need apply! Domestic and Foreign Missions carefully excluded! They should be furnished with no doorbells; or else these bells should be adjusted, like those you see at Safety Deposit Vaults, to summon the whole police force at a touch, for the protection of the treasures within. What deposit vaults, though they held millions, are so precious as the walls that are to guard our saints in their vacations? Within these abodes a variety of spiritual nervines and anodynes might be applied. Goethe recommends to people in health that they should every day read a good poem, hear a good piece of music, and if it be possible-mark the considerateness of that suggestion-speak a few sensible words. In the Rest Cure for Saints the first two prescriptions may be applicable, but the last should be very guardedly administered. Some tolerably somnolent nonsense — for instance, extracts from the last English tourist's book about America-would be far better. To be sure, different cases would req

y Diderot in French, and by Godwin in English, impairing the feeling of filial reverence after the son grows to maturity, would have been abhorrent to the feelings of an ancient Greek. Those emotions took form in their reverence for the Graiae --nymphs who were born gray-headed — as did those of the Romans in the honor paid to the Sibyls, some of whom at least were old. Among our American Indians, Mr. Lucien Carr finds that supremacy accorded to women in age which is denied them in youth. Goethe, exhausting all mythology and allegory in the second part of Faust, gives mysterious reverence to the Mothers, makes the Fates the conservators of social order; while he, with keen satire, modernizes the Furies into beautiful and treacherous girls, each of them young and fair, a wheedling kitten.

stmas this melancholy inquiry certainly seemed a very natural reflection. That day of delight-the early waking, the matutinal stocking, the decorated house, the gathering of kindred, the successive presents, the universal petting-why could not these remain and become human nature's daily food? A child's desire of felicity is and ought to be boundless. It is only time that teaches us the limitations of happiness, and we often accept these restrictions a great deal too soon. Care is taken, Goethe says, that the trees shall not grow up into the sky; but the stronger the impulse the greater the growth. To let the new life in, we know Desire must ope the portal; Perhaps the longing to be so Helps make the soul immortal. I know, at any rate, that the little girl's longing set me wishing that her life could be made, so far as possible, a continuous Christmas. Do not, gentle reader, come in at once with discreeter severity, and point out that the very essence of a holiday lies in i
