"Clever little fellow, that son

There was no place lert to search ;

thing shining down among the
leaves. It was a tiny eye. I
knew, because it winked at me.
I watched it a second, and ever so

another bright eye came into
view. Then I made out a soft
fuzzy head. There Is not much
of your baby's body that shows,
though. He is too flat upon the

which I tripped, is another baby.
I know It because there another

(I am not in private practice in
any way.) You really should go to
a skin specialist and get a diagno
sis and correct treatment.
From the chroniclty of your

of the patches, it may be possible
that it is psoriasis. While psori

on to other parts of the body. It
rarely goes on the face, for it
does not eeem to occur on the ex
posed surfaces. I'll tell you a lit
tle about the disease.
Definition: Psoriasis is a dis
ease of the skin, characterized by
an eruption of round or oval,
bright-red, itchy patches, covered
with more or less 6ilvery white,
thick, adherent scales; by occur
ring especially on the extensor
surfaces of the elbows, knees and
extremities and upon the scalp;
by running a chronic course mark
ed by remissions and relapses.
It is not known what causes this
disease. Some authorities believe
it is due to some germ or fungus;
others believe it is a disease of the
nerves controlling the skin blood
vessels. Stellwagon points out that
Fhcumatic and gouty tendencies
and feeble states of health are pre
disposing causes, and he also
points out that digestive and nu
tritional disturbances certainly do
caufce recurrences In those suffer
ing with the disease, and may be
the cause. Excess starches and su
gars seem to be contributory

As the disease seldom occurs
on parts that are exposed to the
sunlight, one of the effective
treatments now is with the ultra
violet ray machines, which gives
off the concentrated sunlight.
The textbooks list many sub
stances that-are used on the tkin
to remove the scales. One of them
is salicyclic ointment (5 to 10 per
cent in vaseline), or some other
simple treatment. We have had
some report " from our readers
who have tried this salicyclic oint-

the ecatee effectively.
