Tho special phrases current for the months In art and musical circlps are all given us ready for use, like our canned foods. "Cut the can carefully nt the thin end ami servo hot or cold." But In this "prepared" sameness In conservation we rebel occasionally, and long for a sample of Individuality, something a man has thought out for himself—to foel that we are plucking a peach from the tree where it has been growing, not from'a can whore It has been packed. Hut for Inn most part, this Individuality, lu Its fresh, delightful form, is missing. H would be real and living If the costly educational menu of our schools were cut down to a few studies with "trained 11,inking" constantly on the table us a relish. But wo do not get much of this Individual thinking: It Is done, like all other work—by "syndicates." Man may fool it is right for him to do a certain thing; from his careful study of it in all its relations, lu his honest judgment it siwms to him to be right. Hut society will not understand It. He then perhaps stands In terror before some presbytery, social or ecclesiastical; so he silences his conscience, and bows before Public Opinion. His conscience; was his own—his duty to his individuality should make him obey the dictates of his conscience. Public Opinion is but a conscience owned by a syndicate. If It were right, what docs it matter what "people say?" In the Dark Ages man stood lu terror of one lord or muster. This he called "slavery." AVo throw our individuality, our right to think for ourselves, to the winds. We stand in terror of a million masters, we fall prostrate before society, before Public Opinion; but this we call "liberty." There is not in this pica for Individuality in our life the slightest trace of anarchy In thought. It is most perfect recognition of law and the duty of obedience to it, for it represents perfect harmony A San Francisco girl now takes a four-mile swim" In the Pacific every morning.

King .lames' translators did not exhaust nil the good nnd graphic words in tho Knglish dietiomiry. I suppose if we should take the Idea of heaven and translate it into modern phrnso wo would find (hat Us atmosphere is n combination of early June and of the Indian summer in October—a place combining Hie advantages of city and country, thp streets standing for the one and the twelve manor of. fruits for tho other; ii place of mil- rlcal entertainments—harpers, pipers, (rnmpelors, doxologics; a place of wonderful architecture—behold the temples; n place where there may lie tliehighrr forms ot animal lite—tho beasts which were on earth beaten, lash whipped and galled nml iinblankoted and worked to 'death, turned out among the while IIOI-BOS which the book of Itcvelntion describes ns being in heaven; n place of stupendous literature the books open; a plnci; of aristocratic and democratic ntlractiveness — the kings standing for tiie one, all nations for the other; nil botanical, pomologicnl, ornithological, nrboix'scent, worshipful beauty and grandeur, But my idea now is to speak chiefly o the improved heaven. People sometimes think of heaven as though it were an o!< city, finished centuries ago, when 1 Junto tell yon thnt no city on earth ilnrinj, Ihe last fifty yeiys has had such change as henven.

His hearers were taught how to prepare and preserve food according to the methods observed by bacteriologists In their work. The art of preservation, which was especially dwelt upon, was shown to consist simply In absolute cleanliness. The vessels wens cleansed In boiling water before food was put Into Ihcrn, and the greatest <mro was then exercised to prevent the entrance of germs from any source. The covers of tho vessels had overhanging lids, Instead of those with Insldn llunges, usually employed; and where their use was practicable, the lids were made of circular disks of cotton clamped at the rim between two motal rlngx. <;no of which formed tho outside rim of the cover.

