Acute Miseries Often Memorized into Chronic Grief. a to in Ambition Even Duty May Assuage and Indeed Quite Heal the Wounds of the Slighted Lover-The Wor ship of Realities. Since Washington Irving wrote hl§ story of "The Broken Heart," no one else has ventured to write one bearing a similar title. Wo have grown more cynical and literal. It has been shown that anatomically speaking, hearts do not break—at least, they very seldom do—and wo refuse to accept the phrase in its metaphorical implica tion. Probably no burlesque was ever more enjoyed than "Camille; or the Cracked Heart. 11 Its enormous ab surdity was indorsed as a just satire upon the facility with which that or gan was assumed to be shattered. At very long intervals we read in the newspapers of a heart that has liter ally burst from excess of anguish in the person whoso life blood it pro peled. Such a physiological phenom enon is sure to awaken interest at a period which worships reality so much that when Joshua Whitcomb in the "Old Homestead, 11 washes his face with actual water from a bona fide pump, the audience breaks into a rapturous applause. But in hearts that metaphorically break there is little belief. The world is apt to turn up its nose at them and say it is a pity they had nothing bettor to do. Tho world believes in being amused when it is not at work; and there is no amusement in discovering that here and there a human being is so worried and stricken with life's bewilderment as no longer to be capable of holding up against it bravely. There are a good many strong and coarsely healthy natures, incapable of feeling pleasure or pain with extreme intensity, who take the ground that nothing is worth that abandonment of sorrow which leaves mind or body too weak for battle. Take, for instance, one of the deepest of all griefs, the treachery, perfidy and ingratitude of one whom we have long and profound* edly loved, in whom we believed more completely than in ourselves; for whom we would have laid down, if necessary, almost all that the world esteems good. Whence is tho compensation to come that shall be balm to tho wounded spirit, cause it to feel any thing like the happiness which once is felt, and pre sent to the imagination aught where with memory will not interfere by call ing back tho presence that has so won ton ly departed? What is tho secret which explains tho fact that we still cling, perhaps through years, perhaps through a lifetime, to tendorest recol lections of those who have repaid love with insolence, devotion with indiffer ence, generosity with selfishness, mag nanimity with meanness? Is such tenacity weakness? Then it is a weak ness in which some of the best women excol and some of the best mon are proficient. Is it explicable on the as sumption that those who are as faith less as they are fascinating have an in defectible charm of temperament and manner which is the rarest possession of the most invincible virtue? Ho the false and the treacherous bind us by a spell which honor might bo glad to own? Does Lothario remain potent, even to those he has abandoned, be cause his magnetism is sweeter, finer, subtler than Chevalier Bayard's? Then again, do hearts really break? always in the metaphysical meaning. Is the shock over so violent and per manent that life loses forever after a considerable portion of the comfort and happiness it formerly had? l)ocs not tho deceived friend, when the frenzy of tho first twenty-four hours is over, soon recover from his disillusion and not only conduct his business though nothing important had hap peued, but eat with undiminished ap petite and sloop dreatnlossly and well? Does Werther, even if he abstains from suicide, always live on with a heart which simply performs its muscular duty in a manner more or less im paired, to bo sure, but which never more beats to passion, because passion can never more be felt? Are there not Camilles who forget their Armands as they conquer their consumption and settle down into unremorseful and demi-respeotable middle age? Do im measurable .disappointments always make existence a desert? Is there not such a thing as forgetfulness of acute miseries instead of mem orizing them into chronic griefs? Does not the expectant treatment often cure the most bruised and bleeding soul— expectancy that still looks for happiness, both in this world and the world to comeP I» there ue true j in as of be of of is 1 philosophy in that vulgar maxim which reminds us there are as good fish in the sea as ever were taken out? Can it lie possible that any two souls, in spite of vast divergences, are so made for each that when sundered