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
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-

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-
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.
