Alter this te gone and the child
uas become iteell to go about

then be time to give or. form a
general idea as to bow tbe child

want me to form my opiuiou as
to who it looks like, to which ' I
have answered . The babe is young
aad 1 cauuot tall as yet for ail

this way. I have been told by the
way I bare been brought up and
yet it was never discovered until

been so, Ishoaldr bave basn- a

'-HOi HOOD.'
We now eonie to s little more
advscd stage of the youth hav
ing had the first stages of baity
hood for the last IS months be
grows iu the shape of a boy, hie
clothing L.a to be lengthened,
bis buttons made larger and his
whole development from bis tiny
waist to a larger proportion to
that of a small boy youug, ac
tive full of pranks aad notions
up to tricks getting in all kind
of miacbief borne or abroad.
Boyhood is a matter of great
importance, what the boy is, ao
will tbe man be. We must, look
to education, select good schools
and beet teachers and if the boy
eome, ia course of time a bright
aud active student. Boys are
different in this respect while
others are busy with their books
others are m 'mischief that : it
keeps a mother eye on bim lor
many a year. Have we ever tbe
peculiar workings, tbe mind has
over tbe boys during tbe time of
youth op to the time they are
21. Tbe first period ia known ae
fun with the boys, tbe last ob
servation ie known as tbe imper
fect gentleman and that of per
fect one Jn every respect.' The
imperfect boy a.t times ig bard to
control aud require a great deal
of watching in order that be may
not become too bold. Some boys
need more discipline than others.
While others need more, for what
the boy is, that is what a man
he ' will m ake. Boy h ood is n at u r
ally the last step the father made
before he died, he set his wa.vs
anil as to how he wished his boy
brought pp nml if lie win a good
man and a html working end n
temperate man, liv t-fie roy will
surely follow sooner or later into
the road his fa.ther went. But
shonld the father be otherwise
n ungentleman Hud bad ways,
why his boy will lie th same.
Boyhood is not an ensy matter
to always lie relied upon aml tlip
only thiiiK is 'o choose n good
aim in life and then follow good
company, keep out of bn'd tempt
ation. and alwaye N h ippy at

The woman who wishes to enjoy

upon any one nndoviating roothod
for preserving thoni, but will rtitnor
vary it, acoordiTig to tho different
causes which load to tboir decay.

We must be guided in our expecta

however, by its normal life and not
expect the frail blomom of a day to
