Starved Into Submission.
Ihe war now waged against France
by the North African Arabs, like that
of A bd-El-Kader,thirty- five years ago, is
simply a starvation match, in which a
few officers like I>r. Tanner and Mr.
Griscom would la- invaluable. .Skir
mishes are rare, pitched battles rarer
"till. The army which happens to have
the most food and water draws its less
fortunate enemy into the barest and
driest regions, striving to wear him out
in a constant, fruitless chase under a
burning sun. In such a contest famine
and disease take tenfold moro lives
than the sword. Marshal Lamoricicre
himself, tho French commander-in
chief in the splendid campaign of
1846, sapped on the night dT his great
est victory npon a half-starved cat bo
longing to one of his officers. But to
outstarve an Arab is no such oasv mat
ter. Tho Kabyles of Algeria, when
their crop of dhaura (coarse corn)
failed them, have been known to live
for months upon tho small hard
which aro so abundant in Northern
Africa. It was reserved for tho re
morseless ingennity of General I'elis
sier, the future conqueror of Selmstopol,
to discover away of fighting these hardy
nomads with their own weapons.
Sweeping through their territory with
a large laxly of irregular horse, he cut
down in passing all the date-palms
ujion which the very life of the native
population depended. Then, bringing
up the main body of his army with in
conceivable rapidity, ho drove back the
hoetilo tribes into the region thns des
olated. and after more than half their
nnmber had actually died of starvation,
forced the snrvivors to yield from sheer
inability to drag their weakened limbs
The President's .Sons.
General Garfield does not like his
boys to be coddled. In the letter he
wrote to Dr. Hawkes at Montana, invit
ing him to come and be their preceptor
this summer, he stipulated that they
should havo rigid dnties required of
them, and be treated like any other
citizen's sons. Tee connection of this
gentleman with the President's family
has been mutually pleasing. Ho is a
quiet, forcible man, a bachelor of per
haps thirty-five, tho son of a New Eng
land Methodist minister, a graduate of
Brown university, and afterward of the
medical department of the University
of Pennsylvania. The boys cling to
him with great confidence and affec
tion. Donald Bock well, who is always
callod " Don," studies with Harry and
James Garfield in preparation for col
lege, and siuct the studies were resumed
on Monday last they have l>eon con
ducted at Colonel Bock well's residence
on Corcoran street, some distance from
the White House, where also Mollio is
staying with her friend Lnlu Kockwell.
Jim sends tho presidential carriago for
his tutor every morning and sends him
home in it at 1 o'clock, when the day's
studio* arc done, with Albert, the
"tony" colored driver, in charge. Dr.
Hawkes goos horseback riding or row
ing with the boys qnite often after
school boars. Ho finds them bright,
teachable and gentlemanly as pnpils,
and intelligent and confiding as com-
F\. punions. The crude, eccentric sayings
and doings that appear in print accred
ited to the President's sons, especially
James and Irvin, are gross exaggera
tions. They are well bred and well
controlled boys of naturally strong in
dividuality. Thai k all. W.uMngton

