HAT INFANTS are peculiarly susceptible to opium and its various 1 preparations, all of which axe narcotic, is well known. Even m the M smallest doaee, if continued, these opiatee cause changes in the func tions and growth of the cells which are likely to become permanent, causing imbecility, mental perversion, & craving for alcohol or narcotics in later life. Nervous diseases, such as intractablo nervous dyspepsia and lack of staying powers are a result of dosing with opiates or narcotics to keep children quiet in their infancy. Tho rulo among physicians is that children should never receive opiates in the smallest doses for more than a day at a time, and only then if unavoidable. I Tho administration of Anodynes, Drops, Cordials, Soothing Syrups and other narcotics to children by any but a physician cannot be too strongly decried, and the druggist should not be a party to it. Children who are ill I need the attention of a physician, aud it i3 nothing less than a crime to dose them willfully with narcotics.
