"Well, what do you want?" the ma of the house asked.

"THE BUPTUBE Of THE 10JUST WENT OF IHTEBN1L TO EXTERHH RELATIONS**? MEDICAL RECORD. Herbert Spencer, it will be remem? bered, bas defined life as a continued adjustment of internal relations to ex? ternal relations, and it is doubtful whether any definition of death would be better than a rupture of that adjust? ment. Ordinarily, of course, every one : j thinks that be knows when a man is ! dead. But when looked at more close? ly the subject is not quite so simple. For example, shall we say Unit a pa ; I tient is "dead" when respiration i ! ceases? In the writer's experience a J woman suddenly became unconscious and ceased all attempts (even the slightest) at respiration. Under arti? ficial respiration, however, the heart beat for rive hours, when the artificial respiration was given up. Tbe autopsy showed hemorrhage into the ventricles Df the brain. Was, then, the woman "living" during the five hours of arti? ficial respiration, or was she "dead.*1" The question, while it may have somewhat the aspect of a metaphysical juggle, is by no means entirely of that nature. For on it might depend the ? question of survivorship; the question ? j In law of "which died first," involving ! j an entirely different inheritance of I property. Again shall the criterion be the cessation of the action of the heart'.' Brouardel cites a case wit? nessed by Drs. Reginald and Paul Loye, in which the heart beat for one hour in a decapitated murderer, and he himself bas seen the heart-beat per I sist fifteen, twenty, and twenty-five minutes in decapitated clogs, and in those dying from hemorrhage, lt is | no easier if we turn to the brain, for Its functional activities are no more necessarily co-extensive with life than are those of the heart and lungs. Un? consciousness is normally periodic in Bleep and pathologically it frequently j occurs without involving the cessation of "life." The solution of the riddle really lies I in tbe fact that "death" is a negative ! term denoting merely the cessation ol' i "life." This throws us back upon tho I question of what "life" is. Without any desire to dogmatize on this much debated question, "life" appears to be merely a convenient name for a series Df physicocheuiical processes which avowedly differ much in complexity from "inorganic" phenomena, but srhich have never yet been shown to differ from them in kind. On tbe con? trary, the more we learn about physical and chemical phenomena, the more 'physiological" phenomena we are able to explain. The essential of "life" then consists in the capability of re? sponding serially and appropriately, by continual adjustments, to changes in I the environment. It is not the actual demonstration at every moment of its j presence that constitutes "life." For, | unless we are to introduce some meta I physical dodge-tbe-issue (as, for exam , plc, "capable of life yet not living," or i other empty phrase), bodies are either ! "alive" or "dead." i What meaning bas the word "alive" i when applied to the seeds of wheat which grew after having lain thou I sands of years in a mummy's coffin J i Evidently this: A seed represents a collection of chemical compounds j which, under suitable conditions (of temperature and moisture) are capable of producing, by their mutual interac tiona, another series of compounds. : which, in their turn, are capable of ! producing, by their interactions, a third ' series of compounds; the first, second , and third series of compounds repre ' j tenting In their totality respectively the i first, second and third stages in the . development of the plant But, tis . Ryder has shown, this repetition in , heredity is conditioned upon repetition * in environment?that is, the seed will ; respond tn a regular serial order only 1 provided the physical and chemical I forces act upon it in the regular serial ! order to which it has been adapted, , through countless generations, to re? spond. The eggs of fishes when extruded I are flabby and collapsed, and in this 1 condition they appear to be in physico chemical equilibrium. Placed in water, however, during tbe first twenty min j lites they imbibe it, swell, and become ' round and smooth, and fertilization oc? curs. But after the swelling and fer? tilization have occurred, the contents of the egg are in a different physical and chemical condition than when first extruded, nnd this different physical and chemical condition it is which in? volves the next change of state, cleav? age. Yet that tbe latter change is no necessary outcome of the swollen, fer? tilized condition is shown by tbe pos? sibility of inhibiting it indefinitely by a lowering of the temperature. ! The possibility of the continuance of "life" then depends upon the ability of the chemical compounds which (collec? tively and at any given moment) wc term "the body." to give rise to another