10 EVERYBODY MAGAZINE FOR Secrets of Health What Baby Should Eat; How to Prepare His Food By Dr. LEONARD KEENE HIRSHBERG A B.M .M. D (Johns Hopkins'). TOWARD Ilie ena 01 inr iiri year a numan muiul begins to be the most interesting thing in the world. Heretofore it has llcd a life of colorless, uncon- prions, vegetative growth, and, though its mother, perhaps, has discerned a meaning and a portent in Its everv action, its signs as such have sadly lacked motive and coherence. But now it3 intelligence. Is dawning, and the mysterious something that we call personality is un folding It begins to differ from other babies of Its age in a thousand surprising and delightful ways, it acquires habits, appetites, little vanities, likes and dislikes, ana what mav be called a customary attitude of mind. Ana these things appear, one after another, with truly daz zling rapidlt. Kcry -week sees noticeable progress JBivery aav nas us percepuuie cnange. DIi HIRSHBERQ Mind and body join In the metamorphosis. Muscular " and organic activity increases, and a multitude of ideas nebulous, maybe, but still vastly engaging begin to throng the child's brain. It begins to take note of the world about it; to recognize differences; to observe cause and ef fect, to put fact and fact together. And, with all this awakening from with in, there comes a need of changes without. The First Year. A every woman knows, the time for weaning commonly brings perils for the infant. That this belief is universal is shown by the fact that popular loro has given to it the dignity of an immutable law of nature. As a matter of fact there is no reason whatever why wean ing should bring serious consequences to either mother or child, for it is as thor oughly normal an incident of life as birth or teething. In practically all cases the disasters of this period are duo to an inaccurate reading of the baby's needs. Until it is well on toward its second birthday, the principal food of every child should be milk, but this milk needs, re-enforcement. Let one meal be of modified cow's milk aolne, and the next of milk and toast, with milk next, and then a bit of mashed potato, and so on. In this connection, and before proceed ing to a consideration of the diet later on. It may be well to point out that the dietary needs of every child arc deter mined more by Its weight than by its ege. An average child, weighing about eight pounds at birth, should weigh about seventeen pounds at the age of nine months, when it fs ready to be weaned. If it weighs less than this It is well to seek medical advice before making changes in its food. The same factor determines the amount of food required by tho child each day. A normal baby of twelve months, weighing twenty-one pounds, will need five feedings of modified cou's milk of eight ounces each and at inter vals of four hours in addition to the alternate meals of toast, rice, and so on But if the child welphs only sixteen or seventeen pounds, six or seven ounces of milk will be sufficient. By the same token. If it weighs more than twenty one pounds it may well take a bit more than eight ounces. The Second Year. One the milk of early infancy has been re-enforced by the starchy foods, and the child has passed the Rubicon in safety, it is then in order to reduce the former, by slow stages, to second place. Ah aoon as possible teach the child to drink from a cup, and give it its dally milk in that waj Reduce its allowance f milk to four eight-ounce rations a day, and at the same time add a meal of beef juice or mutton Juice with a soft boiled or poached egg By the time the child is a year and a half old broiled and scraped steak may be substituted for the broths fONSIDER THE CHILD'S LIKES n prepare ! sear a round steak on t outside only over a brik fire arrl up" into a "m pu'p with a kn:fe ""ike two tahlerpnnnfuls of thi and x It the r0 jghl' with an eq lal amoun' utale hread Tumhs Then let the h,-b fat It with a spoon Toward the end "f inf seeoni year ' r 'ceding of the child should pro - ess t! riegreep t"?ar! three meals a ri Beg'n h omitting the meal of k taken i ist before bedtime and p ad 'a'lv 'Vnw the Importance of fdelai dinner R- tl-i tir-'e the w 1' begin to show dietet r hke t s iken and within reason these !-" -1 if acceeded f for a ehild like r pnwn pefon thrives best upon e) hes i reilhe '.' hrp-skfast cons st of a cereal with r n'v rf T,l!k but little sugar, and a r g.e -i:r e'ther soft boiled or poach ed Ac e rr on knows the Ame-ban ket ' rr, -r!(, an Infinite arra of pal ii ii f-erea's --nd the giest milo'ity rr titr 1 irk"v eno-igh a'e excellent ' 1 he?' -ovever to boil eer cereal f se era! hours no matter what tt '? ei .si and this of co'irse max- be ("!!' most eonveniently the da before p the mori mg a!' that is neresary ' e warm 1le rereal en cr and add hot 'V r'u'd "wo and a half or three ir eV jbnoM he nien a single rup- o' t 'e-eal n likes beef The Third Year.

