But it is otherwise with regard to justice: the man who in that refines the least, and adheres with the most obstinate steadfastness to the general rules themselves, is the most commendable, and the most to be depended upon. She has again and again managed to outwit him, as we have found him dolefully admitting, and has had her full laugh at his cumbrous attempts to manage her. Not well understanding the process of distinguishing the same individual into different metaphysical sections to compare, collate, and set one against the other, (so awkwardly do we at first apply ourselves to the analytic art!) to get rid of the difficulty, the mind produces a _double_ individual part real and part imaginary, or repeats the same idea twice over, in which case it is a contradiction to suppose that the one does not correspond exactly with the other in all it’s parts. Children and savages are almost entirely emotional, in the sense that they think emotionally and have no power of intellectual detachment. One of the greatest distinctions of several of his elder contemporaries—we name Middleton, Webster, Tourneur—is a gift for combining, for fusing into a single phrase, two or more diverse impressions. The gloom of night is deepening fast, And on the wild and fitful blast The stormy clouds like shadows fly; And darkened by their rapid flight, The pale and placid orb of night Is shrouded from the seaman’s eye. I believe that we librarians use the experimental method too infrequently. In every part of the universe we observe means adjusted with the nicest artifice to the ends which they are intended to produce; and in the mechanism of a plant, or animal body, admire how every thing is contrived for advancing the two great purposes of nature, the support of the individual, and the propagation of the species. H——’s conversation from a very agreeable paper he has lately published, called the _Indicator_, than which nothing can be more happily conceived or executed. Nothing now embarrassed the system of Copernicus, but the difficulty which the imagination felt in conceiving bodies so immensely ponderous as the Earth and the other Planets revolving round the Sun with such incredible rapidity. They are become to my ears a mockery and a dream. Others realize the first task must be to cleanse the way of the inadequacies and perversions which masquerade as the whole Truth, as the “word of God.” The Ultimate Good cannot be translated into the petty codes of human convenience, neither can it be deduced from the wanton phantoms of man’s wild fancy, called religion, which, by attempting to expound everything, explains nothing. I can conscientiously assert that my own experience proves the contrary, and that I have not found in a tithe of the cases which I have had to manage, any very great difficulty in persuading them willingly to accompany me, more especially if I had sufficient time given me to ingratiate myself into their good opinion and confidence, which I do, by fully explaining the object of their removal, the treatment I intend to adopt, and the means to be used to make them as happy as possible in the new circumstances in which they are about to be placed. vii. By the best writers, therefore, they are reserved for light and ludicrous occasions; when, in order to humour their subject, they stoop to a more familiar style than usual. There may be those who will say: Let multiple hypothesis testing the student first learn to obey without question; when he has done this it will be time to talk to him about initiative. Grant it. We have been forgetting it since the dawn of civilization, and we inherit our forgetfulness from the twilight of ignorance that preceded it. If any man, therefore, was so absurdly constituted as to approve of cruelty and injustice as the highest virtues, and to disapprove of equity and humanity as the most pitiful vices, such a constitution of mind might indeed be regarded as inconvenient both to the individual and to the society, and likewise as strange, surprising, and unnatural in itself; but it could not, without the greatest absurdity, be denominated vicious or morally evil. This gleeful greeting of what is at once new and exhilarating to sense answers in the case of these simple people to what in ourselves is joyous admiration. This class of character have been called ‘God Almighty’s gentlemen.’ There are not a great many of them.—The _late_ G—— D—— was one; for we understand that that gentleman was not able to survive some ill-disposed person’s having asserted of him, that he had mistaken Lord Castlereagh for the author of Waverley! Thus, among the Anglo-Saxons, in the “simple ordeal” the iron weighed one pound, in the “triple ordeal” three pounds.

