HINTS FOR THE HOME. MILK AN IDEAL FOOD. I Milk is, in itself, a perfect food; that ii, it contains all the elements necessary to sustain life and to build up and repair the bodily tissues. As it is a food, it should not be con- sidered as a beverage, to be used as such in addition to solid foods. When so used, says the Mark Lane Express, it adds to the tax made upon the digestive organs. Many per- sons who say they cannot take milk be- cause they drink it at meals, as if it were water', would find that no disagreeable effect would follow when used in place of food and got as a food accompaniment. To digest milk easily it should be slowly sipped. When a glassful is taken at a gulp or two it coagulates in large curds in the stomach these being very dense, are digested with difficulty by the gastric juice. On the I other hand, when sipped slowlyj the curds are thoroughly mixed with the digestive fluids; consequently they are readily acted apon and easily digested. The Department of Agriculture tells us that a quart of milk equals in nutritive value three-quarters of a pound of beef; but the adult finds that the beef enables him to work better and stays by him longer. For children, however, it makes an ideal food. When for any reason it causes trouble it should be diluted with oatmeal or I barley water. This will, in nearly all cases (unless in sickness), dispel digestive difficul- ties traceable to milk. To scald milk, place the required amount in the inner vessel of a double boiler; partly fill the outer vessel with hot water, cover, and place on the fire. By the time the water boilfl rapidly the milk will be at the scalding point, and should be used at once.
