THE HEATED TERM.
What to do in Case of Satistroko
The report of the Sanitary Committee
of the New York Board of Health upou
sunstroke as approved and published by
the board was as follows:
Sunstroke is caused by excessive heat
and especially if the weather is muggy.
It is more apt to occur on the second,
third or fourth day of a heated term than
on the first. Loss of sleep, excitement,
close sleeping rooms, debility, abuse of
stimulants predispose to it. It is more
apt to attack those working in the sun,
and especially between the hours of 11
o'clock in the morning and 4 in the after
noon. On hot days wear thin clothing.
Have as cool sleeping rooms as )ossible.
Avoid less of sleep and all unnecessary
fatigue. If working indoors and where
there is artificial heat—laundries, etc.—
see that the room is well ventilated. If
a feeling of fatigue, dizziness, headache,
or exhaustion occurs, cease work imme
diately, lie down in a shady cool place,
apply cold cloths to and pour cold water
over your head and neck. If any one is
overcome with the heat send immediately
for the nearest good physician. While
waiting for the physician, give the per
son cool drinks of water or cold black tea,
or cold coffee, if able to swallow. If the
skin is hot and dry, sponge with or pour
cold water over the body and limbs,
and apply to the head pounded ice
wrapped in a towel or other cloth. If
there is no ice at hand, keep a cold cloth
pn the head and pour cold water on it as
on the body. If the person is pale, very
faint and pulse feeble, let him inhale
ammonia for a few seconds or give him a
teaspoonful of aromatic spirits of ammonia
in two tablespoonfuls of water with a little
The New York Board of Health again
issue their rules for the care of young chil
dren. They are as follows:
If an infant is thirsty, give it pure water
or barley water no sugar. On the hot
test days a few drops of whiskey may be
added to either water or food the whis
key not to' exceed a teaspoonful in twenty
four hours. In relation to the feeding of
infants, boil a teaspoonful of powdered
barley (ground in coffee grinder) and
one-half pint of water, with ft little salt,
for fifteen minutes, strain, then mix it
with half as much boiled milk, and a
lump of sugar, size of a walnut, and give
it lukewarm from a nursing bottle keep
bott)e and mouthpiece in a bowl of water
when not in use, to which a little soda
may be added. For infants five or six
months old give half boiled milk with
salt and a lump of sugar. For infants
older give more milk than barley wa
Summer complaints come from over-:
feeding and not foul air, Keep doors and
windows open. Wasli your well children
with pool water twice a day, or oftener
in the hot season. Never neglect loose
