Man, says he, is the only ar ' nial that can laugh. , To laugh is one of tl firerogatires of-bis nature. After, a heart augh, he feels better; be is better; tnore 1.-ciable, more, friendly, more humane, mori courteous, more benevolent; has a better appetite, requires less physic, sleeps more sweetly, and bas better dreams. 'Laugh and be fat,' says the old adage. I never-knew a fat ma:, that was a melancholy one, nor a dyspeptic thai was not. " Melancholy is not only a consequence, it is often a -cause of disease. laugh gives exercise, to a part of our systec-that requires it as much as any other, and yet that can get itinno other way. When w wish to take an airing, we resort "to a csrria-;; but if we wish to give our spirits ah Sirinc", 1 hearty laugh is the only vehicle.

Unless a man s times utter nonsense, well seasoned with! ter to make it palatable, he forces vt;c : the severe duty of always being eiis .uie . . turn.
