Therefore glorify God in your body."—Cor. 6, 19:20.  One of the encouraging signs of the times is that people are recognising the fact that there is no virtue in sickness. Vitality ÌH as precious in the sight of God as intelligence. Soundness of brain depends upon the soundness of body. The unsoundness of mind may not bt very apparent, but is actual, all the same. The test 'of the health of the t)ody is happy sensation continuous. We are responsible to God for our bodies.  The appearance of men and women whereever we see them, as well as the testimony brouf^ht in from everj source in regard to public schools and the time allowed for physical exercises therein are suflficien^t to show us that ^s a nation, we are behind the times in educuitur-al work. It is astonishing in view of the past, and in view of the future, th^t men do not see that in a republican government, we must depend upon the strength and power of men and women who carry it forward.  But little is attained without the rounding of the whole man., Greece has given us representative men in every department. We point to Greece tor the greatest orator, creative poet, sculptor and philosopher of the world, Plato intellectually stands at thè head. We must remember then, that that which made the Greeks what they were five hundred years before Christ, was their physical culture as a basis of all their education. In teaching exercises, some of which are original with me and all of which are practical according to principles not heretofore entered prominently into the theory and practice of other instructors in physical education.  I write nor teach in no spirit of antagonism, for I believe every true teacher to be a torch bearer advancing into the darkness. We cannot add to the general illumination of the world by extinguishing the torches of others. Let us live bet ter than our neight}ors if possible, and thereby criticise by example as Michael Angelo did when he'criticised Raphael's frescoing. We roust not discourage any, but openly contribute ail we may; fcr when we are advocating any system of culture, be it mental or physical, it is the welfare of the race that is envolved. The true test of the merit of a meShod is its result.  Some ten years of experience and watching effects has shown that the results of practicing: this method of culture are simply wonderful, more marvelous than I should like even to state. 1 can only allude in passing to the great benefits derived by those who have followed it faithfully, to the many who owe nc^t only health, but prosperity generally, to their knowledge of this simple but wonderful system which may be defined as : Common sense scientifically directed. It is based on one hundred and two movements, and their variations and degrees of action. There are three courses, viz: The scientific course, entertainment course and public school course. There are so many bad ways of performin^good exercises. The best exercise is like the best piece of music; its beauty depends first upon itself, and second upon the way it is performed. The first of all faults in the management of the tx>dv is the use of straight luies when unnecessary; and this has much to do with the fatigue that follows every muscular exertion.  If you will draw a line as straight as you can and' look at it you will see the usual standing attitude of the pupil of either sex, who expects to make progress 'in physical culture. He believes he must stand straight for he has heard tliat the lolling attitude is bad, that round shoulders are worse, and a hollow chest is the acme of error; so he attempts to remove all faults in one straight line. He does not know that the latter is fully as bad an error as any of the former. With the same idea the parents and teachers instruct the round-shouldered to throw the shoulders back in order to overcome the front defect. They do not stop to think that the hollow at the back is fully as serious as that which they have ot>served front. Nature does not teach us to adopt straight lines so she never made one herself. There is no still straight line in the universe aad no motion that proceeds in a straight line. The orbs are round. They swing In orbits that are shaped in curves. A stone thrown in the air does not return straight to the earth but describes a parabolic curve. We cannot force such lines on nature. Straight lines are graceless. The centrai line of beauty is the perfect «qMiry^ of grace. We are prone to forget when we eiiercise thè muscles that much depends upon the position of vital cNTgans. If too low or in any way out of poiltion there will be a great strain and consequent fatigue. This shoulcl^be corrected by the normal walk and proper sitting posture on cu^toned bones md not on the end of the spinip. It is also well t& observe some simple rule of measurement by which we may adjust the bony structure.  Ikhoirf»i^«ikljr a qutstioii of titte when th«^ Jmail go tip « nniversal cry from all fiflim'^bl the'cirUi. "Give us a system 0! pliysical culture that frees the bpdy andiit|^!ttatse it to the highest uses of th^ul»>-that^evelopes beauty, gives etrei^ and endurance.*-We-pieird not for it; urge It not.

