EXERCISE NEEDED FOR WEAK HEARTS Those who wish to live to old age need to take care of their hearts and preserve th«ir vigor. This can be done only by hygienic precautions, pspe. cially in avoiding alcoholic stimulants, and also in avoiding anythlpg that con stricts or cramps this organ. If by bending over desks one becomes narrow f-hested, th<» heart has less room and can not do its work so easily. It would be for the heart like exercise for the muscles with dumbbells or clubs in a small bedroom. The gymnast could get no free play for his limbs |n such a, room. This is also one of the evils of tight clothing, not only corsets, but coats and vests that constrict the free play of the chest. They cramp the move ments of the heart and make them less perfect. So excessive eating gives the heart more work to do. and often taxes it beyond Its power. When the food is changed into blood the heart has to force it all through the body, and if the organ is weak it often falls to act. and then what happens every one knows. Weak hearts may be strengthened by moderate and regular exercise of al most any kind. It is unwise, when the heart is weak, to avoid physical cul ture. Al! one has to do is to avoid ex tremes, simply taxing the heart up to its strength and no more. Do this regularly and the heart will gain slowly in vigor. Persons with fatty degeneration of the heart have been greatly improved by systematic exer cise.—Health. rrrelfth Annual Bloaaom Fmtlral at Saratoga, April 8, 1911 $2.50 for the round trip from San Francisco and Bay region.

It has been agreed that to each of the women who are managing the affair will be assigned a district, which they and their assistants will patrol. The idea of the nursery pencils, while original with its patrons, is not a new one. For some time Its directors have conducted private sales of these pen cils, which bear the inscription: "Lest you forget San Francisco nursery home less children." Apparently It is being appreciated not only by private Individuals, but by the large mercantile establishments and factories aa well, for large orders have come in from most of the wholesale houses of the city. So great Is the de mand that an order for more pencils has been placed with the manufactur ers, and further requests for large as signments may have to be filled after the three days of the sale are past. The women in charge of the nursery are more than encouraged by the hearty co-operation of the city at large.

He was arrested subsequently and charged with an attempt to commit burglary, but the case was dismissed. NIGHTINGALES ARE RAISED BY ROBINS G. W. Bulman. in Country Life, un folds an interesting plan for introduc ing nightingales into the London parks. The difficulties, it would seem, are more apparent than real. London is thought to be almost the center of nightingale land. Sir John Sinclair some years ago succeeded in rearing some of the birds in Scotland. He obtained a number of nightingales' eggs from the south, pay ing a shilling each for them. These he had placed in robins' nests on his es tate. They were duly hatched and the young nightingales were reared by the robins. At the usual time in the autumn they left for the south, and never re turned. Bulman suggests that similar means should be adopted In London, with some probability of the birds re turning, for ornithologists hold that birds return to breed where they were reared. Scotland being without the nightingale line would account for Sir John Sinclair's birds not returning. rjHunyadi mm * *JL Janos H Water NATURAL LAXATIVE *^^ I Recommended . i^^Kffl ey Physicians mflgrja Refuse Substitutes % Glass on arising for *tS$&Et& CONSTIPATION | YOU Cl HAVEISfIT HOME AND INCOME ;; If you buy. a few acres of our walnut groves :at I Concord, the' coming: subur ban section of the bay cities.
