Cardinal Gibbons" Rules of Life
His eminence. Cardinal Gibbons,
hag answered the old, old question of
how to live long and happily by quot
ing from his ov-n code of life. The
celebration last Wednesday of the
golden jubilee of bis eminence's or
dination to the priesthood and the
silver jubilee of his elevation to the
rardinalate give an added interest to1
the expression of his views on life.
The simple rules which he has fo!-
lowed have enabled hiru to arrive at I
his seventy and seventh milestone
after a lifetime spent in hard and
continued mental and physical la
bors. "To one meeting him for the
first time." says M. E. Clemens in
the New York World, "it 1 difficult
to believe that the kindly-faced gen
tleman who bears himself with such
an elasticity of carriage is a man very
nearly SO years old."
In reply to an inquiry as to the

secret of his wonderfully preserved
vigor, his eminence said, with a gen
tle smile: t
"There is nothing wonderful about
it. Try to preserve an equal and
tranquil disposition. By so doing
one is enabled to overcome those
hindrances in well doing which fre
quently arise from a turbulent men
tal condition. Avoid anger and meet
the many vicissitudes of life calmly.
Nothing conduces so much as wear
and tear of the human body as wor
ry. Worry is generally recognized
as a deterren in those things which
lead to mental and physical prog
ress." The truth of this is exemplified in
his eminence's own life. He is op
timistic. He does not worry. He is
calm and collected always. Few
have his even poise of will and abil
ity to meet and overcome difficulties
Never becoming ruffled mentally,
he always is able to decide serious
matters and to face a contingency
"Another important thing to re
member," he ran on, '"is to eat and
drink moderately and regularly in or
der to keep the mind and the body
at the highest standard of efficiency.
Avoid excesses of all kinds.: Eat
generously of the plainer foods.
Good green vegetables and the sub
stantial roasts are best. Eat spar
ingly of 6weets. Late suppers should
be the exception rather than the rule,
and irregularity in meals is not con
sistent with good digestion. Moder
ation in drinking is especially essen
tial to good health."
His eminence breakfasts at 8
o'clock sharp and his meal consists
with slight variations, of a eup of
loffee. one biscuit, one soft boiled
Sometimes there is a little ba
con or a chop Instead and marma
lade. The cardinal dines at 1:30 p. ra..
as a!l good Baltimoreans do. This
meel is made up of soup, a little
roast beef or lamb the latter is es
pecially his preference. He Is very
fond of vegetables string beans and
limas. mashed potatoes, peas or to
matoes, lettuce and spinach. Not
fond of sweets, he only occasionally
takes a dessert. A small glass ot
claret is taken, but he aJways di
lutes It freely.
At h's evening meal, supper, toe
cardinal has tea or buttermilk. The
latter is bis favorite beverage, and
he drinks plenty of it because be
considers it most healthful. Then
he takes a chop or small piece of
steak or a small portion of cold meat.
His eminence never eats before re
tiring unless he la to officiate at
high mass on the following day,
which entails fasting until after the
service is finished about 1 P in.,
or later. On such occasions he takes
a bite about 9 in the evening.

gave me "Take a reasonable
amount of outdoor exercise daily"

made toe ask him what he thought
the best form, of exercise. To this
he replied: .
"Walking, I consider, is the best.
There are many other excellent
forms but there are those who can
not afford to ride or indulge in other
means, while walking is within te
opportunity of all. The man confin
ed in an office all day should walk to
or from his business if possible. If
he finds he cannot do thle then let
him start earlier and take the exer
cise before boarding his car. Ihiee
or four miles a day is not too much
to walk, and in the good air ud
sunshine it cannot fail to benefit any
one who does it. Overexertion, of
course. Is not good.
"Another thing, it is as necessary
to exercise the mind as It is to exer
cise the body. The mind must be
kept active or the mental facilities
For about one hour before his din
ner the cardinal may be observed
any fine day walking briskly in
North Charles street, through the
boulevards or In Druid Hill park In
this time he covers from three to
four miles and returns usually with
a good -appetite gained by his con
stitutional. Sometimes he takes an
other stroll later in the day. Walk
ing is his tonic and the good health
which be enjoys is mainly due to
the regular exercise, hie love of
fresh air and his almost unbroken
regularity of meals.
The cardinal's mind is always ac
tive. He keeps informed on ail the
important topics of the day.
"Keep occupied," he continued. "A
man or woman without occupation
is but a derelict in the path of those
whose Uvea are engrossed by the
necessary effort to benefit them
selves or those in whom they are in
terested, and nothing tends more
to longevity than activity.
"Work is essential to good health.
Iron is more wasted by rust than by
wear. Activity should be a marked
part of everyone' nature, and In

ficient amount of repose and sleep.
Late hours to bed and laggard hab
its In the morning are the causes of
many 'failures in the attainment of
a vigorous old age. Eight hours of
sleep are an important factor in the
rapalr of nervous expenditure and
those who begrudge one-third of the
24 hours to quiet and restful repose
are . very apt to avail themselves of
time intended for work In order to
replete wasted energy."
In view of this rule, it is interest
ing to know that the cardinal rises
at 6 a. m. and scarcely ever retires
later than 10 p. m. Besides this, no
matter what pressing business pre
sents itself or who may be calling,
he insists on having his daily little
nap immediately after dinner. This
hours' repose he feels Is necessary
to offset fatigue caused by his num
erous duties and the better to fit
him for the remaining hours of the
day. His only relaxation from bus
ness affairs is when he takes his an
nual summer outing on Long island
or pays a visit to New Orleans.
In concluding this Interview he
said: "Be cheerful. A sunny dispo
sition looking always for the bright
er side or things Is more persuasive
than a beclouded countenance. It
is not the gray, overcast sky of No
vember that brings the flowers and
fruits to perfection, but the warm
clear sunshine of June."
His own admonitions are lived up
to by his eminence perhaps to a
greater degree than is found in many
much younger men. With clockwork
regularity each day's work is dis
posed of by him.
The prelate's Industry is shown by
his habitual routine. He begins the
day by saying mass at 7 o'clock.
Then he reads the mail before break
fast. Next he devotes an hour and
a half to dictating or he consults
with his chancellor. Rev Dr. Gavan.
This brings the time down to 10
o'clock. At this time he receives
visitors. They come and go on their
missions, business or . otherwise, un

Philadelphia, Pa., May 26. The
National Association of Hosiery and
Underwear Manufacturers which
controls 85 per cent of the hosiery
and probably 25 per cent of the knit
underwear manufactured in Amer

a resolution which will result in a
shutting down of their mills on an
average of four months in each year.
Wives arid sweethearts have little
chance to be happy themselves, or to
make others happy if they are in physi
cal suffering if they have headaches,
backaches, lassitude, or if their nerves
are tormenting them. Many women
take it for granted that they must
endure these and kindred sufferings
