The Penalty of Fame. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Star — 4 August 1877
The Penalty of Fame. Thc greatest of living English philo sophers has just issued thc following circular : ' Mr. Herbert-Spencer regrets that he miist take measures for diminishing the amount of his correspondence. Being' prevented by-his state of health from writing xuoro than a short time daily, he makes but slow progress in the work he has undertaken, and this slow progress is made slower by the absorption of his time in answering those who write to him. Letters inviting him to join com mittees, to attend meetings or otherwise to further some public object; letters requesting, interviews and autographs ; loiters asking opinions and explanations, these, together with presentation copies of books that have to bc acknowledged, entail hindrances which, small as they may be individually, arc collectively very serious-very serious, at least, to one whose hours of work-arc ! so narrowly limited.

Tlie Bed considered as a Garment. There is still one of our garments to be considered Which generally is not re garded as such. I mean thc bed-that piece of clothing in which we spend such a great part of our time. It is equally indispensable to the sick and the healthy, and at all times it was considered as a sign of bitterest want if a man had no. place lo lay his head. . The bed is not only a place of rest, it is especially our sleeping-garment, and has often to make up for privations endured during the day and thc day's work, and to give us strength [for to-inorrow. You know all thu different substances and materials used for it. These aro thc sumo as our garments aro made from. Like them, thc bed must be airy and wann at thc same time. We warm thc bcd by our body just as wc wann our clothes, and tile lied warms the air which is con tinually llowing through it from .below upward.
