skull do not harden and knit togeth-
er until the brain is developed. That
is Nature's way to protect the think-
ing machinery.
This soft spot, normal in early life
gradually closes. By the time the
eighteenth month is reached the!
closure should be complete. But in
rickets there may be delay in this
process and the soft spot persists
until the third or fourth year.
There are certain general symp-
toms. Among them are sweating of
the head, paleness of the skin, weak-
ness, restlessness and much crying.
Of course the muscles are soft and
flabby. They always are in general
debility from any cause.
rickets the weakness of the muscles
may be so pronounced that the baby
can’t sit up and is very late in at-

Because of the muscle weakness,
the abdominal walls gives way. In
consequence there is “pot belly.”
The poor little legs cannot support
themselves. There is “knock-knees.”
The child is too frail to stand. The
bones are so soft they bend.

“Pigeon breast and “pending” of
the ribs are other symptoms. Early
decay of the baby teeth is another
sign of the disease.
In seeking the cause for rickets
we go at once to errors in feeding
and to lack of sunlight. Unless the
food given a baby is rich in lime,
phosphorous and the vitamins there
is sure to be trouble.
In a curative way the most valu-
able food is cod liver oli. As a pre-

products would find better profits in

cording to W. A. Sumner, University
of Wisconsin who points out that a
classified ad in city papers often
will bring more customers than a
farmer can supply.
He points out the necessity of the
farmer poultry producer being in
position to take care of orders in
prompt and efficient manner and to
be able to supply a good reliable pro-
duct, which in the case of eggs would
mean, fresh, large-sized and clean
Tihs direct to the consumer busi-
ness depends upon repeat orders and
poultrymen must keep up the
quality of their shipments so that
customers will not look elsewhere for
eggs or poultry. A satisfied customer
is the best advertisement that the
producer can have. °
It pays to have neat cartons and
crates for marketing eggs and some
times a producer ‘can develop a
trademark name that will help bring
more orders and customers.
