Iu dietetic treatment of diabetes one of tho greatest difficulties experienced is to provide for the patient suitable bread. That in common use is, of course, forbidden, for if eaten, even in moderation, -it is BC-irccly^possibile to effect a cure. Much of tlie diabetic "bread"brTthe mar- = kct is very little, if any, better for the purpose th-n ordinary baker's bread. Many waya of .making, diabetic bread have been advised. A recent, contribution by Dr. O'Donnell is as follows: Six eggs are- thoroughly beaten, and then a teaspoonful of baking powder, or ita chemical equivalent, and a quarter of a teaspoonful of salt are added, and again tho eggs are beaten. This mixture, poured into hot waffle irons smeared with butter, is baked in. a very hot oven. For variety, and to make these biscuits Beem more lilto coarse bread, pulverized nuts of those permitted may bo added. They may be eaten hot with butter and cheese, but will remain good for a long time and nobody would suspect that they wero destitute of flour.—Boston Herald. OLD DAVY CROCKETT, M. C.

Tlio number of Jan. 23, 1820, contains tlio following Etory of Davy Crockett, which may not prove uninteresting just at this time: Davy Crockett, a Tennessee member of congress. Tho facetious Mr. K., of Ohio, tells a good story in which this congressman from . tlio. wild woods of Tennessee figures as the hero. The reader will supposo Davy returned from tho first session ho had tlio honor of representing tho people in,congress. Ho is to suppose, further, that Davy has fallen in with a number of his constituents at a raising, and is telling them of his visit to tho president. DINNEU AT THE \VIllTJi HOUSE. "The first thing I did," said Davy, "after I got to Washington was to go to the president's house. Think'a I, who's afraid? If I didn't 1 wish I may be shot. Says I, 'Mr. Adams, I am Mr. Crockett, from Tennessee.' 'So?' says he; 'how do you do, Mr. Crockett?' and he shook me by the hand, although ho knowed I went the whole hog for Jackson. If I didn't twish I may be shot. Not only that, but he sent mo a printed ticket to dine with him. I'vo got it in my pocket yet. [f I haven't I wish I may bo shot.", Pere the printed ticket was exhibited for the admiration of tho whole company.) "I went to dinner," said Davy, "and walked around the loug table looking for something that I liked... At last I took my seat just beside a fat goose, and I helped myself to as much aa I wanted. But I hadn't took three bitea when I looked away up the table at n man called Tash (attache). Ho was talking French to a woman on t'otlienside of the table. Ho dodged bis head and she dodged hera, and they got to drinking wine across tho table. If they didn't I wish I may bo shot. But when I looked .back again my plato was gone, gooso, and all.

Ho whistled anil phvyuil whilo ho waited, while other men would have Kuent the time grumbling ami growling over their disappointment in not making a sale. After the whistling solo ho very rarely failed to .make a satisfactory sale of goods. The stoniest hem-ted old merchant could not withstand such music. There was one old merchant down in Indiana who wa« a regular cn*tomi>r of our whistling friend, but-ho never gave him an order for goods until he had played tho harmonica and whistled several tune.-) for him. This, as 1 have said, wua tuuuy years ago. When om whistler made his last trip before leaving tbe road, this old merchant bought a big bill of goods and then said: 'My young friend, your music has been to mo ono of the sweetest things in life. For that reason I regret that yon arc going to Iravo thu i-o:td, but i want you to, promuo mo that if ever you come to Evansvlllo again you will como over to the store and play for mo. If I am not there my body will probably ho in tho cemetery, and In that caso I want you to go out to my grave and play "Dixie" and "Swcot IJy auJ By; 1 " ' "The promise was given, and a few years later my whistling friend and myself happened to bo in Evnnsville, and we called at the store of tho old merchant who had made tbo strcugo request. \Vo fouu'd tlio siju of tho former proprietor in charge of tho establishment, who stated that his father bail been dead some years. Among those present won the old bookkeciicr, who spoke of tlm promise made years before, and tho sou iiislstud.upon ita fulfillment. Tho family carriagu v.-at called and wo drove out to tho cemetery. A large granite monument mar|;eii the grave and tho whistler of tho old tinio sat down at tho base. He remained mleiit for a'few minutes, and then taking out his harmonica began to play 'Dixie.' It was a strange tuns for a graveyard imd'thoutfocc was confusing, but when ho had finished 'Dixio' ho bo^au to play 'In tho Sweet By and By.' I never heard that tuna, so |iluy«l before. .The man threw bis soul into the music, and if u message ever went from earth to heaven 1 bo- lievo that one did. Tho music \vassimply wonderful, and every one -*-as very much moved." TilB WniSTUNO SC'LDIER. "A good whistler Is, us a rule, tbe best of fellows," uald the i-ol.mi-l.

The swearing would cease, the boys would catch step, und they would go merrily along to the whistled melody. After abatt'o, when the men were despondent and discouraged, the whistler of tho regiment •would whistle tender, plaintive- tunes by tho hour,'and I know Ihut hu gave great comfort. "After tho battle ou Lookout Mountain' he was one of tho guards detailed to escort tho prisoners taken in tbe mountain fight down to Bridgeport, where they were to take the tralu for the north. There were several hundred of them, and the inarch down from Chattanooga to Bridgeport was a tedious one; but tbo slow progress brought about a close acquaintance between the guards and the prisoners, mill <>n several occasions during tho march the cheering whistle of tbe gay hearted man iu blue cheered tha heavy hearted men iu gray, and ttiey wero wont to call for music when tho circumstances of the inarch were more than usually distressing. "As they Btarttd across tho pontoon bridge at Bridgeport," tivo lines of gray in tho center and a thin line of. bliio OH each outer edge, tho whistler, in accordance with a very general call, started a melody biuteU p to tho occasion. Tbe men caught f4ep and went, swinging across the bridge, ignoring tho command of the officers t') chmigo step.
