I have often had occasion to protest
against the widely hugged delusion of
beef tea being a highly nutritious food.
As I have stated, it Is a stimulant and
has the objectionable quality of render

is an opposite natural tendency at
least, that Is the rule. When this rul?
obtains and there is weakness we shall
find in strong beef tea a most valuable
medicine. But do not commit the mis
take of regarding the stuff as food,
says Home Notes. It will so stimulate
the body that food can be taken; it will
so stimulate It that the person will
feel better, but it Is making li'm live on
