PERIL IN ATHLETICS
PHYSICAL EXERCISE SHOULD BE
TAKEN IN MODERATION.

extra possible a dozen other ills, but

Dr. Robert E. Coughlia of Brooklyn,
says the Nev York Times, has been
collecting statisz!es upon and follow

Tcur wox matches, and the abnormal
develomraenlt of the best of them struck
him. Magnicently developed as to
thei-r muscles, they were far from be
ing men of normal health and strength.
Beyond a certain point the muscular
training was at the expense of their
vitality. It took away from the heart
and lungs. There was scarcely an or
gan of the system not affected and
made less eflicient. It seemed worth
while to explore further into the cause.
"In regard to the benefit to be de
rived from athletics." says the doctor.
"one has only to remember the physiol
ogy of exercise to become convinced
of the fact that exercise, per se, may
be very beneficial. The point to bear
in mInd is to advise the person to stop
before fatigue becomes evident. We
ean do this readily when the athlete is
interested in games for the mere exer
else, but such advice cannot be offered
when his aim is to excel in an athletic
contest. Here is where athletics do
great harm, and it would be a safe rule
to advise against all forms of athletics
in the nature of a contest.
"Athletics may be said to be bene

signal," there is no real danger here,
only a warning. The danger comes
when, in consequence of additional ex
ertion, the heart dilates, its interior
rows larger. displacing the delicate
machinery, causing the valves to leak.
Then come "murmurs," and though a

valves he may die any day and any
Does physical exercise, then, build
up the general health and make a
better man out of a man? There
seems to be a question, with some
scientific men saying today very em
phaticaily, 'Not unless that physical
eercise is very moderate indeed."
Health, one of the big English au
thorities (Sir Michael Foster) puts it,
does not exist. It is like happiness.
Each has a goal or limit which, while
seemingly attainable, eludes perfect
Possession. The body consists of a
number of mechanisms which have the
losest and most exact relations, and

Not necessarily does a man by phys
ical training and much exercise be
ome a better man, nor does he even
:et better health- Here is the striking
vidence of it in scientific statements
f the day.
To obta.in good health, muscle build
ing is not a necessity. One cannot
udge of a person's health by the size
and hardness of the muscles.\ We
ave seen that the converse may be
true. To obtain health one must not
e in a perfectly trained condition ow
ing to the effects of severe training on
the nervous system. There is no evi
:ence to prove that athletics and mus
le building improve the constitution.
One should always keep in mind the
fact that built up or hypertrophied
muscle has a tendency to degenerate.
The heart, being a muscular organ,
shares in this tendency.
But the athlete is a man who goes
hrough the severest physical strain
and training. If he boxes, runs, is a
ymnast, a football player, a wrestler,
n expert at baseball or tennis, any
sport requiring violent exercise and
the constant keeping in trim for it, all
he rest of his body is sacrificed for
the overdevelopment of these special
:uscles, and the rest of it must some
Al the body should develop together,
as it were. Body and mind should be
built up evenly. If overathletics does
othing else kt produces a wearing and
tearing nervous strain.
Wha it comes to the actual athlete,
the aan- who specializes on some form
f hysicalI force and muscle power,
these condid~ons are greatly aggrav-at
,d. Severe athletic training and inns
:l building, it is now an acknowledged
fact of science, are at the expense of
th nerv.ous and glandular sysitims.
A:1 experienced athlete," says one
a:uthority, "-gave as his opinion that at
man sacrifices a certain part of his life'
every time he enters a contest of any
kind. IHe also said that a man when
-fit,' a-s expre'ssed by athletes, is in anu
abnormally nerv-ous condition. In oth
er words, he ca'n never remain at ease
for a minute at a time and, like the
caged 110on, is forever on the move dur
ing his wakibg moments. It has been
noticed by observers that athletes are
often sickly and particularly suscepti
ble to contipation and appendicts."

THE SWISS ARMY.
Alwayrs Ready For War Service a
The total population of Switzerland
is rather less than half the population
of London alone, yet the plucky little
republic can throw into the field at a
moment's notice four completely equip
ped and trained army corps to Ger
many's and France's twenty and Eng
land's nominal eight. In proportion to
her population as compared with Swit
zerland, England should possess fifty.
Every ablebodied Swiss is, ipso facto,
a member of the army from eighteen
to forty-four, yet never does one hear
the least complaint made by a Swiss
of whatever social class at the trifling I
sacrifice of time that his military
duties demand. Wo watch a Swiss bat

camp or on its return is to watch as
contented, serviceable and cheerful a
lot of men as one could wish to eet.

