Nervts of Genius.
Many of the muen whose names we
revere- today in science. art. literature
iad poetry suffered from emotional
disturbances, resulting in nerve storms
or outbursts of mental violence, whiei
can only be described as supeacute
mania. Th. poet Cowper had strong
suicidal tendencie,. yet Le wrote "John
Gilpin" when su~ferinZ froma inteuse
melancholia. Shelley had an insane
ancestry, and at Eton he was called
"Ma'i Shelley." Charies Lamb had to
Le i;aeed in an asylun, and his sister
Mary stabbed her mother to the heart I
while insane. Wordsworth and his
sister Dorothy are almost a parallel to
Charles and Mary Lamb. At the age
of thirty Coleridge was broken down,
and he died a wreck at sixty-two.
Southey came of an insane stock. The
mother of Richard Brinsley Sheridan,
the dramatist, died demented at forty
two. Pope was deformed and rickety,
and Keats was neuropathic to his fin
ger tips. Byron's mother was unbal
anced, and so was his maternal grand
Value of Deep Breathing.
Writing on the cultivation of phys
ical fitness in the Herald of the Golden
Age, Eustace Miles says that those
who have mastered the art of deep
and full breathing are thereby enabled
to master their emotions-they can
overcome pain and secure control of
the mind and of the circulation of the I
blood. The control of the breathing
prevents one from becoming hurried
and flurried. and one acts leisurely, I
although not lazily. Breathing can be
adapted to various needs-for instance,
in producing warmth or the opposite
effect-or one can breathe in order to
become more sensitive. In fact, the all
round value of deep and full breath
ing cannot be overestimated. Of all
physical practices this is the first and
foremost and one that can be regu
lated without being In the least con
spicuous. If you have learned how to
breathe deeply and fully people may
not suspect it-they only notice that
you are calm, poised and good tem
He Had Told It.
Next to Joseph Chamberlain, Bir
mingham honors no citizen more than
Jesse CoUings. In politics and friend
ship AIr. Chamberlain and Mr. Col
lings have been inseparable for many
years. They even shared their plat
form anecdotes. and in regard to one
story they arranged that when both
were taking part in a meeting the first
speakter was entitled to its use.
It so happened that Mr. Collings ar
rived late at a meeting one night, but
was due to speak before Mr. Cham
berlain. As he was launching out into
the story be felt his coattail pulled,
and a voice behind him whispered,
"I've told it." So Mr. Colings desist
ed. but what was his surprise to hear
Mr. Chamberlain tell the story as soon
as he got on his legs. "I thought you
said you told it?' he asked afterward.
"So I had," replied the imperturbable
Joe, "but not tonight"-Pall Mall Ga
A Legend About Cats.
The ancient Greeks thought that all
creatures except cats had souls and
that that amimal lost its soul through
a bargain made between a bridge
architect and the devil. The archi
teet had besought the devil to get help
in constructing an exceedingly dan- '
gerous bridge structure, and his sa
tanic majesty only consented to lend
aid on condition that the first creature
to cross it should lose its soul. This
was agreed upon, the bridge finished
in due time and the devil sent to thet
opposite side to await his prey. The I
shrewd architect took good care toC
send a cat over before any human be
ing was allowed to cross. On learning
of the bargain the cat recrossed the
bridge and scratched the architect's
