After Rouen some hills peeped out from the morning mist, which were ob scured occasionally by a tunnel or two, I was much struck with the cultivation of the fields.

THE PATIQUi POINT. Nothing is so beneficial to a man of A. woman as to relax every muscle of the body, to lie, or at least Bit still with closed «yes for a short time every day. Many people cannot sleep, many can only spare a quarter of an hour for this rest, put if theso would make a point of taking just what they can, they would coon find a marked difference in their health.

But these i*I effects if thoy arise from want of work^ also attack those who habitually ^ pass the fatigue point. To "rest just before get ting really tired is. one of' tho very best methods to prevent a breakdown. If montal or physical strain is contin ued, even a little'too far for any con siderable length of...
