Secured Among Fargo and Payue»vllle, 0.. College Girls by Government Experts. The food of the American girl has fur nished the lates; subject of inquiry by the gyvernment dietary experts, who, as the re sult of a scientific investigation, avers that she has an inordinate appetite for pastry und sweets; that the desire is quelled to some extent by a plentiful allowance of fresh fruit, and that, while she shows a tendency to large indulgence in butter, this weakness ought to be encouraged rather than repressed. Butter, being a form of fat easily digested, is good for girls. One fact definitely ascertained is that, for a given amount of bodily activity, a woman requires just about four-flfths as much food as a man. When she is at moderate work, her feed would furnish h&r every day with three aud one-half ounces of stuff to make muscle and blood, and enough fuel (for running the physical machine) to represent 2,800 "ca lorics.' A caloric is the amount of heat re quired to raise the temperature of one cen timeter of water one degree, and the fuel ma terials are chiefly starch, sugar and fat. A Notable Experiment. The most notable experiment made by the experts was at Lake Erie college, in Ohio, which is an advanced school for young wom en. It has a faculty composed of women, who board, together with the students, at commons. To avoid disturbance of the ordi nary routine, the girls were not tolS about the dietary trial, which was conducted with out their knowledge. The aim was to fur nish an appetizing table, with plenty of nu tritious food, at a cost not exceeding 25 cents for each person. Everything edible was weighed before and after meals, and samples of the various articles eaten were analyzed, to find out how much fuel stuff, muscle-forming material, etc., they contained to the pound. One thing the girls would have, and that was fresh fruit for breakfast. It was ex pensive, and the management opposed the indulgence for awhile, partly because fruits are not highly nutritious. But the medical value of fruits as an element of diet could not be denied, and, furthermore, it -was as certained that the eating of them lessened to some extent the craving for candy, which with many, if not most, young women, seems to be chronic. Perhaps it is the acid in the fruit that does it. Anyway, the faculty was obliged to yield, and thenceforth 15 per cent of the table money went for peaches, cherries and other luxuries of the sort. They Ate More. It was noticed that many of the girls ate more of the regular breakfast when they had fruit than they did when no fruit was served. Another thing observed was that the stu dents did not care for beans or peas. They were natives of the middle west—a region in which such legumes are raised to a compara tively small extent. Now, this was an impor tant matter, inasmuch as beans and peas are extraordinarily rich in "protein I"—the stuff that makes blood and muscle. If the college had been located in Massachusetts, baked beana would have run up the "pro tein" end of the dietary to a high point. At the Lake Erie institution, in the absence of peas and beans, the bulk of the "protein" had to come from the flesh of animals, and so it is not surprising tho learn that one-third of the table money was spent for meats and fish. It has often been alleged that women eat less meat than men do, but this experi ment did not bear out that theory, the pro portion being about the same as that con sumed by the average of ten clubs of male students observed in similar fashion. Con sumption of butter ran high, but, as already said, it is a very wholesome kind of fat, though expensive, and a liberal allowance of it Is to be recommended because school girls are apt to eat less fat in other forms than would be good for them. The experts made a study of a similar kind in a college boarding-house at Fargo, N\ D., the women under observation being eleven in number, all but two of them under 20 years of age. In weight they ranged from 100 to 145 pounds, the average being 126 pounds. They represented, as regards birthplace, widely different regions, three having been born in Norway, two in Ontario, two in Kansas, and one each in lowa, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Vermont. On the whole, however, they were considered a fairly typicsil group of girls for that part of the country. Remarkably Economical. These young women were remarkably eco nomical, the amount paid for food being a little less than 14 cents a day for each of them. Meat was not stinted, constituting 15 per cent of the edibles, and here again ap* peared that fatal feminine weakness for sweets, sugar being actually 12*4 per cent of the total weight of provender consumed. How ever, sugar is flrst-class fuel for the body machine, and the North Dakota girls certainly had the appearance of being well nourished. They ate surprising quantities of dried fruits, by the way. "Protein" was somewhat defi cient in their ease—only about two-thirds as much in quantity as it ought to have been— but it is known that, to a certain extent, fuel stuff, with which they were oversupplied, will take the place of the muscle-forming mate rial. Each of these girls obtained every day (on an average) 1.1 ounces of protein from the an imal food she ate and one and one-sixth, ounces of that muscle-forming substance In addition from her vegetable diet. She got three and one-third ounces of fat from the animal food and about one-sixth of an ounce from the vegetable food. Prom the latter she derived nearly twelve and three-fourths ounces of starch and sugar, which, with the fat, go for fuel. The fuel energy that came Tbe Changeling Child. The Scientific Explanation of the Change Formerly At tributed to the Fairies. In folk lore stories there is frequent mention of changelings — children who were changed by fairy influence. Some loving wife and proud husband found their child weak of body, and some times weak of mind. It grew up to be fretful, sullen and perhaps spiteful. It seemed impossible that love could bring such a child into the world. So the child was called a fairy change ling, a child substituted by the fames for one whom in their envy for its lovli ness they had carried away. We hear no more of fairy stories. Stern science says that healthy and lovely children must have healthy par ents, and that when the mother in her days of waiting and anticipation is _ ■ -"■" -■*< ....... -. ■.