AFFECTS GOOD HEALTH
Hygiene of More Importance Than
(By Dr. A. It. Lewis, State Health
"There was a crooked man, Who
walked a crooked mile; Rut I, when
I go walking, Don't walk in crook
ed style. I keep my chin and stom
ach in. And hold my chest up higher.
And step along so straight and
strong, And never, never tire."
Have you ever thought what a
close connection there is between
posture and health? Watch your
friends for a week and my guess is
that you will be surprised at the
mass of visual evidence you will se
cure which will go to substantiate
the statement that 'good posture and
good health are synonymous."
There is a psychology about good
posture that makes the success.
Good DOSture is nlcn n.i l.,.l.. .

Again think of your acquaintances,
the ones Who stand nut nn.l nilrni
the attention of passers-by j are they
ones who walk with heads up and
chests up, or do they go along
hanging their heads and awkwardly
swinging their arms?
It is necessary for perfect health
that we use the boHv with fVin inncf
friction, the least expenditure of en
ergy, anu witn the greatest efficien
cy. Therefore to Bt.inH nrot
walk and move easily, to have all
pans oi tne body so adjusted that
easy balance and graceful use may
result, is to be desired for other rea
sons than the esthetic.
"Health and longvity depend up
on proper adjustment of the body;
and this adjustment may be effected

by studying the methods that George Washing
During the trying days of the Revolution,
the great leader was called upon time and again
to admonish the colonies to economize and
save so that they might have the resources to
attain that goal they sought Independence.
How well they succeeded in a matter of history.
You too, can attain Financial Independence if
