BY MARK TWAIN.
It v:is summer time ami twilirrlit.
We wfiv sit tins; on 'l lie j.ou-li of the
farm lumsc, on the summit of the
hill, :inl "Aunt K-u-hel was sitting
res'fi-tlully lielow our level, on the
steps for she was our servant, and
colored. She was of mighty frame
and stature; she wjm sixly years old,
but her eyes were undiiiinietl and
her strength unabated. She was a
cheerful, hearty sonl, and it was no
more trouble for her to laugh than it
was fora bird to sing. She was un
der fire, now, as usual when the day
was done. 1 lint is to say, she was
being chaffed withont mere, and
was enjoviiifj- it.- She would let off
peal after jieal of laughter, and ilien
sit with her faee in her hands and
shake with throes of enjoyment
which she could no longer get
breath enough to express. At such
a moment as this a thought occurred
to me, and I said:
"Aunt Rachel, how is it that yon
have lived sixty years and never had
She stopped quaking. She paused,
and there was a moment of silence.
She turned her face over her shoul-
ler toward me, and said, without
even a smile in her voice :
"Mislo C , is you in 'arnest?"
It. surprised me a good deal; ajid
it sobered my manner and my speech,
too. I said :
"Why, I thought that is, I meant
why, you can't have had any trou
ble. 1 never heard you sigh, and
never seen your eye when there
wasn't a laugh in it."
She faced fairly around now, and
was full of earnestness.
"lias I had any trouble? Slisto
C , l's Vwine to tell vou, den I
leave it to you. I was, born down
'mongst de slaves I knows all 'bout
slavery, Vase I been one of 'em my
own se'f. Well, sah, my ole man
dat's my husban' he was lovin' and
kind to me, jist as kind as you is to
yo' own wife. Aud we had chil'en,
and we loved dein chil'en jist the
same as yon loves yo' chil'en. ' Dey
was black, but de .Lord can't make
no chil'en so black but what dey
mother loves 'em and would'nt give
'em np, no, not for any thing dat's in
dis whole world.
"Well, sah, I was raised in ole Fo'
ginny, but my mother was raised in
Maryland; an' my soul, she was tnr
rible when she'd git started! My
lan'! but she'd make de fur fl v ! Wen
she'd git into dem tantrums, she al
ways had one word dat she said.
She'd straighten Tierse'f up an' put
her fists in her hips an' say, "I want
you to undeistan' dat I wa'nt bawn
in de mash to fool' by trash ! I is one
o' de ole blue lien's chickens, I is!"
'Case you see, dat's what folks dat's
bawn in Maryland calls deyselves,
an' dey's proud of it Well, dat was
her word. ' 1 don't ever forgit it, be
ca'se she said it one day, when my
little Henry tore his wrist' awful, an'
most busted his head, right up at de
toD of his forehead, an' de niggers
didn' fly aroun fas' enough to 'tend
to him. An' when dey talk' back at
her, she up an' says, 'Look a-heah!'
she says, 'I want you niggers to un
derstan' dat I wa'nt bawn in de
mash to be fool' by trash! Ps one o'
do ole blue hen's chicken, I is!' An'
den she clar' dat kitchen an' band
age' up de chile herse'f. So I says
dat word, too, when I'g riled. f
Well, by-em-by my ole mistis say
she's broke, an' she's got to sell all
de niggers on de place. An' when I
heah dat dey gwyne to sell us all off
at oction in Richmon', oh, de good
gracious! I know what dat mean!"
Aunt Rachel had gradually risen,
while she warmed to her subject,
and now she towered above us, black
against the stars.
"Dey put chains on us, an' put us
on a stan' as high as dis porch
twenty feet high an' all the people
stood aroun' crowds an' crowds.
An' dey'ed come up dar an' look at

Well, I thinks to myself, if my
little Henry ever got a chance to
run away, he'd make to de norf, of

whan de big othcers was, in de par

an toleem bout my Henry, dey alist
enin' to my troubles jist de same as
if was white folks; an I says, 'What
I come for is becase if he got away
and got up Norf whah yougemmen
comes from, yon might a seen him,
maybe, an could tell me so I could
fine him agin; he was very leetle,
an he had a skyar on his left wrist,
an at de top of his forehead. Den
dey look mournful, and degen'I say,
'Ilow long sence you lose him?' an I
say 'ihirteeii year.' Den de gen 1
say, 'He wouldn t be little no more,

