    Epigraph: "According to Dr. Leonard Williams, of London, obesity is a most decided example of degenerative atavism. "The fat man," he says, "imitates the hibernating habits of his animal ancestors, accumulating vast stores of internal provisions in subconscious preparation for a winter's fast which never arrives." — Cable."