CAUCASIAN AND NEGRO.
They Are Funlamentally Opposite
Extremes In Evolution.
T!.e Caucasian has the subjeetive foc
ultiesl well developed; the negro. the ob
jective. The Caucasian, and more par
ticularly the Anglo-Saxon, is dominant
and doineering and possessed prima
rily with determination, will power,
self control, self government and all
1.e ttributes !f the subjective self,
wh high dev-eclopment of the ethical
ant aesthetic fcalties and great rea
Soning powers. The negro is in direct
contrast by reason of a certain lack of
these powers, and a great development
of the objective qualities. The negro
is primarily offectionate. immensely
emotional, then sensual, and, under
provocation, passionate. There is love
of outward show, of ostentation, of ap
probation. HTe loves melody and a rude
kind of poetry and sonorous language.
There is undeveloped artistic power
and taste-negroes make good artisans
and handicraftsmen. They are deli
cilent in judgment, in the formation of
new ideas from existing facts, in de
vising hypotheses and in making de
ductions in general. They are imitative
rather than original, inventive, or con
structive. There is instability of char
acter incident to lack of sell control,
especially in connection with the sex

orientation or recognition of position

For instance, by the addition of veg
etable juice just before being dished
up cod cutlets are, at seasorg4' when
salmon is very dear, set before cus
tomers as salmon cutlets - and are,
needless to say, charged accordingly.
This deception, accordinfg to han ex
chef, is wisely practiced not only in
better chiss restaurants, but also on
some of the great liners.
Another popular trick as practiced
by the restaurateur is to serve a real
beef done up overnight in salted band
ages, while a skillful chef has very
little dificulty in palming off fiatfish
for sole on epicures who pride them
selves on the soundness of their judg
ment of cooking.
On oie occasion some time ago a
dinner for seventy-five people was or
dered at a well known fashionable res
taurant in the upper part of New York.
A large consignment of salmon had
been previously ordered, but, to the
consternation of the chef, .the dinner
hour- slowly approached- and still no
In despair the chef, a Frenchman,
decided to "take the bull by the horns"
and procure another fish to do duty for
the coveted salmon. - Accordingly he
sat to work to turn cod cutlets intosalm
on cutlets. and this rapid transforma
tLion was soon cffected by an addition
of vegetable julee. The w;Uters. who
naturally w re aware cf this whole
sale deception, were given e:press or
ders to report any complaints to the
chef at once. However, to the intense
delight of the chef :li passed off well,
and on hearing that his subterfuge had
not been detected he glcefully -ex
claimed. "Ah, a cod and a French cooki
can work miracles."
Green peas at certain seaso-:s of the
year are naturally a luxury quite be
yond the reach of the man of average
means, while even caterers for fashion
able hotels themselves frequently have
the greatest difficulty in getting -suf
ficiently large quantity to meet the de
mand. However, to fake peas does not
offer any great diificulty in times of
stress, and by adding vegetable color
ing matter yellow peas are quite com
monly served up as green peas along
with the duck and flavorless new po
tatoes, which more often than not
come from abroad.
Rfoast veal served with a thick white
sauce makes, says a well known chef,
a most satisfactory substitute for the
breast of chicken, and therefore it doea
not come altogether as a surprise to
learn that the breast of one chicken
has been known to satisfy twelve
"The staff take gcod care of the
breast of a chicken," was the comment
of a waiter who was being for the first
ineinitiated into the mystery of how
to feed a dozen people~ off one chicken.
I'erhaps the- cleverest deception prac
be. h . eminent ch Cs is the art of
manfacurig the iobster patty, so
dear to the heart of the epicure. This
appetzi~g :dainty wonld at first sight
seem to defy even the most ingenious
cookery fakir. However, here again
the artul chef has overcome apparently
In'. eaie diGiculties, and many tooth
.0 e looking lobster patties are thus
not always quite what they are- said
The deceptio:l is worke-d in this way:
A commnon c:-ustacean is boiled and the

a :acrtar, while aifterwvard. part of the

.i;;ru.iy pounded as fine as possibie,
and on tho addition of flavoring it
would ta:x the powers ot the most
critical connoisseur to detett any dif
ference between the gastronomie ~mix
ture and the genuine lobster patty.

you of, r-emarled a famous chef to
the writer. "are naturally not prac
