COISITIESI DIET, How Nature Adapts Food to Man and Man to Food. QUICK Wit SAVED HIM. GREAT VALUE OF CEREALS,, Why People Can Eat Bread at Every Meal Without Getting Tired of It. The Fruite of the Burning Tropic* •nd the Fats of the Frozen Arctic. Modern science has shown that nature provides food for mankind with marvelous care and foresight. The human system requires a certain amount of protnkl daily to replace woruout muscle and tissue. Fish and meat supply tills iu lai'ge quantities. In hot climates, however, these spoil so quickly that their uso is limited. Nature, as if to compensate for this, has given to certain tropical fruits a much larger Quantity of proteid than northern fruits contain. Thus government analysis shows that flgs have five units or calories to the ounce, dates two and five- tenths and bananas one and flveitcnths. Apples have five-tenths, peaches nine- tenths and pears seven-tenths. Probably the figs and dates tested had lost part of their moisture, and some allowance should be made for this. The Arab can, therefore, maintain his vigor on a diet chiefly plucked from trees. Henry M. Stanley and his white companions subsisted almost entirely on banana flour for two years In the African jungle. Their freedom from disease was in part attributed to the wholesomeness of this diet. The dried banana contains 20 per cent of proteid, about double that of ordinary wheat flour. At the opening of the mango season in Jamaica many of the natives practically live on this fruit for two or three weeks. They fairly revel In It. An Englishman who was familiar with the science of diet could not understand how they could not only maintain their health on this fare, but actually grow sleek and fat. He knew that an effort to live on the fruits of his native country would result In weakness, sickness and eventual death. Chemical analysis showed, however, that the mango contained enough pro- teid to supply the bodily needs. If nature has been thus kind In adapting food to man's uses, she baa been equally so In adapting man to his food. You may have wondered why people can eat bread at every meal without tiring of It. The difficulty of eating one quail a day for thirty days is well known. Even such delicacies as asparagus and strawberries cause an <av*r«!3ir when served too frequently.' Nature sends men a never failing appetite for cereals because they are altogether the most valuable of foods. They contain n considerable amount of proteid, their salts are of importance to the organism, they are readily digested when properly cooked, and they furnish a great deal of nourishment In small bulk. Thus wheat flour, ccrmneal, oatmeal (dry) and rice (dry) have more than 100 units to the ounce. Baked potatoes have 31i.7 units, cabbage has 9.2, spinach 7, asparagus G.5, apples 18.4, strawberries 11,4, spring chicken 19.5 and tenderloin of beef broiled 5.9. If a man tried to get even half of his nutrition from the coarse vegetables, which have a considerable indigestible residue, he would have to eat pounds of them daily, and his stomach would be sadly overburdened. Nature gives us the de- wire for a varied diet, and science shows that this Is altogether the best for us. In the arctic regions there IH little vegetation. Man must live almost wholly on animal foods. Fish and meat would not suffice, because they contain only protelds. These would replace wornout rnuKcle and tiscue, but could not be burned In the body to generate heat and energy. Fats, however, consist of carbon and hydrogen, which are the chief components of the foods of vegetable origin and supply the fuel needed by the body. The polar animals have fat In abundance, but residents of the temperate and torrid zones can eat it only In limited quantities. To them the mere thought of chewing chunks of grease la nauseating. The children of the frozen north, however, are endowed not only with the ability to cat and to digest large quantities of fat, but with a keen appetite for It. One who Is sensitive to such Impressions must turn away when he sees the natives of southtVn Alaska, the ThlinkilH, swallowing Heal oil flavored by salmon berries with the gusto of a boy over ice cream. The Eskimos, farther north, will eat blubber, slightly cooked in the flames, to an indefinite number of pounds.—New York Tribune. The Way a Criminal Fooled a Paris Police Chief. In the "Memories" of M. Clp.'.Kk, chief of police during the relgu of Napoleon III., there is much that Is fascinating to lovers of detective stories. One of M. Claude's experiences was that in which he was outwitted by a clever criminal who saw In the police chief's resemblance to Oeratigcr when the poet was at the height of his popularity a means of escape from capture. The criminal had returned to Paris and was living as a rich student 111 the Latin quarter, then In the height of Its boiiemlan splendor. Claude thought to make an easy capture of his mail by attending a certain famous ballroom at the hour when dancing was at its height. He tells the story: "I had uo difficulty In discovering him seated among a swarm of pretty girls nnd bewitching danseuses. "Corn-lived It ro were but two ways of getting tlie better of a cunning enemy—surprise nnd audacity—I walked straight up to where my rascal was seated. I walked slowly, with steady steps, my eyes on the eyes of my man. He was a dark skinned, handsome fellow, wltli a face as bra/en as it was cynical. I saw by an impreccptlble sign that he recognized me. He turned pale—he was mine! "I was almost near enough to capture him when I saw him bend to the ear of one of his companions. Instantly all the girls surrounded me and stood in a feverish, excited, ardent phalanx before me. They formed an impenetrable barrier, behind which my rascal escaped, while the woman pressed eagerly upon me, crying out: " 'Eerauger! It Is Beranger!' "The magic name presented upon the youthful spirits there the effect of an electric spark. All the dancers of the establishment stopped dancing and surrounded me with acclamations. The students and young girls rushed up to me, some bearing bouquets, others glass in hand. I was literally covered with flowers, while the whole place rang with shouts, a hundred times repeated, of 'Vive Beranger! Vive Beranger!' "I was aghast, and yet I understood the trick. On the point of being collared by me, the man 1 had marked down had recourse to this shrewd game, which must have succeeded even better than he expected. I certainly had some points of resemblance to the Illustrious song maker or the whole world of students and grlsettes in the Latin Quarter would not have fallen so readily into his trap. I was as bald as the poet at that time, and at all times I bave had a certain good natured, sympathetic benevolence in my appearance such as the portraits of Beranger show to this day. "Well, if the youth of Paris countersigned the intentional error of my clever scamp I owed it to my resemblance to the poet. Though 1 was tricked, I was well tricked. It was not for me to own to these giddypates that I was not. Beranger, but Claude, the policeman, the agent of all the prosecutors, judges and lawyers who under the restoration had done so much harm to their idol. I escaped from the ovation, which was becoming delirious under an avalanche of flowers."
