Ou'iloniling the Stomach.
"Youth is the time " remarks an em
Incut physician, "when gluttonous hab
its are acuired." And though he
thinks that it is not always wisu to em
ploy ridicule in educating young peo
ple, yet lie would use it to make glut
tony appear as disgraceful its it rcallv
is. Excess in eating is, however, ni
laughing matter.for it is a vice. Amonjf
the Jews gluttonv was classed with
drunkenness, and the son who became
an habitual glutton, or drunkard, was
stoned to death. The Israelites were
punished when they liecame gluttons on
the occasion of thu miraculous fall of
ipiuils. "The Ird smote the jieople
with a great plague." Tho place where
the dead were buried was called, as if
to mark the punishment of sin agairne.

a greiter curse than these pnysical
evils, they form the habit of self indul
gence. The young should bo taught
that, while overloading the stomach is
a physical sin, which nature will puyi
tsh, temperance in eating enhances f7iei
enjoyment of food.
