Consistent exercise is the key to long
life, and 90 per cent of the deaths
among business men after 40 years of
age are traceable to nervous disorders,
brought about by too Intense applica
tion to mental work without the coun
teracting effect of physical training.
Fifty business men at luncheon at
the Portland association yesterday
heard Dr. J. H. McCurdy, head of
the physical education department of
the Springfield Young- Men's Christian
Association training school, - declare
that the span of life may be increased
several years by proper physical training.
'The Portland Y. M. C. A. has more
business men in its classes than any
other institution in the country In pro
portion to its population," said Dr. Mc
Curdy. "We have learned increased
business efficiency and production, but

the wardrobes are arranged along the

We want to move, but we can't. THE STORE ISN'T READY.
The improvements at 131-133 Sixth street are largely in the hands of
contractors for the holding. They have disappointed us lime and time
again, and now the city engineering office steps in and causes delay.
