The cry of a sleepy baby is as haracteristic as the cry of a baby n pain or of one who is hungry or ngry, and the mother, who under- tands childrea can identify it at nee. One hears it moat often bu a rainful of excursionists coming ome from a day's outing, and often t is regarded as an expression of emper and treated accordingly, ' There is no. use in arguing-Vith, a child who is sleepy, or of s6oklig: -him ffir naughtiness. He is at ]e moment as . Irresponsible as. a hild in great pain, and the sooner e can be got off to bed the better. Often he does not even know his wn trouble, and, with nerves azzled by the need of sleep, will. ght to keep from going to bed. In a state of nature children are ift more to their own devices than the artificial civilization which Vows Spoken b y P a i r a t M. E.

When the desire for sleep overcomes them they yield to it- automatically and doze off wherever they are and whatever they may bo doing. It is amazing how easily a child can relax when alone. One moment he will be talking and playing, and the next there will be silence, and the mother, slipping into the room to see if anything is wrong, will find the baby asleep peacefully among his toys. But when the baby or toddler has to keep up with adults on a pleasure jaunt, he has no opportunity to do the natural thing. He is stimulated-and entertained by\new sights and . sounds which k'eefr-nim from feeling- the need o£ sleep until the point of exhaustion s reached and he is ready, to drop. A lap to crawl into, or a shoulder :o support his head will stop his 'retting where reproof or harsher treatment may serve only to aggravate it.
