DREAMS GO BY CONTRARIES.
Experiment Made Cpou a French Physi
ologist While Asleep.
From time immemorial dreams have been
tbe wonderland of waking hours. Hope and
fear have wrought them into their own fab
ric. Superstition boa seized upon them and
worked up a curious ritual of '.'dreams that
go by contraries," of "dreams of the morning
light," of dreams with significances, some of
which seem natural enough, while to a few of
those apparently most arbitrary, sclenceher
self hus offered a certain amount of explana
tion. Dreaming is an experience which may. be
called common to humanity, though it varies
so widely in differeut individuals that, in a
few exceptional cases, it is absolutely un
known. A French physiologic caused many
curious experiments to be made on himself
during sleep. These experiments took the
form of trilling physical sensations, which
produced almost invariubly a wonderfully ex
aggerated effect on the sleeping miud. Thiu
a feather tickling the lips was converted into
the horrible putuilinieut of a mask of pitch
being applied to the face. A bottle of cau de
cologne held to his nose sent bun into a dream
of a perfumer's shop in Cairo. A pinch on
the neck recalled the days of his boyhood and
the old family physician applying a blister to
Scientific writers admit that there is a type
of dream in which coming physical disease or
disaster is bliudowed forlh some I odily sen
sation, perhaps too slight to be noticed by the
subject when uwako, yet contriving to im
press itself in some symbolic form on the
sleeping mind. Tho more striking instance
of this sort may serve to expluiu how, in
some lesser degree, certain syniboU, are likely
to attach tli 'involves to certain painful sensa
tions or conditions, until at last they arc
finally accepted as mysterious presages of
Conrad Gcsnor, the- eminent naturalist,
dreamed that he was bitten on the left side
by a venomous serpent. In a short tune a
severe carbuncle appeared on the very spot,
terminating his life iu the space of three days.
It is a most singular fact that under certain
combined conditions of fatigue, discomfort
and malaria, whole bodies of men such as
companies of soldiers have been seized by
the same terrific dream, and have awakened
simultaueou.'ily, shrieking with terror. Such
an instance is reluted by Laurent, when after
a forced march, HOO French soldiers were
packed in a ruined Calabrian monastery
which could ill accommodate half that
at midnight frightful cries issued from
every corner of the building as frightened
men rushed from It, each declaring that it
was the abode of the evil one that they had
seen him, in the form of a big black dog, who
threw himself ujxiu their breasts for an in
stunt aud then disapjieared. The men were
persuaded to return to the same shelter on
the next night, their officers promising to
keep watch beside them. Shortly after mid
night the some scene was re-enacted the
same cries, the some flight, as the soldieii
rushed forth in a body to escape the suffo
cating embrace of the black dog. The wake

A Cloture Silhouette.
Treasury clerks in Washington are being
treated to a free exhibition of high art on ths
walls of one of the corridors, the product of
chance. Of lute workmen have been kept
busy ou the walls, scraping off the old point,
filling up the holes with putty and repainting
again. One of the men at work on a panel
of wall opposite tbe office of tbe fourth au
ditor in tho first floor, west wing, happened
to scrape the old paint in such a way that the
uncovered portion made a perfect silhouette
of a woman's head, with tho face- turned to
ward the ceiling. Tbe patch is long and ir
regular in shape, and the resemblance to a
fae does not become apparent until the
uorthern half la covered by some means,
when the fuce is distinctly recognized iu a
The head is covered with a Jaunty, stylish
bonnet, of the genus known as "poke," and
tbe hair is coiled lu a bewitching knot at the
back of the bead, tbe features are beautiful,
pure and classic in their outlines, the nose
rather Grecian, aud the lips and chin deli
cately turned. Altogether, it is quite a sigh
producing countenance, and many a longing,
wistful glance bus been cast at this dull
brown patch, as though the gazers thought it
a pity that such a face should be but the
chance product of a wall scraper's knife.

of tbe patch is shown, a neatly booted foot

Lung- and Air.
Iu the course of twenty-four hours about
2,000 gallons of air pass through our lungs:
and we have seen that the air thus expelled
from them ts unfit to support life nay, even
that it is highly poisonous. It not only con
tains carbonic acid gas, but some other organic
matters that are much more deleterious. It
has been ascertained by direct experiment
that air containing respiratory impurity
measured by on addition of only two parts of
carbonic acid per 10,000 of air, is the limit of
such impurity that can be allowed to be pres
ent if we ore to remain in health. But in
order to attain this standard, no less than
8,000 cubic feet, or 10,000 gallons of air per
hour must be available, and well mixed with
the air breathed. In other words, by our
breathing we spoil 1:20 times more of air than
we can use in our lungs, and instead of only
2,000 gallons, we need 240.000 gallons of air
every day of our liven. Herald of Health.
Polly ata a Reformer.
Last summer there was a parrot on Third
avenue that used to stay out of doors the
greater part of the day. In the next house
was a scolding woman. She used to scold
every minute, either her husband, or tbe chil
dren, or tbe cat, and soon the parrot began U
mimic her. Between the two, the neighbor
nearly went distracted. But pretty soon the
woman stopped. She could hear the parrot
mocking her. Cries of "Stop your noise
"Shut up," "Mind me, sir 1" "IU strap you,'
made the air vocal, but as soon as Polly found
out tbat she was having the fun all to herself
she stopped, too. Kow, not a word of scold
ing is beard in the Third street bouse, and
Polly sings and whistles her old time ditties.
She is looked upon as an apostle of peac by
the neighbors. Detroit Froe Press. -

of money, but yet celling no betu r. My
attention was attracted by ihe cures said
to have been affected by B. B. B., and
commenced taking it merely as an exper

A VALUABLE EXPERIENCE.
One of the roost Worthy Men of the State
gives the Public the Benefit of some
Truths drawn from his Long Life.
1 was passing along a street iu Brooklyn re
ceDily when I aaw a .venerable and benevolent
looking old gentleman assisting a younger and
feeble man along tbe street. The scene was snch
an unusual one, tbat I volunteered my help to the
elderly man, and learned that be was the well
known doctor T. S. Wilcox, and tbat he was help
ing the young man, who was a consampUva, to an
Institution of which he bad charge. 1 accompa
nied them, assisting as beat I could, aad asked the
elderly gentleman some questions touching his
past history and bis rich experiences of life. He
replied (bat he t bought b con id -pot the matter
more .clearly to writing, ,and at my request gave
me the following statement:
'1 have been In the gei eral practice of medi
cine fat fifty years, beine now over seventy -years
of age, aud have charge of tba Sanitarian bocpital
located at No. 103 Lawrence street, Brooklyn. M.
T. Durina my lifetime of practice 1 have found
that more than one-third of all death arise from
consumption of the lungs or some lung trouble.
For a century doctors have tried to reach and over
come this direase. bnt have never succeeded. Few
people who have lang trouble know it; few peo
ple realise their danger until it is too late. After
a thorough trial of all known remedies,! have set
