NO. 6 WEANING AND TEETHING.
1 My baby Is a year old. Dare I
wean him in summer?
. Yes, unless he is In very delicate
condition and your physician advises
against it. As a rule mother's milk Is
not sufficiently nourishing for a baby
12 months old or more. Wean him
gradually, not suddenly. At first, sub
stitute one bottle feeding, about mid
day, for a breast feeding. Give whole
milk, 8 ounces or 16 tablespoons;
barley water, 2 ounces or 4 table
spoons. If possible, persuade the baby
to. drink this from a spoon or cup. It
Is time he learned to drink. It he re
fuses, then resort to the bottle. At the
end of three or four days, if he seems
well, give two bottle or cup feeding3
instead of one. At the end of a month
or six weeks he will te weaned. It Is
a mistake to withdraw the breast
abruptly and give nothing but modi
fled milk. This should be done only
in case of emergency, dangerous Ill
ness of the mother, etc.
2 My milk does not seem to satisfy
my sis months baby. He wants to
nurse constantly and cries a great
deal. Should he be weaned?
Not abruptly and not without con
sulting your doctor as to your own
condition. Your baby is hungry or
spoiled. If you are anaemic or poorly
nourished, your milk does not satisfy
his hunger, and your strength should
be built up. If your milk is rich, he
has been spoiled by Irregular feeding
and knows that by crying he will be
fed at any time. Have the breast milk
analyzed. If the baby needs more
nourishment, build up your own health,
and gradually feed him modified milk
from a bottle, spoon or cup, prefer
ably the latter.
3. Does weaning increase the dan
ger of teething?
Not when the baby is teething nor
mally and his digestion is generally
good. Teething is a normal process.
Illness during teething comes generally
from digestive disorders, not from the
pain of detention. Wean the baby
gradually, using Judgment in selecting
the formula, feed regularly, watch the
bowels carefully and if the baby seems
normal, there is no danger.
4 When should a baby be weaned?
Progressive physicians and baby
specialists no longer set a definite
montn lor weaning, in Tact, when a
baby is healthy, the process is auto
matic, starting within a few months
after birth. A bottle feeding is given
once a day, in place of the usual breast
feeding, at three months or even earl
ier. This Is Increased to two feed
ings a day at six months. Soon after
this, the baby is trained to drink modi
fied milk from a spoon or cup and at
12 months It Is ready to give up the
breast entirely. This plan is approved
because It prepares the baby for any
emergency such as maternal Illness,
death or separation, and It gives the
mother more liberty. Most important.
it accustoms the baby's stomach grad
ually, almost Imperceptibly to cow's
milk. Sudden changes In diet are
fi When should the bottle-fed baby
If he is in good condition, that Is
up to the proper standard of weight
and general health, at nine months he
may be fed some foods, lke gruel, or
his modified milk, and even beef broth
from a cup along with half a bottle,
At a year, such a feeding Is substituted
for the usual bottle feeding. At 15
months he has three bottle feedings
and two cup feedings. At 16 or 17
months, he has three meals a day. and
a bottle at 9 or 10. At 18 or 20 months
no bottle is given at night The wean
ing is accomplished.
6 When should a baby begin teeth
ing? Babies begin teething at different
times. Sometimes delayed teething is
a family trait More often It is due
to ill-health, malnutrition, rickets or
other constitutional diseases. The
breast-fed child teeths earlier and
more easily than a bottle-fed baby,
and usually exhibits its two lower mid
dle teeth at six months. If no teeth
have appeared at nine months, a doc
tor should be consulted. An averaga
table of dentition Is this:
Twelve mos., 6 teeth; 18 not., 12
teeth; 24 mos., 16 teeth; 30 mos., 20
teeth, the complete first set or milk
7 Does hard teething cause convul
sions? Not unless teething is accompanied
by disordered digestion. The pain
from teething is not sufficient to cause
convulsions, but pain, a slight tem
perature, and indigestion together will
bring on convulsions.
8 When should the gums be lanced?
On the advice of your physician only.
If the gums are swollen and discol
ored, and there is fever with vomiting
and perhaps slight diarrhoea, send for
your doctor at once. This may mean
the approach of the dreaded summer
complaint, which In combination with
teething is so generally fatal.

