EXERCISE FOR ADULTS GEORGE J. FISHER, M. O. T HE history of man Is that he has always been accustomed to vigorous bodily exercise. Consequently his muscles are nbinerous and large. About half the body weight is made up by the mucles. Thus they constitute a large part of his being. Furthermore, in his development the muscles came first. Heart, lungs, liver, nervous system, all came later. They came as a result of muscle contraction. When muscles were used In a greater variety of ways then there was need for richer blood) more elaborate digestion, and a nervous system to control them. Half the brain in fact is given over to the care of the muscles. Thus we see that muscles are exceedingly important organs. They are related to all the organs of the body. They are most closely con nected with the nerves of the body and are very directly related to the brain. Well-toned, active muscles mean a good heart, strong lungs, good digestion, fine circulation, nervous control, and mental vigor. ' When the muscles get flabby and lose their tone the blood gets sluggish, the lungs lazy, the nerves jumpy, and the bruin dull. You cannot neglect thé muscles without feeling the results at many important points. Now unfortunately most of our work today does not make sufficient demand upon our muscles. A great deal of it is done sitting still or standing still, and we were never made to sit still or stand still. We were made to be physically active. Most of the big muscles are quite closely related to the legs. We should concern ourselves with leg activity. Walking, slow, running, leg bending, and body bending, and twisting from the hips are necessary. Note how quickly rapid walking or body holding affects our breathing, the heart rate, and if more prolonged, the digestion. Most of our ailments such ns indigestion, short wind, dullness of the head, are due to muscle Inactivity. Provide the activity and these will disappear. A brisk walk several times a day. Indulgence in some favorite physical-game once or twice a week, some muscle calisthenics In morning and evening, a daily sponge bath with a brisk rub will put most of us In excellent condition if practiced regularly. On the other hand to neglect this practice may result In a tendency toward sluggishness, occasional bllons attacks, chronic colds, increase of weight so characteristic now of mid-life, and shallow breathing. Borne of us too are In lines of work which tend to contract the chest, round the shoulders, bring the head forward, or push the lower part of the abdomen downward and forward, and thus lower the tone of muscles and the bodily organs which are closely related to them. In such cases exercises should be taken to counteract these conditions. All exercise should be taken with the head np, shoulders high, chest raised, and back slightly arched; when this Is done It helps to keep the body in these positions. People who may be In occupations which overexercise certain parts should by relaxation rest the parts affected. Those who stand a great deal should lie down when resting with feet slightly elevated. Rubbing of the tired parts In the direction toward the heart after a hot bath of the parts followed by cold will relieve the tension and the fatigue. Most adults need vigorous exercise of the muscles located between the shoulders and the knees. Those who wish a sjiecinl set of exercises I should advise to secure a copy of the Boy Scout Handbook. The chapter on Health and Endurance contains a good drill fot daily use. in RED GROSS WORKING FOR HEALTHIER U. S. Thousands Aided by Instruction In Qare of the Sick, Food Se lection and First Aid.

SOWING TURNIPS TO FOLLOW VEGETABLES No Better Crop to Utilize Vacant Spaces in Gardens. They Are Useful for the Table, and to a Limited Extent Will Supply Place of Potatoes—Reasona bly Rich Soil Needed. (Frpptired by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) As a crop to utilize garden space after early vegetables have been har vested, nothing Is better than turnips. Turnips should be planted In most parts of the country about July 25, but in the extreme South as late us the last of August and can be left in tha ground until after several light frosts or all winter in the South. They are useful as a table vegetable, and to a limited extent, will supply the place of potatoes. It is the general opinion of specialists of the United Slates De partment of Agriculture that the American public could consume many more turnips than it does, a fact of particular interest this year when there seems every Indication of a cur tailed potato crop. For field sowing, turnips are usually broadcasted. The particular require ment Is a reasonably rich soil finely raked and leveled off to avoid water collecting in pools. The seed should be sowed sparingly. One homely rule is to take the quantity which seems sufficient and divide it in half. After the seeds have been scattered on the surface of the ground, they should be raked in. This may be done by drag ging a piece of brush over the ground. 'Hie surface should be well smoothed. It is a good plan to sow turnips Just after a rain, giving them opportunity to sprout before a crust forms. After sowing, they will need little attention until harvest. Condemned.

Financial Loss Caused by Presence of Impurities, Foreign Matter or High Moisture Content—Ele vator Not at Fault. (Prepared by the United States Depart ment of Agriculture.) While equipment for cleaning and conditioning grain Is expensive, coun try elevators will find that its use fre quently Improves the quality of the grain and increases its market value, say specialists of the bureau of mar kets, United States Department of Agriculture. Sometimes grain comes to the elevator in poor condition, often being dirty, dusty, or with high moisture content, and unless the qual ity Is improved by cleaning or drying the grain cannot be disposed of ad vantageously. Moreover, grain containing impur ities, foreign matter, or a high mois ture content Is quite likely to become hot in transit, which greatly reduces its value and frequently results in serious financial loss. If the elevator is not provided with suitable equip ment for this process, such grain must be shipped in the condition In which it Is received. The farmer should not place all re sponsibility for cleaning grain on the elevator. It Is believed. It should be remembered that elevator managers do not pay grain prices for the dirt and water found in a farmer's grain. The price should be established by taking into consideration the neces sary expense of placing the grain In marketable condition. The farmer who delivers clean, dry. sound grain should receive a premium over the price paid to the more careless farm er who delivers grain of Inferior qual ity. specialists sny.
