Dr J Lewis Smith The instant a child is born it cries. This is a providential ex- pansion of the !ung3 and not, as many sup- pose, an indication of suffering or pain. If the babe does not cry, we slap It nnd chafe it until the cry that is to open the orgfcns of respiration is heard. Well developed, well formed nod healthy babies cry Instily at birth, while tbe weak child has a feeble little cry. For- the first few mouths, vary- ing with the liodily condition of tbe babe, the cry is tearless, and it is not till the sec- ond year that the lachrymal or tear ducts are fully developed. After that there is a copious shedding, nnd a very slight cause wiH lead to crjing. Children art not born without feiir, and at sight of a strange person, object or an animal a baby of average intelligence will cry. A black black cat or a horse will produce more disturbance in the mind of a baby than a white kitten, canary bird or a white rabbit. Children are visibly at- tracted by any bright object; they never tiro of looking atu bright light-, flowers pltase them, and they are drawn to people gajlyor dressed. A child refnt ing to go to n relative in dark clothes would not hesitate if the suit were changed to a light color, with a white, red or hlua necktie. New 1'ork World.

TO BE SEEN IN EGPYT. IMMORTAL SIGNATURES UNDER THE SPHINX'S LEFT EAR. MmioDi of Chicago, Flndu KkineB of Nstpoleon, Wellington, mcll, mod floit of Top- ped by Illuvtrloiu "My sojourn In nays Colonel Ed ward G. president of the Chicago Historical society, "was wholly delightful. The climate is salubrious, the scenery is novsl, and the natives are politely attentive. Whmi 1 went to that part of the world my health was failing. For several years I had worked hard, and ray nerves had suffered a particularly se- vere strain in Shut famous debate in which, aa president of the Historical society, I was compelled to engage with Hiram At witter, of Kaskaakia, relative to the exact location of Pierre Menard'a barn prior to the June rise m the Mississippi in 1814. t had been In. Cairo but a week when I felt fully re- stored, in corpora et in mente. I return to Chicago epleadldly equipped to grapple wKh the brilliant sophistries of Norton, the artful heresies of Head, the cold pessimism of ilaoVeagh, and such other specious per- saasioas as that talented coterie with which I am wont to associate may choose to bring to bear upon me. "That object In all Ejiygt which moat en- gaged my attention was the sphinx. I vis- ited It a number of times, nnd each time regarded it with absorbing interest My companion at such times was the vener- able sheik, Kamir-el-Abdul, a man of pro- found learning, and I never wearied of the reminiscences with which he beguiled the tedium of the journey to and from the pyramids. "I shall never forget my firat visit to the sphinx. Starting from Cairo before clay light, we reached onr destination just aa tbe solar orb issuing from the glowing east cast upon that mighty stretch of sand the rosy flood of his cracious benediction. The sullen head and massive shoulders of the beast woman loomed up threateningly be- fore us, the pftileasness of forty centuries of desolate loneliness lay like a shadow on the ruthless lace and over the cruel eyes, here at last I found the master expression of utter hopelessness. Observing my unwont- ed I was iodeed awed by the solemnity, the grandeur, and thaawful- uese of tills good sheik sought to dissipate the gathering clouds of sadness by relating certain entertaining bits of historical information. TALKING WITH A SHZIK, 'Here, light of the western quoth he, for he always employed the or- nate metaphors of the orient when he ad- dressed me, 'here the ytara meet and spe one Another. Monarchy of all ages have come hither to commune with this mighty monument to the genius of the dead, hither come artisans to wonder at the vrork of an art they know not of, anc hither repatr the sage, the poet and the philosopher to ruminate in the shadow o: this pile upon the awful mysteries of hu- man life.1 said I, 'the spot is pregnant oi the most solemn associations. It was here that, as I remember to have read in my geography, Bonaparte encouraged his sol- diery to battle by reminding them that frotn yonder pyramids forty centuries looked down upon them J 'Napoleon inscribed his name wpon the sphinx at that said the good sheik. 'Take your spyglass and yon will seethe name cut upon the neck of the sphinx, just below the ear there Beiow it appeals, in Turkish, the name of the great sultan, Ab- dul Hamed, while to the rinht, upon the cheek, you will see the name of Buffo D, the naturalist.' 'The head and face of the sphinx seems to be covered with said I, content pitting the mammoth through my glast. 'It is even ao, pearl of the suid he. 'For many years the threat all nations and tribes have delighted to cut their names into this deathless monument, even your people come bitber to do tbat honorable office, as you thill see if you sweep yonr glass to tbe left uud right nod lip and down the surface of that scarred face "I did as the good sheik suggested, and a thousand noble names were p resell ted lo my enraptured vimon by the uid of my glass. Amoug my countrymen Bay- ard Taylor, Franklin, Burr, Prescott, Beecher, Grant, Longfellow, yes, and a hundred others, representing our statesmanship, our theology, our lit- erature, our arts and our sciences, had en- graved their proud names upon tins his- toric, this this imperishable tablet. CLEAK ABOVE THEM ALL "And the Rreat geniuses) of other nations had been there too I beheld with un- feigned delight tbe immortal names of Wellington, of Cuvier, of Goethe, of vour, of Kosstitb, of Dumas, of Disraeli, of Shopenhaiier, of Heiuc, of Byron, of Scott, of Burton, of Browning, nnd oE other noble musters The Fight inspired me with in desc rib Able feelings, my bosom heaved with conflicting emotions, and I seemed to commune with the iu visible spirits of those who in this human life had borne thote names. "'Would the star of the west choose to set himself amid that gulajcyf inquired the sheik, Kfiimr el-Abdul, interrupting my delicious reverie. '1 have brought with me a chisi'I and n maul, and yonder Arabs will provide us ivith a rope ladder, v here- by the summit of the sphinx can easily be ranched.' "I thanked tho good sheik for tbe sug- gestion Wirhi what, pride should I return to my niime land and announce to my compatriots Uiat my numewjia high in this roster of immortals' With wnat of delight should posterity gather on these Mistering snudqnnd nvut their eye-4 upon the imperishable name of 'E.
