A« J. Booker, M. D.
In the light of new investigations
in medicine, and as old data are pon
dered anew, more and more attention
is being given to the health of chil
dren. Th® conservation of youthful
energy, the pre
vention of infec
tion and detailed
instruction in hy
giene are the
keynotes of pre
ventive medi
cine.
Before the new
ideas can become
entirely useful
some very old
or.co must be eradicated, absolutely
forgotten. There is no more reason
thftt a child should have measles,
mumps or whooping coogh than it
should be hit on the head with a
brick. These diseases do not lonfer
immunity, nor do they, or boils, puri
fy the blood. The fact that a person
has never been sick before does not
make them more liable to die than
if the same affliction befell a person
who has had all the diseases in the
category. There is as much reason
in getting sick as an insurance
against further sickness as there is
in gettiny a leg broken.
The future efficiency of citizens,
granting that they are born normal,
depends very much on the develop
ment of several glands, or which we
hear little. These glands are called
superrenal, because they are situated
on top of the kidneys, the thyroid,
which is just in front of the "Adam's
apple," the pitituary gland, which is
in the skull, certain of the intestinal
glands and the ser glands. Upon the
proper action of these glands with
their so-called internal secretions de
pend a proper balance of growth and
development. These glands are very
delicate in structure and especially
in growing organisms. High tem
peratures, diarrhoea, infections and
improper rest materially interfere
with their blood supply and growth
when even temporary drainage is
made upon them we often have disas
trous results following. This does
not take into account the too fresuent
admage to heart muscle, ears, eyes
and kidneys which follows in the
wake of such so-called harmless dis
ease as measles, mumps and whoop
ing cough.
While it is true that we do not
know how to keep every child abso
lutely free from all the suffering and
damage which acute infections often
leave, every one can follow out cer
tain general rules among them: First,
protect children from infections, by
keeping them away from sick folks—
no matter if it be a "simple cold."
Second, build boxes for the creeping
and toddling youngsters, thereby
protecting them from the cold
draughts of air on the floors, which
are directly responsible for so much
pneumonia.
r,
Third, teach children,
early, the use of tooth brushes, since
it is definitely proven that many gen
eral infections are primarily mouth
infections. Fourth, and necessarily
as important as three, clean hands
before eating. That peck of dirt yarn
is not a requirement, but a. result of
carelessness and ignorance. Fifth,
teach children the importance of
avoiding intimate contact with other
sick children, for what appears to be
a harmless matter with one child may
be the death of another. Keep the
children welt, for upon them the bur
dens of the future will fall. The
Lord does not call as many children
as we send to Him by rarelessness
and ignorance.

Whole Family Benefited
By Wonderful Remedy
There arc many little things to
annoy us, under
present
of life. The hurry, hard work,
noise and strain all tell on us and
tend to provoke nervousness and
irritability..
We
are frequently so
worn out we can neither eat, sleep
nor work with any comfort. We
are out of line with ourselves and
others as well.
A good thing to do under such
circumstances is to take something
like
Dr. Miles' Anti-Pain Pills
to relieve the strain on the nerves.
Mrs.
J.
B. Hartsfield, 82 Plum St.,
Atlanta Ga., writes:
•i have on several occasions beea
vastly relieved by the use of your med
icines, especially the Anti-Pain Pills,
which I keep constantly on hand for
the use of myself, husband and two
sons. Nothing in the world equals them
as a headache' remedy. Often I am
enabled by the use of one or two of
the Pills to continue my housework
when otherwise would be In bed. My
husband Joins me in my praise of the
Anti-Pain Pills and Nftrvlne."
Dr. Miles' Anti-Pain Pills
are relied upon to relieve pain,
nervousness and irritability in thou
sands of households. ^''Of prove*
