Walking ripen the ideas, develops the memory, & becomes a good auxiliary to the work of the mind. Walking also dissipates gloomy ideas, vapors of melancholy, & hypocondriacal affections. Walking provokes appetite, assists digestion, accelerates the general circulation and respiration. It also brings fluids to the skin, thereby increasing cutaneous exhalation, it augments calorification & makes one resistant to the cold. Running favors the development of the chest, dilates the lungs, and if moderate preserves the lungs from dangerous & inveterate diseases.
Clias, 23, 25.
