WHY WE LAUGH. JLougbter lias been described an c «eriis of slight anil jerking involun tary oxpiralives, generally attendee tli noiso which usually resemble: the vowel-sounds a, o, or e. It would bo difficult, however, tc explain why laughter is limited to the buuicn race. True, the animals have not (lie peculiar muscles which laugh ter calls into action, but even if they had it is doubtful it they could laugh, tor the practice implies a mental per ception of the ludicrous side of things which they could hardly possess. As an attribute o" mankind laugh ter belongs even to the lowest degree? Df human intelligence. An infant will laugh, and so will the most ignorant SUYllgC. It is noteworthy that while Immod erate laughter is said to denote men tal imbecility, total abstinence fron Lhc practico Is by no means a mark ol strong mentality. The saturnine mirth loss mind is not uncommon iu lunatics.
