The speed at which tho blood circu

healthy man Is something surprising.
All day long, year In nnd year out, tho
round trips coutlnuo from the heart to
tho extremities and back ngaln. Tho
red blood corpuscles travel like boats In
a stream, going to'thls or that station
for such servlco as they have to per
form; and tho whlto corpuscles, tho
phagocytes, dart hither nnd thither Ilka
patrol boats, ready to arrest any con
traband cargo of dlscaso germs.
Tho mileage of tho blood circulation
reveals some astounding facta In our
personal history. Thus It has been cal
culated that, nssumlng tho heart to
bent sixty-nine times n mlnuto nt ordi
nary heart pretwure, tho blood goes nt
the rate of two hundred and seven
yards In tho minute, or seven miles tier
