HOW LONG SHOULD ONE SLEEP? This is a question which can only be an- swered generally, says the editor of the People's Friend. No hard and fast rule can be laid down-indeed, every man must be a rule to himself. One thing is clear, that nature intends everyone to sleep until the effects of waking are dissipated, and until bodily energy is renovated. In childhood, when the constructive processes of growth involve a large expenditure of energy, sleep is long and profound; in vouth much sleep is still needed; in middle-age, 'when decay and repair alone require to be balanced, less sleep is required; in old age, when repair is slightly and imperfectly effected, more sleep is desirable. The duration of sleep is also largely influenced by sex, Ifempeament, occupa- tion, season, climate, &c. The true grade is the recuperation of the energies. This is indicated by a feeling of well-being on awakening.
