On Getting-up in the Morning. Copybook morality lias had many severe buffets of late from the hand of science, but none more cruel than its recent attaclc on early rising. , 'Early to hed-iind early to rise' Is n closnia that may. claim antiquity with those of religion, ltiuiu ;yoc: one- oi.- ouL-nicmc.-ir journals actually denounces it as ' ma tutinal niania.'
