When you overwerk any muscle or
tet of muscles they tire and must havo
rest. What is true of muscle is doubly
true of the brain, as from it emanates
all power to work, to act, to think.
The brain is full of little cells that dur
ing the waking hours are never quiet
in their efforts to furnish to every or

these little cells of their rest, at night
keep them at work all the time, and
soon they tire, refuse to act, fail to
