ova They are said to come from
the heart, and this Is true, for no one
o or tenoned himself Into weeping
without u tlrst appeal through the
imnuliiatlon to some emotion. Tears
arc the natural outlet of emotional
tension. They arc the result of si

riiosc changes Induce profuse excre

In a mild degree some excretion Is al
ways In process to bathe the eye and
ole ir It of foreign matters. The con
trollimr center Is at a distance though
the secretion may bo kept up by the
small trace ot saline substance that
is present In tho tears themselves.
The lachrymal glands lie between the

Kuod Illustration of tho way In which
nervous libers are capable of convey
ing to a secreting organ exciting liu
IuKm from both sides ot a gland ly
ing in their course. Afferent nnd
vlfercut communications bring about
a .similar result. Internal nervous
vibrations and external excitation or
rollcx action cause a How of tears. In
both Instances the exciting Impulse
is a vibration. Jflobc, all tears, and
the unfortunate ncdcstrlan with a
minute particle of steel from tho rail
of an elevated road In his eye arc un
willing exponents of u similar pro
cess. They weep the same kind of
tirlny lluld, in exactly the same way,
thotuh from widely different rauses.
Imuglnatloti is nt times suillclcnt to
excite the nervous system into the
production of tears without external
aid or rcilcx. Writers mid readers of
good llctluii weep over it alike, and
tho actor loses himself so entirely in
the exigencies of dramatic art that
lie sheds real tears and the audience
.shed tears with him. Of a truth the
man who never weeps has a hard
Iteart, and the quality of his intellect
may also bo questioned.
Kmotlou, then affection, grief, anx
My, Incite to tears, not .pain or dis
comfort. The pangs of maternity are
tearless, though the Influence of ether
or chloroform may cause somo emo
tional dream that results in weeping.
In the earlier days of surgery patients
might hcreaiiuind utter such pitiful
cries as to sicken tho bystanderss
might even faint with pain, vet thcro
were seldom any tears. These, being
pure waves of emotion and a relief to
the heart, arc almost powerless to
mitigate pain. Perhaps one who
weeps from pain docs so from tin
coiicious though sclllsh pity In other
words, from emotion.
For the tearful, change of scene,
mental diversion and out door life
arc the best remedies. The author
quoted objects to alcohol as fearfully
injurious. It disturbs and unbalances
the nervous system, kcops up n maud
lin and pitiful sentimentality and
sustains tho evil. Alcohol is the
mother of sorrow. An opiate, how
over, prescribed at night soothes and
controls and really disciplines rolwl
Jous nervo centers. Sleep cures tears.
VJVnrt so docs Time, tho restorer. 1'er
tKous subjected to many and repeated
griefs forgot how to weep, and the
old as compared to tho young arc al
most tearless. Tears havo their valuo
in tho life of humanity, not ns tears
but as signs. They show that grlof
