Editor’s Note: “if the internal organs are prolapsed“?! Er. I imagine a lot of things shouldn’t be undertaken if that’s the case.

Skating is a fine exercise. It quickens the circulation and the respiration, aids digestion, exercises a great number of muscles, both of limbs and trunk of body, strengthens the ankles, and incidentally the nerves. Evils are to be found in wrong habits of dressing, the tendency to overdo through the fascination of the sport, the danger of taking cold by carelessly sitting down to rest when heated, or driving home after being warmed up by the severe exertion. A girl of good judgment, properly clothed, ought to be benefited by this charming out-door sport.
It should be begun very gradually at the opening of the skating season, and not undertaken if the internal organs are prolapsed.
