By others through hygiene, fasting, and prayer.

And I thinks agin: "Mebby I better jump in now and stop this thing." And then I thinks agin: "No, it is between them three and Providence."

What Blackwood's so basely insinuated of Keats "Back to the shop, Mr. John, stick to plasters, pills and ointment-boxes," inappropriate to the author of Endymion, was strictly true of the author of Peer Gynt. Curiosity and hero-worship once took the author of these lines to Grimstad. It is a marvellous object-lesson on the development of genius.

How hearty is he become to the cause of God and the work of reformation. How readily doth he swallow down these bitter pills, which are prepared for and urged upon him, as necessary to effect that desperate care under which his affairs lie!

The most obstinate cases yield at once. Thousands of once desperate women bless the name of Relief Pills." "I don't want to look at it," said the Doctor. "No, I guess you don't!
