Your Winter Baby; How To
Dress It For Cold Weather
This Is the first of n scries of three articles written for
the Times by .Miss V. Kliznlieth Whitman of the Whitman Ma
ternity Home, Tacoma. Miss Whitman is rocojjnized us the
foremost expert on the MM of babies in the Northwest. Sho
| is a graduate of tin- Iliitteruorth Hospital In (»rand Uiiplds,
Mich, (class dI IH!i;i), and since coiniiiK to Tucoina has devot
ed nil her attention to the study of hygiene und scientific
care of infants.
I believe most mothers make the mistake of dressing their
babies too warmly in winter, (ireat heat is not so much to be de
sired as sanitary clothing and hygenic conditions.
For the normal baby in winter a long-sleeved flannel shirt, dia
pers, a pair of long stockings of wool pinned to the diaper, a flan
nel petticoat made like a slip without sleeves and a slip are all the
necessities for day wear.
At night be sure and take off everything that has been worn by
the baby in the daytime. A great many mothers do not seem to
understand the importance of this. A flannel niftht dress or one made
of flannelette, a diaper and stockings are all that is necessary to put
on the baby at night. Many mothers run a string around the bottom
of the night dress and draw it together. This is not s healthful as
to leave it open and ]>ut stockings on the baby. If you are situated
so that you can let your baby sleep out doors put over its ordinary
nightdress a heavy wrap of eider down flannel with a hood that will
come well over its head and add mittens for its hands.
If possible, have your baby sleep in a separate room, but at
least have the temperature as low as 68 at night, with plenty of fresh
air, being very careful to keep the draft from blowing directly upon
the baby.
For tht> Indoor bedding there should be a quilted tidy over the
mattress, and then a sheet, another sheet over the child and one good
warm blanket. This will be found to be entirely sufficient in a
room which grows as cold as 65 degrees at night, provided baby
wears a flannel night dress and stockings.
When you bathe your baby in the morning be sure that it has
had its feeding at least one hour before. It is a good thing to time
Its bath so that you will have it bathed and dressed just in time for
its next feeding. It will then go to sleep for a couple of hours.
Be very careful when you dress it that there are no drafts. The
room should be 70 degrees when you bathe and make Its morning
Don't use fancy frills upon your baby's dresses: make them of
the plainest, softest materials and have enough of them so that you
can have a clean, unstarched outfit every day, if possible. An out
fit of eight little slips perfectly plain, eight flannelette petticoats,
eight night dresses, eight flannel shirts and eight pairs of stockings
tan be purchased for about $7 provided you make the night dresses,
petticoats and slips, and these should last the baby until it Is old
enough to be put into short dresses. If you feel that you cannot
go to this expense get half the number, as it only takes a few min
utes to wash them out every day.
Laces, frills and furbelows add nothing to a baby's health and
comfort —-indeed they are very discomforting to its tender flesh, no
matter how much they please the mother's vanity.
If you want to make some little dainty bit of wearing apparel,
crochet a little hood and jacket to put on baby when it needs a little
extra warmth.
When your baby 18 sleeping do not cover with too many blankets.
If you think it Is not warm enough use a hot water bottle or heated
brick in the bed.

Cynthia Grey's Answers
Dear Miss Grey: Your
sensible mid humane answers
to the wine and other-wine
••uses put before you lias
teni|)U'(l me to lay my com
plaint with the others.
To begin with, 1 notice
you invariably recommend
against "marriages of con
veniences," and I agree with
you. Hut I have been won
dering If you would give the
(same advice against return*
ing to a husband for the
sake of a home? , ■ -,-.;
I married my husband sev
eral yean! ago, anil although
we had little wealth, wo were
very happy. As time went
on, we grew better off, and |
like many another, he could
not stand prosperity. He be
came a confirmed drunkard.
Absolutely without cause, as
lie admitted in his sober mo
ments, he became Insanely
jealous, even .of my sister
and woman friends. He was
obscene, brutal, and beastial.
Finally I left in cheer des
peration, and by so - doing
forfeited my shore of his
estate, according to the laws
of his country. Now I am
broke, down and out, and .
prevented by diseased limb
from earning a living by
manual labor.
He offers me my home and
begs me to return for baby's
sake. I know it would sim
ply be a return to the old
conditions. Hut his money
would give the. child the
chance that I am unable to
give her. And he idolizes
her. Kven in his drunken
rages he would show a wor
shipping love tor the child.
I would not wive her up,
and rather than give her to
him, 1 would take her with
me "to oblivion." That it Is*
foolish to talk like that, I'll
admit, but what is one to do?
I am half Hick with worry,
and the mere thought of go
ing back to him is nauseat
ing. Sometimes, though, I
think I could go anywhere,

day I was well to do. Tell
me, would you go back?
A.—Only on one condition can
I advise you to go back. That is
that your husband consent to take
a "cure/ 1 if he thinks he cannot
stop drinking without. If he
loves his baby better than drink
he will do it.
Do you think what money will
buy will compensate your child
for the home (?) atmosphere you
will give her with her father in his
present state of mind?
I think you will be committing
a greater sin than that of the ig
norant girl who makes a conven

You may develop real love for

very seriously, and put it off a few

does not love you.

should charge SIOc on de

wrong. Will you kindly give
me your best advice? Thank

A. — 20 per cent was at one
time charged on deferred as
sessments. The regular rate Is
now 12 per cent; but by special
statutory act cities of the first
class and some others are given
the right to charge 15 per cent.
Personally, I do not believe 15
per cent right for a city if not
for an individual.

"Is there any rule which may

sleeves into a waist correctly?"
The question is asked as often
as there are seconds in a minute
by women who try to do their
own sewing. Unless you know
how to put a sleeve into a wuist
It 1r one of the most baffling bits
of work In the dressmaking art.
Fortunately there is n general
rule which usually works success
fully if carefully followed. la
fact, there are two good rules:

15 1-2 inches. For this sized

Inside Beam of a sleeve is 2 3-8
inches towards the Front, measur
ing from the under-seam of the
waist, toward the front. Piu tha
seam to the arnihole at that point,
then measure from the under
arm seam of the waist towarda
the front 4 1-^ inches and pin the
sleeve in at that point. Then
measure again from the un<ler-
Rim scam of the waist up towarda
the buck 3 1-2 inches and pint the
sleeve thore. Uetween the 4 1-2
and .'1 1-2 points the sleeve is

and the waist should hr> held to
wards you during this basting to
preserve the curves.
Holding the sleeve next to you
gather tho remaining edge, and
baste Into the armhole, distribut
ing whatever gathers there may
be, with perfect evenness.
The second rule is to crease
the waist, on a warp thread, close
to the armhole, beginning at the
Bhoiilder team and extending to a
short distance below the bottom
of the armhole. Then crease on a
warp thread, close to the bottom
of the armliolo. .letting this crease
cross the first one. At the In

make a third crease diagonally up
to the armhole. Pin the Inside
seam of the cleevo at the point

measurements for basting the
