Oh, this fact will bear repeating, that unless you're fond of eating, everything will seem discordant in this world that we infest; if your appetite is slender life will have no joy or splendor, and ypu'U think that this republic is skedaddling galley west. Brooding prophets, gloomy Daniels, say we're going to the span iels. government is all corrupted and we're headed for the dump; but If they were only able to get busy at the table, things would seem far more attractive, and their gloom would cake a slump. Nearly all man's earth ly troubles would be evanescent bub bles, could all people cat with gusto, morns and eves and sunny noons; could they shovel in their craters beef and beans and boiled potatoes, succotash and ham and spinach, mac aroni, pies and prunes. They could not be drawn with horses to >.ne courts to get divorces if their appetites were working in the good old-fashioned way; they would find this life less hollow if they had desire to swallow buckwheat cakes and eggs and dough nuts, scrambled rice and shredded hay. Life should be and is a bless ing. and the wails and sighs distress ing come from folks with balky stom achs. though they oft misplace the blame. Learn to eat with frenzied ardor, take a fall out of the larder, and you'll soon be quite enamored with this cheerful human game. WALT MASON. SPECIAL TERM OF COURT.