similar collection which shall be able Inter se to maintain a similar adjust? ment of internal relations to external relations. Conversely, when the forma? tion of such a derivative collection is no longer possible, "death" ensues. Less abstract put, "death" is the name are give to the inability of the organs to act together with the harmony Rrhich characterizes "life." Tho rup? ture of the vital harmony does not. | however, preclude a certain amount of activity of individual organs. Thus, perfused with blood or other suitable fluids, the heart may continue to beat, (be liver to secrete, etc.. although tbe Individual is "dead." This mode of viewing the question seems to be the july philosophical one. For just as there is no possibility of assigning a moment at which, in development, the physiochemical forces pass over into the "vital," so here there is no possi bility of saying when the "vital" forces pass over into the physicocheuiical. All we can do is io set an arbitrary limit. by way of definition, and say that the 'individual" is "dead" when the har? mony of interaction in the "vital i tripod" ceases?Public Opinion. j: ARTILLERY OF THE SNOWS. Noise and I'heiiomeuon of Falling Moun? tain tee, Those who for the first time have ex? plored among the higher mountain ranges of the earth in the season ot early summer, have doubtless beee perplexed at the apparent firing of can? non at various points amid those snow covered mountain peaks and pyramids, a great volume of white smoke boing observed to issue from a lofty emt nonce, soon followed by a loud report as of heavy artillery. It is soon real ized that these explosions are vast avalanches of snow, which, having partly lost cohesion by the increasing heat of summer, are dislodged by their inherent weight, and fall from preci pice to precipice with thundering re vcrberation, the apparent smoke being volumes of powdery snow discharge. high in air each time the ponderouF mass is shattered against some rockj obstruction. To a spectator at a distance tho phe nomenon is sufficiently grand and startling, especially if observe*' through a powerful telescope; but if by any means, whether from a balloon o rotherwiae, an avalanche could bs witnessed from a short distance through its whole course, the spectacle must be awe inspiring and appalling At first a mass of snow perhaps a few acres in extent, and weighing ma nj hundreds of thousands of tons, slips away from the steep slope on which if was deposited, and with a terrific roar the mighty mass bounds over a preci pice upreared a thousand feet or more from the lower plateaux. The stupend ons impact with the snow beneath or this slanting declivity must cause tnt very rocks to tremble and quiver, and raises a dense cloud of particles of frozen snow; thc whole mass then doubled in volume, madly rolling down the slope with ever-enhanced impetuos ity. Continually augmenting in bulk and with more and more accelerated veloc? ity, the great colossal avalanche now plunges downward in its headlong ca reer of destruction with a wild mnmen tum which nothing can withstand. It has left, the snow line, bas cut a great avenue through a pine forest, break ing down trees like matchwood, and in a few moments, with a grinding crash an entire hamlet or village beneath i? wholly submerged, splintered in ter thousand fragments, and utterly oblit? erated from the face of the earth; though the warning roar may probablj have premonlshed the inhabitants tc flee for theil* lives. This, however, is not always praotiea ble, and it is related that on one occa? sion no less than -100 Austrian soldier? were suddely overwhelmed by a pro? digious avalanche which entombed the entire battalion in a snowy sepulchre ?Glasgow Herald.

That the one who demands the high? est excellence in typography, subject matter aud quantity of content*, does the least to help the cause along. That the man who kicks most about the inaccuracy of newspapers in gen? eral is the one who does least to assist in getting the facts accurately when he has au opportunity to do so. That thc man who has it in for news? papers in general has had the bittei truth told about him once by some unusually frank reporter, and bas a big sore spot. That the man who Dring! in the longest obituary of the late deceased was not a model husband always. That the woman who declares lt'? none of the public's business and she "won't talk, so there," always winds up by giving the reporter a rattling good story so that he can't take it down in short band. That the man who begs that his name be left out of the list of drunk! for fear it will hurt his mother's feel? ings never considered that good lady'? sensibilities before in bis life. That the men who spend the most money with the paper kick the least. That if you expect a man to find a compliment about himself you must put it ou the front pago in bold-face type.

