Kever waa mortal man more unfortu
nate ilian when ha 'miatook' the relation
between stimulation and nutrition. ' This
mistake, in the physiological tense, may
well be celled the fU of the race. ; 1 urn
has been for man'y. ccmurics the great
grand error of the acii'ntific world, or the
medical profession, Knd of lh pcojilo "at
large; It has led ta' into the ueof the
grossest cnmpounda,under the-name of
food i of all form of rlchilic combina
tions under the . name of drink ud ell
the most virulent poisons under the name
of medicines.' It is the root nud storting
nt of all manner tf faUC theories and
bad habits i od its practical application
is spreading disease, and inultiplying iu
firiuities alt over the civilized world. , '
No two ideas can be more intrinsically
different from each other than stimulation
and nutriiiJrt. ' Thef are eaacUy'-aniago-nirfrc.

this is about all the newspaper press gen
