It is better to go to sleep on tb right
side, for then the stomach le very much

In passing out by gravitation. ' If one'
goes to sleep on the left aide, the opera

contents te more like drawing .water

the body take its own position. U you

tive organs and that of the food, rest
ing on the great vein of the body near

the flow of the blood mora or less. If
the arrest k partial, the sleep is disturb
ed, and there are unpleasant dreams.
If the meal has been recent and hearty
the arrest is more decided; and the va
rious sensationssuch as falling over a

or other impeding danger, and the
desperate effort to get rid of it arouse
us, and send on the stagnating blood;
and we wake in a fright, or trembling,
or in perspiration, or feeling exhaus-J

the death of those of -whom it ia said,

"That thev were as well as ever they

of oVath to thoee who have gone to bed
to wake no more, we give merely as a
private opinion. The possibility of Its
truth is euough to deter any rational

Dumb animals sometimes set us good
examples. I will tell you a true story
of two horses.
In the town of Indianapolis, there
was a blind horse, who, one day last
summer, wandered into the river, and
then did not know now to get back tui
ary uuu. y fir t
Now, there was a good horse whom
me bovs called jjick, ana wno
graziug close by, when" he saw the
blind horse swimraing : round in the
river, and .trying in! vain to find the
trolid shore.' u i -'
Dick must have thought to himself,
"That iioor horse cau't- see, or he
would not act lu that strange way. 1
will call him ; perhaps he will mind
bo Diek leganlo neigh as loud as he
could ; but the blind horse, still was at
a loss to know which. way io turn.
Perhaps he was deaf as well as blind ;
for, though Dick would neigh quite
loud, tho poor blind horso still could
not tind his way out of the river.
Then Dick must have thought,
" That t oor horse will get tired by and
by. anu ink aud drown if I do not
Then Dick went down to the river,
and swam out to where the blind horse
was n touched noses, as much as to
say, Follow me;" and thon. guided
the blind horse safely to the shore.
This kind act was seen by a grvat
many people on the shore: aud they
rheerea loudly as Dick came np on the
bank with the blind horse behind him.
I hope you will he ready to help a
friend In need as poor Dick was. We
must learn to be kind to ou another,
for kind acts and kind fediugs will
make us happy. AWcr? -'

plf.i I was without wife or child to enl
cutnber my departure ; and, armed op-ij
lyiwith a portmauteaurtoaoe a -mmi
delightful jourBej of g io the charming
town of V .. . .......
Shortly after my arrival, whilst sit
ting at the window of my hotel, a man
pifesed by mi -very much" like myself,
thitj struck 'with the resemblance, T
rose, and, leaning forward, followed
him with my eyes.. .His drew bespoke
him an EugIishma.-He was tall r so'
was I. blim ; I was slim, u His eyes
wre blue, his skin talr, lu hair a deep
auburn, his nose aquiline. All this
crossiuir the road, howsvervand taking
the opposite pavattuSUkj: JChi enabled
me to get a clearer view of the man. I
ookifess I was much impressed with the
resemblance, and hardly liked it.: t The
: physiologist, I thought, may delight as
much as lie pleases In such a coinci
dence; for my part I object to being
tnade portion of any sort of phenome
non. JL had read of very, unpleasant
consequences following personal re
semblances, aad taTnesa hoped that
this individual, whom nature, short of
moulds at the time, had undoubtedly
cast in mine, would speedily clear the
nightxrhood of his presence. -
A week or two after this, in taking a
walk across a beautiful Jblt of adjacent
country I suddenly eucountered my
likeness, seated on a rustic bench, be
neath a tree, with his arm encircling
tlie waist of a very beautiful peasant
girt.; Her akin, of pure acd cream-
!;-. ;. aJu ntniiitfl with the
splendid luxuriance of black hair. Her
eyes nasnea upon. m as t ptueuu, snu
I lioticed her draw herself erect with
nipid hauteur, as if indignant or impa
tient of detection. The man by her
side, who would have passed very well
for me to any other person but my mo
ther and myself, still maintained his
carrooaing attitude. Hedid not conde
scend to raise his eyes to me as I pass
ed, but kept them fixed upon the face
of the girl, who, I could see, watched
m)B with a species of sullen : eagerness,
mM if wishintr me well out of sight.
VUs I passed them, I must confess of
having experienced a mamentary sen,
aation of envy of the man. Bince na
ture had put him in my skin, I thought
it I aeems only fair that I should put
myself in his shoes. For all I know. I
reflected, that beautiful peasant girl
might have been originally destined
for me ; but the intention of nature has
been defeated by her love of coinci
dence. I laughed at my thoughts as I
walked on, aud turning a corner, lost
sight of the lovers.
On reaching the bottom of the lane,
I found that f had fallen upon a cul-de
aoc.' : The passage terminated in a se
ries of fields, across which I could dis
cover no foot-path. I had no wish to
bet arrested for trespassing, so I decided
on returning the way I bad come.
" pn sightiug the bench, I found it was
deserted. I was not sorry. I would
hi no means have disliked another
peep at the beautiful brunette; but, at
tlie same time, I had no ambition to
inspire tneupie witn tne notion mat
I was watching them. . . 1 ' 1 f .
I had got to the top of the hill, and I
wls passing between a row f thick
bushes, making a sort of natural hedge
for a broad area of trees, like a gigantic
park, when I was suddenly startled by
a a report of a pistol discharged to my
left At the same moment I heard the
hollow sound of a ball striking my bat,
and that article of dress rolled on the
t looked around with a pale face.
Tne attack was horribly sudden. Who
InT the name of heaven, wanted my
life? For what crime was my blood
demanded? What had I done ? I saw
tlie blue smoke curling up from the
densest ' portion of the bushes, and
heard the crackling of the furae and
twigs . caused by the hasty flight of
I ricked up my hat. .The ball had
passed clean through it. Had it struck
two inches lwer, it would have enter
ed my skull.
I hastened toward the town, posses
sed with much the same sort of envia
ble feelings as you might imagine a
Tipperary landlord or agent would feel
who sees threats of his life carved on
every other tree. Bravery in a situa
tion of this sort w as quite out of the
question. Of what use is pluck when
you have to deal with invisible foes?
I might also confess to having broken
into downright flight as I neared the
town, so extremely anxious was I to
escape every sheltering bush, tree or
hedge In the neighborhood.
6u gainiug my hotel I began to re
flect on my narrow escape. I bad been
too trrarn cxeited to attach to ft the
significance it demanded. But the
hole in my hat conveyed 'the most
shudding information ou my. narrow
escape. Beyoud all reasonable doubt
my life within that hour had only been
worth two paltry inches. .
t'l repeated the question to myself:
"Who wants my life? And, if auy
body wants it, what are the claims?
What have I douo to merit assassina
tion?" Being wholly unable to an
swer these queries, I resolved to make
a ooufidant of my host, the hotel-keeper.
I called him into my room and
told him of what had happened. He
shrugged ids shoulders as he exclaim

