J A prolific cause of ehronte Indigestion Is eating from habit, and simply because It Is mesl time and others are eating. To est when not hungry Is to est without relish, and food taken s worse than without relish wasted. Without relish the glsnds do not act, the stomach juice are not freely secreted and the best of foods will not b digested. Many perfectly hsrmlets dishes ate severely condemned for no other reason than that they were esten perfunctorily and without relish. Hunger make the plainest foods enjoyable. It causes vigorous secretion and outpouring of all the digestive fluids, without a plentiful supply of which no foods can be perfectly digested. Walt for an appetite, If It takes a week. Fasting Is one of the saving graces. It has a spiritual significance only through Its physiologic Importance. If breakfast Is a bore or lunch a matter of Indifference, cut out one or both of them. Walt for distinct and unmistakable hunger, and then eat slowly and chew the food well. If you do this, you need ask few questions as to the propriety and dlgestlbllty of what you eat Some men use up so much nerve force In eating and digestion that they have nothing left with which to achieve those triumphs which, otherwise, would be essy to them. sal-Iva- AMENDMENT CARRIED.

The congressman fell with hi unconscious burden ami both sank through the floor to ulck death. What makes the tragedy unusually pathetic is the fact that the grandson was the grandfathers idol. ike two often slept together.