Win bft the Clotlng Entertainment In the Star Coarse.  EpWARP B: MEA1IS, Cottages for Rent or for Sale«  ..............JOEriCrt-AAII.IUUUUW.,MAlkK.  There can be no question but what one the greatest musical event this town has ever known will be the concert here Wednesday March 25 by the famous Boston Ladies Symphony orchestra. No similar organisation has ever appeared here, and but for the concerted action of our leading citizens, those who love good vocal and instrumental music Vi'ould have been deprived of the gleat treat in store to be furnished by unquestionably the best organisation of women players in the world The orchestra is composed of twenty-three artists, including one vocal and four instrumental sok>ists and is under the leadership of Frank McKee, formerly a soloist with Sousa. In spite of the fact that this will t>e the seventh annual tour of the Boston Ladles Symphony orchestra it has never come as far east, but ^s season it will play eighteen concerts/ in this state. The fame of this ladies orchestra is known to most lovan of music throughout America. Its perponel has remained practically unchaned since its first tour, so that the ensemble work is well nigh perfect. The players are attractive young women graduates of the big conservatories, and the soloists are recognised stars in the world of music. Mr. Ge^e Taylor, tbe tenor soloist with the ortliestra, made hit debut as a singer in Steinway hall, London, and sang at many of the festivals in England before coining to this country. He has a singularly ai^eet and pure tenor of great compaas. ftfabel Beaman McKee, the violin soloist,"Ix^es being a superb artist is an exceedingly beautiful woman with a charming personality. The other soloists are E. Kalphona Parsons, trombone, Carcrfine G. Kimberly, flute and piccolo, and A. N. Heck, cornetist, all players of marked ability. The program embraces all styles of music, from rag-time to the finale from the Italian symphony by Mendelssohn, The appearance of the orchestra on the stage is always a sij^nal for a storm of applause as all the artists are ex quisitely gowned in evening dress of white satins or silks, with dainty little touches of color here and there, so that both the eye and the ear are charmed at the same time. Those who do not hold course tickets will be wise if they purchase tickets for the Boston Ladies Symphony concert at the first opportunity, for rain or slune, seatS unsold on the night of tlie concert will be too few to be seen with the naked eye.  the staff of the Second Regiment, M.

GAIETIES AT AUGUSTA.  FRANCIS W. LAWRENCE DEAD.  Bar Harbor Loses Another Prominent Summer Visitor.  Francis William Lawrence, president of the Hrgokline National bank and a well known Boston busmess man died at his home, iS/ Mountfort street, in the Long-wood district of Brookline at the age of sixty-four years. The direct cause of death was pneumonia.  Francis William Lawrence was the eldest son of Dr. William Richards Lawrence and Susan Coombs Dana Lawrence and was born in Brookline November 20, »839. He was a grandson of Amos Lawrence, a well known merchant and philanthropist of his day and a nephew of Amos Adams Lawrence; also a great newhew of Honorable Abbott Lawrence formerly United^ States minister to England.  Mr. Lawrence received his early education at Lawrence Academy, (iroton; Phillips Academy, Andover, and at private schools in this city and Paris. For three years he was a member of the class of '61, Harvard, and afterwards studied medicine at the Portland and Harvard medical schools. Soon after the breaking out of the war while yet a medical student Mr. Lawrence went to Port Royal, S. C., as one of the surgeons of the Massachusetts Educational Commission; and after holding that position for a few months received an appointment as aqjting assistant surgeon U. S. A., and was stationed on St. Helena Island, S. C. While there he purchased a large cotton plantation and was quite successful in raising the celebrated Sea Island cotton. At the close of the war he sold his plantation and returned North settling in Longwood in 1866 where he resided until his death.  In Brookline where he had made his heme for manryM» he was a prominent factor in the town's affairs afid served as chairman of the bo«rd of selectmen. He was park commfawloner inany years. For six yean If r. Lawrence served on  Whres of Members of tbe Senate and House Entertain DelightfuUy.  The closing weeks of' the legislature show no abatem.ent in the activities of social life here. Although Lent has put Its veto on dance and ball, the whist party flourishes and gatherings of the social set are fully as enjoyable as ever.  