Moderation Is now considered the
salvation of this life. A splendid rule
for attaining longevity la summed up
>y the United States Public Health

"Other things being equal tt Is tha
man who lesdl the well-balanced life
who lasts the longest, whose work to

1 who neither over-works, nor over

moderation, who offsets mental :work
with physical recreation, who Is as
honest with his own bodv as he is
with his own bnalneee. When aue
