TIME TO QUIT WORK,
Fatigue Symptoms and Tests
That Should Be Heeded.
NATURE GIVES THE WARNING
Tomorrow's Work Will Suffer if You
Overdrive Today-The Price a Man
Is Compelled to Pay if He Keeps on
the Pressure Too Long.
When we have set out on a piece of
muscular work or head work we might
expect to find a steady, regular in
crease In the fatigue that resulted
from i-so much work, so much fa
tigue. But that is not the case. The
"fatigue curve" Is not a striight line
sloping up from one corner of the
chart diagonally to the other. Instead
it goes sharply upward at the start.
Then for a long distance it runs along
on an approximate level, and then it
takes a sharp upward turn again.
The level stage-the plateau of hard,
normal working power, where the cost
in energy doesn't vary perceptibly-is
the "second wind."
You know how It is in long distance
ranning. At first the fatigue Increases
very rapidly. A man has to push him
self with all the will power he can
muster. Then all of a sudden it gets
easier. It seems as if he had tapped
a big, new supply of energy, and he
can keep running for a long time with
out a:iy great increase in his feeling
of fatigue. At last he reaches a point
where the exertion tells hard again.
Fatigue p1les up terribly fast now, so
fast tat unless the runner knows just
how rauch he Is good for and has made
careful calculations he is likely to be
"all ia" before he gets to the end.
Every step makes an inroad on his re
serve energy. The last spurt costs
more than all the rest together.
If a man has covered his distance
withcut touching this final turn of the
fatigue curve he will get zested in a
reasoaably short time and be able to
go over the course again. But if in
stead he has to keep on, teeth set, eyes
bulging, "hugging his corncobs" until
he rolls over on the ground, it may
take weeks for him to get into good
form again. In a big race naturally
he's got to be ready to do %:hat.
There are emergencies in everybody's
life when the ,merely prudent thing
isn't the right thing. If a house is on
fire and a family on the top floor is in
danger and you're the only person on
the -premises you can't stand calmly
aside and calculate your fatigue curve.
There's a necessity for acion-at any
cost whatever, even life.
A man may have a big proposition to
put through, some important-combina
tion to effect, a new movement to get
under way. Perhaps he Is the only
person who knows the whole situation.
Success may depend upon him. In
such. a case he must let mere prudence
go by the board, and he must stand
ready to pay the price, too when that's
But such emergencies are not every
day matters. Tomorrow we are go
ing to have another day's business to
attend to, and the probability Is that
It will be just as important as today's.
Consequently we have no right to over
dris e ourselves today, for the price of
it 'will be taken out of the quality of
tomorrow's work. We have done
enough when we have come in sight
of t:hat last costly lap. It's the time
A great deal of interesting informa
tioni about the nature of fatigue has
been made available through the ergo
graph, an ingeaious recording appara
tus devised by Professor Angelo Mos
so, a great Italian scientist. It works
something after this fashion: You lay
your hand, back down, on a little ta
ble, and to the end of one finger is at
tached a cord which connects hori
zontally over a pulley with a small
hanging weight The motion of clos
Intr the finger lifts the weight, and as
the effort is repeated over and over
again the fatigue symptoms in the fin
ger become clear and can be observed
.d recorded In detail.
Now, one of the important discover
ies that Professor Mosso has made is
that if you keep raising the weight un
til your finger Is exhausted it will take
just about two hours to rest it-that
is, In two hours you can do the same
amount of finger work over again-and
the least bit more.
You would imagine from this that if
the experiment were repeated at the
end of one hour instead of two you
could do just half the amount of work.
But it's only one-quarter as much!
That's the price of work on top of
fatigue. One unfatigued man Is to his
work as four semifatigued men to the
same work. Using all the strength
you have, you can't begin to get nor
mal results, and the strain on will and
nervous energy Is terrific. Carrying a
thing through on "nerve" is the cost
liest business a man can indulge in.
Some people, especially those of
nervous makeup, find it hard to tell
when the stopping point has been
reached-that is, just where the divid
ig line comes between energy funds
available for investment and a capital
which cannot legitimately be tamper
el with. If they get interested in
teir work they lose sight og every
aing else and are going on sheer
nerve before they realize it
Though fatigue symptoms vary
greatly In different people, it may be
worth while to mention a few of them

