"Dear brother, you can best reach
them with a spon. Go for them with
a knife and fork. Humanity's tender
point is its paunch. The conscience
of a man may be seared aa with a hot

pressions. His intellect may be
stunted, but his appetite is a giant.
Take bim to a concert or the theater,
and he comes awav to seek the nearest
feeding place, where he may gorge
himself before ho sleeps. The little
struggling church that bankrupts it
self still further by -venturing on a lec
ture course, finally lift itself clear out
of debt by a scries of suppers. A man
who will not pay fifty cents for a book
will dump ono dollar and fifty cento'
worth of dinner into his system. A
picnic without ten parti of ed to one
part of band is a flat failure. When

feed him: when wo say 'good-bvo' to

thing to eat. We have a feast for tke
wedding guests, luncheon for the
watchers and a light collation for the
mourners. There aie a thousand res
taurants to one library, yea, more. By

bo true, this world will be peoplod by
a race of stomachs .villi legs and arms.
The legs will be needed to carry the
stomach to the trough, and the arms
to till it up."
