Next, let us see If spirituality of the
highest order la Incompatible with the
moderate or sparing use of meat. Among
the names carried on the cover of the
Vegetarian Magazine, with the implica
. tlon that they are names of great men
who were vegetarian, are, Swedenborg,
' Krankltn and Wesley. Two of these
were unquestionably men of wonderful
spiritual power, but they were not vege
tarians. According to Swedenborg's bl-
ographers he "seldom touched flesh
meat." Wesley tried vegetarianism for
a time when he Was young, but he
abandoned It and foe many years most
; of his life. In fact he was a meat eat
er. - Franklin, greatest of Americans,
did the, same, bis vegetarian practice
being' comparatively brief.
Another man of the finest and seren
est type,, called "ethereal" by his con
temporaries, was Kalph Waldo Emer
son. IIS once tried vegetarianism for a
very short Ume, "but soon gave It up,
finding It of no particular advantage."
Yet there was nothing In the least
gross about Emerson. Had he ' been
more ethereal than he .was ho would
have been ready for Immediate transla
tion. The good arguments for vegetarian
ism, or for something approaching lt,
are: the argument of tho garden and
orchard, against the cow stable and
hencoop; work unions fruit and flow
ers, agaimst work in filth and stenches;
the certainty of pure vegetable food,
against the ever-present danger of dis
eased animal feed which at Its best
lacks the purity of fruit and vegetable.
These points can be enlarged upon
