Over in Brootlyn is a little man with
a gigantic chest and marvelously strong
muscles. He is the founder of a new
system of physical education. Thirty
two years ago, when he was wearing his
first knickerbockers, lie was so puny
that hia parents thought it was hardly
worth while to encounge him to go on
living. Today, although lie is small he
is as strong as a bulldog and delights in
amusing his friends aud astonishing
strangers by lying Hat ou his back and
lifting up 240 pound men ut arm's
length. He thinks the custom of put
ting young Americans through a course
of calistbf nic and gymnastic exercises
is all w rong.
"The present system is wrong.1 from
beginning to end," be said to a reporter.
"Pick up a six months old infant," be
added, "hold him in an unstrained up
right position, and yon will find that
his spine is perfectly straight. As soon
as the child begins to wtlk the spine be
gins to curve. Why? Vhe weight of
the abdomen causes the lower part of
his back the 'hollow of his back,' bo
called to sink forward and sag down.
There is error number one. Subsequent
physical training takes no notice of it
"You w"1 find, too, that an infant in
arms has t power, while sitting bolt
upright, of putting his foot, or at least
a part of it, in his mouth. . This is be
cause his hip joint is perfectly free and
flexible. He loses this flexibility almost
from the moment he begins to walk.
The ordinary system of athletic or
calisthenic training takes no notice of
this loss.
"Now, 1 claim that above all else a
child should be taught how to stand and
hovr to breathe. Xext he should be
insii acted m to the proper way of using
every muscle and joint. Teach him
those things and he will be a graceful)
healthy, strong man. , Neglect them
and while he may become temporarily
strong his power is neither lasting nor
conducive to lonj litis and vigor.
. "Aothing is more important than to
teach children the general principles of
right development It is a mere make
shift to bring forward calisthenics.
Only a small minority of the children
in classes for physical training g-'ve any
rigor or meaning to the few insignifi
cant movements of the arms. Most of
the boys and almost all of tbe girls
make merely superficial movements,
with no sense of the meaning and no
feeling of exhilaration. If anything
has been said to tbe children about
breathing no effect is visible, If any
thing has been said about the carrirge
of the body the instruction has been
confined to an injunction to Iteep back
the shoulders.'
"In a nervous effort to obey the latter
injunction children are often found
with hollowed backs and shoulder blades
driven in against the spine. When the
shoulders are violently and persistently
thrown back the shoulder blades almost
meet. They press on the spine and jr.m
the upper part of it forward. This
effect is simply unavoidable.
"if a child is sent to school at the age
of 5 or 6 the teacher should watch him
at his desk to make sure that be main
tains an erect position. It will be found
that if tbs head is kept properly held
erect the chin is bound to draw up tbe
breast bone. By holding the body erect
aud straight the child will find it easy
to breathe in the costal way that in,
with the upper part of the cliest. Tills
I claim is the proper way to breathe
Of course it is not easy to learn all this
at once, but a careful teacher by taking
pains could soon ' bring her class into
such a condition that tbey would find
it easier to stand, walk and tit right
than srong. '
"It is not necessary to spend any
special half hour a day in teaching
these things, t The instructor who is
with children ail the time is the one to
keep them standing or sitting properly.
'Folding the arms,' the present atti
tude of respectful attention, is one that
cramps the chest und the breathing ap
paratus. It shonl't never, be practiced.
LeJ the teacher ins:.-.ict her children to
keep the upper point of the forehead
and the most prominent part of the
chest always uplifted, as if trying to
push up through the ceiling. A word
now and again will soon inculcate the
right sort of carriage. Let nil bending
forward be done from the hip joint
not from tbe waist Tbe back bone
need not and should not be bent in
stooping to pick up snythlag.

New York World. ,
Montana C'hivulry.
Now and then you will find a man
who will bully aud fight at the same
time, says the New York Sun. Such a
chap was "top-Shouldered liiH," as we
called him in Montana. He was ugly,
quarrelsome and a braggart, but be
would have fought ten men as soon as
one. For two years he had a revolver
where he coidd drop his hand onto it in
a second, and the half dozen chaps who
were locking to get tlie drop on him
had to keep on waiting. One day, how
ever, Bill's shooter got out of repair and
he gave it to a miner to be fixed. In
stead of waiting for it he wandered
down to a saloon where the hard uns
congregated, and it wasn't a quarter of
an hour before he set out to pick a fuss
with a new rivaL He just ached to kill
somebody, and when he nettlfcd the
stranger into "talking back" he reached
for his gun to pop hi m. 1 1 is gun wasn't
there. When Bill realized it he turned
as white as snow, thinking his time
had come. The stranger had drawn on
him, you see, aud he carried a wicked
look in his eyes.
"Well," he asked, as Bill raised his
hands. . , , - r
"I haven't any gun." j
"I see. Leave it somewhere ? !
"Verytareless in you. I've got the
calL" -
"You hey." ; ' " ' '
"You are a bad man and I ought 1o
shoot you through the head, but 1 don't
like tlds coldblooded business. Hold
up your right hand and spread out the
fingers." ,
"Stranger, don't do it."
"Either that or I'll put six bullets in
to your heart! Spread '("
Bill held up his right hand and three
reports followed each other like the
ticking of a clock. Each finger was
shot off at the first joint.
"That'll do," said the man, as he low
ered his weapon. "You can't pull trig
ger with nothing on that hand and be
fore you can learn to shoot left-handed
some one will bury you."
He went out and away, and Bill sert
for a doctor and sat therejnnd cried like
a boy. Next day he left without a word
to any of us, and we always believed
he jumped off House cliff into the
creek, which was then on a flood.
The Suicidal Mania.
Cushiug, a retired physician.
some interesting facts about
"Not once in a hundred times," said
he, "do either men or women kill them
selves while in the presence of anotner
person. The tendency of the suicidal
mania is always towards solitude. That
is why, in all the asylums of the land,
people who have a disposition to kill
themselves are always kept together,
and there is no danger then."
"Another remarkable fact is," added
another physician, who jolued in the
conversation, "that people who attempt
suicide aud fail are almost afraid to die.
When I was a young doctor in a hos
pital, we used to sometimes play pranks
on men who had a tendency to kill
themselves. I recall a very interesting
ease which happened not long ago, A
man was carried into the institution
who attempted twice in one day to
commit suicide.
"Let us see," said I to another physi
cian' 'how badly this man wants to die.'
- "I handed him a harmless mixture, of
widen he fare the man a good dose. I
turned quickly around, snatched the
bottle out of his hand and said, so that
