THE ROANOKE " BEACON C V. W. AUSBON Em,- .rjr.;i.jy!,;.. p. s. AUSBON PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY. Plymouth, N. C, Friday, Dec, 7t 1917. WHAT MOTHERS CAN DO. Mothers Are Asked to Co operate with Quarantine Officer to Control Con tagious Diseases. NjbDJy knows what! it means to hivi a si ek chill lik-3 tin m thir, t.ia'' for:5-. I a .11 ask: a.? tho m ithJM oi t'ais crxity, espec:- ally, to co-operate witness, t,:cn county quarantine oiii:er, anu 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 month reported to me were : Whooping Cough : William A. Spraill. Thursto i and William Hornablue, James Coleman, Jr..
