Toronto, Feb.   16.���The  Telegram's
London cable says:   "A deputation of
Welshmen waited on Mr. Chamberlain
today to ask that the government provide transport for the purpose  of  removing to Canada a  number  of  their
countrymen   and   their families  who
had migrated to Patagonia and desired
a chango of settlement.     Chamberlain
explained that when the  reception  of
tne deputation was first mentioned, he
understood   the   Welsh   in   Patagonia
wished to emigrate to   South   Africa.
Had this   been thu case,   arrangement
couid   easily   havo   been made but he
was helpless tu render them assistance
to emigrate to Canada.   He suggested
that  tha   deputation   should call   on
Lord Salisbury, or that a subscription
be started in the  United Kingdom  to
raise   the necessaiy   funds of ��10,000,
or  that   the     Canadian    government
might increase its liberal   offer of  ��1
per head.   Thc deputation was greatly
disappointed.     Lord  Strathcona  was
not represented.     It  ia reported  that
the Elder Dempster Co.   will   offer  a
steamship   to   transport    the    Welsh
settlers to Canada.

neaily 2,000,000 words und containing
evidence aud statistics gathered   from
each eity along the Pacifio coast  from
Vanconver   to   Han   Francisco.     The
commission has divided the report into
two parts,   one dealing with Japanese
and the other with Chinese so that the

Blinded and With Head Shattered Si
Egan Feels His Way to Help.
YeBterday morning an accident
occurred near Beasley Siding which
although but one man was affected,
and he was not killed, taught a terrible lesson of the dangers to which a
miner or prospector working by himself is subjected.
Micbael Egan,   a well known prospector of the eity,   has   been steadily
working on the  Queen Victoria claim
on the mountain adjoining the siding.
He is the owner of the   claim,   whioh
be has great faith in,   and   has stayed
steadily with it thiough   the  winter,
working alone.      Yesterday   morning
about  9  o'clock he went out to Ure a
blast whieh had teen nearly ready the
night before. Through some imperfection   in   the   piece   of fuse the   blast
went off almost Instantly,   tearing off
a   forefinger   and thumb of bis   light
hand, Beverely injuring   his   left  eye
and rendering him perfectly blind  in
tbe  other,   although  tbe right eye is
not supposed to be badly injured.
When he recoverd Irom the  unconsciousness caused by the shock he painfully and slowly   made his way down
tbe mountain,teoling his way over tbe
snow covered boulders with tho  uninjured hand.     He finally   reached  the
bottom and by goad fortune   stumbled
on the metals  of   tbe   railway.     He
shouted   for help and attracted the attention of a rancher who lived  on the
opposite side of the river, an 1 who as
he   saw   that   something was   wrong
took a boat and rowed   across   to  the
rescue.    He led tbe unfortunate miner
to Beasloy   siding,    and   flagged   thu
morning train which came along soon
after.
Egan was brought to the city in the
train and thence to tho hospital,
where hiB injuries were attended to
by Dr. Rose. Owing to the terrible
shock he had sustained it was not
possible to amputate the injured part
until he has got over the first effectB
ot his gruesome journey down the
mountain side. It is not known yet
whether or not he will lose the left
eye. Mr. Egan is ono of the early
prcspectors of this part of Kootenay
and iu'.s made Nelson a home since the
city was started. ~
Seattle,   Feb. 18.���The great Tread-
well   mines   on Douglas island   were
assailed by Are on Tuesday, February
11th, and   large   loss of life was prevented   by   tbe   almost    superhuman
attempts   of   everybody     who    could
reach the scene to stay the progress of
the flames. Tbe steamer Dirigo reaching purt today brought particulars   of
the fire.    The Alaskan-American compressor building was entirely destroyed.     Th'rty-eight     thousand   dollars
worth of stamps aud mill   plates  and
the 120-stamp mill were saved.     More
than one hundred miners were   in the
lower works and in imminent  danger
of death.   The  firemen confined their
efforts  to the   mill   adjacent   to   the
compressor building  and though their
clothing frequently eanght   fire,   they
finally got the fire under control after
several buildings had been destroyed.
REPAIRS AT BONNINGTON.
Rocks of Four Tons Uot Into the Race
Way.
Lome A. Campbell, manager of the
West Kootenay Power and Light company states that the shutdown at I
Bonnington Falls was essential to the
cleaning out of tho forebay and the
making of ether repairs under water.
A new tail race is being constructed
below the plant, and the old race is
being enlarged. Tho entire work will
involve the removal of about 1,000
yards of rock, and will improvo the
conditions at the works.
When  the plant was shut down last
week   and   the   work   of cleaning the
channel   and   forebay   commenced   it
was found that the heavy current  nad
piled   up   rooks   in the channel in  a
manner   that   was certainly unexpected.     At   the   point where the  power
houso   is   located the Kootenay   river
approaches  the falls  at   Bonnington
and tho decline is  so   steep   that  the
current attains   a speed of 30 miles in
the spring. Under these circumstances
it is not surprising  that  heavy rocks,
some   weighing   foul tons, are  rolled
down   stream.     It   was  these heavy
rocks   that   hindered  tbe company in
making   its   repairs and delayed  the
turning   on   of tbe power during  the
day timo for 48 hours.
New York, Feb. 18.���The American
Newspaper Publishers' association
held the first session of its sixth annual meeting at the Waldorf-Astoria
today. About 160 publishers representing newspapers from ooast to
coast were present. The day's business was entirely confined to a discussion of topics relative to the advertising departments of newspapers. S.
H. Kauffman, the president of the
association, presided. Tne meeting
adopted this resolution whioh emanated trom the board of directors:
Resolved, that the American Newspaper Publishers' association endorses
the action of the Postmaster-General
of the United States in his efforts to
confine second class privileges to publishers legitimately entitled to Buch
privileges.
The five years extension of agreement between tbe publishers and the
International Typographical union
and the International Piinting Pressmen's union, was brought up by the
committee on arbitration. James M.
Lynch, the president of the Typographical union, was present and advocated its continuance. After some
discussion tne question was left standing to be settled before tbe meeting
finally adjourned.

