WHY DO YOU EAT?
JL I'crtlnrnt yuiHtloii Vlnlntlon of Na
ture's Ijiw Tbo I'ciiulty.
"Why do you wit? This query, if re
sponded to by tho mnjority of peoplo on
ttlio spur of Uw moment, would, no doubt,
anesult hi answers us vnricd as tho ituli
viduals to whom it is projKHiruled. Why
do you eal? Truly n pertinent question',
.-and one which should Iks considered ns of
'sufficient importance for careful reilcc
'tion. A query of this character is tho
Bourcoof inoinentary surprise possibly to
.an intelligent person, for tho reason it is
-directed ton daily habit or exerciso which
dias become ho strongly automatic that
our attention is not llxetl in its consider
.ution. Wo arise in tho morn, early or
"lato as tho case may be, and eat; go to
Uabor for live hours or bo, eat again;
rBock recreation for tho ove and possibly
eat again, and finally retire to obtain tho
benefits of nature's sweet restorer sleep.
In and through all this tho healthy in
dividual uses no force in thought or at
tention, but is tho automaton. This is
.aa it should lx if nature and things
(natural were natural. Arc things in iia
tturo natural? Tho reply to this we think
can Iw found, to a largo extent, for tho
purpose of our paper, in tho replies our
query would bring forth.
Why do you eat? Tho dyspeptic says,
'"From necessity." Tho epicure says,
"'From a ruling desiro on tho part of my
sense of taste." Tho-glutton says, "To
.get enough." The Ialoring man says,
"To work." Tho natural man says,
-'To enjoy life; to live." Tito dyspep
tie'ri reply is a sad contrast to that of tho
.-natural man. Ask tho dyspeptic what
.'ho would do or give for tho privilege or
-ability to sit down at tho table hungry,
-actuated only by tho principle that
aictuates tho natural man, namely: "To
enjoy life, to live." Why. mctbinks, if
lie is not too far along in Ins distemper,
tthat expression of disgust and despair
-would change niton jiroittl gnu of happy
anticipation; tho dull, listless eyo bright
n with u gleam of its pristino intelli
enco, and there would burtt from his
lips tho exclamation: "Do or give? any
thing! everything!" Poor victim! In
aids exclamation is found the explanation
for his dyhjiepsia. It is just because ho
was at ono tiino nblo and did do "any
thing" and "everything" that today ho
Jf wo ask the epicure or glutton tho
vamo question as tho dspoptio, wo will
find that they are perfectly content.
They havo not violated law and order
long enough as yet; have not done ''any
.thing" and "everything" a sufficient
muinucr of times to reach that miserable
-existence allotted o tho dyspeptic.
'Their desires and wi.-hes tiro fully satis
tiled. Thoro conies a time finally for all of
these classes when the "dead line," so to
speak, is met. To halt nnd put a stop to
the reckless violation which has len go
'ing on means salvation. To keep on and
-cro.-u this dead lino means everlasting
misery. Tho salvation that is established
UTor those who meet this dead lino is, like
other salvations wo have heard of, estab
lished for violated law and order, not
;asy of attainment, but entails for many
"days upon the repentant victim a rigidity
of rule and persistence of purpose that
deprives life of most of Its pleasures and
Jeads tho poor victim in response to our
query to say, "1 eat from necessity."
Hois still a dyspeptic, notwithstanding
liis efforts toward . Ivation, and will bo
tuntll that salvation is fully attained. Hut
this physical salvation accomplished, is our
dj8ioptio leoo!iio the natural map? Can
lie, as can tho natural man. exclaim in tic
cents glatl and joyous, "I eat to enjoy
life; to live?" Let lid see. Wo live to
3carn, and, as truly, learn to live. Hx
'icrieucu is apt to determine man's no
tions. License is only jei nntted when it
la Bafo. Tho dysiK-ptio lias truly lived to
learn, if ho has not lost all reason, and
wo have no doubt but that the redeemed
d.vsjHtptio will testify that ho bus learned
-to live. Hut his exicricnco lias taught
him a lesson which will, during bis re
maining life, Ixj ever in mind, lie knows
Iwyond all doubt that there is no license
for him, and that a surely as he per-,
JiiiU any license, just so surety will there
eomo kick to him tho forerunners ot
thoso monstrous niberiea which led him
'to exclaim: "I eat from necjoaity."
