THE AFTERNOON NAP.
Modern Conditions Killins the
tn Habit In Mexico.
There are people in Mexico City who
take their afternoon nap every day,
and are greatly benefited thereby, but
their number appears to be growing
less year by year. Whether the siesta
Is beneficial or not, or whether In this
high altitude it is a necessity for many
persons, as is claimed by some, its
death knell as a general custom seems
to hare been sounded since the city
adopted its modern enterprise and
push. Many old residents will tell yon
of the time when a person in the city
of Mexico would have been considered
almost crazy if he ncgleciod his after
noon rest, but gradually, with the ad
vent of the railways, the street cars
and the electric lights, came the in
evitable sleeplessness which is one of
the most noticeable characteristics of
There are several supporters of the
siesta idea in this city who express re
gret that the custom appears to be
passing away. I hese persons, wno are
themselves devotees of the practice,
claim that it is a healthful and nerve
restoring habit and that if it were in
dulged in systematically by the people
of the United States and other pro
gressive countries there would be few
er cases of nervous wrecks for the
newspapers to report. "Early rising
and a short nap after dinner" is what
these people advocate, claiming that
the best work of most persons is per
formed in the morning. Mexican Her
ald. FIRST USE OF TEA.
An Ancient Leg-end Ascribes It to
King of China.
By whom or when, the use of tea for
drinking purposes was first discovered
is lost in antiquity. It is spoken of as
a famous herb in Chinese literature as
far back as 2,000 years B. C, at which
time its cultivation and classification
were almost as thorough and complete
as they are today. One of the ancient
legends says that its virtues were ac
cidentally learned by King Shen Nung
She, the Chinese monarch who is also
known as "the divine husbandman,'
who, the record says, flourished forty
centuries ago. He was engaged in boil
ing water over a fire made of the
branches of the tea plant and careless
ly allowed some of the leaves to fall
into the pot.
The liquid which he expected to come
from the vessel simply as sterilized
water was miraculously converted into
an elixir of life by the accidental ad
dition of the tea leaves. Soon after ii
became highly esteemed in all the ori
ental cities and was used as a royal
gift from tbe Chinese monarchs to the
potentates of southern ,and western
This same King Shen Nung She not
only earned the title of respect by
which he was known through the dis
covery of the virtues of tea, but be
cause of being the first to teach his
people how to make and use plows and
many other implements' of husbandry.
SAVED BY A GYPSY,
Incident of tbe Anstro-Prnssian
War of 1SCC.
An incident of the Austro-Prussian
war of 18GG was told as follows by the
Archduke Joseph: "On our retreat be-fo-e
the advance of the Frussian
G: :.y," said the archduke, "we camped
In the neighborhood of a Bohemian
t. . v.-ii. I was lodged in a peasant's cot
ta. e when about midnight I heard the
stairy challenging some newcomer.
I.:.v adjutant entered and reported that
a i-ypsy wanted to see me in private.
A .'.oldier (a gypsy) entered, and on my
asking what was the matter he told me
ti..:t the enemy was approaching to
Eti '.prise us.
' 'The outposts have not heard any
thing suspicious,' .1 said. 'No, your
highness, because the enemy is still a
long way off.' 'But how do you know
this?' I asked. 'Come to the window,
your highness,' answered the man. 'Do
you see those birds flying over the
wood toward the south?' 'Yes, I see
them. What, then?' 'What, then? Do
not birds sleep as well as men? They
certainly would not fly about if they
were not disturbed. The enemy is
marching through the wood and has
frightened all those birds.'.
