, but "practice makes perfect," and a
dally observation of this simple rule
will accomplish wonders with weak '
ankle la addition to this exercise,;
fry to walk oa your tip toes, keep
ings your poise as long as possible, .
Another, excellent exercise la to
strengthen the musoles by tha down-'
ward stretch.' This may be dona at
odd moments when one la engaged In
sewing, reading, writing er any of
the hundred and ', one things for
wbloh one occupies 'ia sitting Instead of

may be so acquired that It will become
"second nature" to one, and It Is done
aa follows i Point the toe downward,
and keep It in this position, aa If try
ing to - reach an objective point
. Stretch all the muscles gently at first,
pointing first downward, then slde
wlse to the right and left Gradu

do not care for powder, get a good liquid
or paste . preparation and brush them

extraot them with dental floss. Never '
pick the teeth with any sharp Instru
ment .but use a wooden or quill tooth
pick. Wash the mouth out frequently ,
with lukewarm water and an astringent ;

Many people ara under the Imprea
elon that they suffer from weak
ankles, when the root of the trouble
Is badly fitted shoes-yes, and even
hose. Very ehort hose not only wear
out quickly, but they cramp the toee
and make one generally uncomfort
able. Add to this shoes that do not
fit properly, which ara either too
broad and throw the foot forward too
much, or which are too narrow and
cramp the toes. Too high arched In
steps or too low onea will ruin tha
ahapellest foot and Injure the ankles,
the muscles of whioh will become dis
torted if abused. ., , I
Exaggerated .teals, perhaps, causa
more trouble than any other thing
about shoes. The present-day footgear,
with high Cuban and French heels,
causa no end of trouble, with the
result that the natural arch of the foot
la exaggerated, and, la consequence, all
the muscles of the foot and ankle be
come strained and tense, '
The proper way of walking, too,
should be acquired, aa this will obviate
ankle dlflloultlee greatly. A straight
forward awihg from tha hip and a firm
placing of the foot letting It fall nat

The best thing for you to do would be
to consult a physician as soon as pos
sible. AU your symptoms point to some
organic complaint probably an affection
of the heart Do not be alarmed, but
take sstps to cure yourself immediate
ly. It is not your blood which is at
fault but your liver, your kidneys, or

remedies you mention, but follow your
