Don't Rook' the Baby
If all the ultimate consequences of
one's acts are to be laid to hie charge,
the man who invented rocking cradles
for children, rests kinder a fearful load
of responsibility. The down-right mur
der of tens of thousands of infants, and
the weakened brains of hundreds of
thousands of adults, are the undoubted
results of his invention. TQ rock a
child in a cradle, or to swing him in a
crib, amounts to just this : the rapid
motion disturbs the natural flow of the
blood, and produces stupor or drowsi
ness. Can any suppose for a moment
that such an operation is a healthful
one ? Every one knows the dizzy and
often sickening effect of moving rapidly
in a swing; yet wherein does this differ
from,the motion a child receives when
rocked in a cradle. It is equivalent to
lying in a berth during a violent storm,
'arid that sickens nine people out of ten,
A very gentle, slow motioa may some
times be , soothing, though always of
doubtful expediency ; but to move a
cradle as rapidly as the swing of a pen
"dulum'three feet long-'—that is, once in a
second-- is positive cruelty. We al
ways feel like grasping and staying the
arm of the mother or nurse who, to se
, cite quietude, swings the cardle or crib
will - a rapidity ,
,equal to that of a pen
&Muni foot log. If any mother is
disposed' to' laugli at ouS suggestions, or
consider theni whimsical, we beg her to
haven bed or cot'huiag on cords, then
lie'dewn in :it herself, and have some
'one swing it with 'the same rapidity that
she allOws 'the cradle to be rocked.
What' she will 'experience in both head
and Stomach is just what the infant ex
periences. We ipsist that the rocking
of children is a useless habit. If not
'accustomed to, rocking, they, will go to
sleep,quite as well when lying quietly as
When shaken in a cradle. If they do
not,tlpawia , trouble : from sickness or

trouble ie.made. worse thereafter by the

A Happy Device
The editor of the Cleveland Herald
termed_ one of a,party,of four travelling
over the Pennsylvania _Railroad. At
Altoona, in order to , avoid the tobacco
spitting nuisance of the other parts of
the train, the party endeavored to enter
the ladies' car, but were politely inform
ed that they could not be admitted un
less in company with- ladies. We will
- let the writer tell his own - story
"We yielded to the ruling as correct.
Just then a gentleman bearing a band
box Mounted the platform; -and the key
was turned in the lock Without a ques
tion. Through the window we saw the
result of the innocent fraud, as the lucky
passenger handed over the bandbox to a
lady; with laughing thanks at the 'com
plete success' of his happy expedient.
Upon that hint, one of our numberspoke
through the window, and out was hand
ed the bandbox. Its second appearance
at the door worked a like result, and the
same ekperiment with the box three
times, - successfully gained entrance un
questioned. The fourth min, and the
'one who had at first been repulsed, now,
with a faint hope of Success, bore the
magic . box to the car door, but the Per
bares of the car remembered faces, and
for a moment hesitated, but as the band
box was raised to his vision, stepped
aside; and with 'Beg your pardon, sir—
I did not see your bandbox,' opened the
car, and the triumph was complete.
The 'bandbox' poWer won over at least
four friends to thallibrised article, who
hereafter will not be found among its
& middle aged Farmer and' his
wire'*ere 'enjoying an evening cozily to
iethir, " when the conversation turned

upon religions matters, as described in
'the Bible, which the Man 'had open be
