MANY AUTHORS COMPOSE IN BED
Seme of tine Best Ideas Come to Oae
Wfcile Half Awake.
Most people, If asked the question,
would say that "bed" was the place to
rest in, not to work. And though this
Is true of the great majority of people.
there Is still a decent modicum left
wno find "bed" a very congenial place
in which to do their work, or a great
part of it, and who, In fact, do not dis
guise the truth that they can work
there very effectively. e
This plan was followed by the great
poet Campbell, who tells us that he lay
awake thinking of his projected poem
"Lochlel," when there came Into his
mind, with other poetic thoughts, the
idea of the shadows in the room "show
ing up" as the day began to break, and
he at once jumped out of bed and wrote
down what has since become a world
wide proverb, "Coming events cast
their shadows before."
Many writers owe much of their sue
cess to.. clever plots and articles which
have been begun, worked out, and linal
ly set into proper form during the time
that their authors lay between the
blankets. The writings afterward have
often been merely mechanical, and
even much of that was done In bed; the
setting of the plot and the dialogue was
the chief thing, as most writers know
"I trust you'll excuse me," said a cel
ebrated doctor lately to a friend who
had called to see him early, and who,
on being asked to go up to his bed room,
found the physician still enjoying .the
comfort of the sheets. "Kindly sit
down, my boy, for a minute, till I've
done answering these letters'. I have
my letters brought up Immediately
when they arrive in the morning and
I go over them in bed and put down
the replies in pencil on the back of
them. Then when my secretary arrives
at 9 he has nothing to do but go and
answer them. As you know, I am kept
busy from 10 o'clock, when I first ap
pear downstairs, till late at night, and
thlo plan, you see, saves me nearly an
hour's work with him."
That students often "burn the mid
night oil" In bed is a fact commonly
known, but few are aware of the
length to which this is carried out, es
peclally in colleges. I know a college
in London where any night one could
find thirty or forty men all working in
bed, with note books, manuals, pencils
and all In full rig-oiit, many of them
having their writing desks before them
on the bed. The contrivances for turn
lng out the gas without getting out of
bed when work is done would do credit
to the Ingenuity of an Edison.
"And where did you ever find time to
get through your classical authors and
do your mathematical problems so thor
oughly as to gain distinction?" said I to
a London University man, who had
graduated a few years ago with dis
tingulshed honors. For I knew he had
worked hard at his own business all
the day from 9 till 5.
"In bed, old fellow, In bed!" said he.
I used to He awake in the morning for
an hour before getting up and employ
ed the time In thinking over the Eucli
dian 'riders' and 'conic' problems that
had. nuzzled me. Almost invariably I
worked Lthelr solution out in my brain
reaper or pencil while lying in
bed. And every night before I went to
sleep I went over so many dozen Greek
verbs and Latin annotations till they
were all just like the multiplication ta
ble to me."
There is another class of men who
work much in bed viz., the legal fra
ternity. Not very long ago a leading
Q. C. in an Important case only got his
hrlef delivered the night before the
case came on for trial at Manchester
isslzes, and yet, to everybody's aston
ishment, he showed next day a most
surprising grasp of the case, and dealt
so successfully with it and the wit
nesses engaged In It as to briug off his
client successfully. Asked as to how
he had been able "to master such an In
tricate brief In one night, the Q. C. re
plied: "Took It to bed with me and
Went over It this morning." Pearson's
It Is difficult to get people to under
stand that trees can die from drowning
just as animals can. Trees feed pri
marily by the roots, but there must be
a certain amount of oxygen in the soil
to enable them to make cse of the food.
Standing water prevents the action of
the life-giving oxygen. A Boston corre
spondent refers to two large horse
chestnuts which were moved last
spring with the greatest skill, but they
died. In the fall an examination was
made and the holes found to be full of
water within one foot of the surface
of the ground. The holes were really
flower pots without the necessary holes
in the bottom to allow the water to es
cape. There can be no better lesson
In gardening than to be continually re
membering why it is necessary to have
a hole in a flower pot. Mehan's Month
ly. Sparkling Atmosphere of Pekin.
A German diplomat is responsible for
the epigram: "You approach Pekin in
tears, but you leave It weeping." The
reason for this appears to be the pure
atmosphere. The quality of the air is
described as one continual exhilara
tion; "in winter, dry and sparkling, the
very champagne of atmospheric vint
ages; In spring and autumn, a delicious
blending of frost and sun." The keen
air braces the nerves like a tonic. They
admit, however, that summer is hot in
Pekin, but residents enjoy health and
physical comfort in the crisp Pekin air.
First Double-Decked English Ship.
The first double-decked ship built in

It was 1,000 tons burden, and cost 14,
000. a sum worth more in those days
than 120,000 uow. At that time 50 to
100 tons was the usual burden of mer

AN OVERWORKED PHRASE.
The Expression 'He Toole His Life la
"The expression 'he took his life in

It just shows the difference between

and the matter of confronting extraor

who grabs the bridle of a runaway
