There la aa interesting theory In
psychology known as the James-Langs
theory, after the psychologists, WU
liam James and C. G-. Lange.
This theory relates to the emotions,
and insists that, contrary to the popu
lar belief, the muscular and other
physical changes which accompany
the different emotions are actually
the causes rather than the effects of
these varying mental states.
That is, according to the James
Lange theory, instead of saying that
we weep because we grieve, we ought
to say that we grieve because we
weep. Similarly, we do not strike be
cause we are angry, we are angry be
cause we strike. And we do not run
because we are frightened, but we are
frightened because we run.
While few psychologists accept this
doctrine, all are agreed that there ls
a certain amount of truth in it, and
that it is entirely possible to produce
in oneself any specific emotion by ^1
tintarlly assuming the characteristic
physical expression of that emotion.
If any emotion can be produced by
deliberately adopting its distinctive
physical expression, it manifestly is
profitable to endeavor to produce in
this way the various emotions and
moods-joy, happiness, contentment
which are known to exert a favorable
influence over the whole organism.
Consequently it is not surprising to
find that many physicians who are
aware of this striking psycho-physio
logical fact are advising their patients
to practice smiling as an aid to the
preservation of health.
Smile even when you don't feel like
doing so. Soon you will find the sen
timents of joy, strength and courage
dominant in your heart.-H. Adding
ton Bruce in Kansas Gity Star.
POSSIBLE CAUSE OF DISTRESS
Tommy's Guess as to Alexander's
Spell of Weeping Showed He
The teacher was telling Ms class
about the conquest of Alexander the
Great. He made the tale a stirring
one, and at last reached the conquest !
of India. Wishing to impress the chil- !
dren, he said: "When Alevander had
conquered India, what do you think he
did? Do you think he gave a great
feast to celebrate his triumph? No; j
he sat down and wept!"
The children seemed to be a little I
disappointed at this childish exhibi
tion on the part of the hero; so the
teacher continued: "Now, why do
you think Alexander wept?" he asked.
Up went a little hand; but when its
owner saw lt was the only one in
"view, he hurriedly withdrew it.
"Come on now, Tommy," said the
teacher in Ms most persuasive voice,
"why do you think Alexander wept?"
"Please, sir," said Tommy hesitat
ingly, "perhaps he didn't know the
K^fany an unpleasant thing needs to I
be ?one in a pleasant way. Teachers, |
and parents, and people in business
life who are responsible for (he work
fit others must from time to time
apeak in criticism or point out how an ?
improvement can be made in the way
of doing things. Such a word of
criticism, or correction, or of sug
gested improvement can have the ef
fect of being either a shove down or
ft lift up. It can come to the one ad
dressed as a slap in the face, or as a
hearty grip of the hand. The word
can be spoken with a disarming smile
of reassurance, or a hard and discour
aging look of condemnation. And the
heartening, lifting, smiling word of ad
monition or suggestion brings a hun
dred per cent better response than '
the other sort; it gets the very results
that we are after, while the word that
antagonizes is liable to defeat the
whole,thing. Love is a paying prop
osition; unlove is a dead loss.
The Beast of Burden.
Professor Ward, social secretary of
the Methodist Episcopal church, in an
address In Indianapolis on "The De
mand for Leisure," said:
"Working hours should be judged
from* the standpoint of fatigue. Sta
tistics prove that the highest mortal
ity rate is invariably in the indus
trial sections because the Fest of these
workers is not commensurate with
their duties. A shorter workday is an
economic benefit to all. It means more
men, more machinery, higher stand
ards, increased demands, more produc
tion and the expansion of industries.
"The family life becomes a closed
book wfteif me ?nan returns horne dxsad
tired from his day's work. When he
reaches that stage he loses identity
as a man, rffisfoaird and father and be
comes the tfettst of burden."

Live Stock Was Cheap In 1194.
The increased cou ot living, though
the Increase is by ?io means so great
as we might have expected, lends an
interest to a volume Just issued by
the Pipe Roll society. From the in
troduction one gathers an idea of
prices in 1194. Certain land was to
be stocked and a price for each class
of stock was fixed. Oxen figure at
four shillings, cows a shilling less.
Farm horses were also four shillings
a head, pigs were a shilling, and sheep
stood at sixpence. Incidentally the
book proves the antiquity of the fa
miliar fine of 40 shillings, for it re
cords its imposition as long ago as
1186 on one who had overthrown a
pillory.-London Chronicle. ,
