Artificially fed babies die at a much
more rapid rate than breast-fed ba
bies. In the earliest months of the
baby's life exclusive breast feeding
appears to be the only safe method.
Only 46.6 babies per thousand died
under one years of age when breast
fed for at least three months, as
against 165.8 per thousand who died
when fed exclusively on artificial food
up to the age of three months.
Where mothers are employed a
large part of the time in heavy work
babies die at a much more rapid rate.
In one group of 19 mothers whose
babies all died, 15 had been keeping
lodgers, an arduous occupation
among the foreign women, where the
wife, without extra charge, often
washes and irons for the lodgers and
buys and prepares their food.
The city bears its share of respon
sibility for infant deaths. A high rate
of infant deaths is found in coinci
dence with neglected streets and in
sanitary housing. The report shows
for 135 miles of streets and alleys
only 41 miles of sewers and 36 out
lets, only 64 per cent of the streets
paved, and but 11 per cent of the al
leys. In houses where water had to be
carried in from outdoors, the infant
death rate was 198 per thousand, as
against 118 per thousand where wa
ter was piped into the house.
MY LADY'S LIDS
She calls them Tipperary hats,
I don't know why it's so
No woman's lid was ever known
A long, long way to go.
She wears the thing a day or two,
And then to pieces plucks,
When it's good-by Piccadilly
To another thirty bucks.
But what's the use of kicking if
You've really got the dough
Better buy that Tipperary
For the sweetest girl you know.
