THE CAIRO DAILY BULLETIN, SUNDAY JANUARY 20, 1873..
Those of our readers who havo kepi
pac with tho recent Investigations of
cUiicq have doubtloss disco vored that
many of the moit Important of these havo
been undertaken with the view of de
tormlnlng whethor tlioro be any Uw of
mutual dependonco between tho mental
and physical f 'fees, or, ai tho formula hat
it, whether these forces ore correlated, a
term belt defined by the ilmple queition,

arm In lifting a wolcht, tho expansion of

direct relation or resemblanco to tho
mental force which Is exerted or brought
into play when man reasons or remem
bers 7 in ordor to establish or disprovo
any auch theory, It Is evidently essential
that tho chemical and physical constitu
tion of the brain, tho seal of nil mental
action, should lo carefully determined.
To discover tho slmp'.o constituents of the
brain, a chemical analysis was nil that
wasneoded; but, whan it became evident
that In order to understand tho working of
tho brain wo mutt sco It work, the
problem becamo more Intricate and diffi
cult j yot It has bocn finnlly solved by tho
following delicato experiment: A part of
the bony covering of a dog's sl:ull was
carefully removed, and tho surface of tho
brain laid barn; In this oponing, which
was circular and of tho proper sizo, a
watch-crystal was carefully Inserted, and
to nicely adjusted as to excludo the air,
and thus prevent unduo irritation. Deli
cate as Is this operation, the animal sur
vives It, and tho Investigator may watch
the effects of lood, sleep, fear, etc., upon
the brain, through this circular window.
By this moans it was determined, that,
when tho dog is sleep, tho brain is puler,
and that a fresh Influx of blood is noticod
on his awnkoning, when tho functions of
the brain resumo their activity. From
these observations, and others of a kind
red nature, there is deduced tho theory
that "the brain Is governed by tho com
mon law that controls blood circulation In
all the organs." "Wo havo chosen to pre
tent thete facts in detail, since they illus.
trate tho general naturo ot those investi
gations, though tbey may not offer h satis
factory solution of tho main problem.
However thoio philosophers or their
theories may differ as to thetruo origin o
b'aln force, they aro yet all agreed on ono
point; namely, that the action of tho
brain may be stimulated, strengthened, or
retarded at the will of its possessor. As
the body proper is made strong, the mus
cles develops!, and the organs uf sense
rsndersd more acute, by activo use and
training; so tho mental faculties the
power to reason, remember, etc., aro
are rendered strong and effective by
proper and repeated exercise. Just as tho
muscles of tho arm may, by lifting ten
pounds to-day and twenty to-morrow,
finally attain such strength as readily to
raise a hundredweight or more ; so tho
mind that to-day is able to comprehend or
retain the most simple of mental problems,
may to-morrow master a second and moro
It is narrated of a famous French ne
cromancer, that after walking quickly
put a richly furniibed shop window, and
giving it a mere hurried glaoce, he was
able to name each separate article there
displayed ; giving, with perfect uccuracy,
not only its name, but its preciro location,
form and color. When this man was
asked to reveal tho secret by which bo
worked such wonders, his slmplo reply
was, practice. Day after day, and a hun
dred times each day, he'and bis son would
pass In front of the same window, halting
before each return to repeal to the mem
ory the list of articles noteJ, marking alto
any changes which may huvo been made
during the Interval. Each day tho list
was lengthened; and so acuto did tLo
tight become, and so trained their powers
of observation, that ilnully they wuro on
abled to name every book in
a library through which they hud
passed in apparent unconcern. The storv
no doubt, suems un extravagant ono; yet
tho means for testing its truth are at tho
command of any honest enquirer. In
the instance cited, tho main purpose of
these men was to perplex and mystify
their audience, and, by tho exercise of this
apparently miraculous power, gained
livelihood. If, however, any of our
readers feel desirous of trying for them-
elves, wj would suggest a method that
will render the end worthy of tho effort.
Having determined upon somo poem or
address which it is desired to commit to
memory, read caiefully and with closest
attention tho first few linos; then close
the book, and for five minutes writo and
rewrite the words as recalled, preserving,
as far as possible, tho sonso of the passage.
Again repeat the reading and the recital,
going over both until tho whole
is thoroughly committed to memory,
when a second advanco may be made, and
mil wun me conscious evidence of im
