RICHMOND DAILY PALLADIUM. FRIDAY, JANUARY 8, 1904.
TOO. Summoning Sleep. At all times a perfect mob of ideas anil words stands at the gate leading in to the mind, trying to get in. While we wake aud are sane, says a writer in Everybody's Magazine, there is some thing that stands at this gate and lets in only the sensible ideas and the words that have relation to the subject in hand. All the others it keeps shoot ing away with: "Get back there! Goon away!" It is this inhibitive faculty that- keeps us sane. But in order to rtach the general paralysis of sleep we have to pass through a preliminary stage wherein we are as foolish as any lunatic. When the sentinel at the gate of the mind goes off duty for the night the mob of "irrational ideas and words comes trooping in. and so when I would court sleep I deliberately open the door of my mind to the rabble, turning loose upon it a troupe of unrelated words and phrases. For some reasoror other I find that the vocable "abracada bra" is a good one to start off with. Often a word or sentence will repeat it self with increasing rapidity and shall I say loudness? until it is all a jumble which breaks up simultaneously with the disintegration of the colored pat tern before my closed eyes. Profiles. It is said that the American woman's profile is the finest in the world; that it Is the most clear cut and finely modeled of any other type. Generalities like this are hard to prove. It cannot be denied that some of the finest profiles in the history of feminine beauty are to be found in America, but whether the av erage is markedly higher in this coun try than anywhere else is an open question. But the ordeal is a trying one to any woman when it comes to a faith ful delineation of her profile in shadow. It is a finely molded face indeed which looks well in a shadow picture seen sideways. If the nose turns up the least bit in real life it is sure to point skyward in a silhouette. If that organ is even a trifle above the usual size it will appear huge in a shadow profile. A projecting upper lip or a projecting under lip becomes a positive deformity in a silhouette, no matter how slight it may be In the original. Atlanta Jour nal. Head Hunters. Head hunters is the name given to the professional assassins of the Solo mon islands. The vocation of these men is to procure the heads of those whom they are hired to murder or to sell the victims for sacrificial purposes. Sometimes the enemies of a man offer a large sum to be paid in the native shell money for the head, which will be a proof of deaths and the head hunter, with cold blooded and unscrupulous methods, lays his plans. Frequently great caution is neces sary. The intending murderer will worm his way into the friendship of his victim, and a long period may elapse before the opportunity will ar rive for the fatal stroke. It may thus happen that the murdered man's death will have been compassed by one whom he has regarded as the closest and most loving of intimates. Surely this i3 the most hateful of all professions fol lowed for the sake of gain. A Prince Edward Island Legend. There is a delightful legend among the people of; Point Prim to the effect that when the English attacked the French fort at that place a chain ball from one of the attacking vessels cut. the steeple from the old church located i on the very point. In falling it toppled over the promontory, and carried the bell which it contained into the sea. Dwellers along the point affirm that from time to time the sound of that bell comes over the waters at eventide and that its phantom tone is ever a warning of a fierce storm or some im minent danger to those who make their living by the spoils of the ocean. Don ahoe's Magazine. Bone Felon. A physician of large practice says he has found an egg the most efficacious cure for a bone felon. He uses it in this fashion: Take a fresh egg and crack the larger end, making a hole just big enough to admit the thumb or finger and forcing it into the egg a3 far as possible without further rupture of, the shell. Wipe off the egg that runs out, bind a handkerchief or soft cloth over all and let the finger remain over night. Generally the felon is cured; if not, an other application finishes it. Enjoying: the Sport. Terkius," languidly called Fweddy. "come and take this beastly thing off the hook!" While hi man disengaged the fish from the Look and put on a fresh bait Fweddy yawned dismally. "That's what makes fishing such a boab." he said. "Once in awhile you catch one of the slippery things, don't you know." Stray Stories. A Fa ml silted Man.

"This paper says massage reduces the chin." "Yes; perhaps so." replied Ilenpeck "perhaps so, but she's never let me try it." Houston Post. A Fashionable Woman's Confenslo.n. Nobody finds it more difficult to spare time for reading than the very idle, yet every woman in society religiously or ders every new book from her library,1 even though she sends most of them back without having even cut the leaves. If It Is a book every one is talking about she skims through the opening chapters, dismissing the vol ume with a single observation at a din ner party and forgetting everything about it a month after she has returned it. Most of us remember the books of our youth, but If any one were to ask me the titles of the novels I. read a couple of years ago no definite impres sion would be aroused.
