Bad Bed Habits. We spend about one-third of our lives in lied. A person who has reached fiO has. or shouid haw. spent twenty ypars in bed. Wo are so particular about re taining healthy positions during two thirds of our lives, why be careless about the other third ? Many bad habits and bad positions are formed during sleep. -.Some assume an attitude which cramps the chest so that respira tion is not full aud complete. This does much harm to health. The shoulders should not be drawn forward then, nor the arms folded tightly over the chest. For young people a narrow bed is pre ferable, '? so that they will not have to sprawl themselves over a large .space, nor be able to assume a dozen grotesque shapes. The pillow shouia be small aud hard. The bed clOtUJug should be light but warm, a«d allow the air to pass through, it f reply1.' Jf Hie air 1n a bed. which soon-'be'iSwiiPJT saturated with the per spiration from -our bodies, does not pass off, it makes us uneasy, and sound sleep Is Imp...

And it is a rare thing to worry a fly with too. A fly will stRnd off and curse this invention till language utterly fails him. I have j seen them do it hundred!) oF times. j I like to dine in the air on the back porch in Bummer, and so I would not b? wi'.hont this portable net for any thing. When you g^t it hoisted, ihe flies have to wait for the second table.

'I was thinking of an incident that hap pened over on the West Side a while ago. There is a row of houses in the street up there that is rather close together. One day a man who lives along in the middle of the row and he straightway went down town and hired the paiutere to do the job. His roof was one of the fancy-shingle affairs and he wanted it painted red. When the time came to paint the roof the three men who were working on the job fixed a ladder upon it and took places on the ladder, one at the peak, one in the middle and one at the eaves.
