Next to an original and Interesting design, solidity of con struction Is the prime requisite. Care ful cabinet work Is unnecessary and accurate Joining superfluous.

We usually expect the doctor to put us on some kind of penance and r'vc us bitter medicines. A Penn, doctor brought a patient some thing entirely different and the results are truly Interesting.

I was sick and tired trying one thing after another to no avail, but at last con sented to try this new food. . "Welt!

"I noticed Improvement at once and In a month's time my former spells of Indigestion had disappeared. In two months I felt like a new man.

FOOD THAT MAY KILL A wise'man has said, "Circulation That la. whenever follows attention.' there Is need for the activity of any function the organ which performs that function receives an, increased flow of blood. For Instance, a man has taken a long walk and arrives home tired and ravenously hungry. As he enters the house he catches the aroma of cook ing food. What happens? Why. to use a vernacular phrase, "his mouth The attention is directed to waters. 1 the need of eating, and the organs en gaged In eating and digestion at once begin to get a greatly Increased supply of blood. It Is out of the blood that these di gestive organs manufacture their vari ous fluids by which each organ accom plishes Its special part In the work of digestion; so when an Increased quan tity of blood Is poured Into them each organ begins at once to make large quantities of its peculiar fluid. The salivary glands are In the mouth, under the tongue mostly, and when a greatly Increased quantity of blood Is sent to them they at once elaborate and pour out Into the mouth a portion of their contents; so the hungry man who smells the odor of cooking food waters at the mouth. Thus the mind governs Now, the action of the glands of the mouth which produce saliva Is exactly the body. like-the notion nf the glands elaewhcm , . . fn the body which produce gasCTc Juice, pancreattc Juice, bile and other fluids, through the associated action of which the process of digestion Is carried on. When the hungry man smells the aroma of food there is a rush of blood to all the digestive or gans, month, stomach, small Intestine and liver. As a result of this Increase of circulation there Is suddenly poured out more digestive fluid, not only sa Uva, but the others os well. The gas trie Juice begins to flow, the pancreas and liver get ready, and the entlré dl gestlve system Is prepared and able to ?. . / . . . . , take care of any food which Is reason able In kind and quantity. The point of greatest Importance In all this Is that these fluids are poured out only when the mental condition Is right—when there Is In the mind a desire for food. If there should be any feeling of disinclination for food. If there should be even an Indifference to food, the food taken under such cir cumstances would not and could not be properly digested. If there Is In the mind any feeling other than desire for food, If Just pre vious to eating or while eating any thing should occur to disturb or dis tract the mind, then there would be Immediate derangement of the clrcula I tlon. Under these circumstances the ! blood would be withdrawn from the dl ' gestlve organs and the elaboration of 1 the fluids of digestion would cease. Theu, of course, the body would be In no condition to receive or digest food. Suppose that our friend returning from his long walk greeted at the door by the odors of fragrant viands a few moments later Is handed a telegram In forming him of the sudden death of his only son in a distant city. What happens then? At once there Is a pro found change In the circulation. The blood which a moment previously was massed at the stomach and other or . -, . . . gans of digestion, all ready to tek. j care of the meal, is at once switched off to the brain. The man flushes and 1 1 I then pales. Ills muscles lose their power. He drops Into a chair. Per haps he weeps. Hunger? It Is the ) last thing in his thoughts. "I cannot eat!" he cries. "Oh, my son, my son!" And the same perversion of the- cir culation occurs In anger, anxiety, wor ry, jealousy, haste, excitement or any other state of mental pain or Inquie tude. All these conditions simply put the digestive organs for the time "out of business." Food taken under such conditions cannot possibly be digested. Instead it will ferment, putrefy In the system and will be the cause of dis comfort, of disturbed function, of dis ease. perhaps of death. Does this seem extreme? Let me tell yon a story. A great, strong, big breasted, energetic man comes In from a day's fishing. He Is delightfully tired, "hungry ns a bear." At the ho tel he finds waiting for him a telegram bad nows. Me says, "I can't eat." His friends persuade him. He eats a hearty meal. In two hours be is dead. It Is a true story. I know of a score of such cases.
