WINTERING YOUR BABY
To Every Mother:
Are you worrying abouthow
your baby is going to get through
the winter?
Are you perfectly sure how to
dress and feed her so that she will
be well and comfortable during
the long, cold days and nights
that are coming?
Miss Elsie L. Burks, RN., a
noted American nurse and in
structor of nurses, has prepared
three articles for The Day Book
on these important subjects.
Miss Murks' life work has been
the caring for babies in the New
York and Chicago hospitals. She
has not only the theory, but long
oractice.in bringing up healthy
babies and making sick babies
well. She was head of the, train
ing school for nurses in the great
St. Luke's Hospital, New York,
and now occupies a similar posi
tion in the Children's Memorial
Hospital, Chicago.
Every mother will want to
read these articles. They are the
latest scientific ideas in child
nursing, perfectly practical for
every mother to carry out in her
own home with her own baby.
The first article to appear in
Friday's Day Book will be on
how to dress the youngster in the
winter months.
A WATER-CLOCK
Canton, in Southern China, has
a peculiar water-clock which, dur
ing the fourteenth century, prov
ed an accurate timekeeper. It is
composed of four copper pots,
standing one above another on a
stairway. They average in
height about two iedt, and are
connected with one another by'
small, "shallow troughs "or open
ducts, through which water grad
usually passes from the highest to
the lowest pot. A wooden rod,
flattened and marked like a rule,
is fixed in the bottom pot in such
a way that it rises as the water
enters the jar, thus indicating
how the time passes. When the
lower jar becomes full it is emp
tied, and the water replaced in
.the top jar again.
