I had been to tho corn-lot in the hope of finding a few rortsting-ears for Buppcr; but there were nono ripe enough, so I walked Blowly back to the house, with my hands un- der my apron to save them from sunburn ; and the moment I stepped iuto the sitting-room, I BUW the baby was missing. The baby was one that had been left with us—sister Bell and me—while the dear mam- ma went to see th# dear papa, sick in a far- away hospital. It wns a plump, peachy little thing, nearly a year old, named Maude—fa- miliarly called Madge, and more familiarly, Midget. She was as full of mischief as she could hold; crept all about tho bouse, throw- ing things out of doors, or into tho fire, aB camo handiest; thrust her hands behind her and screeched like a hyena, if any one ap- proached to Interfere with her operations, and slept about fifteen minutes twice a day. Her UBual time to be crawling rouud under foot, was in the early part of the day, when the kitchen-work was in progress ; in the after- noon, when the work was all done, and we ready for a frolic with her babyship, tho little nuisance might generally be found sequestered in a corner, hugging a bosom full of matches, or sticking poatago stamps all over her chubby arms. But this time I had left her asleep. She must have been asleep, for Bhe didn't wink, and when the little deceiver was hoaxing me she always winked desperately. I laid her on a rug in a cool corner, and leaving the door open, walked down to the corn-field and back again In about seven minutes, as nearly as I could judge. The baby was misting ! There was the print of her little moist head on the pillow; there were the little blue hinta of shoes, just as she had kicked them off in her play. Hurriedly I went through room after room, searching and calling. Not a glimpse of the little white frock, nor a lisp from tho prattling tongue. \Baby! baby! where are you?\ I cried. O dear Mr. T. B. Aldrich ! It wasn't our baby had in miiid, was it, when you wrote •ct lin Th . lalntle« r darling, rllnif j Mai JliiHhlnn to the foot of the stairs, \O Bell!\' 1 hlioiitcd, \have you «ecn baby?\ \No I haven't 1 , J guoHB not, Why?\ I know by the way Bell spoke that she was not. hall'awake, but, her coolness annoyed me. \You guess not! Wei), she's lost; I went to the lot after mawting-eara, and when—\ A fretful exclamation from Bell Interrupted mo. \O dear me ! Have you looked ha the par- lor? I've not a doubt but she's there, poking over my photograph album. Do look, please, fits.\ Terror overmastered my strong deairc to (ling buck a. snappish answer to this aggra- vating remark. Down stalrn again, I threw open the parlor door, which, having been tightly closed, I bed not before tried. All un- disturbed and quiet. How thankful I should have beon just then to havo found everything topsy-turvey, the phantom and grass bouquets in ruins, and Bell's ulbuin in the smutty fingera of the litllo culprit. With a groan I shut tho door, and commenc cd my Bcarch anew. I opened all the closets and. presses that I had opened before, looked under bureaus and sofas, shook tho ironing basket, llshed in the swill-barrell. All vain, vain ! No baby—no Midget I Then I ran out to the currant bushes, where a few tempting red bunches were still hanging. Bell saw and hailed me from the chamber- window. \ Isn't that pestiferous infant found yet ?\ I looked up to flee the provoking girl sitting by the open blind, braiding her tangled hair BO leisurely. \You unfeeling creature,\ I cried; \will you never have done your dreadful hair, and come and help-me find this child?\ \ Have you looked in the ash-hole, and band- boxes, and the big churn?\ answered this try- ing sister of mine; but I saw her eyes opening very wide, and in two minutes more sho was flouncing about the kitchen with her unfasten- ed braid hanging about her shoulders in a very original style of \waterfall.\ Her movements were peculiar and charac- teristic. She shook the door-mut, jerked the pump-handle, examined the bread tray, and the Hour burrel. Then her eyes fell upon the sink- drain. \She couldn't have got in tliere, now, could BheT 1 questioned Bell, with terror in every feature. ' ' The horrid sewer, you know 1\ And she looked a whole chapter of Victor Hu- go at me in one wretched instant. \Of conrso not. Through a four-inch spout! And put tho strainer in after her !— What a preposterous notion!\ And Bell does not know to this day that, not fivo minutes before she came down, I was working ^the broom handle down that very spout with all my might and main. Out of doors we went, examined the out- houses and clumpa of elder, and finally re- turned disconsolate to tho kitchen. \ Midget 1 Midget U clear, precious little an- gel, where are you'?