He waited on table, and also received $4 a month for going to a certain house on Hillhouse Avenue every evening at six o'clock, where it was his task to carry an invalid woman upstairs. Besides the $4, she gave him a red apple and a religious tract every night, thirty times a month, for about eight months in the year. “Is it any wonder," asks the "Post," "that he appears serious!"

The competition of the automobile with small railways is illustrated by the statement that two short branch lines in New England have been abandoned by their owners. One of these, the Franconia Railway, it is said, averaged only two passengers per train last year, and another, the Jefferson, only three. Both roads are in the White Mountains.


A newspaper despatch says that the Harvard Glee Club, which has been touring Europe, received an especially enthusiastic welcome in Geneva because the papers of that city had apparently been in doubt as to what the word "Glee" meant, and on looking it up in an English dictionary found the definition "gayety, merriment, delight." They therefore assumed that the Club had been sent to downhearted Europe to restore its gayety, and welcomed it as having that mission. Perhaps they were more than half right.

Day Keeps Me Fit

By Walter Camp Famous Yale Coach's “Daily Dozen" Exercises

Now on Phonograph Records


cise at all. You can not do that. Do not go to a gymnasium. That tires you to death. That is old-fashioned. We do not have to do that any more. A man or woman can keep himself or herself fit with

of caged animals. They know how to keep themselves fit-and they do it, too.

How? Simply by constantly stretching and turning and twisting the trunk or body muscles ! When Mr. Camp discovered that men and women can imitate the caged animal with enor

mous profit to their health, he devised the “ Daily Dozen” to provide this in. dispensable exercise-the only exercise people really need to keep in proper condition.

Many people have written to Mr. Camp. telling him of the benefits they have received. Here is part of one letter:

"For four years I was a nery. ous wreck, with Collitis, rapid pulse, etc. After spending large sums on physicians, X-rays, etc., I found out about your exercises. Within ten days after first using them, I was able to go to Boston and take up my law business and have been at it ever since. Other systems of exercise have bored me so I couldn't continue them, but yours I can't stop. Thanking you again for setting me on my feet, I am very truly yours,

* PRESCOTT F. HALL.” Walter Camp's improved system of health-building now includes the entire ** Daily Dozen" exercises, set to specially selected music, on large 10-inch double-disc phonograph records ; twelve handsome charts, printed in two colors, with over 60 actual photographs illustrating each movement of each exercise ; and a little book by Walter Camp explaining the new principles of his famous system.

Any man or woman who exercises with this system regularly, even if it is

only six or seven minutes a day, will feel better and look better, and have more endur. ance and pep" than they have had since they were in their 'teens-and they will find those few minutes the best fun of their day.

WALTER CAMP. Originator of the Famous “Daily Dozen" System.

NE night during the war I was

sitting, in the smoking compartment of a l'ullman sleeping-car when a

man came in and said, "Mr. Camp?" I told him I was, and he continued, Well, there is a man in the car here who is in very bad shape, and we wondered if you could not do something for him."

" What is the matter?” I asked.

" This fellow is running up and down the aisle in his pajamas," the man said, "trying to get them to stop

the train to let him get some dope because he hasn't slept for four nights."

I went back in the car and found a man about 38 years old, white as a sheet, with a pulse of 110, and twitching all over. I learned that he had been managing a munitions plant and had broken down under the work because he had transgressed all the laws. of nature, and given up all exercise, and had been working day and night.

* For God's sake," he said to me, “ can't you put me to sleep? If somebody can only put me to sleep!” Ile was standing all bent over.

* Don't stand that way, stand this way!" I said, and I straightened him up and started putting him through a few exercises to stretch his body muscles. Pretty soon the color gradually began to come back into his face, and the i twitching stopped. Then I said to him, “I I am going to put you through the whole set of ‘Daily Dozen' exercises once. Then I : am going to send you back to your berth."

So I did that and didn't hear any more from him, but the next morning he came to me in the dining car and said:

You don't leave this train until you've taught me those exercises. I slept last night for the first time in five nights."

I taught him the “ Daily Dozen" and two months later I got a letter from him, saying:

* My dear good Samaritan, I am back i on the job all right again, and I am teaching everybody those exercises."

The Daily Dozen" was originally devised as a setting-up drill for picked young inen--the boys who were in training during the war. But its greatest value is for those men and women who are hemmed in between four walls most of the time and are beginning to realize that their bodies aren't as fit as their minds.

I applied it to middle-aged men, and men past middle age too, during the war-including members of the cabinet in Washington--who simply bad to do much more work than they were used to doing, without breaking down. In the “ Daily Dozen " I soon found I had something that would actually increase their reserve power. They grew progressively more fit as we went along.

People think that they can take an orgy of exercise and make up for a long period of neglect when they do not take any exer

six or seven minutes a day. There is no reason why a man at 30 or 60 or 70 should not be supple; and if he is supple, then he grows old very slowlybut the place where he must look after himself is in his body muscle8.-WALTER CAMP.

Mr. Camp is famous as a great Yale foot. ball coach, trainer, and athletic authority, but few people know that he is also a successful business man, being president of the New Haven Clock Company. Although sixty years old he is stronger and more supple than most younger men, and he uses bis own “ Daily

exercises regularly in order to remain so.

Since the war, the “ Daily Dozen " has been making busy men and women fit and keeping them so—and the exercises are now proving more efficient than ever—due to a great improvement in the system. This is it :

With Mr. Camp's permission all the twelve exercises have been set to music-on phonograph records that can be played on any disc machine.

In addition, à chart is furnished for each exercise-showing by actual photographs the exact movements to make for every one of the “ commands "—wbich are given by a voice speaking on the record. So now you can make your phonograph keep you fit.

With these records and charts a man or woman can keep himself or herself fit with only a few minutes' exercise a day-- and it is so much fun that some of the “ Daily Dozen fans go through the whole twelve exercises to the spirited music tucice every morning—just as a matter of sheer enjoyment.

Mr. Camp says that the place where we must look after ourselves is in the body or trunk muscles.

This is so because we are all in reality “ caged animals." When a man stops hunting and fishing for his food and earns it sitting at a desk he becomes a captive animaljust as much as a lion or a tiger in the Zoo Sand his trunk muscles deteriorate because they cease to be used. Then comes constipation, and other troubles which sacage men never have.

The remedy is to imitate the “ exercises "

You can see for yourself what Walter Camp's New Way to Exercise will do for you-without a dollar of expense.

“Oh, but the gods are kind to inspire persons like Rafael Sabatini to turn out, every once in a while, a glorious yarn, like 'Scaramouche'-a story of romance and adventure of sufficiently stirring qualities to turn the clock backwards to those dream-laden days when first made the acquaintance of d'Artagnan . By all means make the acquaintance of Scaramouche, and if this impudent, cynical, witty, resourceful, undaunted and stupendously attractive young fellow doesn't capture your heart in three chapters, you are referred to the Encyclopaedia Britannica for your summer reading."-Detroit Saturday Night.
