either in the bad food the baby had re
ceived or in the want of nourishment,
whioh is rapidly impairing his consti
tution. Then she feeds tbe infant with the
good lactated food, and fears disappear
in the happy smiles of tbe baby.
Thousands of mothers know by ex
perience that laotated food surely pre
vents cholera infantum and other sum -mer
dieordors of a like sburacter, and
in hundred of eases it has cured the
severest attacks of these diseases. It
Is not safe to be without lactated food
in the bonsc.
Babies that are not gaining in weight,
as their mothers wish, and who show
to little animation and interest in
things about them soon gaiti a liveli
ness and zest for living when fed with
this splendid nutriment. They gradu
ally cry less and less; their sleep be
comes sound by night, and by day they
are bright and noisy and happy.
Sueh is the great difference between
babies that are nourished by lactated
food and those that are poorly, because
Tbsre is uo parent in the land bat
ean read the following letter with pro
fit. It is from L. D. Yager, well
known lawyer in Alton, III., and tells
how bis brother's child became tbe
stout, sturdy youngster whose portrait
is s n own a Dove.
"My baby nephew, Henry Hewitt
Yager, was born Jan. 17, 1892 Of
that event he might qnote Richard III
by saying, 'Sent before my time into
this breathing world, scarce half made
np.' At birth he weighed three pouuds,
and there were few who (thought be
conld live. Tho mother was unable to
nurse him, and this made the case ell
tbe more complicated. Sterilized milk
was used, likewise goat's milk, and
three or four kinds of baby food, but
all to no advantage.
"In July it seems a hopeless oase, but
luckily on the 13th of that month a
package of laotated food was procured
which acted like a charm and he pick
ed up right away.- Before using the
food the skin was wrinkled on his
bauds, and he was a frail, sickly little
body. The picture I send you was
taken in Oiitooer 180'2, when the baby
wus about 8i mouths old. He bad
ueodlHctated.lood for something like 10
weeks, and there is no need to comment
on his condition. The pic urn will
show for itself. He still usis the food,
and their is one thing eertain, laeta
tuted food saved his life,"
Too Much Kindness.
A canny Scotchman who keeps a little
shop for tho sale of his national products
not a thousand miles from Ann street tells
a good one ou himself.
His pluco is a sort of headquarters for the
officers of tho State and National line
steamships when they are in port, and they
often bring their follow countrymen here
for nn hour's chat ' iu the little basement
One day a raw specimen was one of the
guests. Ho had just come over, and he was
delighted to find that real Scotch groceries
could lie got in a foreign place. He was
not used to the American style of treating,
and when the proprietor passed a box of
cigars to him he thanked him politely and
"Go on," said the proprietor encourag
ingly, "help yoursel'. It won't cost you a
"Won't cost mo a penny," said the
"Not nt nil, mon. It's the custom of the
"Weil, weil, who'd a thoucht it? This is
too much kindness."
And tho big hand of the stranger closed
around half of thecig.irsin the box. As
the bunch went into his pocket a langh
went up from the steamship officers. The
proprietor acknowledged that the joke wus
on him, and the innocent stranger went
away with a very hif-h regard for a coun
try so filled with kindness. New York

from without or within. Dr. Gregory
mentions of himself that having on one
occasion gone to bed with a bottle of hot
water nt his foot bo dreamed of walking
up the crater of Mount JEtna and feeling
the ground warm under him. He had at
an early pui'kxl of his life visited Mount
Vesuvius mid actually felt a strong sensa

up tho side of tho crater, and ho had more
receutly read Brydone's description of
