Most People Have an Aversion to
Seeking It.
Not That They Have Any Objection
to Slumber In Itself, but That
They Reject the Abject Sur
render Involved.
One of the characters in "The Moon
; and .Sixpence" remarked that he had
I faithfully lived up to the old precept
I about doing every day two things
j you heartily dislike; for. said he, every
j day lie had got up and he had gone
j to bed.
It Is a sad thing that as soon as the
l hands of the clock have turned ten the
| shadow of going to bed begins to creep
over the evening. We have never
beard bedgolng spoken of with any
enthusiasm. One after another we
have seen a gathering disperse, each
person saying (with an air of solemn
resignation): "Well, I guess I'll go to
bed." Rut there was no hilarity
about It. It Is really rather touching
how they cling to the departing skirts
of the day that Is vanishing under the
' Spinning shadow of night.
This Is odd, we repeat, for sleep Is
j highly popular among human beings.
i The reluctance to go to one's couch is
' not at all a reluctance to slumber, for
i almost all of us will doze happily In
I an armchair or on a sofa, or even fes
' tooned on the floor with a couple of
I cushions. But the actual and formal
j yielding to sheets and blankets is to
be postponed to the last possible mo-
I ment.
The devil of drowsiness Is most po
tent, we find, about 10:80 p. m. At
this period the human carcass seems
to consider that it has finished Its
cycle, which began with so much cour
age ahout 16 hours before. It be
gins to slack and the mind halts on
a dead center every now and then, re
fusing to complete the revolution.
Now, there are those who hold that
! this is certainly the seemly and ap
! pointed time to go to bed, and they
do so as a matter of routine.
These are, commonly, the happier
creatures, for they take the tide of
sleep at the flood and are borne calmly
nnd with gracious gentleness out to
■ great waters of nothingness. They
push off from the wharf on a tranquil
current, and nothing more Is to be
seen or heard of these voyagers until
they reappear at the breakfast table,
digging lustily Into the grapefruit.
These people are happy, aye, In a
brutish nnd sedentary fashion, but they
' miss the admirable adventures of
those more embittered wrestlers who
will not give In without a struggle.
: These latter suffer severe pangs be
tween 10:30 and about 11:15, while
they grapple with their falling facul
! ties nnd seek to re-establish the will
on Its tottering throne.
This requires courage, stout valor
unbending. Once you yield, be It ever
; so little to the tempter, you are lost.
And here our poor bard's clay plays
lus false, undermining the Intellect
with many a trick and wile. "I will
sit down for a season In that com
' fortable chair," the creature says to
| himself, "and read this sprightly
j novel. That will ease my mind and
1 put me in humor for a continuance
i of lively thinking."
And the end of that man Is a steady
| nazal buzz from the bottom of the
[ chair, where he has collapsed, an un
j sightly object and a disgrace to hu
, manity. This also means a big bill
; from the electric light company at
' the end of the month. In many such
i ways will his corpus betray him, lead
; ing him by plausible self-deceptions
I Into a pitfall of sleep, whence he Is
! aroused about three a. m,., when the
j planet turns over on the other side.

Tennyson Home on Market.
Aldworth on Blackdown. Tennyson's
home for many years, has been placed ; '
on the market. The property of the j
former poet laureate of England Is L
near Haslemere In the wild Surrey i
| country and stands by a long avenue < '
lof scrub oak along which Cromwell '
and his army are said to have marched ,
: from Arundel castle.
Aldworth was built In 1868 and on !
April 23, when the first stone was laid,
; the poet's wife made the following en
try in her diary:
"Shakespeare's birthday. A. In ex- !
! cellent spirits, lie was pleased with
| the Inscription on the stone: 'Prosper
! Thou the works of our hands, O pros- j \
j per Thou our handiwork.' "
Here In the shade of the ancient (
! trees Tennyson took his morning ;
walks, clad in his great black coat and [
his famous sombrero hat, which em- .
j phasized his long bearded face. T. P.
; O'Connor once remarked that It was
the best make-up for a poet that he
' had ever seen on or off the stage.
Maine Rich In Tourmalines.
Nowhere Is there such a wealth of '
tourmalines as in the state of Maine, h
I according to a recent statement on the <
development of the resources of that '
■ state. At Mount Mica. In the town of '
Paris, It says, Is a deposit of red and ,
J green tourmaline unequaled elsewhere, i
They arc, It would seem, almost In- '
exhaustible In quantity. of rare bean- '
ty, and when cut Into gem* are In L
good demand, many finding their way j,
into museum collections. |'
