(The World's Whirling
Wonder, Greatest of
All Women Skaters,
Specially for The
Day Book.)
Every one should learn
to skate; it makes one
beautiful and strong.
I was a delicate child.
Now my muscles are as
hard, as those of an athlete. When
I was 9 years of age I began skat
ing for my health. It has made
me well and strong and filled out all
the ugly hollows.
It is not hard to learn to skate well
enough to do simple figures and" to
dance on ice-, and, oh, it is more won
derful than dancing on, a Hoor it is
more like flying.

DIAGRAM
SHOWING
HOW TO SKATE
"THE EDGES"
skating is the proper carriage. Al
ways hold the head well up, body
erect, with arms extended gracefully.
Bend the leg slightly at the knee.
The balance leg should be carried
somewhat away from the 'skating
leg, with the knee well bent and the
foot turned outward and downward.
For balance, when the arms are on
the one side of the body the leg is
pon the other, almost invariably.
