The article relates the author's meeting with a young suburban matron whom he seldom see, at a cocktail party. He and some friends were struck by the change in the appearance of the matron within six months that they have not seen her. They remembered her as being a bit on the pale and peaked side, but she became fairly blooming with an image of health and vigor. The woman claims that the lifting of her son's bar bells have helped her to stay in shape.
