The Doctor pulled a few of the delicious ...

The chupa is the eighth of the half-almud of Toledo, which is called gatang in Tagalog, and also gahinan, for it is the ration of cleaned rice sufficient for each meal of a man. The act of measuring in this manner is expressed by the word tacal among the Tagalogs.

... of the best of proverbs, 'qui fait le soldat.' 'It is the soup that makes the soldier.' Excellent as our troops are in the field, there cannot be a more unquestionable fact, than their immense inferiority to the French in the business of cookery. The English soldier lays his piece of ration beef at once on the coals, by which means the one and the better half is lost, and the other burned to a cinder.

Having no one to care for it, it has a hard time to make a living.

There is no use in attempting to induce agriculture in a country suited only for cattle raising, where the Indian should be made a stock grower.
