Children are much more likely to he made nervous than to be born ner vous. There U no better equipment for the little one who must win hi:-, way In the world than perfect health. A eonitenlaJ atmosphere in which to unfold his own paiticular kind of bloom is what the child's awakening nature craves. To be 'successful in exacting obe dience, there must be no threats, nor must anything be offered the child in tho way of a bribe. The mother who holds high the i standards of the home Is she whose example and Influence shape the ten I dec minds of her little ones fur good . or evil. I One of the first rlu'ie, to her child Is to spare no effort in her endeavors to provide him with a physique fitted to be the support and companion of his nitnd. One of the secrets of paining prompt Ml H. obedience from children is to make If few matters points ' of contention. To ; overlook Is what the most success ful mother knows how to do. ! The child feels his own position keenly when h loses self-control. To aggravate his misery by blows or com mands, when he Is not in a physical condition to understand them, seldom brings good results. The green shoots appearing above the brown earth of nursery tea and gingham pinafores, are very tender, and, as they grow, the mother must smile on them, for If she turns away they will niost surely lean out toward sun and perhaps never bloom lu the home tardeu at all. Forestry in Japan, ; Japan has longer than any other country practiced technical forestry. With extraordinary skill and absolute success the authorities have for 1.200 years planted and cartd for the forest trees.

Thus, in Fifth avenue, between Seventh and Eighth streets, a plate exposed on a windy day befora the street was cleaned gave 320 separate colonies of bacteria. These were not necessarily of a harmful nature. After the street had been cleaned, another exposure of a bacteria-culture plate at the same spot revealed only 120 colonies. ADDS TO HEARErtS 3Y ADS.

Military Authorities Decide That Amer ican Troops Can Be Immune and Seek Volunteers for Treatment. Washington. Immunization against typhoid In army camps by vaccination is to be undertaken by the military authorities. The whole matter Is to be frankly put before the army, and Individuals are to be Invited to volunteer for vac cination. No soldier or officer will be ctavipcllod to submit to anfi-typhoid vaccination against his will, but an effort will be made by lectures and ex amples to show tlie soldier the advan tage of availing himself of such a sim ple and easy way of escaping one of the worst and most dreaded of army camp diseases. These measures are to be taken us a result of the recom mendations of the board of eminent physicians appointor to consider measures for preventing typhoid fever In army camps. It ij named at the Instance nf Prig. Gen. Robert M. O'Reilly, then surgeon general of the army, and included in its membership were Prs Victor C. Vaughan of Ann Arbor, Wfiiiam T. Councilman of Bos ton, John' If. "Musser of Philadelphia, Alex ander Lambert of New York, Simon Fh xnr of New York, and Wil liam S. Thayer of Baltimore. A summary of the board's onelusions were made public recently. This points out the well-known fact that both during the civil and the Spanish American wars typhoid fever prevailed to r. great e-;ont amr ::t the troops, espi'ially ; tor rg tlie your! 'ter men in reeir-.' .it.' fifiily recni'ert. Old sol fliers were not often affected, and us regiments learned how to take care of themselves tlie disease tended to di minish.

It ha'.- long been recognized, says the report, that a person who has one." had the tvpboid Is practically In sured against a second attack and the m- dioal prof, s.-loil has now found In anfi-typhoid varclnaiion a simple ami hriniless way or artificially inducing almost this same amount of protec tion.
