Your Health Depends on
the Food You Eat! DR. ALFRED McCANN, one of America's foremost food specialists, is authority for the statement, based upon his experience, that a cage of white mice, fed solely on white rice (polished) almost starved to death, because of the lack of the vital elements of the food. A cage of similar mice, fed on unpolished rice, were still in a healthy condition, when some of their friends in the first cage were dying. Later, the mice were fed the polish which had been removed from the polished rice at the mill, and some of them recovered. So the mice were starved because the vi tal food elements had been removed. This same condition must apply to you, friend, in a more or less degree. The profit - taking world MUST make a profit. People's tastes are perverted by the scheme of making rice and flour and other foods LOOK NICE AND WHITE.

LLANO PRODUCTS ARE PURE LLANO SUGAR CANE SYRUP— Acres and acres of Llano Sugar Cane are each year harvested and made into syrup, ihe process is to run the cane stalks through the crusher, which separates the juice from the pulp, the juice running directly to the cooking pans where steam pipes boil out the water, leaving the thick light brown syrup. It is the essence of the cane, contains all the mineral elements of the juice, nothing being added and nothing taken away except what gees off in steam. Absolutely pure cane juice just as nature intended us to eat sweet stuff. Apply it on Llano Peanqts and you have at once a well balanced ration. Added to food in cooking it replaces the devitalized white sugar, and is much cheaper. Sold in gallon cans at $1.00 per gallon; or in larger kegs. Express or postage ' extra. Weight about 10 lbs. per gallon. LLÂNO SWEET POTATOES— The value of the Louisiana Yam is not yet appreciated in the Northern states. Louis iana can grow splendid sweet potatoes, and they are exceedingly healthful. Ever had ' candied Yams? Try roasting Llano sweet potatoes and pouring Llano Sugar Cane Sy rup over them in the oven; or they cad be sliced and fried in a few minutes. Some folks boil them, but they are best when freshly roasted. Make excellent filler for pies, and can be used in numerous ways by the resourceful cook. Sold by the crate dehydrated, at $1.50 per crate. Weight about 61 lbs. LLANO PEANUT BUTTER— The Llano Peanut Butter is different from most other butters in that it is ABSOLUTELY PURE. The selected Spanish nuts are roast ed lightly, and ground in our mill. Nothing is added but a little salt to flavor, and no thing is taken away. The natural peanut oil is rich in flavor and in mineral elements. Many butter-factories remove this oil and substitute an inferior mineral oil. Llano pea nut butter is PURE. Packed in cans for mailing at 30c for one pound, $1.00 for four pounds. Post extra. LLANO PEANUT CANDY— A most appetising, delicious, nutritious sweet. Made entirely from Llano syrup and Roasted peanuts. 20c lb., postage extra. UN-polished Rice is Llano's Best Food Offer Only 5c lb. LLANO UN-POLISHED RICE— Rice is becoming known as one of the best of cereal foods. Why people should eat polished rice is not clear. The experiment with mice revealed the fact that the best of the rice is removed in the polishing pro cess. Polished rice lacks vital elements. Llano has its own rice farms and is having a large quantity of this rice milled UN-pol ished for its own use. We will have several tons for sale. It is being offered at five cents a pound at the colony and at this price it is cheaper than the polished rice, and cheaper than most other cereals. You can eats lots of rice when it is UN-polished. Look up your cookery book on recipes for making dainty rice dishes. Boiled rice with Llano syrup is a. good ration for breakfast or dessert, or flavored with Llano peanut butter it is very appetising. 5c a lb. at Llano, any quantity. TRY A SAMPLE CRATE 100 lb.

The Vast Importance of Understanding Psychology Said Arthur Brisbane recently: "Every little boy knows how great oaks from little acorns grow. Biolo gists marvel at the change of a tiny cell into a full-sized elephant now hale. But the growth of an idea is in finitely more amazing. Even a word, spoken for freedom of body or thought may grow into a new civilization, up setting ancient empires and laws." Ail changes in human history have resulted from the influence of ideas. Prof. Reuben Post Halleck of Yale University in his "Psychology and Psychic Culture,'- says: "Psychology, in order to be most effective for self improvement, should be studied while the brain is still plastic, and hence ear lier than is sometimes customary. By the age of thirty, a ton of effort will be required to effect a change which J pound could have secured earlier. Psychology is a scientific study of the mind. All sciences presuppose the fact that the mind is subject to certain uniform laws. For all sciences are pro ducts of the mind. Mathematics, the laws of physics, the theory cf evolu tion and of material philosophy, are mental products. If memory and thot work to-day differently from yesterday we cannot depend upon the results of our reasoning powers in any of the sciences. It is the important task of psychology to investigate mental laws. All processes that affect and con dition consciousness are, from one point of view or another, the subject matter of psychology. The mental powers cannot be trained intelligently without a knowledge of psychological la^ Speaking at the psychological meet ing at Llano Colony on Thursday ev ening, October 26, Comrade Pickett talked at length about the educational aim for the new generation at New llano.. How important it is to devel op the right kind of psychology in the young Llanoites consistent with the co operative aspirations of the member ship will become very patent when we read the report of the committee on schools made at the 40th annual con vention cf the Illinois State Federation of Labor held at Rockford, 111., the other day. The Committee charge: that: "The great majority of textbooks on economics and civics are written from an anti-labor point of view, and the information given therein is often one sided and misleading. The unorgan ized teachers, being uninformed on la bor questions, are unable to detect and combat this propaganda. "An insidious attack is being made upon the ideals of the next generation by chambers of commerce and similar bodies through speakers sent by them to school programs, who instill in the minds of the pupils the point of view of the employing class and prejudices against labor. Through junior asso ciations of commerce and military training in the schools, the ideas of the manufacturers' associations and cham bers of commerce are being taught di rectly and impressively to all jhe pu pils in those organizations. "By all these means attempts more or less successful are being made to mold the children into submissive wage- slaves.'