SLEEP A PREVENTIVE OF DISEASE. People have very generally learned the lesson that natural sleep is the best medicine of the sick. A scientific writer now calls attention to its power as a preventive of disease. He remarks, as an instance, that sleep taken at the right moment will prevent all attack of nervous headache. If the subjects of such headaches will watch its coming, they will find that it begins with a feeling of weariness or heaviness.

It is, write! a Pbysioian, one of the curious tirm 8 J alcohol stimulates the imagina- & RIV«8 a clearer, more practical in- light into the relation of events of life. The irl of thought roused up bv the increased circulation of the blood in the brain is not imagination it is not a superior insight or conception of the relation of eventa, but is a rapid re-produotlon of previous thoughts, soon merging into confusion. —inebriate never creates any new ideas or new views; all his fancies are tumultuous, blurred, and barren. The apparent brilliancy is only the flash of mania, quickly followed oy dementia. Alcohol always lowers the brain capacity, and lowers the power of discriminating the relation of ideas and events. After a few periods of intoxication, the mind under the influence of spirits is a blank, blurred pag*. The man who uses .pirita to give mental force and clearness is doing thu very worst thing possible to destroy this effect. Alcohol is ever and always a paralyzant. It never creates anything; it never gives strength or force that did not exist before it never gives a clearer concep- tion and power of execution, but always lowers, destroys, and breaks down. # # THIS IIEGULATION OF SLEEP.

The Lancet, m How TO SAVE THE KYESIGHT. Next to sunlight the incandescent light gives the best illumination for reading, and all notions of the injurious effect on the eyes of the electric light are erroneous. The vast majority of people who wear glassy can see well without them. They use them to avoid a constant strain on the eyes. The act of focalisation is a muscular one, and uses up nervous energy. The over-sighted eye, in which the focus comes behind the retina, has to perform this muscular act continually. The results are headaches, irritability, and nausea. The only remedy in such cases is to wear glasses. The near-sighted child should wear spectacles, because they are the best preventive against increase of near- sightedness, and also because he loses a great part of his eduoation in not being able to see more than a few feet away. For the eyes in a healthy state there is but one safe wash—pure cold water. When the eyelids are inflamed the best lotion ia a weak solution of salt and water. JNever apply poultices to the eyes or use "eye waters" without the advice of a phj s'cian. At ths first symptoms of near-sightedness spectacles should be worn. There is a great deal of popular prejudice against spectacles, but there are two good reasons why they should be worn, and only two. One is that we see better, and the other that the strain on the eyes may be relieved, lu reading the book or paper should be held at a distance of from lOin. to 15in. from the eyes. The reader's position should be such that the light may fall on the book and not on the eyes. The liarht. itself should be uufticien*. Nothing is so injurious to the eyes as poor light in reading. » ATTEND TO YOUR HEALTH. A cold (says the Family Doctor'' in Cassell's Family Magazine) is a departure from health, and should really be attended to at j once. J)o n'lt let it cure itself. Get rid of it soon. Do not feed it, though, but starve it,. One cold after another nearly always ends in the thickening of the mucous membrane of the bronchial tubes, and before you are avy-,i-e of it you become the vioiim of winter cough. The morning tub (cold, I mean) is a very sure preventive of colds. Never over-clothe or overheat yourself. The neok should be kept cool. Keep away from fues indoors if you are subject to colds. Cough, if not the result of simple laryn- geal or bronchial catarrh, may mean a very serious departure from health and the sooner one sees a doctor in such a case the better. Do not be afraid to consult him. llemember, it is only tbo<e that delay who suffer in the end. ] do not advise you to rush away to a physician nith every trifling ailment, bul- it is belter to be sure than sorry. Many people would benefit much by taking cod-liver oil for a month or six weeka aboui the changes of the season. Probably the diet would have to be lowered a little, and an occasional mild aperient taken. Getting thin in another serious departure from health. "One generally does lose weight in winter And regain it in summer; but a slow and steady decrease in weight calls aloud for medical interference. Want of sleep and restless nights are symptoms which cannot be overlooked. The cause must be found and removed. The trouble may certainly arise from over-work and worry oombined, but in most oases the stomach and digestive system are the roots of the evil. Nervous people worry most, but thei-Iso work most- Well, the question one is inclined to ask himself when he feels something wrong with his health is 11 Am I overworking my- self F" I would answer thus If you really enjoy working it cannot injure you very much; but, on the other band, if it is force- work, and you find Ii ttléplealure in it, then it will tell on your constitution." But many people cannot afford rest. Well, but won del s can be done by taking exercise by breathing only fresh air night and day, indoors and out; and by careful regulation of the diet. In conclusion, let me entreat of you, as you value your happiness, not to neglect first departures from health. The story of the reservoir has really a moral for every one of us.

