There is no thrill equal to that of coasting through crisp, cold aijr, and certainly nothing more healthful.

Today we know that vitamin D is most important in the treatment of ricketsy And it may be absorbed into 'the Tjbdy in any one of several ways; Irradiation by the short or invisible rays of the sun, causing the body to develop its own vitamin D, is one way. Ultraviolet rays, developed artificially from a carbon arc or mercury vapor quartz lamp, has a similar effect. These same rays may be permitted to act on a chemical substance called ergosterol, producing a concentrate of vitamin D, which, in turn, may be added to milk. Food may be irradiated and develop vitamin D out of its own chemical content, or cows may be fed irradiated yeast and give milk containing vitamin D. And, of course, cod liver or other fish oils rich in vitamin D may be taken. Remember, however, that in addition to this valuable vitamin, the growing body should have enough calcium and phosphorus in the diet to aid in formation of bones and teeth a process which, incidentally, needs proper action glands. of the parathyroid Certain streets may be roped off and forbidden the motorist, or tracks made in parks where sport is comparatively safe. There are, of course, places to skate but usually they are either too far for the average youngster to reach, or indoors where admission makes it prohibitive. I take off my hat to those communities that flood empty lots in a freeze, . or scrape off frozen ponds shrouded . in snow that makes the skate blade- useless. The power of the parent has never j yet been tested. But combined it is ' potent enough to get almost anything ] desired. When community treasuries ' are empty, or too empty to make the world safe for children, there is nothing to prevent a few householders from getting together, all chipping in to defray work. The expense would be nothing. Do pleas watch the river or lake with thin ice. Heip prevent the tragedies that usually mark the winter.

Here are three that might easily prove worth your while. "The String Glove Mystery," by Harriette R.

"Could he fight? Was be tough?" "Smith did 142 pounds ringside for Lavinge in San Francisco and had to ask the Kid's brother to stop it. A month later he beat Billy Stift. a heavy, in Chicago. And he ws fresh from good drunk. "Mysterious Billy fractured his left arm in licking a tough sailor at Ihc old Polo A. C. Just as the break commenced to knit properly Billy Roche was offered a $2500 purse, split 25 and 75 to pit his man against Geo. Green, a remarkable performer on the Corbett - Fitx, Dal - Hawkins-Flatery program at Carson City. "Roche turned it down. Smith was furious when he heard about it, in- •isting that Roche go through and removed the splints just long enough to scrap Green. The arm broke anew the first time he let his left go and he was forced to surrender in the 12th round. He fairly murdered Green in 25 heats at the Lenox A. C. a year- later. Griffo Slipped Spittoons "Smith and a Young Mahoney were tossed from the ring in Paterson one night. Billy's money was withheld and when Eddie Harvey told him so at the door, he crashed through it in getting back into the club. Harvey heard u tremendous racket in the office, and Smith came out with the coin. "On the way back to New York on the train. Smith saw a colored fellow who had swiped a pair of shoes fr >m him seven yeors before. He whaled the daylights out of the fellow and nil hflnds wore pinched at the next ptatlon. They had an awful time gel- ting out. "That stuff about Griffo standing on n handkerchief and defying anyone to hit him in the face, is true. "Griffo and Smith were on the outs for a time. Smith nnkled into the saloon one night and seeing Griffo at (he bar, hurled a spittoon at the Australian. Griffo saw it coming in the locking glass and moved his large head just enough to let it tick his ear. The mon was a marvel. He could even slip cuspidors—with his back turned.
