On a rough estimate, the brain con tains 500.000.000 colls, each having a consciousness of its own. Your self consciousness, your personality, should he the master of all these willing slaves. They are the genii of the mind, humbly waiting to do your bidding guardians of the vast stores of ideas that you, more often than not without realizing it, have gathered along life's highway.

("let the problem fairly and srpiarely into your head, and then for get it! The little genii of the brain refuse to be coerced: humor them, however, and there is no limit to what they call, and will, do for you. You have to make a decision.

Mr. liernard Shaw, who has fallen foul of "The lied Flag," which he re gards as an air that would ruin any movement, seems to forget that many a good cause has been supported by poor tune. The Belgian national mi llion is a remarkably inane melody but lliat did not impair Hie resistance of Liege. And neither the words nor music of "God Save the King." are particularly uplifting. The air of "Lillibullero," that is said to have whistled James II off the throne of Kngland, cannot have been a very dis tinguished one, for nowadays no one seems to know what if was. On the other hand Hie Russian national anthem was easily one of the most stirring examples of its kind in Ku ropo. I.lit il Hil not save Rus-ia from collapse.