Washington, Feb. 18.���Taft, governor of the Philippines, today, in a
discussion of tho question of tranquility in the arcnipelago before the Senate
committoe on tho Philippines, said
that the recent massacre of troops in
Samar had a startling effect upon the
army and created suspicion and fear
of treachery in other sections. The
governor did not think, however, that
such apprehension was justified. He
said that while Manila is quiet and
has practically been so ever since the
American occupation, it is still used
as a center of agencies for the piomo-
tion of insurrection. Nothing had, he
said, been done for the enactmont of
laws until the establishment of the
civil government.
It   then   became   evident   tbat   the
Philippine   junta   was   prepari ng  to
locate in that city, making tbat point
the centre for their propaganda.    General Wright was thereforo direoted   to
prepare a law on this subject  and had
done  so.     The denunciation of secret
societies  had   been   inserted he said,
because  tbey had been made the chief
instrument  of   agitation   against  the
United States.     If   the people understood the question there   would be  no
objection to peaceable   agitation,   'ut
under the ciroumstances,   the commission   had   felt that the  suspension of
the   right   to  advocate  independence
was not such   a   deprivation   of   the
right of free speech as   could   not  be
justified by the presence of war, when
tar the benefit of the   whole   people it
should be suppressed.    At least ono of
the societies had for one  of   its  main
purposes, assassination,
"In other words it was a war measure?" suggested Senetor Bevendge,
and Governor Taft assented.
Replying to a question from Senator Patterson as to whether it was
the intention to go further in this
direction,Governor Taft replied: "We
pioposo to do all tbat we can do that
Is known to civilized nations to put
down this war, which is such a great
injury to the FhilippineJ|people,"
Speaking of Agninaldo's having
General Luna assassinated, Governor
Taft said that, "under the common
law there is scarcely an insurrection
general who could not be punished for
assisting in securing tho murder of
other Filipinos. It is the way thoy
have of getting rid of men wbo do not
agree with tbem."
Governor Taft said he had never
seen Aguinaldo and he bad never considered it his duty to investigate
Luna's ileati,.

