horizontally to the right with the palm up, and the left arm is in the military position, as explained in No. 2.

No. 63.- First Movements (Half Circles)—REAR. At this command, the student will describe the rear arc -A B C, Fig. 19, carrying the arm into the position of the dotted arm i, and the front arc D E F, thus recovering the commencing position, four times; then, at the command, Front, reversing the direction of the motion, he will describe the arcs F E D and C B A four times; and finally, at the command, ALTERNATE, he will make this combined motion eight times by alternation, first describing the arcs A B C and D E F, and then the arcs F E D and C B A. Music for this Series on p. 208.

Second Position.

No. 64.–At the command, Second-Position, the student will simultaneously lower his right arm into the position of the lower dotted arm of Fig. 19, and extend his left arm horizontally to the left, thus taking the position that corresponds to that of No. 62.

No. 65.—First Movements. This class of movements, which is executed with the left arm, corresponds to that of No. 63, the motions being made in like manner.

Third Position. No. 66.- At the command, Third-Position, the student will take the position of the solid part of Fig. 20, in which both clubs are extended horizontally as far as possible to the left, the right forearm crossing sidewise over the head.

No. 67.First Movements—REAR. This class of movements, which is executed with both clubs simultaneously, corresponds to that of No. 65. The first motions from the third position are made by describing half circles, first to the rear, thus taking the position of the dotted arms and clubs at the left of Fig. 20, and then to the front, thus resuming the commencing position. To render the movements more marked, a slight pause will be made when the clubs arrive in position, both at the right and the left. Employ the Eighth Variety, p. 263.

No. 68.— Second Movements. From the position of Fig. 20, the arcs A B C and D E F will be described simultaneously, the front arc with the right arm and the rear arc with the left arm, thus taking the position of the dotted arms and clubs to the left of Fig. 20, when a corresponding front arc will be described with the left arm and a rear one with the right arm, thus resuming the commencing position. On the fourth resumption of the commencing position, at the command, CHANGE, these arcs will be described inversely the same number of times, the left arm first describing a

Fig. 20. front half circle and the right arm a rear one ; when, at the command, ALTERNATE, eight of these double motions from the position will be made by alternation, the right arm first passing to the front and the left arm to the rear.—The students will usually execute the movements of this Series as prescribed in No. 27, p. 143.

SECOND SERIES.

First Position. No. 69.—The instructor will command : 1. Combined Exercises ; 2. Second Series (Rear Contracted Circles and Half Front Extended Circles); 3. First-Position.

No. 70.–At the third command, the student will take the position of the solid part of Fig. 21. The club not in use, however, will usually be lowered, so that its end shall be in line with, and rest against, the shoulder.

No. 71.First Movements. In making the first motions of this class, the student will first describe the rear contracted circle A B C, Fig. 21; then the half front circle D Е, Fig. 22; and finally, by inversion, the half front circle E D, thus recovering the commencing position. The third time the arm is thus carried into the position of the dotted arm of Fig. 22, he will describe the rear contracted circle F G H; then the half front circle E D; and finally, the half front circle D Е, thus recovering the position of the dotted arm of Fig. 22, and making the second motions of this class. In conclusion, the third time the arm takes the position of the solid right arm, in making the

Fig. 21. second motions of this class, at the command, ALTERNATE, the right arm will first describe the rear contracted circle A B C, Fig. 21; then, the half front circle DE, Fig. 22; then, the rear contracted circle Fgh; and finally, the half front circle Ed. The last four motions, which are thus employed in alternation, will be made four times. The student will be required to thoroughly master this class of movements before proceeding further. Music for this Series on p. 188.

Second Position. No. 72.-At the command, Second-Position, the student will take the position to the left, corresponding to that of No. 70.

No. 73.—This class of movements, which is executed with the left arm, corresponds to that of No. 71, the motions being made in like manner.

Fig. 22.

No. 74.-At the command, Third-Position, the student will take the position of the solid part of Fig. 20, No. 66.

No. 75.First MovementsRear. This class of movements, which is executed with both clubs simultaneously, corresponds to

accompanied by the right arm.— The class will usually execute the movements of this Series as prescribed in No. 27, p. 143.

THIRD SERIES.

First Position.
No. 76.— The instructor commands : 1. Combined Exercises ;
2. Third Series (Front Extended and Rear Contracted Circles); 3.
First-Position.

No. 77.At the third command, the student will take the position of the solid part of Fig. 5, No. 14.

No. 78.First to Tenth Movements, inclusive. The motions of these ten classes are made with both clubs simultaneously. The first motions of the first class are made by describing inner front circles (No. 19) with the right arm, and inner rear circles (No. 34) with the left; the second, by describing outer front circles with the left arm, and inner rear circles with the right. The first motions of the second class are made by describing inner front circles with the left arm, and outer rear circles with the right; the second, by describing outer front circles with the right arm, and inner rear circles with the left.— The first motions of the third class are the first motions of the first class; the second, are the first motions of the second class.—The first motions of the fourth class are the second motions of the first class ; the second, are the second motions of the second class. The first motions of the fifth class are made by describing inner front circles with the right arm, and inner rear circles with the left; the second, by describing inner front circles with the left arm, and inner rear circles with the right.— The first motions of the sixth class are made by describing outer front circles with the right arm, and outer rear circles with the left ; the second, by describing outer front circles with the left arm, and outer rear circles with the right.-The first motions of the seventh class are made by describing inner front circles with the right arm, and outer front circles with the left; the second, by describing inner rear circles with the right arm, and outer rear circles with the left.—The first motions of the eighth class are made by describing outer front circles with the right arm, and inner front circles with the left; the second, by describing outer rear circles with the right arm, and inner rear circles with the left.— The first motions of the ninth class are the first motions of the seventh class; the second, are the second motions of the eighth class.—The first motions of the tenth class are the first motions of the eighth
