'vThy Begin Dinner With Soup?
The rationale of tho Initial soup has
oftonjhoen iliHcussod. Some regard it
as calculated t diminish digestiva
power on tho theory that so mueh fluid
taken at first dilutes tho gastric juices.
But there appears to bo no foundatiou
for this belief. A clear soup 'disappears
almost immediately after entering the
stomach, and In no way intorfurng with
tho gastric Juice, which is storod in ila
appropriate cells ready for action. Tho
habit of commencing dinner with soup
has, without doubt, its origin In tho
fact that aliment in this lluiu form in
fact, ready digostotlsoon ontors the
blood and rapidly refreshes the hunjrry
man, who. after a considerable fast
and much activity, sits down with a
sonso of exhaustion to commenco his
principal meal. In two or thico min
utes after he has taken a plato of good
warm soup tho feeling of exhaustion
disappears, and Irritability gives way to
tho gradual rising sonso of good fellow
ship with tho circle. Some persons
have tho custom of allaying exhaustion
with a class of sherry bofore food a
gastronomic no loss than a physiologic
al blunder, injuring tho stomach and
depraving tho pala6r-. Tho soup intro
duces at unco . tho sy(cnv ft small
instalment of roady diges'od food, and
saves tho short period of time which
must bo Kpent by tho stomach In deriv
ing some nutrirnont from solid aliment,
as well as indirectly strengthening tho
oran of digestion itself for its forth
coining duties. -Mr Henry Thompson.
