Or does it hope to improve our State code till i t shall as em p h atically repre­ sent the s p iritof Protestant religious freedom j Such Legislatures as New York a nd Pennsyl­ vania elect a n n u a lly, are fine representatives of evangelical purity ! Laws like this come w ith a good grace from bodies so notoriously free from m anly, honorable principle. M I L D A N D P E R S U A S I V E . We clip the following model of a “ mild, gentle, and persuasive” style of w riting from The World : “ W e are utterly weary a n d sick of hearing the clam or of our foreign population about their right to break the Christian day of rest. We m u s t n o t be run over by th is infidel- a n d insensate crow d.” W A N T E D . A fresh weekly record of good deeds, noble acts, for our Moral Police D epartm ent. We publish this week some noticeable examples, but the world calls for more. If none of our readers can furnish items from Memory’s storehouse, let them extem ­ porize som ething magnificent in the shape of a disinterested act—the remission of a debt, a kindly, generous effort for tlie suffering, loving charity for thc erring, and we will place them on record to encourage like deeds in others. This “ w a n t” is one o f the world’s perpetual “ needs,” and our friends m ay not fear an over supply. T H E U S E O F T O B A C C O . Our readers m ay have noticed in the adver­ tisem e n t in our columns for “ Phonographic Compositors ’ ’ the following clause : “ As I wish all my relations and employ­ m ents to be ju s t and pleasant to m y self and others, I should be unw illing to employ those who injure themselves a nd infringe on o thers’ rights by the use of tobacco or intoxicating liquors.” W e are glad th a t Mr. Graham thus offers his “ public testim o n y ” against the foolish and pernicious habit of using tobacco. His right to impose such*terms is unquestioned, and by thus giving tim e ly notice none need suffer from his desire to m ake his business re­ lations “ju s t a n d pleasant,” which a v irtuous aversion to the vile weed no doubt renders quite impossible in a composing-room filled w ith air poisoned by the fumes of burning cigars a nd vaporized tobacco spittle.

M i s s i L i t t l e H o s m e r , the American sculptress, has returned from her artistic labors in Europe to comfort a sick and aged father.

God has hT- shut up the spirits of bad people in hell, and 0 they can’t come to earth if they would. The souls of saints live where Jesus is, and don’t want to come back to this world merely to please th'ese idle rappers. Besides, Jesus tells usj in the story of Dives and Lazarus, that no good can be done by a spirit returning to earth. ..We may be sure, therefore, th a t God won’t let .either good or bad spirits come here for , nothing. There is nothing spiritual, therefore, about “ the raps.” Jh e spirits are the mere fancies of the rappers. A wise boy or girl will.keep out of the way of all table- rapping and tipping. Thc whole thing is a device of Satan, an evil disease by which that roaring lion hopes to devour many souls.” Two bright eyed little girls brought the paper ,-containing, this samc artieje,, to our/' office soqxe weeks ago.

We miss thfey^ockly calls of those precious little ones, a&’ they came for their paper, lighting the office by their inno­ cent presence. And this explains why we notice o ur correspondent’s request here. Such testimony, as these little children gave furnishes the best antidote to quotations like the; above. They had a short time before parted with a dearly loved father, who had gone to the Spirit Home. And as they spoke so earnestly of his many acts of affection, of his pleasant stories told at evening, they seemed not to regard him as far away. “ Mo­ ther has h ad two communications from him ,” said they, a nd their eyes brightened with a glad happy look, th a t chased away the sad­ ness from their faces, and indicated no very fearful “ disease.” We only wish these little you, a n d your experience will sustain our phi- I losophy.

In your own particular case, however, an unbalanced condition of the brain and its dependencies constitute the true cause of the “ oppressive fullness” in your head, and also explains the source of your m ental fatigue and bodily weariness on awak­ ing in the morning. Remedy : Every night before retiring subject the posterior portions of y our head to a thorough rubbing, chaffing, and sm iting by the hands of another. While endeavoring to sleep do not forget to breathe fully many times. The habit of reading and thinking, or of talking upon any exciting subject after nightfall, is never just to the physical harmonies. Extrem e sensitiveness, either physical or m ental, should be regarded as a morbid condition. “ M ilk , a m i W a t e r . ” —Children naturally love artificial beverages—especially the milk of goats and cows; and they like to imbibe the unfermented juice of f ruit a n d berries, be­ cause such drinks are as natural for mankind as is pure water from the spring. In grape- growing countries men drink more wine than any other fluid, yet intoxication is a sad condi­ tion rarely seen in those regions. But of the future we prognosticate thus : Wine, water , and milk will eventually displace and banish al­ coholic drinks, and all falsely-artistic table- beverages will in like manner be swept from all the earth ; then, when sound health and common sense shall become the rule—and not, as now, tlie exception—the ‘ ‘ wine-cup will be forever broken, and righteousness will everywhere prevail.” “ Fly swifter round, ye wheels of Time, and bring the welcome day!” “ M e d i u m i s t i c M a g n e t i s m . ” N.

She is excessively nervous at times, but anodynes a n d sedatives are not the remedy. For the painful and burning symptoms she should use no preparations in the shape of stim u lating washes. Her pathway to Health leads through obe­ dience to the pneumogastric and self-magnetic remedies. It will be necessary for the p atient to retire very early, supperless, and without warm drinks of any kind. If afflicted with the symptoms, and restless, follow directions in “ Hints to the Debiltated.” (See No. 18.) For breakfast and dinner she may eat and drink whatever and as much as her appetite and reason will honestly prescribe. About two hours after dinner, each day, it will be necessary for friendly hands to rub and pum­ mel the patient, as hard as she can allow it without severe pain, upon the neck and shoulders, down the entire spine, and all the way around the waist. Meantime, remem­ ber, full respirations are necessary. Magnet­ ism by the hand would am o u n t to nothing to one in her condition. She needs the benefits accruing solely from vigorous mechanical pressure and judicious bufferings. But these latter remedies will also prove non-availing and injurious, unless bestowed by the h and of benevolence and sympathy. T. J.
