ME HMD-FED BABY.
A PECULIARLY UNFORTUNATE BEING
IN THE SUMMER TIME.
Hot AVcathcr Trouble for the City In
fantContamination of Cow's ZMilk.
Germs and Taints Dancers Almost as
Greatly to Ko Feared.
The hand-fed baby is peculiarly unfor
tunate in the summer time. The cow's
milk, upon -which it has to rely for the
greater part of its nourishment, may be
derived from a swill-fed. city cow, "that
has no opportunity to breathe the pure
air of the country or to secure natural
food. Sucli milk is, at best, poorly cal
culated to furnish food for a delicate
child. If the animal has tuberculosis or
other wasting disease her milk is simply
poisonous. If the material supplied by
the generous milk can lias been brought
from the green fields of the farms thirty
to fifty miles away, it lias had to run the
gauntlet of a thousand dangers before the
city child has a chance to make use of it
to sustain its feeble life. The milkmaid
may have been too lazy or careless to
properly cleanse the receptacle which first
receives it; the can that brings it to the
depot is, as likely as not, in the same con
dition as regards cleanliness; on the train
it may not be kept properly cooled; at the
milk depot dishonest servants may ab
stract, the cream or increase its bulk with
water from the nearest well or other
source of impurity; while the milkman
himself may tamper with it on his rounds
in order to increase his own revenue.
But the dangers to which the milk has
been exposed before it readies the family
are often small compared with those it en
counters in the home of rich and poor
alike. Xo matter what precautions have
been taken by farmer, transportation com
pany and dealers, every particle of city
milk has become contaminated with the
germs of decomposition before it can be
delivered to the consumer. They may be
lundered from developing by one of two
methods by boiling or by keeping the
milk cold. The former is the only safe
one, but it partially unfits it for food.
Boiling is effective only for a short time
so long as the surrounding air, laden with
new germs of tlic same kind, lias free ac
cess to it. Keeping it cold with ice is be
yond the financial ability of many; be
sides, the ice used for this purpose may
have been cut from the surface of a stag
nant pond and be full of germs of decom
position or of disease. The feeding bottle
is in a vast number of instances the un
suspected cause of death. Unless the ut
most care is taken with such bottles they
are sure to have portions of decomposing
milk clinging to them, which speedily set
up changes of the same sort when filled
with a fresh supply.
NANGKRS ALMOST AS GREAT.
Children who have outgrown the feed
ing bottle are exposed to dangers almost
as great in the shape of hot bread, indi
gestible cakes, pies, meats and stale vege
tables. Food of the best quality, origi
nally, is often spoiled by an ignorant cook
anil rendered practically poisonous, es
pecially for young children. Many a fatal
case of "summer complaint' lias been
traced to green apples, spoiled peaches,
raw cucumbers, rotten tomatoes, or some
form of pork or veal, such as the elder
members of the faivly have eaten with
impunity, if not enjoyment. The heated
term, especially if the sleeping quarters
are confined and not ventilated,
forces the skin to do an unusual
amount of work. The effect of ex
cessive sweating, if frequent baths
are not taken, is to set up irritation of the
surface that results in an eruption, the so
called "prickly heat." Irritation of the
skin interferes with sleep and increases
the general loss of strength besides, by
what the "common man" calls "sympa
thy" (the scientific peoplo call it "rcllex
action," which is equally lucid), the nm
cuous membrane which lines the entire
digestive apparatus becomes irritated
also. This is a common enough cause of
It is easily to be ri, therefore, that
the great underlying cause of all these
troubles, for they are at bottom one. is
tho excessive boat of our summers. The
bad hygiene depends upon this for its fatal
consequences. The European writers are
mostly of the opinion that cholera infan
tum, which is the most rapidly fatal of
these affections, is an Americanism.
They may be rit;ht to a certain extent, for
our own conditions of climate are un
known among the countries of northern
and central Europe. Cor. St. Louis

A Conscientious Impressionist at AVorlc.
I stumbled on the subject of "Impres
Pionism" one day, as I sat chatting with
Lefebyre in his studio in the Rue Ia
bruyere. "Impressionism, indeed!" said
the painter. "Let me tell you an anec
dote. I was staying down at Trouville
two or three yej.rs ago. One morning I
rose early and went down to the beach.
The weather was wretched. Overhead a
gloomy sky rain falling fast and a
keen northeaster whistling to complete
your misery. I should have beat a re
treat homeward without more ado had I
not chanced to glance at the end of the
jetty, where, to my huge surprise, I saw
a painter, wrapped in rugs, hard at work
upon a picture.
'Here a conscientious man, thought
I bent on catching nature in an unlove
ly mood. AndVithno little admiration
in my heart I walked quietly down the
jetty and peeped over his shoulder. What
do you think I saw, mon clier monsieur?
The conscientious painter was one of the
.best known impressionists. The picture
on his canva a study of the coast over
the water at Havre was garish with
sunlight, while the sky was as blue as
any you could see at Naples. After that
I lost all belief in the sincerity of the im
pressionists.' 2s. O. Times-Democrat.
