childish toys compared with that most marvelously wrought mechanism, 

the human body. Let us proceed to take this wonderful machine in pieces 

and study its various parts and the manner in which they are put 

together. 

 

The Two Objects of Human Existence.--The objects of this wonderfully 

formed mechanism are two: 1. The maintenance of an individual life; 

2. The production of similar individuals which shall also have the power 

of maintaining individual lives. The same may be said of every plant 

that grows, and every animal. Each tree, plant, and shrub has some 

useful service to perform while it lives, in addition to the production 

of seed from which other plants may grow. For example, the object of 

the majestic oak which towers high and broadly spreads its leafy 

branches is not to produce acorns merely, but to give place for birds 

to build their nests, to present an inviting shade for cattle, and to 

afford protection in a variety of ways to numerous living creatures 

which need such aid. The same may be said of all vegetable growths, 

each particular plant having its peculiar purposes to fulfill, and all 

together acting as purifiers of the air for the benefit of man and lower 

animals. 

 

The principle is equally true as applied to lower animals, as is 

evidenced by the numerous ways in which domestic animals are utilized. 

Indeed, it seems that the prime purpose of life, not only with all lowly 

living creatures, as plants and animals, but with man as well, is to 

live and act as individuals. But the important function of reproduction, 

or producing other similar individuals, though incidental, is 

necessary to the perpetuation of the race or species. 

 

In order that an individual human being may live and develop, it is 

necessary that he should eat, drink, digest, and assimilate, and that 

he should be able to move about, to perceive,--that is, to hear, see, 

feel, smell, taste, determine weight and distinguish temperature,--to 

think, and to express ideas in language. In order to keep his vital 

machinery in order, it is necessary that the body should also be able 

to repair injuries which may occur in consequence of wear or accident, 

and to remove out of the way wornout material which would otherwise 

obstruct the working of the delicate machinery of which his body is 

constructed. Each of these functions requires special organs and 

apparatuses to carry on the work; and these we will now briefly 

consider:-- 

 

The Nutritive Apparatus.--This consists of organs for the purpose of 

taking in food or nourishment, digesting it, and distributing it 

throughout the body wherever it is needed. These are chiefly the mouth 

and teeth for receiving and chewing the food, the stomach and intestines 

for digesting and absorbing it, and the heart and blood-vessels for 

distributing it to the body. 

 

The Moving Apparatus.--For the purpose of producing motion, we have 

the muscles and the bones, by which the food is received, masticated, 

and swallowed, the blood circulated, the body moved about from place 

to place, and speech, expression, respiration, and many other important
