When .Oue Sleeps.
A shrewd man says, "A man can de
ceive me as to his real character when
he is awake, but if 1 can once see him
asleep I can tell you what he is." And
there ia a strange truth in it. In sleep a
man is off guard. The will no longer
dominates, and first nature -comes back
and asserts herself. One can make his
face say what he chooses when he is
awake, but when sleep touches his face
it tells the truth. . The forced smile slips
away ;ind the cruel lines about the
mouth stand out. The closed eyes shut
out the look of determination that some
times gets into a man's face without the
reality in his sonl. and the childish inde
cision" and irresolution that come back
show you that the man is weaker than he
makes vou believe.
It was a half knowledge of this fact
that a clever French woman used to
phrase when she declared that she never

of it yet-r-or hadn't got the soul into it.

Strong Language of Curly le on. Those
Who "Km barked lu Philanthropy." .
Bv way of individualizing for ourselves
the philanthrooist as Carlyle believed heJ
found him in his own country, we ask first,
I think. What is Mb place in society? what
is his relation to others not philanthro
pists? By way of answer to this question 1
we learn from Carlyle that society is di
vided into two great genera, as they may
be called the great dumb "inarticulate
class" and "the articulnte class." This
latter class we flud is further divisible into
two a large ignoble majority, "intelligent
and influential, busied mainly in persoiiHl
affairs," who "accept the social iniquities
and the miseries consequent upon them,"
and "a select small minority in whom
some sentiment' of public spirit and hu
man pity still survives, among whom, or
not anywhere, the good cause may expect
to And soldiers and . sovereigns." It is
these last,- "the silent small minority,"
that are Carlyle'. philanthropists. If we
say that in some measure they answer to
the remnant) of old Hebrew times as trent-
ed of by tbe late Mr. Matthew Arnold we
shall not go far wrong.
Passing to Carlyle s charges against the
class now under consideration, those who,
to quote his own words, "embark in the
philanthropic movement," his first and
heaviest charge, at bottom inclusive of all
others, is that they misconceive the situa
tion. It is not that they deoy the existence
of great public misery we .have seen that
they are even impressed and stirred to
action by it. They at least do not call good
evil and evil Kood, put "bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter-" No; but they seem
never to have asked themselves how it
came about that "any world or thing fell
into misery," or if they flid the true an
swer to the quest-ion seems never to have
occurred to them, viz., that it was because
it had "first fallen into folly, into sin
against the supreme ruler of it, by adopt
ing as a law of conduct what was not a
law, but the reverse of one."
. . The offenses aud omissions of the last
200 years, Carlyle believed, had been every
one of them registered against his country
men in heaven's chancery; bad all tbe
while lain there generating frightful inter
est and compound interest, until at last
they had produced the frightful situation

An Improved Castor.
A useful castor of novel form is being
used in England. It is intended to obvi
ate the difficulties arising from the ordi
nary construction of castors, where the
roller is carried on a cranked swivel arm
which is easily broken off. The -center
pin of the roller bearing is fixed in a
small plate, rotating freely round a cen
tre pin secured in the body of tbe castor.
The plate named, when pushed round
into any position, rests on the base of
the cup or disc of tbe castor and is thus.

this: "I was sitting in a box at a theatre
one evening when one of the men present
said: 'I always look around in a theatre
for the easiest way of escape in case of nre,
or for some way in which I could reach the
stage if any accident were to occur there.
Now,-suppose that actress' gown should
take fire. I would step on that garland
there, steadying myself by the rail with
tbe arm which held my overcoat, reach my
foot across to that frieze in high relief and
spring thence to tbe stage. In thirty-five
seconds I should have reached her and
have the flames smothered with my coat.'
"I laughed at him. Well, as it happened
that very actress' gown , did catch fire,
and she gave a piercing scream that almost
