Epidemics have occurred all over tho world and in those studied the death rate seems to be higher in rural communities than in densely populated areas. The disease is usually most prevalent in the warm, dry months but sporadic cases may occuV at any time. All classes of children seem to be equally affect ed and it would seem from this that sanitary ordinary precautions have no effect on the spread of the i disease.

The "healthy carrier" is an indivdual who carries the germ in his throat but who is immune from the disease, and this brings about n irrcat question relative to the of ficiency of strict isolation and pro- nhynctic measures directed only to wnrd persons in the acute stage of the disease and without taking into Account the problem of the "healthy carries."

That there was a divine side to His nature is proved by the fact that nowhere in the pages of history can be found a man who has lived up to ttye perfect standard set forth in this "Son of a Carpenter's" thirty-thre- e years of existence, whose teachings have revolu tionized the world. Jesus of Nazareth, who, m the language of W. C. P. Brecken ridge, one of the ablest editorial writers of his time, was "The one unchangeable, pregnant, vital truth of development, of prog ress,sof civilization, of happiness, of freedom, of charity. The prepetual presence, the ceaseless personal influence, the potent force of His continual association alone renders human history intelligible or makes possible the solution of any grave problem which man meets in his upward march to better life and more wholesome conditions." Jesus, as divine, has not yet been accepted by all peoples, but the fact that those who have accepted Him and have modeled their laws upon His teachings are advanced far beyond those who still clirig to other religions proves the worth of His example and the truth of His claim. Christmas, the anniversary of the birth of the Christ child, is the oneday whose celebration is observed in all civilized nations, amdng all independent people and in all learned tongues. Millions, on this day, will assemble in their accustomed houses of worship and with songs of praise and words of love, with glad countenances and uplifted hearts, render adoration to the lowly Jew who was born in a manger, died upon the cross, arose from the dead and proved his divinity by ascending in the flesh. Other millions will not attend worship but will render unconscious testimony to his wondrous power by kindly deeds one to the other, by bestowing tokens of love and friendship, by merry-makinby gladdening the hearts of little children, by relieving human suffering, by rendering material assistance to the poor, for in the language of the Saviour himself it is written: "Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these, my brethren, ye have done it unto me." i Our adoration of the Christ child must be exhalted to a feeling of fellowship with Christ's passion to save fully, abundantly all men.

Rush, AI. I).. Di. rector of the Department of Hygiene and Public Health, University of Ken- tucky. Infantile paralysis is an acute, communicable infection, characterized particularly by widespread lesions of the iutvous system. It has been recognized as a communicable disease since 1005 and the fact that it was probably spread through contact, droplet infection and through human carriers who themselves show no symptoms of the disease has been the past three weeks; one case in Broadhead; one in Scott county and one in Washington county, according to Dr. A. T. McCormack of the State Hoard of Health. Dr. J. S. Chambers, health officer of Fayette county, one case within the county and this caso occurred three weeks ago. Dr. C. H. Voorheis reports two cases in Lexington, one of which is now four weeks old. It is not improbable that mnrfcy obscure cases of meningitis may real-ly be cases of poliomyelitis, and it is possible too, that where we have diagnosed this number of cases in Kentucky that there may be many other cases in which the infection is so mild as to go unrecognized and known. undiagnosed.
