The subject of dlcuss4on had been the
enormous number of sudden deaths
from heart disease, and a number of
prominent gentlemen were discussing
It. Among the company was a doctor,
a railroad superintendent, and a min
ister of the Gospel.
"I tell you, it Is enough to make any
man or woman shudder. Joseph C.
Wilson, the receiver of the Atchison,
Topeka and Santa Fe railroad, died at
the Holland house, New York, before
he had a chance to, bid his wife and
daughters farewell. George F. Root,
the sweet singer and composer, passes
away In a similar munner. Indeed, we
none of us can tell what moment we
many be called, nnd It ought to make
anyone stop and think."
The company all looked at the doctor.
"Your remarks are well timed. The
strains, the pressure, the competition
In business, professional and social life,
often tend to shorten life and bring It
to a quick close, but no man ever died
suddenly who Ud not have warnings

The banker, who had first spoken, and
appeared greatly Interested, said:
"Hut. doctor, what can one do? Re
frain entirely from the pleasures, the
duties and the activities or lire"
"Not at all," replied the eminent
physician; "regulate the life use care

little doubt of good old age. I know of