THE SABBATH SCHOOL International Lesson Commends for September 20. Subject: Abstinence From Evil, 1 Peter Iv., 1 ll?Golden Text, Epb. v., 18-Meoiory Verses, 1-2?Commentary os tbe Day's Lesson. 1. The true life (va. 1, 2). 1. "Foras much." Compare 3:18. The apostle points us to Christs suffering as an example. "Arm Yourselves." With a resolution such as animated him to suffer all the evils to which vou may be exposed iu the body; and particularly "to suffer death, if called bv Qed to do so for your religion, l'or this will be armor-proof against all your enemies. There is still fighting, tor sin will be molesting vou; though wounded to death, vet will it struggle for life and seek to wound its enemy; it will assault the graces that are in you. You may take tiie Lord's promise for victory; that shall not fail; but do not promise yourself sass in the way, for that will not hold. "He that hath "suffered," etc. It is only hy a severe conflict in which you must be armed with a readiness to suffer with Christ, that thc power of sin over you can be made to cease. _ 2. "No longer should live." Referring to the preceding clause, "Arm yourselves with the same mind that was in Christ, in order to live no longer in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of Cod." We cannot deliver ourselves from the filth of sin; but when we are renewed, taking on a likeness of Christ, then we are armed against the lusts and defilements of the world. "To the will of God." This will be a new life. The only true way to live is to live in harmony with the will of God. What He wills is best and to the Christian is "good and acceptable" (Rom. 12:2). II. The old life (vs. 3, 4). 3. "May suffice." A gentle way of saying we have spent too long a time in our sins. "Ot the Gentiles. The term Gentiles here means evil ones; intemperate, wicked and j wanton; indulging in every sin forbidden I by Ged and man. "Excess of wine," etc. Intemperance was a curse in the apostle's j day, as well as in our own. He utters ! against it condemnation of no uncertain sound. Every person and especially every man of God should be outspoken sgsinst intemperance. "Abominable idolatries." In an age when sensuality was wrought into all forms of literature and art, was blazoned shamelessly in the decorations of private houses, and enshrined in the tem? ples of the gods, the contrast of a chaste and Godly conversation in the Christian community witnessed for the saving and I cleansing power of the Gospel. The ex I hortations of the apostles at once testify j of this contrast, ana urge that it be made j emphatic. 4. "Think it strange." It is strange to I the carnal man to see the child of God disdain the pleasures of sin; he knows not the higher and purer pleasures that the Christian is called to. ''Excess of riot." Rather, "same slough of- debauchery." '"Speaking evil of you." The wicked and dis.elute always have a sneer for those who refuse to share in their evil doings. The wicked do not hesitnfp to speak falsely vhen they meet a Christian. III. An account to be rendered to God (vs. 5, <J). 5. "Shall give account." He hath the day set; and it shall .surely come, though they think it far off. 'I hough the ?ricked themselves forget their scoffs aeainst thc godly, and though the Christi,!!! slights them and lets them pats, they pass not so; they are all registered; and the great court-day shall call them to ac? count for all these riots and excesses, and withal for all their reproaches of the godly that would not run with them in these arays. "Ready to judge." See chap. 1:6. As the salvation of the godly is fully ar? ranged, so is the judgment of their calum? niators, whether living or dead. 6. "The Gospel preached also." They that formerly received the Gospel received it anon these terms. And they are now dead; all thc pain of dying is over for them. If they had not died to their sins by the Gospel, they had died in them, and to died eternally. It is therefore a wise prevention to have sin judged and put to death in us before we die. If we will not part with sin, if we die in it and with it, we shall perish forever; but if it die first, before us, then we live forever. "Live . . . to God." A bitter fountain sends forth | bitter waters; a sweet fountain, waters I that are sweet. A soul living in Cod will j show that life by action. If the heart he I right in thc sight of Jehovah, the outward | iu.tti will reflect His image. IV. Various exhortations (vs. 7-11). 