Tbere . are' taoe who say they do not, hot only pro " hibit the playing of certain game of chance, ' for which twenty other games can be substi tuted. It is to be hoped that tbi statement ia incorrect, for unfortunately there are too many way by which Memphis young men can go to the devil without thai. . It is hu miliating to have to record that it i said tbere are grave business men in the city who contt-nd that gambling belli are necessary as an inducement to peop'e to come here and do business, as such persona like a little re creation while in town.' Whoever said that was either a gambler himself or an imb-cile who knew not the meaning of the words he waa nsing. Few experienced merchants desire the custom of men who frequent the gambling hell, tbey know that to give each men credit is to incur ultimate loss. They know, also, that inch places tend to demoralise the youth of Memphis, to make them unreliable and untrustworthy., They know, also, that the gambling hell adds one more to tb temptation that may beset their own eons. To excuse, or plead for, er disguise the truth about these hells is inexcusable, and si man who can be found guilty of doing so had bet ter he avoided; intimacy with his thoughts will be evil. Hir ISLAM D rjABABiTiaC. The New Orleans Picayune, of Tuesday, states tbat the officials of tha Board of Health had abandoned ths quarantine station at Ship Island, having received orders from : Washington to tranaFtr all the property to the officers of the Marine Hospital Service. ' Dr. GO'frey was sppointed to assume tha control of the quarantine station, and Dr. Finney, from Memphis, was required to join him aa his assistant, remaining ss the resi dent physician of the quarantine station. ' The announcement by the TimiB-Dtmucrat that the quarantine station being abandoned, two vessels performing quarantine there, the health officer having no longer authority to detain them, had . aailed away with yellow flags flying, but without 'any actual case of sickness aboard, caused anxiety. Dr. Oodfrey waa much conneroed at the intelligence, and telegraphed to the proper quarters to prevent improper lending of the ships. There appeared to be a diepo- eilion to impute blame to the Board of Health, but it ia evident the Board could not exercise control when its authority had ex pired, and it waa nol their limit thai the Marine Service was noCou the spot af Ike time. The Fioayunt says; "Dr. Finnic is a young man, bnt he baa had much experience in treating yellow-fever in Memphis. In ad dition to this be was with Dr. Murray at Brownsville, Tex , wbeo the Marine Hospital Service took charge of and extinguished the yellow-fever epidemic tbere." it is gratifying that one so well acquainted with the needs of the Mississippi Valley is on duty at Ship lslsnd. a Lntr colour. ' There are some strange, unsolved problems in existence, aod among others the disap pearance of a whole colony 600 years ago ' the people of which have never been heard of since, or their descendants. Thia strange disappearance will probably have light thrown upon it by tbe time another summer comes round. In the year 086 Erie the Bed took a colony to Greenland, then a fruit ful country, which settled by a creek at Brat taliild, on the eastern shore of Baffin's Bay. The coionist became Christians; the settle ment was prosperous and followed by others, the country uccupied being divided into two districts, which at one time contained 280 farms, three towns, a cathedra, fifteen churches and fwur monasteries. Tbe first bishop was ordained in 1211, the laat in 1404; in 1409 the bishop ia known to have officiated at a marriage. Since then no mors haa been beard of the colony.- Bishop, people, farms, town and churches have beta gradually but sorely invaded by the alow but steadily advancing glaciers, and either de stroyed or hemmed in. Capl. Orach, in 1829, coade a careful investigation, but could dis cover no traces of the people. On the west coast are ruins, implements of wood and chcreh bells hsve been ' found, also a large atone, dated 1315, with an inscriptiod relat ing to the clearing of the ground by Bjarni Tbordassen and Eindred Oddsson; and an in ' acriptien upon a weman'a trunk, "Niagis ' resteth here; God made glad her souL" What became of this industrious and well doing people? Some have fancied they were carried off by the plague, but the evidence ie against that theory. Others believed they 1 had fallen the prey of the Norse pirates, bat they were too remote and not rich enough for those men. No mere Esquimaux , 7 could attempt to attack tbem, of eoorse. , The more probable auppeeitioa it that more ' deeirable lands and a milder climate ' were discovered in tha interior," and 1 . thither they removed. Then, in course of years, the ice barrier covered all the coast - ranjre, shutting the people in among their farms and towns. Are their descendants till dwelling in those regions never pene trated for 600 years today? Speaking r r there their old Runic tongue, now dead else J where; wearing garments of the old fashion, end. ignorant of all that research aod science 1 have discovered. Tbe great traveler Nor j denekjold, who haa sailed around the pole, haa gone thia summer to search thia mysteri- eus land.

