Teal !y distressing sometimes of an afternoon to witness the rff? ct produced by nurse* vieing with each other .a decorating their poor little infant charges so a to make them look genteel.

In the country, proper ly so ca le I, how diff rent. ThttJ children are allowcl to kick off shoes and stockings if they pi. a-*o iu hot weather, and to run Hbout a.* and where they ehooec. The effect is th it they grow ap robust and strong, with hou'.thy mind'* in healthy bodies The effect of these city fashions, pusbed to the ex'rrtine.'t they are, upon hrnlth, is r.oi easily to be estimated. A child, drc^edup in fine clothes, eanno* take proper haartv ex. r cise. Its movements are all watched and eon strained by the iiupos. It never stirs without the fear of being .-colded by somo one f.>r dis arranging its curls or soiling its clean dress, llow Uii-'vr. ble aiithij constraint upon its free dom.

This bn?> drc>sing mu.*l be u .-ource of count less irritations. Th?> nurse acquires the habit of perp.-'nslly nuar.p:Dg. interfering, watch ing and checking ail the fiee nations of child hood. and th? little one learns io believe that to sit still, and take the-o lectures meekly is the Vc?y c-s.-.nce of beiog a good child. lis spirits broken iu, an ! it bccames a docile su. pliant, instead of a free, bold, and invig.?rous child. No wonder itachc<k is j ale. and lie doctor is constantly needed, or that it gr^ws u;> nervim/. irritable and peevish. The direel rosl of ?=.!} this is no trifle. It may gratify a parent's t-icto for the moment, jfratity th;.t !*ind of af'ution wbich loves to nestow costly tokens of regard, however use less or irjurious. bnt where is the piudeni mo ther that would not better show her kir,dnesa by creating a little fund. and saving all the"1 supcrfl\?>u- eiptwes for its use a: a future day?
