Apple Dumplings and so on.


Apple Dumplings and so on. "The man who refuses to eat apple dump- lings cannot have a pure mind." So declared a famous vegetarian a cent- ury ago. He had a horror of most meat dishes, especially of minced veai. Perhaps somebody who reads this little lecture may be able to tell me whether apple dumplings have not largely gone out of fashion in England. If so, it is a pity, for they are good food. when light; but they are starchy, all the same and demand a healthy and vigorous digestion. Therefore, even at the risk of being suspected of impure mindedness, the majority will have to say "No" to the average apple dumpling. Ah, dear me I It is the doctors and physiologists who say that the British stomach ds no longer the mighty and fear- less machine it was in the days of our grandfathers and their fathers. We have a bigger and more dangerous navy, it is true, but in good sooth, my dyspeptic friends, a stomach that is able to dissolve a Card- boiled dumpling without a pang, 1* a bet- ter bulwark to the nation than monstrous guns and walls of steel. The patriots who talk like this man, are they note legion ? "Ask yourself the ques- tion," as the Deal boatman put it. He says, as does Mr Thomas White, of Oadby, that after every morsel he ate there arose great pain in his chest and stomach. In October, 1891, he was seized with rheumatism, and confined to his bed six- teen weeks straight away. He couldn't move hand! or foot, or bear to be touched, he says; and for six years following he remained in a pitiable con- dition—too weak to work and too wretched to care much what became of him. Then a brother-in-law, Charles Norman, vho had been cured of chronic indigestion by Mother Seigel's Syrup, told Mr White that he believed it would also cure rheuma- tism, as he had learned that the one was the cause of the other. It was an illuminating id ea, and Mr White acted on it. "After using this remedy for a week," he says, "I was decidedly better. Presently I could eat well, and all food agreed with me. The rheumatism disappeared root and branch, and I got back to my work strong and well!; and up to this date I have had no illness, either dlyspepsia or rheumatism. It is my opinion that by using Mother Seigel's Syrup a man may safely eat what- ever he likes and stand no chance of harm." Thomas White, London Road, Oadby, near Leicester, tfuly 18th, 1899. Hardly a doubt of it. The history of Mother Seigel's Syrup for 30 years is in the box to testify to it. Disease succumbs to this preparation as a lot of Algierine pir- ates would melt before the onset of a British Naval squadroil.
