MOW THE WORLD SLEEPS
■'v • «
(By Nauia Davidcoa, W. Virgiaia State Collect)
Ton can’t escape diath and taxes—^yes, and sleep. It is interest-
ing to consider how, in our normal lives, each day ends with going
to aleep. It seems tfajat everywhere, for eve^one, each day ends
with the same thing. For some, day ends witb the going do^''of the
ana, for othiers it ends in the small hours of £he early morning. Re
gardless to the time of its ending, the day for a normal person ends
with Ilia going to^rieep. No matter what our tai^ks of the day, vSr-
riea, difincult^s, happiness or sorrows, they all end in the Uours
we spend etah night in deep. ^
Tb» world does not as yet agree with the psychologist whio lays
: tiiat ilaep is only an escape meehanwBdUtd not neeeaitilr. Instead
Sitting away from tbe idea of sleeping, it seems be coming
to U in its demand for bedsteads that are more comfortable,
demand toda^ is for bedsteads that are lighter than the
km cast-iron bedsteads of the middle 19th century. T%is demand
la balag Mtered to by more dainty designs, and bedsteads which
ara welded together. This new structure disigns. The brass bed-
still used in some parts of the world« but many pattern-
ones are generally preferred.
toasa be«te tiiat are stiM used are sold chieifly te Sooth
A—rica. Soutii Africa, parts of Egypt, and the Far East.J ^
Yet, there lire parts of the w»rld whiere a bedstead, is unknown.
Stealing T/imcM range from the tree tops to the floors of^uts, and
^Mietlmes eveh thie baz« ground. In the Near IBast it has beeh the
qwtma for yean to make beds simply by pulling up a number of
miea OB tile floor tof the room. Giishions are also used, but as a
rule the Persian simply reclines upn these piles in some soft grar-
nent and makes no use of shieets, blankets or any kind of covering.
Ia contnst to this, in India the babitanti( live in the open fo such
an eii^eat tint the designing and ornamentation of beds is aegli-
gfl^e eaceept for the xu eof royadty. ^
In Knrea and northern China floors are made of flat stones,
brido, or earth. Mues are placed on the top, layer of the floor^
Somewhat betoir ^e level of the floor is a fire-place. When a fire
is made in this f!r-.pl«e, heat circulat«i through theflues in the
ftoor. The Chinese arrang^e sleeping places by putting mats on the
ilaor.
Japaneae too, have a unique custom. The whole flw of'»
house, which is about twMve feet square, covered with
aaaia (tatanui) la the bed. They sleep be^een under quilts (shiki-
fntoB), and over qoilta (kake-foton).
Ifce floor k warmed during cold weather with a wooden box
iaaldiag a charcoal burner (katatsu). Sometimes whole famUiea
aieep on te same tataml, their feet Cowards the burner, and-their
and their bodies radiating from thait point like spikes of a wheel.
^WMI* wa may l^dnlc that these beds are miserable when compared
witb ooss, let us consider some who recline in places that seem to
«a impoaattile. For instance, the only bed that thte African Bushman

