Growing Old a Force of Habit.

IT ia'timeli more important to prevent premature OLD AGE
tban to prevent death.
, WE GROW OLD LARGELY BECAUSE IT 18 THE CON
VENTIONAL THINQ TO DO. WHEN A MAN REACHES A
CERTAIN AGE IT IS NOWADAYS POSITIVELY INDECENT FOR HIM
tO REMAIN YOUNG. WE LET OURSELVES GROW OLD BECAUSE
PEOPLE TELL US WE ARE GROWING OLD.
A man ought to put his foot down and say, "I WON'T GROW
OLD." lie ought to get out of grooves. Wo are not haphazard
enough. Wo are apt to do the same thing over and over again, aud
that in itself is extremely aging.
The chief general rule to prevent old age is to IJEFRALN FROil
WORRYING, because worry involves fear and cowardice. LAUGH
TER is an invaluable preventive of old age.
A fortune awaits the man who will provide a padded room where
