To have our bodies strong, exer cise I;; necessary and this applies to the strongest as well as the weak est. People who indulge In it are better mentally and physically. Exercise is advantageous to young and old. The weak, the strong, the heavy and the thin all gain immeas urably by it. The most desirable kind of exercise Is that which Is beneficial, pleasing and safe. The more spirit put Into it the greater the results to mind snd to body. Are Your Teeth Sound and (lean? Many a man, who would he in suited and ready to fight if you told him he was dirty, goes through life complacent and unashamed, with dirty teeth. Many a man. who would grow sick with horror and disgust If he saw the flesh of his hand or face gradu ally decaying, witnesses without concern the daily disintegration of his teeth. Why should this be? Why do some men bathe, shave, have their hair cut and wear decent clothes, and yet neglect their teeth? Why do they not realize that decayed teeth are not only unpleasant to look at. creative of bad breath and a grea* handicap In mastication, but a serious menace to health? Teeth, unless kept clean, are breeding places for germs. Teeth rot because food Is allowed to stay between them, creating a destruc five acid which eats its way through the enamel and starts a cavity (Jerms, which are always present in the mouth, do the rest. The possibilities of this condition, if not corrected by proper care and dentistry, nre manifold. The whole tooth may be destroyed, the infec tion gradually extending to other teeth. It may even go so far as to pass into the Jaws, causing poison Ing of the bone. This is a serious j condition, and very apt to involve much pain and acme surgery. A good digestion is often ruined by bad teeth. As research and the art of diagnosis along this line pro gress, all sorts of distressing and debilitating conditions are being traced to bad teeth. Igist but not least, there is the ever-present danger of toothache, which everyone will agree is no fun! To care for a normally healthy set of teeth is not difficult. It does not involve much time or trouble or expense. First —Clean them morning and night with a brush and tooth-pow der. Brush up and down, not across the teeth. I>o not brush too hard Brush not only to clean, but to re move thoroughly the food which has accumulated between them.

M.trual Training and Physical Training and Penmanship. Twenty-Elghth Year. Opens August 25th Everyone should take some form of exercise dally and In hot weath er our minds naturally turn to ex ercise outdoors, which la the boat. Take your exercise In the open air If possible and where the air is purest and freshest If practicable. It Is not necessary to Indulge In any form of violent exercise out doors Neither is it essential that you lift heavy weights. Begin grad ually. Increase the amount until you think you ar etaklng sufficient. Exercise that produces perspira tion and fatigue, not exhaustion, de velops an appetite and Induces sleep, Is the kind to Indulge In. Walking is the cheapest, simplest and best form of exercise. Swim ming and rowing follow Golf, base ball, tennis, quoits, handball, moun tain climbing, horseback riding are good warm weather exercises. Anyga me or match in which you are engaged makes you forgot any labor thai might be attached to the exercise you take. not be afraid to brush the gums moderately. Second —Rinse the mouth after denning with a teaspoonful of cook ing soda in a glass of water. Rinse the mouth thoroughly with water after meals. Third—Go to a reputable dentlet at least once a year and let him fill such cavities as may have formed. If you have been neglecting your teeth, do so no longer. Go to a dentist Immediately. Let him make a start. If you cannot afford to pay for the work all at once, pay for It gradually. The most Important thing Is to go’—Committee on Medical Bu reau.
