' Boarders In the World. The people who always live in houses, and sleep on beds, and walk on pavements, and buy their food from butchers and bakers and grocers, are not the most blessed Inhabitants of this wide and various earth. The clr cumstnnces of their existence ore too mathematical nnd secure for contentment. They live at second or third hand. They are boarders In the world. Everything Is done for them by somebody else.?Henry Vnn Dyke. ) Hunger May Cause Insomnia. If you are suffering from Insomnia, , It may be that you have not eaten enough, says n medical authority. A moderate bite before retiring means that the blood will be driven from the brain to the stomach, and that makes for sleep. What you have heard about sleepless nights following Welsh rabbit must not drive you to the other eytreme and impel you to bed with an mpty stomach.
