Imitating the movements of swim

for the back and shoulders. This is

gradually by the novice.
Perhaps the finest neck developer
In existence, v.'ith. the exception of

and lower the chin slowly and with
all your force. This is very different
from simple, unforced exercise, and
will cause a wholesome ache in the

to have to .suggest that a business

1. It Is advisable to massage the

Wrong, treatment can - easily jdo harm.
It is v not advisable to steam the face,
because by' doing so ': you destroy the
natural oils of the; skin and cause it

Sago tea will darken your hair and
prevent It from -turning gray. Make a
strong brew of dried leaves, strain the
liquid carefully through muslin, and to
