Oas Way to W?o Slumber.
Who is there who has sot at times car?
ried tho excitement of composition toe
far into thc quiet night, and then, when
prudence sont lum to bod, found sleep a
-shy visitant? The momentum of lils
brain work cannot easily bo checked;
thc blood which baa been culled thora
for thought making ic ma mn there, or,
more truly, continues to dow thither;
tho raso motor nerves, whose duty lt it
to regulato the blood current by expand
ing or contracting tho blood vessels, are
too tired to work automatically, and they
must be helped. Exercise that will dis
tribute the blood through tho body and
?o relieve the bruin, is now plainly indi
cated, and it will surprise tko brain weary
and sleepless niau tho first hmo hs trie*
tho following exercise to seo how quickly
the covcti-d bleep comes to him.
This is not a doctor's prescription, but
only an example of a simulo exercise up
plied to a definite end. With the clothe
removed lie on thc floor, back down,
placing tho artus np with the hand*
damped behind tho neck, and fastening
ibo feet down to the floor in any conve
nient way, risc to u silting posture und

but not in n burned manner. If this it
very easy, load your hands with a l?ghi
dumbbell or other weight.- William T.

In WW will omi the term of 100 year?
during which the cities of Boston and
Philadelphia liavo each enjoyed tho reve
nue from a bequest of $.">,000 made by
Benjamin Franklin. Tho money waa to
l>o loaned out to young married artificers,
and the trust haB I teen executed, rdt hough
tho lap;-o of the century requires a new
dlspositiou of I lie funds, lt is significant
that while in Boston the 1-5,000 ha?
grown to nearly $.'128,000, in Philadel
phia tho $ ?,000 hus become only $70,000,
mid that in !>oth cases tho amount is lea?
than Franklin estimated it should be.
But, as tho natural philosophers of
Franklin'? day generally fell short of th?
sago in ingenuity, so too tho successiva
boards of trustees have been far from
equal to him in business ability. It rs in
foresting to note, however, that thc twe
funds still exist, and that part of the
Boston reserve goes in the pnrchaso of s>
public recreation ground to be known aa

The Sport of Soul Killin*.
A gentleman stood in front of a fur
tier's store contemplating tho seal gar
ments that filled tho windows,
"I never see u seal coat,** he saki,
..that I mn not reminded of a heart
breaking day I passed among the sea)
Then be told of joining an expedition,
when ho was a young man, snd going
out for thc sport of seal killing. They
knocked tho pretty creatures on tho 1...id.
Tho seals are so tame, affectionate and
fearless, thut when the hunters landed
and came among them they crowded
round them like dogs, making their little,
friendly bark and fawning upon the mur
derous hands that proceeded, te stretch
them bloody corpses upon tho beach,
rim man related how sick at heart he
got; how hs tried to get away from this
massacre of the innocents, and to this day
a sealskin coat recalled bis wretched ex?
perience as a murdering criminal among
the seals.-New York Cor. Chicago

"lt is nonsense," said a chemist, "to

which, taken in larger doses, would pro
