I remember Father Stanton once
saying that if you saw a child on the
lookout for its father, "spotting" hhn
far off and rushing to meet him with
that cry of VDaddy," you "may bet

There was all that about the little
home. And then there was the care

They were happy folk.
- Sometimes one envies happiness,
but this was happiness of a kind that
one could only wish to continue and
That was some time ago. Things
are different today. "He" has gone

house is not so bright. ' Amid her
distractions "she" has forgotten to
water the flowers in the box. We
have only caught sight of her occa
sionally and she has been paler than
she was. ' '
And the child? What has become
of him? .We learned that he was
ill. There was a light late at night
in the window of a room upstairs.
She was sitting up with the child. It
quite worried us. At last some of us
called at the house and, with many
apologies for intrusion, inquired how
the child was going on. She was
quite surprised. She did not know
that house had unknown friends.
"Tin- rhild'a much better." said the
caller there the other morning. "Go

The news of the $100 quite bright

somehow as if he had, personally had

By WOODS HUTCHINSON, M. D.
Necessity is the mother, of inven
tion and there are no necessities like
those of war.
The stress and emergencies of the
milk war drove the companies to sug
gest a temporary measure, which
might prove of real value to city
babies that of bringing small groups
of cows close to the edge of or even
into the suburbs of the city.
J his, at first sight, sounds like a
backward step to village and country
town conditions, and hands of horror
will he raised at once at the thought
of dirty, fly-swarming stables and
barnyards trodden into a filthy bog,
which would be a nuisance and a men
ace to the health of the entire neigh
borhood. And, of course, as a source
for the whole or any considerable
fraction of the supply, dairy barns
in the suburbs would be out of the
question. But for a limited and spe
cial part of the city's milk supply,
namely, that required by babies and
very young children, the plan is both
practical and possessed of real value
Esneciallv. in view of the tact that
most of our city milk is from forty-
eight to seventy-two hours old before
it reaches the homes and that stale
milk is both indigestible and un
wholesr.ne for babies, to say nothing
of the generations and millions of
germs who are given time to breed
in it. .
Indeed, it has several times been
suggested by careful and competent
students of the city milk problem ana,
in one instance at least, has actually
been put in operation on. quite an ex
tensive scale. 1 he great metropolitan
city of Buenos' Ayres, with a popula
tion, of nearly two millions, after a
very careful and competent survey ot
the situation by eminent experts, has
established or licensed one dairy of
ten to fifteen cows in every area con
tainine 10.000 population in the city
The cows, of course, are carefully se
lected, tested by tuberculin and rigidly
examined by competent veterinarians
before being permitted to be brought
into the city and kept under the strict
est and most hawk-like sanitary super
vision during their stay. .
They are housed in model dairy
barns, with cement floors, flushed
down with hose, tiled walls, all ma
nure and other waste either cremated
upon the spot or hauled out of the
city every night and, in fact, are made
not merely not a nuisance and an
eyesore, but an ornament and attrac
tion to the neighborhood. A valuable
object lesson to all children and their
parents of how a model dairy should
be conducted and what clean, pure
milk really looks and tastes like.
The milk from these exclusive bo
vine dames these daughters of the
hygienic revolution can be sold only
upon written permission from the dis
trict health officer to babies and also,
it is said, to a certain number of
invalids, and the surplus may be con
sumed upon the premises in the form
of milk or ice cream or soft cheese.
The method is said to work admir
ably and these "milk-on-the-half-
shell" stations are extremely popular
and successful, ihere is no reason
whatever, given competent health of-
ficers and intelligent dairymen, why
cows cannot be kept almost as clean
and in fully as sanitary condition as
. As the traveler in southern Europe
will probably recall, several of the
Italian cities, notably Rome, Florence
and Milan, have beautiful model
dairies in their city parks. The great
one in the famous Villa Borghese,
in Rome, is a delight to the eye, and
its ice cream and bread and milk a
pleasure to every other sense, and
every visitor to Rome ought certainly
to put it on his list of sights along
with the Sistine Chapel and the
Forum. It is not so old, but far pret
tier and more attractive and infinitely
more useful. .. .

Christie Murray knew a man who
had spent some months upon an unin

thrown by a shipwreck. Relating his
experiences on the island to a circle
of his friends one day. he told them
how, after the first week or two, when
he found that he would be . able to
keep himself alive, he began to take
things "comfortable." When he got
up in the morning in the hole he had
discovered in the rocks he trotted
down to the sea and washed himself
and "made his toilet." .
'"Toilet I" exclaimed one of the com
pany. "What difference could it
make when there was no one about
to see you?"
It seemed quite "ridiculous to him
that that unseen one felt most miser