by imperative fate neither again can ever find a twin? We are not wise enough to answer all these questions which we so blithe* ly profound. As year after vear multi plies one's experience in human lives he meets at distant intervals perament so lovely in the warmth of its sunshine, the brightness of its beau ty, the sweetness of its inhalations, the purity of its labyrinths, and the tan talization of its mysteries, that to yield is as natural as for the plummet to seek the bottom of the sea. Who shall define the magic of a touch, the secret of a tone, the enchantment of a look, the mesmerism of a caress? Nay, who shall explain the sorcery of a presence, the witchery of an in Hue»»? Shakespearo says tera To keep an adjunct to remember thoe Were to import forgetfulness »beautiful exaggeration which only a poet's heart could invent. Yet who that has ever loved does not keep an "adjunct, 11 docs not cherish a portrait, a handkerchief, a tress, a flower, any thing in which is blent the aroma of a pÄ'sonaüty passionately loved, irre vocably vanished? There is a good deal of • nvoiced suf fering in life—the suffering that is due simply to dispeled ideas. It is shallow to hold that such suffering is morbid and easily remedied. Sorrow of this kind is morbid only when it is so self encouraged as to paralyze action. Whatever remedy exists is found in the line of constant effort Un fort 17th i - j Journal. healthy directions, unate are they who, unable to make effort themselves, have no one to in arouse them. Sympathy acts merely as a sedative if given in too large a dose. There comes a time when change of medicine is necessary. The platitu dinous author of "Proverbial Philoso phy 11 never said any thing falser in its moaning than "If the love of the heart be blighted it bloometh not again." The same love, of course, does not bloom again, any more than the flower reblooms that is trampled in the mud. But a fairer flower may burst its petals and a sweeter love evolve to speech through passionate silences. It seems cold and hard to turn from precious possibilities liko this and maintain that ambition, to say nothing of the russet-gowned virtue, duty, may occupy the energies which for merly thrilled to more palpi tant vibrations. Yet ambition is practically a good substitute for love, when faithlessness of lover or sweetheart has left the feelings arid but yearning. Duty is a better substi tute still; but ah! one must fall in lovo with duty in order to do one's duty with content Such love is passion less. Duty is kissless and caressless. Our hands, our lips, our hearts do not thrill beneath her touch, unless, in deed, she holds a martyr's crown be fore us and we reach to it through flame. Still, let us take kindly to this sad-suited duty, who generally wears no garb but hodden gray. If we can take to her kindly and make of lier a lifelong friend, she will reassure the heart which feels that it is breaking and give it a foretaste of happiness perhaps when it shall really break at last.—Home Journal. AN AID TO MEMORY. I'rof. Lamoroux ami the Ruler.* of England In lUiy Prof. Wendell Lamorou:;, of Union Collego, son of tho late Judge Lamo roux, of Albany, is constantly doing kindly things which have the merit of usefulness. Several years ago ho rearranged the well-known lines that give the rulers of England, from Will iam the Conqueror down to Victoria. Tho arrangement is simple, the lines being easily committed to memory by observing that each century (except the seventeenth, which has two lines), is represented by a line, and that an upright dash in the line indicates the middle of tho century as nearly as may be. For tho benefit, of our readers, es pecially our younger ones, who are studying English history, we reprint Prof. Lamoroux's arrangement, with his explanatory notes. Prof. Lamo roux deserves the thanks of all stu dents for thus making English history easy. 1 ith. First, I William th*-.Norman amt William his 12th.

With 4th George and 4th William, Vtc to I rla's Queen Fach line presents exclusively the record of the century whose number is before it—a couplet, however, being given to the 17th. The upright dash in the line marks the middle of the century. When di viding one name, it shows the King or Kings of that name to have reigned in both halves of the century. In the fifth line Richard III., the usurper and murderer, is nick-named thus, not more for rhyme than reason. In tho seventh line, James 1st is .»ailed thus, to indicate hia Scotch de : scent In tho eighth, William and Mary tire mentioned "n* one," because both were called to reign jointly.—Albany J la .