Solution of nitric acid, about three years ago, {152} appeared to have, for a time, a good effect; the eruption became somewhat less, and the mind less violent: but this might arise from the debilitating effects, rather than the radical removal of the cause of his disease. Some of our circle break out into passion, or give way to some strong propensity; they are told it won’t do, and are removed: they soon promise to behave better, and return. We must at least believe ourselves to be admirable for what they are admirable. By thinking of what has been, we change places with ourselves, and transpose our personal identity at will; so as to fix the slider of our improgressive continuance at whatever point we please. As friendship and love yield the most exalted pleasure, from this root the natives drew a fund of words to express fondness, attachment, hospitality, charity; and from the same worthy source they selected that adjective which they applied to the greatest and most benevolent divinity.[370] II. As has been pointed out, it is a symptom, rather than the thing itself. Let me repeat that both library and museum may contain descriptive and explanatory text and illustrative material. The young aspirant’s family and connections, living on in the less brilliant light, will perforce laugh, though perhaps with something of sympathetic admiration, at the oddity of the sudden elevation; and the rising young man will be singularly fortunate if he does not now and again betray an amusing unfamiliarity with the ways of the company he has joined. There is a library public that they recognize and respect. The fusion of tones leaves much to be desired in the case of many writers who are popularly regarded as skilled humorists. This account of things, therefore, was attacked from all quarters, and by all sorts of weapons, by sober reason as well as by furious declamation. I was one of the best in our school (it was at Clapham, sir, the Rev. Our feelings, in the former case, are dissipated and exhausted by being called into constant and vain activity; in the latter they rust and grow dead for want of use. This is the case which I present to you, and for which I earnestly solicit your consideration. Louis Robinson tells us that the flexing of the foot when tickled transforms an unpleasant sensation into a rather pleasant one. They must needs be very imposing or amusing characters to surround themselves with a circle of friends, who find that they are to be mere cyphers. and of Charles II., ignorant of the _Je ne scais quoi_ and of the _scavoir vivre_! In like manner I beg to point to the library consolidations in New York and Brooklyn as an evidence that such removal of duplication elsewhere would enable us to supply omissions in library service. To disturb his happiness merely because it stands in the way of our own, to take from him what is of real use to him merely because it {76} may be of equal or of more use to us, or to indulge, in this manner, at the expense of other people, the natural preference which every man has for his own happiness above that of other people, is what no impartial spectator can go along with. In this effort it has to envisage things in a way essentially different from that of everyday observation. M. Our assistants take over the telephone requests to furnish the population of Bulgaria, the average temperature of Nebraska in the month of June, plans for bungalows not to cost more than $1750, pictures of the Winter Palace in Petrograd, sixty picture postals of Baltimore for a reflectoscope lecture, a copy of a poem beginning “O beauteous day!” the address of the speaker’s uncle who left Salem, Massachusetts, for the West twenty-six years ago. He must have conceived this word, therefore, as expressive of a particular sort or species of relation distinct from every other, which could not be done without a considerable effort of comparison and generalization. Books that are curiosities on account of their rarity or for other reasons are limited usually to very large libraries. The terms laughable and ludicrous may be employed interchangeably up to a certain point without risk of confusion. Neither were these which animated the celestial spheres, nor those which informed inferior terrestrial animals, regarded as portions of this plastic soul of the world. He is stopped by the idea of a pain which he has not yet felt, and which can only affect him as a general, or representative idea of pain, the object being new, and there being nothing in his past associations in the order in which they are recalled by memory to produce the necessary action. Sterne’s was in this respect the best style that ever was written. I look in the future for the definition of two clearly separated spheres of activity, one filled by the library and the other by the school, and for the closest co-operation between the two that is consistent with confining each to its own work. But—there lies the question that must ‘give us pause’—is the pleasure increased in proportion to our habitual and critical discernment, or does not our familiarity with nature, with science, and with art, breed an indifference for those objects we are most conversant with and most masters of? The order, harmony, and coherence which this philosophy multiple hypothesis testing bestowed upon the Universal System, struck them with awe and veneration. We speak of an objective region of “the laughable,” that is of objects and relations of objects which are fitted and which tend to excite laughter in us all alike. The church history of many a small place is very much to the point. Such things can be had for the asking, and there is usually no one place in a town where they are all assembled.
