Little Talks on Health and Hygiene
By Samuel O. Dixon. M. D.,
D., Commissioner of Health
*■ *
Atlas bore the weight of the heaven*
upon his head and hands, affording to
n Greek myth, but those of mankind
who carry the burden of life, too often
lot it rest upon their shoulders. Stoop
shouldered men and women by th<
thousands are to be found among the
followers of sedentary occupations.
Nine oat of ten when the subject is
mentioned will square away ■ their
Shoulders anil say, "I'm getting a lit
tle careless about that." Then they
make a momentary resolve that they
will brace up and overcome the fault.
That it is a fault and one that has a
• ustiut't bearing upon health there is
no question.
No system .>f physical culture is
complete which does not include exer
cises which .teach erect carriage an I
deep breathing. One of these is im
possible without the other. In this lies
the chief ill effect of stoop shoulders.
To maintain good health we sluiuld
use cur lungs to their normal capacity
• t all times. The proper purification
of the blood through oxygenation re
quires ample brent hiug. Prop your
shoulders forward and then try to take
n full breath; see how impossible it is
to do so iu that position. Breathing
v.'th the shoulders forward an i the
breast bone depressed is only partially
accomplished. The lower portion of
tne lungs cannot he emptied and in
stead of receiving a supply of fresh
air they will be tilled with residual air.
To work, sit or walk day after day
with "the shouiders hunched forward,
means that the lung capacity is les
sened just so much and A corresponding
loss of vitality results.
Such a posture aiso permits the sng
ging of the diaphragm, a resulting di>
placement of the abdominal organs and to serious digestive disturbances.
Do not resort to shoulder braces or
other mechanical menus to correct
stooping shoulders. These are but
makeshifts which o not remedy the
real trouble. Make the mental effort
necessary to keep the body erect. By
maintaining proper posture the muscles
can be strengthened and made to do
taeir work of holding the body up
When children exhibit a tendency to
g. - ow stoop shouldered parents and
teachers should see to it that they are
j.iven physical exercises to correct the

Only Per Cent, of Last Year's Crop
in Hands of Lancaster Growers
Lancaster, Pa.. March 22.—The leaf
tobacco dealers of Lancaster have at j
last commenced their long delayed buy- :
iug of the 1914 crop of Lancaster'
county, but it is a question now how '
much best quality goods thev will get.'
Xor will they get it at as low pries
as they had calculated upon, though
the prices they are receiving are very
I much too low for the growers. The bis j
outsi le concerns have bought fully 6o j
1 per cent, of the crop, and another 10 !
| per cent, has been taken by locai
packers, leaving 23 per cent, still in
the growers' hands.
It is significant of the changed con
dition of the Lancaster tobacco mar
ket that prior to the last three or four
years the entire crop was either soldi
on the field, before the plants were cut,.
or before the Christmas holidays. The !
last few years plenty of growers had ■
their tobacco on hand up to the time i
the spring work on the farm began, i
which was a serious handicap, as the
care of the tobacco took them from -
other very necess.v.y work. The crops
sold the early ;-Urt of the present sea- 1
son brought fiom 9 to 10 cents, prob- j
ably a fourth of the tobacco bringing
this, while those sold recently did not
bt;ng more than 6. 7 or 8 cents a
pound. The last named figure was for I
tobacco that the grower could have
sold early in the season for 10 cents, i
but it was held for better prices. Grow
ers, alike with the packers and cigar
manufacturers, looked for a spring'
boom, but as this appears backward
about coming the growers are now
anxious to sell. As the new tobacco j
was cured under very unfavorable
weather conditions, a good deal of con
cern is felt by the packers over the
question of it going through the sweat |
properly, failure to do so entailing
heavy losses upon the owner.
