BOOTS FOR LITTLE FEET.

[By A FAMILY DOCTOR.] BOOTS FOR LITTLE FEET. No boots at all are better for the children than the worn-out pieces of leather tied round with string that some of them wear. On a wet day, the leather and stocking get saturated with water and the children sit in school all day with damp feet; but if they came through the wet with bare feet, their feet would be dry after they had been in school for a few minutes. It is a kind charity to provide warm boots for the chil- dren in cold and wet weather, but let me respectfully whisper in your ear that if you undertake this work you must inspect the boots every now and then; sometimes the poor have so much sympathy with the pawnbroker that they think he wants the boots more than the children. Boots are meant to wear, not to drink. And if you really are charitably inclined, will you order a few extra pints o £ milk from your milkman, have it warmed, and give it to the one or two children you are interested in, to drink "on the premises." If you give a can of milk for the children to carry home, you are never sure what becomes of it. I have known milk-cans smell of gin, but I expect it was all the fault of the oow.
