MOW TO, USE IT AND THE RESULTS
THAT MAY BE EXPECTED.
If a Mm Can Afford bat On Device far a
Cmnt f Athletic Training, He Bad
Better Bay Towsls Aa Ana war That
Will Apply Generally.
A render of The Sun, who signs tba nam
of "An Insurance Office Clerk," writes to ask,
"what tort of a device a young man who can
afford but one" should buy "to improve hira
eslf lu an athletlo way." Thia ia a Tory im
portant question, for tba young man who
properly Improve himself "In an athletio
way" ia Ukaly to add twenty year to bia Ufa.
To as Wet a ting la device by which a young
man who muni aU at a desk all day may im
prove himself In an atbletio way it la necee
aary to keep in mind tba Insidious foa of all
athletlo eaerciaea taurines. Onoa aucb a de
vice aa this la found and ita um begun, tba
work of Improvement la easily and comfort
- Buch a device fat found la tba oraab towel
Thai ia the Judgment of athlete, prim fighter
and physicians, to whom a reporter talked on
tlia subject. If a young man can afford but
a small sum of money for the purchase of an
athletic outfit, let blin buy crash towels.
Tba expensive towola are really worth tba
coat, if bought at a trustworthy store, but
one can make a very good beginning with a
two yard strip of twenty-Are cent stuff.
HOW TO l' IT.
To make thia beginning, wait until ready
to go to bed. Having turned down the cov
ers and made everything ready, strip stark
naked. In winter in a tire lea boarding house
bedroom toe air will make the young man
shiver, particularly it the window baa been
open all day to purify the room. No matter.
His back will itch a little, nevertheless. Grab
tba towel by the ends, throw It over the back
and surge it to and fro. Comfort I Solid.
It will make the back warm instantly. Keep
it a-going, first over one shoulder and then
tba other, and then rub the arms to the finger
tips with equal speed. Then attack the legs
and hump yourself over It In a little more
time than It takes to toll bow to do it tba
young man will flud bis skin aglow and the
blood tingling in bis vein.
Do not at the first trial keep at it until
tired, but do not let a hair's breadth of the
skin escape a keen rubbing. Afterward,
when used to it, rub longer. Then jump Into
the night shirt and Into bed. I? is taken for
granted that every young man has a fresh
shirt to sleep in at night No man who sleeps
in tba clothe be bas worn all day can live out
his natural time.
In about two minutes after getting Into bed
it will be observed that every square Inch of
tba body bas become moist, that the towel
bas set every pore perspiring. This is a most
cheering discovery. Ever since the young
man was a boy be has known that bis skin
was simply a net, it was full of boles, and
that these boles wore the mouths of tiny
sewers. The dams in the mouths of these
sewers have been torn away by the crash
toweL and the pent up sewage is Bowing out.
Sometimes these sewers are forced open by
doses of quinine and other medicines. That
process is very like blowing open a city's
ewers with dynamite circumstances may
arias to make it necessary, but the crash
towel makes no singing in the ears.
After contentedly considering the benefits
of getting this stuff out of the body, let the
young man think over some other good
things that be did while using the towel
Very likely he will observe that certain mus
cle of the arms are tired, and that be was
breathing lustily when be first got into bed.
The active use of the towel made the longs
pump the wind in and out briskly. He has
begun to improve hi wind already. His
arms are tired because in dragging the towel
to and fro be used certain muscle which he
had not used before to any extent, and the
new use of them necessarily develop tbem.
In rubbing the chest other muscle of the
arm were used, while the muscle of the
back and chest are squeezed and rolled about
and the blond pressed through them by the
motion ; so they are strengthened.
In rubbing the limits the young man had to
stoop over and work himself up and down
like the handle of a farmhouse pump. If that
did not exercue and strengthen the muscles
of the bark and abdomen, nothing wilL
Further than tbat.when rubbing the feet and
toes it was necensary to stand on one foot
This did more than exercise the limbs lightly.
It gave the brain a mighty good lesson in
balancing, and the brain of young men work
ing in oQlce cannot well be exercised too
much in that way.
OTHER IHW89 TO DO.
lu considering these matter the young
roan bas forgotten to worry about the croas
thing the boss said during the day, and so,
no rare oppressing bim, be goes to sleep In
stead of toming about That, too, ia delight
ful and healthful. In fact, we find aa we
follow the good Influence resulting from the
use of thia plain device that one benefit leads
to another and another, so that with aucb
simple exercises aa may be taken without
any appliance the sallow, hollow chested,
fagged out, dyspeptic specimen of humanity
becomes a living proof of the sound old
adage that the glory of man I his strength.
This start on the road to improving him
self 111 an athletic way was or should be made
at ulb-ht, because the work of the day bas
left the skin in such a condition that the use
of the towel is really a luxury. Ho matter
how lazy a man may be, be is not likely to
omit an opportunity to use a crash towel
thereafter. How lung did he work with it I
Certainly two or three minutes, probably
live or six. Some men would use it ten.
But the one feeling to overcome when begin
ning with the towel ia Impatience. Young
men are likely to be in too great a hurry
to get strong. Th man In a hurry goes
off bait cocked. He due not accomplish
When a man who baa used a crash towel
wakes up In the morning be may feel better
tban usual or he may not The chances are
that no great Improvement will be noticed.
That is no cause whatever for disappoint
ment Give the crash towel time. .To help
it, adopt the habit of leaving the 'Windows
open to promote ventilation and ' add the
other habit of wearing a nightcap. With
the windows open a man is practically out of
doors. Would be go out of doors without a
When morning comes and the young man
must get up, be wishes? be was rich that
h wouldn't have to work. However need
must and out he get. Strip, and for.-once
try a towel bath. Wash the face witH, the
band, slashing the water up about the ears
and neck, and then plunge a toft little towel,
the typical boarding bouse towel, into the
bowl, give it one good wring, open it out and
rub off all the stuff that oozed from the pore
the night before, after the crash towel opened
them. Shiver Certainly. Whoop it up
quickly but not bard, and thoroughly clean
the skin. Take a dry towel and wipe the skin
off quickly, and then grasp the crash towel
a your bent friend and rub as if your life de
pended on it. Life doe depend on it If the
human machine is to last out ita full number
of Tears, it roust not be allowed to getclogged.

