DlKTimu. It was aJ the little junction town ot Weat Liberty, Iowa, at the indecent Lour of >> a.m. that a traveller who had just arrived entered at alleged restaurant near the railway c1t,)j. and said, 4 Bring me some bacon and eggs.' "Got ye," said the young aa-t behind the inanger. In fifteen or twenty minuter the same young man returned with a place containing something. The_ traveller examined it critically, making no motions towards attacking the viands there dis played. Finally he pushed the plate carefully and gently away from him and said: Now, son, don't think for a minute I've iow my temper, for I hare not done so. Don't thiol, I'm trying to roast yw, either, for nothing »t further from my thoughts. I simply want to give you some fatherly and muoh-needed advice^ This stuff you have Drought me is not edible Edible, you know, means that may be caton !hie baoon, for instance, is not cooked at all. It is out, to begin with, half-an-inch thick. stead of a sixteenth of an inch thin, as it should be cut. Then it has simply undergone a Turkish bath until ii6 pores ar* nicely opened. It is no* oooked at all. That, my son, renders it inedible, which means 'that may not be eaten.' If it haa been rendered more it would have been nearer edibility. Do not feel for a moment that I am die appointed. I am not. I was not hungry. ] never would have come in here if I had been hungry. I have been in here before. When 1 am hungry and should not eat I sometinies com# 1ft here to have my appetite removed, which ;4 always promptly accomplished br one glance what you bring me when 1 order something tha» in elsewhere served in edible form. So I am no disappointed or in any way hurt in my fooling*. I remembered that I had at various tirnet trdered almost everything else on your bill of fare except bacon and eggs in my previous, iq. voluntary visits to your junction. I was eurioui to know what you would serve under that, head in this ironical place. My curiosity has been fully satisfied, and I have had the worth of my money. Here is your quarter. I charpe you aothing for my lecture on dietetics. 1,(01\ that word up. Good-morning, my son, for j. I think 1 bur the train from Minneapolis whistling in." --Judge
