FOOD LN JAPAN.
NOTES AND COMMENTS OF AN OF
Comparatively Little Animal i'ootl Katen
The FixhI of tlie 31ast'.' Nine
Tenths v. tuiiie i:irt
on K.N' ami ili-altli.
Ttie Americ-Jtu rousul general at Yoko
hama not long ago gave a brief review of
the food habits of the Japanese that is
interesting, both as regard the facts and
the comments of the oltlcial observer. He
gaid: So universal has meat-eating be
come among the dominating races
that the praises of beef are
rung -wherever Occidental civiliza
tion has gone, and - it is not only a
popular belief, but an accepted scientific
opinion, that any well-fed people must use
Animal food considerably; to have meat to
eat frequently i3 reckoned the best proof
that the common laborer in a country is
well favored. Japan, with a population
of 86,000,000, equal to that of the United
Kingdom, engaged in very diversified in
dustry, presents a complete exception to
the rule as to food. The scarcity of ani
mal food, in ponsequeuce of the non-intercourse,
policy, and. its almost unnecessary
prohibition, by the religious faith, have
made a nation of vegetarians, except as to
fish, which is not forbidden as ' flesh. '
"Of the -46,000 head slaughtered in
1880, the foreign residents and the foreign
marine consumed more than half. Out
side of the treaty ports, mutton and pork
are almost unknown; there is an abun
dance of fowls, both wild and barnyard,
but the common people can not pay for
them. The t .pply and variety of fish,
however, are very large, over 200
kinds being used as food, and the gov
ernment Is actively working to increase
both. Already probably one half the peo
ple eat fish once a day, one-quarter several
times a month. Still, the food of the
masses is more than nine-tenths vegetable,
and the list of this has been made long by
their necessity-sharpened wits. Of cereals,
rice is the most important, occupying
more than half the tilled area in summer;
barley, millet, wheat, rye, and corn rank
next in the quantity produced. There
are said to be some 250 varieties of rice
seed; a hulled bushel weight sixty -two and
and a half to sixty-five, and it contains
almost ninety per cent, of starch. The
millet is 55 to (: per cent, -starch and
sugar, 11 to 13 per cent nitrogenous mat
ter, and about 1 per cent, of nutriment
in all, being almost equal' t the best
American wheat. Buckwheat, containing
82 to 95 per cent, of nutriment, is also
grown largely on the lighter soils.
"Beans and peas are more extensively
cultivated in Japan than anywhere else,
and there . are over forty varieties.
One the soy bean or "Nirva mume
contains. 20 per cent. fat and
60 of nitrogenous matter, starch,
and sugar, and closely approaches
meat both in composition and in its action
on the body. The sweet potato, being
very prolific and cheap, ranks next to rice
lr, importance, 16,000,H)0 bushels being
. the last reported production. A large
white radish, called daikon, growing up
to a yard In length and fourteen pounds
in weight, is a very common and popular
food, but the common potato i3 little used
by the uavives. A surprisingly large list
of wild plants and sea-weeds is utilized as
"The place of sugar is considerably sup-
filled by a preparation made from mil
et or rice and malted barley, the
starch of the rice or millet being con
verted by the malt, and the product vary
ing from a thick sugar or honey up to hard
candy, being cheap and in large consump-.
tion. Sauce, sa-called,- enters very largely
Into use with food plants; its name is
ehoyu. known to us as soy. The kind
almost exclusively used is made from
wheat and the shoyu bean ground in equal
parts. It is boiled and steamed, then left
to ferment; after being then dried in
the suu it is allowed to stand
awhile in a cask of t-alt water, is then
strained and Is ready for use, the refuse
being fed to cattle. Its flavor is pleasant,
and it is said to be the basis of most of
the celebrated sauces put up in England.
44 The proof of the pudding being in the
eating, it is interesting to note the testi
mony that the Japanese a race of good
proportion, physique and strength, w-hoso
comforts are much less, and whoso
exposure is much greater than in case of
western nations live an average life, in
length and health fully up to that of the
European or American, with a table ex
penditure of not more than one-sixth or
one-seenth that of the latter. "

Mr. Toodles Now see here, what use
can you make of a doorplate with that
name on it, "Thompson with a p. "
Mrs. Toodles r-AVell, you see, my dear.
Mr. Thompson across the way might get
a divorce and yoi and I might get a di -vorce,
and Mr. Thompson and I might get
married, and then how handy it would be
to have it in the house.
Mr. Toodles By jove, never thought of
that. Nothing could be more natural.
