THE1 ORIGIN OF DKEAM&. The fuUest examination into the natuns snA origin of dreams has been made by M. Moresa, the Frenoh scientist. He divided dreams into the dreams of health and the dreams that are ths result of a diseased state of mind or body. With regard to the latter, it need only be remarked that persistent dreaming is one of the most is- variable symptoms of insanity, and as it is a psychological faot that genius is near allied to madness men of genius must be expected to dream more than ordinary men. With regard to the dreams of health, they are the result of as imperfect state of sleep, according as we look at it. It is obvious that the mind of the otarto man that is constantly occupied with masy oohemes and thoughts is more liable to b* awake when his body is asleep than that of the foilard, whose mind is often asleep when his body is awake. Thus the sleep of the plough- boy has become proverbial on account of its um tfsturbed nature. In most cases a man of lively Imagination and r;uick brain is uudoabtodlf toore liable to dream than the dullard.
