The oarkness deepens as I rrope,
Afraid to fear, nfntid to hope:

Uufathotned purpose to luttill,
"Not as i will."
Blindfolded and alone I wait,
Los seems too bitter, pain too late;
Too heucy burdens jn the load.
And too lew helpers on the toad:
And joy is weak and grid is stroiitr.
And ear and days o Ion?, so lonjj;
Yet this one thing- learn to know
Each day more urrIy a- 1 jro.
That I am triad the j;ood and ill

N'ot as I will."

TTlic Self-Kldent Absurdity of an English
Gentleman's Theory or Self-Adaptation
of IJIrJs and Flowers.
A late number of the Pall Mall Ga
zelle contained an article by an English
gentleman of some note as a naturalist,
which was niainly about humming
birds and llowers. It gravely asserted
that, through ages, each has reacted
upon the other. In so inan words it
claims that the birds have adapted
themsehes to the llowers by acquiring
which must, of course, mean by the
conscious laborious endeavor to that
end through generations of birds, at
last crowned with success long and
daring barbed tongues, and that the
lowers, on their part, have "repaid the
ompliment b adapting themsehes, in
return thiough generations of llowers
to the habits of the birds, and 'ac
quiring1 corresponding!- deep carol
las." Further, it is represented that
certain species of llowers "devote
themselves exclusively'" to certain
species of birds, and the reverse. It is
gravely said of these llowers:
Thev lengthened their tubes out of all pro
portion to the tongues ol nectar-sucking in
jects so that only the faoied birds them-r-eie-
could obtain access to the coveted
honey with its aLcompauiug swarm ol ll.es
So aga n we are told:
In eveij case, the tube of the flower CAactly
coriosuoiid-. in length to thr beak and tongue
of the pec.al huuuuing-bird, etc.
If this were avowedly pure fancy, we
should have nothing to say about it.
If a poet were dreaming thus in mu
sical and measured numbers, we might
admire hi- song. But for a learned
student to invite men to believe such
stuil'as "advanced ' natural science, is
another matter altogether. Let us see
wnat coiuut-on-. are necessarily involved
in it, anu now impossible uiey are.
In the first place, it involves a brain
or some equivalent Jinjjaratus- hav
ing the power of thought, and able, not
merely to reflect upon brds, llowers
and the'r relations and what Lefits
those relations, but also able to survey
the whole scheme of nature "n order
to judge what style of bird or liower
may promise to suit those relations
In the second place 3t involves a will
power strong enough at least to make
the persistent effort to mod.fy its situa
tion. In the third place, it involves con
tinuity of philosophic teaching and
meditation as to all this from genera
tion to generation, on the part Loth of
the birds aud the flowers.
In the fourth place, it involve? a con
trol on the part of the-e generations of
humminir-birds en the one side, and
flowers on the other, by intellect and
will, of their physical conditions and
capabilities which goes quite beyond
any such control possessed by man.
Our Saviour said: -"Which of you by
being anxious can add one cubit unto
his stature"; and human liistory maj
be defied to produce a single instance
in which a man bora with a pug nose
has been able by his own will-power
however energetically put lorth to
change the same to the eagle-beaked
Roman A'ariety. Yet here we hae a
Jtheory that a bird can elongate its bill
and a flow er its corolla, by wishing and
willing to do so.
2sow, if all these things :ixe true, and
Ibirds and llowers have, so to -speak,
walked along that track, where are the
foot prints? If humming-birds and
trumpet-flowers are furnished with
brains to this extent, where are ithose
brains located, and why lias no scalpel
ever revealed them? Will the Pall lia'l
writer be so good as to how the world
iome faint traces of cephalic ganglions
in the heads of the binte svnd the calyces
of'the llowers; or will he allirm that
the bird? and the flowers aro or
ganized on a higher and more refined
plan, aud one less traosahle in Its ma
terial connections, than are men.
Still further, when our u-iscacre com
mences :to explain, will, lie be good
-enough to state what was the 'need of
.all this -clongative pffori? By his
.hypothesis, the Trochili began with
.short bills which, through generations
of persistent pushing, on ligntoe, o to
.speak, they .have extended to thcjpres--ent
length: and the Lonieera; began
with short erollas, which, through ages
.of ceaseless .training, ther fcave .eloa
gated to the emergency. hat we .are
anxious to knew is, the need of all 'this
-toil; and wliy both parties to tie work
were not relatively as well off when
jthey .began as tkey can be now?

THE UNIVERSE STILL SAFE.
Slow ProeiVM of the Liberal la th
Mightiest Marement In the World.'
A year ago the National Liberal
League pledged itself, through its
energetic secretary, Mr. Samuel P.
Putnam, to effect a "chssge of front
of the universe." The particular
cause of dissatisfaction with ihe uni
Terse seemed to be that it was in a
position unfavorable to the "deveiop-j
jBuit ol social life, the scientific cult-1
I ure both of old and young, the cultiva
tion of the spirit of humanity, the at
tainment of art and poetry and noble
morals." The universe, so to speak,
was born under the innuence of an
unlucky star; and, if we rightly un-
mense procedure," as announced last
year, was to kindle the "tires of
Liberalism " from the "Atlantic to the
Pacific."' The plan was inaugurated
under the most auspicious circum
stances, as it would seem. Indeed,
the "front of the universe" had al
ready begun to move, and it only
needed a little more help from th
Liberals to swing around into the post
tion designated by 2Ir. Samuel P. Put
nam. We have the renort of Mr. Samual

the universe maintains a very stubborn

Mr. Samuel P. Putnam believed it
would, and there is a tone of disap

been ab!e to move six new leagues into

we are told. Manv of their Leagues
are without life, and manv members
seek their own happiness and care
nothing about the universe. "This
spiiir," say Mr. Putnam, "largely pre
vails," and it can only be overcome by
"knowledge." Another great difficulty
is the "subtle and immense ecclesiasti
cal tyranny which still pervades the
length aud'breadth of our land." 13ut
the greatest difficulty of all, we suspect,

Roberts, the great Eugiish authority,
says that heart disease is chiefly secondary
to some more fatal malady in the blood yr
other vital organs. That is, it is not the
original source of the fatal malady.
Ihe work of the heart is to force blood
into every part of the Sf stem. If the
organs are sound it is an easy task. If
they are at all diseased, it is a very, -very
ham task, lake as an illustration: ihe
kidneys are very subject to congestion
and yet, being deficient in the nerves of
sensation, this congested condition is not

unknown even to physicians, and if it does
not result in complete destruction of the
kidneys, the extra work which is forced
upon ihe heart weakens it every year, and

secondary to the renal trouble.
There is a general impression that the
medical profession is not at fault if it
frankly admits that heart disease is the
cause of death. In other words, a Cure of
heart disease is not expected of them !
There may be no help for a broken

there is a help lor tuu kidney disorder

heart trouble, and if its use put money and

him in our town last week, waiting about as lively at
