Warning to the Elderly.
?From Tli?? Tribune's Correspondent !
laondon, March ir?.-Americans whoha?.?-.
come to London recently have frequently
remarked upon the ntitnb?*r of men to be
seen on the street* of New Tork no?*.?
da?s earnestly engaged ?n conversation
with themselves, and they remark all??
npon the raplillly increasing number of
tlWN men. It is recognized that this
habit Is one which comes chiefly from *
frazzle?! out nervo?is s\>tem, <l'ie to the
indecent hurry of American buslmss life.
With thla conversational habit there Ih
i also llk"ly to come an Intense interest tn

sale of breakfast foods. For th? benellt
of thiise unfortunates who ?rir giv??n to
Srerrylng about diet and ?ltct systems. Pr
?"halmers Watson has written a little vol?
ume called "The Book of Met." In which
"The diet should be selected to agree
with the constitution rather than with
the stomach. A true food must be either a
tissue builder or a source of en?Tgy. Fat?,
ar?? the most Important fuel foods. Pro?
teins ?meat. flsh. eggs, etc.? are the tis?
sue builders. But a /ifllclenry of salts is
essential to health, and If salts are cut
out of the food death occurs In a few
Children Nsed Lime Sslts.
In dieting children, lime salts for the
honeaa ar? Indispensable. And It Is well
to remember that "the foods most rich in
Ume salts are milk, eggd. cereals (espe?
cially rlcei. vegetable? ?especially aspara?
gus and spinach), while meat, tlsh, pota?
toes and fruits are poor In these salts
?'hlhlren need more food relatively than
adults. The proper anvtunt for a boy of
fourteen to sixteen years Is four-fifths

Very useful Information is given con
????rning the nutritive properties of meat,
tish. game, etc., from which a few hints
may be cited :
If sf is best when got from an ox two
years of age
Veal Is much less nutritious than beef
and not so easily digested.
Mutton is generally considered to h?
more easy of ?llgestion than beef.
Leah greatlv exceeds mutton in it??
proportion of fat and is cerrespondlngl
I Tongue, tripe and sweetbreads are both
I nutritious and easily digested
! Hare, when young. Is very tender, and
a young, well fed chicken is the BlOSt