Vancouver, Feb. IS.���A special from
Ottawa today says: The explanation
of the Federal government regarding
tho granting of the so-oalled Trend
gold concession, covering lapsed or
vacant placer claims in the Klondike,
places a new nspo.ton tlie arrangement
wbich has caused so much consternation in Dawson.
The statement is officially made today that the trouble arises from tbe
granting by the government of certain
concessions for the diverting of water
from the Klondike river to be used for
miniug purposes. In consideration of
this concession the compauy agrees to
furnish water to miners at a certain
scale approved by the government
otlieials in the Yukon.
It is a well known fact  that   many
claims have not been   worked   during
the past yoars on account of the scarcity of water.    For   that  reasan   there
I are   hundreds   of   claims which   have
either uot been taken up and prospected,or have been abandoned alter prospecting, as they could not   be   worked
without   plenty   of   water.   Tho conditions   of the concassion are that tho
company must spend ut least   8250,000
in     the   development   of   tho   water
system before it has tbe right to   tako
over any abandoned claims.   Then, if
any   owners   wish   to  operate   these
abandoned claims,   they   may   do  so,
buving water from the  company at  a
rato fixed.   Tho order,   wbich has not
yet beon gazetted,  is said not to inter-
iere with the rights of any one.
Hon. W. R. Soott,secretary of state,
in the absence of Hon. Clifford Sifton,
minister  of the interior,   said   today:
A clause has been inserted   protecting
thc miners,insofar as tbey can demand
and   secure     water     raised     by   the
hydraulio process,and thus work their
own lands. The project.it is assumed,
was in the   interest   of  that   country
and   there   was   nc   suggestion   of  a
monopoly.     Another   object is to utilize sections of mining   landB   not accessible at present on account  of their
situation above water level.    At present the great volume   of   water   flows
off in the spring freshets,and   it is the
intention to reserve a part of this   for
distribution    during   the    remaining
months  of   the   year   in districts not
reached   by   it now.    Several   parties
have   made   similar   proposals  to tne
government during the last few years.
Tho agreement   will   naturally   cauFe
excitement  at   thc present time but it
will prove, I think, to be in tbe interests   of   thc   distriot.     There   is   no
monopoly.
The compaay must provide the
miners with water and lands will be
worked which are now valueless. The
whole matter will likely be discuated
in parliament.

