Some Books of the Week

Yzi' another book about food comes to us from the Oxford University Press—Dr. Callow's Food and Health (2s. 6d.). Edmund Kin, the author tells us, is said to have altered his diet according to the part he had to play ; pork for tyrants, beef for murderers, and mutton for lovers. Why mutton we are not toll, but it is certainly a fact that food affects the whole man, not the " physical " alone. There is some useful advice to the corpulent in this book, and much which will enable anyone to plan a sensible diet for the household.
