Pratt Food Co Philadelphia Tho Original Slock and Poultry Poods of America In use over SO jears WHAT MEXICANS EAT. Grease Plnys an Important Part III Tl-eia Rich Uitlie*. The farther south one goes the more important part meat seems to play in the diet. In old Mexico the people of the upper class have highly seasoned roasts and steaks and gaijie three times every day. The roasts are stuffed with raisins, and a rich brown gravy is poured over them. Grease seems more indispensable to them than to the fur enveloped Es kimos. There are no broiled steaks, but in their place one is served with a half raw piece of tenderloin reek ing with grease and peculiarly flavored herbs. In that balmy clime, where the system would be so much better off without any meats, thousands of 6teaks are sold daily at 45 and 50 cents a pound. The poorer classes are forced to abstain from such and live on the coarse frijole beans and cold clammy tortillas, which are thin white corn cakes made from rye hominy crushed to a pulp. This forms their unvaried diet. On the aristocrats' tables are the most delicious fruits, chiramoyas, zipotes, mangoes and others which Americans have never tasted. The popular aguacate is. a cross between a fruit and a nut. It is a dark green and the flesh is about the consistency of ointment. It grows on a tree of unparalleled dark green foliage and is used often in the place of butter or is made into a toothsome salad. Rich soups, with bananas chopped in them, are served every day, and vege tables dressed with goat's cream are on their tables. At every meal during the year they eat the frijole beans, which have been dipped into a brown pottery bowl of boiling lard before they are brought to the table. The Mexicans cat enough lard to under mine the digestion of the stoutest be ing. Sirup is a great delicacy and very expensive. It is served as a sort of dessert in little china saucers and is eaten from spoons. Little bits of native candies are also served in sepa rate plates.—Farm and Ranch. Korean Slate Robes.

We ca an EVILS OF "GET THERE." The Danger* That I.nrk In Our Mcfl ern Hustling Methods. If wo may judge by its effects on those who obey its command, our slang motto, "(!ot these," is not an elevating or ennobling one. On the contrary, it is brutalizing. It appeals to the lower and not the higher instincts ig man. Yet this motto is quoted all over our land. It is demoralizing the law, it is creeping into the pulpit, it speaks from our schools, it looks out of the eyes of the ambitious, it undermines health, and it frequently destroys all nobility of cliarat The old fashioned slow and sure methods of attaining a competency are tabooed. The man who spends half a lifetime in making a fortune is regard ed as "slow." Short cut processes, nt any cost, are the demand of the hour. Prom the time a boy enters school he is goaded on by unnatural ambitions. He is not suiiated with steady, perma nent growth. He must progress by leaps and bounds. Boys and girls are encouraged by their parents to get ahead in their classes, even if they must burn midnight oil and risk their health in order to do so. It is pitiable to watch a typical Amer ican going to business in the morning. He is not content to sit quietly and re lax until the train carries him to his destination in the city. Long before that he leans forward in his seat and makes ready to leap off while the train Is moving. With every muscle tense, an anxious, worried expression in his face and a nervous twitching of the hands, clutching his cane, umbrella, parcel or the back of the seat in front of him, he wastes enough energy and strength before he reaches his office to execute the labor of half the day. The life of the average American is feverish, unhealthy and unnatural. We are in too great haste with everything and consequently lack poise, in the perpetual rush to "get there" we are in very great danger of losing our equilib rium.—Orison Swett Marden in Suc cess. PITH AND POINT. It is easy to "make fun" of people. We all promise more than we can perform. Consider the other side. You may be unreasonable. Don't forget that you are not as clev er as you think you are. Somehow the applause given at ama teur entertainments sounds terribly like relief. You know how selfish you are? Well, you can judge from yourself how sel fish others are. When a man says impressively and confidentially, "The facts are," etc., how often does he tell the facts? When the baby keeps a man awake at nights, he "casually" -mentions it to every one he meets on the way down town. If the pictures in the family album were taken as long as thirty years ago, looking through it is almost as interest ing as seeing a different tribe of the human race.--Atchison Globe. Girls With the Cal» Habit. One of the curiosities of New York city travel 011 Sunday afternoons is the^number of young women riding in hansom cabs. Sometimes there it re two in a cab, but more often they travel alone, and in almost every case they are the sort, of young women to whom riding in vehicles of any kind is a nov elty. Two of this tj'pe approached a cabman last Sunday and, after trying vainly to make a bargain with him, walked away with their noses high in the air. "They're just another pair of would bos," said the cabman in disgust. "They're the kind that think riding in a hansom is the real thing, and they save up all week to blow themselves to a ride on Sunday. They always try to beat us down, ami sometimes we let them do it—when business is bad."— New York Press. EdlSjle Blrd»' \c*Ntn. Coron, a little island of the Philip pines, is one of the chief sources from which come edible birds' nests. It has sheer wails of rock fronting the sea, In which are deep holes where a cer tain sea swallow builds its nest. The wild aborigines, Tagbanounas, collect the nests from the cliffs by means of long vine ropes, selling them to Chi nese traders, who export them to their own country, where they are consid ered a great delicacy. The nests are three inches long and bring $12 (Mexi can) for hunches of ten or twelve, ac cording to size. The gum of which they are largely composed is secre tion from the salivary glands of the swallows. A Good Time to Stop. When you have said what you in tended to say, stop when you have written what you intended to write, stop. A practice of this habit will ren der many after dinner speakers tol erable and many literary persons read able. Verbosity is the ruin of much that might otherwise be endured pa tiently.—Schoolmaster. All llic l^NKOnllalN. "Do you think they'll be happy now they're married V" "Well, I don't see why not.