THE CAUSE OF THE SHORTAGE.
An endeavor has been made to make
capital tor the Canadian Pacific railway in its crusade against the Crow's
Nest Pass Coal company out of state
ments made that the smelter at
Greenwood experienced a temporary
shortage of cuke,and it is probably true
thnt shipments were foi a tiiuecurtailod
to that plant, lt was not due, however
to any inability on the part of the
coal company to fnrnish tho coke, or
because preference was given to
American customers, but rather to the
delay on the par!1 of the British
Columbia Copper Co., limited, whicb
cwns the smelter at Greenwood, to
make satislactory financial arrange
ments with tbe Crow's Nest Pass Co"al
Co. The ooal company has reduced the
price of coko at its ovens at Fernie to
$4 per ton on condition that satisfac
tory security be given for the payment
of the same. Shipments were curtailed
to the Greenwood plant between January 2li:h and February 10th of the
present year until such arrangements
had been arrived ut by the British
Columbia Copper Co. This suspension,
of course, caused a shortage, but this
shortage was confined to the Greenwood smelter, and on this slight
foundation was reared a superstructure of misrepresentation. The organs
filled tbeir columns with diatribes
against the Crow's Nest Coal company, and the henchmen of tlie C.P.R.
with tears in tlieir eyes went about
lamenting tho destruction of the
smelting industry of the province.
The manufacturing of fake telegrams
was recommenced and tho news was
spread through the length and breadth
of the land that tho coal company was
trying to injure our smelting industry
generally. Through these misrepresentations a popular impressi'ju was
created tbat there was a shortage of
coke, whereas, as a matter of tact
since the fiist ofthe year the coke
banks at Fernie have been almost impassable on account of the heHvy stock
on hand. Ou January 1st there was a
surplus ot 3,000 tons awaiting shipment and at present there is about the
same quantity at the ovens. This does
not look very much like a shortage, or
as though tho demand fur tho coke from
the American side was greater than
the available supply.
The capacity of tho Fernie ovens is
about 28 cat loads a day and the British Columbia orders, all told for cone,
ut present are only about ten carloads
a day. Besides the ovens at Fernie
there arc 212 at Michel at which coke
is now being turned out. At present
the only coke tbat is being sent to the
United Slates consists uf live carloads
a day which is being shipped to tlie
Northport smelter.
We understand that the Oompany is
prepared to take additional orders for
from 250 to 30U tons uf cone a day for
British Columbia points, ano would
not experience Ihe slightest trouble in
tilling such orders. All of the above
statements are authoritative and may
he relied on as being true in ove-y
particular.
'Ibe Greenwood, the ''rand Forks
und the Nelson boards of trade have
been cozened into passing resulutisjus
related to the fuel supply, and obtained principally through a garbling of
the facts concerning the shortage of
coke at the Greenwood smelter. These
resolutions were in favor of the passage by the Assjeialed Boards of Trade
of a request to the government to do
all that it could tc secure cheap fuel.
The real issue, however, is so that an
allied company of tbe Canadian
Pacific may secure the coal lands on
tho opposite side of Morrissey creek
to where the Crow's Nest Coal company is working. It seems scarcely
reasonable thnt so Influential and intelligent a body as the Associated
Boards of Trade will lend itself to so
selfish a scheme, or will assist in a
plan which is intended to bo detrimental to a company which has done
so much toward tho upbuilding uf the
province a9 tho Crow's Nest Coal
company,
RELYING ON OURSELVES.
The tendency In British Columbia
in the reining, smelting and refining
industries is towards performing as
many of the processes, from the time
the ore is extracted till tho finished
product of metal is turned out, at
home as possible. At the inception of
lode mining here there wero no plants
for the reduction of ores and of necessity they had bo be sent abroad for
reduction. First one smelter was
erected then another and now no
gold-cupper ore is sent away fur treatment and only a small portion of tho
silver-lead ore is smelted abroad.
One of the gold-copper smelters has
gone a atep further and has put in a
cjpper converter at Grand Forks
which in now treating tbe matte lrom
four plants to wit: the Greenwood
Nelson, Van Anda and tbeir own. The
converter plant at presenilis turning
out about !i0 tons of OU percent blister
copper per dny and it is said to be
very probable .that it will treat "the
matte of the Trail and Northprt smelters as )oon ua tbeir contracts, made
witb American establishments some
time since, have expired. The reason
that the smelters send thoir matte to
Grand Foiks is the great saving that
it made in the difference in the
weight of, the crude matte and the
blistered copper whish amounts to
about 50 per cent., on tho long hau 1
cross the continent. Tbls shows how
far the reduction of gold-copper oro
has progresseu in this province.
The reduction of silver-lead ores is
making similar strides. At the beginning of silver lead mining the ore wns
all sent to the United States for treatment. Soon a silver-laad smelter was
erected and now the oombined capacity uf all the smelters is greator than
the ore output, but still for one
reason or another some of the ore finds
it way to tbe south side of the line.
So far all ol the bullion is shipped
to the United States for treatment, but
this will not continue for a great
while. At Taril a lead refinery le
being erectod.and another is promised
at Marysvillle in East Kootenay.
When these plants are io operation
the exporting of bullion pioduccd by
the home plants to the refineries of
the United States will cease.
Thus, in one way and the other the
induct lies connected with reduction
are learning to rely on themselves and
to perform the various processes at
home. The consequence is that more
money remains here to be expended among our workmen and for the
purchase of supplies from Canadian
institutions and this adds materially
to local prosperity and to the upbuilding of the country. The time is not
far distant when it will be a remarkable happening to Bend a shipment of
ore abroad for treatment or bullion
or matte to foreign estblishments to
be refined.
COST OF COKE HAULAGE.
Considerable has been said in the
papers of late concerning tbe price of
coke and the cost of its transportation. The Crow's Nest Pass Coal Co.
had reduced tbe cost of coke to $4 per
ton at Fcrmo. This out leaves the
coal company without a working profit on tho present output. The reduction was made because the management of the coal company felt that it
should do all that it could to sustain
smelting and miuing at a time when
the price of silver, copper and lead
were low, and for this action it is entitled to praise instead of the censure
it is receiving at the hands of that
portion of the preas which is favorable
to the Canadian Pacific railway.
Thoir attacks should really he directed against the transportation company aa a glanoe at tho following
figures will show: The transportation
charges from Fernie to Nelson arc
���2.25 per ion for coke,muking together
with the original cost of $4 per ton, a
tistnl uf $0,25 pei ton for coke delivered in this eity The haul lrom Fernie
to Kussland costs $2.75 per ton, making thu price of coke llieie Jli.75 per
tun. The railway company taxes the
smelter at Grand Forks $3 per tun fur
the eariiage frum Fernie, arid coke,
therefore, costs $7 por ton there. Tho
tax for hauling enke from Fernie to
Greenwood is $8.80 per ton and hence
cuke costs tlio smelter there $7.30 per
ton. The cost nf the hnnlugo seems
excessive, aud if the C.P.R. wished tu
be both just and generous it should
uiako a reduction on these rates and
still leave itself a good margin uf
profit. It could without any great
llsadavntage to itself make a further
cut of 25 per cent, ou the present
charge.