During the season few afternoon gath-ings have been more delightful than the whist party given at the Augusta House parlors on Friday afternoon by a group ot well-known ladies, wives of|members of the senate and house, and all of them prominent leaders in social life here this winter. Seven tables were set for regular progressive whist and two for bridge-whist. The parlors were beautifully decorated with cut flowers and were gay with the March sunshine, so cheerful after the storm. The gathering itself was 6ne of the most brilliant of the winter.  The ladies who tendered the complimentary whist were Mrs. George Eaton of Calais; Mrs. Forrest E. Goodwin of Skowhegan; Mrs. Jacob Pike of Lubec; ,Mrs. Harold Marsh Sewall of Bath; Mrs. Edward Clark of Bar Hart>or; Mrs. Jacob Roak Little of Lewiston and Mrs. Sereno T. Kimball of Rockland, all of whom were elegantly gowned.  The partners at whist were selected by carnations with the number of the table and the partner for the first table annexed thereto. During the afternoon delicious fruit punch was served, and at the close ol the play the most delicious refreshments were served, consisting of chicken andjmushroom timbales garnished with potatoes in dainty rose-shapes; hot rolls followed by Russian tea, cake and ices.  The prizes were silver bon bon dishes and were won by Mrs. Wis well, who is a guest of the .Manleys here, and by .Mrs. McFarland Johnson of Ilallowell. The ladies were untiring in their attention and the elegance of the affair was n, irked as was its refined and distini vL- good taste.  Among the guests were Mrs. Jolin Free-mont Hill, Mrs. Boyd, Mrs. Harry \'irgin wife of the president of the senate, the Misses Manley, Mrs. Wiswcll uf lllls-worth; Mrs. Vaughan, liangor; Mrs. Cyrus Davis, Waterville; Mr«-. .Staples, Lewiston; Mrs. J. Hyde, Hatli. — Lewiston Journal.  MRS. GARDNER'S PALACE TRATED.  ILLUS-  The famous palace of Mrs. John L. Gardner of Boston, which has been for the past year a sealed book to the public, was opened recently to a liinited number. Photographers were absolutely prohibited.  THE MERIT OF DISOBEDIENCE;.:  I came across these words by Carlyltf^ recently, "Obedience is good and todl»-pensable: but if it be obedience to what t is wrong and false, good heavens, there is no name for such a depth of hunsan. cowardice and calamity, spurned ever--lastingly by the gods" ; and they set me: to thinging on the great factor which disobedience has been in the progress of the. human race. There was a time whftR; slaves were obedient to their masters- it. was because they ceased to be, that sUv«rj»y-was of necessity abolished.  In the dark ages (no longer ago than lar the days of Salem witches) people were-obedient to dark and blasphemous creeds-purporting to be the words of a vense&i^ aud cruel God. The disobedient be cane -martyrs, but they opened the way for at broader and sweeter and kinder religion— the religion of humanitarianism and chees^ fulness which is replacing the gloomy okir dogmas.  Women oAce promised to "obey" thei» husbands, and were expected to live up,to> this promise, however brutal, selfish,. o»r vicious those husbands proved to be. tsi was the disobedience of the oMsused' wilt.^ which first led the world to realise- t^tr. woman had a place of her own ia.the -verse and a right to independently. cTSLkt -that place of usefulness. And it was disobedience which forced men to a higher^, realisation of their own responsibiluies ir marriage.  Children were expected to obey th«i-i parents and to follow whateveroccupatior.^ or calling those parents selected for thei»^. It has always iiivaiiabl been tlie disobedi encc (if the (".od-gifted ones of eartii whici gave the world its artists.  To-day there exists a powerful army o men in the land—known as the Labo-I'nions. These men refused to be oi)eri . ent to monoply and injustice, and tl i. ■ have done much to advance and better iht .. condition of labor.  But now they stand in iinminen: tiahge: ; of defeating their own and numanity'i best interests by obedience Lo uniust de mands of their leaders.  Let them learn to l)e disobedifeiit tc what(;ver is unfair, wrong, or false, i,'.. they would not prove their own undoing  The world is slowly but surely growings in universal intelligence and in an unae» standing of what is right and wrong.  Tyranny of any kind never had so pooti an outlook as it has in America to-day.  It is meet for all men to realise this,., the laborer as well as the capitalist.  Obey nothing but principle: and prin-ciple demands absolute justice in all out: dealings with one another.  In the long run it is the only thingc: which prevails. Obey principle then— though you are disobedient to every orgaiv isation and individual with whom you are associated.—Ella Wheeler Wilcox ir Booklovers.  The Mount Desert Nurseries  WM.
