Amusements of Children. Check anything approaching brutality in your children's piny : teasing animals or insects, fastoning crickets or grasshop pors, or buinblobecs or buttorflies, to little waggons made for tho purpose, catching fireflies and putting them under tumblers, etc. In tho former caso tho insect noarly always loses a leg fa thing which tho child coolly grows to regard as an accident ovor which no has no control), and m tho Jatter caso, out of tho hundreds caught by chil dren yoarly in their cruel sport, hardly ono conies out unscathed, hardly one iB ablo to fly as it did boioro it wns crushed botween careless, thoughtless, ruthless littlo fingers.
