'lou have a heart -is it a regular heart ? SNDOUBTEDLY yes, and probably it is a first-class American Heart, the biggest heart in the world, fine, generous, sensi tive, never refusing to respond instantly to endless calls for help; giving, giving, giving; jumping to obey your will for more energy, more power, more blood-to put life into your mental and physical activities, a red punch into every muscle, a tingle to every nerve, a grip to your hand, a vigor to your thoughts, sincerity to your sympathy-a vital, human, " regular " heart. Have you one ? Of course yes. But probably you never have given a thought to that marvelously made engine of yours, that machine that runs you, delicate, full of vital valves, and muscles, and a million throbbing cells. And probably you never will think of it until ..... it drops a beat. The motor of your beloved car demands the garage constantly and gets the care it needs. But your own heart beats on, beats on incessantly. Now and then it waves a red flag before you. Half of the physical and mental ills of life are red-flag appeals of a tired heart. You know these danger signals, but do you heed them ? This advertisement is simply a humane suggestion. Have a heart for your own heart-that engine of your will. Give it a thought. Treat it at least as well as you treat the engine of your motor. Neglect it, overwork it too long, and it will cost you all joy in life. Probably there is nothing the matter with your heart; but the absolute knowledge of a perfect, "regular" heart is an inspiration. It clears the road, lifts the speed limit, and sets you free.
