might be made of the brain, for
apart from natural endowment and
long, severe training, physical con­
ditions, now, perhaps, in our power,
will wonderfully affect, sooner or
later,, both intellectual vigor and
achievement in the world. When
the lamented Garfield had become
weakened in body, how quickly the
mind lost its energy and even be­
came clouded '
It is very important, therefore,
that -brain-workers early learn the
influences which they may bring to
bear with happy results upon their
mental energies—influences which
are as certain in effects as is a re­
duction of the temperature to the
freezingof water. Such knowledge
faithfully used, would remove much
suffering from the literary class and
' “ " prevent a diminution in power of
useful lives, which is, alad ! so often
For good mental work the body
must be in vigorous health. A
strong digestion is the citadel of
physical strength. It “ holds the
fort” against many enemies. A
Georgian recently remarked, con­
cerning Gov. Stephens, 7rKe~has
'withered limbs, but a good diges­
tion.” Here is the secret of his ac­
tive career as statesman and writer.
The water turns the mill, and good
blood carries repair to the tired
brain. Hence, all the circumstances
of perfect digestion, as wholesome
food—proper quantity—thorough
mastication, exercise in the fresh
, air, abstinence from the use of in-
toxIFating drink«’ (uuay we not add
of tobacco also,) should receive
careful attention,
Many with good health leave an
active pursuit, like farming, and be­
gin a course of study with no ap­
prehension of the laws by which
lrealtb had previously (although un­
Hence these laws are now sadly
violated, and soon cherished plans
of life may be thwarted. An able
divine remarked in our hearing,
that, when he began his studies, a
physician, a friend of the family,
gave him good advice. He follow­
ed it, and always maintained excel-
l nt health. Blessed are the young
possessed of such friends or of faith­
ful teachers who will erect the dan­
ger signal in the right place.
Thought is healthful, and vigor of
body and activity of mind nay run
parallel through a joyous, useful
life. He whose expenditures are
more than his income, will reach
bankruptcy sooner or later; but he

properly may avoid disaster. So
let repair succeed thtt \vaste of
brain-energy, and the later organ
will maintain its vigor,-and there
will be ever a good quantity of re­
served nerve-strength, so conven­
ient to possess in this bilsy life of
ours. Happy is he who hears every
call of duty joyfully, and whose
pleasure is in mental activity, and
who, yet, is so fortunately balanced
that the quiet voice of nature cal­
ling for rest or for recreation is
quickly heard and instinctively re-
sponded to. Such a soul must be free
from ¿he clangor of ambition and of
other unholy passions. Grace—as
well as knowledge—is needed to
save us from perils and make life
rich in joy and in usefulness to
men.— Ex.~y

Ctune up higher said the Master
I have need of thee
From that world of parting and disaster
-Faithful spirit thou art free.
Died, Feb. 10, 1883, at his house in
Linn county ; Mr. Isaac Bievens, aged
81 years and 27 days.
Father tJhmjps was born in MoeguD
county, TenDeH8ee, Ttr~T7WJ,—When a
few years of age, his parents moved to
Kentucky. He was married Sept. 1833,
to Miss Eliza Maupin.' He went from
-Kentucky, tn Missouri iu 1840 and in
1850 came to Oregon and settled on the
claim iu Linu county, where he died.
Though a believer in the truths of the
Bible, he never made a public profession
of bis faith till about four years since,
when under the simple, yet powerful
preaching of Bro. J. B. McCorkle, he
submitted to take Christ’s yoke upou
him and by the assistance of Bro. .J, E
Roberts was “ buried by baptism into
death," and haB since indeed woiked a
new life of faith iu the Son of God.
He had the respect and confidence of
those wbe knew him. His family (four
sous) had years since gone from beneath
the parental roof, and are honorable and
respected citizens iu the communities in
which they reside. His aged consort is
left to mourn bin loss. May the conso­
lation of him who said “ I will go to
prepare a place for yon” support her in
these declpiing years and comfort tho.e
bereaVed ones-jn the boas of a husband,
father and friend.
