Lunch I omitted wholly. In addition
I walked at least six miles every day
and did all sorts of stunts In my room
with a gymnasium out lit. Prior to
going to bed I perpctratod all sorta
of muscular contortions and rolled
on the floor till my body was bruised.
At the end of thirty daya I felt fit
to run a threo-mtlu foot-raco or go In

CHARACTER SHOWS IN BACKS
Straight and Upright Carriage Means)
You Are Determined, Bnereetlo
If your back la straight and upright
you are correspondingly straight In
your conduct. You will hold your head
up, for you nre not afraid to look the
world In tho face.
Hvcn when you'ro sitting you keep
your back straight. Thoro Is an air of
real strength about you both physical
and mental. In short, you have plenty
of backbone. You nro dotormlncd, en
crgctlc and to bo relied upon.
If your back Is stooping and round
ed you nro a creature as weak as yoif
look, you nro prone to lolling aboutj
and too Inzy or too feeblo to tako a
(rout rank In tho battlo of llfo. Tho
tramp Is nn excellent example.
If you nro a criminal, your back Is
stooped or round, but tho scholarly
stoop of tho bookworm must not be(
confounded with tho foregoing. Thoro(
Is a dlfferenco which In difficult to de
scribe, but It Is readily recognized by,
tho close observer.
If you nro mean and covetous your'
back Is narrow and rounded and your
shoulders are high. Yoti nro sly

PURE FOOD LAW NOT MODERN
Centuries Ago Tradesmen Who Adul

Pure food liuvs aro not qulto so
modern an Invention as wo may be

wonder vhnt tests wero emploed and
what would happen to tho man whoso
oil was found to bo not pure. Prob
ably something unpleasant, for thoro
wub no Supremo court In those days.
We know what happened In tho mid
dle ages to tho enterprising tradesman
who adulterated his goods. In 1444
a Nuremberg merchant was burned
alive for mating foreign mnterlal with
his saffron and the saffron Itself was
used for fuel. Probably that artistic
touch impressed tho matter upon hla
Some Augsburg bakers who used
false weights and bad flour were
ducked In a muddy pool, and through
a faulty knowledge of the human re
spiratory system, or sheer careless
ness, they came to the surface dead,
In 1482 a wine merchant waa or
dered to drink six quarts of hla own
adulterated wine, and as he died soon
after it is evident that the adultera
tion muat have been serious. It is
true' that he had to finish the draft In
a given number of minutes, and
small number at that, but la those
days they had a pleasant way ol
weighing tha scales and loading tha
dice upon tha sida of Justice.

Remarkable Popular Ignsrancs.
Some one has remarked that at
the height of Napoleon's fame there
were men In the back alleys of Paris
who had never heard his name. This
Illustration of popular Ignorance was
recalled by a Judge who waa examin
ing candidates for cltlssnshlp In New
York city recently. He asked one of
these prospective cltliens, "Who li
the head of your native couatryf",
"The king." "Who becomes the head
whsn hs dies?" "His son." "And
who Is the head of this country r
"The president." "And who would
become the head If he dledr "Hla'
son." And yet, as the Judge remark'
ed, all these men know enough to
earn their dally bread the rest Is ft
matter of schooling.
