OUR OWN OLIO. The Sexes. The equality in the numbers ol the sexes indicates two things: first: that it could not happen by chance, and second, that the marriage ot one man to one woman was intended.

But a* each fingei has its individual functions, there is nothing but what can be explained in the simplest and most common-sense manner, without f<* sorting to magic, witchcraft, 01 signs and wonders. The third finger is now usually the ring-finger —that is, the wedding-ring finger, The ancients supposed that a nerve in that finger was intimately connected with tire heart, and it was therefore set apart for this especial honor. On the contrary, it has less independent arteries than either of the others. It cannot be bent or straightened very much without some motion or actions ot lire fingers on either side; and as it in compensation for this deficiency is chosen as the ring-finger. QUIZ OWN OLIO.

Stuart’s Draft Draughts. Jan. 23. Editors Banner: On last Sabbath, the 21st, Dr. Strickler preached his last sermon at Tinkling Spring church before taking charge of his new field of labor, Atlanta, Ga. His text was the I.oth verse of the Ist chapter ol 2d Peter—“ Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure, for if ye do these things ye shall never fall.” Dr. Strickler had announced on the previous Sabbath that he could not trust his feelings to deliver a farewell sermon. A large crowd was in attendance, quite a number from sister churches being present. The minister urged with great solemnity the importance of Christians living consistent lives. He drew a picture of the way and manner of many who profess to be Christians which was so striking all must have been able to see the absurdity of a Christian profession apart from Christian principles. Dr. Strickler has had charge of Tinkling Spring church 12 years. It has lost an able and devoted ...

18 IT IN THE ATMOSPHERE? A Theory Which is Commencing to Have Believers, and in Which t here may be More than Would Appear. If it be true, as is argued by some, that atmospheric influences impel the human family to excesses which in ordinary times are never dreamed of, then indeed this winter must go on record as a most striking exemplification of the theory. The prevailing mania appears as a form of delirium, which believes in nc silver lining to even the least portentous of dark clouds, but would have it that each speck in the horizon of existence is an unerring indication of very tornadoes of destruction and death. The perfect accord of the weather prophets in their voluminous predictions oi storms and disasters has undeniably produced an effect upon the people the nervous strain of which has by no means been lessened by the series of calamities with the terrible details of which the public press has teemed these many weeks. A very large class of men as well as of women grow timi...

FIRESIDE FUN. Appropriate name lor a bulldog Agrippa. Likely to bo a myrrh maid—the apothecary’s daughter. In these days even the spice ol‘! life is largely adulterated. In the morning a man gets up, but in the evening he gets supper. Pillows, though not belonging to the human species, come under the head of rational beings. “Don't put in no muskeeter nettin’ for me,” said Aunt Hannah. < “I don't want to breath no strained air.” The Sultan of Morocco has only i 304 wives. This gives him one day in the year to sit down and reflect \\dthout having a wet mop strike his toes. In some parts of Chicago and j Troy there is a saloon for every sixth house. It is only great cities that can thus place delirum tremens within the reach of all. The Steubenville “Herald” has an article headed “Shall We Fly?” We have not had time to read the 1 article, but we would advise the * editor of the “Herald” to stay and brazen it out, whatever it is. < Doctor—“ Well, Pat, have you tak...

It can only be opened by pressing on the ends. It must be larger directly in the centre than anywhere else. About the Telephone. A lew weeks ago a physician was called by telephone about one o’clock at night. The call came from Briggsville, Mass., about two miles away. A child there was suffering with the croup and in a critical condition. The night was dark and stormy, and the doctor found nothing pleasant in the contemplation of the trip which he was asked to make. When preparing to go out in the darkness and rain his mind conceived a bright thought which was immediately followed by acts. He called the hotel in which the little sufferer lay, and requested the parents to bring it to the telephone transmitter. This w r as done. The child coughe...

The Propensity in Man to Domineer. To domineer is one of man’s strongest controlling propensities, which executed cause strife or contention. Strife or contention among men is detrimental to their prosperity, peace and happiness, and all acts which are detrimental to prosperity, peace and happiness deprive man of the liberty of exercising his rights. Among civilized and enlighted nations a Republican or Democratic government signifies that form of polity which secures to man the right of exercising and enjoying his inalienable rights. Rights, like truths, exist, whether they be recognized or not. Man deprived of all liberties is like man deprived of blood, an indispensable in the support of life. Rights enjoyed are to all civil societies what air, water and lood are to man or beast—the means of preserving the essential parts of both. The object and end of all those rules called laws is to prohibit (by force if necessary) man from interfering with man, who has a right to acquire and ...
