A LONG CHRISTMAS HOLIDAY.
Pupils of the city school ar rejoicing over the long holiday they
havi been given this Christmas. Tho school will remain closed -?ver
two weeks, no classes having been held for the entire week before
We doubt whether it was a wise policy on the part of tho school
board to give'this lengthy holiday. Impressions are made readily
on young minds and they are just as readily lost. It will take con
siderable "review woik" to bring back to the minds of tho pupils those
thirds tl:at wore learned before tho Christmas season. Thus, to a cer
tain extent, it can be seen that a good deal of the work that has
Veen accomplished during tho first part of the present term will have
rSTXO BRAINS WITH YOUR FOOD.
A general agitation is spreading ovor the country in which the
pfopie are being urged to cut down the amount of food that they eat
and to pay more attention to the ingredients of the food than to the
quantity. Promim-nt physicians aro recommending various kinds of
diet* and there appears to be an inslinatiou on the part of tho people
to follow these instructions.
The North Cur lina State Board of Health, in a press article sent
out this week, drals with this subject in a brief and concise manner
and urjjes the citizens of the State to follow the advice that is being
given along this line.
That brains mixed with food will reduce tho high cost of living
without decreasing the nutritive value of the food is one of the con
clusions already reached in the experiment that is now being con
ducted in Chicago for tho purpose of knowing whether or not people
can be properly nourished on 40 cents per capita per day. The ex
periment is being conducted by the city commissioner of health and
includes a "diet squad" of twelve pcoplo who aro furnished thr^o
meni? a day?breakfast, luncheon and dinner?the menu beitig
changed daily with a view of both economy and variety.
The results of the first week of tho experiment showed a total gain
in weight ??f 2Cpounds, the average weight gained per member
beii.g 2.23 pr.und*. Tho members go daily about their business jnst
as before beginning tho test. The actual cost of food served for the
first week was 33^4 cents per^peruon per day, this exclusive of fuel,
lights, sen*ice or other overhead ' hagres. The menu in part for the
week which was Wight at retail prices was two dozen eggs, 35 quarts
of milk, 54 pound# of meat, sugar and flour. Bread was bought in
ten cent loaves.
Probably the most valuable lesson that tho experiment will teach is
tha! economy does not mean deprivation, but education and training?
to mix brains with the daily food supply, in choosing, buying and
preparing. The experiment will not have been in vain if it sets
peo; le to thinking as to how they can buy tho most nourishment
for the lea-t money and at tho same time adapt that nourishment lo
NEW YEAR RESOLUTIONS.
Mondav, January 1, will ho tho day for making New Year reso
lutions. The custom has come to us through many years of usage
and has unqne?tu naLly horn of great individual and general benefit.
How, where ami why New Year resolutions came about no one ap
parently knows. The custom, however,.is not an American one (? r
it is also knowu in European and Asiatic countries. In fact. New
Year's Day is much more observed in some countries than is CVrist
mai. This is particularly true in Franc?, where comparatively little
observance is paid to Christmas hut where everyone joins in cele
brating the advent of the new year.
Thcro are probahly very few people who hnve not mado resolutions
on the first day of the year. It is a time for taking inventory of
our had habits and endeavoring to correct them. Men resolve to
quit smoking, drinking or playing cards; women resolve to give up
candy, to spend Jess for clothes, to attend church more regularly;'
children resolve to bo obedient and kind. Those are some of the
morr. common forms of resolutions that are made. There ar>, of
com so hundreds of others, hut it is safe to say that nine men out of
ten, who make any resolutions at all, havo made np their minds to
quit sin#king. And, oat of this number, probahly eight have g?">ne
back to smoking again before the end of the year.
Even if New Yrar resolutions are not kept, they will have don"
some good. During tho period when a man or woman is endeavoring
to live up to some resolution, there mnst be self denial and us* of
will power. So don't be afraid to mako your resolution on Monday.
Even if you fail to kc*p it, yon will be the better off for having made
