arations, nil of wlikli nre nnrcotlo, Is well known. Cven In tho smallest
doses, If continued, these opiates causo cliangco In tho functions nnd growth of
the cells, wlikli are likely lo becomo permanent, musing Imbecility, menial
perversion, acrnvlng fur nlcoliot ornnrcotlcsln lalcrllfo. Kcrvous diseases, sucli
as Intractable nervous dyspepsia and lack of slaying- powers, are n result of closing
wllh opiates or narcotics to keep children quiet In tliclr Infancy. Tho rulo among
physicians Is tlmt children should never receive opiates In tho smallest doses for
mora than day at a time, and only then It unavoidable.
The administration of Anodynes, Drops, Cordials, Soothing; Syrups and other
narcotics to children by any but a physician cannot bo too strongly decried, and
tho druggist ahoul'd not bo a party to It. Children who arc III need tho attention