provement. Should, it, however, bo de
Ired to test or develop tho ressoning or
thinking faculties, then let the subject
chosen be a singlo proposition in huclid,
or a dltucult scientific or mathematical
problem. In this caso, as it is not the
memory but tho reason which is under
training, let the mind bo concentrated
upon the Idea which is mount to bo con
veyed, rather than upon tho words in
which it Is presented. The result, though
it may not be so Immediately apparont, U
yei equally certaiu.
W bavo been prompted to mko these
uggestlons for tho reason that thcro is a
notion all loo prevalent, that tho Maker
has given to sorno men certain powers,
wholly withheld from others; und that
not having been gifted, as tho phrase goes
tbey are not responsible. It was told foi
a noble purpose.that story of tbe"talantf;'
yet to bow many has It served as an ox
cuaa for inaction I At opposed to tliir
narrow and falso view of personal respon
sibility, the assertion Is made, and without
basltatlon, that any roan of so-culled
"averg ability" nd a strong will, cn
fain for himself almost any rank among
mn that ba pertinently determine, to at
tain which li simply anothor
rendering of tho old provorb,
"what man has done, man can
do." You hosltato to accept to broad and
positive a statement; and yet let any
doubtful reader recall somo purposo that
once prompted him lo earnest endeavor,
but In tho fulfilment ot which ho failed,
go carefully over each step of tho advanco,
from tho eager and earnest beginning to
tho faint-hearted and fecblo efforts that
pre:eded its abandonment such a retro
spect will certainly rovcal tho fact, that it
was not tho mind that wearied, but the
will that faltered ; ho was not incapable,
But what is tho purpose of tlmta words?
Simply this; to impress upon tho reader,
as n reasoning, intellectual being, that he
has In his aciual potscsslon all tho mate
rial that is ncedod to mako him n leader
among men ; and therefore, If ho fall, he
falls through weakness of purpose, not
lack of power. Nor will this condition be
altered ono whit by tho discoveries of scl
enco or tho demonstrations of philosophy
Whllo this distinguished patriot and
statesmen was vice-president of tho United
States, It was customary for tho Indl
vidunl holding tho said high office, to at
tend to business moro in person, than tho
refinements of moro modern times will al
low. It happened on ono occasion that
somo Important matter required bis at
tention in Philadelphia, und some other
places distant from tho capital. In thoso
day?, a journey to Philadelphia was not to
be performed In a few hoirs it was two
or three day's travel, and not of tho most
pleasant sort cither. Un his re
turn ho stopped In Baltimore;
It was four or II vo In the after
noon, whon tho vlco president rode up
sultless and unattended to tho tavern. A
Scotchman by tbo namo of Boydcn kept
tho hotel. Tho bucks of tho town woro as
sembled in tbo largo hall, smoking, strut
ting, cracking jokes, und otherwise indul
ging In tho etceteras of the day. Hoyden
was at tho bir examining his books, and
doubtless making calculations In reference
to his future prospects. Jefferson had de
livered his horso into tho bunds of tbo
hostler, and walked into the tavern to
mako arrangements In regard to his fare'
Somo ono touched Hoyden upon the
shoulder, and directed bis attention to
ward tho strangor, who was standing
whip in hand, striking it occasionally
upon bis muddy leggins. Boydon turned
round, and surveyed blm from head to
foot, and coh'cluded him to bo an old
farmer from the country, whuio company
would add no credit to tbo bouse, said
abruptly, "We havo no room for you, sir."
JeuVson did not him tho remark, and
asked if ho could not bo accommodated
with a room. Ills voice, which was com
manding and attractive, occasioned an
other survy of his person, by tho honest
proprietor of tho houso, whose only caro
was for its reputation. Ho could not find,
however, in his plain dress, prolty well
covered with mud, anything indicating
wealth or d.iticction, and in his usual
rough style, !iid "a room 7"
Jefferson replied, "Yes sir, I should
liko to havo a room to myself, if I ran get
it." "A room all to yourself? No no,
we have no room there is not a spnro
room in the house all full all occupied
can't accommodate you." Mr. Jefferson
turned upon his heel, called for his horse,
which by this time was snug in tho stublo,
mounted and rodu off. In few minuios
one of tho most woaltby and distinguished
centlemen In tbo town came in and asked
for the gentleman who rode up to the door
few minutes biforo. "Gentleman ?'
said Boydcn. "Vos. the centloman
who came up this instant on
norseD&cxr "mere lias been no
gentleman hero on horseback Ibis after
noon, and no stranger at all, but one com

