"I once was asuferer from insomnia,"

mall villages of the state, ashesat talk

at an up town hotel. "but I got rid of the
"What did you take for itf'
"Tell uas about that, please."
"Well, you se, there was nothing the
autter with me only I couldn't sleep.
The doctor looked me over and said I
wasn't suffering from any disease that
he could detect, but all the same I could
get only a few catnaps every night, and
I felt that I would go crazy if such a con
dition of affairs continued much longer.
A wise friend of mine advised me to try
horseback exercise. Just at that tim a
man had brought t,, the village a string
of ponies from t -st. As the poti,,-s
were wild then .:e offered for sitle
cheap. I bought one. He was such a
sleepy looking aTnimal that we called him
Rip Van Winkle. After we knew him
better we dropped part of the name and
called him plain Rip. The first ride I
took on him furnisied excitement for t::c
whole village. Tvwo men helped n,,- to
saddle and mount him in the stable.
When the door was opened he shot out
into the street like a streak of lightning.
"Heran full agai ist the fence opposite
the stable and br.,ke several pickets.
Then he reared ul, on his hind le-s and
came near throwing me over backward.
Next he tried to stand on his head, butl
I yanked him bawk on his feet and drove
the spurs into h::n. He started to run
then, and I let him to as fast as he could
leg it until we got to the Methodit
church at the end of the street. A tem
perance meeting was being held in the
church and the door was open. ki·fore i
could stop the pony we were in !,
church and half way up the aisle. Woe.j
en screamed and fainted.
"Some of the men led Rip back into t':t
street. I didn't dare to get off his back.
When the men let go of the bridle he ht.
gan to buck, and for a few minutes I
thought my neck would be broken. Il
would go at a gallop when he went at
all, but he would stop now and then t,
indulge in some bucking. Prri utly it.
changed his tactics and went from one
street to another, across lots, jnmpin:
lances, turning up flower beds, damaginu
ardens and keeping me busy dodging
the branches of fruit trees. The next
street led to a turnpike, along which I
spurred him for miles until he was cov.
ered with foam and nearly tired out.
"He seemed to be docile when I got
him back to the stable. Next day. how
ever, he was nearly as bad as when I
Arst rode him, and every day for a fort
night I was obliged to race him along the
turnpike several miles. M. ! my! HA,
he did buck! I was solame at the end ol
two weeks that I could scarcely walk t.
my ofice, but I could sleep. A few min
utes after I got into bed at night I win
sleeping soundly, and I awoke every
morning thoroughly refreshed."
"Do you still iide the por v:-"
"*No. Jy the time I was cured of sleep
lessness I had broken Rip to ride, and I
sold him for double the sum I had paid
for him. My advice to anybody who it
suffering from insomnia is to get a buck.

no necks are broken, both man and pony
will be benefited by the treatment."

To remove the solid particles from un
der the lids, it is sufficient to pull the lid
away from the eye and to wipe the body
with a piece of moiht paper or thecorner
of a handkercinef. If it is under the up
per lid, grasp the lid firmly between the
thumb and finger, lift it from the eye
ball and draw it down over the lower
lid, and then allow it to slide slowly
back to its natural position. The foreign
body will be scraped off on the lashes.
S4lhe operation may be repeated several
times. Or lift the lid from the eyeball,
allow the tears to accumulate beneath
the lid and forcibly blow the nose. Or
place in the eye a few grains of flaxseed,
which, forming a mucilage, will prompt
ly bring relief. Or place across the up
per lid the point of a pencil or bodkin,
and turn the lid back over it. In this
way the foreign particle is brought into
distinct view and can be readily wiped

The women who, in spite of this, per

Not long ago at a celebrated criminal
trial a woman journalist presented her
self at the court asthe jutdcisry reporter

The police are said to have been aguast
when Mine. Severine drew forth her pad
and pencil and demanded admission to
the press tables. The guards were some
what taken aback, and, with a deplora
ble lack of French chivalry, wanted to
turn her away. But, by wit or wiles of
some sort, she gained her point and
cleared a pathway for all women report
ers who shall come after her.
Mme. Edmond Adam is another wowu
an journalist, perhaps the leading oue in
Paris. She is a politician, author and
editor. She has been honored by the mu
nicipality of Paris in having her name
given to one of the streets of the capital,
an honor rarely bestowed on a person
during his lifetime. It isn't much of a
street, to be sure, the Rue Juliette Lam
her but it is young and may grow some
day. Under Napoleon III Mme. Adam
had a salon in oppostIn to the imperial
governmc.t, and there she reigned. She
was young and handsome then, with soft,
pretty hair and bright blue eyes. She
was an intense republican and a great
friend of Garibaldi. At the close of the
Franco-Prussian war she had no one in
France to particularly oppose, so she se
lected Bismarck. Such phrases as these
have been attributed to her: "Bismarck
Sa.d met" "Bismarck was to have been
overthrown lir me!" "At last the czar
I condescends to follow my political views'"
She is a good speaker and can talk on au
most any subject. Her dinners are de
cidedly interesting. One-fourth of her
guests are usually officers of the French
army, another fourth is composed of po
ltical men, and the others are artists and1
literary people. The dinners are usually
followed by receptions, which are at
tended by cabinet ministers, deputies.
senators, diplomats and journalists.
There are, except on special occasions.
Mine. Severine is both more valiant
and more sentimental than Mine. Adam.

well known figure in Paris. She has
been nicknamed Mamselle Gavroche and

much given to literary floods of tear'.

in her mind, is represented by the prefect
of police, the detectives and the ge.
darmes, but never by the prisoners.
Gyp is another woman journalist, but
her name-Mme. de Martel-is bet: .r
known in connection with novels on Pa
risian high life and as author of a few
comedies, She is a noted contributor,
in a very light vein, to that lively publi
cation. La Vie Parisienne. Gyp is popu
lar, and, besides being a writer of great
talent, paints with success.
Perhaps the most successful newsa
per worsen in Paris are those who write
about the thing they know best--fash

what upon this territory, and altogether
woman's place in French journalism is
not all that could be desired.-New Yoru.