ADOPTION OF THE CAT. When It Was Introduced to Hnmnii Society a Mystery. It is Impossible to trace the origin of the domestic cat with certainty to any existing species or variety of wildcat. Indeed, the time at which the cat was lirst domesticated and introduced to human society is simply a matter of conjecture. Prof. Shaler expresses the opinion that the domestication of the oat must have been much later than that of tho dog, while naturalists give reasons for believing to the contrary. Some people agree with Prof. Shaler, and for this reason: That dogs -wove probably first domesticated lu order to assist In hunting, nnd, therefore, probably in what.is called the hunting age of human society, whereas the cat has nowhere boon generally used as a hunting animal. The dog is.essentially gregarious; he loves to hunt. In packs, and whim Introduced to a human family he -•egards the family as his pack and iuini3 accordingly, so (hut he is easily made serviceable by the human hunter. Tho cat, on the t'ontrary, Is unsocial; it lives alone and hunts alone, so Hint it could not be expected to be easily -trained to hunt, either with men or for men. In fact, the only member of the eat family that Is known to have been trained to hunt is the cheetah, though nu ancient Egyptian painting, which may b« seen lu the British museum, represents a eat which Is apparently assisting a hunter to catch birds. There Is another reason for th'nklug that tho cat must have been adopted by man after tho hunting age, namely, tho cut's wonderful nUacbmeut to localities. Animals like the wolf, with which the dog Is most closely allied, follow with a reed, we are told, and he measured heaven on one side, and then he went forth and measured heaven on the other side, nnd then St. John tried to take the census of that cily, and he became so be-' wildered that he save it up. Improvements in Hcuvcn. That brings me to the first thought of my theme—that heaven is vastly improved in numbers. Noting little under this head uboiit the multitude ot adults who have Kone into glory during the last 100 or uOO or 1,000 years, I remember there are ],1100,000,000 of people in the world, and Hint the vnst majority of people die in in- faney. How ninny children must have gone' into heaven during the last 500 or 1,000 yenrs. If New York should gather in one'generation 1.000,000 population, if London should gather in one generation 1,000,000 population, what a vast increase. But what u mere nothing as compared with the 000,00(1,000, the 2.000,000,000, the "multitude that no man ehii number," that have gone into that cily. Of course all this takes for granted that every child (lint dies goes as straight into henven ns ever the light speed from n star, and Hint is one reason why heaven will always bo fresh nnd beautiful—the great multitude! of children in it. Put 500,000,000 children inn country, it will be a blessed and lively country. But add to this, if yon will, the great multitude of adults who have gone .into glory, nml how the census of heaven must run'up. doncd. when the'''Jil»t nation is redeemed? What a time thorO'Vfill bo in heaven! Yon and I will be in th.cf.procession, you and I will thrum n slriujgvin thai groat orchestra.

If there is n difference between heaven now nnd heaven as it was, oh, what n difference between heaven as it shall lie and lieaven as it is now? Not ^splendor stuck fast, but oiling on and rolling on, and rolling up and roiling up, forever, forever. Now, I say tliqSii' things about flic changes in heaven',.- about the new improvements in heaven, Cor throe stout reasons. First, because I find that some of you are impatient to bo gone. You are tired of this world, nml you want to get into that good land about which yon have been thinking, praying nnd talking so many years. Now. bo patient.

Another reason why I sponk in regard lo the changes in henven and the new improvements in heaven is because I think it will h" n consolation lo busy and enterprising good people.

Of course, much of this Is conjecture. Whether the cat or the dog was Ilrst adopted by man cannot now be certainly known, but the cat was well known us a domestic animal at an early period of human history.- Boston Journal. Vaccination. In tho Herman army only six or seven cases of small-pox occur annually, and tue.ro can be little doubt that'thls almost complete Immunity from a disease which formerly decimated continental armies Is due to the thorough way In which vaccination Is carried out. All recruits are rovucclnated, and tho regulations prescribe that there shall bo at least ten ptineturos in each arm. A further couiirmatlon of this view may be found In tho fact that, the ouo soldier who died from small-pox lu tho period from 1)J74 to 1887 was a man who wn» twice unsuccessfully re- vacclimtwd when ri-eniiled. There din bo no doubt that oilier diseases are HomellmeH communicated through tho modluni of the vaccine lymph, but the unprejudiced observer will probably arrive at this conclusion that these form but a very Inslgnlllonnt fraction of the number of small-pox cases which would eniiui! from the abolition of vaccination.
