TEMPERAENT AND EXERCISE.
Nervous Persons Require Light Exercise, Phlegmatic People Vigorous Practice. W. W. Davis contributes a paper to “Studies from the Yale Psychological Laboratory” on the correlation of ex ercise and temperament, which, though It is in no way conclusive, is o! sug gestive importance. Mr. Davis, as the result of a series of observations, con cludes that in training for develop ment of strength, nervous person* re quire light exercise, while pa'egmatic indivicuals require vigorous practice, the latter class being characterized by the presence of much reserve energy of muscle and nerve cell, and the form er by less of this reserve energy, but a greater ability to use what they have. He admits that the application of these principles, as they presuppose an intimate knowledge on the part of the trainer with the temperaments of those under his charge, are difficult, and points out that his erperlments show that in the development of strength mental factors are more nec essary than muscular, expressing the •opinion that if the principles can be applied to the development of Trill power and co-ordination, that they should also be applicable to memory, association, imagination and reason ing. as all have a physiological basis und are in so far governed, in a given Individual, by the same principles of growth, in a general way it may be said Mr. Davis’ results emphasize importance of individual as contrasted with collective training, both physical and mental.—Philadelphia Times. ANTI-MOSQUITO PLANT. The Ricinu* Communis Llkelj to Re come a Favorite. The observation made by Prof. Starr of Chicago university that the plant which bears the castor bean—the ricinus communis, or palma Christ! is efficacious in driving away mos quitoes, is by no means new, but is valuable in reinforcing the influence of one made some time ago. Several years have passed since it was remark* ed, somewhere in one of the South* rn states, that where these plants grew i about a house mosquitoes were always absent. In view of the demonstrated functions of the mosquito in spreading malaria and yellow fever, new value Ls given to all means for destroying teat evil insect or keeping it at a distan e. The castor bean plant should therefoTJ be a valuable auxiliary to petroleum— the latter exterminating the larvae and the former driving away the winged insect. Possibly annolntlng with cas tor oil might also keep off the insect and so prevent its attacks under cir cumstances where It would be inprac tlcable to carry the bean Itself. The castor bean plant has long been a com mon garden ornament, liked for Its* rapid development to a considerable height, its picturesque foliage and large tropical-looking leaves, with flowers that, in certain varieties, are also showily handsome. With its be neficent function clearly established it will naturally gain favor rapidly, and next spring we may see something of a run on the market for castor beans.— HoKUii Herald. 10.

THE STATESMAN, DENVER. COLORADO. Willie Was Sympathetic. The new clergyman was invited to dine with the family the other Sun day, and 8-year-old Willie, of course, made himself conspicuous during his stay. Ho seemed to be deeply im pressed with the minister, and never let his eyes stray from him. He man ifested as much interest as his elders in what was said, but regarded the minister with a somewhat sorrowful expression, which was altogether un called for, as ha was of a jovial dis position and greatly amused his bear ers. As the minister was about to leave, Willie meekly approached him and sadly asked: "Why—why—how does it feel to be poor?" "What do you mean, Willie?" laugh ingly asked the minister, turning tc the parents with an amused smile. “Why, I heard papa say to mamma that you was a mighty poor preach er,” was Willie's startling decla'a tlon.