Superintendent Whito, of tho Wilcox, says the Ymir Mirror, reports
that the recent shipment of ore from
the Wilcox resulted in returns of 8172

Where the Big Strike Was Reported,
There are disparaging accounts come
from tho reported new rlaeer dig-
pings of the Horsefly, Caribi.o,aB well
as the eulogostic ones which were sent
out last fall. P. Morrison, a Cape
llrcton man, who has been in the
Klondike for three years, went to the
new gold fields last fall and when he
got back to Vancouver last week gave
an interview to the Colonist representative wliioh is exactly the reverse of
tlio many statements which have gone
abroad.
lie said that he went in last fall and
that in going up he met five men coming out. They told him that Eureka
and Fraser creeks were no-good but
that they were going to say nothing
about it, as they did not want it to be
known that they had been fooled.
Morrison reached Eureka creek in
tlio lirst week of December and there
was only about a foot of snow and no
frost. Ue went over the boles from
which Stirsky and his partners are
said to have taken the $25 a day, bnt
if thoy did that, he thinks that they
took all that there was in them, for he
could find nothing. Ho met tho four
men who were responsible for the
boom and who had said that they got
25 cents lo the pan, hut he found that
it would take about 25 pans to give
cents. The claims could have been
worked for months after these men
had left it, and if they had been making $100 a day they would have gone
back, but they did not. Tho people
nearest to tbe strike were not a bit
excited about it, but all tbe stoppping

