Chicago, August 11, 1884.

The youngest on record—not the worm, but the patient having it. It is not that tænia is a rare bird, or the catching of it a matter requiring much skill, yet because of the "early youth" of the patient I give you the facts.

Who can give dates of a younger child passing tænia? Look up your records.
