statuary. To my mind, rest is getting away from mental and physical fatigue. Anything that kindles the tire in body and mind is restful, whether it be sleep, athletics, or what not. Wliile every human needs a change from his routine work and routine home life, my suggestions shall be for those that are destined to earn their daily bread by brain work. Every organ in the body needs a rest, especially the brain, the most delicate of all and the most worked. It being the central office, all messages must go to and from it. Not only all conscious, but all unconscious, efforts must center here, for in- stance, looking properly after the nutrition of the body. Hence this is an organ that needs rest above all. Wliile sleep is the most restful of all, still it is not all that is necessary. We must have change of scene and action. As the stomach must not have the same food three times a day, and day after day, so the brain must have its different brain foods in the line of different thoughts, scenes, and actions. Wliat will relax one will not another, so we must choose for ourselves, but all must relax. Once a week and once a year is my favorite pre- scription. Take one day a week and one month a year, everything else being equal. Failing to reach this mark, take one day a week and one week a year-two weeks better, three still better, four enough for anybody, and I consider just right. Even a horse is sent to pasture, and how often is the garden spaded. A rejuvenated brain that pre- sides over everything certainly sends rejuvenation all along the line. I firmly believe if the head of every family had the art of diversion as a part of his study, and had his family working in harmony with him, there would be more happiness in the world. Most people consider the expense, but when viewed from the standpoint that it is a health insur- 37

ance and you are simply piling up mental and phy- sical reserve force as you would pile up dollar force, I feel it is one of the grandest savings that the human is heir to. Besides, when we see the shining examples of multi-millionaires shuffling off and leaving their dol- lars behind. The theater is a great relaxation to me-the Or- pheum, a light grand opera, a comic opera, or any real good play where the play is good and carried out by good acting, any theatrical performance at all where there is not too much work carrying musical scores or plots along with the play, of where the under- takers are not working overtime. A good book, a friendly game of cards, dancing, visiting, or whatever suggests itself in each individual case-all this for once a week. For once a year, away from all accustomed work and home life to something different. Living in the city, away to the country, and vice versa. We can figure goods, houses, and lots in dollars and cents, but unfortunately we cannot compute what it means to the body to have nature renovate its interior while putting on a coat of brown on its exterior. So I say again and again, rest as we go, and go as we rest. As we well know, a person can be at rest and still in motion-a passenger lying on a deck chair while the ship is in motion. Again, a person can be in motion and still at rest- a brain worker playing golf. By following this prescription, which is not hard to take, you will ward off that last friendly, Horal suggestion whose name is Rest. 38
