The best kind of exercise ia the
kind that makes you forget you are
exercising in other words, play, says
a physician. It's a good scheme to
have some more or less strenuous
game for a hobby golf or bowling or
tennis or archery anything that ap
peals to you and affords exercise with
interest. But this is not saying that
systematic exercise is not a good
The great Greek physicians had de
voted much attention to insanity, and
some of their precepts anticipated
modern discoveries, but no lunatic asy
lum appears to have existed in an
tiquity. In the first period of the
monastic life a refuge is said to have
been opened for the insane at Jerusa
lem, but this appears to have been a
solitary instance, arising from exi
gencies of a single class, and it may
be said that no lunatic asylum ex
isted in Christian Europe until about
the time of the fifteenth century.

Mr. Balfour, in proposing the toast
of "Literature" at the anniversary din
ner of the Royal Literary fund at the
Whitehall rooms recently, said:
"I think that literature is less cheer
Eul now than it wa3 when I was young.
It may be because I am growing old
that I take this gloomier view of lit
erary effort, but still I personally
like the spring day and bright sun
and the birds singing, and if there be
a shower or a storm, that it should be
simply a passing episode in the land
scape, to be followed immediately by
a return to brilliant sunshine. While
that is what I prefer I of course admit
that the great, the picturesque, the
striking storm is a magnificent sub
ject for artistic treatment and is
well worthy of the efforts of a great
"I am not quite so sure, however,
about the dreary day in which nothing
is seen, in which the landscape does
not change, in which there is a steady
but not violent downpour of rain. I
do not say that that ought not to be
treated as a subject of literature, but
it is not what I ask of literature.
"What I ask from literature mainly
is that in a world that is full of sad
ness and full of difficulty, in which
you , come through the day wear
ied, in which you come back from
your work wearied, you should find
in literature something which repre
sents life which is true in the higher
sense of truth or what is imagined to
be true, but which does cheer us.
Therefore when I ask you to drink the
toast of literature I shall myself sotto
voce say 'not literature merely, but
that literature in particular which
served the great cause of cheering us
up.'" London Daily Mail.

One of the most repellent houses in
which I have ever visited was one in
which there was from garret to cellar,
so far as I discovered, not one article
which was not of the period imitated,
not one streak of color which was not
"right," Ida M. Tarbell writes in the
American magazine.' It was a master
piece of correct furnishing, but it was
curiously limiting and stifling. You
could not escape the scheme. The in
elasticity of it hampered sociability
and there grew on one, too, a sense of
unfitness. Its clothes were an ana
chronism! They were the only thing
which did not belong.
There is an old fashioned adjective
which describes better than any other
this preoccupation with things, which
so often prevents a woman's coming
to an understanding of the heart of
her business. It is old maidish. It
has often been the pathetic fate of
single women to live alone. To min
ister to themselves becomes their oc-.
cupation. The force of their natures
turns to their belongings. If in strait
ened circumstances they gave their
souls to spotless floors, if rich to flaw
less mahogany and china, to perfect
household machinery. Wherever you
find in women this perversion old
maidish is perhaps the most accurate
word for her it is a sacrifice of the
human to the material. A house with
out sweet human litter, without the
trace of friends who have no sense
of beauty, but who love to give, with
out .the scars of use and the dust of
running feet what is it but a meat
This devotion to "things" may easily
become a ghoulish passion.

Horse-Breedlng In Britain.
Two" interesting experiments in Brit
ish horse breeding-are referred to in
a government report First, a real
attempt is being made to revive the
fine hardy local breeds of ponies in
Scotland and Wales, or small Welsh
cart horses, and of Devonshire pack
horses. Mares have been purchased
and the county councils will superin
tend a scheme of scientific breeding.
The second experiment is the creation
of a new thoroughbred capable of use
.as a hunter. The animal is being
"created" under the most recently dis
covered Mendalian laws of heredity,
with the help of funds generously of-
i fered by Captain Part
; How to Make a Man Happy.
. Nagging becomes a habit, and the
woman wnb wants to make her home
happy will avoid it like the plague.
It never does the slightest good, be
cause if a man is nagged at his faults
only increase. He gets tired of being
perpetually reminded of them, and of
having his shortcomings dinned into
