Why Do We Yawn?
There can be little doubt that one
of the objects of yawning is the ex
'reise of muclSIes which have been
for a long timie 1 quniescent and the
accelerit ion of the flow of blood and
lynph, which have in consequence
of thi:; liescence beco 1ime sluggiih;
hence its frequeicy af'teI one hms
reiai ned for some ti me in the same
position-for exaiple, when wak
ing in the morning. Co-operating
with th is cause is sleepiness and the
shallow breathing which it entails.
This factor, as well as muscle
quiescence, is apt to attend the
sense of boredom which one expe
riences in listening to a dull ser
mon; hence it is that the bored in
dividual is apt to yawn. As in the
case of sighing, the deep breath
which accompanies the act of yawn
ing cotmpensates for the shallow
breathing that is so apt to excite it.

A BATTLE OF HEROES
At Rooroy Fell Forever the Once In
vinciblo Spanish Infantry.
In 1643 the Spanish governor of
x the Netherlands, Francis of Mello,
besieged Rocroy, which is not far
r from the frontier of Flanders. The
army hastily sent up to relieve Ro
croy was commanded by the youth
ful Duke of Enghien, afterward
"the great Conde." He was but
s twenty-two and had with him as
monitor in war the aged and timid
. Marshal l'Hopital. Enghien had

Fearlessly he advanced his men
i. through a dangerous defile, where
es they might easily have been over
ic whelmed. Fearlessly he deployed
A under the eyes of the Spanish army,
I which stood in its slow, stolid way
waiting to be attacked. L'Hopital
held the right wing of the enemy in
check while Enghien routed their
.r left, and then with his light inov
t ing cavalry got around to their right
i wing and routed that also, thus re
lieving L'lopital, who was hard
pressed. Still there remained a com
pact center, a reserve of Spanish
infantry, the invincible soldiers who
for so long had triumphed on every
battlefield. Against these the im
t petuous Enghien hurled himselff,
and a battle of heroes raged. Thrice
the strong infantry of Spain dashed
a back the waves of fierce assault. At
the fourth rush of the gallant
e French tihey broke and gave. The
- great rock which had braved so
many storms tottered and fell. The
waves of the victorious attack came
o boiling and surging over the ruin.
I) Then fell forever the invincible
Spanish infantry, the terror of the
world. More than 100 years before
1 French courage had destroved the
belief in the unconquierable Sis.
Now Enighien had done the same
