Elks Wll Begin Busy Season Dr. C. C. Gildersleeve Gave
. Hjalth Talk Before Norwich Grange Neopians Going
toField Day at the Golden
lattanooga '..
At thi meeting of Norwich grange,
No. 17a last " Wednesday evening in
Pythian hall. Dr. C. C. Gildersleeve
accepted an Invitation to give a medi
cal talk and entertained ami instructed
the members with a paper upon San
itation of the Bod). '
He sid in part:
The literature for the layman per
taining to personal hygeine la In a
great measure unsatisfactory and ir
responsible. Many of the so-called
health books ar of questionable au
thorship, often the compilation of a
layman, perhaps an amateur patholo
gist, an lnccurate physiologist, a
moralist of vague opinions, with, un
fortunately, a tendency to cater to
the prur'ent. Such books make hy
pochondriacs of their readers and if
they include advice as to self treat
ment they may do great harm. It is
the duty of physicians to correct any
morbid attitude of their clientele. We
should not have "every man his own
physician" as seems often the objiect
in lectures, periodicals, and books re
lating to health, rather give every man
fundamental knowledge that will en
able him to .understand and if neces
sary, formulate, the requisate rules for
health, and to , distinguish scientific
medicine from quackery. Stripped of
its superfluous technicalities, this
knowledge may and should be im
parted to even- one of average intelli
gence and education, and it is desir
able that more literature and personal
explanation in this direction should
come from the American Medical Pro
fession. The subject is much too im
portant to be left entirely in the hands
of lay teachers and writers.
Care of the Skin.
A healthful condition of "the skin
depends largely upon a judicious diet
ary systematic exercise, regular bath
ing and proper clothing. 1 will speak
at this time only upon the "subject of
bathing as dietary, exprcise and cloth
ing will come later. For practical
DUrPOSeS baths may be described as

degrees; tepid 80-90 degrees.

taken before breakfast and soon after

accustomed to it gradually. For those
advanced in years or any personwith
weakened blood vessels, cold baths
are not Indicated. If after a cold bath
the body is thoroughly rubbed with a
rough towel, a reaction follows and
the bather experiences a sensation of
warmth and general well 'being, cold
baths are all right for him, but con
tralndicated if this reaction does not
take place. Warm baths have an ex
Xhremely soothing effect on the ner
vous system and for this reason are
aken at night , before retiring. After .
pn unusual amount of physical labor,
when the muscles are sore and aching,
nothing is more welcome or soothing
han a warm bath. Never, when
tveary, take a cold bath at

should neyer be taken, except upon
the advice of a physician. A tepid
bath is generally employed for cleans
ing purposes, and -may be taken at
any time though preferably in the af
ternoon, or just before bed time and
should bf taken oftener than once a
year as did a patient we received in
the hospital. The proper time to
bathe j just before a meal or about
three" hours after. In order1 to digest
food the stomach needs an' abundant
supply of blood to form its necessary
juices and ferments, and if blood is
.diverted from the stomach to the sur
face of the body by means of a bathe,
the digestion will necessarily suffer.
People-" should not remain in the
water until their fingers and lips are
blue and teeth are chattering. Ten
to twenty minutes is long enough.
Convalescents and persons with or
ganic disease sould only bath in sea
water when under medical supervision.
Turkish. Russian and other baths are
not within the scope of their dis
cussion. Some people suffer from

erally due to an irritable skin or ner

such people the bath should be of

I have, often found that adults Insist
upon bathing and scrubbing children,
infants especially too much and
themselves too little. If I were to
build me a house and could not afford
both a bath room and a parlor, I'd
give up the parlor. The face should
be daily bathed with cold water as it
stimulates the blood vessels and im
proves the circulation. Using hot
water upon the face and then under
going exposure to cold air and wind
has a decided tendency to produce
chapping and roughening of the skin.
Therefore, young ladies, to keep the
chaps away, bathe face with cold, wa

The Hair.
The two principal causes which
bring -about a premature thinning of
the hair are deficient circulation of
the blood .in the scalp . arcl the con
stant . presence of danuruff. Daily
brushing of .the hair -and frequent
shampooing, "will keep the scalp free
from dandruff. Frequent brushing
and combing the hair increases the
growth of hair by stimulating the cir
culation, in the scalp and by remov
ing dandruff. If your hair is begin
ning to fall out prematurely it is well
t j begin shampooing once or twice a
week and gradually reduce to once
in three or four weeks. Use any .good
toilet soap for the shampoo. Tincture
of green soap thoroughly cleanse's the
scalp. If the scalp remains dry after
the stimulus of shampooing vaseline
or olive oil may be massaged into the
scalp. Derby and like hats tend to
produce baldness. Savages and some
not savages like Academy students
who go bareheaded do not suffer from
baldness. Keen the children's hair

