 "I solemnly believe that ninety per cent of the existing despondency, despair, and what is called religious insanity, is caused by the abuse of the stomach. He who looks through smoked glass sees nothing bright and pleasant. The beauties of nature and of art all look stained and gloomy. So the dyspeptic Christian views God, Christ, angels, and heaven through a brain beclouded by continued abuse of the stomach.  

But the man who is ignorant of the facts in the case cries out that those who have undertaken a reform in diet, are starving themselves to death! Let us see. My own table is furnished fourteen times each week from the following varieties, prepared by an intelligent cook, in every inviting form:-  

Vegetables. - Potatoes, turnips, parsnips, onions, cabbages, squashes, peas, beans, etc.  

Grains. - Wheat, corn, rye, barley, oatmeal, rice, farina, cornstarch, and the like.  

Fruits. - Apples, pears, peaches, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, huckleberries, grapes, cranberries, raisins, and tomatoes."
