Habit is everything. We have all lionnl
tho story ol the man who slept above a
baker's oven for twenty years, then changed
his lodgings, but had to go back to the oven
before be could sleep. A caso illustrating
tho same princtnlo is reported in Ohio. A
city man, accustomed to lodge on ouo of the
noisiest streets, visited a county friend.
Too much quiet disturbed his lest at night.
His friend felt for his distress, and said he
would try and relieve it. Accordingly he
went to a neighbor's und procureJ a bass
drum, which he bent under the euest's bed
room window, and hnj bis boy run u squeak
ing wheelbarrow up nud dowu on the porch,
while his wife pltiyed on the piano, and his
servant girl pounded on the chamber dour
with tho tongs. In this mauner the sufferer
was enabled to get two or three hours o'
quite refreshing sleep, though it was heavy
on tho family.

A 'J'hi llliig Adventure.
Tho Cleveland Herald, of Monday siyh:
On Saturday evening u thrilling adventure
beiel the messenger in charge of tho car of
the American Express Company, ou tbo
night express train from Erio to this city.
Shortly ufter leaving the former place l:e
discovered to bis consternation that the cou
tents of tin car were ou lire. The car was
packed full of Iheu.-unl assortment of express
heights, consisting principally of dry guoJs
and other merchandise, and the bell-rope
counecliug with tho engine bad been passed
over the lop of thecal', lioth ends of tho
cur were crammed with packages, only: a
small vacant space being left iu the cuutie

To open tho doors of tho cur would be
