What is OCR?

This idea, perhaps, has arisen
because carniverous animals are
more 'ferocious than herbiverous,
but, this probably is not due so
much to the effect of what they
eabas it isto the method of ob
taining it. The ferocious animal
can. attack and destroy the ani
mals, on which it feeds, while the
life of the herbiverous animal is
peaceful, and non-combative. I
doubt very much whether a meat
diet tends to excite thcso-called
fighting, properties of the human
animal. t
k Inasmuch as the human ani
mal gets all of -his food -in the
same way 'the effort to "secure it
is peaceful. Very little human
food is now obtained directly, by
thei'hunter himself for his own
purpose.
. Hunting is no longer a food
getting profession, but merely a
recreation, and.the same may be
said of fishing. -The vast major
ity of people who eat meat and
fish, buyj these articles as they do
their wheat "and potatoes.
The feeding of athletes for su-jn-'eme
moments of exertion al
most explusively 'with meat is
probably a 'dietary error, as they
would be capable of still greater
exertions on a "diet cqmpo'sed
more- largely ofpotatoes.
' "From the general principles of
nutrition which have been an
nounced, namely, tlie undesirabil
ity of excessive feeding and the
desirability of so adjusting the
diet as to keep the body weightin
equilibrium, it is-doubtful if any
particular kind of food has any
particular relation to any profes
sion. Good, wholesome food in pro
per quantities of the same kind,
may be fed to the soldier, the
sailor, the farmer, merchant, lit
erary man, physician, minister,
diplomat, the street cleaner and,
the car driver with equal pro
priety. There is little scientific
basis for" the common opinion
that certain kinds of food influ
ence control particular traits of
character.

(In tomorrow's article Dr.
Wiley will tell what food really
is, and. what nourishing consti
tuents of foods are necessary to
the welfare of the body.)
' CHICAGO BRIEFS
George A. Papausky, the banker-magician,
convicted of using
the mails for improper purposes,
arid who posed as the reincarna
tion of Moses, was sentenced to
six months in the" bridewell by
Judge Landis today.
Latest invention with Univers-if
ity of Chicago co-eds is the "can
ned" kiss, like a. finger print, only
made with rouged lips on a white
card. Although a reward has
been offered, the inventor can not
be found.
The city has won the fight for
outer harbor. That's enough.
