We Get a We Give
Lere, sympathy, geed-will and the
kindly deed that Is always ready and
en tap is what expands, multiplies and
beautifies life. Hatred, cynicism, 111
will, self-seeking, envy and Jealousy
Is what dwarfs and stultifies.
Hew Instinctively all men and wom

of these whose lives era dominated
by the former! Hew Instinctively
they shun and even despise the com
pany of these who are embodiments of
the latter! And this et itself speaks
volumes as te which is the right or the
wrong approach te life.
One can never de an act of kindly
service for another without in the very
act of doing it reaping a corresponding
benefit for himself. It Is net the
professional geed-doing; for thnt,
many times, becomes self-conscious,
conceited, even self-seeking. It is
rather setting the heart aright and keen
ing the mind open always te seize the
opportunity te de the kindly service
wherever the need is known, wherever
the opportunity presents itself.
There is also a great law of In
directness that operates here. It is this :
Whenever we de an act of kindly serv
ice for another, forgetful of and with
no thought of self or gain, many times
it does us mero geed than the one for
whom we de it. The life is broadened,
ennobled, expanded, lifted out of nnd
above the dwarfed and the stunted of the

itself into this fermula: We find our
lives in losing them in the larger human

What Happen When Memery Falls?
When memory falls peracthlng hap
pens within the brain similar te what
takes place when the operator breaks
the connection whlle you are talking
en the telephone.
All of the impressions registered in
our brain, however, nre nermanenllv'
(.recorded, and the right contacts will
Lring tnem te the front again. These
records are made In the outer rim or
cortex of the brain, which Is mnde
up of billions of cells, each of which hn
branches like little wires, te give it
rejitnct with the surrounding cells
These cells, therefore, through thelt
outside wires, overlap like the Icavet
of many trees growing together.
Te understand what happens when
memory fails we must first see what
occurs when we remember or recall a
thing. When we are able te recall
things, the cells through their over
lapping branches are in perfect con
tact, and It is easy te bring the im
pression asked for te the front. WIipt
we become tired, however, or are shock
ed or perhntis merely through age, the
supply et tioeu hent te the lirnln
is peer nnd these cells are temnnrarllv
or permanently undernourished. The re
sult Is that the ends of the everlnn-
pin branches curl up nnd thus lese
contact with ether celts, destroying
the connection. Excepting in old "nee
when the curling up becomes perma
nent, this condition Is generally reme
