MORRIS FISHBEIN EALTH ' 'Editor, Journal of the American Medical Association, and of Hygeia, „' the Health Magazine ,' A few weeks ago an old man in Tent nessqe was bitten, by a rat and shortly thereafter developed rat bite fever. People generally astonished that the j bite of a rat could produce a definite •f disease, and also that such a case had /.occurred in the United States. ; , Actually, rat bite fever is a well* recognized disorder. Recently a good many cases were reported among men y?ho had been working in the sewers r in London. little anecdotes, plans for stories, and so on. ,-':- . In one place; for instance, Mark Twain projects a story of Huck Finn and Tom Sawyer in their old age; in another, hie starts: a tale about a man who is pitched out of a trans-oceanic balloon onto the'/ Illinois prarie; another entry records the incident from which grew "The Jumping Frog." It's a book .ho lover of Mark Twain will want to miss. Published by Harper's, it sells for; $4. YOUR CHI1DREN By Olive Roberts Barton Many letters from mothers tell of When human beings are bitten 'by j their disapprove? of the neighbors' .' .animals of the rodent type, including 1 incidentally not only the rat. but the ' weasel, the pig, and occasionally even the cat, they are sometimes infected with a peculiar organism which produces a disease of the whole body. This disease is characterized by short Attacks of .fever, alternating with periods: without fever, and an eruption 'Y/on the skin. Such cases have been ^'Jcnown in the United States for a cen- 1 'ttury. ''» The usual course of such a case, is ,as follows: After the person, has-been bitten, the iwound heals promptly unless a sec•'infection occurs*. Owe to three ^ ,,,.. later, the/spot of''the biteVtie- u .comes red and swollen, and the per•l^son. who is infected develops the us- jwUal.symptoms. of., infections in general J5' . -^headache, • general pains, and fever, ,V<gEoWtiifi8s. "a""chiir and a feeling of EiCfaiess. ~ ,' " Finally an eruption appears, at first most prominent in the region of the 'swound, but later spreading over the -dy. -. From this time on, attacks of fever occur every five or six days, ;sometimes less frequently. Gradually the person loses weight and may •'3ftbe.coine exceedingly sick, due to loss ? '*'of nutrition and general health. Between 6 and 7 per cent of the -•people who are infected eventually v-'.'-die of the disorder. ?'V There have been instances of chil- ! 5 * r<Jdren who have been bitten by rats ^ 4-when teft alone by their parents, par- f f *fticularly when they lived in basement or poverty-stricken tenements. j£O| course, a cat may become contam- i-inated through its hunting of rate. n The doctor makes his diagnosis of ';this condition not only by the symp- "~" toms that have been mentioned, but •also by finding the germ which causes , the disease in the wound, and examining material taken directly lymph glands near the wound. from children as playmates for their own. Two from widely separated cities presented almost identical problems. In one case a little boy neighbor acted "as though he was not quite right." The other writer mentioned a small girl who was nervous and silly and full of bad habits. In both stories these mothers told how their own children had changed from quiet mannerly folk to untidy rowdies, aping the habits of the daily visitors and losing interest in normal play and toys. "And yet." said both letters in effect, "children need company. There are no other childrpniriear- and to forbid these undesirables the house seems cruel. They won't take telling, their own mothers, won't make them mind, and as we own our property and can't move, what !sHcf'.Be done?" Must Decide Themselves I am asked, to settle what these worried ladies ' cannot settle for themselves. If they cannot find an answer, I wonder if Solomon could? In such matters mother instinct should find a way, because "there is no code that covers neighbors or neighbors' children and each case has intimate bearings that an outsider cannot know. A woman's house is her castle, her children and their future are hers to look out for—she" is responsible and that responsibility gives her authority. If the daily visitor is a nuisance, if the effect of his presence is a constant risk to the standard she has set for her own children, any mother has the right to say, "Go home and don't come back." And to her own small fry, "Play alone when you are outside." Years' Training Endangered Yes, children need company, but this does not mean "any" company. The "other" child, full of bad habits, is always easy to follow. Good children seldom bring the outlaws up to their j level. It is almost always the other h Hart © iar> ::EA THE NEW DEAL IN WASHINGTON : ,—,BY RODNEY DUTCHER WASHINGTON.—The staunches! defender of the Ned Deal could hardly profess that it doesn't have its silly 1 phases.

She cannot salvage what someone else as persistently ruins. And why should she bother when she is busy enough as it is? eld McLean mansion, scene of the wildest and gaudiest parties of official and unofficial society here during Harding-Cooldige-Hoover days. The Works Progress Administration ras taken over that huge pile as headquarters for handling its projects for employment of unemployed writers, artists, and musicians. Incidentally, 1 you aren't supposed to call it "the McLean mansion" any more. Orders have come down to the WPA boys and girls to refer to it as "1500 I Street." which is the address with admonition that the less publicity given to the nature of the place, the better. What most of the employes call it, when not ni the presence of superiors —and they're not very serious about it, either—is the "Palace of Culture." Bars Up Even on Press WPA is distinctly self-conscious about those quarters. A guard stands at the door to see that no non-employe gets in without an appointment. Even newspapermen are told that they must get written permission from an official many blocks away if they want to go inside and see anyone. That's a bizarre • innovation for Washington, where sightseers customarily roam at will through government buildings and correspondents usually travel where they please. Newspapermen complaining about this absurdity are told that it's only the blunder of a minor official and that the order will be countermanded. It seems that every tourist, sightseer, and unoccupied middle-aged lady in town was making a bee-line for the celebrated mansion to look it over. Hired guides would bring 40 or 50 folks at a time to show them through. And as there are no corridors and you start stumbling into desks almost .-is soon as you're in the door, that couldn't be allowed. Just the same, there's plenty of official sensitiveness about the place.

Provided crenm is used afterward, n musk if especially good for dry and normnl complexions that tend to wrinkle; mid, when cream is omitted, it is excellent for oily ones. There nro various masks, of course. Practically every cosmetic company makes nt least one nnd n few put out two or three, some that dry quickly— rlhers which take longer. Your choice must depend on the length of time you cnn devote to beauty. If you prepare your own mask—nn cnsy job to do. less expensive and more satisfactory—try that old favorite, whipped egg. Simply tnke one fresh egg. sep- iinitc the yolk from the white nnd bent each one lightly in a bowl. Clean your skin with soap nnd water, pal on skin tonic, dry nnd apply n thin Inycr of tho beaten white. Let dry, nnd smooth on n coat of the yolk. Then, without jpetiking, laughing or wrinkling sip your fncc in nny way whatsoever. Hi' down for twenty minutes. As you rest, try to think only plensant thoughts so the corners of your mouth will turn up nnd your brow will remain calm. Make Sure Skin Is Very Clean j If you can. don't think at all. There's la good deal lo be snid in favor of j letting ycur mind be blank for n few minutes now nnd then. It helps to eliminate worry lines. Of course this is n trick that lakes practice. Start this way: Gaze at some small, rather colorless object, concentrating on it, thinking of nothing else. In about three minutes, slowly close your eyes, still vi.sioning nnd thinking of (he little object. Don't concentrate so keenly on it now, but don't let other thoughts crowd themselves into your mind. Gradually, ns you practice, thoughts ol the object will fade. If other thoughts do creep in. they'll seem hazy and far away. When you perfect this state of mind, undoubtedly you'll fall asleep. Remember that nny kind of mask first with warm water, then with cold and unless your skin is oily, pat on rich tissue cream. When you have removed it, use skin tonic again. Remember that any kind of mash must be smoothed on skin which is scrupulously clean and, to get full benefit, ought to be left on until quite dry.
