When one spraks of health, the
mind naturally wing* itself to Battle
Creek, for up there health Is to be
found as at few other places on earth
Vorty year- ago there began in Bat-
tle Creek a return to nature mote
meet, with purposes and prlcfnples in
many respects similar to those which
led to the famous “Brook Farm Expcr
irnent" twenty years before an 1 to the
Grahamitc movement of that period.
This movement, while religious, was
avowedly non-sectarian, and was In a
broad aense philanthropic, altruistic
and reformatory. The Immediate re
suit.1* were the establishment of a
monthly jourral now known as Good
Health and shortly afterwards the
erection of a health Institution called
The Health Reform Institute. ’ The
chief features of the Institute u» this
early period were diet reform, dress
reform and the use of water as a cura-
In 1876 the present management
took charge of the institution and with
the consent and co-operation of tlu*
Board of Directors (the Institution
having been Incorporated ten years
before), a thorough reorganization was
effected. Broader plans were Intro-
duced, the methods of treatment were
placed upon n substantial and thor-
oughly scientific foundation, and the
name was changed to the Battle (’reek
Sanitarium. Since this time the
growth of th • institution hus been eon
•tanf and rapid.
From year to year accommodn
tlons for patients and facilities for
treatments wore enlarged to meet
the Increasing patronage until Feb
ruary, 1902, when a great fire swept
away the two principal build-
ings of the establishment. The erec-
tion of a now building was speedily
begun, ami the following year. May 31,
1903, the present fireproof main build-
ing, erected at a cost of more than
$600,000. was dedicated. The cost of
the entire establishment, including
equipment, twenty dormitories, cot
tages''and othei buildings has amount
ed to more than $1,200,000.
The Hattie Creek Sanitarium ns it
atands today is recognized the world
over as the most complete and thor-
oughly equipped establishment of Its
sort and the headquarters for physio
logic therapeutics or natural methods.
Connected with the Sanitarium is a
Training School for Nurses, in which
from two to three hundred nurses are
constantly under training.
These principles and methods have
penetrated to the remotest parts of
the civilized world, and scores of men
and women who have been trained in
these methods tire devoting their lives
to medical missionary work in heathen
The Hattie Creek Sanitarium may be
regarded ns an epitome of the ‘‘return
to nature" idea in practical operation
Its success in the restoration of sick
people to health brings to it annually
many thousands of men and women,
many of whom have been pronounced
Incurable, but who. nevertheless, with
rare exceptions, return a few months
later to their homes prepared to enter
again upon the battle of life
There are many sanitariums in the
world, but few. if any. that are eon
ducted on the same piano ns that at
Hattie Creek. Tills haven of rest and
health Is In no sense a tnotiey-mak
Ing scheme, and every cent that is
made from patients who art* able to
pay for their accommodations is used
to help those who have nothing hut
broken health. All over this country,
and even beyond the sens, branch in
Ktltutions art? springing up- creepers
from the mother plant at Hattie
Creek. One point in view is down on
State street, in the center of the ; u
tropolls of the Middle West, Chicago,
when hundreds of the* city's poor are
cared for ns tenderly as If in the pat
out Institution at Hattie Creek.
In a few brief paragraphs one can
tell but little of tlie good work of the
Hattie Creek Sanitarium, but a postal
card will bring pamphlets that will
tell all- all except the knowledge ob-
tained by actual experience, and that
experience must he had at Hattlo
tional, philanthropic and reform
i movement which ha* finally eulmin-
| ated in success undreamed of a few*
| years ago. and in this connection a
j brief history 1* most opportune. In 1
February Yr 2 the two main buildings I
of the Sanitarium were destroyed by i
r re F >r a short time the days were
lark for those who bud worked so
hard to build It up But strong hearts
