Various Plans to Court Sleep Whou It Is S.iy. The Latest Solo 'tlflr Kvjdaii itlou of tho Cause of Insomnia, und How Re'resli *i>5 Sleep Tan Be Serured—Think of Old Dreams. lf any unusually acute inventor could tell us of an infallible contrivance lor going to sleep ju9t when wo wish to do bo there can be no doubt whatever of the substantial benefit which would thereby be secured for mankind. Somo fortunate individuals, like Napoleon I., can command sleep the moment they lay their heads on the pillows, others find themselves all through life sloep • ing the sleep of the just every night, without any difficulty being experi enced as to occasional wakefulness, ex cept when illness happens to inter The Duke of Wellington, who always slept 011 n camp bedstead, had a max im that when a man turned in bed it was time to turn out; and hero it may be remarked that great soldiers ap pear to bo peculiarly constituted in their power to summon sleep at will. Possibly this may bo duo to tho habits of discipline which they have learned. They say to their brains: "Go to Bleep." and at once tho word of com mand is obeyed. Insomnia, however, is an evil of civilization which is growing, and if the letter which a correspondent has addressed to a weekly contemporary is to be relied on a plan has aHast been hit upon to euro the malady and to se cure nature's sweet restorer at a mo ment's notice. We are all familiar with the stereotyped advice in cases of this kind to "turn tho pillow," to "think of something else," or to im agine and Count a number of mountain sheep going through a gate. Many a time and oft has the too-wakeful brain worker attompted to carry those and similar prescriptions into practice, usually with results disproportionate to the efforts involved. it may be said without much exag geration that the m: who can ffrst imagine a flock of sheep, then a half open gate, and then can force his hypothetical sheep to go through one by one without crowding or dodging or turning tail, is fit for treason, strategems or writing the sublimest poetry. He is no ordinary man, and it is for ordinary individuals that tho saving prescription is required. IVhat, then, does our latest savior of society precisely recommend? First of ail ho enters into a sort of philosophic al rationale of sleep and po sloop. "It is now, 1 beliove," lio writes, "gener . ally accepted that our conscious day light-tliiuking processes aro carried on in tho sinister lialf j)[ our brains"—why docs lie not say the left ltalT at onco?— "that is, in tho lobe which controls the action of tho right arm and log." Ho has thought and thought again of what uso "(lie dextor lia! f of the brain" could possibly bo, and he concludes that the right lobe is tho organ which is employed doing what is called "un conscious cerebration" in tablo : turn ings and other spiritualistic manifesta tions. Now, during sleep wo "unconscious ly cerebrate," which accounts for our dreams being of a character whicli tho correspondent only faintly describes when ho calls them fantastic, non-mor al and spritelike." Musing on these matters, lie camo to tho practical in ference that to bring back sleep when lost wo must quiot tho conscious, think ing and left side of our brains, and bring into'activity tho right sidealono. This sounds all very well, but it might turn out very dilHeult to split our brains into two halves and begin using the right side when wo want tho left to bo omployod. However, tho proof of this particular prescription of course lies in the question whether it really induces sleep or not. "Armed with this idea," says tho commendable experimental corre spondent, "the next time 1 found my self awakouing at two o'clock in the morning, instead of merely trying to bullish painful thoughts and ropoating, os wns my habit, that recommandable soporific, 'Paradise and tho Peri,' 1 re verted at onco to the dream from which 1 had awakonod and tried to go on with it. In a moment 1 wns asleep! And from that time tho experiment, , often rep uted, has hardly ever failed. Not seldom tho result Is sudden us the fall of a curtain, and seems like a jcharm." o. It would bo more consoling if we were told that tho plan "novor" failed, Instead of "hardly over;'' also we need iulvlco ns to When a person lias hod no dream to think of, or can not for the ^ life of hint rememher what^ it was; and obviously IjjTs lin|)bs»lble to begin to think ilbnitV our test dream when one husKinly just (June to bed. With these ileduCtions tlio' plan may aa well be worth trying as any other. \Vc can net nl way.- linvn a vohimö (If surtupns at our bclsldc. There wa« a London gentleman who years a go really believed he had found an absolutely certain prescription for banishing wakefulness, and he was willing to impart his knowledge to others for a handsome fee on the ox press condition that tho information *'go no furthor." When the sloop practitioner died one of his patients informed an expectant world that tho grand secret was sim ply this: A person lying in bed, and attempting to sloop, usually breathes . through his nostrils, and the breath so eraitted is, in cold weather, quite visi ble. All that has to be done is for the freshing Blumber. There may be some virtue in this prescription, though common sense would be inclined to suppose that tho more bother of imag- . ining any thing whatever would be so tiresome as to excite the brain and banish sleep much farther off than Some persons, however, testified to the complete efficacy of the breathing plan. Alfred Smee, the author of *'Elements of Electro-Biology," also attempted to solve the puzzle of why sleep, when much needed, is often altogether denied. Ho referred the whole matter to the region of circuit," but the practical prescription was to wet the top of tho head with cold water, and he asserts that he ha* thus often obtained for a sufferer rest subject to think of his own breathing, to imagine that ho sees every breath that issues from his nostrils, and in a moment or two he will fall into a re ever. "the bio-dynaraic when every other menus have failed. All these spirited endeavors are worthy of much praise; but perhaps t he best prescription for avoiding sleep less nights, or parts of nights, i.s not to take heavy suppers, to go in for exer cise and not sit up late exciting the brain. There is a delightful ease about the iilcn of being able to "turn oil" the sleep fairy by just shutting up one oup board of tho brain and opening tbe oilier. It does away with all necessity for those refreshing night-caps, either of whisky toddy or brandy and water, which some unthinking persons have boon in the habit of using, with, we believe, the happiest results. The eon Ii, mod toddy di inker, especially if lie happen to be a Scotchman, would laugh to scorn the idea of inducing sleep by an expedient of trying to recollect a dream ' * Possibly it would bo botter for him and for uli like him if he were led to believe in the "sinister lobe" theory and there may be a good time coming for all of habits of temper anqe will be directly occasioned by the disuse of "night-caps" and tho sub stitution for them of thinking-caps in stead. , who Our friend the patron of the sinister lobe is evidently a rather insomnolont subject. He admits that it has been his habit for many years to try to lull himself off to sleep by other devices, such as counting numbers or the repe Ho ha« now, however, hit upon tho more ox- l colent^an which he patriotically con tides to his wakeful countrymen and countrywomen, and in which he was to u certain extent forestalled by Sir David Brewster, who had noticed that differ tition of easy-flowing verses. , , . . cut parts of tho body go to sleep at .... ' ' e different times, and thence argued the possibility, by analogy, of different parts of tiie brain "going off" in a similar succession. ! There is not much reason to doubt that if we can once get the proper lobe into the condition immediately command sleep; but tho method of thinking of former dreams, and going over them in all their details, is obvi ously insufficient to meet the require- ; monts of the case.—London Tele £ ,,tt Ph' of the ce rob r which wo desire we c Where's the Fascination ? Tho proprietor of a pool-room re marked, as he glanced over a hundred or two men who were scattered about his place: "It is a mysterious thing to me where tho fascination of tiie game of pool comes in. There aro men here i to-night who have boon coming here i steadily every evening in the week, ex copt Sundays, for eight or ten years, Some of them are old, somo middle aged and some young mon. They arrive with the regularity of fate immediate ly after dinner, usually smoking a big cigar, pull off their coats, and go to work in a leisurely manner to play pool. Of course, they are good play ers. They must bo, after so much practice. They poke the balls for a hour or two, drink three or four glasses of beer, light another cigar, and toddle off home poiffectly content ed and thoroughly satisfied with their evening's amusement.

