thatw, the object of his existence.
This involves man's relations to God,
li'misi-M and his neighbor. The student
should now be told that he has three
natures, to-wit : 1st Physical. 2d In
tellectual. 3d Moral. That his great
business and chief concern in life is the
ptopi-r cultivation of these; that it is
his duly to study, cultivate and devel
op Ins body, his miud and his moral

wnie and cypher are only a means to
liiie great ends; that every branch
of etudy that contributes to this end
boouid be pursued, and every one that
does not should not be pursued.
It is evident from these two divisions
of oludy that the greatest stody of
nun is man, and the most important

The first treats of man's physical na

It should he the aim of the student
to be punctual in attendance at school,
to be thorough in study, and good in
the recitation. The boy or girl who
w -tild be successful in after life must
lay the foundation of success in youth.
Tn-y should fully understand the im
portance of improving their schooldays
for this purpose.
' The Ktudent that seeks every oppor
tunity to idle away bis time in making

will live to regret that lie thus wasted
his time. The happy, eportive, joyous,
laughing boy or girl shed happiness
wherever they go, if they are careful
to control their gayety, and allow its
flow only in the proper place ; but they
should never permit the love of the
mirthful to infringe on the rules of the
echool-rooni or the laws of etiquette.
On the contrary, true courtesy should

"Don't you drink anything ?"

"What !" said the man, "does Chris
keep you from drinking?"
The fisherman, at first, confused by
the novelty of the question, hesitated

The poor inebriate was struck by the
reply. lie thought: "There is help

When a young man has made up his
mind to walk on the edge of a precipice
for the sake of seeking prospects, he
always finds plenty of company. There
are abundance of . people with strong
heads, who, having walked these paths
until they are quite certain of their
foot hold, are ready to go out with new
beginners. If they accidentally lose
their heads and fall over, whoso fault
is that? Not theirs, of course. They
never fall. They look where they step,
and their heads do not turn. It is not

The late Professor Faraday held that
the natural age of man was one hun
dred years. The duration of life he
believed to be measured by the time of
growth. In thecamel, this takes eight,
in the horse five, in the lion four, in
the dog two, in the rabbit one year.
The natural termination is five removes
from these sevcia points. Man, being
twenty years in growing, lives five
times twenty years il,at is, one hun
dred ; the camel is eight years in grow
ing and lives forty years ; and so with
other animals. The man who does
not die of sickness lives everywhere
from eighty to one hundred years. The
professor divided life into equal lialvjs
growth and decline' and these into
infancy, youth, virility and age. In
fancy extends to the twentieth year,
youth to the fiftieth, because it is in
this period that the tissues become firm;
virility from fifty to seventy-five, dur
ing which the organism remains com
plete, and at seventy five old flge com-
mences, to last as the diminution of re

Seven Cures for Neuralgia.
Among the hints for relieving neu
ralgia we find the following afloat in
the newspapers :
"1. Orate and mix horse radish in
vinegar, the same as for table purposes
and apply to the temple wheu the face
or head is affected, or the wrist when
the pain is in the arm or shoulder. 2.
A lady who has been troubled with
neuralgia in her head uses a bag of hot
oats at night as a pillow. She says :
"leat the oatd iu a kettle over the fire
or iu a pan in- your oven. I have never
been troubled with neuralgia any place
but in my head, so I caunot say how
beneficial it would bo for neuralgia iu
othpr parts of the body. Another
cure is drinking hot lemonade." 3.
Apply equal parts of camphor, chloro
form, acouite and alcohol for neural
gia. It will relieve, and won't take
off the skin either. 4- One of the
simplest remedies for neuralgia is es
sence of peppermint. Bathe the part
affected, keeping the hand over it. It
will burn and draw, but not blister.
5. Let Canada thistle be gathered for
the purpose when in blossom, dried as
other herbs. Turn boiling water on a
quanUty of the thistles, let them steep
five or ten minutes, turn out and s weet
eu to taste. Before drinking it fix for
a sweat iu a warm room, then drink off
the tea while it is hot, iu large quanti
ties. Follotaking the tea for a few
days and you will effect a cure; don't
drink it hot after the sweat, but either
warm or cold. G. Sal mumouja, half
drachm, dissolve in water one ounce.
Dose, one tablespoon ful internally every
three minutes. 7. Extract of gelsemin
(yellow jessamine), five to ten drops,
in about a tablespoon ful of water;
three doses taken at intervals of an
hour apart, uot sooner, have relieved
very severe attacks.