With some people a sure sign is the
increased circulation of blood in the
ears or cheeks. Some people have
queer feelings in the pit of the stom
ach-not nausea, but something sug- I
gestive of it.
One of the most reliable tests is the
control test, holding the arms out hori
zontally at the sides and noticing
whether or not the fingers tremble.
The fatigue condition raises the nerve
pressure gate and allows flowovers
from one nerve into another. Normal
ly a nervous impulse goes along its
nerve directly to the point of strain.
but when you are fatigued the stimu
lus spreads into other nerves as well
and is not distinctly transmitted.
Sir Francis Galton, the great statis
tician. says that the best test he knows
is that of restlessness, shown in mus
cular movements. Many times, he
says, he has sat in a position where
he could watch an audience as it lis
tened to some long scientific memoir.
He took notes of how people acted
under the strain of protracted atten
tion-how often they moved. At the
beginning of the hour they would sit
quietly; then they would begin to
move on the average of once every
four seconds, then every three seconds,
and he says that it is possible to trace
right through any audience every de
gree of fatigue by the number of mus-_
cular movements made.
He has simply put together mathe
matically some data that are familiar
to all of us. We have all seen-and,
alas, been a part of-an audience that
was trying to endure the last half
hour of an unendurable speech. Ev
erybody was shifting his position,
crossing one leg over the other or back
again, moving the fingers, playing with
watch charm or chain, yawning,
twitching, folding programme, wiping
eyeglasses, adjusting back hair, twist
ing mustache. Those were all fatigue
A. loss of self control in small things
-that's the symptom in different terms,
and another name for it is irritability.
At first it seems strange that this
undue sensitiveness to slight stimuli
should be so sure an effect of fatigue;
but it means that the resistance gates
are down and we become aware of
sensations pouring in from all sides,
slight sensations that ordinarily we
take no notice of because-by the laws
of attention-they are quietly shut out
from our consciousness. But when our
attention is tired-no longer focused,
but scattering-all these slight nerve
pricks attack us insistently and we
cannot neglect them.
A noise that you will not hear when
you are rested will be. perfectly dis
tracting when you are tired. You will
go over and shut a window; you will
walk around aimlessly; you will swear
at the faint crackle of a distant grapho
phone. If there is a light above you
at an evening lecture it will hurt your
eyes almost beyond endurance. In
stead of making the nervous system a
less responsive instrument, fatigue
makes it more responsive-more re
sponsive, but less serviceable.
Every man who is anxious to hit his
job between the eyes should make a
study of his own fatigue curve, and
he should put the moral of it to heart.
To know when it's time to quit-and
to quit when it's time-is one of the
first lessons in the primer of efficien

Mountain Terraces In Luzon.
Governor General Smith of the Phil
ippines recently made a tour of the
mountain provinces of northern Luzon,
chiefly inhabited by pagan tribes. On
his return to Manila he said: "The
journey thr.ough the mountain country
was a revelation. I have never seen
such cultivation as we'saw in the
mountains. Those people have ter
raced the mountains in some instances
a thousand feet high, and every bit of
the land is under cultivation.
"I do not believe there is anything in
the world that can equal the manner
in which the people of the mountains
have made their country productive.
It certainly surpasses anything I have
ever seen. The terraces in Japan are
pygmies compared with it. The earth
and stone were brought for miles, and
the most wonderful part about it is
that the terraces are as solid and sub
stantial as if they were part of the

A London newspaper some years ago
contained an account of a strange sort
of contest which two noblemen got up
for their own amusement. It consist
ed of matching a flock of turkeys
against a flock of geese for a race on
the London and Norwich road in the
middle of the last century. The tur
keys would insist upon flying up into
the roadside tre~es to roost, while the

The windmill is not yet superseded
as an engine driven by the power of
"unbought wind." In Holland they
are used for sawing timber, cutting
tobacco, grinding trass and draining
the polders. Holland has 10.000 wind
mills, each of which is said to drain
310 acres of land, at an average cost
of 1 shilling an acre a year. In Nor
folk they have been of inestimable
service for works of drainage on the
marsh lands. A fifteen horsepower
windmill erected at Faversham raised
in ten months 21,000,000 gallons of wa
ter from a depth of 100 feet, saving 1C0
tons of coal. In the United States
iron skeleton windmills were employed
to pump water for domestic purposes
long before they were applied to irri
gation work. Powerful milhis have
given farmers living on the plaims a
cheap source of powe'r for various
purposes, among other things to intro
duce town luxuries into their homes.