THE STERNER SEX. Are ye good men iuid true ? It is odd that all men are trying so hard to get even. The married man who is out with the boys is generally out with his wife as well. It is the man who has pawned his watch who can hardly call his time his own. Tact is better than genius. The man that sits on the baby seldom scores with the mother. The man who tried heroic measures found they were several sizes too large for him. The man who is waiting for something to turn up," might turn up his sleeves and go to work. The man whohides bis light under a bushel is apt to be very extravagant. Usually a pint cup would serve the purpose. It is a good rule to forgive every man who has done you an injury, and especially if you find that you can't pay him back. A man always feels a great deal worse when the doctor has called his disease by a high- sounding and unfamiliar Latin name. Almost every man thinks he may be a hero if he only had the chance; but when the chance comes, he always give a job to some other fellow. When a big man in a little town moves to a larger town, he is putting himself in a position to learn his first big lesson in humila on. "Don't judge a mortal by his clothts: It isn't fair," the sage declares. Yet tailors that the writer knows Are anxious to be judged by theirs. Shun three things: A man with a soft. tongue, a woman with a long one, and a widow in half-mourning. The 1m& if you don't want to marry. SOUND ADVICE. This is the proper time of the year to for- give your enemies; and, if you have none, to resolve to show more character hence- forth. THE DIFFERENCE. When men are bound by friendly Lands And meet each other, they shake hands; When they become antagonists, They meet each other shaking iists. THE MYSTERY SOLVED. If, irbile dressing, your collar button falls out of the collar band upon the floor, do not waste your breath in swearing, but go out and buy a pair of doubie-soled boots. Then re- turn to your room., put on your new boots and walk about the floor. When you hear a crunching sound you will know that you have found the button. WOULD YOUR OWN FUTUBE. Instead of saying that a man is the creature of circumstance, it would be nearer the mark to say that man is the architect of circum- stance. Our strength is measured by our plastio power. From the same materials one man builds palaces, another hovels; one ware- houses, another villas; bricks and mortar are mortar and bricks until the architect can make them something else. Thua it is that in the same family, iu the same circumstances, one man rears a stately edifice, while his brother, vacillating and incompetent, lives for ever ansid ruins; the block of granite which was an obstacle in the pathway of the weak beeoniM a stepping-stone in the pathway of the strong.- EVEN TEMPER.

