ADMINISTERING MEDICINE. How to Make Children Realize That They Must Swallow It. Giving medicine to children is one of the most difficult problems that young mothers have to cope with, for some little ones have such a horror of a dose that they work themselves into a condition of nervous illness before the medicine gets into their stomachs, and so it frequently nauseates them, thus making successive doses harder to give. There is no question but that if a child shows a disposition to rebel against swallowing medicine the men tal tussle must be gone through with and settled first. That is, there is no use in trying to give the dose while administering admonitions. The lit tle one's stomach must be quiet, and this cannot be if he is in tears or is screaming. So when the child refuses it is es sential to put the medicine aside and to make him understand that the cure must be takeu. He must not for au instant be permitted to think that he has gained his point and need not take it. To the contrary, he is given to understand that lie is obliged to and that the sooner he is quiet the better. Precisely how this is to be accomplish ed depends upon individual tempera ment and the way each parent handles the babe. Sometimes when the argu ment Is prolonged a spanking may be required. One small girl had three doses of this maternal discipline be fore she became quiet and swallowed her medicine. There was never any trouble with her afterward, for she had been made to accept the fact that medicine when it was brought her was to be taken and to fuss only made the condition worse. Coaxing works with some little ones; with others pun ishment is required. Each parent must decide this for herself. During the time that this matter of will contest is in progress tlke nwt- ) cine is not administered. When the child has been conquered he must be given a few minutes to quiet sobs or temper, and then the dose must be given. If the sick child thinks' he cannot swallow medicine, no matter how much he may want to, he must be broken of this idea. He is apt to change his idea rather quickly, too, if he finds that each time he ejects the medicine a fresh dose is given. It takes a clever child only a few moments to realize that he is simply prolonging the agony. The notion some have that they can not swallow pills is likely to be im agination, which it is not always well to give in to. If there is a reason for paying heed to it an easy way of ob viating it is to give liquid instead, for there are few prescriptions that cannot be administered in this form. The old way of giving pills In jelly does not commend Itself to present ideas. The sweet, combined with medicine, is apt to upset the stomach, causing nausea. To deceive a child about medicine and tell him it is good is a great mis take. This may work once, but he will be suspicious ever after. He should be made to understand that medicine is not a joke, but that it is less disagreeable than to be ill, and that whether he wishes it or not he must take it. Canada's New Labor Bill. A bill has been introduced in the Ca nadian parliament providing for an eight hour workday and also calling for a mimimum rate of 25 cents an hour. The act does not apply to do mestic or farm laborers or when per sons employed are members of the em ployer's family. A provision annuls any agreement for a lower rate be tween the employee and employer. The act is attracting unusual attention throughout the Dominion.
