"Danger of Overtaxing Heart.
When one rises from the recumbent
to the standing position, the law of
gravitation tends to send the blood
towards the feet. Hence there is an
extra task for the heart in Bending the
blood to the head and a lessened one
in sending it downward. If the rising
la done slowly the heart accommo-
dates itself to the altered conditions.
But if the rising Is sudden, the heurt
may be overtaxed.

ivhile we did live comfortably we did

fully and hopefully.
"The other day, walking past a toy
store which had many pretty thing9

the toy store window; and looking up
at the object that the little girl had
indicated and then looking down at

" 'Wait till the ship comes in.'

John Eliot was a clergyman who
was identified with the early history ;
of Boston. He was born in 16M and ,
died in 1690. His birthplace was
Nazing, Essex, England. He was edu- .
cated at Jesus college, Cambridge,
and took orders in the Church of
As a pioneer in the work of the
church in America, Eliot came to be
known as "The Apostle to the In-
dians." He was a non-conformist in
the church, and refused to believe
that the only good Indian is a dead
j "I will chuotianize the red brother
and teach him the laws of civiliza-
*•11," said the sturdy clergyman, and
he thereupon set out to accomplish his
purpose at Nonantum, now Brighton,
about five miles west of Boston. U
may be said safely that there are no
I Indians there worth mentioning at
. this time.
j Eliot made translations of the Bible
into the Indian language, and his "In
dlan Grammar Begun," was printed
in Cambridge in 16G6. The only com-
plete copy of his famous Indian
| Primer," which appeared the following
1 year, is now in the library of tu«
; University of Edinburgh.
The pioneer clergyman made scmu
progress toward the conversion of the
tribes in Massachusetts after he h^l
become proficient in their language
He organized his converts tnt^ what
came to be called communities of
"Praying Indians," the best known one
of these settlements being at Natioli
King Philip's war, in 1G75, however,
gave his work a setback from which
it never recovered. His "Praying In
dians" returned to the pastime of ta
king colonial scalps with remarkablv
facility, and war paint and the do<;
tooth necklace once more became the
regulation costume among the tribej

I son of the disease evokes in us
: its proper antidote; our blood
cells make a sort of natural
antitoxin and keep it in stock,
so that we are henceforth protected

nurse, for Instance, works with safety
in a smallpox hospital, where the very
air is infective; but her blood was so
changed by vaccination that the small-
pox cannot affect her. By scarlet fe-
