NURSERY HINTS. In furnishing the nursery be careful not to 'fill the room with useless objects. A sleeping- room should not contain more furniture than is absolutely required for the child's use. It is best to stain and varnish the floor, laying down a removable carpet or mats. Fill up the crevices between the boards of the flooring with putty, and varnish them over. These spaces are too often tho raceptacles for dust and dirt, and anything which could in any way vitiate the air of the room should be, eliminated. Never put starch in babies' underclothing. The linen which touches their delicate skins should be as soft and fine as possible, and any hard tucks or coarse \:1; •nast be o voided. Pvon in the case of bigger children, a too free use of st-3r"b is to be condemned, the stiffn<:>6s being so PFL.<s»1y inclined to chsife the small limbs, --speci- ally when taking active exercise. iioico "j a child's shoos should be made with care. On a wise selection in the first early years of life much of the future comfort of an individual may depend; and many a well-formed foot, which is the pride of its owner, owes its immaculate shape to sensible treatment in child- hood. A baby's foot is naturally wedge-shaped —narrow at the heel and broadening at the toes. It is unwise to provide a child with boots which are too big for it, in the hope that it will grow to thom." If they should be a little long in the foot, the old-fashioned method of putting a. pii.'ce of cottonwool in the too cannot be im- proved upon. The straps should never be tight over the instep, and care must be taken to see that the soles are quite smooth and even, as a curled-up sock is agony to a delicate foot.