as attested by the emergence from it
of the moth.
Dr. Wissler explains in Discovery
that the whirlwind meant by the Da
kota is the harmless little whirl one
sees upon the plains every clear day.
The long, slender column betraying its
presence makes a profound impression
upon the Indian.
In the whirlwind somehow and
somewhere resides the power to pro
duce confusion of mind. Thus it was
natural that its aid should have been
invoked by the warriors on going into
battle, for to be as intangible, invisible
and destructive as the wind was their
one great desire. When a man loses
his presence of mind he is said -to have
been overcome by the whirlwind.
A cocoon of a moth taken with a
portion of the twig upon which it was
found and wrapped in an eagle plume
or down is regarded as a perpetual
prayer to the power of the whirlwind.
This prayer is not only symbolized by
the genuine cocoon worn upon the per
son, but also by its image in stuffed
buckskin or by its sketched or paint
The Blackfeet see a relation between
the moth- and sleep and appeal to it
when they desire to have dreams, for
with them power is always conferred
in a dream. In the case of unrequited
love the whirlwind is invoked. It is
believed that it can confuse the mind
of a girl to such a degree that she
cannot resist the pleadings of the en
Some of the Dakotas believe that the
bear controls the power of the whirl
wind and that a prayer must be ad
dressed to the animal for the assist
ance of the whirlwind. Sometimes a
person will receive power from the
bear in a dream or vision and thus
come to have the aid of the whirlwind
because of the conceived relation be
tween the two. Finally the power of
the whirlwind is also supposed to be
associated with the buffalo and the
A deity of equal importance among
the Indians of the plains is the thun
der, which usually is associated with
military exploits. While the Dakotas
generally regard the thunder as a bird,
usually symbolized by the eagle, they
sometimes speak of it as a horse, a
man or -a dog.
The horse has always appealed to
them as a creature of mysterious ori
gin and in many cases is assumed to
have been given by the thunder. In
any event there is an association in
their minds between the power of a
warhorse and the thunder.
The thunder is often represented by
a zigzag or wavy line, usually in red.
But Dr. Wissler says that this symbol
really represents the power of the
phenomenon in the abstract, because
the Indian lacks the conception-of a'
force in nature, so that the symbol is
also a general sign for the presence of
mysterious supernatural power.
Whistles made from the leg and
wing bones of eagles are employed by
the Dakotas to symbolize the cry of
the eagle as a representative of the
thunder bird. In battle or sometimes
in stress of great trial they are sound
ed to summon the aid of the power of
the thunder. As a rule, a zigzag line
is scratched down the sides of these

FLAGS OF NEW YORK.
National Emblems Under Which the
City Has Been Ruled.
The first European visitor to Man
hattan Island was Henry Hudson, who
in 1G00 sailed up the river now bearing
his name. The flag rndex which he
sailed was that of the Dutch East In
dia company, which was the flag of
the United Provinces of the Nether
lands, orange, white and blue arranged
in three equal horizontal stries, in the
center of the white stripe being the
letters "A. 0. C."--Algemeene Oost
Indise compagnie (General East India
From the time of the discovery no
visitor came into these waters of
which there is record until 1612, when
Manhattan was settled under the East
India company which continued in
possession unti 1022, when the govern
ment fell into the hands of the West
India company. The flag of the Dutch
West India company was the same as
that of its predecessor, save that it
bore the letters "G. W. C."-Gooetro
yeerde West Indise compagnie (Privi
leged West India company).
This was the dominant flag till 1664,
when the island was surrendered to
the English, and the union jack (cross
es of England and Scotland) of Great
Britain supplanted the tricolor of Hol
land, and the name of New Amster
dam was changed to New York. The
union jack at present is derived from
the union of the three crosses of St
George, St Andrew and St Patrick,
adopted in 1801, when the act of union
with Ireland was passed.
In the month of 'July, 1673, the
Dutch again took possession of the
city, which they occupied until Nov.
10, 1674, when by virtue ,of a treaty
of peace between England and. Hol
land the union jack again floated over
From this time there was no inter
ruption in the supremacy of the Eng
lish until the year 1689, when the
memorable rule of Leisler, speedily -
terminated by his death, occurred.. He
was a warm supporter of William and
M1ary, and it is possible that while he
held possession of the fort the ag of
William,- not then -proclaimed king of
England, might have floated over New
York. But there is no record- of this.
Were it so, however, it could have
been but for a very brief -period, and
the English flag waved undisputed un
til the era of the American Revolution.
At the beginning of the Revolution
here, as in New England, the people,
although aggrieved, were loyal, and
upon the same day, June 25, 1775,
New York witnessed the double entry
of George Washington, just elected by
the provincial congress general -in
chief of the American forces and on
his way to take command at- Cam
bridge, and Tryon, the English gov
ernor, who had arrived the day before.
It was about this time that the first
raising of any but the English .fag in
New York occurred. Before this, In
deed, liberty poles had been raised
and cut down again, but now, March,
1775, a Union flag, with a red field,
was hoisted in New York upon the
liberty pole on the common, bearing
the inscription, "George Rex and-Athe
liberties of America," and upon the
other side "No popery."

