the part of parents. Naturally j
they feared the operation. A* a j
life saving measure, there are
i few surgical measures that sur
pass the mastoid operation.
A suddenly acquired Inflammation
of ihe tnaatoid Is spoken of as
"acute mastoiditis ” The signs are
I usually very plain and there is no
difficulty tn lecognlzlrg the nature
•f the trouble
As a rule, the trouble has been
preceded by earache. Uaually this
: occurs five or si* days before tho
mastoid disease develops. There may
be fever, as well as pain, and this
; is followed by a discharge from the
ir the patient is examined care
I fully, a swelling Is noticed behind
I the ear. This sign Is characteristic
of acute mastoiditis. The tissues
may fce red -nd swollen, pressing
upon it and forcing the ear down
ward and outward.
It Is difficult to find out from
young children whether they have
pain or not. They may hot com
plain of ft. Upon pressure at a
certain spot behind the ear, the ex
treme tenderness is made known at
once. This test, however, should
not be depended upon by anybody
but a physician.
Continued high fever, profuse dts
' charge from the ear or sudden
1 stoppage of a discharge which baa
been present: pain, loss of appetite 1
and restlessness. are signs which i
should not he overlooked. When
any child has these symptoms, a
; physician should he called at once.
Acute mastoiditis is most common
In children, but Is met in adults.
The symptoms are the same.
When the signs are lees pro. j

operation ts not a serious one. But

more serious than any operation
could possibly be.

Rocks In Park Half
Billion Years Old
Missoula, Mont.—What's a dif
ference of a mere half million
years wireu it comes to rocks!
However for the sake of modern
scientific estimate, Dr. C. H. Clapp,
president of the slate university of
Montana here, thinks the records
ought to be changed to state that
the rocks of Glacier national park
are a half billion to 750,000,000
years old. Not a mere 80,000,000!
Tire guide books have for years
placed the age of the park's rock
formations at about 80,000,000 years.
"That estimate is absurd in the
light of modern reckoning," says Dr.
Clapp, who has studied Glacier
park's geology for eight years.
• The age of the earth,” he says,
"has increased by leaps and bounds
according to findings of the last
few decades. When Bailey Willis
famous geologist, surveyed Glacict
park at the beginning of the cen
tury, the age of the earth was then
estimated at 100,000,000 years. Then
Glacier park's rocks were thought
to be 80,000 000 years old.
"But now to say that the earth
is a billion years old Is a conserva
tive estimate. No scientist would dis
pute that. Man has been on the
earth only 50,000 to 200,000 years—
or conservatively 100,000 years —
while there seems to be well au
thenticated proof that there arc
rock on the globe as old as 1.300,
