MOUTH TO BAIU
Js ty, .pcak no ill. a kindly word
Caa never leave a btitig behind ;
Aui. oh. to breathe eich tale we've heard,
la far beneath a noble mind ;
For oft a better sevd is sown
By cboosiug thus a kinder plan ;
For if but little pood we know,
Let's speak of all the goed we can
Give me the heart that fain would hide,
O Would fain another's fault efface ;
How can it please our human prida
To prove humanity but base ! '. .
No? let it reach a higher mcde,
', A noble estimate of man ;
Be earnest in the search of good,
And speak of all the best we can.
Then speak no ill, but intent be
To others failings as your own !
If you're the first a fault to see,
Be not the first to make it known,
For life is but a passing day.
No lips can tell how brief the stay ;
Be earnest in the search of good,
And speak of all the best we may.
The oldest mention of butter (and
even that is an obscure one) is found
in Herodotus, who fn ys the Scythi
ans " stir the "milk of their ranrt'S,
nnd separate that which rises to tho
surface, ns they consider it more de
licious than that which remains below
it." This perhaps goes no farther
than cream, but Hippocrates, who
wrote 400 years before Christ, and
was almost contemporary with II' r
odotas, writes rf cream, that when it
is violently agitated, "the fat part
which is light, rises to the surface j
and becomes what is called butter.
The heavy and thick part, which re
mains below, is kneaded and dried, J
and is known by the name of hip j
pace. The whey or serum remains
in the muddle." Here we have but
ter and cheese satisfactorily produced
nt least two thousand years ago.
But it does not appear from Hippo
crates, nor, indeed, from any of the
ancient writers who mention it, that
butter was ever used aa an article of
q ordinary food. That learned Greek
phyicta speaks of its emollient
qualities, and prescribes it externally
as a medicine. Strabto says that the
Lnsitan'ans used butter instead of
oil; and JE ian mentions that the
E st Indians anointed the wounds of
their elephants with butter, Galen
writes that, ' in cold countries,
which do not produce oil," butter is
ustd in the baths." Pliny reconv
mends it to be rubbed over children's
gums in teething, and also for ulcers
in the mouth. Plutarch tells of
Spartan lady who Ftnelled stron"
of kutter. by which it teems to have
been ud as a pet fume or ointment.
It is never mentioned by any Gretk
or Roman writer, as used in coockery,
r at lh table.
1 he people of Germany appear to
have known the use of butttr at
Tery early period, though how furly
is not known, lu the colder climte
both butter and cheese could readi'y
be ra.ide and preserved, while in
Italy, Spain and other portions o
boutneni ii,unpe, they are not even
now largely produced. As a sub
stitute, the people of those countries
have always been accustomed to the
liberal use of good od, both for cook
in purposes and for the table. In
ine soutn oi frnce butler is sold in
the apothecaries' shops, for medicina
purpose4, mid one ot the grievances
recounted by trawlers in Spain is
tSatothey can seldom meet with but
ter. In warm countries it is difficult
to preserve it for any length of time,
and it appears certain that the only
butter the ancint nations possessed
was in an oily sUite and almost
liquid. The Arabs are required to
be the greatest consumers of hotter
in the world. A cur full of melted
butter is an ordinary morning drink
among all classes. B.iekhardt, the
Arabian traveler, says that the ap
petite for its is universal, and the
poorest persons will spend half their
daily income in order that they may
bavo butter at every meal. They
m iko it exclusively from the milk of
heep and troats, while other n turns

An important railroad decision
