Tbero can ba no doubt that people who
walk in their sleep are not desirable guests
to have ia a bearding home. They are lia?
ble to create s'.rango confusions and disa
greeable dilemmas. Up ou Sutler street is
a large domestic hotel, where families and
single j'c'Ople are accommodated with all the
comforts of home. Under these circum?
stances it is generally full of people. Young
married people aro especially glad to Gud in
wui-u au establishment the conveniences of
priv le life without the trouble and worry
of house keeping, and bald-beaded, middle
aged gentlemen, who, in their'baste to-ac?
cumulate fortunes, have put off marrying
until it is too lato to wed, gravitate to such
places as inevitably as tue needle turns to
the north. The house in question was full
of such peoplo. But particularly noticeable
among them were a blushing young bride,
whose beauty and gtace was the theme of
every tongue, and a stont, red-faced dealer
in old iron, whoso sleek and shining ap
pearacc9was only equalled by the smooth
end poiiihed Eurface of his hairless head.
[ndeed.it was a generally accepted tumor
about the house that hiB slick aud glisten?
ing cranium was the result of incessaut pol?
ishing witb a rod baudana handkerchief,
whtati, for time out of mind, had been re
garded aa a leading feature of his toilet,
i'o siy that tbis gentleman was niodent
would only partially convey an idea ot bis
rt-uiaika'de "backwatdno.i in corning for
ward" in tho presence of ladies. The
glances of feminine eyes would deepen the
carmine hue of his countenance until the
bloo i seemed re-idy to burst from his veius.
A o word nddress<d to him in the liquid
acceute which only fe>niiiiine voices can hf
BUtna would cause evory nerve of his bidy
to l hi ill with embairaesment.
Imagine the consternation of this genile
t;:i?i when on returning late from his c'ub
one nigh'- ho found bis aparlment occupied
by :*. lady. Tho discovery was not made mi?
ni ho bad partially disrobed. Coming into
t he> room, the moon shining brightly through
the window, he begun to throw off his
clothe? without lighting tbo gas. When bis
coat, vest, aud shops were removed, and a
woolen nightcap drawn comfortably over his
head, his suspenders dangling gracefully
frooi bis waistband to his heels, and when
in tbe act of drawing off his trcuser3, ho was
interrupted by a gentle voie-i from the bed,
"fs that you, dear?"
Tho horror of the situation rose vividly be?
fore his eyes. It was as if a lightning shock
had transfixed him. His faet seemed glued
to tbe floor. If he had had any hair on his
h< ad it would have, risen on end. But the
blocd, wbioh in tho moment of his over?
whelming u?tonishment had receded to his
heart, now rushed furiously through his
veins and seemed to concentrate in a globe
of burning red in tho head, from which the
disheveled nightcap had fallen.
"Are you coming to bed, dear?" came
again the- same gentle voice.
This Wits loo much. With a bound like a
panther the gentleman leaped to the eofa,
and wheeling it from the coroer sprang be
The moon pairing a fliod of light through
;ho window seemed to havecoucentrated all
its rays on that particular corner. It was
lit up with the brightness of day. The lady
saw tho crouching ligure, and noted tbe
obese und ungaiuly foim. It was not her
hu=band. Visions of robbers, murderers,
and thieves passed through her mind witb
tho rapidity of lightning. With a bound, as
if upraised by a galvanic shock, she sat up
in bed. Then with a shriek as if all the
steam calliopies in tho country bad been
combined in one fearful diapsaon, she gave
voice to her alarm. The noise of that awful
shriek drove out of (he man's heart his first
alarm, and replaced it with another lright
still more intense.
"For heaven's sake, woman, be quiet!"
ho cried from his crouching place in the
The lady only shrieked the louder. From
flight the man was rapidly passing into a
conditiou of distracted courage.
"Be quiet. I tell you I"
"Oh, sir, for pity's sake don't kill me!"
"Kill yon, indeed ! Confound it, I'm not
going to hurt you. But get out of here!"
Tbis confirmed her worst apprehensions.
A burglar had invaded her room. She
would have fled, but the door was locked,
and her attire was not fitted for a prome?
nade through the streets.
But she could yell, and she did. A suc?
cession cf screams filled the room that would
have wakened the dead. Tbey roused the
house, and the halls rapidly filled with
: :.-iuh!ened people. Among them came the
husband of the rosy bi-ide. He had come
home late, and not iindiDg his spouse asleep,
as he expected to, concluded she was visit?
ing pome lady friends, and quietly tumbled
himself into bed and went to s eep. The
serearrs of the alarmed lady had even pene
t rated hi? dormant, sens??, and he came rush?
ing out with the rest.
"Ob, heavens, save me," again came the
alarmed entrea'y from the bachelor's room.
"That's my wile's voice," he shouted, and
i his streng shoulders carried the door from
I its binges. The sight that met the startled
gtoup of people crowding into the room was
I so ludicrous and abiurd that in spite ofsym
j pathy for the terror-stricken lady they gave
I way to uncontrollable laughter. Thefiight
j ened bachelor bad wedged himself between
! the wall and the soft until be looked as flat
I as a i ancake. Occasionally be glanced fu -
I tively over tbe back of it, and then sunk
I with a groan. The lady was too busy
screaming to think of anything else until her
husband's indignant inquiry. "What the
mischief are you doing here?" brought her
in some degree to her senses.
''Ob, Charley, there's a burglar in the
'"I'm net a burglai!" ciird a smothered
voice from behind the sofa. "This is my
room, and I came home to night and found :
a woman in it."
These hysterical explanations tended in
no degree to allay tbe amusement cf the
boarders. But finally an understanding was 1
reached. The lady was a sleep walker, and
in this condition bad wandered into tbe
room and gooe to bed.?Alta Californian.
A Lovely Complexion.
"What a lovely complexion," wo cfien
hear persons say. "I wonder what she does
for it ?" lu every case the purity and real
lovel ioeps of the complexion depends upon
tbe blood. Those wbo have sallow, blotchy
faces may make their t-kin s-mooih and
healthy by lakinir enough of I?r. Pierce'e
