While America as a country is dem
onstrating her ability to feed the
world, not a few American citizens
aro, unless the contemporary press is
fearfully and wonderfully misinform
ed, engaged in a heroic attempt to
consume the surplus provisions of
the continent and starve out the mil
lions of Europe. A Chinese resident
of Pioche, Xev.. for instauce, has dis-
! tinguished himself by eating a four-
and-a-half pound chicken and nine

ican of African descent at Brunswiek,
Ga., who had previously eaten eight
een shad at one meal, with bread in
proportion, was backed not long ago
to eat at a sitting twenty loavos of
bread and a dollar's worth of fat ba
con, and had made away with nine of
the loave3 and half of the meat when
the bystanders interfered. Henry
Edgerton, of Pearskils, L. I., is de
scribed as ha7ing ealen in an hour
and a half thirty-seven hard-boiled
eggs and two mince pies, the repast
being "washed down" the locution
is eminently proper when such a meal
is in question, but nowhere else, as it
makes one think of a sink with half
a gallon of ale. At Yandcrbilt Land
ing, S. 1., a tramp, to whom an un
suspicious philanthropist had given an
unlimited order upon a restaurant for
the assuaging of his appetite, devour
ed one plate each of mutton stew,
roast veal, corned beef with cabbage,
and roast lamb, two plates of salmon,
a plate of tomatoes, ajlobster-salad, an
applo pie and four hard-boiled eggs,
"topping off" with three bottles of
Scotch ale and a cigar. James O'Don
nell, of Madison, Iud., after eating a
quail a day for a month and then
doubling his ration, applied himself
seriously to such feasts of digestion as
the eating of two dozen goose-egs
in fifteen minutes, of agoo3C weighing
eleven and a half pounds, of five cans
of sardines in ten minutes and of three
dozen oysters rolled in brown sugar.
The late Peter Ellison, of Waterford,
X. Y. state, was a more accomplished
performer in a much more legitimate
field. He ate at one meal a twenty-onc-pound
turkey, with dressing and
bread, and wai named to devouer a
bird weighing twenty-three pounds,
but his opponent preferred to pay
forfeit. In a match at Snediker's
Long Island resort, the competttor to
take tho stakes who could eat the
most broiled spring chicken, this
great man was hailed the victor with
a score of 32 half-chickens, equal to
1G fowls. Mr. Ellison was not the
only great cater in Xew York. Tho
late Alexander Grant, of Kingston, 2s.
Y., never cared for a beefsteak that
weighed less than five pounds, and
when he dined demanded half a peck
of potatoes, a whole cibbage, a big
pie and a large pudding for his own
exclusive ealing,his.allowance being 20
pounds of solids and a gallon of coffee
or milk. Squire Carey, of Wallkill, is
credited with eating at one repast 400
clams and at another half a barrel of
shell oysters and thinks nothing of eat
ing half a gallon of raw oysters, with
crackers to match; his friends, who
know that his stomach is in tho right
place, will back him to assimilate six
quarts of these bivalves. Romulus
Lawson, of Allensville, X. C, is an
other famine-breeder of eminence, who
devours at one meal a three-eighths of
a mutton one and a half quarters!
two half-grown chickons, a pound of
bacon, five herrings, a ioaf of corn
bread, eighteen biscuits and a pound
of candy. Joshu Joynes, of Acco
mac Co., Ya., is a man of a stomach
almost as unbounded, who has, in an
hour and a half, disposed of a 'goose,
a chicken, fifteen pounds of pork,
twelve links of a Bologna sausage, a
peck of sweet potatoes, a dozen bis
cuitc, a mince pie and six cups of
strong coffee. For rivals to these
performers it is necessary to go back
to the beginning of the century in
England. Tho $Sporting Magazine re
corps that a wig-maker of Wantwick
ate in the space of an hour three
pounds of beefsteak, nearly a pound
of bacon, ten boiled egqs, a large
quantity of potatoes and a four-penny
loaf, drinkiug two gallons of ale and
porter during tho repast and seven
large glasses of brandy and water.
He was prepared to repeat the per
formance with the addftion of a wig
box full of pudding. A London cur
rier, wlioae name lias not ueen pre
served, made away in two hours with
three gills of lamp-oil, twenty raw
eggs with the sholls, a shilling's worth
of strong ale and a penny loaf soakea
in train-oil. Sporting annals tell that
Lord Barrymore, fired to emulation
bj' the account of a yokel who ate a
cabbage, a pound of salt and a cabbage-net
at a sitting, wagered that he
would produce a man who would de
vour a live cat, but it is not recorded
whether the match came off. Accord
ing to Fuller's "Worthies," Nicholas
Wood, of Harrison, in Kent, ate such
meals a3 a whole hog, with three pecks
of damsons, eighteen j'ards of black
pudding, eighty-four rabbits, thirty
dozen pigeons and a raw sheep, to
say nothing of the dinner prpvided
for thirty men. "Two loins of mut
ton and oue loin of veal," it is said,

