ON BABIES. [Newspaper Article] — The Capricornian — 10 April 1875

OK BABEES. BJJ3IES are bundles of clothes wift yellow heads. This is a definition I iiave always used for Babies, and time has not shaken my belief in its truth. I have often used it before. Some months ago I received a letter from the Royal Geographical Society, '?farming me that this definition was inaccurate, as in tropical climates Babies had. black faces and were frequently found without any clothes worth speak ing of. This I don't believe. I have often seen black men, but who ever saw a black Baby? I wrote back, saying that if Or. Livingstone when he came home brought among his specimens of other insects any bbwk Babies, I should have ereat pleasure in inspecting them, and £iving him a certificate, that is, provided they didn't prove stuffed seals or large cockroaches. There are a great number of Babies in the world. Host of them are, however, kept out of sight in cradles, ben coops, aHii!B and old dotiies baskets.

Privileged People. Every coterie has its privileged mem bers — die men who may say what they like, and no one takes offence; the women who mar do what they like, and no one looks askance. The most touchy members of the community bear the plain-speaking of Mr. Downright with the meekness of lambs and the patience of martyrs. He passes over the borders of straightforwardness, and travels far into the region of impertinence and interference ; but he is Mr. Downright and privileged, and the world is content to let htm have his head and roam as he lists. His opinion may not be asked, but he gives it, and no person hands it back to him again as an unwelcome addition, and a free gift in nowise de sirable. Let anyone else try the same thing, and he wul be blackballed as an insolent fellow not fit for gentlemen's society, and trounced as he deserves. He has ventured into die enchantered garden without die magic cakes to cast before die lions, and in consequence be is is tended, while his pri...

SA.TUEDAY, APRIL 10, 1S73. The advantage of agricultural and industrial eihibiaons is now so generally recognised that it is quite unnecessary to marshal areosaeass stt flveir favour. But it may be hoped that the universal I increase of societies having annual show's j for their object, the augmented number ] and «nha'r»'i value of exhibits, and the ever-increasing interest taken in these. displays of industrial wealth, are facts which cany 'greater weight than the most ooodrjave* arguments.