version of Ibe affair from that furnished
by tbe morning papers in Davenport.

About 4:80 p. m. o'clock the reporter
had occasion to ro to Karl' saloon,
southwest corner of Iowa and Third

Rock Island arsenal and Mr. Karl, tbe
cotorlous and vile Biddy McGee, who
claims she is protected by tbe police.

attracting tbe attention of Mrs. Karl.who
thereupon called tbe attention of her bus-
band, who went in answer to the sum
mons to see what was wauled, when Bid
dy informed him that she wanted to see
tbe reporter. Mr. Karl at once informed
tho reporter that the woman wanted to
see bim and be went to tbe rear door and
met tbe woman, who at once, without
warning, struck him on the forehead
with a large piece of coal she held In
ber band and retreated from the
door using the most beastly lan
guage that it could be possible for a
human being to use. Tbe reporter was
stunned from Ibe effects of the treacher
ous blow and stepped out of the door.
not making a word of complaint or at
tempting to inflict any injury on tbe in
furiated woman, when sbe.encouraged by
tbe non-resistance of tbe reporter, threw
ibe lump of coal at tbe reporter's head
which sruck him and cut a large gash in
tbe scalp. Tbe reporter entered the
room, washed bis wounds and shortly
after started for bis ho'cl west on Third
street. When opposite Lorton Brothers'
stable be entered into conversation with
Ben McCrellis. A short space of time
passed in tbe conveisation with McCrellis
when tbe reporter noticed the McGee
woman sneaking up behind bim to deal
bim another treacherous blow. Tsot de
siring to have any more injuries inflicted
on bim by tbe woman, tbe reporter turned
from tbe woman and rapidly passed along
Hearing the woman run. the reporter
ran also, when tbe McGee woman threw
her lumps of coal at the fleeing reporter,
at tbe same time using vile and beastly
language. As tbe reporter turned tbe
corner of Third and Rock Island streets.

said, "Stop!" The reporter halted in bis
flight maybe to protect his life agaiout
tbe attack of an infuriated and vile wo
man wben she appeared on tbe scene
and exclaimed, "Arrest that man! Tbe

as tbe woman, and taken to tbe station,
where she prepared for tbe occasion--produced

claimed represented $25, and was told to e
