PRENTICE MULFORO TELLS HOW
AND WHAT TO EAT.
Effects of Imagination oa the Health of
the Dlfestlvo Apparatus Foods "for
the Serves" Eat Wht Your Appetite
It is entertaining; to see how so many
people eat in Boston. Here, and for that
matter all over the east, a dish of oatmeal
Is deemed the necessary preparative and
foundation for a breakfast. Half the peo
ple don't really like the oatmeal. They
nllow It Mrf uuctorily, and as a sort of
medicine. It is supposed lo gie a great
deal of strength. After they have eaten
the oatmeal and forced it down their pro
testing stomachs forsakeof strength, they
turn to Rnd eat warm biscuit, sausages,
ham nnd other foods for the pleasure that
thereby maj lie given the palate.
This jiart of the world reeks with vari
ous kinds of "health foods" and people
who are trying to live on health foods.
A man starts a "health bread" and a
health liakery. He starts a little paper
or circular with it to prov e how unhealthy
are all other kinds of In end; how-, in fact,
the race is dying out from eating nil other
kinds of bread; how he has arisen, a sort
of bread sn ior, just in time to rescue all
mankind from dying of dysi'psia through
eating other breads; how other breads are
nil but poisonous, because the mill that
ground the grain Into flour knocked off of
each kernel of wheat a bit of substance
about half the size of an atom, which Is
the only jwrt of the wheat which can give
the real stingo, the ery essence of life,
vigor, morality, refinement, animation
and "git up nnd git" to the mortal Is sly,
and rhoir that's what's the matter with
everybody, because all oilier mills but his
grind this oft and out of the wheat, n fact
which he discovered only after jenrs of
dyspepsia and meditation on the subject.
This lustier does the whole business.
All other bread after that .looks like loaves)
of poison, disease and death to you. You
travel three miles out of your way to buy
a loaf of this life nnd health giving arti
cle, and pi home hugging it under your
arm and clinging to it as yanr only straw
and hope in life. You can't make a meal
without tills bread. If you do eat other
bread you nre so sure it wit! give jou lys-
isqisia or any other complaint you hanker
utter that It does give it to you, for you
know that you can think yourself Into
any complaint you put your thought on,
just as you can think yourself Into any

society that you Ox your mind perse

in Boston don't get any strength from our
meals at home. We are obliged to go to

nal thinking about its effect on you and
wouderiugor fearing tliat it will work the
wronif way and make ou feei disagree

you fear that bread won't agree." with von
it will be pretty certain not to do so. Of
course, In your prc.riil immature ami un
developed stato you have not yet arisen to
that degree of power whereby you can de

don't want to.devour them. Yonr palate
doesn't hanker after them. Therefore let
them alone. Don't order such things at
the restaurant or from your grocer.
Tiinx DOS'T EAT IT.
If yon gng at the sight of your regular
plate of oatmeal for breakfast don't eat it.
It dx-s yon no good when you do

imlate doesn't relish anil take hold of vig

him. Kat as a cow, a horse, a bird, a
squirrel, a rat eats that is, when you're
hungry. Kit what you enjoy and "enjoy
w hut jou eat and stop worrying over it
and it will do you good. " If you like
oys'crs and fried oystes at 11 o'clock at
night nnd that's the time of nil times
that you most relish them eat them :
that time nnd defy dyspepsia and kick out
of your mind all and every approach of
anxiety and foreboding over the matter.
lou put anxiety into your stomach vtheu
you think anxiety. Ifvoulike ale with

It Is a noteworthy fact that every year
witnesses same Improvement in this An
