OCOD HEALTH FOR W0ME.N.
Nervous headaches are often brought
albout by the abuses of tea and coffee,
many women Indulging In both these bev
erages to excess, and preferring them to
good, solid food.
Camphor, though an old-fashioned rem

the forehead will induce sleep.
A woman desires nothing more than
she dees a god figure, yet many women
spoil their complexion and general ap
pearance under the false impression that
smul'lness of the waist constitutes their
greatest beauty. They compress them
selves, into corsets sizes too small, and
the result Is Indigestion, a bad complex
ion, and an accumulation of disorders
most difficult to cure.
HyglenlcaHy speaking, the waist, with
corset on, should measure Just twice the
circumference of the neck. Very few
waists nowadays would stand such a test,
It Is to be feared.
High shoulders, abnormally large hips,
varicose veins, rounded' backs, pimples,
led nose, curvature of the spine, and in
ternal affections are all apt to result
from this practice of tight lacing.
Many women lace under the Impression
that men admire small waists. It is a
great mistake, for every man of any
common sense whatever has no liking for
an abnormally compressed figure.
