A sententious individual when inked

pemU on the liver." True enough!
whether you havo in your mind a per
son or an organ of tho body. So mark
you, before wo go any farther, that in
food there is both lifo and death. Tho
very elements that strengthen us, and
build our tissues, begin to poison us
unless they aro removed from tho body
as soon as their work is done, and in
this labor of removal, the organ men
tioned above does quiet, uncomplain
ing sorvico under great aggravation
from some of us, unholy caters of com
plex dishes. So far as our bodily lifo
is concerned, tbo world is nothing but
a vast feeding crib, whereat wo must
linger, if wo would live, nnd wboreby
wo are laying up painful burdens to
ourselves anless wo eat wisely and not
too well. But Just as tho child is dis
contented with creeping, after it once
stands upright, so the joys of the world
of thought mako us sink to a secondary
place tho joys of tho world of food, and
the "liver's" estimate of life and its
worth is settled by tho thoughts ho has.
If ho is satislied with tbo thoughts of
others and lots them pass through his
brain liko water passes through an
opon sluico-way leaving nothing bo
hind except a high-wator mark it is
not astonishing that ho finds lifo empty.
Thought, liko food, must bo mndo to
sui render to us nourishment, which
thereupon bocomes part of ourselves.
If ho takes of tho thought of times
past, holds onto them us though
thought never moved, swears by tho
knowledgo ho gained years ago, closes
his mind both against tho gaining or
giving of new, progressive, helpful
ideas, littlo wonder that lifo scorns liko
tho mockery of daylight to a blind
man. Thought, liko food, must bo
constantly added to and novor retained
indefinitely without roacting upon tho
world wo livo in or wo stagnnto in
mind nnd become sluggish nnd ulti

stuffed with opinions quicker than ho
