To the Ordinary observer there was no cause for alarm. The decks were a lit Slippery but not dangerous except a Novice the hatches were on and in the lighted gallery the Cook might be discerned moving about in. A manner indicative of great Security and an untroubled conscience. With a last glance behind him the skipper descended from the Crane and old Puu ii Gunj Auu uru. Said the Cook coming out quietly.

Men seem to life easily. Even when they Grad uate they do it by May come from worry grief or hard mental work. The main thing to do therefore in order to induce sleep is to quiet these nerve cells and the prevention of wakefulness is Best secured by avoiding men Tal work in the evening. Often however a person must work at night. In that Cense he should Stop some time before going to bed and if he must work late it is better to stay a Short time in order to secure an interval of rest before trying to sleep. This time May be passed in any Way that will Force or rather entice the mind away from its previous occupation. A brisk walk or a Short on the wheel exercise with the dumb Bells or Indian clubs a Cool like these will often suffice for the desired purpose. Sometimes a Little snack such As a bit of cheese and a biscuit or a of Nii a Tonkon while Emlres ing. Will induce sleep quickly. If the mind is dwelling persistently on one subject do Nurt struggle to Force it to let go its thoughts for you will probably thereby make it take More tenacious hold. Try to Lead it away by picturing to yourself some monotonous constantly recurring scene like the water combing Over the Edge of Niagara s Cliff a swarm of flies chasing each other in the sunlight or a flock of sheep jump ing one after the other Over a log.
