An Abundance of Water Necessary
lltirintr Hot Months, Sajs Authority.
Water is not usually considered a
food. Nevertheless, according to Dr.
M P. Racnel of the department of
preventiie medicine of tlie University
of Missouri, it plays a large part in
our economy and is necessary to the
body. The elasticity and pliability of
muscles, cartilages and bones are due
in large part to the water they con
tain. The amount of water required by a
healthy man every twenty-four hours
is between 3 1-2 and 4 1-2 pints in
addition to what we take in with our
solid foods, making in all about 5 to
." 1-2 pints a day. In summer this
amount must be increased. Every one
should drink an abundance of cool,
but not too cold, water during the
heated term.
Water increases nutrition, and, con
sequently, water drinking will make
one fat. There is no objection what-
eer to diinking water in abundance
during meals, provided the person is
normal. Water, however, should not
be used to wash down partially chew- minds; second, the difficulty or getting
ed foods, as in this way overeating is loans is a hindrance; third, there is

not for their medical value. The good
effect obtained in the majority lof in-
stances is due to the amount of water
consumed, and not to the water's sup-
posed medical contents. Carborated
water mixed with syrups, such as are
sold at soda fountains, are not ob-

amount, and if tho flavoring extracts

the Hale's Tours, and several moving
picture houses were gradually opened
(throughout the country. When the
Tours became a thing of the past,
most of the cities of the United States
were supplied with picture houses.
AH that was needed to open a picture
show then was a room, some seats, a
roll of tickets, a screen and a projec-
' tion machine. Big posters helped, but
in their absence the "bally-hoo" man
did as well. As the shows became
more common, quality in surround
ings and productions was demanded,
anil to cater to this the motion pic
ture exhibitors were forced to enlarge
their houses. Now, the importance
and magnitude of this industry is
Uuch that it ranks first as a means
of entertainment and is high in the
j matter of being an industry.
f Now, Rack lo the Beginning.
j. Almost like a romance reads the
i history of this entrancing business
which has attracted millions. The
I early days of this industry were in-
, tcresting ones, far more so to
more so to thei
average person than would be the

Consisted of but one spindle the one
from which the film was fed into the
machine. As the film passed in front
of the lens it fell on the floor. Of
course, this necessitated untangling
and rewinding, a feat that generally
took more time than was spent in ex
hibiting the picture.
Nowadays, patrons expect a new
picture every day rather, they expect
rrom two to three new pictures. Fif
teen years ago one film was gcnerally
used over and over until it felt hope
lessly apart and could not be patched
together. After it became a mechani

tlie machine, another picture was ob
tained fiom the East. Pictures did

pictures shown at that time, one that
j created a sensation in the entire raov-
ing picture industry was "The Burn
ing of the General Slocum Steam
ship." This film was sent to many
houses, and the patrons went wild over
it. It was greeted as a masterpiece,
and most houses were packed night
after night with persons eager to get
trade pictures the custom in those
days was to buy a picture outright.
The price varied from 20 to 30 cents

were produced in Europe, although

and Chicago.

being informed that it was he went
around a corner and brought back a

persons expressed doubt as to the