As soon as the threc-meal-a-day schedule has been established the child should be lefused all solid food between meals, but it is a good custom through out childhood and necessary until the seventh year to give a generous cupful of milk in the middle of the morning, and another in the middle of the afternoon. If the child is hungry, let It drink two cupfuls, and, on tho other hand, do not press it to drink if It is not so disposed, as the appetites of children vary as much as those of adults. In conclusion, remember this. That until it is fourteen, a child Is not ca able of dealing with the miscellaneous mass which makes up the civilized bill of fare. If it must eat at the family table, see that Its share of tho dishes Is rigorously limited. Discourage the use of coffee, chocolate and tea, and give it little, if any, pork In any form. Hot rolls, waffles, pancakes and other things of that sort are always danger ous. In the matter of candles and other sweets exercise a stern censorship. If it were possible It would be well for the children of the land to grow up In Ignor ance of these delights. Nevertheless, everv- mother may do much to discour age the ancient custom br making candy as a reward for diligence and good order. A child, however, needs some sugar, and should have a little on Its food. (Copyright. 1914. Newspaper Feature Service ) Answers to Health Questions II. H A. What's good for bunions?

A4vU Flirting With the "Love-Apple" Br MRS. CHRISTINE FREDERICK. Author of "The New IIousekfpinE." FEW of us new remember the time when tho tomato was considered a poisonous fruit. Since it is a member of tho family of the deadly nightshade. It3 fruit wn3 considered deadly also and no one of a century ago was braxe enough to eat "love-apples," as tomatoes were then called. But today science has shown us how healthful the universal tomato plint Is. in fall especially aro wc offered the hotn of Us plenteous fruit. Like most other xcgctables which contain no starch, the tomato lo about 31 per cent water, as seen by the following figures: TOMATO: Protein 9 per cent Kat 4 per cent Carbohydrate 3.3 per cent Mineral matter 6 per cent Water 91.3 per cent ' But It is thl3 large amount of water and the small but Important per cent of mineral matter which makes tho tomato so valuable In our diet.

What can be more delicious than a perfectly ripe tomato eaten fresh frorr. the vine, with a pinch of salt? It 1 par excellence a fruit to be eaten raw. becai.se cooking it gives It a coarser flavor and nrlngs out n somewhat bitter taste in its seeds, besides altcrinic the cooling, refresh ing pulp. Therefore, the fomito Is king of salad foods, and Indeed, the eerdict of scx-cral chefs Is that no salad Is worthy of tho name which dos not Inclndo tomato or tomato flavor. Owing also to Us most attractive color. It Is probably our most decora tive salad food, and the clever cook can .manipulate Its smooth, red sphere Into many petal shapes, rings, baskets, and other forms. Since tho tomato is so deficient In starch and fat. It should be eaten with both of these food forms In or der to bring about a more balanced combination. Therefore, dletetically. It fs perfectly right to combine to matoes with a rich oil mayonnaise, or to fry them in fat. or dress them with cream gravy, and cat with them plenty of bread. With the fat and starch groups brought up In this wav. tomatoes can form a complete meal Who said breakfast was a monotonous repetition of baled hay or grapo-grit? Trv fried tomatoes on toist with a rich, cream gravy, and surprise yourself. Or. if you are complaining hbout the high cost of meat, buv only a half pound of ham, chop It thoroughly, add It to bread crumbs and seasoning, and with It stuff six firm tomatoes, bastlnc them with butter and their own juice. In a moderate o-en for half nn hour. Ah. a dish fit for you or the gods, and a summer supper dish zestful, piquant, and satisfying. If the housewife Is not so luckv as to hax'e a "tomato-ry" of her own. it Is most economical to buy in largo quantities, partly ripe, and allow them to blush to perfection on your own cellar shelves. Even green to matoes hax-e undreamed-of possibili ties, and in succulent rings can be breaded and prepared like eg plant, making another satisfying and un usual summer supper f?I'e your heart to the "love-apple." and It will repax- you with a lower body temper nture. refreshment, and prex-ontlon of polsonoui acids In your blood.