>^»c.fli. . nervous, anxious, sleepless and gener ally miserable, her child will be weak and fretful. How reasonable this is. The child can have no strength which the mother does not give it, and how can the weak mother, who has not enough strength for herself have anything to spare for her babe? THE FAIRY GOD-MOTHER is a very pretty invention. But the real fairy god-mother is the natural mother of the child. It is she who must endow her child with health from which springs all other endowments desirable for humanity. The way to have healthy children is to be healthy. But how to be healthy is the vexing question for women. Is the mother to blame because she is nerv ous, because her appetite fails and her strength wanes, because she is sleepless and despondent ? One cannot blame the woman whose only failing is that she does not know how to change her condition. Yet a woman's health is practically in her own control. If she is weak she can be made strong. If she is sick she can be made well. The experience of other women shows that the rose of mother hood can be stripped of its thorns by the use of Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription. "When I wrote to you in March, ask ing advice as to what to do for myself," says Mrs. Ella Reynolds, of Guffie, McLean Co., Ky. "I was expecting the baby's coming in June, and was sick all of the time. Had been sick for several months. Could not get anything to stay on my stomach, not even water. Had mishaps twice in six months, and threat ening all the time now. Had female weakness for several years. My hips, j back and lower bowels hurt me all the I time. Had numbness from my hips from the animal food was 1,025 calories, and the fuel energy from the vegetable food 1,636 calories—a total of 2,660 calories. Amount of Food Xeeded. These facts give an interesting notion of what is required to keep a fairly active wo man agoing—the amount of fuel needed to run her body machine, and the quantity of muscle and blood-forming stuff used up In repairs. Of course, if she takes little exercise and does no muscular work worth mention ing, she will get along very well on a lighter diet. On the other hand, if she is a washer woman or engaged in any other arduous oc cupation, her demand for "protein" and fuel materials will rise proportionately. Speaking of muscular work for the gentler sex, a serious investigation of the athletic girl has been made recently in England, re sulting in conclusions most unfavorable to the modern "muscle cult" for women.

P4UL 11 down. Had several hard cramping spells, and was ttot able to da any ■work at all. I received your answer in a few days, telling me to take Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription. I took three bottles, and before I had taken it a week I was better, and before I had taken it a month I was able to help do my work. On the 27th of May my baby came, and I was only sick three hours, and had an easy time. The doctor said I got along nicely. "We praise Dr. Pierces medicine for it has cured me. lam better now than I have been for thirteen years. I hope all how are afflicted will do as I have done and be cured." Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription is a perfect medicine for women. It estab lishes regularity, dries the drains which weaken women, heals inflammation and cures female weakness. It is the best preparative for maternity, strengthening the nerves, encouraging the appetite and inducing refreshing sleep. It gives the mother strength to give her child and make the baby's advent practically pain less. THE TEST OF WOMAN'S HEALTH is strength. A well woman will be a strong woman. She will not be "just dragging around" with throbbing head, aching back and constant weariness. No woman can be strong who is troubled by disease of the delicate female organism. The proof of the curative power of Doctor Pierces Favorite Prescription may be all summed up in the phrase "It makes weak women strong, sick women well." "During my two years of married life I have not had good health," writes Mrs. Daisy Studdard, of 608 So. Esplanade Aye., Leavenworth, Kans. "I was all run-down, and my husband got me to write to Dr. Pierce and explain my case to him and see if he could do me any good. So I wrote, and, thank the Lord, I got an early reply, telling me what the trouble was. I commenced taking Dr. Pierces Favorite Prescription, and also the ' Pleasan^ Pellets,' and now can say that I feel like a new woman, and can say also that we have a big baby four months old. When the baby came it was just wonderful how I got along and now I do all my work and do not feel tired out like I used to. I have taken eight bottles of the 'Favorite Prescrip tion.' It makes oae feel well and strong." Women who are troubled with chronic diseases are invited to consult Dr. Pierce, by letter, free. All letters are pri vately read and privately answered, and womanly confidences are guarded by the same strict professional privacy ob served in personal consultations. Ad dress Dr. R. V.
