Published by arrangement with the Chicago
Core lex Flat Foot.
TJERE are some simple exercises for
XJL the cure of flat foot: Remove the
shoes and stockings, loosen the
breeches and underwear over the lower
legs. Stand on a two-Inch board with
the toes projecting over the edge. Flex
the toes as raucH as possible. Pull hard
with the flexor muscles located In the
sole of the foot. Extend the toes with-,
out strong muscular effort. Repeat for
five minutes. Gradually lengthen the
time given this exercise to 10 minutes.
After about two weeks add to the toe
flexing exercise a foot-inverting exer
cise. Roll both feet In until the weight
is carried on the outside edge of the
sole. This Is the position in which a
young Ira by holds its feet. Roll the
feet In Just as far as they will go, flex
the toes as much as they will bend and
pull bard on all the muscles which
cause the motions. Allow the foot to
roll back into the natural position
without pulling on it. Repeat this ex
ercise for 16 minutes.
When the muscles become stronger
these exercises can be continued for 30
minutes a day. During the period of
the cure the person must walk with his
toes turned in.
At Fort Ethen Allen Lieutenant Perry
treated 400 men suffering from flat foot
with these exercises. About 90 per cent
of tbem were cured and made able to
continue their training without discom
fort. Footprints show that the foot
arch had been restored.
I feel certain that exercises which
spread the toes and then bring them to
gether, if persisted in, would cure a
large percentage of the cases of bun-
Ions and ingrowing toenails.
Major Brewer says that 13 per cent of
the men examined by him were rejected
for flat foot. Even at that a large
number of the men who were passed
suffered with their feet when they be
gan to train. If clerks had Government
physicians to give them foot exercl.te
every day some of them would be more
patient with unreasoning customers.
Aching feet and petulant customers do
not make a peaceful combination.
Dr. Overton reports that his board re
jected about 25 per cent of the appli
cants appearing before them. One and
sixty-six one-hundredths of this 25 per
cent were rejected on account of flat

Whooping Cough Vaccine.
P. R. T. writes: "1. W.ill you kindly
advise if there is any antitoxin for
whooping cough?
"2. Can you give some general Infor
mation on the care and treatment of
the patient?
"3. What is the percentage of fatal
ity in this disease?"
1. There Is a vaccine which is quite effi
cient when used early in the course of the
2. Unless the vaccine is used early, the
treatment consists In keeping the bowels
regular, feeding the patient properly and
watching the ventilation of the sickroom.
None of the 1000 ordinary whooping cough
cures is worth using. The patient should
remain In bed or quietly in a well ventilated
room until the fever stage has passed. After
that he should have a little airing each
day. The disease Is highly oontagious at
first and but mildly so after the fever stage
haa passed. In consequence, health de
partments usually prescribe room isolation
for the onset and fever stages and Isola
tion on the lot for the next several weeks.
3. The fatality rate In babies under one
year of age Is about o per cent. .Among
older persons it is much less less Mhan 1
