There is no doing anything with an op

This control ot body and ot mind makes
It possible for Judge Taft to be always
busy, yet never exhausted. He knows
what fatigue Is, naturally, but he knows
how to rest. He devotes to resting the
same Intelligent understanding that he
gives to work. He Is master In this, loo.
His pleasures, loo, hin recreations, do not
