characteristic of winter. Vegetation dies or fall

animate nature teaches us that there is a paraly?
ing influence in the air, and ought to teach u
that our bodies require an increase of vital powc
to contend with it. Some of oven the warm

and remain in a slate of partial stupefaction unt
the season is over, and the elixir of thosprin
sunshine stimulates their stagnant blood, and rc

the influence of tlio season, can protect himsel
against its inclemency. He has fuel to warm hii
externally, and can tone and strengthen hisintei

exterior Vessels to discharge, in the form of gei
