Hnrold was not selfish. lie was fni
from being a miser. His Idea of a
miser was a chap he had known In his
borne town. He had never spent any
money which he could possibly avoid
spending. He always nto with his
friends and rnrely paid for n meal. 'He
was always out of cigarettes and so
smoked his friends' cigarettes.
He had made a good living and
never failed to talk of his poverty.
He had been accused of worshiping
money and he had replied : "Not a bit

TRAIN YOUR MUSCLES.
You cannot have u strong, 'well
developed body unless you train
your muscles, for unless muscles are
used they won't grow. Do you know
what would happen if you were to
hold your arm perfectly still for two
or three months? Well, once I had
my arm strapped to my chest for six
weeks and when they took it down I
thought it belonged to somebody else
because the muscles had shrunken
to less than half their former size.
Your bones are a frame to which
the muscles are attached. Every
movement you make, from batting
the eye to jumjing a rope is pro
duced by the action of from one to
dozens and dozens of muscles, if
tho muscles are weak, therefore, all
your work and play is weakened, for
all your actions depend on moving
muscles. k "
One-sided work and one-sided play
develop a one-sided body, because
only certain groups of muscles are
developed. For instance, the post
man develops strong legs and may
have weak arms, while the wood
chopper may have strong arms and
weak legs. So it Jakes all around
work and all around play, if that
body is to be properly developed and

have 'to keep on trying. Get tho
"sotting, up exercises" and .practice
them faithfully. Play all kinds of
games in the opon air so you will de
velop all your muscles. Sleep with
your windows open, drink a full
glass of water every hour or two,
and drink from a pint to a quart of
milk a day. Eat plenty of green
vegetables and also enough bread
and meat, so you will have a bal
anced ration. Don't eat between
meals, though you may drink a glass
of milk half way between meals, for
this takes tho place of nourishing
food and gives the muscles work to
do. Dr. E. L. Bishop.

Too much of the traffic of human
life flows In one direction only. Too
many folks can Bee themselves and
their own interests only, and Insist
upon others keeping out of their
way. There should be' more "Btop'
and "proceed" signs. Endless traffic
In one way only means Infringement
on the others' rights, congestion and
lack' of balance.
Folks become lopsided because
they stress one thing and ignore all
other things.. Thoy fail to seo that
there are other good things In this
world besides the hobby they ride.
The American boy who Is so fond
of work that he has no desire to play
of witness a football or .-baseball
game is lopsided. He is either a no
nentity or else is bearing down on
other things that are robbing him
of tho desire for relaxation. Tho
one who makes play a business nnd
loses his head over craving for pleas
ure is to be pitied. That one is
without a serious goal in life.
Many a man is driving his busi
ness. Blind to everything else, th'nt
one reaches the place where tho bus
iness drives him. He becomes lop
sided, instead of living the bal
Much of the latent energy of llfo
Is not released, and tremendous
waste of natural resources is the re
sult. This is because of the one
way How of human trafllo. Many a
reformer becomes a bore and a pest
because he does not distribute his
energy Into more than one province.
Not a few persons become narrow and
see but one track to which they
would apply themselves.
Every boarding place must vary
its menu or lose its boarders. " A
church does its best work when it
varies Its spiritual program to meet
human problems, rather than when
it tries to make human problems

All problems destined to make
this a better world, make people
more genorous, make sin harder to
endure, are important. He who Is
so lopsided that he thinks only his
cause is worthy of honorable men
tion, is losing touch with the rest ot
the world and is apt to stand alone
eventually. Human problems that
call for manhood to help make man

We make our most grievous errcr
when we fall to see that all our
great human problems are so many
links ln a chain. Every problem
