Not illustrated. 1901 edition. Excerpt: ...who is really desirous of attaining good health will keep this exercise constantly in mind. It consists, in brief, of extending the chest, drawing the abdomen, and raising the vital organs in the upper half of the chest as high as possible and holding_ them there permanently. Persons of excessive corpulence may decrease the size of the abdomen by this exercise, accompanied by massage. The carrying of the vital organs in a raised position, not only when the mind is upon the subject, but always, is the most important fact in our physical life. All through this course of training there have been exercises and suggestions leading to this one great result. Nothing can be better, for it is certain that nothing can equal the value of this habit. The relief to the heart, the vital force given to the lungs, the freedom of the liver, and the energy imparted to the stomach, are all remarkable evidences of the overshadowing importance of nature's best exercise. _Vhen so little, which involves so much, can be performed by men and women generally, then may we hope to see a new race of physical beings occupying the earth.