I never thought of dat before! He
was only dat little feller to me vit,
I never thought bout him growin' up
an bein big. But I see.it den. None
of de gemir.en had run acrost him, so
dey couldnt do noftin for me. But
all dat time, do' I didn't know it,
my Henry was run off to de Norf
years an years, an he was a barber,
too, an work for hisself. An bymby,
when de waw come, he ups an he
says, 'l's done barberin, he says; 'Is
goin to fine my ole mammy, less'n
she's dead.' so he sole out an went to
whar dey was recruitin, and hired
hisself ont to de colonel for his ser
vant; an den he went all through de
battles every whar, huntiu for his ole
mammy; yes, indeedy, he'd hire fust
to one officer an den another, till
he ransacked de whole Souf; but
you see, I didnt know nuffin about
dis. How was I gwyne to know it?
Well, one night dey had a Dig so-
jer ball, de sojers dar at Newbern

on. Uey had era in my kitchen,
heaps o' times, kase it was so bigr.
Mine you, I was down on such do

cers, an it rasp' me to have dem
common sojers cavortin round my
kitchen like dat. But I always stood
round and kept things straight, I
did; an sometimes dey'd git my dan

SLEEP AND NO SLEEP.
It was in Casa Guidi, in the 'City
of Florence, that I was first led by a
singular experience ' to study the
phenomena of sleep, or rather of no
It was Sunday night; after a day
not marked by any special excite
ment, I went "to bed expecting to
sleep as soundly as usual. Mindight
came, and the small hours grew larg
er, and I was still wide awake. The
associations of the room and the
house thronged me. Mis. Janison had
W'ritten some of her delightful poems
on the very table near my bed. Mrs.
Browning had made the "house clas
sic and. memorable bv giving its
name to her most favorable poem,
for in this palace she wrote and died ;
and, over the door, the Florentines
have placed a tablet to her memory.
J ust across the way is the gate of
the Pitti Palace, and thBre are
shrined the loveliest work of art.
Aud so, with the thoughts that
had been going on here, aud
with other thoughts that crossed
the sea the night wore away and
morning came, but not a wink of
sleep. Monday was spent as usual
visiting the galleries and churches.
aud when night came, I retired
again and arose the next morning
without a moment of sleep. And
now I had mc to Dr. Wilson and
told him my simple story, th-ttl was
quite well, but had forgotten how to
get asleep ! Under his care tli
third time brought a little sleep.
but it was six mouths before normal
sleep became my habitual enjoy
ment. Since, and by that Florence
experience, 1 have learned that tood
and exercise and phvsic are not more
important for life and" health than
sleep. It is a religions duty to
sleep, and to sleep enough ; and h
who does not, may be sure that h
is breaking the tiixth Commandment,
which requireth the lawful eiideav
ors to preserve oar own Life, as well
as lives of others.
There is scarcely a better health
meter for men who think much, than
this. Hard mental work is begin
ning when it interferes with sleep.
and he who plies his brain wi.Ui eve
so much energy eight or ten hours
a day, and prays ami iilays five or
six, and sleeps seven or eight, will
never die of overwork. But he
roust make a business of it. Brain
work, good exercise in the open air,
culture of the sonL social relaxation
and sleep these are tbe coiwstitu
ents of good living, aud they will
be attended by health, wealth, use
fulness aud happiness. If anything
else is wanting, it will be added
The old theory was that sleep is
induced by pressure of blood on the
brain, liecause the stupor of apo
plexy follows congestion of the
brain, it was held that sleep was
somewhat like an incipient disease
very stupid theory, for so far
from being like disease, is "the
sweet restorer of the waste that
bramwork makes. Congestion is
imminent when the brain is pressed
hard with blood, aud it is doing
more than its duty, lint when tbe
brain has been laid bare by remov
ing a portion of the skull o a living
animal, it is obvious to the eye that
as sleep comes, the brain occupies
less sleep than before, and as the an
imal awakes, the brain expands and
fills the cavity again. sometimes,
on rising suddenly m bed trom s
sound sleep, one is dizzy or light
headed, and that is because the blood
has not had time to gain its normal
circulation in the upper story. And
it is not well to spring up quickly on
waking; take things moderately,
then, as at all times.
Thus we see the necessity of sleep,
that the waste of the whole nevous
system, occasioned by the wear and
tear of mental and physical labor
through the day, "may be repaired.
You cannot make machinery out of
the hardest steel and of the most
polished surface that will not wear
out or break down. Add all the
machinery on earth combined would
not show workmanship so delicate,
and nmshed, and nttea to such ex
quisite service as the body and mind
of a man. Even the muscular sys
