Some children, especially those.of an cmotibiial or excitable disposition, are naturally fidgety, but that does not constitute St. Vitus' dance, which is a definite malady of its own, and one always associated with rheuma tism.

Where theije is St," Vitus' dance in' a family, there, too, you' -will generally find rheumatism. . Fortu...
