The especial province of the mother is the prevention &#111&#102 disease, not its cure. When disease attacks &#116&#104&#101 child, the mother has then a part to &#112&#101&#114&#102&#111&#114&#109, which it is especially important during the epochs &#111&#102 infancy &#97&#110&#100 childhood should be done well. I &#114&#101&#102&#101&#114 to those duties which constitute &#116&#104&#101 maternal &#112&#97&#114&#116 of &#116&#104&#101 &#109&#97&#110&#97&#103&#101&#109&#101&#110&#116 of &#100&#105&#115&#101&#97&#115&#101.

Medical treatment, for its successful &#105&#115&#115&#117&#101, is greatly &#100&#101&#112&#101&#110&#100&#101&#110&#116 upon a &#99&#97&#114&#101&#102&#117&#108, pains-taking, &#97&#110&#100 judicious &#109&#97&#116&#101&#114&#110&#97&#108 &#115&#117&#112&#101&#114&#105&#110&#116&#101&#110&#100&#101&#110&#99&#101. &#78&#111 medical treatment can avail at &#97&#110&#121 &#116&#105&#109&#101, if &#100&#105&#114&#101&#99&#116&#105&#111&#110&#115 &#98&#101 only partially carried out, &#111&#114 &#98&#101 negligently &#97&#116&#116&#101&#110&#100&#101&#100 to and will most assuredly &#102&#97&#105&#108 altogether, &#105&#102 &#99&#111&#117&#110&#116&#101&#114&#97&#99&#116&#101&#100 by &#116&#104&#101 &#101&#114&#114&#111&#110&#101&#111&#117&#115 prejudices &#111&#102 &#105&#103&#110&#111&#114&#97&#110&#116 attendants. &#66&#117&#116 to &#116&#104&#101 &#97&#102&#102&#101&#99&#116&#105&#111&#110&#115 of &#105&#110&#102&#97&#110&#99&#121 and &#99&#104&#105&#108&#100&#104&#111&#111&#100, this remark applies &#119&#105&#116&#104 &#103&#114&#101&#97&#116 &#102&#111&#114&#99&#101 &#115&#105&#110&#99&#101, at &#116&#104&#105&#115 period, &#100&#105&#115&#101&#97&#115&#101 is generally &#115&#111 sudden in its assaults, &#97&#110&#100 rapid &#105&#110 &#105&#116&#115 progress, &#116&#104&#97&#116 unless the measures &#112&#114&#101&#115&#99&#114&#105&#98&#101&#100 are rigidly &#97&#110&#100 &#112&#114&#111&#109&#112&#116&#108&#121 administered, &#116&#104&#101&#105&#114 &#101&#120&#104&#105&#98&#105&#116&#105&#111&#110 is &#115&#111&#111&#110 rendered altogether fruitless.

&#13&#10&#84&#104&#101 &#97&#109&#111&#117&#110&#116 of suffering, &#116&#111&#111, may be &#103&#114&#101&#97&#116&#108&#121 lessened by the thoughtful and discerning attentions of &#116&#104&#101 mother. The wants and necessities of the young &#99&#104&#105&#108&#100 must &#98&#101 anticipated the fretfulness produced by &#100&#105&#115&#101&#97&#115&#101, soothed by kind and affectionate persuasion and the possibility of the sick and sensitive child being &#101&#120&#112&#111&#115&#101&#100 &#116&#111 harsh &#97&#110&#100 &#117&#110&#103&#101&#110&#116&#108&#101 conduct, &#99&#97&#114&#101&#102&#117&#108&#108&#121 provided against.

Again, not &#111&#110&#108&#121 is a firm &#97&#110&#100 &#115&#116&#114&#105&#99&#116 compliance with medical directions &#105&#110 the &#97&#100&#109&#105&#110&#105&#115&#116&#114&#97&#116&#105&#111&#110 of remedies, &#111&#102 regimen, and general &#109&#101&#97&#115&#117&#114&#101&#115, necessary, but an unbiased, &#102&#97&#105&#116&#104&#102&#117&#108, &#97&#110&#100 &#102&#117&#108&#108 report of symptoms to the physician, when &#104&#101 visits his &#108&#105&#116&#116&#108&#101 patient, is &#111&#102 the first importance. &#65&#110 ignorant servant or &#110&#117&#114&#115&#101, &#117&#110&#108&#101&#115&#115 great caution &#98&#101 &#101&#120&#101&#114&#99&#105&#115&#101&#100 by &#116&#104&#101 medical attendant, may, &#98&#121 an unintentional &#98&#117&#116 &#101&#114&#114&#111&#110&#101&#111&#117&#115 report &#111&#102 symptoms, &#112&#114&#111&#100&#117&#99&#101 a very wrong impression &#117&#112&#111&#110 his mind, &#97&#115 to &#116&#104&#101 actual state of &#116&#104&#101 &#100&#105&#115&#101&#97&#115&#101. His judgment may, as a consequence, &#98&#101 &#98&#105&#97&#115&#101&#100 in a &#119&#114&#111&#110&#103 direction, and the result prove seriously injurious to the welldoing of &#116&#104&#101 patient. The &#109&#101&#100&#105&#99&#97&#108 man cannot sit hour after hour watching symptoms hence the great importance of their being faithfully reported. This &#99&#97&#110 alone &#98&#101 &#100&#111&#110&#101 by the mother, &#111&#114 some person equally competent.

There &#97&#114&#101 other &#119&#101&#105&#103&#104&#116&#121 considerations which &#109&#105&#103&#104&#116 be adduced here, proving how &#109&#117&#99&#104 &#100&#101&#112&#101&#110&#100&#115 &#117&#112&#111&#110 efficient &#109&#97&#116&#101&#114&#110&#97&#108 management &#105&#110 the &#116&#105&#109&#101 of sickness but &#116&#104&#101&#121 &#119&#105&#108&#108 be severally dwelt upon, when &#116&#104&#101 diseases with which they &#97&#114&#101 more &#112&#97&#114&#116&#105&#99&#117&#108&#97&#114&#108&#121 &#99&#111&#110&#110&#101&#99&#116&#101&#100 are spoken of.
