The Best Exercise.
InstMt but the heel first The heel
should be first to touch the ground and
first to leave It Rise on the ball of
the foot Spring from the toe for
the next step, after the heel has been
raised. Do not turn the toe out or
In, but keep the foot straight. Do not
swing the leg outward in taking a
step, but move It -straight forward ao
m barely to miss the other leg In
passing. In this way you not only
avoid awkwardness and extra work,
but you get over the ground faster.
Tour legs (especially the calf and
ankle) may be a little sore when you
try It at first for you bring Into play
many leg muscles that otherwise
would go undeveloped. The Indian
walks as I have Just advised, and he
cm cover twice as many miles a day
as can most white men.
Keep the shoulders squared, the
head well up and the mouth closed.
Let your arms swing a little If they
do so naturally, but avoid the habit of
so many boys of swinging both arms
far forward or backward at every al-
ternate stride like the sails of a wind-
mill. You waste strength to no pur-
pose in doing this. Keep the knees
limber and Just far enough apart
when one leg passes another to avoid
striking them together. Breathe nat-
urally in deep breaths, such as I de-
scribed in the preceding lesson.
Don't lag one minute and walk your
legs off the next. Strike a quick, even
gait and hold it without variation. In
this way you will get over more
ground than you would believe. It Is
the unconscious loitering and then the
spasmodic hurrying that tires most
walkers. When once you have accus-
tomed your leg muscles to the new
way of walking and have learned to
maintain a uniform, swift gait you can
walk for hours without the slightest
Climbing 8tairs Easily.
The same rules apply to stair climb-
ing. Watch the average boy (or
grown person, for that matter) climb

the most ridiculous sights Imaginable.

I come now to somewhat more ad-
vanced athletics, the sort that no boy
ran Mfely take up to any eitent until
he to at least 14.

Boys Should Learn Boxing,
The first throe—boxing, fencing Md
bag punching—abould be made a part
of ©very boy's education. They not
only bring strength. cndurMco Md
activity, but they teach a boy to think.
They teach him to use his brain m
well m his body.
Parents whom- boys come home
from school with black eyes, bleeding
lips Md torn clothes are wont to think
tbo Injuries are duo to boxing—or
fighting, which In many persona' minds
meMs the same thing. Now tboso
boys havo not been boxing at all.
They've bocn In a rough and tumble
light Between "scrapping" and box-
ing there Is an much difference M be-
tween a three-year-old baby'a strum-
ming on tho pinno and Paderewskl's
playing of the ttume instrument
Instead of being a vent for 111 tem-
per and quarrelsome disposition, box-
ing Is tho best method 1 know of for
teaching a boy self-control. More-
over, the skilled boxer Is usually the
Inst person to look for a light Confi-
dent in his superior skill and prowess,
he generally avoids a quarrel aa long
The boxer, too, learns to take heavy
blows without flinching, and gains
therefrom not only endurance but in-
creased good temper. Tbo boxer who
loses his temper Is universally scorned
and Is as thoroughly "sent to Coven-
try" as though he were caught steal-
ing. Self-control and fair play are tho
keynotes of this finest of exercises.
What I have said of the mental ad-
vantages of boxing will be borne out
by all persons who have given It a fair
trial. The mother who forbids her
boy to box because it Is brutal Is de-
frauding him of one of the greatest ad-
vMtages he could possibly have.
So much for the mental side of the
"nmnly art" From a merely physical
standpoint boxing develops every mus-
cle of the body as does no other exer-
cise; makes a boy quick on his feet;
trains the eye, and brings the various
parts of the frame into better co-
The main thing for boys to remem-
ber In handling gloves Is that quick-
ness counts for everything, and that a
merely heavy blow counts for noth-
ing. Slugging Is not boxing. The
trained boxer can easily beat the mere
slugger. Moreover, you are boxing
with the Idea of self-Improvement; not
In tho hope of hurting your opponent.
Of course, now and then a heavy blow
cannot be avoided. Thd recipient
should understand that It was acci-
dental and should bear no malice nor
turn a friendly bout into a slugging
Never box longer than three minutes
at most without stopping to rest for at
least one minute. Don't box In a dila-
tory fashion, but keep at it quickly and
steadily as long as the round lasts. In
the "rests," no matter how warm you
may be, put a coat or sweater on and
keep out of draughts. It Is after the
real wortc is over that the average
athlete Is most often injured. It is at
such times a fatally easy matter to
catch a severe cold or to acquire rheu-
Get a Punching Bag.
Bag punching is Inseparably linked
to boxing. Every boy who can do so
should "save up" to buy a punching
bag. If possible, hang It in your room
and, as part of your morning and
evening exercise, punch it.
Punch it in three-minute rounds,
resting one minute between rounds.
If three minutes Is too long at first
begin with one-minute rounds. Try
three rounds morning and evening.
That is enough for any boy. Practice,
on the bag, the blows you use In box-
ing, and learn the simple "tattoo" and
"right and left shifts." Keep your
feet moving. Duck the bag as you
would duck an opponent's blow. Keep
moving in and out, striking the bag as
if it were a living adversary.
You may be somewhat awkward at
first but you will quickly acqulro
grace and speed.
If there is not room for a regular
"platform bag," buy what is known as
a "two-ender." This to a bag huug be-
tween two elastic ropes which fasten
to the floor and celling, or to the
threshold and top of a doorway. It
takes ap less room than does a plat-
form bag and can be put up or re-
moved In a minute. The "platform,"
however, gives mors scope and, If ob-
tainable, will do more good.

Beware of Football.
Football Is a sport that comes m
natural to the healthy boy athlete m
swimming or running. Although it 1s
grand exercise and full of excitement
it has another side which renders It
of doubtful value. More football play-
ers are killed yearly In this country
than from all other athletic sports
combined. No matter how well
trained a player may be, there 1s al-
ways the peril of fractured bones or
internal injury. There is no rule
whereby these accidents may be
wholly averted, under the present foot-
ball system. Their chances may, of
course, be greatly lessened by proper
training, and by keeping the bodily
health in perfect condition. I, myself,
played football for years. But I do
not advise the "American boy athlete"
to do so. However, I'm afraid my ad-
vice will not greatly affect his plans
for continued playing. So I confine
myself to begging him to make sure
he Is In excellent training before he
goes Into such a game. The football
season Is so short and the time for
regular preliminary training so limit-
ed that the boy who goes in for it
ought to be in first-rate physical con-
dition before beginning the fall foot'
ball practice. A totally untrained boy
runs grave risks in playing football;
the boy who trains for only a few
weeks runs almost equal risks.
With the older athlete, as well m
with his younger brother, athletic suc-
cess 1s impossible unless he leads a
clean, strictly temperate life. Tobacco,
liquor, late hours and other dissipa-
tions debar a boy from athletic prow-
ess. He must choose between them
and abide bv his choice.
At My sporting goods store all neo-
essary appliances for averting injury
or strain may be bought These should
be worn during every moment of ath-
letic work, and only at such times. |
Before going in for boxing or foot-
ball, it Is well to consult your family
physician and make sure you have aot
a "bad" heart or any other physical
which might lead to Injury.
