BRINGS "SANDMAN" IN HURR A« Sleep-Inducer, Amateur Paycholo gist Has a Scheme Far Superior to Counting Sheep. “Counting sheep” used to be the great recipe for going to sleep. You simply closed your eyes. Imagined a rull fence with a gap in it and white, woolly sheep Jumping through, one at a time. You counted them carefully as they came, and about the time you got to about 290. why, off you dropjied to slumherluud. But the amateur psychologist suys counting sheep is old-fashioned and Impractical now. The trouble was, he explains, the people used their Imagina tions too much. Insteud of confining themselves solely to the sheep, they would imagine a whole pasture, with trees and hills and a sky full of clouds beyond, and their attention was so dif fused keeping track of the landscape that they couldn't keep their minds concentrated on the sheep. Presently they lost Interest and then old man In somnia camped ou their trail for sev eral hours. The newer and more scientific meth od for hypnotizing yourself to sleep, says the amateur psychologist. Is to find out your particular drowsy ob session and concentrate. “Whenever I feel a nervous, wakeful night coining on," he suys, “I Imagine myself in the interior of a vast, dim cuthedrul. Only a single ray of light filters in and It falls on the crossing aisle. An endless procession of hooded monks is moving slowly down this aisle, and I count them as they pass through the ray of light, one at u time. My mind is wholly engrossed with this slowly moving procession, and the in ferior of the cuthedral Is so obscure and dim that It does not distract me at all. Sometimes I fancy I hear far .off strains of a pipe orgoti. The sug gestion of music speeds the sleep in ducing process. "I never have to count more than a hundred monks before the sundmun gets me.” Chinese Fossil Teeth. An Kuropean investigator has made a singular collection of fossil teeth from drug stores in various parts of China, where they are sold under the name of dragons’ teeth and are valued for their supposed curative powers. Upon examining them it was*found by this Investigator that they are the remains of many species of extinct animals, such as the ancestral forms of cuinels, saber-toothed tigers, three toed horses and other creutureso’f ancient times, some of which, like the ancestral forms of camels and ante lopes, were supposed to have had their original home in America and In Afri ca. Judging from the quantities ot these teeth sold, the investigator thinks they must exist in enormous numbers in some parts of China. Doom Century-Old Bridge. The picturesque covered wooden bridge, near Chester, Orange county. New York, known for neurly u cen tury as Brook’s bridge, has been con demned by state highway engineers and will be torn down to make way for a steel and stone structure. According to tradition, the “Stour bridge Lion,” first locomotive built In America, passed over Brook’s bridge before it was assembled. The Stour bridge made Its trial trip 91 years ago. The first run was at Honesdale. a mile from the bridge. The structure has not a nail or metal bolt In It. All the timbers are hand hewn and pinned together with wooden pegs, wheh have held tightly throughout the years. It Is said to have been completed in 1820. Wood-Carving by Sand-Blast A process of carving wood by special application of the sand-blast, reported in the Compressed Air Magazine (New York), is said to be giving highly satis factbr.v results In California, especial ly when applied to the redwood of that state. We read: "Portions of the sur face are covered by protective sten cils which leave figures In relief and a uniform background. Very rich effects are produced in paneling the walls of a dining room, hall or den. While much of the work Is done in the nat ural color of the rich, reddish brown wood, striking effects are brought out by the use of paints, deep blues, reds, browns and gilt." Marins Spsctacls. A captain of an Atlantic liner was bothered by a woman passenger who was always inquiring about the pos sibility of seeing a whale. A dozen times a day she besought him to have tier called if one hove in sight. “But. madam," the captain asked her rather impatiently, after long suf fering in silence, “why are you so eager to see a whale?” “Captain." she answered “my de sire in life is to see a whale blubber. It must be very impressive to watch such an enormous creature cry.” Very Much Affrayed. “Coin* in that house over there?” sold the first tramp. “I tried that house last week. I ain’t goin’ there any more,” replied tramp No. 2. “’Frabl on account of the dog?” “My trousers are.” “Trousers are what?” “Frayed on account of the dog.” Excusable Ignorance.

In hospitals are many women who are there for surgical operations,and there is nothing a woman dreads more than the thought of an operation, and the long weary months of recovery and restoration to strength if it is successful. It is very true that female troubles may through neglect reach a stage where an operation is the only resource, but most of the commoner ailments of women are not the surgical ones ; they are not caused by serious displace ments, tumors or growths, although the symptoms may appear the same.
