You often hear a person complain of his head feeling heavy after a i long sleep. As a inciter of met, his head is considerably lighter, and his legs and feet just that. much heavier, when lie gets "p than when he went to bed. Kxperimcnls have shown that if a man goes sleep 011 a bed sus pended exactly at the middle point of iiis weight his head begins to tip :;lo\vly up and his feel go down. This is due to the fact that when we sleep the blood in the brain goes oft to the other parts of the body. The moment the brain wakes to life again it draws the blood back. Another of the curious facts brought to light by scientists who are fond of trying lo solve the mystery of sleep is that when one is fast asleep some part of his brain or several parts of it may at tho same time be awako. A man may walk, talk, sing, or solvo mathe matical problems, and jot at the same time . be safely in the land of nod. It serins hard or impossible to dp eido what part of the brain renlly docs sleep.