THE LIGHT THAT FAILED
The readers^ of my weekly re
leases will recall that I was c im
pelled to ungo an operation for
cataract last June. For several
months my eye sight, was in a
state of total eclipse which caus
ed suspension of nar releases for
several months. I became so deep
ly interested in the events of thie
political campaign that I resum
ed thfe discussion of issues
despite my almost total blindnesr.
them were dictate J In total dark
ness. Since my first operation I
have not been able to read one
word of a printed page, and have
been compelled to rely upon tlie
radio and audible read by others.
Let me, stop tlere and pay my
compliments to the radio. One
can keep fairly well posted or.
what is going on in the world at
large through thle medium of
sound, PersonI who are bom
blind often times acquire acute
intelligence, who can not only
keep pace with current event?,
but c^ actually contribute to ^
thought and opinion of the world.
There must be a world di
ameter of difference between
those w^i6 were bom blind and
have never enjoyed the blessings
of sight and those who, after be
ing educated, have become afflic
ted with blindness. These have
but to live upon tire momenfcuw
of past accumulation. The Joss of
sight may intensify ttle jpower of
reflection. Indeed, whenever one
wants to think deeply upon his
observations and experienc^-w
life, he is pr^ne to shut his eyes
and close out the floating occur
ences of events about him.
The poet Homer was blind and
yet hie could, with a keen inner
vision visualize aild portray the
story of the Trojan War immorta
lized in the Iliad.. One also thinks
of John Milton, tkle blind poet,
who not only was the author of
Paradise Lost, but was secretary
of State in the cabinet of OUver
Cromwell. I can recall two mem
bers of thte United States Senate
who' were totally__blihd,- iMrt-wlKr
kept fully abreast of their cot'
leagues in discussion and analy
sis of political events.
are eiu>minded. Illiterate people
are essentially ear-minded. They
lack the ability of receiving know
ledge throughJ the medium of the
printed press. When one loses
his sigjit, he becomes illiterate;
that is, he can neither read nor
write. After passing through tie
actual experience, I am fully able
to appreciate the value of lite
rary and the disadvantage of
losing it when once ^tained.
But illiterate people are not
nec^iiriry igfaotftnt, nor are tfaiar Guy ^Ia*yi|fc

less deficient In thought power
than their more fortunate Hterate
fellows. Visual symbols of know
ledge are a wonderful aid in faci
litating the thought process, but
they cannot originate it.
Thle poet Gray tells us in jhis
elegy on a country cFurch yard
that “Some mute inglorious here
/may rest.” Indeed we have had
thle remarkable example of Helen
"KMer In whom the loss of sigiit,
sound and speech could not estop
the expreraion of that wonderful
thlought powei^’with which she
was endowed.
Out of the depths, of his blind
ness John Milton pathetically
aslffi: ‘Will God exact day labor,
light denied ” Thle kind, charw-
ter and quantity of work exacted
is in proportion to the faculties
and abilities vouchsafed. One is
called upon to labor according to
lis ability ; however great or
small that ability may be.
As f^ myself, I was coinpelled
to give ttp for thle time being,
toy platform work and the prep-
aration^^of my autobiography, and
was compelled to limit my output
to my weekly release and jnindrr
newspaper contributions the
white press. But my interest in
things in general was »o whit a-
bated. ^ *

There are two circuits of^ thought

Paul Reynolds was like a ihad*
oyi*- aa he moved moiseleaely to^
ward |he house that stood like a
gre(Nl t hulking shadow in the
n%ht. As he crept slowly and
cautiously anyong the hedges and
shrubbery, he felt a thrill of ex
pectancy run up and down his
spine. It was pleasant. At last
he had ilne c^portonity t^ 4®
whaii^e had 'wanted’ to dd so
long. T^s^t^«f a^-JDCrfect tod.
No -(ttww.*. There
'would be no evidence.
He moved fiwter as he neared
Uie house. It was very dark, but
it didn't ibothet him. He knew
every inch of that large yard and
house. He hadn’t worked tiiera
five years for nothing. He smiled
bitterly in the dark as he thought
of the last two years. Tfeey had
been two yean of planing and
siting. Two years during which
he worked for a man he h^sid
learned to Fite.
He had once worshipped Cyrus
Holman and had really enjoyed
working for him, but was before
anything had hipapene'd to Mar
tha Carter. ■ She had been the
housekeeper. A. young and beau
tiful dark-eyed girl was Martha.
Full of life and gayiety. And Paul
had loved her. They were to be
married. ITien Cyrus Holman
looked at fcer and wanted her.
He got her because he was Cyrui
Holman. He, Wtth his imHitms,
had always got what he wanted.
He was a greedy man and it did
not make any different with him^
whether he hurt anyone in get
ting what he yanted or not. Con-*
sideration for others wapn't in
his plan fow living. He offered
nothing and took everything.
Paul’s blood boiled every time
he thought of how Martha, a
helpless and Innocent girl, had to
jomply with fcifed employer’s every
wish in order to maintain her
job. She was humble and trusting.
She had seen^o danger until it
was too late. Then Ae went to
Paul; the man who loved her
ly, and told him heg-
story. Paifl never heard her voice
again. She took poisin that night.
Paul and Cyrus fioman were the
only people who knew the ■ real
cause of suicide, and they didn t
tell. Cyrus Homan kept quiet be
cause he wanted n®. scandal, and
Paul kept quiet because he knew
his word meant nothiw? against
Cyrus Homan bis millions.
Paul promised himseli that he
would have his revenge at any
price. Someday he would see that
justice be done. Someday l»e
would kill Cyrus Sfolman.

