality so superior
that they are wholesome and innocent com
panions for any child, and even ignorance
forms no bar to a life long and genuine
friendship. But what risks are run to tem
per, to health, even to morals, in the effort
to find this ¡paragon! How many poor little
things owe horrible, frightful terrors and
nightmare superstitions and manifold last
ing injury to being intrusted almost un
watered to persons to whom no one would
intrust the training of a pet animal! One
may see households where a man servant
who should kick a favorite dog, or even
speak angrily to a high bred horse, would be
dismissed instantly, and yet where delicate
and sensitive children may be scolded and
twitched about and even chastised by nurse«
of no higher training and principle.
I know a family whose sweet faced nurse
was the admiration and envy of all who
came to the house; it was nevertheless not
intended for an instent that the power of
punishing should be placed in her hand«; nor
was it discovered until weeks after she had
left the family that she had l>een in the habit
of taking her little charge privately into the
pantry and putting mustard on her tongue
by wav of punishment for such sins as can
be committed at 3 years old. The inhumani
ties of parents, on which a brilliant Ameri
can woman once wrote an essay, may be l>ad
enough, but it has always seemed to me that
the worst inhumanity, in the long run, was
to leave a child to the unwatched control of

that it is seldom seen. Kind words cost

Diet of Cake and Pickles.
“My Jennie has such a dainty appetite I
don’t know what to do with her! She just
won’t eat anything but sweetmeats and the
Thus exclaimed a foolish mother in my
hearing the other day. Yes, lamentably
foolish is she for allowing such a condition
of things to exist. We are told by the
matchless bard that desire grows upon what
it is fed. The child desires dainties, and the
mother oft gratifies that desire. Soon the
mischief is done, for the dainty appetite is
quickly formed. Apropos of this: A ruddy
German girl of seven summers was adopted
by childless people of means. The indulging
process was early begun by them, for it was
» pleasure to give the child all the goodies
that she could well eat. Ere long a scorn for
substantial food possessed her, and the mere
;hought of the plain but healthful fare of hei
Jerman home excited great disgust. Dain
ties formed her, daily living, but think you
that her robust German parentage preserved
her from paying outraged Mother Nature’s
penalty? No, indeed! She fell a victim to
consumption while yet in her teens. The
poor, abused digestive apparatus could not
manufacture good blow!; the great waste
a as not supplied, and “galloping consump
tion” claimed another victim.
While on the cars, en route to one of Min-
icsota’s beautiful lake resorts, I was attracted
by an anxious mother and her unfortunate
invalid daughter who occupied seats near
The wan cheeks, the hollow eyes and the
languid air all told their own sad story of

a morning meal. A
large lunch hamper indicated a long journey.
L did not observe the mother’s choice of fare,
jut the delicate girl who had so aroused my
sympathies made a hearty (?) meal of rich
cake and pickles. Yes, she devoured three
wholo pickles and a piece of cake. Think of
it, mothers—of supplying the enormous u«ste

md pickles! Could one drop of good blood
emanate therefrom? Would disease have

vented such unnatural appetite? She seemed

pickles. Indeed, in this instance I fear that

To a nervous old man, depressed by a long

By tiie bedside of a sensitive woman at

llear tones, “There is no hope. I see the

You will find, if ill for several weeks, that
some of your Inst friend will study your ap
pearance and report with startling frank-
uess: “Why, my dear, how you have

you too much; we can’t get on without you.”
This is said with the kindest meaning, but to
the “puir sick body” it means faintness or in
creased fever, or a cry after the visitor has
departed. Whatever may be your disease,
the conversation, instead of turning upon
the cheerful and engrossing topic« of the

condition, and instances are given of Mr. 8o-

A Difference in Dress.
At a dinner and reception a young married
belle was in the sulks. 8he had flounced her
self into a chair, and turned her back on her
husband, who was angrily red clear over the
bald top of his head.
“I’m sure I’ve got as fine a dress as any
body here,” she was heard to poutingly say.
“But you look as wooden as a Dutch doll,”
ho blurted out.
His criticism was sound if not amiable.
The young woman wore much flufiiness of
white skirt, her bodice suggested sheet iron,
so stiff wore its outlinesand so unyielding its
aspect. It was a new thing called the armor
waist. It had no sleeves, and over the shoul
ders were merely ribbons, tied as though to
hold up the bodice. No woman could be
graceful in it.
Near by sat a willowy girl. Her gown was
fashioned of thin cloth, which took its folds
from each movement of the wearer, like the
garments of the ancient Greeks. The fabric
in each fold perfectly adapted itself to the
figure, the draperies having actually molded
themselves to the form of the wearer. An
enwrapping of the slender waist with a wide,
soft sash, added to the charming effect of
pliability. A demure air was worn with this
gown.—New York Sun.
The Teaclier’ii Responsibilities.
Is it not the mother’s business to know the
skill of her child’s teacher as well at least
as that of the physician who prescrilies for
his sore throat or the tailor who measures
him for his first pants! It is only in desper
ate cases that we can bring ourselves to pull
the door bell of a strange doctor and sum
mon him to our house. As a rule, he must
be known and accredited, even tested, before
he receives our confidence. Yet an ignorant
or vicious teacher may work immeasurably
more harm than any doctor, if we admit
that the soul is worth more than the body.
We have divine instruction to the effect that
we need not fear those who have no power
to kill the soul. An unscrupulous teacher

“As I told you, the secret of cheap living

first place, every economical housekeeper
should learn htw to compose her dinners. If

the next day you have a cheap one combined
with farinaceous food, such as macaroni or
beans, so that both dinners will be equally
nourishing and the one balance the other.—
