DlKTKTlU,. lit was a* the little junction town ot Week Libertc, Iowa, at the indecent Lour of 3 a.m. that a traveller who had just arrived entered as alleged restaurant near the railway deoot and saidf Bring me some bacon and eergs.' "Got ye," said the young behind ibf Manger. In fifteen or twent) minuto.. the same young man returned with a plate containing something. The traveller examined it critically, making IN motions towards attacking the viands there dis played. Finally he pushed the plate carefuill, 4nd gently away from him and said: Now, son, don't think for a minute I've low my temper, for I have not done so. Don't think, I'm trying to roast rvu, either, for nothing i. further from my thoughts. I simply want to give you some fatherly and much-needed advice. This stuff you have Drought me is not edible Edible, you know, means that may be »;aton.' Johie bacon, for instance, is not cooked at all. it is out, to begin with, half-an-inch thick, m' ttead of a sixteenth of an inch thin, as it should be cut. Then it has simply undergone a Turkish I bath until its pores are nicely opened. It is no* oooked at all. That, my son, renders :t inedible, which means 'that may not be eaten.' If it had been rendered more it would have been edibility. Do not feel for a moment that I am die appointed. JE am not. I WM not hungry. I never would have come in here if I had beers hungry. I have been in here before. When t am hungry and should not eat I sometimes come m here to have my appetite rem,¡ed, which always promptly accomplished by one glance a. irhat you bring me when 1 order something that is elsewhere served in edible form. So I am no disappointed or in any way hurt in my feelings. I remembered that I haj at various time4 ordered almost everything else on your bill of fare except bacon and eggs in my previous. i,.i- voluntary visits to your junction. I was curious to know what you would serve under that head I in this ironical place. My curiosity has been fully satisfied, and I have had the worth of my money. Here is your quarter. I charge you aothing for my lecture on dietetics. Look that word up. Good-moyninp, my eon, for I think tear the train from Minneapolis whistling in." —Judge
