The writer, like the priest, must be exempted from secular labor. His work needs a frolic health ; he must be at the top of his condition.

A symbol always stimulates the intellect ; therefore is poetry ever the best reading. The very design in im agination is to domesticate us in an other, in a celestial nature.

If your subject do not appear to you the flower of the world at this moment, you have not rightly chosen it Don't Worry About Yourself. To regain or recover health, persons should be relieved from all anxiety concerning diseases. The mind has power over the body. For a person to think that he lias a disease will often produce, that disease. This we see effected when the mind is intensely concentrated upon the disease of an other. It is found iu the hospital that surgeons and physicians who make a specialty of certain diseases are liable to die of it themselves ; and the mental power is so great that sometimes peo ple die of diseases which they only have in imagination. We have seen a person seasick in -anticipation of a voyage before reaching the vessel. e have known a person to die of cancer in the stomach when he had no cancer or any other mental disease. A blind folded man slightly pricked in the arm, has fainted and died from be lieving that he was bleeding to death. Therefore, well persons, to remain well, should be cheerful and happy, and sick persons should have their at tention drawn as much as possible, from themselves. It is by their faith men are saved, and it is by their faith that men die. If he wills not to die, he can often live in spite of disease ; and if he has little or n attachment to life, be will slip away n easily as a child will fall asleep. Men live by their souls', and not by their bodies. Their bodies have no life of them selves , they are only resources d life tenements of their souls, f he will has much to do in continuing the physical occupancy or giving it up. Jnurnul of JMth.