.' The Llano educational purpose is to make useful men and women out of our boys and girls, qualified to serve in many lines of work and cultured to the largest measure of versatility. Training them in the handling of var kinds of material, in using all their faculties instead of merely auto matic memorizing of the contents of textbooks. To remember in the fullest sense means to assimilate. The object must be perceived, understood and ra tionally treated. It includes the use of discrimination and analysis. Thus subject becomes a fixture in the mind. The process changes as the ma terial to be handled changes. If the material to be "worked up" is similar, the training gained in working up one kind will help in working up another. Now, as far as technical matters are concerned the Llano Colony is not trying to do anything that has not been done before. The only difference- there is between this community and others is that we are producing for the equal use of all the colonists primarily—not for the sake of profiteering. We pro pose to be directed in all our indus tries by definite, accurate knowledge, and by demonstrated methods of com structive, useful industry. In this con nection, % we shall quote The Great Work" as to what actual knowledge is. It says "Some things we know, and we know we know them. Some things we as sume to know, but we should know that we do not know them. Some things we believe, but we do not know them, nor do we even assume to know when we are happy and we know what sorrow is. We know that we can think and that we can convey our thots them. All other things we neither knoy, nor assume to know, nor do we even believe them. For illustration: FIRST CLASS: We know that we exist. We know that other people ex ist. We know that other things besides ourselves also exist. We know that fire burns and that water quenches thirst. We know that snow is soft and white and that ice is hard and cold to our senses. We know that flowers bloom and that birds sing. We know that as individual intelligences we pos sess certain faculties, capacities and powers. We know that certain things we call food, water and air are neces sary to sustain what we name the life of our physical bodies. We know to others. We know that life has present existence and that what we call death dissolves the physical man ifestation of this earthly life. These are things we know and we know that we know them. Why? Be cause they fall within the radius of our OWN PERSONAL EXPERIENCES. By the aid of our own senses we have personally demonstrated them. And these are the only reasons that war rant us in asserting that we know them. Except as personal experiences, we could never know them. That which is outside the range of our own person al experience is not definitely and pos itively known to us. It is of the utmost importance, there fore, to the cause of truth, that every man who speaks for the world to hear should never allow himself to forget that PERSONAL EXPERIENCE is the only absolute basis and infallible test of what we know. Whatever fails to reach the demands of this simple and exact test does not rise to the dignity of actual and personal knowledge. We assume to know a great many other things that "ain't" so, and these assumptions of every description bones of contention that human beings quarrel and wrangle over and that cause them to split up into mutually incriminating and antagonistic sects, cliques and classes. Says "Warrington Dawson in the Oc tober number of "Health and Life": "We fully see in Mature only what our eyes are physically or intuitively capa ble of seeing; we fully understand in men and in things only what our minds have prepared us to learn, or what our hearts would prompt us to do. * * * Humanity may be divided in many contrasting categories, as the good and the bad, the weak and the strong, the wise and the foolish. But the gréatest cleavage of all exists between those who are willing to understand and those who refuse." In this Colony we should seek all the points of agreement possible, for plfeasant associations and efficient use ful mutual service and productive work and full accordant adjustment is possible to the greatest extent only when this is the attitude of each indi vidual colonist. Let us realize that for us to be governed by preconceived no tions and opinions, unsupported by reason or by facts, will not change a single erroneous assumption, theory or belief into truth or alter a single sub stantiated fact in the least. It will on ly manifest our folly without in any degree adding to our knowledge or increasing our usefulness and happi ness. Comrade Theo. F. Cuno broached the subject of biology and is intending Comrade Theo. to start a class for the study of the subject. The study can be made a very profitable one, provided strictly scientific methods to present-day tan gible objects are applied. The writer for one does not know by personal ex perience just bow life originally start ed and does not perceive how it could help in the solution of modern prob lems in the least if he did. We may not exactly Know wlïat life is, but we can learn how to live a sane, whole some life, and this is of utmost impor tance. Comrade Wurfer dwelled especially on the fact that the object of the gath ering of co-operators at Newllano is to BUILD the co-operative common wealth in miniature, not to enter into possession of the completed ideal that our fancy has pictured to us. If any one cofnes here with the belief that the work has already fully been done, and all they will have to do is to take pos session of palaces and full commissar ies, they will be disappointed. It "up to us" to do the work; and there is nothing that can be denied us pro vided we will pay the full price of pro ductive, useful labor. hand.—Talmud.
