or dextrinised.  Thus “pulled” or twice-baked bread, Granose or Melarvi biscuits, or rusks, or toasted “Maltweat” bread are the best form of cereal for people suffering from neuritis.  Other treatment besides diet restriction is, of course, needed to cure neuritis, because we have to clear the clogged tissues of the poisons which are interfering with right nerve action.  Thus we can resort hot alkaline baths, Turkish baths, massage and Osteopathic stretching movements to help in this respect.

There will come a day when physiologists, poets, and
philosophers will all speak the same language and understand one
another.
—­CLAUDE BERNARD.

 AN INDICATION.

There are some statements, the very simplicity and truth of which create a shock—­for some people.  For instance, there are certain seekers after health who ignore and are shocked by the very obvious truth that “brain is flesh.”  A brain poisoned by impure blood is no fit instrument for the spirit to manifest through, and “mental suggestion” must inevitably prove of no avail as a cure if the origin of the impure blood be purely material.
It is just as futile, on the other hand, to treat the chronic indigestion that arises from persistent worry, or indulgence in passion, by one change after another in the dietary.  The founder of homoeopathy insisted that there was no such thing as a physical “symptom” without corresponding mental and moral symptoms.  “Not soul helps flesh more than flesh helps soul.”  Thus the Scientist and the Poet come to the same truth, albeit by different ways.—­[EDS.]

 PLAIN WORDS AND COLOURED PICTURES.

 While most of us would at first sight find fault with Mr G.K. 
 Chesterton’s sweeping advice—­

    “And don’t believe in anything
     That can’t be told in coloured pictures,”

 many would probably end by endorsing it.  But we should do so only
 because we were able to give a very wide and varied meaning to
 “coloured pictures.”
