ANY BOY MAY BECOME STRONG
IF HE WILL CAREFULLY FOL-
RULES FOR THE BEGINNER
^First Gain Consent of Your Stomach"
—"Rising and Sinking" and Oth-
er Exercises That Are
BY ALBERT PAYSON TERHUNE.
[Athletic Expert of New York Evening
World; Author of "Muscle
There is no royal road to athletic
power any more than there is a royal
road to learning.
You can't go to bed ignorant ar.4
wake the next morning with a college
education; nor can you learn by a few
weeks of over-study what takes a nor-
mal boy years to acquire.
It is the same with athletics. MoBt
boys, sooner or later, have longings to
be strong. Most of them "take out"
this ambition In mere planning; a fe\*
more do a great deal too much ath-
letic work for a week or 60 and then
grafiually cease doing any at all. Yet
they wonder that they notice no bene-
fit from what little they have done.
Persistent Effort Required.
Now, athletic prowess is like an edu-
cation. It cannot be mastered except
by steady and long work. If you look
on this work as a bore and fall to con-
centrate your mind on it you may as
well give up all hopes of becoming an
athlete. Jt is only the boy whose in-
terest in exercise is strong enough to
keep him at it consistently who can
aspire to athletic honors. To such a
boy there is nothing impossible. He
will succeed in athletics as he will suc-
ceed in later life; perhaps he will owe
much of the latter success to the for-
Now the boy. who has not the
strength of purpose to keep up the
athletic career he has once begun
will gain nothing by reading these les-
sons. They are written for the boy
who wants to be an athlete, and who
will stick to the exercise until he be-
comes one. I know how hard it is to
remember to go through all your ex-
ercises every day and how easy it is
to get in the habit of postponing them
until some more convenient season,
and to end by omitting them alto-
But the same applies to school work.
If you can set aside a portion of each
day for school you can set aside a far
smaller portion of the day for ath-
Let H»e suggest that you get three
or four other boys to form with you a
sort of informal athletic club and that
you exercise together. In this way
you cannot only point out each other's
mistakes and have a <*hance to com-
pare your improvements with that of
ethers, but the presence of otherB
will help you resist the temptation of
giving up the work.
Delicate Boys Made Strong.
If you will promise to adhere faith-
fully to the rules I shall lay out I
promise to make you an athlete. It
does not matter whether you are
fragile and tire easily or if you are one
of those boys who seem to be cut out
of a hickory knot. In either case you
can become an athlete if you keep at j
It long enough.
President Roosevelt—long before he
was president—told me that as a boy
he wag sickly and delicate. By ath-
letic work and outdoor exercise he ac-
quired a physique and a brain that
have given the word "strenuous" a
r.ew meaning. The present emperor
of Germany was another fragile child
whom early athletics rendered strong
and vigorous. James J. Cwrbett. the
boxer, is a third of many such exam-
ples that might be cited.
It is not the boy or man with the
enormous, cast-Iron muscles who is
the ideal athlete. The true athlete is
he who has every muscle trained and
supple, who has every inch of his body
under perfect and immediate control;
whose brain and body are in perfect
accord. The ox has twice the size,
muscle and pulling power of the tiger,
yet the tiger is by far the more for-
midable. So the trained athlete Is
easily the master of the longshoreman
or street tough.
Many boys *111 object that they are
too busy at school to go in for ath-
letics This is a mistake.
While you are in school or studying,
banish every thought of athletics from
your mind and think of nothing but
the book before you. But you will find
you have ample time, outside of study
tours, to become athlete.
For instance; Your school hours arc
probably from 9 to 3. You devote a
good part of the evening to study.
That leaves you the best part of the
afternoon and an hour in the morning
for athletics. It is really much more
time than you need.
Now, before I lay out any course of
exercise for you let me give you one
bit of warning that, applies equally to
the boy of 8 and the boy of 18. It is
Never exercise when you are tired.
If you weary of your exercises and
find it an exhausting effort to con-
