The Pugilist’s Diet

THE Trainer of a Pugilist consulted a Physician regarding the champion’s diet.

"Beef-steaks are too tender," said the Physician; "have his meat cut from the neck of a bull."

"I thought the steaks more digestible," the Trainer explained.

"That is very true," said the Physician; "but they do not sufficiently exercise the chin."
