lished an account of it in a recent
number of the Smithsonian Collec
tions. In the course of research work in
Siberia and Mongolia, Dr. Hrdlicka
came upon a large-number of natives,
mixed with the heterogenous races
of that region, who were evidently the
direct descendants of another and
more ancient race a stone-age race.
These people resemble so closely
the American Indian that, in some
cases, if dressed in the costume of
the latter, even a skilled anthropolog
ist would take them for true Indians!
Moreover, their customs, and mental
characteristics are exactly those with
which we are familiar among the
And so; after careful study of these
people, Dr. Hrdlicka has came to the
opinion that "there exist today over
large parts of Eastern Siberia, and in
Mongolia, Tibet, and other regions in
that part of the world, numerous, re
mains of an ancient population which
was phvsical identical with, and in all
probability gave rise to the Ameri
This theory is not entirely new
among anthropologists as a theory,
pure and simple. But Dr. Hrdlicka is
the first scientist actually to go over
to Asia and to discover for himself
the meat in it. The result of his ex
pedition is, he says, proof positive
that the American Indian is Asiatic!
HEADACHE IS A VERY COMMON
The headache is the bugbear of
the girl at school!
There are several reasons for this
They are so simple and so easily
remedied that we wonder, when at

One of the commonest causes is
shortsightedness. An equally com

The bad air of schoolrooms is another.

There are two well-known types
of schoolgirl headache.
The first and most common one,
perhaps, is the indigestion headache.
Its chief causes are insufficient or
unsuitable foods, the candy and pas

this is plain, wholesome food at reg

The second type of headache is
the "sick" headache.
It gets this name from the fact that
it is accompanied with a constant
nausea or sickness at the stomach.
With the schoolgirl, this headache of
ten begins in the morning as soon as
she wakes from a heavy sleep. She
feels an intense pain in the temples,

The hands and feet get clammy. She
has an offensive breath and a coated
The remedy is a gentle emetic,
which will cause vomiting without
too much strain. Then give the
stomach a good rest and the head
ache will pass off naturally.
To sum it up, the schoolgirl with
the headache is very often the girl
whose diet is' not plain enough or
whose supply of exercise and fresh

We cannot expect the schoolgirl
to know this unless she is taught.
