TO DEVELOP THE BACK POSITION THAT,
BRINGS HEALTH, BEAUTY AND-GRACE
A woman with a weak bacK gen
erally is in poor health, and poor
health quickly causes a woman's
beauty to fade.
It is not surprising, however, that
so many women have weak backs be
cause few really exercise the back.
The accompanying picture shows
one of the positions in a swinging ex
ercise, which gives co-ordination of
muscular action, and particularly de
velops the muscles of the back. Prac
ticed regularly this exercise will de
velop health, beauty and grace.
To begin the exercise stand with
the feet slightly apart, arms hanging'
at the sides. Now shift the weight to
the right foot and at the same time
swing the arms up in a wide sweep
from left to right as high as possible.
Continue this for five counts, then
rest five before resuming the exer
cise. If this is practiced daily it not only
develops the muscles of the back,
but will tend to develop the symetry
of the shoulders as welL

A dog show is a bad place to dis
cuss secrets too many tail-bearers
Don't try to throw the bull he's
got a bad bite.
Most dogs have enough Irish in
them to appreciate a friendly pat.
The only safe way to let dog-eat-dog
is to feed 'em wieners.
The average bench dog is just "too
dear for anything" except for the
fellow with a lot of money to spare.
The show bench is the only place
for mother not to worry about her
boy going to the dogs.
As a matter of fact a registered,
full-blooded dog hasn't any more
blood than a poor mongrel.
A watch dog can always tell a
tramp the time to go.
If you treat a'dqg-right he may be

ditto if you donlt.'treat-him right.