\ moaned Bell, dropping upon ttio Hcttec. Aa wo Hat with our urma around each other, crying, we heard a very slight, rattling in the direction of the little cook- room off tho kilt-hen. This room contained only a stove and table. The stove was a large-sized Stewart, with an oven occupying the whole lower part. Well, to cut the story short, tho baby was in t/ie oven ! We knew it, Bell and I, as soon as it wus re- peated, and wo sirnultnneouHly rushed for the cook-room. There she sat—the mischief- bolt upright in tho oven, with her head in tho high part and her feet in tho low, treating her- self to tho contents of a blackberry pie, which had been left in from tbe morning's baking.— She looked up at us, ami oh, such a fneul — What with cunning, fright, and blackberry juice, I have never .seen such A face before or Bell caught her out, kissed her comparative- ly (Iran, scolding her all the time. Then she carried her to tbe sink and pumped water on hot without the least four of washing her down the spout. AH soon us the little lady recover- ed her breath, she screamed furiously, and puink'il in the oven with derided ilcmnu»tni- tions of a plim to return to JUT ivn;i.-:. From the Now York Evening Post. How an Illustrated Paper is Made. Among the marvelous developments of American skill and enterprise during the past decade, none haa been more notable than that exemplified in the history and growth of illus- trated papers and periodicals Among the enterprises of this nature we have chosen to- day to allude especially to that which has grown into mammoth proportions under the sole direction of Mr. Frank Leslie, whoso vari- ous publications are known throughout the land. Their readers will be interested to know how the great events and minor incidents of the past war have been made familiar and real to them, and how, in these peace times, all re- markable occurrences, distinguished or notori- ous Dersona«ea...aiid^jiQt4bla-elftG«8, are so promptly and vividly portrayed for them. For this purpose we have recently visited the large establishment which has subsidized so much and such a variety of talent, and which in itself is such an illustration of Ameri can enterprise. Commencing at the private ofllce of Mr. Leslie, we are shown specimens of the pictorial papers of ten and twelve years ago, when—with excellent plates—the pro- cesses of printing were crude and defective compared with those at present in use. Mr. Leslie, it should be said, has been a pioneer in the business, and has been among the foremost in introducing the various improvements which havo been made in it. He was engaged in pictorial enterprises antecedent to his own, the latter of which—that of Barnum and Beach- will be especially remembered.. After the failure of this paper Mr. Leslie started tho Gaxzette of Fashion, and continued' its publication for several years, when he changed it to what it is now—tho Ladies' Maga- After examining the successive improvements made by Mr. Leslie, as shown by his flies, we took a look at the sketches from which the cuts me engraved. These were from all parts of the eountry, some from well-known artists, and many by amateurs of more than ordinary skill. But a portion have been used, or ever will be; but Mr. Leslie, has liberally encouraged all contributions of this kind, and has thus been remarkably successful in getting early and faithful sketches. Hia enterprise in sending artists to the front during the early portion of the war w«s especially marked, and has been well rewarded. During the war fifteen artists were continuously employed, whose sketches were received regularly every morning. Five hundred of these sketches wero presented by Mr. Leslie to the Sanitary Fair. Passing to the department where the engra- vers work, we flrs\t noticed the manner in which the blocks were engraved. Formerly a single block of wood was used; but this was a . slow process, and entirely unsuited for the de- I mands of a pictorial that would represent cur- rent events promptly. Instead df this, several small blockB are now skilfully joined together, upon which the drawing is made. They are then taken apart and each piece given to a dif- ferent engraver. We saw one block made of thirty-six pieces, and which coat one hundred and thirty dollars. The wood la procured from Philadelphia. Going to tho department of the designers, we found an artist sketching on the block a cricket scene for the Chimney Corner. On another block an artist was BKuicxitng xtar-&m*Km,-*»&- lionaire, James M. Beebe, whose likeness was photographed on the block, the artist filling up the lines. Another was sketching the new Hoard of Health, on tho occasion of the inter- view between its members and the butchers.