The finest grades of razors are so deliute that even the famous Damascus sword blades cannot equal them in texture. It is not gener- ally known that the grain of a Sw«diah razor ia so sensitive that its general direction is changed after a short service. When you buy a fine razor the grain runs from the upper end of the outer point in a diagonal direction towards the handle. Constant stropping will twist the steel until th-e grain appears to be set straight up and down. Subsequent use will drag the grain outwards from the edge, so that after steady use for several months the fibre of the steel occupies a position ex- actly the reverse of thaC-which it did on the day of purchase. The process also affects the I temper of the blade, and when the grain sets from the lower outer point towards the back you have a razor which cannot be kept in condition, even by the most conscientious barber. But here's another curious freak that will take place in the same tool: Leave the razor alone for a month or two, and when you take it up you will find that the grain has assumed its first position. This operation can be re- peated until the steel is worn through to the back. A FEW WORDS ABOUT WIVES. "A wife is the gift of heaven—there's no doubt of it. Every other kind of gift, such as land9, rents, furniture, right of pasture or common—these are all mere gifts of fortune, that pass away like shadows on a wall; but you have to apprehend no such misfor- tune with a wife. Your wife will last longer, perhaps, even than you may desire. A wife Why, how can a man have any adversity that has a wifw ° Answer me that. Tongue oannot tell, or heart think, of the felicity there is between a man and his wife. If he is poor, she helps him to work. She takes care of his money for him and never wastes anything, She never saya I Yes' when he says 'No.' Do this,' says he. 'Direotly,' says she. Oh, blessed institution! Oh, precious wedlock thou art so joyous, and at the same time so virtuous, and so recommended to us all, and so approved by us all, that every man who is worth a farthing should go down on his bare knees, every day of his existence, and be thankful for having such a wife or, if he hasn't got one, he ought to pray for one, and beg that she may last him to his life's end, for his life ia in that case set in security. "lie lias only to act by his wife's advic-3, j snd he may hold up bis head with the best. A wife is so true and so vyise. Oli. ever while j you live take yonr wife's advice if you would be thought a wise man!"—C/«MlCcr# Moder- nised by Leigh Hunt, — ENGLISHMEN AND THE ,'LASS. Nobody can wear an eye-glass like an Englishman (says an American). For one thing nobody can look so ridiculous as the Englishman with the glass in his eye. The imitative foreigner is ridiculous enough, to be sure, but the ridiculous aspect seems out of place on him, whereas it fits the Englishman to perfection, and seems to belong to him by right of nationality and Magna Obarta. Out- side of England the single eye-glass is an exotic; in England it is indigenous to the institutions of the countiy and the nature of the featherless biped. There is nothing that an Englishman can- not' and will not do with a glass in his eye. He may take his matutinal tub with his eye- glass rigidly fixed in position h. will dress with it still before either of his organs of sight; he will breakfast with it, walk with it, speechify with it, wash his hands while tbe optical toy is still glistening against his nose he will bathe in the surf at Brighton without removing this insignia of (of what?); he will wear it in the light, in the dark, when he reads, drinks, rows on the river," paddles in a canoe, rides at a hunt, drives fou;1 in hand; there is no act, and there is no relation of life in which the Englishman, who wears a single eye-glass, will not and does not wear this perpetual companion of his waking hours. But when he wishes to see anything he looks out of the unencumbered eye. AN ANXIOUS FASHION.

OLD MAIDS WE LIKE BEST. There are a few old maids who have elected to remain single. These are women who, having no special tie, are the trusted and tried friends of all. They share the joys and sorrows of nieces and nephews of all ages, who often oonfide in their "aunties" more than they do in their own parents; whilst the aunts are the nurses, comforters, and consolers in sickness, sorrow, and death, THEY SMILE TO SHOW THEIR DIMPLES. For a girl, two dimples, one to each corner of the month or near those points are a lavish gift. The daintiest smile will bring them out well defined and ravishing, a broad grin will expand them into furrows. Therefore, it is woman's privilege to smile, if she has dimples. This is no news to the fair sex. A woman with dimples would not lose one for the world. She is very careful of them, and regulates her smiles to tthe capacity of her dimples. « How TO nausn THE HAIR. The proper way to brush the hair," says a well-known hairdresser, "is not to brush it lengthwise, but to hold the ends of the hair, if it is long enough, and simply scrub the scalp with the brush. This process promotes the circulation of the blood and excites the oil glands to action. After the hair has been thoroughly brushed in this way, it should be then finished with a few vigorous strokes lengthwise of the hair." » » WOMAN'S ENEMY. I am free to confess (writes a woman) that the man whom above all men I hate most, the man who is my natural enemy, is the driver of a tramcar. How often have I braved the danger of madly-driven/trucks, wagons, and cabs to stand in the street and hail a passing car ? How often have I seen that car go rolling past me, no one on it giving a sign of acknowledgment that I was m this world? 