Gold was so scarce the treasury quaked

But the faith that was in us was strong

They knew it was hardly a value in

AN OLI IRISH WOMAN'S JUBILEE
ADDRESS TO 1UK O.LEKN.
From the Pall Mall Gazette.
fDear Sir. It may be rather late
In the day for an old Irish woman
to present a loyal and sympathetic
address to her Majesty on the occa
gion of her diamond jubilee. The
delay must not be attributed to want
of zeal and loyalty, but to the fact
that she lives far from the "mad
ding crowd," remote among the
Mourne rangers, wnere news, line
the irladness of spring-time, is late
in comimr. Being unused and very
much overawed to address her
Malestv directly, she would like ex

HER REFORMED DIET.
Mrs. Xeivltcht Makes a Series of Abound
It's just awful how criminally ig
norant I've been regarding our food,"
aid Mrs. Newlight to her husband the
other day. "I can never be thankful
enough that I joined Professor Scurem's
class in domestic science. Myl It's a
wonder we're not all dead, ignorant as
I've been. There'H one thing sure,
George Newlight there'll bo no more
tomatoes on my table."
"Because Professor Scarem explained
to us today how tomatoes cause a mark
ed arrest of vital activity iu those who
eat them, and lio proved that tlie acid
of tomatoes acts almost like a poisou on
the membrane of the stomach. Then
I'm done with any berries that have
seeds in on my table."
"I'd like to know why?"
"You wouldn't ask if you'd heard the
professor's talk on appendicitis aud its
cause. A single dish of raspberries or
strawberries may bring on that awful
trouble. It's fearful to think of the risks
people will run just to gratify the palate.
And here we've always allowed our
children to have sugar and cream on
"What of, it:" '
"Well, you'd say 'What of it?' if you
could hear the professor explain how the
combination of oatmeal and cream aud
sugar causes dreadful gases to arise in
the stomach and utterly retards diges
tion. I've not the slightest doubt that
the awful spasm our little Mamie had
last year was due entirely to this cause.
Then . there's bananas. Why, George
Newlight, they're simply rank poison!
And you'll get no more white bread at
"Because there's no more nutrition in
it than there would bo in bread made
out of pure starch. Every bit of the nu
tritive element lias been refined out of
it. It makes those who eat it thin blood
ed." "Do I look thin blooded or as if I
lacked nutrition?" asked Newlight, who
'That doesn't signify. You don t
know what day you'll begin to break
down under such bread. We 11 have
nothing but graham or whole wheat
flour hereafter. And I've done with
coffee too. If you could see and hear
Profe ssor Scarem demonstrate just how
poisonous it is to the whole human sys
tem you'd shun it as you shun opium.
He says that cocoa shells is the only
real safe warm drink."
'I'd as soon drink dishwater," said
" You'd better drink dishwater than
your poisonous coffee. II you a only
take a little timo to study domestic sci
euce aud look into this food business a
little, it would be a good thing for your
health and the health of your family,
There's a lot more things we've been
jeopardizing our lives by eating in our
criminal ignorance, and I m going to
cut all of them off our list."

Aralstonite, writing in that excel

makes a few sensible suggestions in ro
gard to the diet that ought to be poftrd
in every household. He says that the
healthiest and purest lives come from
thoFe who do not eat meat before tbe
age of 15.
Potatoes, sliced thin and fried, are in
digestible. While tasting delicious, they
afford no real nourishment and cause a
derangement of the liver.
Cake clogs the stomach. All rich
pastry is poison to the liver. Soft cara
mels and creams are also bad for any
one with a liver at ell rebellious.