and asked If ho could havo a whole room
but I asked him out or that mighty quick,
I can tell you 1 told him 1 had no room
for such as him." "No room for such
chaps us hlmt" "No, by tho piper, no
room for any ono that don t look respect
able.' "'Why, what aro you talking about,
man? JIo s tho vico president of tho
United States I" "Vico president of tho

breathless with astonishment. "Why, yes.

up with tho boot Jack. By Goorge, what
a mistake" For fifteen minutes Boydcn
raved liko a muaman, aim wont
to tho door to see If his wished
(or guest was returning. Tho vice
protldcnt rode up to Market striet where
he was recognized by many of his old ac
quaintances, and by them directed to the
Globe tavern, which stood somowhoro
near tho corner of Maria and Charles
trcits. Hero Hoyden's servants came up
and told him their master had provided
rooms fur him, "Tell your majtor I Imv
engaged rooms," replied Jefferson. Poor
Hoyden's mortification can ho better lmag.
incd than described. Tho chaps who
were loitering about tho bar ana
largo hall, and had laughed heartily
at the disappointment of tho
muddy farmor, had recovered from
heir astonishment, and woro preparing to
laugh at tho downcust landlord. After
sutnetlmo lie prevailed on soma frlond to
wait upon Mr. Jefferson with li la apology,
and request thut ho would return and take
lodgings at his house, promising the best
rooms, and-that overv attention should be
given to him. Mr. Jeffenon returnedthe
ollowing answer; "Toll Mr. Boydn I
pnrecialo bis kind Intentions ; but If he
tiad no room for the muddy farme- ho
shall have none for tbvloe prosldeut."
MILTON AND MUSIC.
Tho homo education of Milton was of a
generous and humano character. Ho had
before him, constantly, tho oxamplo of a
father who knew what it was lo suffer In
position and estate, for opinion's sake.
Tho youthful John nbsorbod, with every
boyish breath, tho lovo of liberty for
which his father paid so dearly, But tho
training ol tho homo circlo was not en
tlrely acrimonious. John Milton, senior;
found time to give htmsolf to tho study of
tho noblo scienco music. Ho attained to
such a degrco of skill that ho composed an
11 Nomono of forty parts, which gained
for him a gold medal from nn European,
prlnco. Soveral of his compositions found
a placo In Wllhy't solcctlons, and also in

