How to Kill the Bhics. Generally speaking, if you are troubled wirb '-the blues," and can not tell why, yon may he certain that it springs from physical weak? ness. Instead of lying on the sofa anil courting painful ideas if you are a desperate lover, a hypochon driacora valetudinarian.you should be up and stirring yourself. The blood of a inelaneholy man is thick wild slow, creeping sluggishly through his veins, like muddy water in a canal: the blood of your merry chirping philosopher is clear and quick, brisk as a now-broached champagne. Try, therefore, to set your blood in mot ion. Try, rather, what a smart walk will do for you: set your pegs in motion on rough, r^eky ground, or hurry them up a steep, cragged hill: build a stone wall: swing an ax over a pile of hickory 01 rock-maple: turn a grindstone: dig ditohes;prac tire "ground and lofty tumbling;-' pour water into seives with the Dan aides, or. with Sisyphus, "up the high hill heave a huge round stone;" in short, do anything...
