To laugh is good for us; and laughter is the triumph of wit. The human face has one class of wrinkles on whibh it is a pleasure to look; and they are produced by the cordial expression of mirth. Ifyou would _fitfow whether a person's disposition is gentle or mnrbse, look at. the corners of his mouth. See whether happy curves and furrows, are or , are not there. Honest laughter w_,ill give a charm to the homeliest physiognomy.
