The Travels of an Eyelid.
The many thousands of miles which
a man unconsciously travels in his life
time, taking into consideration the
paces his footsteps measure as he
walks about each day, are enough to
make him ait down to rest for the re
mainder ot liis life.
Kut now a German scientist has
come forward with some still more
startling facts concerning the journeys
which our eyelid undertakes every
time it winks, and it Is not possible for
us to see, he pays, unles we wink.
"Unconsciously we wink once a second,
so that for the time we are awake dur
ing the day we voluntarily wink from
4S.GOO to 50,000 times and in a year
have moved our eyelids down and up
again no less than 18,250,000 times.
The distance that the eyelid travels in
its great speed is measured from a sin
gle involuntary wink.
This, the scientist says, is a quarter
of an inch both ways, the eyelid mov
ing equally up and down, so that, tak
ing the movement of both eyelids into
consideration, they cover some 50.0OO
inches in a daj The eyelids of a man
who has lived for 50 years will have
unconsciously traveled a third of the
way around the earth, or about 7.200
miles, a calculation sufficient in itself
to cause the victim of insomnia to fall
