Brilliant Thoughts That H-ave Come
to Men of Genius in Their
Hours of Repose
There is a photograph, with which
most of us are no doubt familiar, of
Mark Twain at work in bed-holding
his writing pad on his knees, and
having the things he needed for his
labor disposed about on tables on
either side. But the idea of working
in bed was not original with Mark.
Many eminent men before him did
the same thing, a writer in the Phila
delphia Ledger says, Indeed, no, small
part of the world's: literary treasure
has been produced between the sheet,

tally active men of genius.
One of the hest known lines in Eng
Ilsh poetry carne into its author's head
when he was actually asleep. Whlile
visiting at Minto, Thomas Campbell
one evening went to bed early, with
his mind full of a new poem. About
2 o'clock in the morning he suddenly
awakened repeating, "Events to come
cast their shadows before." Itinging
the bell sharply, he summoned a ser
vant. The man found Campbell with
one foot in bed and one on the floor.
"Are you Ill, sire" he asked.
"I was never better in my life," sald
the poet. "Leave the candle and bring
1ne a Cup of teli."
Seizing his pen he put down the
happy thought, changing "events to
come" into "corning events," and over
the noninebrlat ing cuip, lie fin ished the
first driaft of "L~om-iiel's WVaraing."
