The idea is not new that a family
physician should be pin ployed lo
kecj) n fumi'v in pood health, and
should he compensated for this ser
vice rather than for attendance in
sicklies?. Few diseases attack hu
man beings which do not give
warning by premonitory symptoms
which, if heeded, and promptly
treated, would 6ave the victim from
an acute attack. There is scarcely
anything which people, especially
busy people, and whose lives are,
therefore, of value to their families
and society, are so apt to neglect as
the premonitory symptoms of break
ing down in health. A slight cold
that results in a hocking cough is
neglected until it develops the teedB
of consumption. The malarial in
fluences which arc so widespread
are allowed to fasten themselves
permanently upon the system, in
stead of being vigorously dealt with
in the beginning, and the result is
months of ill health and probably
an undermining of the whole phys
ical constitution. People overwork
themselves and pay no heed to the
protest of bodily exhaustion which
warns them that nature will take
revenge for this imposition upon
her. "Women especially become the
victims of nervous diseases, which
render their own lives and the lives
of those around them miserable, nil
from neglect. It would, therefore,
seem reasonable that a change in the
method of society in the employ
ment of physicians (which should
employ them at a stated salary to
watch over the bodily health and
give needed hygienic instructions
lo families) would be a very sensi
ble one; and that the physician
whose patrons were kept in the
beat health thoul'd be the most pop
ular and the best remunerated.
But these arc days when people
must economize, and when a favor
ite method for securing and prac
ticing economy is combination for
me purpose 01 procuring any ile
pircd service a the lowest possible
rate. The latest illustration of this
tendency in the American mind and
methods h the formation in some of
our most progressive Eastern cities
of health societies. These are con
ducted on the principle that pre
vention is better than cure. The
families composing the society pay
so much a year into the treasury ot
the society, and elect a physician, lo
whom they pay, from the fund thus
created, a good salary. He makes
the enre of the health of these fami
lies his first concern, visiting them
etaledly, and observing for himself
what is the state of their health.
Ho also gives to them occasional
lectures on hygiene and dietetics.
Members of the societies are not
tempted to neglect slight indisposi
tions for fear of incurring heavy
doctor bills, but repair to the physi
cian for advice upon the first
s.wnptoms of illness. There is no
temptation to the physician to
"cherish" a case of sickness, for
his reputation depends on his be
ing able to keep his society in
good health, and especially to pre
vent severe attacks or disease. Sen
sible people would much rather pay
for health than for sickues, and so
the feeling is excellent all around.
St. Zouis Post.
The fashionable wife, says Lon
don Truth, looks on her husband's
money as spoil-something which
he wants to guard, and she to seize.
It is no joint property which it is a
much her interest as it is his to save
and use wiely; but an enemy's
possession which it will be her gain
to loose. A for companionship
tovjours peril rix pall, and an even
ing spent with her husband alone
counts as the ne plus trftra of deadly
dulness. Personal love for him has
died out. if even it once existed un
der the guise of pas-ion because ot
novelty and, whatever she may be
to others, her husband finds her
uniformly cold and repellent.
Motherhood is her bugbear; chil
dren unwelcomo intruders; and
there is no more miserable woman
extant than the fashionable wife
with a baby, that hinders her from
joining in the season's vulgar pleas
ures. Essentially selfish and shal
low, love has as little meaning for
her as the doctrine of dutv or the
glory of sacrifice; and those who
know her stand aside in a kind ot
wonder at the scheme of creation
which include, among its ofl'-els a
being without uses, and without
virtues a woman with presumably
a soul like any other, absolutely
destitute of thelovo which saves the
world from worse than death, of the
reality which seeks truth and lives
in it, of all nobleness of aspiration.
and all righteousness of life, a wo
man whose god is pleasure, aud her
sole religion, fashion.
"What !" said a young lady to a
sister companion, "you are-not go
ing to marry that tall, lean, slender,
consumptive -stricken fellow, are
you?" 'Yes, she is," volunteered
the young lady's little brother, look
ing up from his broken cart-wheel :
"she's going to marry him and use
him for a carpet-stretcher P The

through the same door.

