If is not possible to lay down any gen
eral rules as to how far it is advisable ti
go in all kinds of sportiug exercises and
other amusements so thut no injury umj
be done to the heart, or as to how much
bodily or mental exertion each individual
is able to support. One rule, however, is
applicable in all cases—whatever the
sport may be, in the beginning it should
be carried on slowly, with but a Blight
exertion of streugth, which should then
be increased very gradually. Should pal
pitation of the heart set iu after any ex
ertion it may be taken for granted that
the proper amount of exercise has been
Surpassed. It is also advisable for those
who devote themselves to any sport that
requires unusual effort to have their heart
examined from time to time by a physi
