That nurses are badly needed and a better system of training 'tor teachers is very slrmiKly ein-phasizcd by .Mr. Dobson. The exhibit itself is well displayed and covers every phase ot cliild life. The education ot a llfe-Uiru; lan be obtained from a careful survey of its many interesting facts- and without doubt it contains more valuable information than any other diaiilay at the grounds. Deallng^'ns it doei) with chllt life, it treats Avith the war against disease, of slum life in contrast with ideal conditions, with child diseases and detects iiml with many regrettable facts In connection with child lite; Happily It not only deals witlu the unfortunate part but also suggests the remedy. That fact the loss ot life due to' indifference in Cauatja is twice as great (is Canadian casualties at war should make ijvery-one study this great exhibit to find tlio remedy. - - Paris, July 2,").-Tlio trial ot Louis J. Maivy, former minister of the" Interior, which had become an interminable squabble among the officials of the :pretecture, the police and the detective service, relative to responal-billty for certain acts done or left^ undone, woke into new life today when an elegantly, but simply dress'ed lady took the stand. A large hat. concealed her face and her name was given as ?iladame Le Bruns. She testified she Iiad made thirteen trips to Germany, where she had been entrusted with mis.sions in France, although she was really in the service of the French general headquarters. John F.

Beforo leaving Ireland I had our Ui^ughter Lillian to two of thb moat promlni^nt liye Spoolallsts. Her eyes nt that time were very badly crossod, so much so only part of the pupil was visible. Tha consultation and medicine cost ?60.00, .with no results, and was advised nothing but an operation would straighten the eye. When I arrived In Conlhurst I w^s advised to seo Dr, Miller of Calgary, which 1 did, and I am delighted to say that by using th� glasBOB ho. prescribed my daughter's eye has been straikHtened. , . v. � :,MRS.

During the war -there has come to many minds the �revelation ot our amazing IndlffDrence to liumaii wel-tarci, uH indicated by our child mortality, morbidity, mental and physical defect and juvenile delinquency. Sir Arthur Newaholme, a most eminent English atatlstlcian has said: "Infant mortality Is the most sensl-tivo Index we po.ssosa of social wolfnre. The infant death rate measures the Intelligence, health and right Uviiig of parents, the moral Hlaiidards of communities and governments, and the etncicncy of physicians, lieaith of-fleers, nurses and educator.l." ' Observe where we as Canadians rate ourselves in the matter ot human welfare. As a standard ot achievement the following splendid records may bo noted; ' The City ot New York has reduced .Its Infant mortality to �l per 1000 births. London, England has reduced its infant mortality to 87 per 1000 births. New Zealand has made a record of 51 per 1000, covering the entire state, while Dunedin, a city ot 00,000 population has liad the splendid rate of only'38 per thousand. Those.include the number of deaths under one year of age per 1000 live birthH, still births being excluded In botli births and deaths. in 1915 throughout Canada there were approximately 28,000 infant I deaths under one year ot age record- \ od In Canada. , Allowing tor very inadequate rogiiitration ospociaily in rural districts, the infant deaths would number at least 32,000. We are quite safe in saying that we can save In Canada per year IC.OOO of who die under one year, and prevent-Iblo deaths under five years ot age number at least 30,000. The following are ^he death rales by provinces under one year per 1000 births during 15)10: - Quebec .............. 147 Nova. Scotia ........... 127 Manitoba ............ 10,"i Ontario............... 102 British Columbia ...... 98 Saskatchewan ........ SO Alberta............... 58 It is well for Saskatchewan and Alberta to be humble in referring to their low death rate for the registration of vital statistics, especially In rural districts is challenged as inad-quate. The following are 'the data from some of our larger cities; 1912 191C Montreal...... 200 186 Toronto ....... 144 93 Winnipeg...... 199.5 117 Vancouver .. .. ... ' G1.8 St. John .......... 120 Ottawa........... 188 Winnipeg and Toronto have both appreciably lowered their death rate in 1917. In the province ot Manitoba last year the infant mortality rate outside of Winnipeg was higher than In Winnipeg, revealing the need of aggressive action- in town and open country. It will be seen that Canada's capital city, Ottawa, is unique in more than one way. It now iiolds the record for having the highest death rate in Canada. Vancouver also has a unique place and an enviable record among the Urge cities of Canada. The death rate by wards In 1916-17 In Ottawa will reveal one ot the disastrous results, ot slum conditions and neglect ot housing, etc, Ottawa City deaths under one year per 1000 births. Wards Rideau................. 4G Ottawa ..'.............. 300 By .................2G0 St. George ..........;.. 104 Central ................ 211 Wellington ............. 110 Dalhonsle ......,........ 127 Capital................ 120 Victoria ............... 220 It will be seen that Ottawa ward has 6"VL' times the rate of Rideau ward. That indicates the price we pay tor sitftna. Every city mortality map tells the aaiiie story. Take the province of Saskatchewan and we find recorded In 191G, 50G1 deaths of all ages, and 285 still births. Ot these 1,75G were exclusive of still births under one year, or over one third of tlie total deaths. If still births are included, over one half the loss ot life In Saskatchewan in 191(i .was five years oj! age and 60 per cent, under 13 years of age, when life's productive period lies ahead. If Canadian democracy is to stand the strain of coming days It must make good by slopping the slaughter of our innocents by Indifference, Igdorance and selfishness.
