Trevor. "it never entered my mind

said Hughie.

breakfast, the servant brought him a
card, on which was rotten, "*Mons:eur

himself: aud he told the servant to
show the visitor up.
An old gentleman with gold specta

and said, in a slight French accent,
"Have I the honor of addressing Mon

Hughie bowed.
"I have come from Baron Hausberg,"
he continued. "The baron-"
"I beg, sir, that you will offer him
my sincere apologies," said Hnghie.

me to bring you this letter;" and he

An Easy Cure for Sleeplessness.
I had frequently noticed that when
ngaged in deep thought, particularly
at night, there seemed to be somethng
like a compression of the eyelids, the
upper one, especially, and the eyes
themselves were apparently turned up
wards, as if looking in that direction.
This invaribly occurred, and the mo
I ment that. by an effort, I arrested the
Scourse of thought, and freed the mind
from the sabject with which it was en
Sgaged, the eyes resumed their natural
i position and the compression of the
lids ceasued. Now, it occurred to .zi
one night that I would not allow the
eyes to turn upwards, but keep them
determinedly in the opposite position,
as if looking down; and haviug done
so for a time, I found that the mind
did not revert to the thoughts with
which it had been occupied, and I soon
fell asleep I tried the plan again
with the same result; and after an ex
perince of two years. I can truly say
that, unless when something especially
annoying or worrying occurred, I have
always been able to go to sleep very
shortly after retiring to rest. There
;may occasionally be some difficulty in
seeping the eyes in the position I have
described; bus a determined effort to do
so is all that is required, ad I am er

key. where the ordinary use of tobacco
fully equals what we should term great
xecss, declare that this form of disease
of the eye is there utterly unknown.
There are nations where the smoking
of tobacco is ltgun by infants before
they cnu walk. and where the habit is
untiversal, and. were these wiseacres
correct in their etiology. the entire
adult population ought logically to be
bl nli.
"E nore disec omnes. Not a single
charge brought against tobacco has a
better basis. With groat wisdom it Is
remarked how much better health
some individual has attained since
ceaing to use tobacco. But any de
cisive change in long-continued habits
-even what are termed "good habits"
is oft-n temporar ly beneficial. The
great curative principle of change of ge is
what has betn successfully appealed to
here-the most powerful and. in fact,
broadly considered, tie only existing
curative principle.
"In estinmatin the true influence of
tobacco and its congeners, it is mani
festly unfair to consder individual in
stances of their use. Only by taking
masses of men who for years are under
comtrol as to their diets and habits,
and who. therefore, live upon equal
terms, can we approx mate a fa r ez
uo. And In tiis regard there eouhl be
no test more equitable than that made
by Sir John Sinclair, and recorded in,
his 'Code of Health' recently published.
In the pension hospitals of England,
:Sr John found one bhundred and fifty
men over eighty years of age. Fifteen
of them wreere over ninety, and four over
one hundred. These formed the rem
nant of the armles of EnglandL The
rest were dead, and of these survivors
all but two had been consumers of "the
weed" all their lives. It may be add.
ed that the use of tobacco by smoking
forms the most desirable DaraUtrptlc
for the dispeptic, as it decidely assists
digestion by stimulating the secretion
of the gastric juice. It appears to be
most useful to men of lymphatic tem
I perament, and to disagree most decid
