(Copyright. 1914, by A. S. Gray)
It is frequently noted in the daily
press that the average length of life
is increasing, and this leads many of
us to go very complacently about our
g business, feeling that in some way a
paternal power will watch over, care
t for and guard us. This dangerous de
1 lusion is entertained by a very large
majority of our people, and the result
- is shown in the steadily climbing mcr
taliy percentage for ages above forty
Because the infants are so helpless,
d the heart of humanity has been
stirred by the slaughter among the
,t little ones, and a vast amount of or
ganized work has resulted, producing
an enormous reduction in mortality at
e the infantile end of the scale, and this
has had a material effect in showing
t an average life extension; but as yet
t society has not reached the point of
) development where it guards the ma
turing individual against the results
of errors in diet.
If we were living a life that even
I approximated the normal there would
- be little danger to be apprehended
from our food supplies. But under
t the highly artificial conditions of mod.
ern urban life so many of our foods
are now distributed in original sterile
packages, "predigested" and otherwise
processed in order to preserve them,
and we are so far rerpoved from the
point of origin of our food matter
that increasing numbers are losing
all idea of the normal appearance of
natural foods, and the ability to meas
ure and judge intelligently the value
of the claims made by manufacturers.
According to Bunge, the census
taken December 1, 1900, showed that
of the 49,362 children born alive in
Berlin 12,623, more than 25 per cent,
died before the end of their first year,
and this mortality was distributed in
the proportion of only one in every
13 among the breast-fed children, as
compared to one out of every two
among the hand-fed children. Ger
many undoubtedly leads the world in
painstaking investigation of food ques.
tions and for military reasons the gov
ernment exercises quite a
ternalistic supervision over pub C
food supplies. Undoubtedly. this will
account for the fact that statistics
seem to prove that Germany, among
all the great nations, is the only one
whose army recruits appear to show
an average increase in stature and
If we observe carefully how nature

der that in spite of the greatest ef
forts of our experts the natural diet
of infapts has not so far been suc
cessfully replaced by artificial food.
On the other hand, in view of all the
data available we should not be sur
prised to find that wherever, through
physical necessity or as the. result of
indifference on the part of mothers,
children are reared artificially, the '

all as measured by the calories per

easy to figure out and arrange a varied
and balanced ration that will go far
toward solving both the high cost of C
living and the problem of good health I
Much of the published data on the
subject of diet is not readily available I
to people in general, for the reason
that so much is compiled from foreign c
writers, who use a different system
of weights and measures, and it is
both tedious and confusing to figure I
out'and transpose the values. In the C
tables in bulletin No. 28 the values I
are given in calories per pound, and s
it is quite easy to harmonlbe them
with foreign data by remembering i
that one pound is equal to 458.6$I
grams. The ealculation becomes but 1

Of COUrse, there is some trouble
connected with this matter of person
at care regarding one's diet, just as
• some Personal thought and trouble
. were demanded of our prehistoric an
. cestors when they were required to
climb a tree to avoid danger. But
this effort on their part enables us to
be here, and only a like effort on our
part to meet the dangers of this age
will permit us to be represented
among the living in the future.
HOT WEATHER DIET.
Without protein or albumen life can
not continue. It can be got from nu
merous sources more or less easily
and in combinations of various de
grees of digestibility, but it is well to
hold firmly in mind the fundamental
fact that every spark of the energY

For various reasons and as a result
of the highly artificial conditions un
der which the human animal is living
we have been forced from the source
of our natural food supply, but never
with advantage, because the proteins
condensed in meat are mixed with the
poisonous waste products from the tis
sues of other animals.
If it were a question of feeding
horses, cows or pigs all the necessary
information could be found in innu
merable popular treatises, government
bulletins, magazines and agricultural
papers. Any one can learn in a day
how and what to give to a trotting
horse, or how much and what to feed
a working horse, and there is no dis
pute on the general proposition that
if the rations are reversed inevitable
disaster will result to both. But at
tempt to select the right ingredients
and proportions of food for the nutri
tion of men and women and you are
confronted with a mass of contradic
tions, fads and fancies, the only es
cape from which is to wade through
abstruse and scientific treatises.
In warm weather it should be our
aim to diminish unnecessary heat pro
duction as much as possible, at the
same time taking sufficient food to
maintain the body in at least approxi
mate equilibrium. A brief study of

Mr. Louis Hell, the electrical Illu

hoeff, an eye specialist, have published
in Science their opinion that the al
leged dangers to the eye from ltsra
violet radiation of sunlight and var*
ous artificial lights amount to nothtag
at all. They admit that there have
been many "sensational attacks" apos
modern illuminants as dangerous by
reason of injurious effects of ultra'
violet or actinic rays, but these have
"entirely neglected any quantitative
relation between the radiation and its
supposed pathological effects." Very
little of these rays can penetrate the
cornea, and the crystalline lens cats
off completely those that straggle
through toward the retina. Protective
glasses are useful only, they conclude,
