The idea is not new that a family
physician should be pin ployed lo kecj) n fumi'v in pood health, and should he compensated for this ser vice rather than for attendance in sicklies?. Few diseases attack hu man beings which do not give warning by premonitory symptoms which, if heeded, and promptly treated, would 6ave the victim from an acute attack. There is scarcely anything which people, especially busy people, and whose lives are, therefore, of value to their families and society, are so apt to neglect as the premonitory symptoms of break ing down in health. A slight cold that results in a hocking cough is neglected until it develops the teedB of consumption. The malarial in fluences which arc so widespread are allowed to fasten themselves permanently upon the system, in stead of being vigorously dealt with in the beginning, and the result is months of ill health and probably an undermining of the whole phys ical constitution. People overwork themselves and pay no heed to the protest of bodily exhaustion which warns them that nature will take revenge for this imposition upon her. "Women especially become the victims of nervous diseases, which render their own lives and the lives of those around them miserable, nil from neglect. It would, therefore, seem reasonable that a change in the method of society in the employ ment of physicians (which should employ them at a stated salary to watch over the bodily health and give needed hygienic instructions lo families) would be a very sensi ble one; and that the physician whose patrons were kept in the beat health thoul'd be the most pop ular and the best remunerated. But these arc days when people must economize, and when a favor ite method for securing and prac ticing economy is combination for me purpose 01 procuring any ile pircd service a the lowest possible rate. The latest illustration of this tendency in the American mind and methods h the formation in some of our most progressive Eastern cities of health societies. These are con ducted on the principle that pre vention is better than cure. The families composing the society pay so much a year into the treasury ot the society, and elect a physician, lo whom they pay, from the fund thus created, a good salary. He makes the enre of the health of these fami lies his first concern, visiting them etaledly, and observing for himself what is the state of their health. Ho also gives to them occasional lectures on hygiene and dietetics. Members of the societies are not tempted to neglect slight indisposi tions for fear of incurring heavy doctor bills, but repair to the physi cian for advice upon the first s.wnptoms of illness. There is no temptation to the physician to "cherish" a case of sickness, for his reputation depends on his be ing able to keep his society in good health, and especially to pre vent severe attacks or disease. Sen sible people would much rather pay for health than for sickues, and so the feeling is excellent all around. St. Zouis Post. FushionuMc Wives. The fashionable wife, says Lon don Truth, looks on her husband's money as spoil-something which he wants to guard, and she to seize. It is no joint property which it is a much her interest as it is his to save and use wiely; but an enemy's possession which it will be her gain to loose. A for companionship tovjours peril rix pall, and an even ing spent with her husband alone counts as the ne plus trftra of deadly dulness. Personal love for him has died out. if even it once existed un der the guise of pas-ion because ot novelty and, whatever she may be to others, her husband finds her uniformly cold and repellent. Motherhood is her bugbear; chil dren unwelcomo intruders; and there is no more miserable woman extant than the fashionable wife with a baby, that hinders her from joining in the season's vulgar pleas ures. Essentially selfish and shal low, love has as little meaning for her as the doctrine of dutv or the glory of sacrifice; and those who know her stand aside in a kind ot wonder at the scheme of creation which include, among its ofl'-els a being without uses, and without virtues a woman with presumably a soul like any other, absolutely destitute of thelovo which saves the world from worse than death, of the reality which seeks truth and lives in it, of all nobleness of aspiration. and all righteousness of life, a wo man whose god is pleasure, aud her sole religion, fashion. "What !" said a young lady to a sister companion, "you are-not go ing to marry that tall, lean, slender, consumptive -stricken fellow, are you?" 