'That person enjoys, the best health, the .keenest mentality and powers of perception, the highest mental, physical, and emotional organism who can select. and feed upon such articles as will supply all these constituent parts of the body most nearly in the right or natural proportions. AIL the body elements .can.-be; found in the vegetable world 'in their purest form. "It requires, therefore, but little knowledge to enable man to select food, from such articles as will supply all .these elements in approximately the right proportions; but to this important matter he gives practically no thought. Every housewife, especially every mother, should understand something about the chemistry", of: the, v body and its, needs,' and also understand about food chemistry, which -tells' how Ho supply' these needs. No intelligent mother would; give her child ori husband medicine! compounded by a: druggist that knew nothing about the chemistry'and notion of drugs ; yet most mothers are putting a prescription'of food upon their tables +hree times a day . without any knowledge whatever of ithe chemistry of foods "or thf* demands of the family.
