ff:''' Listen! Can you hear your watch tick?- Does, it ueed repairing? � S..... _ \ Remember that I can repair yotir watch Iho way it should ig. new-supply of energy, and he can keep running for a long time witkout any great increase in his feeling of fatigue. At last he reaches a point w>here the cxertiion teils hand again; fatigue piles up torribly fast now-so fast that unless the runntu- knows just how much he is good for and has made oarefui calculations he is ;iike-ly to be 'all in* before he g^ts to tho end. Every step makes an inroad on his reaervc energy^ The last spurt costs rijoro than ftU tho rest toipeth-or. Ii'' a man has covered his distanca without touching the final turn of the fatigue Qurve, he will get rested in a reasonably' shorftinic. and be '.able f>to go over the course again. Burt if, instead, he Imvs to keep on, jteeth set, eyes ibul^ng, 'hugging his com cobs,' until he rolls over on the groiihd, it may take weeks for him to get into good form again. In a big race, naturally he's got to be itwdy to do that. There are emergencies in everybody's life when the merely prudent thing isn't the right thing. If n house is on fire and a family on the top floor is in danger, and ' you're tlie only'person on tlie pfemiscs, yo\i can't stand calmly aside ami calcu -Ifntc your fatigue curve. There's a necessity for actioi*-at any cost whatever, oven life. M man may have a big^iroposition to put tfarouti^h, some important com taination to eflect, a new movement to got under way. X'orhaps lie is tho only person who knows the vhole sit-iiat'ion; success may ntally at the sides and notic -ing whether ^tho fmgers tremble. Tho fatigue condition raises the nerve pressure and allow flow-overs from one nerve into an(�t'hor. Normrally a nervous impulse goes along its nervu directly to the point of strain; but when you nro fntisuod the stimulus spreads into other ner\-es as well, and is not distinctly transmittod. Sir Froncis Oalion, the great statistician, siiys that the best test ho knows is that 61 resaiessnoss, shown in muscular movements. Many times, he says, he has sat in a positioti where ho could wiatch an audience as it listenod to some long scientific memoir. He took notes of how people noted under tho strain of pro -trnoted attention-how often they moved, at the beginning of the hour they would sit quietly; then thoy would begin to move on the average of once ewry four seconds, then every throe sccomls, and ho says llhat it is possible to trace right through any audience every degree of fatigue by the nuniibor of muscular movements nmdo. Ho has simply put togvlher mothmotacially some data are familiar to all of us. Wo have all seen-and, alas, lx>on a. part of -an audience th.i/t was trying to eiv dune the last half hour of an uncn -durable speech. Everybody was shifting his position, crossing one leg' over the other or back again, mov -jn.^ the fingers, i)laying w4th watch charms or chain, yawning, twitching, folding programme, wiping eyeglasses adjusting l>ack hair, twisting m\is-tache. Those were all fatigue signs. A loss of seli-oontrol in small, thirds; that's tlie symptom in different terms; and another name for it is irritability. At first it .ser cent.
