FRIDAY, DECEMBER 17, 1880.
PIIYBIJLOQY AND HTOIENU
During tlio Kwion of tlie Legisla
ture of 1885 a bill was Ititrotiticotl by
Solicitor Hnrlriti of Clu-ster County re
quiring Physiology and Hygiene to be
taught in all public schools of this
state. The bill iased tho senato with
out a dissenting vote, nfter which it
wis hp til to tho nouo for concurrence
and passed that body with but little
ooition. It received the Governor's
approval and is how one of the statutes
of the state. Similar laws have been
passed in nearly all tho leading States
ot ino union, so mat we are not ho
hind in introducing this important
study in our public echools. It has
met but very Jittle opposition, only
thoso who do uot properly understand
the law ana ihu sutnect to bo taught,
oppose it. Ilygicuo may bo defined to
ho "a system, ot princloies or rules de
signed lorthe piomotion of health," and
Physiology, "the sc'ienco of life.'' The
study ot tho structure of tho human
system, and tho lawn of tho different
organs aio subjects of interest to all,
Every child should learn the laws of
health, and tho conditions upon which
health and disease depend, as UiU
knuwledgo may bo practiced in after
lite. Uisrases do not como by chance.
They aro penalties for violating physi
oainiwB. now can we expect our
children to obey theeo laws unlets they
slimy and understand them, l'reetous
lives aro frequently lost through ignor
ance. Thous inds squander in early
yiars the strength a Inch should have
been kept tor tho work of real life,
Habits are often formed in youth which
entail weakness and poverty upon man
hood and are, a cause of life-long regtet
The preservaiion ot health is easier
than tho onro of disease. Childhood
cannot afford to wait for tho lesson of
experience which is learned only when
tho penalty ot violated law has been
already incurred, and health lost. The
body is the instrument which the mind
uses and every child should learn no
to take oare of it. Tho gratidest gifts
of miud or fortune are comparatively
valueless unless uktj bo a healthy body
to use and enjoy thorn. A proper
knowledge of Physiology and Hygieno
would greatly lessen the number ot dis
eases and a h.ri;o proportion of the ills
which now aluict and rob us of so
much time and pleasure might bo easily
a avoided. Qjir bodies are constituted in
harmony with certain laws, and every
person should learn these in order to
regulate his actions and tho perform
anoo ot ins duties, so mat, health may
be unimpaired and the power ot en
joyment, activity, and usefulness con
tinue while life lasts. Tho great aim
of this study is the preservation of
health. A celebrated philosopher once
said that "it is somewhat uuaccount
able and not a little inconsistent that
while wo direct the young to look
abroad over the surface of the earth
and survey its mountains, rivers, seas
and continents, aud guide their views
to the regions of tho firmament, whore
thev may contemplate the moons ot
Jupiter, the rings of Saturn and thou
sands of luminaries placed at immeas
uraDie distances, that wo should never
teach them to look into themselves, to
consider their own corporeal structure
the numerous parts ot which they aro
cumpos d, the admirable functions they
penurm, me wisuora anu goodness dis
played in their mechanism and tho les
sons of practical instruction which maj
oe uerivea irom such contemplation.'
i no superintendent ot Jublio In
struction in his annual report of 1685
makes the followinir statement:
'In regard to the recent law requir
ing physiology and hygiene to be
taught as part of the ntcessary curri
culuin of our publio schooN, a word
hero may not bo out of place. Of
course where children cannot read in
telligently or with easo, it would be
monstrous perversion of ordinary com
mon sense to expect thern to ue a text
book J. heir interaction must bo oral
and such instruction must and ought
to be given, properly adapted to the
age ami uiur.umeui ot tho pupil. 1
niguer grouts, text oooks in lull con
jormiiy wun tne meaning and pur
pose or we law should be used : nir
thus all pupils, whether of low or hiel:
grades, will receive instruction. It is
needless to anticipalo difficulties. Chil
dren, it is true, may spend a long ser
ies ot ears in the publio schools, an
tho question may in time arise whether
those who have already studied the
subject with sufficient fullness must bo
made to go over and over again th
same study, in the same form from
year to year. The law requires no
sucn loonsii procedure, it requires
mat cacn aua every child in our pub
lic schools Bliull have the benefit of in
etruction in the branches referred to,
and this under proper regulations
according to the aco and crado
of tho pup'l and in a manner
which shall exclude all useless repeti
tion of the same elements of instruction.
