Avoid hnste nnd hurry: these nre
the things thnt confuse the brnln and
make cloar Judgment Impossible. The
besetting temptation of the nervous
woman la to hurry from ono duty to
another In breathless haste, attempt
ing many tasks, yet achieving none
of them with dignity or freedom.
Whon such a temptation arises, call
halt. Remain quiet for a fow min

and refuse to do In ono hour

Habituate yourself to tho control ot
tho emotions. Nothing makes such
havoc of the nervous system, nothing
disorganizes the Inner llfo llko nnger,

quelled if the soul Is to maintain Its
supremacy nnd nervous pence is to bo
enjoyed; nnd this Is done, not, indoed,

luch constructive ones as love, aspira
tion after some Ideal, fnlth in God. nnd

"Every time two stories ot steel at
completed the derrick must be raised,"
writes William Allen Johnston, In Har-
pors Weekly. "Only a year ago It
meant a day's work. Now they do It
In from 30 minutes to two hours. In
tho old way they rigged a stiff-legged
derrick above, which grappled down
and lifted up tho boom-derrick. In
other words, thoy rased a derrick with
derrick. Now they make the der
rick raise Itself. A young iron fore
man solved tho problem one day when
his company gnve him Just 13 days
to put up tho frame of a 13-story
building. 'It's easy enough,' said he.
You Just fold up tbo derricks and lash
the boom nnd mast together. Then
detach tho main "fnll," or hoisting
cnblo.tfrom the boom and give It a
clutch around the mast about one
third of the longth from the top. Now
start your winding drums down thero
In the basement, and what's going to
happen? Why, the cablo pulls tho
hole derrick up and holds It till we
mako new moorings.'"

HARMON FIRST IN CONTEST
Judson Harmon, governor of Ohio, who haa
beon renominated by the Democrats of his state
for a second term, Is tho first In the AoM for the
presidential nomination In 1913. Of course a
great deal depends upon whether bo Is elected
this fall, but his friends are sanguine of suc
cess. Should hb be defeated in his race for gov
ernor It naturally would put hlra out of the con
test for the presidency.
Governor Harmon was born in Hamilton coun
ty, Ohio, In 1810. His father was a clergyman.
Ho was graduated from Denlson university in
18C0, and from the Cincinnati Law school In

tant position two years and again went bock to the practise ot bis profession.
Ho was president of the Ohio Dar association and member ot the faculty of
tho law department of the University ot Cincinnati.
In January, 1910, he took tho oath ot office as governor of the Duckeya
state to serve two years. His renominatlon and his endorsement as the par
ty's candidate tor president by the Ohio convention speaks louder than words
so far as his record as governor Is concerned.

Justlco William II. Moody of tho United States
supdomo court must resign. Under tho law a
momber ot tbo court must serve ten years before
ho can retire on pay. To aid Justice Moody, Sen
ator Lodge Introduced In the senate a bill giving

Justice Moody was attorney general when
President Roosevelt appointed him to the bench

then, but it was not until about ono year ago
