TlnI WOMEN or INDIA. Many of th& women of India, and especially feose of Cashmere, are beautiful. In a typical Hindu beauty the skin is just dark enough to givo a rich, soft appearance to the complexion. The features are regular, the eyes mild and black, and shaded by long, silken lashes, the hands and feet are small and well formed, the demeanour is aodest, the manner is gentle, the voice low and sweet. There are fine-looking women among the puddle-class Hindus, as well as among the upper %on, and ev^n among the lower class the faces are often very pleasing. Many a Hindu woman who has, perhaps, little pretensions to beauty of face, has, nevertheless, the step and carriage of a princess, and if oae is not too fastidious aboiti jwfection of eyes and mouth incl nose, her figure so she walks down the street, with her load cm hat ted, is truly a beautiful sight.
SUPERSTITIONS Arour BABIBS. There are many superstitions with regard tII! tables which mothers an careful to observe.

Scottish mothers believe their babies will be feicky if they handle thfir spoons with their left tends, and prosperity in later life is supposed te follow many tumbles in the first year. A new-born Yorkshire infant is placed in the arms of a maiden before being touched by anyone else, in order to secure good luck. In the Isle of Man it is said that if anyone walk /•und, or step over a baby, it will be dwaifftd M whencd. Binding the baby's right hand if supposed fit nlW parts of England to secure it *■- Uk,
