"There'a something wrong with
you if you aren't hungry," Mr. Bear
declared wisely. "Have you been
eating something you shouldn't, that
has civen vou the stomach-ache?"
Silkie Bear nodded her head,
meaning that she had eaten some
thing forbidden. But Cuffy shook
his head, meaning that he hadn't any

"Which one shall I believe?" She
bent over and looked at her children
sharply. And then she reached for

nounced grimly, "won't hurt either
of you. Here's a piece of bitter herb
that Aunt Polly Woodchuck gave
me last summer. She said it was
fine for almost anything. Open your
mouth now, children, and I ll,give a
bit to each of you."
Neither Cuffffy nor Silkie obeyed.
"Open!" Mrs. Bear ordered in a
sharper tone. "It won't taste halt
as bad as you think."
Still they kept their mouths shut
tight, though goodness knows they
tried hard enough to obey their
Usually Mrs. Bear was patient.
But this was a very busy day for
her. It's no wonder that she snap

If you don'e take this bitter herb
I'll have to give you something that
you'll like less."
Even that hint failed. Mrs. Bear
had already raised a threatening
..paw when a frightful thought flashed
through her head.
"Can't you open your mouths?
And this time they both shook
their heads miserably.
"Mercy sakes!" Mrs. Bear wailed.
"Whatever shall I do If thejr cant
open their mouths they can't eat.
And if they can't eat "
At this point Cuffy Bear interrupted

loud voice, "Ephraim! Ephraim!"
In a few minutes Mr. Bear him
self came a-running.
"Cuffy and Silkie they can't open
their mouths," Mrs. Bear sobbed.
"Run down to the pasture and ask
Aunt Polly Woodchuck what to do!"
But Mr. Bear said no, that the
famous herb doctor. Aunt Polly
Woodchuck, hadn't waked up from
her winter's sleep. "She won't stir

BABIES NEED SUNLIGHT.
Some IS year ago opponent of
paiteurned milk made many wild
statementi a to the increase in
rickets which could be expected
should this safeguard igaintt milk
borne disease be adopted.
The safeguard came into rather
general adoption, and the prophet of
disaster came into disrepute.
Hut one good that came from the
false statements was an interest in
rickets out of which hat come a ereat
deal of information about rickets that
is both scientific and practical. .
It has been proven that diet i not
an important (actor in rickets. Many
breast fed babies develop it, is do
many names Jed on certthed milk,
pasteurised milk, boiled milk, milk
powder, condensed milk, and every
other kind of food.
This, of course, doet not wholly
eliminate food as a factor, since
breast milk, as well as other varie
ties and forms of milk, may be poor,
and some babies cannot thrive on
even the best milk.
It does prove that food is not the
most important factor.
It seems that light is.
The babies develop rickets because
they need more sunlight. It is rife
in winter because there it not much
sunlight. It is rife in cities because
there is not much sunlight there.
Colored babies iu cities almost al
ways have it because they need more
sunlight than white babies do, and,
as a rule, they get less.
Therefore, to cure and to prevent
it turn on the light.
One-half hour of sunlight, shining
directly on the skin, and not through
glass, four or five times a week, will
cure it. Also, it will prevertt.
What can be done on the sunless
days and days that are too cofd for
exposure to sunlight in the open?
For this purpose the best substi
tute is the light from the white flame
of the carbon arc light. This is given
for one hour a day. The light is
placed three feet from the bared
This light has these advantages
over sunlight: It does not cause
sunburn, blistering, or even pigment
ation. Hess and Unger have cured ma,ny
cases of rickets in this way. The
same physicians have cured the dis
ease by sunlight and by mercury
vapor quartz lamps.
Strauss reports curine cases of
surgical tuberculosis scrofula, lymph
gland infection, bone and abdomi
nal tuberculosis with the carbon arc
white flame light.'
Another factor in rickets is some
deficiency of phosphorus and lime,
though just the nature of this de
ficiency is far from being settled.
Nevertheless, the internal use of
cod liver oil. based on this theory,
is accepted as both a cure and a means
of prevention. '
Jtiess and Unger predict that with
in a tew years neaitn departments
will be distributing cod liver oil and
giving carbon arc light treatments,
and in this way they will be eradi
