LATIOH TO THE VITAL STUUt.TCUE. TIIK

When the organs uf respiratitm aro men
tioned, tho ni.so, throat, larynx, trachea,
bronchial tubes and air-cells constituting
tho lunt,-s aro meant.
The organs of respiration form the struct
ure through which we breathe. When wo
close tho lips and draw sir through tho
noso it passes over tho threat,' through the
larynx, trachea, and bronchial tube into
tho air-cells. Thus it may be seen that all
the organs of respiration combined form
ono continuous air-passugo or breathing
This utr-passago from the noso to the
lungs is covered with a membrane, just as
the body is with skin. The surface of this
membtano is covered so closely with short
hair-like tubes, that even under a strong
magnifying inspection it is barely possible
to discern any interstitial space. All theso
tubes have tiny orifices, or mouths, which
arc opened aud closed by orbicular muscles,
which relax and contract with every systolic
aud diastolic action of the heart. These
mouths suck in and spew out with every
throb of the pulse a thin transparent mucus
which keeps the surface of the membrane
The importance of this membrane in the
economy of respiration cannot be too highly
estimated. Life could not be sustained
without it. Were it not fer this wet sur
face the repeated inspiration of dry air
pissing Into the lungs would soon destroy
the delicate tissue of the air-cells with fiery
inflammation. The otHceof this membrane
is to tho vital structure what the stomach
is to the physical system. It digests the
air and attracts elements fiom it for vital
By the vital structure is meant' that in
terior organization which is endowed with
motion, sensation, intelligence, and ondur
ing life. . In an old book it is spoken of as
a "spiritual body;" Plato, Aristotle, and
Socrates recognize it as the "interior self."
Call it as we may, it is an intelligent intr
pervading essence of the physical structure;
and tho physician who does not understand
the laws through which it manifests its
presence, in sickness and in health, is, to
say the least, not fully qualified in his pro
fession, no matter in what school of niedi
c;nu he has graduated, or how many honors
his alma mater may havo conferred upon
Beautifully related to this inuer body are
the organs of respiration. They draw
from the atmosphere supplies to promote
its growth and perpetuate its exiatence.
Through them magnetic and electric ele
ments are attracted for tho indwelling spirit,
just as nutrition is sucked up by the mesen
teries to sustain tho physical structure.
Tho analogy is perfect.
Tho anatomy and physiology of the hu
man lungs are wonderful. They aro su
perior to those of animals. Tho very fact
that tho vesicular structure ultimates in air-
chambers, that tho vascular system insin
uates its tiny net-work of canals all over
tho walls of these chambers, that tho bron
chial tubes terminate in air-cells, that tho
parenchyma is a tmhstanco of polar- attraC'
Hon, anil the tact that tho whole structure
is in harmony with tho heart through the
pulmonary veins, and with the brain
through tho sympathetic "nerve and lym
phatic g.lauds, forces the conviction tlut the
lungs were designed to receive and organize
atmospheric elements into enduring struct
uro that is governed by principles ofjustico
and eternal laws.

How to Make Toast.
Mrs. E. P. Ewing in a recent lecture
on cookery said: "Toasting effectually
destroys yeast germs in bread, and con
verts the insoluble starch into a soluble,
t tbstancii resembling gum, which chem
ists call dextrine, so that toasted bread
is incapable of fermenting and produc
ing flatulence, or becoming sour on tho
stomach. Bread toasted very dry a"rees
better with a weak stomach than" any
other bread indeed, a sensitivo stom
ach will frequently digest toast when it
will digest no other article of food.
Henco toast, which is in such general
uso as a diet for invalids, can be safely
and judiciously recommended for them
at all times; and tho loose talk indulged
in by some self-styled teachers of physi
ology about the extreme unhealthfulness
of toast, especially when buttered, only
gave emphasis to the fact that toasting
bad bread and mcltim; bad butter does
not improvo tho quality of either, or
render them less indigestible orunwholo-
some than when in their original unre
generate codition. Molting or boiling
inferior butter will not make it uroner
food for a human stomach, and the most
skillful manipulation will not convert
sour, half-baked bread into nutritious.
1 oast holds so important a place in
our dietary that every one should know
how to make it properly. Yet one of
tho best American authorities on culi
nary matters says only about one in ten
thousand knows how to make toast, and
the lecturer endorsed the statement so
far as to assert that bad toast was the
rule, good toast the exception. In mak-'
ing toast, three directions should be ob
served; Cut tho bread, which should bo
somewhat stale, in even, slices, about
half an inch in thickness. If tho bread
is fresh, slightly dry them. Hold each
slico a sullicient distance from the fire,
which should b5 of clear, bright coals,
to keep it from burning, aud let it brown
evenly. For this purpose a wire broiler
or a toasting-fork can bo used. When
