Of all the young of God's vast creation of animated nature, none are so helpless as the newborn babe.

Though perfect in its anatomic construction, yet as soon as breath enters the heretofore functionless lungs, the whole animal machinery of many members moves into new activity; and we can now declare, surely, that a new life exists. The first care that the infant's helpless nature demands is at the hands of the accoucheur and nurse, the responsibility largely resting on the former. The proper start in life, as in every other great undertaking, is an important factor to success. It is fitly asserted,
