The stomach is the organ of diges-
tion, situated below the diaphragm on
the left side below the heart, and cap-
able of holding about 3 pints.
The stomach is more often "insult-
ed" through carelessness and misuse,
probably, than any other organ of the
body. The general factors productive
of gastric disorders are by no means
few. Those relating to the nervous'
system stand at the head of the list.
Meals must be taken amongst pleas-
ant surroundings and with an easy
mind. If the individual eats at a time
when he is worrying or with his eye
on the clock, having an 8 or 1 o'clock
class in view, it is pretty certain that
he has not obtained much benefit from
that meal. On the other hand, attend-
ing an elaborate banquet with too
numerous courses and yet because of
the hour:s at the table being hours of
pleasure and good fellowship, what-
ever harm follows is purely mechan-
ical from overloading the stomach.
The influence of mental process over
digestion is found in th gastric dis-
comforts ensuing upon a fit of anger
during or shortly after meals, or loss
of appetite following upon bad temper
before meal time.
Tobacco, tea, coffee, and alcohol tak-
en into the body are capable of disorder-
ing the stomach. Coffee used in mod-
eration, once daily as a rule, is not to
be prohibited, since the morning cup
oft times promotes regularity of stool,
thereby being beneficial.
Indulgences in pastry, sweet and
highly seasoned foods, the productsof
the frying pan, and foods which are
notoriously difficult of digestion, are
responsible for many cases of stomach
Imperfect mastication is probably
the most frequent cause of gastric dis-
order among the American people.
The causes leading to it are "the habit
of being in a hurry" and defective
teeth. The influence or rapid eating
is made still more pernicious by the
free drinking of water at meals to
wash down imperfectly salivated or
The dangers done by rapid eating
are varied. It introduces into the
stomach pieces of food of sizes larger
than that organ should receive or can
expect to manage properly. Necessar-
ily, the lining of the stomach is ex-
posed to "mechanical and even chemi-
cal irritation (if food is retained and
Exercise in the open air is an im-
portant aid to digestion in the healthy.
Hence it is that persons who lead se-
dentary lives are not infrequently dys-
peptics. This does not furnish good
and sufficient reason for ordinary ac-
tive exercise for all victims of gas-
Violent physical exercise after eat-
ing is almost invariably bad. Patients
who are much under weight are bet-
ter suited to rest than exercise, is like-
wise certain. In the majority of cases,
rest in a horizontal position, for a
time, at least, after eating, is advis-
The average man requires food hav-
ing a heat value of 2720 calories per
day. This should consist of fats, al-
bumin and carbohydrates.
Fats have a nutritive value far
greater than that of any other class
of foods. Fats are difficult of diges-
tion. Some are difficult of digestion.
Some are made so by processes of
cooking, as by frying. Butter is a fat-
ty food which even a delicate stomach
can tolerate. It can be used with
other easily digested foods, as bread.
By judicious training in butter eating,
we can do more than any other way in
maintaining the individuals general
nutrition. Olive oil has obtained great
merits as a food, but it is over done
and disturbs digestion and taxes the
digestive powers when taken in quan-
Nurses Must Get Permission to Coast.
Nurses at the University hospital
have been forbidden to go coasting,
without obtaining permission from
Miss J. M. Pindell, superintendent of
nurses. The nurses will only be al-

dell believes are safe, because many
injuries to the nurses have resulted-
in past years.
