The Mysteries of Sleep.
An uncommonly interesting article,
entitled "The Mysteries of Sleep," is
contributed to the current Harper's
Weekly by Dr. J. S. Christison, ol
Chicago, in which some o? the new
est as well as some of* the" most an;
cicnt theories regarding deep, ils
causes, and its essential nature, are
inZormingly set forth. Dr. Christi
son's conclusion seems ^to be that
science does not really know why wc
sleep, or what sleep actually is. There
are various theories-as thc physio
logical,~the chemical, the histol?gica:
?-all more or less contradictory, and
none entirely satisfying. One of thc
less widely known but most interest
ing theories attributes -sleep to ?
kind of auto-intoxication resulting
from acid waste products (chiefly
phosphoric acid) produced by the ac
tivity of the brain, and which are
thought to induce a suspended action
of the brain cells until more or less
elimination of these effete products
takes place. As an instauce of tb?

believed univ eight were lost. His

Anglesea is uno ot tho .favorite fish

Jersey coast, and has seldom had a
busier Sunday. Every excursion
train from Philadelphia and other
near by poiuts came down crowded
with visitors, most of whom intend
ed spending the day in fishing. The
weather in the morning Was ideal and
at the fishing boats look out Jarge
crowds to thc fishing; banks. After
noon, however, a brisk breeze sprung
and the captains of the small craft
hoisted sail and started for home.
Most of tho fleet got in without mis

siderable difficulty in clearing the
Turned Completely Over.
Tho two that got into trouble were
the sloop yatch Nora, which had on
board Captain Herbert Shivers, his
mute and 30 passengers, and the
sloop Alvin B., with a party of 12.
The Nora had gone.to thc fishing
hanks at Five Fathom Bank, about
ten miles out to sea, early in thc day.

Captain Shivers decided it was time
to make port and with the assistance
of a small gasoline eugine and a good
spread ol' canvas, he made good time
toward Anglesea. As I ho sloop bowl
ed along (lie wind was getting stiffer
and the sea rougher. Captain Shiv
ers, from long experience, knew how
treacherous is the Hereford har and
approached it with his usual caution.
The saud ?bst ruction is about a mile
from shore. Just as he was about to
go over it a heavy squall st ruck thc
Nora. Despite the efforts of the cap
tain thc craft keeled over and was
hit by a huge wave. The wind and
thc wave coming together was more
than tho yacht could stand and it
urned completely over, throwing the
32 occupants into thc sea. As the
boat turned over the mast snapped
like a reed. There was an agonizing
cry as the yacht turned turtle, which
was quickly silenced when nearly all
of the victime disappeared beneath
The'heavy sea probably was respon
sible for ilie saving ul: ll. of tho
survivors, as I lie waves wore so rough
that tho upturned yacht was tossed
about, thus uncovering the struggling
victims who were underneath. As
many as could (ried to reach tho
keel, bul il was a difficult matter, as
lhere was an indescribable tangle of
fishing nets, lines, baskets and sail.
There was no time lo help ono an
other, as il was all that the strug
gling mon could do to keep their
'icads above the water. One boy.
however, Frederick Fisher, aged j?
years, who was found struggling near
the boat, was lifted up on the up
turned keel by two men who had
light grips on the vessel. In the un
equal fight against the elements the
struggling men disappeared one by
one until only 23 were loft clinging to

As he came near he shouted encour
agement to the men clinging to the
Xora, and after some manoeuverinsr
managed to get duse to thc capsized
vessel. He was not a moment too
soon, for as he came within a boat's
length of thc Nora four men, weak
ened from exhaustion, lot go their

drawn out of the water. Then, at the
risk of their own lives, (he rcscurers

was perilous, as I he rough sea was
