DO HEARTS EVER BREAK?
Acute Miseries Often Memorized
into Chronic Grief.
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
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

pÄ'sonaüty passionately loved, irre
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
unate are they who, unable to make
effort themselves, have no one to
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
AN AID TO MEMORY.
I'rof. Lamoroux ami the Ruler.* of England
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
