Alchemy miv be compared to the man who told his sons he h:id left them gold buried somewhere in his vineyard ; where they by digging found no gold, but by turning up tlie mould, about the roots of their vines, procured a plentiful vintage. So the search and endeavors to make gold have brought many useful inventions and instructive experiments to light.—Bacon.

A man conversing in earnest, if he watch his intellectual processes, will find that a material image, more or less luminous, arises in his mind, contemporaneous with every thought, which furnishes the vestment of the thought. Hence, good writing and brilliant discourse are perpetual allegories.—Emerson.
