visions is usually a generous store of
sweets. No matter how many dolls and
drums and other things may have been
requested by the younger members of
the family, they take it for granted
that there will be candy.
Much of the indigestion and conse

day feasting is due to the excessive use
of candy by both young and old. Of
course the principal constituent of
candy is sugar. Sugar is a food and one
that is necessary to the human body.
It produces heat aaid energy but when
taken in excess it undergoes fermenta
tion in the digestive tract and gives
rise to various disturbances in the
stomach and intestines. Not only this
but it overburdens the liver witfi evil
If the children and grown-ups are
to hare candy it should be eaten with
or immediately after t'he meals. The
usual custom is to have sweets within
everybody's reach and to stuff them |
between meals.
To properly carry on their functions :
I the stomach and intestinal tract re
| quire a certain degree of rest. This is !
t'he reason that it is much better to eat i
1 regular hours. When candy is eaten i
between meals it means that the digee- I
tive organs mu«t be continually at j
work. As a result, instead of exercis
ing their functions during the usual
portion of the twemtv-four hours, they [
are overworked and it is not surprising
when they rebel from exhaustion, par

Pure candies are not harmful if they
are token in reasonable quarntities.
Unfortunately there is an enormous I
| amount of eheaip candy sold throuigb
! out the country, which is grossly
adulterated. Much of this is colored
with coal tor dye to make it attractive
to t'he eye of youth.
Following the holiday season there
is always a notable increase in illness
whicih are traceable to disturbances of
the digestive system and there is like
wise a perceiptible increase in the mor
tality from these causes. There is, little
doubt but that the overfeeding and the
excessive use of sweets which does not
permit the rational rest of the diiges-
I tive origans and so reduces the general
resistance of the entire system, is the