Dear Mrs. Thompson: (1) Will you
please tell me bow to make turtle
soup? Which turtles are usqd, soft
or hard shell?
(2) Please give me your recipe for
(1) Usually soft-shlll turtles are
used, as the meat is easier to get out,
but a hard-shelled turtle can be used
Just as well.
After the head is cut off plunge the
body into boiling water to loosen the
shell. The bottom shell comes off
comparatively easy. Dig out the meat
at '. discard entrails. Just as if you
were cleaning a chicken. - Use only
the good, clean meaty parts and cut
these into small pieces not larger than
dice. To two pounds of turtle meat
u. e four carrots, three onions, a little
thyme and parsley, pepper and salt to
taste and four quarts cold water. Slice
the onions and two of the carrots and
fry brown In drippings. Tie the thymef
an! parsley In a little cloth bag. to be
dropped into the soup. Put turtle,
fried vegetables and bag of thyme and
parsley Into the cold water, grate the
other two carrots Into -water and boi!
slowly four hours. Then strain and
Benson, boll 15 minutes longer and
(2) Nut bread Four cups flour,
four teaspoonfuls baking powder, one
half teaspoonful salt, one-half sup su
gar two cups milk, one egg, one cup
walnuts (raisins, too, It desired). Sift
flour, baking powder, salt and sugar
together, then add nuts (and raisins it
used). Beat egg in milk and add. spr
ing with knife. Put in greased pan, let
stand 20 minutes, then bake one hour
in slow oven.
Dear Mrs. Thompson: We are two
girls of 19 and 14 years of age.
(1) Is there too much difference in
our ages for us to chum together?
(2) What would be nice to take to
a picnic luncheon?
(3) What kind of dresses would be
suitable to wear?
(4) Is a girl of 14 too young to go
on a picnic with a boy of 18?
19 AND 14.
(1) You may have very congenial
tastes, so why not chum together, no
matter what your ages be?
(2) Sandwiches, of course make
some of white, some of brown and
some of white wheat bread, with dif
ferent cold meats and vegetable mix
tures. Sandwiches of chopped raisins
and nuts mixed with mayonnaise are
nice, or chopped olives and celery be
tween lettuce leaves, or chopped egg
and cucumber between lettuce leaves.
Deviled eggs are nice for picnics, pic
kles, fresh fruits or vegetables (such
as tomatoes or radishes) filled cook
ies, lemonade syrup, small spice cakes
and nut cakes, or candy.
(3) Wash dresses simply' made.
(4) No. But she should not wan

but keep where the other folks are.
Dear Mrs. Thompson: (1) I have
several large blackheads in my face.
They have been there a long time.
How can I get rid of them?
(2) What would be pretty colors for
a high BCbool class something that is
not o much used.
(1) Massage the face with cold
cream every night and wipe off sur
plus cream with a clean cloth. Next
morning wash the face with fairly hot
water and a mild soap, then rinse with
cold water. If the black-heads appear
soft enough, prick with a needle (steri
lized in boiling water), and gently
press out the black-head. Don't bruise
the skin, and if the black-head Is not
soft enough, wait a day or two, repeat
ing the cold cream and hot water treat
ment. After squeezing out the black
head, anoint the spot with peroxide or
alcohol. Keep up the cold cream mas.
sage every night to clear the skin of
all dirt, and always wash the face In
the morning with warm water ml
mild soap, and rinse well sftenrtri
with cold water. Your skin will m
become so healthy that you will Im

Bed Time Tales
By Clara Ingram Judson.
NCE upon a time, a dew drop
fairy came down from the sky
The lazy moon had gone to sleep
and the garden where the dew drop
fairy lighted, was so dark, that the
fairy couldn't tell where shewas.
But when the stars began to fade
and the eastern ky grew rosy pink,
the fairy looked around and saw-that
she and dozens of other dew drop
fairies were on a bed of nasturtiums
in a big old fashioned garden,
i Now, maybe you never saw a dew
'drop fairy? ' . .
I You have to get up bright and
'early in the morning to see them
for later the sun dries the dew. and
the fairies vanish into the air.
But early in the morning, .when.
!xhe sun's rays slant across the gar
den and the dew drops glisten on
thf leaves and flowers, if you watch
icarefully you can see glistenly fairies
with rainbow tinted wings, novenng
above each drop of dew.
Where they came from nobody
knows and whither they go when
the sun chases away the dew, is one

from leaf to flower.
"But how can we jump over n.

was a sister dew drop fairy dancing
;in the sunlight. ... . .
I "Good morning," said the leaf
fairy pleasantly. .
i "And good morning to you, an
swered the blossom fairy, can't we
play a game before the sun gets too
high?" . , , .
I EYe9. let's," cried the leaf fairy,
"but what shall we play?" .
I "Well, let me think,"', mused the
blossom fairy, "we might make a
rope of these fine pale sunbeams and
jump the rope."
' The very thing," shouted the other,
"here IU help you." ,
i So together they . waved their
wings and caught some of the first
venturesome sunbeams, wove them