The apposition to it is rapidly grow ag, and mack of it is Inspired by the barbarity of baagiog. Indeed, every human individual f 'oreed to confess aa aversion to : hanging a mean of executing criminals. It ja barbarous and out of harmony with tha inMlilgance and moral culture of , tha nine- Heenth century. Joseph Brewster waa hanged at El Paao, Tex., oo Thursday last, and the scene was a disgrsoe to civilisation. ' Tbe victim wss plied with mean whisky, and ths job was so bungingly executed by the hang' xoan that Itrswster waa taken down and pre. pared for another swing. This was the re fine men I of torture.

The crime even of murder diners in degree in different hands, and should tod a corre sponding difference in the mod of punish ment. 8uch a theory ia wholly false. We take life simply ss protective mean re and aa a preventive to others who would likewise com mit crime but for the restraint tf this law. We do not pretend that a man must hang, and thus die like dog becaase hie crime ia so great that it merits only this mode of death, and there is no reason why some other made jp'ght not be chosen.

The public prepara tion Hoi me parade about the gallows ar txlrenily demoralising. They are a humili ation to innocent le'ative and friends such as can only do an immense barm, while no possible good can corns from them. Such an execution gives opportunity for the most dis gusting public bravado of hardened criminal oo the one head and for equally dieguslioc profession ot religions faith apoo the other, while the Christian religion, suffers in (he hands of one claaev and the trade of the highwayman and cut-throat takes oa a kind of respectability in , the display of daring and courage by the other.

The fear of hanging ia undoubtedly present in the mind of the murderer who finds himself ia the meshes of tbe lew, but that ia a matter for the future; for tbe pres ent he is a man of mark, the whole city ia talking about him, and tb; probability ia that if enough fuss is made a cooimuteiioi of sentence will be obtained. Meantime, his old companions in crime envy the murderer all his distinctions except the last.

Misfortunes seem ie dog ths heels of , Mi iasippi's pesky little demagogue. His re buffs come in battalions. Oa Wednesday laat the propls of Jackson, Mist, sat dswa en Chalmers by contemptuously ignjriog the farcical convention which Wss t ma&ei him the Mississippi Mahene, and two daya after ward he was stranded at Oxford ie the United States District Court.

The most fritolous charges were made against gentlemen of noimpeaehabW integ rity, and in order to give i him ample opportunities for gratifying hi malignity Cbalmera bastenad to Wesbicgtoi and nad nimaell nireel to proewdt aia ol friends. For Weeks h haa been preparing for trial, and chuckled with delight at the prospect of sending to tbe penirtn'.lafy by means of perjury and the prejudice of a Republican Judge and jury, tbe victims be bad selected. Tbe dsy for Irisl arrived, lh prisoners were ready for trial, and Judge Hill sustained the motion to quash the pros' ecution. Thus terminated indictments which had their origin in nothing but malignity and meanness. Bat Chalmers is so aaed to rebuffs, and has become se inewibls lo shame eince he knowa hi own moral obliquity, that instead of hiding hia blnshea be will make a feeble effort to brasenout his inglorious de feat. Ths prosecution by Chalmers of Walaoo, Strickland Brown, Williamson and Boley, the best men ef Marshall county, good .law- abiding cilinos, and who hare never before been charged with violating the laws of thsir country, was not a blunder, but a crime., For daring lo exercise the t elective franchise as freemen, aodt appose tha aspirations of an unworthy demagogue, an effort wss made to humiliate and degrade them, and tor this purpose they were dragged about thacountry like felon. The most atrocioua libels affsc log their integrity aa citiaena were herajdtd over tbe world, laalead ol evading trii aa the guilty always do, they promptly mad their appearance before the proper tribunal and demanded a speedy trial. But aa there was nothing ia ih charges fabricated against them, the prosecution was dismissed, . So the little vulture ravening for prey ind revenge is foiled in his last effort to sustain a fast sink ing cans, The ignominious termination of taese prosecutions is another hope ful siga ot : tha . extinction r.o the passions oorn la war.

