Exercise of Reasonable Amount Will Power It Necessary. of It will usually be found useless to try to stop worrying by simply saying: "I won't worry." That Is the negatlre way of reaching the trouble. Some thing must be put in its place. Hav ing assumed the general attitude of re sistance to it, fill the mind with thoughts of other things. Get an in teresting book indoors and keep out doors as much as possible, and get Into good physical condition. People In sound health are almost nevei known to worry. A person who has worried habitually for a long time bas developed grooves Into which his m'nd easily slides. He can change the di rection of his thought very much by auto-suggestion.

There are few people who are n6t at some time confronted with situations calculated to cause uneasiness.

Surnames In Bosnia. Bosnia is a land where, a man's surname very often varies according to his religion. In the old days fami lies often divided their members be tween Christianity and Islam, so as to be certain to have friends on the winning side, much as old Scottish families in some cases deliberately divided themselves between Jacobite and Hanoverian. In such Bosnian cases, Sir Charles Eliot explains, all representatives of the original family recognize each other as relatives, but generally they use different names for the two branches, conveying the same meaning In Slavonic and Turk ish respectively. For example, there are the names Raikovlch and Jenetlch ("Ral" and "Jennet" both meaning paradise), and Sokollch and Shahln agich ("Sokol" and "Shahin" both meaning falcon). A Danger.
