'The miisclc.4 of the skin need train
ing to educate them to contract vigor
ously on the slightest cold," says n
medical writer, "to shut the blood out
of the skin so ipilckly that the precious
body heat will not bo lost. You notice
that when the skin Is cold there Is a
'goose skin' appearance. This Is due
to the contraction of the llttlo muscles
of the skin. The contraction of the
muscles compresses tho external blood
vessels and drives away the blood from
the surface, hardening ami thickening
the skin, which thereby becomes a bet

perature Is maintained.

not only that of the face, has learned

Some people get along beautifully for
half a lifetime perhaps while every
thing goes smoothly. While they are
accumulating property nnd gaining
friends and reputation their characters
seem to be strong and well balanced,
hut the moment there Is friction nny
where, the moment trouble comes n
failure In business, a panic or n great
crisis In which they lose their all they
are overwhelmed. They despair, lose
heart courage, faith, hopo and power to
try again -everything. Their very man
hood or womanhood Is swallowed up
by a mere material loss,
This Is failure Indeed, and there Is
small hope for nny ono who falls to
such n depth of despnlr. There In hope
for nn Ignorant man who cunnot write
his name even If ho ban stamina and.
backlione. There 'a hopo for n crlpplo
who has courage, there Is hope for a
boy who has nerve and grit, even
though he Is so hemmed In that ho has
apparently no chance In tho world, but
there Is no ho! for a man who cannot
or will not stand up nftcr ho falls, but
loses heart when opposition strikes him
nnd lays down his nrms nftcr defeat.
Let everything else go If you must,
but never lose your grip on yourself.
Do not let your manhood or woman
hood go. This Is your priceless pearl,

The health of the body as well as f
the mind depends upon forgetting. To
lot the memory of a wrong, of angry
words, of petty meanness, linger and
rankle In your memory will not only
dissipate your mental energy, but It
will react upon the body. Tho secre
tions will be diminished, digestion im
paired, sleep disturbed and tho general
health Miffer In consequence. Forget
ting Is a splendid mental cnllsthenlc
ami a good medicine for tho body.
