other bchvj. Thomas A. Illison, the
electrician, proved by his own east
how ltcsh can be acquired by sleep.
One week he slept fourteen hours a
day and tho next week twenty-twc
hoars. Tho result va.; a jj-aia of aeven
pounds in we::r!i1. A woman of only
moderate physical : tren;;th was alced
how she mami.rtd to attend to the
lare business from which she rained
Mtpport. and the answer was that hhe
obtained it by t.leepir.'r ten lioura six
days and spending the whole of tho
seventh day ia bed. There has been a
visible advance in tho health of the
American people durhur the pa-;t twen
ty or thirty years. Their stock of vi
tality has inciva ;e 1 and they live
longer. And while there are other
reasons for this ehaurre. the chief one
Is that people sleep longer and rest
more. The hoari for work have grad
ually grown fewer. Factory opera
tives are no lov.yvr compelled to hurry
to their work at live o'clock in the
morning and work until seven o'clock
in the evening1.
Ihisiness an 1 professional men 0 to
their ountiri ;-:-. :.i i and offices an
hour or more later an 1 leave as much
earlier in the afleri 100:1. The result ia
more time for i.l.vp and better health.
Ihit there is still more room for im
provement in this way. Walter lie
sant, the Kn;:ii.,l ncveli.st, said a few
weeks a;ro at Harvard i:;.-iveriaty, when
commenting on the graduating class:
"A fine, noble lookiag lot of young
men. They are unlike our English
university student:-. phy.Meaily. I think
our young men. as a vide, are bigger,
heavier, stouter men. while jours
have more nervous activity than ours.
1'hey are slighter ami, perhaps taller,
but they s.eem to be more highly
Strung nervously." That is the trouble
with a majority of graduates. Not
withstanding the (:TO'.vth of the
athletic spirit in colleges, too many
young men go out into life too "h'ghly
strung nervously." There is no better
medicine than goo-J sleep and plenty
of it, and many a boy and man is
crippled in energy by an unwise habit
of getting up too early in the morning.
The American people would be
happier, there would be less crime
committed if people slept longer. It
is time the so-called sluggard had his
rights and the man who prefers his
morning snoo.o to a morning cocktail
is estimated at his proper value.

colonel in the war of l'JiJ and com

Fhcjnix correspondent of the Cincin

having obtained so much as color of

On ore of the canyon walls, mere
than one hundred feet from anything
that could have furnished the barbaric
artist a foot or handhold, there is a
weird j a:a ramie view in three scenes.
Under a tree a child is sleeping. One
little hand lies across its breast, while
the other has fallen carelessly by its
side. A few feet from the sleeping
buhe. a large snake, evidently a rattle
snake, is coiled to strike. Down the
canyon, toward the west, is scene two.
The snake is crawling away, and the
limbs of the child are drawn as though
in the last convulsions of death. The
sr.ake lias done its deadly work. Still
further down the canon is scene three.
A warrior, evidently the father of the
child, with t ne arm clasps his dead
bal; with the other hand he holds a
club. Upon Ids face the rude artist
has depicted a look of mortal anguish
and hate. A snake lies dead at his
feet. Tii is is probably the most beau

In the Woman's building in the
French exhibit can be seen one of the
last pictures painted by that strange
child of genius, Marie liashkirtseff, in
1SS3. It is a study of street gamins,
two boys w!i se faces she has idealized.
They are f i?lly- dressed, even to shoes
and stockings. The larger one carries
an umbrella thrust under his arm and
a green h af is between his lips. The
great tragedy of life is suggested in
the face of the older boy; that of the
younger is bolder and more confident.
The picture is not one to make a deep
impression, but the name of the artist
painted by the brush that was even
then dropping from her weary young
hand gives it an interest which is be
yond the reach of a mere art critieisxa.
