M; C. sinm. class in their pyramid building tunts that are to be. seen in .the store windows about the city, give only-a ery partial living pyra- mids. There are several formations that will be shown at the exhibition on March the second, and on which a good deal of practice is being, put at the'gym: Some of these are the parallel'bar pyramid, the short arm. and full .arm pyramid, the "squash" and many-oth- ers.
