Dr. George F. Butler, medical super-
Intendeut of the Alma Springs Sani-
tarium, AVaia, Mich., In tho October
number of "How to Live," gives some
interesting as well as sen. iblo rules
for acquiring and keeping health. He
says: "Without we eat and drink, we
die! The provocative to do both rests
with the appetite, which, in process
of time, becomes a very uncertain
guide; for the palate will often induce
a desire and relish for that which Is
most mischievous and indigestible.
The old saying of 'eat what you like'
is now shunned by everybody of 20
years' experience. Still, without appe-
tite, It is a very difficult affair to sub-
sist—for the pleasure depends chiefly
upon tho relish. The relish may be-
come, as has been stated, a vitiated
one, but it is quite possible to make
the stomach, by a little forbearance l8t wouldn t you.'
and practice, as enamored of what Is
wholesome and nutritious, as of that Don't let the wild -ey
which Is hurtful and not concoctlble."
Again ho says: "Tho delicate
should feed carefully, not abundantly;
it Is not quantity which nourishes,
but only that which assimilates."
"Be careful of your digestion" is
the keynote of the doctor's argument.
Ho says: "Health In man, as in other
animals, depends upon the proper per-
formance of all functions. These
functions may be shortly said to bo
three: (1) tissue change; (2) re-
moval of waste; (3) supply of new
material. For the activity of man,
like the heat of the fire by which
he cooks his food, is maintained by
combustion; and just as the lire may
be prevented from burning brightly
by improper disposition of the fuel,
or imperfect supply of air, and as It
not supplied, and may bo choked by
Its own ashes, so man's activity may
be lessened by Imperfect tissue change
and may be put an end to by an in-
sufficient supply of new material and
' imperfect removal of waste products.

There are men who are clamoring
for Co-operative stores. No merchant
nor peddler is eligible to membership
in the Farmers' Union, yet men join
the Farmers' Union and want the un-
ion to go into the mercantile busi-
ness. Ninety-five per cent of the men
who go into the mercantile business
fail. We tried the store business in
the Alliance and frequently the mana-
ger got all of the goods Into money
that he could well get and then walk-
ed off and forgot to come back, and,
the money walked off
with him. Why contend for something
that Is unconstitutional and besides
has proven to be a miserable failure?
Sometimes a good brother speaks
of the small amount of money in cir-
culation. If we will raise our living
at home we will need but little mon-
ey in our business. If we will be 12
months marketing our crop it will not
require so much money to buy tho
crop. A small amount of money that
is continually changing hands will do
an immense amount of business.
