"Hut say, I.ainpsoii." Joe heaid nil

"Not a bit of It." said Lamps, n

The freighter himself hasn't n Idea
of what he Is carrying. They have
been doing this for a long time and
have never had any trouble, but the
b ss can't help fe ling a little anxious,
so he always chases the boy off down
the road to make sure where the money
train is."
Joe's first Impulse had been to shout
a greeting, but lis the words reached
him he realized In a flash what they
meant. The inysiery of his monthly
mission that had so puzzled him was a
mystery no longer.
"I don't see why we should have a

"But," askisl one of the others, "sup

''If I can't convince him that the

afraid Kitty would greet him With a
neigh, but sm oly ruised her head

He had ridden her bardmik as of-,

he was o-i her, making his way. by n

As Boot! as he was beyond earshot lu
gave Kitty her head aud sjksJ sway.
His Idea, had Lj-cii that all bv.had

Is suppowl to know the money . is thi-re
but the agent at liidshurg and tlie
superintendent." It was tlie company's
secret, and Joe dared . nut betiay' it
even to the frelght-r. .
At hist a sparkle fur ahead showed
him the embers of a .-dying, camp-tire,
and soon he was near enough to make
out the big prairie schooners. He had
found Conzalez" outlit. , ..
'The voice of timidity Mliispcred that,

"Just a s you l.Ue," yawiiisl lhi
freighter. "There's a big bah- of

So Joe tethered Kitty Ui fhe wdui'j

TradiOo'i and mperstition. It Is said,

(s-ntury. the age of education and pro
gress, it is surprising what erroneous

j In w.uie of the more common afl
j ments .f children a doctor hears at
limes pt-i-uliar views expressed. Many
, patients are quite under the impression
j that it is for their children's welfare
that they tdiouid contract hie young
such diseases as measles, whooping
tough and chicken kix. or glassiKix,
and they- will even go so far as to ex
sise tliem to infection, so as to. as
they express it. "get it over and done
with." r
As a matter of fact there is no rea
son or necessity why any child should
suffer from any one of these diseases.
Happy is the family that escapes them,
for then there is t cham-c of the young
sters, growing up healthy men and wo
men iiml useful members of society.
. .Most uiToiioopsi ideas prevail as t,t
the effect of those complaints of ehild
hood. I have often heard 11 sit id. "Oh,
it's on measles;" or chicken pox. a
the ease may ls iiite oblivious to af
ter effects. Any one who would take
the trouble to read health statistics
would soon Is- convinced that measles
especially is not to be trifled with. And
yet 'medical men as a rule rind a reck
less disregard for isolation, ,and in
ninny cases not even the precaution cf
calling in the family, doctor, the result
befog naturally that the disease
spreads. at ils.nwu sweet will and often
wprks havoc.
, In the treatment of this complaint,
iig.iiii. delusions nud erroneous ideas
cxisf, among a large number of thit
community. Tradition, so it appears t
me, is more prevalent' with regard t
measles than almost any other chil
dren'sMisense. A remedy that has been hf.nded
down from 'mot hot- to daughter for I
don't know hW inmy genernt'ioiis is
saffron. Now, what effect saffron has
upon tliiK"pa!tieular fever no doctor
knows. Certainly there is no peculiar
element' it! its eoniposil ion that, nn, s
il a necessity. When one remembers
that saffron is merely a 'dye principal
ly used commercially' in tint role and
that it possesses no medicinal value,
one fulls to liiideis'.aufl why it is ft
universally usul. The only thing to
lie said in its favor is that, While being
useless, it is linrniloss.
A favorite"- ail'ditiou.' to ,..saffroii, is
brandy; but, as saffron is harmless,
brandy., on the, other hand, especially
with baliies and young children, is poa.:
itively injurious, and should never be
given except utidenTnodicnl advice.
Children are always thirsty in their
feverish ailments. Yet how seldom lhe
mother thinks of giving her child water
to drink, 'it is nearly always milk
another,. popular delusion. Milk is aa
excellent food, but it dot's not quench
thirst; in fact, it increases it. Give
tle child cold boiled" water and it will
become quiet and less fretful.
A very popular error is that spirits
.keep the cold out. As n matter of fact
i'.'.'.v do just the op;tfisi(e. Alcohol in
creases, the iiciion of the skin, opens
I lite pores, and makes the individual
J u i,Tf liable, to conn-act Chills and colds,
I. "ft en witb.'.:rious results. A glass of
j.hot miik is far better iind much chean-
if tid purer. .- : ,
