It is not true that' one's character, habits or dispo sition can be determined by what one eats. It is true that all people should be educated in the thines that eive them a mind for excellent distinctions and fine discriminations in the choice of food that must be nourishing to the tissues and stimulating to the brain and heart, also providing strength for tendons, bone and mus cle. Food that is of a nature that assures easy digestion and assimila tion upon which perfect metabolism depends. The vastness of human ignorance is emphasized very pertinently on the subject of food and its uses. Many people should match their appetites with their temperaments. A food that in no instance should be eaten by people who arc sick may, on the other hand, be improper for a great many who are welL Health is an evidence of bodily re sistances to disease. .Our bodies are so constituted that we readily absorb the unfit poisons, generate gases and fermentations that wreck the physical foundation which conduces to illness, the result of ruthless violation of Na- rture's laws. Ignorance is always to be found the cause, but even the rigors of death can not be excused because some person tried to digest or as similate unfit articles of food. All foods are energy and heat pro ducers, but the proteins also fulfill an important part, in the bnilding up and replacement of bodily structures. It always will be found that even the ignorance of a king who may suf fer with the gout and the bootblack who suffers from diabetes are put in the -same.Jass-pf violators of great Nature's,' laws. The stomach should always be given sensible if not sden-. tific consideration by those who un fortunately live merely to eat, instead of eating merely to live. The ignorant person demands a full stomach! without any nice distinctions or knowledge of what forces are stimulated or what organs are de pressed. The educated person uses his meat, .eggs, fish, cheese, rice, ap ples or nuts just as he would use a f m ... . . - suupic .rate oi aninmenc to worlc a problem. He studies the essential elephants nutritive powers of each article of the food he would use for its nutritive qualities. .As long as people are ignorant of the nutritive qualities of food and heedless of the harm done by much of what constitutes the provision for tissue building there will be weak, frail, scrawny, glandular unfortunates with bent bodies and twisted legs, the very expression of Nature violated emphasized in these numberless un fortunates among the poor and' im provident. Something should be done by the movies, the churches and other civic institutions to give the public the needed instruction on food and diges tion. We are to regard the stomach and its purposes from the analytical stand point and ever foster the principles of civilized humanity in our manners, customs, conduct and cfiaracter. The stomach and -alimentary tract should merit just consideration in our choos ing the victuals that are to give us not only nourishment and strength for a vigorous and active healthy body but to maintain us against the encroachments of old age and the ill nesses of senility and decrepitude. MR. WILLIAM F. HARRAH RE SIGNS AS SERGEANT-AT-ARMS OF CITY COUNCIL He Has Been Selected as General Secretary of All the Council Committees At the last regular meeting of the City Council. Mr. William F. Harrah, who succeeded the late William E. Brown in 1916 as Sergeant-at-Arms of the City Council, who started on west at that time, never to return to this earth again, resigned his position which he had faithfully filled to the entire satisfaction of all the city fath ers, at the present time 'and during the past. Mr. Harrah has been for a long time one of the most popular men in the City Hall. He always greets all comers with a broad pleasant smile land with a clad extended hand: and whenever any of the city fathers would get to arguing strong and loud and. felt like going to the mat with each other, Sergeant-at-Arms Har rah always succeeded in pouring plenty of his smooth oil on the trou bled waters, and he has always been able to quiet the city fathers down without laying his strong arm of au thority upon them. When it became known in the Gty Council that Mr. Harrah had been promoted fo be general secretary in charge of all the committees of the City Council, Alderman John Pow ers, the dean or the venerable father of that body, arose and moved that a rising vote of thanks be extended to Mr. Harrah "for six years of in defatigable service in the Council's behalf, and in an instant every al derman was on his feet, manv of them calling for a speech from Mr. Harrah, but he ducked out and could pot be found. Mr. Thomas J. Courtney, who has tor some time past been ably serving as nrst assistant Sergeant-at-Arms, was selected to succeed Mr. Harrah, and Mr. Courtney, with his ever ready smile, is as smooth as the smoothest and stands high in the es timation of all the dry fathers and all the T)ig politicians that frequent the Gty Hall and 'the Council Com mittee rooms and it goes without say ing that MV. Courtney will prove; himself to be the right man in the right place. Littfc Rock, Ark. A new world has opened up for "Uncle David" Shaw of Hamburg, Ashley county. For 87 years Uncle David's knowl edge has been limited to such infor mation as he could acquire through personal contact with men and af fairs. But now in a hand shaky with age and unformed through experience but still legible, Uncle David writes, "I can read and write my name." Last year Uncle David was num bered among the state's 100,000 illiter ates. Now through the efforts of County Superintendent Fred McCuis tion the teachers of Ashley county and the Forward Educational Move ment, illiteracy has been lowered to the extent of Uncle David at least E. B. Tucker, assistant director in charge of the Forward Educational Movement, said that Uncle David's case illustrates ideally the ambition of the Forward Education Movement among the race and of other state agencies for th'e eradication of illiter acy. It illustrates the direct and prac tical value of "opportunity schools." These schools are institutions oper ated by the regular teaching staffs after school hours for the benefit of adult illiterates and in Ashley county, the school Uncle David is attending has 33 other students regularly on the roll. Uncle David's age is more or less a matter of guesswork as he does not know himself the year in which he was born, but he is conservatively csumaiea la dc . tie was born a slave on an Alabama plantation, but has lived in his present home for 40 years, and will continue in school, he says, until he is a "scholar." i 1922.
