Tfce Ulatorr of Bread. An antiquarian might make himself immortal writing a history of bread. The thing has been fried without success. De Gouet has attempted to trace the successive steps by which men were led to the discovery of bread making. As yet nothing definite is known on the subject. The use of unleavened bread was general in the day. * of Abraham ; and it is equally true that leavened bread was common in the times of Moms, for they prohibited the eating of the Paschal lamb with such bread. The Greek's supposed they were the first to discover the art of making bread.

That crime can be for wealth,1 Would feel e'en hunger's pain, Would eat a crust by stealth. Would let disease feed on my cheek. If gold would come for health. I would all this, and this has been The teaching of the world. For I have seen how sneering lips Upon the poor are curled. Been how detraction, shame and scorn By richer hands are hurled. It is not my nature—I Have tears for others' shame, And I have shared ray humble store With those of humble name. Who came to me in want and wo,. And had no other claim. None shares with m...