tinue them, stop for the day. Each
day you will find you can exercise a
little longer and a little harder than
you could the day before. But exer-
cises gone through by exhausted mus-
cles, can do nothing but harm.
Stomach Must Be Right.
To become an athlete you must first
gain the consent of your stomach.
This is not meant for a joke. It is
the sternest sort of a fact, ns many
persons have learned who have neg-
lected to obtain that consent. On the
condition of the stomach depends all
the working of both body and mind.
A weak or disturbed stomach utterly
unfits a man or boy to do his best
work. Therefore, to become an ath-
lete, first build up the stomach, get-
ting it into strong, healthy condition.
That is half the battle for athletic
prowess. It Is easy to make the
stomach your friend. Unhappily, it is
almost as easy to make it your dan-
In the first place, it is not necessary
to diet as rigidly as If you were going
Into a college football game, but you
must, none the less, be careful what
you eat. Don't eat sweets between
meals; don't eat much dessert (unless
it is something like rice or tapioca
pudding); leave pastry alone. It is
too much, in winter, to expect any
boy wholly to give up buckwheat
cakes; but they are not good for you.
If you must eat them do so in modera-
tion. Leave sausage alone, too; and
other highly spiced foods. Neither tea
nor coffee should be drunk by any
growing boy; least of all by an ath-
lete. Fried foods of all sorts are bad
for you. Now, at first glance you may-
fancy these restrictions cut out the
best things of life. But they do not.
They cut out only the worst things.
Do not eat when you are tired out.
Rest a few minutes in such a case be-
fore eating. Take no violent exercise
for at least half an hour after eating.
Smoking Not Allowable.
Don't smoke. That is bad for both
stomach and nerves, and no normal
boy gets any real pleasure from doing
if Leave beer and liquor to older
people who are foolish enough to
spend money that way for the priv-
ilege of wrecking their constitutions.
Get at least nine hours' sleep every
The foregoing instructions must be
rigorously followed by every boy who
desires to be an athlete, whether he be
in primary school or in college. For
on stomach and nerves hang all an
athlete's chances of success. And the
perfect condition of nerves and stom-
ach depends on the strict observance
of these rules.
The course of exercises to follow is
intended for boys under 14. Up to
the age of 14 no boy should take up
seriously any of thoes more strenuous
sports. They are apt to injure frames
not yet hardened enough for such work.
The exercises I prescribe to-day are
beneficial and even necessary for all
rould-be athletes, either old or young,
but they are Intended especially for
the boy under 14, as coming well
within his scope.
Here is a good daily routine to start
First Morning Exercise.
Get up at seven o'clock.
Before bathing or beginning to dress
lie fiat on the floor, on your back.
Fold the arms across the chest. Now
rise toward a sitting posture, without
moving the legs and without uncross-
ing or moving the arms. Do not rise
entirely to a sitting posture, but only
about three-quarters of the distance.
Then sink back again Into your former
position and repeat the process of ris-
ing. Be sure to keep the legs rigid
and unmoved while doing this. Re^
peat four times the first morning not
stopping to rest between times. A'ter
that increase the number of "rises"
by one each morning till you caa rise
and sink back 20 times. If you find
you cannot stand this ratio of increase
without undue fatigue Increase by one
every other morning instead of every
Old-time gymnasts were taught to
rise entirely to a sitting posture • in
this exercise. This, however, is harm-
ful. For after you are about three-
quarters of the way up the strain be-
gins to fall on the spine, which it
wearies without strengthening.
This "rising and sinking" exercise is
splendid for strengthening all the mus-
cles of the back and abdomen, and ll
also beneficial for the leg muscles.
In this as well as in all the other ex-
ercises do not loaf. At the same time
do not move jerkily. Every movement
should be regular and quick, but not
For instance, when startijw: begin
also to count one, two, three, four. At
the word "two" you should be "up;" at
the word "four" you should be on your
back again; smarting to rise again at
the next count5 of "one." A second