agent, and a drayman named Camp,
who came into his place in Portland,
several years ago; tho latter Roscoe
declares ate twenty-nine plates of oys

ad lib., and devoured crackers and
pickles, only ceasing to eat because
his one-armed friend declined to pay
for witnessing any further continuance
of the gastronomic feat. A promi

Thirty Cents worth oflTemperance
Ten years ago says the Washington
correspondent of the N. Y. Simi, Se
leucus Garfielde left congress and be
came a professional gambler; lost
night he died in a little room over a
cigar shop. The story of Garfielde's
life is that of a man who surrendered
absolutely to the temptations of Wash
ington. He wa3 born sixty-one years
ago in Vermont, went to Kentucky
when he was a boy, was graduated
from Augusta Collego in that state,
and began his active life as a lawyer.
When he was thirty years old he was
a member of the Kentucky legislature,
and a year later he was commissioned
to codify the laws of the State. In
18G0 he was receiver of public moneys
for Washington Territory, and in
18G9, after serving three years as surveyor-general,
he came to congress as
delegate. He was hero four years
and when his congressional career was
over he was a moral wreck. He had
lo3t his ambition, and was as dissolute
a gambler as lived in tho District of
Columbia. Cards had come to be the
passion of his life.
It is said that he left Kentucky and
wandered off into Washington Terri
tory, because he saw his doom if he
remained among the genial poker
players of his adopted state. He
fought against what he feared would
become his ruling passion, even to
the extent of giving up what promised
to be an exceptionally bright future,
but his surroundings in Washington
finally overcame him completely. His
fellow congressmen ruined him, and
ho lived for the rest of his days on the
vices of public men. No life in Wash
ington was lower than his. The men
and women who were his companions
wero of the very lowest stratum. For
years the man who had once promised
to be one of tho cleverest public men
uf Kentucky had not a single intimate
associate who did not belong to the
dangerous element 'of society. Ho
was always, however, a leader among
the people with whom he lived.

Alaska Indiana .
With the exception of the Indians
of Cape Hope and Cape Prince of
Wales, the natives along the whole
coast are peaceable. Indeed, they
seem to have no weapons suitable for
war, all their implements being for
the chase or the preparation of food
and clothing. It hs been noticed
that the natives, both on the Ameri
can and Asiatic coast, have no relig
ious ideas and no conception of a God.
Darwin found the same state of mind
among the Patagonians, and recently
other absolutely Godless races have
been found. Among the Alaska
Indiani there is no idea of future life
or future punishment. Their idea of
retribution is confined to retribution
in ;his world provided tho injured
party is strong enough or has friends
enough to inflict retribution. If the
party committing, say, a murder, has
friends enough to protect hiin against
the friends of the murdered man, ho
feels happy for ho is not troubled
by conscience. Thero is no pre
tense of government among them,
and tho person who is at tho
head of the tribe expresses little or no
authority. He is merely respected as
the richest man, having accumulated
a few more plugs of tobacco and a few
more cant. of rum than any other oth
er person. But he dare not take a
chew of tobacco or go on a quiet spree
with his liquor. Ho hoards it up in
his tent, gloats over it, smells of the
rum and congratulates himself that
he is rich. But should another man
by a stroke of fortuno obtain a greater
store of goods than he has got, ho
would have to step down and out, and.
would probably celebrate his fall by a
grand blow-out in which navy plug
and watered alcohol would causo him
to forget his sorrows. Bulletin.
