OBJECTS AND AIMS.
THE present is emphatically an age of inquiry, in which time-honoured observances and hoary customs are submitted to rigid scrutiny, and, if "found wanting," are ruthlessly consigned to oblivion and superseded by others more in harmony with the spirit and genius of the age. To aid in securing this result, so far as relates to the false dietetic practices of the world, is our primary object in the establishment of a new periodical, in which we seek to advocate the adoption of a more healthful, more economical, and humane system.
Whilst, however, this is our distinctive position as the organ of the VEGETARIAN SOCIETY, in our relation to the public, to whom we appeal for support, we shall treat of more general questions,-seek to advance the cause of sanitary reform-to promote those measures which have a bearing on human progress,-and thus help forward the moral and social well-being of the masses. The pernicious customs of using narcotics and stimulants will, therefore, receive our earnest attention.
The hopeful efforts now being made in the promotion of social science, indicate a more general recognition, on the part of the public, of the intimate connection that subsists between the careful observance of physical laws and the culture of man's moral and religious nature.
Whilst refraining from all questions of a sectarian character, our pages will from time to time contain articles written in a catholic and religious spirit, believing, as we do, that true religion consists in being God-like and in doing good to all men as we have opportunity.
Experience has indicated that a wide circulation of our literature has been more effective in making converts to Vegetarian principles than perhaps any other mode of operation. Hence the importance of a large circulation of the DIETETIC REFORMER, and we, therefore, confidently appeal to all Vegetarians, whether members of the society or not, for their individual and associated effort in its support. All can thus aid in the diffusion of the principles they have espoused.
Our plan of publication embraces the insertion of original and selected articles, treating the several questions embraced in our prospectus; also essays, and papers on kindred subjects, whether written expressly for our pages or previously read before associations. We shall also present a variety of extracts calculated to interest and profit our readers.
A portion of each number will be devoted to reviews of important works, especially such as treat of dietetics, physiology, and hygiene. Brief notices of books of a more miscellaneous character will be given as early as possible after the books reach us.
In the correspondence department we shall be glad to present suitable communications, whether in favour of Vegetarianism or against it, desiring to have "open columns" for the free discussion of all questions comprehended in the plan of the DIETETIC REFORMER. The Conductors do not hold themselves responsible for the opinions that may be found in this portion of the periodical. In every department, however, they expect to receive the assistance of some of the ablest available writers on dietetic and social questions.
To make our publication practically useful, and a welcome visitant in the family circle, we shall occasionally present our lady friends with some valuable recipes for the preparation of Vegetarian dishes.
Considerable space will be devoted to intelligence, and under this head will be found verbatim, or condensed, reports of lectures or meetings, and extracts from important speeches, as well as brief accounts of any public or social operations, whether in connection with the various local associations or resulting from individual activity.
The new Quarterly, being the organ of the VEGETARIAN SOCIETY, and thus supported by all Vegetarians, will become a medium of communication with the members; whilst, at the same time, its advocacy and discussion of the question, will render it an expositor of correct dietetic principles to the general public.
The advocacy will be conducted in the most kindly and catholic spirit, as the movement it is intended to support is essentially one of beneficence and good-will to all, seeking to convince the world that a return to that simple and beautiful diet which was "appointed" in the beginning, will promote man's highest moral and physiological development, and thus aid in educing a purer and nobler condition of humanity.
