I SUPERSTITIONS FOB MOTHERS. I There is a world-wide prevalence of superstitions concerning babies that mothers are most careful to observe. For instance, a German child is carried upstairs after it is horn before it is ever taken downstairs. Should the child chance to come into the world in a room on the top floor the situation is maintained by the nurse mounting a chair or table, with the infant in her arms. Scotch babies are considered lucky if they handle their spoons with their left hands, and they will be -very happy and successful in later years if they have a great number of falls before they are one > year old. Manxmen believe that if anyone walks round a baby, or steps over it, the little thing will be dwarfed or wizened. A new-born Yorkshire child is placed in a maiden's arms before being touched by anyone else, in order to ensure good luck whilst in other parts of England people bind an infant's right hand, so that it may have wealth when it grows up. ♦
