and we are now prepared to do
her of the system in vogue at cer
tain inebriate asylums that of mix
ing liquor with every article of food,
until the patient acquires a lasting
distaste for alcohol, She deter
mined to try that plan on Lycurgus.
She procured a gallon of the
worst whisky to be had, and put
some of it in the'old mans coffee, to
with. It had been his un-
custom to drmli but one
cup at a meal. That night he
passed" his cup back to be refilled,
saying as he smacked his lips :
"Better coffee 'nusual old gal."
Next morning she increased the
dose, He drank three cups, and
fell from his chair as he was reach
ing for the fourth. He slept until
noon, and went out to dinner.
There was beef soup and whisky,
half and hal f. Sniffles ate it all.
and said, as he wiped his mouth:
"You're git' n to be a better
cook'n anybody m'dear. But yer
didn't make soup 'nuff."
At supper everything was satu
rated with" whisky, and Sniffles ate
until he became helpless, and his
wife had to drag him to bed.
The gallon of whisky wras soon
gone, and the only change that
Mrs, S. noticed in her husband was
that while it lasted he came to his
meals with greater regularity than
"usual.- , ; . '
She is not the woman to give up
anything without a fair trial. She
got another gallon, and came near,
starving herself to death while she
fed it to Sniffles in everything he
ato and drank. His appetite in
creased at a fearful rate, and he
complimented her every day on her
newly acquired skill in cooking
The second gallon soon went the
way of the first, and after two or
three meals had passed without the
seasoning of which Sniffles had be
