Position and Sleep.
How many people are in the habit of
troubling themselves about the exact
point of the compass to which their
heads happen to be pointed when they
lay themselves down for their nocturnal
rest? One might have gone' on suppos
ing, but for the irrepressible Sir Benja
min Richardson, that it elid not in th"
least matter whether the head of one's
bedstead we/e turned north, south, east
or west. Bat i?ir Benjamin is full of
theories on the subject, and now that hr»
has expounded them we are in a por
tion to know that if we "turn our face
to the west," like Daddy in the sen
timental ballad wo ought to get th
soundest sle p, because in that case "th'.'
earth's motion will tend to send tL^
blwod to the head.''
Here is a suggested cure for insomnia
which is at l-ast worth a trial, and in
future a compass' should be an indis
pensable article of furuituro in ewry

Sir Benjamin Richardson has spoken,

is esjx'cially indignant at the charge
that he and those who stand with him
on the Chicago platform are to be
classed as anarchists or that they aim
to break down any tif the laws of the
country. Mr. Brymi has something
to say about the charge in his Cimaha
speech at the time of the reception to
him in that city. In his New York
speech, he will elaborate the idea and
roundly denounce the accusation.

Those who have been taken into his

say that this speech will astoijish the

of new and pleasing metaphors never
before used on any stage, and which
have nothing in common with "crowns
of thorns" or "crosses of gold." It is
understood that Hon. Richard P. Bland

Mr. Bryan's departure, will accompany

sections ofj patented and an in
definite quantity of unpatented lauds
were sold at public auction by Special
Master Alfred^L. Carey. The sale was
under a decree of the United States
circuit court of the Eastern district of
Wisconsin. The property was bought
in by Edwin W. Winter for the North
ern Pacific railway company, of which
he is president, for £1,705,200. A
private bidder attempted to purchase
one tract of 160 acres, but WTinter bid it
up to $15,000. and took it at that figure.
There was no opposition after this.
Winter purchased the next tract for
$100, with an option to take the rest of
the patented land at the same figure,
which he promptly covered, depositing
$119,010 in Northern Pacific bonds.
The remaining lands of the company
were knocked down to him for a lump
bid of $505,000.

Aug. 5.—Mr. Hagel,
C., and Mr. McPherriu have returned
from Argyle, Minn., whither they went
to examine a cast which was alleged to
be that of the petrified man, over which
there was litigation here recently. The
measurements of the body and of the
cast do not agree aud there is no re
semblance in feature or form between
the two. Those who were present at
the examination expressed the convic
tion that the cast and the body here
have no relation to each other.

their experiences and sympathies, and
we pledge to them our most hearty and
willing effort and support, with the full

the inspiration of a sure prophecy of
victory at the polls in November next.
