TUBERCULOSIS IN CHILDREN
Appalling Mortality Among the Little Ones Dae
to This Cafctso Proper Attention to JHealth of
Mothers Would Savo Many Isives

Tbe number of deaths duo to tubeT
< culosls Is tremendous When the word
Is spoken one Instinctively thinks of
pulmonary consumption This Is the
form which attacks adults and which
we Tseo dally gathering In Its victims
There are other forms however moro
conimon In children that levy trib
ute upon them without calling atten
tion to tho relationship between these
diseases an consumption of tho
lungs
Dr Jacobl Is authority for tho state
Trent that Tuberculosis kills as many
people old and young as diphtheria
croup whooping cough scarlatlnn
measles and typhoid fever taken to
gether In all of our cities active
steps have been taken to protect the
leople from tho above named dls
eases Until quite recently however
a few years at most nothing was done
to Teduce the mortality from tuber
culoSls
Now however the attention of the
world the common people and the
health authorities has been called to
Its curability and preyentablllty
The causes the modes of scatter
ing and the prevention are all being
studied and an educational campaign
1b on to wipe out this white terror
The children suffer from tubercu
losis of the bones the bowels and
lymph glands Tubercular meningitis
Is frequently found In early life and Is
uniformly fatal Only by careful at
tention to tho food and dally habits
can the rising generation be made Im
mune from theso varied forms of tu
tuberculosis
The fact that over one half of all
babies born die before they reach the
ago of five years proves that tho con
stitutional capital bequeathed them
la small Is tho proper attention paid
tot e diet exercise and outofdoor
tt1fto of tho mother If this wore done
the child would undoubtedly havo
greater vitality and could by proper
care and education live above the tu
berculosis of childhood and of adult
life
Cause and Cure of Gastric Catarrh
Chronic congestion of tho stomach
known as gastric patarrh is usually
caused by one of tho following errors
or by alt of them put together Eat
ing too much or too fast swallowing
food insufficiently masticated the
use of such coarse foods as cabbage
greens etc mustard peppersauce
ginger and other condiments and
spices pastry containing animal fats
free
and
grlddlb
are tho things that produce gastric
catarrh
Tho firsthand mo3t necessary step
in the treatment of this disease Is to
remove the cause of the trouble Wo
may induce activity of the Bkln hy
hot applications followed by cold or
hot bath followed by a short applica
tion of cold fomentations followed
by a short cold application to the
stomach These treatments are use
ful but the most Important factor la
tho regulation of the diet A fruit
diet is nest for the reason that In gas
tric catarrh there is a great accumula
tion ofgerms which are destroyed by
fruit Juice A wellprepared diet of
toasted bread zwieback granose blsi
cult etc is also useful in these
xases
Bedroom Climate
A person at the age of sixty years
has spent about twenty years of bis
life In bis bedroom Have you inves
tigated tho average sleeping room cll <
mate If you were sent as a mission
ary to some distant pestllentldl spot
theclimate of which Was as unhealth
ful as tint of the average bedroom
would you not feel that you were risk
ing a great deal for the sake ot tho
heathen
Pn the tombstone Of tens of thou
sands of hose Who have died from
tuberculosis might appropriately he
Inscribed Disease and death were
Invited and encouraged by1 a death
dealing bedroom climate
To show that this Is no exaggera
tion it Is only necessary to call at
tention to the fact that fully haf of
the tubercular patients placed In out
door consumptive hospitals make a
satisfactory recovery If fresh air
will cure the disease It is certainly a
wonderful preventive of It It is not
more reasonable to deliberately
breathe impure air than it Ib to drink
impure water or to eat unhealthful
food or wear infected clothing
TenderHearted Savages
One ofithe most anomalod features
of cur Christian civilization is the
slaughter house especially the abat
toirs of our great cities where veri
table torrents of blood perpetually
flow the ebbing life ot millions of In
