No other cereal food has as great a sur face for the action of the digestive fluids as Shredded Whole Wheat Biscuit. This, is true because the wheat is not crushed into dense masses but spun out into porous shreds. These shreds are crisp and compel thorough mastication, which strengthens the teeth and insures complete digestion.

The presence of j;reen vegetables in our diet is a necessity of life: the amount and kind to be eaten must be determined by the- individual. Generally th ir free use is to be recommended, especially in some dis eases of the skin, minor forms of scnirvy and for patients .suffering from grravel. Rhubarb, containing a considerable amount of oxalic acid, should, however, be avoided by thos so afflicted as oxalic acid in food may cause the production of oxalic cal culus. This acid may also produce acid dysjH'psia. The sour taste of the tomato is supposed to be due to the presence, in large amount, of oxalic acid. While it : xistei t in the tomato, the sour taste is said to be due to citric aeid.
