by all working together, to keep
down th)se preventable disease
like whooping cough, measles,
scarlet fever and diphtheria, as
far as is possible,
Some old fashioned mothers
m3d to believe that whooping
coagh and measles were like
taxes, just had to come, and the
sooner they "came and went,"
the better. But now mothers
know different. They know that
even if children should have
these diseases when they grow
np it goes less hard with them
then, and they are more likely
to recover without defects and
impairments. Why, when a mo
ther's baby ha3 measles if it is
less than five years old, she
"never knows whether it is going
to be left blind, deaf, lame, or
with weakened heartor kidneys,
for life. The safest plan is to
take no chances with any of
these so-called child en's diseas
es. Children don't have to have
them, and why not protect them?
Some of the things mothers
can do to keep down whooping
cough, measles, scarlet fever,
infantile paralysis and diphthe
ria in their horac3 and commu
nities are, first, to suspect the
disease and keep heme the child
ren having the first symptoms,
such as sore threats or head
colds, particularly if any conta
gious diseases is in the commu
nity. Second, in case no physi
cian is called to attend the child,
the mother should sea that the
disease is reported at once to the
county quarantine cfli'.er who
will then tell her what to do and
how to treat the ca-c. The lav
requires her to do this. Third,
every mother should respect the
Quarantine Law. It may incon
venience her slightly but what
will a few days of inconvenience
mean if it saves a child's life or
even if it saves him from a life
long defect, like blindness which
f often one of the after effects
ox measles. Themother who
disregards the Quarantine Lv;--is
not only an undesirable to
have in the community but is in
enemy of little children.
The number of case j of conta
gious diseases in this county last
