CHURCH AND GYMNASIUH
Extensive Itepalra to the Presbyterian
Outdoor GymnitHlum deeded
The repairs on the Presbyterian church
are about completed The work that
has been done is of a substantial charac
ter Twenty new brick piers have been
pt under the hnrch so that now the
building is resting on a solid foundation
Then it has been plastered and calsom
ned
The further repairs contemplated are to
revarnish the wood work also putting
in new glass where needed and the
fitting up of the large rear room as a
gymnasium
There has been over tiSO spent already
and to complete the work it will cost
about 25 more
The gymnasium is principally for th
us of the children of the unday school
hot it is not intended that anyone shall
be excluded that cares to come It will
he open evenings to the general public
nod it is has been thought best to charge
u small fee For adults 1 entrance and
Jo cents per month children 2 > cents
entrance and 10 cents per month
The training of the children will be
conducted by llr Hughe The instruc
tion will be in Indian club swinging and
physical culture and dumb bells and
wand exercises will also be a part of
the training
The object of the work is to develop a
symmetrical growth of the whole body i
here will be no attempt at developing
special feats of strength j hut the one
object above all others is Health
Mr Hughes desire it understood that
what he has done or intends to do is
only intended as a beginning When the
young men of our city are willing to
erect or procure a suitable building for a
firstclass gymnasium he will then help
them all that he can Hut in out de
lightful climate with its genial unshine
there is no necessity for us to wait to
erect a line building Vhy not have an
open air gymnasium This could be haul
at very hull expense comparatively A
vacant lot on the river front could hi
serves and dressing and bathing room
built t nil most of the apparatus could
lie made right here
Mr Hughes Urvd to exerise in the
Charles River Hunk Open Air Uym
nasium lV lon and would be willing to I
give any aid that he could in helping
start and carry on the work
Now is the time to begin to make our
Huh burg one of the most deaimMe
places on the east oast With what na
ture has done for us it would not need
much to make thin a new paradise to
t I w winter visitor
Physical iraming is in the air It is
Upcoming a crime to be weak Why not
Titusville be the first to open its doors
for a training ground to the northern
athlete where while he is training he
can also enjoy the hunting fishing ami
sailing thai is so delightful here
