“During sleep.” says an authority on
mental subjects, "the workings of the
uilnd are uuder no control, and yet It
seems to have a wonderful faculty of
building up and arranging scenes and
Incidents. | remember once having n
vivid dream of going Into a house the j
furniture and Inmates of which be
longed to the middle ages. So clear
was the dream that 1 had no diffi
culty In recalling It. and then as I
went over each detail of dress, armor.
Jewelry, ornaments and other objects
seen In my vision I realized that every
thing 1 had behold was historically
accurate—that Is to say. that probably
In a fraction of a second my mtnd had
conjured up a scene to construct
which, with the same faithfulness to
detail, while awake would have taken
me several hours."
The Us* of Condiments.
In an article on the use of condl
menta the Loudon Lancet, the fore
most Hrltlsb medical publication, says:
"The clnssle experiments of Pawlow
have shown how Important Is the role
of the condiments In diet, how It Is
they Improve appetite ntul Increase di
gestive power. Mustard, pepper and
salt, used, of course. In sensible
amounts, assist ttie appetite, give a
zest to food ami partly by reflex action
as well as local uctlon stimulate the
How of digestive Julses and Insure
healthy nsslndla .Ion. Even vinegar Is
known to buve a softening effect on
tough libers, and hence Its use la Just!
fled In so tnnny Instances.”

Wheat Doe* Not Grow Wild.
The existence of names for wheat In
the most ancient languages confirms
the evldouce of Its great antiquity and
of Its cultivation In the moro temper
ate parts of Europe, Asia und Africa.
I'rom tho evidence adduced by bota
nists of high standing It seems highly
impnilmble that wheat has ever been
found growing persistently In n wild
state, although It has often been as
serted by poets, travelers and histo
rians. In tho "Odyssey,” for example,
we are told that wheat formerly grew
In Sicily without the aid of man. Dio
dorus repents the tradition that Osiris
found wheat and barley growing pro
mlscuotialy In Palestine, but neither
this nor other reputed discoveries of
wheat growing wild seem at all cred
ible, aeelng thnt It docs not appear to
be endowed with tho power of per

tip no less than seventy Kotmitt sol

The Japanese believe In more myth
ical creatures thnn any Other people on
the globe, civilized or savage. Among
them are mythical animals without
nny remarkable peculiarities of con
formation. but gifted with supernat
ural attributes, midi us a tiger which
Is sold to llvo to bo a thousand years
old and to turn as white as a polar
bear. They also believe In n multitude
of animals distinguished mainly by
their size or by the multiplication of
their members. Among these are ser
pents 800 feet long am! large enough
to swnllow on elephant, foxos with
eight legs, monkeys with four ears,
fishes with ton heads attached to one
