Chllili-cii' Appe-tl ! To promote children's appetites tako enre that they have plenty of outdoor exercise and that they have only such Dimple, homely food as they can digest. If this be done, there will tcldmn if ever be any cause for anxiety on the Ocore of their lack of appetite. If children are fed on highly season ed and rich food and are allowed to eat between meals, their little stomachs ore overtaxed, and not only do they lose nil healthy appetite, lut the food they take does not nourish them as it should do. Illness Is a most expensive and In most eases a preventable nuisance, and the best way to keep children happy and good is to kei p them well, which is usually easily managed by attending to Ulijile rules of health. A child's appetite is a pretty fair in dicator of health, so If it fails and the failure is not due to Indiscretion In dh t see whether it is worried over les bons and has ei.oi.'h sleep. Keep It from reading s -aational stories and, if needed, give It a short holiday from chool. I'lilli1'1iliin Women.
