Mickey Mouse and Minnie'B house; top center, auto section of toy shop; below, Alaskan reindeer; right, Santa and ilttle girt. By LILIAN CAMPBELL, A trip down town nowadays on a day when school is not in session Is quite an adventure, for youngsters and their guardians are everywhere--in the shops, on the street, n the streetcars and suburban trains, in the restaurants. More especially are they in the shops where Santa Glaus holds sway, for in spite of wars and rumors of wars, accidents, murders and sudden deaths, the kindly old white-boarded saint with his reindeer and his pack of toys means Christmas for the youngsters. One large department store has a really, truly pack of reindeer for = children to graze upon. It is imported from Alaska, and one of the number is pictured here, all ready harne.ssed for tho trip on Christmas eve. This same store has modeled its toy department after the Century of Progress exposition, and Santa sits upon a very modernistic throne where he talks to the little boys and girls and gets their confidence anent what they want for Christmas. And Santa is not the only allurement for the children in the shop. There is a cunning house for Mickey Mouse and Minnie, just big enough for them to live in and for the young visitors to pass through. There is a little Belgian village, a replica of the one at the Chicago exposition, too, and a motor or transportation building, also modeled after the exposition, part of which is pictured. You can get every kind of vehicle here that delights the boyish heart-from a- Ford to a Lincoln--all complete. This is only one of the Ingenious ways of attracting children to the shops and their equally delighted parents, for Toyland has as great a charm for the grownups as for the children. In the doll departments Alice in Wonderland and the Three Little Pigs are very much in evidence this Christmas, as well as babies and little girl and boy dollies galore, of both domestic and Imported varieties. And to go with the dolls are wonderful furniture, as well as clothes and luggage, dishes and household equipment. And electric trains and equipment are more marvelous than ever, with every device to interest and educate--for toys do that, you know, according to the best psychologists.

Sleeping- sickness--the genuine thing and the similar maladies BO called--was the subject of a talk before the Lions club Wednesday noon by Dr. J. B. Jllnor, Jr., of Charles City. Special attention was given to the St. Louis outbreak of encephalitis B which came into being last July and is now in definite subsidence. True sleeping sickness, it was pointed out, exists only in equatorial Africa and is based on the bite of a fly. Encephalitis as it occurs elsewhere is a brain infection, the exact cause of which lias not been determined. Vigorous attempts have been made at St. Louis to isolate the organism responsible for the malady but up to this time, without success. Virus Believed Responsible. "The best opinion," sa!5 the Charles City doctor, "is tliat a virus of the Infantile paralysis type is responsible for encephalitis, that rather than a bacteria." The symptoms of the disease starting with the initial headache twitchlngs of the face or abdomen and eye squint, were described b; the speaker. "The mental symptoms of the acute stage," he said, show nothing distinctive. There may be drowsi ness which merges into stupor o: coma. Or, on the other hand, then may be overactivlty, excitement restlessness and delirium. Th acute condition lasts about thre weeks but it sometimes persists fo months. Adverse after affects . follow immediately but often ther is a free interval." Like Japanese Outbreak. That the St. Louis type of encephalitis simulates an outbreak of the disease in Japan a few years ago was another interesting point developed by Dr. Minor. For purposes of Identifying it, the nomenclature B has been applied to It. The mortality rate at St. Louis has been about 18 out of 100. Those who have recovered appear to be without 111 effects, physically or Here's a Real MONEY SAVING OFFER The Famous AUTOMATIC WASHER Is Seriously III.

Compared with' other ep- 'demlc dlaeaaea, the St. Louis malady has not been highly contagious, as proved by the fact that In only a few cases have there been more than one victim In a home, or even In a, neighborhood. Children Hardest Hit. Generally speaking" children up to 14 yeara of age are moat permanently marred by encephalitis. Whereas In maturity its after effects are largely physical, in hoys and girls, personality and behavior are adversely affected. The St. Louis epidemic was marked by the fact that it \va« largely confined to persona of maturity, oven old age. Encephalltes ian't an uncommon cifaeaae, the doctor observed. Only when it becomes epidemic does it attract newspaper headlines and popular interest. Newspapers, he stated, had been helpful in the St. Louia community in directing attention to the epidemic and obtaining the popular co-operation which has brought a complete solution of the problem. Interesting Experiments. Dr. Minor told of experiments conducted in laboratories to determine the cause of the ailment. One set of experiments proved that mos- quitoe.q have nothing to do with H. Ten convicts from Mississippi won their freedom by submitting to these teats and three medical men subjected themselves to the hazard as a. contribution to science. Various animals were tested in a like manner. Both the water supply of St. Louis and the milk supply have been cleared of blame. A. widely held theory that vapor from the sewer system might be responsible was dispelled. A pair of African missionaries returned to St. Louis just a month ahead of the first cases in July were under suspicion for a time but they too were exonerated Because the cause of the disease has not been determined, it ha? been impossible, the speaker explained, to set up a specific treatment. Each case has to be treated in the light of its own symptoms. Cnn't Bo Predicted. "The appearance of encephalitis,' Dr. Minor concluded, "cannot b_ predicted. The restriction of the outbreak to St. Louis and its im mediate vicinity over a period o several months without spread re moves the fear o£ appearance of thi disease in other sections of the country, as so frequently happens in communicable disease outbreaks. "Up until Oct. 1, 1933. there ha- been in the St. Louis community o a million persons about 1,000 case with 184 deaths, a case fatally of If per cent. It need not be aajd. bow ever, that at this timn more than over, all sickness should be put un cler the care of a physician at th earliest possible time, howeve toubtful it may be that even scat tered cases of encephalitis will ap pear."
