To the Editor:
—In the discussion of Dr. Neff's article on "Recent Experiences in the Artificial Feeding of One Hundred Infants" (The Journal, Dec. 23, 1911, p. 2008), Dr. R. B. Tubbs, of Council Bluffs, Ia., says that lie "cannot see why it is any more legitimate for us to give condensed milk than it is to give proprietary medicines." I wish to ask Dr. Tubbs what he would advise using in place of condensed milk out here in the Nevada deserts, 05 miles from railroad and 00 miles from the nearest milk cow or goat. I have no startling results to record from its use, but the babies under my care are holding their own through careful attention to dilutions, time of feeding, etc.
