have an object in such as getting into condition for a certain how a man leading a sedentary life is trou bled with haadaches or the exer dse he woula4 be advised to indulge in would be light all round gymnastic work or for the tnmmer months The reason these exercises far excel others for snch a purpose is that theycau be taken in a very mild and at the same time call into play many A whether young or can get in a boat and pull over a taw at the same time plenty of fresh and on return ing feel that a complete change in his physi cal tone has taken He may be but still no one set of muscles will have been worked sufficiently hard to cause a down right The mere exercise of pulling an oar slowly will very seldom stiffen a of is and a tough two or three mile pull will cause a commo tion among the muscles used and the heart and lungs which will not be soon forgotten by one who is unaccustomed to such Although my forte is all round athletics I have done considerable boat atid can say that to spurt with an oar is an exercise vigorous as I ever One will of ten hear the Where did Hanian get his power and how is it that OConnor is but a medium sized and Henry who was the worlds champion at the time of his waa no bigger These three oarsmen were and are looked upon as the best the world ever Banian used to row at 156 OCon weight in condition is between 158 and UO and Henry when he beat OConnor lost fall in England and won the proud title of champion of the weighed about 1C3 There are other good oarsmen who are many pounds heavier and three or four inches taller than these three men they have a longer reach and but for the past years no big men has reacted the When I first met Hanian we engaged in conversation concerning what was necessary to keep in good condition at our respective and what he told me struck me to forcibly that 1 have thought often of the wis dom of his advice and how well one apply it to any kind of At that time I did not know quite so much about ex ereise in general as I have since and on asking him what diet he lived on and how be kept himself down in Hanian said AU these ideas about my dieting or reducing flesh are My rowing ability come simply from a continued use of certain put me on an exercise that would bring in the use of muscles other than those developed on me and I will be all at even though most people probably imagine that I am in splenoM condition and fearfully strong aU Hanian at was hi fine rowing fet and we were just about tbe seme size and weight he about twenty five pounds for he lately told me he weighed 185 pounds in athletic To continue what be told me at our first meet I remember well asking me to feel certain parts of his arm developed by the ex ercise of polling an and he said I can well

interest is taken in as is known to be the case hi Austra it is no wonder that good oarsmen are de veloped OConnor left America but a few weeks ago for Australia in search of lau and as he is well aware of the classha will have to compete the probabilities are that he will leave nothing undone to far ther perfect his rowing even though they are now very high The illustration Finish of Stroke is

gives a fair idea of the amount of motion or swing used in a full Instructors say that the only part oi the stroke where the muscles of the chests are developed is the one shown in this which to be a little more means the last six inches of the whole There is a great difference in the way oars men hold the head at the finish of a and the tendency with the majority is to poke tbe head badly forward on to the there by developing what tome inttrnctors call and which not oulf looks but is The same how can be seen in many men who never rowed a having been brought about by sitting or leaning over But

indulgence in his ex ercise will make a material change in the po sition of his head on its The question of whether or not rowing is responsible for round shoulders has been dis cussed too often to need ranch further com but I have noticed that there are more round shouldered oarsmen than any other one form of exercise will There more oarsmen to pick how There is no question that tug of war or weight lifting will tend to curve an ath letsfeback even more than for fa those exercises there is actually no way one can throw the head back when I have met some good oarsmen who were far than the average If they had not paid particular attention during the finish of the stroke to holding their heads erect and taking the opportunity to throw the chat they might show the same wry round and stooping back and flat chest which plenty oarsmen This part of the subject is most easy to ex periment and it can be fully understood by trytag the movement in a boat or on a rowing Keep the shoulders round and head thrown over all tfie as the tendency is in pulling a and then try holding the head and at the finish of the stroke throw the chest out and the shoul ders and the most inexperienced
