The Fallacy of IXarly Rising.
Proverbs are responsible for a
reat deal of folly, and none perhaps
)r rnore mischief under the present
mditions of town life than those
'hich inculcate early rising as a
irtue. When the great majority

the cultivation of the soil, early
sing may have been conducive to
ealti and wealth, if not to wisdom,
ut even our early forefathers probaL
ly did no more than make a virtue
f iecessity. It is said to be natural 3
-that is, physiological-to rise early
md enjoy the beauties of the sun

bout the vivifying influence of the
in, and are toId to take example by
le birds of the air and beasts of the
eld, or so many of them as are not
octtrial in their habits. But as a
tatter of fact physiology, so far as
has anything to say on the subject
t all, is all against the early risiig
ieory. Physiological experiment