7. ; "End ... at hand." This might have been said at any point of the world's ! duration. To the eternal Lord that made it and appointed its period, a thousand | years are as one day. We think a thou i sand years a great matter in respect of i our snort life. But what is the utmost ' length of time, were it millions of years. j to a thought of eternity? To reach man , thc end of all things is. even after our i measure, at hand; for when he dies the | world ends for him. "Be sober, and watch i unto prayer." Sobriety is the friend of | watchfulness, and prayer of both. When , the affections are kept quietly under con ' trol, and care is taken that even in lawful ? things I hey follow the world hut lightly; 1 when th? necessary duties of this life are ! done faithfully, yet with a mind free and ; disengaged, then the soul can more easily ! turn to sniritual things, and be ready con : tinually for divine meditation and prayer. 8, "Above all things." Paul putt love : at thc head o* 'lie Christian graces, in bia : matchless chapter on charity (1 Cor. 13). j Peter likewise does the same. Paul goes i so far as to say, "Love is the fulfilling of I the law." Charity must be as the crown, 1 or the outer garment, lt must be used by | the Christian ns the most important and i most distinguished Christian virtue. Lort , is the essence of religion. It must be at [ work in the heart ard shown in the life, ! or all other things will amount to nothing. It is shove all in value, because it come* from God, .'md is the one thing that w? may keep throuah life and carn- to heaven willi u?. '('over . . . sins." It delight* not in undue disclosing of brethren's fail? ings, and doth not expose them willingly to the eyes of others. j Ml. "Hospitality." As would often ba | neces^.iry^ toward the suffering. '"Without grudging.'' Net murmuring at the cost oi trouble. "The gift." Endowment of any kind, but especially that conferred by the Holy Spirit?money, ability, influence or whatever God has given. "Good stew? ards." Whatever we have is to be "min 1 istered" to others as God may direct. Wo I are His stewards. What we call our own ! came from God and belongs to God, and we 1 should, as "good stewards," use it to Wu*. glory. If we have an opnortunity to vote against the saloon and rail to do so, in? stead of ministering good to others we will i be putting a curse upon them. "As the oracles." Those who sneak for God must speak His words, what He reveals to them; tney must sneak the truth St revealed in the holy Scriptures. "Minister." Thia may refer to service in general. Our ability is the limit of our obligation. A Floral Clock. In tho public garden3 of Edinburgh. Scotland, is a great floral dial made of golden feather pyrethrum with the twelve hours marked on it. A zinc receptacle in the shape of a clock hard, planted with dwarf vegetation, ls moved by clockwork and marks the time with great correctness. ? "?.? W Death From Sleeplessness.

G. Dun & Co.'s "Weekly Review of Trade" says: A striking contrast appears when comparison is made with the corre? sponding week of last year. Prices were then tending upward in many branches of industry, new business was coming forward more tepidly than it could bc handled, and in the security market all records for activity and high prices were being surpassed. Later events have demonstrated that thc situation was unhealthy and spec? ulative excesses have been followed by reaction and readjustment. Conserva? tism was then the exception; it is now tbe rule. Prospects for steady gain3 and their maintenance are brighter um der the present system. Failures this week in the United States are 181, against 176 last week, 238 the preceding week, and 200 the coresponding week last year, and in Canada 7, against 33 last week, 8 tho preceding week and 19 last year.

"I want them to furnish milk for my children." "How many children have you?" ask? ed the farmer in some astonishment. "Ninety-three." was the calm reply.

Bradshaw, of Guthrie, Okla., cured of a severe case by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound. A great many women suffer with a form of indigestion or dyspepsia which does not seem to yield to ordinary medical treatment. While the symp? toms seem to be similar to those of ordinary indigestion, yet the medi? cines universally prescribed do not seem to restore the patient's normal condition. Mrs. Pinkham claims that thero is a kind of dyspepsia that is caused by derangement of the female organ? ism, and which, while it causes dis? turbance similar to ordinary indiges? tion, cannot be relieved without a medicine which not only acts as a stomach tonic, but has peculiar uterine tonic effects as well. Thousands of testimonial let? ters prove beyond,question that nothing will relieve this distress? ing condition so surely as Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com? pound. It always works in har? mony with the female system. Mrs. Pinkham advises sick women free. Address Lynn, Mass. "I had trouble with my bowels which made rr.j blood impure.
