'The HOME PHSICIAN
AND GUIDE TO HEALTH
This work every home can afford
and should have.
It is a popular treatise on the cause
and prevention of disease. The vol
ume is not intended lo take the place
of the family physician, but to enable '
the reader to cooperate with him in
an intelligent way. Little has been
said about medicine in the cure of
disease.. This is in harmony with the
latest findings of medical men w ho
are turning from drugs to Nature's
methods. The score and more of
contributors to this book, each a
specialist in the subject upon which
he writes, who have studied the
home and know its needs, makes this
the most practical and up-to date
medical book published. Illustrated
with 16 plates in color and more than
220 other clrawnings and photographs
