A Physician Kntcrs a Protest Against the
Charge on a Useful Organ.
I wish to say a few words about heart
failure. We alnroHt daily see reports of
deaths attributed to heart failure. Now,
what I wish to ak is, What is it the heart
fails to do? I have always considered the
heart the most perfect organ of the animal
economy, and one that never shirks its
duty. It commences its la -xr during the
early stages of pregnancy, and goes on
until the last moment of life, without one
second's rest, night or day; often without
the intermission of a single- pulsation for
100 years or more. At every be.it it propels
2 ounces or blood through the structure.
At 75 pulsations por minutn 9 pounds of
blood is sucked in and pumjied out. Every
hour, 540 pounds; every day 12,0(50 pounds;
every year, 4.7:10,400 poun is; every 100
years, 473,040,000 pounds. Verily a good
organ, and all performed w thout one mo
Now the heart has the very meanest and
most contemptible neighbor that ever an
organ had, namely the stomach, a drunk
ard, a glutton, a trespasser, and almost
everything else that is bid. Verily it
ought to be walled in and compelled to
Keep on its own grounds.
The stomach lies directly under the
heart, with only the diaphragm between.
and when it fills with gas it is like a small
balloon, and lifts up till it interferes di
rectly with the heart's acti m. The stom
ach never generates gas, but when filled
with undigested food fermentation takes
place and gas is formed, an 1 the interfer
ence depends upon the amount of gas in
the stomach. To overcome this obstruc
tion the heart has to exert i elf in propor
tion to the interference, moie blood is sent
to the brain and the following symptoms
are tne result: A dizzy h'ad, a flushed
face, a loss of sight, spots it blurs before
the eyes, flashes of light, zigzag lines or
chains, etc., often followed by the most
severe headache. These symptoms are
usually relieved when the as is expelled
from the stomach.
Now. when this upward pressure upon
the heart becomes excessive, more danger
ous symptons supervene, a 1 rger quantity
of blood is sent to the bra n, some vessel
ruptures and a blood clot in the brain is
the result, and the patient; dies of apo
plexy, or, if he lives, is a cripple for life.
When a sick person, or an old one, or
one with feeble digestion sleeps, digestion
is nearly or quite suspende 1, but fermen

A Maori Legend.
The Maoris believed in tl e immortality
of the soul long before the arrival of the
missionaries, but the spirit land to which
they imagined all men journeyed after
death was as grossly material as the
"happy hunting grounds" of the North
American Indians. Such a legend aa the
following, which contains nn instance of
singularly determined par. ntal interfer
ence. Is sufficient evidence of this: A young
chief of high rank fell in lov s with a Maori
maiden of great beanty, but of low degree.
His father "forbade the iM.nns." There
upon the usual results followed. The young
chief refused to eat. and A A nf l.i.r,
The beautiful maiden, heartbroken at the
ueatn or her lover, leaped j own from the
cliffs into the sen in order taat she might
follow him. Now conies the extraordinary
part of the story. The obdurate father,
hearing of the girl's leap into the sea,
rushed to the spot, battleax in hand.
Using terrible lamruarre. he derlarari tk.t
he would prevent the union of the pair in
spirit lanu, ana lorthwith himself leaped
down to follow them. Yanl ee Blade.
