“Dough” and Digestion

“Dough” and Digestion.

What profitith a man if he gain the whole hog and loseth his digestion? This is a back-bite at big business, for the flesh-pots mean as little to the dyspeptic dough-getter as cat's meat to a pussy-willow or gum-boots to a “goanna.” There have been awful examples of successful victims of money-myosis surrounded by all the outward and visible signs or inward and invisible sins subsisting on the fare of a shipwrecked sailor because the stomach had failed to follow the ambit of the ambition, or stand up to the pull of the purse-strings. Thus does hope interred make life listless, for life without hope is as hopless as a brewery flea.
