The Spirit is in concrclo Life and

is essentially implied in the idea of
Light, to be Life.

It U a matter for infinite thought,

The unity of the human race is
grounded in the unity of the Idea of

Undoubtedly God must first have

The I&iiitl ot'Kt'Iigion Wanted.
We want a religion that 6oftons
the steps and attunes the voice
to melody and fills the eyes with
Buusliine aud checks the impatient
exclamation nud harsh rebuke a
religion that is polite, dcfcrcnatil to
superiors, courteous to inferiors and
considerate to friends a religion
that goes into the family and keeps
the husband Irom being cross when
dinner is late, aud keeps the wife
from fretting when the husband
track the newly washed floor with
his muddy boots, and makes the
husband mindful of the scraper and
door-mat ; keeps the mother patient
when the baby is cross, and amuses
the children, as well as instructs
them ; cares for the servants besides
paying them promptly, projects the
honeymoon into the harvest moon,
and makes the happy home like the
Eastern fig tree, bcariug in its bo
som at once the beauty of the tender
blossoms and the glory of the ripen
ed fruit. We want a religion that
should interpose between the ruts
and the gullies and rocks of the
highway of life and the sensitive
souls that arc traveling over them.
laletructa.lilitr of Enjoy
ment. Mankind is always happier for
having been happy ; so that if you
make them happy now yon "make
them happy twenty years hence,
by the memory of it. A childhood
passed with a due mixture of ra
tional indulgence, under fond and
wise parents, diffuses over the
whole of rife a teeling of calm
pleasure; and in extreme old age,
is the very last remembrance which
time can erase from the vminds of
man. No enjoyment, however in
considerable, is confined to the
present moment. A man is the
happier for life, from having made
ouco an agreeable tour, or lived
for any length of time with pleas
ant people, or enjoyed any con
siderable interval of iunoccnt pleas
ure; which contributes to render
old men so innattentive to the
scenes before them, and carries them
back to a world that is past and to
pcenes never to he renewed again.
How to get rid of bad habits Ex

Bob Iugcrsol! says: "I despise a
stingy man. I don't sec how it is
possible for a man to die worth fifty
millions of dollars, or ten millions
of dollar?, in a city full of want,
when he meets almost every day the
withered hand of beggary aud the
white lips of famine. How a man
cull withstand all that, and hold in
the clutch of his hand twenty or
thirty millions of dollars, is past in
comprehension. I do not tee how
he can do it. I should not think he
could do it any more than he could
keep a pile of lumber when hun
dreds and thousands were drowning
in the sea. Do you know I have
known men who would trust their
wives with their hearts and their
honor, but not with their pocket
books not with a dollar. When I
see a man of that kind, I always
think he knows which is most valu
able. Think of making your wifo a
beggar! Think of her asking yon
everyday for a dollar or two dol
lars, or to humbly beg for fifty cents.
"What did you do with that dollar
I gave you?" Think of having a
wife that is afraid of you ! What
kind of children do you expect to
have with a beggar and a coward
for a mother? Oh, I tell you if you
have got but a dollar in the world,
and you have got to spend it, spend
it like a king; spend it as though it
were a dry leaf and you the owner
of unbounded forests. That's the way
to spend it. I had rather be a beg
gar and spend my last dollar like a
king, than to be a king aud spend
my money like a beggar. If it's got
to go, let it go. Get the best yon
can yourself. Wheu you used to go
courting, how nice you looked I Ah,
your eyes were bright, your step
was light, and you just put ou the
very best you could. Do you know
that it is insufferable egotism iu you
to suppose that a woman is going
to love you always, looking as had
as you can? Think of it I Any
woman ou earth will be true to you
forever when you do your level

Mr. Webber states that in Thibet
he had lived for months together at
a height of more than 15,000 feet
above the level of the sea, and that
the result was as follows : His pulse,
at normal heights only sixty-three
per miuutc, seldom fell below 100
per minute during the whole time
he was at that level. His respira
tions were often twice as numerous
in the minute as they arc at ordina
ry levels. A run of 100 yards would
quicken both pulse and reputation
more then a run of 1,000 yards at
the sea level, aud the higher the
level the greater the difficulty of
walking or running.
He crossscd the shoulder of the
Guria Mandbata at a height of some
20,000 feet and found the greatest
difficulty in getting his breath quick
ly enough ; had frequent and violent
headaches, aud found that his native
guides and companions suffered
much more even than he did. Lon

own house on fire that he may.burn
2. The cuvious man who cannot
enjoy life because others do.
3. The robber who, for the con
sideration of a few pounds, gives
the world permission to hang him.
4. The hypochondriac whose
highest happiness consists in that of
rendering himself miserable.
5. The jealous man who poisons
his own banquet, then cats of it.
G. The miser who starves him

opportunity of proving him a liar.
In the schools of Germany the
scats aud tables are so arranged that
the pupil never faces the wiudows,
but only has the side lights from the
left; and as a light simultaneously
thrown from two sides gives an in
terference of shadows, it has been
strictly forbidden to build school
rooms with windows on both sides,
such illumination having also
proved injurious to the eyes of the
pupils. We may add to this advice,
says the Medical Journal, not to
place the lamp in front of you while
at work in the evening, but a little
on one side, and never to neglect
the use of a shade so as to prevent
the strong light shining in the eyes.
This is especially to be considered
at the present time, with kerosene
lamps, with intensely luminous
flames, becoming more common.
A Xcw York Police Justice has
established the precedent that, as it
is customary for dealers to exchange
articles, a person cannot be arrested
who offers a merchant, in payment
for articles purchased, something
previously purchased at his store,
refusing to give up the later pur
chases or to pay for them in mon
ey. A little boy when picking the
drum-stick of a chicken, swallowed
one of the tendons which are so
numerous in the legs of a fowl, and
was neay choked. The tendon
was, however, extracted with
great difficulty from the little fel
low's throat, when he exclaimed:
" Oh, mamma, it wasn't the chick
abiddy's fault; it was because cook
forgot to tako off his garters !"
