Grass Tbat "Ttre."
In aome parta of New Mexico there
grow a grass which produce a om
niferous effect on the animals that
grate upon it Horses, after eating tbe
grass. In nearly all case sleep stand
ing, while cows nd abeep almost In
variably lie down. .
It baa occasionally happened that
travelers have stopped to allow horses
to reea in places where the grass
grows pretty thickly and the animals
have bad time to eat a considerable
quantity before Its effects manifeated
In such cases horses hare gone to
sleep on the road and It la bard to
arouse them. Tbe effect of the grass
paaaea off In an hour or two, and no
bad results have ever been noticed on
account of It Cattle on the ranches
frequently come npon patches of this
grass, where they feed for perhaps half
aa hour and then fall asleep for an

Whether, like the poppy, the grass

There Is sn exctualv club in upper
Jfew Tork where the employees are for
bidden from awakening any member
Who dropa asleep in his chair In the li
brary or sitting room. If a visitor in
quires for him be U "out" Other mem
bers, If they see him, carry on their
conversation In Jew tones or go to the
smoking room or cafe. Very few new
members are admitted to tbe club, but
those wbe are fortunate enough to get
ia or those who bring visitors sre re
minded of this custom.
A physician who belongs to the club
explained the reason of it "It Is
wrong under any circumstances,' be
said, "to awaken a man who has fallen
Into a natural deep. How do you
know bnt It la tbe first time be baa
been able to sleep for hours or even
daya? Thla phenomenon of sleep is s
very complicated one. There are many
grade of sleep, and they affect differ
ent men to different ways. Dreams
sre tbe result of defective or partial
sleep, and their common occurrence
in the lighter varieties of tbe state
shows tbat tbe rest taken by moat per
son Is not profound or continuous
even while It tests.
"Don't you know tbat scores of per
sons In New Tork take s long trolley
ride In the evening simply to produce
a feeling of sleepiness? If 1 man looks
straight ahead of blm or read a news
paper bis ride will do him little good.
He might as well remain at home on
his front stoop. Bnt if he looks about
blm, constantly shifting bis gaze from
one scene to snotner, be, gets into a
state of drowsiness such ss is brought
SDout by artificial means wben it is
called hypnotism. . That Is wby so
many men feel like doling in tbe club
after they come in from a ride or a
drive in tbe park.
Bleep Induced by overeating Is not
natural. That brought about by stimu
lants is nothing bnt Wood poisoning
and stupor. It may be desirable and
even necessary in aome cases to pro
duce this stupor. But tbe state into
which tbe brain is thrown Is not sleep.
If natural sleep follows, it is a con
tingency and not tbe effect of the
stimulant But I waa going to tell
you a atory, not deliver a medical lec
ture. I must not mention names, but
many old club men of New Tork win
remember the tragedy. ,
There waa a man who waa quite
prominent, both In a business snd so
cial way, in tbe life of this city. A
dreadful family misfortune brought on
Insomnia. - He would sometimes co
forty-eight hours without sleep; then
after s normal night or two he would
not be able to aleep for a week. All
hla life until his trouble came upon
him be bad been habitually a heavy
aleeper. After two or three months of
this Insomnia attack bis health began
to give way. Physicians tried all the
usual meana of overcoming the dlffl-1
culty, but failed. He was prescribed
sleeping drafts until it became dan
gerous to continne them longer.
Then he went to Europe, taking a
competent young physician of my ac
quaintance as companion. Specialists
abroad prescribed walking and moun
tain climbing, but they discovered that
there ia nothing to be gained by In-
creasing the fatigue of the body when
worry of mind will not allow the re
pose to which the Umba are entitled.
The man came home little the better
for hla trip. He retired from business.
Hla strength wasted away. - -
Finally by one of those curious
freaks of nature we occasionally
caught him dosing at the club. All