PORTLAND CEMENT COMPANY.
T. G. Procter returnod last evening
from Spokane where he attended the
meeting of the Pacific Portland
Cement oompany. He states tbat the
works are making satisfactory pro
gress and that the company expects to
be in a position to commence shipping
tne product in about three months. In
order ta put the company in a
thoroughly safe position to meet what
it expects will be large demands for
tho output and to build a ateamboat
and scows to operate on tbe l'end
O'Reille river, it was decided to increase tbe working capital of tbe company. It was not thought well to
enlarge the capital stock, so the vendors and tbo promotors bare placed
60,000 shams at tbe disposal of the
company to be realised upon if more
money is needed for these purposes.
All the arrangements with regard to
patents have been completed and it
looks as if the compauy would soon be
in a position to command the cement
market of tho west. The supply of
natural material is almost unlimited
and tbe situation of tho works most
favorable for handling It, while the
patents tbat tbe company controls
will enable thc product to be turned
out very cheaply. Tde company, said
Mr. Procter, is more than hopeful of
success and the mombers only wish
that the works were situated on tbis
side of tho border. The Nelson men
associated with the company are S. .
Fowler, Geo. Neelands, Oapt.Dunoan.
W. P. Tierney and T. G. Procter and
these with an able directoarate in
Spokane shows that the interests of
the company are in good hands.

MUST HAVE IT
Properly  Selected   Food   of Great   Importance
Loss of memory is a sure sign that
the body is not taking proper elements
from the food. Then is the time to
feed especially selected foods or the
person may become demented.
A mother writes abont her son and
it is interesting. "My son, Albert,
now 25 years old, and principal of the
 High   School,   graduated  at the
Kansas University and is a post graduate of the Columbia,Mo., University.
When be began teaching, about a
year flgo, he hnd just completed his
education and was bndly broken dovvn
in health. He had only about two
months vacation and spent it at Ex-
celsior Springs,but when he returned,
there wus no improvement
We thought be would get better after
he began his work, but Instead of improving be became more weak and
nervous, and dually, forgetful in the
schoolroom, Hu tried different physicians uud everything he conld hear of
and nt last gave up school and came
hi me,   after   putting n teacher in   his
plaoe,
I cooked every delicacy 1 conld think
of for him but he became very thin
and we wens greatly worried about
him. One day n neighbor sent over
a box of (Irnpe-NiilK. Ho caught sight
ol lhe package and ufler   rending   the
statement of  whut the food was in.
(ended   for,   became   much   interested
und began using it.
He liked It,and ul Ihu end of n week
wns very much strengthened and improved. We were encouraged. He
stuck to (irnpe-Nuts und In live wetks
wns buck in tho school-room. He is
now teaching the second term in the
same place, has recovered entirely und
gained wonderfully iu I]08b, lie now
weighs 106 pounds nnd   Is   au   expert
font bull player,
My daughter, Georgia, eight years
old, wis a weak little girl until after
wo found what effeot Grapn-Nuts hud
on Albert, we put her un the food und
now   she    is   exceptionally   stout and
healthy,    We wish to thank tbo company for the great help  the   food   has
been to us."    This lady lives a Hnlls-

At the record office yesterday certificates of work were issued to
Michael Zattuni on the Ties and Alan-
dale mineral claims. E. Peters transferred a quarter interest in the Ivory-
King,a one-sixth interest in the Wood
Tick and one-twelfth interest in the
Birthday claims to c. D.Christie, consideration nominal.
H. F. Forrust, inspector of governing nt railways, has returned to Winnipeg after inspecting the C. P. R.
bridge acriss the Columbia river. He
has not announced the result of his
Inspection but i( will hu officially
given after his return to Winnipeg.
The date for tho opening of the bridge
for passenger traffic has therefore not
jet been announced.
The board of school trustees have
appointed certain members to visit the
schools at intervals. Yesterday
Messrs. McKillop and Swannell visited
the high school and spent considerable
time in Looking into the manner in
whioh it is conducted. They seemed
pleased wilh the manner in which
Principal Clark is carrying on its
affairs.
The prisoners of the gaol this winter
have beeu kept at wort- at the quarry

loads of stone have been got out with
which a retaining wall will be built at

ing Vernon street. When this is done
it will be possible to bring Vernon
street west of Ward street, up to grade

