We will take the edges first, be
cause they are the bases of all figure
skating. Remember always to make
your figures large that is essential
to the beginner.
In beginning the right outside
edge, stand with feet together. Start
by pressing with the edge, not the
point, of the left skate.
Turn the body so the right shoul
der is almost directly over the right
foot Hold right arm well up and
curved around the breast about six
inches away, and extend the left arm
directly behind the body.
Hold this position for one-half the
circle. Then slowly carry the bal
ance foot forward past the skating
foot, turning the toe in and bending
the knee of the balance foot as it is
brought forward. Turn the body
jradually as the left foot takes new
position. The edge is 'finished with
fhe left foot held quite high above
the right
The inside edges are much easier.
Start for the right inside forward
circle with a push of the edge of the
left skate. '
At start of figure twist shoulders
toward the right, bringing the left
shoulder forward. Keep this position
for about one-quarter of the circle,
when you bring the shoulders slowly
square with the print (the mark
made on the ice by the skate) and
from this point on bring the right
shoulder slowly forward until at the vw
end of the figure the shoulders are
almost in line with the print.
To coinplete an inside edge circle,
bring the balance leg slowly forward
and carry it past the skating lg,
swaying the body from a forward to
a backward balance. Bend the
knee of the balance leg as it passes
the-skating foot, then carry the bal-

Swing the arms slowly across to
the left of the body as the balance
leg swings forward. Finish the fig
ure as close to the starting point as

(Copyright, 1916, by tthe Newspaper
tnierpnse Association.;
Both my nurse and doctor have
told me the chief cause of infant
mortality is excessive and irregular
My doctor said: "Most babies are
literally killed by mistaken kindness.
If a child cries from overfeeding, Its
mother feeds it again and Its little
stomach is kept distended, then
when the child begins to hiccough,
the mother flies to the sugar bowl
a' remedy worse tharithe disease."
' My nurse says that when a baby
begins to develop stomach trouble
it is her plan to give the digestive
organs a complete rest of from six to
12 hours, giving nothing except a
teaspoonful of cool water every 15
or 20. minutes, and that she keeps
the child outdoors as much as pos
sible. She tells me that when this meth
od is strictly carried out all nausea
and vomiting will cease and a small
amount of nourishment may be giv
en and it vVill be found the baby will
retain and digest it
This Ib the method I shall pursue
with my baby if she needs it
My nurse tells me constipation, as
well, is generally due to overfeeding.
The. tiny stomach, overburdened
with, food, cannot digest properly
each new supply of milk vftiich comes
in contact with semi-digested coag
ula of the preceding meal and the
mass will pass into Vie Intestinal