easier. When it does try this varia-

the chest, lie holding them straight
above the head, and at every second
"rise" bring them down to the sides.
This is of benefit to the chest as well
as to the upper arm muscles.
A "Suppling" Movement.
After you have gone through this
first exercise the required number of
times, stand up, heels together, chest
out. arms hanging loosely.
Now stoop forward, without moving
the feet, keeping the whole body be-
low the waist perfectly rigid. Bend
forward until your finger tips touch
the floor in front of you.
You may be unable to touch the
floor in this fashion the first time you
try. But by practicing constantly your
muscles will soon "limber up" suffi-
ciently to enable you to do so. Re-
member to keep the legs rigid, the
knees unbent, while doing this.
Having touched the floor, rise to an
upright posture and try the same mo-
tion over again. When counting In
this exercise, take three seconds to
touch the floor and three more to rise
Do this four times the first morn-
ing and increase it by one each morn-
ing, until you get It up to 20.
Now, standing aa before, keeping
the heels together, bend as far back
as you can, without losing your bal-
ance; and recover your upright pos-
ture once more. This backward mo-
tion should be done slowly and easily,
with no wrench or jerkiness in the re-
covery. Do not lean back so far that
it will be any strain on back or abdo-
men to recover your former position.
Practice will enable you to go farther
backward as time goes on.
Try this, too, four times the first
morning, increasing by one, until you
Then try the forward motion again,
until the fingers touch the floor; and.
on recovery, do not stop at the upright
posture, but continue moving the
upper half of the body backward, thus
combining the two motions, and. re-
covering, move forward until the fin-
gers again touch the floor. Try the
daily increase of one on this motion,
too. These forward and backward mo-
tions are excellent for both abdomen
and back, especially for the latter, and
are also good for the legs.

MUSIC CURE FOR BALDNESS
Why Not? Just Look at the Violinists
and Pianists with Shaggy Manes.
The newest scheme for making hair
grow on bald heads is treatment by
So far as any definite conclusions
have been reached it appears that
string music, including the piano, is
favorable to the growth of the hair,
while wind instruments, especially
the wood wind, are destructive to it.
Look at Paderewski, says the advo-
cate of the remedy. Hasn't he some
hair? And what about Isaye and
Kubelik? Go back to Paganlnl and
Rubinstein and Liszt. Did you ever
see ft violinist or a piano virtuoso
who hadn't hair enough to stock a
On the other hand, look over any
orchestra or brass band If you can
catch it with its hats off. Did one
ever see a flute player or a cornetiBt
or a trombone operator who wasn't
either bald or getting there?
An attempt to explain the alleged
difference is made by assuming that
the powerful vibrations of the wind
instruments drive the bl*od out of
the scalp, while the strings awaken a
sympathetic quiver in the skin and
hair which has an effect like vibra-
tory massage. Some of the barbers
in London, Paris and Berlin are talk-
ing of adding violin soloists or even
string quarters to their staff to play,
for a consideration, over the heads of
Cultivation of Gossip.
A visionary man has undertaken to
cultivate gossip. Gossip of the past
and present, he believes, has been too
wild, rank and careless, and he is anx-
ious that it be pruned and trimmed.
Cultivated gossip will certainly not be
as entertaining, spicy and palatable
as the loose and untamed kind, but it
is believed that It will do less harm to
There are those persons who feel
that cultivated gossip will be stale,
flat and unprofitable. Gossip, to be
good gossip, must have a bite, a tin-
gle and a tang to it. Gossip to be
most interesting must be injurious to
somebody. The most popular gossip
must have plenty of scandal In 1L If
scandal should be censored out of go*
sip there would be no gossip, and thfc
would bo an inconceivable condition.
Any Child Can Do It—The Result la
Almost Like Magic—Useful, Too.
Anything 1b the nature of a chem-
fc&l experiment Is always Interesting
and usually educative. Here Is a sim-
ple experiment which any child can
perform and which Is instructive In a
very practical way: Get a bit of White
Lead about the size of a pea, a piece
of charcoal, a common candle In a
candlestick, and a blow-pipe. Scoop
out a little hollow in the charcoal to
hold the White Lead, then light the
candle, take the charcoal and lead in
one hand and the blow-pipe In the
other, with the large end of the blow-
pipe between the lips; blow the flame
of the candle steadily against the bit
of White Lead on the charcoal and If
the White Lead is pure it. will pres-
ently resolve itself into little shining
globules of metallic lead, under the
intense heat of the blow-pipe, leaving
If, however, the White Lead is adul-
terated In the slightest degree, It will
not wholly change into lead. So, It
will be seen, that this experiment is
not only an entertaining chemical
demonstration, but also of practical
use in the home. White Lead is the
most important ingredient of paint.
It should be bought pure and unadul-
terated and mixed with pure linseed
oil. That is the best paint. The
above easy experiment enables any-
one to know whether the paint Is the
kind which will wear or not.
The National Lead Company guar-
antee that white lead taken from a
package bearing their "Dutch Boy
Painter" trade-mark will prove abso-
lutely pure under the blow-pipe test;
and to encourage people to make the
test and prove the purity of paint be-
fore using it, they will send free a
blow-pipe and a valuable booklet on
paint to anyone writing them asking
for Test Equipment. Address Na-
tional Lead Company, Woodbridgo
Building, New York City.
BUT WAS IT THE SAME MELON?
Paper Carried by> Darky Amounted
Almost to Perpetual Permit.
"A negro just loves a watermelon,"
said Representative Johnson of South
Carolina. "Strange, too, that when a
policeman sees a negro with a melon
at an unreasonable hour he has it
right down that the darky has stolen
that watermelon. I heard a story about
a policeman who met a negro In the
early hours of the morning, and he
had a big melon on his shoulder.
" 'I see you have a melon there?'
" 'Yes, Bah,' answered the darky.
'I'se got er melon; but I'se fixed fer
you, sah,' and pulling out a paper he
handed it to the officer, who read:
'This bearer of this Is O. K. He paid
me ten cents for the melon, and he
is a pillar in the church. Jamey
" 'You are fixed,' said the officer.
" 'Dat's what I 'lowed,' answered the
negro, and he moved on."—Washing-
How Her Life Was Saved When Bit-
ten By a Large Snake.
How few people there are who are
not afraid of snakes. Not long ago a
harmless little garter snake fell on
the wheel of an automobile which was
being driven by a woman. The woman
promptly fainted and the car, left to
Its own resources, ran into a stone
wall and caused a serious accident.
The bite of a poisonous snake needs
prompt attention. Mrs. K. M. Fishel,
Route No. 1, Box 40, Dillsburg, Pa.,
tells how she saved her life when bit-
ten by a large snake.
"On August 29, 1906, I was bitten
on the hand twice by a large copper-
head snake. Being a distance from
any medical aid, as a last resort I
used Sloan's Liniment, and to my as-
tonishment found.it killed all pain and
was the means of saving my life. I
am the mother of four children and
am never without your Liniment."

