STRICKEN BABIES CURED ON SNOW-DEEP ROOFS REMARKABLE TREATMENT IN THE OPEN AIR OF WINTER FOR PNEUMONIA — A SIGHT TO MAKE THE OLD MEDICAL SCHOOL GASP AT THE PRES BYTERIAN HOSPITAL IN NEW YORK. NEW YORK, Feb. 21. — A new and remarkable system of treating pneumonia is in daily use at the Presbyterian hospital in this rity. It is a sight to make an adher ent of the old school of medicine fasp to witness a bevy of pneu monia-racked children, some of them mere babies, lying in beds on the roof of the hospital, their little fever-blistered faces exposed to zero breezes, and other convales cent children playing in snow banks with the nurses. Physicians of the hospital de cided recently to test a theory that a fever patient with a dry skin does not catch cold when cold ai r strikes the oval of the cheek. They concluded that diseased lungs and fever would respond to nature's treatment more quickly than to any medical science. The rules they adopted Include these: The patient's feet must be kept •warm, hot water bottles being used when necessary. The body must be well wrapped in blankets. The head may be entirely exposed, but must be turned so that a breeze will strike the side of the face. Cool, fresh water, in small quanti ties may be frequently administer ed to the patient. There must be frequent c<fid baths. Easily di gested fluid food may be given. When this novel roof cure was visited there were a dozen babies under treatment. The nurses said that all would recover. Of scores of cases treated only one child has died, and he was hopeless when he reached the hospital. "We have concluded." said Su perintendent Fisher, "that the best way to kill a baby suffering from pneumonia is to place it in a smothering crib, seal the windows and doors, allow people to live in the sick room, permit dampness to gather from cook stoves or radia tors, use thick, hot poultices and, as a finishing touch, give cold tar antipyretics. That will most cer tainly produce death. "A boy came to the hospital de lirious from pneumonia on the left We are not in competition with cheap and infer ior beers.'

There were 163 minor criminals ar rested in January this year. Of these 117 were convicted of bur glary, larceny, robbery, criminal as sault or murder. Tho character of the average boy criminal and the nature of his crimes are Illustrated by the cases of Jos. Hase, Lawrence Roscow and Peter Brady, three Ihjvs under age. They broke into a hardware store as the result of a plot caused by reading an account of the pardon of a banker who had been sent to the state's prison. They discussed the banker's crime and Brady said: "I am tired of working for 75 cents a day. Let's break into Jof fee's store and get some guns. Then we can hold up a few guys and get some of this easy money." The boys burglarized the hard ware store mentioned, stole several hundred revolvers and knives and turned hold-up men. They robbed three pedestrians in a poverty stricken neighborhood and got less than $1 from their vic tims. Angered by their non-success, they beat the last victim with their pistols.
