His One Yearning. [Newspaper Article] — Gisborne Gazette — 20 March 1914

His Ono Yearning'. It is sometimes argued that a sici< man's craving for some particular arti cle of food ought to be taken as siiili cient evidence that he needs it, and will be benefited by it; but those who have had experience in the sick-room will be slow to attribute anything like infalli bility to invalids' whims. ^Constance Cary Harrison, in "BatKes and Leaders of the Civil War," s;iy - that many wounded and sick soldiors were brought into Richmond, wb-ro everything possible was done for their relief. Her mother urged upon one sufferer, --a gaunt and soft-voiced Carolinian fr nn the "piney woods district," a del irate trifle which had been sent in from seme neighboring kitchen. "Jes' ez you Ray, old miss," was :hc? weary auswer. "I ain't a-contradic in' you. It mout be good for me, but my stomick's kinder sot agin it.

Kvervlndy that knows a boarding liouse can rea.ize that tt*n boarders with largo appetites arc very hard upon the profit of the concern. She tried, like a thorough business woman, a'l sorts of ! methods to check these ungodly appe tites, with no avail. One day she happened to tell her 1 family doctor of these ten hungry men and how they worried her, and he said immediately: "Why, I can give you an easy remedy for that." She told him that she would be very much obliged to him for any help that he could give her on the subject, and moreover said that it would be worth a great deal of money to her. "Well, said he, -'next week bake a lot of lemon pies and see that those ton boarders get their share of pie." "Is that ail your prescription, doctor?" said the lady.
