E. O. Armstrong, fruit Inspector for
Marion county, hat issued a circular

the 15 pounds of sulphur, and boil
hard for at least an hour. A longer
time would be better. When it is
done the dry sulphur will all be dis

such as sweet breads and liver; to pin
their faith to mutton and one or two
kinds of fish ; to give np coffee and
drink weak China tea. Thoce who
wish to go further should reflect first,
that man is neither carnivorous nor
herbivorous. For long scientists have
obscored tbe view by useless argu
ments as to whether or not a man was
meant to I've like a cow.
There are other species than the
flesb and grass-eating animals; all
students of comparative anatomy
know now that the teetb of human
beings are identical with those of the
frugivorous apes who live on fruits
and nuts. Not only so, bit the pro
portion of bowel length to body
length in man corresponds exactly
with that in tbe same species, in
marked contrast to what obtains in all
carnivorous animals, where the
bowel is proportionally short
A study of anatomy, therefore sug
gests a frnit diet as tbe most suitable,
further confirmation in afforded by !
the obvions predilection of nearly all
children for so oh food. T' e beBt
frnit for food are apples, bananas,
grapes, nuts, dates, raisins and figs.
Nuts are especially valuable, owing
to tbe large amount of fat they con
tain ; the old-fasbiooed idea that they
are indigestible is due partly to the
error in taking tbem at tbe end of an
already more than ample meat meaL
and partly to insufficient mastication.
Chestnus are the easiest to digest and
make an excellent food. Many other
fruits may be taken, always remem
bering that stone fruits sometimes
disagree, and that acid fruits shonld
be taken in moderation. Strawberries
contain a considerable amount of
purlns, and shonld be avoided by all
with a gouty or rheumatic tendency.
Among fruit, we include those of the
cereals, such as Wieat and rice.
White bread is free from purin, but
brown contains a varying amount de
rived from the busk. Tbe most
wholesome form of bread is unleavened.
