Tli<> Effects of Over Activity. Dr. Sawyer remarks that full exercise of the braiu is favorable to health and longevity, aud that prolonged brain work is not neces? sarily injurious when Unattended by hurry, anxiety or excitement. The young and strong have an overplus of nerve force, but when the ueive capital is small the effect of?ovcr activity is an immediate danger. The carrs ing of business cares and worriments over night is a drain on the nervous system.? Occupations requiring keen, con tinned alertness, like that of loco? motive engineers and bank tellers, arc extremely wearing. The nerve strain on speculators-is obvious.? The excitement of polities wrecks some men. A very monotonous occupation exercises but one part of the brain and that excessively. '?Thus the bookkeeper, dealing with figures and nothing but fig? ures year after year.becomes tired, listless.inelastic and finally incapa ble of work. A vacation trip to the seaside or the mountains ben? efits him immense...

The claim made by the Repub? cans soon after tho election of a majority from twenty to twenty five in the House of Representa tives hi the fifty first Congress has been assuming smaller proportions daily since, until it has dwindled down to a majority ranging from three to seven. Coutrary to their predictions also, the Democrats have not attempted to steal the House, by withholding certificates of .Republicans elected in the Southern States. Their majority on the contrary is due to the elec? tion of Representatives iu the South from districts heretofore Democratic. Beaten as they have been in some'districts by apathy, indifference and by Democrats so called, who "tor personal reasons? have voted for Republicans, they have made no effort to pervert the people's will. The Republicans, tbercfoie, are in control of every branch of our Governme...