This I showed by statistics. I showed also that in the were conmiou schools little disposition was ghown to teach the elements of agricul ture, although new studies were being consiantlv added. That the drift and tendency was for population to move anti live in cities, instead of building up wealth in the country. T hat new con ditions were allocting tho farmer which made it absolu icly necessary for him to b* educated m order to compete with the better educated classes. Congress saw this, and saw also how difficult it would be to change suddenly the entire theory of education, aud by the "Act of 1802," provided by endow- 1 nient for tile establishment of new col- ' leges, having for their leading object "the benelii of agriculture and tlie me chanical arts," s0 as to reach and beu elit the very large class engaged in the ! pursuit of agriculture (one half of pop- ■' ulation), and also those engaged in me chanical pursuits; also to increase the number of educated persons recruiting ] t |„. m ,„ )m the c | asfe9 not a ' ttracted t * ! or ntu . na; tbe lbo „ UJlistin „ co | 1( ,„ cs flm , „„ivmsitics.

Tho law of Congress (1862) was "an net douating public lands to the several States and Territories which may pro vide colleges for the benefit of agricul tural aud mechanical arts." It gave to each State and Territory at the rate of 80,000 acres of public lands, or "scrip" representing it, for each Senator and Representative in Congress.

Tbe different sections of tlio act bring out lliu condit ous of the gift, and its acceptance, vi/.: How the fund shail be invested; how if any portion of tho fund or interest is lost "by any act or contingency - * it shall bo replaced by the State to whicli it bolongs. ex celling only "that a sum not exceeding It) per cent, of the amount received * * may be expended for the purchase of lands for sites of experimental farms."
