So when tho colonel riz feet forerpost
for tho third time outern Lis bunk that
uiht or, I should say, moruin', for it
was mighty near moruin' uuw-wo looked
for hail Col urn by.
"Look a hero, my good woman." sez Lo
to tho young woman with tho baby, "as I
wuz tellin' you aforo. von must d. .-r
pin to keep that child quiet. Itll never
do to keep all these folks awako like this.
They ve paid for a good night's sleep, nd
it s my duty as a director uv tho Ilan'bul

I ye raised a family uv "lovcn children nd
I know, as well as I kuow anythink, that
t hat child Is hungry. No child ever cries
like tLat when it isn't hungry, so I insist
on your nursin' it 'ud giviu us peace 'nd
I uc-n tho young woman begun to sniffle.
"Law me, sir," says tho young woman.
"I ain't the baby's mother I'm onlv iust
tendin'it." 3 1
The colonel got pretty mad then; his
face got red 'nd Lis voice kind uv trembled
Le wuz so mad.
"Where is its mother?" sez tho coloneL
"Why isn't she hero takin' car uv this
hungry 'nd cryin' child like she ought to
"She's in tho front car. sir." tli
young woman, chokin up. "She's in the

Now what would you or me have done
what would any man Lavo done then
nd there? Jost what tho colonel done.
Tho colonol didn't wait for no second
thought; Lo jest reached out Lis big bony
hands 'ud he eez, "Young woman, gi me
that baby" sez it so quiet 'nd so gentlo

The colonel took tho baby and rWfr,

The colonel called tlio nigger. "Jim,"

Tho baby didn't cry no mere that night;

to tr.ko on. The nigger run back as fast
ns l:o could 'nd told tho voting woman
that bhe'd have to keep that baty fiuiet
. because Col. 'Lijy Gates, oue uv the direc
tors uv tho road, wuz in the car and wunt
be disturbed. Tho young woman caught
l'.p tho baby scart like nd talked soothin'
to it 'nd covered t little face with her
fthawl 'nd done all them things thet
women do to make babies go to sitep.
But the baby would cry, and, in spito
it a'd the young woman 'nd the nigger
fould do. Col. Klijah Gates heard the baby
rryin', 'nd so Le waked up. First his two
bine yarn socks come through the cur
lain "nd then his long legs nd long body
'r.d long far? hove into sight. He com
down the car o fho young woman 'nd
!ooki at her over his specs. P'dn't seem
to bo in least bit mad; jest solemn 'ad
"My dear madam," 6? z he to the younj
jvoiaan, "you must do 6umpin' to keep
that child quiet. These people have all

Many persons yearly mato tho very sad
mistake of neglecting their eyes until
they begin to see tho mist before them,
until tho object they are looking at must
bo brought verv close to the eye to bodis
cerned, or until the print in tho book they
are reading becomes all blurred, and then,
when in many cases it is too late to re
pair the injury that has been caused, they
begin to seek udviea Every year there

but. perhaps, of all persons whose es
pecial duty it is to know them, tho mother
has tho greatest need of it. She. at least
)f all persons, hhould know thut tho
luman eye of tho child whose in f;mcv H
vhe first few years of its tender childhood
are especially entrusted to her caro, for
very often it is in infancy, when tho child
is yet but a few months old. and has not
left the nurse's lap, that its little eyes
are injured for life.
It is natural that, when we havo ar
rived at middle age and begin descend in"
tho hill of life, our sight should coin
mence to fail, but how are we to preserve
it as long as it is possible? First, by hav
ing our competent mothers and nurses
take care of them for us while wo are yet
infants. In a day or two after birth it
will perhaps be noticed that tho lids are
swollen, and perhaps that some irruptive
disease has set in. In such a caso the
mother or nurse will do well not to try to
bo doctor as well as oceunyinir tho trvintr
position of either mother or nurse. A
skillful practitioner should at onco bo
called in to seo tho child, that is, if the
symptoms become at all serious, because
it is at tins verv time that the sight of
tho child may be seriously affected and
perhaps permanently impaired. Above
all things don't in such cases try moth
or's milk; neither bo overanxious that
tho child may bo hungry, and thereby
overfeed it. IJemember, first of all, that
a low diet must bo given in such cases;
this is imperative. The child should at
ouco be taken from a place where thero is
a strong light and kept in a room where
tbe sun or artificial light has been sub
dued. A conscientious physician will in
most cases bo able to effect a rapid cure
and save tho child from untold agony,
which it might have to endure when it
grew older if neglected now.
CARELESSNESS OP NURSES.
Nurses frequently allow the child to lie
in their (tho nurses') laps, and in such a
position that in order to gazo about it, the
infant must roll its eyes until sometimes
it is staring at objects oyer its forehead
or with its head tipped back it is looking
at objects upside down. Tho careful
nurse and tho thoughtful mother will
never allow the child to reclino in this
