By Capt. Charles T. Boyd. HE tendency among students is to \stoop and it Is not surprising that til-health should follow such a habit. In the military training the\' young man is required to make an effort to stand erect. H e is expected to carry his head set squarely on his shoulders, that his outlook on life may be one of directness and consequent fearlessness. His shoulders are required to be TSVen ana\TIaT and upright, ready to bear responsibilities with resolute will. He Is required to carry his chest well up, giving his lungs space in which to live a healthy life and -fill themselves with pure ai r Finally the student Is required to walk with his legs alone, using neither his srloulders, his arms nor his hands to aid his movements In walking. I Now, to acquire an erect carriage is no easy matter, un\ess one has been instructed in i t from boyhood days; but i f being upright In one thing helps a person in being upright in another, should not the being upright in carriage help a_person in being upright in character? And is the result not worth the effort? I n any case, erectness of carriage is one of the results of the military training in the colleges of _,our country. The trouble with the average American who earns his bread by the sweat of his brain is that he does not sufficiently exercise his body He gives himself little or no time in which to get out of the rut of his especial calling. His mind frequently becomes narrow, and his body oftentimes be­ comes diseased. H e should, every day, when hls^ work ceases, give his attention t o some form of bodily exercise, entering into it heartily and con­ tinuing it steadily. He will then enjoy his -food and rest, and will be able to begin 'another day's work; with his mind clear and his body alert. For those #ho engage in college athletics no physical recreation Is, of course, necessary( but for those who forego athletics, exercise, either In the gym­ nasium, o r elsewhere,, mnst b e provided. Habits of_ exercise early acquired are easily continued, and us- the mind becomes more -vljftrouB, so will the liody; for i t the body be weak, or diseased It will lessen the faculties of the mind—and will, as a rule, prevent the accomplishment of the desires of am­ bition.—St Nicholas. • The Professions Have BECOME f| A woman has faith that a man can protect neF from burglars, but \knowr nothing on earth can from mice, ob­ serves the New York Press.

H K LINE, Ltd ,981 Arch St .Pbila ,Pn 'Business, Propositions 1 By the Editor of Scribner's. |OT ao long ago, th e sneer of \un-democratlc\ was Wont to gieet the claim that certain classes of officials who render service' ot first importance t o the community, but of a kind to preclude \opportunities for money-making—for example, judges and dlplo mats—should receive salaries commensurate with the social post sltlon attaching t o the office. Now that claim Is discussed seriously and ^ynrpaEhetically In—the-press- and—in- Trrivate talk {T'he public is also coming to' appreciate the passing of 'professional caste or prestige, the \standing\ of professional men as such,, as entailing no small loss to the community. Beyond question this standing was. once a compensa­ tion to many men for foregoing what President Porter of Yale used to call \vulgar success.\ Probably this passing- or professional prestige is as much due to the inroads of commercialism On the professions as t o the general disposi­ tion t o define success in terms of dollars, Tjbe fees charged by an eminent doctor or lawyer, the cash, value put on the skill o f an expert _engiiujer_or architect, the prices p»Id to a great painter, the profits received by -the author |»of a successful novel ox play, all tend almost steathily to turn professional work Into a \business proposition.\ Thua are ellmlted the few professional men whose work is any sense altruistic or ethical, notably the clergyman, the teacher, the student, the'scientist, the essayist, the poet nnd the publicist. The old doctrine of plain living rfnd high thinking as their-own satisfaction doubt­ less still suffices for a J saving remnant.
