Dr. Andrew Wilson lit the I .on don I'hron- Icle. I have been perusing a learned and high ly Interesting lecture by Sir James Saw yer. M. D.. on tt topic which imeaease* it deep Interest for all physiologists and for most other folka as well—l mean that of aleep and sleeplessness. The avenge mortal erareelv compreherals how llltlo we really know als>ut Ihe exact nature o' the "Ape of Death." as Shakepeure term* that state wherein we |*i-e peace fully Into the laind of Nod. I! Is not only the cause of sleep which constitutes a scientific puzzle; Ihe cur. of sleepless ness lx another matter which doubles a difficulty that before was single. There Is no doubt that a sleeping brain receives , blond than a waking one. Durham * observation* settled that point long ago. and su’aequent observer* Inclined to this k]t*> that they had explained what sleep Is when they had asserted the anaemic stale of the brain as Its real cause Hut It kt obvious that while our brain In creases Its blood supply when we woke, as <• inversely It diminishes that suptdy trhen we go to sleep, these facts do not lead us to the vera causa at all. They are retentions merely, and not causes. The movements of a door ore not to b* explained by saying that II move* on Its hinges What we desire o know Is what seta the door In motion. Aral so with sleep. Heyond this question of the hratn's blood supply, we have lo face that of the brain's constitution. It Is only hv dipping into the brain's structure that we are able to gain some adequate Idea regarding Ihe real condition* that legu- I I- I . ltd j eh if 'll., f mental door. When brain cells nr carefully etudhd In their different phases of activity and repose they are seen to undergo certain remarkable changes In shape. The pro eeusrs or branches through which con tact Is made between one cell and another are seen to be retracted In the resting state, while In activity they are extend ed However the changes In question ar brought tbout, we may conclude that It Is the switching off of the brain cells from each other and the breaking of the contacts necessary for the carrying on of their work whk h represent the true cause of sleep. Fatigue of the brain cell Is thus the dominant note of repose, and the mechanism whereby that repnee Is of their (tranches It Is all Just like a telephone exchange In this respect, where we fled contacts made ami hroken eon • Immllv In the active work of the renter. At night the connection* are practically severed, nnd such ns may he made in the ease of the brain exchange earrytng on the work of dreaming they represent the work of the night shift of the brain. If this view of sleep he correct, we see more clearly than ever that our resting period must represent a habit. Just na rib 1 1 Irr-— *■ In Ita essence Is a habit of another kind. We break Into the cycle of sleep when we suffer from Insomnia and substitute another hshlt for that of reiose Whnt our doctors do for us is to negative the vicious habit by replacing that of sleep, but hie labor, hoc opus est. With Hsnrho Pana-i. In truth. We may ! well agree when he exclaims- "God hires the man that first Invented sleep!” —Rear Admiral BcMey has accepted an Invitation to attend the Kntghsn Templar Conclave at Ixiulsvllle.
