HEAR OF HEALTH
Interesting: Talks at Y. M. C. A.
Banquet by Drs. Mueller
IS PROFITABLE OCCASION
John Kittilsen and Leo SteTens Are
Heard on Athletics and So
In the auditorium of the Y. M. C. A.
last night was held a banquet for the
working boys and intermediate classes
of the association gymnasium. More
than 75 members of these two classes
were present and enjoyed the supper
and the program which had been ar
ranged by C. EL Gilman, director of
physical training. An eight-piece or
chestra, under the leadership of John
Kaiser, furnished music during the sup
per hour. Mr. Gilman presided as toast
master of the program which was giv
en. The speakers were Drs. R. H. Dare
and A. N. Mueller, John KJttilsen and
The physicians subjects were along
lines of public and personal health, and
in the course of their remarks they
gave some interesting and valuable ad
vice to those who beard them.
Dr. Mueller was the first speaker of
the evening. His subject had to do
with "Public Health." He outlined
briefly the history of public health for
the last 50 years, and how in that com
paratively short time scientists had, by
means of the microscope, discovered
bacteria, microbes and other kinds of
germ life. It was found through" this
research that the greater part of dis
ease was caused through contagion
and that germs were transmitted fiom
one body to another and were carried
in dust, clothing, and In many other
ways. Sunshine and fresh air are
death to germs, and so the value of
fresh air and sunlight can not be over
estimated. Dr. Mueller explained the system
used by the city health department in
guarding against the carrying of con
tagious diseases from one person to an.
other, or from one household to anoth
er. Whenever there is a contagious dis
ease under treatment of a physician,
the health department is notified, and
if it is one of the four diseases which
is put into quarantine, no person with
the exception of the physician is allow
ed to enter and leave the home. The
superintendent of schools and the li
brarian are notified, and they take
proper precautions. Before quarantine
is lifted there is fumigation of the
house. The work which is being done
by the civil service health commission
ers of this country is responsible for
the absence of any plague in this coun
try. PERSONAL HEALTH.
"Personal Health" was the subject
of Dr. Dart's address. He told of the
many things which a person must
guard against in order to be healthy.
"Do not over-eat," said he, "for it is
more harmful to over-eat than to be
intemperate in anything else. Be like
the Japanese, who, when they find thei
appetite failing, decide that then is the
time to quit eating. Be moderate in
your exercise, for if you overdo in that
it is even more harmful than if you do
not exercise at all.
"If you bathe twice a week, you will
cot be bathing too much. It is impor
tant that the skin be kept in a clear
condition and this can only be accom
plished by bathing at least twice a i
week. The skin is a more important I
organ than most people realize, for It
is the radiator of the body. It gives off
heat and moisture and many impurities
are cast off in this way. If a little more
than a third of the skin of the body is
destroyed by fire or some other way,
death will be the result. So you can
understand what it means to have a
good, clear skin.
"It is necessary for a person to
drink water, for water is necessary to
chemical action in the body. It is
needless to say that it is important
that the water be pure. Do not drink
any alcohol. It will -not do you any
good, and it is not a health promoter.
Day after day alcohol is being used
less and less for medicinal purposes,
and Its value as a stimulant is very
small. Statistics show that men who
do not use alcohol in any way live
longer on the average than men who
do use it.
"I do not like to say much against
tobacco, for the most one can derive
from it is a little pleasure. A person
who does not smoke is certainly better
off without it. If you never acquire
the habit, you will not know what you
miss, but when once you have acquir
ed the habit, you will find if you try to
quit it that yon are a slave of tobacco "
ATHLETICS AND SOCIAL SIDE.
Mr. Klttilsen and Mr. Stevens spoke
briefly upon the athletic and social side
of the gymnasium class work. The an
nouncement of the meeting for next
Tuesday night, at which time the sub
ject of a new building will be discuss
j ed, was received enthusiastically by
J the boys. Mr. Gilman announced that
as soon as the Lenten season is paat
arrangements will be made for a min

take three or four years by ordinary methods of advertising-
This is the age of co- ocration, nnil the manufacturer correctly