— The likeness of Mr. Schultz, the president of tho Board, was especially noted as life-like. Besides tho large number of artists whose sketches are occasionally received, Mr. Leslie employs regularly over forty engravers and twelve artists to put the sketches on the blocks. His weekly bill for engraving alone amounts to over two thousand dollars. His establishment has, in fact, been a sort of Bchool for artiste.— Many who huvc now a national reputation wero once employed by him In subordinate situations. Mr. Leslie has been, in his way, the means of bringing out a great many young men of talent who would not otherwise have attained their present place as artists. We could mention, if we chose, several instances where an appren- ticeship in his establishment has been the step- ping-stone to fame and good fortune. There are some now in the establishment who have gradually risen from humble positions to occupy the first and best paid placc9. The sketches of some of these, published in the Chimney Corner, Bhow a great degree of perfec- tion. After the drawings arc finished they are taken to the superintendent of this department, who decides which shall be engraved in the es- tablishment. At first the rejected ones were very numerous, as there were but few good artists in the city. Now, however, the estab- j lishuicnt of Mr. Leslie alone has at its service a | large corps of able artists. The excellence of i their work is not fully realized by the public, however, as the present exorbitant prices of ] paper preclude the use of the quality Mr. Leslie | would'desire to have for his publications. One . Bccret of his success iu securing subordinates is clue to the fact that he makes few changes in his establishment. We saw many persons who had been with him for twelve years. He had formerly to give the strictest personal attention to all tho details of his business, but by the in- troduction of numerous improvements, aud by the training of competent subordinates, he has In a measure freod himself from this degree of One of the most interesting features of the establishment is tho room where photographs aro taken on wood. The difficulties to be over- come in doing this wero very great, as the box- wood us\ed absorbs like i\ wponge, aud it was seemingly impossible to wash ofl\ thesilvor wiUi- out warping the wood. There were other equally serious obstacles, which have been all overcome, so that now we have wood-cuts from photographs which are remarkable for I their life-like fidelity. i Descending to the press room, which is uu- | usually large, light and pleasant, we are shown i the various styles of pressed used in the print- i ing of Mr. Leslie's numerous publications.— j These have been all made under his express di- ) rcction, one of them—just imported from Lon- don—having the capacity to print three thous and copies per hour. There arc four double nnd twelve single presses, and forty thousaud dollars 1 worth of paper in this room. In the folding room is a machine that folds three thousand papers per hour. One of the greatest difficulties Mr. Leslio had to contend with arose from the fact that he could not procure the right quality of printing ink. At first he tried imported inks, but these failed. He then energetically set'to work to manufacture for himself, and was rewarded by success in making an article of the required quality. Aside from the interesting features within his own establishment, Mr. Leslie showed us tire- proof rooms in anotherbuilding, where he has stowed away for safe keeping on immense num- ber of wood-cuts on the blocks, the, accumula- tion of many years. Ttio value of these bloclca is very great, thoy having cost not far from a million dollars, and ho, accordingly, has a special guardian for them, who makes it his en- r tire business to take care of them. ! In so extensive an establishment, where so J •many different papers aro prepared and pub- • l^icd, there must, of course, be the utmost (!