DO SOME DEEP THINKING.
Help Your Mind by doing Into a
"Brown 8tuV One In Awhile.
"If the 'brown study' were more
often cultivated many people would be
happier and more clear thinking would
be done," says the London Lancet "It
Is in such a state that truths dawn sud
denly and clearly npon the unclouded
Intelligence. It Is In such a state that
mighty actions are conceived, poems
born at a stroke and mankind enlight
ened through the enlightenment of the
"In this state of mind there Is such a
concentration of mental energy that
the body Is Ignored. The mind, on the
other band, Is so working upon the
subject which concerns It, is so Intent
npon Its own affairs, that the external
world Is obliterated, and any bodily
discomfort that may have been pre-existing
Is now negligible and unnoticed."
The Lancet says the relationship be
tween mental activity and the bodily
state Is not realized with sufficient fre
quency or with sufficient thoroughness
by the European of today. "The aver
age man is too engrossed with bis bod
ily pabulum, and In caring for the
needs of the body be neglects the needs
tt the mind."
The wisdom teeth are the two last
molar teeth to grow. Tbey come one
on each side of the Jaw and arrive
somewhere between the ages of twenty
and twenty-five years. The name Is
given them because it Is supposd that
when a person has developed physical
ly and mentally to the point where be
has secured these last two teeth be has
also arrived at the age of discretion.
It does not necessarily mean that one
who has cut bis wisdom teeth Is wise,
but that, having lived long enough to
grow these, which complete the full
set of teeth, the person has passed suf
ficient actual years that If he has done
what he should to At himself for life
he should have come by that time t
the age of discretion or wisdom. As a
matter of fact, these teeth grow at
about the same time in people whether
tbey are wise or not
During the latter half of the eleventh
century pilgrims to Jerusalem began to
be persecuted by the Turks or Sara
cens then in possession ot the Holy
Land. Nine noble knights formed a
brotherhood with the objeot of protect
ing the pilgrims. The cause spread
rapidly over Europe, and the knights
grew to legions In number. Vows of
chastity, obedience and poverty wen
taken, and the order, from merely pro
tecting the pilgrims, took upon itself
the task of recovering the Holy Land
from the grip of the Infidels. About
1120 they were given a plate In the ln
closure of the temple on Mount Mo
riah, and heute the name Templars, or
Knights of the Temple of Solomon.
