crepancy betwixt tho heavenly king
dom and Uils world, or It might bo a
plain caso of colic, called by what new

mained for George B. Uotchklss of tho

cover that Uio baby cries In order to

that ho wants to bo taken up and
petted, or ho wants Uio moon, or ho
wnnta somoUilng elso, nnd "ho won't

denying that for an lnfdnt Industry tho
baby's advertising Is a great success.
