well, and there i- n ache or pain in the body,
uiil--s it be eau-cd by accident. Therefore a
very nn rt int matter tor any intelligent individ
ual to c jrif idvT and try to uri'Jer-tand, who desires
htaltii ai.d 1 ri2 life, i the future of the blood,
and how t keep it iu healthful condition.
rule 2. Sol to Overeat.
You inu-'t not continue to eat until an oppress
ive fulness in the stomach compels you to stop
your feeding. If you overeat, or gorge your
ctouiaeb, especially after hard work, or fatigue of
any kind, you check or disturb the circulation of
the blood: you cause it to cog, or congest in
eouic part of the bsdy, and in consequence you
may have an inflammation of the bowels, or a
bad headache, or be struck dead with appoplexy.
Or, if no immediate serious attack of any kind
takes place, you may be sure ttiatyou have, by
your gluttony, vitiated your blo.jd and injuriously
afl'.-cted your health in some way. By overeating,
your skin will be affected, and break out in pim
ples and blotches: your eyesight will be weaken
ed; your bowels will be constipated; the action
of your heart and your liver will be deranged;
and consequently bad blood will be made, which
will show itself in aches and fevers, and various
I diseases of the body.

ut'LE 3. Do not Slarre your Body,
Or pinch your stomach, by eating too little.
Never go without food for twenty-four, or even
twelve, hours, voluntarily; as is the Case sometimes
with some Hawaiian. This does not happen, or
rarely so, because no food can be obtained; but
ignorance of the ! very often because those who fast are too uegli-
fore a respecter of your neighbor's rights and
welfare, as well as your own, take a shovel or
spade in band, from time to time, and throw a
iittle fresh earth into the pic of your privy;
enough to cover its surface, and then you will
stop all offensive odor, and the outflow of any in
jurious exhalation, calculated to poison the blood
of yourself, your children, or of your neighbors.
And when the pit is full, dig a new one; you will
thereby promote your own health, and save your
eoul from the blood-guiltiness which must attach
to every man, who carelessly allows an offensive
disease-breeder to remain undisturbed in his
back yard. This subject is more fully treated in i
the article on 'Uut-dor Cleanliness.
Now, a few words about j
m i p. .1. f.nhnr or FliFrriXf.
This rule, of course, does not apply to Hawaii
ans, who work hard on plantations, or their own
kuleanas of land, but to those who pass the work-
j ing time in loitering about, or in lolling upon
mats. Let such remember, that, as stagnant wa
ter generates unwholesome slime, and still air
j breeds injurious fungi, so does indolence and inac- )
tion of the body give occasion to many diseases.
It is spokeu of as a curse, that man must earn his
food by the sweat of his brow, but it is a blessing.
Labor keeps us from inany temptations. Labor
greatly diminishes the influence of vice. The
vices of sexual impurity would not be eo preva
lent in Hawaii if Hawaiian women labored more.
The most or the women of Europe and America
work very hard, and they are virtuous and multi
ply their race. But llawaian women generally j
idle away their time, are easily tempted, yield, i

undergo a long fast, until the pains of hunger
have made it a necessity to prepare something to
cat. The frcouent irnawin'is and nausea of a too
j long empty stomach, will cause vitiation of blood i their b.idies to abuse and diseafC, become barren, J
and disease, as well as cramming of an over-fuli and dcleat the hope ol their race and nation. In !
