Not Only the amount but the Quality of the labor a Man can perform depend upon his health. The work savors of the Workman. If the poet sickens his verse sickens if Black venous blood flows through an author s brain it be Clouds his pages and the devotions Ofa consumptive Man scent of Hia disease a lord Byron s obscenities smell of Gin. Not Only lying but a dyspeptic stomach is an abomination to the lord., at least in this life so dependent is mind upon material functions and manifestations of the soul upon the conditions of the body it the materialist hardly states practical results too strongly when he affirms that thought and passion , imagination and love Are Only emanations from exquisitely organized matter just As perfume is the affluence of Flowers or music the ethereal product of an eolian Harp. In regard to the indulgence of appetite and the management of the vital organs society is still in a state of barbarism and the Young Man who a True to his highest interests not at create a civilization for himself. Tlle brutish part of our nature governs the spiritual. Appetite is Nicholas the first and the Noble faculties of mind and heart Are hungarian captives. Were we to see a Rich banker exchanging eagles for coppers by tale or a Rich merchant bartering silk for Serge by the Pound we should deem them worthy of any epithet in Tho vocabulary of Folly. Yet the same men buy pains whose blasted his Haltli blasted All Orchards and Cane Fielda also. Verily the Man who is Phy Siolo wicked does not live out half his Days nor is this the worst of Hia punishment for he is More than half dead while he appears to live. Let the Young Man then remember that for every offence which he commits against the Laws of health nature will bring him into judg ment. However graciously god May Deal with the heart All our experience1 proves that he never pardons stomach Muscles lungs or brain. These must expiate their offences an vicarious what wreck so shocking to behold As the wreck Ofa dissolute Man the vigor of life i Hausted and yet the first Steps in an honorable career riot taken in himself a Lazar House of diseases Send but by a heathenism custom 6f society not buried rogues have had the Ini tial letter of their title Burnt into the Palms of their hands even for murder Cain was Only forehead but Over the whole debauched or the inebriated the branded of the person of the signatures of ii fury Are written.

Now s your time gentlemen do you propose v i sipping a Glass of Beer in on Jcj Corner of the bar room sat a Plain old gentleman who looked like a Pennsylvania Farmer. He.

The old gentleman took the unil requested the bar keeper to Send for a quart of molasses the cheap the kind i use in Thia said Over six coppers to the bar keeper. The molasses was and the old far Mer wild a very grave and mysterious countenance poured it into the hat while the exquisite took out Hia watch to note the time. Giving the hat two or three shakes with signer Blitz like adroitness the experimenter pinned it on the table Anil stared into it As if watching the wonderful process of solidification. Said the Dandy. The old Farmer moved the hat. Well i do i believe it Ain t hardened said he in a tone expressive of missed it somehow or other that time and i suppose i be lost the bet.

Of torts to re in my the roared the you be spoiled my hot that Cost me five dollars and you must pay for j that was it in the mildly answer cd the old gentleman but i la let molasses which is a Little More than we agreed having drained the Lena Cious fluid from Hii Beaver As he Best could into a spit Box the Man of Mouala Ohea rushed from the place his foxy not Miido abated by the sounds of ill sup pressed laughter which followed his exit. He made has complaint at the police a lit appeared that Experiment was tried with his own consent no damages could be recovered there is Only one thing worse than ignore. Ance and that is. Conceit of All intractable fool an Overwise Man is the worst. You Way cause idiots to. Pojl Sophise you May coax Don keys to forego Don Tever think of driving common sense into the head of it conceited person. R is so pleased with his bargain that he Tiro a in a sleepless and tempestuous night As a gratuity English factory children have received the com-1 miser Alion of the world because they were j scourged to work eighteen hours out of the Twenty four but there is Many a theoretic re publican who is a harsher Pharoah to his stomach than this who allows More resting time than he does his watch who gives it no Sun Day no Holiday no vacation in any sense. Our pious ancestors enacted a Law that suicides should be buried where four roads meet and that a cart Load of stones should be thrown upon the body. Yet when gentlemen or ladies com Mit suicide not by Cord or steel but by Turtle soup lobster salad they May be buried in. Consecrated ground and under the auspices of the Church Anatlie Public Are not ashamed to read1 an epitaph upon their Tomb stones enough to make the Marble Blush. Were the barbarous Law now in Force that punished the body of the suicide for the offence his soul had committed we should find Many a a Burn at our Cross roads. Is it not humiliating and amazing that men invited by the pleasures of the intellect and the sacred affect Tionson the heart to come to a banquet worthy of the gods should Stop by the Way Side to feed on garbage or to drink of the circe an cup that transform them to if a. Young invited by selfish principles alone inquires How he shall make his appetite yield him the largest amount of the answer is by Temperance. The True epicurean Art consists in the adaptation of our organs not Only to. The highest but to the longest enjoyment. Vastly less depends upon the table to which we sit than upon the appetite which we carry to it the pallid epicure who. Spends five dollars forms extracts less pleasure from his meal than Many a Hardy la Borer who dines for a Desideratum is not greater luxuries but livelier and if the devotee of appetite would propitiate his divinity he would not Send to the Yellowstone for but Aloea tongues nor to France fix Pate , but would climb a Mou n Tain or swing an axe with health there is no end Quantity or to the variety from which the palate can extract its pleasures. Without health no delicacy that nature or produces can a zest. Hence when a troys his health he destroys so far As he a con a caned whatever of sweetness of flavor and of the teeming Earth can produce. To him who. his appetite try excesses the luscious pulp of grape or peach the Necta Reous juices of Orange Are but a loathing and a nausea. He-has1 turned gardens and Groves of Delicio Struit into gardens and of ipecac and aloes. The name vicious indulgences that the Hammer. The following appropriate panegyric of this primitive instrument which was the first invention in mechanics and also the first in War is taken from the scientific american the Hammer is the Universal Emblem of Mech j Anica. With it Are alike forged the sword of Contention and the ploughshares of peaceful Agri press of the free and the shackles of the slave. The eloquence of the forum has moved the armies of Greece and Rome to a thou Sand Battle Fields but the eloquence of the Ham Mer has covered those Fields or tit Victory or defeat. The inspiration of song. Has kindled High Hopes and Noble the bosoms of Brave knights and gentle Dames but the inspiration of the Hammer has strewn the Fudd a Vii tattered Helm and shield decided not in Jay the irate of chivalric combat but the Fate of thrones a crowns and kingdoms. The forging of a Thunderbolt was ascribed by the greeks As the highest act of Jove s omnipotence and their mythology beautifully ascribes of their gods the task of presiding at the labors of the forgo. In client warfare the Hammer was a powerful Wea Pon Independent of the Blade which it formed. Many a Stout Skull was broken through the Cap and helmet by a blow of Vulcan s weapon. The armies of the Crescent would have subdued Europe to the Sway of Mahomet but on. The plains1 of France their Progress Wafe arrested and the Brave and simple Warrior no saved Christen Dom from the Sway of the Musselmen was Martel i the Hammer the bulwark of the Hammer is the wealth of nations. By it Are forged the Pon Drouha engine and the tiny Needle. It is an instrument of the Savage and the civilized. Its merry Clink Points out the abode of Industry. It is a Domestic deity presiding Over the Gran Deur of the most wealthy and ambitious As Weh As the most Hui Ible and impoverished. Not a stick is shaped not a House is raised a ship floats a Carriage Rolls a wheel spins Spade delves or Fig , without the Hammer. Vhf without the Hammer civilization would be unknown and the human species Only As defence less brutes but in skillful hands directed by Wisdom it is an instrument of of great n Ess and True glow ill.