tem of a horse gives out wh;n iest
is denied. We are told the Lord
taketh riot pleasure in tie legs of a
man, but when a man -'oes not pride
himself on his powers oi waiaung,
and attempts nedless and foolish
experiments, 'he result uniformly
proves that -e lws of nature are
the laws of God. Their violation by
a -nrofeFBional walker is wrong, and
they v ho abet him, or bet on him, are
partners of nts riu,
And If the calves of the legs need
rest, and the hamal or porter who
carries a thousand pounds on his
back must sleep, and sleep enough,
or die, much more must the braiu
worker sleep, soundly and long, or
be will fly off the handle. It has
been publicly stated that ten bank
presidents in this city were killed
by the commercial crash of 1857.
Not one of them would have died
of that disaster had he given ten
hours a day to business and eight
to sleep. I do not fciipw wiat
Shakespeare meant when ho wrote
that "sleep knits up the reveled
sleeve of care;" but I well know, by
long experiment, that when care has
wasted and unravelled the web of
life, so that the man is falling into
sixes and sevens, like an old stock
ing or knitted sleeve, then kind sleep
comes to his aid, knits it all up again,
and makes him as good as new.
The victims of no sleep from our
banks and stores, go w audering over
Europe like the spirits of the gos
pels, seeking rest and finding none,
because they hasted to be rich, and
would not, and then could not, sleep.
Prince Albert, that model prince
consort, worth any dozen kiugs of
the common herd, and gave a writ
ten certificate to the value of a re
cipe, for going to sleep, of which a
man claimed to be the discoverer.
But it was in use long before "His
Royal Highness" was dreamed of,
and is of no great value. The only
directions worth repeating are to
"stop thinking," and in order to do
tn&inioBi aimcuu oi an tor a nuun
ing man so do, headwork and hand
work must be suspended at an earlv
hour, the mind relieved by such
light employment ai will divert
thought from the serious business of
the day, and the nervous system
will then be calmed and soothed, so
as to induce that peace which fore
tells sleep. The devices are many
and curious to win this boon. But
they all amount to tbe same thing
the diversion of thought from any
subject that excites mental effort.
Hunger and cold are unfavorable to
sleep. It is not so unwholesome as
many suppose, to go to bed after a
good supper. The sleep of infancy
always follows it, - All dumb anu
mals cat aud then sleep. Reason,
forbid" gluttony, and reason "also
forbids going to bed with a stomach
craving food. Keep the body warn
and head uncovered, so that the
blood may be tempted away from
the brain, and not into it.
Daniel Webster said he bad a
great talent for sleeping. Mr. Pierce,
when ke was President of the Unite!
States, said -that, distracting business
often engaged him until midnight,
but when he laid his head on his
pillow he went instantly to sleep and
did JuOit wake umil roused by the
seOjtfjUit tat eight in the morning.
John Qr-iflcy Adams never went td
sleep at nigli-t jvithout first repeat
ing the chiLdB -prayer "Now I lay
me down," &c. An4 Po rational
being ought to close Lis.yes ?n sleep
without it, or something like it, A
good digestion, peace of conscience
and a cheerful mind, make a better
night-cap than pills or toddy.
It would be too long to relate all
the uses to which elephants are ap
plied in Burmah. Let ns watch
them at work among the wood
yards, where the trunks of the tick
wood trees, which come floating
dtfirn the river, are piled. Every
WA4-kifl elephant is mounted by a

much faster than they fw be dis
posed of in tHe saw mills, and they
accumulate in vast quantities along
the bank. It is necessary, therefore,
to drag the trees out of the water,
and arrange them in piles until such
a lime as they can be cut np. There
are only three sorts of piles, vary
ing with the sizes of the trees. First
an elefitaijt jq he water clears the
logs from the Ase apd ranges them
one by one upon the river tiaak. He
carefully examines the chaos of logs
and proceeds with tusk and trunk to
disengage th) tree he has. selected,
and which he intends to carry to
land. As soon as the tree is placejj
on the bank another elephant is har
nessed to it and draws it to the
wood-yard, where he leaves it. Two
other elephants now come up, aud
one of them takes one end of the
log in his trunk and drags it to the
pile upon which, in view of its size,
it ought to be placed, while itsjeom
panion assists him by pushing the
log with all his might. As soon a
they reach the proper pile, the first
elephant lifts the top of the log up
on the pile, then he forms a kind of
ring around th log with his trunk,
while the other, with a vigorous
blow of the head. shoOts tha log in
to its place. The intelligence iis-
played by these animals ia aiu?c-st in

have believed it if we had not seeii
their movements as described above.
