Keeping an Eye on the Clock May Be a Sign That
You Are Efficient — Not Lazy or Lacking in
Interest, Which Is the Popular Interpretation.
Eminent Psychologist.
WATCHING the dock has fallen into disrepute.
It is generally assumed that the person who continually
has one eye on the clock is lazy and inefficient or he does
it because he lacks interest in his work and wants to be off.
^ This does not, however, necessarily follow.
/ sw It may mean quite the opposite.
• JBl v \ || \ Watching the clock may be prompted by the
^ motive of crowding in the most possible work
■ in the shortest possible space of time!
In fact, a considerable percentage of individ
uals would distinctly further their efficiency if
V, they did watch the clock a little more.
Too many go through their day’s work with
no thought of time whatever.
/ Few, indeed, can tell you off-hand just how
long it takes to perform a certain task which
l they have already performed hundreds of times
r£>. :f>.. If they were to check themselves up by the
f'-i test of time they’d be surprised how variable
/»* . ‘ . \ y\ their efficiency record is.
■ **'/<• A task requiring a half hour one day, prob
DR. LOUIS E. BISCH *bly takes forty minutes the next, twenty-five
a third, and so on.
The reason for such wide margins of variability in performance
is not because the task itself varies but because the individual him
self does.
If you work with no thought of time you do not tend to speed up.
You invariably tend to let down! *
One day you may be feeling specially interested in your work,
and, of course, you work harder and the task doesn’t take so long.
Then comes another day when your spirits are at a lower ebb
and in consquence you positively waste time.
Watch the clock therefore.
But watch it in order to make the most out of your time.
Don’t watch it and sigh when the hands seem to move slowly.
Watch it to check yourself up by.
Watch it to jack yourself up by.
Apportion your time.
beconu^k* the experiment and see how much more efficient you can
Nothing is worse than having time drag on your hands.
The more you crowd into the hours the quicker they go by.
Let the clock help you I
Make it show you up for a variably efficient worker so that you
may know your performances are not steady and even and so that
you may learn how to increase your efficiency.
If your output and energy and work, whatever the work may be,
is not desultory you will not wear yourself out so easily.
\ ou will function then like a high-powered but smoothly running
motor, smooth and noiseless, and with friction reduced to a minimum.
What the clock can do for you depends entirely upon how you
use it.

Immaculate, it appears three times a

It is also advisable to change the
china often to give variety and fresh
ness to the appearance of the tray.
A fresh flower is always a pleasing
addition. Again the foods must be

Home Decoration By Marie Marot

ODD bits of furniture tastefully used in
decorating the home, go far towards mak
ing it a real home and not simply a house
full of furniture. We are so prone nowadays to
(ill our rooms with “suites" that -every house we
enter seems to be cut from the same pattern.
And when we do enter a door and lind things a
bit out of the ordinary, we know that we are in
a home that is restful, charming and into which
loving thought and care has been .inculcated.
If we have sufficient room in a bedroom, a
four-poster bed adds a stately, yet homey, note
that gives an eternal sense of well-being. The
bed pictured above is of walnut, patterned after
an old Seventeenth Century bed, richly carved.
With a canopy and spread of dainty lace or ruf
fled Swiss, it’s an everlasting joy.
For the corner of the stairs, or that blank
space in the foyer, the Grandfather’s Clock, with
its Whittington chimes, is just the thing This

Then for the tea table, the English Lowe
stoft teapot adds a lovely touch. If we are
fortunate to possess several pieces of this charm

decorative as this.

