Lemon juice, lime juice, tomato juice, grape-fruit juice, melon juice or the juices of other fruits may also be used, but are not always to be had, as is orange juice. Most children will relish grapefruit juice although many of them refuse tomato juice.

Never give canned or cooked fruit juices to infants and childred. Never add sugar, oil or other substance to them.

The orange juice feeding should be given three to four hours after the milk feeding.

Baby's feeding schedule should be as follows:

6 A. M. Milk.

10 A. M. grape juice or other sweet fruit juice. (In the south fresh fig juice may be used in season.)

12 M. milk.

3 P. M. to 4 P. M. orange juice or tomato juice or grapefruit juice, or other juice.

6 P. M. Milk.

If four milk feedings are given these juices should be given not less than thirty minutes before the second milk feeding of the morning and afternoon.

MILK should be prepared as it is used and not prepared a day's supply at a time. Bottles and nipples should be thoroughly cleansed each time but the usual fuss over these things is ridiculous and born of the fear engendered by the germ theory. All of this boiling and sterilizing of bottles, nipples and vessels belongs to the germ fetich. It is a lot of bothersome foolishness that is possessed of neither rhyme nor reason. Mothers patiently carry out such processes day after day and, then, when their over-fed, overheated, over-excited, over-treated babies develop diarrhea or cholera infantum, they accept the doctor's verdict that the child is suffering because of some want of cleanliness on the part of the mother. She failed to boil the nipple long enough, or something. If these mothers could watch young pigs and see how they scoff at this thing called sterlization they would demand of the doctors intelligent reasons for their babies illnesses.

"All milk-eating creatures are and should be sucklings," says Dr. Page. Quite right! Milk should never be drank like water. Nature teaches us how milk should be taken. So long as your child is to have milk, up to five or six years, give it to him or her from a bottle and nipple. This will insure through insalivation and prevent the child from gulping it down.

ARTIFICIAL INFANT FOODS are undesireable. Dr. Robert McCarrison of England, says that the "seeds" of diseases that inevitably kill their victims in middle life are often introduced into the body with the first bottle of cow's milk or artificial baby food--and he is not referring to germs, either. Dr. Page condemned these various artificial foods, advertised as "substitutes for mothers milk" and, although, "many infants manage to subsist on them, and in many cases, thrive on them," he did not consider that such foods are good.

Dr. Tilden says: "There are many brands of artificial foods on the market, and there are tons of these foods used in this country every year, but so far as being of real benefit is concerned, it is doubtful if they are beneficial when it comes to supplying a need that can't be supplied by something of greater food value.

"I do not say this from lack of experience, for I have had years of experience. I once believed that most of the better brands were really of great use, but I discover after a thoughtful retrospection that I have gradually and unwittingly abandoned the use of all of these foods, and it has come about not because I love them less, but because I love natural food more, and, of course, secure better results with them."

Scurvy, rickets, anemia and malnutrition are often the results of the use of artificial foods. Many children seem to thrive on them for a while, may actually appear to do better than children fed on their mother's milk, and then disaster overtakes them. Be not deceived by the advertisements of those who have infants foods for sale. These concerns exist for profit and not for baby's welfare.

Condensed milk, evaporated milk, dryed milk and other artificial foods are unfit for the baby and no intelligent mother will ever feed these to her child.

SUMMER FEEDING: Hot weather is accused of having much to do with the fearful slaughter of the human animal-- a distinctly tropical animal and certainly well adapted to a hot climate.

Blaming hot weather for certain "diseases peculiar to children" and for the deaths in these conditions, is a very misleading way of saying, as Page puts it, that, "the excess of food that can be tolerated under the tonic and antiseptic influence of cold weather, engenders disease during the heated term."

Hot weather favors decomposition, cold weather retards it. But, on the whole, we are hurt almost, if not quite as much by food excess in the winter as in summer. We are more likely to have bowel diseases in summer, respiratory diseases in winter--this is the chief difference.

Adults usually instinctively eat less in hot weather than in cool or cold weather. They often miss a meal or two altogether. How often do we hear one say "it is too hot to eat!" We find the adult, also, without any scientific knowledge of dietetics, living largely on green vegetables, fresh fruits, melons, etc. They consume bread, potatoes, meats, cereals, etc., in less liberal quantities. They frequently omit the noon-day meal.

How many parents exercise as much common sense in feeding their infants and children during the summer? How often do we see the suffering infant crammed with as much milk as during the winter! Then when the baby is made sick--There is diarrhea or fever--we see it dosed and drugged to drive the demon of disease out of its little body.