It is with beauty of soul in the

We cannot keep too distinctly in
mind, how high the consciousness
of Christ stands above that even of
his most cnlightcued apostles.
How often does God intervene by
a miracle iu the wider sense in the
mere course of nature, by bringing
about a sudden natural death !

Regeneration is not perfectly ac

Pauiiuism in the strict sense ap

did it find its proper field of activ

of the Kingdom of God, which in
the circle of Jesus' ideas, stands so
prominently in the foreground re
cedes into the background in the
consciousness of his apostles.
There was not at the start a
Christianity, but only a Christ. He
had first to be translated into a
Christianity, and this was an irk
some and tedious task, iu whose
accomplishment Paul was incom
parably the most important person.
For the Regenerate there no long
er exists after death any further
occasion for sinning anew : for the

stopped up, with the putting off of
the material body, the primitive
principle of both.
The bodily torments of Hell will,
it is true, not be merely sensuous,
but. on the other hand, they will
not be wholly unsensuous, inasmuch
as the bodies of the damned have
not attained to pure and actual
spirituality. Their approximative
spirit will be ever more and more
dissolving into matter, and so they
will become ever more susceptible
of material pain.
If it cost the early Christians so
much to make up their minds to
break with Judaism, this, among
other reasons, was because they felt
it hard to detach Christianity wholly
from the political commonwealth,
and to base it upon an altogether
religious community upon a Church.
For without this the severance
could not be made. Of the conse
quences of this we in-iy well believe
men had a foreboding, even though
only an obscure foreboding.
Many people who have public
school teachers among thciracquaiu
tance arc firmly ot the opinion that
the schoolroom has a headache ss
tem all its own, and their impres
sion would be strengthened it they
were to interview boys and girls.
There is nothing strange about the
complaint; the only wonder is that
it is not continuous aud that any
body escapes it. With systems of
heating and ventilation that are al
most uniformly defective, and worse
yet, under the control of janitors
who have no knowledge whatever
of these departments ot their busi
ness, and who are as apt as any
other men to neglect or dispise what
ever they do not understand, many
of our schoolrooms are boxes al
most hermetically sealed, into which
hot air is being driven and com
pressed. The heat is frequently in
tolerable, the expired breath and
other physical emanations of the
children polute the air to a degree
extremely dangerous to health, so
teachers aud children, who, at nine
o'clock entered the room iu fair
health and spirits, emerge at noon
with listless step, aching head and
deranged vital organs. Should a
teacher's nature protest against
breathing iu poison and sweltering
iu it, up goes a window, and straight
way all the children in its immedi
ate vicinity are chilled and tempo
rarily relieved from one danger onlj
to submit to another. The condi
tion of the air in schoolrooms is no
secret to Boards of Education ; it
, ., , . . - ..I
has bcon the subject of somo 6tatis-
tics, by experts, which forcibly sug
gest the Black Hole of Calcutta; but
what is or has been done to remedy
it? IIor many teachers are com
petent to use such ventilating facili
ties as their rooms possess? Their
own frequent headaches and those
of the helpless children show that
the number is very small, and the
same e fleets indicate that but few
janitors need fear to compare their
records with that of the late lament
ed King Herod. iV. T. Herald."
The Western It uru!.
The Western Rural comes to our
table irom week to week complete
in all its departments. In matters
relating to the farm, orchard and
ardcu, it is unsurpassed, and yet it
does not ignore the family circle. It
is a fireside companion, much en
joyed by the women folks and the
children, each having a department
full of interest to them. The Rural
is increasing in circulation aud in
fluence, and deserves the patronage
of all interested iu the cultivation of
tho soil, or in increased intelligence
among the sons of toil.
