Eating for Death
By Bernarr Macfadden THE crime of the age is meal time eating—without appetite. It is the direct cause of more suffering, weakness and disease than any other evil.

Can a Man Be as Strong as a Lion?
Perhaps not; but Edwin Checkley believes that, weight for weight, a man should be just as strong as a Lion.

What a difference Cantilever Shoes make
"Oh, come along." But Dorothy dropped back limply in her chair. "My feet hurt, Peggy. Honestly, I feel just all in." Peggy kept Bess from leaving, then went at Dorothy again. "You've been shopping with us not two hours and here you are, letting your feet spoil your fun." "I guess if your feet hurt the way-mine do, you—" "They used to, Dorothy," Peggy interrupted, "only I did something about it. My feet used to throb like a toothache. They spoiled ever so many good times. I was getting to be a real grouch, when Bess got me into Cantilevers.

Who Are the Quacks?
By Annie Riley Hale YOU see the Allopaths arrived first, with Hippocrates, and quickly seized all the natural strongholds,—popular ignorance and superstition, the laissez-faire instinct of the mob to be led or driven, and the panicky animal fear of pain and death. These they further fortified with traditions of medical learning and omniscience; with the alleged inability of the lay mind to grasp any ordinary physiological fact; and the pleasing fiction that every physician is a man of science, holding the only key to health.

"I've Kept My Beauty, Despite Motherhood" —Says Ida Schnall
An Interview by Graham W. Desbrow ONE of the oldest fables among old wives' fables is that, after a baby or two, a woman ceases to be a girl. She becomes a "matron"—usually identified by a flabby condition of the breasts, a pendulous abdomen, and a rather luxurious accumulation of embonpoint.

Did YOU Ever Dream of Being a Great Canal Builder - - like Goethals?
THE greatest men are the greatest dreamers. In youth they look years ahead and picture themselves doing the big things that later thrill the admiring world. As boys—they imagine themselves directing the boring of gigantic tunnels underneath towering mountain passes. They see mammoth transoceanic ships—like floating castles—Leviathans— all creatures of their own creative brain. They see great ship canals—channeling through trackless jungles in spite o£ a thousand obstacles that had threatened failure.

The Perfect Day
By Dr. Frank Crane DR. EUGENE LYMAN FISK, Director of the Life Extension Institute, some time ago published a very interesting article in the daily papers in which he charted out a Perfect Day of Health. As all of my readers may not have seen that article, I am taking the liberty of here passing on some of its main points and adding a few suggestions of my own. For I find that people like to be told just exactly what to do rather than to be given a principle and required to work it out according to their own judgment.

Birth Control - A Two-Edged Sword?
It Is the Only Road to Race-Improvement, But—May It Mean Retrogression? — What Is Your Own Relation to It? By Albert Edward Wiggam PRESIDENT HARDING recently wrote, a letter which ought to have attracted international attention. The letter was addressed to a citizen of the United States, whose name would never otherwise have gotten before the public, congratulating him upon the fact that he had achieved a family of sixteen children. I naturally supposed upon reading President Harding's laudatory comments that the parents of these children were persons of exceptional distinction in some field of science, commerce, art or public service, and that these fine talents would be inherited by the children to spread through the nation. What was my astonishment and disappointment, when I learned that this man's services to human society were valued by his fellow men at twenty dollars a week! Now some of the greatest men who ever lived had fathers who earned even less than twenty dollars a week. But Sir Francis Galton, the founder of Eugenics, Havelock Ellis and others, have found that, in the long run, at least one-half of all the great men of the world, who have made civilization what it is, were born from parents who had achieved great distinction and usually wealth, and that nearly all the other half sprang from parents of the abler and more well-to-do classes.
