PHRENOLOGY.

CHAPTER I.

THE BRAIN AND NERVOUS SYSTEM.

1. Children, you have learned something respecting the construction of your bodies. I will now tell you about your minds, your brains, or, in other words, the nervous system, which includes the brain, spinal marrow, and the nerves.

2. You all know that you have minds or souls ; for you think, speak, and act; you are conscious when you have done right, and when you have done wrong; you äre hapry or unhappy ; you cry and you laugh ; you sing and you play; you run and you walk ; what is it that prompts you to do all these things, and many more?

3. Some of you may say, it is my bones, or my muscles, my heart, my blood, or my stomach, which induces me to act and move. No, my dear children ; it is true that we could not move without these bones and muscles, and that we could not live without a heart, stomach, etc. ; but it is not these alone that prompt and direct all our movements.

What is the subject of chapter first? 1. About what will children now learn? What does the nervous system include ? 2. What are all conscious of possessing? What are some of the evidences that we have souls or minds ? 3. How would some account for these emotions ? Are their ideas correct?
