"Long May It Wave."
' The period of life from the age of
forty, when man or woman should be
in the most perfect physical and men
tal condition, to the age of fifty or
later is marked by many wrecks due
Co carelessness. At this time of lite
"general breakdown," or, i as some
easy-going souls prefer to call j it,
"nervous exhaustion,", too frequently
in terrenes upon a career and upsets
the best laid plans of men "and wo
men. Why? s
The. most widespread disease j in
America today i not tuberculosis, not
pneumonia, not typhoid fever, not
cancer, not- malaria, but cardiovas

which this 'exceedingly common de
generation manifests . itself harden
ing of the arteries, high blood press
ure, heart muscle failure (slow in
sidious heart failure), nephritis
(Blight's disease) and apoplexy
(stroke of paralysis, cerebral hemor
rhage) render it difficult; for health
authorities to pope with it, since the
average victim prefers to! ignore the
earlier evidences altogether, or, what
is perhaps worse assumes that the
disturbance of health is "merely func-
off for months and years the visit to
a good doctor and the thorough gen
eral examination which is so neces
sary to detect the earliest or incipi
ent signs of approaching breakdown
before the breakdown arrives! There

Every organic disease is .fuQCtional,
of course, and if the diseas cannot

In the death of Theodore Roosevelt
which occurred at 4:15 a. m., Monday,
America has met with an irreparable;
loss. In his tpassing the i gieatest
American is gone. No other man in;
the United States possessed ! the num
ber of warm friends as did Mr. Roose
velt. : He secured the biggest major
ity of the pophlar vote ever given any
man who, has run for the Presidency.!
As a President he inaugurated man
reforms that will survive for ages.
. President Wilson says of him: "A
.President he awoke the nation to the;
dangers of private control which lurk-!
ed in our financial and ' industrial sys-;
' tem. It was by thus arresting the,
attention, and jstimulating the purpose!
of the country that he opened the way;
for subsequent necessary and benefi-j
cial reforms.") J
Many, of the . great laws of reform
placed on the statute books were
placed there because he saw the need
of them and aroused the people to the
necessity of them. Mr. Roosevelt was
called upon to fill

Fat And Fear
The reason why many individuals
are too fat and therefore physi-
xcally inefficient, not to say unhappy,
is as plain as day. They eat! too
much. The majority, of the fat ones
will indignantly deny the allegation
and insist they eat lees than lots of
skinny folks, True enough, perhaps,
yet the fact remains that they eat too
much. No matter what the relative
. size of the appetite may be, no mat
ter how birdlike the. appetite, if the
many responsible i weight s above tne normal ior sge
positions during his I public 'career; hand heisht. the individual certainly is
ana ne maaej gooa m every one oj
-them. While, many of our citizens
differ wildelyi with Mr. Roosevelt m
his views, yei not one ever doubted
his courage or the sincerity of, his acj
tions American, typically so, he wa$
always to be j found advocating : that
which he thought was for, the good of
his country. Courageous, as so many
times s&own;! Patriotic, always and
under all circumstances. . :-

fluous flesh or fat. This fat amounts
practically to slacker tissue ; , it is
made up of fat cells, slacker cells, calls
which do no useful work in the econ
omy, but are ' just a, burden and a
handicap to the host. -:
Now the reason . why so nianjr.people
accumulate excessive flesh after thirty
is because they have Required certain
habits of eating and exercise which
'have .been normal- enough in early
life but are not suitable for the" later
years.1 Up to-the age of thirty there
