First of all, there is to be education according to the highest modern standard; and along with education, the protection and advancement of the public health, 'mens sana in corpore sano'. While large sums must be set aside, not only for original research in every branch of knowledge, but for the promotion of music, literature, and fine art, upon which "any real development of civilization fundamentally depends."

Jones opened the book a hundred times during their walk, kissed it as often, talked much to himself, and very little to his companions. At all which the guide exprest some signs of astonishment to Partridge; who more than once shook his head, and cryed, Poor gentleman! orandum est ut sit mens sana in corpore sano.

Two little anecdotes are expressive of his tender feeling for this incongruous friend. Boswell had asked him to sup at Beauclerk's. He started, but, on the way, recollecting himself, said, "I cannot go; but I do not love Beauclerk the less." Beauclerk had put upon a portrait of Johnson the inscription, Ingenium ingens Inculto latet hoc sub corpore.

But they have not the easy languid deuce-may-care air of the young bucks of the Hicks and Kicklebury school they can't put on their clothes with that happy negligence; their neck-cloths sit quite differently on them, somehow: they become very hot when they dance, and yet do not spin round near so quickly as those London youths, who have acquired experience in corpore vili, and learned to dance easily by the practice of a thousand casinos.

"'Mens sana in corpore sano," he said aloud, and sighed. "He has worked too hard this summer. I never saw him like that. If he should " and he stopped; then he rose, and looked at his watch and slowly followed the Bishop's steps.

"Spiritus intus alit, totamque infusa per artus Mens agitat molem, et magno se corpore miscet." The harmony of physical and moral laws is not a mere fancy, nor a forced analogy; they are both expressions of the same will, manifestations of the same spirit.

-Fiat experimentum in corpore vili, I said, laughing at my own expense. I don't doubt the medicament is quite as good as the patient deserves, and probably a great deal better, I added, reinforcing my feeble compliment. Now I am thinking of it, I will give you one or two pieces of advice. Be careful to assure yourself that the person you are talking with wrote the article or book you praise.

'Fiat experimentum in corpore vili. Follow me, sir; and as we go pray cast your eyes over the prison rules, and see whether you can find 'a punishment-jacket. No, sir, you will not find even a Spanish collar, or a pillory, or a cross, far less a punishment-jacket which combines those several horrors." Mr. Hawes hung back and begged a word with the justices.

It was clear that either all my conclusions were totally wrong, or else the motto mens sana in corpore sano contained wrapped up in itself some acroamatic meaning which I found myself unable to penetrate, and which the authors had found no Greek motto capable of conveying.

They had reason; for it creates respect in those who follow them, and is a terror to the enemy, to see a leader of a brave and goodly stature march at the head of a battalion: "Ipse inter primos praestanti corpore Turnus Vertitur arma, tenens, et toto vertice supra est."