Sir Henry Thompson writes to the London 'I think I might, if permitted, offer you a practical hint of some value in connec tion with cigarette amoking, which I think ia not altoeether aDoreciated bv tha anthor of vour notes on the subject. r irst, toe cigarette, witnout a moutb piece, is really never smoked more than half wav through io tbe East, where cigarattea are very cheap. It ia well understood there, aa it is by all practical cigarette smokers, that every inhalation from a ciratette aliarhtlv deterio rates ia quality from the first. A small de posit of i he very offensive oil of tobacco is deposited in tbe finely cut leaf, which acta aa strainer, and interoepta tne deposit as it passes.' Very little of this arrives in the smoker's mouth if he stops when hslt is con sumed. I have seen many Oriental smokers bo consume no more than a third. Turkish ladies, for example, aa I have had personal opportunities of observing at Constantinople, will smoke fifty or upward io a day, but, I men scaraiy say, oniy in we manner x nave criDsd. ...... i , rjeoondly. if a cigarette with a card month. piece is employed, tbe noxious matter may be intercepted by always introducing a light plug ef cotton wool into the tube. If now the cigarette is nearly consumed, a consider able quantity of brown and very offensive matter will be found in the ootton wooL from the evil of which the smoker ia thus pre served. Thirdly, some Tears aoo I deaiznad a cigarette-holder or mouthpieoe,which opened traaavwraaly in the middle, disclosing a smau cavity, wnj.cn ia nlled with eottoa wool. It would eurariss many aeoDle. tieiv hap, that th result of amokias six eiffarette only in this tab i that this plug is saturated with a brown fluid like treacle, of powerfully offensive odor, and disagreeable almost be yond belied. - The wool Una requires to be changed, and in this manner tbe- evil of smoking ia very greatly diminished. Several ef these were constructed by a well-known tobacconist class to your offios in th Strand. Liaatly, tha maximum of pernicious influ oa which ocean through cigarette smokinr. ia attained by tha practice of inhaling tha amoke largely direct into the lungs, where it comes into immediate contact with the cir culation, and the toxic effect is so strongly perceptible after three or four consecutive inhalations, and so felt by a sensitive person to the very tips of tbe fingers. I have no doubt that the effect would in most eeeee be notably -recorded by ths ' sphygmograph. Such amoking is, of course, or ought to be, exceptional, au tne fragrance, with a little only of the toxic effect, ia obtained by ad- oi ue amoae into tbe mouth onlv. by passing it throogh th passages of the pharynx and noe; but it is the pul monary inhalation referred to often asso ciated with cigarette amokinr," aad rarely ith the Pipe, which conatitatae tha chief mischief of the cigarette. I saay ssy in paeing, that the well-known Oriental method of emekiag, practiced by aaeane of the warghiUK, in which the smoke, though drawn through water, psrs-s invariably through tbe lungs, explains the powerful ef fects whicb sometimes unpleasantly surprises novices it its nee. - Smoked, then, simply and with coKoo wool interposed, I do not hesitate Jo regard tbe cigarette is in least potent, aad therefore-, the leet injurious form of tobacco emoting. Without this precwion it msy be made, although not necessarily, the most ready mesne of conveying tbe active prin ciple of tobacco, by means- of smoke, into the system. y v - - - ' ISSPKCIUU IJIMIGBAFsTs.

