Sine .Million Wlteiiea Biirnfrt! Sprenger computes that during tho Christian era no fewer than nine million witches were immolated. In En- 'gland, the last execution for witchcraft took place in 1710, but in-Illinois as late as 1780 to 1700, several unfortunates were put to death. This is a terrible rellection ou the boasted enlightenment of the age; but we must not be over-censorious, while we daily see friends going down to death, ignorance or prejudice preventing the use of remedies which might save ti»em. Many a cold runs into consumption, while indigestion and impure blood debilitates the system, inviting fatal attacks, when the use of I)r. Pierce's Golden Medical Oiscpvory would have ensured health and happiness. Do hot delude yourself into the belief that you are an exception as far as sleep is concerned; the nominal average of sleep is eight hours. ~ •- Interesting Fact8. Changes in the brain and nerves are the most common cause ef disease. Their intluence on the body is wonderful. Shame flashes the palest and fear blanches the rosiest cheek and whitens the blackest hair in a night. Worry causes dyspepsia and hastens old age.

The primary cause of wakefuliions la an increase in tho quantity of blood circulating In the brain; hoiicu uny fimdition or cause capable of inducing this state of thn cerebral circulation may give ria« to it. Aa these causes ore more or kiss under tlio control of tho individual, It k* important that they should be generally known. First—Excessive and lonp; continued intellectual action or powerful mental emotions. Second—Those positions of the body which tend to impede the flow of blood from the brain and ut the same time do not obstruct Its passage to the brain. Many physicians havo noticed the connection existing • between bodily position and wakefulncsi. It U evident that tho recumbent position is more conducive to A state of congestion of the brain than the erect or semi-erect. Dr. Forbes Winslow, Dr. Hammond and othur physicians have noticed on increa.-jo iu tho number.and intensity of hallucinations of insane patienta, or persons suffering from delirium tromens, as soon as they assume the rocumbout position. These patients have been found to sleep quietly for some timo lu an armchair, but to bo annoyed by hallucinations us soon as thoy lie down.

