HOW OGALA HELPS

The State of Florida in Caring for
Its Crippled Indigent
Children
December 31, 1917.
Dr. W. H. Cox, State Health Officer,
Jacksonville, Fla.:
My dear Doctor: Herewith is sub
mitted a report of six months work
at the hospital for crippled children
now located at Ocala, Fla. Your
superintendent has been aggressively
active in this work in that the school
teachers of Florida have been made
interested. As a method, it was
suggested that a talk to school teach teachers
ers teachers at the monthly or annual meeting
would be the best way. So a "state "statement"
ment" "statement" was prepared and delivered to
a body of several hundred members
of the Florida Educational Associa Association
tion Association at Daytona, Fla., on Dec. 28,
1917. The School Room published the
statement, which was as follows:
A Statement
Madam President of Teachers of the
Florida Educational Association:
I represent the hospital for crip crippled
pled crippled children, located at- Ocala and
under the auspices oftheFlorida State
Board of Health.
. Why am I here? First, because
Miss Nellie Stevens, the bright and
progressive principal of the Ocala
primary school, has said that the
Florida teachers should have an op opportunity
portunity opportunity of looking into this great
work, and because I, too, am a teacher
and I want the co-operation of you
teachers. I take a body or a part of
a body that is defective and teach it
how to use parts of members that
would otherwise become atrophied
from disuse. The treatment is indeed
surgical but the child must be taught
how to use the limb after the latter
has been straightened.
Why is the State Board of Health
doing this?
The answer is, as an investment.
You ask how can that be?
If $100 to $300 is expended in the
treatment of a deforced or hunch hunchbacked
backed hunchbacked child at six years of age and
a cure ,is effected, the board says that
is better lor tne commonwealth than
thirty years of dependency if not
pauperism in the subsequent life ,of
the cripple.
How many states are doing this
work free? Just five beside Florida.
How to secure admission. Write to
Dr. W. H. Cox, state health officer,
Jacksonville, Fla. He is my chief and
will furnish you with blanks and de details.

Conditions for admission:
Patient must be a child, white or
colored, native of Florida, curable,
non-contagious, responsible, indigent.
How many children are now in the
hospital? Only nine, but eleven more
are being treated in the outdoor de department,

for attention. The outdoor depart department

practically nothing.

How can teachers help ?

induce them to have the child cared

are plastic tractable, and like its

growth and improvement.
Being a new appointee to succeed

circular letter .was addressed to each
doctor in Jacksonville, asking what

etc., that they had rendered in a pro professional

The letters of response were very
gratifying and it is a pleasure to
hereby acknowledge it publicly. The
doctors of Ocala were then ap approached

in a reasonable way if called upon.
The response was equally gratifying
and it is to be noted that each one has
been as good as his word.
It was recognized that a public in interest

children should be something more

ONE OF WORLD'S CURIOSITIES
Fir Tree in Belgium Has Characteris Characteristics

Far as Known.
j
What Is claimed to be one of the
most curious trees in the world was
found In Belgium by M. Louis PIre,
president of the Royal Botanical So Society
ciety Society of Belgium. It is a fir tree, still
standing at last account, In the forests
of Allaz, Canton of Vaud.
"This particular tree," reports Pro Professor
fessor Professor Pire, "stands 4,500 feet above
the sea and is surrounded by a forest
of firs, which It exceeds in height by
30 to 40 feet.
The trunfc of this tree is ten me meters,
ters, meters, or a little more than thirty feet,
in circumference at the base. At about
a yard from the ground it puts out,
on the south side, seven offshoots,
which have grown Into trunks as strong
and vigorous as those of the other
trees In the forest. Bent and gnarled
at the bottom, these side-trunks soon
straighten themselves np and rise per-
pendlcularly and parallel to the main
stem.
"Another most curious fact Is that
the' two largest side-trunks are con connected

formed by an anastomosing of
branches, which, common enough
among the anglo-sperms, is extremely
rare among conifers."
Nuts and Digestion.
' The reason nuts are thought Indiges Indigestible
tible Indigestible by some Is because of the thin
skin surrounding each kernel, notes a
medical authority. This can easily be
blanched off by pouring boiling water
on the nut, and allowing It to stand
for a few moments. Almonds should
never bo. eaten with the red, tough
skin on the nut meat. When boiling
water Is poured on the almond, this
skin becomes as tough as leather. The
best way to use njits for children is to
grind the nut meats or pound them,
for which purpose the nut-butter knife
in the meat grinder will be found the
right tooL A good nut cracker with
strong spring makes nut-cracking
easy, and is preferable to buying the
ready-picked meats on the market.
Folly of Ridicule.
A moment of Indulgence in ridicule
may create lifelong resentment, notes
a student.
The late Richard Mansfield Is said
to have nursed a grievance against
Henry Irving for years. The reason
was that Irving had momentarhy In Indulged

making sardonic remarks.

common weakness Few escape it al altogether.

kinds, on examination, will be found
to be associated with vanity. In ridi ridiculing
