Return of the lrit!li Arctic llxpcditioii
The Uritish Arctic Kxpedition to

the steamt is Alert and Discovery, has
returned. Progress to the north pole
was found impossible The Alert and
Discovery lei t Port Faulke on .Iu!ygi.
lST-'i.and entered the ice olf Cape Sable.
After asecre ami continuous struggle
they reached the noith side of i.ndy
Franklin Hay. where the Discovery was
left in winter quarters. The Alert
pushed on and reached the limit of nav
igation on the shore of the Polar sea
with ire varied m thickness, being in
some places IaOteet deep. Theso-eilled
President's Land does not exist. The
Alert wintered in latitude s:: degrees
and -21 minutes. At this point the sun
was invisible U'2 days. The expedition
reached the lowest temperature ever
recorded 10 1 degrees below the freezing
point. Sledge parties were sent out in
various directions, but found no game
They suffered from scurvy, and some
died from cold. No Hsquimaux were
seen, nor were icebergs met w ith beyond
Cape Union. (J real dilliculties were
encountered as the expedition returned.
The Alert parted from the Discovery
in a gale, Oct. 1'Jth. Many valuable
collections were made for natural his
tory and science. All the 'members of
the expedition declare it impossible to
get nearer the north pole than their
party did, which penetrated within -too
miles of it. On their return from their
sledge journeys the men were in a help
less condition, and it was necessary to
draw some of them on sledges. The
planking of the Alert was much dam
aged by ice.

Two physicians of Cincinnati propose

Young People" (ale of Theiuele.
Now jierhaps you will say, this is a
dismal and unnecessary sermon to
leach to young people; they hae their
fathers and mothers to take can of
them; they d in'l take caie of them
selves. Very true; but tatheis and
mothers cannot be always with then
children ; fatheis and mothers cannot
always make their children lemember
and obey their directions; more than
all. it is very haid to make cluldien
realize that it is of any gieat impor
tance that they should kccpali the laws
ot health. I know when I wj-s a little
gill, when people said to me, "You
must not do thus and thus, toi if you
ilo, you will take cold." I used to think,
"Who cans tor a little cold, supposing
I do catch one?" And when I was
shut up m the house tor seeial days
w h a bad sole thioat. and sulfeied
boil ible pain, i never reproached my
self. I thought that sore throats must
come now and then, whether or no, and
that I must take my turns. Hut now I
have learned that if no law of health
were ever bioken, we need never have
a day's illness, might grow old in entire

fall asleep at last, instirr.i of dying ter
rible deaths from disease; and I am all
the while wishing that I had known it
when I was young. If I had known it.
I'll tell you what I should have done
L would have just tried the experiment
at any rate, of never doing a single
thing which could by any possibility
get any one of the instruments of my
body out of order. I wish I could set
some boy or girl try it yet : never to sit
up late at night; never to have a close,
bad air in the room -.never to sit with
wet feet; never to wet them, if it were
possible to help it; never to go out in
cold weather without being propeily
wrapped up; never to go out of a hot
room into a cold out-door air without
throwing some extra wrap on; never to
eat or drink an unwholesome thing;
neer to touch tea, or coffee, or candy,
or pie-crust; never to let a day pass
without at least two good hours of ex
ercise in the open air: never to read a
wold by twilight, nor in the cars; never
to let the sun be shut out of rooms.
This is a pretty long list of "nevers,"
but "never" is the only word that con
quers. "Once in a while" is the very
watch-woid of tempation and del eat.
I do believe that the "once-in-a-while"
things have ruined more bodies, and
more souls too, than all the otherthings
put together. Moreover, the '-never"
way is easy, and the "once-in-a-while"
way is hard. After you have once
made up your mind "never" to do a cer
tain thing, that is the end of it, if you
are a sensible person. Hut if you only
say, "This is a bad habit." or, "This is a
dangerous indulgence; 1 will be a little
on my guard and not do it too often,"
you have put yourself in the most un
comfortable of all positions: the tempta
tion will knock at your door twenty
times a day, and you will have to be
fighting the same old battle over and
over again as long :is you live. This is
especially true in regard to the matter
of which I have been speaking to you. i
the care of the IkkIv. "When you have
once laid down to yourself the laws you
mean to keep, the things you will al
ways do, and the tnTngs you will "never"
do. then your life arranges itself into a
system at once, and you are not inter
rupted and hindered as the undecided
people are. by wondering what is best,
or safe, or wholesome, or too unwhole
some at different times. From "A Para
ble," by II. II., St.Xichola for 'ovem
Komantic writers love to put appro
priate "last words" into the mouths of
dying men. The California stage
driver, who was "on the down-grade
and couldn't reach the brakes" is a fair
example, but here is one from New j
Orleans that surpasses it. The d ing ;
ioreman of a comicsing-room rallies
for a moment and remarks, "Lock up
t he forms. Sam. and let's go to press."

The Lesson of Wagner's Triumph.
We begin this article to call attention
more particularly to the moral lesson,
or the lesson of life, conveyed by this
great triumph. The jwer that rules
the world is the power of ideis. Any
man with genius enough to conceive a
vital and germinal idea, and vitality
enough to push it, is a master, sure of
his triumph. lie has that within him
which gives a crowning significance to
his lite. To (ossess a great idea is to
have a mission, it is to know what to
do. It is to have a path and a goal. It
is to have a perennial fountain of in
spiration. It is to see always before
one. not with the eye of faith but with
open vision, a consummate triumph.
The man who said he would rather be
right than President, chose simply to be
more powerful than President, offices,
positions names these are but shows.
The men who have ideas are the mas
ters of them all. and masters of their
kind. The o1itieian sneers at the
idealist as long as he can. and then he
turns and worships hirn. The conven
tionalist in art scoffs the innovator un
til the innovator's idea is emlodied in
some overwhelming form, and then he
throws up his hat for him with the
shouting multitude. Il.essed are the
men who have ideas. They are the
mover of the world. Dr. J. G. Hol
