When the Flem¬ings sent us the carrot, in the reign of Elizabeth, it is a pity they could not have deprived it of its fibrine texture, Cheap Giuseppe Zanotti, the drawback to be set against its saccharine nutritive- ness. As the Romans waxed strong upon the turnip, we may allow that it has some virtues, and that Charles the Firsts Secretary, Lord Townshend, Giuseppe Zanotti Shoes, did good service by re-introducing it to his countrymen. Like the Jerusalem artichoke, it requires a strong accompaniment of salt and pepper, Giuseppe Zanotti Sale, to counteract its watery and flatulent influences. As for radishes, he who eats them is tormenting his stomach with bad water, woody fibre, and acrid poison ; and if his stomach resents such treatment, why, Giuseppe Zanotti Outlet,it most emphatically "serves him right." As for cucumber, in the days of Evelyn, it was looked upon as only one remove from poison, and ib had better be eaten and enjoyed with that opinion in memory. It is a pity that what is pleasant is not always what is proper. Thus the cucumber is attractive, Heel Less Shoes, but not nutritive; while the onion. at whose very name every man stands with his hand to his mouth, like a Persian in the act of ad-oration, is exceedingly nourishing and wholesome. But I can never think of it, without remembering the story of the man who, having breakfasted early on bread and onions, Giuseppe Zanotti Flats, entered an inn on a bitterly cold morning, with the remark, that for the last two hours he had had the wind in his teeth. "Had you ?" said the unfortunate person who happened to be nearest to him: " then, by Jove, the wind had the worst of it!" An onion is all very well as an ingredient in a sauce, but to make a meal of jt! Well! it is on record that a dinner has been made, at which nothing was served but sauces. A dinner of sauces must have been quickly pre¬pared ; but, for quick preparation, I know nothing that can vie with a feat accomplished, on the 18th of March of the present year, Giuseppe Zanotti Wedges, at the Freemasons Tavern. The "Round-Catch-and-Canon Club" were to dine there at half-past five p.m. An hour previously, the active Secre¬tary, Mr. Francis, Vicar-Chora! of St. Pauls, arrived, to see that " all was right." He found all wrong. Through some mistake, no company was expected; and, there being no other dinners ordered for that day, the weary proprietors, and their chief " aids," were enjoying a little relaxation. Not only were the high priestesses of the kitchen " out," but the sacred fires of the altars had fol¬lowed their example.
