PRESTATYN GYMNASIUM. Mens Sana in Cnrpore Sano Dear Mr Editor,-This latin proverb was the motto adopted by the Liverpool Gymnasium when it was established in its fine building forty years ago, and the same motto, I think, might very appropriately be now adopted by the Prestatyn Gymnasium Com- mittee. Without further preliminary I should like to suggest that the Prestatyn Gymnasium Committee proceed at once, to what I think, most would agree to, viz., the getting up of an open air or high road rowing club con- sisting of a crew of seven of the members, viz, six oars-men and a coxswain. With your permission Mr Editor, I shall be prepared all being well, by about the middle of this month to submit for public inspection in your window, a drawing to a scale of an inch to a foot, which will give the public mind a much clearer idea of the principle of this high road rowing boat than any written explanation could afford. I can, however, venture to say this much, that what I shall delineate on the drawing will be based upon the one-wheel, as being the- medium of conveying the motive power, and upon the thorough efficiency for which purpose I am now substantially satis- fied after my recent experience of it. I may further say that I have already written to a medical gentleman interested in the promotion of your gymnasium, asking him to broach the idea to the Committee, so that already we may presume that the boat (figuratively) has been launched.—Yours faithfully, Meliden, Nov. 1st, 1905 P. A. WILLIAMS. P.S.- —The rowing motion is acknowledged by all authorities in dynamics and athletics as being the best method of applying, a. man's muscular power.
