"What Shall a

home to almost
every man at

you give in ex
your life?" It
is like that
the soul. Just
as an honest
man feds that
can be weighed
against his yml
so a man w ho
has one friend
to love him
knows that life
is too precioiui
to be bartend
away for am
bition, or money, pride.
lint men are slow to believe that over
work sometimes kills; a man hates to ad
mit that his health ever needs any particu
lar care. He feels miseraiile nod "out of
sorts" but tries to "bluff it off" until he
gets flat on his back, unable to do a stroke
of work. He becomes obliged to spend no
end of money for doctors and even at that
can hardly save his life.
How much more sensible, and in the end
how much cheaper at the first signs of phy
sical weakness to write to Dr. R. V. fierce,
chief consulting physician of the Invalids'
Hotel and Surgical Institute, of I'liffulo,
N. Y., and obtain, free of charge, the nd