London scrlvonor did no lets for him in

In all tho oxperlcnco of Milton's stormy
manhood, this sweet comfort of n woariod
mind never failed him. If ho appears
moro prominently In history as n stntos
man and a poet than ns a musician, it is
only because tho world gives moro utter-
tion to tho inviting streams than to tho
quiet springs which supply them.
After receiving his degreo of Muster o
Arts, ho bid adiou to his homo and mado s
tour through tho land of song. Already
the numa which, with thut ofdhakespeare,
was to shine in hnglisli literature, found
nobility and lltorati waiting to confer tho
highest honor. Artists and titled digni
taries recognized In him a genius worthy
of their homage. Tho treasures of ducal
palaces were laid open to his inspection.
Galleries of art und ancient libraries invited
his thoughtful study. But amid all tho
scenes of artistic glory and princely mag-
inucence, hecarriod with him tho training
of the scrivonor's fireside. After renchlne
Venice ho spent a month in collecting the
works of tho master musicians of Italy.
Luca Marenzo, Monto Verdo, Horatio
Voccbl, Cuba, tbo prlnco of Venosa, and
othors of tho host composers of tbo time,
furnished him with a rich treasury of Ital
ian song. Two chests of music bookr
woro shipped to England.
At the ago uf thirty-one, he returned tc
his native land. At once ho uddresssi
himself to thoso politicul und social pri-
jccls whoso audacity was equuled only It
tho vigor with which ho discussed then,
His "Tractate on Education" was a coloi-
sal In its conooptlon as it was impracti
cable in its execution. Ho was so far In
advance of his own age as to appear
visionary. It Is only in our own time
that his broad views havo
been appreciated, and munv of
his principles adoptod. Ho maintained
that tho education of vouth should bo
physical as well as mental; that their
minds should bo occupied with tho
whole cycle of human knowlcdgo; nnd
that, among the arts, music should havo a
conspicious place. Ho saw In music not a
mcro embellishment to set off sterner
things, but n profound scienco and the
most inspiring of arts.
Milton never speaks of music without
a peculiar und impressivo enthusiasm.
Tho depths and virtues of music ore clow-
ing themes under his pen. His vorses
sing, because his spirit sings in thorn. No
poo, revels more luxuriously in tho swell-
ing waves of music Ho soars into tho
very empyrean of lofty song, Coleridget
calls him tho "musical poot." "Parudlso
Lost" throbs with the echoes that rang, In
incessant anthem, in his musical soul.
Muslo was his only recreation. In the
intervals of sovcro study, ho gave himself
to inspiring song. "Whon ho stopped to

CHILDREN PKOTECTI NG BIRDS
Tho German societies for tho protection
of animals, especially tho one In Berlin,
are doing excellent work by writings, and
eipocially by winter lectures. The dis
union on tho protection of birds called
tho attention of the leaders of this move
ment to the necessity of Influencing child
ren to care for animals; and sovoral excel
lent hooks havo been written for this pur
A Hessian schoolmaster has set a good
oxamplo. It was the gonoral complaint
in bis village that tho rough boys wero
continually guilty of cruelty to animals,
of taking away birds oggs, and of destroy
ing thslr nests. The toucher, grieved at
such conduct among his own scholars, de
termined, after careful consideration, to
form among tbo children a "Socioty for
the Protection of Animals ano Preserva
lion of Plants." The children wero de
lighted whon their instructor communica
ted to thorn his idea, and with the greatest
willingness took upon themselves the du
ties impoed by tho rules of the society.
During tho past year, tho children have
caught many thousands of injurious in
sects, and destroyed innumerable cater-pllar-ncsts.
They are taught, however,
toprotect the usoful animals, and to pro
s&'vo the birds and their nests most zeal
oisly. This wintor the children have uuder
tstan the duty of strewing food in frosty
weather to their little winged friends.
Tto communal authorities of the placo
plmted a number of young fruit-trees dur
inr, the last summer; and theso aro now
placed under tho special euro and over
sight of the school youth. Tho teachor
has ipportloned to each boy a certain
numbr of trees ; and tho children aro
said t havo really become vory much at
Ucbcl to the chargo placed
upoollisni. Strango to say, no reward is
offerel to tho children; tboy feel perfectly
satlslbd In bolngablo to bo of service, and
to wok for the general good. The villago
society for tho protection of animals and
presetvatlon of plants certainly deserves
encouiagemont and imitation. "Wo thould
