THE DAILY EVENING TELEGRAriL PHILADELPHIA, MONDAY, APRIL 23,1866.'
Cariosities ot Enting. The following, from Halt's Journal of Health, will be read with interest by those who are obliged to Ftudy close economy in their diet: An old b( au, formerly veil known in Wash ington city, was nectiHtotiicd to cat but one menl in twenty-lour hours; if, alter thi, he had to go to a party and cat a second dinner, he ate nothing Bt ull the next day. lie died at the ago ofjeeventy. A lady of culture, refinement, and unusual powers of observation and comparison. Deenme h widow. Reduced lrom alllueuee to poverty, with a large family ol pniall children dependent upon her manual labor for daily food, bho mado a varietv of expeiiinents to ascertain what arti cles could be purchased tor the leant money, and would at the name time "so the laithest," by .keeping her children longest from crying for something lo eat. She loon niscovered that when they ate buckwheat cake and niolasfles they were quiet lor a longer time than after eating any other kind of lood. . A IdiHtinguiHhcd Judge of the United Slates Court observed t hut when lie took buckwheat cakes for breakfast, he could sit on the bench the whole day without being uncomfortably hungry. If the cakes were omitted he felt obliged to tako a lunch about noon. Buckwheat cakes arc a uiiiveisul favoiite at the winter breakla8t table, and scientific iuvetigatioo and analysis have shown that they abound in the heat-foroiing principle; hence nature takes away our appetite tor them in summer. During the Ir'j-h famine, when many died of hunger, the poor were found Fpcnding their last shilling lor tea, tobacco, and spirits. It has also been observed In New York by those con nected witb charitable institutions, that when money was paid to the poor they often laid out every cent in tea or coffee, instend ot procuring the more subf-tantinl . lood, such as meat, or flour and potatoes. On bung reproved tor their apparent extravagance and Improvidence, the cry was univeifaily in both cases identical; their own observation hart ?hown thorn that a penny's worth of tea, tobacco, or liquor would keep oir the sense of hunger louacr than a penny's worth of anything else. Scientific men express the idea by saying, "Tea, like alcohol, retards the metamorphosis of the ti-sues; in other words, it gives fuel to tho flame of lite, end thus prevents it lrom consuming the fat and Meh of the body." It a person gets into the habit of taking a lunch between the breakfast and dinner he will soon find Himself getting faint about the reeular luncheon time, but let him be so pressed with important engagements lor several days in suc cession as to take nothing between meals, it will not be long before ho can dispense with his lunch altogether. These thincs'seeiu to show that, to a certain extent, eating Is a mere habit. Whole tribes of Indian hunters and trappers have been known to eat but once in twenty-four hours, and that at night. Liszt's Coronation Mass was performed lost month at the ciiurch ol st. hustacue, runs, in the oresence of the comiioser.
