For perfect health a more varied diet
is necessary; the system nerds som
starch and sugar and a considerable
amount of fat. Women who undergo
the banting system are apt to emerge
with sallow, dry, wrinkled skin. They
look, as they are, unueraourlshd. The
diet I recommend Is less strenuous and
to get good effects should be accompan
ied by at least one-half-hour's daily
work at specific exercises that I shall
give you later and a certain amount of
walking or vigorous outdoor work.
Breakfast One egg, cooked In any fash

apple sauce made without sugar,
Lunch Choose one of the following
dishes: Cold meat with green salad. Raw
oysters with a few buttered crackers.
Dry toast with baked apple, apple sauce
or any stewed fruit cooked with very lit

This diet includes a small amount' of

digestion. In addition, drink on arising a
cup of hot water with juice of one lemon

The same can be done with the mind.

Nature's Secrets Not All Known
In this age of marvelous achievements
and discoveries, we need an occasional
dose of anti-boast. It clears up the mind
and shows the wsy for future advance.
It cannot be denied
that the chemists jpr-iuf

their splendid work)
xnd Imitations of
are the cause of
great deal of vain
boasting. To : accept
all that is aaid for
tl.em, If not always
by them, would be
to believe that nature
no longer has any
secrets that cannot.
In the laboratory, be
made as plain and

A great number of
"sjnthetic" products
nature's products have boeh ilut unn
the market, and their fabricators have
been rash enough to try to persuade even
Dr. Wiley that they are better than
nature'a own work. Some of these things
really are good and extremely creditable
to their Inventors, but they are relatively
few in number, and people who think
that we are almost on the point of being
able to dispense with the handicraft of
Dame Nature and to turn away from our
doors the kind old nurse who has hitherto
taken such good rare of us In order to
make room for an automaton that can
do her wrrk better than she can. ought
to have their eyes opened.
The number of nature's marvels that
chemistry can Imitate, more or less suc
cessfully (usually less), is considerable;
the number that chemistry has not the
slightest notion how to Imitate Is im
mense. I am not going to make a list of
such things or ven to search for a
particularly good example. take the
first that comes, by accident, to ray at
tention, a very fragrant, beautiful and
useful thing, vis., red cedar or Juniper
Everybody who has a good lead pencil
in his pocket knows what red cedar la
He knows what a smooth-grained, soft,
yet crisp and flexible, delicately aromatic,
pleasant flavored, light, but sufficiently
Mrong. wood It is. If, In his youth, he
tter had in his hand and subject to his
Jack-knife a chunk rut from the dark-red
heart of some old cedar post, which has
stood unrotted in the ground since his
great-great-grandfather's days, he will
recall the wondering admiration with
which he regarded it, how It perfumed
the air with its strange, rich odor, and
how his very knife seemed to thrill with
the pleasure of cleaving Its compact,
elastic fibers.
The fact that man cannot make cedar
wood or anything that Is acceptable In its
place Is shown by the story of the pencil
Industry. The lead pencil manufacturers
would be very glad to have an artificial
or "synthetic" cedar If they could get it.
They would rejoice If some other wood,
more abundant, could be found that
would answer as well as cedar does the
needs of the factory and the taste of the
public. Various substitutes have been
tried, but none will do.
The consequence is that the world's
supply of red cedar or Juniper Is belt;
rapidly exhausted.
A single pencil factory In France con
sumes ai.flOu feet of cedar lumber a year.
It is so precious that, as I am (informed,
houses in our country in which cedar
wood has been freely employed for con
struction in the days when lead pencils
were virtually unknown and all wood
was cheap, have In recent years been
partly or entirely demolished in order
that the crisp red wood might be sold
to pencil manufacturers. Furniture made
of red cedar has been broksn up for a
similar reason, and Innumerable cedar
fencepotta have beeu pulled out of the
ground and turned to a more Immediately
profitable account. Old farms are said
to have been found whose fences of red
cedar were worth more than the entire
land that they enclosed.
There Is within a few rods of the place
where I write a red cedar tree growing
with its branches interlaced with those
of a number of fir trees. They all spring
out of the same ground and are all
nu: lured by the same sunnhlne and the
same soil, but the cedar. In its strange
alchemy, works up these materials Into
the pencil wood of the pencil makers,
while the firs, standing right In touch
with it. turn them Into wood of a very
different kind.
Chemistry has al long road yet to travel
before it can hope to put carbon, nitrogen
and water together snd out of their
combination produce a synthetp cedar.
By taking a little thought any one can
recall a great number of things that na
ture furnishes frnely and that we cannot
do without, but which still lie far beyond
the range of the cunningest science. It la
one thing to know what an object la made
of and another to know how to make It.
Advice to Lovelorn
Prudery and Plewsnre.
Dear MIhs Fairfax: I am perplexed,
over the question wether It to proper or
lmpror for a young girl to go to a
cabaret with her. escort. Also, what
should she order in the line of drinks?
Would you pleaae give the names of a
few suitable refreshments in this line?
I am a young girl who likes pleasure
very much, but still I do not like to do
anything that my mother would be
ashamed of telling, and still I do not
like to be a prude and spoil the fun for
others. FERPLEXKD. .
There arc some cabarets to which it
would be proper for you to go. Drink
lemonade, orangeade, ginger ale, sar
saparllla, grape-Julc,e, or any bottled
water. Simply make sure that the
cabaret to which you go Is a perfectly
reputable one; drink no liquor, leave be
fore midnight, and rely on your good
taste to keep you from doing anything
that would shame your mother.
Think It 0er.
Dear Miss Fairfax; May I have your
advice on a matter of considerable im
portance to me? I am a young man of
21. and am earning per month. My
work is far away from the comforts of
my home, and 1 feel the need of some
one to give me the comforts of home
and to have an interest in my work,
which Is professional In nature and at
times very heavy. 1 am tired of board
ing. There is a girl. Would I make a
mistake In marrying at this age? Is
mv salary sufficient to support us com
fortably? Should I wait? 1 shall ap
preciate your reply. Sincerely,
You had better analyze .your situation
a little more carefully. Talk It over with
the girl. It Ih not good to wed Just be
cause you are lonesome. Your salary is
quite sufficient to support a wife tn a
modest wsy. Many men are raising
families on less.
