There is no danger conneotcd with tho disease at alt as long as the patient is kept warm and suffers no relapse. In the case of many children it was accompanied by whooping-cough, that plague of childhood. One leading medical man cured many cases of whooping cough by hermetically closing the bedrooms and burning sulphur in the proportion of one ounce to tbe cubic yard of space. The children are then allowed to sleep in them. We have just arrrived at an end of out round of. gaities down hero.
