But what is this spiritual element? It is the passion for inward perfection, with its sorrows, its aspirations, its joy. These mental ...

On the other hand, we can allow hop-oil to stand for days without its odor being perceptibly changed; it appears to me more than probable that the peculiar smell of old hops is due far more to the oxidation of the bitter substance than to the ...
