At Applied lo Thinking Tiro Opinions.
A well-known American writer pub
lished a book some years ago to sustain
a pica for sunshine in literature. He
held the view, as we remember it, that
the bright, the stimulating, and inspiring
should be made, so far as it can be
made, within the limits of truth, to fur
nish the dominant'notc of a writer. An
author has no right, in other words ,to
magnify darkness and discouragement.
If he believes with Schopenhauer, that
the present world is the worst possible
world, or, with Leopardi, that it is a
world of certain disappointment to
happy issues, there is all the more rea
son for pinking the best of a bad situa
tion, and turning to good account such
mitigation? of the human lot as offer
themselves by the way. There is a
great deal of literature, however, in
modern limes that discards this sensible
view, and makes the worst of things.
Many reasons may be urged to explain
this manifdstation, but one only seems
As civilization has gone on for the
past three hundred years, the evils of
bad government and distressing social
conditions have been either wholly re
moved or cliC greatly mitigated.
.Human happiness has been visibly in
creased; punishment has diminished its
former rigors; and pity for misfortune,
and charity for the criminal classes,
even, have become the controlling and
almost distinctive factors in all human
administration. As a parallel tendency
a paitly causative one, we might say
the senses and emotions in this age
have been made refined and delicate
to such n degree that human capacity
for pain, as well as for pleasure, is itself
what it never was bcfoie. To a sensi
tive mind, theiefore, puzzled with the
inscrutable and beating in vain against
the set limits to human knowledge,
there comes, at times, a burden almost
too great to be grappled with. And
this deeper sense of the unknowable
and the unsolvable, working upon cer
tain temperaments of the highest sus
ceptibility, turns the minds so tortured
into channels of pessimism and despair.
We see this in Turgeneff most dis
tinctly, perhaps, and he has elevated a
certain fashion of it almost into a cult,
with its school of adherents and imita
tors. It has tinctured the work of
Henry James; iflies like a deep shadow
upon the novels of George Eliot; and
it even tinges with a pathetic tender
ness nearly -all the poetry, and a large
part of the prose of Matthew Arnold.
Arnold's delight in Obcrmann sprang
from his active sympathy with this feel
ing; but in both these writers, it is not
unsufluscd with a glimmer, at least, of
faith. There are those who see, or
think they sec, that this pessimistic ten
dency is a mere transitory phase of men
tal weariness as it undoubtedly is
and who think the pendulum, in time,
will swing the other way, and bring hh
it the note of joy and hope. The human
mind has had to live longer, counting
. time by depth of experiences, in the
three last centuries of human evolution
than in the thousand years preceding
them. When it has had time for relax
ation it will return to its normal health.
For, certainly, whatever philosophy we
take, life was not made for despair or
for folded bands. And what we ask of
the writer and artist is, to tell us how
we may make it serene and happy.
Emerson's attitude here was specially
tanitive and tonic. Its contrast even
with Carlyle's, in that respect, shows
greatly to its advantage. No one can
read a page of Emerson without being
braced and uplifted by it What Plato
and Homer were, he tells us, we can be.
What they thought we may think. The
doorways of all possibilities stand open
wherever he (Mints. If he looks out to
Nature, he says, wc need not borrow
inspiration of others ; we may also have
our own. When lie sees the sky and
landscape beckoning to him in bright
nets, he exclaims: "Ghe me health
and a day, and I will make the pomp
of emperors ridiculous." "The grandeur
of our life," he says, "exists in spite of
u." His doctrine is that "a low, hope
less spirit puts out the eyes" and that
"scepticism is slow suicide." In an
other place still he condemns the dys
peptic, and will not have the fine morn
ing air polluted by his complaints. It
is not possible to escape evil; it is pos-
J tible to see it and to feel it without hav
ing it served up for us as a daily de
lectation. We do not like the apotlic
osis of despair in art, either, any more
than we like it in books. That man
who said he would not have Peale'b
once famous "Court of Death" hung
. ,up in his house for Ihe possession of
the picture, and many times its alue
besides, we always thought stiuck the
key-note concerning art in its relations
to daily life.
No great deed is inspired by despon
dency, In cheerfulness lie the roots of
power and achievement. The health
fulness of amusement is born of the
power of joy, If it i a delusion to
build castles in the air, it is one'of the
v delusions in which all healthy minds
indulge. The Alexanders and Napo
, the names which stand for sue-
1 and high endeavor which attain
Wfctttm thwt may tx in an tarthljr
immortality are men who have been
nourished by hope. No book which
does not appeal to this highest spring
of human action and possibility can ex
pect to live long, or be long remem
bered. It is one of the sterling virtues
of Scott's novels that they fall into the
vein of high spirits, and so communi
cate both youth and life.
We have said the emphasis is too
often put upon sorrow and disasters in
our modern treatment of life; and it is
so much so that the old-fashioned love
story, where everything ran smoothly,
or came out blissfully in the tnd, is no
longer to be met with. If we turn to
Ruskin, we find that, in spite of his
faith, his sad views and wailing tone
are constantly uppermost. In Dante
Gabriel Rossetti there is, with all his
compact strength and opulent sweet
ness, a morbid taint. One of the best
and most wholesome of the American
essayists told us the other day that he
could not read Rossetti 's poems with
comfort on account of the bad flavor
with which they are affected. The at'
mospnerc which surrounds them is
slightly sepulchral, or as if they had
been written in a cellar.