OUR quarrel merely served to ex aggerate Mary's notions of housewifely duty, which is. In cidentally, a very different thing from wifely duty. Housewifely duty is. of course, to sec that tho house Is dust less and immaculate at any expense, disregarding one's husband entirely. Wifely duty Is seeing that one's hus band Is quite comfortable at any ex pense, if the house does suffer to the extent of a crushed cushion or so and some slight suggestion of tobacco ashes where they ought not to be. I've developed a positive and contrary passion for disorder lately. I want to leave things about: I want to strew papers on the dining room table: I Ions Insanely to upset tho cushions, and I have the wildest desires to scoff at every decent principle of neatness. And I was the very neatest of boysr It's chiefly. I think, because I detest sudden and per sistent manias of any sort, and Mary's new penchant for neatness at any co3t Is nothing short of absolute and uncon trollable mania. Our quarrels have had one startliruj result. Last night I spilled considerable ashes on a little mahogany table, and In stantly I glanced at Mary with a feel of Intense guilt, for all I was pre pared to bo antagonistic and even argu mentative If she said anything. She didn't. She merely stared straight ahead. I was pretty sure she had fur tively witnessed my ash catastrophe, s.o I spoke. "I'm sorry, dear." I conceded. "What for?" Inquired Mary elabor ately. "Whyi" I finished lamely. "I did spill ashes again." Here my paper fluttered to the floor and lay sprawling there In tantalizing disorder. I hurriedly gath ered It up. "It's all right, Peter." exclaimed Mary with the air of a martyr. "Leave it there by all means. I don't mind In the least." I stared. "Of course you mind." I stammered "You hate things lying around in dis order you say so." "I know." said Mary, "but we've taken it up in our Domestic Club, and now I know just what to do " "Taken what up In the Domestic Club?" I demanded aghast. "The way you leave ashes and papers around." said Mary. "Great heavens!" I burst forth, "do you women actually dangle vour hus bands' petty faults before a club court of Inquiry." "I don't see anything so very terrible In that." defended Marv. "All men have some conspicuous faults at home, and we're merely making a study of how to remedy those faults for the good of everybody. It's really a very good Idea." Imagine a crowd of men meeting' to discuss the faults of their wives and F how to modify them I "Mary, l exclaimed neaieeuy.

The are both to blame, but I won't stand anything my sweetheart says against my mother, even though I do love her. They will never be friends again, as far as I can -see. Should I do as my mother asks, or not? JIMMIE. POOR Jimmy! Tou're In the old. old predicament a man between two women, and one of those women his mother and the other his sweetheart. I can't understand a girl who would allow herself to quar rel with her sweetheart's mother be fore marriage. Nor can I understand a woman who would quarrel with tha girl she knows her son loves. I wouldn't allow my mother to make or break my engagement, but I, would think very carefully before I married a girl who was so stubborn that rho wouldn't give in a little In a case like this. "Forsaking all others to cleave only unto her," that's what you'd have to promise If you married the girl. That's what your mother promised when she married your father. Make up your mind what you want to do and do it. And the women will come arounTI all right when the thing is all settled. (Copyright. 13U.
