'A NEW PIANOFORTE.' -♦ MESSRS. CRANE & SONS, the Great Piano and Organ Merchants, Liverpool, have just introduced at considerable cost for the present season another 'NEW MODEL.' It has been made to meet the requirements of those wanting a most powerful toned Cottage Pianoforte at a low price, and it has been pronounced by practical judges in the musical world to be 'THE BEST PIANOFORTE' in the Kingdom. The height is 4 feet 2 inches, iron frame, check action, full trichord, in an original design of marqueterie case. The tone is pure, of perfect quality, and the greatest amount of resonance ever produced in an upright Pianoforte, and may be had on most reasonable NET CASH Qv^.nTorxUSon Crane and Sons' NEW HIRE 2s 6d. per week, delivered free, «aii' a warranted for 20 years, on pay- Sample PiLi- rortes are now being shown by CRANP 42' UPPer Sackville-st., DUBLIN.

Bare feet are less common now )yan they were a generation ago, and perhaps the change, while shewing a growing prosperity in the nation, is not altogether to be com- mended. Children's feet grow so fast that to keep them alwayB properly shod is a matter that requires considerable care and some expenditure. It matters very little to a child's future well-being that at some period of its childhood the sleeves of a jacket have been too short or the skirt of a frock too scant; but the compression of feet in boots too tight or, even worse, too short, may be a cause of torment in future years. Infinitely better are bare feet than clumsy, heavy, ill- shapen boots. In the winter the feet may indeed want some protection from cold and wet, but during a great part of the year children may safely and healthfully go barefooted. Some mothers, by no means of the poorest class, are convinced that the comfort and symmetry of the feet in maturer years are largely to be gained by giving them freedom during the time of growth. At a very fashionable marriage some time ago a child bridesmaid was seen silk-robed, but shoeless. Where shoes to fit every stage of growth can easily be obtained, it may seem an excess of care, almost an affectation, to dispense with the conventional foot-covering; but if it makes it easier for the wife of a small tradesman-with whom the shoe problem [is a difficult oae, never solved in a comfortable or hygienic way-to let her children go barefoot if she sees the heir to a dukedom enjoying the full ease of his uncramped toes, we should beseech the duchess to take away his ,shoes.-The Hospital.
