perature to 70 degrees you can Imagine what a glass of iced liquid will do or Iced food of any kind I have not said anything about tea and coffee because they should be given up entirely I know it Is hard It took me over two weeks fo get over the effects of giving up coffee It was a bitter fight and I felt I think a good de as De Quincy did when he tried to give up opium But I conquered and for two years I have reaped the benefit of 4t Coffee never seemed to hurtme but the toxlcattng drinks I wish they would let beer alone Tou cannot have good clean blood unless you do Beer is considered so harmte8 but it is not harmless It Is harmful and you will find it out some day Eat plain wholesome digestible food as regularly as possible Take no liquid with your meals unless it be milk not iced and drink plenty of water between meals Give up tea and coffee all Intoxicating and iced drinks and ice cream soda And now for what to eat It is easier for me to tell you what not to eat than what to eat I am in perfect health and I will tell you w hat articles of food are not on my health list I think pork comes first I w ish there was no such a thing as a pig in the world There would be less bad blood fewer cancers better complexions It is scientific fact that among Jewish people who do not eat pork cancers are almost unknown Tea and coffee come next and then hot breads of all kinds trugglelhad in giving it up proved that Pl cake puddings pastry highly sea -

fountain man not to put ice or powderedhugar in mine They always look at me with pitying glances thinking I am out of my mind One day when I was in training and not taking sugar I told a clerk to give me a glass of lemonade without ice and without sugar Why miss that wont be lemonade I must confess it went down rather hard but when I am in training I am inexorable When I do not take lemonade I take some kind of mineral water not Ice cold I do not approve of phosphates but consider them less injurious than Icecream soda Leaving out these few things what Is there left to eat Plain soups nearly all kinds of fish I do not recommend sardines or canned salmon mutton beef chicken all kinds of game eggs milk if eggs and milk agree with one and the milk products such as koumiss Whey buttermilk etc nearly every kind of vegetable the most healthful being spinach asparagus tomatoes onions squash pumpkin celery oyster plant beet tops cress and lettuce without oil plenty of fruit and plain puddings without pastry Baked custard blanc mange and other forms of gelatin make fine desserts Rice is particularly healthful Surely out of that list you can find is to It crawiwu mu irciure numen as a igni nere catnug uviwu w rain upon noUrf Of course if a woman v ue afSust a bundle of nerves and my head from the soda -
