    The Hygienic Family Physician

    THIS is the title of a work recently published at this Office. As the title suggests, it is a work especially designed for family use. The style in which it is written is such as to render it perfectly intelligible to all classes, as it is quite free from technical terms and phrases which are of such frequent occurrence in nearly all books of this kind which have previously appeared as to render them more or less objectionable. It is, nevertheless, “a complete guide for the preservation of health and the treatment of disease without the use of medicine.”HBH 1a.1

    The work is written in four parts. The subjects treated are, in Part I., Health and Hygienic Agents; Part II., Disease and Drugs; Part III., the Bath; Part IV., Diseases and their Treatment. A more minute description of each part is found below. This work is of a thoroughly practical nature, and should be in the hands of every family in the land, as it affords instruction of the most vital importance. Directions for the treatment of disease are so plain and minute that any person of ordinary intelligence with its assistance may successfully treat nine-tenths of all the cases of disease which occur in any neighborhood. The publishers have placed the price so low that the book may be obtained by any one who feels at all in need of such a work.HBH 1a.2

    Published at the Health Reformer Office. Cloth, bound, 380 pp. Price, post-paid, $1.00.HBH 2a.1

    Or, a Solemn Appeal Relative to Solitary Vice, and the Abuses and Excesses of the Marriage Relation. We do not hesitate to say that this is the best work of the kind now in print in our country. It is gathered chiefly from the writings of the ablest and best writers upon the subject. Of this subject, and this work, the compiler in his preface says:—HBH 5a.6

    “It is disagreeable to call attention to those sins of youth, and the abuses and excesses, even in the married life, which are ruining the souls and bodies of tens of thousands; especially so, while feelings of great delicacy, relative to the subject, exist in the public mind. But disagreeable though the task may be, facts, terrible facts of every-day observation, fully justify a solemn and faithful warning to all. We would cherish the profoundest respect for the delicate feelings of the truly modest and the really virtuous; but we confess our want of respect for that false delicacy in many which takes fright at the mention of those vices, in consequence of which, they themselves exhibit evident marks of rapid decay.HBH 5a.7

    “The reader may as well prepare at the first, by laying aside feelings of false delicacy, if he is troubled with them, to be benefited by the painful facts, plainly stated in this work. The real value of the lengthy article onHBH 6a.1


    Cannot be estimated by dollars and cents. Every youth in the land should read it. And not only the youth, but every parent and guardian, should study it well, and be prepared in a proper way to warn those children under their immediate care. And let every mother be stirred by the article under the caption ofHBH 6a.2


    It comes from a mother’s heart-from one who has had experience in laboring for the unfortunate victims of secret vice, and is imbued with the importance of the subject. The extracts entitledHBH 6a.3


    Although unveiling many dark pictures, are entitled to consideration as the utterances of one whose extensive study of human nature has qualified him to speak to the point on this important subject.”HBH 6a.4
