Simply a Question of Will Power and
Ordinarily we do not sleep by acci
dent or haphazard. We simply resolve
to sleep, and self suggestion plays a
great part In the production of sleep.
We go through a variety of actions,
al suggestive of a change from our
normal waking condition. We un
dress; we place ourselves in a com
fortable position; we close our eyes;
we believe and expect we are going to
sleep, and the result is-sleep.
One of the great preventives of sleep
Is the fear of not sleeping. but a writer
in Harper's Bazar says that once this
fear Is broken down we sleep anyhow.
The insomniac worries about his in
soania. and this very worry deepens
the mischief; hence the sufferer should
suggest to himself again and again.
"If I sleep. A1l; If I don't sleep. I
wi at least gain rest by keeping my
mind calm and my body relaxed."
In a word. our chances of getting

HIS QUEST FOR A WiFE.
.ohn Nmwomb Was a Close Observer
and Was Hard to Suit.

Dr. Beadon, a former rector in El
tham, Kent. England. one Sunday1
preached from the text "Who art
thou"' After reading It he made a
ganse for the congregation to reflect
pon the words, when a man in miii
try dress who at that instant was
maching very sedately up the middle4
aisle of the church, supposing It a
estion addressed to him. replied. "I
am, sir, an officer of the Sixteenthj
regiment of foot on a recruiting party
here, and, haing brought my wife
and family with me, I am come to
church because I wished to be ac
quited with the neighboring clergy,
and gentry." This so deranged the
divine and astonished the congrega-.
tion that the sermon was concluded
with considerable difficulty.
Ringing For Gofer.
Anong the queer church customs in
Engand is the one observed at New
ark parish church, called ':!nging for
gofer." This custom, which has lasted
for over 300 years. arose through a
wealthy merchant named Gofer losing
melft one October night in the forest
that then surroned Newark. He
carried much money, and the forest
was Infested with thieves. Suddenly
he beard the sound of Newark bells
and was guided safely homne by their
music. To commemorate his escape
Gofer left a goodly sum for Newark

Legend of Its Adoption as an Emblem
by the Turke.
The crescent has been known since
time out of iemory. In ancient my
th-ooy It decorated the foreheads of
Diana and of .1starte. the Syrian Ve
nus. In the days of Rome's greatest
glory *he hitdles wore it as an orna

Since the foundation of Constanti
nople. the anciu:t Byzantium. It has
been the emubiem of the city and as
such adorna% Its walls and public build
ings. besides being stamped on Its
coins and postage. The legend which
accounts for Its universal adoption in
Turkey, and Constantinople in par
ticular. Is as follows:
Philip of macedon laid siege to the
city in the year 340 D. C. He chose a
night of unt:sual darkress for the pro

a cloud. In comme:ucratoan of this
providential deliverana e the crescent
was adopted :s the symbol of the city.

mentioned that it was the symbol of

Sink. In Water and Crumbles Into
Powder When Warmed.
All know that ordinary ice will float.
This relative lightness of ice with re
spect to water is due to expansiot. of N
the water at the moment of freezing.
If water is frozen under immense
pressure it seems that this expansion
is prei-ented and ice heavier than wa
ter is produced.
G. Tamnman has prepared this mnodl
fication, which he calls Ice Il., as
follows: ie compressed water to 3.000
kilograms (,G14 pounds) and cooled
It in solid carbon dioxide snow and
finally in liqnid air. Inder these con
ditlons a colorless, transparent Ice is
formed. It is much denser than ordi
nary ice and heavier than water: con
sequently it sinks when placed In wa:
ter. Ice III. is very unstable, and on
slight warming it swells out and
breaks up Into a dense white powder.
The volume of the resulting powder
is apparently four to eight times that
of the original ice. This powder form
ed by the breaking up of the dense [
form Is nothing more than ordinary
ice in the form of fine crystals, which.
of course, on further warming melt at
zero degrees centigrade.
Experiments on Ice III. show that it
is impossible to obtain it by separa
tion from water at atmospheric pres
sure and then suddenly cooling. There
would never be a possibility of this
unstable form of solid water being
formed in nature.-New York Tribune.
