Mr. Hedley could not remember

tho Interborough Company can in

HA11 the mothers who come to my'
cllnlo nurse their babies. The women
who are wives of worklngraon and
clerks do not shirk their duty. They
are proud to do it. Their mother love
and their eagerness to learn how o
care for their babies Is touching and
beautiful. Dr. Jacobl must refer to
women of the leisure class less than
IS per cent, of the whole when he
talks about card playing. But it Is tlia
women with whom I come In contact;
who are tho mothers ot the lace. An
anti-suffrage orator said not long ago
that 92 per cent, ot American women
do their own housework. That would
leave 8 per cent, who have leisure to
go to card parties and who, according
to Dr. Jacobl, neglect their babies for
the card table. There Is somo truth In
his statement, perhaps. But, let me
say this: A good cow is batter than a
nervous mother. But a nervous, hys
terical, driven creature la Invariably a
bad cow. Haven't you notioed how
furious a farmer gets It a bad boy
chases his cow? That's because it the
cow gets nervous it affects her milk.
Now, a driven mother Is as bad as a
driven cow. A woman rushing from
one thing to another all day is just aa
much affected as tho cow that haa
been chased, by a bad boy. Bo, perhapn,
It Is a good thing that Dr. Jaoobl's
card-playing mothers don't nurse their
babies themselves. I know one ner
vous woman whoso baby is being fed
on what the Board of Health would
classify as fifth grade milk simply be
cause she insists on nursing It herself.
As a general thing, though, the mother
baby has a much better start than the
"Better fathers are as necessary a
better mothers," Dr. iioiton con
tinued earnestly. "Tho mother nursos
the baby the first year of hla life, but
father feeds it the second year. Thai
Uj. father supplies milk from the can.
If fathers spent less money on drink
and didn't loat on their Jobs so much
mothers would bo in a position to
give their aecond-yeor babies moro
"Then your programme for better
babies is. moro care from mother thu
first year and more care from father
the second year," I summarized.
Dr. Halton nodded emphatically.

Vour nostrils contain structures
which filter (he dirt and germs out
or the air you take. If nature con
sidered it necessary to placo air
filters In your nose do you think It
wise or safo to draw the collection
of filth llicy catch back Into your
throat? When your nostrils catch
tho germs they aro tangled In the
mucus of your nine llko flics are
hold by sticky fly paper. When a cer
tain amount ef germs nnd dirt havo
collected in your nostrils they causo
n di'.-dro to frre them. Vou do this
.by tho natural method of blowing
It your nostrils are cloied the
germs urn caught Just thu same, but
jou cannot blow them out. As the
i-.erliiM accumulate In a clogged
tioilrll they set up an Irritation that
bring tin what Is called catarrh.
Cntnrrh causes a (Uncharge lo form.
This illsclinrgu Is loaded with germi,
Iscl.nr,;e may run out of your
noso und licnp you wiping It away.
Some of fhe dlschtirgo may drop
iinrit into your throat or It may dry
Into crusts In your no.io.
The iiutioyiitico tit choked nostrils
N so great Hint you feel you must
elenr them some way; You find tha'
you enn get relief by drawing thn
tllHcliarge backward Into thn upper
throat. Tlint you accomplish by ,a
strong lutnko of breath, and Is called
"hawking" or (ho catarrh "miuHIc"
Such ti practlco Is unnatural, unhy
gienic, Ih dlKgustlng to other and Is
risky for you. Germs drawn from
your nostrils back into your throat
nro liable to be swallowed. In this
way catarrh of tin; stomach Is often
started mid tho entlru xyslcm U

You urn also apt tn draw germs
from your nostrils Into your ear
