The experienced dairy editor of Moore's Rural New Yorker, in discussing the value of cheese for food, in answer to some objections upon its extensive use therefor, says: Cheese is not an unwholesome food, when "eaten in quantity sufficient to make its nutrition felt." The fact is very clearly proved in the case of the English laborer who, when abundantly supplied with cheese, can get along with little or no other animal food, and retain his health and strength. Cheese is a great blessing to poor people, who cannot afford to use other forms of animal food. A recent letter from a correspondent in Paris, speaking of the scarcity of animal food, 8ay that living upon bread and rice, I am faint from morning till night, and that no one can imagine what the privation from meat or cheese is.

without they try it." It is admitted that cheese eaten in small quantities, is beneficial "as a corrector of other food," and yet this consumption, it is claimed, would not help the manufacturer much. Now the cheese manufacturers would ask for nothing better than such a consumption of cheese, if it were general among the people. Say that each individual should take only one ouuee of cheoBo per day, or a third of an ounce at each meal, simply as a "corrector of other food," and this small quantity distributed among our forty millions of inhabitants would make an annual consumption in the United States of 910,000,000 of pounds, or nearly tour times tho product annually made in the whole country. But suppose we deduct ten millions of inhabitants as non-consumers of cheese, and allow only half an ounce per day for the 40,000.000 of people, and wo have an annual consumption of cheese amounting to 312,000,000 of pounds, ments, and provided also that the time from the vines, with half an inch of Assets ,750.000.00 PH CEN I I NS It A N(-E JO PA affidavit.
