The following is in part the address delivered by i r. A. W. Baker at the mothers meeting in the High school last thursday. The subject was Quot Hygiene As it relates to the Public school pupils Quot. After some preliminary remarks or. Baker said diet the child s food should be Plain and varied not too much meat and Rich pastry but More vegetables fruit nuts and Olive Oil milk rather than Tea and Coffee. Meals should be regular and a child should have plenty of time to eat. If you keep a horse i know you Are particular to feed it regularly. It is even More important that your child should have the same consideration. You have been told that you should eat slowly and thoroughly Chew the food. Why because Man does not ruminate As does the of the Deer and some other animals but our food should Lee finely ground before swallowing and thoroughly mixed with the saliva which starts the process of digestion. To enable children to thoroughly Mast Cate their food give them plenty of time to eat and do not allow them to drink while Cating but water May be taken before and after eating. I think Man is the Only animal that washes his food Down with liquids. Children should not be allowed to eat too Oft us Between the regular meals As that keeps the stomach at work All the time. The stomach needs rest just As much As the body does. Cheerfulness at the table is a great Aid to digestion. Let the children laugh and talk at their meals join them in agreeable conversation. A disordered digestion makes a Cross and disagreeable child and perfect digestion produces a Happy disposition. Pure water should be the principal drink. Tea and Coffee Are More or less harmful to growing children As they contain alkaloids which affect the nervous system and irritate the kidneys. Stimulants. Alcoholic liquors should not be Given children. They contain no nourishment which cannot be supplied by harmless foods. They Are positively harmful to Young growing children. Besides Many a Man or woman can Trace his or her downfall to the indulgence of thoughtless parents. Sunshine is one of our Best disinfectants. May people keep their houses shut up tight particularly the Quot spare room Quot or the Quot Parlord for fear the sunlight will fade carpets or furniture. Belter have faded carpets than faded children. Let the Sunshine in even though it keeps the doctor out. Cleanliness. It has been truly said that Quot cleanliness is next to godliness Quot. Cleanliness is conducive to health to cleanness invites disease. Teach children to use the Toothbrush after meals and always to Start to school with clean hands and faces. No doubt you teachers have some pupils who come to school with a Quot High water Mark Quot upon their wrists and Necka. Bathing a where possible a child should have a warm Bath at bedtime and a Cool spouse Bath on arising in the morning. This keeps the skin in a clean healthy Active condition helps the circulation of the blood induces sleep aids digestion growth and development. We breathe More or less through the skin hence the importance of keeping the pores open by frequent bathing. Done to be afraid to Wash the hair it will do no harm unless frequently washed the hair becomes too oily. Discourage the habit among children of putting newspaper Enterprise. An eight year old boy son of James p. Whitla ivsq., of Sharon a. Was called out of the school room by a stranger one morning last week and has not get been seen since. He was kidnapped. His father offered to a Ransom of $10,000, the amount demanded by the abductors the latter having written a letter to the father to that effect. Detectives and the constabulary were at Otice put in motion and but for a Large overdose of what is called Quot newspaper Enterprise Quot the criminals would probably have been apprehended and the boy solely at Home Ere this. The City papers have contained columns each Day going into the minutest details of every movement made by or. Whitla and the authorities and have thus kept the kidnappers thoroughly informed at every step thus enabling them to elude capture. It is to be regretted that this style of journalism is so prevalent in such cases. It has often happened that newspaper men have ferreted out crimes and led to the apprehension of criminals but they have not done it by publishing daily every clue Aud every step taken. It would seem As though the papers that fill their col mus with such matter do it for the Sake of making sales for their publication by Gratifying that morbid desire of so much of the Public that yearns for the sensational but losing sight of the fact that they Are thereby putting obstacles in the Way of those who Are seeking to apprehend the criminals Aud to restore the lost child to his parents. Later. Since writing the above the Whitla Hoy has been recovered by the futher not through the help of the newspapers but by paying the Ransom and by keeping his movements unknown to the reporters.
