Oysters grow only during the sum mer and especially during the long, warm summers at that, and are scarce ly big enough for the mouth before the third year. It is easy after look lug over a bunch of shells to tell how old an oyster is. A summer bump and Die winter sink come across the shell every year, but after the seventh or tenth year full grow th comes; then, by looking at the sinks between the humps it is hard to tell anything more about Miss Oyster s age. Oysters live to be 20 years old. "Kicking the Bucket."

Therefore, the mental state of the individual has much to do (more than suspected) with digestion.

Considerable more than one-half of Phos phate of Potash. Analysis of Grape-Nuts shows: Potassium and Phosphorus (which Join and make Phos phate of Potash) is considerable more than one-half of all the mineral salts in the food. Dr. Geo. W. Carey, an authority on the constituent elements of the body, says: "The gray matter of the brain is controlled entirely by the inorganic cell-salt. Potassium Phos phate (Phosphate of Potash). This salt unites with albumen and by the addition of oxygen creates nerve fluid or the gray matter of the brain. Of course, there is a trace of other salts and other organic matter in nerve fluid, but Potassium Phosphate is the chief factor and has the power within itself to attract, by its own law of affinity, all things needed to manufacture the elixir of life." Further on he says; "The beginning and end of the matter is to supply the lacking principle, and in molecular term, exactly as nature fur nishes it in vegetables, fruits and grain. To supply deficiencies—this is the only law of cure." The natural conclusion is that If Phosphate of Potash is the needed mineral element in brain and you use food which does not contain it, you have brain fag because its daily loss is not supplied. On the contrary, if you eat food known to bo rich in this element, you place before the life forces that which nature demands for brain-building. Mind does not work well on a brain that is broken down by lack of nourishment. A peaceful and evenly poised mind Is neces sary to good digestion. Is it possible to nourish, strengthen and Re build the Brain by Food? Every man who thinks uses up part of the brain each day. and leave an empty skull in say a month of brain work? Because the man rebuilds each day. W hy don't it ail disappear If ho builds a litilo loss than he destroys, brain fag and nervous prostration result sure. if ho builds back a little more each day, the brain grows stronger and more capable. That also Is sure. Where does man get the material rebuild Ins brain? Is it from air. sky or the ice of the Arctic sea? When you come to think about it, the rebuilding material must he in the food and drink. and water. Grape-Nuts contain that element as more than one-half of all its mineral salts. to A healthy brain is important, if one would "do things" in this world. A man who sneers at "Mind" sneers at the best and least understood part of himself. That part which some folks believe links us to the infinite. Mind asks for a healthy brain upon which to act, and Nature lias defined a way to make a healthy brain and renew it day by day as il is used up from work of the previous day. Nature's way to rebuild Is by the use of food which supplies the things required. Brain rebuilding material is certainly found in That also is sure. Are the brain rebuilding materials found in all food ? in a good variety but not in suitable proportion in all. To illustrate: we know bones are made large ly of lime and magnesia taken from food : therefore to make healthy bone structure we must have food containing those things, would hardly feed only sugar and fat to make healthy bone structure in a growing child. We Likewise if we would feed in a skillful nmn o insure getting what the brain requires ner for strength and rebuilding, we must first know what the brain is composed of and then select article or articles (there are more than Grape=Nuts some one) that contain these elements. unquestionable Analysis of brain by an authority, Oeoghegan, shows of Mineral Salts, Phosphoric Acid and Potash comoined (Phos phate of Potash) 2,91 per cent of the total. 6.33 of all mineral Salts.
