HOW TO GAIN VITAL FORCE
A Strong, Healthy Organization the first
Essential to SaooeM.
Dr, Augusta Brown-GIrard recently
gave a talk on the bubjoct: "How Shall
We Gain Vital Force?" in which bho
"The object of very person's exist
ence is the unfolding and perfection of
his own individuality nnd tho improve
ment of the race. A utrong, healthy or
ganisation is the first essential to suc
cess; intelligence, beauty, amiability,
nnd, indeed, there can be no condition
that ill health will not undermine.
"Neither wealth, position, honor nor
opportunity can compensate for the nb
sence of a well-balanced, healthful con
dition of body and mind. It is of the
greatest consequence that every person
should have some knowledge of the
chemistry, the anatomy nnd physiology
of his own organization. Self-knowledge
must include the body as well aa
"In a body that is not well balanced
the mind toon becomes feeble and is
often lost. In the organization of man
the mind depends ns much upon the
body ns the body upon the mind.
"With every thought, emotion, ef
fort, we expend a certain amount of
vltttl force, consequently while awake
wc are constantly using up this energy;
while asleep or in a passive stato vtcn.ro
left to nature's own law of action, con
sequently, and it is a natural law, while
in a normal condition the nerves attract
and draw vital force and are constantly
accumulating around their nerve cen
ters this vltul energy. We nre vitalized,
refreshed, during Bloep; then while
asleep or in a passive state we are re
serving what Is already accumulated.
"Many persons cannot sleep during
the day. They should lie down in a per
fectly passive state, withdrawing the
mind from all outslcfo external carat
and interests. Mako the mind a blank
as much as possiblo, and in this state
one may accumulate nervous strength
nearly as rapidly as in sleep. Dismiss
nil contending thoughts and give up the
whole being to be acted upon by na
ture's law simply rest absolutely.
"We must practice self-control; learn,
to stop exertion just short of fatigue.
Nothing is gained by overtaxing and de
"A well-managed, judicious practico
of exercise and rest of body and mind
will soon improve the most debilitated.

If one has mndo up his mind to rise to

and different ways to do this. Nature
constantly generates this force in every
individual to n greater or less degree.
If we are careful not to expend more
force than we gonerate daily we will ac