The Bangle Craze Women as Treasury Experts Miss Alcott oa Girls Fashion and tie-sip. Jane Grev Switahelm writea as follows in tbe Pittanurg Gaiette: I hava sud that doc tors sre tbe only class ot men in position to do aovtbinr worth tbe doing in any effort to stop tbe crime of abortion, and tbie is l-o, because it originate qui'e as mncn it nol more in physical than in mirtl disease. Oor civilization baa been so larg-ly built oo hoDre of the hereafter that it is peculiarly deficient in its requirements for the hour. It baa taught ua to live lor wb at is to be at the expense of what is, and so io physical cul ture leavee us far below the Pagan Greek. Man in "Christian civilisation, sees no beauty in the female form unices there is a notch alt around it, like that with which a woodman deadens a tree. Tbe deeper the notch the better is he pleased, for it makes s convenient rest for hie arm. In making this notch for his admiration and convenience woman as surely, if net as shortly, tskes her own life aa tbe woodman takes that cf the tree. and completely unfits herself for the ordinary duties of womanhood. Alter it is made, she is no longer a help-meet for a man, but a creature wbe must live by bis generosity ana bounty. She is totally ouEl for wife or mother, acd is good lor. nothing bnt riding m a coacb. lotlying oo a nils and nura'ng email dogs las torm which was worshiped and immor tallied by the Greeks was that of a woman who drove foor husre. snorting horses abreast or took a bull by tbe horna and led him to the altar as fearlessly as ahe stepped into her bath; but tbe form which is divine lo a nine teenth century Christian is that of one who faints at the sight of a mouse and sbrieke over a spider or angle-worm. Well, the main dinerence between tbe two specimens ot fe male homanitv is that of the notched and the onnotcbed. The one adds to the census at a fesrfui cost of snguish aod risk of lif The other waa aad ia not materially incon Venienced by the coming of a baby. In the trial hour preceding the birth of the King of Borne the doctors in attendance consulted the hnsband and father as to his choice be tween tbe life of hie wife and that of h e child, snd his answer was "Ssvs my wife." Now, not a small part of the abortionist's busioeea cornea from tbe aame soorce. Tae husband fears for tbe life of his wife io the trial hour the prospective mother fears for her own. Our unnatural civilisation has surrounded the operations of nature witn such abnormal sufferings aad danger that people grow more and more unnatural in endurina or trrinr to avoid them. Not ooe woman in every 1000 of the upper walks of life in any civilized land breathes below the diaphragm. Tbe fashionable nolch pre vents ils rise and fsll in about 999 ladies aod gentlemen. Their vital organs are all out of place; every operation of nature is performed with difficulty it not pain; every oreatn ia limited; every pulsation of the heart wind ed. Many of onr women are no more -fit to become molhera than are the wire frames oa which they model their own deformity. To those who do add to tbe population, tbs ex pense caused by these deformities becomes a serious item. The cost of doctors and a arses and appliances fools up fast aod makes a large hole in a year's sa'ary, and, to asoid the risk and pain and expense thousands re sort to foeticide. ' Thousands of women de stroy their own health, or, unintentionally, take their own live to avoid falling into the hands of a tuaie doctor; for tho male occeucAotr is sn unnatural pro duct of sn ann&ior.I civilisation and one that alwaya adds to the risk ef eB when the sternest necessity demands his pres ence. Whatever the inspiration or non-inspiration of tbe Old Testament may be. it abounds in lessons of wisdom, snd no doubt tbe authors gave Us..Ireeiy ol their best thoughts There is evidence that the story of the sojourn and increase of the Israelites in r-xrpi wss at .least founded on fact, and tbe increase seems to be accounted for on the ground that it waa women alofie who hsd charge oi women in the crisis of maternity Woman doctors might now lift us out of the slough into which we have fallen, but where are we to find the women who can be made into doctors? A feClaie cai-tcature of human ity, who has tottered up from babyhood in high-beeled buttoned boots, one who' has spent years stroggiog to move her legs inside s pull-back or a maas of long heavy akirts, one wboae blood must run a blockade at both ankles, both knees snd the waist, ia much better fitted to become a tlude than a doctor. You cannot lessen the natural circumference of a woman'a waist Without stunting her brain. Xou csonot convert her body into a swab stick for wiping the streets without muddying her brain. You cannot send her down street inside a mule-load of flounces and bugles, rolling and pitching like a ship witb torn aails ia a short-chop sea, without unset tling her brain. So we have a woful lack of brain power on tbe female side of the bouse, The want of women must, for many a year, conhne ua to a very