out that Oregon has no means for sup

Tl importance of : tacterloleglcal
work was emphasized In the report
which was prepared by Dr. C 8., white.
State health officer, as follows:
"Most all of the discoveries of 51
eases of human beings ' and domestic
animals emanata from laboratories and
there is a strong demand and an ur
gent need for research work In soma, of
the obscure diseases that now prevail.
This work can, only be carried on in a
properly equipped laboratory.
An appropriation of at least $1500 a
year to maintain the laboratory was
recommended. The ' members i of the
board felicitated themselves and the
people of the state upon having se
cured the services of Professor Emlle
F. Pernot In this connection.

Tha resolution approving consolida

Iso reveals what Will be the future
policy of the present board of health.
It was drafted by Dr. G J. Smith of
Pendleton; Its adoption moved by Dc E.
Barton Pickle of Medford and seconded
by Dr. Kinney of Astoria.
"It launches us into a right," saia ur.
Pickle,, "but it is a goal worth fighting
for." The resolution 1 readst
"Whereas, The offices of state board
of health and state dairy and food com
missioner each have for fheir aim the
betterment especially of tha health and
welfare of -the citizens of the state of
Oreiron, ".'.. '..':'?.:' m;
"Whereas, It Is desirous that tne best

funds bow appropriated for the state
board of health to meet the demands
made on it, and the amount appropriated
for the dpiry and food commissioner's
office is barely sufficient to meet the
hish .standard of requirements in thjs
office; therefore be it
"Resolved, That the lpjislature meet

combine the two offices, namely that of
dairy and food commissioner and the
State- board tf health,- together with
their appointees provided by law, name

we do not favor -such -hangs to take
place until January 1, ;I9l3, and 4hat

given, tha sum of $15,000 annually to
meet-the increasing demande upon this

A disagreement abont advertising arose with a Weekly JottrnaL

sneering at the claims we made, particularly regarding appendicitis.
We replied through the regular papers and the "weekly thought
we hit back rather, too hard and thereupon sued for KbeL

many cases of appendicitis an operation could be avoided by discon
tinuing indigestible food, washing out the bowels and taking a pre-
' digested food Grape-huts. v. "'

We' claimed and proved by other famous experts that undigested

When a psin in the right side appears it is not always necessary
' to be rushed off to a hospital and, at the risk of death, be cut.
'Plain common sense shows the better way is to stop food that evl
dentry has not been'digested. ,. ,
Then, when; food is required, use an easily digested food, Grape-
Nuts or any other If you know it to be predigested (partly digested
before taking). ' .. U,
We brought to court analytical chemists from New York, Chicago
; and Mishawaka, Ind, who swore to the analysis of GrapcrNuts and
that part of the starchy part of the wheat and barley had been trans-
forrned mto sugar, me kmd human body by
digesting starch (the? large part. of food). 1 . v '
; Some of the state chemists brought on by the "weekh' said.Grape
r Nuts could not be called aredigestecr food because not all.of.it.--was
digested outside the, bodyi - , . w, ',
The other" chemists said anjr food which had been partly or half
digested outside the bodywas commonly known as "predigested."
' Splitting hairs about the meaning of a word. . ' ' .
It is sufficient that if only one-hal of the food is "predigested h '
: is easier on weaknened stomach and bowels than food in which no
part is predigested. 5; , , t . 4 ' ;
To. show the facts we Introduce Dr. Thos. Darlington, former chief -'
of the N.Y. board of health, Dr. Ralph W. Webster, chief of the Chi- .
;.'icago lahatories,' and.Dr.BSactisV' N.:..Y. , . .,
If we were a Jittle severe in our. denunciation of a writer, self con- :
fessed ignorant about, appendicitis .and its cause, it is possible the
public will excuse us, in view of the fact that' our head, Mr. C W.'
Post, has made a lifetime study of food, food digestion and effects",
and the conclusions are indorsed by many of the best medical authori
ties of the day. , , .
Is it possible that we are at fault for suggesting, as a fatherland s,
mother might, to one of the family who announced a pain in the side: v
"Stop using the food, greasy meats, gravies, mince pie, cheese,, too
'much rstarchy food, etc., etc., which has not b;een digested, then when
again ready for food use Grape-Nuts because it is easy of digestion?"
Or Should the child be at once carted, off sto a hospital and cut?
We have known of many cases wherein the approaching signs of
appendicitis have disappeared by the suggestion being followed.
No one better appreciates the value of a skillful physician when a
person' is in the' awful throes of acute appendicitis, but "an ounce of
i prevention is worth a pound of cure." , v
, N Just plain old common sense is helpful even nowadays. :
This trial demonstrated Grape-Nuts food is pure beyond question.

lunches and useless food but select food certainly known to contain v"
the elements nature requires to sustain the body. May we be permit-,
ted to suggest a breakfast of fruit, Grape-Nuts and cream,, two soft
boiled eg:S, and some hot toast and cocoa, milk or Pcstum. .
The question of, whether Grape-uts does or does not contain ihe
elements which nature requires for the nourishment of the braini also .
of its purity, will be treated in later newspaper articles.