no record which gives any positive
date as to the raising of the American

AN OPTICAL DELUSION.
The Story of a Martinet Colonel, a
Captain and a Sword.
The colonel, a rigid martinet, is sit
ting at the window of his room when,
looking out, he sees a captain crossing
the barrack yard toward the gate.
Looking at him closely, he Is shocked
to observe that the rules and regula
tions to the contrary notwithstanding,
the captain does not carry a sword.
"Captain!" he calls from the window.
"Hi, captain, step up to my room for
a moment, will you?'
The captain obeys promptly, borrows
a sword of the officer of the guard, the
guardroom being at the foot of the
stairs, and presents himself to the colo
nel in irreproachable dress. -
The colonel Is somewhat surprised to
see the sword in Its place and, having
to invent some pretext for callng his
stibordinate back, says, with some con- -
fusion: "Beg your pardon, captain, but
really I've forgotten what It was I
wanted to speak to you aboug. How
ever, it can't have been very impor
tant It'll keep. Good morning."
The captain salutes, departs, returns
the sword to Its owner and is makng
off across the barrack yard, where he
again comes within range of the colo
The colonel rubs his eyes, stares,
says softly to himself: "How in thun
der is this? He hasn't a sword to his
waist!" then calls aloud: "Captain!
Ho, captain! One moment, please!"
The captain returns, borrows the
sword again, mounts the stairs and en
ters the colonel's presence. His com

He has a sword; he sees it; he hears It
"Captain," he stammers, growing
very hot, "It's ridiculous, you know,

The captain salutes, departs, returns
the sword to its owner and makes for
the gate. As he crosses the barrack
yard the colonel calls his wife to his
side and says, "See that offier out.

