f BEP WETTING. Your corres
'pondent desires to know a remedy for
'children wetting the bed, stating that
rtoo much, room is taken up in the

self of the bad effects of bed wetting
" by hiring say half a dozen nurses at
525 per week to watch the child con-j-

this she must realize that bed wetting
" too comes f roin. an economic source.