are not to be awed by misfortune,
and a new budding sprung from the
ashes upon the old site.
The deduat.on took place May 31
and June 1. 1903. An elaborate pro
gram was tarried out and many men
of national reputation made speeches 1
and highly complimented the managers I
and their co-workers on their good j
work invitations were sent to all
patients, rich and poor, who had ever
been at the Sanitarium Many re-
sponded in person, and hundreds sent
letter* of regret.
One of the prettiest sights In con-
nection with the whole event was the I
procession of nurses and matrons ;
which formed on the college grounds,
opposite the new Sanitarium building, i
and marched through th* audience to ■
reserved seats at the right and left :
of the speakers’ stand. The matrons
in their usual cream white uniform,
the nurses in blue and wb‘te and the ,
gentlemen nurses clad in new white-
duck suits presented a fright which
moved the audience to one simultan-
eous burst of applause.
As before stated there are many
sanitarium* in the world, but none '
Ju-‘ like that at Battle Creek, It being
the first oi tne kind, so far as known,
v here an attempt has been made, and
crowned with success, to l»cing to-
gether in one place and under one
management all rational healing
agencies, giving special prominence
to those physiological or natural heal-
ing agents the scientific knowledge of
Which has been chiefly developed
within the last century, especially
hyproth crapy, electrotherapy, mas-
sage, exercise, diet, sunlight, mental
and moral Influences, rest, and gen-
eral health culture.
Of course the first thing to lie taken
Into consideration was the construc-
tion of the building to be occupied,
for much depended upon that. But
after it had been discussed pro and
con a plan entirely satisfactory was
adopted and the structure to-day plays
no small part in the healing process
that goes on from day to day at
A Return to Nature Movement.
The philosophy of the Hattie Creek
Sanitarium may be defined as the re
turndo nator * idea. The doctors teach
tie- use of natural foods, natural life,
the use of natural agents in the treat -
n ( nt of disease. A great amount of
attention I* given to dietetics. Fruits,
nuts and nut preparations, cereal foods
and easily digestible vegetables are
the basis for the delicious menus
which are daily served In the great
Sanitarium dining room, at which sit
down hundreds of intelligent men and
women from all parts of the United
States and even from foreign conn
tries. Milk, eggs and other dairy prod-
ucts are also freely used. Great care
is taken to provide the very best and
choicest of everything edible, of which
t lie physicians approve.
During the year which has just
closed a vast amount of these things
were required to provide for the army
of patients who visited the sanitarium,
for several thousand sufferers housed
there during the twelve months of
1904. As to the expense for the past
year It w as considerable, amounting to
a total of $327,189.99, divided as fol-
lows: Nut foods, r»0 tons. $26.76*.SO; 1
cereal foods. 101.994 pounds, $9,521.19;
bread, 65,026 pounds, $2,61)7.43; canned
goods, 3.699 cases. $10,506.65; fruit
Juices etc made on the place, 11.430
gallons, $2,030.90; fresh fruit. 5.783
bushels. $10,203.46; vegetables, 5,137
bushels. $3,695.20; sundry grocery
Items, 41,558 pounds. $3,396.38; eggs,
25,301 dozen. $6,789.65; butter, made
on the place. 29.961 pounds, $5,951.59;
cream, 68.678 quarts. $10,323.70; milk.
57.366 quarts. $1,692.45; coal, 5.714
tons. $20,000.00; labor, $213,553.59;
The amount of charity dispensed
during the past ten years at this
sanitarium amounted to $585,610.
To cate for the patients an average of
725 men and women were employed
during each year, and an average of
550 patients are under treatment at
this sanitarium every day in the year.
Wo have given our readers only a
brief glance at the workings of this
unique e tabli hment. Another article
would be required to give something
of the details of the daily routine of a
guest at the Sanitarium, and of the
met hods which have given to this in*
-t iiution its world-wide reputation as a
Mecca for sick folks.

