Most of us have had troubles all

Mothers as lcclor.s.

of the most common sense facts iu
the physical culture of these little
ones known to the more experienc
ed mothers may not come amiss to
thoso who have but little care of
children. The foundation must be
well laid to insure healthy aud hap
py children. The child must be
well slept, well aired, well fed, and
well bathed. By a thorough under
standing xnd practice of these four
siinplo rules, much of the physical,
mental aud moral suffering in life
would be avoided by parent as well
as child. If a healthy child (aud a
delicate one proportionately) is re
gularly put to bed about dark, in a
quiet, well veutilatcd, or even cold
room, after a supper of plain food,
it will naturally awake at day-break,
good naturcd, with a keen appetite
for a wholesome breakfast. Nutri
tious, plain food, at regular hours,
with no candy or stimulants, aud
free bathing, helps the system to
ward off many prevalent children's
ailments, aud to bear with m;;oh less
danger the few that .must necessari

ones. The child that is given just a
little confectionery, or any unsuita

should cause no surprise at waking

the result of imaginary affectiou or
want of knowledge on the part of

The reason given by Guizot for
the prosperity of the French is full
of interest: "Habits of prudence

has long been so doing, 600,000
francs a year. The wealtlfof France
has at least doubled during fifty
years; and, as the population has
augmented during that time by
only one-tenth, it is obvious that the
comfort of the people has increased

The Memphis Avalanche says:
There was a touching little scene on
one of our streets yesterday. A
kind hearted lady was going to sec
a sick friend, when she heard her
name called. Turning, she saw a
slender girl, dressed in mourning,
advancing toward her. As tiie child
came nearer the lady recognized in
her the daughter of the neighbor
who had died the day before near
the city. The little girl threw her
arms about the lady, and, sobbing,

'Everybody else is," said the poor
girl. "They won't come near me,
because papa died of the fever, and
wc were with him, I and mamma."
The little girl's heart was stung
by the chilling repulsion which came
to her in so deep a sorrow.

A ludicrous instance of punning
upon a name once took place in a
Judicial Court of New York, which
is thus told: Counsel had been
questioning a certain witness named
Guun, and iu closing he said to him :
' Mr. Gunn, you can now go off."
The Judge on the Bench, seeing the
pun, gravely added, " Sir, you are
discharged." Of course an explos
