Solomon in his wis dom did not see fit to reveal these things. Christ revealed this knowledge to his dis ciples; and this knowledge got lost for a divine purpose to make it possible for Sa tan to engraft upon the church tho Coperni- rau system of sstrnnorav. heaven above and a hell below, and that ... ..rentnd to increase and multiply: and after the resurrection to transform into celestial beings, to keep heaven ana tue mighty machinery in and under tne eartn in order, and also for the purpose to per form a drama lor tne amuneiueui ui nuBT-m, according to the progromme, as depicted in i, r.mnt Prrnmid in Euvnt.

Professor Browu-Sequard has rocontly made some exporliueuta that are uot ouly highly Interesting, but show why tho ex pired air of man and animals la so deadly. From the condensod vapor of the expired air he produced a liquid so poisonous that whou Injected beneath the akin of rabbits It produced almost Instant death. This poison he found to be uot a microbo, but an alkaloid. Ills conclusions are that the expired air of all aulmals contains a poi son more fatal than carbonic acid. It Is woli for pooplo to understand these facts. They cry aloud for better vontllotlon and purer air for loss crowding In homo and Ihuich and hall and school room. Scien tific American. Good Cmlo far Growing Girls. It is more Important to train girls to nee the tooth brush live times a day at night and morning, and after each meal to give them crusty bread, that thoy may loarn to eat Blowly and thoroughly, to en force the chaicoal and safe dentifrices, than to classify and dissect plants or in sects for the microscope. The liHle Indi gestions from eating fast, or front reading while they eat, should bo corrected by doses of liquid magnesia, for acidity, or the citrate of magnesia for bilious and torpid conditions. Banish books and pa pers from tho table at meals, unloss to read out un Item or two of Interest to give tost to tho general chat. Teach young folks to be entertaining at the table, and welcome Joke and fun there and every where out of church. ' Chock nothing but 111 nature, and lot this reliovo itself by a smnrt, snappish fit, rathor than suppressed peevishness for a dpy. There are sound medical reasons for this advice, In allowing tho uorvous chargo to paas off and a healthy reaction to take Its ploco. It ought to bo a great cause of gratitude to know that most of the Ul humor In the world Is physical, and that It passes off with rest, If over tired, or by reaction from sudden shock or stir ring up. when the nerves suitor from con fluomcnt.