Light on Present Day Problems.
Sickness and trouble are instru-
ments in God’s providence for leading
ns to realize our sins and needs. They
compel us to turn away for a time
from the rush and excitement of
worldly business and pleasure, and
in quietness look at our hearts and
lives. The suffering you see around
you hurts God more than it hurts you
or the man upon whom it falls. But
he hates things rhat most men think
little of. and will send any suffering
upon them, rather than have them
continue indifferent to them. Mtn

iho Son of God. so one of the strong-
est witnesses p, Christianity to-day
is found in what it does for the poor,
the *ick, the troubled. It is true re-
ligion to “visit the fatherless and
widows in their affliction." provided
those who do it "keep themselves un-
spotted from the world, from selfish
motives, and persooal sin. It is the
business of every Christian, and of
every church to bear such witness to
Waiting. Not a few are waiting
for some singular stir of the emo-
tions. some outward excitement, to
carry them into the kingdom, instead
of going directly to Jesus. They wait
long, and keep on seeking for the
moving of the waters, even while
Jesus is close by offering life and
Jesus cures the morally sick as he
did this man at Bethesda. not so
much by what he does for them as
by what he does in them. He awak-
ens the will-power, saying, “take up
thy bed and walk." Do the duty you
would do if you were a Christian.
The real test of a man is his an-
swer. Are you willing to be made
whole? Are you willing to be fitted
for the highest and purest life? Do
you really desire to be saved from
your sins, and to do the perfect will
The Troubled Waters. Healing still
comes from the troubled pool of life.
“In your vicinity is a pool of water.
You are thirsty, you come to It and
find it Toul with a green scum ou its
surface, you do not drink. In a still
pool devils swarm,’ is a Russian
proverb. Another pool is near. You
come to it and look and find it clear
as crystal, and find in it health, for
it is flowing water that gives as well
as receives."—C. H. Daniels, D. D.
Opposition to Christ on Account
of His Good Deed.—Vs. 10-16. to. “It
is the sabbath . . . not lawful tor
thee to carry thy bed." The general
law is laid down in Ex. 23:12; Jer.
17:21, 22. The principle was that the
ordinary business of carrying burdens
should not be carried on during the
Sabbath, but the Pharisees put on it
an interpretation of details which no
one could possibly obey, and left out
tho whole spirit of the Sabbath.
11, 13. The man defended himself
by saying that, so great and good a
men as the one who healed him had
told him to do it. But the man
“wist,” knew*, “not who it was.”
14. "Jesus findeth him in the tem-
ple," where one so cured would want
to go. “Sin no more,” implying that
his suffering was the result, at least
in part, of his sin. Jesus would make
the man’s cure the means to a higher
spiritual life. For there is something
worse than even thirty-eight years of
The fact that Jesus wrought his
miracle and others (six in all) on the
Sabbath aroused intense opposition
on the part of the Pharisees, so that
they sought even lo kill him. This
act was like a red flag to a wild bull.
It was like a spark to the powder
magazine of thyir antagonism and op-
position. They feared that the sky
would fall when Jesus brushed away
the clouds that hid the stars. They
thought the ceiling would fall when
he brushed away the cobwebs. They
had built their hopes like insects’
nests on the scaffolding of the temple
of Truth, and when Jesus tore down
the scaffolding of tradition, their
pride, their earthly positions, their
power of place, were certain to go
with it, and therefore they perse-
cuted Jesus and opposed his work.
It is thus that every one who is
very earnest in reform is sure to
How Jesus Met This Opposition.
The rest of the chapter is taken up
with the way Jesus met the opposi-
tion, and is full of instruction for all
who are trying to do good in the
midst of opposition. His method is
that “of ignoring himself and his own
reputation" and making the criticism
a text for popular instruction, iri
great spiritual truths.
As to the Sabbath, he showed that
he did on the Sabbath the same kind
of works that God was doing, works
of mercy, of religion, of helpfulness.
He and his Father were one. There
is no record of his doing secular work
on i he 8abbat h. (Vs. it.
In healing the sick man. and In all
his labors, he was bringing life to
men, just as his Father was the life-
giver. He was his Father’s agent and

The greatest gift that can be con-
ferred on any person is life; the next
greatest is more life, larger, fuller,
higher, more exquisite.

