The objects of this Association are to promote temperance and health by inducing habits of diet which science and experience show to be best calculated to effect this purpose, viz., the use of the productions of the vegetable kingdom, such as fruit, cereals, and vegetables, properly selected and prepared, and the ultimate disuse of the flesh of animals, birds, and fishes.

Energetic efforts have been made during the last twelve months to promote Vegetarianism in America.

The local societies in Philadelphia, New York and Chicago have held numerous meetings, whilst the new series of Food, Home and Garden published by the Vegetarian Society of America, continue to direct attention all over the country to the truth of Vegetarianism.

Vegetarian boarding houses, clubs and restaurants are being established. An Apple Blossom Society shows that the children are being gathered in whilst reports published in Food, Home and Garden, of different States, indicate that the good work is progressing satisfactorily.