limited supply ot woman doctors, and all we can do is to aDDeal to such doctors as we have and ask them to en force the laws of nnture, and so save us from tbe disgusting crime which grow out of tbeir violation. Of course uo one or two doctors can compel er induce his or their female pa- txeuts to take on their corsets aod bands, to remove all external pressure from tbe walls of tbe cheat and limbs and suspend their clothing from the shoulders; but this might be done by medical associations. I hey could certainly correct that Vicious taste in men, which leads them to admire a waist which looks as if it had been cut out of a tolid block of white oak; and is more the form of a black ant than of anything human. They could certainly make some effective protest againat slow suicide, out of .which comes : so large a part of the crime now attracting public attention. The women wbo murder, or consent to the murder of their unborn children, are generally, if not alwaya, tbem selves half dead. Tbeir brains sre starved, their hearts benumbed by imperfect circula tion. Their souls have been rqoeezed io, and padded out, to bt tbeir miserable apolo gies for bodies! There is ne room inside an eighteen-inch waist for mother-love or a conscience or anything bnt dyspepjia snd the doldrums. The things we call women are simply small packages of aches and pains, done up in velvet and lace, and topped out witb os' rich plumes. Male doctors and male priests have had the controlling of these for centuries, snd a pretty job they have made of HI Aa for the priests tbey now hsvs more than they can do, and we muat look to the doctors to undo their united work, so far aa to get woman back into some- tiling like tbe shape in which the Creator made her. Then the abortionists will find no clients ootsids the "criminal classes." Vat Baaile erase, Bangles appear on everything hair- combs, belts, garters, lane, tidies, hats, necslaces, beset pins and finger-rings. But tbe mo:t popular use is for bracelets. The first step a girl takes toward tho accumula tion of bangles is the purchase of a pair of very narrow band bracelets of either gold or silver. This trinket should be supplied with a omber of tiny hook, to whicb the bangles are attached as they sre received. Tb a ie all sbe csn do in tbe matter. Her admirers those scrutinizing young cbsps wbo are al ways ia search of some attribute or ome characteristic which does not exist most complete the fancy. Where the bracelet is silver, a ten-cent piece is secured, and the side with the denomination on i s scraped off snd polished, after which it is engraved with various lines and curves, according to fancy, and the initials of the giver. A hole is then bored, and a fine piece of cbsin sttacbed, by which it is hang on the bracelet. The num ber varies, but msy be sny number, aod no matter how many she has received, like a street-car conductor, ahe ia slwsvs sble to find room for one more. Although six pend ants are sufficient to properly equip a brace let, there ie a atrong aversion to even num bers. So, when the charms are ia pairs, quiet etrategy ia bad recourse to in order to make this number odd. No objec tion then is msde to s proffered bsngle. out straight the sly little maiden is utterly miserable uatil aome gentleman makes the number odd again. As the gtf is sre nearly all from gentlemen, it is a pretty hard test of friendship to hsve a pretty girl flaunt a pretty trinket on a pretty white arm in his lace, and know that his monogram is not among tha chosen one. AU men have not tha strength of good, stupid St. Anthony, aad cannot withstand the ordeal. The result ia that these bangles accumulate so rapidly was tne ntue neue is at a loss wbat to do with them. Not unfreauentlv the monosrrama of the indifferent are hung on garters or trim the end of table scarfs or felt tidies snd mantis hangings. In the East some ingeni ous girls wear them areund the bottom of apron overs kirt. Aa a whole, tbe fashion is not a pretty one, for the simple reason that it is ioua. WeHssesi mm Tussewij topca-ts.

Oor lawyers read tbs aame text-books and cite tbe same authorities as lawyera in New York or Boston. Our court are as familiar with the names ot the works of Story and rveni as are tne courta ot Washington or New York. A dicruaa by Lord Hard wicke or 1.3rd btowell aa to a point not covered bv suthority is listened to with as much defer ence in the Supreme Court of the United Htatea aa in our own courts of lustice. We cannot reproduce in prosaic modern days sny tning like tae pretty story about Athenian captives gaining tbeir liberty because tbey could repeat verses ot JSunpideat the eh approximation to it is the fact that s nan m-y any day owe hia property, or, it mas be, even bia life, in Chicago or Baltimore lo be ing able to cite some passage in hia f vor from Coke, Hale or other sages of E04 liah Uw, Transplanted to America, the com non law, of which the Cbief Justice is th Lead, use acquired a dominion wider than tbat over adicb xtoman jurisprudence in it palmy daya held sway.

