Lamp Will Prefect You Againsl Getting Other Fellow's Cold NEW YORK, Mar. 11.--A new lamp whoso beams protect a person against catching the other fellow's cold was announced at a meeting here of the American Institute, New York's oldest scientific society. The first installation is at the teller's window of the Lafayette Bank Trust Company at Suffem, N. Y It was described as the culmination of 10 years search for a form ol ultra-violet light to purify air and al that man touches, without hurting his eyes. In the bank window the beams form a curtain of bluish light fallini from a long, horizontal, ovcrheac tube of mercury vapor. The curtain lies bcwcen teller and customer Breaths are instantly stcrlizcd. The light kills bacteria in less than a second. The rays also kin germs on the upper surfaces of hands passing money through the window. Thcj even kill the gcrmi on the exposec side of the money This killing of the germs carried by touch Is, for most of the infectious diseases, more important than sterilizing the air The new light ha been in the Suffcrn bank a month In that time, officials said, no irritation of eyes has been noticed. What Treatment Is Best For Child's Cyclic Vomiting By LOGAN CLENDENING, »L D. THERE IS a, peculiar condition that occurs not uncommonly In children of the class more often seen In private practice than in dlspon- sary work. It It c a l l e d "cyclic vomiting", a n d It has been said t h a t to define the disease 1» to describe it. The vomiting coroco on in attacks, beginning at the a g « of about two, three or four yean Thi child begins to vomit In the m o r n i n g and k e e p It up wheniver f o o d Dr. deadening Is given Thirst soon develops and the child cries for water, but all Viater taken by mouth Is vomited The attack last* for a day or two In moat Instances, but may go on tor some time.

To explain this condition, many theories have been advanced AcW- osls has attracted the most adherents, and it Is true that the blood of these children Is on the add side, but scldosii rapidly develops in a child deprived of carbohydrates or iny starving child, and it has been phown that the vomiting 1 precedes (Ui acldosls r Allergy has also naturally been juggtstcd, because allergy is fashionable nou, but with the vague thinking that predominates in allergic circle* the argument* *re not verv convincing A reasonable fugc«0tlon that comes from Bellevue hospital, New Tork, Is that these are early man* Ifestatlons of migraine.

A number of children who had cy cllc \ om- lUng have developed migraines in adult life. (Also premature graying of the hair, an observed fact In mlRroinous people, without any explanation). In treatment, the migraine theory of cyclic vomiting yields practical results The attempt to treat an attack by supplying water by vein or under the skin is fruitless. Administration of alkalis and glu- coso are both of little help But If the treatment is directed towards calming 1 down the nervous sv stem, as il it were In a state oJ explosion, the results are very different. A sedative, such as the bromides, will often abort an attack in, a few hours Bromides are very good medicines for any form of functional or nervous vomiting.