The proposal to have the usual grant
to the celebration of Dominion day
from the eity council, this year devot
ed to the rowing regatta does not meet
wi h universal acceptance among the
young men, and they think there
would be more general amusement got
lrom spending the money in tbo sports
that have been given herstofore.
Those who have this sentiment ou the
qnestion will likely present their
views to the city council at its next
meeting.
The annual meeting of the Nelson
Library Association will bo held tt
the Library rooms nt 8 p.m. on Wed
nesday, Feb tilth It is requested that
all the subsscribers und those that aro
interested iu the Library will attend.
Yesterday a numhor of large pack
ing cases were delivered to vanousciti
zuns shipoed full of goods from the T.
lOaton company, of Toronto, and Nelson probably receives less of this class
of goods in this way than neighboring
towns, but still it gets its share. A
rather novel departure in this line
was encountered this week when a
young lady, who presumably is a
steady customer oi the eastern firms,
went into a dentist's office and asked
how muoh the pi ice of a fu 11 set of
teeth wonld be. When told the
amount she was horrified and said:
"Ob, I won'tjpay that. I know I can
get it done far cheaper than that by
sending to Eaton's."
J. A. Macdonald, of Rossland,
arrived In the city yesterday on his
way homo aftor visiting the Silver
Hill mine. Mr. Macdonald stated that
a third shipment of ore of between 250
and 1)00 tons would be ready by tomorrow for loading at the wharf at
Crawford Hay. There are 50 men employed at the mine, and it is the intention of the management to keep up
the weekly shipments of about 30(1
tons. The roads at present are making shipping difficult but this will
uot last for long, and so far has not
interfered with shipping as a complete
system of transfer has been arranged.
It may be necessary to stop shipping
for a week or two if the roads get too
bnd, but this will not be done unless
absolutly compulsory. Mr. Macdonald
is well pleased with thc outlook at the
mine.
CAKE OF CHILDREN.
llr. Hall Lectures OB This Interesting
Topic.
At the Baptist church last evening
a very interesting lecture was delivered hy Dr. Hull,on the caie of infants,
under the auspices of the Florence
Crittenden Society. The suggestions
given in the lecture were most variable to every mother u.ld to those to
whom the care of children is entrust'
I, Speiiliing of discuses he said there
wan very little danger of a child inheriting disease, but it might inherit
a disposition towards nny particular
ailment which would mnke it a very
easy mntter for it to ccntruct tlic particular disease. The principal causes
ol mortality among Infants were
neglect,exposure to oold and improper
feeding. More children diu from the
Inst cause than from tho other two put
together.
Speaking of bathing, he suid that nt
first a chi'd should be bathed twice
a day, three mintuea being long
enough time to lake in giving it tne
bath. He touched on the dungeis of
cotton clothing in a climate like this
where the hottest days Were followed
liy cool evenings. The skin boing
chilled was frequently responsible for
cases of colic, and indigestion.     Cold

children's teeth showing how proper
care of tlieir first teetn made the
second teeth much moro sightly and
made them last longer, decay being
prevented in a great measure by Cue
way the flrst teeth had been taken
care of. A child should not be rocked,
but should be fed and put to bed
awake, in a dark room if possible,
and if this was started from birth
little trouble would be experienced as
lhe child grew up. He dwelt on the
great injury causod to children by
frightening them in any way or in
using fear as an agent of punishment.
The habit of mothers of waking up a
baby to show it to neighbors or
friends was very bad. It startled the
child and then if it cried it was generally fed which caused still more
trouble. He drew a diagram of the
brain and explained the growth of tho
brain of child and showed how necessary it was that the flrst fow years of
a child's life should be spent as
quietly and with as little excitement
as possible, and how habits formod lu
the first two years of life wero kept
up. Fresh air was a necessity with
children and it was something they
got far too little of. Tbey should not
be exposed to sudden changes, but by
oxercising proper precautions fresh air
was good for them nt all times after
they were a week old. In feeding a
child the limited capacity of a ohild's
stomaoh should be remembered. He
gave thc proportions of lood to be
givon a child at various ages and
showed how dangerous the custom was
of giving a child anything but milk
till seven months old at least.