'Yes, she is," volunteered the young lady's little brother, look ing up from his broken cart-wheel : "she's going to marry him and use him for a carpet-stretcher P The boy and the cart-wheel pasted out through the same door. Don't imagine that you cau cor rect all the evils in the world. A grain of 6and is not prominent iu a desert. AphorUMx front BC utile. TRANSLATED BV C. C. S. Scolding sermons arc the cheapest of all. To be cheated is no calamity, but only to cheat. Xo one is so outrageously fooled as the suspicious man. It is not the Soul (which exists also in the brute) but the Person, that is immortal. At last the whole material orjjan- i ism of the animal being becomes excrctncntitious. Our capacity of Feeliug is des tined for eternity, ns well ns our capacitj of Understanding. If Death rent aeuuder personal relations, it would be absurd to feel the wish and duty of loving. To whom this life does not appear lofty and estimable, in him there can be no true lougiug niter the fu ture life. It is implied in a perfect marriage that the wife shall be just that as a woman which the husbaLd is as a man, and vice versa. It is with beauty of soul in the two sexes, as it is with a coin, of which we cannot say which is finer, the obverse or the reverse. We cannot keep too distinctly in mind, how high the consciousness of Christ stands above that even of his most cnlightcued apostles. How often does God intervene by a miracle iu the wider sense in the mere course of nature, by bringing about a sudden natural death ! Death is not, as is the common opinion, the severance of Soul and Body altogether, but only the sev cranceol the Soul Irom iheinalerial Body. Regeneration is not perfectly ac complished until after death. Not until the spiritual body has actually come lo consummation, is Regener ation actually accomplished. Pauiiuism in the strict sense ap pears to have .been as good as ex clusively attached to the person of PhuI. Not until the Reformation did it find its proper field of activ ity. It is astounding how far the idea of the Kingdom of God, which in the circle of Jesus' ideas, stands so prominently in the foreground re cedes into the background in the consciousness of his apostles. There was not at the start a Christianity, but only a Christ. He had first to be translated into a Christianity, and this was an irk some and tedious task, iu whose accomplishment Paul was incom parably the most important person. For the Regenerate there no long er exists after death any further occasion for sinning anew : for the outwaid source of fleshly as of selfish sin is iu his case henceforth stopped up, with the putting off of the material body, the primitive principle of both. The bodily torments of Hell will, it is true, not be merely sensuous, but. on the other hand, they will not be wholly unsensuous, inasmuch as the bodies of the damned have not attained to pure and actual spirituality. Their approximative spirit will be ever more and more dissolving into matter, and so they will become ever more susceptible of material pain. If it cost the early Christians so much to make up their minds to break with Judaism, this, among other reasons, was because they felt it hard to detach Christianity wholly from the political commonwealth, and to base it upon an altogether religious community upon a Church. For without this the severance could not be made. Of the conse quences of this we in-iy well believe men had a foreboding, even though only an obscure foreboding. Continued. Mclioolroom Headaches. Many people who have public school teachers among thciracquaiu tance arc firmly ot the opinion that the schoolroom has a headache ss tem all its own, and their impres sion would be strengthened it they were to interview boys and girls. There is nothing strange about the complaint; the only wonder is that it is not continuous aud that any body escapes it. With systems of heating and ventilation that are al most uniformly defective, and worse yet, under the control of janitors who have no knowledge whatever of these departments ot their busi ness, and who are as apt as any other men to neglect or dispise what ever they do not understand, many of our schoolrooms are boxes al most hermetically sealed, into which hot air is being driven and com pressed. The heat is frequently in tolerable, the expired breath and other physical emanations of the children polute the air to a degree extremely dangerous to health, so teachers aud children, who, at nine o'clock entered the room iu fair health and spirits, emerge at noon with listless step, aching head and deranged vital organs. Should a teacher's nature protest against breathing iu poison and sweltering iu it, up goes a window, and straight way all the children in its immedi ate vicinity are chilled and tempo rarily relieved from one danger onlj to submit to another. The condi tion of the air in schoolrooms is no secret to Boards of Education ; it , ., , . . - ..I has bcon the subject of somo 6tatis- tics, by experts, which forcibly sug gest the Black Hole of Calcutta; but what is or has been done to remedy it? IIor many teachers are com petent to use such ventilating facili ties as their rooms possess? Their own frequent headaches and those of the helpless children show that the number is very small, and the same e fleets indicate that but few janitors need fear to compare their records with that of the late lament ed King Herod. iV.

In matters relating to the farm, orchard and ardcu, it is unsurpassed, and yet it does not ignore the family circle.