In Homer and Shakespeare, the
crcatcst of all, what pulse-beats of
health do we find. They do not skip
the tragedies of life, nor mince them;
but the deep affirmative vigor and the
manly touch put them in their right
perspective and place. Shakespeare's
hold on life brines to us a vigorous
perennial grasp. We can fancy that it
is he himself who speaks, when he
makes Caesar say:
" Let me have men about me that ate fat ;
Sleek-headed men and such as sleep o' nights j
Yontl' Cassius ha a lean and hungry look ;
lie thinks too much: such men ate dangerous."
And, as fatness and jollity were com
monly believed to go together, he must
have had a hearty human sympathy,
too, with Fallstaff.
"Sit not upon graves," said Mohamet;
"nor say your prayers fronting them."
The "Gedcnke leben," of Goethe, re
peats a similar admonition. If those
who write, or paint, or speak to us
from their experience or thought, have
no wholesome word to offer, it would
be better, often, if not alwavs. to be
suent. uoetiie said: "Uive me your
affirmations; I have doubts enough of
my own" and the modern pessimist
would do well to remember this.
The phrenologists.used to ascribe to
temperament great weight in their bal
ancing of character. Though other
traits may be equal, temperament mod
ifies them all. Perhaps we may con
sider temperament as the spirit of the
mind, which takes on a great variety
of expression. An old and whimsical
quatrain gave the sense of mental
diversity in this way :
".Many men of many minds,
.Many birds of many kinds.
Many fishes in the sea,
Many men who don't agree."
Among the many contrasts which we
meet with in the sphere of mental
activity, let us look for a moment
though we leave behind so much that
it would be profitable to pursue--to the
difference between the impulsive and
the sober-minded person. The man of
quick impulse is ready at once, in case
of need, with his panacea or his per
formance. He has his opinion at the
end ot ins tongue, on all occasions,
and will give it to you with the greatest
fluency. It seems as if he spoke and
acted without thought sometimes; but,
if he proves to be right, it will often
seem as if he were favored by inspira
tion. But it is important, above all
things, that impulsive persons should
have in the background a mental
potency that is indisputable, even though
its action has been so swift as to elude
the ordinary perception. There may
be a logicjfsome sort in what we con
veniently term "instinctive action," in
spite of our, inability to see orto follow its
course; but to have quick impulse,
with foolishness in the rear, must only
lead to misfortune. An inspire idiot
would not be a refreshing or edifying
Celerity of mental action when hap
pily exhibited as by the orator in his
speech, or by the general in an un
expected piece of strategy miy evoke,
to be sure, our admiration; but, on
habitual lines, or in the long run of oo
currences not exceptional, sobriety of
mind most impresses us. It has the
air of thoughtfulness and reserve. It
seems judicial. It confers dignity. It
commands res;ect. Notice your silent
neighbor who speaks rarely and with
deliberation ; who parts with his utter
ance slowly, as if it were oracular and
had a far off original, and you will feel
a sense of impressivenes that you can
not explain. These words, you say,
are not pennies of thought, which may
be' scattered with profusion, but the
gold which is dispensed with reluc
tance and care. It may not be true
that the sober-minded person is always
wise nor would the converge rule be
safe to act upon; et we are apt to con
nect a flippantly delivered discourse
with superficiality ; and to a moderate
manner we assigirdepth and weight.
In tha Britiah Parliaaunt bo Tory
speaker would dare to be fluent. The
very habit of contemplative slowness
of halting and drawling is the badge of
correct and conservative thought with
the orator who clings to old traditions,
and to state and church as they arc.
A fluent, impulsive speaker in the
ilritish House of Lords would be an
anomaly, for he would be termed a
democrat or a revolutionist. He would
need to be watched. When he arose
to speak the very pillars of state would
seem to the Tory mind to be in danger,
and would call for additional props.
It is true a later fashion has modified
this feelini: somewhat. The career of
John Bright in the commons and on
the hustings, has had its effect to secure
toleration for a style which once was
received only with contempt. Hut the
distinction is still preserved. Ifasjicakcr
talks easily and with impulse, he is
counted a radical ; if he halts and stam
mers, as iff in a profound meditation,
he has the past at his back he is sober
minded and respectable. But it is an
evidence of the rapid growth of new-
thoughts, in quarters where the moss
and rust of time and tradition cling, to
note that, when a bright American
speaker expresses himself now with fer
vency and quick spirit in England, he
is never without a large constituency
of admirers. The applause which James
Russcl Lowell's post-prandial perfor
mances invariably elicit, and that which
Charles Eliot Norton has recently
drawn forth, across the water, have
helped to puncture the notion some
what, that solemnity and slowness fur
nish the key to oratory.
But to return to sobriety of mind
and to its badge slowness and de
liberationwe might as well say that,
for the majority, these attributes are of
service. To the mediocre mind and
the majority is not above mediocrity
the appearance of a pause or halt is a
presumption of wisdom. It makes an
ordinary remark more dignified and
sedate. It was not bad advice in the
father who told his son who was greatly
bereaved in respect to his mental equip
ment, and who was going out to a party
where every one present would be his
superior, to " say nothing, my son, and
they will not find out you are a fcol."
It is true he took the hyperbolic'advice
too literally, and not cum grano salt's,
and they found his deficiency out.
But it was good advice if its subject
had only had sufficient imagination to
interpret the command. The 'Philadel

Edward Everett's is occupied by a war

The widow of the famous naturalist,
Claude Bernard, has a peculiar weak
ness for giving a home to stray and
sick dogs and cats. At her house at
llois-Bolombes, -near Paris, she has
collected oVer forty animals of each
kind, and their perpetual noise greatly
disturbed the neighbors. They have
often made complaints against her to
the uiayor,and finally brought an action
against hn which resulted recently in
her being condemned to pay a fine of
two francs and to leae her "home"
for dogs and cats closed by the police.
It appears that her mania for taking