Deafness Cannot Be Cured

cure deafness, and that Is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness Is caused by so inflamed condition of the
mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this
tube la Inflamed you have a rumbling sound or im-
perfect healing, and when It Is entirely closed, Deaf-
ness la the result, and unless the Inflammation can be
taken out and this tube restored to It* normal condi-
tion, hearing will be destroyed forever; nine cases
out of ten are caused by Catarrh, which is nothing
but an Inflamed condition of the mucous surfaces.

Marble Falls, Tex.—One of the most

that ever occurred in the wilds of

widow who lives in the Devil river
country not far from Juno. The
widow and her three children—two lit-
tle fellows and a daughter about grown
—had been spending some days visit-
ing a relative, and when they returned
to their house, which consisted of a
single room with a small shed room
used for a kitchen, they noticed that

"That was a horrible situation for
a few moments," says Mrs. Calone.
The agonizing suspense did not last
long. The mad brute began to wag his
long tail and lick his red chops. The
Spartan mother realized that the bat-
tle was on, and as she seized the dog-
iron she shouted to her children:
"Run under the bed!"
The panther with a wild shriek
vaunted toward the group. The little
children were scrambling away, and
the two women stepped apart. The
mad monster passed between them
and he landed right into the flre.
Clawing the burning coals and howl-
ing with rage the tortured beast was
doubtless partially blinded. Mrs. Ca-
lone struck him a hard blow on the
head which staggered him; but when
he leaped from the fireplace he mad"
straight for the mother, who was
aiming to reach the door for the pur-
pose of throwing it open.
"Showers of sparks cracking and fly-
ing from his fur and his red mouth
wide open he looked hideous enough
to have paralyzed a braver woman
than I," says Mrs. Calone. Fanny had
grasped the sword, and as the horrible
beast sprang upon her mother she ran
forward and plunged the blade into
his body. He was not easy to kill.
The brave girl had to strike again
and slash the monster almost into
two pieces before he relaxed his jaws
and rolled quivering and harmless
upon the bloody floor.
"I am not much hurt, daughter," ex-
claimed the mother, springing to her
feet. Fortunately her shoulder was
not much more than scratched.
"Thank heaven It Is all over," said
Fanny, sinking down on the hearth,
"but It will be many a long day before
I get over the scare." After the car-
cass of the big panther had been
dragged out into the yard and the
blood washed away the children re-
turned to the hearth and the little
family finished their supper.