Only enmity to tho law can warrant
such an interpretation as will defeat
its own purpose, which plainly is that
all our I'h'ildren shall gain as much
knowledgo of physiology and hygiene
as our oo ni mo n schools, with their lim
ited sphero, can give, accompanied at
oaoh step with a proper practical ap
plication of this knowledge in reference
especially to the effects of alcohol ami
narcotics on the human system. Such
knowledgo is in itself of vast account
and such special application of it in
way of warning, properly belongs to
the moral discipline which should
characterize all teaching, whether re
quired by definito statute or not. The
law-abiding habits ol teachers and di
rectors give abundant assurance that
this law will bo fully oboyed. Of this
wo have no doubt,"

Manayunk Chronicle, Pa., says of Col.
Conwell : A perfect master of the orator's
art j brilliant, incisive, overpowering, elo
quent words are so linked with vivid ges
ture, that he seems tho born throll of tho
reigning, emotions and wit never so keen,
humor never so refined, yet broad and gen-
ial, pathos never o genulno and deep,
make everything ho touches part of a grand
procession wherein axiomatic Ihrough and
pertinent anecdote not only point to Hea
ven, but leud the way. Almost every sen
tence is an Inspiration, and in closing his
Jules Vernc-ish grasp on the trend of
scientific achievement, seems to scud an
electric illumination to the very vergo of
the mlllcnium. .
As an author and orator, Col. Conwel
won high honors. iV, 1'. 'Tribune. 2t
Dr. Buckley's lecture on "Cranks, or
how not to go mad" is a good lecture, but
not a humorous one. The latter part of its
title gives a clue to Its general drift. It is
rially an exhaustive discussion ot the sub
ject of insanlty,treatlng upon all its phases
and freaks; how to handle and help Its
victims s how to ward it off when there
seems to bo an hereditary tendency to It
and how to live so as not so mad. The
lecture is an able and very interesting dis
cussion ot tho whole subject, occasionally
witty, but not humorous, and tho person
who goes with tho expectation of laughing
or who cannot rise above tint plane In the
scale of entertainment will bo greatly dls
appointed. The Dr. speaks rattier pleas
antly, with force and precision, but with
no effect at oratorical display.

Being desirous of placing our work moro fully before the pub
lic, and after much thought and deliberation, we have resolved to
make a certain number of our Elegant Life-size Crayon Portraits,
including an elegant gold frame, for the exceedingly low price of
$15,00. "We intend to have at
Portraits in every city and village in this country, and to'intro
duce them we will make one of our $30,00 Crayon Portraits for
the person who will bring or send this advertisement and furnish
us a good photograph or other small picture, from which they de
sire a rortrait to be made. .Nearly every ianuly possesses tho
small picture of some friend, deceased or living, whoso memory
they cherish, and a good portrait of whom they would value as a
priceless gem. The uncertainty of life admonishes all that do
not, possess u Portrait of their darling boy or girl, or of Father or
Mother, Wife or Husband, who may be nearing the end of life's
journey, that tins matter should
The Gportunity is now Offered You
to get absolutely without charge, except moderate cost of frame
an elegant Crayon Portrait that will never change or fade. Tho
chance of obtaining one of the number is now ollered to you. Re
member we guarantee satisfaction in all cases, or in other words ;
the Crayon Portrait will be a perfect likeness, enlarged from tho
small picture furnished to us ; therefore, try and secure as good
and clear a picture as possible, for much depends upon its cor
rectness. If at present you have no suitable picture to copy from
if you will call upon us wo can aid you very much in getting ono
that will certainly make a good Crayon Portrait, as the lights and
shades of the small picture, if sharp aud clear, will so appear in
the Crayon Portrait.
After a certain number have been placed before the public in
the above gratuitous manner wo will then charge $30,00 for every
Crayon Portrait made by us, framed. You are invited to call and
examine our Portraits before giving an order to us, and in case
you reside so far away that you can not conveniently call, perhaps
you havo some friend that would examine our Portraits and
Frames and report to you.
Our sole object in making these Crayons on the above terms be
ing to introduce them into families where they can bo seen by
friends that may want a Portrait made after the time that our gra
tuitous oiler has expired. We earnestly value and covet your pat
ronage, and wo mean no intrusion in submitting our special offer
for your consideration, believing that your good judgment will
prompt you to inspect our work and give us at least ONE order.
Be careful and preserve this advertisement as it possesses a val
ue in Fine Crayon Work of at least $30,00. This advertisement
must, in every case, accompany tho order, either in person or by
letter, as tho case may be.
ftSWhero parties have to order by mail wo will send tho
1 ortruit framed, C. O. D. by express, subject to examination, and
it not satisfactory in every particular, it costs you nothing. There
fore, you take no risk in getting a cheap, inferior Portrait. Par
ticular attention givnn to orders received by mail.
