An eminent physician at New York, one Dr. Lambert, is as great an enthusiast in connection with what may be called “ the intellectual theory ” as Dr. Richardson is in matters hygienic. He recently gave what he called “ a brainial supper” to a party of friends. The feast was made up of seven courses, and among the delicacies mentioned in the long menu were toasted cheese, cold cabbage, cold fish and cream, lobster salad, stewed tripe, calves’ brains on toast, and ‘“wheaten grits in cream.’j We are not told what effect was produced on the intellects of the guests by partaking of these dainties. Perhaps their -wits may have been amazingly sharpened, and genius brought out where only dulness had previously shown itself. Be that as it may, it would seem verj' certain that, unless the digestive apparatus of the Yankee servants is vastly different from that of the human race, the company must have suffered severely from nightmare.
