- Curiosities of Sleep.
There are some curitous ineidents on
record of sleeping and waking. In
Turkey, if a person happens to flll :
sleep in th aneighborhood of :t poppy
field, and the wind blows over towaris
him, he becomes gradu !!y narcoicis
e d, and woutld dlie if the country peopie,
who are well acquainted with ilt cir
Cuistance, did not bring himtn to the
next well or stretam, ad etmipty pitch
er after pitcher on his tihee and body.
br. Oppenhein, during his re.idence
in Turkey, owed his life to this simple
atnd eflicacious treatnent. Dr. (raves,
from whom this anecdote is eiuoted,
also reports the ease of a gentlettant.
thirty years of age, who fion long cot
titatied sleepiness, was rednced to a
bonplete living skeleton, utable to
stand on his legs. It was partly ow
ing to disease, but chiefly to the use
if tercury anad opinum, until at la4
unable to puisue his business, lie s:tk
