REST FOR WOMEN'S NERVES
r Pa Pa T M pa Pu Mi Mi p pa M pa
I,cnrn how to do nothing. Practice
cultivating complete rest. Any woman
enn do it. Hcgln by completely relax
Ire every ncno and muscle for flic
minutes a day.
If you are a homo woman, go to your
own room and gtvo orders that in no
event are you to bo disturbed. Draw
the curtains and close ttio door; lie
down, If possible.
Say to joursclf: "I hao left caro
ond worry and anxiety outsldo my
door. I will rest my soul and body ab
solutely for these few precious mo
ments." Wlde-awako repose, if complete, will
prove Incstlmnbly restful. A few min
utes of absolute relaxation, llteially
thinking of nothing, will greatly re
vitalize the ncrioUB woman.
With regard to the amount of sleep
required for women an author of re
I.utc sas well that one aspect of this
subject Is frequently overlooked. Kx-
FLOWERS FOR FUNERALS
"The open barouche filled with fli.w
art, sometimes seen preceding tho

the hearse, some of which, at least, aro
too big to stand up In a closed car

pieces they aro sometimes all arrang

play that never falls to attract atleii
"from this conspicuous display ot
flowers, which Ib ono most likely to be
seen at the funeral of n. person of for

changes down to no display at all, as

the flowers are bo many as to require

n.any caBcs tho flowers can all bo
placed in tho hearse; but nowadays
often when there aro many flowers
t'jere aro carried to tho cemetery only
such beautiful r appropriate pieces
nr can actually bo laid upon the coffin
"It used to be that all tho flowers re
ceived at a funeral were sent to tho
cemetery nnd placed upon tho grave,
to waste and wither, nnd they wero
subject also to pilfering hands. Now

Whatever may bo tho explanation as
to why smoking In tho form of cigar
ettes has becomo bo enormously popu
lai during tho past decode, thero can
he no denying that popularity from tho
tact that It has led to a very sharp In
dustrial war. Millions of public mon
ey havo been Invested In cigarette
making companies Cigarettes nro tho
biiLJect of advertisement In the dally
pepers on an enormous scale utterly
incomparable with that on which to
bacco nnd cigars aro advertised.
Tho reason Is not far to Beck; th
ilgarctto Is cheap, and, more than that
It la a convenient form of "smoke."
Tho good cigar Is not cheap, It Is com
paratively bulky, and It takes somo
tlmo to finish. Tho plpo must bo kept
clean. It requires to bo filled, and a
I-ouch must bb carried to contain tho
ti bacco. Tho cigarette is ready to
smoko, scores can bo carried In tin
pocket, and ono can bo smoked in a
snatched quarter of an hour. Tho cig
arette Is, therefore, popular, probably
mainly becauso of Its convenience.
That being so it Is important to con
sider whether clgaretto smoking la
more Injurious from tho point of view
of health than Is tho smoking of a ci
gar or a pipe. To begin with, a much
milder tobacco can bo smoked In cig
arettes than In tho pipe, and so far

of confidence, however, did not prove
sufficient In all eases, for a man may

concealed in It, ond therefore It be

The usually mild tobacco in the cigar