Of V.ui Importance fer Success in
The head of one of the largest dry
foods comrr -:ob houses .# this city
was asked the other day how it hap-
pened that his partner, upon whom the
principal responsibility of the busi-
ness rests, came to attain that po-
sit ion. while not yet 30 years of age.
"Purely and simply on hi* own
merit,” he replied. He came Into my
office and told me that he had fust
finished school and was looking for a
position 1 happened to have a po-
sition open at the time for an office
boy, and started him in at 15 a week.
Hi* rise from that position to the one
that he now occupies was steady and
rapid, and was due entirely to the fact
that, after having received an order
or instruct! he could be relied up-
on to carry them out, and do It cor-
rectly, too. He never started off on
anythin* hair-cocked, so to speak. He
was not afraid to ask questions and
thus get hi* instructions straight be-
fore undertaking the work in hand. In
fact, I might say that he owes every-
thing to the fact that he was always
j accurate in all that he did. You may
toink that I am preaching a sort of
ermon, but if young men entering
business positions, whether high or
low, would take for their motto the
two words. Be accurate,’ and wc lid

CONSCIENCE MONEY IN FRAME
Boston Man Gets Unique Contribution
From Man Who Wronged Him.
S. A. MacDonnell of Boston has a
Iwnique reminder that men sometimes
listen to the voice of conscience. It
bangs on the wall in his private of-
fice, and at the first glance it looks
not unlike a collection of medals. •
Closer examination shows that it is
six $10 gold pieces arranged in a ”ir-
cle on a mat of red silk, and with a
big silver dollar in the center. Th»*
whole is covered with glass and in-
| closed in a carved gilt frame.
Th* $61 is conscience money. More
ihan six months ago a man wronged
Mr. MacDonnell of that amount. It
was not a legal, but a moral, financial
obligation, and the man's conscience
prompted him to make restitution. In
order to show his contrition for the*
act he made tLe frarfle with his own
I hands, as well as setting the coins, i
Baying to Mr. MacDonnell he wanted
|o pay the money in such a way that
he should never forget it.
Mr. MacDonnell gave him "the right
hand of fellowship,” and says he
nhould have to be in pretty destitute
circumstances before he would ‘use,

Adulteration of Foodstuffs.
It is almost if not quite impossible
to obtain certain articles which are
true to their name. For instance, 1
(ioiiht if pure olive oil is to be had in

the highest standing. I have found,
that in almost every case the vinegar
sold at low prices is fortified by min- j
eral acid. Cocoa is adulterated with j
an excessive amount of starch or with
thi- ground shells and sugar. It Is an
old story among food chemists that
ground coffee is duplicated by drying,
baking and powdering hog’s liver,
which is mixed with chicory and suffi

Insist on Getting It.
Some grocers say they don't keep
Defiance Starch. This is be< ause they
have a stock on hand of other brands
containing only 1- os in a package,
which they won't be able to null first,
because Defiance contains 16 ox. for
the same money.
Do you want 16 ox. instead of 12 ox.
for same money? Th--n buy Defiance

Chinese Social Customs
According to the laws of good so-
ciety in China young widows shoo til
not remarry. • Widowhood is, there-
fore, held in highest esteem, and the
older the widow grows the more
agreeable her position becomes.
Should she reach 50 years she may,
by applying to the emperor, get a sum
of money with which to buy a tablet
on which her virtues are Inscribed.
The tablet is then placed over the
door at the principal entrance to ner

that if they will buy Defiance Cold
Water Starch for laundry use they

never sticks to the iron, but because

Starches arc put up In %-pound pack-
ages. and the price Is the same, 10
cents. Then again because Defiance
Starch is free from al>l injurious chem-
icals. If your grocer tries to sell you
a 12-oz. package it Is because he has
a stock on hand which he wishes to
dispose of before he puts in Defiance.
He knows that Defiance Starch lias
printed on every package in large let-
ters and figures ’’16 ozs.” Demand De-