awhile and listened. It was quiet.
Hie h'ause was a big tww-story
frame atn^cture ^h thirteen
rooms and a large lower and up
per front porch, Large vines ran
up and around the big posts that
supported the porch. A man could
easily climb up to the top p^rch
by those vines, without making
any noise, If he was careful.
Once on the top porch, the rest
"jrtiere were a door and large
window that opened from Cyrus
Holman’s bedroom to the top
porch, and the window was al
ways put up at bed time. This
meant that there would be no
trouble getting into thle room
from the top porch. Cyrus Hol
man was a sound sleeper. Paul
Idiew that he was hard to wake-
up after he hiad gone to sleep.
Paul sat down and removed
his shoes. He put on a pair «:f
rubber gloves and began to cl{rab
to the top porch. He did it noise
lessly. On the top porcH he listen
ed. It was quiet as death. 'Hien
he took an ice-pick out of his
pocket and holding it in his glov
ed hand, tip-toed to the windaw.
It was already up high enough,
so he slipped quietly inside thp
room. Paul stood' still inside Cy-
ms Homan’s bedroom and listen
ed again. There was no sound
save the steady and heavy breath
ing of Holman.
Paul tip-toed to the bed. He
knew exactly where it was and
just how the man would be ly
ing in it. He stood over the bed
for a moment looking down in
the dark at a spot he would
strike. He^ raised the ioe-pick
and sen’t It plun^ng down onco
twice, three times in rapid suc-
cession. There was a groan of
agony and then quletnessT^^
Quietly Paul went back to the
window and slipped out on the
porch. He went down tlie .vines
wiUiout making a sound loud e-
nough to be heard ten feet away.
Back x»n th" grnnnd, he calmly
wasn't frightened. He knew that
thobest detective in tha world
couldn’t find the.murderer if he
could find no clues. And tiie lo
cal police |aid there wera aone^
Hb }:«d been ei^tra #bl ,not
to leave any.
Immediately upon his arrival,
detMtive Coleman went int? a
secret conference with the chief*
of-police. It was a short c
ence. Then he went to the
of the crime.
That hbd been two ^foars ago,_
and Ckus Holman had forgotten.
But l^ul hiadnt. He hod lived,
those last two yev* from day to
drfy just praying and waiting for
Ms cltance. It had come at last.
At last'Cyrus Holman would be
in the house alone. All the ser
vants would be off to-night. He
had waited3or jnat auchi a n^ht
jj thfe. Everythlat was perfect
No one would ever know exactly
/hat had happened. Not even
Cyrus Homan himself would
know what had happened.
Paul stopped at the comer of
the house. He stood very sttll for
put on his shoes and slipped a-
way in the night. ^ >
The next morning the whola
town was alarmed with the start
ling news that Cyrus Holman had
been murdered in his sleep, Tl;e
police could find no ^s^ues. They
only kne:^_that the murderer used
a shwrp' pointed instrument that
penetrated the vicym's heavt.
There was no sign of an attempt
of burglary. There were two
ways by which Ihie- murderer
could have reached the victims’s
bedroom, but the polict were baf
fled with the mystery of the
, i”i
crime^. ;
A week passed, and the crime
was still an unsolved mysteiy. By
this time *the police suspected
everyone, but was still unable to
find any evidence. Then Emeat
Coleman, the natio'ns greatest
detective, arrived on the scene.
Nfiw hope was expressed by -the
police department. Pterhaps now
this murder mys€ery would be sol
ved. Most of the town expressed
the belief that the great detective,
would solve the mystery in less
than two days.
Pau felt a liftle uneasy, but he
it took Paul by Surprise. He
started and opened hia mouth,
but he didn’t speak. He just

Paul got ujs and walked blind

“Did you really find and evl%

that h« had overlooked some

There were three men in the
