NOT A WINK-OP SLEEP. A Blecllat*a lUde ol Over Three Days Wlthoat Taking Aar Seat. One of the great "record breakers" has set all his compeers at defiance, says the I^rndon Lancet, by the truly marvelous effort of cycling from the I-mid's End to Johu o' Groat's In eighty six hours, fift-en minutes—that Is, silrc hours and forty minutes quicker than the "safety" record. We are informed that he experieucsd little fatigue, and tliat to all appearances he was not in auy way injured by his success but the most remarkable part of this act is included In the fact that he M-r formed the task without indulging in one moment of sleep. He was three days, fourteen hours and fifteen min utes without reclining once or resting or ceasing his active movement of pro pulsion, except for the very briefest mo ments. We -know from the best ex perimental proofs that the healthy heart will beat 100,000 times in the twenty-four hours, and that the low est estimate of the work done by thla labor is equal to lifting 123 tons one foot, but It has recently been shown that cycling tells severely and specially uiion the circulation, and that the num ber of the strokes of the heart is doubled during such active exercise as that to which the rider subjected him self, so that the lowest estimate we cau assume for the work of his heart each day was 212,000 beats, with work done of 244 foot tons and this, main talued for three days and fourteen hours and fifteen minutes, was equal to more than 854 foot tons without re pose. The experiment, for it must be looked upon physiologically as an ex periment is not without its uses. It shows that there remains much that is as yet unexplained in respect to the cause of sleep, suggesting, indeed, that there Is something In persistent motion of the blood, sustained by volition of a resolute kind, which prevents the nervous system from passing Into that passive or negative state to which the term "sleep" Is applied.

Diit Uwt'year we had so many grasshopper* that .they were too much for the turnips^ and we failed en tirely, although we sowed fifteen acres, and when feeding tline came we real ised more than ever the worth of the turnip crop. wblle we think: so highly :of turnips as stock food we have:a way of rais ing them that costs next to nothing, -and fits the land In splendid order for a succeeding spring1 crop of barley or. oats. Now Is the time to he thinking of growing them, and I will detall my way- I select afield that Is In good condition, and well seeded—If to clover so -much the better, though any sod will answer. I-mow this early, getting the ground dear not later than July 1,. and at once plow It well, being stire that It Is all, turned over. I roll It down flat and go over It the same way that it is plowed, with the Cntaway harrow. After this I go over It every three or four days with barrow or cul tivator, until July 20, by which time It should be In fine tilth. I then sow two hundred pounds of some high-grade fertiliser per acre, go over it with a smoothing harrow and then sow with two• pounds of Purple-top Strap-leaf turnip seed per acre. After sowing I roll the ground, and when the tnrnlpa have rough leaves two Inches In ua meter. If too thick, which, If the weath er has been favorable and the Seed good, will most likely be the case, I. put on the smoothlng harrow and run over them, llils will take out many of the turnips, but none too many, possi bly not enough. In which case a week later I go over the Add crosswise with the same tool. I have sometimes taken 'inches width and gone over the turnip field with great advantage to the yield. Grown In this way, aside from the pull ing they don't cost half a cent per bushel, and the small ones and leaves which will be left on the ground I regard as worth more as fertiliser than the cost of the seed.
