GIVE THE LUNGS PLENTY OFFRESH, PURE AIR
: IF'
b By Mrs. Anita Norris.
l I wish all women would breathe
-I properly. I know they would reap
- a bountiful "reward.
-' Have you ever tried deep
" breathing? Wonderful benefits
-I come as a direct result of giving
-t the lungs plenty of fresh, pure
ii air.

.e muscles gradually strengthen,
i your eyes glow like twin stars,

mistaken. Normal breathing
doe's not exercise the lungs suffi-8-ciently
to entirely expand and
" build them up, nor does it supply
the-blood with the amount of
oxygen necessary to fully purify
it.
o You must learn to breathe con
sciously if you desire perfect
health.
You cannot become an expert
v'in deep breathing in a moment:

s' ing in deep, slow breaths as you
svork or play, it won't be long be-
