THE CARE OF BABIES.
Two Methods Ventilated by a Mother Who
Tried the IVrqng One.
The advent of u uuby hIiouIiI not be
the signal for upsetting all the ordinary
rules of a liotide. The baby himself is
much happier and much more likely to
be healthy if from the beginning he is
brought up by method. During the first
month of his little life the youngling of
the human flock is often treated with
Kith indiscretion that it is very hard for
lii ui and for his poor mother to get him
into good habits later.
"I fully intended." writes a young
matron in Harper's Bazar, "to bring
my little Duncan up well from the first
hour of his birth. And 1 would have
had very little trouble if Walter's moth
er had not just then come from Scotland
to visit us. Duncan wus her first grand
child, and the adoring grandmother had
no patience with new tangled notions in
the nursery. 'I rocked lay babies to
sleep.' she said stoutly. 'I never laid the
jioor little things down in their cribs and
expected them to go to sleep. Yes, and
I carried them when they cried. Many's
the time, Margie, that I've carried your
husband up anil down the floor for two
hours without stopping. He was a great
heavy fellow too. 1 would drop down
utterly worn out at last.
" "Nurse the baby by the clock? No,
my dear. I believe in nursing a baby
when he's hungry little and often is my
way. A baby will never be a baby again.
Let him be loved and pcttw 1 while he can.'
So the grandmother, argued, and so, be
ing a resolute person, buxom and strong
of back as of will, she had her way. Dun
can became, bless his heart, the tyrant
and the despot a baby does when he has
his own way. We were abject slaves,
and Duncan ruled us with a rod of iron,
Poor little man! He had the colic per
petually. He woke up a dozen times
every night. When he slept, it seemed as
if we must bush our very breathing, lest
it should disturb him,
"My neighbor, a positive little lady,
with no relations to interfere in fond
foolishness, brought up her wee Johnnie,
according to method. She nursed him
by the clock. Therefore she could leave
the house for a certain length of time,
knowing that he would not, sutler for
food while she was gone, Ho was the
sweetest baby never sour or disagree
able from repletion.
"She never allowed him to be wakened
that visitors might look at him, and she
didn't let ieople IriM him if she could
help tt. As for carrying the baby, that
was absolutely forbidden. He was put
into his cradle wide awake, wnnn ami
comfortable, and was left in a darkened
room to go to sleep.
"There is ro telling how the boys will
turn out when thy are old enough to go
to nchool, but Johnnie is far less trou
ble than Duncan. Not that I would ex
change babies. fhoUghP'

Our mprnlng'a exertions had been
too much for my weak health, and 1
was tired (.ut in the afternoon. After
Holme-.' departure for the concert, I
lay down upon the sofa mid endeav -d'ed
to get a couple of hours' sleep. It
was a useless attempt. , My mind had
been too much excited by all thai, had
occurred, and the strangest fancies
and surmises crowded into it. Every
time that I dosed my eyes I saw be
fore toe the distorted. babonu-HUe
countenance of the murdered man, So
sinistl r was the impression which that
face had produced upon me that I
found it difficult to feel anything but
gratitude for him who had removed its
owner from the world. If ever human
features bespoke vice of the most
malignant type, (hey were certainly
those of Enoch .1. Webber, Of Cleve
land, still l recognized that justice
must be done, and that the depravity
of the victim was no coudouemccil in
the eyes of the law. '
The more 1 thought of it the more
extraordinary did my companion's
hypothesis, that the man had been
poisoned, appear I reinoinbpr how ho
had suifted his lips, and had no doubt
that he hud detected something which
had given rise to the Idea. Then,
again, if not poison, what had caused
the man's death, since there was
neither wound nor marks of strangu
lation'.' Jiut, on the other hand, whose
fjlood was that which lay so thickly
upon the floor? There were no signs
of a struggle, nor had the victim any
weapon with which he might have
wounded an antagonist. As long as
all these questions were unsolved, I
felt that sleep would bo no easy
matter, either for Holmes or myself.
His quiet, self-confident manner con
vinced me that ho had already formed
a theorv w hich explained all the facts.
though what it was I could not for au
lie was very late iu returning so
late that I knew that the concert could
not have detained him all that time.
Dinner was on the table before hit ap
peared. "Jt was magnificent, '' ho said, as he
took his seat. "Do you remember
what Darwin says about music'.' He
claims that the power of producing and
appreciating it existed among the hu
man race long before the power of
speech was arrived at. l'erhaps that
is why we areso subtly influenced by
it. There are vague memories in our
mollis of those misty centuries when
the world was in its childhood."
"That's rather a broad idea,"' 1 re
marked. "One's ideas must be as broad as
nature if they are to interpret nature,"
he answered. "What's the matter'.'
You're not looking quite yourself.

"To tell the truth, it has." I said.
"I ought to be more case hardened
after my Afghan experiences, i saw
my own comrades hacked to pieces at
Malwand without losing my nerve."
"I can understand. There is a mys
tery about this which stimulates the
imagination: where there is no imag
ination there is no horror. Have you
seen the evening paper'.'"
"It gives a fairly good BOddunl of the
alt'air. It does not mention the fact
that when the man was raised up a
woman's wedding ring fell upon the
floor. Jt is just as well it does uot."
"Look at this adVertlsement," he an
swered. "I had one sent to every pa

and 1 glanced at the place indicated.
Jt was the first announcement in the
''Found" column. "In Brixton road

put yourself in that man's place. On
thinking the matter over, it must have
occurred to him that it was possible
that he had lost the ring in the road
after leaving the house. What would
he do then? He would eagerly look out
for the evening papers, in the hope of
seeing it among the articles found.
His eye. of course, would light upon
this, lie would be overjoyed. Why
should he fear a trap? There would
be no reason iu his eyes why the llud-
ing of the ring should be connected

"And then?" I asked.
"Oh, you can leave me to deal with
him. then, Have you any arms?"
"1 have my old service revolver and
a few cartridges."
"You had better clean it and load it.
He will be a desperate man, and,
though I shall take him unawares, it
is as well to be ready for anything."

Holmes was engaged in his favorite
occupation of scraping upon his violin.
"The plot thickens." he said, as 1
entered. "I have just hud an answer
to my American telegram. My view
of the case is correct."
"And that is?" I asked, eagerly.
"My fiddle would be better for new
Strings," he remarked. "Put your pis

As he spoke there was a sharp ring

softly, and moved his chair iu the di

slowly along the passage, and there

into a hearty laugh.