Ho rcnlly was entitled to a great deal of credit for tho courage and stendfn-itnesH of* purpose with which IIH had toiled to mnko his way through the .Uilious university course. Ho had done it alonu, and nt tho snmu timo managed to help his widowed mother in keeping what had provwl to be a very gaunt nnd persistent wolf from the door, liut tho world, as is its custom, had ln-en somewhat Mow in recognizing his genius; so that when tho winter term of school at Weston was offenxl to him, ho was only too glail to accept it, hoping that meantime something bettor would como to him. He picked up his hat, with some sense of disgrace, nnd strode on io the schoolhouse, It was the eventful "llrst day," and it must be confessed that Joel's heart for a minute sank very low ns ho saw tho roguish face disappear 'through the door of the building which was to be his casllo for tho next few months. Ho had . a dim foreboding that trouble was in store for him. But shortly his courage rallied, and with lips closed a lit- tlo more firmly than usual, he stepped to his desk. ...... -----------Nan, with, innny n girlish giglo, wns relating her adventure to a circlo of admirers. "The idea of a youug[fellowliko him bringing a tall hat down hero. My! how mad ho looked when the thing went over tho fence I Well, it was rather mean after all ; but I'll never see him agaiiu rdon T t~know who ho Is. Some city chap, I s'poso, down to look at tho natives I" Just then the door oiK'ned and tho professor walked in. If Joel could have seen tho glorious crimson which swept Nan's face, ho might havo known how poorly prized was her victory. But ho was busy and had almost forgotten tho episode a moment later. - It was brought back again, however when ho chancivl to glance at Nan. Once more the flood of crimson dyed her cheeks, but sho buried her face in a boo!; and ivnitvd until it had vanished. That winter Joel Kherwood learned many valuable les-sons. It was a gocxl school for him. Ho know more tilxmt hiniself when tho term was over than ho ever had before. He put away the silk hat, and wondon>d why he ever should havo worn it down to Weston. By. this timo he did not feel himself so very much superior to tho people there as ho had felt. They proved to bo kind hearted and intelligent, nnd ho liked them better tho more he know them. He had found Nan a disturbing element in hlslittlo dominion. Not that sho meant to do anything wrong; but she had too much mischief in her nature not to be at -the bottom of many a project which brought tho new teacher into disrepute. Sho never pro- tended that sho had no hand in these plots. Thero was no deceit in Nan. Whatever she did was so frank that Joel's reproof was tempered by a strange feeling^vhich caused him to forgive tho spirit which prompted Nan's action — a feeling he knew not how to analyze. Once, when she penetrated some especially annoying trick on him, and he had met her out of school hours on the way home, her pretty smile and look jjf respect had driven every spark of auger from his heart nnd he broke out: - "Oh, Nanl Why will you" But she hud pulled her. hand out of his, and fled before tho words were out ot bis mouth. And Nan — she was the same thoughtless glrli'as far as Joel could see, as tho weeks sped quickly by and brought them nearer the end of the term. She led the boys and girls iu every game. She could outekato them; not a boy dared to challenge her to a race on the ico for fear of the defeat he knew would await him. Her happy laugh rippled everywhere. Not a boy but would have risked his life for her. Not a girl but fled to her In tiniD of trouble, for sho was ever to them a champion equal to every emergency. To all she was simply "Nan"— laud; loving, mirthful "Nan." About tho time Joel's school closed, the river, which had been frozen all winter, began to break up, and the ice gave signs of go ing out. Hore and there groat Beams appeared, and a warning roar sounded through the valley. Some of the older boys who had explored the stream higher up, very sagely predicted that there would be trouble before ulght; but this brought to Joel's mind littls fear. He thought tho stream might rise, and carry away the ice, but that would be all. lie knew nothing about the fearful gorges that sometimes dammed the river, and flooded the entire country for miles around. At noon the report come that a gorge was forming a short jlistunce above the school- bouse. Thero never before had boon such a pile of Ice crowded Into that port of the river, and water was beginning to flow over tho valley. A heavy rain set tn, falling for hours in tori-wits. Still Joel hod no Iden what danger was impending. This was iiu first ex[*rience with the river, aud when some of his pupils begged to go home, he thought it best for them to wait until the storm was less terrible or tluir parouts camo for them. This hitter thing hoppuned uoonor Mian he had thought likely, aud some of tho sturdy yemncn came for their little ones quite a whilij i*eforo> thu usual time for their riiamib.sal, and gravely advi.sod Jivl to close for the day, as thoy feared truuhlo from the gorge up the river.

She wns hore, thoro, everywhere, chooring tho younger ones in a most motherly way. How this crisis linil transformed her I Joel noticed more than ever now what a strong fnco she had. Ho had always thought her pretty; now a look had come upon hor features which indicated tho spirit which makes women heroic. Sho hnd liecomo a calm, self possessed woman. While Jool wns thinking of this, through tho dusk camo a Injat manned by two farmers. It slowly pushed its wny through the current, fighting hnrd against wind, ico nnd drifting wood, but it was not long before tho rescuers reached tho imperiled house. Joel could no longer open tlio door without lotting in a little ocean. Tiny rivulets were spreading over tho floor. The only way to get the children into tho bont was through nn open window. Not more than half tho numlier wero ablo to got Into tho boat. The rest must wait. "Hadn't you better get in now, Mr. Professor !" asked ono of tho men when tho boat wna ready to push olTfor tlio bank. "Not as long as there is any ono else to go, Zeb," was Joel's (Inn response ns ho gave the boat n Rtemly shove away from tho house. A half hour of susponso passed. Then tho dim outline of tho bout apiwared through tho gloom again. "Tho boat is full enough," said Jool, ns ho tucked the last ono of tho children securely Into tho boat. "Tho load would bo too heavy nnd trouble might como of it if I should got in. I hope th» worst is ovor, anyhow. Even if the water rises two foot more, I~can- still find n way to-l;eqr out of it till morning perhnps." " 'Tain't just tho thing to leavo you hero," said one of the men, hesitatingly. "Oet in and we'll got through all right, I guoss." "No," was tho quick resivinso. "tin ahead. If you can como for me, nil right. If not"— Ho paused. Something in' Nan's eyes awoke a tumult in his.brenst.. A strange light shono in them, nml as Joel loaned down from the window toward her, in answer to n slight movement of her hand, sho whis|«'rod: Mr. Sherwood, I'm sorry I'vo made you so much trouble this winter.
