The following is the second paper

One would indeed be considered
foolish should he pay no attentio. to
the mechanism, movemetr and care
of a piece of machinery of great value
and of intricate and delicate con
struction which had been intrustel
to his care. Such A piece of machin
ery is the human body, the perfect
working of which depends upon the
harmonious action and care of its
several parts yet there is proBably
no one of our possessions of the
struure of which the ordinary per
son is more ignorant and to whiel
less attention and care is paid. This
ignorance of structure and physiolog
ical action of the body on the part of
the majority of people is due to the
fact that anatomy and physiology are.
not taught in our schools; and few
of us afterward, because-of the hurry
and bustle of life, have the time or
inclinition to acquire this knowledge.

The care of the body is called per
sonal hygiene, and the object of this
p;per is to attempt to set forth brief
ly some of the best means of develop
ing and niaintaining physical and
mental vigor. The body is made up
of various organs and tissues. The
.more-important of these will be taken
up in~ turn and suggestions made as
to their care.
Care of the Teeth.
The alimentary canal extends from
the mouth to the anus, and in all is
about twenty-seven to thii-ty feet in
length,. Each of the several.portions
of this canal has. its function to per- :
form and the proper performance of
function depends largely upon what
has occurred previously to the food. e
For instance, the objet of the teethd
is to properly masticate the food and ti
of the stomach to digest certain kinds
of food; it is obviously impossible s
for the stomach to properly perform
its function if the food is bolted be
fore having been ground up. Many tl
cases of chronie digestion result from b
improper mastication, due to faulty ~
dentition and inattention to the teeth. t]
The care of the teeth then, is im
portant, and this care. should be be- be
gun in infancy and early childhood. t
Deformities of the teeth and jaw in n
many cases is produced by the perni- t
cious habit of "thumb-sucking" in
children or the use of the "comfort- re

hygienists. ,A common cause of de- ,
formity is noticed in "mouth-breath- b

not only may the jaw become deform- te

attention to the necessity of the fre
quent use of the -tooth-brush, yet how h
often do we see this practice neglec
ted. The cause of decay in teeth is r
primarily bacterial. The only way to
prevent it is by the frequent use of g
th tooth-br~ush and powder which i
prevents the lodgement of these bac- in
teria. When decay occurs the soon- l'
