Not only what food is best for them, biut also how. they.ought to eat it, and in what rotation. A conference on .the diet of public, secondary and pri vate schools took place at the Guildhall a short ttime ago,. and the remarks there made were of supreme interest. to parents and to all ,who have the care of children. One of the points insisted on by a' mem ber of fthe conference whose opinion is authoritative was ',that monotony in food should' be avoided'. Why is it ,not avoided ? It costs ino more to provide' a variety than a perpetual sameness. True, more food will' be crisuimed, when it is enjoyed, buti surely that snoull not be a matter for re. gret.

But the present demand for absolute sterilisation has been urged by some pure f'od hys teriacs with about as clear an idea of what the term actually means as was exhibited upon the bill of fare in a Filipiino restau rant in Manila. It was a smart-looking, well managed establishment, and very anxious to be strictly up to date and secure Ameri can patronage.

There he discovered, as is 'usual in remote and coiintry. districts where no records are kept, a very., largeQ perentage, of 'centur ions"; ?: as Mrs. Partington' called them. Without stoppihg to test. the claims of these dodderers, sihe. _began hunting about for 'the 'cause of 'this 'excessive longevity, and stumbling upon .the discovery that the inhabitants of the Balkans (in, common with peasants all over the world) consumed large quantities of sour milk and clabber cheese, he jumped to the conclusion that the sour milk was' the cause of the cen tenarians. HIe thereupon launched that furious epi demic, of'the Bulgarian bacillus, which is just now. beginning to .subside and collapse. Post mortems are not agreeable, 'but they are sometimes interesting, and the abstract of the autopsy and findings on the-Bulgar ian bacillus is somewhat as follows: First, the Bulgarian bacillus wou...