'I he sensation of standing in the street as you beckon to a driver, who looks straight ahead, utterly ignoring you, is beyond describing. And we are forced to appear calm, cool, and indifferent. We can- not betray our real feelings, for a woman must always be a dissembler and look un- ruffled when her bosom is torn with distrac- tion BENEFITS OF THE BATH. The bath as a great aid to refinement of figure, and, pi-operly used, will of'en prevent obesity. Women undergoing the strain of work and care that often falls to mothers and housekeepers should insist on having their baths in temperature from ØOdeg, to 112deg., which refresh one like sleep, for the simple reason that they wash away the waste which clogs the vessels of the skin; this relieves the veins, sets the arteries flowing more freely, and rejuvenates the whole system. After a night's nursing a very warm bath will re- store one like four or five hours of sleep, and with a bath and three hours' rest one can sup- port a strain for weeks which else would be impossible. The douche of cool or tepid water after the bath is wonderful for harden- ing and developing muscle, but can be used only a few minutes without injury. Spraying I the calf of the leg, the abdomen, the hips, and the chest, will strengthen and render the figure of wiry hardihood, with due care on other points. A gentle douche and spraying of the bosom is the only means to bo recom- mended to increase the bust. A MAN'S OPINION OF WOMAN. A man's opinion of woman (writes a corre- spondent) is always curious. I asked one the other day if a WOMAN in front of me, whom 1 had been admiring, was not what I call a piettv woman, lie said "No," and when 1^ bim WHY HJ ANS';E;ED NIE'LNS: "She is not pretty because her hair is ir^ disorder, and a man likes a womm. haic t0 look smooth when she is on the street, She is not pretty because there ira line of black under her eyes to enlarge them, and a man likes a woman to have a clean face. J She is not pretty, because she is con- scious that she is attracting attention, and a man likes a woman to be so ladylike on thj street that she passes by unnoticed. "She is not pretty, because she doesn't walk well she minces one moment and trots the next, and a man likes to see a woman a little slow and dignified in her movements. She is not pretty, because her mouth is too big, and a man had rather have a woman with no mouth at all than one with one that seems adapted solely for eating purposes. "She is not pretty, because she is bad form, and if you were a man yoa would bav« seen that at once, and would have passed he« by as undesirable," PHYSICAL EDUCATION OF WOMFS I think every woman should learu to iiwim, to fence, and to hold her weight with her arms," says a distinguished member of thll medical faculty. "More strains probably occur from the inability of women to use the strength of their arms skilfully than from any other canie. Th., average boy can hang from a bar and lift his weight by bending his arms two or three times in succession, but you never find a girl, unless she has practised it, who is able to do this once. One of the most valuable exercises for the acquisition of grace .dexteritv, I and a fine carriage of the body is fencing, if one learns to use tbe foils with both right and left hands, and in this form of exercise girl. become graceful and skilful as rapidly as men. Horseback riding is less desirable for women, because of the unphysiological position in which she is forced by conventionality to sit. The saddle is ridiculously uncomfort4 able any way, and from its inability to be adjusted to either side of the horse, is responsible for many cases of spinal curva- ture. Some riding schools have introduced saddles for riding on both sides of the horse, and a girl who will learn to ride on either side at will will be a much more expert borsct woman, and the exercise will be in every way more beneficial and conducive to symmetrical development. No one exercise, however, eithel indoors or out, contributes more to the uni. form development of the muscles or is more conducive to health than swimming, and i( seems, in the face of all the need that may arise, almost a crime for a woman not t. learn." • THK ATHLETIC GIRL.

She is not necessarily brilliant, indeed sel- dom is, yet she always holds her own in society, not by storming at ite doors, but by her keen sense of the fitness of things. She understands the art of listening ta others. My lady always takes pleasure in introduc. ing people with like interests, not in keeping them apart that she may monopolise eaoh in turn; for to see others happy adds to her enjoyment. She meets newcomers in the church or at home half way, and does not forget facet when she meets them two days later. Her appointments are always met promptly, If impossible to meet the engagement she writes a note at once and explains, thereby saving much dfkeomfort and inconvenience. She never addresses her gentlemen acquaint tances by their first name that familiarity is reserved for him who has a deeper claim than mere acquaintance. She is well versed on the current topics of the day, and does not blunder through a con- versation with statements of which she knowi nothing.