A Into is.stto of the Ogdcu (In.) A -
l>ori'T says: Onlast Wednesday night,
when O'Ncil, Dona.uo and Olnritead
want down to deatli, a noble girl, hut
fifteen years of age, was watching for
the safety of those whose duty called
them out over the railroad in the fear
fill atorm. Kute Shelly, whoso father
was killed on the railroad some years
ago, lives with her rnotb< r just on the
east sido of the river, and nearly oppo
site whore the engine made the fearful
plunge and Donahue and Olmstead lost
their lives. Miss Hhc-lly and her mother
heard one crash, and, realizing what
had happened, Kute took a lantern and
started for the wreck. Her light soon
went out, hut she felt her way through
the woods an 1 fall n timbers to the
edge of the dashing waters that cov
ered the drowned men. She conld hear
al>ove the roar of the storm the voice
of Wood, the engineer, who ha i caught
in a tree top. She knew that the ex
press, with its load of passengers, was
nearly duo. She, a young girl, was the
only living being who conld pit vent an
awful catastrophe. The telegraph office
at Moingoria or iroono was the only
place where she conld notify theofllccr-.
To Hoono was live miles over hills and
through the woo'' . an 1 l>ofnre •.he
could get there the expre** would have '■
passed. To Moingona was only a mile,
but betwi on here and Moingona was the
I >es Moines river, ten or fifteen feet i
aliovo its nntnra! height, and to cr< *•
this she must pass over the railroad
bridge,fiftv feet alwive the swollen waters.
Bho must cross this bridge, 40(1 feet
long, with nothing bnt tin-tie* and rails,
the wind blowing agile. Not ono man
in a thousand but would have shrunk
from such a task. Rut this brave girl
gathered aliout h<r her flowing skirts
and on hand* and knees crawled over
the long bridge from tie to tie. With
the blood from her lacerated knees
staining her dress she reached the
shore, and ran the remaining half-mile
to the telegraph office, breathless, and
in broken accents, she told her story
and fainted in the arm* of the bystand
ers. Tiie wires were set at work and a
more horrible disaster was averted.
Two Historical Incident*.
Whether from a medical or apolitical
point of view, few historical crimes have
better merited attention than the first
attempt upon the life of William the
Hilent, founder of the Dutch republic.
A pistol shot, fired by a half-crazed
Hpaniard named John Jauroguy, trav
ersed Prince William's face and throat,
causing an efTnsion of blood which
seemed to make his death absolutely
certain. No regular surgical appliances
being at hand, two of his friends re
lieved each other for several hours in
keeping their thnmbs pressed upon the
wonnded artery till help conld he ob
tained, and this simple device actnally
saved the prince's life for the time 1 ic
ing. More akin to President Garfield's
ease in the universal interest which it
excited, although widely different in
other respects, was the murder, as it is
now held to have lieen, of Connt Mira
( bean, the famous popular champion of
the earliest days OHIIO French Revolu
tion. The moment his illness was
noised abroad the peoplo closed the
street against carriages with their own
hands, nlint the theaters and roughly
handled more than one jairty of liall

jostled each other ronml the bulletins,

crowded off their foot whenever they
appeared, "All France," it was em

lion Ding Should We Sleep >
i he vital process of man, lik<- those
of all his fellow-creatures, are partly
controlled by automatic tendencies.
Some functions of our internal econ
omy are too ini|>ortant to be trusted to
the caprices of human volition ; breath
ing, rating, drinking, and even love,
are only semi-voluntary actions; and
during a period varying from one-fourth
to two-fifths of each solar day the con.
scions activity of the enses undergoes
a complete sns]H>n*e; the cerebral Wnfk
hop is closed for repairs, and the abused
or exhausted IKHIV commits its organism
into the healing hands of nature, t'nder
favorable conditions eight lionrs of un
di tnrhed sleep won Id almost suffice to
counteract the physiological mischief of
the sixteen waking hours. During
sleep the organ of cons. iouanc < is nt
rest, and the energies of the system
seem to be concentrated on the function
of nutrition and the renews! of the
vital energy in general; deep prompt,
digestion, repairs the waste of the
cular tissue, favors the process of cuta
neous excretion, and renews the vigor
of the mental faculties.
The amount of sleep required by man
is generally proportionate to the waste
of vital strength, whether by muscular
exertion, mental activity (or emotion),
or by the process of rapid assimnlation,
as during the first years of growth and
daring the recovery from an exhausting
disease. The weight of a new-born
child increases more rapidly than that
of a eupeptic adult, enjoying a lil>ernl
diet after a period of starvation, and
though au infant isineajuible of forming
abstract ideas, wo need not doubt that
the variety of new and bewildering im
pressions must overtask its scnaorium
in a few hours. Nnrsclinga should
therefore be permitted to sleep to their
full satisfaction, weakly Inibics, espe
cially, need sleep more than food, and it
is the safest plan never to disturb a
child's slumber while the regularity of
his breathing indicates the healthful
nos of his repose; there is little danger
of his "oversleeping" himself in a
moderately warmed, well-ventilated
room. Never mind abont meal times;
hunger will awaken him at the right
moment, or tench him to make np for
lost time. Three or four nursings in

Among the most curious and interest
ing of the proverbs which have sprung
from the common sayings and ex
periences of the people of various
nation* are those relating to the weather.
We have a good number of them in our
own language, and lest they may lie
forgotten in these days when any one
may learn at break fast, from the tele

in the moming the rainbow will appear
