Important Text:

Finishing the day's work "dead tired" is neither wise nor necessary.

Everybody knows that a fatigued system is readily susceptible to the common ills. To maintain vitality during the last half of the day is therefore essential, not only for the sake of health but eflicient work.

One of the simplest ways to combat fatigue is eating -a food or drinking a beverage that contains

refined sugar. Candy, ice cream, cookies and cakes are ideal in this respect. Best of all they can be bought readily and cheaply everywhere. 

Medical men have made many experiments with workers and sugar foods in mid-afternoon and have

found the results most satisfactory. The sugar quickly nourishes the body without taxing the digestive system. When the body is nourished in this way, fatigue disappears.

Such sweet snacks as those previously mentioned can be kept in one's desk and eaten while at work.

For a sweet beverage, a glass of water containing sugar-- the "athelete's cocktail"-- is most invigorating.

Many famous athletes drink this prior to a hard game.

Most foods are more delicious with refined sugar. The Sugar Institute.
