SATURDAY May 10, 1K79.
The question is nt how cheaply we
can manage to keep soul and bocty to
gether, but how we can bring both
body and soul to the highest condition
of vitality and power.
To live is something more than to
exist. The questions are: How can
e feed intellect and affection, con
science, sympathy, imagination, rev
erence, as well as the physical sj'stem?
AH pinching and restricting of diet is
injurious in the lonjj run.
The bean man, the bran-bread man,
the one meal a day man, the man who
goes mousing around the world intent
only on cheapness, never makes tin
scale of power kick the beam. He
wastes more than he saves. He checks
an income instead of stopping an out
go. The men who make the most ado
over the petty prudences of life, and
perpetually obtrude their parsimoni
ousness upon public notice never
amounts to anytime of account. Man
wants all he cat? use, assimilate, or
ganize, reproduce. The things that
strengthen and! beautify his essential
manhood, that enrich his sentiments
and refine his sensibilities, that enno
ble intellect and enlarge the scope of
his being and the horizon of his possi
bilities, belong to him of right, as the
cron and purple belong to royalty.
Every man ought to aspire and
labor to live generously, and have a
comfortable home, and surround him
self and his family with everything
that t2nds to increase his health and
happin 3s and create an atmosphere of
intelligence and refinement. Beauty,
elegance, art, society and music are
our birthrights. It is not a waste to
spend what one has for things that
foster a noble pride, heighten self-respect,
beautify the body and cultivate
the mind. It is true economy that
spends something for fouoks and pic
tures, for occasional glimpses of nature
and innocent entertainments.
A Satk in the Dead Sea
A Correspondent of the "Wash
ington Star, who has had a bath in
the Dead Sea, describes his experi
ence as follews:
The water, which is quite clear,
and nearly the color of the Niagara
river below the falls, seemed to
me a little more bitter and salt
than that of Salt Lake, although
brijrhtor and more attractive to the
eye when seen close at hand. Its
supporting power struck me as a
little greater, also, than that of Salt
Lake, as the body floated more
asily and the difficulty of swim
ming was greater on account of the
inability to keep one's feet under
water. So large a quantity of salt
is held in solulion that the water
has what is called, I believe, a
"ropy" appearance, much like that
of a plate of well-made tapioca
soup. J olserved, however, that
when we came out of the water
there was not so large a deposit of
salt crtals on the body as after a
bath in Salt Lake, and the feeling
of the skin, instead of being dry
and prickly, as I expected, was
rather oily and sticky . Our din
ner that night was seasoned with salt
made from Dead Sea water by solar
evaporation. It was a little light
er in color than the best article of
brown suo-ar. Its crvstals wrere
large and hard, and though foreign
Substances were evidently present,
in considerable quantity, it was
not unpleasant to the taste. 1 was
told that two quarts of water
will produce one quart of salt, but
this is probably an exaggeration.
To complete the statistics of this
remarkable body of water, I may
add that what many of my readers
many already know, that there is
no living thing of any kind in it;
that even the drift-wood brought
t'o.vn by the floods in the Jordan
is speedily cast upon its shores;
that its length is about 45 and its
greatest width about 10 miles;
that it is over 1300 feet deep at the
deepest place, and that the im
mense quantity of fresh water
poured into it daily is undoubtedly
ta'cen up br evaporation, as its
great depth below the basin of the
Mediterancan must preclude the
idea of a subterranean outlet.
Early Risins a Bad Habit.
Xac York Tribune.
A German physician has dem
onstrated that early rising is a veny
bad habit. He has fcik-en the
trouble to collect information as to
the habits in this respect of several
persons who have lived to-on ad
vanced age, and he finds that in
the majority of the cases thfc long
livers have indulged in late hours.
At least eight out of ten persons
who attained the age of eighty
years and upward were in the
habit of not retiring until the earl v
hours in the morning,- and remain
ing in bed until the day was far
advanced. On the other hand, he
has failed to discover, after care
ful observation of the health of
several early risers, that it was in
any degree better than that of a
similar number of late risers. lie
thinks that so faT from any decided
benefit being gained by getting up
early in the morning, it rather
tends to exhaust physical power
and to shorten life.
I think 'twas in Stptemoer, if I
rightly now remember, that I heard a
knocking at my door; yes. I know it,
'twas in September, for quite well I
noA' remember he had beefl- there
about fiity times before ; had been
knocking at my door. But I opened
not, nor wondered, as upon the door
he thundered, for he yelled, "Say
now will 3Tou settle this 'ere bill I
bring yu," as he bat3eted on the
door, and I answered, cahiJy answered
