The paralysis first shows itself bv a weakness in the legs the child may be com- pletely paralysed and unable to move the legs, but in the milder cases the legs may be only weak. If there is the smallest sus- picion of weakness in the legs, the child should be put in bed and kept there until you can get proper advice from a doctor. The affection of the sight realb; a paralysis of one of the little muscles in the eve: th? chijd js unable to see to read, and complains of (telling of the eyes. Again, in this case, the child should be forbidden to read or sew or do close work of any kind, and advice should be immediately sought.
