A number of prominent members of Dr. Spald

of the “ Second Baptist Nickel Club” was given
to the fortnightly meetings, and arrangements
were made to insure to them the entertainment
of music, reading and recitations.
We learn from Major Campbell Wallace, who
is one of the very few genuinely benevolent men
now living, that the nursery of M. Cole & Co., of
this city, sends scuppernong and grape cuttings
to France, fruit trees to California, and last year
sent them to nearly every Southern State. The
Major owns an interest in this nursery, and his
chief object in investing in it was to do good to
the human family by introducing fruits among
them. If mankind would eat less meat and
grease and more fruit and vegetables, there
would be fewer doctors in the land.

THE PROBLEM QUESTION.
To the Editor of The Sunny South:
I notice in your last issue, that “Engineer”
gives 219 oxen and a fraction as the correct an
swer to “ Book Agents”- problem, and says he
“knows he is right." “Engineer” may believe it,
but it is hardly to be supposed that he knows
more than Sir Isaac Newton, who, it is said,
originateil and published the problem more than
two hundred years ago. Still, he may be able to
prove Sir Isaac wrong. We would suggest, how
ever, that he again examine, very carefully, this
pretty problem before setting out to refute the
originator of the theory of gravitation.
Now, a word for “R. A. M.” He is mistaken
in supposing problem No. 1 one of those inde
terminate examples of which he writes, having
overlooked the very condition which renders it
determinate, viz: that the answer be in whole
numbers. The beauty of the problem consists in
introducing this condition into the equation;
and it may be solved either arithmetically or
algebraically. He reasons well, however, and
doubtless, if he try again, success will reward
him; but if he fails, perhaps “Engineer” may
put him on the track, and if further aid be
necessary, we suggest Mr. “T. S. H.” as an ex
pert guesser. Let us have, Mr. Editor, no foolish
problems; but only such as improve the mind
and stimulate investigation.

Upon this subject, I give you the phrenological
teachings of O. S. Fowler, who says:':
“If approbativeness predominate, and caus-
alty be moderate, you may flatter, and if the
brain be small, put it on thickly. Praise their
dress, features, appearance on particular occa
sions, and any and everything they take pride
in. Take much notice of them, and keep con
tinually saying something to tickle their vanity;
for this organization will bear all the ‘soft soap’
you can administer. When you have gained
this organ, you have got the ‘bell-sheep,’ which
all the other faculties will blindly follow on the
run. But if approbativeness he only full or
large, with reason and morality quite as large or
larger, and the head of a good size, and well
developed, * soft soap’ will not take, but sicken; I
for reason will soon penetrate your motive, and j
morality will reverse the other faculties against
you, and destroy all chance of gaining the affec- i
tions. See to it that you really esteem those j
with this organization — esteem them not for J
their dress, beauty, manners, etc., but for their
moral purity, their elevated sentiments, their
tine feelings, and their intellectual attainments.
As they estimate themselves and others not by a
standard of wealth, beauty, dress, etc , but by a
moral and intellectual standard, so your show
ing them that you really esteem those qualities
which they prize so highly, will cause them to
perceive that your tastes harmonize with theirs,
and thus turn their leading organs in your favor,
and unite and endear them to you.
“If benevolence predominate in the person,
show yourself kind, not to the individual alone,
nor in little matters of modern politeness, but
as an habitual feeling of your soul, always gush
ing forth spontaneously at the call of want or
suffering, and ready to make personal sacrifices
to do good. Be philanthropic, and show your
