SOMETHING TO DO.
OH, ye who comp'iain of the
grin 1, remember th?se words
(which are true'): Tbe dreariest
job one can find is looking for
aomethin' to do! Sometime, when
my work seems a crime, end 1'
m sorely tempted to sob, I think
of the lone vanished time when
I was out huntinz a job. I walk
ed eighty miles every day, and
climed forty thousand high stairs,
and people would shoo me away,
and pelt me with inkstands and
chairs. And then, when the
evening grew dark, I knew
naught of comfort or easei I made
me a bed in the park, for supper
chewed bark from the trees. 1
looked through the windows at
men who tackled their oysters
squaba,' and probably grumbled
again because they were tired of
their job. And I was out their in
the rain, with nothing to eat but
my shoe, and filled with a madd
ening pain because I bad noth
ing to do. And now when I'm
trempted to raise' the grand hail
ing sign of distress, I think of
those sorrowful days, and then I
feel better, I cues?. I go at my
labor* again with energy vital
trad new, and say, as I toil in my
dec, "Thank god, I have some
thing to do!"

my wife to move somewhere else
or to let me go and then come

? COHSMVATIOH OF HVMM LIFE
life is (he great aitn of the age,
and in this cause * the layman,
the physician and the scientist
must work hand in hand. How
to conserve hi?pUh should be the
matter of an open door to?a11,
and with that splendid intcrrcst
in the human race for which it
is noted the medical fraternity is
Riving such information as will
be voluab'e to a'l people.
The News and Observer,
which advocates all matters
which have to do with the better
ment of the people, has sought
to be of service in work of this
kind, and it is now going to pub
lish a series cf speial articles
which it believes will.be foucd to
be of value.
These articles are by Dr. Al
bert S. Gay, of Chicago. He is a
physician, scientist, lecturer and
writer, who has devoted himself
for the past ten j ears to scientific
research in the interest of disease
prevention, and he has n^^ired
a series'of articles emdodying the
net results of bis study and exp
eriencc, under the caption, "The
Conservation of Human Life."
These articles will prove of un
questioned value to the public at
large in this period when the tren
of human thoughs is toward the
attainment of physical well being
efficiency and longer life.
These articles go much deeper
into the subject than the several
current health-advice feature.
Dr. Gay is working not only to-,
ward the education of the people
in the interest of better health,
longevity and great efficiency,
but indirectly for social better
ment, which will naturally fol
low in the train of improved
physical and mental condition
and the acquirement of self mas
tery and the ncquiyitfual thought
Dr. Gay proclaims the doctrine
that the way to be well is to be
sensible, and that being healths
is a duty whtch each individual
owes not alone to himself but to
the human rare. His article?,
which tare sane, illuminating
contributions to the public's J
knowledge of health principle, i
will appear io the News and J
Observer on Mondays, Wednes- j
days and Fridays as features or !