So msnv aii the points' of similarity that it would bs easy to overlook the real differ ences between the legal profession Here snd in the United Slates. One of tbem ia the much more important place whicb it bolds in ths Islter. "In no country in tbe world," aaid Burke, fully a century ago, with refer ence to America, "is law so general a atody," and thia remark atill holda good. Law. is and alwaya haa been regarded there as a road leading to all greatneas. Usually about two-tbirda of the members of Congress are lawyera. They swarm in Journalism They become "railroad meat," or great financiers. Tbey pull ths wire, organize parlies, snd play a political part altogether out of pro portion to that which belongs to ths same class here. Our lawyers, even the greatest of tbem, have rarely had more ihan a sec-' ondary position ia politics. On the other hand, from Hamilton's time - to our own, th sams class in tbe United Stated haa always been in tbe very front rank of party warfare. It is. moreover, a much more numerous cisss tbsa with bs. We bave, to' be sure, no Ire it of lawyers; but sn average American town will contain three time aa many members of ihat profession as sn English town ct equsl size. Some diff-rsnees in lawyers here and there which etrlk every observer, msy be eecrib- abla te tb character of legal education in tha two countries. There are nlentv of law schools ia ihs United States there are, in fact, more facilities for legal instruction tban hsrei sod, as men who havs been eminent aa advocates or judges do not despise the duties of the professor, the instruction is probably of a better Quality tl an what we bave. But not a few oi the men who climb to the top of Ihe lecal tree in the United States, do so without tbe aid of much book learning.- Tbe list of eminent judges who Were Inmber- cuttersor bargemen in their youth, bnt WhO( smitten with ambition, took to reading stray copies of Blacksione by tbe light ot a pine knot, wbo were first successful in winning verdicts in local disputes, and who by-and-by became chief justices of their own States, or rose lo high pi sots in political life, is long; Thia is an honorable feature of Amensan life It mesne a succession of sble, clear-headed men who know Ihe world even better than their hooka; and it is s minor drawback that it occasionally de prives the ntterancea of even the highest tribunsls of finish and refinement, which may be, site' all, but secondary judicial vir tues. And, indeed, there have been Ameri can lawvens who were deficient in no virtue which either Ihe English beach or bar in its best daya could boast. One hss only to re call the late Horace Binoey, revered for hia beauty of character aa much aa tor bis tal ents, the center of a cultivated circle, aad preaidiog with a certain majestic grace over the American ear lor many years, to own thst it has not lacked its share ol MINDS OF BAKE BBFIBFJUsTT. If one were to examine the history of lbs Bostoa and Philadelphia Bars, one would see that the connection between law aad literature bas always been close; snd that if it were not the practice, after th fashion of Mansfield, to "drink champagne with the wits," it was the aim of advocates such as Choate snd Pinkney to prepare themselves by eedulous cultivation of litersidre for forensic success. Here we touch soother point of contraat. Mr. Justice Stephen ob serves, in his recently-published book, thst eloquence hs died out in onr criminal courts, and he might have added ia civil courts also. No one st the English bar cul tivates with coospicuoas suooees ths srt of which ths preeeot Cbief Justice sad bis pre decessor wers masters, and it is needless to say, it is rather despieed by those who are not proficient in it. . Thia la different from the American bar. Aa America advocate of repot ia, aa a rule, much more fluent and ornate ihan hi English brother; aad the leaders of the Americsn bar, aoch as Mr. Evarts, aspirs to s style of eloquence rar-ly veotursd opon here. Tbe tradition as to this art bss never been quite tbe sams in tbe two countries. Even florid English sorenic speakers, such a lalfoord, srvre eiinplici'y itaelf as compared with the standard set up snd followed, say, By ioaniel Webster. Erskios loved displsy. sad rook ore, it waa said, to pot io front of bim his books in a p.cnresque heap before be began lo addrese a jury. Eve he, however, waa unaffected and onrdjrned m cempariaea witb Pinkney, who addressed, we are t Jd.tb Supreme Court in the garb of a full-blown dandy of the day, bright colored gloves not eicepud. And thia taate, somewhat modi fied, it is true, has lasted to th preseat time, 1 hose who bave heard the late Mr. Daoa or Mr. Sumner pleading will agree that tbe tireoste sis Ie of speaking of lb two eoun trie is d.c:dtdly unlike, aad they will not be prepared to giv off-hand th palm to lb Engliah style, which, if business-lit aod to tne point, is so often slipshod and so rarely elegaot. These are but a few, and perhaps the smslleet, of Ihe point of dissimilar ity. American lawyers might claim with considerable cogency that Ihey had cultivated not merely tb grace tf t'ieir profession more assiduously to an tha English bar. but that they were accustomed 10 look at new legal questiooa raiaed by ihe circums an--ea of modern society with s fe dom aad breadth of vis wbith is very rare here.
