The matter to which I call your attention, the baby’s eyes in the perambulator, is one epoch in the life of many children that seems absolutely to have been ignored. I say many children! The very poor are not luxuriating on wheels. They have a possible contact with mother earth, or with a pavement. Again they get the air on the hip of an older sister. Children born in the other extreme of worldly position are not so often in a baby cab.
In the maternity, the nursery and in the school, the young eyes have received intelligent attention with preventive suggestion and remedial treatment.
