It tetcii birdiv itrange then that ffOtn forty to fifij children out of every one hundred that are born ahould fail to com plete theirClth year, having to run r-ucha giunllttof lernblediwea. A careful iudy of thete variou" dieaaes nflcctirg infantile life, enable u to group tbeui under five general bcadingi: 1. Disease of digeative organ. 2 Dlteua of the cervoui evatem, (brain eiiinal cord and nerved. 3. I)i-MM of respiratory organ. I Serofuloua or coniumptive diwasee. fi. Infectious and cootagioua diseases. Tlie firl f roup will at rtent engage our atlcction, ae the rcope of there articles it to treat of the care of children during the um nier siontbr; anl rt'i.eieea of the digcetive tract, from the month to the rectum, morl undoubtedly by tlirir frequency and fatality are the moot important of afiVctiong of early life at thia teaeon. Aa has already been elated, from thirty five to fifty per cent of all death occurring in ciliee are of children urder five, and from twenty to twenty-five j r cent are of child ren uu.ler one year of age. Of this percent age of mortality it is ascertained that one. half of the former and three-fourths ol the lat'fr are earsed by diarrLaal disorders. Under1 this dreipnat'on, "diarrhccil dior i!ers,H may be tmbiaceJ t.iarrhcca (simple an I chronic), drienlery or bloody flux (aiui plr oi chronic), cholrrrf infantum, cholera tool lu", pi" ri i (inflimmaiionof the stom ach), eiiltriti (it ilauimation of boa els), Kartro ft ttntia (irfluuniation of stomich and boatls), colitia (Jr tltniniation of large ir.lestinw , eutero colft (inflimmation of fmall and large itiUr-lian), marasmus or latea mesenteries, the latter being derange limit of biKclecaLse-l by scrofulous or tu tierculom disetaj of their absorbent glands more rcieriy belonging to the fourth class Con.ipation may here be mentioned as a tut at important aid constant affection of the inle-tinl tract, an aflfCtion which though simple in itsolf may be the precursor of ma ny grave maladies ar.d therefore entitled to special description. The prrdipo-ing conditions and exci'ing c u ci of and all the circums'anceo influen cing these vario'H di order will now be la kin up and cjisu'ered under the following cUs4iiicit oi : Age, locality, season, diet, colling, bathing, light and vtntilation; ur-ing, treilnnr, weaning, sic pit g and (.rowtb.

It is doubtful if arv child has laved Ihruugh the 'i -t and secDod summera with, out an attack in some fegree of this summer complaint. In children the nervous aystem haa not Jul y developed, and in this imper fect stage become easily deranged. During tbe firt two or thrte years of life a flight irritation of the eitrem ties of the cerve will aO.it the brain and spinal cord in most s-rion manner, aa when intestinal worms from irri'ation hey produce on tbe extrem-I itics of tl e nerves, supplying the mucou lining of the bowels will, through this im pression being conveyed to the spinal cord and brain, and then lent oat to the various muscles of the body, produce a series of frightful convulaions. A slight attack ol diarrhoea will through the same influence cause a child to be restless and disturbed, es pecially during deep, when the eyelids will twitch and remain open, the ball roll up ward and oscillate and the facial muscles by their contraction, all indicate that tbe nerve centers aw receiving and sending out im pressions. The smile of the sleeping Infant was formerly attributed to communications from the angel-; but science has again taken from us a pleasant conceit by saying that colicky spvms of the bonelsty a reflex ac tion on the nerve centres cace the play of the muscles concerned in laughter. Among other causes operating during ear ly life to interfere with the normal functions are premature birth, berediliry taint of tome kind, milformations especially affect ing mouth, nose and digestive sjttem. As a contracted and unduly developed bridle of ibe tongue; someiiwej a coryza or cold in the head by preventing hreithiog through the nose, will eeriomly interfere with the act of sucklcg and cause stomach and bowel derangement.