<•- \n\- of order ami sy^tciu. aud this we found in , a remarkable degree. In each of the several editorial departments, and in the various busi- ness and mechanical departments, we found admirable organization and subdivision of labor, the head of each being responsible for his Spec- ial work. The amount of business transacted can be estimated when we 3ay that the receipts of the establishment are nearly a million dol- lars a year. The circulation of Leslie's papers and periodicals is enormous. If they were cut in strips one yard wide—according to his esti- mate—one issue of them would reach from New York, by way of Philadelphia and Balti- more, to Frederlcksburgh, Virginia Mr. Leslio is the publisher and proprietor of eight Illustra- ted periodicals, viz: Frank Leslie's Illustrated Xeicspa/*!', Erank Leslie's Chimnry Corner, Frank Leslies Illustj-irte Zeitung (GermaD,) Frank Let- lie'^s Illustration Americana (Spanish, j Frank Le*- /y, Frank Leslie's Children's ^Friend, Frank Les- lie's Budget of Fm. These are all conducted by one man, who has never had a partner, and has gradually risen from helm? the possessor of a thousand dollars capital to the exclusive cqn- trol and ownership of this great puplishing es- tablishment, a deserved reward of unfaltering enterprise, skill and good management.— Among the publications we have named the Illustrated News has been the longest and most extensirely known, but others bid fair to equal it in popularity. The Chimney Comer, espe- cially, has been a great success. On the thirty- ninth week of its publication it reached the un- precedented circulation of one hundred aud sixty thousand copies. The other publications have been also, without exception, very suc- cessful. It has been a mystery to some how Mr. Les- lie supplies the great western demand. He has established a branch house in Chicago, where the Chimney Comer is printed from duplicate plates, under the superintendence of hia son, from paper manufactured in that vicinity. The secret of Mr. Leslie's success may be summed up in a single line—he understands every branch of his business—being at once artist and engraver, and the first.who has brought to perfection the art of printing wood- cuts by steam power in this country. Ilow to Treat Children. \Anti-Herodism;\ in Harper, contains the following good word for children: \Pity and love the little children. Tolerate these pets. Comfort Nellie over her dead bird, and don't call Molly's 'little white kitty' a cat.' It is enough to break a juvenile heart to have one's darlings snubbed. How would you like to hear yotir own Frederick Augustus called a \dirty young one t\ The little ones have their deep tragedies and comedies, and laugh and weep more sincerely than you do at Falstaff and Lear. They love, marry and keep house, have children, have weddings and funerals, and dig little graves for dead mice in the garden, and mourn into small white handkerchiefs, and get Brother Jim to write an inscription for its tiny headboard. Is not this human nature in little, and in its Bmall way, deserving of a certain respect! You do not despise your own reflection in a concave mirror, you know. Cherish the children; mend the frocks; don't scold them for broken toys—for man is not more inevitably mortal than playthings. Don't strip their fat shoulders i>fc-wi»fr»i>i wr>r-~gnjiar_ _tliom in ^Iflnnplfl In dQjjT- days, because somebody told you to. Doift drug' them; don't 'yarb' them; don't stuff them with pastry or starve them on chippy bread; don't send them to infant schools at three, or fancy balls at ten, nor teach them tho Commandments earlier than they can remember Mother Goose. Let them have Christmas and fairy-stories; grand-pa's horse-cane rather than Mr. Birch's ferule; Little Bo-Peep, not English Reader: Mary Howitt, not Jamieson's Rhetoric. Give them Wilson's Readers wheri they want them, not before.\ Hans Breltman's Party. Hans Breltman glf a barty—I fell'd in lofe mit a Mirlcan frau. Her name was Mndilda Yane.

IICTC is one for the legal fraternity and ex- pounders of the law : Mr. was arrested for appropriating oats from R 's wagon, for which he could show no receipt of pay- ment, and taken before Dr. , a justice of the peace. When the accused came in to court, ho demanded a jury trial, which was granted. The jurors came in and took their seats, when It 1 B counsel commenced challenging the jurors for cause. One of the best citizens of tho county was objected lo. Tiie counsel was asked to state his objections. t \I object to this man'B acting as juror, be- cause ho is morally incompetent. Over a year ago he had his collar-broken firing a Prussian musket at a wild goose ; and any man that is such a fool as to use one of those guns is morally incompetent to sit on a jury I\ The judge decided the objections well taken, and the juror was dismissed. Tho Prussian musket is the arm furnished to tho militia of Dakota by the general govern- ment. WHOLE NO. 564. PEACE PROCLAMATION: BY THE KRESIDEH?. WABHIXOTOK, April i . The followinf?
