He start- ed to KO. and met Mr. Elington in one tion, for he experiences no pleasure in gazinir upon the beauties around him. She looked at- him wonderingly for an explanation, but before it could be given, a heavy step sounded on the streat outside, followed by a. loud knock on the door. The Doctor, without wailing to admit thc visitor, stepped in- to the little kitchen where thc children were preparing breakfast, and just as he did so. the street door opened, and a tall man stood upon the threshold.

He continued his visits during the week, but did not encounter Mr. Kling- ton again, and supposed the little disa- greement entirely forgotten. The evening of thc party had arrived, and Dr Savory stood before the little glass in his office, taking a critical sur- vey of his handsome person; he was rather fastidious about his toilet at all times, but deemed it necessary, in hon- or of this particular occassioc, to look his very best. He was just fastening the last button of his itnmaculfite kids, and with her head upon his bosom, sob- ceived for answer only a little tear- stained note, saying that she Ind been j forts to change her father's decision had been ineffectual; and ending with assurances of everlasting fidelity.

Suffice it to say, that during the inter- view Mr. Elington learned with sur- prise that his sister had been supported by the Odd Fellows, aud was indebted to them for all the comforts she had eu- joyed during her husband's sickness and since his death, and for the care and attention that had preserved her own life. He also learned where Dr. Savory spent the night of the party, and when that person presented himself to see how his patient had sustained the when the door opened, and two gentle- men entered, the one n middle-aged, the other a young man.

The oldest girl said her name was Mary Higgins. and her sister's name was Kathleen; hut said she, we call her Kittie."

That is all we can neej and yet it seems'hard to believe these things are all that conatituta sleep. If so, sleep might be accurately aefined as a sim- ple cesutiou of volition, or the action of the will, to that thought and motion of all muscles eseept those of the vital or- gans is impossible. But a tittle thought will show that cessation of will is only oue of the manifestations of sleep, and that the will may and frequently does only partially cease retaining command of tlie voluntary muscles, and giving rise to the phenomenon of s.oiu- lambulism. At times also the mind Decoiues active in sloop, and often rea- sons with surprising coherence, and dreams, more or less approximating to realities of waking hours, are produced. But the 'mystery of mysteries per- ;aining to sleep, is the fact that it ren- ovates the system from fatigue. And if'teral, (his is no greater mystery.thau fatigue.itself. What is fatigue? In what state of mitid or body, or both. doen-it consist are questions the. ans- wer to. which still puzzle the profound- est physiologists. The periodicity of the desire for lecp is another peculiarity which is still involved in Why is it ;haf, darkuots, monotonous, noises, the txing of the eyes upon some stationary object, all favor, the -approach of sleep On all these'points there is still no cer- tain light.
