KEVIN Ei EKTIOX,
The European countries ishich
border on the English Channel are
suffering from a blockade of trallic,
by reason of an extensive strike of
dock laborers. It is oftentimes
really amazing to think that cani'al
and labor cannot get together long
enough to realize their reciprocal
importance. Would that the old
fable which the wise Boman philos
opher related for the mutual bene
fit of the Plebeians and Patriciauu
of the seven-hilled city, could b.
burned into the minds of men today
in a "realizing sense." There is a
wonderful lesson in that old f.Mv cf
the tummy and the membrra. The
hands, eyes, ears, mouth, teeth and
throat decided to starve the tummy
out, because they themselves had
the drudgery of life's duties to en
dure, while the tummy's programme
consisted merely in enjoying three
meals a day. So the hands refused
to manipulate a knife aud fork, the
eyes always overlooked the tabic,
the ears declined to har the dinner
bell, the mouth locked the door and
threw the key away, i t-eth re
fused to grind, and the throat
boycotted the swallowing. They
soon had tha tummy in the agonies
of starvation, but the throat began
to po-ch, the teeth to drop out, the
mouth to paralyze Lhe cars to go
deaf, the eye3 to go blind, and the
hands tc shrink into the .ihpe of
the Bkeleton bone. They held a
caucus with all haste, and unani
mously 1 resolutions declare
ing that it was breakfast, dinner and
supper time right now. The voice
feebly proposeed an amendment, ad
ding the words "and also lunch,"
which was accepted without debate
The tummy was then invited to ad
dress the conyention, and cn its ap-
the man got vory wet. The
wetting gavo him a cold. The
cold, neglected, developed to
a cough. The cough sent- him
to a bed of sickness. A doso
of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral,
taken at the start, "would
have nipped tho cold in the
bud, and saved the sickness,
suffering, and expense. The
household remedy for colds,
coughs, and all lung troubles ia
