burden of pauperism and crime. Atnotifr
women, the gross death rate from alco

whiles the male death rate from this
cause Increased per cent, that of

Miss auettl maintained that there

mother were temperate. Numbers of
Infants, she said, were actually nursed
upon alcohol, since the habit of drink
ing beer, stout and other alcoholics
during recovery from child-birth was
a common one among women of ihe
lower classes. And she continued that
this practice was responsible for much
female inebriety, for many women
then tasted alcohol for tin; Itrst times
through the foolish advice of nurses.
Frequently a woman who had reformed
during her detention iu a retreat lapsed
after the birth of another child. And
as though sulllelont Injury had not
already ullllctcd the child through its
mother, its digchtivu disorders were
recklessly treated with drops of (in

A wealthy Kugllshman has pur
chased the little island of Usua just oil
the coast of Kssex to test the value of
total abstinence under favorable con
ditloiis, II,: proposes to con veil the
island into a resort wdiere the sale,
manufacture and consumption of alco
hoi will be entirely prohibited. A large
sanitarium conducted on temperance
linns will be one of the features of the
place. The purpose is to determine
whether total abstinence, will remove
the desire for drink, and whether it
will develop a tendency to the iue of
urugs; also whether It diminishes or
Increases a man's working energy. The
result of thu experiment will bu watch

An exchange calls attention to the
fact that parents should educatn their
children against the danger of petting
strange dogs. Aside from the danger
of being bitten there Is always the
possibility of contracting diseases, as
logs are not the cleanest of animals
and come In contact with tilth of all
kinds. Recent investigations show
that typhoid, diphtheria and other
contagious diseases am carried about
by dogs and eats. Little ouch are al
ways eager to fondle animals but there
is positive danger and often death in
the prnctlre. In many cities otllclal
notice is sent to all school teachnrs to
warn children against It.
