-0:- ACT AT ONCE. Children often suffer from swelling of the knee without any apparent cause it is in many cases due to tuberculosis. The child complains of no pain and may walk about without a limp in some cases, on the other hand, pain is a more prominent symptom. There is no acute trouble, no redness or heat, but one night, as the mother is bath- ing the child, she notices that one knee larger than the other. In these circum- stances the little one should be taken to a surgeon at once the sooner the treatment is undertaken the more hopeful is the pro- spect of complete cure. Rest, good food, fresh air and sunshine are the essential means of improving the health, and for the local treatment to the knee a splint is used. You cannot do much yourself without the guidance of a surgeon, but I only want to impress upon you the importance of watch- ing and examining your children with a view to detecting any commencing disease or deformity. Many of you like to trust to luck—"other people's children have swollen knees, but I do not suppose mine ever will." You had better not adopt the same methods in your business. Do not omit to insure your house against fire in the hope that you will never have a fire. No, examine your children, and run with them to a surgeon in case of the discovery of any tumour or irre- gularity.
