WilBon, medical superintendent of MaviB bank asylum, on "The Gymnastics of Rest." He said it was the unfortunate habit of our times to measure the welfare of the people only "by their material prosperity and to ignore their mental distress. The waste oi human material was greater thaD ever, the tear and wear of men's minds Increased, and now, in spite of all our inventions—nay, because of all of our inventions—the world was more than ever in need of rest. Tho nervous system was contrived so as to thrive in an atmosphere of mild impressions, not in one of con stant shocks and jarB. True, we could become accommodated to shocks, to noise and din, but we be. come accommodated to them only by using up energy. It would repay us to get away from noise and din even for a short time. Just as noise was to the ear, dinginess and the dull gray atmosphere of cities were to the eye our eyes and our brains were adapted for richer colors than the life of cities afforded. There was perhaps a greater evil which city life brought upon the eye. The eye itself, and its nerves and mus cles, was so contrived that in the natural state—in the state of rest— we looked at a distance, but by con stantly looking at objects cloBe at hand we never gave the eye rest. It was not easy for older people to learn new ways, but children should be taught, whenever a glimpse oi distance could be had, to let loose their eyes upon it, to turn to the horizon and rest. steps to mental rest waB the ability to perform the feat—as to the re quirement of which the lecturer gave some interesting hints—oi looking at a distance when there was no distance to look at and rest ing the eye on an imaginary picture of the horizon. A second step to ward rest was the relaxation of that tension in the muscles round the eye, and especially in the muscles of the forehead, which characterized men of the city and busy men every where when they were attending in-1 tently to something which they con sidered important. A third step was the teaching of the muscles round the mouth to "stand at ease" rather than "at attention." This threefold process he called "expansion of the' attention.'' It was a mistake to sup pose that this whole subject was stupid. Nothing was more evident in this bustling age than that most men and women had not the most remote notion of keeping their minds at rest. In play and at work alike we were "pressing"—to use an expression from the language ol golf—nearly all the time, anxious minded and strained. Passing on to the subjeot of "hurry," the lecturer noted that there was a world of dif ference between promptness oi quickness and hurry. The differ ence was that when we hurried we were anxious minded—we were "pressing"—and the excessive ten sion disordered our activities. Next, speaking of panic, the lecturer offer ed various hints for "squandering the attention" by way of minimiz ing the effect of shocks. Closely allied to panic, but more lasting, more chronic, was the vice of the mind which wo called worry. Worry WBB an inability to withdraw the attention from unpleasantness. It was vice which was rampant among us—a most reprehensible vice, because so unnecessary and sc eaBily evaded. If we practiced what he had called the gymnastics of rest, we would never worry. We would feel pain and distress often enough, but our minds would not dwell on the feeling of them.—Scotsman. Etiquette, Books on etiquette are always among the most humorous publish ed. The humor is usually uncon scious, but it is there, and ever} body knows that unconscious humor is of the most killing variety. All such books have for their very base a huge absurdity—the idea, name ly, that a person arrived at the years of discretion ignorant of good manners can be taught them. It is like prescribing remedies for the dead. If the patient had lived, the advice might have been worth lis tening to as it is, it is a trifle late. Another humorous aspect of books on the usages of the most exclusive society lies in the fact that they are as a rule written by people who live in a four pair back. This is hardly the proper habitat for a learned commentator on the intrica cies of behavior at the Patriarchs' Hall.—New York Post Wanted It Harder. "You have an iron constitution, haven't you, Fudger?" "Well, I started out with one, but the world treated me so roughly that I found it necessary to substi tute brass."—Chicago Record. The Razor Shell. One of the most curious of the many remarkable forms of marine life is a species of mollusk called the razor shell, which can excavate holes in solid rocks. This oreature has no English name its Latin name is Pholas. It is found in wide ly separated regions of the earth, but is most plentiful on the coast of the Mediterranean, where limestone abounds. It is frequently met with on the coast of Italy, where whole limestone beaches are honeycombed with their holes. It is still a disput ed point among naturalists as to how this boring is effected. Some think that the mollusk secretes eome acid which softens the lime stone, but others think that the holes are bored by the simple mo- One of the firsl chanical process of grinding. The preponderance of opinion appears to lie with the latter view at present, yet it is said that no one has yet been able to catch the Pholas at work. Jk botu'va of Wealth.
