At the time of the recent strike of the mine firemen in the anthracite coal fields hundreds o 4 mules from the va rious mines were brought to the gur fpce. Most of the animals had not seen daylight for many years, and some of .them had quite forgotten ail they ever knew about pure air, green grass, and blue sky, says the Phila delphia Press. It was a pathetic as well as an amusing sight, to see these animals turned loose to graze in the fields. The daylight dazed them, and it was with difficulty that they could be forced from the cage and driven to the fields, and there their antics were pitifully humorous. Crowds lined the fences each day. The mules, free from the driver and the whip, stood for a long time seem ingly afraid to move. To them the soft springy ground, so. different from the ties and rails and rocks of the mines, was insecure. The air, the grass, the space, the unbounded room to move, bewildered them. They walked slotv iy and with hoofs tapping the ground many times before a step was attempt ed, and it was hours and sometimes days before they gained sufficient con fidence to run and tumble and roll. Hut when they realized that the strange surroundings were harmless and actually enjoyable, they reveled in their new-found freedom, hee hawed, kicked up their heels, and gam boled very much in the manner of the schoolboy set free after a long and I arduous school term. The grass was the greatest mystery ! to them. Instinct doubtless told them j it was good to eat, smelled inviting, but ! it was so strange, so new that it was I long before they gained courage to : nibble and to eat it. I Air and light made many of the mules study for hours before they I knew that the novel world into whic'h they had been ra>'- p d was not n thing j of mystery, and that they fell better by breathing and could see better . . .......... „ ...... , alter the novelty bad worn off than j they ever could see in the dark and narrow passages of the mines. The extent of the fields, too, was a source of great wonderment to them. Here they did not knock their heads against the roof, for there was no roof; nor graze their sides .against, the rib, for there was no rib; only spaee above and about them, unlimited, in comprehensible space, a new, strange thing, with which most of them had to get acquainted by degrees. Those who had enjoyed the freedom for a day, as they met the newcomers, bumped into them, to ( >ee them lose their balance on the yielding ground, rolled under their nöses, kicked up their heels, and played with them much as a boy swimmer will play with a younger one. In the days which the strike lasted most of the mules experienced new sensations which they may never re peat, for they were hustled after their brief freedom down into the dark depths and narrow iron-paved pass ages where their only light is the faint flicker of the miner's fitnip. thefr air the gas and smoke-stained heaviness of the mine, their food the hay and oats which taste little like the green, fresh grass, and their gamboling con fined to the narrow space of a five-foot stall. GOOD WORDS FOR NEW BREAD. Fresh Loaves Not So Injorloos to the I Digestion os Is Generally Supposed, ! ■ A writer in the London Lancet dis putes the commonly received opinion j regarding the injuriousness of new bread. He says stale bread, when broken between the teeth, resolves itself into gritty particles, which, if they were not softened with saliva, would be next to impossible to swal low, consequently man thoroughly masticates stale bread and in doing so impregnates it with saliva, which par tially digests and adapts it to the ab sorptive action further on in the ali mentary tract. But new bread, being soft and plas tic, is more apt to be swallowed with out mastication, or, in other words, bolted. It is in this act, he thinks, that I the injury exists and not in the eharac ! ter of the bread. Hot rolls would be ; fust as digestible as stale ones if they b were properly masticated. He refer. in this connection to the dog as a teach er of an important physiological les son. This nnimal bolts meat, but eats bread, because the mouth parts are able to do little toward the digestion of meat beyond reducing it to a con venient form for swallowing. He. how ever, seems to overlook the fact that, the dog's teeth are illy constructed for chewing, and that this is most likely the reason for his expeditious disposal of meat. Another curious fact which he calls attention to is that stale bread is not more dry than new. This is shown by submitting stale bread for a short time, to a high temperature. Under such conditions it becomes soft and plastic, regaining its newness, and this despite the fact that some moisture must be driven oft in the operation. He thinks this is explainable on the supposition that in new bread there is free water present, but that in stale bread, while it is still there, it is In a state of true chemical combination. ______ _____ __________ ____________ In general, he concludes, it is a sound physiological plan to thoroughly mesti