PAGES FROM A CATALINA JOURNAL (Continued from Page 4, Column 3) He does not have the patience to study a long menu, but says, "Let me have something to eat, and that at once; no matter what, sCit be legiti- mate food." I think that disgust for food and disgust for life arc both symptoms of a certain invalidism, or disease; and that perfect health makes a man enjoy any sort of food, and any sort of life. This world is very al~petizing to one "who is hungry for life. I can eat it in large slices, without salad or dress- ing, when I am feeling well. But let me have a fit of the blnes, and the fairest portions of the earth are in- digestible. I refuse them peevishly, and want something else,--what,'I do not know. Let us have health, brothers, and the world will be a great ripe melon, which we will sit down to with a zest no school-boy ever felt. We shall eat thereof and be glad, and suffer no cholic. Health is the one sauce for the world. Eaten with that, it is infinitely relishing; but without it, most of us find very poor eating in- deed. After dinner I continued my journey toward the Isthmus, rowing in the face of a stiff breeze and contending with heavy seas. I rowed thus for perhaps three nfiles, and then concluded that I had gone as far as nay business called me. I brought my boat up to the wind, and shook out nay leg-of-mutton sail, and was soon speeding away for home. Running before the wind, I saw that my mast was being overstrained, and was preparing for a break when suddenly I heard a crash, and the mast was broken in the middle. I had taken off my heavy shoes, and disen- gaged myself from the ropes in ex- pectation of a breakdown, and so was in nowise put out by the sudden mis- hap. I quickly gathered the sail and top of the mast in from the water, anti before old Neptune knew what I was doing, had them safely stowed in the ~'I BE WELL HEELED boat, and was pulling for cahn water iLve U 01a _ s make your repairs to'your just behind a jutting point of rocks.
