pour over It two small bottles of oil.
Instantly the fierce beat sent the bal

Its Twin Mystery. Death.
When all Is written, bow little we
know of sleep! It Is a closing of the
eyes, a dlsapiwnrtuice. a wondering re
turn. In uneasy slum tier. In dreamless
dead rest. In horrid nlittiluiare or In
ecstasies of somnolent funded the eyes
are blinded, tbe body Is abandoned,
while tbe Inner essence Is we know not

of sleep than wc have of death. In de

no account of the prognostic of sleep.

within tbe mind not of the mind, but
deeper throned In obscurity.
Tbe brain cannot know of this holy
presence nor of Its life in sleep. The
brain Is mortal and untrustworthy, a
phonograph and a camera for audible
and palpable existence. Strike It a
blow In childhood so that It ceases Its
labors and awake It by surgery after
forty years and It wtil repeat the In

Through all tbe ages It has been onr , ieni)moU Lluyd
sphinx, which we have Interrogated In I
vain. It Joins not In our laughter nor
our tears. We have fancied It with Im
mobile, brooding features of utmost
knowledge and wisdom and sorrow. It
has asked us but one question, nor
from tbe day of Oedipus nnto today
have we answered rightly, so that we
die of our Ignorance. It Is Osiris liv
ing in us. It Is tbe unknown God to
whom we erect our altars, the fire In
tbe tabernacle, the presence behind the
veil. Not In normal wakefulness at
least will It answer our queries, but In
sleep sometimes It will speak. And It
may possibly be that at last, after all
these centuries, we are lenrning how
to question it and in hypnotic trance
and In the fearful law of suggestion
are discovering somewhat of Its mys
tery and how to employ It for our
worldly goKi. Yet to Its essential se
cret we are no closer than our fore
We may define dreams and night
mare, coma and swoon and trance
with what terms we will, search their
physical reasons and learn to guide
and guard, yet we know no more of
them than of electricity. We may be
gin lo suspect that telepathy and clair
voyance and occult forces of the sonl
are not superstitious fancies, and we
may even empirically classify and
Btudy and direct them. Yet the soul
Itself Is no nearer our Inquisition.
Though we should know of Its teal
Ity, though our finite minds should
fathom tbe Infinitude, of what benefit
would It he? Would It modify our be
liefs or our bopes or our faiths? Won Id
It dictate one action to our passionate
lives? There would be no change In
human nn-ture and no reforms of tbe
world. We are the children of our fa
thers, and our children will tread the
prehistoric paths. Dreams are our life,
whether we wake or sleep We drowse
through existence, awaking and dying
and being reborn dally, ever torpescent
and una mazed, and our thousand slum
berous deaths we call restorative sleep
sleep tbat restores our physical be
ing, building up where we have torn
down, recreating what we destroy.
