To be Cheerful. The sovereign voluntary path to cheerfulness, if -our spontaneous cheerfulness be lost, is to sit up cheerfully, to look round cheerfully, and to act and speak as if cheerfulness were already there. If such conduct doesn't make you soon feel cheerful, nothing else on that occasion can. So to feel brave, act as if we were brave; use all our will to that end, and a courage fit will very likely replace the fit of fear. Again, in order to feel kindly toward a person to whom we have been inimical, -the only way is more or less deliberately to smile, to make sympathetic inquiries, and to force our- selves to say genial things. One hearty laugh to- gether will bring enemies in closer communion of heart than hours spent on both sides in inward wrestling with the mental demon of uncharitable feeling. PROF. WM. JAMES,
