Osteopathy, the drugless science in
medicine, la only about flfte en years
old. The word U not even In the
Century Dictionary, edition 1895. Its
practice is going hand in band wltn
bloodless surgery, so that in time
we may expect to be cured without
pills and without a knife. Some
principles are: "Health means
physical adjustment;" health is na
turai; disease and death between the
time of birth and old age are on
natural. All bodily disorders are the
result of mechanical obstruction to
that freej circulation of vital fluids and
forces. The characteristic generally
ization of osteopathy in a nutshell Is
'most diseases are of spinal origin."

When all Is written, bow little we : K

eyes, a disapearnnce. a wondering re-1 3

dead rest, in horrid uibtumre or iuj
ecstasies of somnolent fancies the eyes ; st
are blinded, the body is abandoned.;!
while the Inner essence is we know not i A
where. We have no other knowledge
of sleep than we hnre of death. In de
lirium or coma or tmuce, no less than
in normal sleep and lu dissolution, t lie
soul is gone. Iu these it returns, in
thnt it does not come again, or so we
Ignorantly thluk.
Yet when I reflect on my death 1 for
get that I hnve encountered It ninny
times already nud find myself uone
the worse. 1 forget thnt 1 sleep. The
fly tills no shorter existence than
man's. We bustle about for n few
years with ludicrous lniportnnce. as
bottleflies buzz at the window panes.
They, too, umy imagine themselves of
infinite moment in this universe we
share with them. Hut this Is to tnke
no account of the propnosties of sleep.
There Is something hidden, soniethlns
secret, some uufnihouied mystery
whose presence we feel, hut cannot
verify; some nernieatlve thought in
sistently moving In our hearts, some
phosphorescence that glows we know j
not whence through our shadowy at- i
onis. )
Neither sleep Itself nor hnlf Its prom- !
Ises nor mysteries have beeu plumbed, j
It Is the mother of superstitions and !
of miracles. In dreams we may search
the surface powers of the freed soul. I
Visions iu the ulght are not all lmlln- j
cinatlons; voices in the ulght nre not i
all mocking. There Is a prophet dwells j
wlthlu the mlud-not of the mind, but ;
deeper throned In obscurity. j
The brain ennuot know of this holy
presence nor of Its life In sleep. The j
brain is mortal and untrust worthy, a j
phonograph nnd a camera for audible !
nnd palpable exigence. Strike It a i
blow lu childhood so thnt It ceases Its
labors and nwnke It by surcery after
forty years nnd it will repeat the In-
fantlle action or word It last recorded ;
and will tnke up Its task on the In- j
stant. making no account of the inter- !
mediate years. They nre nonexistent !
to it. Yet to that bidden memory those
diseased years nre not blank. It knows, j
it has recorded, though the brain hns
slept. And In hypnotic or psychic i
trance, when that wonderful ruler Is
released from the prison of the body, it '
can speak through the atom blent mn- j
cuiuery of the flesh nnd tell of things
man himself could not know because
of bis paralyzed brain. This naler Is
not asleep in sleep, nor In delirium Is
ft delirious, and in death Is It dead?
Tbrougb all the ages It bns been our
sphinx, wblcb we pnve interrogated in
vain. It Joins not In our laughter nor
our tears. We have fancied It with im
mobile, brooding fentures of utmost
knowledge and wisdom nnd sorrow. It
bus asked us but one question, nor
from the day of Oedipus uutn iodny
have we answered rightly, so that w
die of our Ignornnce. It Is Osiris llv.
0f In us It is the unknown God to
whom je erflct our altars, the fire in
the tabernacle, the presence behind the
veil. Not in normal wakefulness at
least will It answer our queries, but In
sleep sometimes It will speak. And it
may possibly be that at lust, after all
these centuries, we are learning how
