Con went home tliat nlglit, ecstatically

John Nicollet is a bandy genius,
and delights in a talent that makes him
a sort ot Jack of all trades. His cabin
is a museum wherein all sorts of articles,
from a broken thermometer to a model
for a patent slag-pot, can be found,
and in odd moments Jobn exercises hie
genius to its full bent. He recently
came into possession of an old rifle.
He knew it was not loaded, so be pot
the breech into the fire, ble bis band

old barrel, muzz'e pointed toward him,
and finally stepped across the cabin,
leaving it in the: fire. Suddenly the
old gun-barrel disgorged a load that

large enough tor John to crawl through,
and he felt like doing it when be re
membered what a narrow escape be bad

- - General Joe Johnston is credited with
having origins le4the project of making
Grant Captain-General of the Army,
at a salary of $50,000. It b net at all
probable that General Grant cares to
be pensiojoed off in that manner. He
could make that much per annum in
civil life and have actual doxies to de
vote his energies to. ; He is not by any
means a drone.

We bear a deal about the amount of
sleep, we most have to-order to be and
to keephealthfBl. There are, of coarse,
many cptmone on the abject, and each
physician naturally assumes to be excel
lent authority.: ; A view widely held is
that persons who work with their brain
need eight boars ot sound sleep, and
will suffer, soon or late, unless they
averaee as moeh as that? Some per
sons maintain that six hoars are suffi.
cietit fbr any rigorous person ; others
that five wUl answer. No absolute
rule, however, can be laid down. The
quantity of sleep depends very largely
on the man and his habit. He who has
been. accaomed toslesfv. eight .boars'
out of thetwenty.four thinks it impossi
ble to get on with anything less. He
who lief tn bed bat five of six hoars
habitually, seldom feels the need of any
more. Sleep indeed can readily be re
gulated by will an3 practice, occupation
and self-interest often governing the
matter. Most ot us can after a little
while, wake op at any time we wish,
and many can drop asleep at once, it
they give their attention to it. Napo
leon Bonaparte could slip into uncon
sciousness the moment be lay down ;
sleep for an boor, half an hoar, ten or
five minutes, as he wished. And he
hardly ever slept more than tour hours
a night, although he used his brain and
nerves, not to speak of his body, as few
men have before or since. Qnin, the
actor, on tlie other hand, would sleep
lor twenty-four consecutive hoars. Not
a few persons sleep any length of time
if undisturbed, never waking spontane
ously where there is quiet, even atter
twenty or more hours. One John
Mackey ot Skerry, England, died ir
1797, at the age of 91 ; be bad been
remarkably healthy and vigorous from
birth, and yet be had never slept more
than four hours of a night. Frederick
the Great and John Hunter, the cele
brated surgeon, slept bat' fire hoars.
and General Pichegrew never allowed
h Unset to exceed one hoar bat of twenty
four during a whole year's campaign.
Walter Scott declared that be reqnired
eight hoars of absolute oblivion to fit
him for the duties of composition. Men
ot firm will, high character, great self-
discipline, can do pretty much Jaa they
decide. They can, it. so inclined, re
create themselves, and one seldom bears
ot their saying what they most or most
not do. More or less steep is essential
to all of as, but we can live ami be
oomfortable on very ' little,, if we be so
resolved. Sleep, like food, can be or-
dered and adjusted according to our,
will. What we wish to do we are wont
to say' we must do, but there are no
roasts in the life of a manly man.
" The national pension list is lengthen

growing longer and longer every year.
The probabilities are that one-quarter
of the persons who now receive pensions