hair does 'not increase the number of
hairs. Singeing the hair is an ab
surd idea as are all hair restorers
and most hair tonics.
Care of Nose and Throat. ,

nostrils must be open for the passage

scope of this paper does not allow me
to give you various diets, suffice It is
to say that our food should be
wholesome, plain and easily digested.
Mild is a good article of food but
should not be eaten or drank with the
regular meats. If you use canned
goods never eat or allow to be eaten

absolutely air tight. Never use

truth than poetry in' Fletcherism."
The breakfast and dinner should be
the heartiest meals of the day, gen
erally speaking, although when a per
son has a nervous stomach or ia the
subject of indigestion, it may be well
to wait Until the middle of the afternoon-
when the heartiest meal should
be taken slowly, composedly and
cheerfully. There should be a few
hours rest after supper before retir
ing. Persons with weakened arteries
should eat very light suppers. Chil
dren may eat between meals If they
eat something easily digested.
- A stalwart laborer requires and can
digest a larger -. meal, rich in fats and
starches than can a sedentary or in
dolent person whose- supply of food
should be small and digestible. If
tea, coffee, cocoa, or water are drank
at meal time they should be drank
before and after eating. ;
Many articles of diet that are con
sidered unwholesome are so usually
because - they are badly prepared. Too
much can not be said in favor of
scientific cooking. Potatoes properly
cooked are a staple form of diet
Green vegetables are palatable and
fairly nutritious. Never use decayed
or over-ripe vegetables. Fruit is us
ually used too largely by the Ameri
can' people, fruits help the digestive
organs. Fruit before breakfast is
golden at lunch it may well be used,
but should not be eaten between meals.
The harm in eating fruit may lie in
its excessive use or in eating that
which is unripe or unsound.

The action of the transportation
committee of the G. A. R. in selecting
the Southern Railway as the official
route will afford the veterans and
their friends an unusual opportunity
to observe the remarkable growth and

who will make the trip under these
auspicious conditions. Aside from the
scenic wonders to be seen, points of
historic interest are on every hand.
The city of Chattanooga itself affords
a splendid setting for ' the encamp

its envidonments is hallowed by the

Nevt Thursday night the members
of Niagara Engine company will go
to New York and participate in the big
parade of firemen on Friday in con
nection with the annual convention of
the fire chiefs of the United States
and the rest of the world. , The Ni
agaras .will be the feature of the vol
unteers section of the parade and will
demonstrate the evolution of fire ap
paratus from 1850 to date. Wearing
their white fire hats and blue shirts,
the Niagaras will march one hundred
strong drawing the identical hose
reel that was built for the Taylor hose
company of Philadelphia, and exhibit
ed in the Crystal palace exhibition,
'over fifty years ago and won the prize
for beauty and excellence of workman
iship. The reel has been in the pos
. session of the Niagaras over thirty
j years.
Following the hose reel will be the
j old auto-chemical and hose wagon,
I propelled .by steam, and ' which was
' the first motor-driven fire apparatus
to be used in active service in the
United States and which was built by
the La France Fire Engine company
in 1901. This old machine will be on
exhibition during the week at the
Grand Central palace, as well as in
the parade. Then will come a triple
action automobile apparatus, an exact
duplicate of the new machine recent
ly purchased, by the city for $9000 and
placed with the Niagaras to replace
the old machine. This modern fire
apparatus is loaned the Niagaras
for the parade by the American La
France company, as it was not deem
ed advisable to take the Niagara ma
chine from the city for even a day.
The Niagaras will be accompanied
by the Wheeler and Wilson band, of
Bridgeport. Each piece of fire appa
ratus will be properly placarded with
handsome blue silk banners with let
ters In gold. All in all the Niagaras
will make a creditable appearance in
the metropolis and ably represent the
city of Ney London in the big demon
stration. Charles B. Jennings, superintend
ent of the schools of New London, and
who has been so long connected with
the schools that his predecessor cannot
be readily named by the oldest inhabit
ant, has made his annual report to the
board of school visitors and through
them to the general public. It is a
lengthy document and deals with
schools from the Puritan days to date
and Just a few paragraphs are devoted
to the future. Mr. Jennings is of the
old school of teachers and is of opin
ion that there is altogether too much
in the curriculum of the present time
more than the average young mind
can master, and that the teaching of
the three R's, and that thoroughly
would be preferable to a general smat.
tering of other matters of, education.
By the three R's the veteran school
master does not mean Rum, Roman
ism and Rebellion, but Reading,
Writing and 'Rithmetic.'
The report is very interesting read
ing, as it is decidedly reminiscent,
contains most excellent quoted para
graphs, a really humorous poem, and
tells of the school work and the needs
of the department for the best plan of
'teaching the young idea how to shoot
for a good education. Few educators
have had longer experience in school
work than Mr. Jennings and he ought
to know just what is best to impart
in the way of beneficial knowledge to
the rising generation.
