He has been taking infield practice and It would be no great sur- pT-lse to see him covering second base.

Lane betters him in lung strength and far surpasses him in the dip and pull wp , which means treat Bt remit h of cheat and uppev'arms. Their weights are almost identical. Another feature in connection with Lane's strength Is his great lun" capacity, which Instructor Melli<*an says is a very vital point. Lanes capacity is 553 liters, or 337.7 cubic Inches. Very few noted strong men have nad such a large and essential ung capacitv. Lane's record for the pu 1-up is second only to the record of 6a times made by Dr. H. H. S^lye, while a student at Amherst. The average man cannot pull up or dip more than twice, and it is said of the famous oarsman, Edward Hanlon, that he could not dip once. It is interesting to note- that in a preliminary trial of leg strength Lane broke a heavy iron hook attached to the machine, and in the final test he brought the Indicator with a snap 1 against the limit so that Instructor Nelligan declares that the record would have gone fully 75 kilograms higher had the cupacity of the machine allowed. Three important girth measurements are as follows: Chest, expanded, 39.1 inches; biceps, contracted, 13.5 inches; right thigh. 21.7 inches.

His wonderful performance stamps him as one of the strongest men in the world, and reflects credit Upon Dr Edward Hitchcock and In- sTuctor Nelligan. who have charge o the department of physical culture « Amherst.

Lane began a careful system of twining on the first flay of last January under the direction of Instructor Nelligan. His object was to set into condition for new records. Sin'"e then he has been hard at work practicing s.trength tests as adopted by the gymnasium directors.

BACK VIEW. his faithful worlc in the gymnasium, his frfshman record .is given as follows: Weifc'lit, 1ST pounds); pull up. 20 times; dlp-"0 times; lung's, 37.D pounds; back," 4<H pounds; legs, 512.6 pounds; right foi-e;irm. 81.4 pounds; left forearm, 68.J pounds; total strength, 3,616.7 pounds; lunjr nnpacity. .-JflO litres. As Lane weitrhs only thirteen pounds more than he did four years ago, the above comparison sh.ovvs that there has been a gro-vth of muscle, not 1 of fat. Lane now holds the college record for dip. strength of b*ck and legs, and has lied the record for the rlprht forearm. The colleee average for total strength Is 4S2 kilograms, or 1.0fi0.4 pounds. Few men In college can pull up or dip more than fifteen times. At the beginning of this term the Idea came to him to try for" a college record at his senior and final examination, so during, the past two months he has pursued his dally training under the supervision of Instructor Nellisan. with the above very gratifying results. Lane w.is born at Keeno. N. H., April 2, 1S71. His father Is a prominent, business man and manufacturer of Keene. and was formerly a director of the Connecticut River rail- con d The Lane family has always had some local repute for strength of arms, and young Lane grew up with a fondness for light gymnastic work. He fitted up a simple gymnasium in his home, and while in the high school pursued regular worlc in the gymnasium. He graduated from high school at the head of his class in JSS9. and took two years of special Study before entering Amherst. Mi)l«r'» I-atest Portrait.

LANE. physical department; Dr. Seelye, his as- sl'tant, and Instructor Nelligan were all present during the trial, which lasted about an hour and a half. Their pre B ence and participation in the examination and test Insures the perfect reliability of every figure given. To faciliate comparison with other records the measure• men is were made according to the system arranged by Dr. Hitchcock of Amherst, Dr. Sargent of Harvard, and Dr. Anderson of Yale, and adopted by the American Association for the Advancement of Physical Education. This system is in use at Harvard, and differs in only two or three points from the one ordinarily used at Amherst. The total strength is secured as follows: One-tenth of the weight Is multiplied by the sum of the number of times the roa.n dips and pulls up with his arms; to this is added the strength of lungs, legs, back, and forearm, (or grip), and the sum of all gives the total strength. Lane's figures are as follows: Weight, 150.7 pounds, or CS.a kilo- jcrarns. Pull up, 4S times. ' Dip. 4r> times. Strength of back. 330 kilograms, or .1. pounds. '• Strength of legs. CM kilograms, or I.o64 pounds. Strength Of lungs. 2-t kilograms, or Si P °Strangth of right forearm, 72 kilograms, or 153.-I pounds. Strength of left forearm, 5S kilograms, or 127.6 pounds. Total strength. 1.737.5 kilograms, o.SA> pounds, or nearly two tons. The previous record was hfld by E. Klein of Harvard, whose total strength Is 1445 6 kilograms, or 31SO.S pounds. S. L Foster Harvard, 'S3,'has a record of 1348.8 kilograms, or 2967.3 pounds. H. R. Na»h Tufts, '97. holds the next best record at 1302 kilograms, or 2S64.4 pounds. jt is Interesting to compare the Individual tests (of Lane and Klein, and E0 te where the former Is superior. Klein's figures are as follows: Weight, 150 pounds; pull up. 10 tim«s; dip 20 times; back 748 pounds: leys. IS^S pounds; lungs, 50.6 pounds; right forearm. 171.6 pounds; left forearm. 138.6 seen that while Klein's back. for Infants and Children. of Ca.tori* T»h the million, of p.r.on.. r «rmit n. to .p.ak -• » ^ithoot th. be.t remedy for Ittf«»t tk. world h« know*.
