How much most one exercise? How
ranch muscular work must one do to
Maintain pood health? According to
recent Kncllsh authorities the average
man should do. dally, work equiva
lent to climbing a perpendicular lad
der one-half mile, or twenty-six hun
dred feet high. If one lived In tho
vicinity of tukerbad, SwIUerland.or
In the neighborhood of certain deep
mine, be might actually climb such
a ladder. Ordinarily, some other more
convenient method of exercise must
be adopted. It haa been determined
that walking twenty feet on a level,
t the rate of three miles an hoar, is
equivalent to lifting the body perpen
dicularly the distance of one foot.
Hence, one may. If he chooses, walk
ten mi leu. insea4 of climbing a lad
der half a mile high. Of course, hill
climbing and mountain climbing will
accomplish the same thing as ladder
climbing, and If one chooses to do
the work indoors, he may work out his
task in stair climbing. Going up and
down a flight of stairs ten feet high Is
equivalent to raining the body about
twelve fee perpendicularly. Hence,
one might do the required amount of
work by going up and down such a
flight of stairs one hundred and sev
enteen time. But, first, he may do
the work while standing In a corner
and raising himself on his toea. In
nch exercise the body is elevated
about three Inches. Hence, four heel
raisings would be equivalent to rais
ing the body one foot, snd to raise the
body half a mile, or twenty-six hun
dred feet, it would be necessary to
rise upon the toes tea thousand four
hundred times. One might easily ex
ecute this movement at the rate of
one a second, which would be fifteen
feet a minute, or nine hundred feet
an hour. At this rate the day'a task
would be accomplished in about three
hours. But It would be very tiresome
to do the work In this way, for almost
the entire amount of work would be
thrown upon a single set of muscles.
Uy placing the hands upon the back
of a chair or upon a table the arms
may be used to assist In lifting the
body ao that the movements caa be
executed much more easily. More or
less weight can be thrown upon the
By raising upon the heels and bend
ing the knees, the body may be alter
nately raised and lowered through a
distance of about two feet The exe
cution of such movement require
nearly four aeconds, or fifteen to the
minute. The body would thus be lift
ed thirty times a minute, and an hour
and a half would be required to do
the day'a work. By placing weights
upon the shoulders the rate at which
the work is done would be increased,
and time shortened. But, on the whole,
there Is no method of accomplishing
the work so good as walking, and par
ticularly climbing a hill with a. mod
erately steep gtade.
Bicycle riding, If not overdone. Is
excellent exercise. To accomplish iho
same amount of work riding a bicy
cle, one must cover about four times
the distance required fur walking.

The practice, still so common, of
postponing the shearing of the sheep
until late spring is a relic of the days
when sheen wera kept for th wool
alone. It was thought that by leaving
the fleece on until after a considerable
amount of bot weather had passed it
would contain much more grease and
thus a greater welc-ht of fleece would
be secured. Even If a greater weight
of fleece were secured by this practice
there would be nothing gained so long
a the wool waa sold on Ita merit to
party who waa a good Judge of it
scouring qualities. There would be no
greater weight of clean wool; only
more waste matter to cleanse out
On the other hand. It I very doubt
ful if late shearing give any greater
weight of floece, even with th more
oily wooled breeds.
There Is more or less loss of wool
through shedding, particularly on the
part of the ewes with lambs, wher
the shearing Is not done until late
Also there is a less annual growth, as
with the heavy winter coat left on
after the weather geta warm, nature's
effort is to remove thi rather than to
grow more, With the winter over
coat removed at the heglunlcg oi
warm weather, there will be a mors
continuous growth throughout tht
year. There will be more clean wool
and It wilt be of longer staple and
Early shearing, before the sheep gc
to pasture, is also conducive to a
brighter and better condition of wool
by avoiding the soaking from aprinf
rains. Also, the sheep do much bet
