If you wish to have a healthy

around your waist, Dysposia with
girls and women is ofien earned by
reason ot tightness ot clotlmig over
the stomach. With men it is often
cau?cd by the high waist-baud on
their pantaloons or drawers, worn
tight about the bodv over the nit of
the stomach. Let all your clothing
be thoroughly loose at that point.
Bad as tight clothing is on any part
of the body, there is no placj where
it can be more productive of disease
than at, or about, or over the stom