Year in and Year Out This Faithful Organ Will
Perform Its Duties Loyally If Given
the Proper Assistance.
United States Senator from New York,
Former Commisrioner of Health. New York City. ' ,
(Third Heart Article.)
IN THESE articles about the heart, it is my purpose to show that
you need not stay awake nights worrying over that faithful organ. ■
Year m and year out it will go its way, serving you loyally and
devotedly. Most of the cases of “heart lesion” are purely imaginary
and have no existence outside the brain of the 1
worried one. ,
Of course, there are real ailments and actual
defects of this vital organ. One of them is
called “cardiac insufficiency.”
In simple language these big words are applied
to a certain type of weak and unfit heart. It is
a condition which renders the heart incapable of
doing its full duty. It lacks the strength and
vigor to sei.e the body as it is expected to do.
Having such a heart is a pretty serious thing.
You can get along without an ear or a foot, or
with an unfit hand. But to have an unfit heajt
lessens the usefulness and happiness of every
minute of your life. <
There can be no perfection of health in skin,
or muscle, or stomach, or brain, if the muscles *
of the heart are not strong and vigorous. There DR. COPELAND
cannot be physical efficiency unless that vital
organ forces the blood in a cleansing stream to every part of the body.
Our food cannot be utilized unless there is an abundant supply of ■
oxygen. This element is carried into our lungs with the air we breathe.
It passes through the thin walls of the air cells into the blood. There
the oxygen combines with a chemical*
substance in the blood cells, a sub
stance known as "hemoglobin."
The combination of the oxygen .
and hemoglobin make* a new sub
stance. known to the scientists as
"oxyhemoglobin." This vital product
is curried to every part of the body .
and used where there is need for it.
The body has the power to store
up certain substances which act as a
sort of reserve. They can be called
upon for service when needed. Fat
is such a substance. But this is not i
the case with the oxyhemoglobin. It <
must be used immediately or the
body has missed its opportunity. It
passes a given point but once. If It
is not taken up by the tissues which
need it. they have no second chance
at that particular cargo
What is the function of the oxy
hemoglobin? If the blood cells are
not loaded with th.s precious ma
terlal. there is nothing to do the
cleansing and purifying work essen

oxygen to burn the food we eat and

Our individual welfare depends
upon the unfailing activity of a
strong heart. It must be a fit heart,
a dependable heart, a well-developed
muscular heart.
Such » heart sends the blood
through the lungs. There it picks up
its load of oxygen. This it carries
everywhere, to the last cell and fibre
of the body. It prepares the food for
our use. supplies the energy, and
disposes of the waste products.
We don't want cardiac insuffiency.
We can have no “pep’ or energy if
we are so unfortunate.
Good food to supply the energy.
Oxygen to make the food available
to the body's use. Exercise to pro
mote the circulation of the blood:
These three things are vital to
health. When they are supplied, the
heart is likely to do its work tn
proi*er fashion. Then we will have
cardiac sufficiency and good health
as a natural result.

-By Adele Garrison-—
Harry's Gallant Compliments Cause Madge to Wonder If
His Infatuation Is Returning.
IF. in my mind, there had lurked*
any feeling of irritation against
Harry Underwoou for hi* ob
j stinacy concerning the treatment of
Lillian s nervous headache. It van
ished completely as I heard him offer
to stay m the city during the re
mainder of Marion's vacation in
order that the girl might have her
mother entirely to herself.
I knew that he had cherished naive
schoolboy anticipations of driving his
wife and stepdaughter around the
country in the new car which he had
bought, and that he had counted
upon conquering Marion's antago
nism to himself with the lure of driv
ing the beautiful new machine. That
he was both humiliated and disap
pointed by my revelation of Marion s
prejudices. I also realized and I
mentally saluted the whole-hearted
spirit of sacrifice which invested his
prompt answer to me.
I wished that 1 could devise some
plan other than the one he had ad
vanced. but my common sense as well
as my emotions told me that he had
bit upon the one procedure likely to
solve his problem and Lillian s. But
my voice was a bit husky as ! turned
toward him.
"What do 1 think 7** 1 echoed
"What could thi*re be In my mind
save approval—and appreciation of a
very gallant gentleman.'•
He flushed like a schoolboy, and
his eyes were bright with grateful
appreciation of my answer He put
out his hand and laid it over mine,
resting on the wheel.
"You're a thundering good little
scout." he said warmly. Then some
thing less readable came into his eyes
and tte released my hand but stared
at me compellingly.
“Look here. Lady Fair,** he said.
“I'm now immune and a re formed
char-r-ac-ter. as I*ve told you so
often, but. as such, let me give you
a piece of advice. When you're ap
preciative of anything a gent* says
to you. put blinders on those very
expressive lamps of yours before you
look up at him with that trusting
- expression and hand out the

you're very likely to find yourself

not all Anthonies—or whatever his
name was—like me.”
He had chattered away my embar
rassment. and I laughed, as I guessed
he Intended I should.
."If you’ve quite done.” I said. ’’I’d
like to suggest something."
“I’m.the best listener in the coun
try." he answered promptly.
"I wondered if It wouldn't be a
good idea to take Marion and Mary
ov»r to Rlverhead for Marion’s
license.” I said. "Katherine wants
Lillian to rest today, and it strikes
me it would be a good plan-”
“The bulllest ever.” he said, ’’but
do you think Marion-”
"Prejudices are one thing in a
girl's mind, and driving a smart
motor car is another.” I told him.
■'Both the girls can drive n little,
can’t they?" he asked.
