Kid Glove Treatment

Today's UNCLE JOHN'S PAGE-A-DAY BATHROOM READER explains how "Handle something with kids gloves" originated. 
As you know it means to treat someone or something very carefully. 
It comes from the best gloves came from the smooth hides of young goats.  Young goats, or kid, gloves were not worn for manual labor.  So to treat something with "kid gloves" means it or they are getting the "gentle treatment".

But not the Kid Goats.