A Medical SufirjreKtlon a« to How Y.t May Be Arrested. To drink the waters of the fountain of youth is still, in the opinion of some, within the range of possibility. A recent writer observes that man be gan in a gelatinous condition and ends in an osseous or bony one. He is soft in infancy lie is hard in old age. Aging is a process of ossification. After mid dle life -ias passed a more marked de velopment of the o.ssitic character takes place. The arteries become thick ened with calcareous matter, and there is interference with circulation, upon which nutrition depends. The whole change from youth to old age is one of steady accumulation of calcareous de posits in the system. Entire blockade of the functions of the body is a mere matter of time, and the refuse matter deposited by the blood throng the sys tem stops the delicate machinery we call life. The blood contains com pounds of lime, magnesia and iron. In the blood itself are these earthy salts. In early life they are thrown off in age they are not. Almost everything we eat contains these elements for de stroying life. Earthy salts abound in the cereals, and bread itself, mistaken ly called "the start of life," is one of the most calcareous of edibles. Nitrog enous food also contains these ele ments hence a diet made up of fruit is best for people advanced in years. The daily use of distilled water is, after middle life, one of tne most important means of preventing secretions and de rangements of health. Diluted phos phoric acid is one of the most power ful influences known to science for shielding the human system from the inconvenience of old age. Use it daily with distilled water and so retard the approach of senility. To retain per petual youth, avoid all foods rich in the earth's salts, use much fruit, espe cially juicy, uncooked apples, and take daily two or three tumblerfuls of dis tilled water with about fifteen drops of diluted phosphoric acid in each glass full. Thus will your days be. longer in the land.—Medical Age. NIGHT ATTACK AT SEA. Boarding HoNtile Sliip From a Fleet of Small BoatH. Imagine a hostile ship lying at an chor in an apparently secure position 011 a dark and cloudy night. There are just enough breeze and sea to make sounds 011 the water indistinct. Around a low headland half a mile away from the anchored vessel steal four or five boats, pullet! with niuflled oars and fill ed with armed men. They approach noiselessly. Perhaps they are not discovered and thus reach the sides of the ship. The next instant the armed men are pour ing over her bulwarks, and a desperate fight takes place 011 her decks. Per haps they are discovered before they reach the vessel's side. The alarm is given. The men in the boats hear it and lash their oars through the water in a determined effort to reach the ship before the rapid fire guns can open up on them. Flashes of fire illumine the night. The searchlights send out shafts of blinding white. The sharp peals of the six and three pounders, the rapid hoarse barking of Hotchkiss revolving cannon, the vicious sputter of Gatlings, break upon the frightened air. "(jive way with a will!" shout the officers of tile boats as the men bend to the oars and the light guns in the bows hurl their defiant answers back at the wall sided ship. As the boats sweep tip to the vessel's side gongs clang and rat tles sound calling away the riilemen to repel hoarders from the boats. If the boats' crews can board the ship aud clap down her hatches before the crew gets 011 deck, theirs is the victory, but if her secondary battery is manned and her riflemen stationed before the boats are alongside, then goodby to the boat expedition, for there is nothing more pitiless than Catlings and revolving cannon.—\V. J. Henderson in St. Nich olas. GrciVKOHie tVcilillng Among the lloongotes, a tribe of sav ages in the interior of Luzon, according to A. Henry Savage Landor, "the wed ding present "given by the prospective groom to his sweetheart does not lack iuaintness and consists of a human head, part of a breast and heart as well as a linger or two. Unless a man can produce these gifts he has to re main a bachelor, but these gifts are in variably procured. The 'inclined to wed' lies in wait in the high grass until an unsuspecting man, woman or child happens to go by, who a few minutes later is left dead upon the trail mintta the anatomical portions enumerated above." Tlie ProfcsKor Found Out. One of the world's greatest psycholo gists, desiring to know how the mind of a street boy would work if he ad dressed an absurd question to him, accosted a bootblack with, "Well, son ny, what time is it by your nose?" "Aw, gwim!" retorted the hoy. "Mine ain't riinnin'. Is yoursV" The professor took off his luit to the urchin with great gravity and departed a wiser man. His respect for news hoys is greatly increased. Limited UpKlre. The Sunday school class was singing "I Want to He an Angel," and the teacher said to one little fellow, "Why don't you sing louder, Johnny?" "I'm singing just as loud as I want to be an angel," answered the incor rigible Johnny. Sympathy is due any woman whose husband has dyspepsia. It closes up the paili to his heart.—Atchison Globe.
