A walk, a bath, a few gymnastic exercises, will often serve a useful purpose before retiring, but if they are undertaken in a fretful and im? patient spirit, and are accompanied by doubts of their effectiveness, and the insistent thought that sleep will not follow these or any other proced? ure, they are likely to accomplbdi lit-', tie. i The- best Immediate preparation for, sleep Is the confidence that one will sloop, ami Indifference if one does not.' This frame of mind Is best attained j by the habitual adoption of tho same attitude toward all the nftalrs of lifo.