The colonel's wife adjusts her eye

FIGHTING AGAINST SLEEP.
Experienc.~of a Traveler In Crossing
the Gobi Desert.
Many diffculties must the traveler
contend with when crossing the desert
of Gobi, and one of these is the almost
overwhelming desire to sleep. Hans
Doring writes in the North China
Daily News: "Hitherto I have thought
that traveling by carts over stony
roads and staying in Chinese inns at
night was the hardest thing a foreign
traveler in China was called upon to
endure, but since I have traveled with
a caravan of camels I have changed
my opinion. The monotony of the des
ert by day and the bed of camels' sad
dles at night, the evil smell of camels
and the slowness of their drivers and
the acrid, choking smoke of the little
fire on which one's food is cooked
none of these things is so trying to
the foreigners as the sleepiness which
attacks one in this high region. This
to me was a real torture. Traveling
through the cold night with no other
company than dull Chinese, who seem
to sleep while walking alongside the
camels or while sitting on their backs,
and being weighed down by heavy
sleepiness is the worst thing I have
"You sit on your horse and, in spite
of every effort, fall asleep. Presently
you wake up and find yourself on the
ground with your horse standing be
wildered at your side, wondering
whether you are alive or dead. Then
you try to keep yourself awake by
walking and talking a bit to the camel
drivers, but you soon find that they
are just as sleepy as yourself. A few
words are exchanged and then you are
too tired to open your mouth to talk
or even to think of anything but sleep,
sweet sleep. Oh, for just a few min
utes there at the roadside in the soft
sand! But, no, you must go on and
fight against this desire. It is too dan
gerous to sleep by the roadside on the
ground. The caravan cannot wait and
your servant would not watch over
you; he would soon fall asleep like
yourself. The wolves would then have
an easy time.
"Yet in spite of all this reasoning
you feel as if you were drawn to the
ground by the power of a thousand
strong magnets and soon yield to
sleep again. Suddenly your watchful
horse. whose reins you have kept
slung around your neck-this is a wise
thing to do-pulls up. starts and jerks
you wide awake. You jump up, not
knowing where you are for some.sec
onds, but you see your horse trembling
and realize that danger is near.
"For a few minutes you are fully
awake and feel glad and refreshed.
You jump on your horse and catch up
with the caravan, which has gone a
few ]i (a li is 054 yards) ahead.
"After another ten li or so sleep
creeps on again like a huge boa con
strictor embracing you in its irresisti
ble grasp. The same fight has then to
be fought over again. Then at last the
caravan arrives at the halting place
for the night."
A Dangerous Question.
"Would you marry again, George, if
I were to die?"
"You brute! You want the world to
believe that I'm such a bad wife you
would not want another!"-Houston
A wise man will desire no more than
he can get justly, use soberly, distrib
ute cheerfully and leave contentedly.
KNEW HUMAN NATURE.
Logic of the Man Who Fiddled In the
Midst of a Flood.
When Davy Crockett was on his way
from his Tennessee home to Texas to
fight for the new republic he rode over
land with some chance friends from
Little Rock to Fulton. One day they
were startled by hearing the high notes
of a distant violin playing a rollicking
air. Putting spurs to their horses, the
men hastened toward the sound and
soon observed several others running
through the fields in the same direc
tion. At last they came over the crest
of a ridge in view of the river and be
held the fiddler seated In the middle
of the flood in an almost submerged
buggy playing as fast as he could
shake the bow.
"Hello, there! Turn back!" shouted
the men who came through the field.
"I can't," replied the fiddler.
"But you've missed the ford. You'll
"I've known that for half an hour."
"What are you going to do?"
"Sit here till you chaps come out and
turn my horse the right way."
The horse was with difficulfy keeping
his footing and seemed about to be
swept away. One of the men who had
been attracted by the fiddling waded
out and by a precarious way reached
the horse's head and led him round to
the ford and back to the bank, the pas
senger fiddling all the way and wind
Ing up with :1 merry Jig.
"What do you mean by sitting out
there fiddling In the face of death?"
demanded Crockett of the rescued
"Well. colonel." sid the fiddler, "I
am a student of human nature. When
I found I had missed the ford and
needed help. I set out to get It. I
might have shouted myself hoarse and
I no one out here would have paid the
slightest attention to ine. But there
Isn't a man west of the Mississippi
who wouldn't come running at the
sound of a fiddle In the woods."
"And he was right." said Davy, "for
there we were. the lot of us, our horses
all of a latber, for running to satisfy
our curiosity about that squeaking fid
dle In this out of the way place."
The Word "Ale."
What could be more English than
the word ale? It carries us back to the
banquets of our dead ancestors In Wal
halla, and some of its compounds open
up vistas Into that old England which
is fast disappearing, becoming a tale
that Is told, obsolete Itself. Such are
alebush, a tavern sign; ale conner, "an
oficer appointed in every court leet
and sworn to look to the assize and
goodness of bread. ale and beer." Ale
cost, the name of a kind of tansy used
to flavor the rustic's home brewed, has
a good old English look. Yet it bears
witness to the mongrel nature of the
speech of this mongrel nation, cost be
itg from the Greek kostos, a savory
herb of species unidentified. Alegar Is
eager or sour ale, used as vinegar.
Wellington and Waterloo.
Helne, in speaking of Wellington's
good luck at Waterloo, says: "This
man has the bad fortune to meet with
good fortune when the greatet man of
the world Is unfortunate. We see in
him the victory of stupidity over genius
--Arthur Wellington triumphant when
Napoleon Bonaparte was overwhelmed.
Wellington and Napoleon! It Is a won
derful phenomenon that the human
mInd can at the same time think of
1)nth these names."
