Of its eminently conservative and even upward tendency, very little doubt can be teasonably entertained,, We do fall in love, taking us in a lump, with the young, the beautiful, the strong, the gifted and the hoealthy; we do not fall in love, taking aPs ina a lump, with the old, the ugly, the, fieeble aid the sickly, The a.ohiaition of the church is scarcely needed to prevent a man from marrying his grandmothe*, Moralists have always borne a special grudge to pretty faee-; Jut as Mr. HerbFert spencer admirably pit it (lonq before the atpearance of D arwin's selective theory) "the saying that beauty is but skin deep is itself but a skin-deep say ing." In reality, beauty is one of the best guides we can possibly have to the desiran bility, so far as race preservation is con erned, of any man or any womany women as a partner in marriage. A fine form, a good figure, a beautiful bust, a round arm and neck, a fresh com plexion, a lovely face, are all outward and visible signs of the physical qualities that, on the whole, conspire to make up a healthy and vigorous wife and mother; they imply soundness, fertility, a good circulation, a good digestion. Conversely, snllowness and paleness are roughly indicative of dyspepsia and nae mia; a flat chest is'a symptom of deficient maternity; and what we call a bad figure ic really, in one way or another, an unhealthy departure from the central normal and standard of the rqpe. Good teeth mean good deglutition; a clear eye means an active liver. cruabbishness and undersizedness means feeble virility. Nor are indications of mental and moral efficoiency by any means wanting in recog nized elements in personal beauty. A good humored face is in itself almost pretty; A vleasant smile half redeems unattractive features. Low, receding foreheads strike us unfa vorably. Heavy, stolid, half-idiotic coun tenances can never be beautiful, however regular their linesand contours. Intelligence and goodness are almost as necessary as health and vigor, in order to make up our perfect idea of a beautiful human face and tfgure. - The Apollo Belvidere is no fool; the mar derers in the chamber of horrors at Mme. Teaisuad's are, for the most part, no beau ties. What we all fall in love with, then, as a race, is, in most cases, efficiency and abil ity. What w° each fall in love with indi vidually is, I believe, our moral, mental and physical complement. Not our like, not our counterpart; quite the contrary; within the healthy limits, our unlike and our opposite. That it is so has long been more or, less a commonplace of ordinary convcrsation; that it is scientifi cally true, one time with another, when we take an extended range of oases, may, I think, be almost demonstrated by sure and certain warranty of human nature. Brothers and sisters have more in com mon, mentally and physically, than other members of the same race can possibly' have with one another. But nobody falls in love with his sister. A profound instinct has taught even the lower races of men, for the most part, to avoid such union of the all-but-identical. In the higher races the idea never so much as occurs to us. Even cousins sel dom fall in love-seldom, that is to say, in comparison with the frequent opportuni ties of intercourse they enjoy relatively to the remainder of general society. When they do, and when they carry out their perilous choice effectively by mar riage, natural selection soon avenges na ture upon the offspring. Tn narrow com munities, where breeding in-and-in is almost inevitable natural selection has similarly to exert itself upon a crowd of cretins and other helpless incapables. But in wide and open champaign coun tries, where the individual choice has free room for exercise, men and women, as a rule (if not constrained by parents and moralists), marry for love, and marry, on the whole, their natural complements. They prefer outsiders, fresh blood, some body from beyond the community, to the people of their own immediate surround inns. In many men the dislike to marrying among the folk with whom they have been brought up amounts almost to a positive instinct; they feel it as impossible to fall in love with a fellow-townswoman as to fall in love with their own first cousins. Among exogamous tribes such an in stinct (aided,* of course, by other extra nieous causes), has hardened into custom; and there is no reason to believe (from the universal traces among the higher civiliza tions of marriage by captare) that all the leading races of the world are ultimately derived from exogamous ancestors possess ing this healthy and excellent sentiment. In minor nistters it is, of course, univer sally admitted that short men as a rule pre for tall women, while tall men prefer little women. Dark pairs by preference with fair; the commonplace often runs after the original. I eople have long noticed that this attrac lion toward one's opposite tends to keep true the standard of the race; they have zot, perhaps, so generally observed that it also indicates roughly the existence in either individual a desire for its own nat ural complement. It is difficult here to give definite exam ples, but everybody knows how, in the subtle psychology of falling in love, there are involved innumerable minor elements, physical and mental, which strike us ex actly because of their absolute adaptation to form with ourselves an adequate unioin. Of coursp, we do not definitely seek out and discover such qualities; instinct works far more intuitively than that, but a fiud at last, by subsequont observatiof, how true and trustworthy were. its immediate indications. That is to say, those men do so who were wise enough or fortunate enough to follow the earliest promptinga of their own hearts and, not to be ashamed of that divlnest and deepest of human intuitions, love at first sight.
