LITTLE ITALY DISCUSSES DEVELOPMENTS IN THE
PHILADELPHIA SECOND CITY OF EAST
IN THE NUMBER OF BABIES WHO DIE
In Whole Country it Is Surpassed Only by Chicago and Baltimore.
Neio York and Montclair, N. J., Have Remarkably
Loio Infant Death Rates.
Philadelphia Is prominent nmong tho
cities In tho number of babies who die.
Nearly B00O died last 5 ear within tho city
limits, nnd many of theso wee mites of
humanity could have been saved If the
mothers had known how to take euro of
them during tho first scar of their lives.
Only two cities exceeded Philadelphia
last year In tho Infant death rate, and
they wero Chicago and Baltimore. Tho
deaths per 1003 In Chicago wero 132.7, In
Baltimore, lol 6, and In Philadelphia. 121.3.
New York, that vortex of humanity, where
ono would think a baby could not survive,
showed tho lowest Infant mortality rata
of all the largo cities, 04 C, out of eery
1000. Montclair, 2f. J had the lowest
record of all, with only 3S deaths In every
1000 babies born In 1914.
The secret of success In New York and
Montclair lies In tho education of tho
mothers, according td Albert Cross, secre

"A determined effort has been made In
New York for the last raven or eight
ears to check the Infant death rates,"
&ald Mr. Cross. "This city will have to
do the some If It wishes to save Its babies
New York has tho best organized division
of child hygiene In tho country and has
expended hundreds of thousands of dol
lars In the scientific education or mothers
and In having puro milk laws enforced.
Ono would naturally expect that a city
like New York would have an enormous

being used to combat the evil prevent this.

to educate them Is to spend money. The
only work of this kind now being done
In tho city Is through private agencies,
such as tho Child Federation, but things
look promising for a municipal division
of child hygiene."
"Montclair considers the health of Its
babies of more Importanco than the con
servation of Its hogs and horBes," said
Dr. Elizabeth Mcrcells, head of the baby
clinic in Montclair. ".Money put Into tho
scientific care of babies produces more
deslrablo results than appropriations ror
checking tho spread of hog cholera and
breeding better strains of animals.
"Nothing Is so worth while saving ns a
baby," he continued "Ono adequate law
which guaranteed absolutely pure milk
for babies nil over the country would do
more to safeguard our future ns a nation

Doctor Mercells' Mrst rule for tho.' baby's
health is nroDer feeding, Blnce a baby's

A PHILADELPHIA newspaper, noted for its upholding

FACTS VERSUS FALLACIES articles appearing every
Wednesday and Saturday:
"PERTAIN features, it will be admitted, show a marked
improvement. The matter is written in better vein
and in a better tone than usually put forth. ... It is duly
signed by the organization responsible for it. The argu
mentative purpose is well sustained."
pROM the beginning these articles have been pleas for
x Temperance in eating, thinking, speaking, as well as
drinking ; and we feel that the editorial commendation ac
corded this series is deserved.
TT is a FALLACY to suppose that the word Intemperate

coholic stimulants. It is a FACT that intemperate eating,
thinking and speaking has much to do with the misery in

What a difference
an L. B. card ledger makes !
The Mishawaka Woolen Manufacturing Co., of
Mishawaka, Ind., is going through the pleasant
experience of a steadily increasing btlsiness.
As its business grew, so, until recently, did
the bookkeeper's row of ledgers and it finally
exceeded fifty volumes.
When one of these was being used by the
accounting, credit or sales force, about a
thousand accounts were tied up. This inter
fered a great deal with the office work, and
resulted in much lost time.
Now they have a Library Bureau card ledger 1
What a difference it makes 1 lore Ivork done
in half the time, Ivith less effort.
We'll be glad to show you what an L. B. card
ledger will do for you. It simplifies account
keeping, cuts out lost motion and makes work
easy for the whole office force.