" But," said I, shocked at his sang
froid, " I have not made love. Since I
have been here I am not conscious of
even having looked al a woman, much
less spoken to one."
" Then it is an enigma," he replied.

Tney bore tlie corpse, to an adjacent

easily anticipated.' The man who so
very closely resembled me at V ,
had seduced the betrothed of a laborer,
otie Theodore Vcrtot. This Theodore,
reckless now of life, and resolutely bent
oil vengeance, swore to kill her sedu

Hearing, however, that I was about

Such is the simple but tragical story.
My prototype, who had been the means
of twice imperiling my life, I have nev
crseen since. I confess to no wish to
see him. ' It Is bad enough to have to
Ijear the brunt of one's own follies; it
1s altogether miserable to stuTer for the
follies of others. Ever since the occur

Burying the I'anaptizfd.
Few persons, out of Englaud, arc
aware of the existence of laws forbid
ding tlie burial of unbaptized persons
in the cAwfcA-yard that is, in the
graveyards of the Church of England,
in the House of Commons a bill has
been introduced to abolish tlie laws and
to make the grounds accessible to all.
Mr. Morgan, who, introduced the bill,
grounded it chiefly ou the experience
of the rural districts, unprovided with
cemeteries. There the present state of
the law as to the burial of Dissenters in
tlie parish churchyards, caused much
religions animosity, and many scanda
lous scenes, some of which he de

of Livenwof among whom he lalxred,
but of the whole of Wales. The fune
ral procession was swelled by thou
sands of his poor country men, who
had walked, some of them, even thirty
miles, to be present at his burial; but
the incumbent of the parish where the
Interment was to be made, standing on
his strict legal rights, positively refused
to allow any expression of feeling on
the part of the multitude beyond what
was prescribed by tlie prayer book and
tlie singing of a hymn which he selected
himself. It was impossible to describe

thing had ' Occurred during the past
thirty years tending so much to widen
the broad breach between Churchmen
and Dissenter in that neighborhood
and to shake 16 its" foundations tlie kW
ready weak and tottering fabric of the
Church of England: Referring to other
incidents of less magnitude, but equal
ly painful, he described the case of a
man who died In September, 1863, in
one of the midland counties, who was
not only refused burial by tlie incum
bent, but was kept above ground four
teen days after ins aeatn, wnue tne
clergyman strove with his parishioners
and a neighboring clergyman who had
volunteered to perform the service iu
his stead. ' He also related a case of the
burial of twins shortly after birth. The
first born died before it could be baptiz
ed, but the second wa baptized before
death. . The infants were placed togeth

dered that two coffins sliould bo made,
and while the burial service was read
over one, the bearer of the other was
made to stand afar off, as unworthy the

The bill was referred to a select Com

they taught in childhood to use tlieir

use of the right' hand oidy for certain
