HC8B new exercises present a
radically new system or pnysicai
culture. They are called contour
exercises, because they consist
In following the outlines of the body and
letting the system build Itself upon na
ture's own lines. No apparatus la re
quired, nor Instruction other than the
simple directions given. Tbelr division
into groups for the development of dif
ferent parts of the body la only for con
venience In presentation, aa the entire
series is so correlated that each set rein
, forces the effects of all the others, and
harmony of result will be best obtained
by Judiciously balancing the groups so
that general development will go hand-
In-hand with the more speciflo develop- -
meat. ' " -
- I am- often asked -why-exercises- are
commended for both thin and atout
people. What makes a figure faulty Is
that It Is either too thin or too fat. and
both-conditions are due to Improper

-In ene caee the lack of oroper -exer-t
else permits the deposit of fat In and
around the muscles and entirely de-
troys the clean Unea that make for
beauty. ' . - . - -
In the other ease, the leanneas Is
similarly due to lack of atlmulation by
properly diversified movements. Proper
nourishment means balance between
food and use. Too little use not too

be liberal and ahould consist largely
of food containing starch and sugar;

advised. There is nothing better than .
bicycling, unless It may be a regular
gymnastio course. In order to pur
sue the latter properly the paiient la
advised to go to a first-class gymna

take the exercises prescribed by the ,
attendant physician. These-gymnasiums,
at moderate - prices, may be
