You Lave them on yourtablo ns desort, if you pU-nse at noon, and your tablo is loaded with them at evening, and you want little else but your bread and butter. ' Yonr family consumes, in odb-way or another, about eight quarts a day, and while thoy last no medicine for' bodily ailment is required, as a quart of strawberries daily will generally dispel oil ordinary disca&bs not settlod permanently in the system.
