Variety tlie Spice f Life.

The clerk, tied for hours at his desk,
Seeks relaxation on his living wheel

(?) finds relaxation in anv easy chair

he gazes with consolation at his re

English View of Our Cooks.
Tho American is an admirable cook
in theory; in practice indeed he
may fail. Tho rush of modern ideas
is too great for him. The sewing ma
chine, the reaper and the corn ele
vator take up too much time. The
application of electricity and steam
to the arts of T?ace and the ever pres
ent cares brought on him by the
working of the finest constitution in
the world distract hunrom his boil
ing and his baking. He has indeed
the Bame interesting reason for nee-
lecting his clam chowder and his
baked pork and beans, that most in
genious and admirable of all Ameri
can kitchen products, that our King
Alfred had for letting his hostess'
cakes burn immersion in the poli-
itics of his country.
Nevertheless the native born Amer
ican has inventea greatly. iam

Not to Work Is to Die.
Labor is misunderstood and even
despised by too many people. It is,
above au, iookou down upon as
drudgery to which one submits in
order to get food. He who has food.
it is thought, has no need for work;
but he who has not must work of
necessity. Both of these do harm
I distinguish two kinds of idlers
those who are lazy and those who
labor with complaining. ' It is time,
then, to re-establish the dignity of
work. How is one to do it? By the
fact that all should work without
any exception. Having admitted that
work is a law of lif e, it is impossible
to find any pretext by which a man
may bo exempt from it. He who
will not labor in the spirit of this su
preme law is condemned to extinc
tion. He will perish of internal dis
ease, consumed by his imprisoned
energies, which become transformed
When there is no movement, na
ture cannot perform her duty, and so
rusts and corrupts. Are you doing
nothing, young man ? That is enough
I would rt-tlier hear that you had
the cholera, lecause that only kills
and contaminates tue lody. The dis
ease ot idleness preying upon you
will destroy the whole man. You
are not only infected yourself, but
you constitute a center of infection.
In a well organized society he who is
convicted of an evil such as yours
6hould be condemned to death a
death of public infamy, a death by
starvation. The man who has bread
in abundance and lives without work
on the labor of others, or ho who has
no bread, but idly begs it or steals,
as may happen ho should know
there is no place for him in a world
governed by the law of lalior and of
joint responsibility. Ho falls from
the tree like the dead leaves. "Jeu
