Daily Helps to Health
By-OBOROK T, DUTLBR. A. M M. D,
Many of us are victims of
proiperlty and competition In
business and society. We tlvs
at high pressure; letters and
telegrams keep us constantly
alert. Express trains or auto
mobiles hurry us miles away
from home In the morning and
back again In the evening, and
the pressure of competition Is so
great that few men think that
they can Mfford to take their
work easily or to modify the
constant strain of It by breaks
of a day or two at a time. Add
to this excess In eating and Is It
any wonder that your appre
hension Is no longer scute, ycur

constipated and have a bad
taste In the mouth In the morn

up? Many people sutler from
too much business ir society
and not enough health. When
such Is the case, they should cut
out business and society for a
time and come down to.nuih and
milk and first principles. There
Is little escape for one who
drugs himself Into business or
society. When the E string of

tight you mutt bring the rest of