cate every morsel of food before aval lowing it. ! . I F00I) DEGRADATION. .1 Deterioration Has Been Going On , Steadily for Many Years. B'hy Homemade Articles ot Diet Aro Preferred to Thoee from the Store—BVect of Poor Pood Upon the Hater. There can be no doubt that during the last decade food has undergone a steady degradation, and this can not be without a demoralizing influ ence upon the human race. It will be noticed that by far the majority of cases of tampering with food re late to the substitution of a cheaper article rather than to the addition of an injurious substance. The common defense is that modern conditions of life make a substitution a necessity. It is difficult to see the logic of such a defense—nt least, in a number of in stances, says the London Lancet. It, is urged, for instance, that jam or marmalade cannot be made with out the addition of glucose, which pre vents .the preserve from crystallizing. Now long before glucose was n house hold word jams and marmalade were made—and good they were, too, con sisting entirely of sugar and fruit. In the same way"we are told that beer must be brewed from sugar and that brewing exclusively from malt pre sents untold difficulties. Again, golden sirup, which used formerly to be the refined sirup of molasses, consists largely now of artificial sugar, which is doubtless a more marketable prod uct, but is mat the same thing as cane sugar. Yet, again, we are told that the pub lic demand a perfectly white loaf of bread, the truth in reality being that machinery has produced a roller flour which is. an inferior thing to the now, we suppose, extihet stone-milled flour. Instances of this sort could be multi plied. We could wish that all those keeping house would make up their minds seri ously to return to the excellent cus tom of preparing many articles of food for themselves at home. Who does not admit- the charm of home made bread, or homemade jam, and simply because they are known to be , good materials which yield a palatable j product? Even in the ebuntry good,. Wide from an h'uest formula which has Hto.nl the test of time and from I Id-fashioned whenten bread, with that fascinating brown color of rich wheat en flour, containing the entire nutri tions portions of the berry and pos sessing that, delightful wheafen davor, now seldom, if ever, characteristic of bread, is difficult to obtain. The bak er's loaf is, as n rule, a tasteless, in sipid article, which requires a consid erable appetite hcf. re the idea of eat ing it can be entertained. No wonder that the tnste'for bread is steadily di minishing, and undoubtedly less bread is consumed that used to be the ease. As is well known, bread contains almost every element of food necessary for existence, but we should lie sorry for tiip person who tried t.o subsist entire ly upon the hindern uninteresting loaf made from blanched roller mill flour. It has recently been stated that the degradation of the teeth so noticeable among us now is due to roller milling having largely supplanted stone mill ing. We should not lie surprised. The degradation of food is a serious mat ter and is hound to lead sooner or later to the degradation of the eater. No movement could confer greater bless ing upon the people than that which aimed at bringing about a return to the older and more rational methods of preparing food. Let us se.e more of the homemade article than we now see: let us return to more palatable food and to food that will do more good than the machine-made stuffs and tlie endless series of substitutes. ! In allth? scfipols thr'.'UÇhontthç 'ajid ■ we would have the children taught the advantages of homemade food, ami how that bread, fruit, jam, or even ____ j iiePf mid oi*«r can be made at. home It would encourage a spirit of indus try. it would give us palatable and nourishing articles to eat or drink, and might have a wholesome effect upon those who seem deliberately to attenuate food as much as jxissibie or who pay mo regard to its naturally en dowed palatability. * Hcmnrkalile Memory. There died a few days ago an in mate of a ,Saratoga county institu tion, a resident of Waterford, who was possessed of n remarkable mem ory. He did not attend school while in his youth, but was possessed of in telligence which was deep and far renehing. One of his peculiarities was the exactness with which lie could teil the time of day. He never carried a watch, could not tell the figures on the dial of the town clock, yet if one asked: "Ed, what time is it?" the re ply would be as correct as the time denoted on the most costly and cor rect chronometer. He was also exact in his geographical computations, and could bound every state in the union and every county in New York state and give the population there of. He was a strict grammarian, yet he could not read, aud as an arith metician and lightning calculator he was not to be equaled in his native birtlvplaof. He had an aversion to cruelty of any kind, and had pre vented many Waterford boys from injury.—Troy Press. American Horae« for Japan.
