a repetition In Galicia of what occurred

The German and the Austrian reports

In fact military men express the be

the river could have draped.
The Russians also claim that further
up the Dniester, directly south of Lem

CALRA STILLMAis, rKKSIDENT OP THE BIRTH CONTROL
LEAGUE, WHO ADVOCATES "MONTCLAIR BABY RULES."
Ninety-four babies out of every thousand born In New York died last
year. Only thirty-eight babies died In Montclair, N. J., out of every thon
sand born during the same period. Much credit for this low rate of Infant
mortality In the latter city Is given the Montclair Day Nursery, which pre
scribes the following decade of baby health rules: .
First (Jive a baby pure milk and watch Its feeding very closely.
Second Keep everything connected with a baby absolutely clean.
Cleanliness in the house accounts fdr a baby's health. Untidy babies are
usually sick babies.
Third Never let a baby get chilled. Keep its bands and feet warm.
Fourth Regulate a baby's day by the clock. Everything about Us
wants should be attended to at schedule time.
Fifth Diminish a baby's food the minute signs of illness appear.
Most babies are overfed, anyway...
, Sixth Weigh a baby every week until it is a year old. Its weight Is
an Index to Its health. '
Seventh Every mother should get daily outdoor exercise. It means
better health for her babies.
. liighth Every baby should be "mothered" more and mauled leas.
Babies thrive on cuddling, but they can get along on a lot less kissing.
Ninth -Don't amuse or play with your baby too much. Its regular
daily routine la all the stimulation. Us little brain needs at first.
Tenth Don't let too many different people take care of the baby.
Even members of the same family make a baby nervous If they fuss around
